“It all started out as a mild curiosity in the junkyard, and now it’s turned out to be quite a great spirit of adventure.”
Welcome to the Doctor Who Companion!
You can call us DWC, and we’ll be here with you throughout all time and space.
We’re just a group of people who really love Doctor Who, and know it inside and out. In fact, we’ve been writing about it for years already over at Kasterborous, covering daily news, producing thought-provoking features and opinion pieces, and reviewing comics, books, Big Finish, and all manner of other merchandise. We aim to continue this ethos, giving you a new place to indulge in your passion.
Why set up now? It’s a fair question. The show feels somewhat turbulent, even if its future is secure. Steven Moffat is leaving, to be replaced by Chris Chibnall. We don’t know if a regeneration will happen anytime soon either.
The reason, of course, is that the show feels turbulent right now, and that’s the perfect time to mull over its past, question its present, and look to the future. The TV show might not be on Saturday nights for a little while, but the Doctor Who universe is so expansive, there’s constantly something going on.
Big Finish continues to plough on with their Classic Who releases, but have also acquired the license to NuWho. There seems to be an extra push this year from BBC Books. And Titan Comics are going from strength to strength. We have the Doctor Who Magazine, Doctor Who Adventures, and Doctor Who: The Complete History. There are new lines from Lovarzi, Robert Harrop, and Character Options. The Lethbridge-Stewart novels remain enormous fun, we love the Doctor Who Experience, and international conventions boast impressive guest lists including Doctors, companions, monsters, and behind-the-scenes crew.
Simply put, it’s an exciting time to be a Whovian. But then, that’s always been the case.
We’ve a number of great reviews, features, and interviews lined up for you, as well as your day-to-day news… Not just yet, however.
Stick with us. We launch very soon.
Watch us run.
