Doctor Who

While the tenth season or series as the Brits call it starts just around the corner on April 15th for Doctor Who, rumors swirl that both Peter Capaldi and his brand new companion Pearl Mackie will both be leaving at the season’s end. Chris Chibnall (Broadchurch) is taking over the showrunner duties from Steven Moffat and while Capaldi’s exit was pretty much confirmed by Capaldi himself, now Mackie’s role as the new companion is in question. Check out the new trailer and statement from the BBC about the issue. (more…)

Of course, this is England we’re talking about, so there’s actual, literal bets being placed, and for those looking to make the safe bet, there’s a new contender worth looking at… (more…)

It’s been a long wait for more Doctor Who with only a singular Christmas special to satisfy our appetite for the time traveller from Gallifrey in the last 13 months, and we’re still going to have to wait a couple of months more for the very anticipated tenth season. Of course, you knew that the upcoming series of Doctor Who was going to be the last for showrunner Steven Moffat, but as fate would have it, it’s also going to be the last for the present Doctor, Peter Capaldi. It’s time for “different challenges,” according to the 12th man to be called, The Doctor. (more…)

It was screened in cinemas across the world starting from Boxing Day for fans outside of the UK. (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.
