In casting too coincidental to be fate alone, the Peter Capaldi’s Twelfth Doctor will be joined in the Series 8 finale by an on-screen pal from hit comedy The Thick of It. The Radio Times has announced that Chris Addison will appear in this year’s climactic two-parter intriguingly titled Dark Water/Death in Heaven… Addison is

This weekend, Doctor Who fans will finally get to see the first episode of the new series and decide for themselves what Peter Capaldi brings to the role of the Doctor. To whet your appetite for what Steven Moffat and the Doctor Who team have in store, the official Doctor Who Facebook page has announced the list of episode titles for the series and there are mentions of Daleks, robots, time (unsurprisingly!) and death. There is also one episode called The Caretaker, though whether that has anything to do with the nickname the Doctor was given during his wartime Christmas adventure remains to be seen.
Here’s the full list:
3 – Robot Of Sherwood (by Mark Gatiss)
4 – Listen (by Steven Moffat)

What a trip! In advance of the new season of Doctor Who, stars Peter Capaldi and Jenna Coleman, along with executive producer Steven Moffat, have been traipsing across the globe to interact with fans of the show, hitting seven cities on five continents. With their last stop in Rio de Janeiro, Brasil, they have traveled

I came very close to shutting off Selfie in the first few minutes. The new sitcom, which debuts on ABC at the end of September, is currently previewing its pilot episode on Hulu, and that could be a mistake. Watching TV on the Internet allows viewers to judge something super quick, and I foresee a lot of others being turned off by the opening scene, which introduces one of the most obnoxious characters ever to hit the small screen — and that includes a lot of awful reality TV stars. But anyone able to get through the first few minutes without closing their browser and throwing their computer out the window will find something genuinely charming and maybe even a little socially important. One episode in, Selfie is far from being a good show, but it has a cultural relevance that’s not unlike The Newsroom. Similar to Aaron Sorkin’s HBO drama, the »

The clip sees the actor speak about the joy of playing the Doctor.
"Today as we are filming this, no episodes of mine have gone out," he said. "I've only been on screen for five, ten seconds at the end of the Christmas special.
"But as I understand it there's a whole pile of people outside who'd like to meet Doctor Who, even though this incarnation of him has only been on-screen for seconds.
"It's Doctor Who that is attractive, it's the character, and that's a great privilege to carry that around with you, and to enjoy the kindness and the welcome that bestows on you.
"You can only try and give some of that back. Ultimately, at the end of the day, I'm not Doctor Who, I'm just Peter, so there's a limit to my magical qualities! »
The extensive Doctor Who promotion tour has come to a close in Rio de Janeiro.
Over 11,000 fans were treated to previews of 'Deep Breath', episode one of the upcoming eighth series, in Cardiff, London, Seoul, Sydney, New York, Mexico City and finally Rio de Janeiro, with Q&A shows at each venue.
The trio travelled over 35,000 miles travelled in total, and took part in six photo shoots, including at Cardiff Castle, South Korea's Bosingak Bell, New York's Top of the Rock, Sydney's Harbour Bridge and Rio's Christ The Redeemer.
Capaldi's debut as the new Doctor will air this Saturday, August 23 at 7.50pm on BBC One. »
The Doctor and his adventures in space and time return to television (and Cineplex theatres!) this month with a brand new Doctor helming the Tardis – In the Loop and “Thick of It”’s Peter Capaldi.
The Scottish actor is a lifelong fan of BBC’s science fiction classic, Doctor Who, and he couldn’t be more excited to play the Twelfth Doctor: “Every day is full of moments that you go, ‘Oh, wow! I’m the Doctor. This is amazing!”
Whether you’re a Whovian or Who-illiterate, make sure to grab your ticket for “Deep Breath,” the premiere episode of the next season of Doctor Who – in select Cineplex theatres on August 25 and August 30!

