Staircases in Space: Why Are Places in Science Fiction Not Wheelchair-Accessible?

Space, as we all know, is the final frontier. It’s the star-spangled playground in which our imaginations run amok, and the setting for stories that made us fall in love with sci-fi. Some of us spent hours pretending we were the Doctor’s companions, helping him find Gallifrey from the TARDIS. Some of us imagined the Millennium Falcon jumping to hyperspace when we shouted, “Punch it, Chewie!” Some of us swore we could hear the communicator beeping when we asked our favourite Federation starship to beam us aboard. The characters that roam space have built homes in our hearts and allowed those of us who are trapped in Earth’s gravity-well to fulfil some of our wildest fantasies. Space remains a vast, untamed place, penned in only by the limits of our own imaginations. Read More >>

The More I See the New Doctor’s Outfit, the More I Love It

When the Thirteenth Doctor’s rainbow-accented costume was first revealed, I was admittedly a little reticent. I didn’t dislike it, per se, but there was a quirkiness to it which made it stand out much more than the typical aesthetics of Doctor Who’s modern Time Lord couture. But the more and more we see of season 11, the more the ensemble really works. Read More >>

New Image Leaks Give us Our First Look at Doctor Who’s New Tardis

We don't know exactly when the 11th series of Doctor Who is set to arrive, other than the BBC's typically vague "autumn 2018". We've had our first proper non-leaked look at the series thanks to San Diego Comic Con, but there's still a lot we don't know yet. Things like what the Doctor's new Tardis looks like, because the 12th Doctor's regeneration caused it to blow up. Again. Read More >>

Is There a Better Individual Season of Doctor Who Than Tom Baker’s Debut? 

It feels like it’s been approximately 300 years since Doctor Who was last on the air, which has got me thinking about the classic show while waiting for the arrival of Jodie Whittaker’s new Doctor. And between Twitch’s ongoing marathon and its impending arrival on Blu-ray, I’ve been thinking: Tom Baker’s first season is bloody good. Read More >>

Doctor Who Archivist Still Thinks Some of the 97 Lost Episodes Can be Recovered

It's no secret that back during the 60s and 70s the BBC was a bit cavalier when it came to erasing classic shows. Tapes were expensive, and the BBC figured it was better off to erase old shows that it thought had little value than to buy brand new tapes. The most notable show affected was Doctor Who, and as it stands there are 97 episodes of the classic series that are seemingly gone for good. But one archivist thinks there's still a chance those episodes are out there. Read More >>

The BBC is Bringing All the New Doctor Who Episodes Back to iPlayer

Remember a couple of months ago when it looked like Netflix was set to remove Doctor Who from the British catalogue? Despite warnings flashing up when you watched an episode, the show didn't actually go anyway. At the time one of my theories was that maybe the BBC were hardballing so it could bring a proper Doctor Who boxset to iPlayer. While I don't know what happened behind the scenes, and why those warnings flashed up despite Netflix denying the show was going anywhere, the BBC has indeed brought its flagship sci-fi series back to iPlayer.
