Twice upon a time
Well, regardless of your opinion of the forthcoming regeneration, this Christmas will give us one final adventure with the Twelfth Doctor. Not only is this story going to feature a regeneration, which is always exciting, it will also be a multi-Doctor story, again always exciting, and without precedence in a regeneration story, beyond the two Doctors each side of the regeneration.

Rather than spoil things for you here, if you want to know more, visit the BBC site for the story and trailer, which reveals at least one other surprise returning character.

But if you want my interpretation of what we might be about to see, read on...

The rules of regeneration
Well it’s that time again, casting a new Doctor, and of course we have the usual objections, even though some people seem to think “It feels different this time” (The Caves of Androzani (1984)) that some way it’s against the rules, so this article will examine what rules are out there, what’s been broken, and look at the objections.

Disney and Doctor Who
Listening to the TV in the background while my kids are watch the past two weeks there has been two references to Doctor Who. Now like most kids my kids will rewatch the same shows over and over so somehow I missed these. The first is “Mr. Young Mr. First Impression” season 3 episode 18 3/12/13. In this one the TARDIS makes a cameos. In “Liv and Maddie Brain-A-Rooney” season 1 episode 8 11/10/13 (the same year) Liv makes a reference to the Doctor with the line “He said Doctor Who?” when discussing if another student believed in time travel. Not sure if there are any other references on any other Disney shows.
On October 30, 2012, Disney announced a deal to acquire Lucasfilm for $4.05 billion which just a few months before the show aired. I checked this out and found that in May ...Read more

The Master Villain
So, this weekend we will have our first story to see one Master face off against another incarnation in Season 10’s finale. We’ve seen it with Doctors, but never with different Master’s, at least not on screen anyway, so you would hope we’ll be in for a treat.

But who is the Master and what do we know about him/her? Get ready for the season finale, spoiler free, by catching up on the Master’s back story. Read on...

Dr Who Finale - Thoughts
Apologies for not having my finale review up last week. A bad case of the flu then a full week of work put paid to that!

It’s a bit late now for a review. So, rather than that, I’ll just pop down some thoughts on what I thought of the finale and how I see things moving forward for Doctor Who’s new season.

Well. That was a surprise. My thoughts last week on how they shot Bill, were right. I did a search on Twitter and the #BuryYourGays hashtag was in full mobilisation. They took the risk to kill off the LGBTQ character despite seeing how negatively this trope is received in fandoms. I did think they would do something different to save Bill this week but, I guess having Star Girl save her and the two of them disappear off together, into the sunset, with the ...Read more

Dr Who - 'World Enough and Time' Review - Holy Heck - What a Cliff-Hanger!
Well, the penultimate Dr Who of this current season has aired and what a cliff-hanger! My initial tweet after seeing the show was along the lines of ‘Holy C***!’

And that wasn’t because of the very odd episode title …. The episode was a doozie!

I’m now not sure whether to believe Capaldi’s Doctor will regenerate at the end of this series, whether he’ll change next week, or whether that whole pre-credits scene will play out at the very end of next week’s finale and be continued in the Christmas episode.
I’ll quickly run through the story. The Tardis lands on a 400-mile-long colonisation ship with numerous floors each apparently representing some kind of environment, by the look of it. The ship had sent out a distress signal and the Doctor wants to use this as a test for Missy, to see how she can ...

The Time War Rages On - Return of the War Master
Though we mourned the loss of Sir John Hurt earlier this year, and quite possibly with him the end of any more Big Finish Time War stories, it may have seemed like the end, but the moment had been prepared for.

Another Knight of the Realm is about to join the Time War.

Hidden History 10.2 - Pilots & Smiles
The Hidden History series of articles don’t review the episodes, or even outline the plot (though they might give things away), what these articles are for is to show you the depth of continuity woven into the stories, to see how each new story relates back to previous episodes in the recent and long distant past of Doctor Who.

The 2 Christmas episodes were dealt with in Part 1, and boy what a lot of hidden history we had in those 2 stories. Now to deal with Season 10 for real, to look at what the story was behind the story of the first 2 episodes The Pilot and Smile.

"I'm the Doctor, run for your life!"

A UK television staple, Doctor Who was revamped for the 21st century by the BBC, bringing the show back in 2005 after its cancellation in 1989. The Ninth Doctor (Christopher Eccleston) came and conquered but died saving the universe and his companions from the cursed Daleks. Regenerating for the ninth time, the Tenth Doctor (David Tennant) brought more secrets and dark sides of this universe. Past, Present, Future and beyond! After regenerating to once again save the life of a trusted companion, the Doctor (Matt Smith) is now on his eleventh incarnation. With new friends Amy Pond (Karen Gillian) and Rory Williams (Arthur Darvill), a newly revamped TARDIS inside and out, the Doctor is ready for more adventures in time and space. The Eleventh Doctor (Matt Smith) regenerated to become the Twelfth Doctor (Peter Capaldi).
