Forgive a brief indulgence, please, as the Doctor Who Companion has been featured on technology site, MakeUseOf – in an article highlighting the best Doctor Who websites! We are, of course, in good company, including Rubbertoe Replicas, Doctor Who News, and the Big Finish podcast.
MakeUseOf was founded in 2007, and covers all aspects of tech; it takes its name from its core purpose: to help readers make use of consumer technology. Its Internet section, for instance, advises users about the best online content; Social Media looks at Facebook, Snapchat, Twitter, Instagram, and the ilk; and the Android and iPhone sections cater for handheld devices.
Regular DWC readers might recognise the author of “The 22 Best Doctor Who Sites for News, Gifts, and More” – it’s Christian Cawley, founder of the DWC’s predecessor, Kasterborous, and who still writes for us in his downtime.
Christian’s a Deputy Editor at MakeUseOf, helming sections like Security, Technology Explained, and Linux.
I also work for MakeUseOf as a Senior Writer. If you’d like to support the team behind the DWC, checking out MUO certainly helps!
So what other Doctor Who content can you find on MUO? Here’s a brief selection by Christian and myself…
I look at 10 of the best podcasts, including the PodKast With A K, Verity, and Two Minute Time Lord.
Grab your pitchforks!
Christian picks an array of serials, from 1963 to 2015. Good to see Hide, Spearhead from Space, and Survival in there, but honestly, what sort of monster misses out Robots of Death and The Pandorica Opens/ The Big Bang?
14 accounts you should follow on Twitter if you’re a lover of Peter Capaldi’s first year in the TARDIS.
Another article I wrote some years ago now.
I look at TARDIS Data Core alongside other niche Wikipedia libraries.
Christian wrote this one back in 2013, when we were anticipating The Day of the Doctor; nonetheless, it’s still well worth checking out.
Finally, here’s my era-by-era look at the show echoing our technological concerns. Includes Cybermen, of course, as well as the Will Operating Thought ANalogue (WOTAN to you and I); Cyberpunk; and the Millennium Bug.
That’s it for now, but we’re sure moreDoctor Who content will feature on MUO soon.
And of course, we want to thank Christian for including the DWC in his list!
