Few things are more annoying than getting a drunk text from a stranger in the middle of the night. They are thankfully rare and are usually best ignored. But if you’re bored and feel like messing with a poor, witless drunkard, this might be a fun thing to do. A Doctor Who fan received a mis-sent text that said, “tortyly drunk riht now. straight men everhwere.” Clearly, this was someone who needed to be messed with. Her friend posted screen grabs of the resulting conversation on tckld, and it is hilarious. Doctor Who fans will find one side of the conversation familiar. Even if you aren't a Doctor Who fan, this is pretty funny.
I like to think that guy woke up hungover in a cemetery with no idea how he got there.
P.S. Yes, I know that it is possible to fake text conversations. I don't care. »

1 | Considering Doctor Who‘s Clara has met every incarnation of the Doctor, why did she have such a hard time accepting his latest regeneration? Also, isn’t the Doctor’s “girlfriend” Missy a little too much like River Song, his “wife?”

The first episode of the eight-part paranormal thriller, airing behind the return of “Doctor Who,” delivered 1.5 million viewers, according to Nielsen’s “live plus-3″ estimates. It had averaged 796,000 viewers in the same-night numbers initially reported, so the additional three days of DVR playback added 54% (or 427,000 viewers) to its total.
The show also had a 77% growth among adults 25-54 from its same-night tune-in (rising from 352,000 to 623,000 in “live plus-3″), a significantly greater lift than seen by the series premieres of other BBC America shows like “Atlantis” (+38%) and “Orphan Black” (+29%). “Intruders” is also second only to “Copper” as the channel’s highest series premiere ever in live+3.

Despite sci-fi, fantasy, and superheroes beginning to mesh with modern technology more than ever, we still struggle to imagine our favourite fictional characters with the gadgets that we take for granted. It’s just hard to picture Spider-Man having a crappy day because his phone runs out of credit. Or Han Solo accidentally pressing “Send To All” on a message meant for Princess Leia.
In this modern age, communication is everything. But it’s when communication and technology combine that things get tricky. And when you add time travel and aliens into the mix, well then you’ve just got a series of technology-related disasters waiting to happen. Which brings us to Doctor Who.
Since its revival in 2005, mobile phones have been an ever present part of the Doctor’s arsenal. Whether it’s one of his own or one that he pilfers from a friend. It’s not »

Says Clara in Doctor Who Series 8 premier Deep Breath: “I don’t think I know who the Doctor is anymore” – me too. Exciting, isn’t it?! Yes, he’s back, and apparently it’s time we knew him. Frankly, I would say that it is about time, as from this one episode it would seem that we’ve

Last week, we talked about various ways in which Doctor Who could have turned out very differently than it did – either because an actor stayed on longer than he did, or a pilot went to series, or things simply worked out in other ways. We covered some of the eternal burning questions, such as what would have happened if the Daleks had gotten their own series, or what would have happened if Sarah Jane Smith had gotten her own series far, far earlier than she did. For the most part, our answers were purely speculative – no one really knows what would have happened if, say, Hartnell had been forced out of the series earlier than he was by his bosses. But in a few cases, we know what could have been, and it makes some of us tear our hair out. Or maybe that’s just us…
That list was by no means exhaustive, »

Here we are, nearly a week since Capaldi’s debut as the Doctor in the season opener, Deep Breath, and it’s still captivating our minds. Confession time: I’ve already watched it twice on TV and have since picked it up via iTunes. A strong debut, for sure, but I’ll leave the majority of my thoughts on

Six viewers complained that scene from Peter Capaldis first full episode as the Doctor was gratuitous and unneccessary
The controversial lesbian-lizard kiss in Saturdays Doctor Who episode will not be investigated by the media regulator, which said it did not discriminate between scenes involving opposite sex and same-sex couples.
Six people complained to Ofcom after Saturdays series opener, Peter Capaldis first full episode as the Doctor, in which lizard woman Madame Vastra kissed her human wife, Jenny Flint.

At first prospect, a ‘Doctor-lite’ audio story that features First Doctor companions Steven and Dodo may seem a tough sell. While I’m sure they have their own fans, they’re not typically mentioned in anyone’s top list of companions who’ve travelled with the Doctor through time and space. Perhaps that is a strength. Case in point,

BBC's Doctor Who is a great show, and I can't wait to see what will happen in the future! I just finished the third season, but am doing my best to catch up, and from what I've seen from Capaldi's Doctor, it looks amazing.
