Holy crap was there a lot of television this year. While we’ve already covered our best and worst shows of the year, there were many specific moments in these series, as well as memorable highlights from shows that didn’t make it into our Top 10 list, that we’d be remiss to not highlight—or remind you of how awful…
Doctor Who has been on and off the air for nearly 54 years, and part of the key to the show’s longevity is that the baton of its lead character can be passed from actor to actor, from the First Doctor, William Hartnell, all the way to the upcoming 13th Doctor, Jodie Whittaker. But Doctor Who goes far beyond…
San Diego Comic-Con 2017 may be over, but io9's coverage lives on in our many, many posts, and we’ve collected them all here for you: movie and TV news and trailers, only-at-Comic-Con footage descriptions and experiences, amazing toys from the show floor, and so much more.
Doctor Who, “Blink”: A Hell Of A Good Episode Of Television
“Those pretend people you shoot at in computer games . . . now you know. They think they’re real. They feel it.” Way to ruin the fun for everybody, Doctor Who.
In the latest teaser for LEGO Dimensions’ season two content, the girl from Krypton introduces us to a stranded alien botanist in search of a phone. Perhaps there is one in that odd blue box.
The filmmakers from Sneaky Zebra are back with a sequel to a 2013 short film called Prop Wars, where countless movie replicas are used in an epic battle between a group of friends. Prop Wars: Prop Harder draws its inspiration from countless blockbusters including Tron: Legacy, The Force Awakens, Men In Black, Evil Dead…
We’ve known for a little while that The Doctor’s next companion has been cast. Now, the BBC has officially revealed who it is: Pearl Mackie.
This is what happens when Minecraft, a love for Doctor Who, video editing skills, and a spiffy custom map meet.
This year is full of great science fiction and fantasy TV series. Actually, 2016 is too full. Seriously, check out how long this list of new, returning and potentially premiering shows due out over the next 12 months is. When are we going to get a chance to leave the house and watch all those great movies, or read all…
Last week, my entire company took off, so I did what any sane person would-
relax and enjoy since my family doesn’t celebrate Christmas- make some extra money doing what I love: art.
This has been a tough year. Pop culture let us down in many ways, even as our political system and our social institutions revealed a deeper seam of ugliness. But speculative fiction still offers us hope: not just optimism about human ingenuity, but actual reasons to look forward and keep our heads up.
Last Friday’s Doctor Who Christmas special was a fascinating look at the contradictions of River Song. But it also gave her some much-needed closure, and her pairing with Peter Capaldi finally made the Doctor’s relationship with River feel like it had some weight.
River Song is arguably the most divisive character to come to Doctor Who in the past five years. She’s a swashbuckling archeologist who outwits almost everybody, and an unabashedly sexy older woman. She’s also so dependent on the Doctor as to be kind of a satellite.
It feels like it took forever for the LEGO Ideas Doctor Who set to arrive in stores, but—in this case especially—time is relative. It’s here now at least, and it’s fantastic.
I had some mixed feelings about tonight’s episode of Doctor Who. The plot of the episode (and the season) felt severely half-baked, to say the least, and great moments intermingled freely with a certain amount of WTF. But that ending? Was the greatest. That ending retroactively made the whole thing great.
For years now, Doctor Who has been exploring the dark side of the Doctor, that quasi-immortal time traveler from another planet. He turns people into weapons, he inspires his friends to be reckless, he makes his enemies worse, etc. But with this latest episode, we see the absolute worst indictment of the Doctor.
The release of the Doctor Who level pack for LEGO Dimensions unlocked some wibbly-wobbly, timey-wimey cartoon secrets in the game. What good is having a time machine if you can’t travel back to the stone age or forward to Earth’s flying car future?
I have a feeling “Sleep No More” will be another polarizing episode of Doctor Who. It’s sort of a clever experiment, though I’m not sure it entirely gels, and it’s probably saved by a fairly creepy twist ending.
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.
