doctor who lifespan

There have been 12 Doctors in Doctor Who with varying amounts of screen time and episodes. Paul Smith calculated the on-screen lifespan of each of those Doctors and put it into a handy chart showing the hours and minutes of each Doctor. The 4th Doctor played by Tom Baker clocks in at over 71 hours while the 8th Doctor played by Paul McGann has one hour and four minutes as the Time Lord.

Be sure to click the chart to enlarge it and see all the details.

A Sherlock and Doctor Who crossover is high on the wishlist of many fans. But what if their meeting involved music? YouTuber AVbyte made it happen in his fan film Wholock: The Musical. The Doctor tries to get Sherlock to be his companion, and Sherlock tries to get the Doctor to be his new Watson. It’s as charming as it sounds, and man, can the actors in the roles sing.

Watch the musical after the break.

Pandorica-Yahtzee-2

Do you dare open the Pandorica? The BBC will be offering a special exclusive at San Diego Comic-Con that encourages you to do just that. They’ve come up with a Doctor Who spin on Yahtzee, and the classic game has never looked cooler. The Yahtzee cup is the Pandorica, and the dice are a striking transculent green.

lego doctor who 1

Doctor Who has had many faces and many lives stretching all the way back to 1963. The first episode of the series, “An Unearthly Child,” was shaky, but it opened the door. It seems only fitting for such a historical occurrence to be commemorated in LEGO, and LEGO Ideas user Concore has done just that.

He proposes a set featuring the TARDIS, the junkyard from the episode, and four minifigures: the Doctor, Susan, Ian, and Barbara.

See more images of the sets after the break.

doctor who 50th

The 50th anniversary of Doctor Who made a splash last year with “The Day of the Doctor.” The special brought in the War Doctor and put the 11th and 12th Doctors onto the screen to share scenes. It was memorable, and YouTuber bookshelfprodutions captured some of the coolest moments of the show with LEGO. He animated the scenes in stop-motion style.

Watch the short after the break.

Doctor Who fans have noticed that a robotic character briefly glimpsed in the season 8 trailer bears a striking resemblance to Garrus from Mass Effect. Eurogamer picked up on the similarities too, but they noted that the show’s creators are pretty big fans of Mass Effect. So maybe this whole delicate situation is more of a homage than outright thievery? Honestly, the Doctor Who crew are all rather creative, so I’m inclined to give them the benefit of the doubt.

In case you missed it, you can watch the new Doctor Who trailer after the break…

capaldi and coleman

The premiere of season 8 of Doctor Who is about five weeks away, and though we’ve recently seen a teaser, Entertainment Weekly has shared the first official photo of Peter Capaldi and Jenna Coleman on screen together in the first episode of the season. While they’re clearly in period costumes, I wouldn’t wind mind seeing Capaldi wear a tidier version of the same outfit as his regular ensemble.

japanese doctor who

This retro-style video is the amazing work of one Joshua Kahan who has not only created a parody of Doctor Who, but several other nerdy franchises. Really, you have to watch this one more than once because you’ll be laughing so hard you’ll miss half of it the first time.

There are references to the Japanese Super Sentai and The Mighty Morphin Power Rangers with Cybermen who’ve morphed into the Putty Patrol. The best part may be the Sonic Screwdriver/Green Ranger Dragon Dagger flute. Mighty Morphin Doctor is here to save us all!

See the video after the break.

doctor

We just got a new teaser trailer for Doctor Who series 8 and, while it’s short, we may be getting a hint of what’s to come thanks to the voice of a very familiar nemesis who finds The Doctor’s hatred beautiful.

It seems the Doctor has some unresolved anger issues. That’ll be interesting to explore. August 23rd can’t come soon enough.

Check it out after the break.
