Doctor Who anniversary

  1. Russell T. Davies on the Reality of Him Returning to Doctor Who For the 10th “Nu Who” Anniversary

    I never actually liked the term "Nu Who."

    Russell T. Davies stepped down as showrunner for Doctor Who five years after ushering the series back into the public consciousness in 2005. And hey, someone realized 2015 is the 10th anniversary of that relaunch so why don't we see what he has to say about that...

  2. Steven Moffat Admits He Was Really Nervous About Fan Reaction To The Doctor Who Anniversary

    The World Doesn't End Because the Doctor Dances

    Here at The Mary Sue, we're not used to hearing Doctor Who's Steven Moffat care all that much one way or another if fans like what he's doing with the long-running sci-fi series. That's why a recent piece in which he admits to being completely stressed out over the fan reaction to the 50th anniversary special is so refreshing.

  3. Steven Moffat Explains The Lack Of Christopher Eccleston In The War Doctor’s Regeneration

    The World Doesn't End Because the Doctor Dances

    If there was one thing missing from the Doctor Who 50th anniversary episode, it was Christopher Eccleston. As much as I knew he didn't want to return to the show, I was holding out hope they'd convinced him for the tiniest of cameos - a regeneration scene. Steven Moffat has finally explained why, even though the actor wasn't involved, they decided not to use his likeness. We also have some news on new writers coming to work on Doctor Who this season, none of which are women.

  5. 6 Reasons To Fear The Return of Doctor Who’s Time Lords

    If you haven't seen the Doctor Who 50th anniversary special, then you might want to stop reading because we're going to get a bit spoilery. Ok, still with us? As you know, "The Day of the Doctor" revealed Gallifrey and the Time Lords weren't actually destroyed at the end of the Last Great Time War. It just looked that way. In fact, they were banished to a pocket dimension and have been there since. The Doctor now has the possibility of finding his people and bringing them back. Recently, Doctor Who writer/actor Mark Gatiss said this might not be a good idea. He's not alone. Several creators and fans think the Time Lords bring a set of story problems that aren't worth the trouble and that previous showrunner Russell T. Davies did a good thing by eliminating them in the modern Doctor Who show that began in 2005. We'll get to why the return of the Time Lords could be a good thing but first, here are some reasons why the heroic Doctor himself may not want to bring back the society he turned his back on so many centuries ago...

  6. Mark Gatiss Questions Steven Moffat’s Idea Of Gallifrey Returning On Doctor Who

    Steven Moffat made some big moves in the Doctor Who 50th anniversary special, The Day of the Doctor. Big moves which included the canon-altering inclusion of the thought-dead Time Lords. While fans had mixed reactions to the idea, it seems frequent Moffat collaborator Mark Gatiss falls squarely on one side of the fence.

  8. Matt Smith and [Secret Guest Star] Didn’t Meet Before 50th Anniversary Special

    Wibbly Wobbly Timey Wimey Stuff

    The Doctor Who 50th Anniversary Special was a sweet love letter to Who fans complete with some delightful cameos from what can only be described as old friends.  It was, in this fan's opinion, a far more delightful and strong episode than Matt Smith's final episode, so if you haven't checked it out yet, you should. It turns out, one of the most exciting cameos happened under cover of darkness and without the guest star meeting Smith before filming. Spoilers abound after the jump!

  9. Agent of S.T.Y.L.E. – The Alternate Versions of Doctor Who

    Agent of S.T.Y.L.E.

    This year, the 50th anniversary special of Doctor Who, "The Day of the Doctor," introduced us properly to the War Doctor. This previously unknown incarnation of the hero, played by John Hurt, wore an outfit combining elements of the Eighth Doctor's with the leather jacket of the Ninth, plus a belt taken from a woman named Cass whom the hero had previously failed to save. "The Day of the Doctor" also featured another version of the hero who had previously only appeared in the novel Summer Falls by Amelia Williams (AKA Amy Pond). Over the years, there have been other interesting alternative takes on the Time Lord scientist of the planet Gallifrey. So this time around, we're looking at the "what could have been" and "almost were" versions of the Doctor, along with costumes the character has worn in licensed media. Fan-films and the like aren't included or we'd be here forever, even if we had a time machine.

  16. The Doctor Who 50th Anniversary Episode Has Already Broken a World Record

    …and no, it’s not for “most unsubstantiated Internet rumors based on a single episode of television.” No more “but will [insert actor here] really not be in it?,” “But when he said he’s involved, did he mean in the actual episode or some other part of the celebrations?,” or “Moffat says this, but he’s probably lying.” I don’t even know what to do with myself now that that’s all over.

    Ready for more Doctor Who? Yes? Good. Because Peter Davison, Colin Baker, and Sylvester McCoy have cooked up a short film about their quest to be in the 50th anniversary episode. Paul McGann's there too, as are some actors with cameos too amazing to spoil. The dimensions are a bit wonky, so I’ve placed it behind the jump. Let’s get timey-wimey!

  19. Waste Time At Work With Google’s Interactive Doctor Who Doodle

    the internet is serious business

    I mean don’t waste time at work. Clearly you would never do that. That is Bad. For some reason this interactive Google Doodle isn’t showing up on regular old google.com yet—maybe because it’s not the 23rd in the States yet? You can get around that by going to the French version of Google. Or, for the non-video game inclined, you can see in the video above what Google came up with. But the video misses out on the best part: If you die, you do indeed regenerate into the next Doctor. Are you following The Mary Sue on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Pinterest, & Google +?
