BBC Worldwide in conjunction with Titan Comics released a Launch Trailer for their new line of Doctor Who comic titles featuring the Tenth and Eleventh Doctors:
Doctor Who: The Tenth Doctor #1: Gabriella Gonzalez is stuck in a dead-end job in her family’s New York laundromat, dreaming of college and bigger, better and brighter things. So when a strange man with an even stranger big blue box barges into her life on the eve of the Day of the Dead celebrations – talking about an infestation of psychic aliens – she seizes her chance for adventure with both hands.
Doctor Who: The Eleventh Doctor #1: Alice Obiefune has just lost her mother when the Doctor explodes into her life. But what does this grieving young woman have to do with the career of a 70s musician, an amnesiac alien, and a terrifying cosmic threat?
Both titles will be on sale in comic stores and online from July 23rd. More info here.
The creative team of Mitchell Tanis, Paul Mulder and Marissa Tanis collectively known as Bookshelf Productions have produced a stop motion animation recreating Doctor Who‘s 50th anniversary special The Day of the Doctor with Lego.
A new series and the debut of a new Doctor - I’ve heard they’re going in a darker direction this time.
In the “Weird Part of YouTube” Department, YouTube user lepoissonriuge uploaded this ridiculously bizarre yet entertaining “Japanese Doctor Who" parody with the vague description “Found a clip on old video tape 1970′s? 80′s?…like a Japanese version Doctor Who. Anyone?”
The 3-minute video (which can be best described as Doctor Who meets Power Rangers) depicts our hero, “Dr. Who”, walking pleasantly through the woods when an unusually leggy Dalek (named Dalekor) appears with his nefarious gang of “Cyber Men”. Immediately “Dr. Who” engages in a hilarious mock “kung fu” style fight, complete with less than stunning graphic effects. Thanks to his trusty Sonic Screw Sword, “Dr. Who” rises to victory.
As it turns out, the person responsible for the “Japanese Doctor Who Parody” is (as the Nerdist site discovered) a UK filmmaker named Joshua Kahan. Curiously enough, Kahan is adorably and cleverly modest about the cult-film success he is enjoying with his YouTube parody video.
Thank you @RCN_Schlaygs that’s very kind of you to say so but I put my cyberman costume on one leg at a time. Just like everybody else.— Joshua Kahan (@JoshuaKahan)July 9, 2014
Step into the ’80s with the Fourth Doctor and Romana in this series of Australian Prime Computer adverts from 1980 featuring Tom Baker and Lalla Ward.
The Radiophonic Workshop played Glastonbury’s Glade Stage last Saturday and their set included a rather familiar piece of music, namely the 1980 version of the Doctor Who Theme. The lineup featured Dick Mills, Peter Howell, Roger Limb, Paddy Kingsland and Mark Ayres.
The footage here was filmed by Rich Harris and Daniel Seller.
The BBC has released a new teaser trailer for Doctor Who Series 8 which returns on Saturday 23rd August.
More questions than answers once again: who does the mysterious voice belong to aside from the Daleks? Who is looking into The Doctor’s soul?
As well as chatting about his return as the 8th Doctor in The Night Of The Doctor, Paul talked Eighth Doctor spin-offs, the return of the Five(ish) Doctors, Peter Capaldi’s Twelfth Doctor, and why Tilda Swinton would have been a brilliant Doctor.
