“It’s written in sections and it’s about dreaming – what is real and what is not”, she explained while chatting to In Style. As we already know, she also mentioned that “Father Christmas is there – played by Nick Frost!”. He popped up in the trailer, here.
Now, certain sections of the web have taken this to mean she’s definitely appearing in the episode, though she doesn’t expressly say that. However, her knowledge of the episode coupled with the ending of Death In Heaven »

It’s almost the holiday season, and you know what that means -- a new "Doctor Who" Christmas special. Last year's special introduced viewers to the twelfth doctor, played by Peter Capaldi, so who knows what gift the BBC and wrier Stephen Moffat ("Sherlock") will be giving to fans. A new trailer shows the Doctor and Clara (Jenna Coleman) spending Christmas in the North Pole where they appear to run into a nasty, "Alien"-like creature and Santa Claus himself, played by "The World's End" and "Shaun of the Dead" Nick Frost. Watch it here: Other guest stars include Michael Troughton (the real-life son of the Second Doctor Patrick Troughton), Natalie Gumede ("Strictly Come Dancing"), Faye Marsay ("Pride"), and Nathan McMullen ("Misfits"). The 2014 Christmas Special will air on BBC America. »

Atlantis: What do you want from a second series?
London — International sales outfit Cinema Management Group has taken worldwide distribution rights to “The Messenger,” and will be selling the pic at the Afm. The trailer for the film launched today.

The word from Atlantis is that series 2 is much darker and less silly than the first. Here’s our spoiler-free look at episode 1…
When Atlantis came out of the gates last autumn, it was a light, comic Boys’ Own adventure. Its three male leads - the dishy heroic one, the chubby cowardly one, and the nerdy maths one - faced CGI monsters with a mixture of acrobatics, bickering and slapstick. Forays into the darker world of witchcraft and fate were countered by musical comedy stings and pratfalls. Swords were swung. Mythical creatures were battled. Jokes were cracked. Balconies were vaulted off. And a lukewarm average of 5.4 million UK viewers watched it all.
Hoping to increase that number and earn a third series renewal, Atlantis’ creators (Merlin producers Julian Murphy and Johnny Capps, and Misfits’ writer Howard Overman) are reported to have overhauled the second series, making it meaner, moodier, better-paced, »
Produced on a shoestring budget with prosumer camera gear and bedroom-made digital effects, Monsters was a minor miracle of a film. Its director Gareth Edwards is now in charge of the Godzilla franchise and working on a Star Wars spinoff, and it's easy to see why when you look back at his 2010 breakthrough. Focusing on two lost souls wandering through Central America's infected zone after an alien invasion, it juxtaposed an intimate human story with bigger sci-fi ambition. Terrence Malick meets monsters from outer space.
Unfortunately, all this subtlety goes out the window for sequel Monsters: Dark Continent, which chooses to make war not love. Edwards remains as executive producer, but directing chores are handed over to Misfits helmer Tom Green, who co-writes with Jay Basu. »
The slippery, multi-tentacled creatures seen in Gareth Edwards’ “Monsters” have adapted to Earth’s harshest environments, migrating from their Central American infected zone to other parts of the planet in “Monsters: Dark Continent.” Not so much a sequel as another stultifying character drama set in a world overrun by aliens, this 10-years-later spinoff switches directors and genres, as first-timer Tom Green (building on experience from British TV’s “Misfits” and “Blackout”) helms a taxingly over-earnest war movie set in an unspecified Middle Eastern country, where American soldiers deal with insurgents while the menacing MTRs (as they’re now called) lumber about in the background.
Though the human characters from “Monsters” are long gone and only a modified version of the creatures remain, Green’s film should benefit from brand recognition worldwide, sparking international sales and audience curiosity for a film that otherwise wouldn’t much interest moviegoers.

"I've always wanted to do a period drama," she told Digital Spy. "I play a Spanish Moor and she's on the run and been exiled from Spain.
"I get to do a bit of fighting, wear an awesome corset and I had a brilliant time! They have an absolute ball out there in Prague, it's great."
"He's wicked," she said of Salmon. "He's so tall - I didn't get the genes!"

