The Doctor Who TARDISblend

For the first time in a long time, we will not be getting a Doctor Who Christmas Special. Instead, this year we will be getting a New Year’s special. So in the absence of a much-missed Doctor Who tradition, we look into some of the great Christmas Specials from years gone by…

Doctor Who 10.3 Thin Ice Peter Capaldi Pearl Mackie

Doctor Who
Season 10, Episode 3 “Thin Ice”
Directed by Bill Anderson
Written by Sarah Dollard
Starring Peter Capaldi, Pearl Mackie, Matt Lucas, Nicholas Burns, Asiatu Koroma, Peter Singh
BBC America
Air date: April 29, 2017

This week, Doctor Who Episode 10.3 brings us a veritable melange of different topics. We get some costume drama. There is also some criticism of the class structure of British society. There is even some [gasp!] confrontation of race issues. Yet somehow, we also get to have a good deal of fun. The show feels quite sure of itself and is willing to take a few risks (albeit small ones). Those gambits largely pay off and take the Doctor and Pearl to a few places the show rarely goes. It’s thin ice, in more than one sense.

Publication Date: April 1, 2015
Cover Price: $3.99

Being a Whovian that is also the co-host of Geeks Of Doom’s TARDISblend podcast, I’m a little picky and particular about my Doctor Who stuff. But I can say, without a doubt, that Titan Comics’ opening salvo for their Doctor Who: Ninth Doctor comic book series is a good shot.

First up, you have the Christopher Eccleston Doctor, in all his grumpy glory, with his adorable companion Rose Tyler who is still softening up his hardened Time War scars.

However, what makes this book special is Captain Jack.

Doctor Who Christopher Eccleston

On Tuesday, August 13, 2013, BBC Home Entertainment will release Doctor Who: The Green Death (Story 69) Special Edition, which is a 2-disc DVD containing the digitally remastered version of the 6-part Doctor Who series The Green Death, along with bonus features, including some that are new to this edition.

One of the new bonus features is “The Unquiet Dead,” a 23-minute featurette that concludes the 5-part “Doctor Forever” documentary, which takes a look at the “wilderness years” of Doctor Who during its off-air years (1989-2005). The Who fan site Blogtor Who picked out an interesting tidbit in this bonus feature regarding Christopher Eccleston, who played the ninth doctor when the series relaunched in 2005: the actor’s voice almost didn’t make it onto the Canadian broadcasts!

Doctor Who 50th Anniversary To Be In 3D, Christmas Special Confirmed

Doctor Who showrunner, Steven Moffat, recently sat down with Ed Stradling for an interview recorded for the Gallifrey 2013 convention in Los Angeles. During the interview, Moffat answers many questions Whovians have about the current series, the 50th anniversary, Series 8, and much more.

When questioned for clarification on the plans for the 50th anniversary special, Steven Moffat says “Don’t believe the nonsense about ONE 60 minute special for the anniversary.” He didn’t elaborate from that, but did make clear that there is a A LOT planned for the anniversary, and hinted that more details would be coming soon.

Also of interest is that Moffat verified that the anniversary special will be in 3D. While he explained how busy everyone is on the technical side of making this a reality, but did not elaborate on how this is going to be delivered to the viewers. Will it be released as a 3D Blu-ray, or will we see some form of theatrical release? No hints on those answers at this point.

Some other elements that Moffat emphasizes…

Netflix Review: The End Of Time

Countdown To Doctor Who: Netflix Review: The End Of TimeDoctor Who: The End Of Time
Netflix Streaming
DVD | Blu-ray
Directed by Euros Lyn
Produced and Written by Russell T. Davies
Starring David Tennant, Matt Smith, Bernard Cribbins, John Simm, Timothy Dalton, Billie Piper, John Barrowman, Elisabeth Sladen, Lawry Lewin, Sinead Keenan
BBC Worldwide
Originally Broadcast: December 25, 2009

It’s not long too go now for the Doctor Who fans that have been waiting very patiently for the beginning of Series 7, featuring Matt Smith reprising his role as the Doctor. So, with the impending premiere about to explode with Daleks and timey-wimey stuffs, I thought it would be an appropriate selection for our Netflix Review this week to take a glance at one of the streaming features containing our favorite Time Lord: The End Of Time.

