Get a Dose of the Doctor...

Peter Capaldi as the new Doctor


With Doctor Who coming back on August 23rd, I wanted to start indoctrinating sharing all things Doctor Who related.



The Geek Twins Shared an infographic
50 Things Every Doctor Who Fan Should Know


The Doctor Who World Tour began and here some the pictures Via Doctor Who News.














Here is a BBC news video for the World Tour Kick off with Clips from the second episode. 
*EDIT* 
Added second longer video from BBC Breakfast






For those that know me well, they know I like to watch Cartoons. Now this isn't strange coming from a father of two, but I've been watching my whole life. With that being said this next clip is The Animated Adventures Of Doctor Who. It is set in the style of Gravity Falls , which makes it all the more fun to watch. I can't get the video to play so click the link to see it. 


*EDIT*
You can also see it @
The Geek Twins 

The video is done by artist Stephen Byrne who also has done Firefly and Game of Thrones art. I like the video and this next picture he did. What if Disney did Doctor Who? 


The BBC has released an official synopsis for Episode 1 Deep Breath

Via BBC


‘When the Doctor arrives in Victorian London he finds a dinosaur rampant in the Thames and a spate of deadly spontaneous combustions. Who is the new Doctor and will Clara’s friendship survive as they embark on a terrifying mission into the heart of an alien conspiracy? The Doctor has changed. It’s time you knew him.’


Showrunner Steven Moffat promises more online Doctor Who episodes.


"We'll certainly do some more," he promised. "We'll do more prequels and stuff. I've been in to talk to the channel controller of iPlayer and say 'We need proper money for it', and they're very keen.
"And we don't call them prequels, we don't call them minisodes, we just call them Doctor Who. That's all they are. As I say, why not do an episode that's ten minutes? Or an episode that's half an hour? It depends what it suits."

I will leave you with a comic of the 12th Doctor watching Game of Thrones with Clara.

Are you excited for the new Doctor, and are you planning on watching it?

  7. Great recap! Adric's death was traumatic for me as a kid. And I may have written some fan fiction about the Fourth Doctor and Sarah Jane Smith that is best forgotten... ahem.

  10. Thanks for the shout out! I'm really excited about the Web shows because it almost guarantees we'll see more of the surviving Doctors. The new adventures of the War Doctor and McGann!

  15. I am so psyched for the new series. I know Capaldi is going to bring a lot to the role.

  16. I just can't stop smiling every time i see how he reacts to the public, especially the kids.

    ReplyDelete
  17. I don't think I can keep calm... so much waiting!

    ReplyDelete
  18. It is definitely hard to do.
    I blame the BBC for placing the series so far apart!

    ReplyDelete
  19. I think the new doctor looks good. He's handsome… I'd watch it just to stare at his face :) :) :)

    ReplyDelete
  20. I keep saying I'm going to watch some of these on Netflix then promptly forget and watch House of Cards or Orange is the New Black, instead. One day, one day, I'll actually watch Dr. Who.

    ReplyDelete
  21. After 50 years it is never too late to start. ;-)
    A new Doctor is always a great starting point.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Since I'm not a Dr. Who fan (only because I'm not familiar with him), I think I'll start with the Disney movie. That looks really fun.

    ReplyDelete
  23. That would be fun! Then Disney could start their plan for world domination!
    ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  24. A few new tidbits for me in there! I really need to go back and watch the older episodes at some point! Can't wait for the 23rd :)

    ReplyDelete
  25. I have collected the show since I was a kid, and it is so hard to see them all.
    The 23rd is around the corner!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Oh my gosh… Too old? No way. (Of course I've always had a thing for older guys, LOL…) He really is dashing… I want to see him in this!!!

    ReplyDelete
  27. This is great! I never realized there were people inside the Daleks! just like Kenny Baker and R2D2, but were the Daleks the source of inspiration for R2D2?

    ReplyDelete
  28. Thanks! R2 might possibility be. I have never read what the exact influence was.The design of R2D2 is credited to Ralph McQuarrie, who also designed Darth Vader, Chewbacca, and C-3PO.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Oh this is the doctor who post to end doctor who posts. Great one David! I love all these tidbits. That infographic is killer!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Thanks! The Geek Twins always find the things that I miss.

    Now that's what I call mission accomplished.... I feel brainwashed yet completely relaxed. Now all I need is find someone to turn all my excess wool into a scarf. Excellent post my friend. I hope you're doing fine.

  32. Thanks Blue. My only wish is that half my crazy rubs off on others!
