Are the Master and the Doctor brothers?

The idea is interesting: they are friends, they are enemies (from time to time), they are both Time Lords. The following video is about the idea of the Master and the Doctor being brothers, to help celebrate The Master for #MonsterMonth of July 2016 with the Doctor Who team.

Doctor Who, series 9, episode 2 – The witch`s familiar

What about these women…?! One moment they try to kill each other, the other moment they are best friends and allies when they have to get out of troubles and to save the Doctor, and they betray each other first every time they can. I mean, of course, about the relation between Missy and Clara, something that starts to look a lot like the relation between the Doctor and Missy. With the obvious difference of personality: killer psychopath versus philantrophist.

You can’t praise the man either: the Doctor ran away from the child Davros instead of saving him, and when the old dying Davros is searching for him the Doctor continues to run until he has no choice. He gets to Skaro waiting for a trap, trapping Davros and the Daleks, and the relation between him and the maniacal creator of Daleks is the center of the story: two manipulators with a long relation between them are dueling for their lifes. It would not surprise me at all a new time war between the Time Lords and Dalek, but until them Julian Bleach explores a very different perspective of Davros, a move that initial stir some controversy. And Peter Capaldi feels great as the Doctor and he acts like that.

The continuation of the first episode from season 9, The Magician`s Apprentice, The witch`s familiar is fluid enough and has a very good script in order to keep you there all the time. You will get more than you have expected: more information about how Missy survived the end of the series 8, about how Daleks react (they channel their emotion instead blocking the as their friends Cybermen do) and how they treat their dead (the tubes for evacuating the residues are revolting to some point of this episode). Clara gets inside a Dalek tank (again!), a lot like she appeared in Doctor Who, but this time she is getting inside one of the shells and taken through the fellows of the dead Dalek.

For more details you have to watch the episode. It’s a good continuation of the first episode (but not extraordinay), directed by Hettie MacDonald and written by Steven Moffat. Cast: Julian Bleach (Davros), Nicholas Briggs (Dalek – voice), Peter Capaldi (The Doctor), Jenna Coleman (Clara Oswald), Barnaby Edwards (Dalek), Michelle Gomez (Missy), Jaye Griffiths (Jac), Clare Higgins (Ohila), Kelly Hunter (Shadow Architect), Nicholas Pegg (Dalek), Joey Price (Boy), Jemma Redgrave (Kate Lethbridge-Stewart), Jami Reid-Quarrell (Colony Sarff).

The next episode, Under the lake, will be broadcast 3th of October and it is the beginning of a 2 part story (Under the lake & Before the flood).

Steven Moffat interview for Digital Spy: second season Peter Capaldi is stunning

Doctor Who show runner Steven Moffat tells Digital Spy that Peter Capaldi has made The Doctor his own and is in “amazing form” in the upcoming series 9 of Doctor Who.

“He’s just on amazing form at the moment. I think there’s always a feeling when a new Doctor comes in, and it’s not necessarily a bad thing, you think ‘that’s Peter Capaldi as the Doctor’ or ‘that’s the Twelfth Doctor.’ Now he’s just the Doctor.”

And the interview continues with interesting stuff about the relation between the Doctor and the Master in the old series: they were best friends, but the Doctor’s best friend were a murdering psychopat. Right, isnt’t it?

The Doctor surprises fans at the Doctor Who Experience

David Tennant about Dr. Who at David Letterman

According to David Tennant: ”It’s a bit like being the President. You’re always the Doctor.” There are 12 Doctors, but there were a movie with the war Doctor, so they are… ”aproximately 12”. And, to be more confusing, David Tennant’s father-in-law is the fifth Doctor, so when they are together people calling for the Doctor people are a little confused.
