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-

Doctor Who will run for at LEAST another 5 years says Steven Moffat!

Doctor-Who
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

Doctor Who: Steven Moffat rules out a movie! Here’s why…

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

Sherlock / Doctor Who crossover? Steven Moffat may consider it…. & Doctor Who renewed for 5 years!

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

Happy Birthday Doctor Who: Stars send messages & why did Peter Capaldi have goosebumps?

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

Doctor Who Spoilers: Series 9 will see a new Doctor, promises Steven Moffat!

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!

Doctor Who Spoilers: Richard Madden wants a guest role… just not with GF Jenna Coleman!

Former Corrie star Julie Hesmondhalgh for Doctor Who? Or Sherlock?

Julie Hesmondhalgh
It is hard to believe that it has already been a year since we last saw Julie Hesmondhalgh on our Coronation Street screens, but maybe we could be about to see a lot more of her. Fans of the hit ITV soap will know that Julie played Hayley Cropper, the much loved knicker-stitcher and devoted wife of cafe owner Roy, up until January last year when a terminal cancer diagnosis resulted in her making the brave decision to end her own life.
