Things get all Wibbly Wobbly Timey Wimey for the good Doctor this Christmas, but it looks more Bomb-ly Wobbly to me. This season of joy will include a long weekend of binge watching Doctor Who to catch up for this Nerd Bastard. Will you be spending your Christmas with the Doctor? (more…)
Shortly after the premiere of “The Day of the Doctor,” there were some rumors of even bigger revelations to come for Doctor Who aside from the discovery that Gallifrey survived the Time War and is still out there in space somewhere. Now we all know that Peter Capaldi is taking over for Matt Smith as The Doctor come the end of this year’s Christmas special, but word started leaking out that the twist in “The Time of the Doctor” has The Doctor confronting his mortality as the 13th and final regeneration of the Time Lord.

So now that everyone’s had time to digest the anniversary special, “The Day of the Doctor,” we can look ahead with anticipation, and maybe even a little dread, to Matt Smith’s Doctor Who swan song, the forthcoming Christmas special.

And what impact will there be going forward? Spoilers ahead, obviously. (more…)
Fifty years of Doctor Who came to an end yesterday. Fifty years of running from responsibility, from authority, from his past; The Doctor hasn’t stopped running since he stole that Type 40 TARDIS and took off. And now, beginning with these next 50 years, The Doctor finally knows where he’s running to: home.
Steven Moffat promised the 50th anniversary special would forever alter the course of Doctor Who, and for once, The Moff wasn’t lying. (more…)

Every day brings a new Star Wars Episode VII tidbit. In case you missed yesterday’s casting bits, Jason Flemyng tweeted (and then deleted) a picture of his Star Wars audition script.

Okay, at this point, even I’m beginning to feel a little burnt out on all the Doctor Who.
