Stories are our primary sources. Not BBC press announcements.
On this site, the very core of our spoiler policy is that we wait for a story to be released before posting any information about it. So if the BBC were to announce crucial casting or crewing information, and even if they were to do it on television in a massively public way, that information cannot appear on this site until the story affected by such an announcement were broadcast.
As is said in many places on this site, if you post spoilers about stories that are yet to come — such as, but not limited to, the anniversary special and the 2013 Christmas special — your editing privileges will be revoked.
This site is about Doctor Who's past, not its future. Taking this stance allows all users — regardless of their definition of the word spoiler — to work towards a common goal. So whatever you might have heard about Doctor Who in August 2013 is not allowed until later in the year.
Times, they are a-changin'
Over the next month or so, the front page will undergo a face lift which we hope will make our content super easy to find! And we'll be finishing up all those little formatting issues that are lingering after our 1Q 2013 overhaul to make the site more accessible to those with visual acuity issues. By June, all those colour issues that are currently driving you crazy — like illegible headers on some tables — will be cleared up. If you do see things that need addressing, please help us out by noting them at the bulletin board of colour problems that need fixing.
We also invite you to stop by the Panopticon right now to participate in a number of important discussions that will change the wiki.
While the front page is under construction, though, we thought we'd resurrect a bit of interactivity and give you a chance to give some fun feedback. We've already tried one poll since the finalé, and — wow! — what an overwhelming response! 3865 people voted. Of them, a whopping 2321 thought that the question, "Who is Clara Oswald?" had the best answer. The River Song mystery came in second with 1409, but Lucie Miller and Majenta Pryce had only about 150 votes between them.
So now that we've settled that pretty conclusively, let's try something new:
This wiki contains spoilers. Read at your own risk.
Article of the minute1980's State of Decay featured the first use of overtly vampiric themes in Doctor Who televised history, while at the same time providing many details about Time Lord history. It was also the subject of an infamous behind-the-scenes battle over whether writer Terrance Dicks or script editor Christopher H. Bidmead would exert the greater control over the script. Dicks largely won that battle, thanks to the insistence of director Peter Moffatt — but "Uncle Terrance" would nevertheless go on to write two other, distinct versions of the story. Read more... ✍

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. ✍
