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.
Maisie Williams is going from Westeros to the TARDIS: The Game of Thrones fan favorite is shooting a guest spot on the BBC’s Doctor Who.
On her first day on set, the 17-year-old actress said: ”I’m so excited to be working on Doctor Who as it’s such a big and important part of British culture. I can’t wait to meet the cast and crew and start filming, especially as we’ll be shooting not too far from my home town.”
Could Selina Meyer be about to board the TARDIS? Almost certainly not. But Veep creator Armando Iannucci is keen to write for the long-running British time travel show Doctor Who. “I’ve spoken off and on to them but it’s a case of being able to fit something in,” the showrunner told The Guardian.
Every week in Sound Bites, EW covers the most memorable lines of the week. This week, Sound Bites covers the movies and TV specials that came out over the holidays, including Doctor Who’s Christmas special, Chris Pine’s refreshingly witty quip as Cinderella’s Prince in Into the Woods, and the he-said-she-said debacle at the center of Big Eyes. Here are this week’s best lines from TV, film, and pop culture.
This year’s Doctor Who Christmas special, “Last Christmas,” included a tear-inducing farewell for the Doctor’s companion Clara. Well, until it wasn’t. And now the actress who plays Clara has made it clear she’s here to stay.
WHAT WHAT WHAT WHAT WHAT.
That is, I think, the only logical response to the 2014 Doctor Who Christmas Special, an episode which took place in 12 Inceptions’ worth of dreamtime, and also an episode that was a lovely send-off for Clara… until it turned into a five-hankie every-teardrop-is-a-waterfall send-off for Clara… until it suddenly reverse zig-zagged and declared that, actually, Clara’s not going anywhere! WHAT WHAT WHAT WHAT WHAT, indeed!
