Doctor Who 10 years on: Where are the class of 2005 now?

The world of Doctor Who has changed greatly in the space of just 10 years. The cast and crew have almost completely been replaced since 2005, including a number of new actors to play the errant Time Lord and his companions.

But what has happened to the class of '05? Where are Rose and Mickey now? What is the writer of 'Dalek' up to? And where can you see more work from the director of 'Rose'?

Here it is then, your guide to the main players of Doctor Who series one.

The Cast

After his three-month on-screen stint as the Doctor, Christopher Eccleston's career continued in much the same vein, taking in theatre, interesting television roles and the odd blockbuster.

Post-2005, the Northern actor went Stateside to take on the role of invisible man Claude in the Us series Heroes. From there, he popped up in a very amusing Doctor Who-esque cameo as Dr.

Netflix UK: 25 underappreciated TV shows worth checking out

Louisa Mellor Aug 22, 2016

You've heard of Breaking Bad, Orange Is The New Black & House Of Cards, what about Danger 5, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, Darknet and more?…

Quite understandably, column inches can't fill up quickly enough with praise for the likes of Netflix original series House Of Cards, Orange Is The New Black, Breaking Bad spin-off Better Call Saul and Marvel's Daredevil. What though, about some of the lesser-known series available on the UK streaming site?

Sweeping past the well-publicised riches of Doctor Who, Sherlock, Arrested Development, Community and the like, we've ventured into the slightly dustier shelf of TV shows available on Netflix UK that may be lesser-known or less widely celebrated than the big hitters out there, but are still richly deserving of your time. Some are new, some are old, some were cancelled long ago, some are ongoing, several are from outside the UK and Us.

Lucifer: Tom Ellis cast as lead in comic book pilot

Comic book adaptation Lucifer has found its leading man – EastEnders, Doctor Who and Miranda star Tom Ellis

Adding another name to the long list of British actors who have headed to Hollywood to portray American comic book characters, Welsh actor Tom Ellis has now been cast in Fox’s Lucifer pilot, as you may have heard over the weekend.

Depending on your tastes in television, there are many roles you could recognise Tom Ellis from. He landed a small but significant role as Thomas Milligan in Doctor Who’s Last Of The Time Lords, a 29-episode stint as Dr. Oliver in EastEnders and a series regular role as Gary in BBC comedy Miranda. To our cousins across the pond, he might be better known as William P. Rush in the medical-themed TV drama Rush.

He will take the title role in Lucifer, based on Mike Carey and Peter Gross’ comic of the same name,

The Quiet Ones - Witness the Film's True Events

This weekend's horror offering, Hammer's The Quiet Ones (review), is supposedly based upon true events. So we figured we'd look around and come up with the actual video of said events. Curious? Take a look!

The film draws inspiration from the Philip Experiment of 1972, in which Canadian academic researchers tried to prove that telekinesis, poltergeists, and the like manifest solely through the human mind.

A quick trip to YouTube yielded some fruits for us paranormal-loving souls. The video you see below contains actual footage from the aforementioned experiment, and honestly? It's pretty damned interesting. Check it out, and tell us what you make of it!

The Quiet Ones is written and directed by John Pogue (Quarantine 2) and stars Jared Harris ("Mad Men," The Ward), Sam Claflin (Snow White and the Huntsman, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire), Erin Richards ("Breaking In," "Being Human"), Olivia Cooke ("The Secret of Crickley Hall," "The
