Doctor Who Gets Trippy as Hell and Trips Over Itself in the Process

That Was Doctor Who's Starkest Lesson in Years

Doctor Who has been a morality play since its earliest days. Ever since the first Doctor picked up a couple of teachers and his young granddaughter for adventures in time and space, it has been a show seeking to educate as much as it does entertain.

When You're an Alpha Chimp, Life Isn't a Barrel of Monkeys

Chimpanzees are clever creatures that are known for learning skills to make their lives easier, like using twigs to pull tasty termites out of their dirt mounds for an easy snack. But in a surprising scene that unfolds in a clip from BBC America's new series, "Dynasties," male chimps, in particular, don't have it so easy.
