Doctor Who, A British TV Series

Must read

Doctor Who, A British TV Series

Doctor Who

Doctor Who: A quirky and caring Time Lord races through space and time to find answers and fight evil around the cosmos.

The show chronicles the exploits of a Time Lord named “The Doctor,” who possesses the remarkable ability to regenerate, along with his human companions. In the time-travelling police box-shaped TARDIS, the Doctor and his companions traverse space and time, rescuing the universe with kindness, bravery, and wit.

About the Doctor Who Series

Since its debut in 1963, the BBC has aired the British science fiction series Doctor Who. The series, written by Sydney Newman, C. E. Webber, and Donald Wilson, follows the exploits of the Time Lords.

 This humanoid alien race includes a figure known as the Doctor. The Doctor’s time-travelling TARDIS spaceship allows him to travel across space and time. While on the road, the Doctor fights evildoers to save lives and free the downtrodden. Accompanying the Doctor on his trips is not uncommon.

The series has been led by fourteen actors from William Hartnell’s time as Doctor; Ncuti Gatwa will be the fifteenth Doctor as of 2024. Actors come and go throughout the series because of a plot mechanism that involves regeneration into a new incarnation. 

This happens when a Time Lord suffers a deadly injury, and their cells repair, allowing them to be reborn. Although their performances are unique, they all contribute to the same character’s story through the many phases of his or her life.

 Due to the time-travelling narrative, several Doctor incarnations cross paths from time to time. The Thirteenth Doctor, played by Jodie Whittaker, made history in 2017 as the first female actor to play the part.

The show has become a cult classic and integral to British and international popular culture. Many British television professionals can trace their careers back to the show because it impacted them as children.

 The term “Whovians” can describe those who enjoy the show. Based on its total broadcast ratings and DVD and book sales, it has also been dubbed the “most successful” science-fiction series ever.

From 1963 to 1989, the series was on air. The 1996 TV movie Doctor Who served as a backdoor pilot for an effort to restart regular production; however, it was a failure. In 2005, BBC Wales in Cardiff rebooted the series and began producing it in-house.

 Bad Wolf and Cardiff’s BBC Studios Productions have worked together on the show’s production since 2023. Torchwood(2006–2011), The Sarah Jane Adventures(2007–2011), K9(2009–2010), and Class are just a few of the many Doctor Who spin-offs that have appeared in comic books, movies, novels, and audio dramas (2016). In pop culture, it has been referenced and parodied numerous times.

“Doctor Who”: Exploring the “Boom” Easter Eggs

Doctor Who

Showrunner Russell T. Davies has enticed new audiences with the irresistible charm of the Fifteenth Doctor (Ncuti Gatwa) and his vivacious companion Ruby Sunday (Millie Gibson) since Season 14 of Doctor Who.

 However, for lifelong show fans, these new adventures have been filled with Easter eggs that hint at intriguing new possibilities while referencing deep-cut show heritage. 

We have deciphered the hints in “Space Babies” and “The Devil’s Chord,” we have also immersed ourselves in the growing mystery surrounding Susan Twist. Next, we have “Boom,” an episode focused on the war that marks the return of Steven Moffat, the show’s former showrunner, this time as screenwriter.

The Comeback of Susan Twist is Happening.

Since making her television debut in 1980 in an episode of the police drama The Squad, the English actress has frequently appeared on British television. Her recent appearances in four episodes of Doctor Who have sent fan theory enthusiasts into a frenzy.

 Here, she appears as the spokesperson for the AI-driven ambulance that finds fighting zones and provides aid according to its judgment. That, however, can lead to some highly questionable euthanasia practices. “John Francis Vater” (Joe Anderson) departed this world. 

In this in-depth analysis of Susan Twist’s Doctor Who guest spots, we speculate on the meaning behind her odd casting choices. Her character in “Boom” is both the most merciless and the most inhuman thus far. 

“The Skye Boat Song” is Performed.

Doctor Who

Stepping on a landmine is the triggering event of “Boom” for the Fifteenth Doctor. Lucky for him, he has the good sense to freeze in mid-reaction, preventing its aggressive response. He finds solace in singing “The Skye Boat Song.”

  • “Nimble as a bird in flight, my dear boat.
  • Keep going, the sailors yell!
  • The boy destined to be king must be carried.
  • From the ocean to Skye.

