With a new Doctor Who on the horizon – as incumbent actor Peter Capaldi will exit the show this Christmas – what better time is there to celebrate the different incarnations of the time-travelling hero that the hit BBC sci-fi series has brought us over the past ten years? That’s the thinking from Titans Comics, as they’re about to deliver a four-way crossover featuring the union of Doctors Nine through Twelve.
The crossover will be titled Doctor Who: The Lost Dimension and, according to Comic Book Resources, is “set to tell its story in eight chapters over the course of three months.” It kicks off with an Alpha Issue to be released in August, ahead of Titan’s “Doctor Who Comics Day” global event on Saturday September 2nd. The series will come from the creators of the various Doctor Who books out there: writers Nick Abadzis (Tenth Doctor), George Mann »

A Very English Scandal will tell the true story of MP Jeremy Thorpe, the first British politician to stand trial for conspiracy and incitement to murder. Beginning in the 1960s, when homosexuality had only just been decriminalized in the UK, the logline for the drama reads: “[Thorpe] has a secret he’s desperate to hide. As long as his ex-lover Scott is around, Thorpe’s brilliant career is at risk. Thorpe schemes and deceives — until he can see only one way to silence Scott for good. The trial of Thorpe changed society forever, illuminating the darkest secrets of the establishment. The Thorpe affair revealed such breathtaking deceit and corruption that, at the time, »

Here’s a crazy Orphan Black thought: What if Krystal is the one who cracks this whole clone conspiracy wide open?
In a new trailer for the series’ fifth and final season, the so-called ditzy sestra declares, “I’m getting into a dress, and then I am going to get down to the truth.” (Considering how close she got to it last season, I wouldn’t be surprised if Krystal is the one holding all the answers at the show’s end.)

If there is one problem with Doctor Who it is that things tend to stay the same, and we see nothing really that new. What we’ve needed is something to shake up the status quo. Extremis was promised to be a big episode, but the result was something of a refreshing surprise that many won’t have seen coming.
When The Doctor (Peter Capaldi) is called on to read the Veritas, Bill (Pearl Mackie) and Nardole (Matt Lucas) accompany him to the Vatican. With the legend that anybody who reads the book commits suicide, the news that a translation has spread online is causing much worry, but can The Doctor discover the truth of the book?
The little you read about what goes on in the episode, the better. This is why I won’t be discussing much about the plot, but what works in the episode. I promise »

Hugh Grant is set to play a disgraced British politician in true-story drama “A Very English Scandal,” the BBC said Monday. The project will reunite Grant with director Stephen Frears following the actor’s acclaimed performance in last year’s “Florence Foster Jenkins,” which earned him Golden Globe and BAFTA nominations for best supporting actor.
In “A Very English Scandal,” Grant will play Jeremy Thorpe, the first British politician in modern times to stand trial for murder. In 1979, Thorpe, then leader of the Liberal party and the youngest leader of any British political party in a hundred years, was accused of conspiring to murder his ex-lover, Norman Scott. The film is based on a book by British journalist John Preston.
The three-part drama for flagship channel BBC One marks Grant’s return to British television for the first time in nearly 25 years, when he starred in “The Changeling,” an episode of the BBC’s anthology drama series »

There have been plenty of fan theories floating on social media since Season 10 of Doctor Who began. The questions have prompted more questions, and everyone dedicated to Doctor Who has either mentally contemplated possible answers or joined in discussion posts. The rumors over whether or not Peter Capaldi will leave the show and be replaced by a next Doctor Who incarnation have much to do with the biggest fan theories, though showrunner Steven Moffat has assured fans that the Time Lord loves his role and there’s no reason for Moffat to write him out of the show. Yet, Doctor

Nobody keeps Missy in a vault, except for the Doctor, apparently. Throughout the first few episodes of this season of Doctor Who, we've all been wondering what the hell the Doctor (Peter Capaldi) was protecting in that big vault. We knew that he had made some sort of oath to stay on Earth unless it was an emergency (a rule which he has not been following so far this season) so that he could make sure the vault was secure. He had taken a job as a university professor and stashed the vault in his office and had Nardole (Matt Lucas) bothering him about it all the time, but we didn't know what exactly he was protecting...until now. As many had started to suspect based on the fact that we knew she »
The Pope, a dead President, malevolent monks and the return of Missy … the first in a thrilling three-parter is Steven Moffat’s bid to bend his show almost to breaking point
There has been a lot of chatter in recent weeks about shape. What should a series of Doctor Who look like? So far, this one has been met with near-universal praise for its back-to-back, self-contained stories. But those of us on here tend to enjoy arcs that walk on the wild side. Last week I suggested the idea of a fully serialised season with weekly cliffhangers for Generation Binge, and the suggestion was not unpopular. Yet perhaps the most exceptional thing about series 36/10 is that we’re all getting exactly what we want – the best of both worlds.

