In theaters now: Mr. Peabody & Sherman - Official DOCTOR WHO Trailer (2014)
The Real History Of Sci-Fi Narrated by Mark Gatiss, Doctor Who writer, actor, and co-creator of the BBC’s Sherlock, the series determines why science fiction is not merely a genre… for its audience it’s a portal to a multi-verse – one that is all too easy to get lost in. Episode 4 of 4 looks at:
What if we could travel not just through space, but through time itself? If you could travel through time, would you change the past or the future? What if you found it couldn’t be changed? What price does the time traveller — and the people they are closest to — pay? This is a journey from H. G. Wells’ The Time Machine through ideas like The Grandfather Paradox and The Butterfly Effect to the professional time traveller that is the ever popular Doctor Who. Steven Moffat, David Tennant, Karen Gillan, and Neil Gaiman offer a unique perspective on the Doctor. Edward James Olmos reveals the hidden meaning of the language he created for the vision of the future that is Blade Runner. Bob Gale and Christopher Lloyd take us behind the scenes of Back to the Future, while Ed Solomon describes the joy of solving a time travel conundrum for Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure. But what would be the physical and emotional cost to the time traveller? Audrey Niffenegger explains what inspired her novel The Time Traveller’s Wife. And what if someone from the future tried to travel back in time to warn us? Would we believe them? From the apocalyptic tones of 12 Monkeys to the drama of Quantum Leap and the comedy of Groundhog Day, time travel is a subject that has been irresistible to the creators of every type of science fiction.

Doctor Who returned during Easter weekend on Saturday, 30 March, 2013 in a fantastic adventure written by the show’s lead writer and executive producer, Steven Moffat. "The Doctor locates the new time zone that Clara Oswald has reincarnated in, and it's present day London, where WiFi is everywhere. Humanity lives in a wifi soup, but something dangerous is lurking in the signals, picking off minds and imprisoning them. As Clara becomes the target of this insidious menace, the Doctor races to save her and the world from an ancient enemy", and the Doctor and Clara (codename: Woman 7) on a motorbike. "The Bells of St John" will mark the official introduction of the Doctor's newest companion, Clara Oswald, played by Jenna-Louise Coleman. Having already made two appearances last year, the opening episode will be the first time fans get to see the Clara that will accompany the Doctor across the series' next eight adventures. Set in London against the backdrop of new and old iconic landmarks, The Shard and Westminster Bridge, 'The Bells of St John' will also establish a new nemesis, the Spoonheads, who will battle the Doctor as he discovers something sinister is lurking in the WiFi. The episode - the first in a run of 8 more (episodes 9-16) - is directed by Colm McCarthy whose previous credits include Hustle, Spooks and Endeavour. It will take great intelligence to accomplish
The seventh new episode "The Rings of Akhaten" takes Clara to another planet, the eighth is back on Earth, aboard a Russian nuclear submarine facing an Ice Warrior in "Cold War", what could possibly go wrong? Next they explore a haunted house, though probably not a Haunted Mansion
"The sadness will last forever" Vincent Van Gogh
Steven Moffat: "It's the 50th year of Doctor Who and look what's going on! We're up in the sky and under the sea! We're running round the rings of an alien world and then a haunted house. There's new Cybermen, new Ice Warriors and a never before attempted journey to the center of the TARDIS. And in the finale, the Doctor's greatest secret will at last be revealed! If this wasn't already our most exciting year it would be anyway!" Meanwhile the series' stellar list of guest stars this year include: Celia Imrie; Richard E Grant; Warwick Davis, Jessica Raine; Dougray Scott and Tamzin Outhwaite, as well as for the first time on screen together: Diana Rigg and daughter Rachael Stirling. Diana Rigg costarred in the 1960s TV-series "The Avengers" with guest stars including John Baker, who later guest starred in 3 episodes of Doctor Who including Colony in Space: Episode One (1971) as a Time Lord. Bernard Cribbins also appeared in 2 episodes of The Avengers, the only actor to appear in both the "Doctor Who" feature film Daleks' Invasion Earth: 2150 A.D. (1966) and the current revived television series as Donna's dad.
The upcoming eight Doctor Who episodes will also include installments from Neil Cross (creator of Luther), Mark Gatiss (Steven Moffat’s Sherlock co-creator), Stephen Thompson (another Sherlocker, who also wrote The Curse of the Black Spot), and, yes, Neil Gaiman, who previously dazzled Whovians with his Season 6 valentine to the TARDIS, “The Doctor’s Wife.”
The Ice Warriors are an imposing, militaristic race from Mars that first appeared opposite the Second Doctor in the 1967 adventure, The Ice Warriors. In that story the Doctor’s companion was Victoria Waterfield and who better to ask about the Martian menace than the actress who played her, Deborah Watling. We caught up with her at the weekend and she was delighted to hear of the Ice Warriors’ return. ‘They’re terrifying! Absolutely terrifying! It will be lovely to see them again,’ she revealed. Cold War indeed
They attempted an invasion of Earth in The Seeds of Death and faced the Third Doctor in 1972’s The Curse of Peladon. By this stage they had largely renounced their warlike approach and even teamed up with the Doctor. But a rogue element of Ice Warriors was up to no good in The Monster of Peladon, showing that their old bellicose tendencies had not been entirely eradicated… More recently, the icy aliens were glimpsed very briefly in a flashback sequence during The Sarah Jane Adventures: Death of the Doctor and they were mentioned by the Tenth Doctor in The Waters of Mars.
The Ice Warriors return in the third episode of the new run in an adventure featuring David Warner and written by Mark Gatiss. Mark reveals 'I've always loved the iconic Ice Warriors and have been badgering to bring them back for ages. And now they're on a ssssssubmarine! With Russians! I'm a very happy anorak right now'. The final words go to Deborah Watling. ‘The originals were pretty cumbersome,’ she told us, ‘but that somehow added to effect… They’re wonderful!’
Filming has started on the new Doctor Who movie, set in 1963, about the creation of the BBC TV series, according to BBC America.com starring David Bradley, best known as Argus Filch in the Harry Potter movies, in the role of the first Doctor, played back then by William Hartnell. “I first heard about this role from Mark [Gatiss] while watching the Diamond Jubilee flotilla from the roof of the National Theatre. When he asked if I would be interested, I almost bit his hand off! Mark has written such a wonderful script not only about the birth of a cultural phenomenon, but a moment in television’s history. William Hartnell was one of the finest character actors of our time and as a fan I want to make sure that I do him justice. I’m so looking forward to getting started”

