Doctor Who Rumors: More Companions And Some Serious Deja Vu

fb share tweet share

WhoLast week we learned that Doctor Who will be returning for its eighth modern season this August, but the brief teaser didn’t give us much to go on. As we inch closer to the show’s season premiere, there are, however, some intriguing rumors making the rounds, including the possibility of more companions taking up residence in the TARDIS and a brain-twisting idea that could somehow, within the narrative, address the fact that Twelfth Doctor actor Peter Capaldi has already appeared in the Who-niverse twice as other characters.

First, the companions. Clara (Jenna Coleman) is obviously returning, but there have also been rumors that actor Samuel Anderson, who is playing a recurring character named Danny Pink, will be traveling with the Doctor as a companion. Pink is a teacher at Coal Hill School, the same place where Clara is on the teaching staff. And of course long-time Who fans will recall that Coal Hill played a big part in the very first Doctor Who story: the Doctor’s first companions, Ian and Barbara, both taught at Coal Hill, where the Doctor’s “granddaughter” Susan had been attending school while they were on Earth. But if Danny Pink is to be a new companion, he might not be the only one.

Doctor Who Teases An August Premiere (And Matt Smith Totally Would Return)

fb share tweet share

Back in December, with the annual Doctor Who Christmas special, we got our first glimpse at Peter Capaldi’s new Time Lord. We knew that season eight, which will reportedly be Capaldi’s only go as the venerable time travelling alien, would begin latter this year, but there was no word on when. While there still isn’t a specific date, this new teaser greatly narrows down the possibilities. The most recent Time Lord, Matt Smith, has also indicated that he’s down to return to the franchise pretty much whenever the phone rings.

According to this quick video released by the BBC, Capaldi’s reign will kick off this August. It doesn’t get any more exact than that, but considering that the show usually airs on Saturdays, and that there are only five of that particular day of the week in that month, there aren’t all that many options for a premiere.

10Back in March we first reported on a pair of upcoming Doctor Who comic series slated to debut this summer. They’ll be the first Who projects coming out of the franchise’s new comic-book home at Titan Comics (IDW Publishing previously held the Who license for years). The good news for those who are still missing David Tennant and/or Matt Smith’s versions of the Doctor should be pleased, as both the Tenth and Eleventh incarnations of the Doctor will be getting ongoing series exploring previously untold adventures. Now we’ve got a bit more info about the two series, including details about the new companions who will be moving into the TARDIS.

Terminator: Genesis Adds Another Time Traveler In Doctor Who’s Matt Smith

fb share tweet share

Matt Smith doctor whoOne of the joys of science fiction is seeing fan favorite actors stick with the genre across different projects. Arnold Schwarzenegger cemented his sci-fi legacy with iconic roles in Predator, Total Recall, and of course the Terminator series. For Alan Taylor’s currently-in-production Terminator: Genesis, Schwarzenegger may share the screen with none other than Doctor Who. Or, at least the eleventh incarnation of him, as Paramount and Skydance Productions have added British actor Matt Smith to the quasi-sequel. They’ve got to let him wear a bowtie, right?

It’s hard to think of someone better to bring into a time travelling adventure than someone who was once a proper Time Lord. Unfortunately, Paramount and Skydance are being cagey with Smith’s character specifics, describing him only as “a new character with a strong connection to John Connor.” Which, at this point in the redevelopment of this central storyline, could mean just about anything. Is he the friendly resistance mail carrier? Will the somewhat svelte actor play a badass soldier of some kind? Maybe a half-brother that John never knew about? I could keep this hypothetical train chugging all day long.

Steven Moffat Hints At Why The TARDIS Isn’t Crazy About Clara

fb share tweet share

ClaraWe’re in the long dark between seasons of Doctor Who at the moment, so there’s no a whole hell of a lot of information flowing about what we’ve got to look forward to in season eight just yet. As such, we’re left to fill out Who cravings with things like this. But hold on, it turns out Who boss Steven might have let slip some intriguing tidbits in a recent issue of Doctor Who Magazine, specifically with regards to something you may or may not have noticed in the last season of Doctor Who: that the TARDIS might not be entirely fond of the Doctor’s latest companion.

It’s a story element that was easily overshadowed by the larger arc of the season, especially since it was leading up to the 50th anniversary 1-2-3 of the Name, Day, and Time of the Doctor. But the TARDIS is alive, after all, and in fact the Doctor even had a (Hugo-winning) adventure with her in human form. In a very real way, she’s his original companion, the one who’s been there from the beginning and outlasted all the others. So why should the TARDIS mind Clara any more than she did all the ones who came before?

FOR-NI-CATE: A Doctor Who Porn Parody Is Coming

fb share tweet share

RoseWell, we already covered a sweet, romantic Doctor Who story with that lovely fan proposal from earlier today. So now let’s yank the wheel in the opposite direction, into sweaty, naked, wibbly-wobbly Doctor Who lust. I’m talking about the three-way intersection between pop culture, commerce, and good old-fashioned smut. Somebody find the keys to the HARDIS: there’s a Doctor Who porn parody positioning itself for impending release.

Porn parody website WoodRocket.com (NSFW, naturally) revealed the big news today via Twitter, and we won’t have to spend much time in antici…pation. It’s called Doctor Whore, and it’ll be unfixing your points in time this May. I have to say, though, the title leaves me a little unsatisfied, especially in a world where both Dicktor Who and Cocktor Who were options. But look, they’ve got a NSFW logo!
