Transference is an unusual audio drama produced by Big Finish Productions. They already produce epic, ambitious Doctor Who and Torchwood dramas that are bigger than a television budget could ever allow. What sets Transference apart is that it's a naturalistic crime thriller with no Science fiction or fantastical elements at all. Alex Kingston plays a […]

With Chris Chibnall, Jodie Whittaker, and the rest of the team behind Doctor Who currently busy with Series 12 production, now seems about as good a time as any to learn a little more about Chibnall and Whittaker's journey to the Who-niverse.

Before there were DVDs and Blu-rays, the only way BBC Doctor Who fans could revisit their favourite stories was to read the novelisations released by Target Books. Fans still look upon those books with fondness, with many saying they inspired them as kids to become professional writers – including showrunners Russell T. Davies and Steven Moffat. […]
If there was one major takeaway from this year's BBC Doctor Who New Year's Special 'Resolution,' it's that there's definitely a new Dalek in town. It's broke and has no casing, broken off by a bunch of warriors hundreds of years ago. So what's a poor Dalek in "The Big City" to do when it finally […]
At a special advance screening of the Doctor Who New Year's Special "Resolution", showrunner Chris Chibnall revealed that it was the Doctor herself Jodie Whittaker who was responsible for a Dalek showing up this series.

UPDATE: Oh yes – there are Daleks: They told you there would be no Daleks in the new series of Doctor Who. They lied. They teased Daleks in the trailer to the Doctor Who New Year's Day Special: Resolution. They told the truth. And now here they are. Your first look at the Daleks in […]

From this point forward, follows spoilers for tonight's episode of Doctor Who. I'll be in the comments below if you want me… 1. Who Is The Magician? And Who Is The Apprentice? That title. The Magician's Apprentice. Somehow combining The Magician's Nephew and The Sorceror's Apprentice. A fairytale of a 20th century origin of Narnia and of […]

A comic book came second, for the PPA's best magazine cover of all time, beaten by another of Bleeding Cool's obsessions, so we're all happy. And now we have an answer to that question, Dennis Vs A Dalek, who'd win? You voted Dalek, it seems.
We know that the Daleks are back for the 50th Anniversary of Doctor Who – because Brendon and I saw them when we saw the trailer at San Diego Comic Con. But it appears they may not be gone for long after that. Bleeding Cool have been told that the Season Eight will bring us […]
