Doctor Who

Doctor Who Series 8

After the headaches from battling the cyber-crowds for registration to San Diego Comic-Con, then surviving the absolute debacle known as Hotel-Apocalypse, and finally snagging your parking pass from those lovely people over at ACE Parking, we have finally reached that magical time of year when SDCC announcements start dropping like new Tupac albums after he “died”.  With a little over a month left until hundreds of thousands of out-of-towners descend upon the streets of San Diego as they make their way to Geek Mecca, the first Hall H panel has been revealed, thanks to BBC.  If you are a fan of Doctor Who (and how could you not be??), it looks like you will want to be one of the thousands sitting in Hall H on Thursday, July 9.

Doctor Who is currently filming its second season with Peter Capaldi as the good Doctor. Joining him for an episode or perhaps two is Game of Thrones fan favorite Maisie Williams. When this bit of casting was first announced, there was no word on what type of character Williams would play, but now thanks to some new on set pictures and video, we’ve got a much better idea.

DOCTOR WHO - Steven Moffat

The initial run of Doctor Who went for 26 seasons and hundreds of episodes, and even before being revived by the BBC in 2005, it was already the longest running science fiction series in the history of television. So far, the new run of Who has gone for eight seasons, a dozen specials and has a ninth season currently in production for broadcast later this year. But how long can the party go on? Who is more popular than ever internationally, so the BBC would be crazy to pull the plug now, but realistically? Well, showrunner Steven Moffat says that there’s at least five more years left in Nu-Who. At least. (more…)

Apparently being a burgeoning bad ass in Westeros isn’t good enough for Maisie Williams, nor is, apparently, appearing on just one big TV show. The Game of Thrones actress has been cast for a guest starring role in an episode of the long-running sci-fi series’ ninth season, albeit as what, we’re not exactly sure. She could be a hero, she could be a villain, or she could be some random person that The Doctor helps. On the other hand though, Williams looks quite comfy at the controls of the TARDIS in the picture above, so it begs the question, are we looking at a companion in the making? After all, everyone has two franchises nowadays. (more…)

During his time as the Tenth Doctor on Doctor Who, we frequently saw David Tennant as the tortured, but now it looks like he’s going to be the one to do the torturing. It’s been announced today that Tennant has been cast in the important role of Zebediah Killgrave, AKA: The Purple Man, on the upcoming Netflix series from Marvel Studios, AKA: Jessica Jones. It’s the first bit of casting to be announced outside for the series outside of star Krysten Ritter as the title character and Mike Colter as her fellow Defender and lover interest Luke Cage. But given The Purple Man’s role in the mythology of Jessica Jones, get ready to be afraid, very afraid, of everyone’s favorite modern Doctor. (more…)

Russell-T-Davies

Fans of the iconic BBC sci-fi serial, Doctor Who, cite Russell T. Davies with reinvigorating the franchise both as a show runner, and for writing some of the more memorable episodes from seasons 1-4. It’s true, he brought the show into the 21st Century, but even RTD has to adhere to the most sacred tenants (pun intended) of the Time Lords – you can’t go back and revisit your own timeline.

In what should shock absolutely no Whovian on Planet Earth, Davies recently shared with RadioTimes that he had no plans of returning to Doctor Who as a guest writer in the foreseeable future:  (more…)

Last week we brought you the story of the Moder family in Florida that received a HOA (Home Owners Association) letter about the big blue call box in their driveway. That’s right Doctor Who‘s TARDIS was minding its own business, trying to fix its Chameleon circuits while parked in the Moder’s driveway and the neighborhood HOA took offense. What’s a Doctor Who fan to do when your TARDIS doesn’t get the usual love its grown accustomed to receiving from fans around the world? Throw a huge Doctor Who viewing party! (more…)

This just might be the one problem in space and time itself the good Doctor can’t talk his way out of, or fix with the quick use of his sonic screwdriver. A couple in Florida built a replica TARDIS, because: (A.) They are huge fans of the show, and (B.) They wanted to use it in their wedding photos. Their themed wedding pictures went off without a hitch and the happy couple found a spot, temporary most likely, for the TARDIS in the driveway. Then the one power in the universe that even the Doctor wisely fears reared its ugly head, the dreaded Lexington Home Owners Association of Tampa Florida. (more…)
