‘Doctor Who’: Peter Capaldi Teases ‘More Alien’ Doctor in Season 8

6 hours ago | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

The full-length trailer for the new Doctor Who‘s upcoming eighth season makes one thing crystal-clear: the new Doctor (played by Peter Capaldi) isn’t just physically older than his last three regenerations, he’s also more akin to a seasoned warrior in search of redemption – as opposed to his more boyish predecessors, especially Matt Smith as the most recent Doctor. However, as Smith’s former costar Jenna Coleman – whose character, Clara Oswald, is now traveling with Capaldi’s Time Lord – that change has consequences of its own, for the characters in the Who universe.

Steven Moffat, who is still serving as Doctor Who‘s head writer and show-runner (after three seasons in the position), has promised to mix things up drastically in season eight. One look around the Doctor Who fan community online and you may notice that a number of Whovians seem to share Moffat’s concern ...

Peter Capaldi on "more alien... less human-friendly" Doctor

12 hours ago | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Empire Magazine has a snazzy interview with Doctor Who's Peter Capaldi, Jenna Coleman and Steven Moffat in this month's edition...

As August creeps into view and Capalday (Tm Blogtor Who) makes its approach, the Doctor Who press machine is beginning to rumble. Over the weekend, The Sunday Times ran a beefy interview with Peter Capaldi about his newest, biggest role yet, and now Empire Magazine's latest issue is following suit.

Speaking of suits, the interview boasts a posh portrait of the new Doctor in costume, as well as Who insights from Steven Moffat, Jenna Coleman, Peter Jackson, and Capaldi.

"He's more alien than he's been for a while," Capaldi told Empire of his Doctor, "He doesn't quite understand human beings or really care very much about their approval." Jenna Coleman added, "This guy is a lot less human-friendly and a lot less patient. He's more removed and inaccessible [than Matt Smith's Doctor]."

Joe Cornish Wanted to Direct 'King Kong: Skull Island'

23 hours ago | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Joe Cornish hasn't directed anything since Attack the Block, though he did co-write Steven Spielberg's The Adventures of Tintin with Edgar Wright and Steven Moffat and then went on to work with Wright on Ant-Man until the two stepped away from the project. He is said to be attached to Universal's Section 6, a film about the formation of MI6, but now another movie at Universal has caught his eye, the revealed King Kong: Skull Island movie Legendary has already dated for November 4, 2016. Deadline has the news saying Legendary has offered Cornish the gig, but no indication yet as to whether he'll take it, but the site does reveal Max Borenstein, who wrote the recent Godzilla remake, will pen the script. When the project was announced by Legendary they said previous King Kong films have touched on Skull Island but this new film will stay and explore the »

Karen Gillan on Guardians of the Galaxy, Selfies, and Putting Men in Headlocks

28 July 2014 11:15 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Scottish actress Karen Gillan is best known for playing leggy, headstrong Doctor Who companion Amy Pond. That could all change very soon. On Friday, she debuts in Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy as the bald, blue assassin Nebula, and this fall, she’ll play a modern-day Eliza Doolittle in the ABC rom-com Selfie. The delightful Gillan was promoting the latter at the Television Critics Association summer press tour this month, so Vulture used it as an opportunity to get her thoughts about her supervillain turn and how studying superficial women at SoulCycle factored into her work on Selfie. But, of course, any conversation with a former companion must begin with Doctor Who.How did you feel about the fate of Amy and Rory?[Doctor Who boss] Steven Moffat didn’t give us any warning about what would happen. He just sent us the script. Arthur Darvill [who plays Rory] read it immediately, but I refused »

Doctor Who Showrunner Confirms Discussions with Peter Jackson

26 July 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Doctor Who showrunner Steven Moffat has confirmed that he's had discussions with director Peter Jackson about helming an episode of the epic sci-fi series. Jackson has expressed interest in directing an episode, and Moffat likes the idea of having him come in to direct one, so it's good to see the the two parties are communicating with each other! 

In an interview with SFX, Moffat confirmed the possibility that Jackson could end up directing an episode.

