More Reasons To Thank Steven Moffat!

13 hours ago | | See recent Kasterborous news »

Philip Bates is a writer at Kasterborous Doctor Who News and Reviews - All the latest Doctor Who news and reviews with our weekly podKast, features and interviews, and a long-running forum.

Whoa, whoa, whoa! This isn’t how the internet works! Praising someone or something? Get outta town! But, as you may recall, we ran a little feature a while ago focusing on what Whovians owe Steven Moffat for. We included making Big Finish as canon as it gets, great storytelling, and casting Matt Smith as the Doctor. Turns...

Neil Gaiman: 'I'm too busy to write for Doctor Who series 9'

17 December 2014 11:06 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Neil Gaiman has said that he will likely not write for Doctor Who series nine because of his busy schedule.

Gaiman previously wrote a pair of episodes, 'The Doctor's Wife' and 'Nightmare in Silver', for the 11th Doctor (Matt Smith).

Neil Gaiman wants Tom Hiddleston for The Sandman

The writer recently explained that he is currently too busy to make the "enormous time commitment" necessary to write for Doctor Who.

"I'm not writing for series nine right now, just because of ridiculous work commitments I'm trying to get out from under," Gaiman told the Radio Times. "I am determined to write for Peter Capaldi.

"As long as Peter is Doctor Who, I will write for him. And every time I'm in the UK, I go and see the Doctor Who people. I go see [producer] Brian Minchin and Steven Moffat, and none of us are going to let me go off the boil. »

17 December 2014 1:00 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

2014 was a strong year for television, both at home and abroad, but now is the time to narrow down our favourites to only the choicest cuts.

Our countdown of the best TV shows of 2014 continues today with 15-11 - check back tomorrow (December 18) when we'll have numbers 10-6.

15. Mad Men

Season 7, Part 1 of Mad Men should have been incredibly frustrating. Inspired by Breaking Bad, the show decided to have it final run split into two parts over two years and it originally sounded like an excuse to eke out the Don Draper franchise for another 12 months. We couldn't have been more wrong.

Doctor Who complete reviews: In the Forest of the Night

14 December 2014 12:29 PM, PST | Shadowlocked | See recent Shadowlocked news »

Shadowlocked apologises for the delays in John B's output on Buffy, Angel and Doctor Who. As ever, the efficient Mr Bensalhia is miles ahead of deadline, but circumstances beyond our control have delayed the return of Buffy and Angel reviews (imminent) - and also this, the first of John's closing reviews for season 8.

In Doctor Who's philosophy corner, you can dig up some choice wise words even in the most derided of stories. Take The Horns Of Nimon. On the face of it, a panto caper with an eye-rolling beardy fruitcake and men in bull masks. If you delve deep enough though, then there's many a lesson to be learned. Don't be gullible for the sake of greed like Soldeed. Don't lie like the blustering co-pilot if you want to avoid the humiliation of ripped trousers. And like The Doctor learns the hard way, never ever say “What could »

Doctor Who: 9 Reasons Peter Capaldi Could Be The Best Doctor Ever

13 December 2014 12:28 PM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »


A lofty statement, but bare with it. Firstly, this article was inspired by the recent article ranking each iteration of the Doctor from day one to the present day. The debate raised by this article about just who was the greatest Doctor of all time between fans was spectacular – but in such lists, the outcome is always somewhat predictable. David Tennant – one of the new era Doctors, and arguably its most iconic – always tends to come out on top. No surprises there, then.

It’s a testament to Tennant’s brilliantly realised portrayal of the Time Lord that he has managed to become widely regarded as the fan favourite of all time, but of course there were many Doctors before him who usually find themselves being unfortunately overlooked by the millions of fans who joined the show when it returned to screens in 2005. Most Classic Series fans have accepted Christopher Eccleston, »

10 Things Steven Moffat Has Given The Doctor Who Fandom

12 December 2014 5:24 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »


Is there anybody connected to the Whoniverse quite as polarizing as Steven Moffat? As Doctor Who’s showrunner since Matt Smith took control of the Tardis, he has been called many things. Genius and brilliant, sure. Yet the BAFTA and Emmy award winning writer has also been called lazy, sexist, and, well… pretty much everything else in between.

In fact, barely a comment section in Doctor Who’s corner of the internet can be found without at least one fan calling for his head, while other less violent souls spend their time pleading for him to step down instead. Yet, whist being under Moffat’s controversial reign, Doctor Who has grown into the international phenomenon it is today. Is the series’ availability on streaming sites around the world to thank for this? Partially, for sure. But that doesn’t entirely explain the legions of Whovians and Wholigans around the »

TV Trailers: "Doctor Who," "Broadchurch"

11 December 2014 10:44 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

In the race to nab viewer eyeballs over the holidays in the United Kingdom, new promo trailers have been released for two of the biggest pieces of event TV scheduled for the season.

First up, The BBC have unveiled the trailer for this year's "Doctor Who" Christmas special and it's a decidedly darker looking and less fable-style affair than those of the Matt Smith-era, even with Nick Frost as Santa Claus.

