whoviannets-2016-year-in-review

With the new year just around the corner, it’s a great excuse to get nostalgic as we take a fond look back at the timey-wimey thrills that the last 12 months have brought our way.

And let’s be honest, it wasn’t looking good. 2016 began with the Earth-shattering announcement that we would only be getting one Doctor Who episode and, faced with the concept of another dreaded ‘gap year’, we were left wondering how the hell we were going to manage without a full series…

Somehow, though, we made it through the darkness.

Despite the lack of on screen action, 2016 has still been a brilliant year to be a Doctor Who fan. We got a brand new spin off, Class, as another one, Torchwood, turned 10 years old, and even the Eighth Doctor came along for the festivities as the 1996 TV Movie marked its 20th anniversary. Series 10 began filming in Cardiff with a new companion, Pearl Mackie, and… well, why don’t you take a trip down memory lane to remember the rest of the best?

January (WhovianNet news posts: 28)

After Doctor Who bid farewell to 2015 with the bittersweet tale of The Husbands of River Song, fans were left to anticipate the brand new adventures that 2016 would have in store.

Going into the new year, we didn’t actually know when the Doctor would be back on our screens, but all of our questions were soon answered when, on 22nd January, it was announced that Steven Moffat would be stepping down from his role as showrunner – to be replaced by Broadchurch creator Chris Chibnall – after Series 10. But guess what else? It was also confirmed that Series 10 wouldn’t be airing until 2017, meaning that only one episode, the Christmas Special, would be airing in 2016. It was going to be a long year…

Also in January, resurfacing rumours abound that Peter Capaldi would too be stepping down after one more year in the TARDIS, as Tom Weston-Jones emerged as a very early favourite to be cast as his successor. Meanwhile, John Hurt was Doctor Who Magazine’s new year cover star to promote the forthcoming War Doctor Big Finish audio adventures. And we thought we’d never see him again after The Day of the Doctor!

February (WhovianNet news posts: 18)

Love was in the air in February with Valentine’s Day just around the corner, and Cupid certainly worked his magic for fans of Lucie Miller when it was confirmed that Sheridan Smith would be reprising her role as the popular Eighth Doctor companion for a new Big Finish audio adventure. Welcome back, Lucie!

Elsewhere, Peter Capaldi was making the most of his extended break from filming by travelling to Jordan to meet Syrian refugees on behalf of the UN Refugee Agency, while back on home turf he lent his hand to the junior doctor’s Wear Your NHS campaign. You can always count on Capaldi.

Following Jenna Coleman’s departure in the last series, everybody was talking about the identity of her replacement, with EastEnders actress Rakhee Thakrar already being hotly tipped to take on the prestigious companion role. As always, only time would tell…

March (WhovianNet news posts 16)

It only felt like yesterday that our impossible girl, Clara Oswald, had bid adieu to the TARDIS (her final series landed on DVD and Blu-ray this month), but there was hardly any time to miss her as her real life alter ego wasn’t off our screens for long. On 27th March, ITV debuted the trailer for her first post-Who project, Victoria, in which Jenna was to take on the guise of Britain’s then longest serving monarch.

Back in the Whoniverse, the series went and broke another Guinness World Record when 492 cosplaying Whovians descended upon a Mexican convention to partake in the largest gathering of fans dressed as character’s from the same show. Which is a real thing, apparently. This fandom never ceases to amaze us…

Meanwhile, River Song was back (again!) as Big Finish revealed that she’d be teaming up with not one but two Classic Doctors in a new audio range and, with the anticipated new spin off, Class, just around the corner, speculation was rife that the Time Lord’s current incarnation himself was set to make an appearance. Well, he’s never been one to miss out on a party…

April (WhovianNet news posts: 25)

Speaking of Class, we got the first episode title back in April when its star Katherine Kelly – whose character name was also revealed as Miss Quill – treated her Twitter followers to a behind the scenes picture of a script. OK, so the title, ‘The Prom’, had changed by the time the episode transmitted, but it was still exciting at the time.

The biggest story of the month (and, admittedly, the one we should’ve started with), was the long awaited unveiling of Pearl Mackie as the brand new Doctor Who companion, Bill. Never one to make a Doctor Who announcement quietly, the BBC opted to reveal the news in the form a specially recorded scene which was premiered during the FA Cup semi-final on 23rd April for some reason. Still, fans were overjoyed to have one of their first (and last) Doctor Who doses of the year, and they even threw in a Dalek for good measure. Because why the hell not?

