Take a look at a moody new teaser image for Doctor Who series 9

3 July 2015 8:39 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

As the anticipation for Doctor Who's next series builds, the BBC has released a new sneak peak.

Peter Capaldi's Time Lord is seen stepping from the Tardis and onto a barren-looking landscape in the new picture.

Capaldi has hinted that series nine of the BBC sci-fi series will have an "epic sweep" and feature foes old and new.

Doctor Who will return to BBC One this autumn, with the Doctor making "a mistake that has cataclysmic repercussions" in the opening two-parter from head writer Steven Moffat.

Jenna Coleman will also return as companion Clara for the new series, while guest stars include Game of Thrones' Maisie Williams and Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell actor Paul Kaye.

Peter Capaldi says Doctor Who series 9 has an epic sweep

2 July 2015 10:20 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Peter Capaldi has promised "an epic sweep" for the upcoming ninth series of Doctor Who.

Returning for his second series as the Time Lord, he told Entertainment Weekly that fans can expect old monsters and "great new ones".

"There is an epic sweep to this season and I think the villains and monsters reflect that," he said. "Great new ones, brilliant old ones, and some very scary creatures looming in stories with real emotional ambition."

Capaldi also hinted that his Doctor would be less curmudgeonly - "throwing himself into life with a newfound hunger for adventure".

"He's in pursuit of joy and grabbing every thrill that he can along the way," he teased. "But I sense him running from something, that even he does not yet understand."

Doctor Who will return to BBC One this autumn, with Capaldi also dropping big clues as to what to expect from the two-part »

‘Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell’ Review

1 July 2015 11:57 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

If shows like Doctor Who prove anything, it is that BBC are good at fantasy.  So it’s somewhat of a surprise that they haven’t tapped into the popularity of Harry Potter or at least done it sooner… but finally things have changed with Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell.

With magic a lost art in England, two men, Mr Norrell (Eddie Marsan) and his student Jonathan Strange (Bertie Carvel) look to bring it back to the popularity it had in the past.  When Strange’s powers seemingly surpass Norrell’s the two begin to feud about how magic should be used in England, Norrell wanting to be more restrained where Strange wanting it to be free and natural.  With magic growing stronger and more dangerous, the two magicians are pitted in a dangerous battle which may result in the Raven King, reputed to have once been the strongest magician that ever lived. »

Doctor Who series 9: Everything we know so far

1 July 2015 2:50 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Last Updated: July 1, 2015

Doctor Who is the persistent subject of rumours - from the credible to the outright absurd - and it can be difficult to separate what's fact from what's fiction.

Lucky for you, dear reader, that Digital Spy is on hand to cut a swathe through the nonsense - these are the facts, 100% confirmed, about series 9 of the world's greatest science-fiction series.

Filming began on the 9th series of Doctor Who - its 35th run overall - on January 5, 2015 for a planned transmission in the autumn. Steven Moffat will serve as lead writer and executive producer for the fifth time.

Peter Capaldi will return for his second full series as the Doctor, while Jenna Coleman will be back for her third run of episodes as Clara Oswald.

Coleman was widely expected to be leaving the series in the 2014 Christmas special - and indeed had planned to exit - »

Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell: Were you won over by its magic?

28 June 2015 2:00 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

BBC One sought to restore magic to Sunday nights with its 7-part adaptation of Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell - Susanna Clarke's acclaimed novel of the fantastic.

But did the series - adapted by Doctor Who writer Peter Harness - put a spell on you, or were you immune to its charms?

Digital Spy wants your thoughts - was this a stirring or a staid adaptation of the book? What did it do right - and what did it do wrong?

Are you keen for the BBC to explore Clarke's world again? Harness told DS that he would "love to" be involved in a follow-up - but would you watch?

Clarke has spoken of plans for a quasi-sequel, following the characters of Childermass (Enzo Cilenti) and Vinculus (Paul Kaye). Would you watch a spinoff - or would you lose interest without Strange (Bertie Carvel) and Norrell (Eddie Marsan)?

Emilia Clarke Talks ‘Game of Thrones’ Finale and That Supposed Death

26 June 2015 5:41 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Spoiler warning: Do not read on unless you’ve seen the “Game of Thrones” season five finale.

Even the stars of “Game of Thrones” aren’t immune to speculating about the fates of their favorite characters — just ask the Mother of Dragons herself, Emilia Clarke, who has some theories about the status of Jon Snow (Kit Harington), who met a grisly demise at the hands of his Night’s Watch brothers in the season five finale — or did he?

Despite Harington and showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss insisting that the Bastard of Winterfell is dead and gone, the woman behind Daenerys Targaryen isn’t convinced that we’ve seen the last of Jon Snow.

“If I have to bet, I’d say it’s a 50/50 chance — there’s some helpful people there who could bring him on back to life,” Clarke pointed out during an interview with MTV, referring »

Humans episode 2 review

23 June 2015 5:00 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Are the lines between human beings and synths really that clear? Here's Michael's review of Humans episode 2...

This review contains spoilers.

One of the smarter visual jokes that Humans offered was the sight of Karen Voss, gazing soulessly into middle distance while waiting for Pete to come to the car. For a tiny moment, it seemed as though she too was a synth (as indeed she, or anyone else, may yet prove to be). Suddenly she jolted into life and we were prompted once again to think of her as a living, breathing human being. It was a clever move as it stressed the importance that this show is placing on the gossamer gap between humans and synths, a philosophical problem that the writers and actors are mining for all its worth.

It truly is a team effort, with the synth performers, notably Gemma Chan as Anita and Emily Berrington as Niska, »

10 Pieces Of Doctor Who Merchandise You Won’t Believe Exist

16 June 2015 7:58 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »


In the pantheon of TV sci-fi, Doctor Who is something incredible. Ostensibly the story of a mad man in a box who travels in time and space, saving people almost entirely from their own hubris or occasionally a malevolent race of metal gum-ball machines. As a concept, you would doubt that it has a couple of years’ worth of life in it, let alone 50.

