Doctor Who fans were surprised when it was announced that Matt Lucas had been bumped up from one-off Christmas guest star to full time companion for season 10. After all, in his first appearance, the character – the bumbling Nardole – didn’t seem to have enough substance to him to sustain a longterm role.
Well, how wrong we were. Lucas adjusted his performance accordingly and Nardole became a more textured figure and trusted ally to the Doctor. And, as it happens, Lucas might still have more travels in the Tardis ahead of him. In an interview with Den Of Geek, the actor spoke about how much he enjoyed being part of Doctor Who – and, in the process, hinted that he isn’t done with the sci-fi show yet.
“I’m really glad I did it. No regrets at all, only gratitude. I’m not sure my relationship with the show is over, »

Even when your favourite Doctor regenerates and leaves the show, the great thing about Doctor Who is that they’re able to come back at any point in time. Thanks to time travel, the Doctor can easily bump into his past selves now and then. Of course, it all depends on whether the actor wants to or not, but luckily for the Tenth Doctor’s legion of fans, David Tennant says he’s always willing to return to the sci-fi show.
Whether that’ll ever happen or not is up for debate – we wouldn’t rule it out, though – but in the meantime, we’ve got the next best thing coming our way, as the actor will be reprising the role for a new series of audio dramas he’s recorded with TV co-star Billie Piper Aka Rose Tyler for Big Finish Productions. Granted, it’s obviously not as exciting »

Lesley Sharp has been a regular, comforting presence on our TVs and cinema screens ever since uttering the immortal line: “Make your own fucking tea!” while playing the snooty Michelle in 1980s council-estate romp Rita, Sue and Bob Too. Bringing humour and pathos to even the most unassuming roles, she’s worked with many of the best British directors and showrunners of our times: Alan Clarke on Rita, Sue…; Mike Leigh on Naked and Vera Drake; Paul Abbott on Clocking Off; Kay Mellor on Playing the Field; Sally Wainwright on Scott & Bailey; and several times with Russell T Davies, who once tipped her to become the next Doctor Who.
Sadly that hasn’t come to fruition – yet – but Saturday »

Of course, it all depends on whether the actor wants to or not, but luckily for the Tenth Doctor’s legion of fans, David Tennant says he’s always willing to return to the world of the sci-fi show.
In a recent interview with Doctor Who Magazine to promote a new series of audio dramas he’s recorded with TV co-star Billie Piper Aka Rose Tyler for Big Finish Productions, who also produce adventures starring Doctors 4-8, the actor described playing the iconic character as always “a happy place to be.”

Stars: Kristofer Dayne, Steve Aaron-Sipple, Dan Abrams, Lydie Misiek, John R. Walker, Caroline Munro, Honey Holmes, Gary Martin, Dani Thompson | Written by Garry Charles, Andy Davie, Tony Jopia, Kristofer Dayne | Directed by Tony Jopia
If Monty Pythons and the Holy Grail (1975) and Watership Down (1978) taught me anything growing up, if it doesn’t look like it isn’t dressed up to attend the Playboy Mansion, rampant rabbits are dangerous. Tony Jopia takes that premise one step further with his B-Movie creature feature Cute Little Buggers.
When hostile aliens land on earth with the intension of taking over the planet to save their own race, they choose to mutate the local rabbit population. Blending the rabbits with alien DNA, they knowingly unleashed the cute but vicious blood thirsty creatures on the unsuspecting locals. As the butchered bodies starts piling and the rampant rabbits begin to rampage, the locals are forced to »

