It’s the time of year for the Doctor Who Christmas Special and let’s not forget it’s been about a year since the last season of Peter Capaldi‘s Doctor Who aired so DW fans are pretty much chomping at the bit for some more of the good Doctor. There’s a new trailer for the BBC Christmas Day Special that gives us a much better look at what the Doctor will be up to this time around, there’s superheroes, brains in jars, lots of snow and running. Check it out below. (more…)

Normally the confines of Madison Square Garden are reserved for the Rangers of hockey and the Knickerbockers of basketball, but today it was full to honour the arrival of the Doctor of Gallifrey. For the most part, 2016 has been Who-less, and we’ve been feeling the effects, but when Doctor Who comes to New York Comic Con, then that’s reason to celebrate for sure. Who stands on the cusp of major change, we’re going into the last season for showrunner Steven Moffat, and the introduction of an all-new companion, but in the meantime, the conversation has turned to Christmas, and NYCC lent insight into the Doctor’s latest holiday adventure.  (more…)

Long before actor John Barrowman blessed American audiences as the new Ra’s al Ghul on Arrow (and now the “Arrowverse” as a whole), the UK actor was a part of geek culture across the pond as the memorable Captain Jack Harkness on Doctor Who as its subsequent spinoff, Torchwood. First introduced on the BBC series as a time agent turned con man from the 51st Century, he quickly became a fan favorite as he briefly was one of The Doctor’s companions. After his character’s supposed death, he went on to become immortal after being brought back to life as a result of the time vortex. As a result of never being able to die, Captain Jack has been killed 1,409 times. The character then was stranded in the past and joined the Torchwood group monitoring alien threats and reshaped it to honor The Doctor (rather than hunt him). He has since had his own spin-off show Torchwood, a show that had a darker edge than the family-friendly Doctor Who, which went on for four seasons.

The BBC is about to release an animated version of one of the lost episodes of Doctor Who, The Power Of The Daleks which was only aired once and then destroyed back in the 70’s when the BBC decided to wipe and reuse the tapes for other shows. The story is considered by many to be one of the most significant in the long running series’ history, featuring the beginning of the second Doctor, Patrick Troughton. Luckily the audio recordings were not destroyed and along with some on set pictures and some surviving clips from the stories episodes, the BBC has been able to produce black and white animated episodes true to the original versions of The Power Of The Daleks.

In a move that is quite unusual in this Internet age, BBC America will be announcing the new Doctor Who companion this Saturday (April 23rd), hopefully before anyone on the Internet can find out and jump the gun a few days early. As the last episode ended, we found the good Doctor (Peter Capaldi) without a companion as his long time companion Clara Oswald (Jenna Coleman) became the girl who both died and lived. Who might this new companion be and when will we see that person on the small screen? (more…)

He’s the Doctor. He’s a Time Lord. He’s from the planet Gallifrey in the constellation of Kasterborous. He is 906 years old (at last count), and he’s the man to save your world from Daleks, Vashta Nerada infestations, the occasional horde of invading Cybermen and improptu wormholes that will allow swarms of ravenous metal aliens to reduce your world to dust. He’s coming back and the best part is, he’s probably got his best companion in tow for his special comeback…