The guide consists of a key quote and basic teasing description of each of the episodes to come. The Radio Times (via Blogtor Who) has now published his guide for this year:
1. Deep Breath
"Who frowned me this face?"
A slaughterhouse restaurant and a buried spaceship lead The Doctor into a confrontation with a long-forgotten foe...
2. Into The Dalek
"Imagine the worst thing in the universe, and then don't bother because you're looking at right now. This is evil refined as engineering."
In the dying days of a bitter war, a beleaguered army has one last hope: a Dalek so damaged it has become good. But can it be trusted? To find out, a miniaturised team, led by The Doctor and Clara, embark on »

ABC has proven itself capable of delivering creatively strong comedies over the years, though almost all of them don’t last long (see: the late, lamented Trophy Wife, underrated gem Suburgatory, gone-too-soon Happy Endings, very funny Don’t Trust the B—- in Apartment 23, subversive Better Off Ted and, looking back further, cult classic Pushing Daisies). It’s too early to tell whether Selfie, starring Karen Gillan of Doctor Who fame, will join that lineup of strongly written, low-rated comedies, but the pilot episode shows some promise, despite a few missteps.
Centering on Eliza Dooley (Gillan), a self-obsessed sales rep in her early twenties, Selfie takes aim at the general public’s crippling addiction to social media. Eliza is “Insta-famous,” having amassed 263,000 followers across Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Out of those ‘friends,’ though, she can only claim to know a select few. Everything about Eliza is built for public consumption, »

With Peter Capaldis first episode, Deep Breath, airing on Saturday, here are some facts you just need to know
Three days to go! It has been eight agonising months since Matt Smith dropped his bow tie to the floor and, ushering in a new era of Doctor Who, turned into a mad-eyed Peter Capaldi, who barked at Jenna Colemans Clara: Do you happen to know how to fly this thing?!
This weekend sees the start of Doctor Whos 34th series (or eighth in the new money) with the feature-length Deep Breath a rollicking adventure through Victorian London that reunites us with old friends Madame Vastra, her wife Jenny and Strax the Sontaran butler. We cant tell you anything else of course (and if you really wanted to ruin it for yourself, youve probably already read the leaked scripts). So how about getting to know our new Time Lord a bit better? »

Very “X-Files”-ish in tone (and featuring some prominent alums of that show among its producers), “The Intruders” is another moody, macabre drama that proves too stingy about disgorging its secrets. Adapted from Michael Marshall Smith’s novel, the series involves, as the press notes explain, “a secret society devoted to chasing immortality by seeking refuge in the bodies of others,” without really making clear the rules through two rather violent episodes. Fans of the genre might be more patient about where this serialized story is heading, but those confined to one lifetime should think twice before potentially squandering some of it on this.
Set in the Pacific Northwest, this British production has most of its cast adopting Yank accents, presumably for the practical purpose of securing Canadian tax credits. Developed by Glen Morgan (and counting his brother Darin, another “X-Files” veteran, among its producers), the series stars John Simm »

The BBC is launching a companion series for the eighth season of sci-fi hit show Doctor Who, which kicks off this weekend with Peter Capaldi as the new lead. The companion series, Doctor Who Extra, will be available in Britain exclusively on the BBC iPlayer, the public broadcaster's VOD service. Each of the 12 episodes, which are 10 minutes long, will become available after a new episode. In the U.S., Doctor Who airs on BBC America. The BBC didn't immediately mention any plans to make the program available in the U.S. "Doctor Who Extra is much more

The BBC has today announced Doctor Who Extra – a brand-new series, exclusively on BBC iPlayer. Doctor Who Extra is much more than a ‘making of’ show, as we follow Peter Capaldi every step of the way throughout the creation of his first season as the Doctor. This should be a fascinating collection of weekly

