FIND OUT HOW RIVER SONG MEETS THE EIGHTH DOCTOR – IN THE NEW ISSUE OF DOCTOR WHO MAGAZINE!
 Doctor Who Magazine #495

Doctor Who Magazine finds out what happens when River Song runs into the Eighth Doctor in the new audio series The Diary of River Song – and interviews both Paul McGann and Alex Kingston!

“River has to interact with the Eighth Doctor to save him, to help him,” explains Alex. “When she’s figured out how she can do that without having to be physically present in front of him, alongside helping him, she can then tease and flirt a little bit, because she knows she’s safe, and she knows she hasn’t overstepped a boundary, or changed his or her future in any way by that actual physical interaction. So she can then have fun! She’s in control.”

And what does the Eighth Doctor make of River?

Big Finish to say: Elementary my Dear Doctor! (no not Watson)

Fan’s want it, Moffat teases it while Gatiss say’s NO!

But finally we’ve got get the Doctor and Sherlock teaming up! (just perhaps not the Doctor or the Sherlock you were thinking of)

Big Finish is Wholocked?Continuing their adaptations of Virgin’s New Adventures, Big Finish have teamed up McCoy’s 7th Doctor and Nicholas Briggs Sherlock  in  Doctor Who: All-Consuming Fire

The two heroes unite to investigate a sinister intelligence lurking on the streets of 1887 London, aided by their faithful companions Ace (Sophie Aldred), Bernice Summerfield (Lisa Bowerman) and Doctor John Watson (Richard Earl).

Big Finish has an excellent series of Sherlock stories so this should be a juicy encounter indeed.

Big Finish’s ‘The Omega Factor’ in BBC 4’s 2016 Audio Drama shortlist!

The highly recommended, and down right terrifying, audio drama ‘The Omega Factor: The Old Gods’ has been short listed for Best Online Only Audio Drama by the BBC.  You can buy the box set, with Louise Jameson and Terry Molloy, here.

Omega Factor

The end times are coming!?! Or everything old will be new again.

With Peter Capaldi and show runner Steven Moffat both talking about their respective exits this week (here and here)  it’s starting to look like S11 will see a new Doctor and production team.  At this time S10’s air date hasn’t been confirmed but with a later start to production it’s either going to be split between 2016/17 or air in 2017 (probably back in it’s Easter slot). Capaldi Rocks

Although some may take Peter’s comments about this being his last year as meaning he’ll regenerate in the Xmas Special.  We hope not as Capaldi’s Doctor took it to another level this year and he deserves at least one more full season.

As always with Doctor Who the exit of the old team means the entrance of the new team and a big shakeup to the show.  Could this be the time for the first female Doctor?

Doctor Who Novel Adaptations 8 – All Consuming Fire

Now, I am famously not a fan of the crossover. I find having characters from multiple different fictional universes interacting in each others’ spaces achieves little more than breaking two fourth walls at once, if I may stretch that metaphor beyond what is fashionable numerically.

Similarly, I’ve said long and often how much I dislike the part-performed, part-narrated sort of audio play that Big Finish typically puts out in its First and Second Doctor ranges. In this case, it’s the jerk of tense-change that breaks the fourth wall for me, pulling me right out of the story.

So it came as something of a surprise that the eighth outing in Big Finish’s Doctor Who Novel Adaptations range – Guy Adam’s part-performed, part-narrated adaptation of Andy Lane’s Who/Holmes crossover All Consuming Fire, with up to three of its fourth walls missing – is so very, very, very bloody good indeed.

I think partly this works because the (part-)narration style is absolutely correct for one of its canons. Since the original Holmes  stories were narrated by Watson, having Watson do the same here feels perfectly fine; and the addition of a few other voices to the task of narration similarly doesn’t seem at all out of place.

The meeting of two canons, my other bugbear, is also a (surprisingly) effective thing. The mercurial Seventh Doctor is perfect in Holmes’s world, confounding the latter with an equal intellect but far more humour throughout, as is his wont, in a manner that leaves the Great Detective utterly baffled.

Big Finish – Torchwood 1.4: One Rule

After last month’s trek 5 years beyond Miracle Day, it’s back in time for One Rule and a pre-Battle of Canary Wharf Yvonne Hartman.

BF TW 104 One Rule

Director of Torchwood One in London, we last saw Yvonne in the Army of GhostsDoomsday two-parter, (if you’re not familiar, now’s a good time to check out the two episodes… done? Yes, it is a striking resemblance between Martha and her cousin!) so she’s possibly not be the most expected choice of episode star for this series. It’s also the first time that Yvonne has appeared in a story under the Torchwood banner, so does One Rule manage to keep consistent quality with the previous stories?

The Flash 2×09 – Running to Stand Still

flash2x09After last week’s two-part pseudo Justice League crossover with Arrow, we’re briefly back with the home team again before the mid-season break, in an episode which echoes back to the days of the Batman TV show with a good old multi-villain team-up. (more…)

Doctor Who Am I- A new documentary about American Doctor Who Fans!

We spoke recently to Matthew Jacobs and Vanessa Yuille about their current project, a documentary about American Doctor Who Fans called ‘Doctor Who Am I’. (listen here).  You can also watch them tell you about their film below.

Matt was the writer of the Doctor Who TV Movie but kept some distance between himself and fandom after the movies critical reception with some fans.  Recently he was invited to a fan convention and this documentary charts him being reintroduced to Doctor Who fandom.  It also looks in detail at American fans of the show, something that’s not been looked at this way before.

If you want to find out more about ‘Doctor Who Am I’ you can read more on it’s website: http://www.doctorwhoami.com/

You can also help crowd found the document via their Indigogo campaign.

Filming began in February 2015 at the Gallifrey One Convention in Los Angeles with  additional interviews with fans  shot over the summer and  at the Long Island Who Convention in November.  It’s due for release next year to tie in with the 20th anniversary of the TV movie.
