WhovianNet spent the weekend at MCM Comic Con in Liverpool and it’s safe to say that a great time was had by all!

As always, Doctor Who fans didn’t disappoint with their ever creative cosplaying efforts, and we had a great time chatting to our fellow Whovians who had dressed to impress as their favourite Doctors, companions and villains.

Conventions are always a great place to remind us how fantastic our fandom is, so a huge thanks to everyone who stopped to chat to us and pose for photos.

Special thanks to @TheDogtor, @Grandpa_Pixel and @Ruth_C_AB for the pictures!

poll-should-class-return-for-a-second-series

Class is set to make its official debut in the US next month but fans in the UK have already been there, bought the t-shirt (though perhaps not the DVD) and… well, you get the idea.

It premiered online on BBC Three last year before airing in double bills during BBC One’s ‘graveyard slot’ (which is basically when the entire nation is asleep) in January, and it’s far from overwhelming inception into the mainstream public consciousness has left its fans – affectionally known as the ‘Classmates’ – wondering what, if anything, the future holds for their honourable heroes of Coal Hill Academy…

And let’s face it, it’s not looking good. Rumours are already abound that the show has been axed indefinitely, and even its cast members have been actively encouraging their social media followers to support a fan made petition calling for a second series. Its creator and writer Patrick Ness has persistently falsified claims that Class has officially been dismissed, though it’s likely that they’ll be holding off until after its BBC America broadcast to decide.

Whatever lies ahead for Charlie and the gang (and after that series finale, we’d certainly be intrigued to find out…), let us know if you think Class deserves a second outing in the poll and comments below. Perhaps you think its televisual journey is over but you’d like to see it continue in the form of original audio and comic books? We’d love to hear your thoughts!

POLL: Should Class return for a second series?

The first episode of Class, For Tonight We Might Die, airs on BBC America on Saturday 15th April 2017 at 10/9c, immediately after the Doctor Who Series 10 premiere at 9/8c.

David Tennant will be a guest on tonight’s episode of Top Gear as he prepares to take on an old adversary, the dreaded speed lap, in a Reasonably Fast Car.

The Tenth Doctor actor last took on the challenge back in 2007 (you can relive his first attempt in the player below!), but you’ll have to tune in at 8pm tonight – Sunday – on BBC Two to see if he manages to beat his original time.

You may remember that Billie Piper hilariously beat him, so will this be the moment that he is finally avenged?

john-discusses-jack-meeting-the-twelfth-doctor

John Barrowman recently caught up with the Doctor Who Fan Show to talk about his return as Captain Jack in a new Big Finish audio range.

The conversation inevitably turned to Doctor Who, as the actor admitted that he’d love to see how his on screen alter ego would react to the Twelfth Doctor. “I’d like to see Peter’s Doctor meet Jack,” he said. “The Doctor is a little bit older now, so it would be perfect. Plus, Jack has matured a little bit. Would that spark still be there? Would Jack still feel the same way about him?”

Speculation surrounding Jack’s return to Doctor Who is always ongoing, as are rumours regarding Torchwood’s televisual comeback. Last year, he revealed that he was in talks to end its prolonged hiatus, however plans have yet to develop any further. He explained: “I travel around the world and see how much Torchwood is still loved and how much people want it back. I’m really trying to push for it, but Big Finish is a great way to keep it alive.”

5-things-were-most-looking-forward-to-in-series-10

With the brand new series of Doctor Who now just over a month away, anticipation for our beloved Time Lord’s grand televisual comeback is well and truly reaching fever pitch.

While his latest string of adventures remain an enigma wrapped in a mystery (what else is new?), there’s already lots for us to be excited about, including an incoming companion, the return of friends and foes alike, and the added sense of impending doom as a result of it being both Peter Capaldi and Steven Moffat’s final full series at the helm of the TARDIS. Deep breaths, everybody, we’re in this together…

Because we never need an excuse to remind ourselves of the good times that lie ahead, here are 5 things we’re most looking forward to in Series 10. 5 things for the 5 weeks that remain. See, it’s exciting and topical. The best kind of countdown. You can thank us later.

1. “I’m Bill. I serve chips.”

