Good news, Whovians: we now know exactly when Class will be in session. U.K. fans will be able to catch the Doctor Who spinoff starting October 22 on BBC Three. U.S. fans, unfortunately, will have to wait a bit longer, as Class won’t hit BBC America until spring 2017.

Peter Capaldi is confirmed to appear in the Class series premiere, which is called “For Tonight We Might Die.” Patrick Ness (A Monster Calls) created the series and is executive producing with Doctor Who‘s Steven Moffat and Brian Minchin.

It used to be that licensed games had little to no hope of securing voice actors that were familiar to players. But that has changed dramatically over the years, to the point where it isn’t surprising to see film and TV actors lending their voices to games. But the game Lego Dimensions is still crazy — it’s voice cast is like a jumble of actors who are all hanging out after the stories in a shelf full of DVDs come to life.
This wild ensemble features Christopher Lloyd and Michael J. Fox as their Back to the Future characters; Peter Capaldi and many other Doctor Who actors as their respective characters; the cast of The Lego Movie, with Chris Pratt doing double duty as Owen from Jurassic World; and even a video game crossover, as Ellen McLain shows up as GLaDOS from Portal.
Oh, and Gary Oldman voices the bad guy. What a weird world we live in now. Check out the Lego Dimensions trailer below. Read More »

Here’s the new trailer for Doctor Who season nine, and this footage features a whole collection of wild shots, many of which seem to be from the two-part opening story. Among the many sights in this trailer are a few shots that suggest details of the Maisie Williams Doctor Who guest role, briefly glimpsed at the end of the first trailer, and suggested much more heavily now thanks to shots like the one above.
But she’s not even the lone highlight of this trailer, as there are Daleks, other alien sights, and more of Peter Capaldi‘s grit as this incarnation of the Doctor. You can see both the new trailer and the first one below. Read More »

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.

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.

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 »
