“I’ve been running all my lives, through time and space; every second of every minute of every day for over 900 years. I fought for peace in a universe at war. Now the time has come to face the choices I have made in the name of the Doctor. Our future depends on one single moment of one impossible day, the day I’ve been running from all my life. The day of the Doctor.” CHILLS!

Former Doctor Who hunk Matt Smith is replacing his sonic screwdriver with a butcher knife for the upcoming London stage musical American Psycho, according to the New York Times. “The musical, adapted from the controversial Bret Easton Ellis novel about a mentally unbalanced young professional, will be presented at Almeida Theater from Dec. 3 through Jan. 25. It features a score by Duncan Sheik, the Tony Award-winning composer of Spring Awakening, and a book by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, who has also written for Glee and contributed to the Broadway musical Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark.” DYING.
Beyoncé shows off her new hairdo while out on the town with Liam Hemsworth. What’s that? I’m being told that is NOT, in fact, Beyoncé. It’s her hair inspiration (hairsperation?) Miley Cyrus with boyfriend Liam at the Paranoia premiere at the DGA Theater in Los Angeles. I THOUGHT it was odd that Beyonce would be posing with Liam Hemsworth. Matt Smith leaves the Groucho club in London, looking adorable. His hair seems to be growing back nicely. It just depresses me seeing him now, though. Knowing what limited time we have left with him before the USURPER, the PRETENDER, that UN-DOCTOR takes over. Will I stop watching? Will I give the new guy a chance? I don’t know. I don’t know. I feel like a certain part of MY LIFE is ending. DAMN YOU AND YOUR BURGEONING HOLLYWOOD CAREER, MATT SMITH! Let’s look at this gorgeously composed picture of Hollywood pop tart Courtney Stodden kissing her husband Doug Hutchison outside the Chateau Marmont, to give us a lift. That’s just a perfect photo, isn’t it? And then there’s good old Joan Jett, whose career is inexplicably on an uptick, arriving at the Jimmy Kimmel studios in Hollywood for a concert. Now THAT’s a face! Good to see you again, Joanie! (Photos: Pacific Coast News)
So apparently there’s been a surge of bets on 55-year-old Peter Capaldi (known for playing hot-headed Malcolm Tucker on BBC’s The Thick of It) taking over the role of Doctor Who from Matt Smith at the end of the year. Joe Crilly, a spokesperson for the William Hill online betting agency, said: “Peter Capaldi was not even in our list a few days ago but he has been the subject of a lot of betting interest recently and this gamble would suggest that if he does not have the part already, he is almost certainly on the shortlist.” It is thought that Capaldi’s name began to surface after Doctor Who creator Steven Moffat said he would not rule out casting an older Doctor. He said: “We’ve never not considered an older Doctor. It is completely on all the lists we make- there are absolutely older Doctors.”
So as of now, the odds on favorites are:
Peter Capaldi: 2/1 (YUCK)
Ben Daniels: 4/1 (EVEN YUCKIER)
Rory Kinnear: 6/1 (I SWEAR TO GOD I’LL STOP WATCHING)
Ben Whishaw: 10/1 (NOW BEN I COULD GET BEHIND) (LITERALLY) (HUBBA HUBBA)
David Harewood: 10/1 (HMMM. MIGHT BE INTERESTING.)
I notice that Rupert Grint didn’t make the list, which is sad. I would have liked that. So, now I’m hoping that it’s Ben Whishaw. Or maybe Ben Barnes. I want another cute Doctor.
Ash, a microbiologist and extreme Dr Who fan, created this image of a Dalek by cultivating strands of E. Coli bacteria in a petri dish.”‘Cause I’m not very good at art, but at least I’ve got science!” she wrote. “CONTAMINATE!“ (via Who-lliggan)
Recently shorn Matt Smith is WILDLY ATTRACTIVE at the 72nd Annual Peabody Awards, where Doctor Who was awarded an Institutional Peabody “for evolving with technology and the times like nothing else in the known television universe.” I post this because a) Matt Smith, yum and b) he’s wearing a miniature version of the Vivienne Westwood skeleton necklace THAT I JUST BOUGHT over the weekend. So…. great minds and all. Yay. But seriously, can we TALK about those EARS? I just want to fry them up and EAT THEM! (via Belforts)
In this 26-second teaser, Clara seems to be making… a SOUFFLÉ? (dun dun DUN)… when she gets a message from Madam Vestra, the lesbian lizard woman living in Victorian England with no access to time travel. So right there we have lots of different timey-wimey, wibbly wobbly stuff going on. The name of the episode is “The Name of the Doctor” and the tagline promises “His Secret Revealed.” So already, I’m thinking it’s THE MOST IMPORTANT EPISODE EVER IN THE HISTORY OF DR WHO. We’ll see, won’t we?
