Jamie Mathieson interview: writing Doctor Who

21 October 2014 5:23 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The writer of Mummy On The Orient Express and Flatline, Jamie Mathieson, talks us through his Doctor Who experience....

Even before the credits had rolled on his second Doctor Who episode, Flatline, people were asking if writer Jamie Mathieson would be back for series 9 of the show. But Mathieson's path to Doctor Who goes right the way back to his original pitch in 2004, via a feature film screenplay (Frequently Asked Questions About Time Travel, his writing on Being Human and a further, unsuccessful Who pitch.

We caught up with Mathieson, once Mummy On The Orient Express and Flatline - his first two Doctor Who adventures - had screened. And he took us through his Doctor Who experience...

You've said before that you arrived at your Doctor Who pitch meeting with four episodes outlined. First thing then: what's a Doctor Who pitch meeting actually like?

A Doctor Who pitch meeting is fairly banal really. »

The Once And Future King dramatisation coming to BBC R4

8 October 2014 7:04 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

T.H. White’s Arthurian fantasy classic will air as a six-part radio drama on BBC R4 this November…

Following on from its Dangerous Visions sci-fi season, and before this December’s Good Omens adaptation, the BBC Radio 4 drama department is serving up yet more glorious geek fare in the form of a six-part dramatisation of T.H White’s The Once And Future King.

White’s tetralogy of books, largely written in the early Second World War though first published collectively in 1958, tells the legend of Arthur’s apprenticeship to wizard Merlyn as a young boy, the inception of the Round Table at Camelot and King Arthur’s struggles as ruler, dealings with Morgause and Mordred, and the relationship between Queen Guenever and Sir Lancelot.

As well as wry humour and action romps, a thread of political debate over the philosophy that “might is right” runs throughout White’s book, »

Doctor Who: First look at Frank Skinner in 'Mummy on the Orient Express'

7 October 2014 4:50 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Frank Skinner is such a big fan of Doctor Who that he even has his own five-foot cardboard Dalek in his bedroom, so it must be a dream come true for the comedian to find himself joining the show for this week's episode 'Mummy on the Orient Express'.

Skinner is cast as Perkins in the exciting new episode, which also guest stars David Bamber, singer-songwriter Foxes, John Sessions and Christopher Villiers.

Speaking about landing the role, Skinner said: "I love this show. I subscribe to Doctor Who Magazine, I've got a Tardis ringtone, a five-foot cardboard Dalek in my bedroom and when I got the call saying they wanted me to read for the part, I was in the back of my tour bus watching episode three of 'The Sensorites'. I am beyond excited."

Showrunner Steven Moffat joked that he gave Skinner the part to stop him camping out in his garden. »

TV’s Metal Hurlant Chronicles is being rebooted

7 October 2014 12:07 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Doctor Who series eight writer Jamie Mathieson is leading new Metal Hurlant Chronicles series for Syfy...

Métal Hurlant Chronicles (Heavy Metal Chronicles to many an English-speaker) is a French sci-fi comic book brand which dates back to 1974. It was first brought to TV by France 4 in 2012. These two series were later aired by Syfy in the Us.

Given the cult following for the comics, the orginal TV version had appearances from lots of celebrity fans including Scott Adkins, Michael Jai White and - ahem - Kelly Brook.

Now, Doctor Who series eight writer Jamie Mathieson is bringing the show back for a new rebooted series Métal Hurlant: Origins. Mathieson has written the next two Doctor Who episodes (Mummy On The Orient Express and Flatline), as well as being a regular for Being Human before its cancelation, if you were wondering.

Mathieson’s new version of Métal Hurlant Chronicles will predate the original narrative-wise, »

Jamie Mathieson Tapped To Pen ‘Metal Hurlant: Origins’

6 October 2014 1:38 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Paris– France’s Atlantique Productions is set to reboot the French sci-fi hit series “Metal Hurlant Chronicles” with Jamie Mathieson (“Doctor Who,” “Being Human”) on board as head writer.

Atlantique Productions is joining forces with We Productions, the outfit behind “Métal Hurlant Chronicles” - the English-language skein (pictured above) that sold to more than 80 countries, including Syfy in the U.S. — to co-produce “Metal Hurlant: Origins.” 

“Métal Hurlant: Origins” is in development and will go into production in early 2015 for delivery in the third quarter.

“Metal Hurlant” is based on the French sci-fi and fantasy comics anthology published in the U.S. as “Heavy Metal” and created by comic artists Jean Giraud (a.k.a. Moebius) and Philippe Druillet in 1974.

The reboot will depart from the anthology format used in the first two seasons to become serialized. It will therefore span a single story for a whole season with a recurring cast. »

Ben McKenzie suffers head injury while filming Gotham

14 September 2014 3:47 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

We’re all very excited by the premiere of Gotham which hits our screens on September 22nd. But remember folks, it’s all fun and games until someone bangs their head against a concrete pillar.

A few days ago Ben McKenzie – who stars as a young Detective James Gordon in the crime drama – was filming a fight sequence when the incident happened forcing him to be rushed to hospital to get stitches in his head.

The actor posted some images on his Instagram account and laughed off the accident afterwards, “Fight scene gone awry. Don’t ram your head into concrete pillars kids…Holy concrete wall Batman!”

Check out the graphic image below…

Thankfully it wasn’t a serious injury and he was able to dust himself off afterwards saying “Thanks for stitching me up nice. Back to work Monday.”

New Gotham featurette focussing on Detective Harvey Bullock

12 September 2014 12:00 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

We’ve had a couple of Gotham promos this week featuring on Oswald Cobblepot and Detective James Gordon, and now it’s the turn of Donal Logue’s Detective Harvey Bullock, who is the subject of the latest featurette from the Batman prequel series. Take a look below…

Everyone knows the name Commissioner Gordon. He is one of the crime world’s greatest foes, a man whose reputation is synonymous with law and order. But what is known of Gordon’s story and his rise from rookie detective to Police Commissioner? What did it take to navigate the multiple layers of corruption that secretly ruled Gotham City, the spawning ground of the world’s most iconic villains? And what circumstances created them – the larger-than-life personas who would become Catwoman, The Penguin, The Riddler, Two-Face and The Joker.

Pratchett and Gaiman's Good Omens coming to BBC Radio 4

The first ever dramatisation of Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman's 1990 novel, Good Omens, is coming to BBC Radio 4...

Here's some news to put a spring in any fantasy fan's step: following the success of 2013's splendid Neverwhere dramatisation, BBC Radio 4 is working its magic on another UK modern classic, Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman's 1990 novel Good Omens.

Due to air in six parts over a single week in December 2014, Good Omens comes from the creative team behind Neverwhere, with The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy's Dirk Maggs adapting and directing, assisted by producer Heather Larmour and of course, Neil Gaiman.

It's the first time the co-authored novel, which tells a raucous story of ancient prophecies, impending armageddon, and sushi, has been adapted for radio, with progress on a much-anticipated film version with Terry Gilliam appearing to have stalled for the foreseeable. The story of Good Omen's collaborative »
