The Voice Recap: Blown Encounters of the Last Blinds [Updated]

6 October 2014 7:36 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Let the bloodletting and chaff-separating begin!

Tonight’s final installment of The Voice‘s Season 7 Blind Auditions was about as strong as a freshly-hatched chick trying to budge an anvil — side note: I need an inspirational poster with that exact visual — and whet my appetite for the rapid-fire eliminations of the Battle Rounds.

Nick Frost Tops Doctor Who Christmas Special Guest List

19 September 2014 12:01 PM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

Confirming recently circulating rumors, the BBC announced today that Nick Frost will guest-star in this year’s Doctor Who Christmas special.

Nick comments: “I’m so thrilled to have been asked to guest in the Doctor Who Christmas special, I’m such a fan of the show. The read-through was very difficult for me; I wanted to keep stuffing my fingers into my ears and scream “No spoilers!” Every day on set I’ve had to silence my internal fan boy squeals!”

Nick’s frequent partner in crime Simon Pegg appeared in the Eccleston adventure The Long Game as the Editor of Satellite Five, and servant of the Mighty Jagrafess of the Editor-in-Chief, the Holy Hadrojassic Maxarodenfoe (And yes, I used cut and paste, there’s none of us perfect). Other members of the Pegg / Frost / Edgar Wright repertory company who have appeared on the series include Michael Smiley in »

The actors who played multiple roles in Doctor Who

12 August 2014 2:48 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Peter Capaldi is far from the only Doctor Who actor to appear in multiple roles. Mark talks us through the many others to have done so...

It's been just over a year since the BBC announced that Peter Capaldi would play the Twelfth Doctor. There were rumblings of his casting in the week before the announcement was made, to the point where bookies stopped taking bets on it.

We've spent the last twelve months in anticipation of what seems like dream casting for the Time Lord, but some of us were a little sceptical that an actor of his profile and standing would take the role until it was actually announced, but “he's been in it before” was not atop the list of reasons why we thought it was too good to be true.

Over the course of 50 years, Doctor Who has inevitably reused actors as different characters- there are »

Teen Wolf Recap: To Catch a Predator

11 August 2014 8:20 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Scott and his pack set a trap for the Benefactor on Monday’s Teen Wolf, but unfortunately, they forgot the first rule of villain-catching: If you’re going to fake your own death, you’d better tell your mom first!

Related Teen Wolf Recap: Going Viral

Mama McCall suffered an epic, albeit totally appropriate, breakdown before eventually learning that Scott was merely in a Kira-induced coma (which really shouldn’t have been that much of a relief.) Fortunately, there was one upside to Scott’s coma: He got to have a series of freaky dreams, which — thanks to Stiles’ brief »

Doctor Who: the film careers of Matt Smith and Peter Capaldi

4 June 2014 11:59 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Alex's series looking back at the film careers of actors who've played the Doctor finishes with Matt Smith and Peter Capaldi...

Feature

Read the previous part in this series: the film careers of Christopher Eccleston and David Tennant, here.

By 2009, the new version of Doctor Who had become not only an integral part of Saturday night television and a huge Christmas ratings winner but also an international success all over again. David Tennant, who had played the Time Lord since 2005 and was, arguably, more popular than any Doctor since the mighty Tom Baker hung up his scarf in 1981, had announced his resignation from the part he loved in October 2008. Many wondered how the incoming showrunner, Steven Moffat, would follow Tennant and what kind of show would emerge.

Tennant spent much of 2009 on stage in Hamlet and was only able to devote small amounts of time to Doctor Who. Occasional specials »

Tribeca Film Review: ‘Time Is Illmatic’

17 April 2014 1:00 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

It’s unlikely that hip-hop documentary “Time Is Illmatic” will have many showings as thrilling as its opening-night slot at this year’s Tribeca Film Festival, where it preceded an impassioned live performance by its subject, the artist born Nasir bin Olu Dara Jones and better known by his stage name: Nas. Still, this brisk, stylish and extremely heartfelt portrait of Nas’ rise from the housing projects of Queensbridge to the heights of hip-hop royalty ably stands on its own, marked by an admirable focus on the man and his music rather than hype and hagiography. Sure to be embraced by fans (but also a fine primer for neophytes), “Time” should have a long home-viewing shelf life following additional fest and select theatrical bookings.

In his feature directing debut, the former graffiti artist and graphic designer One9 smartly avoids trying for a comprehensive career portrait of Nas, instead centering on »

'Glee' 100th episode party, On the Scene: Stars look back on 100 episodes, reveal whose song they would steal

19 March 2014 4:32 PM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

When Glee first debuted in 2009, the Fox series incorporated music in a way that hadn’t been seen on television before. Without any big-name stars in the cast, the show was a definite risk. Now, more than five years and 100 episodes later, the risk has more than paid off. With a 3-D film, sold-out concert tours, millions of albums sold, and Billboard records broken, the cast and crew got together in Hollywood on Tuesday night — the same night the show’s 100th episode aired – with plenty to celebrate. EW was on the scene and asked the cast to look back »

Doctor Who: the Doctor in disguise

3 February 2014 11:32 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Feature Alex Westthorp 4 Feb 2014 - 07:00

From washer women to harlequins via milkmen, Alex looks back over the Doctor's penchant for disguise over the decades...

So, we've finally had our first glimpse of Peter Capaldi in his new Doctor Who costume. My personal opinion for the record: It's functional yet stylish and could be the basis of something more elaborate over time. Importantly though, it is a bold statement of  exactly who this new Doctor is. Identity is important to the Doctor, whether developing his own or assuming that of another to defeat his opponents in his continuing quest to bring his own brand of humanity to the universe.

With that in mind, let's revisit our favourite Time Lord's ability to disguise himself in order to outwit his opponents. I should state at the outset this isn't a definitive list of every disguise the character has worn. Every Doctor has »

'The Bachelor' wedding: What you didn't see on TV

26 January 2014 11:31 PM, PST | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

If you’re like me, rose lovers, you were perfectly content to watch The Bachelor: Sean and Catherine’s Wedding from the comfort of your own couch. But a few weeks ago, I received word that 84-year-old Bachelor superfan — and occasional EW.com Bachelor correspondent — Nanny, wanted to be there to witness Sean and Catherine’s special day. Clearly, I had to make this happen. After telling the good people at ABC and Warner Bros. about Nanny (and sending them some links to her brilliant commentary, like this, and this, and this), they knew there was simply no way »
