Fan Made Series 8 Trailer

Have you had a chance to check out the amazing fan made trailer for Series 8? It’s so well done that it fooled some into thinking it was official!

The dedication of Who fans never ceases to amaze! Until we get a better trailer from the BBC, you know, one that actually features more than a silhouette, this will suffice!

In Praise Of Pertwee

It was 18 years ago that Jon Pertwee passed away and Andrew Boland takes a look at the third doctor, remembering why he was so awesome!

So there you go. Not a whole lot happened last week, but now we have something to look forward to… August!

The New Doctor Lands This August

What a pleasant surprise it was to get home today and see that there was a teaser trailer for Series 8 on YouTube! Have you seen it yet? No, yes? Either way, here it is for you !

Alright, let’s microanalyze the who trailer… Um, Capaldi was in it, maybe and there were sparks from the console… Okay, so there wasn’t too much there to really get you excited, except maybe the date. The new Doctor lands this August. Start counting down the days!

 

 

New Series 8 Photos-Spoilers

Some new photos have recently turned up from the filming of Series 8. None of them are super spoilery, but if you haven’t heard the latest casting news, then you might want to avoid them.

The photos also feature some sexy orange space suits that we’ve seen a few times over the past five years.

So, how much longer do we have to wait before we get official confirmation about the premiere date? At least then we can start counting the days until Capaldi gets his first full episode!

Monday Morning News Round Up

Your Monday Morning News Round Up is a little late today, but it’s a holiday in Canada and we are taking advantage of it. Here’s a collection of what made the news last week. Follow us on twitter @troughtonsmydoc to get all the news as it happens!

 

Restoring the Classics

The RT released a YouTube video last week showing some of the restoration work being done on Enemy Of The World and Web Of Fear. Worth noting is that the video was shot before the omnirumour even broke in June last year.

Capaldi Gets The Cover

Peter Capaldi was on the Cover of Radio Times this week and Steven Moffatt had an interview inside as well.

 

Doctor Who Comes Full Circle?

With an older Doctor in charge of the tardis, have we come full circle towards a more Hartnell-ish dynamic?

Dark Journey

Doctor Who Dark Journey- New Preview

There’s a new clip online from the fan produced Doctor Who audio Dark Journey. The teaser has a few quotable clips, so be sure to check it out.

Matt and Karen Calgary Interview

If you were unable to attend the Calgary Comic Expo earlier this month, you can still see their panel thanks to this YouTube video!

Help Wanted

Finally we have a help wanted add for TIMD. We are looking for someone who follows news for the new series and would be interested in contributing small write ups as it happens.

12 to 1 Full Circle?

Den of Geek had an interesting article up about Series 8. There are some minor spoilers in here, so please look away if you want everything to be a surprise.

There was some casting news previously, notably that there would be a new ‘companion’ in Danny Pink, a teacher at Coal Hill School. Whether he is a real companion traveling with the Doctor in the tardis remains to be seen. Also joining the cast is a younger girl, who will play his sister, a pupil at the school. Don’t forget Clara was a teacher there as well.

Let me just get my checklist out… Okay, Ian? Check. Barbara? Check. Susan? Check. Older Doctor? Check. It looks like they may be setting things up to mirror the original crew of the tardis. What does this mean for series 8? Are they going to battle cave men and try to start fire? Meet Marco Polo again? Unlikely, but a possible return to that original dynamic is exciting and intriguing!

Capaldi Radio Times Cover!

It’s been a long wait since it was announced that Peter Capaldi would take over the role of the Doctor last fall. Though we still have MONTHS to go before Series 8 starts up, here’s a little something to pass the time.

Peter Capaldi is featured on the cover of the latest issue of Radio Times, which is out now. Not only that, but Steven Moffat gives an interview and talks about Day Of The Doctor and what he looks for in a new Doctor.

“When you choose a Doctor, you want somebody who is utterly compelling, attractive in a very odd way. None of the Doctors are conventionally attractive, but they’re all arresting. Handsome men don’t quite suit. Matt Smith’s a young, good-looking bloke from one angle but is actually the strangest looking man from another. You need that oddity…”
