Dr. Geek, Ph.D.   |  

Peter Capaldi To Step Down After Next Season Of Doctor Who

Peter Capaldi revealed on Monday night that the coming season of Doctor Who will be his last as the Doctor.

Speaking to BBC Radio, he said to Jo Whatley that “I feel sad, I love Doctor Who, it is a fantastic program to work on, but I don’t know how long I can give it my best, and if I’m not giving it my best, I don’t want to do it.” As there is no final word on the schedule for the next season of Doctor Who, the exact date of his last episode is unknown. If it sticks to the traditions of the modern series however, the Doctor will regenerate either during or immediately before the 2017 Christmas episode.

John Hurt Doctor Who 50th anniversary

John Hurt, a legend of stage and screen for over 50 years who starred in films like Alien, Harry Potter, V for Vendetta, and Hellboy, and took part in the Doctor Who 50th anniversary special, died today, according to CNN. No cause of death was revealed, but that actor had been battling pancreatic cancer since 2015. He was 77.

Hurt was never shy of dying on screen, holding the record amongst thespians, the veteran with over 200 credits on IMDb had his character killed off an amazing 40+ times. The most famous and maybe greatest on screen death of all time came in Ridley Scott’s sci-fi horror classic Alien (1979) when the title creature burst from Hurt’s chest during breakfast to the shock and horror of the rest of the crew.

NYCC 2016: Photo Gallery: Cosplay, Panels, Convention Floor

NYC 2016 Cosplay

After a few years of going to SDCC and then due to work and tickets being almost impossible to get, took a few years off, this year I was lucky enough to get a 4-day pass to NYCC. So, I packed my bags and headed to New York. I took tons of photos at the Con of the convention floor, panels, and, of course, the cosplay. Check it out here below in the image galleries.

For the most part, my whole time at New York Comic-Con focused around Doctor Who and other BBC America shows. I got to see a panel with a decent Q&A with Matt Smith, Jenna Coleman, and Alex Kingston talking about their time on Doctor Who. I was also able to make it to The Theater at Madison Square Garden for the BBC America showcase, including a early screening of Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency, which I really enjoyed and will be watching once the season starts in a few weeks. I followed that with a Class and Doctor Who panels, giving us little teases of the upcoming series and the Christmas Special for Doctor Who, all about the super heroes.

Two Doctors, One Time Lord: Samantha Bee Brings Geeks To The Brexit
DwayneD   |  

Samantha Bee Brexit

So last week, as everyone in the world seems to know by now, Brexit happened. A portmanteaux of the words Britain and exit, the people of the United Kingdom voted to leave the economic zone of the European Union, or the EU. There are a lot of politics involved in Brexit, but frankly, we’re not so concerned with that.

What we are concerned with is awesome, geeky stuff. And to that end, on her show Full Frontal comedienne Samantha Bee managed to create an incredibly new geeky term, “British Twitter,” and coupled it with one of our favorite imports here at Geeks of Doom, Doctor Who. Not only that, she was able to incorporate not ONE, but TWO of the many faces portraying our favorite Time Lord.

The clip is just over two minutes and will probably make any and all U.S. fans of BBC America laugh — really hard. Try and keep the soda from streaming out of your nose.

‘Doctor Who’ Coming To Amazon Prime On March 27th
Dr. Geek, Ph.D.   |  

Doctor Who logo and TARDIS from the Netflix web site

It’s been a rough few months for Doctor Who fans in the United States who want to watch their favorite show. First, the news came in late January that only a single episode of new Who, the Christmas Special, would be broadcast in 2016 with Season 10 following in the spring of 2017. Then, both Hulu and Netflix announced a few days later that Doctor Who was disappearing from their respective rosters at the end of January. That left Doctor Who fans in the United States with no ability to stream the program legally. Doctor Who went dark for much of North America starting in early February.

The time of darkness is now over. Amazon announced today that it reached an agreement with the BBC to exclusively stream Doctor Who in the United States on Amazon Prime starting on Sunday, March 27th. Prime customers will be able to watch seasons one through eight and their associated holiday specials starting that day, with the ninth season being made available this fall. Presumably, Classic Doctor Who will appear sometime in the near future.
