We’ve got questions, and you’ve (maybe) got answers! With another week of TV gone by, we’re lobbing queries left and right about shows including Marvel’s Jessica Jones, Doctor Who, The Good Wife and Chicago Fire!
1 | Has Jessica Jones given young women the easiest (and a modest!) superhero costume to pull off? (That said, doesn’t it kind of look like Shiri Appleby’s UnREAL wardrobe?) And after so many start-and-stops, has Rachael Taylor (Charlie’s Angels, 666 Park, Crisis…) finally found herself a winner?

They’re still out there, podcasting about Doctor Who with their familiar-sounding “PodKast with a K” I for one was particularly disappointed to find the terrible trio of Doctor Who fandom were still...

The first episode of Doctor Who was broadcast on the 23rd November, 1963. It was beamed into the homes of an unsuspecting British public using radio waves, which are part of the electromagnetic spectrum.
These radio waves didn’t just stay in our tellies, however, and will have radiated out into space at the speed of light. By now, the first episode of Doctor Who will be more than 50 light years away from the Earth. Who knows, perhaps a passing alien has managed to pick it up by now.
If some lucky alien was receiving broadcasts of one of Britain’s greatest exports, what would this hyper-intelligent extraterrestrial think of our scientific know how?
Well, as is often the way, a lot of the science fiction in the show can actually be seen reflected in the world of science fact. Either by careful research or sheer dumb luck, the »

It is with great sadness that we announce the death of Anthony Read at the age of 80. Anthony played a key role as script editor of Doctor Who during Graham Williams time as producer in 1978. He also wrote the story The Horns of Nimon (How many Nimons have you seen today?) and collaborated with Williams to...

From Die Hard to Star Wars, we've started putting together our collection of favourite Christmas jumpers. Add yours!
Ridiculous woolly jumpers are as intrinsic to Christmas as turkey, Doctor Who and falling asleep on the sofa while your loved ones laugh at you. Nothing says ‘I can be fun and festive!” quite like a comical over-garment.
In recent years, we’ve noticed a massive influx in geek-friendly winter wear thanks to a range of websites seemingly dedicated to keeping us feeling warm but looking cool during the festive season. Either that, or they’re keen to make sure we spend most of December explaining the obscure knitted reference to our perplexed friends and relatives.
We’ve put 25 of our favourites (and links to the respective sites) in the gallery above, but we’re interested to see if you can do better. If you’ve got a Christmas »
The 50th anniversary episode of Doctor Who, The Day of the Doctor, was a landmark in the shows history. It was simulcast in 94 countries and shown in 1,500 cinemas around the world – a spectacular success for TV’s longest-running sci-fi series. There were documentaries on almost all BBC channels and a massive three-day convention at London’s...

Things get controversial this week on the podcast, as Noel Kirkpatrick from TV.com returns to help Kate break down the week’s TV. First up are the comedies, including Thanksgiving-inspired episodes of Fresh Off the Boat, Jane the Virgin, and Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, and we round out our week in TV with the genre and drama offerings, including Adventure Time: Stakes, Limitless, Manhattan, and Fargo. Afterward, it’s time for another season spotlight, as Noel and Kate dive deep with season one of Netflix’s Jessica Jones, a feminist, noir addition to the Marvel TV universe.

Miasimia Goria was a quiet planet, an ancient world of bucolic tranquillity… until the Rani arrived with ideas of her own. She planned to create a race of new gods… gods that she could keep on her leash, but those plans went horribly wrong. Now, she languishes in the high security of Teccaurora Penitentiary, consigned...

For a show that’s essentially about escapism and wonder, it shouldn’t go unnoticed that Doctor Who is capable of laying down some pretty heavy lessons. In amongst the stuff about appreciating the wonder of the universe, rejecting cynicism, and embracing joy there is the occasional acknowledgement that sometimes things just suck and there’s nothing we can do about it.
For a long time (in the classic iteration of the show) it was fashionable amongst the fanbase to not be overly bothered by this sort of thing. The real tragedies were mostly reserved for the guest cast, and even when the harsh light of truth fell on one of the main characters we just sort of rolled with it and moved on. Sarah Jane’s leaving arguably broke the hearts of a generation, but it wasn’t until she came back in the new series that we »

There.s a glorious Britishness to Victor Frankenstein. Sure, it might have struck me more powerfully than most as I am an Expat currently holed up across the pond that longs daily for proper bacon, cups of tea, and the demolishment of the word "soccer." But it.s definitely there. In fact, Victor Frankenstein director Paul McGuigan has admitted that two of the country.s greatest exports -- Doctor Who and Sherlock -- both hugely influenced and inspired his film, while James McAvoy even teased that this was his Doctor Who audition tape. I had the great pleasure of sitting down with Paul McGuigan earlier this month to talk about Victor Frankenstein in New York. I decided to mention the similarities I.d noticed between Victor Frankenstein and the two British shows. And since Paul McGuigan has directed four episodes of the Benedict Cumberbatch=led Sherlock, he was very pleased »
Two years to the day after the widely watched and celebrated “Doctor Who” 50th anniversary special aired, showrunner Steven Moffat is opening up a bit more about the making of that special, which came in a year Moffat has called nightmarish. (The guy was swamped making a lot of TV that year.) In an interview with Radio Times, Moffat revealed that he almost convinced Christopher Eccleston to reprise his role as the Ninth Doctor in that special, which ended up featuring Matt Smith, David Tennant and the newly introduced War Doctor, played by John Hurt. It didn’t come as a surprise that Eccleston — who left the show after one season and has not kept it a secret that he had some level of unhappiness being involved — chose to not partake in the making of “The Day of the Doctor.” And Moffat has said before that he met with Eccleston to discuss the 50th. »

52 years ago today, viewers first watched a show that would become a British and sci-fi icon. “Doctor Who” premiered on this date on BBC in 1963. In that episode, William Hartnell played the first iteration of the Time Lord who would take audiences on all sorts of fun, odd, and even sorrowful adventures through spacetime. He played the character for four seasons (series, to you British folks), and since then — thanks to the Doctor’s two hearts and ability to regenerate — 11 more (11ish more) men have played the character. Though “Doctor Who” started off airing just in the U.K., the show has since managed to capture millions upon millions of hearts all around the world — even though we humans only have one each. For evidence of the show’s popularity and impact, just turn to the Oxford English Dictionary — which has a few entries from “Doctor Who,” including Tardis — or »

52 years ago, at 5:16pm, Doctor Who premiered on BBC1. The Doctor and the Tardis; the theme tune; the Vworp! Vworp! dematerialisation; the otherworldiness; the questions about time and space: they were all there, right away. This morning, I fired up the DVD player and stuck in An Unearthly Child. Over the next day or two, I’ll watch...

Viewers voiced concern over The Zygon Inversion episode showing doppelganger of Doctor’s assistant Clara firing bazooka at plane
Ofcom has decided against launching an investigation into an episode of Doctor Who that was branded insensitive for showing a plane being shot down soon after the crash of a flight out of Egypt.
The broadcasting regulator received 31 complaints about the episode, which aired a week after a Metrojet airliner crashed, probably due to a terrorist bomb, killing all 224 people on board.

Here’s something very few people know about me: nearly a decade ago, I was working on a project to catalogue all the behind-the-scenes details of each story, plus subsequent broadcast and merchandising information. The idea was to create a definitive guide to the series, from 1963 to the present. Where did I start? The very...
