Now, the Great Detective....that is a series which MUST be made

Wait, isn't that Batman?

Batman ?

Batman is "The World's Greatest Detective", sillies.

Also, I dunno if y'all are reading the Doctor Who/Star Trek Next Generation crossover comic series, but it is faaantastic.

World's greatest detective my arse - everyone knows Sherlock Holmes is the WGD. And he doesn't have to dress up like a gimp to do his work

I did love that Sontaran minion, but dont believe he'd actually be seen as that outlandish in many parts of London.

Whoa whoa whoa, Sherlock Holmes is, you know, GOOD and all, but compared to Batman? Bitch please...

Do you have a link (or a title) for that crossover comic?

It's an actual physical comic book series written by IDW Publishing, called Assimilation2. There are to be eight issues, but not all of them are out yet. It involves the Eleventh Doctor, Amy, and Rory showing up on the Enterprise-D and finding out about an alliance between the Borg and the Cybermen. The Memory Alpha link is here, and for now is surprisingly spoiler-free (most of the other wiki entries on it elsewhere have full plot summaries up to this point).

Keep in mind that in their own respective timelines this will be both Pre-Angels in Manhattan and Pre-Generations (and by extension Pre-First Contact), although with the Doctor involved there's always the chance of timey-wimeyness.

Seems a shame to not call it "Assimelete."

You can also get it on Comixology, which is where I've been reading it:

Well, Sherlock Holmes is driven by intellectual desire. Batman is driven by 'MY PARENTS ARE DEAAAAAAD!"

That book is definitely my Guilty Pleasure Of The Year award winner. I read 6 and 7 yesterday.

Matt Smith and Steven Moffat talk about the Christmas special.

Starring Matt Smith as the Doctor and introducing Jenna-Louise Coleman as Clara, his new companion, this year’s Christmas Special is called The Snowmen and follows their adventures as they battle the villainous Doctor Simeon (Richard E Grant) and his army of sinister snowmen.

Not necessarily re: Doctor Who, but Neil Gaiman tweets:

On the good side I was just sent a cast list with James McAvoy, Ben. Cumberbatch, Christopher Lee, Anthony Head and Bernard Cribbins on it.

Anthony Head - wonder if that's a return for the Krillitanes ?

Neil Gaiman + Wilf... this has potential.

EW interviews Jenna-Louise Coleman

Back in March, executive producer Steven Moffat announced that the Doctor’s new assistant (or “companion”) would be played by Jenna-Louise Coleman and that the British actress was set to make her debut in this year’s special Christmas episode, which BBC America is screening on Dec. 25 at 9 p.m. So Who fans were taken by surprise when, this September, Coleman appeared in “Asylum of the Daleks,” the first episode of the current season of Doctor Who, which also starred the Time Lord’s now (dearly) departed companions Amy (Karen Gillan) and Rory (Arthur Darvill).

More bewildering still, Coleman didn’t seem to be playing the role of the Doctor’s new companion — whose name we now know to be Clara — but rather a character named Oswin Oswald who had been converted into one of the dreaded Daleks and who seemingly died at the end of the show.

In the new issue of ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY, Coleman talks, exclusively, about keeping her role in “Asylum of the Daleks” a secret and when fans might get some answers with regards to the Oswin/Clara conundrum. Below, the actress, whose previous credits include the Julian Fellowes-penned Titanic miniseries, ruminates further on these subjects — as well as discussing the forthcoming Doctor Who Christmas show and revealing where Karen Gillan recommends you should eat next time you’re in, uh, Cardiff.

Karen Gillan was on The Late Late Show last night. I always forget how tall she is.

Anyways, since there are folks still watching older episodes, spoiler warning, they show a clip from the end of "The Angels Take Manhattan".

Thanks for that, she always cracks me up when she is on with Craig. Plus she is beautiful, which is nice...

My god she's gorgeous. And wow, they changed the set since last I watched Craig Ferguson.

And wow, her singing Gaelic is REALLY hot.

Woah. For some reason I jumped out of my chair but I don't remember seeing anything.

I've been tipping my screen back for an hour, is something supposed to happen? I'll try again...

I was expecting a Silence gif, but it reads as a jpeg, so I'm confused...

I didn't create the thing; I found it as a jpg.

Serious, guys, I've been at it for two hours straight, what's it supposed to do?

It doesn't do anything, I don't understand what it is supposed to mean or have in connection with Doctor Who.

It's morning already?! How did I get these marks all over my arms?
