Doctor Who

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…)

While many fans wondered if this year’s Doctor Who Christmas Special would be the last appearance of Jenna Coleman‘s companion character Clara Oswald. Amidst the ever bubbling and seemingly on target rumors that persisted the entire last season that Coleman would not be back, it was an easy prediction to get wrong. Now we’ve got confirmation from the lady herself. (more…)

‘Doctor Who’ Too Dark? Not According to Moffat

DOCTOR WHO - Steven Moffat

There may be a great many grown up nerds amongst its fan faithful, but Doctor Who was conceived, sold and continues to be marketed as a family show. Say whaaaaaaaaat? Yes, consider the Saturday at 8 pm timeslot, the lack of blood and bad language, and the hero’s aversion to violence and always using the power of his mind over a firearm. Yes, Doctor Who is meant for kids to enjoy every bit as much, if not more, than the adults who also enjoy it. But has it gotten too dark for those kids? Many people have been asking themselves that question, and now it’s Doctor Who executive producer Steven Moffat‘s turn to give us an answer. Spoiler alert: he doesn’t think it is. (more…)

doctor who death in heaven review

This season of Doctor Who is definitely one that grew stronger the longer it went on. Much of that was in allowing Peter Capaldi to grow more comfortable in his role as the Twelfth Doctor, and for him and Jenna Coleman to find their rhythm as Doctor and companion. But there were also the slowly developing threads linking The Doctor, Clara, Danny (Samuel Anderson), and eventually, Missy (Michelle Gomez) that once fully exposed made series 8’s finale so powerful.
