You've not met Danny Pink... - Into the Dalek Preview - Doctor Who Series 8 Episode 2 (2014) - BBC

Sure there were cool Daleks in this week's episode of Doctor Who. But maybe more importantly, there was the debut of the show's latest recurring character, Danny Pink. If you've not yet seen Into the Dalek, don't watch this video. Instead, please proceed to iTunes, iPlayer or whatever is the official streamer in your locality. In most countries, there's plenty of time to catch up before episode 3 of series 8 rolls around this Saturday.

Brasil goes bonkers for Doctor Who

A doctor of art

Doctor Who was always meant to be partly educational. So it's only natural, as we begin a new Doctor's era, that we here at Tardis attempt a little education — provided from our brand new Doctor. Here, in a short video from the Tate Museum, former art student and Oscar® winner, Peter Capaldi, delves into the mysteries of the surrealist movement.

Brand new Doctor, same old rules

We define spoiler to be any information — be it narrative or behind-the-scenes — which surrounds any story in any medium that has not yet been released. It doesn't matter if the source is The Sun or the British Broadcasting Corporation — it's a violation of our policies to write about un-released stories, or the casting and crewing of those adventures.

Remember, we're not a news site. We're an encyclopaedia. Our focus is on what has already happened in the DWU, not what is to come.

In order to uphold this policy in 2014, we will occasionally have to restrict editing to only those people who have accounts. If you want to guarantee yourself the ability to edit once Peter Capaldi starts his run, we strongly recommend that you sign up for a totally free account today.

For clarity, information about the second episode of the series is not allowed before 30 August 2014 at roughly 9pm BST.

This means that even if you're lucky enough to see the first episode in cinemas during the World Tour period, you can't edit about it here until after its BBC One premiere.

Article of the minute

The Quantel Paintbox, more usually just called "Paintbox", was an early computer graphics workstation that revolutionised the way television graphics were produced in the 1980s. Like many other visual effects seen on early Doctor Who — such as colour separation overlay, Paintbox primarily had applications in sports and news programming, but was used more creatively by the visual effects designers of Doctor Who. Although Paintbox was primarily just for adding textual elements to pictures, the Doctor Who crew ambitiously used it for colour grading and for the insertion of simple graphical elements. Though its first use was in the Fourth Doctor story, The Leisure Hive, it was perhaps more noticeably used during the Sixth and Seventh Doctor's eras, particularly to give a more "alien ambience" to certain shots. Perhaps its most obvious applications were in the stories Mindwarp (pictured), Time and the Rani and Survival. Read more...

Quote of the minute

Fourth Doctor: We could be somewhere in England.
Sarah: How can you tell?
Fourth Doctor: Position of the stars, wind direction, temperature ...
Sarah: Yes, I'm glad you mentioned the temperature. It's like the Arctic out here. Even my goose pimples have goose pimples.

Popular categories

If you're new to wikis, it might be helpful for you to take note of the concept of categories. Categories are the principal organizing tool on a wiki, allowing users to group information in ways that can ease the discovery of information. All the pages on our wiki are found, ultimately, in just four big "super categories". If this is your first visit here, please go to Floor 500 for a discussion of the way our wiki is organized.

Real world
On our wiki, the world we actually live in is called the "real world" . As such, information about the production of Doctor Who and her sister shows are in this category. This includes pages about the actual televised episodes themselves, the behind-the-scenes personnel, terminology used by the production teams, and merchandise related to the shows.
Time-Space Visualiser
The Time-Space Visualiser is the place where most of this wiki's pages reside. All the articles are written from an in-universe perspective, quite different to what you might be used to on Wikipedia. Here you'll find information related to The Doctor, his companions, Other individuals, astronomical objects, time travel, species, locations, science, culture, and a whole host of other subjects.
Non-DWU material
Notwithstanding writer Paul Cornell's famous comments that denounced the concept of "canon" in Doctor Who, our canon policy does deem a few things to be outside the Doctor Who universe. For examples, visit: stories, characters, technology, species, and locations.
The Hub
This category contains articles having to do with the actual running of the wiki. It's full of all those little pages that help the wiki work. As such, it isn't accessed often by most users. However, more advanced editors might wish to peruse the templates category for ways to make their editing easier. Or if you're looking for a place to start editing on the wiki, you might want to look at articles that need updating, major expansion, general copy-editing, sectional cleanup, and re-writing from an in-universe perspective.
