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…]


Attendees at New York Comic-Con have been given a look at the trailers for the upcoming Doctor Who Christmas special and the spin-off Class. Since I am something of an Doctor Who uber-fan, I’m not going to stop with just the videos. I’m also going to dive into the spin-off with a brief rundown of what we already know about the series, and a bit of analysis of the trailer. Aren’t you lucky? [click to continue…]


Geeks love two things: They love song mashups, and they love Doctor Who. Possibly they love other things as well, but science has yet to confirm that. Wonderful, then, that Doctor Who fan Ginger Ten has mashed Doctor Who with the Plain White T’s song “Hey There Delilah” to produce, of course, “Hey There, Rose Tyler”.

The inspiration behind Ginger Ten’s mashup was, no surprise, the series 2 finale “Doomsday” where Rose departs from the show, and she and the Doctor make their (as they believed) final farewells. Unfortunately their farewell is cut short before the Doctor gets to tell Rose how he feels.

“I think I cried for a good 15 minutes after having to see them attempt their goodbyes, only to have them cut short,” says Ginger Ten. “It was particularly devastating because of how much I empathize with Ten. The song is basically my way of expressing Ten’s need to say all those things he never got a chance to say at Bad Wolf Bay.”

The song has been given the “lyrics video” treatment by YouTubesmith The Broken Frozen Heart. You  can watch that video below. [click to continue…]


In last year’s season of Doctor Who, viewers saw the end of the Doctor’s Sonic Screwdriver, replaced as it was for a few episodes by Sonic Sunglasses (presumably borrowed from some kind of Sonic Blues Brother). But the season finale saw the return of the Doctor’s most faithful companion in a revitalized (dare we say regenerated) form. The Doctor even got to put it to use, albeit briefly, during the 2015 Christmas special “The Husbands of River Song”.

Now, just five short months later, you can finally own the Doctor’s new Sonic Screwdriver for yourself.

One thing that makes Peter Capaldi’s turn as The Doctor so delightful is that he is probably the most hardcore Doctor Who fan that has ever been in the role.

As if you needed more evidence of his supreme Doctor Who geekdom, Capaldi recently attended an exhibit at the Cartoon Museum in London honoring art from the classic Doctor Who stories published by Target books. The books we a touchstone for many classic Who fans who wanted to revisit episodes that had already aired or were no longer available.

As you’ll see in the video below, there’s something special about listening to Capaldi and Moffat talk about what both the stories and artwork mean to them.

Doctor Who LEGO sets are a real thing now, fulfilling a wish I’ve had since I was about 5-years old, but that isn’t stopping Whovians from creating their own original LEGO creations.

Whovians like Adam Dodge, who has created a bloody spectacular Who-themed chess set.

As you probably heard over the weekend, the BBC has revealed the Doctor’s newest companion and her name is Bill. Played by Pearl Mackie, Bill is a newcomer to the Doctor and his adventures, which is wonderfully refreshing when she has questions about Daleks and why they’re dangerous.

Something tells me The Doctor’s going to have his hands full with this one.

Oh, and did you notice the Purple Rain shirt? Indeed, Mackie inadvertently used her character’s intro to pay a subtle tribute to Prince. Doctor Who brand manager Edward Russell revealed that the video below was filmed nearly two weeks ago.

Bruce Campbell loves being a jerk (fictionally, anyway) and people would expect a prank from him on April Fools’ Day—but claiming that he was going to be the new American Doctor may have been a step too far for some.

Hope is a fragile thing, Bruce. You broke some hearts with this one.

Hail to the king of April Fools, baby.

A lot of actors claim to read the comics associated with their films or shows, but Doctor Who‘s Peter Capaldi (better known as the 12th Doctor) proved once again how far his love for the show goes. As any talented gentleman would, the actor created a painting inside of a personalized card meant for comic artist Rachel Stott, whose pen currently graces the pages of the Doctor Who series out by Titan Comics.

Here’s what the good Doctor had to say:

This trailer proves that inserting any franchise into The Force Awakens trailer template makes it the must-see movie of the year.

YouTuber VG934 writes:

Being the huge Doctor Who and Star Wars fan that I am, how could I resist the chance to bring these two massive franchises together? Well sort of bring them together, let’s call it Who Wars.

Some may call me late to the party but I must remind you that a Wizard is never late, nor is he early – he arrives precisely when he means to. Alas, I’m no Wizard but the same principle applies.

I think you’re right on time, VG934. Now go make me a full length version.

Check out the trailer below.
