British actor Ben Whishaw (The Hour, Cloud Atlas), who portrayed Q opposite Daniel Craig's James Bond in Skyfall, has been cast in London Spy, an upcoming BBC drama. The 33-year-old, who was last year among those tipped to become the new star of Doctor Who before Peter Capaldi was cast, will play the lead character in the series made by Working Title Television for BBC Two. Five episodes of the hourlong show are scheduled to air next year. Whishaw, considered one of Britain's up-and-coming stars, will play Danny, "a gregarious, hedonistic romantic who gets drawn into

Since Doctor Who returned to screens large and small in 2005 it has stepped out of the subculture and truly become a global phenomenon. Now, nearly a decade of Nu-Who on, fans of the show are truly living in a golden age. This is an age where wearing your Doctor Who T-shirt to school actually makes you cool. An age where Target Novelizations are valuable collectibles and not items that must be hidden at all cost lest they get you beaten up after gym class. An age where you might actually wear your Doctor Who T-shirts out in public and get something other than confused stares.
Time has rolled on and proved that we were right all along, Doctor Who Is the coolest show ever. Now everyone knows it.
So why aren’t we happier?
It may well be that while paradise is nice and all, it doesn’t mean »

For Game of Thrones fans, autumn is a terrible time of year.
A new season of episodes are still a long way off, and the only way we can keep ourselves amused in the meantime is watching re-runs or by following Maisie Williams on social media and pretending that Arya Stark really did go to Glastonbury this year.
Who should win Game of Thrones? The cast deliver their verdict.
So what better way to keep ourselves occupied than snooping around for some of the most mind-blowing and bonkers fan theories that the internet has to offer?
Don't keep reading if you're worried about Spoilers, but if you're intrigued about what the show's most hardcore fans think is really going on in the battle for the Iron Throne, we've got six of the most discussed conspiracies below.

New images for Doctor Who's next episode 'Time Heist' have appeared online.
The episode sees the arrival of Keeley Hawes's Ms Delphox on the BBC sci-fi drama.
The pair are confronted by Ms Delphox and The Teller in their attempt to steal from the most dangerous bank in the cosmos.
We're up to Doctor Who series 8 episode 5: here are some promo images and a trailer for Time Heist...
This Saturday, we have Time Heist on our screens, which, like Listen, will have some references back to Who lore. We’d wager they’ll be minor moments in an otherwise romp-like episode, though.

Here are the snaps...
And here's the very brief trailer...
Time Heist airs this Saturday at 19:30 on BBC One.

Imagine if a Time Lord and Skyler White teamed to solve a young boy’s murder in a small Northern California town? That’s what it’s like for fans of Doctor Who and Breaking Bad approaching Fox’s Gracepoint, which takes David Tennant and Anna Gunn, beloved for playing for iconic cable TV roles, and puts them into a big broadcast prime-time crime series. For Tennant, the role means embracing the unusual, perhaps unprecedented, step of reprising the same character he played in Broadchuch, the U.K. version of the show (though Fox has added a different ending for Gracepoint). For Gunn, »

The last episode of Doctor Who, titled "Listen," was really great, with Clara living up to the title of "The Impossible Girl." It really feels like they have locked in on a few elements of the new Doctor. Peter Capaldi's Doctor is a lot more alien, has zero attraction to Clara, likes to use a chalkboard, and is generally more wily and dangerous.
The trailer for the next episode, titled "Time Heist," looks really exciting and will air this Saturday, September 20th on BBC America.
The Doctor turns bank robber when he is given a task he cannot refuse: steal from the most dangerous bank in the cosmos. With the help of a beautiful shape-shifter and cyber-augmented gamer, the Doctor and Clara must fight their way past deadly security and come face to face with the fearsome Teller, a creature of terrifying power that can detect guilt… »

