TARDIS: The stuff you might have missed…

Tue, 10/27/2015 - 5:46am

Every week we take 5 things that have been happening in the world of Doctor Who and hoist them onto our shoulders (metaphorically speaking) so you can see them over the crowds!


The fantastic Rufus Hound shot several short behind the scenes videos including this brief interview with someone on work experience… Wait a minute! Isn’t that..? You can see more now!

We were at London Comic Con on Saturday to live tweet from the Doctor Who panel… One of the most popular things lead writer and exec producer Steven Moffat revealed was that Jack Harkness could make a return to Doctor Who – but only if the story was right! Appropriately enough, the crafty Captain was mentioned in that night’s episode! (Bonus extra! Sorry to hark on about Harkness, but here are ten things we love about Jack!)

Hounding Rufus

Talking of twitter, we did a live Q&A with Rufus Hound at the weekend! Visit our twitter feed and spin back to the tweets from Sunday at 7pm where Rufus talks about everything from snogging Maisie Williams, playing the Doctor and returning as Sam Swift to his best moment on set… And who do you think he named as his fave companion? Find out if you’re right!

Games to Admire…

We set you a challenge! Make some brilliant games featuring the murderous Mire… and you delivered big time! We created a collection of the best ones so you could give them a whirl… Which is your favourite?

Run! It’s the Zygons!

Finally, we looked ahead to The Zygon Invasion with these brand new trailers for episode 7! It looks like the Doctor’s next adventure is going to be a scary one… perfect for Halloween!

We’re Dying to See The Woman Who Lived

Fri, 10/23/2015 - 3:40am

Ashildr’s journey continues in The Woman Who Lived on Saturday at 8.20pm and here are 6 reasons why we’re dying to see it!

Immortal Beloved

The final sequence of The Girl Who Died showed a less than happy Ashildr as the years appeared to roll by… So, what’s happened to her? Photos for ep6 seem to show her in different guises… In fact, are we sure they’re all the same person?

Release the Hound!

We reckon Rufus Hound has the charisma to make Sam Swift a very special character and the combination of Rufus, Peter Capaldi and Maisie Williams is more than enough to make us want to tune in. Rufus is always great to watch and so we’re guessing we’ll soon be fast friends with Sam Swift!

The Woman Who Wrote It

Catherine Tregenna wrote some of our favourite episodes of Torchwood, including the Hugo nominated adventure, ‘Captain Jack Harkness’ and we can’t wait to see what she brings to Doctor Who with this, her first script for the show.

Dandy Lion

We’re curious about this monstrous looking figure… Friend or foe? Where’s he from, what does he want and does his dentist get danger money?

Dandy Highwaymen!

It’s Doctor Who meets highwaymen! Flintlocks, masks, galloping horses, derring do and daring robberies… It’s obvious the episode will (stand and) deliver a LOT of action!

What next for Ashildr?

We loved Maisie Williams in The Girl Who Died and would love to see her back… We’re hoping ep6 will give some clues as to whether she’ll return and we’re glad that Maisie seemed up for more adventures in the world of Doctor Who… Let the speculation commence!

TARDIS: The stuff you might have missed…

Mon, 10/19/2015 - 11:05am

Every week we present 5 of the things from the world of Doctor Who that you might have missed, but you really need to check out! The past seven days have been full of everything from Missy to #Maisiecam… Allons-y!

Maisie, Maisie…

Peter Capaldi opens up about working with Game of Thrones star, Maisie Williams.

The last scene of The Girl Who Died was a visually striking, haunting sequence and you can see the remarkable storyboards for these moments in an exclusive gallery.


Maisie Williams shot and provided a commentary for some unique and must see videos… Everything from rehearsals, meeting the Mire and chuckles with, err, Chuckles… It’s all here!

10 Reasons Why We’re Super Excited about The Girl Who Died!

Fri, 10/16/2015 - 7:00am

The new episode is on BBC One on Saturday at 8.20pm and here are ten reasons why we can’t wait!

The Vikings are coming!

It’s the first time that Vikings have played such a central role in a Doctor Who adventure and although we’ll get the shouty, swordy, fighty Viking stuff, we’ll also see another side to them. And there’s one called Ashildr you should definitely keep your eyes on…

New monsters!