“It’s sweet and sad,” Fifteen writes to Ruby about the music. “And the plot revolves around combatants. “Yet it’s mellow, like a lullaby.” 

This Gaelic song, initially performed in Scotland in 1782, recalls the story of Prince Charles Edward Stuart, who came close to being captured by the Germans after losing the Battle of Culloden in 1746. The tragic tale of troops at war in “Boom” may find a connection to this detail.

The song has a notable history on Doctor Who; in 1968, Patrick Troughton’s character, the Second Doctor, recorded it on a recorder in an episode called “The Web of Fear.” Hear this:

The President’s Wife and The Moon are Both Mentioned.

The Doctor tries reciting a poem as a second strategy after “The Skye Boat Song” does not alleviate his anxiety: 

  • “I made my way to the shore.
  • And still, she remained, 
  • Tall and shadowy, on the forest’s edge.
  • The sky is far too expansive. “I’m terrified,” I sobbed. 
  • ‘Young man, you don’t realise there’s more to life,’ she responded.
  • “The president’s wife and the moon, though?”

We confess that we have no idea where this poem came from.

Missy’s comment about the Doctor (Michelle Gomez) does come to mind. Clara, played by Jenna Coleman, inquires Missy, the intriguing enemy of the Doctor, about the length of time they had known each other in “The Magician’s Apprentice” (Season 9, Episode 1).

 “Since always,” Missy says in response. When he was a tiny girl, he stole the moon and the president’s wife. That was during the Cloister Wars. Which one was false? 

Afterwards, in “Hell Bent,” the Doctor and Clara bring up moons and presidential wifey once more. Twelve persuades a group of soldiers to abandon their weapons and fight alongside him against the evil President Rassilon. 

While retelling the story to Clara, he corrects Missy’s circulating rumours. The Shobogans spread that falsehood. The daughter of the president was involved. The moon wasn’t stolen from me; it was gone. 

Somebody in the Gallifrey subreddit has speculated that this phrase implies Susan, the First Doctor’s granddaughter, is the daughter of the president—a person whom Fifteen alludes to in “The Devil’s Chord.” Is it stupidity or a hint?

Doctor Who

The Villengard V

Villengard, the “biggest weapons manufacturer in recorded history,” makes the landmine on which the Doctor stands. This industry has supplied every side of the war for the last two hundred years. His subsequent comment reads, “War is business, and business is booming.”

This is related to the Doctor Who Canon, where the planet Villengard is associated with the production of weaponry. In “The Empty Child/The Doctor Dances,” a two-part episode, and in “Twice Upon a Time,” when the First Doctor (David Bradley) and the Twelfth Doctor (Peter Capaldi) discover it in ruins, Villengard has been mentioned before by screenwriter Moffatt. 

Fifteen tells Ruby, “I had to deactivate one of these [Villengard land mines] once.” This information is relevant to the Villengard landmine in question. At a gymkhana for lesbians. In the water. Just for fun. Except I wasn’t standing on it, and it wasn’t live. Also, I came up on the losing end of that wager. I apologise. This story is at the wrong time!

“Genesis of the Daleks” Was a Source of Inspiration for Steven Moffat’s “Boom.”

The writer of “Boom” made the following statement while speaking with Doctor Who.tv: “I had this idea of the landmine, which is a short sequence in ‘Genesis of the Daleks’ that I happened to love when I was a kid.”

One scene from the 1975 episode “Genesis of the Daleks” showed Tom Baker’s Fourth Doctor stepping on a landmine and pausing before it detonated. In a nail-biting scene, his partner, medical officer Harry Sullivan (Ian Marten), rescues him by stabilizing the gadget with rocks. 

“I thought, ‘What if you did it for a whole episode?'” Keep going, Moffat. “The Doctor is precariously balanced; one misstep may spell disaster. It would severely limit his abilities; he would be unable to move, trick others, or run about. “There must be something I’m missing,” I thought.

“Dad to Dad.”

Doctor Who

Even though Vater has passed away, his daughter Splice insists he is still very much alive. In a spiritual sense, she says. On the other hand, the Doctor had a conversation with Vater’s artificial intelligence fragment that the Villengard AI algorithm ate up in the episode. 

