Thought the cover was mindblowing? Well, how about a whole gallery of brand-new, exclusive Cumberbatch (and Freeman) photos?

Yup.

This week in EW: Our obsessive guide to Downton Abbey keeps our Winter TV Preview issue classy.

Cybermen. The Silence. A Dalek. A Weeping Angel. Doctor Who presents: The Many Monsters of Christmas.

Look who stopped by outside EW’s office — it’s the Downton Abbey Tea Truck! (P.S. Aren’t interns Jodi and Shirley cute?)

On the eve of Doctor Who‘s eagerly awaited 50th Anniversary special — which will be unveiled tomorrow on BBC America at 2:50 p.m. ET — Dr. Britton revealed to us 15 strange and fascinating Doctor Who facts, covering everything from Steven Moffat’s thoughts on Matt Smith’s bowtie to what inspired The Weeping Angels.

Ask and ye shall receive: Orphan Black's Tatiana Maslany talks season 1 and why she hopes the show gets a little Emmy love —

“It would be so amazing if the show got nominated or we got out there; I think people would be really excited about that because so many incredible sci-fi-shows go under the radar and don’t get taken seriously in award season,” she says. “But I think sci-fi definitely belongs there because it tells sort of subversive stories about society without hitting you over the head. It puts very real stories into the context of a fantastical world, so there’s a sense of escapism but there’s also a sense of, ‘This isn’t far from our reality.’”