River Song is an archaeologist from the future who the Doctor keeps meeting in the wrong order. He first met her on the planet of The Library, but we haven’t yet seen where she first met him. Her journal is packed with information the Doctor feels he shouldn’t know about yet. They are going to be very close: River knows the Doctor’s real name, she has a sonic screwdriver of her own and she even knows how to fly the TARDIS. The tragedy is, the Doctor knows how River dies, so when the two of them meet at the crash of the Byzantium, share that picnic at Asgard and whatever they did together at the Singing Towers, he’ll have a terrible secret that he won’t be able to tell her. River has a knack for getting into trouble and knows the Doctor can help her get out of it. But as for just how much they mean to each other: spoilers! Let's just say, the final episode of 2012 is titled The Wedding of River Song. As for Christmas 2012, watch for the return of an impossible girl!

Kidnapped by his oldest foe, the Doctor is forced on an impossible mission – to a place even the Daleks are too terrified to enter… the Asylum. A planetary prison confining the most terrifying and insane of their kind, the Doctor and the Ponds must find an escape route. But with Amy and Rorys relationship in meltdown, and an army of mad Daleks closing in, it is up to the Doctor to save their lives, as well as the Pond’s marriage. Helped by a mystery woman, the impossible girl: a human who has died twice and popped into the Doctor’s life at different times and on different planets. The Time Lord is perplexed but intrigued and we know he’s going to look for answers…and Clara! The Dalek travel machines house Kaleds, to survive. However, in the course of his experiments, Davros deliberately removed what he considered to be debilitating emotions from the mutants and a force of evil was spawned! They were born without any ability to feel compassion or pity, motivated only by hate, fear and an implacable belief that they were the superior creatures in the Universe. Original Air Date: 1 September, 2012. Season 7 Episode 1
Dinosaurs On A Spaceship
In 1334 BC the Doctor saved Nefertiti’s people, defeating a weapon-bearing, giant locust attack ‘rather brilliantly’ (even if he did say so himself).

An unmanned spaceship now hurtles towards certain destruction – unless the Doctor can save it, and its impossible cargo… of dinosaurs! By his side a ragtag gang of adventurers; a big game hunter, an Egyptian Queen and a surprised 2nd member of the Pond family. But little does the Doctor know there is someone else onboard who will stop at nothing to keep hold of his precious, prehistoric cargo. Season 7 Episode 2

Although Rory was able to escape the grisly fate they had intended for him, involving years spent in Winter Quay without Amy, this encounter had a heart-breaking end when the Ponds were both taken from the Doctor – zapped back in time by a solitary Angel in a graveyard.

Doctor Who: The Doctor, The Widow and The Wardrobe
Intro, not broadcast in USA
Evacuated to a house in Dorset from war-torn London, Madge Arwell and her two children, Lily and Cyril, are greeted by a madcap caretaker whose mysterious Christmas gift leads them into a magical wintry world. At first glance it's easy to underestimate Madge who seems like an ordinary mother, doting on her husband, Reg, and her two children, Lily and Cyril. She has a habit of taking in 'waifs and strays' and can even come across as slightly dotty. But when her family is threatened, Madge Arwell reveals a steely determination, pulling a gun on the Harvest Rangers, taking control of their futuristic tripod, braving acid rain and piloting through the time-space vortex with a forest in her head. All that, and when it comes to locks, she's very good with a pin...
The stunning opening sequences in the spaceship corridors were filmed on in Uskmouth Power Station. Conditions were so noisy that the crew wore ear protectors throughout the shoot. The plane that Reg pilots is a Lancaster Bomber. The sequences involving the aircraft were shot in East Kirkby, Lincolnshire. The plane used is a genuine bomber that flew during the war. The sequence where the Doctor shows the Arwells around the refurbished house originally included a scene featuring a 'haunted' coal cellar! The Harvest Rangers are from Androzani Major - a planet in the Sirius System, introduced in the 1984 story which saw the Fifth Doctor regenerate - The Caves of Androzani. The Wooden Queen is played by Doctor Who veteran, Paul Kasey, whose previous roles have included a Cyberman in Closing Time, Nephew in the Doctor's Wife and Ood Sigma in The End of Time. The Doctor references the Forest of Cheam, an allusion to the 2005 story, The End of the World. 12/25/2011 tv-pg

He played an actor who once played a time traveller on children's television in a show called The Amazing Lollipop Man. He now finds his life consists of giving DVD commentaries and posing for photos in his old costume, though nowadays he can't do the buttons up. The episode is written by David Semple, who told DoctorWhoNews.com: "Sylvester gives an extraordinary performance: funny, touching and incredibly inventive. He also manages to appear 40 years old in one scene and 60-something in the next, despite the fact that Doctors is shot in a day and he filmed the young scenes in the morning and the aged ones in the afternoon."