A powerful woman is pulling the strings in the new season of “Everlasting,” and it’s not Quinn (Constance Zimmer) or Rachel (Shiri Appleby). A teaser has dropped for the third season of “UnREAL,” and the reality dating show at the center of Lifetime’s critically acclaimed series is making history for the second season in a row. Last season of “Everlasting” saw a black suitor introduced for the first time, and this season will mark the first time a female suitress has held the reins. The spot hints that there’s a seismic shift on set — the female suitress is a game-changer.
“From now on, the only rules are the rules I make,” says the show’s new star, Serena (Caitlin FitzGerald, “Masters of Sex”). Quinn and Rachel have their work cut out for them — the producers aren’t going to be able to manipulate Serena into doing their bidding with as much ease as previous suitors. As Rachel admits, “She’s smart. We can’t handle her in the same way.”
According to Deadline, helmers this season include Shapiro, Hanelle M. Culpepper (“Quantico”), Sheree Folkson (“Doctor Who”), and Zimmer, who will be making her directorial debut. Appleby directed an ep last season and will once again step behind the camera. Earlier this year the “Roswell” alumna inked a multiyear overall deal with A+E Studios, the producers behind “UnREAL.” The agreement sees her creating and developing new projects and producing original programming for the studio and outside buyers via her Appletree Pictures banner.
Season 3 of “UnREAL” will premiere February 26, 2018. The Emmy-nominated series has a new showrunner, Stacy Rukeyser, an executive producer who has worked on the show since it launched. Check out the trailer to meet Serena and to see Quinn’s reaction to a brawl the suitors get into.
Trailer Watch: The New Suitress Is Making the Rules in “UnREAL” Season 3 was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story. »

Matt Lucas was on his way to Yeovil when we caught up with him for a chat. He’s been promoting his excellent memoir Little Me, and he spared us half an hour for a natter that covered Doctor Who, Little Britain, his book, grief, mental health, hair, a Twix bar in the fridge and Les Mis.

"Raymond 'Ray' Terrill was a reporter who discovered a group of government scientists...
"...working on a secret project to turn light into a weapon of mass destruction.
"But before he could report on his findings, the project head exposed Ray to a 'genetic light bomb.'
"The bomb failing to kill Ray, gifted him with light-based powers.
"With these abilities, Ray realized he could go beyond reporting on injustice — he could take action to help stop it.
"Calling himself 'The Ray', he was recruited by the 'Freedom Fighters' to fight 'oppression' wherever it exists..."

By now, you’re probably well acquainted with the concept of fan art if you’re a geek who happens to have some type of social media account. Really, the chances are slim that your feed hasn’t been graced by a piece imagining what certain celebrities would look like if cast as specific heroes or villains. And while you may have your own opinion regarding this matter, you have to admit that it paints a clearer picture than the days when people likely had to draw over magazine clippings ever could have.
The latest example of this comes in the form of yet another fan favorite actor being made up in the guise of the Joker, who is arguably the most popular supervillain in all of fiction. To date, he’s been played in live action by the likes of Cesar Romero, Jack Nicholson, Heath Ledger and Jared Leto, »

This December’s Doctor Who Christmas special, “Twice Upon a Time,” is stuffed full of great guest stars. Not only will Harry Potter‘s David Bradley be appearing as the First Doctor, but Mark Gatiss and Pearl Mackie will be joining in as well to say goodbye to Peter Capaldi as he regenerates into Jodie Whittaker. The fan-baiting cameos don’t stop there, though. At least, not if this new rumour is to be believed.
According to several fans on Twitter, Matt Smith has been spotted on the Doctor Who set, suggesting that the Eleventh Doctor will return in time for his successor’s regeneration. Smith previously cameoed in 2014’s “Deep Breath,” Peter Capaldi’s first episode, so it would bring things full circle if he was to appear in his last one, too.

