Whovians can now rejoice because the Doctor and his companion Clara Oswald will be coming to a telly near you this August. For what seemed like a century, or a boring, suburaban day for the Doctor, the show has been on hiatus. The last time we saw our favorite Time Lord, he had regenrated into his new persona, the Twelfth Doctor (Peter Capaldi) and was complaining about the color of his kidneys; our dear Clara was too shell-shocked to speak.

Since the official season finale, there have been no new episodes of the series. There were two specials though, the 50th anniversay which brought us three Doctors and Bad Wolf as well as the annual Christmas special where this year, the Sonic Screwdriver was officially handed down from Eleventh Doctor, Matt Smith to Capaldi.

After five months, the BBC and BBC America have been nice enough to give fans a 15-second teaser, which is greatly appreciated because behind-the-scene photos just are not cutting it anymore. Check out the teaser.

Doctor Who is slated to return in August, but when exactly, only he (and the BBC) will know.

‘Orphan Black’ Animated Teaser Debuts

ob

BBC America’s surprise hit, Orphan Black made quite a splash this year during its debut season and even gave us one of the most underrated actresses of the year, Tatiana Maslany.

With the year coming to a close, fans of the series were gifted with an animated teaser for the second season of the highly-anticipated second season. The official second trailer, according to officials, will air during the Doctor Who Christmas Special which will air on December 25 starting at 9 P.M. on BBC America.

The spot features Maslany doing a voiceover in the accent of all the characters that she portrays in the series (come on, when is she getting an award for this?!). Her characters’ face fade into one another through different colored test tubes where “Sarah’s” voice reveals that she is “part of a sisterhood like no other,” but even though they are, they are still “one of a kind.”

Check out the teaser below and don’t forget to check in during the commercial breaks of the Doctor Who special (if Doctor Who isn’t your cup of tea) to see the second trailer.

Orphan Black returns to BBC America on April 19 and welcome to the #cloneclub.

‘Doctor Who’ Anniversary Tribute Trailer Surfaces

Late last night , North American time, the BBC announced that a trailer for the 50th anniversary of their hit show Doctor Who would premiere at eight something their time.

The new trailer that was released today on the world is not the same one that fans who attended Comic-Con in San Diego this past Summer got to watch. That trailer, was apparently specially made for that event and to the request of the crew, that trailer has yet to be released onto the internet.

Current show runner, writer and major troll, Steven Moffat answered fans’ questions about the current trailer revealing that none of the footage from the actual special would not be making an appearance in the teaser; much to the displeasure of Whovians. Turns out, it was more of a tribute to all the re-generations throughout the 50 years.

The teaser finally made its debut and like Moffat said, not a single piece of footage from the special made it onto the one minute clip, instead we have a voice over from current Doctor, Matt Smith and images of past Doctors including William Hartnell’s First Doctor and Tom Baker’s Fourth Doctor with his famous jelly babies and scarf. Also appearing are companions such as the late Elisabeth Sladen’s Sarah Jane Smith (and their robotic dog, K-9) and current companion, Jenna Coleman’s Clara Oswald.

Check out the clip below and don’t forget, the Doctor Who 50th Anniversary special, “The Day of the Doctor,” will premiere on November 23, 2013 simultaneously in 75 different countries, so get your Sonic Screwdrivers and Jelly Babies ready to defeat the Daleks.
