VOTD: 47 Years of ‘Dr. Who’ in 6 Minutes

As someone who finds the 200-something episodes of Joss Whedon’s Buffyverse plenty daunting, I can’t even begin to imagine tackling Dr. Who. The long-running British television show  spans 47 years, over 700 episodes, and eleven different incarnations of the titular character. Dr. Who‘s long, convoluted history can be tough for even a devoted fan to keep straight, to say nothing of newcomers just tuning in for the first time.

Luckily, the Fine Brothers (whom you may recall from the time they upset Damon Lindelof with their biting Lost parody series) have taken it upon themselves to recap nearly five decades of Dr. Who in just six minutes. Terms like “TARDIS,” “Torchwood” and “Daleks” are explained, as are the costume changes and major plot points from each Doctor’s term. Whether you’re looking for an introduction or just a refresher, it’s worth checking out. Watch it after the jump.

Rom-com superemo Richard Curtis has been discussing the various projects on his plate, and none of them have been pitched as romantic comedies. That’s not to say one or two of them won’t be – they just haven’t been touted as such… so far. As well as an episode of Dr. Who (which is under new management with Tintin co-writer Stephen Moffat now in the driver’s seat and an installment scripted by Neil Gaiman coming along too), Curtis is also working on another time travel project. Full quotes after the break.

Development of New Dr. Who Movie Confirmed

dr_who

It doesn’t quite add up to me, but the first official confirmation of an in-development Dr. Who movie has been buried by the BBC at the bottom of a considerably less interesting article on one of the Who spin-off TV shows.

Widely acclaimed as the best Dr. ever, David Tennant has this past week completed the filming of his final episodes of the show. In the next month, filming begins with the next Dr., to be played by Matt Smith. Unlike, say, James Bond, Dracula or… er… Reggie Perrin, each actor to play the role of Dr. in the series is actually a new, regenerated incarnation of the same character in the same continuity so the swapping out of actors requires no kind of rebooting. I’ve been hearing rumors for a while that the transfer from Tennant to Smith would be an odd one, however…
