Week in Geek | Doctor Who Confirms #Thasmin is Canon

Week in Geek is The Companion‘s weekly digest of all the latest trailers, announcements, controversies, spicy memes, and more. Not everyone has the time or inclination to sit on social media all day staying on top of this… but we do and we need to justify the time we’ve wasted.

If you’d like Week in Geek poured piping hot into your inbox every Monday, sign up here.

What We’re Looking At

Rafa Orrico is inspired by the unsettling Polish movie posters of the Communist era. If you like what you see, he has a book out.

Okay, we missed it in the rush towards the holidays but there’s a first pic from The Orville Season 3.


What We’re Watching

Clutch your pearls for the new red-band Peacemaker trailer. The show is coming to HBO Max on January 13.

What We’re Buying*

*These aren’t sponsored, we don’t get a cut, and nobody sends us freebies. It’s just some cool stuff we’re lusting over hard.

Explore Doctor Who‘s New Adventures in a new hardcover from fandom archivist David J. Howe priced £34.99 GBP (approx $48 USD).

In it, you’ll discover the early role played by writers like Mark Gatiss and Steven Moffat in keeping the story alive when the show was off-air

Get the look of Boba Fett with the new bounty hunter-inspired Ozelia from Adidas.

The design riffs on Fett’s ship and is available in the US store for $100 USD. (approx £74 GBP)

Sci-fi fandom needs your help. Nobody else writes the deep dive articles we do. Nobody else creates in-depth interview podcasts or invites you to put questions to showrunners and stars. And nobody else treats your favorite sci-fi shows and movies like they matter – like they can save lives or change them – but we do.

None of that is cheap. Great writing costs money, original analysis costs money, and audio/video production costs money. We keep our costs as low as we can, but we refuse to compromise on quality.

We’re not backed by studios or massive media conglomerates. There are five of us fighting every second to make The Companion all that it can be. We’ll never accept paid advertising on The Companion because if we did we wouldn’t be able to write about whatever you like, the way that you like.

That’s why we need geeks like you to join us

Sign up now. If you don’t like it, simply cancel and you won’t be charged. But if you do stay, your membership goes towards creating more of the content you love on the sci-fi shows and movies that you love.