They’re huge, they’re scary and we’re guessing those guns don’t fire blanks. The Mire are the deadliest warrior race in the galaxy and they do not come in peace…

New Villain!

His name is Odin, he’s in charge of the murderous Mire and he shouts things like, ‘You fight or you die!’ Bring it on! Played by the brilliant David Schofield we reckon he’ll definitely be a baddie we’ll love to hate!

The Write Stuff

The ep is written by Jamie Mathieson and Steven Moffat who between them have a writing pedigree that takes in episodes such as Blink, The Day of the Doctor, Flatline and Mummy on the Orient Express. Oh, and a little show called Sherlock. So, fair to say expectations are high but hey, no pressure…

You must enable javascript to play content require(['smp'], function(SMP) { new SMP({"container":"#smp-14470884047007","pid":"p0358yct","playerSettings":{"delayEmbed":true,"externalEmbedUrl":"http:\/\/\/programmes\/p0358yct\/player"}}); }); Facing the facts…

Talking of Steven Moffat, Doctor Who’s lead writer recently revealed that in The Girl Who Died, the Doctor will finally remember where he’s seen his own face before… We want to know more! Is it a link to previous episode The Fires of Pompeii? An adventure we don’t know about?


We’ll have all the drama and scares that new enemies and a seemingly impossible situation for the Doctor deliver, but there are some laugh out loud moments in the episode that we’re looking forward to. For starters, in the preview clip below we’re loving the Doctor’s expression when he puts his foot down…

You must enable javascript to play content require(['smp'], function(SMP) { new SMP({"container":"#smp-14470884047014","pid":"p03565k2","playerSettings":{"delayEmbed":true,"externalEmbedUrl":"http:\/\/\/programmes\/p03565k2\/player"}}); }); Amazing Maisie

Game of Thrones’ Maisie Williams guest stars in the episode and is brilliant as Ashildr, the young Viking whose quiet life is disrupted when her friends and family are attacked by killer space warriors. (Don’t you just hate it when that happens?) But she’s also back in the following week’s episode… How? Who knows! Maisie herself teased us by revealing, ‘I can’t say how, so you’ll have to watch until the end (of The Girl Who Died) where there’s a lovely little surprise…’

You must enable javascript to play content require(['smp'], function(SMP) { new SMP({"container":"#smp-14470884047018","pid":"p035cv4y","playerSettings":{"delayEmbed":true,"externalEmbedUrl":"http:\/\/\/programmes\/p035cv4y\/player"}}); }); You must enable javascript to play content require(['smp'], function(SMP) { new SMP({"container":"#smp-14470884047021","pid":"p0351cnh","playerSettings":{"delayEmbed":true,"externalEmbedUrl":"http:\/\/\/programmes\/p0351cnh\/player"}}); }); Pressing problems…

Sometimes preview clips are funny or intriguing or thought-provoking. Other times they make you shout, ‘Noooooooooo! What happens next?’ The clip below tumbles into that category. How do Clara and Ashildr escape? We demand answers!

You must enable javascript to play content require(['smp'], function(SMP) { new SMP({"container":"#smp-14470884047025","pid":"p0358vjw","playerSettings":{"delayEmbed":true,"externalEmbedUrl":"http:\/\/\/programmes\/p0358vjw\/player"}}); }); Dragon’s Den..?

Doctor Who is made in Wales so it feels appropriate that at last we have what looks like an enormous, awesome dragon in the show, giving a whole new meaning to the phrase, ‘You’re fired!’

How will they do it?

The Doctor and Clara have 12 hours to turn a bunch of farmers and blacksmiths into a fighting force that can defeat a frighteningly powerful alien army that has just been declared war on. To be honest, we think they’ll find a way… but we can’t wait to find out how!

Why Maisie Williams is Perfect for Doctor Who

Tue, 10/13/2015 - 6:30am

The announcement that Maisie Williams would be guest starring in Doctor Who triggered street parties, one-off public holidays and the spontaneous combustion of at least 17 fans around the world. Okay. Not really. But almost. And it’s fair to say people were excited in a big way which is totally understandable as we were, too. So, ahead of her debut with the Doctor (Saturday, 8.20pm on BBC One since you ask) here are 8 reasons we reckon Maisie Williams is perfect for Doctor Who…

Chemistry with Capaldi

Maisie guest stars in the next two episodes so it’s no surprise she gets a lot of screen time with the Doctor. And it just works. ‘She’s a fantastical contrast to Peter (Capaldi)!’ Steven Moffat told us. ‘All of entertainment is bound by the two of them and they work beautifully together.’

