Keeley Hawes to Star in Doctor Who

BBC - Doctor Who - Fri, 03/14/2014 - 4:27am

The BBC has issued the following press release:

Line of Duty's Keeley Hawes will join the cast of Doctor Who, following rave reviews for her outstanding performance as DI Lindsay Denton in the hit BBC drama.  Starring opposite the Doctor, Hawes will guest star for one episode in Peter Capaldi's first ever series as the Time Lord.      

Set to TX in the autumn this year, Hawes will play Ms Delphox, a powerful out of this world character with a dark secret.  Travelling across space and time the Twelfth Doctor (Peter Capaldi) and his companion, Clara Oswald (Jenna Coleman), will come face to face with the mysterious Ms Delphox when they arrive on a strange and puzzling planet.

Written by Steve Thompson (Sherlock) the episode will be directed by Douglas Mackinnon (Line of Duty, Doctor Who)

Commenting on her role, Keeley Hawes, said:

'I am delighted to join Doctor Who and to be working with this incredible team.  Ms Delphox is a great character and someone I've had a lot of fun playing.'

While lead writer and executive producer, Steven Moffat, added:

‘Anyone watching Jed Mercurio's amazing Line of Duty will know that Keeley Hawes is having one hell of year. And now it's about to get even better as she achieves the greatest villainy yet attempted on Doctor Who: she plays a banker.’

Doctor Who is a BBC Wales production for BBC One.  Filming is currently underway for the new series, which will introduce Peter Capaldi as the next Doctor for the first time to millions of viewers.

A Masterclass with the Man Behind the Monsters

BBC - Doctor Who - Tue, 03/11/2014 - 9:30am

Neill Gorton has created many of the memorable monsters who have featured in Doctor Who since its return in 2005 and on Saturday, 29 March he’ll be giving a free masterclass about his work!

Neill is a prosthetics designer and the director of Millennium FX, the BAFTA award winning make-up and special effects company responsible for the look of countless aliens who have crossed the Doctor’s path, as well as characters featured in BBC shows such as The Sarah Jane Adventures, Wizards vs. Aliens and Being Human.

The masterclass is part of BBC Radio 4’s Character Invasion, a fascinating project which combines an on-air celebration of how the characters we love have been created and bought to life, along with a day of free events across the country.

Neill’s masterclass will take place at Cardiff’s Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama and begins at 1.30pm on Saturday, 29 March. It will offer an amazing insight into how some of some of television’s most striking monsters and aliens are created using cutting edge prosthetics, animatronics and special make-up FX.

You can apply for a maximum of four tickets per household and can register for tickets at any time until Thursday, 13 March at 4pm. For more details, including how to apply for tickets, visit the event information page or find out more about BBC Radio 4’s Character Invasion.

Please note, those attending Neill’s event must be 8 years-old or over and under 16s must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

Steve Thompson Confirmed as Writer for Series 8 Episode

BBC - Doctor Who - Fri, 03/07/2014 - 11:29am

The man who put the Doctor aboard a cursed pirate ship and took us to parts of the TARDIS we’d never seen before has been confirmed as a writer on the forthcoming 8th series of Doctor Who.

Steve Thompson will write the as-yet-unnamed fifth episode of the series to be shown later this year.

It’s the third time the writer has penned a Doctor Who story, following last year’s Journey To The Centre of the TARDIS and 2011’s pirate adventure The Curse of the Black Spot.

Steve Thompson has also provided scripts for BBC1’s Sherlock such as The Blind Banker, series two finale The Reichenbach Fall and The Sign of Three which was broadcast in January.

Filming is underway on Peter Capaldi’s first series as The Doctor. He’ll be joined by Jenna Coleman as Clara and a new recurring character, Danny Pink played by Samuel Anderson. 

The new series, to be screened on BBC1, will also feature episodes by lead writer and series producer Steven Moffat.

Rising Star Joins Doctor Who for Peter Capaldi’s First Series

BBC - Doctor Who - Mon, 02/24/2014 - 3:22am

Samuel Anderson (The History Boys, Gavin & Stacey, Emmerdale) is set to join the cast of Doctor Who as a recurring character in series 8, which will also introduce Peter Capaldi as the Doctor to millions of viewers for the first time.  Anderson will play Danny Pink, a teacher at Coal Hill School where companion Clara Oswald (Jenna Coleman) also teaches. 

On joining the show Samuel Anderson 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!’

