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

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!

Classic Doctor Says He’s Back For the 50th, But Don’t Get Your Hopes Up Just Yet

We’re going to be skeptical about this because the first rule of Doctor Who 50th Anniversary speculation is, of course: trust no one. Warning: click the jump and you enter the realm of spoilers!

Neil Gaiman Discusses His Contribution To Doctor Who’s TARDIS & Its Dislike Of Clara

BBC America invited The Mary Sue on a very special press conference call with Neil Gaiman in advance of his Doctor Who episode this weekend. “Nightmare in Silver” is the prolific author’s return to the show as well as the return of the Cybermen. While we were thrilled to hear him speak about his new ideas and the experience writing the episode (it’s a fun one!), we were very curious to know what his thoughts were on Clara’s seemingly troubled relationship with the TARDIS.

Five Classic Who Doctors Returning For 50th Anniversary Audio Drama

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. :)

There Will Be No Classic Doctors Returning for Doctor Who‘s 50th Anniversary, Says Colin Baker

My deepest condolences, Classic Whovians. In an interview with Doctor Who TV, Sixth Doctor Colin Baker said that he won’t be returning to Doctor Who for the show’s 50th anniversary… and that none of the other pre-Nine Doctors will be either.

Asked whether he’d been asked about reprising his role, Baker replied: “No. As far as I know, neither of any of [sic] my erstwhile colleagues have been asked either.”

Amy Mebberson Variant My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic/Doctor Who Comic Cover Is Timey-Wimey

We thought it was pretty cool news when IDW Publishing announced they were doing a My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic comic book from Katie Cook and Andy Price. We thought it was very cool when the first issue had over 90,000 pre-orders. What comes after very? That’s the word I need right now. Midtown Comics in New York has an exclusive variant cover for issue two from Amy Mebberson (of Pocket Princess fame) featuring Time Turner, the in continuity Doctor Who pony. And he’s wearing a Tom Baker scarf! And a Weeping Pony Angel!! This is too much to handle! You can put in an advanced order for it (while supplies last!) on Midtown Comics’ website.

The Mary Sue Interviews Caroline Skinner of Doctor Who

The modern era of BBC’s Doctor Who has been lucky to have some fantastic Executive Producers in its time. There was Russell T. Davies of course, Julie Gardner, Phil Collinson, Piers Wenger, and most recently, Steven Moffat. But new to the ranks for Season 7 is Caroline Skinner, who just happened to also be an Executive Producer on Masterpiece’s The Ruby in the Smoke starring Doctor Who’s Matt Smith and Billie Piper. Familiarities aside, Skinner has a big job ahead of her but is up to the task. She’s a life-long Whovian and thinks Season 7 will be the best yet. Read on to hear what she had to tell us in our recent interview session and check out our chat with star Karen Gillan if you haven’t already!

Will Christopher Eccleston Return For Doctor Who’s 50th Anniversary?

Ok look. I know people are mad about Matt Smith these days but we owe a great debt of gratitude to Christopher Eccleston for playing a part in relaunching Doctor Who in 2005. With the big Who anniversary coming up next year, fans have been speculating just how many Doctors will be returning to the show. So far, all signs have pointed to Eccleston not making a return but thanks to some new quotes we can speculate he might give it a go. We also have some news about the upcoming Christmas Special and how the alternate-Ninth Doctor, Richard E. Grant, could factor in.
