New Doctor Who Trailer

The BBC has released another trailer for the new series, starring Peter Capaldi as the new Doctor, starting on Saturday 23rd August.

Entitled “I See Your Soul…”, the trailer sees the TARDIS control room blowing up and the Doctor seemingly being electrocuted to the point we can see his two hearts beating with Dalek voices talking over the top. Watch the trailer for yourself here:

What do you think of the trailer? What do you think is going to happen in the next series? And what could the Daleks be up to this time? Don’t be afraid to drop a comment below.

New Who Companion Revealed

Clara and the new Doctor are getting a new friend to join them in the TARDIS. BBC News are reporting that Samuel Anderson, who has previously appeared in Gavin & Stacey and Emmerdale, will play Danny Pink, a teacher at Coal Hill School with Clara. Little is known about Anderson’s character but Anderson himself  has said:

“I was so excited to join Doctor Who, I wanted to jump and click my heels but I was scared I might not come down before filming started. It’s a quintessential part of British culture and I can’t believe I’m part of it. It’s an honour to be able to work alongside Peter Capaldi and Jenna Coleman and I can’t wait to show people how my character becomes involved with such a fantastic duo.”

Episodes four and five are currently being filmed of series eight.

Derek Landy talks about his Doctor Who short story!

As many of you will know by now, I am a big Derek Landy and Skulduggery Pleasant fan so discovering that he has written a Doctor Who story for my favourite Doctor (10/David Tennant), I was super excited. I think you can guess just how excited I was to find an interview with him discussing the story, how it developed and the obligatory whether he would go backwards or forwards in time.

Check out the interview here:

The short story has been written as part of a collection of short stories, one for each Doctor, by different big name authors in preparation and as part of the 50th Anniversary celebrations for Doctor Who.
