Since most fans hearts were saddened to hear that IDW won’t be putting out anymore Doctor Who comics, it’s with great excitement that I found out Titan Comics has committed to an ongoing comic series that features not just Ten, the fan favorite doctor, but also Eleven!
The first two covers in the series revealed below:
Gabriella Gonzalez is stuck in a dead-end job in her family’s New York Laundromat, dreaming of college and bigger, better and brighter things. So when a strange man with an even stranger big blue box barges into her life on the eve of the Day of the Dead celebrations – talking about an infestation of psychic aliens – she seizes her chance for adventure with both hands. After Donna’s tragic exit, the Doctor thought he was done with new companions. But Gabby Gonzalez is going to prove him wrong… if she survives the night…
Alice Obiefune has just lost her mother when the Doctor explodes into her life. But what does this grieving young woman have to do with the career of a ’70s musician, an amnesiac alien, and a terrifying cosmic threat?
Aren’t these covers gorgeous too? I’d collect them for the covers alone. Alice X. Zhang’s artwork is stunning. Nerdist says these two issues are expected in stores in July.

Oh how I am so thankful for Yavannauk, precious fan who is dedicated to getting all the amazing photos of Colin Morgan when I cannot and if you click photo credit link above, you can see loads and loads more of photos from the set. So yeah, my chances of crossing the ocean to see him on set right now is impossible, but seeing him thankfully is not — because lookie here at these:
Isn’t he gorgeous… and look at his rising star. We announced yesterday, he was returning to television in the second series/season of The Fall. However, right now, he is on set of the Testament of Youth, a film based upon Vera Brittain’s biography.
Testament of Youth will feature Hayley Atwell, Kit Harington, Emily Watson, Dominic West, Alicia Vikander, Colin Morgan and so many more names you should recognize if you’re an anglophile. It is being produced in conjunction with BBC Films and Heyday Films. The story synopsis on IMDb merely states: A British girl recalls coming of age during World War I.
However, this story is so much more:
Testament of Youth has been acclaimed as a classic for its description of the impact of World War I on the lives of women and the middle-class civilian population of Great Britain. The book shows how the impact extended into the postwar years. It is also considered a classic in feminist literature for its depiction of a woman’s pioneer struggle to forge an independent career in a society only grudgingly tolerant of educated women.
I am so excited about all this news and getting to see the photos coming from this set. Colin Morgan will always remain a favorite of mine from his performance on Doctor Who and Merlin. So much is going on with that Merlin cast too. Have you seen how they’re dispersing all over the silver screen. Woohoo!

Really?! How did the sci-fi genre get shredded down to these two shows? Supernatural vs. Doctor Who… just uhm… wow! Not that it is a hard choice for me. Sorry Supernatural… you’re good, but in the Science Fiction scheme of shows, Doctor Who takes that prize… at least for me.
If you want a say in this crazy-schemed battle of Whovians versus SPN… go HERE. Right now, I think maybe… Doctor Who is winning. Just so you know though, I am not reading through all those comments. Fans of both these fandoms get crazy passionate and I’m just not up for that kind of fight.

Who better to bring back to taunt and torment the new Doctor than his wife, River Song. Yes, rumor states she’ll be back for Doctor Who, season 8 and while I utilize a cliche in my wife rhetoric that’s really what Steven Moffat so often has River doing to the Doctor. She’s quite the spitfire, which I like… if none of you are getting that and keeps the Doctor humble. Someone has to do it. Have you seen how inflated his ego has been lately?!
Although, maybe it’s Moffat who is nervous about the introduction of the new Doctor, because he seems to think surrounding the two-hearted alien with familiar faces is the best way to ease the Doctor’s new face into Whovians’ hearts:
“This time I’ve made sure we’ve got a bunch of characters around him so that we can have a new Doctor introduced and we can push that Doctor a bit further if you’ve got a familiar world around him.” (x)
However, with Peter Capaldi at the helm of Doctor Who who knows what kind of teasing will go on. The Doctor will certainly seem seasoned, but as for wit, Capaldi’s known for his biting kind. This should get interesting, yeah? And Alex Kingston is gorgeous and smart so she’s a welcome addition always on my television screen.

Just I cannot with this rumor?! The Master is awesome… so freaking awesome and I adored him, especially the dynamic John Simm and David Tennant built up between the two characters during their run on Doctor Who. But what am I to do with this news?! Has the Master come back for the good of the doctor, because really — isn’t he a good guy now?
And this rumor makes him sound like he’s coming back as a nemesis, someone the doctor must fight. I don’t know… I don’t know… Whovians what are we to think? What are you thinking?!
Although I must say I adore the possibility of this guy –
yeah… this guy would make an awesome Master, yes?!
Rumors started flying when Sylvester McCoy spoke at a recent Con:
The actor revealed he knew who the new Master was. Naturally, as a Time Lord, the master can and does regenerate. Another attendee says McCoy revealed the new Master will be very scary,” which is a good thing because he’s a pretty terrifying being. Naturally, this isn’t an official announcement and should be taken with a pinch of salt. McCoy could simply be having a little fun with the fans. (x)
And you know then fans who are too smart for their own good started playing around and speculating and this tweet happened and my mind was blown.
Someone piece it back together with facts… I need the facts! And I am so sorry if you’re avoiding any and all possible things about Season 8 of Doctor Who, but I promise you, I’ve no idea if this news is true or not. So rumor is just that… a rumor that could or could not be a speculative spoiler, but I DO NOT KNOW!