A new 10-minute BBC iPlayer and Red Button show will go behind the scenes on each episode of Doctor Who series 8...
Salve to the wound fans suffered when the excellent Doctor Who Confidential was taken off our screens in 2011 is the announcement that a new weekly show promises to go behind the scenes on Doctor Who series eight, following "Peter Capaldi every step of the way throughout the creation of his first season as the Doctor".
Doctor Who Extra will comprise twelve ten-minute episodes, one for each episode of the new series, "getting the inside take on series eight from the people who made it". It will be available to view on BBC iPlayer and via the Red Button after the broadcast of each new adventure.
The first episode of ABC's millennial comedy Selfie premieres September 30, and now you can stream the first episode online. Selfie is a modern retelling of My Fair Lady, which stars Doctor Who's Karen Gillan as "Eliza Dooley" a narcissistic social-media addict who hires a marketing guru, played by Harold and Kumar's John Cho, to rehabilitate her image after she accidentally stars in an unflattering viral video. Watch the pilot (or just pretend to watch the pilot while you check your Instagram) on Hulu. »

What can you tell me about Twelve and Clara's dynamic on Doctor Who? — Aisha
Things will be very different between the pair now that the Doctor — to put it gently — has a few more years on him. In fact, without her schoolgirl crush influencing her, Clara begins to come into her own and be more assertive in their relationship. "I think she succeeds in dominating him, telling him what to do," Peter Capaldi teases. But don't expect him to be a total pushover. "She can only get so far with that," Capaldi says. "Then he'll turn. He often turns."
What is Juice up to when the new season of Sons of Anarchy begins? — Luke
Since he both "betrayed" Jax and killed the sheriff to protect Gemma, he's understandably keeping a low profile. »

ABC teamed up with Hulu for the early release of the new show Selfie. The strangely titled show is a modern take on the classic My Fair Lady. The show stars Doctor Who’s Karen Gillan plays the main character Eliza Doolittle, who is a non-respected pharmaceutical sales rep. She decides to enlist the help of a branding expert. That is where John Cho’s Henry comes into play. He will be the sound voice in her world that helps her work out her image issues. The series will have the official premier on September 30th.
The show seems to be not showing a lot of support yet. Fans have avoided the subject of the possible nightmare of being common with the supposed musical that it is inspired by-while it premiers. The show doesn’t seem to hold a lot of hope right now. Maybe that is why ABC decided »

The latest marketing move from ABC for its upcoming sitcom “Selfie,” if nothing else, is fitting with theme.
The Alphabet debuted the pilot of the series on Hulu and ABC.com ahead of its premiere next month. The show, a modern retelling of “My Fair Lady,” stars Karen Gillan of “Doctor Who” and “Guardians of the Galaxy” fame as Eliza Dooley, a narcissist who is obsessed with becoming famous over social media. John Cho plays a marketing guru who helps her rebrand her image after a video of hers goes viral, showing her there’s more to it than Facebook and Twitter — hence, the irony of debuting the show via social media.
Still, to debut a show over social media that targets Millennials is certainly appropriate for its desired audience. The show is not set to premiere on ABC for more than a month, with an airdate of Sept. 30.

Question: Anything at all on the final season of Sons of Anarchy? —Jennifer
Ausiello: Tara’s spirit will loom large throughout the final 13 episodes, but Maggie Siff won’t be embodying that spirit. Asked if the actress might appear in a recreated flashback or as a vision to her widowed hubby, series creator Kurt Sutter tells me, “I’ve never done flashbacks or dream sequences on this show. They tend to pull me out of the reality of a show like this. »
BBC America is playing its cards close to the vest in revealing details about its spooky new series Intruders, drawn from Michael Marshall Smith’s 2007 novel and directed by Blair Witch Project mastermind Eduardo Sánchez. According to the network, the thriller “is about a secret society devoted to chasing immortality by seeking refuge in the bodies of others” and features Jack Whelan (Doctor Who’s John Simm), a troubled former Lapd cop who escapes to a peaceful new life in the Pacific Northwest with his pretty wife Amy (Mira Sorvino). When Amy goes missing on a business trip, then returns a … Continue reading →