Oh, but Bill, you’re so much more than that! Exactly what we’re not sure yet, but it’s safe to say that her life will change in unimaginable ways when she finally steps aboard the TARDIS to see the universe anew on 15th April. And she wouldn’t miss it for the world. Even if it kills her. Whatever that means…

Seriously, though. It doesn’t get much more exciting than kicking off a brand new series with a brand new companion to boot. Well, apart from kicking off a brand new series with a brand new Doctor, but we’ll get to that next year. For now, welcome aboard, Bill Potts!

2. “The bitch is back.”

Missy’s words, not ours! Although the full extent of her involvement in the new series remains to be seen, we know that she’ll definitely be back to rule another day (or at least try to…) in the two-part finale.

She was last seen in The Witch’s Familiar, in which she had a very good idea, so we dread to think what she’s got up her sleeve this time round. Missiles, probably.

3. Out with the new, in with the old…

That’s right, folks. The Mondasian Cybermen are BACK! First introduced in The Tenth Planet, the metal monsters have come a long way since their initial encounter with the First Doctor, so we’re looking forward to seeing them stripped back to basics in this year’s series finale. It’s Peter Capaldi’s dream come true, and it’s probably yours, too.

It’s the opposite of an upgrade, but it’s certainly a *stomp* in the right direction. Did you see what we did there?

4. Guessssss who’sssss back…

Yup, Missy and the Mondasian Cybermen aren’t the only familiar foes heading back to our screens in Series 10. The Ice Warriors -last seen in Cold War – will also be back. This time, though, with a twist. Love a twist.

According to writer Mark Gatiss, there will be something different about the reptilian rascals this time round, as “a new kind of Ice Warrior” is unleashed unto the world. Make of that what you will…

5. Shocks and surprises and twists, oh my!

If we’ve learned anything from Steven Moffat’s tenure thus far, it’s that it’s impossible to predict what he’s got in store. As his final full series as showrunner, though, this year the stakes are higher than ever. No doubt he’ll leave us shaking our fists in a combined outburst of rage and contentment. And we wouldn’t have it any other way. #BringItOn

has-bill-potts-fate-already-been-sealed

Bill Potts hasn’t even made her official on screen debut yet (Friend from the Future notwithstanding…), but already fans are speculating about her departure.

It’s nothing personal, Pearl. We’re just weird like that.

We can sort of be forgiven in this instance, however, as her intriguing monologue in the recently released Series 10 trailer has definitely left us with cause for concern. She’ll step aboard the TARDIS to see the universe anew on Saturday 15th April, and she wouldn’t miss it for the world…

Even if it kills her. Now, Doctor Who fans are known for reading too much into things, but it looks like that’s exactly what Steven Moffat wants us to be doing. Is she foreshadowing the tragic events to come, or is it another momentous Moffat red herring to throw us all off the scent? Let us know what you think of these developments in the comments section below…

the-mondasian-cybermen-are-back-but-what-does-it-all-mean

Just in case Steven Moffat’s final series as showrunner wasn’t sounding exciting enough already, they’ve just dropped the bombshell that he’s bringing back the Mondasian Cybermen, too. Be still our beating Whovian hearts.

Of course, the metal monsters are no strangers to the revived series, having been familiar – *ahem* – foes since their comeback in Series 2. Thus far they’ve been 2.0 versions from a parallel universe (with other tweaked variations thereupon…), but this time it’s out with the new and in with the old as the genuine articles are back to fight another day.

And we’re pretty damned excited. But of course, the news of their comeback begs the all-important question: what the hell is going on?! They first appeared in the First Doctor’s last serial The Tenth Planet, in which they attempted to take humans to their home planet of Mondas for conversion, and something tells us that this will still be high on their agenda…

But let’s not forget that Missy will also be back in the finale – has she formed an allegiance with the Cybermen? It certainly wouldn’t be the first time, and we bet her plan is even more devilish this time round, after her first attempt at world domination went down like a lead balloon. What’s more, the last time we saw her she did say she’d had a clever idea…

So, what’s it all about? There’s still a while before we find out (the episodes in question are still being filmed), but we’d love to hear your initial thoughts and theories. Their return is a dream come true for Peter Capaldi, but are you as excited to be welcoming them back? We dread to think what they’ll have in store, but it’s the series finale – and Steven Moffat’s last ever one – so it is safe to assume that it will all well and truly hit the fan. Bring it on, Moff.
