    @thane16 No, I’m not high, not an actor, and not a writer either. When I say I’m not a writer, I mean that I don’t write any short stories, books, or scripts, although I might be able to. My favourite TV programmes are “Doctor Who” and all Star Trek series except the animated ones. I’ve recently been watching some other series on Britbox, such as…[Read more]

    @janetteB it actually says “Gatwa will take control of the TARDIS as the fifteenth Doctor with his first episode airing over the festive period in 2023.” When people say “the festive period”, this means Christmas and New Year or the Twelve Days of Christmas. I don’t think for one moment that it means the return of the Christmas episodes. We were…[Read more]

    The Disney+ deal actually reduces the number of potential viewers for Doctor Who to approximately 150,000,000 in all the countries where they operate! Australia alone has nearly 26,000,000 people nowadays, while Canada has nearly 39,000,000. Do you expect most of them to subscribe to Disney+? If so, when might we see this sudden surge in Disney+…[Read more]

    @dentarthundert OK, here’s a revised version…

    DOCTOR WHO (2005) ENDS

    The BBC have confirmed in their usual ambiguous style (i.e. “having a rest”, “having a longer than usual wait”, etc) that the revived series of Doctor Who is ending. It nearly finished in 2021, but not many people noticed, due to deliberately confusing ambiguous statements…[Read more]

    @devilishrobby I can assure you that I AM a true Who fan! I’ve been watching Doctor Who since I was a little boy. Doctor Who is the only thing that remains in my life while other things keep changing, coming and going. My whole attitude is that Doctor Who must take priority for the actors playing The Doctor, as well as for the BBC. What this means…[Read more]

    DOCTOR WHO (2005) ENDS

    The BBC have confirmed that the revived series of Doctor Who is ending. It actually finished in 2021, but not many people noticed due to ambiguous statements from the BBC. There are now just a few specials left to show in 2023. These will be followed by a Disney+ funded new series, expected to be only six episodes long, in…[Read more]

  • @captainlando Jodie Whittaker was fantastic as The Doctor! Of course, whenever there’s a new Doctor I can’t help thinking if it really is The Doctor, but I certainly remember feeling in Jodie’s second episode “The Ghost Monument” that she was The Doctor, saying the type of things The Doctor would say.

    Unfortunately, lots of people started a…[Read more]

  • @Oblique

    Hidden news! As Doctor Who will be financed by and shown on Disney+ , doesn’t that mean that in future each Doctor Who series will be only six episodes long, as this is the standard length for a Disney+ series?

  • I’m sorry about all the HTML tags in my last post! I copied this post from my email after getting an error message there, but then added a few more words. Some time ago, I edited a message to remove the tags, but then found the message got hidden and I couldn’t repost it. Perhaps a moderator could remove the tags.

  • <div dir=”auto”>@Oblique The expression clean slate applied to Doctor Who may only be a rumour. I think what it might mean is The Doctor having all his memories wiped, then being left to wander round space and time without meeting any Daleks, Cybermen, The Master, Sontarans, Autons, Silurians, Sea Devils, Ice Warriors, Mara, or any other alien…[Read more]

  • So, after this spectacular episode “The Power of The Doctor” coming late in yet another year with only three specials and no new series, not even one with only six episodes, it looks like the BBC have pretty well killed off Doctor Who as a TV series! They started doing this in 2009 when David Tennant was allowed to go off and play Shakespeare,…[Read more]

  • One thing I forgot about which should have been explained in this episode if not in a previous episode, but it never has been. The Thirteenth Doctor’s hair. After a regeneration, the Doctor’s whole body and hair are changed. The colour, type or hair, and hairstyle can all change. One thing still remains a mystery, though. Just after regenerating…[Read more]

  • @bluesqueakpip I think everyone should take care of their appearance. As for the Classic Doctors who appeared in this episode, I think that at least they should have been wearing wigs that looked like their hair when they played The Doctor.

    I’m very, very disappointed that only four million people in the UK (or who seem to be in the UK, but…[Read more]

  • @bluesqueakpip Sarah Jane Smith still looked recognisable in “School Reunion” (2006) although she hadn’t been in Doctor Who since “The Hand of Fear” (1976), as well as in “The Sarah Jane Adventures”, although she hadn’t appeared in Doctor Who for 30 years in between appearances! I also thought that all the Doctors were easily recognisable apart…[Read more]

  • @devilishrobby I’m afraid I don’t agree with your comment on my post. I think that Janet Fielding now looks like a totally different person. I saw a short video of her taken at a convention years later where she looked similar to how she looked in Doctor Who, though. As for Paul McGann, he later appeared in the short video “The Night of The…[Read more]

  • “The Power of The Doctor”. I was really looking forward to this special episode, especially after being deprived of new episodes for six months. I knew it was a regeneration episode, so that alone should make it exciting. I did enjoy it, but the question is how much? I was often thinking “What IS this?”, or “What’s happening now?”, which are goo…[Read more]

    I think this is the first time I’ve posted in Dr Who News. In the past I’ve posted in other parts of this forum, though. I’d like to confirm that I mean everything I say in this post. I can’t help thinking that other people have been slowly brainwashed by the BBC’s plans for Doctor Who, which weren’t announced all at once.

  • I’ve just read all your posts after waiting some time for my original post to reappear.

    Of course, there are always things that happen which you’re not supposed to notice. I wonder what the neighbours thought when a new house (the spare TARDIS in disguise) suddenly appeared right next to theirs all of a sudden?


    I also seem to remember…[Read more]

  • Craig, where is my long post which appeared here before, but after I deleted some tags it disappeared? Please can you sort this problem out ASAP? I”m not even allowed to post it again, because this is detected,l then I get an error message!

  • This New Year’s special was yet another excellent example of a constantly twisting plot as we have seen with Showrunner Chris Chibnall in the past! There were references to so many Doctor Who episodes from the era of the thirteenth Doctor, as well as the return of Captain Jack from the ninth Doctor’s era.
    Ever since Series 12 ended, I thought t…[Read more]
