Doctor Who's tangerine dream and Clara's death wish in Last Christmas

TV Review Readers please note: THIS IS A POST-UK-BROADCAST REVIEW – THERE WILL BE SPOILERS! Brid-Aine says: I don’t usually have much time for schmaltz and sentimentality, but I make an exception for Christmas. I can take a certain amount of it at this time of year, the season of goodwill and all that. But the sight of the new and …

The TARDIS on Earl's Court Road

Google puts Dr Who's Tardis onto Street View - and you can get INSIDE

Of all the places and eras Doctor Who could visit, it seems he's decided to land in modern day Earls Court, London. At least, that's where you can find an interactive TARDIS in Google Maps, which has been beefed up to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Beeb's favourite Time Lord. A company called C Inside Media opened up …

Doctor Who: From Edwardian grump to Malcolm Tucker and back again

Doctor Who @ 50 Since Doctor Who returned in 2005, its producers have loved showing the Doctor’s previous selves, from the pen and ink portraits in Human Nature’s Journal of Impossible Things and the Cybermen’s infostamps in The Next Doctor, to the curious, multiple incarnation runaround in the Doctor’s personal time stream in The Name of the …

Delia and the Doctor: How to cook up a tune for a Time Lord

Doctor Who @ 50 As a theme tune, Ron Grainer’s music for Doctor Who needs no introduction. But to describe this unique piece of electronic music as solely Ron Grainer’s composition would be a disservice to the considerable musical contribution made by Delia Derbyshire, who in 1963 set about realising the original score at the BBC’s Radiophonic …

GALACTIC YO-YO: Doctor Who’s trips to Earth... and beyond

Doctor Who @ 50 We’ve seen how much of a tendency the Doctor has for visiting Earth relative to other planets in the universe, so what are the trends over his own timeline in his movements between Earth and elsewhere? When has the series felt most tied to our planet? For this chart, each story was assigned a score of +1 if it predominantly …

Who’s Who: a Reg quest to find the BEST DOCTOR

Doctor Who @ 50 As befits a show about a Time Lord, Doctor Who straddles the generations like a colossus. Even if you weren’t there in 1963, you picked up on the Doctor as some point during his travels. That means a shared experience, regardless of whether you grew up under the influence of Harold Wilson or Maggie Thatcher, whether you …

Want to BUILD YOUR OWN Tardis? First, get a star and set it spinning...

Doctor Who @ 50 A joke was doing the rounds at CERN two years ago: “Knock, knock.” “Neutrino.” “Who’s there?” The inspiration for the gag were CERN boffins working on the OPERA (Oscillation Project with Emulsion-tRacking Apparatus) experiment. They had apparently found that a group of sub-atomic particles called neutrinos had broken a …

Bucket? Check. Toilet plunger? Check. El Reg's 50 years of Doctor Who

Doctor Who @ 50 Fifty years ago in November – on November 23, to be precise – the BBC broadcast its first episode of Doctor Who. It was the start of what, in the world of JJ Abrams, we’d call “a franchise”. Just two TV programs have matched the Doctor for endurance and survival: Coronation Street and Blue Peter. In five decades the Doctor’s …

Google's Street View cars venture inside TARDIS

Dr Who fans the world over know that one of the few surviving Police Boxes on which the TARDIS is modelled can be found outside the entrance to Earl's Court tube station.

YES! It's the TARDIS PC!

No, it won’t allow you to enter the Vortex, “that mysterious region where time and space are”, as Terrance Dicks so aptly put it, “one.” Nor, even if you max out the available storage options, will it give you space enough to hold the entire Matrix. Its CPU is not APC. But - let’s be honest - you don’t buy a PC casing that …

The TARDIS through the ages

The TT Type 40, Mark 3 – it sounds like a motorbike made by BSA. But it is, as any fan will tell you, it is the model of the Doctor’s TARDIS, in which he departed without permission from Time Lord homeworld Gallifrey between 700 and 900 years ago – though we space-and-science-fiction nerks only got to start tuning in in 1963. …

Get shirty with Doctor Who

We love Doctor Who here at Vulture Central. And with the warmer seasons upon us, why not don some suitable attire while barbecue-ing over a steaming Dalek? These T-shirt costumes will lighten the mood at any party you go to. My personal favourite is the Tom Baker one, but they're all worthy additions to a Doctor Who enthusiast …

Doctor Who the 10th, David Tennant, is planning to get hitched to his fictional daughter Georgia Moffett, who also happens to be the real daughter of his fictional fifth incarnation.
