Sure, BattleBots was cool, but let’s not forget the real father of Robot TV deathmatches broadcast for our pleasure: the classic BBC series Robot Wars. Fans of violent robotic combat rejoice then, because the BBC are bringing back the series with more robots, and some mandatory science bits to distract you from the…
Remember the BBC’s incredible documentary series Planet Earth? And how one of the stars was the footage of the Superb Bird of Paradise, and his Big Happy Face dance? That, of all things, is what Jaime Margary decided to dress as this Halloween.
Everything is, indeed, awesome. Following a deal with the BBC that saw the inclusion of Doctor Who in the video game Lego Dimensions as well as get its own fantastic Lego playset, it looks like the Doctor may be taking a trip to the big screen... to join Emmet, Wyldstyle and friends for The Lego Movie 2.
It feels like ages since Lego announced that it would be making a set based on Doctor Who—but now we don’t need a time machine to find a future where it’s out. It’s finally happening this December, and it’s looking rather fantastic if you’re a fan of all things wibbly, wobbly, and maybe even timey and wimey too.
Man, seeing Daniel Radcliffe with a beard sure is strange.
Today, the BBC put out a press release stating that it was making "a new BBC Two drama based on Grand Theft Auto." Make that, a poorly worded press release. Because this isn't the GTA drama you're hoping for. That being said, it still sounds promising.
"Doctor Who is set to become 'Blocktor Who' when characters from the series arrive on the Xbox 360 edition of Minecraft in September." Ugh.
Overpriced DLC, outsourced boss battles, fake Wii U exclusivity, and a lot of bullshit has surrounded Deus Ex: Human Revolution, but put all that behind you because today you grab Deus Ex: Human Revolution Director's Cut for $16 on PS3 and 360. That's the lowest price so far for this must play that a lot of people…
David Attenborough, the journalist behind many beloved nature documentaries including the Planet Earth series, is going fully next-gen for one of his upcoming projects. It's a movie called Conquest of the Skies, and unlike any of Attenborough's previous work, it's being made for the Oculus Rift virtual reality…
30 years ago I received my first proper Apple-compatible computer, and a single game to play on it — Infocom's text-based The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. The BBC has prettied up the game for its 30th anniversary, and it's still just as wonderful as it was way back when.
Infocom's classic The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy turns 30 this year, and to celebrate, the BBC will publish an updated online version of the game on March 8, the 36th anniversary of the series' first radio broadcast.
You have to hand it to the BBC. It's always exciting to see an adult, nuanced debate about responsible parenting. Wait, what is Luigi doing there in the background?
It's not just the 50th anniversary Doctor Who special that's packed with easter eggs and references; apparently, video game developers are also in love with Daleks and the TARDIS. The fine folks at DYKGaming collected the 11 best Doctor Who-related easter eggs and wrapped them up in the video above.
At this point, between this past weekend's 50th Anniversary special and the upcoming regeneration of the 11th (or 12th) Doctor, my Doctor Who excitement level is so high I don't care that this week's mobile game release looks like Puzzle & Doctors.
I sort of regret talking up this new footage from Sherlock season 3 yesterday, because with all said and done today there's not really that much to it. Still, a little Cumberbatch is better than no Cumberbatch at all, right?
If you're anywhere near as obsessed with the BBC's Sherlock as I am, then you'll be thrilled to know that new footage will debut in the morning. Season 2 ended on something of a cliffhanger, and we're all waiting eagerly to see how exactly things will resume.
I end up watching a lot of news in my line of work, and one thing that is frequently hammered home is this: mainstream American media doesn't know what they're doing with games.
