Doctor Who: Looking back on 2005's 'Rose' 10 years on

25 March 2015 5:01 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

It's crazy to think now, 10 years on, that the reputation surrounding Doctor Who before the broadcast of series one episode 'Rose' - starring Christopher Eccleston and Billie Piper - in 2005, was not what it is now.

In fact, in the pre-2005 Who landscape, it's safe to say that in terms of the general public and especially in the media, the series was regarded as a bad joke. And not even a very good bad joke at that.

The press just didn't take it seriously. In the aftermath of the initial 2003 announcement of the show's return, tabloids suggested that people like Paul Daniels and Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen were in the running to be the new Doctor Who. Remember, they're not even actors.

But before another lazy journalist had the time to type "wobbly sets" for the 13th time that hour, a masterstroke was pulled - the BBC presented Christopher Eccleston as the »

Like mother, like son! Elizabeth Hurley brought her son with Steve Bing, Damian, to the London premiere of her new show, "The Royals," on Tuesday -- and he looks strikingly similar to his gorgeous mama.Sporting a dark suit with a purple tie, the 12-year-old looked all grown up as he posed for pictures on the Union Jack-patterned carpet. Meanwhile, the 49-year-old actress dazzled in an asymmetrical red dress with a sexy slit along her trim waist.

Seth Meyers made an absolute ass of Ted Cruz

18 March 2015 10:37 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

I can appreciate David Letterman unnerving Paris Hilton or Jay Leno razzing Hugh Grant about his dalliances in the red light district, but for the most part I just can't sit through uncomfortable talk show appearances. They're too insane. The audience picks one talker to side with, hostility leads to curtness, and suddenly everyone is just angry and unfunny and overheated. I'd rather just watch "Wheel of Fortune," thanks.  But Seth Meyers' chat with the arguably smug Sen. Ted Cruz is a worthy viewing. Get through the discomfort and Cruz's ridiculous "The world's on fire!" diatribe and just enjoy the "Late Night" host being witty and damning.   »

Elizabeth Hurley in the hot seat!  The star of "The Royals" stopped by "Watch What Happens Live" on Tuesday, and this time it was her turn to play a game of "Plead The Fifth" with Andy Cohen.   The host previously treated the 49-year-old's ex, Hugh Grant, to the game last month -- where he asked the actor what the reason for their split was.   Now it's the British beauty's turn to tell all!  "I know that you watched your friend Hugh Grant on the show, you saw him play "Plead the Fifth", and you might know that when he did we asked him what he thought the reason that your relationship did not work out was," he told the star.

Elizabeth Hurley on Hugh Grant: 'He's Very Annoying' (but a Great Lover)

11 March 2015 8:50 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Hugh Grant is known for his bumbling British charm, but it didn't work on his ex Elizabeth Hurley. The model, 49, stopped by Bravo's Watch What Happens Live to talk about her new series The Royals and share secrets about her old fling. "I love him, but he's very annoying," Hurley told host Andy Cohen. Hurley said it was this bothersome personality trait that led to the (amicable) end of their 13-year relationship in 2000. "My friends used to call him Grumpelstiltskin. He is grumpy," she continued. The actor, 54, has a different take on why things didn't work between him and Hurley. »

Elizabeth Hurley Says Hugh Grant Is ‘Annoying,’ ‘Grumpy’ -- But a ‘10’ in Bed

11 March 2015 5:25 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

When it comes to shagging Hugh Grant and the royal family, Elizabeth Hurley does not plead the fifth!

During a visit to Watch What Happens Live, the 49-year-old actress is grilled by host Andy Cohen on her ex-beau Hugh Grant.

Hugh Grant Is 'Delighted' When He's Not Acting

“He used to really annoy me. I love him but he’s very annoying,” Hurley said when asked about why the two broke up after 13 years together. “Did he annoy you when he was here?”

“He was very cranky,” Cohen said in response to Hurley’s question. And in Cohen’s defense, Grant made a disgruntled appearance while on the show just weeks prior, looking very annoyed by the whole experience.

“He is grumpy,” Hurley added, further dismantling the charming, romantic image fans have of the actor.

It's payback time! Hugh Grant opened up about his relationship with Elizabeth Hurley on Bravo's Watch What Happens Live last month, and on Tuesday, it was his ex-girlfriend's turn to dish on their romance.
