Doctor Who recap: series 37, episode two – The Ghost Monument

Last week we were off to a slow start, but with hair-raising moments and tons of adventure, this week Doctor Who is feeling like itself again

Spoiler Alert: This weekly blog is for those who have been watching the new series of Doctor Who. Don’t read ahead if you haven’t seen episode two, The Ghost Monument.

The dancing lights of the new titles and the Delia Derbyshire-isms of the new theme tune are a trip right back to where it all began. I for one was loving them.

With the Tardis and its translation matrix lost, Chibnall smoothly explained how everyone was able to understand each other’s alien languages: the Medipods had installed translators into their necks.

The Tardis now has a biscuit dispenser. And why not?

Graham’s insistence on calling the Doctor ‘Doc’ is annoying me already.

He will rock you: Rami Malek (‘Bohemian Rhapsody’) breaks out as a leading Oscar rival for Best Actor

He will rock you: Rami Malek (‘Bohemian Rhapsody’) breaks out as a leading Oscar rival for Best Actor
Only two Gold Derby Oscar Experts who’ve seen “Bohemian Rhapsody’ have updated their Best Actor predictions since Fox unveiled it to a select crowd of award voters and journos on its Century City lot last night, but Peter Travers (Rolling Stone) and I both just pushed Rami Malek up into second place behind Bradley Cooper (“A Star Is Born”).

Expect more Oscarologists to shove Malek higher up on their rankings, too – even to number one? – over the next week as “Bohemian Rhapsody” unspools at more industry screenings across Hollywood. There’s an embargo on film reviews, but suffice it to say that Malek delivers, wows, bedazzles and seizes your heart in a performance guaranteed to be a leading Oscar contender for Best Actor. Maybe even the winner.

Julie Andrews movies: 15 greatest films, ranked worst to best, include ‘The Sound of Music,’ ‘Mary Poppins’
Julie Andrews started singing at a very young age. So young in fact, that at age 13, she became the youngest performer ever to give a Royal Command Performance for then British monarch King George VI. After many appearances on the British stage, Andrews made her Broadway debut at age 19 in the musical “The Boy Friend.” That performance led to her being cast as the lead in one of the biggest hits and most acclaimed productions in Broadway history, “My Fair Lady.”

Her great success in “My Fair Lady” would later become one of her greatest disappointments when she was deemed too unfamiliar to film audiences to recreate her role on film (though her Broadway co-stars Rex Harrison and Stanley Holloway were both hired). In her place the studio hired Audrey Hepburn who gave a good performance but had to have her singing dubbed by another performer. Some studios felt Andrews

We’re calling the series “Revisiting Hours” — consider this Rolling Stone’s unofficial film club. This week: Scott Tobias on Jonathan Demme’s 2004 remake of The Manchurian Candidate.

It never sounded like a good idea to remake The Manchurian Candidate. Majors studios are always looking to plunder the vaults, eager to turn yesterday’s properties into tomorrow’s surefire hits, but John Frankenheimer’s

Pete Davidson and Ariana Grande Get Matching Tattoos
Pete Davidson and Ariana Grande are doomed ... because they got matching tattoos.  The tattoo reads, "mille tendresse" -- which translated means "a thousand tendernesses." It's actually from "Breakfast at Tiffany's," when Audrey Hepburn's character blurts out, "Bless you, darling Fred.  Please forgive the other night. You were an angel about the whole thing. Mille tendresse." Here's the thing ... it was actually Pete who made the tattoo matching, because Ariana got hers back in 2014.  Both

Tina Fey made the acronym — coined back in the 1980s by Philip Michael Thomas of “Miami Vice” — famous in a 2009 episode of “30 Rock.” While moviedom’s top prize — the Oscar — dates back to 1927, two of the other kudos came about in the 1940s while the first Grammys were not awarded until 1959. By the way, if you are looking for Harry Belafonte, James Earl Jones, Liza Minnelli, or Barbra Streisand among this list, they aren’t listed because at least one of their awards was honorary and not given in competition.
