Everyone thinks that working from home is so easy. It isn’t. It has its own challenges. Your work day never seems to end, for one thing. Oh and your kids invading your home office, that’s gonna happen.
The BBC Earth and PBS animatronic wild animal series Spy in the Wild places realistic animatronic creatures in the midst of real ones so they can capture never-before-seen video of animals in their native habitats. The producers of the series have released a cool new video that shows off the amazing technology under the “skin” of these realistic animals.
Doctor Who fans will get to enjoy a new companion in the new season of the long running show. Jenna Coleman is out as Clara Oswald and the new companion is simply named “Bill,” played by actress Pearl Mackie.
Remember Robot Wars? The show that pits robot against robot in a fight to the death? Well, the BBC are bringing back the series with more robots and more destruction.
In case you don’t know, Robot Wars ran on the BBC between 1998 and 2003, and was hugely popular.
This is the confectionery crossover that has so far eluded us on the TV screen. The Doctor and the Detective together at last. Both shows are headed by Steven Moffat, both characters are equally crazy and brilliant, and now they are a part of the same Christmas treat.
Fans of the BBC series Sherlock have been clamoring to see what happens in the new season of the show, since the last season ended with the tragic demise of Sherlock Holmes. Or did it? Now, the premiere date for the new season of the show was tipped in an interesting way.
If you’re a fan of the BBC science-fiction series Doctor Who you probably know that the series has been on the air for 50 years. That’s a long time for any television show to be on the air and I imagine much of the success comes from the premise in the series allowing the actor who plays the Doctor to be replaced on a whim.
I’ll admit that despite my love for science fiction and things geeky I’ve never been a fan of Doctor Who. I tried watching the show and I’ve never succeeded in making it through the first commercial break.
If you’re a fan of BBC programs like Doctor Who, Top Gear, and more and enjoy the iPlayer app, check this out. The app for iOS has got a lot more useful with the ability to download your favorite BBC TV shows directly to the smartphone or your tablet.
Daleks just got even scarier. The fine folks at the BBC’s R&D division have created a system in which Daleks in front of a TV can mimic the actions of the Daleks on the screen. In other words, when the Daleks on screen move towards their target, like the Doctor for instance, so will the model in your living room.
It was a strange sight on London’s Westminster Bridge when people saw Daleks rolling about, getting ready to exterminate everyone. The procession included four generations of Daleks, showing how the mutant creatures had evolved during the years.
I happen to think watching tennis is right up there with watching golf and watching paint dry. The sports might be fun to play, but watching them on TV leaves me in a bored stupor. I also don’t care for watching soccer on TV, but I do recall when the World Cup was going on all those fans who brought out those noisy Vuvuzela horns.
While it was revealed that the Daleks would not be seen in the current series of Doctor Who on BBC, that doesn’t stop the awesomeness of this full scale replica from ‘This Planet Earth LTD’. To top it all off, it’s an official replica, not just some fan-made thing.
Matt Smith, the 11th Doctor has been on the air for over a year now, and it’s high time for a replica of his sonic screwdriver to be made. Just like the Doctor changes bodies when he regenerates, the same thing happens to his tech.
Speakal has just announced a TARDIS speaker for all you Doctor Who fanatics out there. Oh, and if you’re a Top Gear fan, and still like the Stig even though the real Stig betrayed Top Gear and aired the show’s dirty laundry in a tell-all book, you can dock your iPhone in a Stig helmet.
You know the Daleks? Those pesky cybernetic lifeforms from Doctor Who, which are supposed to be the epitome of living and cybernetic organisms? Well, apparently if you had written to the BBC in the 1970s or 1980s asking them information about how to build your own, they would have sent you these plans.
