Much has been written about the forthcoming DOCTOR WHO episode “Let’s Kill Hitler” at today’s Summer TCA session in Beverly Hills, DOCTOR WHO showrunner Steven Moffat chimed in about any quasi-controversy. “Unequivocally, we’re against Hitler,” says Moffat. “I think he was a bad thing and I’m glad he’s gone. The worst thing you could do to that awful man is to take the Mickey out of him on DOCTOR WHO. We’re not really going to save Hitler. He’s dead already.” DOCTOR WHO resumes Series 6 on August 27, 2011 on BBC and BBC America.   Click on Link: For More […]Read On »

The X List: The Five Best DOCTOR WHO Doppelgangers

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 »

The X List: Five Best DOCTOR WHO Stories About the TARDIS

Janet Fielding, Sarah Sutton and Peter Davison in DOCTOR WHO - Season Nineteen - "Castrovalva" | ©1982 BBC

She’s the most consistent star in the history of the series, appearing alongside her beloved Doctor even when dozens of other companions have come and gone. She’s the blue box with the infinite universe of rooms and corridors within, the last child of Gallifrey, the dimensionally transcendental Type 40 time-and-space machine known as the TARDIS – and she’s sexy too. From the SIDRATS of “The War Games” to the solo flying of the console in “Inferno” and “Day of the Daleks;” from glimpses of control rooms and wardrobes in “The Masque of Mandragora,” “The Twin Dilemma,” “Time and the Rani,” […]Read On »

The X List: Five DOCTOR WHO Pirate Adventures

Although “The Curse of the Black Spot” was only the second full-fledged period pirate tale featured in DOCTOR WHO, there have been  other televised adventures in which the TARDIS has landed in the middle of swashbuckling, sea- or space-faring scurvy dogs in full eye-patch and parrot-y regalia. Let’s take a look back at the other times the Doctor and companions shivered their timbers! (Note to the dedicated fans: I’ve automatically discounted Blackbeard’s brief appearance in “The Mind Robber” because it’s not a major part of the story, and we’re only doing actual TV WHO, not the novels, audios or what-have-you.)
