Doctor Who


The Doctor and Clara face their Last Christmas

BBC - Doctor Who - Tue, 11/25/2014 - 7:38am

The BBC Media Centre has released details of the BBC’s Christmas Schedule. And there’s some intriguing news in there for Doctor Who fans!

According to the Press Release:

‘In Doctor Who, the Doctor and Clara face their Last Christmas. Trapped on an Arctic base, under attack from terrifying creatures, who are you going to call? Santa Claus!’

Will this really be the Last Christmas for the Doctor and Clara? And what exactly are these terrifying creatures? It’s not the first time the Doctor has visited the Arctic of course. It’s previously been home to an Ice Warrior in Cold War - and the Cybermen! Perhaps there are clues to be found if you watch the teaser for the Christmas episode. You can also catch this exclusive clip for Children in Need.

As Danny Cohen, Director of Television, says: “This year's Christmas line-up on BBC Television is one of our best ever. There's world-class talent, edge of your seat drama, outstanding comedy and fantastic storytelling. Across our channels we will bring families together and provide something for everyone.”

The episode will star Peter Capaldi, Jenna Coleman, Nick Frost, Michael Troughton and Nathan McMullen – along with a host of guest stars. You can read more about the BBC’s Christmas Schedule on the Media Centre website.

A host of familiar Doctor Who names to appear in Atlantis

BBC - Doctor Who - Tue, 11/11/2014 - 5:01am

Sarah Parish as the Empress in The Runaway Bride.

Doctor Who may have finished for a few weeks but don’t despair, a host of familiar faces from Doctor Who will be appearing in the new series of Atlantis which starts this Saturday…. A year has passed and much has changed. With Minos dead, Ariadne is Queen and finds herself at war with her old adversary: Pasiphae.

Expect high-octane action adventure as Jason, Hercules and Pythagoras are thrust into the heart of politics and power in the city. With richly serialized storylines and complex character arcs, this is a darker, more dangerous time for our heroes: A New Dawn.

Sarah Parish (The Runaway Bride) returns as Pasiphae and Ken Bones (The Time of the Doctor and The Day of the Doctor) reappears later in the series as Melas.

You may also recognise newcomer to Atlantis, Amy Mason, from Torchwood. She plays Medea, Pasiphae’s niece.

Look out for other Doctor Who names including Robert Pugh who played Tony Mack in Cold Blood and The Hungry Earth, Peter De Jersey (The Day of the Doctor) and Ronald Pickup who starred in the 1964 episode, The Tyrant of France.

Atlantis returns 20:30 this Saturday, 15 November on BBC One.

BBC - Doctor Who - Sat, 11/08/2014 - 4:00pm

Death in Heaven proved to be an epic finale packed with surprises, stunts and emotional moments so big that we needed a bumper episode of Doctor Who Extra to do it justice!

If you’re a fan of Missy, this week’s episode is unmissable! Michelle Gomez discusses what it was like to play the self-confessed ‘Queen of Evil’, Steven Moffat tells us how she was cast, costume designer Howard Burden reveals how the Time Lady got her sartorial look and Peter Capaldi gives us his unique take on the Doctor’s former friend.

There’s also an exclusive interview with Samuel Anderson and Jenna Coleman who look back on Danny and Clara’s farewell scenes plus Ingrid Oliver admits how she felt when reading the script to discover that her character - Osgood – was killed in the adventure! Jemma Redgrave (Kate) talks about playing opposite the Cybermen and there’s even time for a potted history of the Master/Missy.

Doctor Who Extra: Death in Heaven is available on BBC iPlayer right now!

But if you can’t catch it online it’s available via Red Button during the times below.

Saturday: 8.55pm-10.30pm
