Welcome to our time-traveling, space-warping round up of all the news we could find about the world’s most popular Timelord, Doctor Who. And there’s a ton of news to get through because, remember: this article is bigger on the inside.
ITEM! New Who Premieres On May 24th… Sort Of
Okay, so the actual show doesn’t premiere this Friday, but a mini-sode written by kids will show up in the UK (and we assume the rest of the Internet) late Friday afternoon. The mini-sode was part of a contest for viewers of the UK show “Blue Peter,” which, we’re assuming, is not nearly as dirty as it sounds.
ITEM! Most Ridiculous Who Title Ever?
Rumor has it that the seventh episode of the upcoming season of Who – the second with new companion Jenna Louise Coleman – will be titled… Ready? “Dinosaurs on a Spaceship”. If someone doesn’t say, “I’ve had it with these motherf**king dinosaurs on this motherf**king spaceship!” at some point in the episode, well, that’s probably okay.
ITEM! Eternity Clock Hits Tomorrow
After a very long delay that should be expected of the Doctor (he never shows up at the time he promises, of course), the highly anticipated “Doctor Who: The Eternity Clock” video game finally hits tomorrow – May 23rd. However, it’s only available on the Playstation Network in the US, and then on Friday in the UK. And then maybe never for anyone else, though we’ll have to stay tuned on that. Fingers crossed the Sega Saturn version hits soon, so I can get my hands on a copy.
ITEM! Doctor Who Puppet Takes Manhattan
You may have seen pictures floating around the Internet this past week of a Doctor Who puppet travelling around New York, just like his real life counterpart did a few weeks ago. Well, turns out the adorable toy has a Tumblr, with some gorgeous pictures. Someone get this puppet his own spin-off!
EGGS! Arthur Darvill Would Like To Learn About Eggs, Please
Head to this Tumblr to check out the rest of Arthur Darvill and Karen Gillan’s ridiculous exchange about eggs on Twitter. We’re gonna miss the little charmers.
SMOOTH! Criminal Minds Goes Who For Finale
We’ve never watched a single episode (sorry), but on the Season Finale of Criminal Minds – according to Wil Wheaton – the main characters dressed up as Who characters to infiltrate a Comic-Con. They were probably tracking down a Weeping Angel or something.
VADER! Darth Faces Off Against The Doctor
Check out this amazing fan art by K.K. Jordan depicting Darth Vader facing off against the Doctor. Only problem: The Doctor doesn’t know Darth Vader is made out of wood, so that sonic screwdriver ain’t gonna do a darn thing.
PARK! No TARDIS Zone
You’d think, given the time travel and all, the Doctor could figure out how to skip ahead after 4pm to park, but I guess not.
AVENGED! Avengers Names Written In Gallifreyan
Yup, that’s all the Avengers name written in the circular Gallifreyan language, home planet to the Doctor. Great, and I JUST learned Klingon, now I gotta learn this too?
LE POISSON! Little Mermaid/Who Mash-Up
Not sure if this Ariel/Doctor mash-up drawing would go gonzo for fishsticks in custard, but hey, we’ve been wrong before.