Cheeky, Feisty and Fun!

Doctor Who has a long tradition of strong female characters who challenge the Doctor and it’s crystal clear that Maisie Williams can pull that off to perfection. Check out the moment at the end of the trailer below. Normally you’d need to operate on the Doctor’s vocal chords to render him speechless but Maisie’s character manages it with a simple reveal and a single line. See what we mean?

You must enable javascript to play content require(['smp'], function(SMP) { new SMP({"container":"#smp-14464827037627","pid":"p02wns22","playerSettings":{"delayEmbed":true,"externalEmbedUrl":"http:\/\/\/programmes\/p02wns22\/player"}}); }); Charismaisie.

She’s charismatic without even trying. We’re calling that charismaisie.

Game On

We reached the fifth paragraph before mentioning Game of Thrones. Do we win a prize? As the never-say-die Arya Stark, Maisie has got plenty of experience when it comes to sword play, screen fights and all the other stuff she’s been doing in GoT since 2011. Perfect preparation for an episode about a Viking village having to defend itself against space warriors, we’d have thought.

You must enable javascript to play content require(['smp'], function(SMP) { new SMP({"container":"#smp-14464827037642","pid":"p034rs3s","playerSettings":{"delayEmbed":true,"externalEmbedUrl":"http:\/\/\/programmes\/p034rs3s\/player"}}); }); Crossing fandoms

It’s fair to say that Doctor Who and Game of Thrones both have huge and fabulous fan bases right around the world. And crossing fan bases is like Ghostbusters crossing streams. It’s a little daunting but the results are spectacular. Or as Maisie put it, ‘When you cross over to a different geeky, fandom world, everyone was like: THIS IS INSANE! So, it was such a nice buzz!’

Maisie Keeping Mum

There’s been a TARDIS-full of speculation about the character Maisie will be playing and what her connection with the Time Lord might be. Luckily, after years of keeping secrets on Game of Thrones Maisie has let nothing slip meaning we’re all going to have to watch her eps to uncover the truth…

The Extraordinary Ms Williams

She may be best known for Game of Thrones but she also starred in The Secret of Crickley Hall (see the pic below!) and it was her performance in Cyberbully that caught the attention of Doctor Who’s executive producer, Brian Minchin. ‘She was captivating [in Cyberbully]!’ he explained. ‘If someone can take 80 minutes of screen time, tell a story like that and take you with them… That’s extraordinary!’

Loving it!

Maisie clearly loved appearing in Doctor Who and that sense of enjoyment virtually reaches out of the screen and ruffles your hair. ‘It’s been really exciting working on it [Doctor Who],’ she told us. ‘And I’m glad to be a part of it now!’

Maisie Williams is in The Girl Who Died which starts on BBC One on Saturday at 8.20pm.

Slipknot’s Corey Taylor Roars into Action in this Week’s Doctor Who!

Thu, 10/08/2015 - 10:01am

Corey Taylor – best known as the lead singer in the US rock band Slipknot – lends his unique vocals to the Fisher King, a terrifying new foe in this week’s episode of Doctor Who.

Corey is a big Doctor Who fan and was delighted to help make the Fisher King extra scary by recording roars and screams that can be heard in Before the Flood which starts on Saturday at 8.25pm on BBC One. He described the experience as ‘awesome’ and took time out to visit the TARDIS (above) during his time at the BBC’s Roath Lock Studios.

‘We needed an awesome roar for the Fisher King,’ producer Derek Ritchie explained. ‘We asked Corey if he might like to do the honours… He was completely up for it!’

‘He has one of the most well-known screams in the history of music,’ Derek added. ‘We now have the most incredible roar for our incredible monster! He now sounds as terrifying as he looks!’

See the trailer for Before the Flood!

Why are we gushing about Before the Flood?