Meanwhile, fans were saying lots of nice things about Michelle Gomez when her praised portrayal of Missy landed her a prestigious BAFTA nomination for Best Supporting Actress (Spoilers: she didn’t win), as David Tennant and Catherine Take took over DWM to coincide with the release of their new Big Finish audio series. The Tenth Doctor and Donna Noble also had a new novel coming out, too. It was like 2008 all over again…

May (WhovianNet news posts: 19)

John Barrowman got tongues wagging (which, we know, is so unlike him!) in May when he revealed that he was about to return to Cardiff for some Doctor Who/Torchwood related shenanigans, which turned out to be the recording of a new Big Finish adventure co-starring Camille Coduri as Jackie Tyler.

Christmas also came early for fans when Character Options unveiled the brand new Twelfth Doctor Sonic Screwdriver toy (it lit up and everything!) and Michelle Gomez sent the forums into meltdown when she let slip during a convention Q&A that Missy would be returning in Series 10. DWM also celebrated its landmark 500th issue by giving readers the chance to vote for their favourite cover.

June (WhovianNet news posts: 11)

We’d reached the halfway point of the year and there wasn’t a Doctor Who episode in sight, but thankfully the cast and crew had begun working their little socks off in Cardiff as the cameras finally rolled up on Series 10.

To mark the auspicious occasion, the Doctor’s incoming BFF was pictured on location as it was announced that she’d be joined in the TARDIS by Matt Lucas (reprising his role as Nardole from the 2015 Christmas Special), and Frank Cottrell-Boyce and Sarah Dollard were confirmed as the first writers.

Meanwhile, in the same month that Penelope ‘Harriet Jones’ Wilton (yes, we know who she is…) was knighted by the Queen, there was a social media frenzy when Karen Gillan, Billie Piper and Michelle Gomez collectively got with the times by finally joining Instagram. Better late then never eh, girls?

July (WhovianNet news posts: 11)

July saw David Tennant become a fully-fledged doctor (no, seriously!) when he was the recipient of an honorary acting degree awarded by his old drama school in Glasgow. His career reached its peak, however, with the announcement that he’d be appearing in the upcoming season of Family Guy as part of a light-hearted parody entitled ‘Doctor Who Farted?’. Whoever smelt it, dealt it.

Outside of Quahog, filming on Series 10 was in full swing as production continued in Spain (but first, let them take a selfie…), and The Royle Family star Ralf Little became the latest actor to be signed up for a guest stint in the new adventures.

Meanwhile, Torchwood fans were given new hope when John Barrowman revealed that he was in talks to bring the spin off back to screens (nearly 1,000 – a whopping 98% – of you gave that a big “hell yes!” in our accompanying poll) and Matt Strevens, producer of the 2013 docudrama An Adventure in Space and Time, was appointed exec producer of Series 11 of Doctor Who as the creative team for Chris Chibnall’s 2018 adventures began to take shape. Because they’re nothing if not organised.

August (WhovianNet news posts: 8)

With her anticipated return to the small screen as Queen Victoria imminent, Jenna Coleman was popping up here, there and everywhere throughout August as she promoted the show in a vigorous string of interviews and press junkets, which basically became conversations in which she was continually forced to deny her return to Doctor Who. It would’ve been rude not to ask.

Meanwhile, the 20th anniversary of the Doctor Who TV Movie was commemorated with the announcement that it would finally be making its way to Blu-ray, while, amid rehashed rumours that Series 10 would be filming in Vancouver, Hercule Poirot himself – veteran actor David Suchet - stepped in front of the cameras in Cardiff to shoot his guest stint as the mysterious Landlord. It was already shaping up to be one hell of a series!

September (WhovianNet news posts: 8)

September was all about celebrating the past (because, let’s face it, not an awful lot was happening in the present…) as DWM dedicated their cover to the Fifth Doctor to coincide with Peter Davison’s most candid interview ever, while, in an equally candid interview, Christopher Eccleston reflected on the “tragic” circumstances that led to his untimely departure as the Ninth Doctor after just one series. Basically, it was a disaster (his words, not ours!).

The big story of the month, however, and the news that made Classic Series fans both young and old weep tears of joy and jubilation into their TARDIS handkerchiefs, was that the missing 1965 serial The Power of the Daleks was being RESTORED (sort of) as a black and white animation. Hurrah! What’s more, it was to be released on the 50th anniversary of its original transmission, so it was all very nostalgic and exciting. Oh, and four new audio adventures featuring Captain Jack were announced, but what else is new?

