the doctor


The Doctor has his first breakout single, or at least Kat Robichaud does with Somebody Call The Doctor. She’s clearly a big fan with the video featuring all sorts of nods to The Doctor’s various incarnations. Even the lyrics are full of references that only fans will understand. It’s a bit of timey wimey musical fun.

We’ve known that a female Doctor was a possibility ever since Matt Smith’s Doctor checked to see if he was a woman when he first regenerated, but it seems like Moffat is laying the groundwork to actually make it happen. Even better, he mentioned the need for one telling SFX:

“There easily could be a female Doctor. I think the next time might be a female Doctor. I don’t see why not. I think it’s good to do that.”

This seems to go along with what we saw in season 8 of the series. Not only did Clara impersonate the Doctor, but the Master became Missy. It might have surprised some fans, but it did not surprise the Doctor at all. Moffat told Wales Online:

“He doesn’t seem to register the fact that his old friend is now a woman. So obviously, he doesn’t think it’s a remarkable thing to happen.”

Although Moffat talked about a female Doctor as a real possibility, he chose not to speculate on the issue too much since Capaldi has only just taken on the role (and he’s really good in it). Still, for those hoping a female Doctor was in the cards, it’s looking more and more like the answer is yes.

You never know when you’re going to discover another nerd in your daily travels. Case in point: this note was left by a mechanic who worked on thetraciwho‘s car. Apparently, her car is adorned with all sorts of Doctor Who stuff, and the mechanic noticed. Clearly, he too is a Whovian which gave rise to the most brilliant customer note any mechanic has ever left ever.

The look of the Cybermen continues to evolve, but the writers behind Doctor Who still can’t find a way to make them truly terrifying. This concept art would help—it shows them with a much creepier look that, in some cases, emphasizes their former existence as humans.

As we revealed over the weekend, LEGO is set to produce a Big Bang Theory set. Unfortunately, two of the sets that it was up against for approval were Doctor Who-themed. Don’t worry though! If you watched the announcement video through to the end  you would have learned those two sets aren’t dead yet. Lego Ideas team member Peter Espersen notes:

This review period featured two Doctor Who concepts, and the LEGO Review Board is evaluating them. We’ll let you know when we decide whether or not one will be produced as a LEGO set.

Yes! This seems to indicate that the licensing issues over Doctor Who have been worked out and that the Lego people are just trying to decide which set they should produce. Their current choices are a set called Doctor Who by GlenBricker or a set called Doctor Who and Companions by AndrewClark2, both of which look great. They should just make it easy on themselves and build both because you know every Whovian out there would be more than happy to own two sets.

Peter Capaldi has made no secret of the fact that he has always been a huge fan of Doctor Who. He once wrote the BBC requesting that he be made president of the fan club and even had some of his fan art appear in Doctor Who International Fan Club Magazine. Watch as poor Capaldi squirms in his seat on The Graham Norton Show when his fan boy past comes back to haunt him. Of course, he has nothing to worry about—this is one of the many reasons why we love him as the Doctor.

You’ll have nothing but sweet dreams about The Doctor with your very own TARDIS headboard. It’s primarily built out of wood with the addition of dry erase boards for the windows and some vinyl letters. And this is even bigger on the inside, as the doors actually open to display a series of shelves for storing your books, a sonic screwdriver, and maybe even a fez.

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!