Tue, 10/06/2015 - 6:00am

We loved Under the Lake and if you haven’t seen it yet, do yourself a favour and BBC iPlayer it! Next up is the spectacular Before the Flood which begins on BBC One at 8.25pm on Saturday. Are we excited? You betcha. And here are ten reasons why…

The Ghost Doctor – What? What! What?!

The moment we saw the ghost Doctor we were desperate to know what happens next… Have we glimpsed the Doctor’s ultimate fate? And does this make Toby Whithouse a ghost writer? (Badda boom!)

The Fisher King

The blurb for this ep tells us ‘a fearsome alien warlord - the Fisher King - sets in motion a twisted plan to ensure his own survival…’ Fearsome alien warlord? Why, just for once, couldn’t it have been a disarmingly genial alien warlord? Anyway... We think the Fisher King is the monstrous-looking dude in the trailer below and although we’ll be watching from behind the sofa, we can’t wait to meet him. What’s his plan? And is the Doctor really powerless to prevent it?

You must enable javascript to play content require(['smp'], function(SMP) { new SMP({"container":"#smp-14458779040880","pid":"p0345n54","playerSettings":{"delayEmbed":true,"externalEmbedUrl":"http:\/\/\/programmes\/p0345n54\/player"}}); }); Corey gets Roary

Slipknot meets Doctor Who? We’re in! Producer Derek Ritchie explained, ‘We needed an awesome roar for the Fisher King. We asked Corey if he might like to do the honours. He was completely up for it!’ Sounds good to us! No, literally – it sounds good to us…

Far from hum Drum

The Doctor is in dead trouble (we’re hilarious) but Clara and co haven’t exactly checked into a 5 star hotel. They’re trapped in an underwater base that’s got homicidal ghosts on the loose and their biggest hope of rescue has just turned up which would be fab, except it looks like he’s carked it…

So, who’s next?

In the trailer below, Bennett demands to know, ‘So, who’s next?’ With the Doctor and two crew members already turned into ghosts, who’s next in the line? Lunn? Cass? Surely not… Clara?

You must enable javascript to play content require(['smp'], function(SMP) { new SMP({"container":"#smp-14458779040901","pid":"p0344k08","playerSettings":{"delayEmbed":true,"externalEmbedUrl":"http:\/\/\/programmes\/p0344k08\/player"}}); }); Roll Over, Beethoven

Teasing this episode, Steven Moffat threw in the question, ‘Who composed Beethoven’s Fifth?’ So, our question is, what has the crazy-haired German composer got to do with the crazy-eyed ghosts in the 22nd century? We demand to know the score!

Wholly Moley!

It looks like we’ll meet Prentis before he died, which should prove something of a treat. He’s played by the brilliant Paul Kaye (Thoros in Game of Thrones) and is the same species as Gibbis, the Tivolian from The God Complex. He may not have been everyone’s choice as a roomie but he was a fascinating character so we’re looking forward to find out what the deal with Prentis will be.

Amour the Flood

Call us old romantics, but we reckon Bennett lurves O’Donnell and that Cass and Lunn should be an item. Now, in Doctor Who that could spell happily ever after in a cottage in the country or it could mean the kind of plot-line that tugs at your heart and forces you to pretend you’ve got grit in your eye…

Barney with Bennett?

Bennett was one of the Drum’s more timid crew members but he seems to be having a bit of a heated exchange with the Doctor here… What gives? What’s happened between the two of them? We can probably file this under, ‘What on earth has the Doctor done this time?’ and we’re looking forward to finding out!

For Pete’s Sake!

The guy that provided the voice of Darth Maul in Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace! The actor that played Pete in Shaun of the Dead! And the one who played Denarian Saal in Guardians of the Galaxy! They all provide the voice of the Fisher King in Before the Flood and they’re all the award-winning Peter Serafinowicz! Bring it ownnnn!!!

And finally, here’s Peter Capaldi, Jenna Coleman and Steven Moffat introducing the episode… BBC One. 8.25pm on Saturday… We’re there!

It’s the first Doctor Who spin-off in donkey’s years and it’s Class! Steven Moffat and writer Patrick Ness taught us a thing or two about what we can expect from the Coal Hill School-based show…

Doctor Who Extra: Cass and Lunn

The response to Cass and Lunn was overwhelmingly positive but what did Sophie Stone and Zaqi Ismail think about their roles in Under the Lake?
