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
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…
John Barrowman has just about made the lives of his massive online fanbase and he’s shared a sexy shower selfie with his followers, after being besieged for the past few weeks. The former Doctor Who star caused a massive furore when he shared this very suggestively handsome photo on Twitter earlier this weekend and captioned it: “You asked for it, you got it. Here it is. A selfie in the shower, right now live people. Jb.” Yes John…we did. Thanks!
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.
Ever since the rebirth of Doctor Who, fans have been pondering over the prospect of a new movie – And now Russell T Davies has said he would like to make that happen. The former show runner of the hit BBC family sci-fi series has revealed that he would be very interested in penning a new feature length film in a bid to let the show take a “big leap!”
Autumn may seem like a long way away, especially if you are a Doctor Who fan, but news that filming for the ninth series of the hit BBC family sci-fi show may make it seem a bit closer. And, if news that production has started isn’t enough to excite you, details of the first guest stars of the series might!
National Television Awards 2015: Snubs for Peter Capaldi & Coronation Street in this years nominations!
The shortlist for this year’s National Television Awards nominations has been revealed, and there are quite a few surprises. The most notable snub seems to be for Peter Capaldi, the new Doctor Who, who has not been given the nod in the Best Drama Performance category, despite the show being up for Best Drama, and despite the tradition of each Time Lord being up for the Best Performance gong.
When it was first revealed that the twelfth Doctor in Doctor Who would be played by Scottish Thick Of It star Peter Capaldi, not many doubted this was a great decision on the part of the show’s bosses… And what made it even more appropriate was just how humbled Capaldi seemed to be at being appointed into the role, particularly as he has often been so full of praise for his predecessors Matt Smith and David Tennant.
Considering he uses some of the most sophisticated time travelling equipment known to man (and alien) in Doctor Who, Peter Capaldi has revealed that in real life he is a bit of a technophobe! The current Time Lord has admitted in a recent interview with Radio Times that he is so far behind modern technology that even his family steer clear of anything even slightly technical for gifts for him.
