Amazon Wants All of the BBC's Shows To Itself

52 minutes ago | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

The streaming wars continue. As television viewing moves increasingly to digital platforms, Amazon is aggressively stepping up its game to defeat competitors. Starting February 15, Doctor Who, along with the majority of BBC programming will disappear from Amazon Prime. The Verge reports that the problem was exclusivity: Amazon didn't want competitors like Netflix to carry the shows at the same time. So far, Amazon's contracts haven't required exclusivity, which is why you can watch Doctor Who on both Prime and Netflix. Amazon has been pursuing this as a long-term strategy, closing exclusivity deals on critical darlings like Hannibal and The Americans. It appears to be working: Membership grew over 53% last year. It's an all-or-nothing relationship with Amazon. »

Peter Davison says he “has trouble with the idea of a female Doctor”

3 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It seems every time the search is on for a new lead in Doctor Who, the question is raised about whether the BBC could introduce a female Doctor into the long-running sci-fi series. So far it hasn’t happened, and if it was down to the Fifth Doctor Peter Davison, it won’t ever happen either, as he’s revealed that he’s against the idea…

“I speak now as a fan who grew up watching it,” Davison tells ABC Australia. “I have trouble with the idea of a female Doctor, only because I reckon if you’re born on Gallifrey a man, you’re probably a male Time Lord. It seems to me if you reverse that, if you have an uncertain, fallible female Doctor with a really strong male companion, you’ve got more of a stereotype than anything else.”

15 Best Companions In Doctor Who History

31 January 2015 7:54 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

BBC

The Doctor’s companions are quite a mixed bag, really. Some are infuriating, others brilliant. They have all affected (and tormented) the Doctor in one way or another over the years. Having somewhere in the region of 40 pass through the Tardis doors over the last five decades, picking out the cream of the crop is not an easy job. And it is probably a foolhardy soul who would brave the renowned Doctor Who fandom, the Whovians, to produce a list like this.

It isn’t a definitive list. That would be impossible. Still, it is an interesting exercise. One thing that is clear is that the well worn stereotype of the Doctor’s Companion as a short skirted, hapless girl who can do nothing but get into trouble and scream is unfounded. Yes, some do wear short skirts, and several do indeed scream, but they are in fact incredibly strong women. »

Why Neil Gaiman's Neverwhere could be the next Doctor Who

31 January 2015 1:00 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Following the news that another hopeful heir apparent to the Saturday night Doctor Who slot - fantasy series Atlantis - has bitten the dust, what should the BBC should try next?

The return of Saturday night family adventure

Not so very long ago, the idea of an early evening adventure show on BBC One - on Saturday night no less - that the whole family would happily sit down to enjoy was seen as impossible. That time had passed, the audience was now too fragmented, there's just no way you could get people from eight to 89 to all sit together and watch the same narrative show.

Then, the BBC took a risk. With big swingers like writer Russell T Davies and then-bbc drama commissioner Jane Tranter fighting its corner, that old, dead TV legend Doctor Who lurched back into life... and it worked. People of all ages tuned in, the viewing figures stacked up, »

The Definitive Movies of 1995

30 January 2015 8:01 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

40. Empire Records

Directed by: Allan Moyle

Ah, the coming-of-age story. There was no sub-genre more hijacked for a quick buck in the 1990′s. In between the good ones (“Dazed and Confused,” “Boyz in the Hood”), the cheesy ones (“She’s All That,” “She Drives Me Crazy”), and the under-appreciated ones (“The Man in the Moon,” “Angus”), there were the middling ones that, if anything, boasted a cast that would go on to bigger, better things. Enter “Empire Records,” which is not only a coming-of-age story, but one that takes place at a record store, no less. Talk about the double dip. The entire film takes place over the course of one day, focusing on the employees, played by Anthony Lapaglia, Ethan Embry, Renee Zellweger, Rory Cochrane, and Liv Tyler. The independent record store is in Delaware – the hot spot of American music – and sees Joe (Lapaglia) allowing night manager Lucas »

Molly Jackson: Choosing Everything

30 January 2015 10:00 AM, PST | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

I spend way too much time on social media. I’m often lurking in the background, checking out what weird Internet gems people have found or created. Over the past couple of weeks, I’ve seen this fandom day meme pop up throughout my social media feeds.

Based on the date chosen, it is possibly meant as an early April Fools’ joke but it still brought something to light. In every posting I saw of this meme, I saw fans stating they apparently needed to wear a rainbow of fandoms. In some cases, it seemed like people were asking permission just to show support for multiple fandoms. (The other complaint being they left out a ton of groups.)

