British Tabloids Publish Nudes of the Female Doctor Who and Holy Crap, What’s Happening? We’re Being Invaded By Some Kind of—”EXTERMINATE!”
I don't know how long I'll have to type. Earth is under attack by the Daleks and they've already taken out the power grid in New York City. I'm running my computer on battery power and will post this via a wifi network generated from my phone. Things are looking bleak. If you can read this right now, pray for us.Read More
The whole point of a security robot is to protect people and/or things, which makes a recent incident with one in the real world (in case you hadn't realized we'd reached that level of "future" yet) that much more upsetting. A 300-pound, Dalek-shaped security robot knocked down a toddler and then proceeded to run the child over.Read More
Meet Jake, a service droid who's been making appearances at the Star Wars Launch Bay in Disneyland.Read More
Did you catch the premiere of Doctor Who on BBC America last night? Well, if you haven't, don't watch this teaser for next week's episode ("The Witch's Familiar")!Read More
Now if only we could get The Beatles in there...
A Dalek takes a stroll around Seattle during Emerald City Comicon. All it needs is The Beatles walking in front of it to make a sci-fi homage to the Abbey Road album. Photoshop, anyone?Read More
"Do you validate parking?" "VAL-I-DATE! VAL-I-DAAAAAATE!"
Wow. I wish Microsoft took personal computer security as seriously as they clearly do in the physical world at their offices. Their Silicon Valley campus now has five security robots that look frighteningly like Daleks. Leave it to a bunch of nerds to assume the appearance of a Dalek will strike fear into the hearts of criminals.Read More
In which we can't ignore Star Trek.
We're off and running (quite literally as is usually the case with Doctor Who) for Season 8. The most recent episode brought the daleks into play once again but was the execution unique or a repeat of the road often traveled?Read More
EXTERMI-Holy crap, you're Peter Capaldi!
We've seen a bit of both of these before in trailers but BBC America just posted two full clips from Saturday's episode of Doctor Who.Read More
"And I thought they smelled bad on the outside."
Capaldi's Doctor is upon us, and next week we'll get to see how he handles (Handles?) the Daleks. Take a look at some pics from the episode featuring new characters with a Reservoir Dogs, color-based naming scheme!Read More
The Capaldi has the phone box!
While we eagerly await tonight's premiere of Doctor Who Season 8, Peter Capaldi is here to tide you over with a chat about his favorite Who villains and his absolute love of the show.Read More
Donate all the money!
Artist Julie Dillon is running a Kickstarter campaign for this gorgeous book of fantasy art called Imagined Realms, a book of "positive and diverse illustrations of women in fantasy and science fiction," and we are definitely going to be donating. (via io9)Read More
Things We Saw Today
And then the guy who found it probably pissed himself.
Now, you have a handy replacement for your irrational fear that a shark hides in the depths of any body of water you get into! Hey, at least Daleks don't exterminate so well under water. Or at least, it seems like they don't because the one that was recently found in a UK pond was completely broken down—unless that's just what it wants us to think.Read More
It Goes Ding When There's Stuff
If there's one thing we didn't need amplified to qualify as "the world's loudest," it's the voice of Daleks, because they're pretty annoying to listen to at any volume. That didn't stop Massive Audio, a car audio company, from constructing the world's loudest bluetooth speaker into a life-size Dalek replica.Read More
Let's just hope Doctor Who writers don't see this as some kind of weird dare.
We're imagining that there's either some kind of geek STD outbreak in the UK, or they're just tired of geeks making so many little geeks, because their Centre for HIV and Sexual Health has put out a geek-centric PSA about proper condom use. To be fair, we'd definitely have paid more attention if sex education involved Daleks and the Hulk.Read More
How does a Dalek prepare for Christmas? Well, by trimming a tree, of course - just a touch differently than the rest of us! From John Smith (the creator of that incredible Doctor Who/Sherlock crossover), this little holiday card from everyone's favorite exterminators is both heartwarming and horrifying.Read More
