The Doctor Is Back In The New Series 9 Doctor Who Trailer!

Hot and fresh from the Doctor Who panel at this years San Deigo Comic-Con, yes it is our first good look at what series 9 has in store for us. Obviously Peter Capaldi is back, along with a few returning foes like the Daleks (yay!) and Missy (ugh.)

We also get a stinger showing us that whoever Maisie Williams plays, (good money is on it not being Arya Stark but fingers crossed for a Game of Thrones crossover episode,) well it is clear that she and the Doctor have a history.

Of course we’ll be highlighting the high points from today’s Doctor Who panel in our forthcoming SDCC review show that will be recorded after SDCC wraps up this weekend since our TARDIS is currently in the shop.

Doctor Who is back on TV screens this September on the 19th.

‘s Guide to the New Doctor Who

RadioBastard-TITLE-112

Welcome to this very special Doctor Who filled edition of the RadioBastard Podcast! This time on the show, Jeremy and Jason are talking about Peter Capaldi‘s full debut as The Doctor in “Deep Breath“, Jenna Louise Coleman‘s possible exit and what John Hurt smells like with Doctor Who expert and Panama hat enthusiast Steven Sautter.

TV Review: Peter Capaldi Defies Expectations in ‘Doctor Who’ Premiere

doctor who 1

It’s been too long but last night we finally got a chance to watch Peter Capaldi play the Doctor in full as Doctor Who returned for the 8th series of the modern era (which is an unfortunate way to describe the New Who and the Old Who in that it makes the past versions sound positively archaic). As we found out, though, our reaction to the new Doctor wasn’t quite as important as Clara’s reaction.

I have to admit that I wasn’t an avowed fan of the puppy dog cuteness of the Matt Smith/Jenna Coleman pairing. Too much flirting. Not banter, not the occasional cheek — doe eyed, cotton candy flirting. I love that those antics have been put out to pasture and I adore that we got to see that in the beginning, but while it might be a welcome change for some viewers, it was clearly a whiplash inducing course shift for Clara (Coleman), who strongly rejected the Doctor right away because he was no longer “Her” Doctor.

Versus Johnny Depp, the New Doctor, and Shark… Weak

BastardCast-408-Title

This time on The BastardCast, Jeremy, Jason, and habitual guest Matthew Jackson discuss the latest Batman casting rumors (and Jason’s desperate desire to be Robin), why Johnny Depp should care a little more and suck a little less, and why Peter Capaldi will make a better Doctor Who than a marzipan dildo.

Also on the show: Boba Fett’s new reality TV show, why The Flash sounds like a kinder, fast moving version of Dexter, how DC Entertainment and the ani-Maniacs over at Warner Bros. need to grow a pair and not screw the Flash TV show up, and visual confirmation that Gustavo Fring is alive, well, and still making dope-ass chicken fingers in New Jersey.

Do you need more? Apparently, so did Bruce Willis, because Sly Stallone has taken to twitter in a manly way to possibly diss his former co-star while also announcing that Harrison Ford is entering The Stallone Zone to star in Expendables 3: Rise of the Hernia Sling.

Still not enough? Alright, alright, Harrison Ford also lays out his idea of an acceptable Indiana Jones swan song, Karl Urban gets an offer from one of the boys that he will surely refuse after urging the Star Trek creative team to embrace exploration, and George Lucas‘ dirty little secret about also being Michael McDonald is revealed thanks to “The Butter Song”.

All that and whatever the opposite of wholesome is ON The BastardCast!RoombaThe BastardCast: Held down from Nerdist-like podcast-y glory by those damn American critics.
