Doctor Who on the cover of Entertainment Weekly!

Does this week’s issue of Entertainment Weekly defy the laws of physics by being bigger on the inside than it would appear from looking at its exterior? Fans of the British science fiction show Doctor Who may well think so. For this week’s cover story, senior writer Clark Collis travels to the UK to meet with Peter Capaldi, the new star of the now 51-year-old time travel saga, and to find out what fans can expect from the forthcoming season of Doctor Who, which premieres on BBC America on Aug. 23. “He’s more alien than we’ve seen him for a while,” says the actor, speaking about his version of the eccentric Time Lord. “He is less patient with the foibles of human beings.”
In addition to Capaldi, Collis also spoke with the actor’s costar Jenna Coleman and showrunner Steven Moffat who tackled such burning as questions as “Will Capaldi’s previous appearances in the Who universe be referenced this season?” and “What will happen in the two-part finale?” Collis even got to drive the Doctor’s bigger-on-the-inside time- and space-ship the TARDIS and did so without busting anything which, according to production designer Michael Pickwoad, makes him a more careful temporal navigator than previous Who star Matt Smith (“He was very good at breaking things”). We also persuade Capaldi to talk about the old monsters he’d like his Doctor to face and offer a sartorial breakdown of the Time Lord’s many looks through the show’s half-century history. Never seen Doctor Who (and feel a bid daunted by that history)? Then feel free to peruse our guide to how you can get into Who. [x] 

This copy will be on stands Friday, August 1st, and you can purchase it online here. If you live in Canada or elsewhere outside the United States and would like to place a back issue order, please call 1-813-979-6828.

A few weeks ago we announced that BBC America would be displaying Doctor Who fanart at the BBCA booth at San Diego Comic Con. We received an outstanding number of awesome submissions from Whovian artists and featured some on BBC America’s video cube! Which looked something like this:

(Actually it looked exactly like this) 

Here’s a slideshow of all the Doctor Who fan art that was chosen to be featured. Unfortunately the music needed to be removed from the video, but maybe if we all sing doo-wee-ooo~ at the same time we’ll all be able to hear it!

All week long we’ve been celebrating Doctor Who by reminiscing about where we started, who got us into the show, and talking about what being a Whovian means to us. To end our  #NewToWho week - let’s share the show with someone new! 
Being able to share your love for a show/movie/podcast/brand twitter/fanfic/etc with each other is the best part about fandom, and when you can share your fandom with someone else, it’s a fantastic feeling. It’s also very rewarding, because showing this thing that you love so much to somebody else gives you the opportunity to support them through the roller coaster of emotions they experience as they watch for the very first time. It’s like being #NewToWho all over again! 


And don’t forget that one of the best things about Whovians is that ANYONE can be one. You can watch an episode with your parents, or your dog, your cat, your librarian, the person who does your taxes, local zookeeper, a friend who lives on the other side of the world, the ghost that haunts your room sometimes, your friend’s cat (make sure you ask permission,) imaginary friend, adipose plush, literally anybody.

And what better way to introduce someone new to the show than with a surprise #NewToWho digital prize pack? It has reaction gifs for your new Whovian friend to use on Tumblr, a cheat sheet for your friend to learn about the show, some fun trivia facts (just because they’re fun), recipes for your next viewing party, and a special letter from Doctor Who Tumblr. You can download the prize pack here!
So tell us a story about how you’ve shared the show with others in the past or how you plan to do it now, make a post about it using the hashtag #NewToWho, and we’ll be reblogging some throughout the day. 

You can grab the entire pack here (53MB zip file.)
You can grab the entire pack as individual files by clicking the links below. 
(We tried to keep the images at sizes that would suit most people’s computers, so make sure you’re viewing the images full sized before printing. If you want any of these bigger pop them into your fave photo editor and blow ‘em up!)
Enjoy!

"Doctor Who belongs to all of us. Everyone made Doctor Who." —Peter Capaldi

We’ve seen Whovians express themselves through art, design, cosplay, and song; talk about their favorite Doctors, companions, and monsters; list the merits of the minisodes and argue the accuracy of the audios. We’ve melted into puddles of cosmic joy as we watched Whovians befriend each other both online and off, and we’ve enjoyed every second of admiring this fantastic fandom for all that it makes, does, and is.

For today’s #NewToWho week post, let’s all talk about what being a Whovian means to us. Whatever ideas and images the word “Whovian” brings to mind, whether it’s your connection to the community, the appreciation for each other’s creativity, the obsession with continuity, anything at all, we want to hear it. Make a post in whatever format you’d like (photo, text post, audio, video, anything!) tag it with #NewToWho and we’ll be reblogging posts all day in celebration of the best fandom in all of space and time.

Doctor Who is a show that brings a lot of people together: that’s what fandom is all about and what makes it so great. Sometimes just introducing someone to a show we like can greatly impact and shape our relationships to each other in really positive ways. Sharing a love for the things that are important to us strengthens our bonds with each other, and brings us closer together. 

For today’s #NewToWho post, let’s talk about who got us into Doctor Who and how they convinced us to start watching. Did a close friend tell you about it who you now watch the show with all the time? Maybe a parent or teacher who grew up on Classic Who made you want to see what the man with the blue box was all about? How has sharing Doctor Who with this person changed or shaped your relationship to them? 
Whatever your story is, we’d like you to tell us about it by making a tumblr post sharing it and using the #NewToWho tag. We’ll be reblogging some of your posts all day in recognition of the people who convinced you to join the best fandom this side of the Kasterborous constellation.
