The Village review still bleak but now with jazz

11 August 2014 12:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Peter Moffat's grand Peak District epic brings new hope and ideas as it enters the 1920s

Holidays are coming to an end, the weather's breaking, days are getting shorter. What we need is some cheery Sunday-evening entertainment to ease our passage into autumn. What we get is the return of The Village (BBC1).

So what kind of misery is on the menu now? Afterbirth, that's what, all over the floor, and what appears to be a dead calf. It's typical of The Village: a birth to open the new season must be a still one. John Middleton (John Simm) is on his hands and knees, massaging and blowing, desperately trying to revive the unfortunate animal. Presumably the Middletons' survival depended on the calf and its death will tip them over the edge, send them plummeting to their own

Doctor Who: Deep Breath premiere Q&A

8 August 2014 4:57 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Peter Capaldi, Jenna Coleman and Steven Moffat talk accents, flirting, Capaldi’s first day on the Tardis and more…

Read our entirely spoiler-free review of Deep Breath, here.

Not one but two posh UK premieres happened yesterday for Deep Breath, the Doctor Who series eight opener, the first in Cardiff and the second in London.

After each screening, Peter Capaldi, Jenna Coleman and Steven Moffat came out to peals of applause to talk about the episode (we’ve squirrelled those bits away until after the BBC One broadcast) the new Doctor, his relationship with Clara, and more. Amongst other things, read about Capaldi's audition for the role, first experience of stepping inside the Tardis, and, if he could, what he would tell his eight-year-old Doctor Who-fan self...

Steven Moffat says no to bringing back the Master; no plans for 10th anniversary special

8 August 2014 3:07 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Is the Master returning to Doctor Who anytime soon? No, says Steven Moffat, nor are they planning a 10th anniversary special...

The Doctor lies. This we know. Steven Moffat, in public, sometimes lies too. This we also know. 

How far then, should we believe Moffat when he categorically states that not only will be not be bringing the Master back, but there are also no plans for a special episode to celebrate Doctor Who's tenth year since its 2005 revival? 

Here's what the Who showrunner said on both matters at yesterday's Deep Breath Cardiff and London premiere Q&As:

Will the Master be coming back anytime soon?

Steven Moffat: "[Abruptly] No. [Laughter] I accidentally just said the truth! No, not really. I think the story’s sort of done. I thought what Russell [T. Davies] did with that was so brilliant, because I did think it was over. Once you’d lost Roger Delgado who was so brilliant, »

Intruders

BBC America has unveiled an extended trailer for its new sci-fi series "Intruders" starring John Simm, Mira Sorvino, Robert Forester and James Frain. Almost David Lynch-ian in its flat out cryptic nature and obtuseness, it kind of looks like an "Invasion of the Body Snatchers" update.

Press Tour: BBC America's 'Intruders' offers confusion, promises answers

9 July 2014 8:12 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

There's no point in lying: The pilot for BBC America's "Intruders" makes almost no sense to me.  It's 45 minutes of enticing teasing, jumping around from location to location as characters we've barely met commit suicide or flee from other characters we've never met, some holding cards embossed with the number "9." There are enigmatic declarations about characters not being who they appear to be or not being who once they were. There's a preternaturally wise -- and therefore terrifying -- child (Millie Brown's Madison). There's an Oscar winning actress (Mira Sorvino), who you assume was lured by character details beyond the pilot. There are multiple familiar and well-regarded British actors (James Frain and John Simm) possibly playing American and therefore seeming suspicious. If you enjoy the teasing, you'll be champing at the bit waiting for a second episode to maybe or maybe not get to the business of explaining things. »

Our Top 5 Picks on Who Could Play the Master on Doctor Who

6 July 2014 6:51 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Ever since Former Doctor Who Star Sylvester McCoy revealed that he had some inside information on the upcoming season 8 episodes of the popular BBC series--which will feature Peter Capaldi stepping into the iconic role of the heroic Time Lord—there has been speculation that the Doctor’s greatest rival, the Master, will be back. If he does return, who should play him?

Back in March,  Sylvester Mc Coy--who portrayed the enigmatic seventh Doctor in the classic Doctor Who series—gave an interview with Zap2it at the Newcastle Film and Comic Convention, where he reported that he had inside information on the return of the Doctor’s arch rival, the Master. According to McCoy, the newest incarnation of the Master will be “very, very  scary”.  Furthermore, there is a picture from this season of a shrunken Tardis (see below) and we all know that in the classic series, the Master loved to shrink things. »
