Doctor Who Offers Us A Joyous Celebration Of Reusing Old Story Ideas

Doctor Who's head writer, Steven Moffat, has sometimes been accused of having a few main story ideas that he trots out again and again. Today's Doctor Who Christmas special, "Last Christmas," feels like a hilarious, spirited defense: A story made entirely out of old stories, which just has fun with it.

Here's your first look at the next Doctor Who Christmas special — and it's basically proof that Peter Capaldi can bring 1000 percent more razor-sharp menace to anything, even just a conversation with Santa Claus on the rooftop.

The Eleventh Doctor's regeneration is still heartbreaking, even in Lego

Although we've only recently finished off a whole series of Peter Capaldi goodness, it feels like just yesterday we were bidding farewell to Matt Smith's Doctor on Doctor Who - which is probably why I still get a little verklempt watching this CGI-'d Lego take on his regeneration scene. » 11/13/14 3:00pm 11/13/14 3:00pm

Tonight's episode clinches it: Doctor Who is doing a much more ambitious character arc than it's done in years, even as the show's "mystery" storytelling is drastically scaled back.

With This Episode, Doctor Who Season 8 Starts To Pay Off, Big Time

"The Caretaker" is my favorite episode of the Peter Capaldi era of Doctor Who thus far. And it's also probably going to turn out to be the episode where this season really "clicks" for me.

Finally, the first figure of the 12th Doctor's action figure is out - and when we first saw pictures of the prototype, it looked pretty decent. New press pictures of the final figure however, reveal something that looks a little less Peter Capaldi, a little more... pallid Rowan Atkinson? Huh. » 9/26/14 11:00am 9/26/14 11:00am

The Twelfth Doctor Describes A Beloved Movie He's Never Seen

Fine, so it's not the Twelfth Doctor as such (it's Peter Capaldi in his turn as the delightfully foul-mouthed Malcolm Tucker), and it's not just any beloved movie. But mercy, is it ever fun to imagine everyone's favorite Gallifreyan swearing his way through movie reviews of movies he's never seen. I'd watch the hell… » 9/13/14 8:30am 9/13/14 8:30am

Peter Capaldi Is Already Carrying Doctor Who On His Amazing Shoulders

This was a pretty humdrum season Doctor Who season opener for the most part. Except that Peter Capaldi, the new Doctor, is already bringing a marvelously strange energy to the role of the Doctor.
