Finally! A Full-Length Doctor Who Trailer with Peter Capaldi!

Here we go, guys! Our first GOOD look at Peter Capaldi as the Doctor!

Now, I have to admit, I haven’t been as obsessed with the upcoming season of Doctor Who as I have been in seasons past because I’m a little on the fence — and it’s no fault of Capaldi’s! I’ve been wanting a new Doctor after Matt Smith’s second and third seasons, and though Capaldi wasn’t the man I was hoping would take up the sonic screwdriver, I’m more than certain Capaldi will leave a great mark inside the TARDIS as his predecessors have!

The story-telling, however, I feel, has been taking a turn. Like Clara’s story…what the hell is her deal? How is she so capable in so little time? Why should we care? It’s a tiny gripe, but others such as this are starting to accumulate, and it’s because of this that I’ve decided to take a step back from the feverish love I have for the show. This season, I’m going in blind — knowing nothing about it until these episodes air.

I’ve spent so much time expecting awesomeness from previous episodes and almost always came off it a little let down. I grew frustrated with Matt Smith’s Doctor because the show went from the stories that hooked you in, to promoting how much a huge star Smith and Karen Gillan were becoming whilst on the show. Smith, of course, cast in Ryan Gosling’s upcoming directorial debut (is it a debut? I don’t even know anymore), and Gillan being cast as Nebula in Marvel Studios’ upcoming box office giant, Guardians of the Galaxy.

There’s nothing wrong with that, of course. Fantastic for them! I can’t wait to see more of them — though maybe not Gillan’s upcoming show on ABC. I don’t think that Selfie has what it takes to become a thing.

I think it’s time Moffat hand off the Doctor to someone else whose hands aren’t as full as his, and who probably isn’t as willing to throw himself in the spotlight when promoting the show. Moffat can then, in turn, concentrate on making Sherlock even more incredible than he’s already made it. Let someone else get back to the storytelling of Doctor Who!

The Twelfth “First Teaser” For the New Season of Doctor Who Is Here!

Doctor Who Series 8 Iconic

Okay, so there haven’t really been *that* many teasers, but you have to admit, they seem to be touting every screen appearance of Capaldi as some kind of first. His peekaboo in the big movie from last year was kind of a “first.” The big, live reveal was kind of a “first.” I like the guy well enough, but I’m not fully on board with the BBC/Moffatt’s Capaldi-marketing-strategy. Whatevs. I’m looking forward to Clara eventually going her own way and Capaldi getting a new companion who will really play to his strengths.  -hw

Karen Gillan’s Hair May Appear in Star Wars?

The ever-dorky and beautiful Karen Gillan was recently interviewed by Collider where the former Doctor Who companion revealed all that gorgeous red hair of hers, once shaved for the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy, was made into a wig and is now property of “the Star Wars people!”

COLLIDER: Was it just very liberating to shave your head, or did you have any moments of tears while they were doing it?

GILLAN:  No, I was laughing hysterically.  It really hit me when I woke up the next morning.  That’s when I was like, “Oh, my god, where’s my hair?!”  But also, everyone kept me in good spirit.  Everyone was laughing and telling jokes.  Marvel are the best company to work for, they really are.  They treat you really well.  They made my hair into the most incredible well-made wig and they gave it to the Star Wars people.  It’s just so funny to think that my hair is made into a wig, next to all these Star Wars monster heads in a warehouse.  I thought that was really funny.

Admit it, if you’re a fan of hers, you’re totally going to be keeping an eye out for red hair/wigs, aren’t you? Lord knows I am!

Read the rest of the interview at Collider and catch Karen’s latest horror flick, Oculus, which is in theaters tonight!

Doctor Who 2013 Christmas Trailer is Here!

Matt Smith’s reign as the Doctor is coming to a close and with it comes what promises to be an epic Christmas episode!

The Time of The Doctor certainly looks exciting but…I don’t know that I’m feeling it, actually.

I mean, yes, I’m just crazy about Matt and the 50th anniversary episode literally had me in tears, but I honestly think he should’ve left two seasons ago. We’ve been over-saturated — drowning with him as the face/identity of the Doctor for so long, and that’s what’s keeping me from being excited about his end.

I’m ready for a fresh breath of air. Let’s get Capaldi and his intense eyes here already!

We know, Matt. Us too.

Matt is looking like he just saw the cute aforementioned ginger. Same, Smith. Same.

Doctor Whogasm!

The 50th anniversary special is fast approaching and holyshitomgwtflol, the stuff the BBC is pulling out! Here’s a teaser of the special IN WHICH DAVID TENNANT WEARS A FEZ AND NOW I’VE LOST CONTROL OF MY BLADDER!!!!!

There’s even a little something for older fans of the series (though this isn’t too far of a stretch into the past. At all.) involving Paul McGann’s 8th incarnation of the Doctor! Squee! Also: …wut?

Matt Smith Filming in Detroit

Yes, ladies and germs, that is the one and only Doctor himself, Matt Smith, on location in Detroit filming Ryan Gosling’s How To Catch A Monster and sporting a shockingly new look!

It was no secret that Smith was cast as the lead in Gosling’s directorial debut (Note Gosling on the front passenger seat, behind the cameraman; the film also stars Eva Mendes and Christina Hendricks), what many weren’t expecting was the drastic change in Smith’s appearance! I have to say I never noticed how much Matt Smith’s ears stuck out but it’s cute! And, good Time Lord, does he look good with a buzz-cut!

Now, I may not be involved in the mainstream entertainment industry, but I DO know that certain actors and performers are strictly barred from changing their appearance whenever they want, especially those in television. This leads me to believe that maybe, just MAYBE, Matt Smith’s sudden haircut may be a spoiler for the Doctor Who 50th Anniversary special!

Meaning, if actors can’t drastically change their looks (and let’s be honest, part of Smith’s key identifier as the Doctor — bow tie aside — is the swoop of hair), could it be possible that Matt Smith’s Doctor will be regenerating some time during or at the end of the special?

I think so (especially after having read spoilers of the season 7 finale airing this Saturday) Then again, I could be embarrassingly wrong again. The last time I made a speculation involving the Whoniverse, I turned out to be completely wrong. If we recall, I thought the little girl we saw regenerate in a NY alley was a reintroduction of Classic Who villain, the Rani, turns out it was River Song before we knew she was part Time Lord (Lady?).

Either way, I’m excited for both Doctor Who and Smith’s involvement with Ryan Gosling! May the grody slash-fiction begin!