October (WhovianNet news posts: 34)

It was time to go back to school, specifically Coal Hill, in October as Class finally opened its doors, premiering online on BBC Three with a double-whammy of drama on Saturday 22nd October. A new chapter had officially begun!

While Doctor Who fans got to know their next generation of honourable heroes, it was business as usual at Roath Lock Studios in Cardiff as filming continued on Series 10, which was to feature the return of a Classic Series writer

We finally got a taste of what was in store when a first look preview of this year’s Christmas Special – named this month as The Return of Doctor Mysterio – was posted online on 7th October, with an epic new poster to boot, as the BBC surprised us all by revealing Justin Chatwin as its leading guest star, one whole week after the news had been leaked by British tabloids. Oops.

Torchwood turned 10 years old (not that DWM paid any notice…), the Weeping Angels reigned supreme – again – in our annual Who’loween Spooktacular, and the BBC announced a new range of Doctor Who books based on the Mr. Men franchise, because apparently there isn’t any fictional universe the Doctor can’t co-inhabit. Not that we’re complaining, of course.

November (WhovianNet news posts: 36)

In the same month that Doctor Who celebrated its 53rd anniversary, fans were introduced to a brand new Time Lord from the universe next door when Ken Campbell stepped aboard the TARDIS as The Lost Doctor in a fan-made audio project, released online for free in November.

Meanwhile, over at Coal Hill Academy, things went from bad to worse for Charlie and the gang but, as the mid-series trailer affirmed, it was all about to change…

Speaking of trailers, we got a brand new one for the Christmas Special in the form of an exclusive clip which was aired as part of Children in Need in BBC One and, having been off air for almost a year, the BBC were making no secret of the fact that Doctor Who would return on Christmas Day at 5:45pm. That was Christmas Day, 5:45pm. 5:45. Christmas Day. Do you need to write it down?

Also in November, the British press got their devilish mitts on some intriguing spoilers for Series 10, at the same time as they claimed the show would be getting a “major shake-up” – new Doctor et al – in 2018. It was confirmed by official sources that Series 9 director Daniel Nettheim would be back to call the shots in 2017, and you know that Classic Series writer that Steven Moffat teased last month? Turns out it’s none other than Rona Munro, who penned the “last ever” Doctor Who serial, Survival, back in 1989. Which is pretty damn cool if you ask us. Is it 2017 yet?!

December (WhovianNet news posts: 18)

Not quite, but it’ll be here before you know it. We had Christmas to get through first and, with the season of tinsel, turkey and goodwill to all men finally upon us, the Doctor’s grand comeback in The Return of Doctor Mysterio was just around the corner.

The episode premiered on Christmas Day (at 5:45pm, if you didn’t get the memo…), with 5.68 million viewers tuning in to see our beloved hero take on a band of brain-swapping aliens in New York. If that doesn’t make you feel festive, we don’t know what will.

With the Doctor back where he belongs, it’s full steam ahead for Series 10 next year, which was previewed in this action-packed Coming Soon trailer which aired after the Christmas Special. We certainly have lots to look forward to, not least the return of Missy, as documented by the woman herself via the means of an obligatory set selfie. Toby Whithouse is back to write an episode, too, and we can’t wait to find out what other shocks and surprises lie in store. New series… new companion… same old Doctor!

And that was 2016! What have been your Who highlights of the year? And what are your hopes for 2017 and Series 10? Let us know… oh, and Happy New Year!

the-11-doctor-who-christmas-specials-ranked-from-best-to-not-so-best

It’s Christmas Eve which means that the Doctor’s long awaited comeback in The Return of Doctor Mysterio is just around the corner!

The arrival of a Doctor Who Christmas Special is always an auspicious occasion (especially when it’s the only new episode of the year!), and to help us prepare for its premiere, we embarked on a mission to rank the previous festive episodes from best to not-so best, and the results are in!

Check ‘em below, and thanks to everybody who voted.

11. The Next Doctor (1%)

2008 was an epic year for Doctor Who so it was only fitting that it culminated with the return of one of the show’s most iconic adversaries, the Cybermen. The stomping metal monsters were the least of the Tenth Doctor’s worries, though, as his arrival in a snowy Victorian London also brought him face to face with a man who was claiming to be one of his future incarnations. The one, the only and the best. Or was he?

