doctor who equal pay

The Doctor’s face may have changed, but the paycheck stays the same. Doctor Who star Jodie Whittaker is making history as the first female Time Lord, and she’s shattering more than the barriers of time and space. So now that she’s taking the TARDIS keys from Peter Capaldi, Whittaker is making sure she’s paid the same amount as her predecessor. Because aliens aren’t the only things worth battling.

doctor who peter capaldi

Nothing can keep this Doctor away from comforting his fans.

Peter Capaldi had an emotional exit from Doctor Who in this year’s Christmas special “Twice Upon a Time,” which saw the Twelfth Doctor regenerating into the Thirteenth Doctor played by Jodie Whittaker. It’s all a part of the history of Doctor Who, which has been replacing its stars since the long-running BBC science-fiction show first started airing in the 1960s. But for many young fans who began watching the series with Capaldi at its helm, it’s a fresh new loss.

doctor who twice upon a time trailer

The Doctor Who Christmas special is always a big-budget TV event and for the past two actors who have played the time-traveling alien, it has been when they have bid goodbye to the long-running TV show.

Peter Capaldi will uphold that tradition and say goodbye to the role of the Doctor in this year’s Christmas special, Doctor Who: Twice Upon a Time. But as he faces a future ahead of Doctor Who, he will run smack dab into the past. This is a time travel show after all, and you can’t have big event TV without inviting David Bradley to play the beloved crotchety First Doctor. And let me tell you, he does not dig those sonic sunglasses.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:

douglas adams doctor who episode

When Doctor Who premiered in 1963, the BBC probably didn’t anticipate it becoming a worldwide phenomenon and the longest-running science-fiction show in history. If they did, the network would have likely not purged their archives of Doctor Who episodes in the ’70s, resulting in many serials from the First and Second Doctor’s runs to become lost to oblivion.

By the time Tom Baker stepped into his iconic colorful scarf as the Fourth Doctor, this junking policy had been put to a stop. But that didn’t prevent his memorable run as the Doctor from being plagued by its own archiving or production problems. Namely, a famous unfinished 1979 episode written by sci-fi stalwart Douglas Adams of Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy fame, “Shada.” Adams would only write two other episodes for Doctor Who, but “Shada” was always the “what could’ve been?” after filming for the episode was interrupted by an engineering strike. But 38 years later, “Shada” will finally be finished, with none other than Tom Baker himself reprising his role as the most famous Doctor.

LEGO Dimensions Discontinued

It goes without saying that /Film is not a video game site. But whenever there’s news regarding video games with ties to our favorite movies and TV shows, we think it’s worth reporting.

Rocko's Modern Life - Comic-Con TV Trailers

We’re still recovering from the insanity that is San Diego Comic-Con. Because there are so many movies and TV shows that get promoted at the massive pop culture convention, we simply don’t have the time to report on each and every one of them by attending all the panels that unfolded. But we still wanted to highlight some of the big shows with new footage to show off for fans.

So we’ve rounded up a slew of new trailers for upcoming TV shows, both returning and new programs, ranging from revivals of Nicktoons like Rocko’s Modern Life and Hey Arnold! to freshman shows like The Orville and Future Man, returning shows like Once Upon a Time and Doctor Who, and plenty more Comic-Con TV trailers from the 2017 convention.
