It’s Friday night and the mood is right. Time to have some fun, show you how it’s done, TDIF. That’s right, it’s “Thank (the) Doctor It’s Friday,” as we say “Brilliant!” to another week with Jodie Whittaker as the Thirteenth Doctor. Let’s celebrate everything Doctor Who the best way we know how—with a Friday gif party.
Back in 2015, a single image convinced me I would never watch Doctor Who. An older man running away from a giant explosion, pulling along a much-younger woman gazing at him in pure adulation. It exemplified everything that frustrated me about gender representation in film and TV. I’ve since learned the ways of the …
That’s not a picture of Jodie Whittaker, Doctor Who’s new star, up there. Seriously. It’s a wax recreation so good that even the Nestene Consciousness itself would be a bit jealous of the handiwork behind it.
Much of Steven Moffat’s era of Doctor Who was dedicated to solving the mystery of the Doctor—why the name, where’s Gallifrey—and putting answers to that central conceit of who the Doctor is, and what they stand for. Jodie Whittaker’s first trip to an alien world gave us some of that mystery back, for the show and for…
Season 11 of Doctor Who has brought with it a lot of changes. Not only is this the first season with a female Doctor, played by Jodie Whittaker, but we’ve also got a new showrunner in Chris Chibnall. We spoke with him and executive producer Matt Strevens about how they’re approaching the new season and what they’re…
The Thirteenth Doctor ascendant. And toyetic.
You wouldn’t happen to know one, would you?
New Doctor. New friends. New TARDIS. New worlds. And apparently, new monsters and new monsters only.
Good thing that’s just what the Doctor loves doing, isn’t it?
We’re not talking about a new alien world or some gorgeous future cityscape. We’re not even talking about an iconic moment from the past. No, we’re talking about something far more exciting than all of those things. We’re talking about Sheffield.
You see it. You see what they did there. They know you saw.
When the Thirteenth Doctor’s rainbow-accented costume was first revealed, I was admittedly a little reticent. I didn’t dislike it, per se, but there was a quirkiness to it which made it stand out much more than the typical aesthetics of Doctor Who’s modern Time Lord couture. But the more and more we see of season 11,…
The casting of Jodie Whittaker as the Thirteenth Doctor was of the utmost secrecy for the BBC, but a few former Time Lords got to learn the identity of the new Doctor a little earlier than the rest of us. Some guessed it accidentally, but others like Tenth Doctor David Tennant got a very sneaky surprise.
The Doctor herself is attending the 2018 San Diego Comic-Con, and she’s doing so much more than just giving us a spectacular first look at the next season of Doctor Who. She’s doing that and making it fashionable, in the most delightful way.