Villordsutch reviews Doctor Who series 8 episode 4 – ‘Listen’….
The Doctor: Why do you have three mirrors? Why don’t you just turn your head?
This weeks Who is a return to its opening form with “Listen” and one of the best things about this episode for myself is that I have children to watch as this episode plays out. You hear stories of Who fans, from generations before you, hiding behind cushions when the Daleks first appeared and we never got to witness this – but now I can and this week I watched my children hide in fear. Though what where they hiding at I don’t really know as all the way through The Doctor explained with an amazing amount of tension what the bangs, clangs and shapes on the bed – rationally – could be.
In “Listen” our story begins with the Doctor scribbling upon the chalkboard again (is this a »
After the massive success of the BBC Series Peaking Blinders we’ve got the trailer for season 2. If you missed season 1, the show stars Cillian Murphy, Helen McCrory, Paul Anderson, Sophie Rundle and Joe Cole, and you could liken it to the British version of Boardwalk Empire (sort of!).
Season 2 sees many guest stars including Tom Hardy, Noah Taylor and Charlotte Riley. The show is written by Steven Knight (Dirty Pretty Things, Eastern Promises, Locke) and directed by Colm McCarthy (Doctor Who, Sherlock).
Check out the trailer for season 2 below. The show comes to BBC 2 in October.

And that is the trouble with hype, ladies and gentleman. Ever since the script and rough cut were leaked, Listen has been quietly talked up in fan circles (and more recently in the press) as one of Steven Moffat’s best episodes and also one of his scariest. A pair of accolades that it in no way lives up to.
While there’s nothing that makes Listen a noticeably bad episode, there’s also nothing that really takes it above being average. And the thing that really holds it back from having the chance of living up to its hype is that it’s far too scattershot
Although the plotlines intersect most of the time and advance alongside each other, the choice of including the bootstrap paradoxes concerning the main characters takes away too much attention from the monsters when the only one that’s really important to the »

Doctor Who takes a time jump to the end of the universe, where mastermind Steven Moffat introduces his newest creature creation, as well as life’s final hero, in what will certainly be referred as the episode which helped solidify Capaldi as the Doctor to the show’s many fans.
“Listen,” written by the one and only Steven Moffat, throws Clara (Jenna Coleman) and the Doctor (Peter Capaldi) into the world of children’s nightmares, taking them on an adventure to the past and future in search of the beasts who live in secret and wait until all is silent. Elsewhere, Clara’s date with Danny Pink (Samuel Anderson) leads to a confusing meeting in ...

So, the monster under the Doctor’s bed when he was a kid was Clara. Well, why not? She’s been responsible for every other important thing in his life.
And while we’re at it, why not another example of Steven Moffat’s recycling his own ideas — whatever you do, don’t look; the monster in the shadows; the impossible astronaut — and other Doctor Who-ish things: the knocking from outside in a place where nothing’s supposed to be alive; the stranded time-traveler who’s related to someone else in the episode. As long as it’s all a fairy tale anyway, it doesn’t need to actually hang together as a narrative, right?
Because: awwwww. The Doctor as a little boy! Fear is a superpower! Toy soldiers!
Anyway, none of it’s really real, right? Everyone has the dream about their ankle being grabbed from under the bed, »

Part of the genius of Season Three’s benchmark “Blink” is how utterly standalone it is, which is why it’s often the go-to installment to show to newbies: The ride can be enjoyed with virtually no knowledge of the Who mythos. “Listen” comes from a different direction; our protagonists are front and center throughout the episode, and far more so than “Into the Dalek,” this feels like a proper introduction to the world of Danny Pink. Whereas “Blink” was about Sally Sparrow and angels that nobody had seen before, this is about the Doctor, Clara, Danny, and ghosts that nobody will ever see.Perhaps the real difference between the two is where Steven Moffat is as a Doctor Who writer. Back in season three, he was a scribe for hire, likely eager to make another defining mark, but now he’s been the showrunner for five years. Moffat may »

Warning! Spoilers: This post contains spoilers and speculation for the Doctor Who series eight episode “Listen”.
When we are children we survive in the only way children know how. We hide. We wrap ourselves in bed sheets and crawl into closets and close our eyes. We twist harsh words and violent actions inside our heads until we turn them into things we can live with. The world is so much bigger than we are it is beyond comprehension. We are dependent on beings that are infinitely more powerful than us and they are not always kind. Our voices are not heard. We do as we are told. Until one day we don’t.
Steven Moffat remembers what it’s like to be afraid of the dark. His story “Listen” is about the terror of the mind and how we hold ourselves hostage. We cannot conquer fear we can only acknowledge it. »
