In possibly the most exciting Doctor Who related news this decade, a man and a Dalek appeared on the cover of a local paper. The man is called Simon Danes and the Dalek is called Genevieve (she is a Genesis-type Dalek, you see). The man is dressed up like Tom Baker. The Dalek is naked. ...

Doctor Who has now been lighting up our screens for over half a century and, perhaps even more amazingly than that, it has consistently – well, almost consistently – remained at the top of TV’s highest rated dramas since its inception in 1963. Not too shabby for something that all started out as a mild curiosity in a junkyard, eh?
It hasn’t always been so well received, of course. Every show experiences its ups and downs and the less said about its downfall in the 80s (which ultimately led to its controversial cancellation), the better. What is does deserve credit for, however, is its ability to survive the odds. It looked like it really was the end when the Seventh Doctor and Ace walked into the sunset at the end of Survival but its subsequent and long overdue revival in 2005, which catapulted the series from the realms of cult franchise to international phenomenon, »

In Dark Water, Clara tells the Doctor that she’s never seen lava. Turns out, it’s a big fib. The second part of Terrorformer opens with a few explanatory pages about the Monster of the Month, the Hyperions. Heaps of exposition straight away sounds like a negative thing, but, largely due to the clever ideas behind...

It’s not easy being a Doctor Who fan, you know. It’s a constant battle between what’s right and what’s wrong, what’s good and what’s bad… and whether or not bow ties actually are as cool as a certain incarnation of our beloved Time Lord would have us believe.
Well, at least everyone can agree on that last one (they are cool – don’t listen to River, Ok?!), but everything else is pretty much an open book as far as the musings of a Whovian are concerned. Fans are even arguing within the show’s community about the latest storylines and developments, so they seemingly stand no chance at all when they’re even coming to blows with their own kind.
Seriously. You knew the Doctor Who fandom was vocal, but you actually have to be part of it to understand just how vocal they are. »

Gallifrey returns to the Big Finish range with the first adventure of a four-part serial, Intervention Earth. When you promise the return of Omega, voiced by Stephen Thorne, who played the character so memorably in The Three Doctors, you had better deliver Omega in spades. This Big Finish almost does, and that “almost” is a real...

Here in the states, when I first became aware of Doctor Who in the late nineties, the idea of finding Doctor Who merchandise anywhere was inconceivable. Most people had never heard of the show, let alone bothered to sell anything related to it. If you were lucky, you’d find some old Doctor Who Magazines at the...

There are things in which horny teenaged boys were not meant to meddle. Like we needed the warning. I’m “biast” (pro): I’m a big science fiction geek
I’m “biast” (con): so tired of found footage
(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)
Of all the great time-travel paradoxes, perhaps the most mysterious is this one: Those who dare to tamper with temporal physics never seem to heed the warnings of every piece of time-travel fiction ever, to just not try it, because really bad things will happen for sure. We know for certain that the three high-school guys who are goofing around with time are aware of the potential problems, because Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure, Doctor Who, Back to the Future, and the Terminator franchise all get a name- or visual-check here. But they forge ahead anyway, and it all goes wrong. »

This is the one; the one that most people don’t really like. In strict chronological terms – at the time of writing, at least – The Space Pirates is the last Doctor Who serial ever to suffer from having some or all of its episodes missing, lost in time. It’s actually a rarity in Season...

The actor - who appears in ITV's new drama Arthur & George - told Digital Spy and other press that he got the audition "spectacularly wrong".
"But I just completely wasn't expecting or didn't cotton on to what Andrew [Scott] eventually did. He's fantastic in it, but that's not how I saw it at all - so I missed that boat."
The role of good-natured Edalji particularly appealed to him after playing unscrupulous »
Released next Wednesday, March 4th, is Doctor Who: The Eleventh Doctor #9 from Titan Comics, written by Al Ewing and featuring the artistic skills of Boo Cook! Below not only do you have a preview of this forthcoming issue but you also get to see the variant covers…
Fresh from a bruising battle with the Amstrons, the Doctor has decided that enough is enough – if SERVEYOUinc won’t stop plaguing him and his friends wherever they land, he’s going to hit them where it hurts – by buying a controlling interest in the company!
But what does the Doctor’s corporate career mean for Alice, Arc and Jones? Is there a place for them in the Doctor’s bold new venture? And what kind of sting does SERVEYOUinc have left to deploy?
Doctor Who: The Eleventh Doctor is released on the 4th March, priced $3.99

As each incarnation of the Doctor can define a generation, so too can his companions. For many viewers a Doctor’s time aboard the Tardis can be broken down into smaller, more manageable, chunks defined by whoever the Doctor was travelling with at the time. The Tenth Doctor’s earlier days travelling with Rose are distinctly different to when he was gallivanting around with Donna Noble, for example.
That said, Whovians so often wish for certain favourite companions (past and present to meet. Nothing anchors the fact that the each incarnation of the Doctor is, in fact, the same man like having a companion from the early days of Doctor Who crop up in a modern episode. Everybody remembers the hype surrounding the return of Sarah Jane Smith! The ‘squee’s of fans could be heard around the globe as Sarah Jane and Rose Tyler went tête-à-tête in a »

We’ve heard this week that ITV will be making two TV movies featuring original/comedy Ninth Doctor Rowan Atkinson as Parisian Detective, or Commissaire, Jules Maigret. The 75 novels by the prolific Georges Simnon were published from 1930 through to the early 70s and have been adapted into radio and television stories in numerous countries including Russia,...

Unbelievable as it may seem, there are still those out there that don’t get, don’t understand,our Doctor and the love we Whovians have for him. They can’t understand why we like a tv show that is so old, has “crappy” and “cheesey” special effects, and sometimes makes no sense. Wibbley wobbley timey what? These naysayers...

Landing next week is Doctor Who: The Tenth Doctor #8 from writer Robbie Morrison (2000Ad) and artist Daniel Indro (Sherlock Holmes: Moriarty Lives) and those rather splendid people at Titan Comics have sent over a preview for you to have a quick peek at…
Trapped in a tunnel beneath No Man’s Land, the Doctor and the surviving soldiers under his protection fight for their lives – with open eyes! With the Tardis lost, the Weeping Angels on one side and the might of the German front lines on the other, how much will the Doctor sacrifice to keep Gabby safe?

When I began reviewing the Companion Chronicles last year, I really had no reason to suspect I’d like the line so much. After all, and I noted often, most of the stories would have worked better as full cast audios (in my opinion, of course). However, my appreciation for the format increased and there has been...

Cards on the table: I loved the Virgin New Adventures and their BBC Books incarnation too, but when Doctor Who returned in 2005 the range suddenly became quite… childish, I suppose. So when I heard about the Colonel Lethbridge-Stewart series of books, and saw the roster of authors, I had high hopes. Lance Parkin, Nick...
