The Series 8 premiere of Doctor Who with Peter Capaldi taking over as the Twelfth Doctor is almost upon us. His puppet version, however, has already arrived in the latest episode of Doctor Puppet. The webseries, created and animated by Alisa Stern, has been chronicling the adventures of Doctor Puppet in his various incarnations. The new Doctor gets a warm welcome in this adorable episode titled Striking Twelve.

Only a week before the season premiere of Doctor Who and rumors are swirling that Jenna-Louise Coleman will be exiting the show at Christmas after 18 months as a Companion. According to a source quoted in The Mirror:

“The conversations about Jenna’s exit have started, and a plan is in place which is being ironed out. By the time she leaves she will be one of the longest-standing companions ever. She has been absolutely brilliant in the role, but everyone agrees it is a part that should change after a period.”

The source also said that this is a mutual decision on the parts of all parties involved. A Christmas exit would have Coleman appearing in 25 episodes of the show which is more than fellow companions Catherine Tate and Freema Agyeman, and only a few less than Billie Piper.

Assuming that this is true (the timing seems right though The Mirror isn’t known for its accuracy), let the speculation begin as to who will be Capaldi’s new Companion!

You’ve probably seen several teasers for the beginning of the Capaldi era of Doctor Who, but you likely have not seen this trailer which has been making the rounds on Twitter. Give it a watch and see what’s in store when the episode titled “Deep Breath” finally airs later this month (including Capaldi in a nightgown and a peek at the new TARDIS interior).

We’ll soon get to see Peter Capaldi and Jenna Coleman back on the small screen when the next series of Doctor Who debuts with Deep Breath in just a few weeks. The pair have been busy promoting the series on the Doctor Who World Tour and recently made a stop in Seoul where Capaldi showed off his dance moves. It’s sure to put a smile on your face, even on a Monday.

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!

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.

It seems the TARDIS has run into a little trouble by the looks of these set photos snapped by Colin Waymark. They’re images from filming that is taking place in Cardiff and they have Peter Capaldi wandering around a smaller than usual TARDIS. Why? We don’t know. How? We don’t know. All your questions will have to wait until new episodes air, and even then we’ll probably all be left with more questions than answers.

Peter Capaldi was asked to share one of his report cards, but instead he created a new one just for The Doctor. It was part of a fundraising effort for educationl charity Cecily’s Fund and will be auctioned on eBay on June 24th. Seems like Capaldi would make for a fair teacher even though he gave the doctor a D overall. He did at least give him an A+ in Dalek Fighting, so I don’t think The Doctor can complain.

Jake Dunsbridge does such a spot-on impersonation of Matt Smith’s Doctor that it feels like it should be an episode of the show. He’s got the voice, the mannerisms, and the facial expressions down perfectly. Matt Smith actually saw the video and according to this tweet, he was rather impressed.

The tweet came via Mark Gatiss’s account since Smith doesn’t have a twitter handle. He wasn’t the only one that was impressed as Dunsbridge has even received a few marriage proposals!

The Doctor in all his incarnations is capable of all sorts of amazing things and now he can add poetry to the list. Sure, maybe these aren’t the kinds of poems likely to win awards or even get a passing grade in your creative writing class, but the Doctors definitely deserve an “A” for effort. There’s one poem for every Doctor thanks to Tumblr user Herminbean, and each is a perfect little ode to the idiosyncrasies of its author.
