News and updates on Doctor Who, the long-running BBC time travel series currently celebrating its 50th Anniversary. Find out more about Matt Smith and 12th Doctor Peter Capaldi
Speculation about turning the hit BBC family sci-fi series, Doctor Who, in to a new movie has been around since Russell T Davies brought the show back to life ten years ago. In fact it was only earlier this year that Davies himself said he would be interested in writing for such a project, but now it would seem that Hollywood has beaten him to it! According to the Sun newspaper, a US studio is contemplating turning the hit show, which currently stars Pater Capaldi as The Doctor, into a blockbust
We can’t wait for the new series of Doctor Who, and to raise the excitement levels through the roof, those lovely people over at BBC have revealed that we will be getting a new monster as part of the deal. Series nine of the hit BBC Family sci-fi series is already shaping up to be one to remember, with guest stars including Rufus Hound and Game of Thrones star Maisie Williams so far confirmed as joining The Doctor (Peter Capaldi) and Clara (Jenna Coleman). Now the Daily Star newspaper has
When Russell T Davies brought Doctor Who back to life in 2005, nobody could have predicted how well it would have been received. In fact the show became almost as iconic as it had ever been in that first series of the regeneration, with an all-star cast thrusting the hit BBC family sci-fi show straight back into the realms of cult TV – So we were left a tad confused when The Doctor decided to jump Tardis after only one series. Christopher Eccleston was everything that The Doctor should be,
We were all super-excited to hear the news that Game of Thrones star, Maisie Williams, was to make a guest appearance on Doctor Who, and we were all equally intrigued to find out just what sort of character she would be playing. But now, she has opened up about her new part – Well, a bit anyhow. Fans of Game of Thrones have literally watched Maisie grow up in front of us, both on-screen playing the troublesome toy boy turned fierce warrior Arya Stark in the hit HBO fantasy series, and off-
Though as we reported recently, a new Doctor Who movie has been ruled out – which came as a disappointment to some Whovians – the good news is that we can expect the TV show to run for at least another five years. So sayeth Steven Moffat at any rate who, according to the Radio Times, has been talking to Doctor Who magazine about the long-running show’s future. He began by revealing, “I didn’t think it would last ten years,” before adding, “But it’s going to do a minimum of 15 [ye
There have been several Doctor Who films made over the years, and as fans of the show may know, Russell T Davies has revealed he would like to pen one. However, fans will also know that historically, there has only ever been a film made in order to bridge a gap between Doctors, but with Peter Capaldi only in his second year in the job, it seemed a bizarre proposal by Davies, who resurrected the show ten years ago, to start planning a movie now! And it would seem that current showrunner, Steve
Ever since current Doctor Who show runner Steven Moffat branched out to co-creating the hit BBC detective series, Sherlock, there have been talks of the super-power shows crossing paths. Of course, the very nature of each show has presented quite a few obstacles, the main one being that whilst one show relies on delving in to the realms of fantasy, the other’s MO is to prove reality beyond all reasonable doubt. By our reckoning this means that it could only ever be Sherlock (Benedict Cumbe
Having landed back in the UK fresh from touring the US, today Maisie Williams sets foot on the Doctor Who TARDIS to take up a guest role in the hit BBC One show, that returns to our screens this Autumn. Maisie has already found global fame and is renowned for her role as Arya Stark in the international fantasy drama series Game of Thrones. She also starred in the one-off docu-drama Cyberbully and was cast as one of the leads of Carol Morley’s drama The Falling. As well as being a three-time Sc
It is pretty hard to believe that it has been ten years since Russell T Davies dusted off the iconic Tardis and employed a new Doctor to drive it. Doctor Who has been part of British culture for over 50 years now, but that might not have been the case if it were not for Davies’ creative and enthusiastic genius. Because of his efforts and belief in the show, which was virtually thrown to the scrap heap back in the 1980’s, a whole new generation has now had the chance to hide from the
It must be every Doctor Who fans dream to date The Doctor’s companion, so we can imagine how self-confessed super fan, Richard Madden, felt when his long-term girlfriend, Jenna Louise Coleman was cast to play Clara Oswald in the hit BBC family sci-fi series a few seasons ago. The former Game of Thrones actor, who recently revealed he would love to make a guest appearance on the hit show but not all the time that Coleman is still on it, has been discussing just how much this situation lives
When we found out that Scottish The Thick Of It star Peter Capaldi was to be the next Doctor Who, we did wonder how much of foul mouthed Malcolm Tucker he would be bringing with him. Fans will know that Capaldi’s Tucker was a loud, aggressive and rude character, with almost every word projected in blue, so it stood to reason that the next Doctor would be a bit on the grumpy side too – but that is all about to change!
We were all left a little confused last year when, after it was highly publicised that series eight of Doctor Who and the following 2014 Christmas Special would be current companion Jenna Coleman’s last, but no exit came. So what happened?
Former Game of Thrones star, Richard Madden, has revealed that he would love a guest role on Doctor Who – But not all the time that his girlfriend, Jenna Louise Coleman is in the show! Madden, who played Robb Stark on the hit HBO fantasy series until his character was killed off quite spectacularly during the epic Red Wedding of series three, has been discussing his desire to appear in the hit BBC One family sci-fi series, but does not want to mix business with pleasure.
With the ninth series of Doctor Who looming ever closer, more details about the show’s new run have emerged, and have ncluded the news that Hettie MacDonald will be making a directorial return to the show, so Digital Spy reports! MacDonald – whose previous credits include Law And Order UK, Casualty and Poirot – is probably best known for directing the 2007 episode of Doctor Who, Blink.
We love nothing more than when Russell T Davies talks about Doctor Who, as it is guaranteed not to have been approved by the powers that be! In fact, it was only last month the former show runner admitted that he would probably be in trouble for saying that he would be happy to take on a new movie for the show…
