Capaldi is trying his hardest to look cool in that photo with Louise Jameson, but you know he's practically bursting with giddiness inside.

That Gravity Falls/Doctor Who animation! Absolutely awesome, but Clara looks a bit too much like Mabel... imagine the fan fictions now.

Well the average face of the Doctor was a solemn expression which is going to be normal after Capaldi's Doctor!

Some one should do an average face including all the unused doctors. I wonder how it will turn out!?

Love how in the Animated Doctor Who Adventures,Clara looks like Mabel from Gravity Falls :D I guess that's supposed to be like that because the music is pretty much a remix of Made Me Realize with tiny bits of the DW intro song.

Love that 50 years of the doctor, seeing how the four modern actors were inspired by days of old, and some gravity falls influence over the animated adventures is very cool and well done. :D

Is it just me or does the animated Doctor Who intro seem like the Gravity Falls intro?

Is it just me or is Louise Jameson's outfit rather... leathery? Is that a clue, then? *hopeful*

Loved "Transition" and "50 years of the Doctor". "Average face of the Doctor" was VERY impressive from a math point of view to my sleep deprived mind, now, at 3:00AM, but I'm sure it'll be equally brilliant tomorrow morning. Particularly loved the video maker's choice of musical accompaniment for when he lists the people who weren't factored in. A genuine laugh out laugh moment there :)

Just a heads up for the Aussies out there.

Peter and Jenna are going to be on Triple J tomorrow sometime between 3 - 5:30PM.

Actually anyone can listen online as well :)

Love the average face of the doctor (not the actual face: the video) and its great to see how popular Doctor Who has become in the World Tour greetings video. Who would have thought that some Nostalgic show back in 2005 would have become a major British Phenomenon.

Love the drawing at the top, It's about time alright

The Doctor showed me his new Tardis interior, I said I didn't like it :)

Absolutley Brilliant W&W -- Possibly the best I've ever seen in almost 2 years. It's always great to see how active the Whoniverse gets before a new series

The doctor's average face looks like Steven Moffat :D That cartoon intro is amazing.

I was right and you all said I was wrong, he was the only person to audition and that is incredibly bad. Wrong decision, many people should audition, it's obvious they are too far up Peter Capaldi's, let's end the sentence there anyway shall we.

Wow! That 'Average Faces Of The Doctor' was fascinating! VERITSERUMUK's Season 1 Series 8 style trailer was brilliant as well.

Anyone else think the average Doctor looks like Peter Capaldi with *really* bad hair?

I will comment on the rest in a moment - but first..... WHY IS LEELA ON THE TARDIS WHY IS LEELA ON THE TARDIS WHY IS LOUISE ON SET :o

Capaldi looks scarily satanic in the first artwork and scarily Messianic in the second! Also is he wearing a glittery shirt in the photo with Louise Jameson?!

Loved that Doctor Who Exclusive of Moffat explaining how he cast Peter into the role. Very interesting and exciting stuff. Though I do hope one day his audition tapes will be released so we can see what all the buzz was that automatically got him the job.

Discussion on the average Doctor face sounds like everyone is ordering some kind of 'Doctor Snack Box' from the local chinese only frequented by the drunkest of drunk people - "I'll have a large portion of Ten with a side of Seven, do I get a free Three with that? Oh and chips- just salt no vinegar- yeah lots of salt."

Obviously things get a bit embarrassing when someone tries to order 'a War'.

Is it me or does that Average face of the Doctor, look a touch like Steven Moffat? It all makes sense now :-)

That cyberman is definitely stalking Peter and Jenna.

Great Weird and Wonderful. I like the 50 years of the Doctor picture and I enjoyed the Noodle Doodle video.

@usmandikkoladan Mostly "Doctor Who" is the show but it can also be a reference to the character, even though he's called "The Doctor".

@sontaran17 Why did Peter Capaldi meet both Louise Jameson AND Janet Fielding over the course of filming? Probably coincidence.

Must be, right?

@TheOncomingStorm Both. Sesame Street helped me learn to read in the early 70s so I could read the Doctor Who comic strip in TV Comic....

(there was no DWM back then..)

@TheSoundofDrums  If it was recorded I'm sure they will be one day. Mind you after seeing Paul McGann's it really concerns me what the other actors were like,

And the animated Doctor Who looks interesting too.

@SephoraNeedSeries8 I will never understand the people who call Clara underrated. Her following is not only immense, but fanatically devoted. Call her perfect, call her wonderful, call her the new Sarah Jane Smith... heaven knows I've heard her called ALL of those, just on this website. I dispute them all, but you might have SOME grounds for saying them... but "underrated"??? 

Leela, yes. Definitely. Most people just see a girl in a sexy outfit.

But Clara? Her haters are a minority, and the majority tends to land on us like a ton of bricks whenever we say anything against her. Usually flooding us with an endless explanation of how wonderful she is.

So, underrated? No. 

Like her or not, the one thing she is not is underrated.
