Of course one of the charms of the hit BBC family sci-fi series is that over the 50 odd years that it has been gracing our screens, we are often reintroduced to characters from adventures past.

As we have previously reported, Ingrid Oliver is set to return to Doctor Who in the next series to reprise her role as Osgood, despite being apparently killed off in series eight!

With the filming date for the fourth series of Sherlock now confirmed, we thought that we would recap what we know so far, and explore the possibilities of what may be ahead… Almost as soon as the third series of the hit BBC detective series came to an end in January last year, we were eager for a release date for the fourth outing of our favourite drama, which stars Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman as the iconic London crime-solving duo, Sherlock and Watson. The series was broug

Fans of Outlander, or Doctor Who for that matter, may not know this but the reason that the first Outlander novels were set in 18th Century Scotland was all down to a Doctor Who character that the author had found appealing. The character in question is Jamie MacCrimmon, played by Frazer Hines, who was the companion to the Second Doctor, Patrick Troughton, for over 116 episodes of the hit BBC family sci-fi series, making him the longest-serving companion in the show’s history. Diana Gabald

Doctor Who may have been around for over half a century, but just how long has it got left? Well, according to showrunner Steven Moffat, at least five years, but it would seem that one of the show’s former Time Lord actors, Peter Davison, believes the hot BBC family sci-fi series could continue indefinitely! The actor – whose daughter is, incidentally, married to fellow former Doctor Who actor David Tennant – reckons that all the show needs to remain a household name, and secur

Doctor Who
We were all a tad excited when it was announced that Game of Thrones star, Maisie Williams, would be popping over to Doctor Who in a guest role capacity this new series, and intrigued as the young actress was being incredibly secretive about what sort of character she would be playing.

We didn’t think it was possible for Missy to surprise us any more in Doctor Who, but it would seem that she isn’t done with doling out shockers quite yet… Fans of the hit BBC family sci-fi series will remember that Missy, who’s played by Michelle Gomez, was last seen being defeated by a zapping Cyberman during the series 8 finale, Death in Heaven, shortly after it was revealed that Missy was in fact the female reincarnation of The Doctor’s biggest arch nemesis, The

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

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,

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.

doctor_who_logo
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
