It’s that time again… It’s happened before and it will happen again. The lead actor in the longest running science fiction franchise is leaving the show. Peter Capaldi has announced that season ten (relative to the 2005 relaunch) will be his last and he’ll be leaving as the Twelfth Doctor with head writer Stephen Moffat. […]

(It’s part of the grieving process. Don’t come at me.) This is the look on millions of Whovians’ faces right about now. […]

Sir John Hurt, one of the greatest actors of his generation, has passed on following a battle with pancreatic cancer. He was 77. In a career that spanned nearly six decades, Hurt assayed every type of role across every type of genre and was brilliant in all of them. It staggers me to consider the […]

Eddie Redmayne is rumoured to be the next Doctor Who – and a ginger one at that! “Still not ginger!” With those words, Matt Smith became the beloved 11th doctor, and highlighted a running joke that the world’s favorite Time Lord is continuously disappointed that he hasn’t regenerated into a redhead. Yet. Because that might […]

I Miss Capaldi. Oh! Look! A ‘Class’ Trailer!

It has now been over a year since we last saw Peter Capaldi as Doctor Who on our screens, and, well… I’m really starting to feel the weight of that absence.     Absence can have weight. It’s a paradox. Yes, it’s confusing. But at least it’s not as confusing as a Bootstrap Paradox. Anyway, […]

As part of my research into upcoming Doctor Who spin-off Class, I read Patrick Ness’ ‘A Monster Calls’. Ness is the creator/showrunner of Class, but is best known for his Young Adult fiction. I was determined to read some of that work before Class debuted. But frankly, I didn’t have time to read his award-winning […]

Rumours abound that Captain Jack Harkness is back for the Christmas Special… but not so fast, folks. This morning, my Facebook feed was ablaze with everybody posting a video of my #nohomo man-crush, Captain Jack Harkness, in a supposed teaser for the Doctor Who Christmas Special. But even though it’s true that he’s rumoured to […]

Fan-favorite Captain Jack Harkness might be back in blue for the Doctor Who Christmas Special. Doctor Who fans are going to have to wait until 2017 for a whole new season – but we can get a fix this December, when the annual Doctor Who Christmas Special launches onto our screens. And this year, the […]

When it was announced that Doctor Who would be taking a leave of absence over the 2016 TV season, Whovians around the world gave an audible groan. No new ‘Who’ until 2017? Impossible! Unthinkable! How would we make it through the dark, ‘Who’-less days with only the prospect of one paltry Christmas Special to look […]

Pearl Mackie is the new Doctor Who companion

Doctor Who fans were literally tortured on Saturday night, as the BBC made them wait until halftime during the football (soccer, to you Americans) to discover who the new companion would be. The FA cup semi-final showdown between Everton and Manchester United might have had half the country enthralled, but there probably wasn’t a Doctor […]
