To celebrate the TARDIS touching down in Sydney, Australia, ABC and BBC Worldwide ran a unique competition to gave fans the chance to win tickets to the Australian fan event. They have already showed their love, so it wasn’t too hard: to do this they asked the fans to show how they #hearthearttheDoctor through video, art, photography, writing or however else they best felt expressed their feelings. The team was not disappointed… the result is the next video.
The winning entry was Edward Felix, but Crispy Pro impressed the UK Doctor Who team so much that we asked him to come along to the event to do some guest You Tubing.
This is for the Australian fans, by Australian fans – thanks for your enthusiastic love and support for the show.
The Doctor ventures into the cube-based universe that is Minecraft. What wonders will he encounter? What dangers? Follow the Time Lord through space, time and graphics from 1978 to find out. And, of course, enjoy!
The greatest number lover’s convention is coming to Sesame Street this year! It’s the upcoming Numeric Con episode… a brilliant parody of Comic Con (with an educational twist, of course) that features Sesame Street characters like Elmo dressed up as comic book and sci-fi heroes like Princess Leia and Batman (‘The Dark Nine’).
Tom Baker’s Doctor will be there also, the Tardis and some suspiciously Dalek-shaped creatures screeching “Enumerate”. Also Wolverine (‘Fiverine’) from the X-Men, Comic Book Guy from The Simpsons and a perfect impression of William Shatner as Captain Kirk.
This fan-made video with BBC clips from the first 7 years of the New Who features Christopher Eccleston, David Tennant and Matt Smith as the Doctor and also Billie Piper (Rose Tyler), Freema Agyeman (Martha Jones), Catherine Tate (Donna Noble), Karen Gillan (Amy Pond-Williams), Arthur Darvill (Rory Williams), Alex Kingston (River Song / Melody Pond) and Jenna-Louise Coleman (Clara Oswald).
There are interesting times ahead for the new Doctor. It’s time you knew him… And, more, what’s interesting than a teaser trailer for series 8: BBC Wales announces a Cardiff premiere next month, August 7, before the first episode arriving on TV, allowing fans to see Peter Capaldi’s debut alongside the new Doctor, Jenna Coleman and Steven Moffat.
The lunchtime event will be held at St David’s Hall in the city and will kickstart the drama’s publicity world tour with tickets available to the public from St David’s Hall Box Office from Monday July 7. It means the very next week… The event is held in association with BFI Sci-Fi: Days of Fear and Wonder, and the full programme for which will be announced later this month. Tickets will be available to the public from 10am on 7 July from St David’s Hall Box Office on 029 2087 8444 or online at stdavidshallcardiff.co.uk,
Let me remind you that Deep Breath, the feature-length premiere episode of the eighth series, will air on BBC1 on Saturday August 23.
At this year’s Collectormania event, Flicks And The City caught up with actor Paul McGann again to talk all things Doctor Who. He has said that even though he is still willing to reprise his role as the Eighth Doctor, he thinks that it’s unlikely it’ll ever happen.
The actor talks about returning as the eighth Doctor in The Night Of The Doctor, the spin-off shows, the return of the Five(ish) Doctors, Peter Capaldi’s Twelfth Doctor, and why Tilda Swinton would have been a brilliant Doctor.
Paul McGann also says why he thinks The Five(ish) Doctors Reboot was the highlight of the Doctor Who 50th Anniversary celebrations.
and why he’d like to do a Five(ish) Doctors sequel, what Peter Capaldi will bring to the role of the Twelfth Doctor and why he could be the best Doctor yet, why Tilda Swinton would have been a brilliant Doctor, and whether he’d like to see his own Doctor on screen with Peter Capaldi’s new Doctor.
I hope you remember Christopher Eccleston’s first scene as The Doctor and you enjoy it as it deserve: Rose Tyler meets a mysterious stranger called the Doctor. She is faced with a choice: return to her normal life or join him on an extraordinary journey.
Steven Moffat considers that ‘We will always need a hero like the Doctor‘. He tries to imagine a world without Doctor Who, and sets out his vision of the hero that is the Doctor. Filmed at the Doctor Who Celebration, on November 24.
Orbiting a quiet backwater planet, the massed forces of the universe’s deadliest species gather, drawn to a mysterious message that echoes out to the stars – and amongst them, the Doctor. Rescuing Clara from a family Christmas dinner, the Time Lord and his best friend must learn what this enigmatic signal means for his own fate and that of the universe.
“And now it’s time for one last bow like all your other selves. Eleven’s hour is over now, the clock is striking Twelve’s…”
“If you want my life, come and get it!” shouts the Time Lord as the siege of Trenzalore begins. And then we hear those four words, delivered by a Dalek: “The Doctor is regenerating!”
Could that be a slight note of panic in its voice…?
