For those who don’t know – in the whole universe, how many can there be? – DOCTOR WHO is a BBC science fiction series that began in 1963, about the titular Time Lord who travels the cosmos in his Tardis with a variety of companions.

Davies revived DOCTOR WHO in 2005, with Christopher Eccleston in the lead. After one season, Eccleston’s Doctor regenerated into a new iteration played by […]Read On »

After the DOCTOR WHO series made a brief tour of the U.S. in Series 6  by actually shooting in the states for the first time, showrunner Steven Moffat wouldn’t rule out the idea of revisiting America again for the show – but only if it’s right. “It’s entirely about story,” says Moffat while at today’s Summer 2011 TCA tour in Beverly Hills. “I don’t think in order to make DOCTOR WHO [appeal to]  Americans you have to do stories set in America. Americans are not going to wish there were more series set in America. It’s story driven. [America] is […]Read On »

At today’s 2011 TCA press tour in Beverly Hills, Matt Smith was asked who his favorite DOCTOR WHO was, and the answer is … second Doctor Patrick Troughton. “What’s wonderful about him is he’s weird and peculiar, but he’s not asking you to think he’s weird or peculiar,” says Smith. The actor also spoke about how being a younger Doctor actually helped give a new dimension to the character. “It worked in my favor,” says Smith. “There’s something funny about a young face and an old soul. It allows you to reinvent being old. So that was interesting. When I […]Read On »

Viewers that sat down to watch last Saturday’s new episode of DOCTOR WHO, “The Rebel Flesh,” might have been shocked when the final frames revealed a clone Doctor spouting his usual rapid-fire dialogue from behind an Odo-like mass of featureless flesh. On the other hand, since it was a story all about clones (or Gangers), how likely was it that we weren’t going to get a double Doctor? This isn’t the first time we’ve met a twin of the Time Lord. In fact, it’s happened quite a few times over the years, with everything from robot and android doubles in […]Read On »
