Doctor Who: The Time Lord Letters
Hardcover | Kindle
by Justin Richards
Harper Design | HarperCollins Publishers
Release date: September 29, 2015

Ahhh, what would it mean to know the mind of a Time Lord? It must be something to know what a Time Lord saw. There must be wit! There must be wisdom! There must be an ambivalence, a humor about the mundane moments. There must be perspective that comes from the understanding of time and history as a sometimes malleable thing. So, we are presented with a book called Doctor Who: The Time Lord Letters. What does it tell us?

In the end, it doesn’t tell us much. It tries to create a narrative of Doctor Who history that is approachable for younger television viewers. The actual history of the show is far more complex than that, due to reasons that have little to do with good storytelling. The full-color hardcover title does little to weave together all the historical threads of the Doctor’s lives. Instead, the book’s best appeal is to provide both older and younger viewers with an excellent photo collage of the entire history of Doctor Who. That, I think, is what will keep readers coming back to this book.

Elijah Wood in Air New Zealand Safety Video

Air New Zealand has created what they have dubbed “The Most Epic Safety Video Ever Made,” and it would not be easy to argue otherwise.

The safety video is inspired by the world of Middle-earth and the Hobbit and Lord of the Rings trilogies that are set there. It features cast and crew from those movies, such as star Elijah Wood, director Sir Peter Jackson, actor Dean O’Gorman (Fili), actor Sylvester McCoy (Radagast), and Weta co-founder and five-time Oscar-winning special effects, makeup, and costume design wiz Sir Richard Taylor.

Doctor Who The Five(ish) Doctors Reboot Colin Baker, Sylvester McCoy, Peter Davison

There was a lot of speculation leading up to the Doctor Who 50th anniversary special, The Day of the Doctor, as to which of the former Doctors would appear in it. As it turns out, some of the actors who’ve played the Doctor throughout its 50-year history were wondering the same thing.

Former Doctor Peter Davison put together something special for the occasion, writing and directing a short, The Five(ish) Doctors Reboot, which he stars in with other former Doctors Sylvester McCoy and Colin Baker in a quest for the actors to be included in the 50th anniversary special.

Here below, watch the very cool, humorous 31-minute short, which stars several other famous faces, including some big ones from outside the Who universe.

Doctor Who: Prisoners of Time #7Doctor Who: Prisoners of Time #7
Written by Scott & David Tipton
Art by Kev Hopgood and Charlie Kirchoff
Covers by Francesco Francavilla, Charlie Kirchoff, Dave Sim
IDW Publishing
Release Date: July 31, 2013
Cover Price: $3.99

Doctor Who: Prisoners of Time now turns to concentrate on the final Doctor from the Classic era, originally played by Sylvester McCoy, representing the Gallifreyan’s seventh incarnation. With a breath of fresh air, Scott and David Tipton step back from the continuing overarching plot, allowing this single adventure in which the Doctor faces off against the Master to have more space.

Across the vast expanse of space and time, an unnamed foe is reaching out into multiple points of the Doctor’s timeline and abducting his companions. Meanwhile, the Seventh Doctor, along with awesome companion Ace, arrives in Scotland in 1830, discovering a strange plot involving an aristocratic family and their manor.

The Doctor Who TARDISblend 37: Night Terrors

Doctor Who

Series Six of Doctor Who continues, and begins with the Doctor receiving a mysterious message via the Psychic Paper asking to be “saved from the monsters.” Along with companions Amy Pond (Karen Gillan) and Rory Williams (Arthur Darvill), the trio trace the message to a multi-story set of flats in a council estate area of England, where they find the young boy who sent the plea of his fears across the cosmos: George (Jamie Oram).

But as the Doctor begins investigating the strange case of George, Amy, and Rory disappear and find themselves in a mysterious wooden Victorian home being chased by creepy “life-size” wooden dolls with malicious intents. The deeper the trio delve into the confusion, the more they discover the horrible truth: George’s monsters are real. But where are they coming from?

During TARDISblend 36, we review the events of Night Terrors, a return to form for writer Mark Gatiss. Within the episode itself, we look especially closely at Smith’s flawless performance as The Doctor, evoking elements of previous Doctors, in a manner that made it his own, looking upon the galaxy with the old eyes of a Time Lord.

Dragon*Con 2011 Video: ‘Doctor Who’ Actor Sylvester McCoy Reveals Origins Of His Name

Geeks of Doom Invades: Dragon*Con 2011

Sylvester McCoy, the seventh actor to portray The Doctor on classic British TV show Doctor Who, revealed yesterday the melodic and humorous origins of his name during his first panel (ever) at this year’s Dragon*Con.

As McCoy explains in the video, which you can watch here below, “Sylvester” actually started out as “Sylvest.” It was coined from a song that he graciously performed for the crowd.

His surname came from “a bad joke.” And don’t get me wrong, if I typed said joke out in this post or retold it to you in person, it would most certainly be a bad joke. However, when McCoy tells it, it’s brilliant.

Anyone who doubts his abilities as a valuable part of the Doctor Who cannon would do well to watch the video below.

Geeks of Doom Invades: Dragon*Con 2011

Sylvester McCoySylvester McCoy, the seventh actor to portray The Doctor on classic British TV show Doctor Who, made his first appearance at Dragon*Con today.

Not only did McCoy reveal the humorous origins of his name, but the actor also read a scene from recent Doctor Who episode The Pandorica Opens, which was originally performed by Matt Smith.

Why would McCoy do such a thing?

Partially, I think it’s because he is very fan friendly. The reading was done at the request of the panel moderator, who wanted to dispel the notion that McCoy was a bad doctor by giving him some decently written dialogue.
