The BBC are certainly spoiling us with Series 8 of Doctor Who, and today we can share with you the trailer above and a stunning collection of images from Kill The Moon! This week’s episode sees the Doctor and Clara finding themselves on the moon… with spiders! If all of that doesn’t excite you, there’s

Almost every Doctor Who writer has a certain thumbprint that they tend to leave on the stories they write. Steven Moffat has mind-melting time paradoxes, Classic Who scribe Robert Holmes had unsubtle political commentary, and Gareth Roberts has the Doctor trying to blend in with modern day humans; with The Caretaker being his third episode in a row to use this plot device.
But that’s not necessarily a bad thing since he tends to do it very well. Despite the mass of similarities to The Lodger (2010) and Closing Time (2011), The Caretaker manages to carve its own little niche as a relaxed comedic episode thanks largely to the completely different character dynamics at play this time around.
The real thing that the episode has going for it is the humour. It’s not the out there gag-a-minute humour of Robot Of Sherwood but it’s still a very »

More frightening than a barrage of green laser blasts, more eerie than a spillage in Geography class, and more menacing than a sinister puddle, it’s the Kasterborous News Blast! This week’s trip to the Promised Land includes a chance to buy the clothes right off of Clara’s back, a Radiophonic classroom of sound, a slew

The growing phenomena of event cinema took another step forward over the weekend, as a special performance of Billy Elliot The Musical was broadcast live to cinemas (both in the UK and abroad) from the stage of the Palace Theatre in London.
Reuniting the three people who originated the role of Billy Elliot on the stage - Liam Mower, James Lomas and George Maguire - amongst a cast of past Billys, what's of particular note is just how much business the performance did in cinemas. For early figures suggest that Billy Elliot The Musical Live topped the UK box office over the weekend, with a take of £1.9m. Second placed The Equalizer grossed £1.89m.
Billy Elliot has thus enjoyed the biggest opening for any event cinema presentation thus far (beating even Doctor Who »
With the help of "Frozen" characters coming onboard, the fourth season premiere of ABC's fantasy drama "Once Upon a Time" hit a two year high with 9.3 million viewers and a 3.4 rating - up 30% in last year's Live+Same Day results.
The results weren't so pleasant for ABC's other shows - "Resurrection" fell from a 3.8 for its mid-season premiere to a 2.2 for its second season bow. The fourth season of "Revenge" similarly plummeted with a 1.4 rating - down from 2.4 for last season's premiere. [Source: The Live Feed]

AMC Networks is closing in on a deal to acquire a sizable stake in BBC America for about $200 million.
Deal is expected to come together by the end of October. AMC Networks is believed to be grabbing just under 50% of the channel that is the Beeb’s namesake outpost in the U.S.
A rep for AMC Networks declined to comment.
Word of the deal coming to a head was first reported Monday by Bloomberg News. News of the talks first surfaced in July.
The equity stake in BBC America would further AMC Networks’ effort to diversify its operations. Early this year, the company made a big move on the international front with its $1 billion acquisition of the U.K.’s Chellomedia entertainment »

Another new episode of Doctor Who Series 8 has come and gone, perhaps leaving as many questions as it brought answers. This week, the Doctor went undercover at Coal Hill School as the new caretaker. Did he succeed at his mission and just how much trouble did he cause for Clara and her burgeoning relationship

In the mood for some bizarre but brilliant casting news? Good. Because Mad Men star Jon Hamm is teaming up with Charlie Brooker for Channel 4’s Black Mirror Christmas Special. And if your brain wasn’t already boggled enough, it transpires Hamm is a fan of the skewed anthology series, which so far has brought us a sexual dilemma for the Prime Minister involving a barnyard animal and Hayley Atwell getting hooked on a dead boyfriend. The actor has issued the following statement:
I am beyond thrilled to be a part of the Black Mirror Christmas Special. I have been a massive fan of the show since its inception… (its) dark humour and intelligent observation of our society and values hooked me deeply as a viewer and I’m honoured that Charlie and the rest of the creative team have asked me to participate in wishing everyone a very Merry Christmas. »

Warning! Spoilers: This post contains spoilers and speculation for the Doctor Who series eight episode “The Caretaker”.
The Doctor is facing a truth inconvenient to his ego. Every person is a crowd. Who we are perceived as depends on how we are observed. Staring out of our deceptive faces is a multitude of curious eyes. We are forged of elements birthed in the heart of a star, crafted of chaos, combined into a single sentient entity. Labeling a person as one thing is like allowing a stopped clock to dictate a life. It is accurate twice a day. The rest of the time it is something different, no matter what it is called.
“The Caretaker” is a breezy construct of people talking past each other. While it may be thin on plot it is rich in the exploration of relationship dynamics. It is built on the lies we tell »

As a seven years old boy, I became transfixed with Doctor Who and the rolling force of nature that was its lead actor at the time, Tom Baker. Several years of his tenure had passed and in many respects, the stories of this benevolent alien had moved away from its glory years. I don’t actually

This is the story of a woman who has worked as an actress for many, many years wandering into the Tardis set in Cardiff one September morning (during shooting of the Christmas special!) and apparently being swept off he feet by the star of Doctor Who, Peter Capaldi.

BBC's celebrity dance show Strictly Come Dancing beat out ITV music competition The X Factor, with Simon Cowell among the judges, to become Friday's and Saturday's most-watched show in Britain. But X Factor on Saturday once again came in well ahead of BBC's Doctor Who in the shows' first direct clash after the sci-fi hit's move to a later time slot. The return of Cowell had boosted the season launch ratings for X Factor a few weeks ago, and Cowell has said his goal was to beat Strictly, known in the U.S. as Dancing With the Stars,

When did it get you? Was the Cybermen bursting out of hibernation in The Tomb of the Cybermen? Was it the Auton invasion in Spearhead from Space? Or was it the gas-masked child from The Empty Child? Perhaps it was the stunning trailer for Kill the Moon. You’ve probably already said it; it probably already

Well, here we are. At the end of the line. It’s hard to believe this is the last episode until April! What am I going do? The temptation to read the book to find out what’s going to happen will be strong, but I will overcome! Last week we left Claire in a state of internal tug-of-war between her new husband Jamie and her first husband Frank. After an amazing night of wine-muddled honeymoon sex, the harsh light of day crashed in to remind her — and us — that she’s been sidetracked from her mission. As we gear up for a Seven Month break (whyyyyyyyyyy?), we’re going to see “Both Sides Now.” ********** A lone black phone is ringing. But this is no flashback. We’re in real time, with Frank, who has been desperately searching for his missing wife. From what I’ve gleaned in the comments, »

Now this is much more like it. "The Caretaker" is a considered and nuanced episode of Doctor Who that still manages to be great fun. It handles the complex relationships and emotions that are driving the show rather deftly, and it's delightfully light on its feet as it dances between the more playful and more serious tones that are being put forward in Series 8.The plot finds the Doctor going undercover, as the titular caretaker, at Clara's school after we see a montage of their recent adventures and how they've interfered with her blossoming new romance (some of these adventures sound fun, but they're probably the sort of thing that wouldn't sustain an episode). The scenario is rather perfect for comedic shenanigans because Clara's trying...
