An intense modern iteration of the titular ocean predator, which debuted in legendary British comic (and forerunner to 2000Ad) Action #1. Initially inspired by the success of the film, Jaws, Hook Jaw was one of many Action strips so violent it was banned from the shelves upon release – but now Hook Jaw is back in a new mini series thanks the folks at Titan Comics!
The debut issue of this five issue mini-series is written by comics fire-cracker Si Spurrier (Cry Havoc, Weavers, Doctor Who, Numbercruncher) and illustrated by rising star Conor Boyle, with colors by Giulia Brusco and edited by legendary British comics editor and marine life expert artist, Steve White.
In the troubled waters off Somalia, a rag-tag group of marine scientists studying a pack of female great white sharks find themselves caught in a conflict between pirates and the might of the Us Navy. But why is the »

Sachs’ career stretched across 60 years and more than 100 roles in British TV, radio, and film, including appearances on such English mainstays as Coronation Street, EastEnders, Are You Being Served? and Doctor Who. But he was best known as Manuel, the good-hearted fool manning the kitchen of the Fawlty Towers hotel, constantly driving his employer, Cleese’s Basil Fawlty, into fits of apoplexy with his well-intentioned bumbling. Not every aspect of Manuel’s character or treatment has stood the test of time—the show often acted as though his Spanish accent was a joke in of itself, and the frequent violence against him sometimes crossed the line from darkly comic to actively abusive. (Reportedly, Sachs was wounded at ...

The CW’s #DCWeek crossover event wrapped up on Thursday night’s Legends of Tomorrow with a victorious celebration for the costumed crimefighters — but the Dominators aren’t gone for good.

Sachs died Nov. 23 after a four-year battle with dementia, according to his wife Melody, and was buried on Thursday. The Daily Mail first reported the news.
Sachs starred alongside John Cleese on Towers, playing the bumbling Spanish waiter Manuel at a quaint English hotel owned by Cleese’s Basil Fawlty. Towers only ran for a dozen episodes in 1975 and 1979, but still stands as one of the most beloved comedies in British TV history.

The actor died Nov. 23, according to several British reports. His wife Melody told the Daily Mail that Sachs was diagnosed with dementia and died in a private-care home after a four-year battle with the disease.
Aside from acting opposite John Cleese on the BBC comedy (Cleese created the series with his wife, Connie Booth), Sachs also appeared on Doctor Who, The History of Mr. Polly and Radio 4’s Jeeves and Wooster.

How each Doctor responds to the Daleks for the first time reveals something about them...
Pearl Mackie was announced as the new companion for Doctor Who Series 10 back in April, with a specially filmed clip broadcast during Match Of The Day's Fa Cup semi-final. Aside from befuddling Gary Lineker, the purpose of a trailer like this, as opposed to a press release or a lavish announcement programme, is to show a character in action, and there was really no better way to define the character of Bill Potts than to show how she acted in the face of the Daleks.

The Daleks are almost as old as the show itself and different Doctors respond to them in different ways. In some eras, Dalek stories have been an early fixture of a new Doctor’s run, »
The series explores the tensions between African-American citizens and Caucasian cops in Jersey City after a teenage African-American boy is critically injured by an officer. King will play the victim’s mother, a devout churchgoer who is shaken to her core by the incident.
King is also slated to return to American Crime for Season 3.

Written by Robbie Morrison | Art by Mariano Laclaustra | Published by Titan Comics
Last issue saw the arrival of Robbie Morrison on the book, and boy did he come flying out of the creative gates. Likewise for new artist Mariano Laclaustra. They threw us back in time to 1695 France, where Gothic shenanigans aplenty unfolded. We had a seemingly immortal possessed Cardinal Richelieu with new soul sucking powers, some similarly possessed followers, an absent French King, and the arrival of an unconventional but tremendous fun new companion (at least for now) in the shape of the feisty, cussing Julie D’Aubigny, also known as Mademoiselle Maupin.
We start this issue with Richelieu using some of his powers to animate stone gargoyles to hunt down The Doctor and Julie, though for now our science and sorcery pairing are in the Tardis trying to figure out what is going on. The Doctor had managed »