Well, no, as it turns out, but just over 13 million viewers tuned in to find out whether or not Russell T Davies had managed to hoodwink an entire nation again after the Doctor’s botched regeneration in Journey’s End earlier that same year. Oh, the feels. In fact, we needed a whole gap year to recover…

10. The Time of the Doctor (3%)

Matt Smith crash-landed on to our screens as the Eleventh Doctor in Spring 2010 but, after what can only be described as one of the show’s most ambitious and epic tenures to date, timey-wimey was finally up for our Fez wearing, fish fingers and custard eating incarnation on Christmas Day 2013 when he bowed out in spectacular style to an audience of 12.1 million viewers.

It was the end of an almighty era which also served to bookend the year’s far-reaching 50th anniversary celebrations with the arrival of a brand new Doctor in the form of Peter Capaldi. But do you know what? We’ll always remember when the Doctor was Matt. Goodnight, raggedy man.

9. The Doctor, the Widow and the Wardrobe (3%)

Suffice to say, 2011 was a tough year for the Eleventh Doctor. It all kicked off when he was shot dead at Lake Silencio and things then went from bad to worse (and not to mention confusing!) when he was summoned to investigate his own death. He was also reunited with River Song, who would later be revealed as Amy and Rory’s daughter as well as the impossible astronaut behind his untimely demise. Series 6 was a rollercoaster to say the least.

You can’t blame him, then, for wanting to restore his faith in the universe by sharing a little joy, and that’s exactly what he did in The Doctor, the Widow and the Wardrobe when he journeyed back to 1938 to give Madge Arwell and her children – plus the 10.77 million viewers watching at home – the best Christmas ever. What would we do without him?

8. Last Christmas (4%)

Not to be confused with the classic Wham! hit of the same name, although the 2014 Christmas Special was such a madcap adventure, that pretty much anything goes.

It’s not every day that the Doctor comes face to face with Santa Claus himself but he here was in the actual North Pole and, well… it all got a bit weird after that, didn’t it? Still, it ended with the most magical of sleigh rides over a snowy London town, so who cares if it was all happening inside their heads? Besides, stranger things have happened. The perfect Christmas adventure.

7. The End of Time, Part One (4%)

Doctor Who has established a habit of breaking our Whovian hearts during the festive period (but it’s the season to be jolly, God damn you!) and we all needed a stiff drink – or five – to help us pick up the pieces back in 2009 when the Tenth Doctor embarked on his final journey.

Ok, so it really hit the fan in part two on New Year’s Day, but Russell didn’t shy away from giving us all the feels (and then some!) on Christmas Day as the Master returned and our hero accepted the inevitability of his unavoidable fate. Also… Wilfred Mott. Need we say more?

6. The Runaway Bride (7%)

The Tenth Doctor had just said a heartbreaking farewell to Rose Tyler but his tears weren’t even dry before he was thrown head first into his next adventure, featuring Catherine Tate in a wedding dress. Because Christmas.

The ensuing drama made for one of the most epic adventures to date as the Doctor raced to get Donna Noble to the church on time. Her happily ever was over before it even began, however, after it was revealed that this fiesty temp from Chiswick had been caught up in a sinister web of deception. Enter the Empress of the Racnoss. Oh, Donna. Fortunately for her, though, her trip of a lifetime was only just beginning…

5. Voyage of the Damned (10%)

Nobody has ever been fortunate enough to take a peek at the Doctor’s Christmas list but we’re sure that a yuletide romp (no, not like that…) with an acclaimed pop princess would take a pretty high spot. Well, he should be so lucky – lucky, lucky, lucky – back in 2008 when he joined forces with Kylie Minogue for an epic, festive adventure aboard a spaceship replica of the Titanic. You couldn’t write it, but thank God Russell T Davies did.

The dynamic duo was to be short lived, of course, as the would-be companion ended up sacrificing herself to save the world. It was certainly fun while it lasted, though, and the episode still stands as one of the most watched of the revived series, with 13.31 million viewers to its name. We just can’t get it out of our head.

4. The Husbands of River Song (11%)

Steven Moffat gave Doctor Who fans one of the greatest presents of them all last year when he finally introduced River Song to the Twelfth Doctor. While the story itself is an enjoyable enough ride, it’s the final moments that have no doubt resulted in this episode reaching such a high place in the countdown.

