Episode 92 – Bat/Bad Dads

On this episode of Nerd & Tie we mourn the passing of Richard Hatch, celebrate the joy that is The Lego Batman Movie, consider Ben Affleck’s departure from The Batman‘s director’s chair, and prematurely miss Peter Capaldi leaving Doctor Who. Then it’s on to the con scene, where Eternal Con organizer Frank Patz has gotten himself banned from New York Comic Con (and all ReedPop events), STX Brazos Valley Comic Con guests are getting charged for hotel rooms that were supposedly paid for, and Crunchyroll has decided that Northern California totally needs another anime convention.

Just like most of us need another hole in the head.

Peter Capaldi Will Leave ‘Doctor Who’ at the End of This Year

Peter Capaldi’s time on Doctor Who has been pretty impressive, and Series 9 was probably the strongest part of Steven Moffat’s soon ending run. But even though we still have Series 10 to look forward to with the twelfth Doctor, it appears it will be the last hurrah.

The BBC tweeted out the following earlier today:

The official Doctor Who Twitter went on to clarify that the 2017 Christmas Special was going to be his final episode in the role.

While this still means we have plenty of time with Capaldi’s Twelve, it’s sad to see him go. This means that as Steven Moffat steps down as showrunner, new showrunner Chris Chibnall will get to start with a fresh actor taking over our titular Timelord’s shoes. Honestly, I’m a little disappointed, as I would have loved to have seen what Capaldi and Chibnall could have done together.

Doctor Who series 10 begins airing April 15th.

Episode 82 – Live at the Nerd & Tie Expo!

On this episode, recorded live at the first Nerd & Tie Expo, we mourn the loss of C. Martin Crocker, celebrate Tatiana Maslany’s Emmy win, stare blankly at the live action Ghost in the Shell teasers, discuss Peter Capaldi appearing on the upcoming Doctor Who spin off Class, consider the Black Lightning pilot ordered by Fox, and lament the delay of Star Trek: Discovery to next May.

We also do mailbag, respond to the audience, and Nick says something really weird in front of Voice Actress Tiffany Grant.

She was in the front row.
