Showrunner Steven Moffat revealed to Radio Times that he has a big revelation planned for the upcoming Doctor Who Christmas special. (You might want to skip down if you want to be completely spoiler-free. However, I’d like to think that if he’s talking about it, there are bigger surprises to enjoy in the special.) Thanks to a botched regeneration by David Tennant‘s Doctor, Matt Smith‘s version is actually the 13th incarnation of the Doctor. According to Doctor Who lore, the Doctor is limited to 13 incarnations. Thus, transitioning to Peter Capaldi‘s Doctor will mean changing the rules of the show.

Recent Yale graduate Marissa Neitling has landed her first regular role on the TNT’s upcoming drama series The Last Ship. Executive produced by Michael Bay, it’s about the crew of a lone naval destroyer after a global pandemic who must find a way to pull humanity from the brink of extinction. Neitling, repped by Kmr and Wishlab, will be playing a member of the crew, a highly trained officer in the Combat Information Center — the intelligence and weapons hub of the ship. Rome and Luck alumna Kerry Condon is joining another upcoming drama series, NBC’s Believe, from Alfonso Cuaron and J.J. Abrams. It centers on Bo (Johnny Sequoyah), a girl with special powers.

Starz pirate drama "Black Sails" will be executive producer Michael Bay's first small screen venture, though the blockbuster king already has more series in the works -- post-apocalypse series "The Last Ship" at TNT and supernatural pilot "Occult" at A&E. The premium network unveiled a new, more impressive trailer for "Black Sails" at New York Comic Con this past weekend, which you can check out below. The series, which is a prequel to Robert Louis Stevenson's "Treasure Island," was created by Jon Steinberg ("Jericho") and Robert Levine and certainly looks plenty lavish. It so pleased the crowds at San Diego Comic-Con that it's already earned a second season renewal ahead of its premiere in January. Neil Marshall ("The Descent," "Game of Thrones") directed the first episode.

Rebecca Dane sported a printed bikini while enjoying a day on the beach with her family in Malibu, CA, last week. She was joined by her shirtless husband, Eric Dane, and their adorable daughters, Billie and Georgia, as well as a couple of friends. Eric and Rebecca took their little girls down to explore the ocean and even posed for some sweet family photos in the sand.

When Eric Dane was killed off at the beginning of Season 9 of "Grey's Anatomy," fans of Mark Sloan and his shirtless ways mourned his loss ... but it all started to make more sense when he was cast as Tom Chandler on TNT's "The Last Ship" a month later.
Although Dane was happy to join the Michael Bay-created series, he admitted that it was hard for him to leave "Grey's" behind.
“'Grey’s Anatomy' is a world ... it’s not about any one individual actor and the storylines were sort of ... you know, heading in different directions. So it was an opportunity for me to go and I was interested in something different,” he told EW. “I loved doing 'Grey’s Anatomy.' I would have done it until the final episode, but this was something I couldn’t pass up.”

TNT has ordered up ten episodes of Michael Bay's new post-apocalyptic action drama series called The Last Ship, and it looks awesome! The network released a trailer for it that you've got to check out. I was actually really surprised by how good it looks.

Eric Dane (Grey’s Anatomy) stars as Captain Tom Chandler, a career Navy man who lords over the Nathan James, while Tracy Middendorf (Boardwalk Empire) plays his wife Darien. Adam Baldwin (Chuck) plays Slattery, the ship’s second-in-command who occasionally clashes with Chandler over the best course of action, and Rhona Mitra(Strike Back) is Rachel Scott, »
