Doctor Who disappointed a few fans last year with news that the longrunning BBC sci-fi would sit out Comic-Con for a world press tour introducing Peter Capaldi’s new iteration to the world, but with Season 9 on the horizon, Doctor Who is coming right back where he belongs. Get your first hint of what to expect when The Doctor graces San Diego once more this summer!
Well hello there, TV super-fan! Did you know that Breaking Bad breakout Jesse Pinkman was almost killed off in Season 1? How about that Joss Whedon hated the original Buffy theme song, or Curb Your Enthusiasm served as a murder alibi? Can you imagine LOST starring Michael Keaton? Why yes, we do have more where that came from!
Game of Thrones Season 5 will rule all our lives in less than two weeks’ time, but fan-favorite star Maisie Williams is already looking beyond Westeros for her next gig. The erstwhile Arya Stark will sheathe her sword for a Doctor Who Season 9 guest role, but should fans of either series be worried?
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them was already going to make all of the money in the world before it set its sights on a leading man with an absurdly passionate fanbase. But now that J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter spin-off is supposedly eyeing former Doctor Who star Matt Smith to play magical animal expert Newt Scamander, this thing is going to be required viewing for everyone with even a single geeky bone in his or her body.
Doctor Who's 2015 Christmas Special did well to tide us over after the Season 8 finale, but Season 9 seems an eternity away for our 12th Time Lord's return. Bridge the gap with our first details and taste of the two-part Season 9 premiere, which confirms a certain Master-full woman will return to menace Peter Capaldi once more!
Marvel’s ‘Daredevil’ has yet to release a frame of footage from its forthcoming Netflix TV series, but that hasn’t stopped followup series ‘AKA Jessica Jones’ from pushing forward. Not only do we know ‘Who’ the major villain of the Krysten Ritter super-detective drama will be, but David Tennant himself will portray the mysterious purple baddie.
Earlier this week, in our column detailing the titles expiring on Netflix Instant in January, many of you were probably disappointed to discover that most of your favorite BBC shows (and some you maybe didn’t know about) were leaving the streaming service at the end of this month. But you can all rest easy now, as Netflix has revealed that their deal with the BBC will remain firmly in place, and shows like ‘Doctor Who’ and ‘Luther’ aren’t going anywhere anytime soon.
Excited though we are for ‘Doctor Who’ to send off 2014 with its annual Christmas special, this year’s featuring Nick Frost as a sinister-seeming Santa, we can’t shake trepidation over recent rumors that “Last Christmas” would prove the…well, last for Jenna-Louise Coleman’s Clara. Now, the BBC has stepped in to address the departure, while another rumor suggest Clara will be around a bit longer.
‘Doctor Who’ must seemingly always contend with rumors of its current cast departing, and though Peter Capaldi has been confirmed at least for a second year as the regenerating Time Lord, less certain is the fate of Jenna Coleman’s Clara. Certainly not helping matters is the official title for the 2014 Christmas special, which along with a new poster, teases that someone will be having their “Last Christmas!”
Though not even yet Thanksgiving, ‘Doctor Who’ already has us in the Christmas spirit with the season 8 finale tease of Nick Frost’s take on jolly old St. Nick, er…Father Christmas, Santa, what-have-you. In any case, why wait until the big day when we have our first sneak peek of the 2014 Christmas special, featuring Clara and the Doctor facing off with Santa Claus himself!
