Making headlines with more supposition than surprise, we take apart this past week’s announcement that Chris Chibnall and Jodie Whittaker will be exiting Doctor Who in 2022 after no less than three special feature broadcasts.
We address the current rumor — and at present, nothing more than one — about Jodie Whittaker’s tenure on the program.
The official “Doctor Who Day” of 2019 brought us something we’ve been hoping to see on our holiday table for months, now: an action-packed trailer for the new series complete with guest appearances, adversaries old and new, famous historical figures, car chases, and plenty of explosions.
It’s about as official as we allow ourselves to be! If you’re planning on joining us in three (!) short weeks in New York for L.I. Who 5, along with 1,500-plus other crazy-excited Whovians, here are our hosted and/or moderated panels for the weekend, including our live podcast recording that is now becoming a legend in our own minds! Oh No, Who Didn’t! (Friday @ 1:00 pm, Program Room B) The fast-thinking, high-sarcasm Whovian game from Gallifrey Public Radio is back. A […]
As we eagerly await the premiere of Series 10, news comes to us from the BBC that hits us like the proverbial ton of bricks: Peter Capaldi will be leaving at the end of this season, exiting alongside showrunner Steven Moffat.

Already reeling from the weekend’s news regarding Moffat’s step down, Chibnall’s succession and the delay of Series 10 until Spring of 2017, American Whovians were dealt yet another unexpected blow — the loss of Doctor Who content (both “classic” and post-2005) from the major streaming services Hulu and Netflix. Both. At once. Until further notice. In a supplemental reaction cast, Jay and Keir look at the repercussions of this change on accessibility to the program for one of the largest […]
In what was the start of a wild weekend of unexpected news regarding Doctor Who, the BBC released a statement that with the airing of Series 10 of the revived program, six-year head writer and executive producer Steven Moffat would be stepping down from his position, and handing the reins over to Broadchurch showrunner Chris Chibnall.

In an unexpected and rather unusual social media announcement today, the BBC unveiled plans for a new YA series within the Doctor Who universe titled Class, with the familiar names Steven Moffat, Brian Minchin and author Patrick Ness as executive producers. Shooting in Spring of 2016, it will be set at the famous fictional Coal Hill School, where so much of Doctor Who both classic and new has taken place. We say “unusual” because in hinting that “huge news” was […]
