Tom Baker Enters Star Wars Universe… Is Vague On Specifics

Tom Baker Enters Star Wars Universe… Is Vague On Specifics
Former Doctor Who Tom Baker has announced that he’s voicing a Star Wars character but has given no details about what brand of Star Wars we talking about: the sequel movies, a game or Star Wars Rebels, the animated TV series (which would be our bet based on nothing much).

A Female Doctor? Steven Moffat and Peter Capaldi Don’t See Why Not

A Female Doctor? Steven Moffat and Peter Capaldi Don’t See Why Not
It’s a long time now since Whovians first began to discuss the possibility of the Doctor one day regenerating into a member of the opposite sex, with the idea first taking root in popular consciousness after Fourth Doctor Tom Baker made the suggestion back in 1980.

Initially born out of a joke made by fifth Doctor Peter Davison that if he wasn’t asked to be part of the 50th anniversary special he would “jolly well make [his] own”, The Five(ish) Doctors Reboot is probably one of the best things to ever happen to Doctor Who. Packed full of quotes, references, in-jokes and music from various eras of the show, and featuring perfectly-timed comic performances from Peter Davison, Colin Baker and Sylvester...

Manchester MCM Expo Round-Up

Manchester MCM Expo Round-Up
For the first time ever, the MCM group ventured further north up the country, past Birmingham and leaving London in the distance behind them. The idea of going to Manchester to hold an Expo event was always a risk, with no idea as to what the attendance numbers would be like and if it would be successful. Needless to say, those worries are in the past. Here at MCM Buzz we were speechless by the amount of people in attendance. The aisles were packed...
