The trailer for Peter Capaldi’s final season as the Doctor has landed, and there’s quite a bit to digest in only one minute of footage. There’s a weird emoji robot, and lots of things are back, like old school Cybermen, an old school sonic screwdriver, ice warriors, Missy and so on. Pour over all of the details below.

The BBC has announced that the original Mondasian Cybermen that first terrorized William Hartnell’s Doctor in the 1966 episode “The Tenth Planet” will return in episodes 11 and 12 of the upcoming season. Presumably, they’re back to show the current Iron Man-style Cybermen how to REALLY creep people out. [click to continue…]
As you surely know by now, Peter Capaldi will be leaving Doctor Who after season 10 wraps. However, we can put off being bummed about it until Christmas 2017 because we still have plenty of episodes featuring the 12th Doctor left to watch. Plus, Missy’s back!
You can watch her spruce up the TARDIS in the video below—and, perhaps, offer a small hint about what’s to come. [click to continue…]
Given that Chris Chibnall will be replacing longtime Doctor Who showrunner Steven Moffat at the end of the season, it comes as no great surprise that Peter Capaldi would choose the 2017 Christmas Special to end his tenor as the 12th Doctor. The BBC has confirmed the news: [click to continue…]
Funko may be trying to bury us all in cute figures and plushes. To that end they’ve unveiled yet another line: 6″ Playmobil figures.
They already have figures for Ghostbusters, Doctor Who, TMNT, Back To The Future and Willy Wonka. I can only imagine what’s coming in the future. Probably everything. [click to continue…]
In addition to the Christmas Special last night, the BBC released a sneak peek of the long awaited Season 10 featuring Pearl Mackie as the Doctor’s new companion Bill. It isn’t much, but I’ll take it. Oh how I’ve missed this show. Watch it below. [click to continue…]

Are you planning to crush up some Adipose Industries diet pills in Santa’s cookies this year? Do you have any idea what kind of chaos that will create? You’re a maniac that must be stopped—or maybe just a deranged fan that really wants to meet the Doctor.

Longtime fans of Doctor Who will know Big Finish for their ongoing range of audio dramas featuring past Doctors, which they’ve been doing since 1999. In recent years they’ve given us a number of nice treats, including new adventures featuring the Tenth Doctor and Donna Noble and a series of box sets following the exploits of John Hurt’s Doctor during the Time War.
But their upcoming audio drama “Order of the Daleks” sees – or rather, hears – Colin Baker as the Sixth Doctor going up against an iron-framed stained-glass Dalek with a trident instead of a plunger. Big Finish director Jamie Anderson brought in designer Chris Thompson to render the Dalek for the cover art: [click to continue…]
Oh, alright then.
Usually when you see a mash-up of two different brands that seem like a good fit it’s a fan-made bit of work. Not this, though – the BBC have partnered with Penguin Random House to produce a series of Doctor Who-themed Mr. Men books that will roll out starting in the spring of 2017.
The books will be illustrated by Mr. Men creator Roger Hargreaves’ son Adam, and the first set of books will feature the First, Fourth, Eleventh and Twelfth Doctors—but the range will eventually feature a book for all twelve Doctors (no, sir – all thirteen! …Assuming they do the War Doctor, of course).
As well as the books, there’ll be merchandise featuring Hargreaves’ take on the various Doctors Who. So, uh, wave goodbye to your wallet, I guess. Check out the covers for the first four books in the range below. [click to continue…]