This just boggles my mind. Who needs to choose one fandom?! Most geeks can fit in more than one. I have attended Firefly meetups, where more often than not everyone is talking »

Doctor Who Regenerations: Ranked From Worst To Best

30 January 2015 9:14 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

BBC

For Doctor Who fans, nothing is quite so bittersweet as a regeneration. Not only do you have to say goodbye to one Doctor, a man you’ve come to know and love over the course of his adventures, but you also have to say hello to a strange new face that you’re somehow not quite sure of.

The Doctor’s habit of changing is one of the reasons fans love the show – a regeneration can often give the story a much needed shot in the arm and make for some interesting onscreen conflict. While this may be the case, fans are often worried that the change will be a negative one and that the new Doctor will never be your Doctor.

However, one thing that can ease this transition for fans is if the outbound Doctor leaves in a scene which is in someway moving or memorable. The »

Farewell Atlantis – what would you like to watch in the Doctor Who slot?

30 January 2015 4:15 AM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Atlantis has been cancelled, leaving a looming science-fiction/fantasy/period romp-shaped hole in the BBC’s Saturday evening schedules. What could they do to fill it?

Goodbye, Atlantis, we hardly knew ye. Once this second series comes to a close, the boisterous if unlovably featherweight action-fantasy will be no more,​ thanks to the BBC’s “difficult” decision to send it to the knacker’s yard of expensive, Saturday-night Doctor-Who alternatives. There it will join Merlin, which managed a respectable five series, and Robin Hood, which limped forlornly to three. And, like them, there it will be forgotten, alongside the inevitably shortlived Twitter campaign to see it renewed on Amazon, Ripper Street-style​.

The issue of what to with the Doctor Who slot when Doctor Who isn’t on is a persistent stone in the shoe of the BBC. Since the Doctor’s rebirth in 2005, the corporation has dredged folklore for popular myths and legends, »

Tweeks: Fangirl Termonology Guide #1: Shipping

29 January 2015 10:00 AM, PST | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

Editor’s Note: The Tweeks went on a lovely vacation this week and were unable to have a video ready. So, rather than let them off the hook and fully enjoy their vacay, I asked them to write a little something. And boy am I glad I did! ~Adriane Nash

Sometimes it’s hard to explain to your parents or other assorted adults what exactly you are FanGirl-ing/FanBoy-ing on about if they don’t understand the language. We found that out first hand when our dad thought “Shipping” had something to do with space ships.  Oh no, Dad.  Really?  This week we hope to start bridging the generation gap by sailing our Ships over it.

Shipping is when you take two characters from a fandom who you think would work well together and put them together.  Shipping is basically “relationshipping,” but the characters you ship don’t have to »

Listen to Doctor Who's William Hartnell's Desert Island Discs

29 January 2015 7:13 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

A 16-minute excerpt of William Hartnell's Desert Island Discs has been found and put online.

The actor played the first incarnation of The Doctor in Doctor Who from 1963 to 1966 and he recorded his spot on what was then Roy Plomley's show on Monday, August 23, 1965.

"This is the only extract the BBC has of this edition of Desert Island Discs and begins with the castaway's first choice of music," notes current Kirsty Young at the start of the recording.

Hartnell's favourite piece of music is 'The Spring Song from A King in New York' by Charlie Chaplin.

His top book is English Social History by G M Trevelyan and his luxury is cigarettes.

During the interview Hartnell talks about preferring horses to the theatre and running away from school at an early age with the hope of becoming a jockey. »

Doctor Who: 10 Things To Do While You’re Waiting For The New Series

29 January 2015 1:23 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

BBC

The Doctor will see you now… well, in 7 to 8 months. Filming for the brand new series is currently underway in Cardiff but unfortunately it will be a little (Ok… a lot) while yet until viewers actually get to see it. Series 9 is scheduled to grace our screens in the autumn which begs the formidable question, what the hell are its fans supposed to do in the meantime!?

If the Doctor Who withdrawal symptoms have already kicked in after our hero’s most recent escapade in Last Christmas, you’ll be pleased to hear that WhoCulture has come up with a useful list of things to do while you’re waiting for his already long overdue return.

The thought of having to wait so long for Series 9 is overwhelming at best but hopefully this list will reassure you that there’s plenty to keep our Whovian minds occupied until the »
