It all started off so innocently. Christian Cawley and Brian A Terranova settled down to chat about some recent Doctor Who news when it all got too much for the American. The news that Steven Moffat had declared the Doctor “not a role model” sent the Kasterborous associate editor over the edge, resulting in a foul-mouthed...

He may have changed face but does the Doctor still fancy Clara? Well, Steven Moffat seems to think so… At the beginning of his tenure as the Doctor, Peter Capaldi insisted that there would be no romance between the Doctor and his companions; specifically, there would be ‘no papa-nicola moments’, adding that there had been...

Vicious is back on June 1st, the rather un-pc sitcom about an elderly gay couple played superbly by knighted stars Ian McKellen and Derek Jacobi, who Doctor Who fans will recognise as the Great Intelligence in The Snowmen and Utopia‘s Professor Yana… The sitcom – which was incredulously labelled by some as “homophobic” – also...

Writer Peter Harness is currently on a roll. After attracting praise for his work on Wallander, his Doctor Who episode Kill The Moon brought him to more mainstream attention. But it’s his current work which should propel him to the A-List of British writing talent, a place fully deserved. Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell, the 800+ page period fantasy novel, considered by many to be unadaptable, has debuted as a TV series on the BBC to rave reviews (not least on this site).
One of the adaptation's key strengths is the streamlined nature of the script, which still captures perfectly the world and characters created by novelist Susanna Clarke. For that, Perter Harness must earn the plaudits. Proving to be a very charming and clever guy, he took the »
In an interview for BBC Writersroom, Whithouse appeared to play down the possibility of resurrecting the supernatural BBC Three series.
"We all know shows that have outstayed their welcome, or been cynically resurrected," he said.
"No-one would thank me - least of all the Being Human fans - if I went back with anything other than a stunning and revolutionary idea. Anything less would demean the show. And I haven't had that idea."
Being Human - a drama about a ghost, a werewolf and a vampire attempting to lead normal lives - aired five series on BBC Three between 2008 and 2013.
Just when we were starting to wonder what the future held, news comes through that Steven Moffat is set for another year as Doctor Who showrunner. Speaking at a New York Q&A event, Moffat revealed that he has ‘just signed up for another year’, meaning he’s set to oversee Series 10 in (presumably) 2016. The...

DC doesn't have the greatest track record with their cinematic endeavors, but when it comes to television, they've had some amazing hits. However, outside of animation, they didn't really branch out to many of their second tier heroes until Smallville hit the air. We were then introduced to not only the young Clark Kent, but eventually Green Arrow, Cyborg, Aquaman, Impulse and many other heroes before its ten year run ended. A year and a half later, producers Greg Berlanti and Andrew Kreisberg brought us Arrow, starring Steven Amell as Oliver Queen in a darker, grittier take on the hero (which has borrowed more than a little from the Batman comics), who has returned home to find that his city has been run down by corrupt politicians and a seedy criminal element. Taking on the guise of Arrow, he sets out on his own to take his city back, only »
The season finale of CWs the Flash has set up the introduction of the DC multiverse; a plot element that has been confirmed by series star Grant Gustin. We’ll see “Earth One and Earth Two in the near future.” Does this open up the possibility of the DC TV universe to connect to the film continuity?
CW’s super hero series the Flash has wrapped up its excellent freshman season, with a very busy finale that wrapped up the first year story arcs and establishes a convoluted new time stream where the architect who set the shows major events in motion—the Reverse Flash—never existed, and yet the Flash (Gustin) still does; despite the fact that it was the actions of Reverse Flash (Tom Cavanagh) that gave him his powers. (Hopefully they’ll explain how that works in season two) The show ended on an epic cliffhanger where »

I’ve often wondered if there are others out there that were of the same mind as me, that would agree that there has been a criminally low amount of Sontaran stories since Doctor Who returned in 2005. Sure, we usually get a sort of annual appearance from Dan Starkey’s Strax, but not a true Sontaran arc...

Earlier this year news came that Martin Scorsese was looking to tackle, in one way or another, an adaptation of William Shakespeare's Macbeth. Or rather, the scoop was that Scorsese was looking to direct an adaptation of Kenneth Branagh's stage adaptation of Macbeth, which Scorsese caught in New York and was apparently quite taken with. If that confuses you at all, you aren't alone, but hopefully this will clear things up a little. The Telegraph reports (via The Playlist) Scorsese's project will be more documentary than strict narrative adaptation, with the director filming Branagh's live production over the course of several weeks at the Leavesden Aerodrome, an airfield in Hertfordshire, England built during World War II. Branagh will reprise his role as the titular Macbeth, and he and Scorsese hope to reunite as many members of the production's original cast as possible including Alex Kingston ("Doctor Who"). This project is, »

Doctor Who is the persistent subject of rumours - from the credible to the outright absurd - and it can be difficult to separate what's fact from what's fiction.
Lucky for you, dear reader, that Digital Spy is on hand to cut a swathe through the nonsense - these are the facts, 100% confirmed, about series 9 of the world's greatest science-fiction series.
Filming began on the 9th series of Doctor Who - its 35th run overall - on January 5, 2015 for a planned transmission in the autumn. Steven Moffat will serve as lead writer and executive producer for the fifth time.
Coleman was widely expected to be leaving the series in the 2014 Christmas special - and indeed had planned to exit - »
Welcome to the new column “Comics Issues” where two Sound on Sight writers debate a important or controversial comics industry topic. First up, we discuss whether the DC New 52 was a successful initiative or not. Feel free to post your opinion in the comments below.
Pro: “The DC Comics New 52 was successful.”
Overall, I think the New 52 was a successful initiative for DC Comics. The new #1’s attracted a lot of new readers (including yours truly) and made titles like Action Comics and Batman, which seemed inaccessible with issue numbers in the three digits. Speaking of Batman, the New 52 has been a time of creative renaissance for the character and his family of titles from Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo’s soon to be legendary run on the title to artistically interesting books like Gotham Academy and Grayson. Other highlights of the New 52, include Grant Morrison’s metafictional event comic »
I’ve had a chance recently to catch some, not all, of Showtime’s series, Penny Dreadful, and I’ve enjoyed it quite a bit. It takes the same concept of Alan Moore’s League of Extraordinary Gentlemen (combine genre characters from the Victorian Age into a single story) and uses it with mostly horror and supernatural characters and elements, again in Victorian London.
The “real” penny dreadfuls were the pulp fiction of their day, precursors to the pulp magazines and also comics. The TV series was created by John Logan (who, among other things, wrote Skyfall and will be writing the next two James Bond films as well) and is the co-executive producer along with James Bond director Sam Mendes (he also directed The Road to Perdition).
