First trailer for the Doctor Who 50th Anniversary special An Adventure in Space and Time! [video]

The first trailer for the Doctor Who 50th Anniversary special An Adventure in Space and Time has just been released and it looks great. Starring David Bradley as William Hartnell this docudrama will tell the tale of how Doctor Who went from an idea to a phenomenon. "This special one-off drama travels back in time to 1963 to see how Doctor Who was first brought to the screen. Actor William Hartnell felt trapped by a succession of hard-man roles. Wannabe producer Verity Lambert was frustrated by the TV industry's glass ceiling. Both of them were to find unlikely hope and unexpected challenges in the form of a Saturday tea-time drama. Allied with a team of unusual but brilliant people, they went on to create the longest running science fiction series ever made." Enjoy!

Long Island gets its first Doctor Who convention, LI Who!

Image
Fans of the British sci-fi show DoctorWho materialized in Ronkonkoma, New York on Long Island this past weekend for the island's first Doctor Who convention, L.I. Who. The convention was held at the Clarion Hotel on November 8-10th and as this is right around the corner from me there was no way that I was going to miss it! Just like the TARDIS (the show's spaceship that can travel through time and space) the convention appeared small on the outside but was a lot bigger on the inside. I was pleasantly surprised to see how much there was to do throughout the weekend.

The convention housed a small vendor room but what it lacked in quantity it made up for in quality. There were about 14 vendors in the actual vendor room and about 5 in the hallway. I must say that for a small vendor list they did a great job at selecting the vendors as everything you could want was covered. You could have purchased various kind of shirts, cosplay pieces, art, jewelry, audio CDs, toys, patches/pins…

Take a look at the new Ms. Marvel, Kamala Kahn, in her new outfit!

Image
Check out this awesome drawing of the new Ms. Marvel, Kamala Kahn, created by professional artist Jeremy Roberts! I am a big fan of the new outfit that Ms. Marvel will be wearing. It's conservative (which will probably make a lot of people happy considering how some costumes look today) yet it still accents a modern look and the age of the character. Well done!

Paul McGann returns to Doctor Who in the new mini episode The Night of the Doctor! [video]

The BBC has released the first minisode for the Doctor Who 50th Anniversary and it is titled "The Night of the Doctor"! This new mini episode not only sees the return of the amazing Paul McGann to the role of the Doctor but it confirms the new name of John Hurt's Doctor. This episode will truly have you cheering. "The Bringer of Darkness, the Oncoming Storm, the Doctor, the Warrior - A Time Lord! The 50th Anniversary features Matt Smith, David Tennant and a mysterious incarnation played by John Hurt. Only one appears in the mini episode, The Night of the Doctor. But which? 23.11.13 #SaveTheDay." Enjoy!



WOW! I loved it!! I was so incredibly excited to see the return of Paul McGann! There is so much to talk about in this episode. Why was Cass so afraid and mistrusting of the Doctor when she realized he was a Timelord. What reputation did the Timelords create within the Time War? They just made all of McGann's audio books canon since he just named his compani…

The Doctors get ambushed and Rose Tyler stands proud in 2 new Doctor Who 50th Anniversary photos!

Image
As the Doctor Who 50th Anniversary approaches the trailers and photos are beginning to roll out. Check out these two new photos from the episode. The first features the Tenth Doctor (David Tennant), the Eleventh Doctor (Matt Smith), and the Doctor (John Hurt) being surrounded by Queen Elizabeth's guards in a forest. I like how Ten and Eleven are quick to get their defenses up, via their sonic screwdrivers, and John Hurt's Doctor is just standing there unimpressed by the situation. The second photo is out first amazing look at actress Billie Piper as Rose Tyler in her new outfit.  It also makes you wonder what point in time is this Rose Tyler from. Why is she dressed like this? Either way I think she looks great.

What do you think of these two new photos to be released?
