Michael Bay responds to reports of Nazi imagery in ‘Transformers: The Last Knight’

10 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

All signs point to Transformers: The Last Knight being absolutely bonkers. And that's saying something for a Michael Bay Transformers movie. But backlash over Nazi imagery used in a UK shoot has prompted the director to respond. The fifth installment of the franchise is looking like a it will include a time-travel adventure. While Mark Wahlberg, Josh Duhamel, Tyrese Gibson, and Stanley Tucci are set to return, The Last Knight is also said to include King Arthur and Merlin and now...Nazis and Hitler. The Sun was first to report on the film's use of UK's Blenheim Palace covered with Nazi imagery. Blenheim was where Sir Winston Churchill, Prime Minister during World War II, was born. "Actors dressed as storm troopers from the Fuhrer’s feared SS strutted up the entrance steps," The Sun wrote. "Close by were a Panzer tank, a German anti-aircraft gun, Mercedes staff cars and ammo boxes stamped with eagle emblems. »

Wizard Before Wizard Magazine – Prototype Before the Magic

21 September 2016 8:10 AM, PDT | Boomtron | See recent Boomtron news »

Wizard Magazine is a publication that is now often talked about in a negative context by most of the same people who didn’t like the half decade or so that Wizard reflected and even influenced the comic book medium and culture, not to mention people who never read the magazine in its prime who echo anything negative because internet

I don’t really want to get into that discussion, though I did touch on it when I recently revisited Spawn, and instead just want to highlight a recent acquisition.

Growing up Wizard was one of my handful of automatic buys. If you couldn’t afford a comic or a lot of them, Wizard was just a great bet to add and indulge in everything going on and coming in mainstream comics. In later years the quality of magazine would fall because of a combination of a lack of  talent »

The comedian, actor and News Quiz host discussed bias at the BBC, his well-loved children’s television show, and the geography of Mozambique

2.19pm BST

Thanks very much for your questions. I think it's good that people throw in the odd snarky one - it makes it a bit more like real conversation! I'm sorry that I'm not Doctor Who or someone, but you know, there we are. Back to work everybody!

Gretsch83 asks:

You’re a fellow Edinburgh University alumnus of Gordon Brown, Pippa Middleton and Julius Nyerere. Out of these three, who would you say you are most similar to and why?

I've always thought of myself of a cross between Gordon Brown and Pippa Middleton, for reasons that are, I hope, extremely obvious.

Twin Peaks to Cracker: your favourite TV episodes of all time

21 September 2016 4:39 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

With seminal moments in everything from ER to Boys from the Blackstuff, our readers nominate their top hours of television drama ever – and most of it was even made before the year 2000

The Game of Thrones episode Battle of the Bastards has won a record seven Emmys, which prompted a Guardian article on six of the best hours of TV drama ever made.

Some of you agreed; quite a lot of you, not so much. Many of you couldn’t even agree on the best episodes of the series listed.

Related: What was the best hour of television ever?

I'm desperate father.

Call me Dan.

I'm Desperate Dan.

Doctor Who's own Heaven Sent - Peter Capaldi's masterful one-hander. Simply sublime.

The last episode of Twin Peaks. Bold, bewildering, brutal, beautiful. Nothing like it before or since.

As I once said, only David Lynch would have his protagonist walk »

Lego Dimensions Meet That Hero: Supergirl, E.T. and Doctor Who

14 September 2016 7:17 AM, PDT | TheHDRoom | See recent TheHDRoom news »

Ready for another Lego Dimensions Meet-Up video?  This second one released features two characters who share a similar origin story, cast across space and taken in by a foster family on earth.

They are none other than E.T. and Supergirl, two new characters joining the Lego Dimensions 2016 lineup. While they share similarities in their origins and even their ability to fly, one of them is much harder to obtain than the other.

The only way to acquire the physical Supergirl figure for Lego Dimensions is by purchasing the 2016 version of the Lego Dimensions Starter Pack for PS4. If you already have Lego Dimensions then you're out of luck. The same holds true if you don't have a PlayStation 4.

Watch the Lego Dimensions Meet That Hero video starring E.T, Supergirl and featuring a cameo by Doctor Who below. I've also included the first video in this series as well. »

This Lego Red Dwarf set needs a bit more help

Simon Brew Sep 8, 2016

Help make the Red Dwarf Lego set a reality...

Bob Turner is a man on a mission. That mission? To get a Lego Red Dwarf set through the Lego ideas system. And he needs your help.

The idea of Lego Ideas – which helped spawn the newly-released Doctor Who Lego set, amongst many others – is that people submit ideas for sets, and if enough interest is generated, they go up for proper consideration. Not everything that generates sufficient interest makes it to stores (there are copyright issues that often get in the way, for a start). Yet a growing number do.

Already, Bob Turner has attracted 6620 supporters, but he needs to get to the 10,000 level.

What does he need, then? Just a tap of the support button from you on the Lego Ideas site. You have to sign up to the site first, but if you do, and give the requisite support, »

Lost 'Doctor Who' Dalek episode will live on in freshly-animated glory

7 September 2016 4:37 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Lost Doctor Who episodes (and other TV) are sadly not an uncommon occurrence. In the early days of the 50-year-old sci-fi series, the BBC would air episodes and then record over them to save space or otherwise reuse the tapes. It hurts just typing that but thankfully some previously lost episodes have been made new again thanks to a lot of hard work and animation. Back in 2013, the BBC Worldwide announced master tapes of Doctor Who episodes from the 1960s were found in Nigeria, Africa. The episodes were sent there for local transmissions and tracked down with some effort. It was exciting news at the time but 97 stories were still missing or incomplete. This new animation features the six-part "The Power of the Daleks" story, which is still missing. "No complete film recordings of 'The Power of the Daleks' are known to have survived," the BBC explains of their most recent news, »

‘Doctor Who’: BBC Recreates Exterminated 1966 Daleks Storyline as Animated Episodes

7 September 2016 3:40 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

BBC Worldwide, the U.K. broadcaster’s sales arm, has commissioned an animated remake of “The Power of the Daleks,” a 1966 six-part storyline from sci-fiction show “Doctor Who,” which had been exterminated by callous technocrats.

No complete film recordings of the original live-action episodes from “The Power of the Daleks” are known to have survived. The master negatives were destroyed in an archive purge in 1974.

The new animated six-episode drama, in which the Daleks and the second Doctor, played by Patrick Troughton, battle on the planet Vulcan, will appear Nov. 5 on the network’s retail website, BBC Store — 50 years to the minute after its one and only showing on the BBC. There will also be a special screening for fans that afternoon at the British Film Institute.

The new black-and-white animation is based on audio recordings of the show, using the original cast, surviving photographs and film clips.

The six half-hour episodes feature the regeneration, or »

7 September 2016 2:47 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The entire serial had been lost, with the master tapes erased in the 1960s, and the remaining prints destroyed in 1974.

“The Power of the Daleks animation is the most ambitious Doctor Who archive restoration ever attempted and we’re all very honoured to be a part of such a an exciting project,” said Charles Norton, who will be directing the project. »
