cinema-screening-of-recovered-episodes-confirmed

Prince Charles Cinema, in association with the BBC and BFI, will be hosting a screening of the recently discovered Doctor Who episodes later this month.

Missing installments of the two previously incomplete Patrick Troughton serials, The Enemy of the World and The Web of Fear, were found at a TV relay station in Africa last year.

To celebrate their respective DVD releases, fans will be able to enjoy them in all their restored glory on the big screen.

The serials will be screened in their entirety at the cinema on Saturday 22nd February at 11:15am. This one-off marathon will be followed by a live Q&A session with the key cast members, who will be accompanied on stage by actor and Doctor Who fan Toby Hadoke.

Tickets for this screening will go on sale HERE from tomorrow (Friday) morning at 9am.

sophie-aldred-to-guest-in-new-web-series-secludio

Sophie Aldred, who’s known as the Doctor’s companion Ace, can be seen in an upcoming web series.

The actress stars in Secludio, a 15-part ‘dramedy’ by Peter Stray which finds the lighter side of being lonely.

Sophie plays Paula in the series, the sister of its protaganist, Colin Hyde, who connects with her sibling via webcalls when he locks himself away to complete his book. Its international cast ensemble filmed their scenes on iPhones and flip cams.

“I wanted this story to take place in the isolation of one location, and the vastness of the online webscape,” commented Peter. “It kind of takes place everywhere and nowhere…”

SECLUDIO launches next week. Follow its latest developments on its Twitter @secludio.

Thanks to Peter Stray.

half-a-century-of-extermination-the-daleks-at-50

It’s another huge milestone in Doctor Who’s history today as the Daleks officially turn 50 years old!

The “masters of the universe” made their screen debut back on 21st December 1963 in the first instalment of the aptly named The Daleks, which was Doctor Who’s second serial.

Created by Terry Nation, it didn’t take long for the enemies to strike a chord with the audience as ‘Dalekmania’ gripped the nation.

Since their inception they’ve made countless appearances which have established them as the Doctor’s most formidable foes. As unpredictable as Doctor Who is, one factor is always a dead cert – wherever the Time Lord travels, the Daleks won’t be far behind…

As we await their latest return in The Time of the Doctor on Christmas Day (see them in the trailer HERE), join us as we honour 50 years of extermination and raise our glass to those mutated monsters we all just love to hate. But what are your favourite Daaaa-lek moments? Are they as scary as they used to be? Let us know in the comments below…

To prepare us for the Doctor’s regeneration, his latest video sees the Commander chronicle the past incarnations of our beloved Time Lord as we await the arrival of #12 (or 13… or 5.5/apple/26… or however you’re counting it now!).

Check out Strax’s field report in the player below, humans!

The Time of the Doctor will air on BBC One at 7:30pm on Christmas Day – 5 days to go!

doctor-who-say-what-you-see-app-now-available

To commemorate the 50th anniversary, app developers Big Ideas Digital have released a new Doctor Who app inspired by the Say What You See format.

The fun app features 150 rebus Doctor Who puzzles across three beautifully painted canvases which take players on a journey through iconic Doctor Who locations.

Each cryptic puzzle suggests a Doctor Who related monster, companion, gadget or episode title using words or phrases.

Solving each one adds to a trivia-filled fact file including never before revealed secrets.

“There has been many Doctor Who games, but this is the first one that covers the entire span of the show’s history, referencing episodes, characters and monsters from all of its 50 years,” said Jon Hamblin, Director. “If this isn’t the first game to appeal to old-school, hardcore fans as much as younger fans of modern Who, I will eat my Tom Baker scarf!”

Doctor Who – Say What You See is now available to download on the App Store, Google Play Store and Amazon Marketplace priced £1.99/$2.99. Check out previews of it below!
