Doctor Who: The Tenth Doctor #5 Takes On Universal Art

fb share tweet share

Doctor WhoOf the three Doctor Who titles Titan Comics currently has going, The Tenth Doctor continues to show that it is far and away the best of the bunch. Issue #5, the conclusion of the two-part “Arts in Space” arc, further illustrates that this incarnation of the Time Lord, along with his travelling companion Gabby Gonzales, are easily the most relatable, connected duo running around the comic book pages, while also showing that writer Nick Abadzis isn’t afraid to take his time in letting a story or thread unfold and evolve.

The plot picks up where we left off last time, with the pair searching for the Doctor’s friend, the block transfer manipulation artist (don’t ask) Zhe, running from the male/female split personalities of the Apprentice. Still framed, at least in part, as a letter from Gabby to a friend, the action is harrowing and dark as the two search for answers, all while dodging things their enemy twists out of reality, like dragons, sculptures come to life, and a whole space mansion in a state of angry flux.

Watch The Doctor Meet Santa Claus In This Doctor Who Christmas Special Clip

fb share tweet share

It’s truly a magical time of the year for Whovians everywhere, as we’re only ten days away from the latest of Doctor Who’s annual Christmas specials. And if you just can’t wait, if you need a fix from the long running sci-fi adventure, like bad, here is an explosive (sorry, had to be done) new clip from the upcoming episode.

Ominously titled “The Last Christmas,” this installment promises to be a doozy for a variety of reasons. First, it features none other than the big guy himself, Santa Claus, played by general awesome dude, and frequent Edgar Wright and Simon Pegg collaborator, Nick Frost (Shaun of the Dead, The World’s End). That alone makes for a rad way to celebrate Christmas and is enough to entice many viewers, but this is the episode that we’ve been told will reveal the ultimate fate of the Doctor’s (Peter Capaldi) latest travelling companion, Clara (Jenna Louise Coleman).

The closer we get to Christmas, the closer Doctor Who fans get to the real reason they’re excited for the holiday season, the annual Christmas Special. It’s still a few weeks off, but it’s never too early to get excited. If nothing else, Nick Frost plays Santa Claus (or does he?), and that should be a pretty damn good time. And just in case you’re about to burst from having to wait so long, the BBC has released another quick new trailer for the special, full of moody atmosphere and peril.

This is going to be an especially interesting installment to watch, because this is where we’ll finally get answers one way or another about the future of Jenna Louise Coleman’s Clara, the Doctor’s latest travelling companion. Back in August we first heard reports that she might leave the show to pursue other career options. Since then there has been news that she changed her mind and is going to stay, but nothing on this front is definite except the fact that the network came out and said that we’ll find out for sure in this episode. As you know, this particular episode is called “The Last Christmas,” which could very well be an ominous sign in that regard.

Steven Moffat Confirms That The Doctor Could Become A Woman, Here’s How

CapaldiWe know that Peter Capaldi will be back as the lead in Doctor Who through season 9, but as a show about continual rebirth and reinvention, there is always an eye on the future. And like it or not, love the idea or hate it, there is still talk that a future incarnation of the venerable Time Lord may be a woman. That’s not going to go away anytime soon, as Capaldi, Steven Moffat, and Michelle Gomez have all recently chimed in on the subject.

Just a head’s up, there may be some minor spoilers beyond this point if you’re not current on Doctor Who.

Is Doctor Who: The Last Christmas’ Santa The ‘Real’ Santa?

TheLastChristmasThe Doctor Who Christmas special is one of our favorite holiday traditions here at Giant Freakin’ Robot, so every day closer we get to this year’s installment — entitled “The Last Christmas” — makes us just a little bit happier. Not to mention full of questions, and those questions aren’t finding many answers in this new batch of promotional images from the special. Chief among them: what the hell is up with all the goddamn oranges?

The Doctor’s got an orange. Santa Claus has an orange. I’m betting Clara’s got an orange or two stashed somewhere too. What does it all mean? I haven’t the foggiest, except that maybe this year The Doctor is facing off against some sort of vitamin C vampire.

This Doctor Who Star Is Set To Appear On Star Trek Continues

Doctor WhoHave you always wondered what it would look like if Doctor Who and Star Trek came together? If that’s the case, then today is your lucky day, sort of, in a weird, roundabout, totally unofficial way. Former Time Lord Colin Baker is going to have a guest appearance on the fan made Trek series Star Trek Continues. Even in this unusual manner, it’s hard not to get excited about the collision of two such long-lived, iconic sci-fi franchises.

A crowdfunded series, Continues is the brainchild of a group of likeminded Trek fanatics that seeks to give the characters from the original series a chance they never got when the show was prematurely cancelled. In their way, they carry on the Enterprise’s five-year mission to explore strange new worlds, to seek out new life and new civilizations, to boldly go where no man has gone before. And Baker is set to show up on the fourth episode of the series.