Steven Moffat, lead writer and executive producer, added: ‘For the fourth time in Doctor Who history, Coal Hill School is coming to the aid of the TARDIS. In 1963 teachers Ian Chesterton and Barbara Wright accompanied the First Doctor. These days it’s the turn of Jenna Coleman as Clara Oswald. And very soon now, Sam Anderson as Danny Pink will be entering the world of the Doctor. But how and why? Answers are coming later this year in Peter Capaldi’s first series of Doctor Who!’ 

Filming recently began on episode 4 of the new series which will co-star Robert Goodman (Gangs of New York, Game of Thrones) and episode 5, co-starring Jonathan Bailey (Broadchurch, Groove High), and Pippa Bennett-Warner (The Smoke, Death in Paradise).

After spending more than a decade in the wilderness, the programme was brought back into the fold and welcomed with open arms and critical acclaim. And yet, from time to time, us fans just can't resist the odd grumble when things don't quite go our way.Tim Worthington: Doctor Who And The Doctor's WifeAnother of those Doctor Who reviews that didn't make it into Not On Your Telly , and we're into the first couple of episodes of Series 6a or whatever it is we're calling it now.Tim Worthington: Doctor Who And The Night TerrorsThe last of the actual Doctor Who reviews left out of Not On Your Telly - though there's a couple of Who-related pieces still to come - and originally puntastically titled 'Dolly Part-One (Of One)', this review of Night Terrors was done pretty much as a favour for a fanzine editor, as by that point I'd long since started to tire of reviewing 'new' Doctor Who.Philip Sandifer: Writer: Outside the Government: Torchwood: Children of Earth: Day OneThe Last War in Albion will run tomorrow - scheduling snafu meant I failed to get it imaged up in time. Though frankly, this is not as dissimilar as TARDIS Eruditorum sometimes is. It's July 6 th, 2009. Cascada is at number one with "Evacuate the Dancefloor."Philip Sandifer: Writer: Outside the Government: Torchwood: Children of Earth: Day Twopreviously] It should, of course, be remembered that the character who makes this proposal, Denise Riley, is the same one who we're told is going to succeed the Prime Minister following Bridget's calm overthrow of him in the story's conclusion. Which is to say that the problem really pointedly is not Frobisher but the system he represents.Philip Sandifer: Writer: Outside the Government: Torchwood: Children of Earth: Day Threepreviously] It is here, then, we have to turn to Jack's sexuality. One of the most enduring discussions about Jack is the way in which his sexuality evolves over the course of the series, as he goes from a pansexual action hero to, steadily, an almost exclusively gay male figure - indeed, Barrowman, in at least one interview, describes the character as a gay man.Philip Sandifer: Writer: Outside the Government: Torchwood: Children of Earth: Day Fourpreviously] Reproductive futurism invests itself in a future without content. It has to, because the future is defined as the place where we don't live but where our children do. But Jack, as we said, does live in the future.Siskoid's Blog of Geekery: Doctor Who #809: The Day of the Clown Part 1"Boy, they have no idea what they're moving in over the road from."

Christopher Barry (1925 – 2014)

BBC - Doctor Who - Mon, 02/10/2014 - 11:07am

Christopher Barry (above, left), one of the stalwarts of early Doctor Who. We’re sad to report the death of Christopher Barry, one of Doctor Who’s most significant directors.

He will be remembered forever for directing the episodes that introduced the Daleks but he was also at the helm for many other pivotal stories including the crucial debut adventures of the Second and Fourth Doctors, as well as The Daemons the 1971 five-parter that is often cited as one of the show’s finest entries.

Christopher Barry also worked on a number of other high-profile series including The Tripods, Moonbase 3 and Out of the Unknown but in the 1960s he was an integral part of Doctor Who’s genesis. Writing about him on the site for An Adventure in Space and Time, we recently noted, ‘Barry must take much of the credit for some early, magnificent moments in the history of Doctor Who: the scene where the Daleks are finally revealed is perfectly executed with the audience at home sharing the mixture of emotions caught on the faces of the Doctor and his companions as they viewed the monsters for the first time. Even more powerful is the first confrontation between human and Dalek, shot from the latter’s point of view, meaning poor Barbara Wright’s reaction to the sight is at once terrifying and frustrating. We share her shock but desperately want to see whatever has triggered the young woman’s horror… Yet we must wait a week for the full reveal!’

