Doctor Who


Nick Frost to guest star in Doctor Who Christmas Special

BBC - Doctor Who - Fri, 09/19/2014 - 7:05am

…And Natalie Gumede, Faye Marsay, Nathan McMullen and Michael Troughton will also join the Doctor (Peter Capaldi) and his companion Clara Oswald (Jenna Coleman).

Production on 2014's Doctor Who Christmas episode has begun, with a host of British acting talent set to appear. The Christmas Special, a cracker of a highlight in the festive season’s schedule, will air this Christmas on BBC One and promises to be an action-packed, unmissable adventure.

Nick Frost, actor and screenwriter, has starred in numerous hit film and television roles, including Spaced, The World’s End, Shaun of The Dead, Hot Fuzz, Cuban Fury and Paul, which he also wrote.

Nick comments: “I'm so thrilled to have been asked to guest in the Doctor Who Christmas Special, I'm such a fan of the show. The read-through was very difficult for me; I wanted to keep stuffing my fingers into my ears and scream 'No spoilers!' Every day on set I’ve had to silence my internal fan-boy squeals!"

Michael Troughton (Breathless, The New Statesman), who has recently returned to acting, will follow in his father’s footsteps by appearing in Doctor Who. His father, Patrick Troughton, played the second incarnation of the Doctor.

They will be joined by Natalie Gumede (Coronation Street, Ideal, Strictly Come Dancing), Faye Marsay (Pride, The White Queen, Fresh Meat) and Nathan McMullen (Misfits, Casualty).

Steven Moffat, lead writer and executive producer, says: “Frost at Christmas - it just makes sense! I worked with Nick on the Tintin movie many years ago and it's a real pleasure to lure him back to television for a ride on the TARDIS.”

The Doctor Who Christmas Special will air on BBC One. Written by Steven Moffat and directed by Paul Wilmshurst (Strike Back, Combat Kids), it will be shot in Cardiff at BBC Wales Roath Lock Studios.

Who Meets Heist

BBC - Doctor Who - Fri, 09/19/2014 - 2:46am

All the great Heist movies have a blend of humour, action, ingenuity and a certain audacity of style. The very best ones have you rooting for the rogues attempting the job, and Time Heist, written by Steve Thompson and Steven Moffat, is no different.

Except it is different, of course, because it’s Doctor Who! And so the bank in question is the most dangerous bank in the universe, one of the security problems is a terrifyingly powerful alien called the Teller and naturally, we have the Doctor himself at the heart of the action. It’s an irresistible combination and Douglas Mackinnon, director of last week’s beautiful episode, Listen, handles the adventure with wit and verve. A self-confessed fan of the heist genre, he ensures the episode is a hugely enjoyable fusion of Who meets heist.

The brilliant Keeley Hawes plays the mysterious Ms Delphox and is joined by Jonathan Bailey as Psi and Pippa Bennett-Warner as a shape-shifter called Saibra.

Time Heist is on BBC One on Saturday at 7.30pm but you can watch the episode being introduced by Peter Capaldi, Jenna Coleman and Steven Moffat now!

#MonstersWeMiss

BBC - Doctor Who - Mon, 09/15/2014 - 5:48am

Time Heist is one of those wonderful Doctor Who adventures full of strange new creatures and a rich assortment of aliens. And there’s at least one glimpse of some familiar foes as the trailer revealed brief shots of a Sensorite, a Terileptil and other monsters that we haven’t seen for a while.

Which got us thinking… What monsters do you miss? 

Enemies like the Daleks and Cybermen have been a recurring problem for the Time Lord over many years but is there a monster you loved that we haven’t seen for some time?

We’re after everything from the obvious to the obscure … Any monster that hasn’t featured in Doctor Who recently is fair game! Tweet your suggestions with the hashtag #MonstersWeMiss or email your thoughts to TheDoctor@bbc.co.uk with the subject header, #MonstersWeMiss or reply to one of our posts on our official Instagram account.

We’ll tweet photos of your most popular and creative suggestions on the show’s official twitter account - @bbcdoctorwho. And not only that, we’ll delve into our archive of behind the scenes photos and stills from past adventures and post them on our new Instagram account – bbcdoctorwho

So! Get tweeting us, emailing us or replying to our Instagram posts. Which monsters do you miss? Let us know!

Thank you!

The TARDIS crash lands on London’s iconic Parliament Square ahead of the Doctor Who series launch

BBC - Doctor Who - Fri, 08/22/2014 - 5:27am

In an explosive return to the UK from the world tour, the Doctor - Peter Capaldi - and his companion Clara Oswald, played by Jenna Coleman, made a surprise appearance this morning at the site of a specially constructed crash-landed TARDIS on London’s Parliament Square.

Ahead of the eighth series returning to BBC One this weekend, the theme of the crashed time machine was in keeping with the feature-length opening episode, entitled Deep Breath, which sees the Doctor arrive in Victorian London to find a dinosaur rampant in the Thames and a spate of deadly spontaneous combustions.

In front of the TARDIS and through the debris of dinosaur bones, the show’s transmission date can be seen emblazoned in the grass – Saturday 23rd August. Deep Breath airs at 7.50 PM.

BBC iPlayer launches exclusive Doctor Who Extra series

BBC - Doctor Who - Wed, 08/20/2014 - 4:11am

The BBC has today announced Doctor Who Extra - a brand new series, exclusively on BBC iPlayer. Doctor Who Extra is much more than a ‘making of’ show as we follow Peter Capaldi every step of the way throughout the creation of his first season as the Doctor. Over the course of 12 programmes we trace the highs and lows of Doctor Who’s most ambitious run of episodes yet, getting the inside take on series 8 from the people who made it.

The Doctor Who Extra team had unparalleled access to stars including Peter Capaldi, Jenna Coleman and Samuel Anderson (series regular Danny Pink) plus guests Frank Skinner, Keeley Hawes, Michelle Gomez, Ben Miller, Foxes and many more. Writers, such as Lead Writer and Executive Producer Steven Moffat, and directors also contribute as they spill the beans on the on and off-screen drama.

Casual viewers will enjoy the fun, fast pace and lighter side of Doctor Who Extra but there’s plenty for fans, too, as we take a quick dip into the archive for every edition, reflecting on how Doctor Who’s history is echoed in this current series.

Packed with emotion, great stories and a real sense of ‘access all areas’, Doctor Who Extra is essential viewing for everyone who’s ever watched Doctor Who and wondered what it’s a like to be a part of the team that brings this global phenomena to our screens.

Doctor Who Extra is produced by BBC Cymru Wales and executive produced by Steven Moffat, Brian Minchin and Jo Pearce. Each 10 minute Doctor Who Extra episode will be available after that week’s Doctor Who episode on BBC One.

*Audiences will also be able to access Doctor Who Extra via the BBC’s Red Button.
