Doctor Who Recaps/Reviews Feed

We're going a little stir-crazy waiting for season 12 of Doctor Who to arrive. Right now, a trailer would seem like an early Christmas present. Heck, even a new round of possibly-unfounded rumors would help pass the time. We haven't got anything to tell you about the show, but we just learned something new today: The 13 Doctor can sing! Jodie Whittaker is one of a number of celebrities (including other Clutter favorites like David Tennant and Olivia Colman) to appear on a new album for the BBC Children in Need charity. She covers "Yellow," by Coldplay. We like Whittaker,... Read more →

Christopher Eccleston thrilled Doctor Who fans around the world with his portrayal of the Ninth Doctor when the show returned to TV in 2005. He brought a new level of passion and charisma to the role of the Time Lord. Of course, his terrific work with Billie Piper, playing companion Rose Tyler, set the foundation of the new era. The one major problem with Eccleston's stint was that it only lasted one year. (Of course, he was followed by David Tennant, so everything worked out fine.) Now, Eccleston admits in his new autobiography, I Love the Bones of You, that... Read more →

Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? BDH, Little Buddha, and I were just talking about how we can't believe we're already halfway through September. I think what's throwing me off a little bit (in a good way) is that some of our flowers are still hanging in there. Everything about the garden was about a month later than usual this year. It looks like that means some plants will also stay around a little longer, which works for me. Anyway, we hope you're having a good weekend - now, let's check out today's news. The guys say the coffee... Read more →

Don't know about you, but the new season of Doctor Who is starting to feel like it will never arrive. Even if we get a Christmas or New Year's special first, that's still months away. What's a fan to do? Fortunately, there's a new Doctor Who graphic novel to check out: Doctor Who The Thirteenth Doctor Volume 2 just hit the stands, so at least we can read about the Doctor's latest adventures with Graham, Yaz, and Rian. This collection picks up a few weeks after Volume 1, where the Doctor and fam helped rescue a pair of scientists. #13... Read more →

I finally got my chance to meet former Doctor Who star Peter Capaldi at this year's Boston Comic Convention, and it was awesome! I haven't been to a comic convention in about 35 years, so this was a fascinating experience. There were all sorts of people in various costumes. Some of them went over my head, but those seemed to be anime characters. There were a number of Avengers, including an impressive Iron Man costume. Doctor Who was also represented, as there were a few people dressed as the 4th, 6th, 7th, 10th, 11th, 12th, and 13th Doctors. The most... Read more →

As is true for so many fans of the show, Tom Baker was our introduction to Doctor Who. The eccentric man with the booming voice, amazing curls, and trademark scarf provided the template for how we saw the Doctor. To some extent, everyone who came after has been measured against the 4th Doctor. We would sit mesmerized in front of the television for each of his adventures, and now some almost 40 years since he left the show, he's done it to us again. This time, wee were glued to the new book: Doctor Who: Scratchman. The story was originally... Read more →

We were just roaming around on the Internet, looking for any sign of a new story about the upcoming season of Doctor Who. Unfortunately, all's quiet at the moment, apart from a couple of early publicity shots. Our travels eventually lead us to an article about Lewis Capaldi, the 22 year-old Scottish singer-songwriter, who is some relation to the 12th Doctor himself, Peter Capaldi. (It sounds like they're third cousins twice removed, or something like that.) A few more clicks later, and we landed on this video for Lewis Capaldi's song, "Someone You Loved," which features his famous relative. Capaldi... Read more →

David Tennant marked the completion of his first podcast season with one final release. David Tennant Does a Podcast With...Everyone is a 40-minute collection of previously unheard outtakes from his conversations with different guests this year. That list includes Olivia Colman, Michael Sheen, James Corden, Catherine Tate, Jon Hamm, Gordon Brown, Samantha Bee, and Whoopi Goldberg. It's a quick bit of fun, as well as a sort of a "greatest hits" type episode which makes for a good series introduction for any Tennant fans who haven't heard the show before now. We admit that the former Doctor Who and Broadchurch... Read more →

We don't know a lot about comic conventions around here. We went to a handful of Doctor Who conventions in the early 1980's, but that's it. There have been a few Doctor Who stars who have appeared at shows in the region in recent years, but either we couldn't get it together to buy tickets in time, or they weren't people we needed to meet. However, that all changes this year. Come August, we're going to meet the 12th Doctor himself, Peter Capaldi! Peter Capaldi will be attending the 2019 Fan Expo Boston, and we've already got our tickets! In... Read more →

Hi everyone, Welcome back, and a happy Friday to you all! Any big plans for the weekend? I'm sure we'll extend BDH's birthday celebration for a few more days. He had a good day yesterday, and he wanted me to tell you how nice it was to hear from so many friends. That's really his most favorite part of his birthday, so thank you to everyone who made him smile even more than usual. Of course, we need to take a look at the headlines before we get back to the party. BDH and Little Buddha made some coffee (which... Read more →
