Doctor Who TCA update

Today BBC America presented a Doctor Who panel for the Television Critics Association. Stars Peter Capaldi and Jenna Coleman were only available via satellite from the set, but writer/executive producer Steven Moffat was here in person. After the panel, Moffat answered follow-up questions from reporters, including some details about the possibility of a female Doctor, and the character guest star Maisie Williams will play. She will be different from Arya Stark for sure.

(Some vague spoilers for recent Doctor Who episodes are ahead.) Read More »

Doctor Who Season 8

Doctor Who took Hall H by storm this year, welcoming Twelfth Doctor Peter Capaldi to Comic-Con for the very first time. “I’ve never been in front of 7,000 people in my life,” he remarked upon seeing the crowd. But it didn’t take him long to adjust. He and the other panelists — stars Jenna Coleman and Michelle Gomez, and showrunner Steven Moffat — quickly won over the Whovians who’d waited all day.

Over the course of an hour, the group discussed the shifting dynamics between the characters, the “reckless” adventures of Season 9, the possibilities of a female Doctor, the likelihood of a Sherlock crossover, and more. Hit the jump for all the Doctor Who Comic-Con panel highlights.

Doctor Who

Whovians who braved the Hall H lines today at Comic-Con were treated to the very first look at the Doctor Who Season 9 trailer. But now everyone else gets to join in on the fun as well, as BBC America has posted the video online.

Among many, many other exciting bits and pieces, the Season 9 trailer also includes the first footage of Game of Thrones star Maisie Williams — though you’ll have to wait a little while longer to find out exactly what she’s doing there. “It’s going to be surprising, what she gets up to,” teased Doctor Who showrunner Steven Moffat.

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 »

Doctor Who season 8 premiere

Doctor Who Season 8 Teaser

We’ve seen a shot or two of Peter Capaldi in costume as the new regeneration of Doctor Who, but we have yet to see any real footage of the new Doctor in action. Now there is a Doctor Who season 8 teaser trailer, if a very brief one. “Tease” is the name of the game here, as this footage only gives a silhouetted look at Capaldi’s new Doctor. But it’s enough to get our attention, especially since the first couple episodes of the new season were directed by Ben Wheatley (Kill List, A Field in England, High Rise).

Paddington trailer

Seth MacFarlane is still working on that sequel to Ted, but in the meantime our screens will be filled with a kinder, gentler breed of stuffed animated animal. While the first Paddington trailer doesn’t reveal much, it does set the tone for a sweetly fantastical family adventure — basically, everything Ted was not. 

At the center of the story is the titular bear (voiced by Colin Firth), an unfailingly polite Anglophile who arrives in London from Peru to start a new life. He’s lost and alone until he’s taken in by the generous Brown family (led by Hugh Bonneville and Sally Hawkins). Watch the cute new trailer after the jump.

DOCTOR WHO SERIES 8

Briefly: A couple weeks ago the BBC teased us with a shot of the new Doctor, Peter Capaldi, on the set of Doctor Who. But the photo offered up (above) didn’t actually show the actor in his primary costume. A new photo does, however, and you can see it below.  Read More »

Peter Capaldi Doctor Who

It’s been a big year for Doctor Who fans, as the turnover from Matt Smith to Peter Capaldi was finessed by an anniversary special that dove into some previously unseen bits of the character’s history, complete with the return of a fan-favorite actor and the debut of a new part of the Doctor’s history.

Now we’ve got a new image of Capaldi in costume, posed and distributed to celebrate the show’s start of production with the actor in the lead role. The show’s writer and producer, Steven Moffat, joked, “First the eyebrows! Then, at Christmas, the face! Coming soon, the whole Doctor. In the Cardiff studios, the Capaldi era begins.” That’s “the face,” above, from the Christmas Special. Below, you can see the new image.

And for those who haven’t been hanging on every tidbit of news about the new Doctor Who, the first two episodes of the new series are directed by Ben Wheatley (Kill List, Sightseers, A Field in England). That info has been around for a couple months, but it’s worth emphasizing now. Read More »
