DOCTOR WHO Xmas Special to Screen in Cinemas

 

xmasBlueBoxThe 2015 DOCTOR WHO Christmas special will be shown in U.S. movie theaters on Dec. 28 and 29 at 7:30 p.m. (local time).

And — in a gesture that Santa Claus would love — the events will also feature an exclusive interview with Alex Kingston (River Song) and a 15-minute “making of” behind-the-scenes featurette starring Peter Capaldi (the Doctor) and executive producer Steven Moffat!

Tickets for the screenings can be purchased online beginning tomorrow, Nov. 13, by visiting the Fathom Events website or participating theater box offices. A complete list of theater locations can be found on the Fathom Events site.

Here is the official synopsis of the special:

It’s Christmas in the future and the TARDIS is parked on a snowy village street, covered in icicles, awaiting its next adventure. Time traveler River Song meets her husband’s new incarnation, in the form of Peter Capaldi, for the first time!

Moffat Makes the Doctor’s Sonic Sunglasses Sound Cool!

sonicshades01When the Doctor… er, “loaned” his sonic screwdriver to Davros in “The Magician’s Apprentice,” he relieved himself of his trademark instrument — and that had to be replaced. Enter: the sonic sunglasses, a hopped-up, high-tech version of Ray-Ban Wayfarers.

Fan reaction was predictable: This was the end of the world! Showrunner Steven Moffat — frequent target of fan venom for shaking up the status quo — sent more people running for the hills than the Untempered Schism ever did.

Moffat told the crowd at MCM London Comic-Con:

“As of now, every kid with glasses is Doctor Who! Kids whose parents don’t want to shell out for a sonic screwdriver toy — just put on a pair of sunglasses, you’re Doctor Who! And best of all, every pin-brained celebrity walking into a party with shades on is now cosplaying Doctor Who! If it pricks the pomposity of ubercelebs and turns an eye defect into a super power and confers star-magic on an old pair of sunglasses — what could be more Doctor Who than that?”

Moffat Confirms He’s Making a Full, 12-Episode Series 10

docrockerExterminating nasty rumors that have been running rampant among the British tabloids, DOCTOR WHO executive producer and lead writer Steven Moffat confirmed today that the next season of DOCTOR WHO — the 10th since its revival — will consist of a full slate of 12 episodes plus a Christmas special.

And the whole season will star Peter Capaldi!

Moffat said:

“We’re making a full series. I can confirm that. I’m making a full series of 12 episodes, plus a Christmas special. I don’t know when it goes out. That’s up to someone else. And even if I did know – which I genuinely don’t – I wouldn’t be allowed to say so as I have absolutely no say in it whatsoever.
It’s not being reduced in size. We’re not making fewer episodes. That’s all complete bunk. I can confirm that absolutely.”

Jenna’s Heartbreaking Plea for Clara’s Exit From DOCTOR WHO

 

jennaweepyThings were looking grim for DOCTOR WHO’s Clara Oswald (Jenna Coleman) at the cliff-hanger ending of “The Zygon Invasion” this weekend, and no matter if the Doctor (Peter Capaldi) can rescue her this time, we fans know the Impossible Girl is not long for the Whoniverse.

It’s just a question of when, not if.

And, of course, how Clara will go.

Executive producer Steven Moffat told the audience at the recent MCM Comic-Con in London: “Jenna actually asked me, ‘could you just not have the new one come in while I’m still there?’”

Remember that Coleman’s initial appearance came as a total shock — playing Soufflé Girl in “Aslyum of the Daleks” — many months before she was expected to debut in the Christmas special.

Jenna Coleman Quits DOCTOR WHO — Again, and for the Last Time

Jenna Coleman confirmed this morning on BBC Radio 1 that she is leaving DOCTOR WHO this season.

“I have left the TARDIS,” Coleman told host Nick Grimshaw. “It’s happened. I filmed my last scene.”

Coleman confirmed that Clara’s exit has “been in the works for a very long time.”

Craziest Rumor of the Week: The 13th Doctor Is Already Cast!

doctorsneerDOCTOR WHO returns to screens around the planet Saturday evening, so of course it’s time to step up the speculation about when it’s all going to spiral into entropy.

Mysterious “sources” — those things multiply like adipose, don’t they? — claim to know what will happen in this year’s Christmas Special, and what will happen is very… weird.

If moviepilot.com is to be believed — in which case, SPOILER! — the 12th Doctor will encounter “a Ghost of Christmas Yet to Come” in the form of his next incarnation and sexy companion!

It has already been widely rumored that Jenna Coleman’s Clara will not be in the 2015 holiday episode, making plenty of room for the return of River Song (Alex Kingston). The story will have the Doctor (Peter Capaldi) and River fighting an alien menace in the far future.

And that’s where our heroes get a glimpse of the 13th Doctor: very young, wearing a blue suit and matching pea coat as well as sunglasses. The actor is said to be just 20 years old! Supposedly his new companion will be played by model-turned-actress Cara Delevingne!

Capaldi would then not have a 10th season, but rather a David Tennant-like succession of three hour-long “specials” throughout 2016 before leaving the role on New Year’s Day 2017.

Can you say Oodshit?
