Yaz Finally Steps Into the Spotlight for a Poignant Doctor Who

One of the many changes brought to Doctor Who this year is more companions than a dimensionally transcendental phone box knows what to do with.

I Think I’m Ready for Doctor Who to Stop Proving That It’s Still Doctor Who

Despite being a programme about change, there’s always a certain amount of trepidation in Doctor Who when any amount of it happens, whether it’s just a new monster or a whole new Doctor.

Another Tiny Slice of Doctor Who’s Missing History Will Get an Animated Revival

So much of Doctor Who’s early past is lost to time – not in the romantic, time-travel sense, but in that old BBC archival policies meant that the original records of the earliest years of Who in the ‘60s were wiped, leaving nearly 100 episodes seemingly gone forever. But one tiny slice of vintage Who is getting a revival next month. Read More >>

Doctor Who’s Christmas Special Might Become a New Year’s Special

Regardless of how you feel about Doctor Who and its many iterations since the 2005 relaunch, we can all agree that the Christmas specials are universally shit.

How I Learned to Love the Doctor Who Companion

Back in 2015, a single image convinced me I would never watch Doctor Who. An older man running away from a giant explosion, pulling along a much-younger woman gazing at him in pure adulation. It exemplified everything that frustrated me about gender representation in film and TV. I’ve since learned the ways of the Whovian — and while I still have concerns, which I’m hoping the new season addresses, I’ve come to see the strength in the modern Doctor Who companion.

This Week’s Doctor Who Gave Some ‘Who’ Back to the Doctor

Much of Steven Moffat’s era of Doctor Who was dedicated to solving the mystery of the Doctor – why the name, where’s Gallifrey – and putting answers to that central conceit of who the Doctor is, and what they stand for.

The Doctor, the eponymous star of Doctor Who, doesn’t visit her homeworld very often. This isn’t just because the Time Lords are an irascible bunch; after consulting with several Who-obsessed scientists, it’s clear that Gallifrey is less like the strangely habitable planets of Star Wars and more like the worst place in the universe to live.