We ended that feature with these words: ‘In recent years Christopher Barry has talked at length about his involvement in Doctor Who. A thoughtful and engaging speaker he remains something of a fan favourite, both for the wonderful stories he directed and his take on the show he did so much to develop.’

Read more about the career of Christopher Barry (1925 – 2014).

 See some brilliant scenes directed by Christopher Barry including the Doctor’s first meeting with the Daleks, five priceless moments from The Daemons and some wonderful exchanges from the adventure that introduced the Sisterhood of Karn: The Brain of Morbius.

Today's Featured PictureUnconfirmed. Do you like it?Doctor Who FansWhovian NewsDoctor Who: Sales of Peter Capaldi's Crombie coat skyrocketDoctor Who fans are yet to see a full episode starring Peter Capaldi's 12th Doctor - but the fashion-conscious Time Lord is already a trend-setter. The Doctor's new look caused quite a stir when it was unveiled last week, drawing comparisons with, variously, Jon Pertwee's third Doctor, Dracula and a magician, while one fashion commentator traced it back to the early skinhead movement.BBC - Blogs - Doctor Who - And the Winner of the 'Best Dressed Early Doctor' Goes To...The Doctor Who Team Straight after the unveiling of the new Doctor's costume we asked you to vote on a simple question: which of the early Doctors was the snappiest dresser?

Yes, it's like time travel actually exists.Doctor Who dog model stolen again as rival villages near Plymouth battle for custodyA METAL dog appears to be at the centre of a tug-of-war between rival villages after he was "stolen" for the second time within a week. Yesterday The Herald reported how the model of K9, Doctor Who's faithful companion, was taken from his home in Bere Alston and left in Tavistock before being returned by concerned residents.Doctor Who series 8: It's my childhood dream, says Ben WheatleyBen Wheatley has spoken for the first time about directing Doctor Who. The Sightseers filmmaker will helm Peter Capaldi's first two episodes on the BBC sci-fi drama, as first announced in October. Wheatley told that he is "achieving [his] childhood dreams" by working on Doctor Who series eight.Liam's hero Doctor Who has helped him open up to the world in ChelseaYOUNG Liam's brief life has been filled with a host of health and developmental problems but through his hero Doctor Who, he has found a way to finally open up to the world. The seven-year-old Chelsea Heights boy suffers from an arachnoid cyst in his brain, which affects his language and motor skills and gives him crippling bouts of anxiety.Whovian ExtrasSpringfield Punx: The 12th Doctor!Doctor Who's 12th Doctor (Peter Capaldi) Since the recent release of photos of Peter Capaldi's Doctor Who outfit, I've been asked repeatedly when this guy was coming... Well, you can stop asking now! Just joking :) I did him in some different poses, I even tried one that is sort of a tribute to that (infamous?)In Print Comic: IN PRINT - THE I FILES Part 5And with that the Hurt Doctor joins the cast. Of course this presents a few issues for the strip continuity, the most obvious being the accidental regeneration during ' The Great Costume Debacle', but rest assured I have a way round it and it'll be addressed later this year.planetzogblogSome thoughts on the costume of the Twelfth Doctor... "He's woven the future from the cloth of the past. Simple, stark, and back to basics. No frills, no scarf, no messing, just 100 per cent Rebel Time Lord." - Peter Capaldi commenting on the character he will portray on BBC One this Autumn.The 13 Scariest Monsters of 'Doctor Who'The Doctor has tackled horror staples like vampires, werewolves, zombies, and demons, but also hundreds of original foes from all over the galaxy. We now present the scariest of the bunch!Half TARDIS, Half Dalek Dress Is All AwesomeCan't decide whether you want a TARDIS dress or a Dalek Dress? Why not have both? This neat dress mashes up both. It's like the TARDIS collided with a Dalek and now they share the same space. This corset dress was designed by cosplayer Bewitched Raven and it is beautiful.How could Doctor Who take inspiration from Sherlock?As a new era for Doctor Who approaches, with Peter Capaldi taking the lead, something I've been seeing a lot around the site is people asking for a new change in how the show is written - a moodier Doctor and a slightly darker show are all suggestions that I see often.Doctor Who: 10 Mind-Blowing Uses Of Foreshadowing You Never NoticedDoctor Who has a reputation for the timey-wimey these days; fans generally nitpick their way through the series, looking for the smallest of clues that will lead the Doctor onto his next adventure. Really, it's magical that the writers drop in hints to keep us excited.Sarah Jane: The Adventures That Never WereElisabeth Sladen (1 February 1946 - 19 April 2011) It has been almost three years since Elisabeth Sladen lost her fight with cancer. Having grown up in the David Tennant era, from her very first New Who appearance I, like many others, immediately took a liking to Sarah Jane.Doctor Who: 10 Reasons Why An Adventure In Space And Time Was The Best Drama Of 2013Well, that was the 50th Anniversary Year, that was. Now that the dust has settled (a bit) and we can see the whole year in context, one thing becomes clear. An Adventure in Space and Time, while being the Anniversary Special that fandom cared the least about beforehand, was hands down the best drama of the year.What if... the Ninth Doctor was the War Doctor?Guest contributor Will Stanford examines what might have happened with the 2013 specials if Eccleston returned.Doctor Who: 10 Moments Of Mind-Blowing Unexpected Cruelty From The DoctorSince Peter Capaldi was revealed as next in line to play the Doctor, speculation arose that his incarnation would be a brash one, meant to contrast the whimsy of Matt Smith's eleventh Doctor. Many have expected Capaldi to bring his "The Thick of It" character Malcolm Tucker, a foul-mouthed media advisor, to his representation of the Doctor.Doctor Who: 5 Reasons the First Cybermen Were The ScariestI recently got a chance to see the newly released "The Tenth Planet" DVD, which featured an incredibly brilliant animated version of the missing fourth episode. Though a lot of people find the story to be a little slow and listless, a common complaint in many early serials, I consider the story to be not only brilliant but absolutely terrifying.A Brief Musical Tour Of Doctor Who - Look!

