New Companion Bradley Walsh Didn’t Even Have To Audition For Doctor Who

The role of a Doctor Who companion is one of the most sought after on TV. Apart from just being a fun part to play, joining such a beloved institution can act as an unknown actor or actress’ big break. As such, usually each new companion is only cast after a rigorous auditioning process. For example, the story of how Pearl Mackie was cast as Bill Potts was recently revealed in a behind-the-scenes featurette.

It’s a bit surprising, then, that one of Jodie Whittaker Aka the Thirteenth Doctor’s new companions didn’t even have to audition. Bradley Walsh, a popular figure on British TV thanks to his long career as a comedian and game show host, was the only person showrunner Chris Chibnall considered for the role of Graham, one of three characters hopping aboard the Tardis for season 11.

Game Of Thrones’ Final Script Brought Kit Harington To Tears

Jon Snow no longer knows nothing.

With HBO now in the process of capturing Game of Thrones‘ swan song – filming commenced in Belfast earlier this month – Kit Harington and the show’s power players recently conducted a table-read for the series finale, and it’s one that reduced the 30-year-old actor to tears.

Speaking on The One Show (via Metro), Harington got a little misty-eyed when recalling HBO’s read-through, which mapped out the show’s ending and, presumably, who winds up on the Iron Throne when all is said and done. To his credit, Kit Harington believes Game of Thrones is wrapping up at just the right time, lest HBO’s fantasy flagship overstay its welcome, and coming off the gripping seventh season, the actor touched base on the emotional impact of season 8’s finale.

Why Kit Harington Cried While Reading Last ‘Game of Thrones’ Script (Video)
No one is going to miss “Game of Thrones” when it airs for the final time in 2019 as much as Jon Snow himself, Kit Harington, who cried during the read-through of the HBO hit’s last script. “I know everything now,” the actor told BBC’s “The One Show.” “You have to remember that eight years of it — no one really cares about it more than us,” he said during Friday’s U.K. talk show. “It’s been an institution longer than any other institution I’ve been in,” he continued. “School, drama school, anything. I get a bit weepy thinking about it.

"I cried at the end," he confessed. "You have to remember that eight years of it -- no one really cares about it more than us."

Mel Brooks is right, The One Show is crazy – thrilling, isn’t it? | Jack Bernhardt

From Debbie Harry’s love of chickens to Corbyn’s love of manhole covers, this blend of surreal banality and political subversion is much more than a talk show

Ah, The One Show. Hosted by Matt Baker – so excitable I’m positive he’s actually just a labrador in human costume – and Alex Jones – contractually obliged since 2010 to smile at all times – it has a reputation of being bland, inoffensive and charmingly incompetent, the Hufflepuff of television. This week, during one of its trademark segues from “fun celebrity interview” to “devastating segment about someone losing their family”, guest Mel Brooks could take the show’s inherent stupidity no more.

That’s how you get Theresa May talking about Eurovision or Christopher Ecclestone matching tennis player to grunt

Was he saying Cameron should be ashamed of himself, or just curious about the lumbar support in the bed at No 10

Female BBC Staffers Tell Boss To Close Gender Pay Gap Now In Open Letter

More than 40 high-profile female BBC employees have written an open letter to BBC director-general Tony Hall published today in UK newspapers urging a quick end to gender pay disparities at the pubcaster. It comes after an annual BBC salary report published last week revealed two-thirds of its highest salaries were dished out to men. The letter, signed by the likes of BBC World News America anchor Katty Kay, BBC Newsnight presenter Emily Maitlis and The One Show host Alex…

BBC Reveals Stars’ Salaries Amid Controversy Over Pay for Women

The BBC revealed the salaries of its top stars Wednesday, with presenters Chris Evans and Gary Lineker among the highest earners. The public broadcaster was forced by the British government to publish the names and numbers in its annual report, and as expected, the data showed that most of the big earners are men, fueling a debate on the gender gap at the BBC.

