So if I have things right, this post will pop up ten minutes before those of us in the UK find out what that elephant was doing on the frozen Thames.
In Logopolis, the final hour for Tom Baker’s fourth incarnation of Doctor Who, the chanting mathematicians of that distant world have a natty little phrase. They are holding the death of the Universe at bay with their calculations and declare that “the essence of matter is structure, and the essence of structure is…
Are you sitting comfortably? Michelle Gomez has a story all for you ...
To-day’s new episode of Doctor Who, “Smile”, is certainly a step up from the last one Frank Cottrell-Boyce wrote, but considering the last episode he wrote was “Forest of the Night”, that’s not saying much. To give it more of the credit it deserves, “Smile” has some entertaining dialogue that’s also thoughtful…
CBC News report that the terraforming nanobots that swarmed over tonight’s episode of Doctor Who are named after a computer science professor from a Newfoundland university.
Sounds spooky! David Suchet’s introduction to the world of Doctor Who can be listened to with a special surround sound effect for headphones. Knock, Knock (Who’s there) will be broadcast on May 6.
You wait ages for a new Who and then several come at once. The list of potential names keeps getting longer but did BBC1 treat viewers to a backdoor pilot for what we can expect to follow Mr Capaldi?
Doctor Who’s weapon of choice, the handy sonic screwdriver gets an entry in the Oxford English Dictionary this June. The definitive dictionary cites Victor Pemberton’s 1968 script for The Fury from the Deep as the original appearance of the term.
Finally, a new episode of Doctor Who, the first one, not counting Christmas specials, since 2015. “The Pilot” sees the return of Peter Capaldi as the Twelfth Doctor, the best incarnation of the Doctor since the 2005 relaunch, with a story based on Echo and Narcissus—kind of an odd coincidence not long after I’d read a …
“Nothing’s sad ‘til it’s over. Then everything is.” Please discuss! It is just 15 minutes away from starting on the East Coast of the USA, and I’ll be watching it with family. After the pilot “The Pilot” of the new series, I’ll jump back in to discuss and give my impressions. Also: spoilers.
Within minutes of the the new Doctor Who airing, two British redtops claimed that Peter Capaldi’s replacement has started filming and will appear in the Christmas special.
Hello, Whovians! After rewatching “Heaven Sent” and “Hell Bent”, very carefully, mind you, I have absolutely no idea how the new season will begin, much less how it will end. Especially given:
Chat show host and Whovian Interruptus Supreme Graham Norton might have learnt something tonight. Exiting Time Lord Peter Capaldi was among guests on Norton’s show tonight and recounted an awkward moment during a public relations trip to Germany. Arriving in Berlin he was advised “not to mention the War.”
As the only person I know who listens to DVD commentaries, I was really tickled by the DVD commentary fiction, “Special Features”, included in the anthology Fifth Doctor Doctor Who audio play, The Demons of the Red Lodge and Other Stories. The other stories included in the collection aren’t bad.
It seems there may still be sparks to be stoked in the embers of the Coal Hill Gang. Despite talk to the contary (and I did a fair share of that) there may still be some fire to be rekindled in Doctor Who’s YA spin-off Class.
Matt Smith had a spiel in one of his Doctor Who episodes that Eleven only does “big days”, like Saturdays for example. A meta reference to the Time Lords’s traditional outpost as part the UK’s diet of weekend viewing, perhaps. For a time traveler Saturday Night might be a state of mind.
Ever since it was announced that this upcoming season of Doctor Who would be Peter Capaldi’s last, rumours have run rampant as to who will next be Who. I can now report, based on a highly reliable source, that I have learned the identity of the actor who’s been chosen to portray the thirteenth incarnation of the…
The BBC today have shockingly revealed that the next incarnation of everyone’s favourite face-changing pyscho with a sinister love for British 20-something women will be played by none other than former President of the United States George W. Bush and will no longer be a Time-Lord at all.
Isn’t this how Day of The Doctor ended? At least that chap from A Kick Up The Eighties isn’t around. And yes, I really wish they would post that clip on Red Nose Day sometime.
Hot damn! MST3K alumni Mike, Kevin, and Bill were being super secretive about the final film in their latest round of RiffTrax LIVE! events, and now we know why. They’ve teamed up with the BBC to live riff the 1983 Doctor Who 20th Anniversary special The Five Doctors!
