Near the turn of the century a struggling war correspondent named Edgar Wallace began churning out detective stories for British monthlies like Detective Story Magazine to help make the rent. Creative to a fault, his preposterously prolific output (exacerbated by ongoing gambling debts) soon earned him a legion of fans along with a pointedly ambiguous sobriquet, “The Man Who Wrote Too Much.”

A reader new to Wallace’s work could be excused for thinking the busy writer was making it up as he went along… because that’s pretty much what he did. He dictated his narratives, unedited, into a dictaphone for transcription by his secretary where they would then

Doctor Who: revisiting each Doctor's first encounter with the Daleks

Mark Harrison Dec 2, 2016

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.

Erin Andrews’ DWTS Halloween Style Was a Sultry Twist on a Classic Costume
On last night’s episode of Dancing With The Stars, the entire crew took advantage of Halloween and came to the ballroom decked out in costume for the occasion. And always-stylish hostess Erin Andrews took it as an opportunity to play around with a darker, more gothic look.

The 38-year-old star showed off her personality in a slinky sparkly black Lorena Sarbu gown with a high slit, paired with a fun pair of lace bunny ears (hers are from TopShop!) to complete the sexy bunny costume.

“All throughout the week, we were trying to figure out what I could do
