Doctor Who: Steven Moffat Teases Season, New Companion and Begins The Long Goodbye!

The man behind the last several season of Doctor Who is hanging up his sonic screwdriver – not that he’ll be less busy, with another franchise (Sherlock) to take up with if he can find the time.

As his time on Doctor Who comes to a close, Moffat gets to introsuce a new companion and bring back one of The Doctor’s earliest and most deadly classic foes – the Mondrasian Cybermen.

In the following interview, Moffat reflects on his time on the show; talks about what made Pearl Mackie perfect for Bill, and how much fun it’s been working with Peter Capaldi,.

Doctor Who returns to BBC America on Saturday, April 15th (9/8C).

Doctor Who: The Return of Dr. Mysterio – Great Premise Well Executed!

Doctor Who: The Return of Dr. Mysterio was a first in the long history of Doctor Who – it tapped into the global appreciation of superhero comics and movies by introducing one into the Whovian mythos for the 2016 Doctor Who Christmas Special.

The combination of Time Lord and superhero worked– it holds up to repeat viewing extremely well. It’s just a shame that, as usual, there is a paucity of bonus features on the home video release (in stores this week).

The Doctor and the Superhero Soar Onto Home Video!

Moffat, creator of the Weeping Angels, introduced the Eleventh and Twelfth Doctors and a number of iconic companions and monsters including Amy Pond, Clara Oswald, Rory Pond, River Song and Missy.

Chibnall is probably best known for Broadchurch and the original (and brilliant!) Life on Mars. For comments from all involved, follow the jump.

Spiffy Whovian Gift Box: Doctor Who: The Christmas Specials!

who-xmas-dvd-set

As hard as it is to believe, there was a time when the only Doctor Who Christmas Special was in the form of Doctor Who Annuals – a hardcovered publication that contained games, puzzles, background stoires featuring the Doctor’s greatest foes and, of course a new Doctor Who story (which wasn’t usually set at Christmas).

So along comes Russell T. Davies with the mad idea of doing a Christmas Special for Doctor Who every year. Continue reading Spiffy Whovian Gift Box: Doctor Who: The Christmas Specials!
