It's time to face the music. Possibly unable to bear saying "Cheryl Fernandez-Versini" one more time, Peter Dickson - the voice of X Factor itself - has announced that he's decided to "check out and cut loose". Oh well, at least we'll always have Rachel Adedeji.
But the paradox is that while Peter Dickson is irreplaceable, he must also be replaced. It's not going to be easy, but we've come up with a list of eight people who could possibly lend their voices to the tricky task of introducing various hopeful acts as they pursue their dreams on the biggest stage in Britain...
The obvious choice. Marcus is best known for his dulcet Geordie tones on Big Brother, which have become increasingly exaggerated as time has gone by ("Toniiiiiiiiiiiiight," he yells, sounding like a gruff puppy whose tail has just been stomped on). He has voiceover experience, he »
Colin Baker’s disillusionment with polls that imply a “least favourite” has been well-reported on in the past few days, and I would like to think that we’ve been pretty supportive of his feelings on this (whether we agree or not, it is a situation worthy of consideration and discussion). Indeed, we’ve always been fans of the Sixth Doctor, with...

Race and gender swapping is a current hot trend in Hollywood when it comes to popular genre movies and TV shows. And for a long while, certain fans have been wondering why there can't be a female Time Lord in Doctor Who. Sweeping political correctness to the side, and declaring himself a staunch feminist, former Doctor Who, the 71-year old Sylvester McCoy says The Time Lord can never be female. And he has his reasons why it would never work.
For years now, there has been a quite vocal faction of the Doctor Who fan base who want to see The Time Lord, who has been appearing in male form for more than 50 years, switch it up a bit. There is, after all, nothing in the lore that says the good doctor can't be a woman. But Sylvester McCoy, who played the 7th iteration of the Doctor from 1987-1989, thinks »

HBO is apparently hoping the Yorkshire Dales will be the setting of the next Downton Abbey-style British hit.
It was one of the biggest shows on UK television during its heyday, running from 1978 to 1980 and 1988 to 1990.
Set in the fictional Yorkshire village of Darrowby, the series also starred late actress Lynda Bellingham as Herriot's wife Helen. The role was originally played by Timothy's real-life partner Carol Drinkwater before their split.

Fans of fictional characters often get in an uproar when a specific aspect of that character's personality is changed be it their gender, race, age, sexuality, beliefs or other traits. In some cases it can often be a valid justification as the aspect changed is a key part of that character and how it works in the narrative. Thus by changing it, the original intent of the story is ruined.
In other cases there's a bit more flexibility. In the case of "Doctor Who," you have a unique position - here's a character called The Doctor where the key thing about him is that he regularly regenerates, and when he does he changes drastically both physically and psychologically. In fact the more change the better as it provides a more interesting contrast to what came before, and that frequent changing has been the key to the show's longevity over the years. »

London — Jane Tranter and Julie Gardner — the former BBC executives responsible for “Doctor Who,” “Torchwood” and “Da Vinci’s Demons” — have launched U.K./U.S. production company Bad Wolf to produce high-end TV and film for the global television market.

Bad Wolf will have its production base at a permanent studio in South Wales, and is forecast to attract in the region of £100 million ($155 million) to the economy of Wales over the next 10 years.

It has been destroyed by critics (read our reviews here and here)and was called the Worst Blockbuster of All-Time by our own Anghus Houvouras – but Terminator: Genisys passed a milestone this weekend.
Terminator: Genisys added another $2.5 million to its domestic total and has now made $305 million worldwide, the majority of which has come from overseas. In the Us, the movie has made just $85 million, but its worldwide take of $219 million (taken mostly in South Korea, United Kingdom and Russia) has helped push the movie past the $300 million marker.
However, the movie cost a whopping $185 million – and that doesn’t include marketing costs – so there is still some way for it to go before it becomes “profitable”. Terminator: Genisys is currently the 14th biggest movie of the year, and is being outperformed by The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water, Taken 3 and Mad Max: Fury Road. »

Sylvester McCoy is a popular face in the Doctor Who community. He was the actor behind the clownish, but often dark and manipulative seventh incarnation of the Doctor from 1987 to the cancellation of the classic series in 1989. Since his departure from the role in the TV movie in 1996, Sylvester has often been involved in...
