Doctor Who News Shocked Doctor

Doctor Who Knows Best in USA Magazines!

Doctor Who has made the “Best” lists of two of the USA’s most popular magazines!

The newest Entertainment Weekly picks the Best (and Worst) of 2013 and features a small TARDIS in the top right corner of the cover. The collaged cover places Brad Pitt and Benedict Cumberbatch near the TARDIS, while tabloid sensation Miley Cyrus dangles precariously above it on her wrecking ball. Hmm.

The magazine also picks The Time of the Doctor as #2 on their Must List (The Top 10 Things We Love This Week) and say:

Even casual Whovians won’t want to miss this one: Matt Smith passes the TARDIS to regenerated Time Lord Peter Capaldi in the feverishly anticipated special.

And TV Guide–celebrating their 60th anniversary as everyone’s favorite television magazine–picks their 60 greatest television shows of all time. Although Doctor Who isn’t in the top 60 (Monty Python’s Flying Circus is the only non-US entry at #58), there is a picture of Matt Smith at the end of the article with this caption:

Readers’ Choice: Doctor Who. Your Facebook votes have been tallied and, though he didn’t make our list, it’s the Time Lord by a wide margin!

Later in the magazine, there is also a sizable photo of Matt Smith brandishing his sonic screwdriver and an article about The Time of the Doctor. The small article discusses the plot of this year’s Christmas special and tries to figure out the regeneration question.

So there you have it: Doctor Who is the best of 2013!

    The Doctor sleeps, to rise no more
    His resting place is Trenzalore…

    The Doctor may not be the only one regenerating in the Christmas episode; The Time Of The Doctor.

    There’s a youtube clip going around, that’s had over 14,000 views so far, of the apparent next ‘regeneration’ of The Master
    who will be facing off against Capaldi in the forthcoming eighth series.

    According to several tweets by tweeter ‘@jamesstoker1963′ The Master maybe returning for the Christmas episode and beyond.
    He’s tweeted the youtube audition clip with these details:

    “I got this apparent audition clip from a youtube user account IzzyAlive (which now seems to have been deleted) who claimed: “A friend of mine in an actors co-operative agency got sent this clip with 4 others in an email that they’d been ‘CC’D into when casting another show I can’t mention.
    The other 3 clips were relevant to the show they were casting but this one was marked:

    ‘The Master DW2014′ (Moff select final review clip).

    I don’t know who the actor is but maybe they’re going with an ‘unknown’ to play The Master after casting a ‘known’ actor in Peter Capaldi to play the 12th Doctor? I guess we’ll find out soon enough”

    You can see the clip at:
