You love Doctor Who, right? Of course you do.  After all, the series didn’t survive for over 50 years without a fan base (yes, there were plenty of periods of time within that five decades that did not include DW on television but let’s just ignore those, shall we?).  One of the wonderful aspects of the series is that it continues to change while still remaining fundamentally the same at its core.  One of the ever-changing roles within the TARDIS is that of the Doctor’s companion.  Well, as the old saying goes, all good things must come to an end, and the upcoming season will bring with it a new companion, as Jenna Coleman, who has played companion Clara Oswald for two seasons, will be leaving the TARDIS for even bigger…Who are we kidding? There really is nothing bigger than the TARDIS, so let’s just leave it at “leaving the TARDIS”. That’s better. (more…)

I love the team up shenanigans of Nick Frost and Simon Pegg. Those two guys have great chemistry and equally perfect comedic timing. They’re not equal stars though, as the rotund Frost always plays second fiddle to Pegg, who would play goofy best friend to a more dashing actor himself. That’s one of the many reasons why the movie industry is so messed up. And Frost is cool and all, but unlike other Whovians, I didn’t lose my shit when I saw that he was playing Santa Claus in the annual ‘Doctor Who Christmas Special.’ If I’d hadn’t read his name in the source article, I wouldn’t have known it was Frost. I think having Santa around for the show is cool enough. But we’ll talk more about the episode and watch the trailer after the jump. (more…)