And the Winner of the 'Best Dressed Early Doctor' Goes To...

BBC - Doctor Who - Tue, 02/04/2014 - 6:32am

Straight after the unveiling of the new Doctor’s costume  we asked you to vote on a simple question: which of the early Doctors was the snappiest dresser? You voted in your thousands and the full rundown of results may surprise you…

The Fourth Doctor, played by Tom Baker, was the runaway winner, raking in 47% of the votes. His triumph in the sartorial stakes is understandable as his famous, multi-coloured scarf became iconic and emblematic of not just of his Doctor, but Doctor Who itself. He may have had several wardrobe changes but after his first season his overall look comprising long coat and looping scarf became consistent, often embellished with a battered brown hat, knee length boots and the occasional waistcoat. His appearance managed to remain distinctive without becoming bizarre. Bohemian, fun but never outrageous, his taste in clothes ensured he won this poll by literally thousands of votes. When the Fourth Doctor’s companion, Romana once donned a replica of his own familiar costume, he was the first to congratulate her. ‘That's exactly right!’ he told her.  ‘I never realised you had such a sense of style!’

The Third Doctor, played by Jon Pertwee, scooped second place after claiming 14% of the votes. Like the Fourth Doctor, his costume varied considerably during his time in the TARDIS. His largely colourless ensemble favoured in his early adventures gradually gave way to a more daring wardrobe full of bright velvet jackets and big black bowties. Little wonder that when the First Doctor himself gazed down on him during The Three Doctors, he quickly branded him a dandy!

The Fifth Doctor took third place with 12%. His outfit remained largely unchanged throughout his era – an old-fashioned, predominantly cream-coloured cricketer’s costume perked up with a stick of celery on his lapel. ‘Brave choice…’ The Tenth Doctor once remarked, ‘Not a lot of men can carry off a decorative vegetable!’

The Seventh Doctor, with his paisley scarf and tie, two-toned brogues and tank top covered in question marks notched up a creditable 10% of the votes, coming slightly ahead of the Sixth Doctor. Many people have commented on the garishness of his attire, but the combination of bright coat, yellow and black trousers and red spats was a favourite with some fans and brought the Sixth Doctor to fifth place in this poll.

The First and Second Doctors came in with 6% and 4% respectively, possibly because their costumes were so seldom seen in colour. You can check out all of the early Doctors’ outfits in our costume gallery and we’d like to say a massive thanks to everyone who took the time to vote: thank you!

And so finally, the complete rundown of results in our poll to find which of the early Doctors was the snappiest dresser is as follows:

 

1st: The Fourth Doctor (47%)

2nd: The Third Doctor (14%)

3rd: The Fifth Doctor (12%)

4th: The Seventh Doctor (10%)

5th: The Sixth Doctor (7%)

6th: The First Doctor (6%)

7th: The Second Doctor (4%)