Do you remember? Christopher Eccleston had just regenerated into David Tennant… and after smelling the tea and waking up, the Doctor reintroduces himself to everyone. But who is he? Is he Ginger? Is he funny? Sarcastic? Sexy? Right handed? Left handed? A gambler? A Fighter? A coward? A traitor? A liar? A nervous wreck? Toying with both friends and foe about his identity, he shuts down the Sycorax blood control of mankind, then challenges the Sycorax leader.
Soon, just few weeks from now, we will get through something like this all over again…
Yes, yesterday was indeed the day of the Doctor. It was the 50th anniversary from the broadcast of the first episode, thing that happened almost unnoticed because of John Fitzgerald Kennedy’s assasination one day before. But a hard start did not stoped the people from the BBC to produce episode after episode, and now, 5 decades later, to produce n episode about the first 3 years of the show and the first Doctor, William Hartnell. An adventure in time and space was broadcast Friday, 22th of November, and it can be describe in one single word: memorable. The British work made the idea to endure and to become a world wide phenomenon.
Last night BBC and some cinemas around the world broadcast the special episode the Day of the Doctor, an episode well done. The history from the Doctor Who Universe says that once there were a temporal war between the Time Lords and a race called the Daleks that burned everything in its way in the universe. The war ended in the moment the Doctor eliminated both rases along with his home planet, Gallifrey, into an attempt to save the rest of the Universe. To do that he stole a weapon called the Moment, something so powerful its operating system became sentient, and the Time Lords could not used it even in the last moments of the war, when the odd were against them. Who could use a weapon of mass destruction that could became his/her judge of the war crimes?
That moment was probably the worst moment in Doctor’s life, so bad that he overlooked or even forgot some things. The John Hurt’s incarnation was considered that Time Lord that betrayed the name of the Doctor.
The day of the Doctor returns to that moment in time and space, bringing along several incarnation of the Time Lord: John Hurt, David Tennant (the Tenth Doctor), Matt Smith (the Eleventh Doctor). 3 Doctors working together, 3 times greater nightmare to their enemies, including the Daleks. The current companion, Jenna Coleman (Clara) and Billie Piper (known as Rose Tyler or Bad Wolf) are also present. But Tom Baker too, the Forth Doctor, at the end of the episode.
I am not telling you the details of the great story written by Steven Moffat, it has too many turns (more or less unexpected) in the action. If I am starting to write the good or the best stuff that appeared in the episode I will only take you the pleasure and the surprise of watching the show. All I can tell you is that the Zygons, shape-shifting creatures that return in this episode of Doctor Who, provide an important item that help saving the planet Gallifrey and its natives from destruction. So that the Doctor will be able to return home some time in the future.
A crashing spaceship, a desperate pilot and an ancient world all lead the Doctor towards a terrible choice in this 50th anniversary mini episode… The eighth Doctor, Paul McGannm seen only once before in 1996 outing Doctor Who: The Movie, stars in the mysterious mini-episode The Night of the Doctor.
The short film starts with McGann’s Doctor hurtling through space in a doomed ship accompanied by a woman called Cass.
The Bringer of Darkness, the Oncoming Storm, the Doctor, the Warrior – A Time Lord! The 50th Anniversary features Matt Smith, David Tennant and a mysterious incarnation played by John Hurt. Only one appears in the mini episode, The Night of the Doctor. But which one?
As you may already know from the trailer, Brian Cox takes a trip with the Doctor and challenges the science of the TARDIS.
For one night only, Professor Brian Cox takes an audience of celebrity guests, including Charles Dance and Rufus Hound, and members of the public on a journey into the wonderful universe of the Doctor, from the lecture hall of the Royal Institution of Great Britain. Drawing on the latest theories as well as 200 years of scientific discoveries and the genius of Einstein, Brian tries to answer the classic questions raised by the Doctor – can you really travel in time? Does extra-terrestrial life exist in our galaxy? And how do you build something as fantastical as the TARDIS?

I’ve just found out about a petition created by fan club NY Sci Fi & Fantasy on Change.org to help mark the 50th anniversary stateside. It’s called Petition to light up the Empire State Building TARDIS blue on November 23rd to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who! and it wants to bring NYC to The Doctor to celebrate.
It’s the first time a science fiction show lasted 50 years, that’ a landmark occasion. The Doctor has visited New York City many times over the years and the fun club wants to celebrate this. They are attempting to partner with the Empire State Building (www.esbnyc.com) to light it Tardis blue for the Doctor Who 50th anniversary.
Their petition has so far collected more than 15,300 signatures from across the world. Their target is 25,000 names.
Are you interested to participate?
Let’s light up the ESB TARDIS blue on November 23rd to celebrate 50 years of Doctor Who!
