Cinema release confirmed for first episode of ‘Doctor Who’ Season 10 3

WibbilyWobblyTimeyWimey.com Cinema release confirmed for first episode of ‘Doctor Who’ Season 10

It has been officially announced by Fantom Events that the opening episode of the new season of Doctor Who will receive a release in cinemas next month.

12 new episodes have been filming in Cardiff since June 2016, with Pearl Mackie and Matt Lucas joining Capaldi as the Doctor’s latest companions, Bill Potts and Nardole.

Doctor Who Season 10’s opener premieres on TV on Saturday 15 April and it will then be shown in US cinemas on Monday 17 April and Wednesday 19 April.

Tickets go on sale on Friday 10 March.

The run time is listed as 1 hour and 40 minutes. This is likely to also include exclusive bonus content, as with previous Doctor Who and Sherlock cinema releases, but based on this total run time it seems we can assume that this is a feature-length episode and not just a regular 45-minute story.

Peter Capaldi to leave Doctor Who - New Who coming!

Doctor Who" star Peter Capaldi has announced he'll step down from the role at the end of the year.

Capaldi has starred in the long-running sci-fi series as the titular Twelth Doctor since 2013, following the departure of Matt Smith.

    "One of the greatest privileges of being Doctor Who is to see the world at its best. From our brilliant crew and creative team working for the best broadcaster on the planet, to the viewers and fans whose endless creativity, generosity and inclusiveness points to a brighter future ahead," Capaldi said in a statement. "I can't thank everyone enough. It's been cosmic."

    Capaldi will conclude his time as the Doctor with the 2017 Christmas special.

    The actor's departure will correspond with the exit of executive producer Steven Moffat, who previously announced his intention to leave his post.

    "For years before I ever imagined being involved in 'Doctor Who,' or had ever met the man, I wanted to work with Peter Capaldi. I could not have imagined that one day we'd be standing on the TARDIS together," Moffat said in a statement. "Like Peter, I'm facing up to leaving the best job I'll ever have, but knowing I do so in the company of the best, and kindest and cleverest of men, makes the saddest of endings a little sweeter."

    Moffat added that Capaldi's "greatest adventures are yet to come" on the show.

    "Monsters of the universe, be on your guard -- Capaldi's not done with you yet," Moffat said.

    Capaldi's departure will leave one of British television's most iconic roles vacant.

    Season 10 of "Doctor Who" begins April 15.

    Sir John Hurt - one of the defining actors of his generation - has reportedly died. He was 77.

    The Doctor Who and Alien star passed away on Friday (January 27) after battling pancreatic cancer in the last few years of his life, according to The Mirror. He'd celebrated his birthday on January 22.

    A near-ubiquitous presence on TV, film and the stage across six decades, Sir John earned four BAFTAs, a Golden Globe and was nominated twice for an Academy Award.

    Having cut his teeth in the early years of BBC drama, Sir John had his star turn on the big screen as the Lord Chancellor Richard Rich in the beloved 1966 period drama A Man for All Seasons.

    His transformative portrayal of influential LGBTQ writer Quentin Crisp in ITV's The Naked Civil Servant remains a staple of '70s TV drama at its finest, as does Hurt's turn as the insane emperor Caligula in I, Claudius.

    Gomez previously said that she would be up for popping up in Doctor Who spin-off Class.

    She was abandoned on Skaro, where she came upon a room of angry Daleks.

    After 32 years a someone has discovered a secret (and sweary) message in Doctor Who 0

    Redditor wonkey_monkey has discovered an extraordinary thing in the 80s era episode of Doctor Who, The Twin Dilemma.
    He’s decoded this secret message:

    The full message?

    Yes it says “MON NOM BOG OFF YOU TWIT ASS FACE DR WHO RULES OK SO DOES DAVES PROGRA”
    Yep, the BBC broadcast, “BOG OFF YOU TWIT ASS FACE”
    Oops.
    Read wonkey_monkey‘s full post here:
    wonkey_monkey over on Reddit writes, “There’s a secret message hidden in The Twin Dilemma”
    There is a secret message hidden in plain sight in Colin Baker’s first episode, *The Twin Dilemma*.
    There’s a scene near the start of part 1 where the two weirdo twins are playing what is apparently some complicated mathematical game. In actual fact, it’s some simple graphics knocked up – as were many of the graphics of that time – on a BBC Micro computer.
    It uses “mode 7,” otherwise known as Teletext mode, which will be familiar to anyone who grew up with British telly in the 80s and 90s. Teletext was a digital text service broadcast in the hidden lines of analogue TV pictures, and allowed semi-interactive access to news, sport, TV listings, on-screen subtitles and such (and even, for those sufficiently equipped, computer program downloads).
    Anyway, the BBC Micro was specifically designed to include this mode, and it allowed simple blocky graphics by typing in a certain control code followed by certain ASCII characters. A 2×3 block would appear instead of the ASCII character.
    That’s what was used to generate the graphics in *The Twin Dilemma*. Many, *many* years ago, I decided to have a go at decoding the block graphics back to ASCII characters, and was astonished to find it wasn’t just random text. There was a hidden message!
    I present to you below the two most interesting lines, decoded into ASCII:

    What really blew my mind at the time was that, as my name is David and I had written a computer program to decode the message (either on my BBC Micro or an Acorn A3000, I can’t remember which), for a brief moment my brain toyed with the idea that the message was for *me*.
    Until I remembered that the the video effects guy on *Doctor Who* was Dave Chapman.
    So there you go. Hidden for 32 years (well, less than that, it’s been at least 20 years since I first uncovered it) but finally revealed.
    TL:DR; *The Twin Dilemma* has a slightly rude message from the video effects guy hidden in some on-screen graphics.