Back in July, the BBC released a minute-long teaser in which they revealed the actor due to take up the title role in their sci-fi spectacular, Doctor Who. And, after years of speculation and query following the show’s return to TV screens in 2005, the clip revealed that the Doctor would be taking the female form for the very first time, as the individual stepping into the Tardis will be Jodie Whittaker.
Unsurprisingly, reaction to the news swept across the web. Scores of fans rejoiced as the announcement proved that the series’ creators had listened to their requests and long-running hopes for a female lead. In the months that followed, countless people who’ve been close to the show over the years voiced their support for Whittaker, with many former stars even suggesting that, from early footage they’ve been shown, she looks set to be the best-suited to the role yet. »

While chatting to Den of Geek recently, the actress revealed that she and the cast and crew used to have discussions about a female Doctor during her time on the hit sci-fi series. However, she doesn’t recall if any comments ever got back to showrunner Steven Moffat.
“I’m not sure we ever had a direct discussion with him about that. But it was something people talked about regularly. It would pop up every so often, and people had their own opinion on whether that would work or not. But I think nobody ever suggested or said that to Steven Moffat. But I am just so glad they have gone in that direction, because the fact that we’re even having a discussion as to whether »

The actor-director’s forceful but flawed story of a fighter facing a bruising crisis also stars Jodie Whittaker, outstanding as his devoted wife
Paddy Considine now presents his second feature as writer-director, and it’s a powerful and sincerely intended personal project about a championship boxer who must confront a terrible personal crisis. The performances are strong and committed – it reminded me a little of Johnny Harris’s boxing film Jawbone – and Considine’s instincts as actor and director are towards self-scrutiny without narcissism. Yet the audience’s buttons are not just pushed, they get hammered with uppercuts and there is a mile-wide streak of Hollywood emotion here, together with a lenient and even celebratory tone about boxing itself, which you may not entirely share. Yet this all gives the film force, and the quality of the acting is absolutely plain.
Matty Burton (Considine) is a boxer who is approaching the end of his career, »

The Doctor has been played by a number of people over the course of the Doctor Who franchise. Since each person has provided their own particular take on the character, it should come as no surprise to learn that the fans of the franchise can become rather attached to the versions of the character with whom they are most familiar. For proof, look no further than the sheer extent of the emotions that can be seen in a recent tribute video that has been released to celebrate Peter Capaldi’s time as the Twelfth Doctor. Said video features fans of the

Siliconia is a staggeringly ambitious episode that shows exactly what Red Dwarf can do in the Dave era...
This review contains spoilers.
“Our heads are sensibly shaped.”
Kryten is inarguably Red Dwarf's most iconic character. The rubbery, angular mask of the mechanoid head is a marvellous design that should probably stifle any actor wearing it, but Robert Llewellyn's performance has only become more impressive over time. In terms of design and personality, he's the character who could scarcely belong to any other show.
Aside from Llewellyn, only a few other actors have donned the mechanoid get-up in previous episodes, but a lot of what we see in Siliconia feels like it's been on Doug Naylor »
Most of the major players in Disney’s upcoming live-action – well, CGI – remake of The Lion King are already in place, but the role of Nala is currently still vacant. Reports state, though, that Beyoncé’s involved with ongoing negotiations for the part of Simba’s leonine love interest. The issue is apparently the difficulty in navigating around the megastar’s busy schedule.
This isn’t the first time that Beyoncé has been offered a role in a Disney remake, however. It turns out she was first approached to appear in this year’s Beauty and the Beast. In conversation with Yahoo! Entertainment, the film’s director, Bill Condon, revealed that he offered Beyoncé a part in the movie. It’s not entirely clear what stage of the process the casting got to, but it seems the singer turned it down due to the lack of weight to the role. »

The great thing about Netflix’s sci-fi anthology series Black Mirror is that each episode has the scope and panache of a cinematic production. Though these mini-films are made with a fraction of the budget of a blockbuster movie, the ideas on show are easily worthy of being put up on the silver screen. It’s no surprise, then, that Hollywood has come a-knocking several times.
That’s what producer Annabel Jones revealed while chatting with Collider at this weekend’s New York Comic-Con. However, she seemed to dismiss the idea, explaining that she and her team are happy with what they’re doing at the moment.
“We have [been approached] yes, flatteringly a few times. But in our maybe pretentious heads we sort of feel we’re already making a film, you know? They’re certainly structured like films and they’re all independent, so I don’t really feel the need to do that. »
