Re: Doctor Who - Season 31

And now we have these news, my fellow Whovians...a much shorter season of the Doctor for 2012 apparently to make room for a more ambitious run in 2013 (the series' 50th anniversary):

Re: So long, Sarah Jane

Well put, Steve, Yes, we are so much the poorer. And I am with you on SJA: it beautifully captured the spirit of early Doctor Who: that sense of wonder, of adventure, while tackling some heavy duty issues (ageing, divorce, death, etc.) that are very rarely tackled with honesty and seriousness on so-...

So long, Sarah Jane

Sad, sad, sad day indeed. Elisabeth Sladen, our Sarah Jane Smith, died this morning of cancer at the unbelievably young age of 63. Cancer, that evil, evil motherfucker is still claiming the lives of many a good people. First the Brig and now Sarah Jane…and just four days before the premiere of the b...

So long, Brigadier

It saddens me to report that Nicholas Courtney, a.k.a. Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart, has passed away. His memory lives on thanks to all those wonderful Classic Doctor Who DVDs:

Re: Doctor Who - Season 31

Steve: That article is a tad old, so here's some updates: First: Christmas Special airs Xmas Day on BBC America here in the United States at 9/8 Central. Second: According to a recent interview with Piers Wanger, there will be no old monsters in this brand-new-split-in-two season. Hot cocoa and pija...

Re: Doctor Who - Season 31

Hey, Diana: Olga and I are doing very well, considering that I am now temporarily jobless. The investors at the media company I was working for were unable to secure the capital that would help us publish and even expand the magazine next year. So Café will, for now, be a digital-only publication re...

Re: Doctor Who - Season 31

Well, considering that the original item came from The Sun and seeing how, after I checked it out, The Sun does not give actual attribution to the quote (did they interview Moffat, did he tweet about? where did Moffat's quote come from?) I would be somewhat skeptical. Makes some sense to bring the o...