And yet here we are. Now in its 52nd year, fans are already getting excited at the prospect of the next series under crotchety Doctor, Peter Capaldi, and guest appearances by the likes of Maisie Williams (Arya Stark from Game of Thrones… unless they’ve bumped her off), Paul Kaye and Rebecca Front.

The Doctor’s longevity can be put down as much to his astonishing fans as it can to the stories and with great fans comes great merchandise.

Joivan Wade will be reprising his character of Rigsy in Doctor Who's ninth series.

Rigsy first appeared in last year's episode 'Flatline', and will now make his next appearance in an episode directed by Justin Molotnikov and written by The Game's Sarah Dollard.

The Being Human writer said of her episode: "Getting to play in the Doctor Who toy box is a dream come true. It's a total honour to contribute to a show that has brought me such joy as a fan.

"However, writing for Peter Capaldi and Jenna Coleman has presented a serious problem: some days I've been too excited to actually sit down and type!"

Rigsy is a young graffiti artist who helped save the world in 'Flatline', and he will now reunite in a new adventure with the Doctor (Capaldi) and Clara (Coleman).

Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell: episode one recap – The Friends of English Magic

17 May 2015 2:00 PM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

In the first episode of the adaptation of Susanna Clarke’s fantasy novel, we meet the Learned Society of York Magicians, explore Norrell’s library, and hear a warning about a Raven King

And so, filling our magic bowl with water and scattering around some dead petunias, we embark upon director Toby Hayne’s ambitious adaptation of Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell, Susanna Clarke’s girthsome doorstop, a bewilderingly detailed “tale of the fantastic”, as Neil Gaiman so gracefully described it. As a reader and now viewer – and let’s just get it out there from the get-go, I’m an evangelistic fan of the book – this is an apprehensive time indeed. But there is much in the plus column before the titles roll. The casting here is reassuringly sturdy. Eddie Marsan is Gilbert Norrell, the humourless magician of York, opposite Bertie “Babylon” Carvel’s Strange, a charming, but directionless flibbertigibbet. »

Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell episode 1 review: The Friends Of English Magic

17 May 2015 10:54 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

BBC One fantasy drama Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell is a marvel, from its cast to its magnificent world-building…

This review contains spoilers.

1.1 The Friends Of English Magic

If, like members of the fusty York Society Of Magicians, you needed proof that magic has been restored to England, that episode was it. Forget bringing half a hundred statues to life, Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell has pulled off an even unlikelier feat: bringing quality grown-up fantasy to UK television.

Susanna Clarke’s source novel was a canny choice for the task. Its Regency setting plays to the BBC’s period drama strengths and grounds the seven-part series in a recognisable context for any viewers who might ordinarily run a mile at the word ‘faerie’.

Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell: the best UK fantasy in years

10 May 2015 12:34 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Starting next Sunday on BBC One, Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell is a genre-bending British drama worth getting very excited about...

What are some of the best British dramas of recent years? Here’s just a few. Wolf Hall, Utopia, Peaky Blinders, Broadchurch, Happy Valley, Luther, Doctor Who and In The Flesh. It's been said to death but remains the case: we truly are in a golden age of original British drama. But now you might just have to make room for a new favourite. I don’t think it’s hyperbolic to say that Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell is the finest new drama that’s been on our screens this decade. In fact, if the first two episodes are anything to go by, it could go down as one of the best this century.

As an adaptation of Susanna Clarke’s epic genre-bending novel, it’s almost perfect. As a »

BBC Reveal New ‘Doctor Who’ Monster

He’s faced such foes as the Daleks, Cybermen and Ukip, after leader Nigel Farage argued his adventures should cease under a slashed licence fee.

The on-set snap comes hot on the heels of a teaser image released by the corporation earlier in the week…

'Pan' Gets New October 2015 Release Date

20 April 2015 6:48 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Giving both the film and the filmmakers some extra breathing room, the opening date of Warner Bros. Pictures' action adventure Pan has been moved to fall and will begin its global launch with the new domestic release date of October 9, 2015. The announcement was made today by Dan Fellman, President, Domestic Distribution, and Veronika Kwan Vandenberg, President, International Distribution, Warner Bros. Pictures. Pan will now go up against Relativity's Kidnap and Universal's Steve Jobs on October 9. Here's what Dan Fellman had to say in a statement.

"We wanted to give Pan the space to extend its theatrical run, so taking it out of the cluttered summer season made the most sense. Moving the film to the heart of the fall will allow us more time to screen the picture, enabling us to capitalize on what we anticipate will be strong word of mouth."

Veronika Kwan Vandenberg added her own statement.

‘It’s All Gone Pete Tong’ remains content in achieving its modest goals

20 April 2015 3:00 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

It’s All Gone Pete Tong

Written and directed by Michael Dowse

Canada, 2004

The term ‘mockumentary’ is used whenever a film comes along employs the familiar storytelling techniques typically found in documentary filmmaking but for a piece of fiction, specifically comedy. In other words, a parody of a documentary. Talking heads played by actors, characters interacting with the camera, such tropes, hallmarks of documentaries, are turned on their heads as everything in the mockumentary is in actuality a construct of screenwriters and a director and played for giggles. Certainly one of the more fondly remembered examples is the hilarious This is Spinal Tap, the Rob Reiner picture that follows the trials and tribulations of the titular fictional heavy metal band. Few other mockumentaries have ever reached the same heights of verisimilitude to actual documentaries. In 2004 Michael Dowse took his own stab at the genre, so to speak, with It’s All Gone Pete Tong, »