The End Of Time, fundamentally, is the bookend closing point for the Russell T. Davies and David Tennant era of the series. Matt Smith makes his first appearance at the end, with an iconic and memorable regeneration scene, but the key rationale for this adventure – an episode in two parts – is to bring many of the Davies storyline threads to a close, just before handing over to then-new producer Steven Moffat.

10 Episodes For New Fans To Check Out

Series 7 of Doctor Who is only days away, but as the fame of the show increases here in the United States (and elsewhere in the world, too!), I’m increasingly coming across new fans who have either just discovered the show, or are curious in checking it out.

Doctor Who might have originated in 1963, but for a while it was absent from the television screen. In 2005, Russell T. Davies spearheaded the return of Doctor Who, with Christopher Eccleston playing the Ninth Doctor.

Although there is some continuity, the coolest thing about Doctor Who is that you don’t necessarily have to cling to it and follow it from first episode to last. I’m paraphrasing Neil Gaiman here, but you can pretty much take a seat to watch any episode and enjoy it as a standalone adventure – essentially, it’s the story of a time traveler, who spins through space and time in a big blue box.

He materializes in places where something is screwy and wicked, but manages to fix everything and save the universe in the most eccentric and/or ridiculous, yet clever, manner imaginable.

So, are you new to Who? If so, check out a few of our recommended episodes below.

Netflix Review: Doctor Who – The Waters Of MarsDoctor Who: The Waters Of Mars
Netflix Streaming
DVD | Blu-ray
Directed by Graeme Harper
Produced by Russell T. Davies
Starring David Tennant, Lindsay Duncan, Peter O’Brien, Aleksander Mikic
BBC Worldwide
Originally Broadcast: November 15, 2009

With the landing of Curiosity on Mars by NASA during this previous week, and the impending premiere of the next Doctor Who series this month, today’s Netflix Review was an easy choice. The Waters Of Mars is a crowning achievement from the Russell T. Davies and David Tennant epoch of Doctor Who, exploring a darker side of the Time Lord from Gallifrey previously unexplored, while he pops by the Red Planet for a bit a visit.

Set in 2059, the Doctor materializes his TARDIS on Mars with the goal of a bit of wandering and a bit of fun. Companionless since Donna Noble departed, he is essentially running from both responsibility and prophecy, the Doctor comes across the first Earth colony on the Red Planet, named Bowie Base One. Knowing that the base is destined for disaster, the Doctor finds himself in a crucial tipping point – should he interfere with a fixed point in time?

Why A ‘Doctor Who’ Spin-Off Won’t Happen

Not Sure   |

Doctor Who Spin-Off

Whether you like or inexplicably loathe Russell T. Davies, you have to admit that the man expanded the world of Doctor Who, working to fill it with a roster of unforgettable side characters like Rose, Jackie Tyler, River Song, The Doctor Donna, Wilfred Mott, Mickey, Martha Jones, and Captain Jack. Davies didn’t just let these characters roam though, he serviced them and made us care and even long for their return appearances.

Doctor Who, in the time of Steven Moffat, has not similarly excelled in this area. Oh sure, the love story of Rory and Amy will be written in the stars and spoken about for the whole of time (or something), and Moffat has more fully realized (for better or worse) River Song, his creation, but they don’t seem right for a spin-off and for the most part we only get snippets of other, smaller characters who we would love to get to know more.

It’s being reported that David Yates and the BBC are set to develop a Doctor Who movie with hopes of turning the property into one of the next big franchises.

Yates is working with BBC Worldwide executive vice president of programming and production Jane Tranter, and potential writers are being looked at right now. Yates says that they’re not rushing the project, and that two to three years will be taken to make sure they get things right, explaining that it will require “quite a radical transformation to take it into the bigger arena.”