“I think it will happen at some point. He’s still incredibly busy on The Hobbit. I’ve spoken to him face to face, and he would like to do one. I mean, he can do what the hell he likes – he owns New Zealand!”

Moffat then said that the director had accepted that there was “no money” in it and explained,

“He’s a nice guy, he quite often drops me a line after a show goes out. »

"Doctor Who" Gets Cinema Run & Peter Jackson?

25 July 2014 6:14 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

"Kill List" and "Sightseers" director Ben Wheatley's feature-length episode of "Doctor Who" is getting a worldwide theatrical run that will follow the same formula they used with last year's 50th anniversary episode.

The BBC has announced that the upcoming "Deep Breath," the 75-minute season premiere that introduces Peter Capaldi's new take on The Doctor, will score a worldwide day-and-date theatrical release on the same day as its TV premiere - August 23rd.

The episode sees the still recovering Doctor and Clara arriving in Victorian London where they seek refuge with Madame Vastra, Jenny Flint and Strax. As Clara deals with the fact The Doctor may not be the man she knew any longer, a dinosaur loose on the streets of London hints at a dark secret that lies beneath the city. Something has been slowly rebuilding itself, something not human, and the only way to escape its clutches »

Steven Moffat says Peter Jackson could direct 'Doctor Who'

25 July 2014 10:22 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Not all science fiction news coming our way this week can be traced back to San Diego and Comic-Con, even if the news sounds perfect for that venue.  For instance, in a recent interview with SFX, Steven Moffat discussed the possibility that "Lord of the Rings" director Peter Jackson may one day direct an episode of "Doctor Who."  The long-running sci-fi series, which will return with new episodes—and a new Doctor—on August 23rd, has had a number of well known directors and writers in the past (recent names include Neil Gaiman and Richard Curtis).  Due to the time travelling nature of the show, there are multiple genres which it employs, that in turn lends itself to a broad array of directors. Speaking specifically of Jackson, "Doctor Who" executive producer Moffat states that Jackson's work on "The Hobbit" is currently stopping him from doing a "Who" episode but that, »

Steven Moffat: Sherlock would be over if it was longer

25 July 2014 9:15 AM, PDT | Virgin Media - TV | See recent Virgin Media - TV news »

Steven Moffat thinks 'Sherlock' ''would be over by now'' if he made more episodes. The show's executive producer has hit back at a recent BBC Trust report, which argued it would be of great benefit to BBC One to air 12 episodes of the hit detective drama, insisting the show's leading men Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman would have quit if it was any longer than three episodes per series. Speaking at the European premiere of 'Guardians of the Galaxy' in London's Leicester Square last night (24.07.14), Steven exclusively told Bang Showbiz: ''BBC should be more innovative and make more of 'Sherlock'? »

London – The prospect of Peter Jackson directing an episode of Doctor Who is looking more promising, according to the BBC sci-fi series’ executive producer Steven Moffat.

Having long been a fan of the show, director Peter Jackson has previously mentioned an interest in directing an episode of Doctor Who, only for his incredibly busy schedule to get in the way. However, that schedule might be about to open up a little once work is completed on The Hobbit, and according to Steven Moffat, the director’s interest is real. “I’ve spoken to him face to face, and he would like to do one,” says Moffat. “He accepts that there’s no money and that there’s no time, and it would have to be when he’s available – and...

Peter Jackson Could Work Doctor Who Episode into His Schedule after The Hobbit Trilogy

24 July 2014 6:57 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

While Peter Jackson has a bit more to do this year to finish up his Hobbit trilogy with The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, he might be taking a trip to the small screen in the near future.  Which TV show, you ask? Well, Jackson has expressed an interest in directing an episode of Doctor Who.  Jackson would have done the show already if it weren't for his insane schedule over the last few years.  Perhaps things would go a little easier if the Good Doctor took a trip to New Zealand where Jackson spends much of his time.  I jest, but according to Steven Moffat, that's not exactly out of the question.  Hit the jump for more. Here's what Moffat had to say about his talks with Jackson in an interview with SFX (via The One Ring): “He’s still incredibly busy on The Hobbit. I »
