The Dominators [Classic Doctor Who]

Doctor Who has long been my favorite show, but until recently rewatchings of old episodes have been few and far between.  This has changed in the last couple of years as I have been using birthday and Christmas money to buy some of the old episodes, usually enjoying them with one or two of my nerdier daughters.

Fictional Characters Who Came Face to Face with their Double [Random Pop Culture Top…something] – Part Two

A little while ago I wrote about Fictional Twins (see here) and that got me thinking about all those other instances that were kind of like twins, but not really. And that’s led to this post, which is about all the different reasons that I can think of that characters in fiction run into apparent duplicates of themselves, and some of my favorite examples of each!

So the list here isn’t a countdown exactly–it’s in more of an intuitive order or each category, rather than a “worst to best” order of the specific examples. Each entry on the list is a reason why characters have exact doubles out there for them to run into (and there are a lot of reasons, it turns out), accompanied by a notable example for that reason.

To be clear, we’re not just talking about stories where doubles of characters exist, but specifically where characters come face to face with (it would seem)…themselves.

Doctor Who Timeline: Debuts & Departures Timeline

I found myself getting curious about the various ages of different actors and creators involved with Doctor Who over the years, and so today we have a little timeline that tells us throughout the years of when people were born, when they debuted on the show, and when they died (for those no longer living).

Doctor Who A to Z: V is for Villains

Inspired by a series of Facebook posts that I saw, we have been running through an alphabetical series of Doctor Who-related themes. However, lately there haven’t been any updates to the Facebook posts so I hadn’t been continuing this series. I’ve decided not to wait any longer and just come up with own prompts. So, today we continue this with the letter V…
