Simon Cowell continues to have his hands in more pies than a Premier League footballer. He’s the brains behind this “masterpiece” giving Britain’s Got Talent pooch Pudsey his very own movie. I’ve never seen the show or even heard of said shaggy canine (in fact, I thought the name was copyrighted by BBC’s Children In Need) but my research claims Pudsey triumphantly danced his way to victory on the 2012 season of the talent contest and into the hearts of the British public. I obviously appear to have a heart of stone.
Here we have the first chilling trailer for the film seeing London stray dog Pudsey adopted by siblings Molly, George and Tommy. When Mum Gail (played by Jessica Hynes) decides to move to the village of Chuffington-on-Sea, poor Pudsey finds himself up against evil landlord Mr Thorne (John Sessions) and his cat Faustus.

With under a week to go until the 50th anniversary special, a couple of new "Doctor Who"-related updates have arrived with most of them being promo and/or clip related:
An Adventure in Space and Time
The BBC have released a short clip from the 50th anniversary special as part of the charity special "Children in Need", and features the first (albeit brief) encounter between Tennant and Smith's Doctors.
BBC3 is planning a live after party show immediately following the special. Zoe Ball and Rick Edwards host the program which includes an appearance via satellite from L.A. by One Direction. Several previous doctors and their time-traveling companions are expected to show up for the special. »

I recently posted Doctor Who: A Retrospective of the 50th anniversary Year Part 1. In this article are Clara’s tenure on the Tardis in series 7b, the discovery of long lost episodes, a change in executive producer, Matt Smith’s departure, Peter Capaldi’s announcement and the general speculation that ran throughout the celebration year.
I was all set to release part 2 in a couple of weeks. I bought my cinema tickets for the 3D screening of ‘Day Of The Doctor’. I started listening to the excellent Big Finish audio ‘The Light At The End’. I was all geared up to review the entire month of celebrations
But then something happened on Thursday. An absolute doozy of an event. An event that showed that there the 50th anniversary was capable of big surprises well ahead of the 23rd November.
We had a new on screen adventure of the Eighth Doctor! »

Children in Need has raised over £31 million, surpassing last year's £26 million to mark its record total.
Before the show started, Wogan said: "Another year older and my childhood is almost ancient history, though memories from back then are very fond ones.
"I was lucky. Mine was a happy childhood but for many children in the UK, this isn't the case, which is why the BBC started Children in Need.
"Get involved. Go on, you know you want to. Together we can make 2013 our greatest year ever."
