In a few hours we wave goodbye to Doctor Who, at least in the form of Peter Capaldi. And we get a double dose in David Bradley’s recreation of the First Doctor. Coincidentally, about 50 years ago we were also graced with a double Doc. Kind of. Second Doctor Patrick Troughton crossed swords with a devilish doppelganger…
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…
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:
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.
The Who crew marked Red Nose Day with a little paint job last week, but it reminded me that in days of yore anyone driving into the northbound lane of the Blackwall Tunnel would have spotted a red-hued TARDIS up on the left. Well, it was more a dirty pinky-mauve, but such is life. It was a weird little sight before…
Benedict Cumberbatch’s cockney cousin umpteen times removed wants to get his hands on the TARDIS keys when Peter Capaldi leaves that show. Royalty-gone-wrong Danny Dyer says he could even keep his diamond geezer accent. But another contender is putting his paw in the ring, CBBC mascot Hacker T Dog (who came second on …
Earlier today I trotted by Caernarfon Castle, an Edwardian fortress that sits on the river with fairy tale chic. The battlements have a new lodger, a twenty-foot gold-painted statue of the lass from Tiger Bay, Dame Shirley Bassey.
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…
Apparently it weighs quite a bit?
This is a long, drawn-out response I whipped up to x84jdh's post about some new AP style guides asking writers to tighten up their articles.
Okay, so it sort of is - Dorset Police are hoping the Box's association with Doctor Who might pull in a few Whovian tourists - but today's unveiling of an actual Police Call Box wasn't to drum up excitement for Series 8, but to help cut crime in the area.
Doctor Who fans made their own life-size Tardis. It takes off, flies above the countryside and it lands. Just like the Doctor, the fans may not always be in full control of the Tardis. The inevitable crash was caught on camera, of course!
… I've completely changed my opinion of Catherine Tate.
It hasn't been a week and someone's already put the TARDIS from Doctor Who in Starbound. The game's also got other great mods since its December 4 launch, including a new Toxic planet type and a whole new family of gathering tools, all hosted on their own dedicated modding site—and this is just the first five days.
As any child of the 80s will know, music videos used to be something special, to be cherished and admired while watching The Chart Show on a Saturday morning (in the UK) and MTV if you were a bit fancier.
Stefan Coburn, son of the writer Anthony Coburn - who scripted Doctor Who's first ever serial, An Unearthly Child - has revealed he's suing the corporation on behalf of his long deceased father, to claim ownership of the show's iconic Time Ship.
Don't ask, but I follow a few quilting things on Facebook.
That's Green Arrow and Artemis approaching a secret entrance, that looks...rather familiar.
