|We’re in the final stretch run of The Year (and a bit) of No Doctor Who, as Series 10 is less than two weeks away! There’s spoiler-free talk of synopses, the character of Bill Potts is revealed to be gay (hooray!), and there are various promotional things happening in and around the premiere of “The Pilot” on April 15. And we take our last look inside the Miniscope for this year with a detailed analysis of the works of writer David Fisher, author of four stories from the later Tom Baker era!|
– Synopsis for The Pilot!
|An old enemy returns (or two!) in “The Magician’s Apprentice”, the first new Doctor Who in many months and the premiere episode of Series 9. Daleks and Missy and Davros, oh my! What did the Three Who Rule think? And what did they have to say about Jenna Coleman leaving Doctor Who? Tune into over an hour of their mad bleatings, including musings on #TeamHoodie, clam bombs, and the staggeringly important matter of the Capaldi Bouffant!|
– Series 9, Episode 1 “The Magician’s Apprentice”
|News! News! News! So much news this week, from Vines of P-Cap playing guitar to Series 9 rumours, royal honours, convention doings and undoings, and (fake, but awesome) Doctor Who LEGO video games!

– Doctor Who Series 9…Episode 10 Details!
|Happy post-10th Who birthday, everyone! What with Peter Capaldi visiting the Doctor Who Experience and entertaining children with birthday cakes and charm, it’s easy to forget that other things were happening in the world of Who this week, like Big Finish announcing they’ll be making their audio adventures until at least 2020, or a mad genius 3D printing a bust of the aforementioned Mr. Capaldi. All mere preamble though, as this week we bring you an interview with biographer Richard Marson, who is following up his excellent book on John Nathan-Turner with “Drama and Delight: The Life of Verity Lambert.” Intrigued? Then lend us the use of your aural cavities for an hour and change!|
– Cast & Crew…10th Birthday Messages!
|Ten years ago, a dream came true for many long-time fans of Doctor Who. A show long feared dead returned, stronger and better than ever….but in order for that to happen, many talented people had to come together in front of the camera and behind the scenes for a show no-one yet believed in. Director Joe Ahearne was one such individual, directing five Eccleston-era stories and witness to the chaos of that first season. He spoke to us about those days, his experiences working with Eccleston and RTD, and more! We also have snippets from press conferences held at the time, to give you more of a flavor of the atmosphere as the clock counted down to the return of Doctor Who. Happy anniversary, everyone!|
– Series 9…Block 3 Now Filming!
|Fancy a return to Alzarius? We did, so we contacted classic Doctor Who and Big Finish writer Andrew Smith about “Mistfall,” his upcoming Big Finish audio play which sends the Fifth Doctor, Turlough, Nyssa and Tegan back to E-Space. Andrew also joins us to look at the news of the week, including stats, plush Tennants, and a possible controversy concerning Netflix! Toby Hadoke also makes a special appearance to reflect with Steven on the life and times of Bernard Kay, the accomplished actor who appeared in The Daleks, the Crusade, The Faceless Ones and Colony in Space, and who sadly passed away this week. Enjoy, and look forward to next week, where we continue our Chicago TARDIS interviews with the fantastic Camille Coduri!|
