Did You Know?


The War Doctor came about because Christopher Eccleston declined to appear in Doctor Who: The Day of the Doctor (2013). Steven Moffat briefly considered positioning the Eighth Doctor as the Doctor who had ended the Time War, but felt that this was inconsistent with Doctor Who (1996). See more »


After River's projection says she was the one to open the door, she walks to the right hand side. At this point no one except Clara can see her, however although he is out of focus, you can see Dr Simeon's eye-line follow her as she disappears off camera. See more »


Whisper Men: This man must fall, as all men must. The fate of all is always dust... The man who lies, will lie no more. When this man lies at Trenzalore... The girl who died, he tried to save. She'll die again inside his grave.

The Real Doctor

Dear Brits:

Okay, I know that David Tennant was the 10th doctor, but I think he should come back. He IS the Doctor. He isn't just acting as the doctor. He lives and breathes the doctor with his charisma, intelligence, can-do attitude, and let's face it...overall cuteness.

When he is on the Tardis you want to go with him. And when he says, "I'll be back" you know he'll be back.

Ladies, when Rose fell in love with the Doctor...didn't we want to be Rose? Fall in love with doctor who and bring the real doctor back.

Sincerely, Michelle-Alexandra Brown: The girl living on top of the world.