Doctor Who series 10 episode 6 is Extremis - and with lots of spoilers, here's our review...
This review contains spoilers. Our spoiler-free review is here.
“Knock yourself out. Actually, do that. Knock yourself right out”
When the ‘a long time ago’ card popped up, and a voiceover kicked in talking about death, I wondered if the latest Doctor Who story, Extremis would be breaking the steady, confident style that’s been winning people over so much this run. Or at least departing from it a little. Here, the episode looked like it was going to zip about more, and that the pace was to be ramped up as a consequence. Not a bad thing depending on the story of course, but not »
The third season of the Welsh detective drama – originally broadcast on S4C – continues to serve as both compelling drama and subliminal tourism advertisement for the local countryside. Dci Mathias is called to a picturesquely remote petrol pump where a customer has been shot dead. The search for a suspect proceeds in what appears the natural direction of a known creep: it would not, however, be a whodunnit if it were that obvious who done it. Andrew Mueller

Guess who's ba-ack! The Doctor's best frenemy is back on Doctor Who this weekend, and it might just be the beginning of the end of an era. Michelle Gomez has played the first female regeneration of the Master, renamed Missy, since season eight, and has been showing up occasionally to both help and torment the Doctor ever since. Last week, news came out that Gomez would be leaving the series at the end of season 10, along with star Peter Capaldi and showrunner Steven Moffat. While Gomez' initial quotes made it seem pretty certain that season 10 would be the end of Missy, Gomez says to not be so sure. "You just never know, especially with Missy, »

Villordsutch reviews Doctor Who Series 10 Episode 6: Extremis…
Directed by: Daniel Nettheim
Written by: Steven Moffat
Doctor – “Truth at the heart of heresy”
Cardinal Angelo – “…and death at the heart of truth.”
Nardole – “You’d be wizard at writing Christmas crackers you two.”
Answers are given in Extremis. Why Nardole is shadowing the Doctor, who or what is contained within the Vault and where Bill is living since her shared student digs crumbled into dust. Also, midway through this episode I was reminded slightly of a certain Rick and Morty episode though sharing the title would reveal too much.
Unfortunately sharing nearly anything about Extremis could in fact reveal far too much to spoil this week’s rather excellent, if not rather morbidly macabre, episode. In Extremis we find the Doctor – who is still blind – being called upon the services of the Vatican, with the Pope himself arriving to request help. »

And this is the episode where it all slows down a little. Where Doctor Who starts to position itself for the second half of series 10. Where Steven Moffat returns on scripting duties, and lays down things that firmly keep the ethos of the series thus far in place, but also opens – no, stop looking for clues, because you ain’t getting spoilers here, no matter how hard you look – a few metaphorical things up.
Extremis picks up at the exact same point we left things at the end of Oxygen, and for the benefit of those who’ve avoided the next time trailers, I’ll skip a few things even that appeared in that. Likely, you know what bits I’m talking about.

Walking the red carpet at the BAFTA awards last week, Victoria Hamilton stopped to have a chat about the return of Netflix's pricy drama about the royal family, The Crown. The actress plays the Queen Mother in the streaming service's popular show, and she'll be reprising the role once again when season 2 lands later this year.
“It’s as rich and as detailed and as extraordinary as series one was,” she noted. “It’s moving into the 60s, so it’s very much about that very modern encroaching world and the world that is the establishment of The Crown. There’s obviously a lot more exploration of certain members of the Royal Family and their stories. It’s wonderful. »
We’ve already seen a trailer for ‘Extremis’ [watch it here], and now a batch of images have arrived online for the sixth episode of Doctor Who series ten which you can check out below…

In the Haereticum – the Vatican’s secret library of blasphemy – there is an ancient book known only as The Veritas. Throughout history, anyone who has ever read it has immediately taken their own life. Now a new translation is online, and the danger is spreading. The Vatican appeals to the Doctor. Will he read The Veritas? But can even the Doctor survive the ultimate truth?

Ahead of her return to Doctor Who this coming Saturday, Michelle Gomez has announced that she is following in the footsteps of Peter Capaldi and showrunner Steven Moffat by exiting the BBC sci-fi show in its current tenth series.
“My guys, my lads, Missy’s men – they’re all moving on!” said Gomez in an interview with Digital Spy. “Steven writes so amazingly for me – it’s like he’s got my voice in his head, and I don’t know how that would be, moving forward. I’m probably just shooting myself in the foot here. This time next year, I’ll be like, ‘Why did I say that?! I’ll work for anybody!’ – but I don’t know how I’d feel about being The Master to any other Doctor, because I feel like I’m part of Peter’s time. I’m sure in a couple of years’ time, »

A fresh pontiff will follow in Jude Law's footsteps, as Sky and HBO announce The New Pope...
Instead of The Young Pope season 2, Sky and HBO are pressing ahead with a limited series entitled The New Pope.
Variety reports that the previous show's head scribe Paolo Sorrentino - and his co-writer Umberto Contarello - will return to pen this new drama, which once again takes place "in the world of the modern papacy".
Filming in Italy is scheduled for late 2018. It'll be a while before the show is on our screens, then. We assume that it will air in 2019, but that's just guesswork on our part.
"Just like The Young Pope, Sorrentino is writing the script for the new show, »
