Peter Capaldi Makes The Doctor

Series 8 is officially wrapped and the fandom has chimed in: Peter Capaldi is the best Doctor of New Who. Maybe the best New Who is a little presumptuous. Depending on your source, the best New Who often times is given to David Tennant, and with good reason. All you have to do is watch Series 1-4 1/2 and you can see why. Russell T. Davies did an excellent job rebooting the series with Christopher Eccelston, but it can’t be denied that David Tennant brought…

Moffat Is Already Making Us Cringe For Doctor Who

Does Steven Moffat go to bed grinning as he falls asleep, or is he afraid to blink? Not because of Angels, but because of Whovians? If you haven’t read Entertainment Weekly’s First Look article about the upcoming release of Doctor Who, take a moment to check it out, and then come back to us and let’s process these feelings. If you just read the article, that second-to-last sentence is probably resounding with you: Both the 50th-anniversary special and the Christmas episode left some fans a…

Doctor Who Season 8

Doctor Who is Back August 23rd!

Our favorite Doctor is back for Doctor Who Series 8 with his new look and–from the looks of it–a new Tardis on Saturday August 23rd!

Who’s excited?! The first episode of the new Doctor Who Season 8 is titled ‘Deep Breath.’

What do you think of this new trailer? It’s looking like we can expect the pilot to involve some damage to the Tardis, a dark welcome to this new reincarnation, and a panicked Clara. BBC One announced on their Facebook page that Doctor Who is premiering August 23rd, and E!Online announced it will premier in the States on August 23rd at 8pm on BBC America.

Check out the image BBC released on their Facebook page:

Doctor Who Season 8

Rejoice, fellow Whovians, the time of the premier countdown is here!

Youtube Rec: That Awkward Moment When…

The Fan-Made Doctor Who Trailer for Series 8 is better than the Official Trailer for Series 8. From the same John Smith who brought us that infamous “WhoLock” Trailer, comes a teaser for new “Doctor Who” which supersedes, by far, that measly 15-second trailer from two weeks ago via the BBC. Already at almost 400,000 views on youtube, there’s a good chance you’ve already seen this one…either way, we’re making sure that you do. Because this is one fan trailer you don’t want to miss. “Doctor…

Breaking: Doctor Who Returns This August!

No specific dates yet, unfortunately, BUT there’s a Doctor Who Series 8 trailer to ease the wait!

Okay, so it’s only 15 seconds…but at this point, it’s better than nothing. Series 8 marks the first season for lifelong Whovian Peter Capaldi, who took over Matt Smith’s role in the 2013 Christmas special. Based on his boyish excitement over the role and his previous roles, it’s safe to assume — Capaldi is going to hit it out of the park this fall.

New Writer Credits for Season 8 of Doctor Who!

No, it’s not a Doctor Who trailer — or even an air date, but at least we know who else is crafting Peter Capaldi’s narrative this season. Digital Spy broke the news earlier today, April 30th, that BBC veteran writers, Peter Harness and Jamie Mathieson will draft episodes for the eighth series of new Who. Starring Peter Capaldi as the twelfth doctor (/1st doctor of a new lifecycle?), we’ve all been dying to know what’s in store in the upcoming season. Steven Moffatt has dropped hints here…

Next Season on Doctor Who: Peter Capaldi Meets Jane Austen

In a recent Q&A in Brazil, Eternal Troll Mark Gatiss teased fans that writers may feature another famous British novelist on Doctor Who. Since the revival of Doctor Who in 2005, writers have introduced our favorite time traveling alien to Agatha Christie, Winston Churchill, William Shakespeare, Charles Dickens and two English Queens. Sorry, better make that three english queens: It’s been a fun and creative ploy, typically these episodes go over rather well with audiences.  Who didn’t love watching Queen Victoria facing down an errant werewolf?…

Need More X-Files? Just Check Out Neverwhere

It might not be FBI agents chasing aliens, but it does have a young Peter Capaldi. I call that a fair trade. Neil Gaiman, the creator of the incredible and underrated movie Stardust, wrote the screenplay for the BBC miniseries Neverwhere which some of the writers of Larkable watched recently. As fans of both Stardust and the 90’s hit sci-fi show X-Files, Neverwhere was right up our alley. If you can get through 10 minutes of the first episode, you’ll be hooked. Granted, it took…

Peter Capaldi for Only 1 Season? What?!

Can it be? Is this true? Rumor has it Peter Capaldi is going to be a one season pony?! Now, this might all be hearsay. We shouldn’t jump the gun. But Zap2It released that this might just be the case. “Capaldi is rumored to be a one-season doctor, in order to steer the show in a new direction.” That’s right, I’m shaking my fist and yelling twice! What the hell, man? You can’t just jerk around our emotions like this! Just last week I had…

Feels Alert: This Interaction Between Peter Capaldi and One Small Fan Is Going to Hit You

When Matt Smith’s departure from “Doctor Who,” several fans were disappointed. Maybe none were as concerned as one specific little girl, watch Peter Capaldi reassure this tiny fan: For those of you who couldn’t quite understand that, don’t worry: the internet has already created a gifset for you. Was that girl in a dalek costume? Why, yes. Yes, she was, (as if this exchange wasn’t cute enough already).Curious about the backstory? Buzzfeed published a statement from a family member of the girl: “Hiya, the little…

A “Doctor Who” News Roundup: Whoniverse Con Canceled, Matt Smith Loves Kids, Peter Capaldi Surprises Fans and More!

Just a week after Karen Gillan was forced to withdraw from the Australian Whoniverse Con, Matt Smith sent his regards that he wouldn’t be able to attend either. Hub Productions posted on their website this morning that, in order to be able to give fans the best possible experience they found it best to cancel the event given that no other modern Doctors were available to appear either. This is fairly out of character for Smith, who regularly appears at fan events and conventions. The…
