Doctor Who


Arise, Sir Doctor...

BBC - Doctor Who - Wed, 12/31/2014 - 8:22am

John Hurt, who so memorably played the War Doctor in 2013, has received a knighthood in the New Year Honours.

John Hurt first appeared in Doctor Who during the final, electrifying moments of The Name of the Doctor before making a cameo appearance in The Night of the Doctor. He later starred alongside Matt Smith and David Tennant in the show’s 50th anniversary special, the feature-length adventure, The Day of the Doctor. The veteran actor received his knighthood for services to drama after a career lasting more than five decades.

James Corden, who played Craig in The Lodger and Closing Time, is awarded an OBE for services to drama and said he was ‘thrilled, overwhelmed and honoured to be recognised in such a way’, adding ‘My mum is already fretting about what to wear!’

Meera Syal has also been recognised in the New Year Honours and becomes a CBE. Well-known to Doctor Who fans for playing Dr Nasreen Chaudhry in The Hungry Earth and Cold Blood, she’s recognised for services to drama and literature.

Congratulations to John Hurt, James Corden and Meera Syal!

Doctor Who Extra: Last Christmas

BBC - Doctor Who - Thu, 12/25/2014 - 2:35pm

It’s a very merry Doctor Who Extra as we bring you all the stars of the latest adventure in one big Christmas cracker of an episode! Peter Capaldi and Jenna Coleman reveal what it was like working with Nick Frost and the man who brought Santa to life so memorably discusses why he gave him such a unique spin…

Dan Starkey – known to millions as Strax, but playing Ian the Elf in Last Christmas - shares his delight at appearing in three festive specials in a row and co-stars Nathan McMullen (Wolf), Faye Marsay (Shona), Natalie Gumede (Ashley) and Maureen Beattie (Bellows) all give their candid take on what it was like to be part of this ‘dream cast’!

Executive Producer and lead writer Steven Moffat provides a fascinating insight into the origins of the story, and there’s a special treat as Michael Troughton (Professor Albert) recalls his father, Patrick Troughton (the Second Doctor) and how he visited the set of Doctor Who during the production of classics including The Evil of the Daleks and The Web of Fear. All this plus some brilliant, exclusive footage captured during the production of the 2014 Christmas Special.

Doctor Who Extra: Last Christmas is available on BBC iPlayer right now!

The Doctor and Clara face their Last Christmas

BBC - Doctor Who - Tue, 11/25/2014 - 7:38am

The BBC Media Centre has released details of the BBC’s Christmas Schedule. And there’s some intriguing news in there for Doctor Who fans!

According to the Press Release:

‘In Doctor Who, the Doctor and Clara face their Last Christmas. Trapped on an Arctic base, under attack from terrifying creatures, who are you going to call? Santa Claus!’

Will this really be the Last Christmas for the Doctor and Clara? And what exactly are these terrifying creatures? It’s not the first time the Doctor has visited the Arctic of course. It’s previously been home to an Ice Warrior in Cold War - and the Cybermen! Perhaps there are clues to be found if you watch the teaser for the Christmas episode. You can also catch this exclusive clip for Children in Need.

As Danny Cohen, Director of Television, says: “This year's Christmas line-up on BBC Television is one of our best ever. There's world-class talent, edge of your seat drama, outstanding comedy and fantastic storytelling. Across our channels we will bring families together and provide something for everyone.”

The episode will star Peter Capaldi, Jenna Coleman, Nick Frost, Michael Troughton and Nathan McMullen – along with a host of guest stars. You can read more about the BBC’s Christmas Schedule on the Media Centre website.