It's time for The Flash part of the massive heroes vs aliens CW superhero TV crossover, appropriately known as Invasion!
This review contains spoilers.
It's tough to review these crossover episodes every year. There are so many moving parts to get the casts of two or three, let alone four shows together, right in the middle of their seasons, while they're all right in the thick of their own storylines that it's bound to cause problems. And The Flash's chapter Invasion! definitely shows some signs of that.
But seriously. Who cares, right? The only way to judge an hour of TV like this one is on how it makes you feel, and in my case, to the surprise of absolutely nobody reading this, »

The work of Delia Derbyshire has been deeply influential to electronic musicians and fans for decades, but the last 10 years in particular have seen a surge of interest bring a lot more about her to light; 2016 alone produced a rerelease of BBC Radiophonic Workshop 21 (this time with credits) and a record of never-heard work. Recently I was reminded to check out 2009’s The Delian Mode, a short (25-minute) but insightful look into Derbyshire’s unconventional life and mind. The film itself mimics her experimental spirit with a collage of sound and images illuminating the labored, mathematical process behind some of her visionary sound treatments, most famously the original Doctor Who theme. It’s easy enough to appreciate Derbyshire’s artistry just by listening, but seeing her pre-synthesizer process broken down—in a modern world of wild sounds just a click or touch away ...

With some of the Who titles hitting it out of the park right now, one or two of the other Who titles are struggling a little to keep up. The Tenth Doctor’s book springs to mind, as does this Ninth Doctor title. They are not bad in the sense they lack any quality, but they lack some of the inspiration and general oomph of the other books. That being said, last issue was pretty entertaining, and I am certainly a sucker for anything featuring Unit circa early 1980′s. As you will recall, the Tardis pitched up in early 80′s Britain to find Unit under attack by monsters, and the key seemingly a certain Mr. Yaxley. Captain Jack paid a visit to Mr. Yaxley’s house, only to come face to face with an impressively huge monster…

Take a peek behind the scenes of 1997's Starship Troopers, with a collection of rare images from the shoot...
There’s nothing like news of a movie remake to make us savour an already much-loved original. And with plans afoot for a new take on Robert Heinlein’s Starship Troopers, it had us digging out our Blu-ray of Paul Verhoeven’s terrific 1997 movie.

The first two issues of this series have had me dribbling with excitement and nostalgia. Yes, not the most edifying sight you’ll ever imagine, but true. Paul Cornell has somehow managed to bottle the feel and look of not only the Jon Pertwee Third Doctor himself, but of the era, of the tone of the type of adventures The Doctor was experiencing back in those heady days. Being honest, the actual substance of the last two issues has been less important than capturing that authenticity, putting the reader back in that time and space.
For those that came in late, all you need to know is that The Doctor has been trying to help Unit fight off an alien invasion, an invasion of metal based life forms that can make themselves into various bigger objects and weapons. »

On this very day, 53 years ago, British TV viewers were introduced to a rogue Time Lord who liked to get timey wimey inside his spaceship disguised as a blue police box and a cultural institution was born. Over 800 episodes, 12 incarnations of its main character, and and one massive 16-year gap in production later, Doctor Who remains a global phenomenon. In honor of the momentous occasion, we thought we'd turn our attention to that other crucial element of the long-running series: The companion. The Doctor never travels alone, instead bringing one lucky human (or sometimes more) along in the Tardis to explore all of time and space alongside him. Some have been exceptional, becoming icons in their own right, while »
The Thunderbirds are back.
Season Two of the revived Amazon’s Thunderbirds Are Go continues the adventures of the family of heroes, International Rescue. The series highlights the five brave Tracy brothers and their covert operative Kayo and how they pilot their remarkable, cutting-edge Thunderbird vehicles to perform near-impossible rescue mission, from the depths of the oceans to the highest reaches of space.
Produced by ITV Studios and Pukeko Pictures with Weta Workshop, the series is made with a mixture of CGI animation and live-action model sets—paying tribute to the old fans of the shows and attracting a new generation to the Thunderbirds.
Lrm had a phone interview earlier this month with voice actor David Graham, who is reprising his role as Agent Parker from the original series. We had an extensive talk over the show—both the original and the new show. It was also fun to reminisce »
