Some familiar faces return in the first trailer for the Doctor Who 2017 Christmas Special

15 hours ago | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Jon Lyus

Just over a week ago The BBC announced the new Doctor Who. Jodie Whittaker, whose turns in Black Mirror and Broadchurch (as well as the wonderful 2017 film Adult Life Skills) attest, is more than capable of taking the iconic sci-fi character to new places. She will appear in the final moments of the 2017 Doctor Who Christmas Special – entitled Twice Upon a Time. The first trailer for this final episode for the Twelfth Doctor has arrived, with one or two familiar faces.

At this weekend’s San Diego Comic Con the outgoing Doctor, Peter Capaldi, spoke about his replacement and gave the following statement of encouragement,

“I think Jodie is going to be amazing. I spoke to her the other day and she’s so full of excitement and passion about the show. It’s thrilling to know it’s in the hands of someone who cares for »

BBC America dropped a first-look trailer for this year’s Doctor Who Christmas special, titled “Twice Upon a Time,” during the show’s Comic-Con panel on Sunday.

23 July 2017 2:19 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

[Editor’s Note: The following contains spoilers from the Season 10 finale of “Doctor Who” below.]

While everyone is in a tizzy over the casting of Jodie Whittaker as the new star of “Doctor Who,” let’s not forget that we’re not done with Peter Capaldi quiet yet.

The Comic-Con panel for “Doctor Who” on Sunday served as a farewell to Capaldi, who came on as the 12th Doctor in the long-running sci-fi series. Also bidding adieu to Twelve were his co-stars Pearl Mackie who plays companion Bill, Matt Lucas who plays assistant Nardole, Michelle Gomez who plays Missy, writer Mark Gatiss and showrunner Steven Moffat.

Former ‘Doctor Who’ Actor Peter Davison Mourns the ‘Loss of Role Models for Boys’

21 July 2017 3:38 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Former “Doctor Who” actor Peter Davison is feeling fragile after learning that the 13th Doctor would be played by a woman, “Broadchurch” star Jodie Whittaker.

“If I feel any doubts, it’s the loss of a role model for boys who I think ‘Doctor Who’ is vitally important for,” Davison told the Telegraph before a San Diego Comic Con appearance. “So I feel a bit sad about that, but I understand the argument that you need to open it up.” Apparently, Davison feels a bit sad about a woman getting an opportunity.

He added that he thought Whittaker was a “terrific” actress, and called himself “a dinosaur.”

Davison played the fifth Doctor, from 1981-1984. He is also very enmeshed in the “Doctor Who” family, as he happens to be father-in-law to David Tenannt, the 1oth Doctor. »

Why such fuss about a female Doctor? | Letters

21 July 2017 10:11 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Readers respond to the news that Jodie Whittaker will play the Time Lord in Doctor Who

Of course we must applaud the arrival of Jodie Whittaker in the role of the Doctor in Doctor Who (Time for change, G2, 18 July). After all, think of all those young men who took the best female parts in Shakespeare’s day. There’s a lot of redressing to do. Really though, the revolution is not all that great. The Doctor is a shape-changer, so it’s not such a big step to become a sex-changer too. We need something more. Female actors have taken male roles in living memory – think Fiona Shaw as Richard II, though Richard was neither hero nor heroine (perish the word). A performance of A Midsummer Night’s Dream I have just witnessed in the new Chester theatre points the way: Lysander is played by a black female actor »

Former Doctor Who Star Would Prefer If The Character Remained A Man

21 July 2017 9:59 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It seems that one former star of Doctor Who is not entirely pleased with the fact that Jodie Whittaker has been cast as the new Doctor in the British sci-fi institution –  the first time an actress has played the titular Time Lord in the show’s 54 year history.

