Doctor Who

There’s plenty more Doctor Who coming our way — at least five more years of it, as revealed by showrunner Steven Moffat yesterday. Which means the Doctor has plenty of wild adventures ahead of him still. But the one thing he won’t be doing is leading a feature film. Read Moffat’s explanation of why there won’t be a Doctor Who movie after the jump.  Read More »

Doctor Who five years

The Time Lord known as Doctor Who has can manipulate a few elements of the universe in order to preserve himself — hell, the guy can regenerate an entirely new body. But he hasn’t always been able to fend off the capricious and sometimes fickle interest of the viewing public. The Doctor was off the air for many years, but since the show’s most recent resurgence things are going strong. Doctor Who is going so well, in fact, that the BBC sees at least another five years’ future in the series. Read More »

Sherlock

Doctor Who and Sherlock have quite a few things in common. Both of them are internationally popular British dramas with a huge geek fanbase. Both of them center around special but awkward heroes with more “normal” companions in tow. And both of them are run by Steven Moffat. So naturally, fans of both have long wondered if there might be any chance of the two properties crossing paths.

Well, there’s good news and bad news on that front. In an interview, Moffat reveals he’s all for a Doctor Who Sherlock crossover. It’s everyone else — Benedict Cumberbatch, Martin Freeman, and the producers — that’s against it. Read Moffat’s Doctor Who Sherlock crossover comments after the jump.  Read More »

Lego Wall-E 4

Wednesday, Lego announced the two latest sets to be created under the “Ideas” banner. These are sets that are imagined by fans, voted on by fans, and then judged by a group of Lego employees. Every year, a few new sets are picked that get turned into actual Lego Ideas sets. Previous examples are the Back to the Future Delorean and Ghostbusters Ecto-1. Well the two newest ones are both based in pop culture, and both are incredibly awesome.

Wall-E and Doctor Who are getting their own official Lego sets later this year. See photos and video of the Wall-E Lego and Doctor Who Lego below. Read More »

Broadchurch season 2 trailer

The UK series Broadchurch is at a strange nexus right now. The US remake of the first season, Gracepoint, is wrapping up tonight. David Tennant stars in that… just as he did in the UK original. Perfectly timed to that series conclusion is this first Broadchurch season 2 trailer, which shows that the second season takes place in the same town in which the events of season 1 went down, but there are still quite a few lingering problems and uncertainties. (Update: there are two trailers, in fact — one from the UK, and a US-specific one.)

Additionally, we’ve got the trailer for the Doctor Who Christmas Special, dubbed Last Christmas. Read More »

BBC theme park 1

Whovians rejoice: A BBC theme park is coming to the U.K. Attractions based on Doctor Who, Top Gear, and Sherlock are thought likely, though they haven’t yet been confirmed. A Doctor Who ride is not as novel an idea as you might think — Disney considered bringing the sci-fi property to Tomorrowland back in the ’80s.

Since the new park is backed by Paramount Pictures, it’s also expected to feature various Paramount franchises — possibly including Star Trek and Transformers. More on the planned BBC theme park after the jump. Read More »

Robert Downey Jr AMA

Back and forth we go with Iron Man 4. Robert Downey Jr. isn’t doing it, then he’s maybe doing it, then he’ll do it if Mel Gibson directs, then joked he’ll do it if Howard Stern directs. Honestly, there’s so much out there about the film, no one knows for sure what’s happening.

That was, until, Downey Jr. hit the couch on Ellen. When asked about Iron Man 4, Downey told the host that “Yes,” Iron Man 4 is happening.

Below, you can watch that video as well as read a ton of highlights from his recent AMA including teases that he’d love to cameo on Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D, updates on the development of Sherlock Holmes 3 and a Perry Mason film, possibly playing Doctor Who, the shift in marketing for The Judge, the likelihood of a Weird Science sequel, a few cryptic Avengers: Age of Ultron teases and the controversy of his Tropic Thunder character. Read the Robert Downey Jr AMA highlights below.

doctor who trailer Peter Capaldi

After a few teasing images and a couple teasing video bits, here’s the first full-length trailer for the new season of Doctor Who, featuring Peter Capaldi as the twelfth regeneration of the Doctor. The first two episodes of the new season are directed by Ben Wheatley (Sightseers, Kill List), but most of what you’ll get from this trailer is a sense of unease on the part of the Doctor as he questions his own nature. Capaldi looks more clenched and intense than the last couple Doctors have been. Will he truly be a more introspective Doctor?

Oh, and there are Daleks, and also a T. rex trotting around in front of Parliament. So that’s interesting. Check out the trailer below. Read More »
