Doctor Who skipped SDCC14 this year, they’re too busy planning their world tour to attend, but that doesn’t mean they’re keeping quiet.

When you’re Head Writer and showrunner for a popular series, you’re bound to get a few of those too. Yeah, Steven Moffat talks a lot. People who talk a lot give useful interviews. Just ask SFX Magazine who recently sat down with our verbal stud and got him to sound off on the numbering of all 13 Doctors. It seems Mr. Moffat believes there was only 1 Doctor all along. Or something. (more…)

This waiting for the new season of Doctor Who is like waiting to get to the fireworks factory, but since we’ve all been good little Whovians these last few months, we’re getting our first peak at season 8 of the show, and of the Twelfth Doctor in action. I say peak because that’s all you’ll get, it’s the new Doctor’s silhouette – AGAINST THE BACKDROP OF AN EXPLODING TARDIS!!! Ahem. I mean an exploding TARDIS makes sense because the last time we saw it, it was crashing. The ongoing adventures of The Doctor (Peter Capaldi) and his companion Clara (Jenna Coleman) are certainly getting off to an incendiary new beginning, which will pick up from the Christmas special on BBC this August. Ready to get teased? (more…)
