Untitled-5

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.

Remember those really cool Harry Potter coloring books? We just learned that a Doctor Who version by the same publisher is about to be released and it’s just as cool.

There’s just one thing I want to know –– what are the consequences of coloring a Weeping Angel?

Check out a preview after the break.

Owen James of Maven Industries usually builds and restores custom motorcycles and cars, but James also has a love for all things Doctor Who.

As such, he created this steel Dalek chimenea. It’s cool looking just as a sculpture, but it’s even more beautiful and eerie when it’s fired up. See that in the images below.

Ex-burninate!

Over the weekend the website for the Radio Times – Britain’s equivalent to the TV Guide – exclusively announced that current Doctor Who showrunner Steven Moffat would be leaving the show after its 10th season, and revealed that his successor would be Broadchurch / Gracepoint creator Chris Chibnall. They also revealed that season 10 would be airing in the Spring of 2017, meaning we’ll be waiting slightly over a year for Peter Capaldi’s third full season to begin – though we are still getting the prerequisite Christmas special beforehand.

There’s a lot to unpack here, so let’s start at the beginning.
