Traumatic First Trailer & Poster For ‘Pudsey: The Movie’

21 December 2013 4:43 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

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.

Do yourself a favour. »

"Doctor Who" 50th Anniversary Updates

18 November 2013 9:32 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

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

There's two quite different promo trailers for the telemovie "An Adventure in Space and Time" which looks at the origin of the "Doctor Who" series back in 1963.

Children In Need

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.

Doctor Who Live: The Afterparty

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. »

Doctor Who: A Retrospective Of The Anniversary Year (Part 2)

16 November 2013 5:22 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

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! »

16 November 2013 12:00 AM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

How often do I have sex? I seem to remember Nick Clegg answered that question and it didn't work out so well for him

Nick Robinson, 50, grew up in Macclesfield. As a teenager, he survived a car accident in which two friends were killed. He is the only person to have been political editor of both ITV and BBC News, the latter since 2005. As well as appearing on TV and radio, he writes an award-winning blog. His updated book, Live From Downing Street, has just been published in paperback.

When were you happiest?

Toasting marshmallows on an open fire in Yosemite national park.

What is your greatest fear?

Being strapped into a rollercoaster. My son persuaded me. I was terrified.

What is your earliest memory?

Tricycling.

Which living person do you most admire and why?

My wife, because she has to live with me.

Children in Need beats record total after raising £31 million

15 November 2013 6:12 PM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Children in Need has raised over £31 million, surpassing last year's £26 million to mark its record total.

The annual BBC fundraiser, which has been running since 1980, featured performances from Doctor Who, Jls and the EastEnders cast.

Sir Terry Wogan presented the six-hour event, alongside Fearne Cotton, Tess Daly, Zoe Ball and Nick Grimshaw.

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."

Stars of West End musical Matilda kicked off proceedings, before ice-skating legends Torvill and Dean took to the Strictly Come Dancing dancefloor and were praised by head judge Len Goodman. »

Children In Need

7.30pm, BBC1

Comic Relief's slightly less edgy older brother returns for its 34th annual fundraiseathon, and, well, you know the drill: Wogan, Pudsey and the overarching sense that the whole affair is a bit too regimented for anything truly memorable to happen. Still, good cause and all that. Doctor Who and One Direction are the headline acts this year, with a clip from the former's forthcoming anniversary episode getting an airing, and the latter performing live. Elsewhere, 'Enders does Strictly, while Harry Hill remakes/mocks an 80s musical staple. Gwilym Mumford

14 November 2013 12:58 PM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

A teaser for the Strictly Come Dancing Children in Need special has been released.

The clip sees Olympic skating duo Torvill and Dean swap the ice rink for the ballroom as they compete against each other in a battle on the dancefloor.

Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean pair up with pro dancers James Jordan and Aliona Vilani respectively, to learn a routine which they must perform in front of a studio audience.

When asked whether he finds the Strictly ballroom daunting, Dancing on Ice coach Dean replies: "Very, very daunting. I have to say, this is not as slippy as it should be."

Bruce Forsyth and Tess Daly will host the special event, which will air as part of the fundraising broadcast on Friday, November 15.
