Inside Doctor Who's 50th Anniversary Special

Dr. Who

Can you keep a secret? Probably not as well as Doctor Who executive producer Steven Moffat's two sons, Joshua, 13, and Louis, 11. These days, nearly every television producer, director, writer, actor and caterer is apprehensive about revealing details and plot points from unaired episodes of their shows. But Moffat is the master. He even gave one of the series' characters the catchphrase "No spoilers." He purposely misleads the press. "I lied my arse off," Moffat told 6,500 attendees at this year's San Diego Comic-Con regarding the content of an upcoming episode. He also runs a tight spaceship: Nondisclosure agreements are as ubiquitous as silver alien masks on the British science-fiction show's set.

Joshua, however, is the first to... read more

The Weekend Playlist: Doctor Who and Other Finales, Affleck Joins SNL "5-Timer" Club

Matt Smith

Another May weekend, another deluge of season finales — though none are likely to blow the mind with as much daring, panache and imaginative fervor as BBC America's gloriously inventive Doctor Who (Saturday, 8/7c), which signs off until next time-travel with one of its trippiest yet emotionally powerful episodes to date. Steven Moffat's typically clever script, brimming with colorful incident and characters grandly heroic or villainous, finds a nifty way to salute the 50-year history of Doctors as we learn more about the impossibly irrepressible companion Clara (the smashing Jenna-Louise Coleman), first seen in a cosmic haze — "I don't know where I am ... Sometimes I think I'm everywhere at once" — with only one constant to guide her: "I have to save the Doctor." That same impulse prompts lizard lady Vastra, her wife Jenny and the stalwart Strax to summon Clara to a psychic conference call, interrupted by the menacing "Whisper Men" (reminiscent of the ghoulish Gentlemen from Buffy's classic "Hush" episode).

Doctor Who's Jenna-Louise Coleman: The TARDIS Pulls an Inception

Matt Smith

"It's bigger on the inside."

On Saturday's Doctor Who (8/7c, BBC America), viewers will get to see just how accurate that statement is when the Doctor (Matt Smith) travels to the center of the TARDIS to find his companion Clara (Jenna-Louise Coleman), who is lost inside the time-traveling spacecraft. Perhaps her predicament is the result of that combative relationship she has with the TARDIS?