After River’s initial debut – and subsequent demise – back in 2008 (wait, has it really been that long?!), we finally got to witness their bittersweet farewell on Darillium. It was the momentous moment we had all been waiting for and there wasn’t a dry eye in the house as they both lived out their happily ever after. You know, in timey-wimey sort of way.

3. The Snowmen (14%)

We found ourselves back in Victorian London on Christmas Day 2012 (the Doctor just can’t stay away, can he?!) when Jenna Coleman’s second introduction as Clara Oswald was upstaged by a band of sinister Snowmen who sounded a lot like that grey, bearded wizard guy from Lord of the Rings. Raymond Briggs’ Snowman was way cuter.

Still, it all added to the festive fun, and even Strax, Jenny and Vastra came along for the ride as a chilling menace threatened Earth. Not everybody would live to tell the tale, but things got rather confusing when it was our new companion who paid the ultimate price. Again. Oh well, there was always next year.

2. The Christmas Invasion (15%)

Taking second place is the one that started it all as David Tennant stepped aboard the TARDIS for his first full-length adventure as the Tenth Doctor… which he spent most of in bed. He had just regenerated, though, so we’ll let him off (this time…), but his untimely recovery meant that there was nobody around to defend planet Earth from the ensuing threat of the sinister Sycorax. Typical.

He came through to save the day (satsuma and all) in the end, of course, and, as the first Doctor Who Christmas Special, the episode kick started a televisual tradition that, over a decade later, is now impossible to imagine the festive season without. And an average of 12 million viewers would tend to agree. Amen to that.

1. A Christmas Carol (28%)

In at first place is the episode that taught us that when you’re alone, silence is all you know… unless you have Katherine Jenkins singing to you through a sonic screwdriver in the middle of a snowy town on Christmas Day. We’ve all had that dream, right?

A Christmas Carol basically sums up everything that a Doctor Who Christmas Special should be about. There’s a heartwarming story, a lonely old miser seeking redemption (who just so happens to be Albus freakin’ Dumbledore!), a shark sleigh ride and Karen Gillan in a police uniform. What more could you possibly want on Christmas Day? Steven Moffat, we salute you.

rank-the-doctor-who-christmas-specials

‘Tis the season of turkeys, crackers and goodwill to all men… and if the Doctor isn’t defending Planet Earth from a formidable, festive foe, it just ain’t Christmas.

Luckily, the Time Lord’s long awaited comeback is just around the corner as he’ll burst back on to our screens in The Return of Doctor Mysterio on Christmas Day. If you’re already in the mood for some timey-wimey yuletide goodness, you’ve got 11 other Christmas Specials to keep you occupied until our hero is back where he belongs. But with such a coveted catalogue of seasonal sci-fi shenanogams, where do you begin?!

To help you decide which of his previous adventures you should priorities on your rewatch list, we’re on a mission to rank the Doctor Who Christmas Specials from best to not so best (because let’s face it, even a ‘bad’ episode is still pretty good). In anticipation for this year’s special, cast your vote in the poll below to let us know which one you rate the most. You can only vote one so choose wisely…

michelle-gomez-begins-filming-for-series-10

It looks like Michelle Gomez is finally back in Cardiff filming for Series 10 of Doctor Who, if this recent Instagram post of hers is anything to go by.

As previously confirmed, everybody’s favourite renegade Time Lady will be returning to fight another day (again!) during Steven Moffat’s final series next year, with the actress herself revealing back in October that she was due to start filming “soon”. The momentous moment has now arrived it seems, because here she is posing for a selfie with Matt Lucas on set. Is the world ready for Missy and Nardole?!

toby-whithouse-confirms-series-10-return

Toby Whithouse has revealed that he’ll be writing an episode for Series 10 of Doctor Who, to be aired in 2017.

The man himself took to his Twitter page earlier this week to formally announce the news, which is also confirmed in the latest issue of Doctor Who Magazine, on sale now.

His previous episodes include School Reunion, A Town Called Mercy and, most recently, last year’s Under the Lake/Before the Flood two-parter. He also penned the 2006 Torchwood episode Greeks Bearing Gifts.

Other confirmed writers for Series 10 thus far include Jamie Mathieson, Sarah Dollard, Rona Munro, Frank Cottrell-Boyce, Mike Bartlett and, of course, outgoing showrunner Mr Steven Moffat. It’s shaping up to be quite the series! What do you think of the line up?
