In this week’s episode of Doctor Who, we landed in the ‘mythical’ tale of Robin Hood. Taken at the request of Clara, who has loved the tale of Robin Hood since she was a child, the Doctor remains adamant that he is not real, even after meeting him in 1160 (or thereabouts).

Last week’s episode received mixed reviews amongst fans and critics alike, with Peter Capaldi putting on a good show as a Doctor with both humour and determination, alongside a hint of darkness. This week we see the Doctor get as close to a Dalek as you can possibly get: Actually inside it.

He’s here! He’s finally here! After a year of anticipation, excitement and extreme curiosity, Peter Capaldi’s first steps as the 12th Doctor are finally here… and boy, was he something different! Dazed, confused and coughed up by a dinosaur, Deep Breath saw the 12th Doctor reunited with the Paternoster Gang in Victorian London. Unsure of his new persona, he’s flung, headlong, into a mysterious case involving spontaneous human combustion and a creepy man with half a face. Darker, more sinister but still as fun as ever, this was Doctor Who as it should be!
With not long to go before the Twelfth Doctor makes his first proper appearance (literally minutes), it's time to announce the winner of our Doctor Who Companion Faceoff. Although some other rounds were very hard-fought, in a few cases being decided by a single vote, it's safe to say that the eventual winner was a bit of a landslide. Here on I'm With Geek, our ultimate Doctor Who companion is...

It’s really hard to come into a role as a character much beloved by fans everywhere. It’s safe to say that fans of Doctor Who have been scrutinizing casting choices ever since the dawn of time. But fear not, because one favourite has scarily bounded to our screens with his scrutinising eyebrows and now takes the guise of the Doctor. That’s right, we are merely minutes away from seeing Peter Capaldi at the helm of the TARDIS and we are terribly excited, especially learning that it is going to take a darker tone, there will be no flirting and it’s bleeding Peter Capaldi! But where did this elusive man come from?
Honourable Mention: Peter Capaldi is on the verge of breaking Hollywood and no doubt will after his stint in the series, but he has played some incredible side characters in recent times. But for added effect, check out his Oscar-winning short as he directs and writes Franz Kafka’s It’s A Wonderful Life. It's genius.

Fun, enigmatic, an ancient man trapped in a young body, the 11th Doctor was, for me, the epitome of what the Doctor should be. The perfect balance of charm and humanity whilst remaining undeniably alien, Matt Smith’s performance as our favourite Timelord was exciting, haunting and, most of all, amazing! Stepping into the fold over arguably the most popular Doctor ever, it’s surprising to think, looking back, that so many people had such little faith in the youngest ever actor to play the Doctor, and I’m not afraid to say I was one of them… Until his first scene, that is -

Doctor Who is a science fiction show with no limits on adventure. The Doctor is a time-travelling Time Lord from the planet Gallifrey and is currently over a thousand-years-old. He uses his TARDIS, a Gallifreyan time-ship disguised as a 1950’s British police box, to traverse through space and time. This means that he can travel to anywhere and everywhere throughout the universe and sometimes (albeit accidentally!) beyond the universe with his trusty companion, usually a woman from modern day Earth.

Doctor Who exploded back onto our screens in 2005 following a nine year break after the film was released. The show was brought back with Christopher Eccleston in the title role, but sadly he only stayed one series, and at the end of that, the beloved Scotsman David Tennant took over the role, and stole the hearts of several fans, old and new.