Evans (pictured), who has worked across radio and TV for the BBC, was the highest-earning star and the only one in the £2,220,000 to £2,249,999 bracket. (The figures are banded in £50,000 increments.) Evans placed above talk-show host Graham Norton, who earned between £850,000 and £899,999.

The top-earning woman at the BBC was presenter Claudia Winkleman, in the £450,000 to £499,999 bracket, significantly behind a number of male stars; Evans’ salary is at least four times that of Winkleman’s. Her “Strictly Come Dancing” co-host, Tess Daly, was in the £350,000 to £399,999 bracket.

Sherlock Season 5 Still On The Cards, But It’s At Least A “Couple Of Years Away”

Perhaps the game is still afoot after all?

For all of the critical acclaim directed at the mystery drama, Sherlock season 5 is by no means a sure thing, and over the past six months, many of the show’s creative team – Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman included – have entertained the possibility that the fourth season will become its last.

The jury’s still out on that one, but one actor who still believes Benedict Cumberbatch’s prickly intelligent sleuth has a future on the small screen is Andrew Scott, who plays Sherlock’s arch-nemesis, Moriarty. Appearing on last night’s episode of The One Show (via Radio Times), Scott joked that the UK is more likely to stage another General Election before the show’s fifth season debuts. But assuming co-creators Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss are able to get the gang back together, it’ll likely be “another couple

Last week the BBC led its bulletins for a whole day with the “news” that a 95-year-old man might retire. This week, courtesy of some marshmallow questioning on The One Show, we learned that another man likes ties. Alex Jones giggled winsomely about the Pm’s kitten heels, then turned to Theresa May’s husband. “What’s your shoe equivalent, Philip?” she beamed, with her big Welsh face.

Theresa May Commented on Her Influential Shoe Style and Twitter Wasn’t Happy About It

Theresa May Commented on Her Influential Shoe Style and Twitter Wasn’t Happy About It
The British Prime Minister, Theresa May, is notoriously known for her standout footwear choices. (Seriously, we haven’t been this captivated by a Brit’s shoes since Victoria Beckham’s gravity-defining high-heel days.) But the politician’s recent comments on her shoes weren’t well received on Twitter.

May did an interview with BBC’s The One Show alongside her husband, Philip May, on Tuesday, and after talking politics and family life, the conversation turned to her eccentric taste in accessories. “I like my nice shoes and it gives me a reason to go and buy some more,” she said.

'Monkmania v sassy Harry Potter' – the University Challenge final, reviewed by last year's winner

Has there ever been such a hotly anticipated final? Monkmania’s last hurrah was a nail-bitingly close match from two startling, near-omniscient teams

Has there ever been a more hotly anticipated final? And not just for #Monkmania’s last hurrah, but for the meeting of two teams whose near-omniscience over the course of the series has been genuinely startling – even for University Challenge.

In the light-blue corner, Wolfson College, Cambridge had grounds for optimism going into the final, having previously beaten Balliol in a close quarter-final. (Due to the quarter-finals system, which host Jeremy Paxman never tires of calling “Byzantine”, each team plays for best of three.) Captain Eric Monkman probably needs no introduction, having generated such ardent levels of admiration that fans have reportedly stalked him in the street, and declared to love him more than their own children. Not only has Monkman’s devoted fandom propelled him on

Jennifer Aniston Explains Why She Wants to Keep 'Friends' in the Past
Jennifer Aniston has no desire for a Friends reunion.

During a Thursday interview on ITV's Lorraine, the 47-year-old actress opened up about why she doesn't share fans' wish for a revival of the hit series.

"Honestly, I don't know what we would do," Aniston told host Lorraine Kelly with regard to getting the cast back together. "I think that period of time was sort of nostalgic. I think why people have such an affection for it is because even though it was only 12 years ago it ended, or 13 -- God, it's getting farther and farther away -- there was something about a time where our faces weren't stuffed into cell phones."

"We weren't checking Facebooks and Instagrams," she continued. "We were in a room together, in a coffee shop together. We were talking, having conversations. We have lost
