Doctor Who series 9: Everything we know so far

18 hours ago | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Last Updated: July 1, 2015

Doctor Who is the persistent subject of rumours - from the credible to the outright absurd - and it can be difficult to separate what's fact from what's fiction.

Lucky for you, dear reader, that Digital Spy is on hand to cut a swathe through the nonsense - these are the facts, 100% confirmed, about series 9 of the world's greatest science-fiction series.

Filming began on the 9th series of Doctor Who - its 35th run overall - on January 5, 2015 for a planned transmission in the autumn. Steven Moffat will serve as lead writer and executive producer for the fifth time.

Peter Capaldi will return for his second full series as the Doctor, while Jenna Coleman will be back for her third run of episodes as Clara Oswald.

Coleman was widely expected to be leaving the series in the 2014 Christmas special - and indeed had planned to exit - »

Sherlock Holmes: 10 offbeat takes on the Great Detective

29 June 2015 5:49 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From spoofs to point-and-click adventure games, here are 10 of the most memorable unusual incarnations of Sherlock Holmes...

We don’t know a great deal about the content of the 90-minute Sherlock special set to air later this year, but one thing has emerged from the set photos and tantalising titbits of information we’ve seen so far. Sherlock Holmes and John Watson will be in nineteenth-century garb, pitching them back into the setting of the legendary detective’s original adventures: 1895, to be precise. Why that happens is as yet unclear, but all will be revealed.

For those still craving their Holmes fix in the meantime, the new film Mr. Holmes offers us Ian McKellen’s take on the character, musing upon an old case as he looks back on his long career from the vantage point of retirement. Jonny Lee Miller’s ultra-modern, Us-based Sherlock will be entering his fourth »

Doctor Who: River Song teaming with Paul McGann for Big Finish

29 June 2015 12:45 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Alex Kingston’s River Song will join Paul McGann’s 8th Doctor for a new audio adventure with Big Finish. Also, Churchill is back...

Exciting news here – the rumoured return for River Song to Doctor Who has been confirmed, but not in the way you might expect. Alex Kingston’s character won’t be teaming up with Peter Capaldi on TV, but instead joining Paul McGann in the audio world of Big Finish.

River will join the eighth Doctor, as well as his companions Liv (Nicola Walker) and Helen (Hattie Morahan) for Doctor Who: Doom Coalition 2. Seeing as this Doctor hasn’t met River yet (David Tennant’s version, in Silence In The Library, was the first to meet her), River will have to help him without revealing too much about herself.

“The idea of River meeting previous Doctors was actually proposed by Steven Moffat,” producer David Richardson said. »

River Song, Winston Churchill and The Weeping Angels all returning to Doctor Who courtesy of Big Finish

27 June 2015 3:29 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Big Finish has just announced a major return of some of the great figures from the Lore of Doctor Who, those being River Song, Winston Churchill and the Weeping Angels!

Arriving in March 2016 is Doctor Who: Doom Coalition 2 and we’ll see Alex Kingston return as the time travelling archaeologist River Song.  She’ll be stepping into the era of the Eighth Doctor (Paul McGann) and his companions Liv Chenka (Nicola Walker) and Helen Sinclair (Hattie Morahan) as they fight to save the universe. The problem is however, how can River help her husband if – in this incarnation – she must never actually meet him?

“The idea of River meeting previous Doctors was actually proposed by Steven Moffat,” says producer David Richardson, “and it’s just irresistible isn’t it? Alex embraced the idea of returning to the role, and so she will be starring in no less than two box sets next year. »

Doctor Who: “one day” they will bring Captain Jack back, says John Barrowman

17 June 2015 12:45 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Mr John Barrowman is still holding out hope for a return to Doctor Who. It would be “very silly” not to, he claims…

Will Doctor Who showrunners, stars and fans ever stop discussing who will and will not be making a comeback? Probably not, and that’s an indicator of a very passionate fan-base.

Recently we had Steven Moffat discussing returns for Captain Jack and River Song. “Both River Song and Jack Harkness are massive characters in Doctor Who mythology. Their returns would have to be seismic,” he said. He also mentioned that such a turn of events is “never, ever closed off.”

Now, Mr John Barrowman has waded into the debate. Speaking to the Ipswich Star, he said that “the popularity of Captain Jack has not decreased around the world, it’s actually gotten stronger and we’re doing some audio plays that are coming out a little later this year. »

Game Of Thrones: where now for season 6?

15 June 2015 10:10 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Game Of Thrones season 5 [redacted for fear of spoilers], so where next for Game Of Thrones season 6?

Warning: contains spoilers for Game Of Thrones seasons one to five.

Game Of Thrones’ fifth season ended on a cliffhanger of such magnitude, major British newspapers and broadcasters were talking about it (and heaven help you if you wanted to wait until 9pm to watch it and were hoping to avoid spoilers). In a world in which water cooler television isn’t supposed to exist anymore, it might just be this generation’s ‘Who shot Jr?’, if the question hadn’t been ‘who?’ but ‘Is Jr dead and how might he rise again as a zombie?’ Just where can the show go from here? We have no idea, but we’re willing to make a few educated guesses.

The TV show has now officially caught up with the books and we’re all in the dark about where it goes next. »

Doctor Who: female lead was considered in 1986

14 June 2015 8:28 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

A fun fact for Whovians - Doctor Who creator Sydney Newman considered gender-swapping his iconic Time Lord way back in the 1980s...

Every time the Doctor reaches another regeneration, the discussion of potentially swapping the Time Lord's gender comes to the fore. As we learnt today, this debate has been going on longer than we knew. In fact, Doctor Who creator Sydney Newman considered the idea in October 1986.

He mentioned the possibility of a gender change in a letter to BBC One's controller of the time, Michael Grade. Newman wrote that "at a later stage, Dr Who would be metamorphosed into a woman." He added, though, that "this requires some considerable thought – mainly because I want to avoid a flashy Hollywood ‘Wonder Woman’ because this kind of hero(ine) has no flaws – and a character with no flaws is a bore."

This discussion took place during the Colin Baker era, »

8 June 2015 5:20 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Faye Marsay has said that she would love to return to Doctor Who.

The actress played dreaming girl Shona in 2014's seasonal special 'Last Christmas'.

Peter Capaldi and Steven Moffat to meet fans at Official Doctor Who Festival in London

"I would absolutely love to go back into Doctor Who because everyone on it, down to the person who cleans the trailer, is lovely," Marsay told the Radio Times at the Sky Arts South Bank Awards.

"It's a universally appealing show, and I had a great time on it. I just got to play myself basically, which was quite nice."

She added: "If they asked me to come back, I would do it in a heartbeat, but if they don't, I'm lucky to have done it in the first place.

"And Peter Capaldi I totally fancy. I would snog his face."
