From this weekend, the UK TV channel Horror is screening episodes of classicDoctor Who—from the First Doctor to the Seventh—and have put together a beautiful animated trailer to whet appetites and generally encourage viewers.
And they’ve done such a good job you could easily use it to encourage fans of the recent series to dip a toe in classic Who waters
Ok. Just checking.
Happy (early) birthday Peter Capaldi! We’re celebrating by bringing some of Peter’s own Doctor Who fan art to life. Watch the video now!

Happy Birthday to our Twelfth Doctor, Peter Capaldi!
We can’t wait to see what you have in store for us in the new season!
How long are you going to stay with me? Forever.
"You’re going to do great things. Because I believe in you. And you should believe in yourself too."

The Nerdist did an interview this morning with John Barrowman, our very own Captain Jack Harkness, and here’s what he had to say about Peter Capaldi as the Twelfth Doctor:
I think it’s very interesting, the way they’ve gone from Christopher to David and then Matt Smith — who was much younger — and now they’ve gone back to an older, Tom Baker-ish age Doctor, which I grew up with and so I think it’s interesting. I think it’ll be really good! He’s a fan of Doctor Who, and when you get people who are fans playing the roles it works. There’s no doubt that it works, so I have no fear that he’s going to be great.
That moment when you realize that David Tennant is one of us.
This is the best thing that has ever happened.
I keep this blog focused on my art and animation work, but just this once, I’m going to go on a slight tangent to talk about how uncommonly kind Peter Capaldi is.
Backstory brief: Last year longtime fan f***yespetercapaldi (speaking of uncommonly kind) spearheaded a Twelfth Doctor fanart/letter/photo collab on Tumblr and compiled all the contributions into a scrapbook, which she mailed to PCap for Christmas. More recently, he responded and those of us who contributed found ourselves receiving painted and autographed postcards like mine shown above.
Now, he could have drawn one picture, made photocopies for everyone and signed those and we would have been THRILLED. He didn’t do that.
He drew and painted this design multiple times by hand. He made sure each person had an individual, personally made piece. For a bunch of artists who know how much time and effort goes into our own art, it’s incredibly touching and unexpected. (And for me, he wrote both the worst and best thing he could have written, because drawing is hard but it’s worth keeping at it.)
Point is, Peter Capaldi is not just taking on his dream role; he’s aware that he’s just inherited a huge worldwide fanbase, and is trying his very hardest to do right by them. It’s a masterclass in class, so shoutout to the Doctor, for being the Doctor for us, before series 8 has even aired.
And now I have to keep drawing, dammit. Doctor’s orders.
