How’s this for a slice of fried gold? The BBC announced today that actor Nick Frost (Shaun of the Dead, The World’s End) will guest star in this year’s special Christmas episode of Doctor Who, the production of which has now begun.
“I’m so thrilled to have been asked to guest in the Doctor Who Christmas special, I’m such a fan of the show,” Frost said in a statement. “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 »

Former Doctor Who star Matt Smith has nabbed a role in Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, the film adaptation of Seth Grahame-Smith’s novel. Smith will play wealthy wife-seeker Mr. Collins opposite Lily James, who stars as Liz Bennett.
The horror-comedy— based on Grahame-Smith’s zombie-infiltrated version of the Jane Austen classic and directed by Burr Steers (17 Again)— also features Douglas Booth, Sam Riley, Jack Huston and Bella Heathcote. The film has had a rocky journey to the big screen, originally to be directed by David O. Russell—who ended up co-writing the screenplay— and cycling through a slew of directors before securing Steers, »

The face of "Doctor Who" for the last four years, as well as one of the stars of Ryan Gosling's misfire "Lost River," Matt Smith is now bringing this talents to a twisted take on a Jane Austen classic. The actor is joining Lily James, Sam Riley, Jack Huston, Bella Heathcote and Douglas Booth in "Pride And Prejudice And Zombies." Burr Steers will finally get this long developing project moving, and the story follows "Liz Bennett, [who] is pressured by her family to marry into a wealthy upper-class home and chafes at the stiff societal ways of 1800s England. Instead, she feels that she should help defend the countryside against the onslaught of a horrifying zombie plague." Smith will play Mr. Collins, and production starts next week. [THR] "Sons Of Anarchy" star Katey Sagal is joining Miles Teller, Aaron Eckhart and Ciarin Hinds in "Bleed For This." The movie tells the »

Burr Steers is behind the camera. The movie is a horror-comedy spin on Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice. The heroine, Liz Bennett (James), is pressured by her family to marry into a wealthy upper-class

It's no real secret that Steve Thompson's pair of Doctor Who stories thus far have been fairly bumpily received. In particular, The Curse Of The Black Spot seemed to run out of steam long before the end, and was arguably the weakest entry in series 6. Series 7's Journey To The Centre Of The Tardis was better, but still attracted a few grumbles.
However, he's on far firmer footing with his latest adventure, as Doctor Who continues its finest run of form since series 5 with Time Heist. As the title suggests, it involves a heist, and a bit of time work.

It was much so simpler when they’d just kill you. Once upon a time, viruses in TV dramas were straightforward slaughterers. The flu of 1975’s Survivors, for instance, cut a swathe through the UK, leaving well-spoken corpses wherever it went. Once infected, you’d cough, start sweating, and then drop dead - unless you numbered amongst the lucky immune, in which case it was time to brush up on your scouting badge survival skills and attempt to make your way in a post-plague world.
Nowadays, TV’s infected aren’t given anything like such an easy time of it. After the coughing, sweating, lurching - and often, dying - stage, more often than not, the virus transforms you. You mutate into something monstrous, one »
Danny, Danny, Danny! Forget trying to figure out who the Doctor really is, the real mystery these days is who Danny Pink is! First seen in the opening minutes of Into the Dalek and given a major spotlight in Listen, the character has quickly become a major part of Series 8. As portrayed by actor

Broadcast this past weekend, Listen was the latest episode in Doctor Who to try and established just who Capaldi’s incarnation of the iconic Time Lord truly is. From the manic beginnings with a lengthy regeneration story to a shocking ruthless streak in Into The Dalek, then some plain old silliness in Robot of Sherwood, series eight seems to be trying everything and anything. Listen now took things a step further, but with mixed results. While a chilling tale with excellent writing and direction for the most part, by the end just about everything falls to bits.
Those already writing to complain in the comments section should know that this isn’t slamming the episode as a whole, primarily the final act where the script goes completely off the rails. Yes, the bedroom scene was fantastic, yes the segments in the future were brilliantly done, but it’s hardly »

The zombie apocalypse shows no signs of slowing down, at least on the small screen. The new Syfy series “Z Nation” premiered to robust numbers on Friday, drawing 1.6 million total viewers and making the series — which hails from “Sharknado” producers The Asylum — the channel's highest-rated acquired scripted series since the 2006 premiere of “Doctor Who.” See video: DJ Qualls and Harold Perrineau Are the Nation's Only Hope in ‘Z Nation’ Teaser In the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic, the “Z Nation” premiere drew 695,000 viewers. The series, which stars Harold Perrineau (“Oz”), Tom Everett Scott (“Southland”) and DJ Qualls (“Supernatural”), takes place »

Z Nation ratings came in much, much lower than that other zombie drama’s average — as of course you would expect. But how can we compare Syfy’s new walker zombie drama Z Nation to its most obvious inspiration?
Z Nation debuted to 1.6 million for its Friday night premiere, which is fairly low wattage for a Syfy drama series. But Syfy points out this is a record premiere number for an acquired show produced by an outside part (Sharkado production company The Asylum made Z Nation). The network further noted more viewers watched Z Nation than the most recent telecasts of The Leftovers on HBO, »

Doctor Who fans know that the Daleks have been causing problems for the Doctor since (almost) the beginning. No matter what he does, whether it is outwitting them, helping them, or wiping them all out in a massive double genocide, he cannot seem to be shot of them. Just as well for us, because it’s always fun to see the Doctor interact with the hate-filled alien cyborgs. Remember the jammie dodger escape? That was good.
Last year, Orlando Arocena created a poster paying tribute to the villains, and now he has put out another very limited edition of the work, this time printed on foil. Daleks Invasion Earth 2150 Foil looks great, but unfortunately, it's already sold out. But if you like his style you can check out his store or follow him on Twitter to see more of his work.

Daleks, Daleks, Daleks… What can we say about Daleks that hasn’t already been said about them, especially with a new Dalek story just having aired? Not a whole lot, actually, so we’re going to do what every other Doctor Who fan has ever done: rank half of the 22 televised Dalek stories from good to great. Then we’ll do it all over again next week with the bad to the worst. Nothing too original there, but as usual, it’s bound to get some arguments started… though it’ll be fun to see how many readers think a story from the Worst list belongs on the Best list and vice versa.
There are a few ground rules that need to be covered, though: what we define as a ‘Dalek story’ is a story in which the main antagonists are the Daleks themselves, not a story in which »