To save the day and avoid becoming an inadvertent bomb that may destroy the entire planet, the Doctor begs Vater to hack the AI ambulance (Susan Twist) and deactivate the landmine.

Rowan Atkinson, Mr Bean Actor, is Held Responsible For The Reduced Demand for Electric Vehicles.

Fifteen Implores, “Dad to Dad.” Can You Tell Me Who The Doctor’s Offspring Are? 

According to Canon, the First Doctor had thirteen offspring. On the other hand, David Tennant’s portrayal of the Tenth Doctor revealed that the Doctor’s children perished during the Last Great Time War. 

However, in an episode from the Tennant period called “The Doctor’s Daughter,” the Doctor unknowingly had a pronation procedure that resulted in the birth of a daughter named Jenny, who was twenty-something years old, blonde and full of life and who was destined to serve in the military, a profession that the Doctor despised.

 They may have been different, but this father-daughter team rescued the day. She proceeded to embark on her unexplored travels after that. 

For fun, the actress who played Jenny, Georgia Moffett, is Peter Davison’s daughter, the Fifth Doctor. David Tennant, who played her father on Doctor Who, became her husband. 

Fear Grips the Anglican Marines in “Boom.” 

For most of the episode, Doctor Who makes fun of the Anglican Marines because he doesn’t like violence or weapons. In particular, he scolds the troops for blaming their religion and igniting a conflict through smoke and shadows.

 “Faith,” he cries out, “is the magic word that keeps you from ever having to think for yourself.”

He concludes with sardonic “thoughts and prayers,” implying they must rescue themselves to drive the point home. Their prayers will be in vain, yet a parent serious about keeping their child safe will. 

Doctor Who

“Fish Fingers and Custard is My Favourite.” 

This strange munchie is a nod to Matt Smith’s Eleventh Doctor. The Doctor, who had recently had his mouth regenerated, desperately searched for a meal that he would savour when he encountered young Amy Pond (Caitlin Blackwood).

 Fry fish fingers with sweet custard were the Doctor’s favourite snack after many unsuccessful experiments with yoghurt, bacon, and baked beans. 

“Boom” drops a subtle bombshell: the Doctor still enjoys the comedic food pairing. On the other hand, the child Splice, who is orphaned due to a holy conflict, could remind him of his long-lost friend Amy. 

The Snow From Ruby is Back. 

The snow might hint that Christmas foundling Ruby Sunday is unique. The Ruby Road church was evacuated as it fell on the night of her birth. Both in “Boom” and while she was in the TARDIS, it collapsed; in the latter case, it seemed to have caused her serious injury. (This level of precipitation is unprecedented on Earth.)

What this indicates is still unclear to us. Once Ruby is no longer in danger and calm has returned, the doctor makes an interesting comment regarding snow… and death.

“Dying defines us,” he informs Ruby. “Snow isn’t snow until it falls.” Does this spell the end for Ruby? Worst case scenario: her fall marks the beginning, not the end. 

Once Again, The Doctor Dismantles the Fourth Wall. 

You could assume that the Doctor is observing Mundy and Splice, a newly formed family, as they gaze into the planet’s distance when he says, “We all melt away in the end,” and delivers the snow line. However, the Doctor stares directly into the camera, addressing the TV audience. At the same time, Ruby appears to be staring into the distance. 

To which he adds, “But something stays,” and then he waves goodbye to Vater’s hologram. “Maybe the best part.” 

As Maestro did in “The Devil’s Chord,” the Doctor also did throughout the piece. But he keeps chatting to us with some poetry until we figure out what all this meta stuff means…

“A Sad Little Man Once ToldMme: What Survives of Us is Love.” 

Before the TARDIS leaves, a single snowflake flurries, marking the show’s end. Additionally, it serves as the last phrase of the 1954 publication of “An Arundel Tomb” by the English poet Philip Larkin. 

Legend has it that Chichester Cathedral is home to a memorial featuring a sleeping knight and a sleeping maiden, their delicate hands intertwined in a loving embrace. Their passion for these historical personalities continues today, even if they are no longer among us physically. 

Based on his comment, the Doctor has hung out with Larkin and thinks love transcends death. What does this portend for the doctor’s granddaughter and missing children? 

Doctor Who will be available on Disney+ on Friday at 7:00 p.m. ET and on BBC iPlayer in the UK at midnight on May 11 concurrently.
