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.

Michael Dorn is ‘Encouraged’ About the Chances of a Worf-Centric Star Trek Series

Years ago Michael Dorn, better known a Worf in various iterations of Star Trek, came up with the idea to give the angsty Klingon officer his own spin-off TV series. The idea was pitched to Star Trek's home network CBS, but nothing ever came of it - despite Dorn expressing his hopes that the series may someday get made. Given the revitalisation of the franchise that's currently ongoing, what does that mean for Worf? Read More >>

Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Is a Yummy Cup of Witch’s Brew in Need of a Few More Ingredients 

As a 30-something woman who grew up with The Craft, Charmed, and (of course) Sabrina the Teenage Witch, Netflix’s Chilling Adventures of Sabrina feels like being a teen witch again. Only this time, it’s not magical pancakes or superhero costumes, it’s a dark exploration of Satanic worship and the horrors of the patriarchy. The show isn’t perfect and has problems it may never outgrow, but it is a helluva ride. Hail Satan! Read More >>

Don’t Blink: Jodie Whittaker’s Doctor Who Wax Figure Is Watching You

That’s not a picture of Jodie Whittaker, Doctor Who’s new star, up there. Seriously. It’s a wax recreation so good that even the Nestene Consciousness itself would be a bit jealous of the handiwork behind it. Read More >>

The First Counterpart Season 2 Trailer Reveals New Faces and Old Problems

The Amazon Prime show Counterpart, aired on the streaming platform's Starz Play channel, is about a world that exists next to another, identical world. Well, almost. There’s the dimension we take to be the real one in addition to an alternate version where people look just like us, but have an entirely different agenda. When season two of the show kicks off, the main character, and his counterpart, are in a very confusing circumstance indeed. Read More >>

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. Jodie Whittaker’s first trip to an alien world gave us some of that mystery back, for the show and for the Doctor. Read More >>

Star Wars Resistance Just Made Us Look at the Franchise in a Whole New Way

When you’re watching a Star Wars TV show or movie, it’s easy to think what’s happening on screen is the most important thing imaginable. What could be more important than defeating the Empire, becoming a Jedi, or crushing the First Order? Maybe nothing – but what you tend to forget is, while that may be important to some, it’s not important to all. Read More >>

UK Broadcasters Want the Government to Force Streaming Services to Prioritise Their Content

If you have a subscription to a TV service like Sky, Virgin, or whatever else, chances are you will have noticed that all the old 'terrestrial' TV channels are always first - no matter what service you actually subscribe to. That's because the government says they have to, and now those same broadcasters are arguing that the same should be true of all these fancy new streaming services we've taken a liking to.

Doctor Who’s Gallifrey Would Be a Nightmarishly Awful Place to Live

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.
