The oncoming storm promised from the Cybermen plus the mystery of whom this other Doctor is has left fans on the edge of their seats. My biggest hope is that the payoff is worth all the hype. Overall, I thought The Haunting of Villa Diodati had some terrific moments of pure horror that worked well. … [Read more...] about Doctor Whooligan: Ascension of the Cybermen, Season 13 News, The Faceless Ones, Jacqueline Hill Biography, Eccleston at MegaCon

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times. This bit of Dickens aptly sums up the Matt Smith era. It was a great romp of fun, mystery and adventure. But it was also was a dark time with some serious melancholy going on. Matt Smith's era is also the one that sealed the deal with making Doctor Who a global phenomenon.

So I spent most of last week in Atlanta at Dragon Con celebrating all things Doctor Who. Clearly the Fiftieth Anniversary was well represented at Dragon Con 2013. The con was massively attended and the number of folks in Doctor Who related cosplay was up significantly from previous years.
