2003 was a rough year for comic books fans. No less than four properties were adapted for film and every last one of them was awful. It was the year of “Hulk,” “Daredevil,” “X-Men 2” (arguably the best of the bunch), and “The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen.” Before the days of Marvel’s shared universes of DC’s gritty Nolan trilogy, comic book movies were little more than pulp to churn out to the masses for a quick buck at the expense of narrative structure. Basically superhero flicks were the Transformers franchise of the early aughts. But in true comic book fashion, each and every one of those films has been retconned and replaced with something better and arguably more complex. Everything but “The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen.” Until now. According to Tracking Board, Fox is giving it the old college try to resurrect Alan Moore’s critically-acclaimed comic book series.

Robot Overlords took over our cinema screens back in March and now, according to the film’s director Jon Wright, the malignant mechanicals have their beady laser eyes on our tellies. Yes, they’re targeting a small screen spin-off. Wright announced the news at the McM London Comic Con, with word that Tony Wood (a veteran of Coronation Street among other things) will oversee the new show for Piers Tempest and Jo Bamford’s Tempo Productions, who were behind the film in the first place. “This series will really expand the canvas of the robot occupation and we are aiming to make an explosive show that the UK will be very proud of.”Though the film had Gillian Anderson, Ben Kingsley, Callan McAuliffe, James Tarpey and Ella Hunt among its cast, the show will boast a new ensemble and might also march on to TV under a different name.

Ever played a Lego video game? They’re generally a case of jumping, blasting and hitting foes, collecting small Lego discs and special pieces, unlocking achievements and characters and generally having fun. A bit like what you can see above, which is what a Lego Doctor Who video game might look like if it was made...

"It's been over a decade - and if you had asked me then if I'd be writing music in 10 years' time for Doctor Who, I'd probably have said no - but it keeps replenishing itself, and you never feel like you've done it right, you just want to do it better every time."
Murray Gold's unyielding passion for scoring Doctor Who is plain to hear when one listens to his decade's worth of work on the series - there's a determination and drive behind these pieces, a refusal to be staid or to rely on a standard bag of tricks.
Gold's remarkable music is - no surprise - the biggest draw of the Doctor Who Symphonic Spectacular, a nationwide tour which comes to the UK following a stint in Australia and will travel to New York later in the year.
Brought to life by the 100+ performers of BBC National Orchestra of Wales »
Thousands of Doctor Who fans celebrated 50+ years of the classic sci-fi show by attending the Symphonic Spectacular show at Wembley Arena on Saturday (May 23).
Former Doctor Peter Davison, who appeared on the show between 1981 and 1984 as the fifth incarnation of the character, presents the touring production, which travels to Cardiff, Birmingham, Leeds, Newcastle and Glasgow later this week.
The Daleks, the Cybermen and the Silence were amongst the terrifying villains on display during the show, which features a score written by Murray Gold who has been composing music for the series over the last 10 years.
"The Symphonic Spectacular has already proved to be a monster hit down under with thousands of fans packing into arenas across the southern »
With Last of the Cybermen, the Big Finish main Doctor Who range clocks up release#199. Written by Alan Barnes, it is part of the so-called locum doctors trilogy. The idea is capable of description in a few words — an incarnation of the Doctor ends up in an adventure with the companions of an earlier incarnation, possibly displacing the...

Futurama is both one of the funniest and one of the smartest TV shows ever made. In addition to just being consistently hilarious, quotable and often poignant, the show is packed to the brim with obscure references that only a handful of fans will probably pick up on the first time through.
A lot of these references are math or science related, as many of the show’s writers have pretty impressive academic backgrounds. The head writer and executive producer, David X. Cohen, graduated from Harvard with a B.A. in physics. He also has a degree in computer science from the University of California, Berkeley. Another one of the show’s writers, Ken Keeler, graduated from Harvard with a PhD in applied mathematics. In fact, Keeler famously invented his own mathematical theorem for the Season 7 episode The Prisoner of Benda.

The world of Doctor Who comics underwent a major change last year with Titan taking over the licence to produce new adventures featuring the Doctor in strip form.

London — Buccaneer Media, the London-based production company created by TV drama producer Tony Wood, has signed a deal to create a spinoff TV series based on the U.K. independent sci-fi adventure movie “Robot Overlords.”
The pact was signed with Piers Tempest and Jo Bamford’s Tempo Prods., which produced the movie. The agreement will see Buccaneer create a TV series set in a parallel universe to the movie, which features a group of survivors following the invasion of Earth by alien robots. Jon Wright, the movie’s director, announced the adaptation at a press conference at the McM London Comic Con event on Friday.
“This series will really expand the canvas of the robot occupation, and we are aiming to make an explosive show that the U.K. will be very proud of. Stay in your homes!” said Tempest, producer of the “Robot Overlords” movie.
Wood has overseen both scripted and unscripted TV shows, »

The youtube channel The Hillywood Show has made a name for itself by recontextualising popular songs to double as homages to well-known tv shows, with costumes and sets to match, along with dances. They have previously done parodies of Doctor Who and The Walking Dead, repurposing “The Time Warp” and “Another One bites the Dust” respectively.
For their latest video, the duo behind the channel took on the CW series Supernatural, setting the storyline of the show’s just-ended tenth season to Taylor Swift’s “Shake It Off”. In addition to getting a Chevy Impala much like the one driven in the series, the show tapped Osric Chau, who played Kevin Tran on the series and has appeared on previous Hillywood Show videos, to play Sam Winchester. In addition, the video managed to snag Rob Benedict, who played Chuck Shurley on Supernatural, to take on the role of Cain, with »

If you’ve played the first two episodes of Life is Strange you’ll already know that it wears its geek crown proudly, to hipster levels of whimsy. Now that the third episode Chaos Theory has been released we have hit the episode where the game has revealed its ace card and truly become something special, to mind-blowing proportions.
It is hard not to spoil the plot to the previous episode, and this one by mentioning too much but by giving just the basic plot that should be safe enough. Previously we’ve learnt of Max’s ability to rewind time and that she has returned to her home town of Arcadia Bay reconnecting with her childhood friend Chloe in a bid to discover what has happened to a missing girl.
In Chaos Theory the episode takes us into the recognisable trend of being an investigation episode bombarding us with »

My editor suggested, if I was having trouble coming up with ideas about what to write, that I note that the new CBS prime-time show, Supergirl, will air at eight o’clock Eastern time on Mondays when it starts this fall… up against Gotham on Fox.
The assumption, when he mentioned this to me last week, was that Supergirl would have trouble against the adventures of Bruce Wayne as a boy, since the Batman character has a known success across several media for more than fifty years. Kara Zor-El, on the other hand, starred in one lousy movie and guested on a season of Smallville.
“Well,” you say (you being my rhetorical projection), “that’s really irrelevant, because movies are different from television.” This is true.
“And anyway, »

For some, the mention of Big Finish only brings to mind their excellent Doctor Who lines. To a degree, that’s fair. After all, it is their most popular intellectual property.
