the doctor

Capture

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!

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.
