What to do in the event of a Zygon Invasion

Thu, 10/29/2015 - 11:00am

UNIT intel has predicted a Zygon Invasion will be launched on Saturday, 8.15pm. In order to alleviate public hysteria we’re issuing an easy to follow, 10-point guide to what you should do in the event of a Zygon invasion!

PANIC!!!

If anyone tells you NOT to panic, ask that person if they’re being serious. We’re talking about living, bobbling lumps of hate that can murder and morph with frightening ease. Panic on the streets of wherever you are is perfectly acceptable.

DON’T PANIC!!!

Yes, very Arthur Dent, as someone once said, but after you’ve shaken off your ‘panic freak out’, attempt to calm down. Have a jelly baby. Try to think straight. Not all the Zygons are baddies. Or are they?

Know your enemy…

Rule one is always the same. Know your enemy. This essential guide to the Zygon menace should help! And yes, yes, yes we know we said rule one but we’ve made it rule three. We’re crazy.

Zygons can morph to resemble any human so you might want to check that your kith and kin are kosher. We suggest asking a question that only they would know the answer to, such as, ‘What’s my favourite episode of Doctor Who?’ If they reply, ‘The Trouble with Tribbles’, RUN FOR YOUR LIFE!

By the way if you think you could tell a Zygon from a human, can you identify which is the alien out of these two Queens?

DO NOT PUN!

We’re putting this one in upper case. That’s how seriously we feel about it. Do not – repeat do not – rehash the overly-familiar, ‘Let’s let Zygons be Zygons’ gag. It’s so old it makes the Sisterhood of Karn look like a recently formed offshoot of Mumsnet.

We’ve done it before…

…with the help of people like Osgood! Find out what she had to say on the subject in the video below…

We could just give them what they want. That would make them leave, wouldn’t it? It’s not like they want anything massive. Like the world or anything! Is it? Errr… Better check out this video…

Try emulating the one which kicks in 25 seconds into this video. If it’s (Os)good enough for her, it’s (Os)good enough for us!

You must enable javascript to play content require(['smp'], function(SMP) { new SMP({"container":"#smp-14482908049710","pid":"p02qyf2y","playerSettings":{"delayEmbed":true,"externalEmbedUrl":"http:\/\/www.bbc.co.uk\/programmes\/p02qyf2y\/player"}}); }); If all else fails…

Call the Doctor. Leap into one of these blue boxes (bottom right) and demand to be shown all of time and space. But remember to be back on your sofa for 8.15pm on Saturday with your TV set tuned into BBC One! It’s going to be awesome..!

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!

#rufuscam

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!

You must enable javascript to play content require(['smp'], function(SMP) { new SMP({"container":"#smp-14481396038484","pid":"p035x4zr","playerSettings":{"delayEmbed":true,"externalEmbedUrl":"http:\/\/www.bbc.co.uk\/programmes\/p035x4zr\/player"}}); }); A way back for Captain Jack?

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.

You must enable javascript to play content require(['smp'], function(SMP) { new SMP({"container":"#smp-14476815042951","pid":"p035cv4y","playerSettings":{"delayEmbed":true,"externalEmbedUrl":"http:\/\/www.bbc.co.uk\/programmes\/p035cv4y\/player"}}); }); The Girl Who Lived

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.

#Maisiecam

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!

Play Something Nice!

The Doctor Who Game Maker isn’t just about making games… You can just play games if you prefer! Don’t know where to start? Easy! Check out some of our fave games featuring Missy!

Knightmare Scenario

Finally, we looked ahead to The Woman Who Lived with this brand new trailer for episode 6!
