The film critics who turned to filmmaking

22 January 2015 8:46 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From the Pudsey The Dog movie to Joe Cornish and Roger Ebert, what happens when critics make films themselves?

Arts critics tend to get a rough time of it in the movies. Even looking at this year's awards season hopefuls, Birdman casts a wonderfully scabrous Lindsay Duncan as a theatre critic who is determined to kill the hero's play, and Mr. Turner presents John Ruskin as a lisping, pretentious fop, a representation that has led some to take mild umbrage.

To look even further back, at Ratatouille's sneering Anton Ego, or Lady In The Water's film-savvy 'straw critic', or Theatre Of Blood's gleefully murderous tract, there's not a whole lot of love for critics in film. Any of this might give way to the preconception that critics, especially film critics, don't actually like films and that they're out of touch with both the filmmakers whose works they »

James Lomond is a writer at Kasterborous Doctor Who News and Reviews - All the latest Doctor Who news and reviews with our weekly podKast, features and interviews, and a long-running forum.

Someone’s dropped the S-Bomb on the Moff. Again. In fact it’s the third accusation of sexism from this particular chap… Heavy-duty blogger, Alex Gabriel, has given a rather damning appraisal of women in Moffat’s writing – and not just in Doctor Who. This will be familiar ground for most Kasterborites. Showrunner and BAFTA award winning...

5 Ways The Fourth Doctor Impacted Doctor Who History

21 January 2015 5:14 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

BBC

In honour of Tom Baker’s birthday, it’s time to look on some of the many ways that his incarnation has influenced Doctor Who. He’s arguably the most recognisable Classic Doctor and some would even say he’s the show’s defining incarnation in the history of the titular Time Lord. And there’s good reason for that, too.

With the yet to be rivalled longest run of any other actor in the role, Tom was extremely enigmatic and entertaining as the Doctor and he heralded the show into a bring and shining new era of record breaking records and, for the first time, international success. It’s easy to argue that without the Fourth Doctor, the show would not be as popular as it is today, or even if it would have lasted as long as it has. Suffice to say, the Fourth Doctor was – and »

Doctor Who: Russell T Davies on writing a movie

18 January 2015 11:02 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Russell T Davies would love to write a Doctor Who movie - and that it "should be in cinemas immediately!"

Starting this Thursday is Russell T Davies' latest venture, the interlinked projects Cucumber, Banana and Tofu. We've now seen the first episode of each, and it's very much worth making arrangements to make sure you don't miss them.

Davies has been promoting the shows over the past couple of weeks, and on Saturday, he appeared on Graham Norton's Radio 2 programme as part of that. And whilst on the show, he was asked about a Doctor Who film.

"I think it should be in cinemas immediately", Davies replied. "It would be glorious. Imagine queueing up at the cinema to go and see a Doctor Who film".

So would he be interested in writing it? "Yes please! If we could get the lawyers and contracts flying now. You know, I »
