Doctor Who: The Twelfth Doctor #4 Is Full Of Death Cults, Murder, And Mystery

fb share tweet share

Doctor WhoThe show may be between seasons at the present time, but Titan Comics is certainly churning out Doctor Who comics like nobody’s business. Now they’re back with the continuing adventures of The Twelfth Doctor, and issue number 4 finds the Doctor and Clara right where we left them, in two drastically different time periods, both dealing with incarnations of the same ancient evil.

Last time, you may remember, the duo was investigating the mysterious death of an old travelling companion of the Doctor, Tiger Maratha, when the Time Lord was inadvertently transported back to India in 1825, leaving Clara and Tiger’s daughter, Prinyanka, in 2315. Oddly enough, they’re both faced with the same Kali-worshipping death cult, just a few centuries apart.

Doctor Who: The Eleventh Doctor #7 Brings The Eternal Dogfight To Earth

fb share tweet share

Doctor WhoTitan Comic’s Doctor Who: The Eleventh Doctor has been all over the place quality wise. Every time it takes a step in the right direction, the next issue takes two back, or at least diagonally. In fact, the last issue, the sixth in the run, was literally a story told backwards, from end to beginning, in a gimmick that was just cheap and aggravating—it begins with the death of a key character, only pull an, “Oh, he’s not really dead” move that leaves a bad taste.

More than the other continuing Doctor Who titles, The Eleventh Doctor has been prone to cramming a single arc into each individual issue, making them too short and shallow to have much impact. So knowing right away that Issue #7, “Eternal Dogfight,” is the first installment of a two-part adventure makes you aware that this is going to be bigger, longer arc. That’s reassuring, providing more space to lay the groundwork and get you invested in the story. And the result is…mixed.

Netflix Isn’t Dropping Doctor Who But Red Dwarf Is Gone

Doctor WhoReports circulated earlier this week that Netflix was going to drop streaming for a ton of popular British shows—most notable for our interests were Doctor Who, Red Dwarf, Torchwood, and a handful of others. The news kicked off a massive outcry from fans, but as it turns out, there wasn’t as much need to be concerned as many initially thought. At least some of those shows, chief among them the adventures of a certain two-hearted Time Lord from Gallifrey, will remain available for your streaming needs. For a few others favorite titles, however, fans are shit out of luck.

According to Variety, a new deal has been struck between Netflix and the powers that be at the BBC, and for the foreseeable future you’ll still be able to watch these shows on your computer, tablet, smartphone, TV, or whatever your preferred delivery system:

Doctor-Who-Deep-Breath1We’re only a few weeks removed from the most recent Doctor Who Christmas special, not to mention the news that Jenna Louise Coleman is staying on as the Twelfth Time Lord’s latest companion. Now the BBC just announced that the cameras are already rolling at the Cardiff studio for season 9, as well as revealed a list of guest stars for the first episodes of the season.

One of the visiting stars of the debut, which is a two-part affair, will be familiar to fans of HBO’s Game of Thrones. Actor and comedian Paul Kaye, who plays Thoros of Myr, the leader of the Brothers Without Banners in the third season of the fantasy epic, stops by for a turn, and seems pretty excited about it. He says:

Will Russell T Davies Ever Return To Write Doctor Who?

fb share tweet share

DaviesIt’s been nearly a decade since Russell T Davies resurrected the British cult hit Doctor Who. Since the premiere of “Rose” on March 26, 2005, we’ve been through five Doctors (counting the War Doctor), numerous companions, and eight seasons of adventures through all of time and space. In 2010, both Davies and actor David Tennant wrapped up their run on Doctor Who, making way for incoming Eleventh Doctor Matt Smith and new showrunner Steven Moffat. Having been instrumental in introducing Doctor Who to a whole new generation, will Davies ever return to the TARDIS, perhaps to write an episode or two in a future season? According to the man himself, we probably shouldn’t hold our collective breath.

SadDocWith a new Doctor in Peter Capaldi and one chapter of his adventures with Clara closed in tragic fashion, the long wait for season 9 of Doctor Who has begun. Thankfully, you can revisit most of the Doctor’s “modern” adventures — beginning with Christopher Eccleston and stretching through the David Tennant and Matt Smith years — on Netflix. I would be very surprised if some of you weren’t in the midst of a trip back through those episodes as I write this. Well, I’ve got some bad news for all you Whovians: Netflix will be dropping Doctor Who from its streaming lineup at the end of the month, along with other British favorites such as Who spinoff Torchwood, cult favorite Red Dwarf, and a ton of other British fare.