Meanwhile, ITV has released a new trailer for the second season of "Broadchurch" which returns January 5th. The clip covers much of the cast from the new players (Charlotte Rampling, Eve Myles, Marianne Jean-Baptiste), returning supporting players (Jodie Whittaker, Jonathan Bailey, Arthur Darvill). and of course David Tennant and Olivia Colman's lead characters.

Steven Moffat on Doctor Who new series: "We can stop shocking the audience"

9 December 2014 4:01 PM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Steven Moffat has spoken about his plans for the future of Doctor Who.

The BBC sci-fi drama's showrunner said that now Peter Capaldi has established himself in the role of The Doctor, the show "can stop shocking the audience with Capaldi moments".

Speaking to SFX, Moffat said: "I was looking for the Capaldi moments every episode, saying 'We need a Capaldi moment, that moment where he's not Matt Smith, he's not David Tennant, where he's a dangerous, unpredictable, volatile character'."

He continued: "Because that slaps the audience awake, in a way. The longer you do a show the cosier it gets, the cosier it gets the nearer to death it gets. You really have to say to people 'Pay attention. He's far more unpredictable than that'.

"So now, having done that, and having blasted our new Doctor at them, we can go other places with him. We don't have to »

Doctor Who: Ranking The Christmas Specials From Worst To Best

5 December 2014 2:16 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »


Two of the most wholesome, enjoyable and generally wonderful things in the world join forces every year, come December: Doctor Who and Christmas. Yes, once again, ‘tis the season for holiday cheer, indulgent sentimentality, and everyone’s fair share of aliens, robots, and – of course –  alien robots.

In high anticipation for the, thus-far excellent, Peter Capaldi’s Christmas debut, here is another retrospective on New Who’s Christmas specials: festive extra episodes that, for better or for worse, have become as much a hallmark of the holiday season as tinsel, trees, and turkey for Whovians everywhere over the course of these past nine years.

While frequently skirting the twin realms of camp and cheese, the hour-long specials each have a little something to them – be it a dramatic alien invasion with Grinch-like bad timing or Christmassy ethereality closer to magic than sci-fi – that make them the perfect thing to »

The film brings back Arnold Schwarzenegger in his star-making role and includes a host of new faces like Emilia Clarke (Game of Thrones) as Sarah Connor, Jason Clarke (Dawn of the Planet of the Apes) as John Connor , Jai Courtney (Divergent) as Kyle Reese, and Matt Smith (Doctor Who) in an undisclosed role.

The official synopsis is “The year is 2029. John Connor, leader of the resistance continues the war against the machines. At the Los Angeles offensive, John’s fears of the unknown future begin to emerge when Tecom spies reveal a new plot by SkyNet that will attack him from both fronts; past and future, and will ultimately change warfare forever.”

Earlier today, Paramount Pictures released the highly-anticipated first trailer for Terminator Genisys, which already has fans buzzing about this revamped story that alters the Terminator franchise timeline.

While Terminator Genisys may in fact restore this beloved franchise to its former glory, the first footage leaves fans with more questions than answers.

Thankfully, Arnold Schwarzenegger himself has taken to his official Facebook page to answer questions from fans about the trailer.

The Terminator franchise has been Star Trekked: The first trailer for Paramount and Skydance Productions’ summer 2015 reboot reveals how the time travel sci-fier, starring Game Of ThronesEmilia Clarke as Sarah Connor and Jai Courtney as Kyle Reese, isn’t quite a reboot or a sequel but an alternate timeline shake-up of the familiar Terminator lore.

Kick-Ass Terminator: Genisys Trailer!

4 December 2014 11:35 AM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

"I've been waiting for you."

The first full trailer for Terminator: Genisys has been released, and overall I think it looks awesome. There are a couple parts where I had "Oh, brother" moments, like when they once again reused the line, "Come with me if you want to live." I know they want to harken back to previous films when they do stuff like that, but no one will ever deliver it as well as Arnold Schwarzenegger did. It is fun seeing these characters back in action though, and I love that we have another liquid metal Terminator in the mix. The CG version of Arnold looked a lot better than what we saw in Terminator: Salvation. Then there's Emilia Clarke, who portrays Sarah Connor as a freakin' badass, which is great to see. I'm way excited for the movie, and I think it looks incredibly  promising. It definitely »

First trailer for Terminator: Genisys

4 December 2014 11:20 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It’s been a big few weeks of trailers with our first looks at Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Jurassic World dropping at our feet last week, and now we have Terminator: Genisys from Alan Taylor (Thor: The Dark World).

Check out the trailer below:

Here’s the one-sheet for the movie:

There’s no official synopsis yet, but the movie is set in an alternate timeline in which the T-800 was sent back to raise Sarah Conner as a child, who then teams up with Kyle Reese who was sent back to protect her from a different Terminator sent back by Skynet. To say Terminator: Genisys needs to work hard to win back the naysayers is an understatement. Has this trailer done enough?

Terminator: Genisys is set for release on July 1st 2015 with Arnold Schwarzenegger leading a cast that also includes Emilia Clarke (Game of Thrones), Jason Clarke »
