We almost had Brian Blessed in Series 9 of Doctor Who

Bollocks! Bollocks! Bollocks! While I’m terribly disappointed about the news, the fact that he had to pull out doesn’t come as a huge surprise. We all wish the mighty shouty one and his magnificent beard a speedy recovery, and hopefully we can look forward to hearing his booming voice and kingly laughter echoing… » 4/19/15 3:42pm 4/19/15 3:42pm

Flash: The timeline that never was!

Like many shows The Flash has invited back actors associated with a previous incarnation of the character. Much like Smallville invited everyone from Christopher Reeve(Superman, duh!), Dean Cain(Superman), Marc McClure(Jimmy), Helen Slater(Supergirl) to Lynda Carter (wonder woman) that technically has no film/tv show… » 4/16/15 10:51am 4/16/15 10:51am

The Seven Wonders Of The Universe that were cut from Doctor Who

In early drafts for Mummy on the Orient Express, the opulent space train was supposed to be making a round trip of the Seven Wonders of the Universe*, stopping off at various scenic locations while the passengers and crew… » 3/30/15 11:35pm 3/30/15 11:35pm

Everything is Awesome with a Classic Lego Doctor Who console room v2.0

While it looks like we may be getting an official Doctor Who Lego set later this year, in all likelihood, it will be based off the current series. Which is fine, especially if it in any way compares to this absolutely glorious reproduction of Matt Smith's console room that somebody recently came up with. But some of… » 3/12/15 6:00am 3/12/15 6:00am

A Post-Christmas Listmas: Ranking the Doctor Who Holiday Specials

The week between Christmas and New Years is a time of weird, unspoken traditions: returning unwanted gifts, throwing out near-dead trees, stockpiling eggnog before it vanishes for another year. And for some of us, it's a time to go on the internet debate the quality of the latest yuletide adventure of that charming… » 12/28/14 4:43pm 12/28/14 4:43pm

Even Tom Baker has his Orson Wells moments (NSFW audio)

I went on YouTube this afternoon, trying to find a copy of the 70's commercial where Tom Baker and an annoying robot espouse the magic of the Etch-a-Sketch. Sadly, all I could find was this partial clip, but I did stumble across an audio only recording of Tom having a very Wellsian interlude recording an advert for… » 12/07/14 11:56pm 12/07/14 11:56pm
