You get inside 1981’s warrior gate and you find out how to have a Doctor Who wedding.

In an exclusive interview Clare Higgins explains why Ohila might really be the Doctor’s mother.

Autistic journey with Christopher Eccleston

As part of the preparation for his role in The A Word, playing a grandfather of a child with autism, Christopher Eccleston has an emotional discussion with Gerard Groves, an autistic filmmaker and confirmed Whovian. The video is a heart-warming, funny, emotional behind the scenes footage when Gerard Groves interviewed the man who inspired him to make films.

TARDIS control & computer room

There are lots and lots of skilled Whovians ready to knock up a police box as a shed, or a cake, or the front of their wardrobe. Or even an item in their yard.

The Todd, for instance, has spent over a year creating a TARDIS in his back garden that contains a console that actually serves as a serviceable work desk, complete with hidden keyboard, DVD-drive, screen and flux capacitor.

Meet the cast of Class, the Doctor Who spin-off

It’s a little late, the introductions were made last week (when filming has started), but, anyway, let’s meet the again: Patrick Ness introduces you to the cast of Class, the Doctor Who spin-off coming later this year from BBC Three.

The new series was written by YA author Patrick Ness, it is set in Coal Hill School, where the Doctor Who story started in 1963, and most recently the educational establishment where Clara Oswald met Danny Pink.

Class star Greg Austin is delighted with his new job. 😀

Series 10 – Join the Doctor on BBC One Trailer

“All of time and all of space, in a big blue box.” It won’t be quiet, it won’t be safe and it won’t be calm but it will be the Trip of a Lifetime! Soon someone’s life will be turned upside down as they join The Doctor in the TARDIS for a universe of adventures in space and time. We will have to wait until the next year for series 10 but until then let’s enjoy this fan-made trailer.

The Silurian file

This article is about the Silurians (or homo reptilia, as they are also known): their history, TARDIS Index Files, revies, interviews, and so on.

Here’s all you need to know about the history of the Silurians (and Madame Vastra) over the last 46 years of appearances in Doctor Who. You can get this exclusive Silurian illustration by Titan Comics artist Rachael Stott, available for FREE as a desktop and mobile wallpaper here.

Who Are The Silurians? The TARDIS index file tells you several data about the monsters of last month.

The guys from the fan show try a Silurian review: they discuss the first story, Doctor Who and The Silurians. With Christel Dee, Luke Spillane, Simon Guerrier and Jenny Lippmann.

Neve McIntosh & Lindalee Rose talk about Doctor Who: Lindalee invades the tea-time of Silurian detective Madame Vastra at the Gallifrey One 2016 Doctor Who convention in Los Angeles. What do you think is the future of the investigative team of Vastra, Strax and Jenny (aka the Paternoster Gang), will the much talked about spin-off show become a reality, and what sort of Sonic would Madame Vastra have?

The War Doctor – Infernal Devices

Three new audio battles for the War Doctor, from Big Finish productions.


2.1 Legion of the Lost by John Dorney

In a time of war, every means of victory must be explored. In the Time War, the unthinkable must be thought, and neither side can afford to be squeamish about their methods.

When the destruction of an obscene weapon leads to the Time Lord once known as the Doctor uncovering a secret Gallifreyan initiative, he cannot believe what is being considered.

Should victory be sought at any cost? Or are there worse possibilities than losing to the Daleks..?

2.2 A Thing of Guile by Phil Mulryne

The Daleks are developing a secret weapon on Asteroid Theta 12. It is imperative that their plans are uncovered.

Cardinal Ollistra has her hands full studying the range of ancient and mysterious armaments the universe has to offer, but she makes it a personal mission to investigate the Dalek project.

On this dangerous assignment, there is one particular Time Lord she wants at her side – and he will be accompanying her whether he wants to or not.

2.3 The Neverwhen by Matt Fitton

On an isolated world ravaged by battle, time itself has become a weapon, laying waste to all who live and die there. Arms and technology are in a state of flux – and it seems that everlasting war is their only option.

The arrival of one battered Type Forty TARDIS inside this nightmare offers hope to the combatants trapped within.

But when he discovers the truth, the horrors of the Neverwhen will shock even the War Doctor…

Written by John Dorney, Phil Mulryne, Matt Fitton, directed by Nicholas Briggs.

Cast: John Hurt (The War Doctor), Jacqueline Pearce (Cardinal Ollistra), David Warner (Shadovar), Jamie Newall (Co-ordinator Jarad), Zoë Tapper (Collis), Robert Hands (Captain Solex), Oliver Dimsdale (Commander Trelon), Laura Harding (Navigator Valis), Barnaby Kay (Commander Thrakken), Jaye Griffiths (Daylin), Tim Bentinck (General Kallix), Tracy Wiles (Commander Barnac), and Nicholas Briggs as the Daleks.

Legs Nose Robinson – The hero of Gallifrey

The members of Legs Nose Robinson are pretty big fans of Firefly series. So for their latest music video, they decided to take The Hero of Canton and their own song The Doctor is a Ladies Man and meld them into a gloriously absurd and hilariously nerdy concoction.

Jayne, the man they call Janye…
He offers ’em time and he offer ’em space.
He never comes early, he never comes late.
Oh the ladies for him they will line up in rows,
The Doctor will see you now, everyone knows.

The Doctor is a ladies man, at least that’s what I’m told.
He’s got two hearts he’s twice the man, in ways you’ll never know.
Well, you might ask, “Doctor of what?”
But the truth is that nobody knows.
A suit too tight his hair a fright, and those Time Lord pheromones.

He offers ’em time and he offers ’em space.
He never comes early, he never comes late.
Oh from queens of the Nile, to Marilyn Monroe,
For him they will all line up in droves.

He takes them in his big blue box. He takes them for a ride.
He tells them tales of awe and fright, but most of them are lies.
(Lies, lies, lies!)
Once he gets inside your mind, he gets bigger don’t you know.
So please step back, no need to act, just watch that sonic go.


He offers ’em time and he offers ’em space.
He never comes early, he never comes late.
Oh the ladies for him ain’t hard to explain.
The hero of too many things to ever name.

The doctor’s a ladies man, the man they call…
John Smith.
“The Hero of Canton” from Firefly
“The Doctor is a Ladies Man” by Legs Nose Robinson
