It’s only when I hit the ground
It causes all the grief”

The Doctor will come face-to-face with some old enemies…
We can confirm that the Cybermen will be menacing the universe once again when Doctor Who returns for a run of eight epic episodes in spring, 2013.The iconic enemies will feature in an adventure directed by Stephen Woolfenden and written by the acclaimed Neil Gaiman whose previous episode was the Hugo Award-winning, The Doctor’s Wife.
Starring Matt Smith as the Doctor and Jenna-Louise Coleman as the new companion, the episode co-stars Warwick Davis (Life’s Too Short and Harry Potter), Tamzin Outhwaite (EastEnders and Hotel Babylon) and Jason Watkins (Being Human and Lark Rise to Candleford) as a band of misfits on a mysterious planet…
Steven Moffat, Lead Writer and Executive Producer, told us, ‘Cybermen were always the monsters that scared me the most! Not just because they were an awesome military force, but because sometimes they could be sleek and silver and right behind you without you even knowing. ’ He added, ‘And with one of the all-time classic monsters returning, and a script from one of our finest novelists, it’s no surprise we have attracted such stellar names as Tamzin, Jason and Warwick.’

Harry Potter and The Prisoner of Azkaban x Doctor Who Series 4: Midnight
Is that a dalek with a lightning shaped scar on its forehead?
It’s the Dalek Who Lived.
plot twist: harry potter was a dalek the whole time
I honestly feel like I had one of the best “coming to Doctor Who” experiences ever. Doctor Who was always something I had heard about from a lot of people. I knew it was a television show, I knew it had been on forever, I knew it was British and witty and science fiction. But I had never actually seen a show. It was one of the those things that people assured me I would love, and I assured them I would get around to watching, but never did.
Then, in the fall of 2010, I took a course at university about Harry Potter. It was fantastic and we talked about all sorts of interesting issues. One such issue was intertextuality, and what allusions and references to texts in other texts might mean. My professor told us that, in order to explore this concept, we would be watching an episode of Doctor Who. As you might have guessed, we watched “The Shakespeare Code,” which contains multiple references to Harry Potter. Now, not only am I a huge fan of both Harry Potter and well-written dialogue, I am also an English Education major and a big fan of The Bard. Throughout the episode, I was in awe. I loved every bit of it - the wit, the loveably hokey aliens, the portrayal of Shakespeare, the Doctor’s nerdery. Suddenly, I found myself floored by this show that I had put off for so long. “Why didn’t I ever listen to my friends, and watch this sooner??” I kept thinking.
That night, I went back to my dorm and watched the first season. It wasn’t long before I not only caught up, but got my best friend hooked on it too. I also recently got my boyfriend into it and now all three of us are excited to sit down together and watch the premiere of season 7. I love Doctor Who and it’s so weird to think that I’ve only been part of this fandom for two years, but, then again, I suppose that when you run with the Doctor it feels like forever, no matter the time.
