Doctor Who Recaps/Reviews Feed

The latest Doctor Who trailer has a message. It is not subtle in the least, as the female Doctor shatters a glass ceiling, and the unapologetic attitude is awesome. The visuals are also tremendous, which has been a consistent trend in all of the promos so far. We can't wait for the adventures to begin on October 7! It's about time. (pic via Read more →

Mark your calendars, ladies and gentlemen: After all of the waiting, we have the official premiere date for the 13th Doctor! The BBC announced that series 11 will debut on Sunday, October 7. That's right, Doctor Who is launching its new era on a new night for the first time in the show's history. (We're still waiting to hear about the specific air time.) The first episode is called, "The Woman Who Fell to Earth," and it was written by new showrunner Chris Chibnall. We can't wait for the return of our favorite Time Lord and the greatest blue box...

We were scanning the Internet for the latest gossip about the upcoming Series 11 of Doctor Who, when we discovered that 11th Doctor Matt Smith has signed on for Star Wars: Episode IX! Good for him. Smith clearly expected his role in Terminator: Genisys in 2015 would be his big break as a movie star, but that film didn't do nearly as well as expected at the box office, and the franchise was put on hold. His portrayal of Prince Philip in The Crown was well-received (earning Smith his first-ever Emmy nomination), but now that he and co-star Claire Foy... Read more →

Our heart(s) skipped a beat when we read a new interview where acclaimed science fiction/fantasy writer Neil Gaiman said he'd like to write another Doctor Who adventure. Gaiman's 2011 story, The Doctor's Wife, remains one of our favorite stories of the modern era. Actually, it's one of the best tales we've ever watched on TV. Gaiman also wrote the Sandman series, Good Omens, and American Gods, which means he's responsible for several of our all-time most favorite books, so would we like to see him write something for the 13 Doctor? Of course! A Neil Gaiman return to Doctor Who... Read more →

The 13th Doctor is Getting Closer!

We continue to count the days until the 13th Doctor makes her debut this fall. The big day is one step closer now that BBC has revealed that principal photography is finished for Season 11: The Clutter staff loves summer, and we're in no rush for the season to end, but the excitement continues to grow, knowing that our favorite Time Lord will be starting new adventures soon!

As excitement continues to build about the debut of the 13th Doctor this fall, BBC America took Doctor Who fans on a trip to the past by airing, Shada, the long-"lost" adventure from the 1970-1980 season. The story features the Doctor and Romana visiting the eccentric Professor Chronotis, who is much more than he appears to be at first glance. Professor Chronotis is somehow tied to the forgotten Time Lord prison called "Shada," and it appears he needs the Doctor's help. Shada was written by Douglas Adams, who also the terrific Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy series. Filming was halted... Read more →

The Doctor is coming! First we had the quick teaser clip, and now the BBC has released the first proper trailer for Jodie Whittaker's debut as the 13th Doctor. What a great time to be a Doctor Who fan! Let's take a look and see what we've got here: A 40-second trailer can certainly be misleading, but the obvious theme for this year is, "Everything is new here, so come join us." Besides that, our sense is that this reset is going to include the addition of more humor back into the show. We loved Peter Capaldi's Doctor, especially in... Read more →

Hello, Doctor Who fans! After what seems like an eternity, the first official clip of the 13th Doctor is finally here! It was starting to feel like this day was never going to arrive. (Where's a TARDIS when you need one?) Let's not waste another minute. Check this out: Now that's a proper teaser! The whole thing looks gorgeous. Obviously we've got the introductions to the new companions, and a quick glimpse of #13, who seems to be ready for whatever the universe has in store for her. Now, a few quick questions: Are the various items shaking because the... Read more →

Croatia takes on France in the World Cup Final on Sunday, but the big news is that the BBC will be showing the first official preview of the 13th Doctor at some point during the match! You couldn't ask for better news on a Friday the 13th. No details have been given about the clip, but we're hoping it's a cleaned-up version of the scene that was leaked a few weeks ago. We loved the energy of Jodie Whittaker's performance as the Doctor continued to recover from her regeneration. It can only be better with proper audio and video! This... Read more →

We are starting to crawl up the walls in Clutter Headquarters at the moment, and it's not just because a heat wave started today. It's now been more than six months since the 12th Doctor regenerated, and we're getting antsy waiting for #13 to start her adventures! There's still some time to go before series 11 begins, but now there's exciting news that the 13th Doctor will meet all of her former selves in a new Titan Comics special edition that comes out in September! (Click on the link to see some of the artwork.) We just added, "making sure... Read more →
