On March 26th 2005, almost 10 year ago and after a break of 9 years, The Doctor returned. His first word was “run” and he has done it for the last decade. This fan-made “trailer” was created by David from the VG934 YouTube channel and it is a celebration of those 10 years, 8 great series and a few incarnations of the Doctor. Only a Time Lord would celebrate the 10 years anniversary after the 50th anniversary.

To celebrate 10 years, the first decade, of New Doctor Who this week the people managing the Doctor Who Youtube channel are travelling back in time with some special videos and even some brand new artwork.
The first stop is July 2004, the day when Christopher Eccleston and Billie Piper were recording their first big dialogue scene in Central London. The scene was taken from Doctor Who Confidential Series 1.

Is Time Travel really possible? In the following clip, part of The science of Doctor Who series, the professor Brian Cox – a confirmed Doctor Who fan – undertakes an experiment with a light showing that time moves faster for a stationary clock than a moving clock, which appears to move more slowly over the same length of time. His conclusion is that time travel is possible, but only into the future!
We only need a TARDIS to show how wrong he is.

From the same Time Lords that brought you Hey Missy, Legs Nose Robinson presents something new, something else entirely: their latest single, perhaps the first ever true [TARDIS] blue Trock anthem, Listen, is like nothing Doctor Who fans have ever heard before. Inspired by the episode with the same name, “Listen” has three times the length of the Hey Missy and absolutely none of the comforting familiarity of their first one-hit-wonder. But Legs Nose Robinson is sure that this song will leave Whovians everywhere saying, “Wait, that was just too many ‘feels.’” and, “But I wasn’t ready to say goodbye to Clara”…oh yeah, they totally kind of imply going there.
When no one is there
Felt the presence
And the chill
But no one’s standing near you
Because the hand that is felt
Is never seen
Afraid to look
And afraid to scream
It’s with you always
It’s in your dreams
Always just beneath
It doesn’t matter what’s really there
You’re never alone no not anywhere
We’re all afraid of the dark
No matter, what age
We’re all still kids at heart
Fear takes, and fear makes
Companions of us all
Listen to it all
Oh what’s that sound
And what does it sound like
When no one’s around
What’s by your side
And what’s the thing
That keeps you up at night
Hey, hey (Maybe just maybe)
What is that sound (We’re never alone)
And what does it sound like (Never alone)
When no one’s around (Not anywhere)
Hey, oh (Maybe just maybe)
What’s by your side (We’re never alone)
And what’s the thing (Never alone)
That keeps you up at night (Not anywhere)
You’ll always wonder what’s underneath
Can you listen long enough to see
(Chorus x 2)
Fear can take you
And fear can break you
But fear can make you
Into what you are listen
It’s alright to
Be afraid and
Yourself what you are
Time ticks time tocks time turns time locks
Time flows time flies time flees time lies
Sometimes time moves and it it
Changes what you are
So Lay back down and

The Vimeo user Nereusmedia thought about how Doctor Who would have been like if it was made in the earliest eras of movies and filmed entertainment: he has made two clips showing the Season Nine credit sequence as it might have looked if it was made sometimes in the past.
First there was this series zero 1936 to 1957 version, with eccentric clockwork and a slightly out-of-breath version of the theme tune: let’s watch Doctor Who Series 9 alternative opening title sequence from an alternate universe. This video is meant to have the feel of TV from that era and it was inspired by features of the Series 8 title sequence, with the gears and some of the implied motion styles.
Then Doctor Who credits as if from 1899, complete with piano accompaniment, has come though on the same channel: the user has imagined that Doctor Who first aired as a silent movie in 1899. Not without problems: the Police Telephone Boxes were called Police Signal Boxes at the time, and that period of time was the dawn of film so special effects were very simple and bizarre. The user chose a pinwheel as the symbol of time travel, with an 1890’s Glasgow Police Signal Box as the TARDIS, complete with sparks and black smoke spewing out the bottom. When the TARDIS does materialize in London its in a puff of smoke, in a nod to the early silent films that had lots of this kind of magic effect. The audio piano track was sped up a bit, to give it that 78 rpm feel from the time, along with a bundle of make it old like effects. Seems to have a bit of steampunk to it as well. Just a bit of fun.

The Youtube user John Smith has always been fascinated by restorations of old movies, so I thought I’d finally give it a go. This is his attempt at restoring, in full 16:9 High Definition Colour, one of the most famous speeches in Doctor Who history.
Done with After Effects, Photoshop and Premiere. Music: Goodbye Susan – An Adventure in Space and Time.

Packed with exclusive photos and interviews, Doctor Who Magazine issue#484 is on sale tomorrow, Thursday 5 March 2015, priced £4.99. In this issue the comic strip continues; showrunner Steven Moffat answers more readers’ questions talking a little about the direction the Twelfth Doctor will be heading in Series 9, The Fact of Fiction puts another story under the microscope, all the latest merchandise is previewed and reviewed; plus in-depth interviews and features, news, prize-winning competitions and much, much more.
In the interview Steven Moffat states: “We’re not bringing him back exactly the same as we left him, at all. I think that was already evident at Christmas. He’s left some of the burden of being the superhero of the universe behind. Also, Peter magnifies anything that is dark. So I’m pushing him – I’m writing quite funny this year – I’m pushing him the other way.
He’s also got a Scottish gloom about him. If you gave him a Matt Smith script, it would come out very, very differently. I think it was great fun to do for a year. But no, that’s not how we’re going to play the rest of him.”

Did you know that Doctor Who was broadcast in space from the very first episode, in November 1963? That signal is now 51 light years and some months away because the radio waves are traveling with the speed of light. Is heat the key to finding extra-terrestrial life? And more importantly are their aliens out there somewhere watching An Unearthly Child? Brian Cox investigates in the video below.

Since the TARDIS’ dematerialisation effect has remained largely unchanged for the past 50 years, John Smith thought it might be interesting to try out a new approach. So this is his attempt at capturing what travelling through time and space might look like from the point of view of the TARDIS – from take-off to landing, all in one shot.
He’s done a startlingly good job, right?

What if Doctor Who series was called Missy Who and happening in some alternate Universe, parallel with the one we are living in? Did you ever wondered what it would be like if the series was about the Master and instead was called Missy Who?! This is WhovianDoctor11‘s interpretation of the title sequence (inspired by 1980s Doctor Who) but with a twist.

David Tennant, the former Doctor, adds amazing comedy lyrics to the haunting Broadchurch TV show theme song. The Tenth Doctor spent the morning co-hosting the Absolute Radio Breakfast Show with his mate Christian O’Connell.
It was nothing like Doctor Who, so that’s nice…
It stars me and Arthur Darvill – who played Rory – but it’s nothing like Doctor Who…
And nobody’s noticed Gwen from Torchwood, because it isn’t Doctor Who…
Or that young journalist, who was also once in Doctor Who… as was the psychotherapist – and Olivia Colman… but like I say, it’s nothing like Doctor Who…
