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.

You can grab it and control the universe for $20 at the BBC America booth (4129) as long as supplies last.

Check out another picture of the game after the break.

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.

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…

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.

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.

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.

This mashup art featuring the characters of Doctor Who in the style of Adventure Time is the work of cartoonist Alex Dempsey. He calls it Adventure Time and Space! and it kind of makes us wish this was an actual cartoon. Speaking to io9, Dempsey said:

“I’ve always loved crossovers where there’s a link between the two pieces of media. I find it justifies the crossover and gives them a reason to be thrown together. In [the case of Adventure Time and Space!], it was the link between the term ‘An Adventure in Time and Space’ and the Title ‘Adventure Time’ and putting the two shows together seemed to work perfectly.”

There’s also a second series called The Doctor Dances that is even more adorable.
