What can you say about Maisie Williams?
Don’t blame Steven Moffat if we never get a Sherlock-Doctor Who crossover episode.
“I work with boring people on both shows,” joked Moffat, who co-created Sherlock and serves as lead writer and executive producer for Doctor Who. “I’d do it, ‘cause it’d be funny. It’d just be a laugh. But the rest of them, frankly, the grownups — ‘No, you can have too much sugar.’”
The Doctor goes to some dark places in season 9, judging from a new trailer released during the Doctor Who panel presentation at San Diego’s Comic-Con International.
The trailer (watch it above) features Peter Capaldi’s Doctor, Jenna Coleman as Clara, and Michelle Gomez as the mysterious Missy. Season 9 is set to debut on Sept. 19.
Hello Whovians! The good Doctor won’t return to our timeline until this fall, when Peter Capaldi’s second season of Doctor Who lands on our television screens, and we know that’s making some of you feel like the girl who waited. Luckily for you and us, EW will be chatting it up soon with Capaldi and his companion, Jenna Coleman, who will be coming hot off their Hall H panel at Comic Con.
Before Thursday’s Doctor Who panel, here’s a refresher on the BBC America drama:
Where we left off: The usual place — which is to say, with the Doctor (Peter Capaldi) and Clara (Jenna Coleman) reunited and preparing to visit new places and times in a blue box which is bigger on the inside than it appears from its exterior. So, not really that usual.
The Doctor Who panel featured current Doctor Peter Capaldi, once-and-future companion Jenna Coleman, and longtime showrunner Steven Moffat — plus newcomer Michelle Gomez, who played the villainous Missy last season. (SPOILER ALERT: “Missy” is short for “The Mistress,” because Missy is the latest regeneration of longtime baddie The Master.) The panel shared one piece of exciting news — new season debuting Sept. 19!
It’s a fan-fiction writer’s dream come true—provided that dream is built entirely from Legos. The franchise-mashing Lego Dimensions, due this fall, will bring together some of pop culture’s most beloved characters, everyone from Superman to Gandalf to Back to the Future’s Doc Brown. And for a game spanning so many different worlds, it’s only fitting that a spacefaring time traveler would be among the cast, transported here by a Jurassic World dinosaur.
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.
