If you’re an American, that headline is probably bound to elicit a confused face rather than the excitement it deserves. Allow me to explain!
Cast your mind back to last week, when we reported on the absolutely ridiculous (and very not true) rumor that Peter Capaldi could be replaced by his predecessor Matt Smith as The Doctor. Well, a week later, it’s still absolutely ridiculous and very not true, which has been confirmed by Matt Smith himself.
A few years ago, BBC Radio 4 produced a fantastic adaptation of Neverwhere, Neil Gaiman’s sprawling urban fantasy series (turned novel) about a mysterious world hidden below London. Now the Beeb is returning to London Below for a spinoff based on one of Gaiman’s own short stories set in the same universe.
The producers of Doctor Who have been rather open about the franchise’s need to push for a diverse cast recently, and it’s taking a big step forward this year with the young-adult spinoff Class, which writer Patrick Ness has revealed will have a gay lead character.
A Dalek standing in the foyer of the BBC’s broadcasting building in London was recently found to contain an interesting compound that could be used to solve an ongoing medical crisis.
Jenna Coleman seemingly left Doctor Who for good last year, as Clara Oswald ran off into time and space cheating death with Arya Stark—a high note for an otherwise uneven companion. But in the realm of time-travel, was this really the last we saw of Clara in the series? Maybe not, according to Peter Capaldi.
Turns out Banksy inspires more people than just hipsters and art snobs. Bridge Farm Primary, an elementary school in Bristol, England, recently named a school house after the infamously anonymous artist. And Banksy just returned the favor.
Well, okay, your value may vary—you might prefer more stories told in Torchwood’s second season, with the full team. But hey, at least Big Finish’s new audio dramas are bringing back Torchwood in the time of the excellent miniseries Children of Earth! Not a mention of Miracle Day in sight.
News reports this morning claim that the BBC is planning to delete over 11,000 online recipes. But the internet didn’t suddenly run out of room, so what gives?
Richard Adams’ beloved novel—and the infamously traumatizing 1978 animated adaptation—about a group of rabbits in search of a new home is getting an all-star re-imagining from Netflix and the BBC. In? Better roles for female characters. Out? Apparently, some of the novel’s shocking moments of brutality.
We’ve known for a little while that The Doctor’s next companion has been cast. Now, the BBC has officially revealed who it is: Pearl Mackie.
Approximately half of the content on the internet is cat videos, but the BBC managed to capture one that’s truly remarkable: high-speed footage of a wild Caracal as it deftly manages to spin itself around midair in order to land safely on its feet.
Since Class was announced last year, we’ve heard barely anything about the young adult series set in the universe of Doctor Who; today, the BBC revealed the main cast of the school-based series, as well as a few hints that make it sound a bit weirder and Doctor Who-ish that previously thought.
The BBC recently released a documentary called Super Powered Owls, which looks at how owls fly. Part of the program includes the story of Luna and Lily, two young Barns owls who are learning to fly for the first time.
Daleks. Giant killer wasps. Sentient fat babies. The Tenth Doctor and Donna Noble teamed up against some pretty awful bad guys during their time on Doctor Who, but a new novel will see them fight their most horrible foes yet: assholes on the internet.
Speaking to a Brazilian website, Doctor Who star Peter Capaldi noted that the BBC has cast a new companion for the Doctor, and we should know very soon who that is.
It’s not every day you get to hear about a TV star critizing their own broadcaster, but Peter Capaldi has lashed out at the BBC for not caring about Doctor Who enough—not in terms of its content, or promotion... but when the show airs in the UK.
There’s a lot of “whoa, what?” moments in this fast-paced Orphan Black trailer, and honestly, it’s a little confusing at times. But I’ll be damned if it’s not trippy as hell.
Ever since it was announced that season 10 of Doctor Who will be showrunner Steven Moffat’s last, doubts have been cast over the longevity of Peter Capaldi’s tenure as the titular Time Lord. Hell, those rumors have actually been swirling around for even longer than that. But apparently the BBC wants Capaldi around for…
It’s probably not a huge shock, but Maisie Williams killed dead the rumors that she would not become the Doctor’s latest companion, meaning we’ve seen the last of her series 9 character Ashildr—at least for now.