Peter Davison – who portrayed the Fifth Doctor from 1982-84 – revealed his feelings during an appearance at San Diego Comic-Con. To be clear, Davison remarked that Whittaker was “a terrific actress” and admitted that he was probably a bit of a “dinosaur,” but he did say that he would prefer it if the Doctor remained a man.

“If I feel any doubts, it’s the loss of a role model for boys who I think Doctor Who is vitally important for. So  I feel a bit sad about that, but I understand the argument that you need to open it up.”

BBC Hits Back at Wage Gap Critics, Saying New ‘Doctor Who’ Will Earn Equal Pay

21 July 2017 7:13 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The BBC has been accused of sexism after releasing its top stars’ earnings, which revealed a major disparity between the salaries of women and men.

According to the pay data, which the broadcaster released for the first time in its history, only one third of top-paid stars are women, and a small fraction are non-white. The numbers revealed that the highest-paid male celebrity, BBC Radio host Chris Evans, earned at least four times as much as the highest-paid woman, “Strictly Come Dancing” host Claudia Winkleman.

20 July 2017 9:47 PM, PDT | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

We don't have to waste time wondering if the Broadchurch TV show will be cancelled or renewed for a fourth season. More than a year ahead of this installment's premiere on BBC America, creator Chris Chibnall made it clear he was working toward a third and final season. We’re still tracking the Broadchurch season three ratings, for a couple of reasons. It can help predict the likelihood of a spin-off, sequel, or later revival. It also helps us gauge the chances of other BBC America shows. What's more -- it keeps us off the streets at night. A British crime drama on the BBC America cable channel, Broadchurch stars Olivia Colman and David Tennant.

‘Krypton’: Superman’s Grandfather Will Redeem the House of El — Watch

20 July 2017 9:13 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

As Comic-Con kicked off in earnest on Thursday, Syfy traveled across the galaxy to land on Superman’s home planet.

In the “Krypton” sneak peek teaser below, the action takes place two generations before the Man of Steel was born and the titular planet was destroyed. Seyg-El (Cameron Cuffe) is his grandfather, seen here as a young man who looks to be in his 20s.

Although Superman, born Kal-El, is a hero to us mere humans, his family didn’t enjoy that kind of appreciation. The House of El was ostracized and shamed, and it was up to Seyg-El to fight to redeem his family’s honor and save his world.

That isn’t the only house name we may recognize. Among the cast are also Georgina Campbell (“Broadchurch”) and Ann Ogbomo, who play Lyta Zod and Alura Zod, respectively. »

BBC One Responds to Female 'Doctor Who' Casting Haters, Says Jodie Whittaker Will be an 'Iconic Doctor'

19 July 2017 1:48 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

BBC One is behind Jodie Whittaker all the way.

After the British media company received some sexist complaints in response to its announcement that the 13th Doctor in the long-running Doctor Who series would be a woman for the first time, the network published a polite response that resoundingly supported Whitaker.

News: 'Doctor Who' Announces the History-Making 13th Doctor Will Be a Woman

"Since the first Doctor regenerated back in 1966, the concept of the Doctor as a constantly evolving being has been central to the programme," they said in a statement. "The continual input of fresh ideas and new voices across the cast and the writing and production teams has been key to the longevity of the series. The Doctor is an alien from the planet Gallifrey and it has been established in the show that Time Lords can switch gender."

‘Doctor Who’: Jodie Whittaker Casting Complaints Prompt BBC Response: ‘The Doctor Is an Alien’

19 July 2017 9:10 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

On Sunday, many cries of joy were heard across the Whoniverse when “Broadchurch” actress Jodie Whittaker was cast as the very first female Doctor in the long-running BBC science fiction series “Doctor Who.”

The groundbreaking decision was the next logical step for the evolution of the alien character, but not unusual for the show itself, which had already established that Time Lords could switch genders. It was also long overdue. The series started over 50 years ago and has always featured a straight, white male in the starring role through 12 different incarnations (13, if you count the “Hurt Doctor” or “War Doctor” John Hurt).
