Only a few weeks left until this year’s Doctor Who Christmas Special, and this is a sneak peek of Twice Upon A Time. Peter Capaldi is the current the Doctor, David Bradley is the First Doctor, Pearl Mackie is Bill Potts and Mark Gatiss is the Captain.
A fan-made trailer marking 50 Years since the Peter Cushing movies debuted on the big screen (‘Dr Who & The Daleks’ & ‘Daleks Invasion of Earth 2150AD’ back in 1955 – 1956) with the Daleks being in colour for the first time. The cinema style trailer is meant to celebrate this unique movies.
Yes, of course, it’s a teaser in the same style as the trailer for the next film ‘Rogue One: A Star Wars Story’ (released only a few days ago). This parody is focusing on the various actions of The 12 Doctor through Series 8 & 9.
This is what happens when someone is Doctor Who and Star Wars fan… a cross-over trailer that looks exciting and works perfectly! Almost 11 years ago (on March 26th 2005) the TARDIS has awaken and Rose Tyler crossed paths with the madman in the box and lots and lots of adventures. The Force also has awaken last December, not so good as I’ve noticed, but the Jedi adventure is still unfolding.
“At the heart of the battle, where the blood of the innocents flow, and only the monstrous survive…” This is new trailer from Only The Monstrous, the Big Finish audio drama that hopes to flesh out those years where the Doctor went to war, regenerating into great actor John Hurt.
There are three new battles for The War Doctor!
1.1 The Innocent
As the Daleks mass their time fleet for a final assault on Gallifrey, something ancient is waiting for them at Omega One. And a sacrifice must be made.
Arch-manipulator and Time Lord strategist, Cardinal Ollistra receives shock news of the Doctor’s death.
Meanwhile, on the planet Keska, a parochial war has returned to plague a peaceful civilisation after decades of tranquillity. But how can such a war have any connection with the great Time War which, at any one moment in the whole of eternity, could threaten to tear the universe apart?
If only the Doctor were still alive.
1.2 The Thousand Worlds
With the high-ranking Time Lord Seratrix behind enemy lines, the War Doctor finds himself assigned to a rescue mission. But any room for manoeuvre is severely restricted by an area of space known as the Null Zone.
Times have changed on Keska, and a countdown to destruction is beginning.
But who are the Taalyens and what is their part in the great and terrifying Dalek plan?
1.3 The Heart of the Battle
Trapped in a citadel swarming with Daleks, the Time Lord rescue force must find a way to overcome insurmountable odds. With the Daleks apparently planning to rule the Null Zone, perhaps their thirst for universal conquest and victory has been quenched…
The War Doctor doesn’t believe so — but how can he prove it without destroying any chance of peace?
As the countdown to the destruction of Keska proceeds, a deadly choice must be made… A choice that will define this Doctor, and perhaps forever cast him in the role of ‘monster’.

What do you think: does the general ideological interpretation of Doctor Who’s greatest monsters stand up to scrutiny? Are the historical parallels appropriate? This video looks at the various ways to interpret the show’s villains. And Daleks are the greatest.
About the Daleks: watch the ultimate trailer (1963 – 2015).
The start of series 9 (the first episode, The Magicians Apprentice, is tonight) is considered to be a great opportunity to put together a Ultimate Trailer looking back at the Daleks History in Doctor Who, right from the very beginning back in 1963 to there latest adventure ‘The Magicians Apprentice’/ ‘The Witches Familiar’!
Peter Capaldi, Jenna Coleman and Steven Moffat are telling you some things about what to expect in Series 9 of Doctor Who.
“The Magician’s Apprentice” is season 9’s very first episode, it will be out in 19th September and it has a trailer and a synopsis:
“Where is the Doctor?” When the skies of Earth are frozen by a mysterious alien force, Clara needs her friend. But where is the Doctor, and what is he hiding from? As past deeds come back to haunt him, old enemies will come face-to-face, and for the Doctor and Clara survival seems impossible…”
Synopsis: 2029 AD. In the desert of Arizona, billionaire philanthropist Dr Hugo Macht is trying to save the world from climate change. But his great project to “scrub the sky clean” with nanoatomic machines grinds to an unexpected halt when his diggers break into something unexpected: a Viking burial barrow containing eight corpses, a mysterious shield, an even more mysterious inscription… and a yet more mysterious traveller in time and space, known only as the Doctor.
And that’s not even the strangest part of Dr Macht’s day. Soon, it’ll begin to snow. Soon, the Doctor and his girl Friday, Mrs Constance Clarke, will come face-to-face with an ancient horror in the blizzard. A Frost Giant, in need of a new body. In need of flesh…
Written by Ian Edginton, directed by Louise Jameson. Cast: Colin Baker (The Doctor), Miranda Raison (Constance Clarke), Michael J Shannon (Dr Hugo Macht), Nell Mooney (Professor Lisa Zetterling), James Caroll Jordan (Major Vincent Da Costa/Herger), Ryan Forde (Bryce/Talessh).
New images, new information about the nest series of Doctor Who: here is the 30 seconds cutdown trailer for series 9 arriving on the 19th September! Don’t forget to join the Doctor (Peter Capaldi) and Clara Oswald (Jenna Coleman) for new exciting adventures!
This clip from Doctor Who’s series 8, episode 11, Dark Water only raise the most important question from this series until now: who is Missy? Many people tried to give an answer, I give mine only now: I think she’s Jenny, Doctor’s daughter. She is also a Time Lord, she regenerates and probably she can also change her face / body, becoming an entirely new person. The “boyfriend” thing is having fun about David Tennant relationship and then marriage with Georgia Elizabeth Tennant, the actress that played Jenny, Peter Moffett’s daughter. Peter Moffet was better known by his stage name, Peter Davison, the fifth Doctor.
The first number of The Twelfth Doctor Titan Comic will be releases just a few days from now. Whovian, get them! 🙂
Offering shocks, surprises, and galaxy-shaking revelations, seasoned TARDIS pilot Robbie Morrison (Drowntown, The Authority, 2000AD, Nikolai Dante) and New York Times-bestselling artist Dave Taylor (Batman: Death by Design; 2000AD) mark the start of their first five-issue run by diving headfirst into the console room and pulling all the levers they can – spinning the new Doctor off to his most challenging destination yet!
Freshly regenerated and with a new head full of unanswered questions, the Doctor (as played by Peter Capaldi) whisks Clara Oswald (as played by Jenna Coleman) away to a strange and distant world.
Clara thought she was in for an evening of marking essays on the Metaphysical Poets, followed by going out on a date – or at least trying to. You know, normal stuff.
Instead, she’s facing down exotic flora and fauna in her best dress, backing up the Doctor on a trek through traumatically alien undergrowth – and she doesn’t even know what the Doctor is searching for, or what will try to kill them should they find it!
New Face! New Doctor! New Beginning! Get in on the ground floor of this amazing ongoing series!
