Is Peter Capaldi freaking out about losing his Comic-Con virginity at the Doctor Who panel in Hall H? What can he tell us about the still-being-filmed new season of the British science fiction show (which premieres on BBC America this fall)?
The BBC announced today that Tank Girl filmmaker Rachel Talalay has returned to Doctor Who to direct this year’s two-part, currently-being-shot season finale.
In reality, 13 different actors have portrayed the 13 different Doctors on Doctor Who. But according to artist Brandon Bird’s latest series of portraits, Shia LaBeouf played each and every one—even the War Doctor.
Doctor Who fans in America should make sure that their passports are in order—and their fezes nicely buffed. Why? Because BBC Worldwide has announced that the Time Lord himself, Peter Capaldi, is set to attend an official Doctor Who festival which will take place at London’s ExCeL Exhibition Centre on Nov. 13, 14, and 15. The ExCeL also hosted the Doctor Who 50th Celebration Weekend, back in 2013.
Fans of Doctor Who are used to seeing star Peter Capaldi’s Time Lord in the seemingly infinite interior of his ship, the TARDIS. But how will the Scottish actor handle Comic-Con’s smaller, but still dauntingly capacious, Hall H?
“Death be not proud, though some have called thee mighty and dreadful,” British poet John Donne famously wrote, “for thou art not so.” That’s doubly true when it comes to Doctor Who.
Plenty of beautiful music has come from over 50 years of Doctor Who, including the iconic theme music that has endured throughout its history.
And while that music has changed in many ways over the last few decades, composer Ron Grainer’s original music remains a joy to listen to. Player Piano celebrated that theme’s history with a beautiful piano arrangement.
Composer and pianist Sonya Belousova brings Grainer’s theme to life in a new video from Player Piano, complete with a Doctor Who theme set.
There’s a new way to watch the good Doctor’s adventures, current and future Whovians.
Disney XD has announced that it will begin airing seasons 2 through 4 of the modern incarnation of BBC’s Doctor Who, which would encompass David Tennant’s time as the Tenth Doctor.
Doctor Who executive producer Steven Moffat doesn’t actually own a time machine—as far as we know. But that hasn’t prevented him from announcing that the long-running British sci-fi show will stay on the air for at least another five years. According to U.K.’s Radio Times, Moffat told Doctor Who Magazine that the BBC’s plans for the show extend to 2020.
A Doctor Who movie? Not happening. A Doctor Who and Sherlock cross-over? Also not happening. A less grumpy Peter Capaldi in season 9? Might be happening just a little. Executive producer Steven Moffat gave EW the current lowdown on two projects that seem to resurface in the online rumor mill time and again, as well as recent reports of a lighter Time Lord.
