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…)
This week we celebrate the 50th birthday of Doctor Who, and while we remember all the good times and happy memories, we also have to keep in mind that 15 year dry spell when the BBC was cranking out no new episodes of Doctor Who. The series was cancelled after a 26 year stretch due to low ratings and production cuts, and aside from the one, singular TV movie that aired on Fox in 1996, the Time Lord was not seen in new adventures on TV screens again till 2005.

It’s too bad that a Paul McGann led Doctor Who wasn’t this popular back in 1996. The Fox Network produced TV Movie Doctor Who, which was the sole appearance of McGann as the Eighth Doctor, has been long treated as canon, but the actor’s appearance in last week’s webisode “The Night of the Doctor” has at least one fan wondering if maybe there shouldn’t be more McGann.

As our own Sarah Moran observed this morning, if you haven’t had a chance yet to see the new Doctor Who pre-”Day of the Doctor” minisode, “Night of the Doctor” then drop what you’re doing and watch it now. Good, so now that you’ve watched it, read below to learn what mastermind Steven Moffat has to say about that blast from the past, and how and why he thought it was a good idea to bring this person back to the TARDIS after all this time.

With the coming of the almighty Doctor Who 50th Anniversary Special, it’s only natural that Who fans both old and new should expect something profoundly amazing from showrunner Steven Moffat. To many of us that means bringing in multiple Doctors and letting us get our nerd-boners up as we see our favorites returning to the screen for at least a little while. And while David Tennant will be making an appearance (along with once-companion Billie Piper), Christopher Eccleston is a no-show. So what’s the deal, Moffat? (more…)
Every once in a while, Doctor Who’s showrunner Steven Moffat steps up and lets us know what’s on his mind. He usually tends to get more vocal when something is happening in Who-land, such as an impending change of Doctor during a particular 50th Anniversary Special. This time around, Moffat rehashes an old issue and gives his two cents on the likelihood of a female Doctor as well as discussing a Who-monster that may not be making a return to the show (at least during the remainder of his tenure). Check out what he had to say along with some 50th Anniversary air date news after the jump.