Back in December 2012, it was revealed that plans were afoot to bring the BAFTA-winning British television series Misfits to the big screen, with creator Howard Overman stating that he’d been working on a feature screenplay which would bring together characters from the five series of the show. However, it seems that Overman has encountered issues with the availability of the cast, which has resulted in the plug being pulled.
“There was all sorts of talk about it, says star Antonia Thomas, who played Alisha in the series. “We read scripts and I think it’s now not happening. Everybody is doing such different things. Maybe they think everybody has moved on, I don’t know. You never say never but I have not heard anything of it of late. It was a really cool script, kind of getting the old gang back together, it could have been a lot of fun. »

Nick comments: “I’m so thrilled to have been asked to guest in the Doctor Who Christmas special, I’m such a fan of the show. The read-through was very difficult for me; I wanted to keep stuffing my fingers into my ears and scream “No spoilers!” Every day on set I’ve had to silence my internal fan boy squeals!”
Nick’s frequent partner in crime Simon Pegg appeared in the Eccleston adventure The Long Game as the Editor of Satellite Five, and servant of the Mighty Jagrafess of the Editor-in-Chief, the Holy Hadrojassic Maxarodenfoe (And yes, I used cut and paste, there’s none of us perfect). Other members of the Pegg / Frost / Edgar Wright repertory company who have appeared on the series include Michael Smiley in »

Nick Frost is one of three guest stars that will be appearing in the upcoming Doctor Who Christmas special. Frost is best known for his work with Simon Pegg and Edgar Wright on films such as Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, and The World's End. The guy is a very funny and talented individual, and it's going to be so cool to see him enter the world of Doctor Who. The other two actors joining the special are Nathan McMullen (Misfits) and Michael Troughton, who played the second Doctor in the 1960s.
The news was revealed on Doctor Who's official Twitter feed with the following photo that came with the caption: "#DoctorWho Christmas Special guest stars #HoHoHo."
I can't wait to see what they have in store for the Christmas special this year!

We're not even at the half-way stage of Doctor Who series 8 yet, but already, we're looking ahead to the Christmas special. It's been filming over the past couple of weeks, albeit mainly behind closed doors. As such, details of the guest stars this year has been thin on the ground.
Until now, at least.
Three names have now been confirmed. Firstly, there's Nick Frost, who needs little introduction. Nor, to fans of Misfits, will Nathan McMullen. And in a lovely touch, Michael Troughton, the son of second Doctor Patrick Troughton, has also been added to the cast. Troughton's book on his father's life is well worth picking up.
Steven Moffat has penned the script for this one. It will screen, as you might have guessed, on December 25th. Here's the picture that the BBC Tweeted, »
Rumours of a cast-combining Misfits movie have been sadly quashed by the cast…
Here’s some news which will disappoint a fair few around the UK – a long-talked-about Misfits movie no longer looks like it’s happening.
The film, to our understanding, would have brought together cast members from all five series. A rumoured return for Robert Sheenan’s Nathan, last seen getting jailed in Las Vegas after season two, was a particularly exciting prospect for fans of the show.
The news today comes from another original cast member, Antonia Thomas. "There was all sorts of talk about it. We read scripts and I think it's now not happening," she said.
"I haven't heard anything. I think it's just difficult to get everybody together,” she added. "Everybody is doing such different things. Maybe they think everybody has moved on, I don't know. You never say never but I have not »
There’s no denying the fact that online streaming platforms are the thing of now. Unrestrained by the finite schedules of broadcast, streaming networks, such as Netflix, are offering fans the opportunity to watch old (and original) programming on their TV, computers, or phones. Thanks to the success of Orange Is the New Black and House of Cards and the hype surrounding upcoming series, The Cosmopolitans and Transparent, Netflix and Amazon Prime are getting a lot of attention while Hulu has quietly ramped up its offerings — making it one platform everyone needs to get on board with.
While Hulu Plus constantly touts its large collection of online exclusives, it’s not always clear »

Hammer Films’ gothic scarefest The Woman in Black was an undeniable hit back in 2012. The big screen adaptation of Susan Hill’s eerie novel pulled in close to $130 million at the international box office and managed to strike a chord with its native audience in the UK. Moreover, it comfortably shepherded Daniel Radcliffe away from the shackles of a certain boy wizard and allowed him to stretch his acting muscles as a competent leading man. (The latter point is debatable, but we digress.)
That said, the young British actor won’t feature in the upcoming sequel, The Woman in Black: Angel of Death, which is to be distributed by Relativity Media in North America following a recent deal penned during the Toronto International Film Festival. According to Deadline, the partnership between the studios is said to be north of seven-figures.
In Radcliffe’s stead, the horror sequel will star War Horse »

Before Godzilla, there was Monsters — director Gareth Edwards’ critically-acclaimed 2010 movie about the invasion of Earth by a race of giant, tentacled behemoths. This month, in the wake of Edwards’ success resurrecting the iconic Japanese monster, his own beasties are making their own comeback in Monsters: Dark Continent. With Edwards busy not only on the next installment of the Legendary’s Godzilla franchise, but also his upcoming Star Wars gig, he only served as executive producer on this follow-up, with directorial duties handled by Tom Green, known for his work on British television series Misfits and Blackout.
