  1. Watch Peter Capaldi Explain Turning Down a Chance to Play the Doctor Because He Was Too Big a Fan

    This is heavy.

    In a video just posted on the Doctor Who YouTube page, Peter Capaldi admits to something shocking. He had the chance to audition for Doctor Who previously and TURNED. IT. DOWN. Well, there's a bit more too it than that.

  2. Jenna Coleman Still Not Confirmed for Next Season of Doctor Who

  3. Doctor Who News Roundup: Comedian Cast, New Scriptwriter Announced, And a Crazy Moffat Star Wars Rumor

    We've got more news than Satellite 5!

    The eighth season of Doctor Who doesn't premiere until August, but we're hearing more and more news about it all the time. For example, comedian and actor Sanjeev Bhaskar (pictured above) is apparently going to be a part of the finale episode, which is pretty rad. Oh, also, we heard this really weird rumor about Steven Moffat and Star Wars that we obviously need to discuss, because what now?

  4. Today in British TV: Paul McGann’s Pick for Lady Doctors, “Brilliant” Peter Capaldi, Sherlock Alum Joins Ripper Street

    Timey wimey, spacey wacey.

    Plus: Paul McGann says a Doctor Who video that set the ‘net abuzzing when it was released before the 50th Anniversary special will be getting a sequel. This news is not as good as it could be.

  5. What Do the Stars and Original Creator of Doctor Who Have to Say About a Female Doctor?

    Essay

    This past Wednesday, many of us chatted about Steven Moffat's remarks concerning casting a female in the titular role of Doctor Who. It seemed like a good idea to delve into the opinions of other people who have been involved in the program, as well as some of those who've played the Time Lord hero who makes a habit of transforming his body in order to avoid death.

  6. Doctor Who Gets a New Actor, More Moffatsplaining

    Like mansplaining, Moffatsplaining involves giving an explanation that's far less helpful than the speaker thinks it is. For example: That time Steven Moffat explained the plot hole about the departure of Amy and Rory, or the plot hole about the Statue of Liberty. This time he's turned his Moffatsplaining powers to the Doctor's not-death on Trenzalore. We also have a new actor, Matt Smith talking about how his generation scene could have been a lot darker than it ended up, and Paul McGann on why he probably won't be coming back to Doctor Who any time soon. Allons-y!

  8. 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.

  14. Why I Spoiled the Paul McGann Regeneration, and Why I Would Do it Again

    If it's good enough for the BBC...

    Paul McGann regenerates into John Hurt in the latest Doctor Who minisode, and I spoiled it in the headline of my article about it -- and spoiled it again just now. We've gotten a few comments asking if I really had to spoil it, and frankly -- yes. Here's why.

    Wibbly Wobbly Timey Wimey Stuff

    While British actor Paul McGann only got to play the Doctor on screen once, he's continued the role of the 8th Doctor for several years in Big Finish audio dramas and has never lost affection for the sci-fi series. So wouldn't it be nice, says this fan, if he appeared in the 50th anniversary special?

    I contemplated titling this "Five Classic Doctors Returning for Doctor Who's 50th Anniversary"—which is technically true—but that's a little mean, plus I'd rather not deal with the aftermath. :)

  20. U.K. to Commemorate Doctor Who 50th Anniversary With Stamps

    Sometimes I forget that stamps are still a thing, because we live in the future now, but then something tremendous happens in regards to stamps that reminds me of their existence. The United Kingdom's Royal Mail service is commemorating the 50th Anniversary of Doctor Who with a series of stamps featuring all 11 doctors. There's even a miniature sheet featuring the TARDIS, Daleks, the Ood, Cybermen and Weeping Angels. Sadly they'll only be available in the U.K., and I imagine they'll sell out quickly. Perhaps even sadder, there's no K-9 stamp. Poor little guy can't get any love.
