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 →


Our unabashed fondness for David Tennant for is well-documented in this space. We loved in him Doctor Who of course, as well as Broadchurch, and many other performances. He's brilliant in every role, but there's also a sense of humor and warmth about the man which has long led us to believe we would be best friends if we ever met. (Don't bother trying to convince us otherwise, you're just wrong.) That kindness and openness now shine in his newest adventure, David Tennant Does a Podcast with..., which is just a delight. We were particularly interested in his conversation with... Read more →


Winter is not our favorite time of year around here. The first extended arctic blast just passed through our neighborhood, many of the sidewalks are icy because no one cleared them, and warm temperatures seem far away. However, all is not lost, because the BBC just tweeted a picture of the Doctor Who cast back at work on series 12! #DoctorWho is back in production! 🎬🎉 pic.twitter.com/vouZZfMuTV — Doctor Who Official (@bbcdoctorwho) January 23, 2019 As you can see, the four main characters are in the picture, and Chris Chibnall appears to still be in charge, so the big question...

Are you a Doctor Who fan who is wondering how to pass the time until the 13th Doctor returns in 2020? Are you a cranky old bugger who can't stop complaining about the modern era? Either way, we have terrific news for you. The BBC announced that classic Doctor Who episodes will be running on Twitch from January 5 - 25! To be clear we're talking about more than 500 episodes, and you can watch them for free! Brilliant! (See the schedule here.) Twitch ran a similar marathon last year which was great fun, and we expect the same from... Read more →


Happy New Year, Doctor Who fans! We can't think of a better way to start 2019 than with a new adventure that sees the Doctor face an old foe to end series 11. Is it a strong finale? Let's discuss. Warning: Spoilers ahead Observations: This entire story is set in motion because of a New Year's Eve kiss? Is this some kind of weird anti-sex campaign? "If you kiss someone, you might bring about the end of the world?" We know that eye. The BBC already spoiled the return of the villain, but we'd recognize that eye anywhere. Good lord,...

Hi everyone, As we all know, there's no Doctor Who Christmas Special this year. However, the BBC just released a cute little holiday clip that we wanted to pass along. We wish you all the happiest of holidays, and we'll see you back here again soon to discuss the New Year's Day Special, "Resolution!" (pic via bbc.co.uk) To get you in the festive spirit! 🎅🎄 #DoctorWho pic.twitter.com/kqZpesvq8m — Doctor Who Official (@bbcdoctorwho) December 18, 2018 Read more →


Our staff follows Doctor Who rumors throughout the year, but we don't put much stock in them until there's an official announcement, because hey, anyone can post anything on the Internet. For instance, the story of Jodie Whittaker leaving at the end of series 11 turned out to be complete hogwash. That's why we didn't pay much attention to people who claimed to know that series 12 won't air until 2020. However, the BBC just confirmed that this is true. We're trying not to overreact, but the current feeling here is that the rest of 2019 is shot after "Resolution"... Read more →


It's time for the final regular season adventure of series 11, as the Doctor and friends receive multiple distress calls from the same planet and arrive to find a familiar foe waiting for them. Is this a strong finale? Let's discuss... Warning: Spoilers ahead Observations: First off, we're glad to see it looks like we're going to close things out this year with another proper science fiction story. Now, let's see where it goes. The Doctor and crew land on a planet that emits psychotropic waves that mess with your mind in all sorts of ways, so they've got to... Read more →


There's been some silliness on the Internet recently (shocking, right?), as rumors were circulating that showrunner Chris Chibnall and star Jodie Whittaker would be leaving Doctor Who at the end of series 11. The story was no doubt some wishful thinking put out by a sad guy who's still irate that the Doctor is now "a girl." However, we can put the rumors to rest, because Jodie Whittaker confirmed that she'll be back for series 12. This is great news, as Whittaker has done a fantastic job making her mark as the 13th Doctor this year. The ratings reflect that,... Read more →


The Doctor and friends come across a girl who is scared of a monster and missing her dad. It's a set-up for a standard adventure, but then things go in an unexpected direction. Warning: Spoilers ahead Observations: Why is the Doctor having so much trouble controlling the TARDIS this season? Did something happen to our favorite blue box between the time #12 turned into #13, and the time when they were reunited in The Ghost Monument? The "Wooly Rebellion" doesn't sound like a good time. Honestly, there's a decent chance we would have tried to join the sheep. Cheers to... Read more →
