24 November 2014 7:32 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Torchwood writer Catherine Tregenna will apparently pen an episode of Doctor Who for its ninth series.

She also worked on four episodes of Doctor Who spinoff Torchwood across its first two series - 'Out of Time', 'Captain Jack Harkness', 'Meat' and 'Adam'.

If her episode forms part of the final line-up, Tregenna will be the first female writer to contribute to the show since 2008.

Jennifer Lawrence speaks briefly about X-Men: Apocalypse

20 November 2014 2:38 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With Jennifer Lawrence doing the promotional rounds for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1, it’s inevitable that the actress will be fielding questions about her upcoming role in 2016’s X-Men: Apocalypse, and during a chat with IGN the actress has briefly spoken about where we’ll find her character Mystique in the mutant superhero sequel:

“She’s very complex. She’s a hero to her own race in a way which makes her a villain to the opposite race. I don’t really know where she’s gonna go. I’ve had a few conversations about where we’ll find her. She obviously needs to be in hiding somewhere.”

X-Men: Apocalypse is being directed by Bryan Singer, with Lawrence set to be joined by X-Men: Days of Future Past stars James McAvoy (Professor X), Michael Fassbender (Magneto), Nicholas Hoult (Beast), Evan Peters (Quicksilver) and Hugh Jackman (Wolverine). Meanwhile Chloe Moretz »

New UK sci-fi and fantasy shows to look out for in 2015

20 November 2014 9:54 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Androids, magic, parallel worlds, ghostly crime, and the apocalypse. Here’s a raft of new forthcoming UK sci-fi and fantasy TV…

The superhero genre may be taking up residence in cinemas for the foreseeable, and Game Of Thrones and The Walking Dead are leading Us TV's genre output, but what can fans of UK sci-fi and fantasy look forward to seeing on television over the next year?

There’s Doctor Who of course, which appears to be in rude health and going nowhere, a Christmas Special from Black Mirror, and a hint of new Red Dwarf on its way. (And of course, if there’s anything like justice in the world, the terrific In The Flesh will be recommissioned for a third series.)

If though, you’re thirsting for something new, 2015 is promising to deliver a handful of geek TV gems. We’ve scoured the new UK commission announcements for anything spooky, »

Jake Quickenden lolling seductively in the surf, Nadia Forde beaming in a red bikini, and poor Edwina Currie kissing a koala called Rogue before he urinated all over her - these are just some of the cheesiest pre-jungle photoshoots.

Unbelievably, cheesier and even more staged snapshots of former I'm a Celebrity contestants over the years exist, and we've found them.

Let's celebrate with 13 of the silliest and seriously staged shoots from before and after the jungle below:

1. Edwina Currie

Everyone knows the old showbiz adage - never work with children or animals. But that didn't hinder former politician Edwina Currie - confirmed for her jungle debut tonight - who happily puckered up to a koala aptly named Rogue as he urinated all over her top. Currie took part in the shoot at Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary in Queensland yesterday (November 19).

Bryan Singer’s X-Men: Apocalypse is going introduce fans to a younger version of Jean Grey and Cyclops. The characters were previously portrayed by Famke Janssen and James Marsden.

According to The Wrap the studio, is looking at casting either Chloe Moretz (Kick-Ass), Elle Fanning (Super 8) or Hailee Steinfeld (Ender’s Game) as a young Jean Grey. As for the part of Cyclops, they are looking at Ben Hardy (EastEnders), Charlie Rowe (Red Band Society), and Timothee Chalamet (Interstellar). The news comes from multiple sources close to the production at 20th Century Fox.

An insider confirmed that both Moretz and Fanning have met with Singer recently, but there are other up-and-coming actresses still in the mix. No official test offers have been made yet, but »
