Doctor Who?

The temptation of Mr Smith

“Again, the devil took him to a very high mountain and showed him all the kingdoms of the world and their splendor. 9 “All this I will give you,” he said, “if you will bow down and worship me.” (Matthew 4) In “School Reunion” (series 2/3) Tennant’s Doctor Who certainly meets a devil of a temptation!

Escape from the Planet of the Dead?

  CARMEN: Something is coming. Riding on the wind, and shining. DOCTOR: What is it? CARMEN: Death. Death is coming.   After stealing an ancient chalice from a London museum, Lady Christina de Souza slickly escapes by jumping on a #200 bus. Co-incidentally, the Doctor, who is tracking a worm-hole, boards just before the bus […]

New Anniversary trailer

There seem to be a multitude of official and unofficial trailers for the upcoming specials. This one seems BBC made, and has some great still 3D images! Enjoy.

The Peter Capaldi era begins . . .

Though I have no “bluebox parable” to share today I thought I’d stop in to show you an amazing potential opening sequence for the Peter Capaldi era of Doctor Who. I’m pretty sure it is not a BBC certified production – just something a clever fan has whipped up (or slaved over for hours or […]

‘No eye has seen…no mind has conceived…’

Doctor Who first appeared at 17:16:20 GMT on 23 November 1963, stepping, not quite fully formed, from the minds of his creators, Sydney Newman, Donald Wilson and Cecil Webber, assisted by Anthony Coburn, David Whitaker and Verity Lambert. Fifty years on, the Doctor’s personal pantheon has grown beyond eighty (writers credited in episodes for television). […]

Wilfred at the heart of coincidence: The end of time!

I had a grandad called Willfred. He was lots of silly fun. He let you mess up his hair, and punch him in the stomach, and laugh at his silly sayings and doings. But he would also give you lots of attention. There were endless games and unhurried walks on the beach. He would give […]

An Ode to the Universe

This comes from Doctor Who at the Proms 2009. Lovely! Everyone has music inside of them, and a soul, according to the Doctor. How’s yours going?

Missing the Doctor…

Whovians everywhere are digesting the news that Matt Smith, the 11th incarnation of the Doctor, is to leave the show; a bitter pill for many, a sweet release for some, but we are all asking the same question, ‘Who now?’. Will #12 be younger or older, male or female, blond, brown, grey, or ginger at […]

Fire and ice

The beautiful scars that save

“What’s that?” “What is the light?” “It’s beautiful!” Doctor: “The tracks of my tears . . . Time travel is damage, like a tear in the fabric of reality. That is the scar tissue of my journey through the universe, my path through time and space, from Gallifrey to Trenzalor. . .  My own personal […]
