Doctor Who fans rejoice! Following an achingly long 12 month break, Series 10 is due to kick off this weekend and expectations couldn’t be higher! I’ll warn you now, there may be a couple of light spoilers ahead so tread carefully!
The wonderful Peter Capaldi will be returning as the Doctor (in what has been confirmed as his final series) and he will be joined by a brand new companion in the form of Bill Potts played by Pearl Mackie. Also, very excitingly, Matt Lucas (who I’ll always remember from Shooting Stars and Little Britain!) will be returning as Nardole, a character who was last seen in the 2015 Christmas Special.
The first episode is called The Pilot and will show The Doctor meeting Bill while working as a lecturer in a University, he then of course whisks her away to his weird and wonderful world. Show writer Steven Moffat has promised that this episode is a great starting point for anyone who’s not seen the show yet, so there’s no excuse not to get involved!
It also wouldn’t be Doctor Who without a couple of scary moments to get us hiding behind the sofa courtesy of the huge range of villains that the series is well known for. It seems that new sidekick Bill is going to get chucked in at the deep end as the first episode is said to feature the greatest of all enemies, The Daleks!
Confirmed to be returning this series is The Master (played by John Simm) who has a long running history with the Doctor, some might say the ultimate version of a frenemy! Also returning will be Missy (played by Michelle Gomez) who is the female equivalent of The Master, what will happen when these two meet? Only one way to find out!
If all this talk has got you excited for some treats, we have got a great range of Doctor Who Clothing and Doctor Who Merchandise that any fan is sure to love. With a range that includes T-Shirts, mugs, duvets and much more we’ve got all you need to help you snuggle up for series premiere this Saturday!
Big news folks! Yep we care bear-ly (sorry) contain ourselves today as the long awaited new Paddington Bear film will be hitting the big screen today!
Paddington Bear has been with us all of our lives and made his first ever appearance way back in 1958 in his very own children’s book series. Coming to us from deepest darkest parts of Peru, with his old red fisherman hat, battered brown suitcase (complete with a secret compartment), big blue duffle coat and love of marmalade, Paddington has become and international children’s icon and is still huugely loved today by kids and big kids like us.
The story goes, BBC cameraman Michael Bond bought a small toy bear left alone on a shelf in Selfridges store, London, for his wife Brenda. Named Paddington, after the station close to Michael’s home, the bear inspires him to write eight episodes in just over a week which are later published by Williams Collins and quickly became the UK’s Best Children’s Novel! .
Being made into a simply huuuuge range of books, TV episodes, games toys and more, he’s finally hitting the big screen in his first ever feature film!
Voiced by Ben Whishaw (James Bond Skyfall geek Q) and co-staring along with big names like Hugh Bonneville from Downton Abbey, Julie Walters, Jim Broadbent, Peter Capaldi (Dr Who!), Nicole Kidman, and Sally Hawkins from Godzilla! Wowzers!
The story goes, after leaving his native home of Puru and heading to London, Paddington finds himself alone with nowhere to go. He is quickly spotted and befriended by the Brown family who give him a temporary home whilst he searches for the explorer who impressed Aunt Lucy all those years before.
The mischievous by polite bear brings both uproar and joy to the family who are later left to help protect him from sinister, seductive taxidermist who has her eyes firmly set on making him her next project!
