I Wish I Could've Reviewed 'Beyond' ...

The last time I saw a Star Trek movie for the first time on opening weekend, it was 1998 for "Star Trek: Insurrection."Ian Cullen, someone I have known since our days chatting in the Star Trek area of AOL, had made the trip from England to Orlando, and I was taking both him and his mom to see the film in a suburb of Tampa.Sure, there's only been three movies since then, so it's probably not that major of a feat. But I've attended previews of "Star Trek: Nemesis," the 2009 "Star Trek" and its sequel, "Star Trek: Into Darkness." I was even invited to a preview of "Star Trek: Beyond," but unfortunately I'm currently, should I say, geographically disadvantaged.For the past year, I've been living in the amazing island nation of Grenada. We are in the southernmost part of the Caribbean Sea, and really ...

'Doctor Who' top 10 best stories: 10 - 'The Aztecs'

Digital Spy readers named David Tennant as Doctor Who's greatest ever Doctor - now, with just 10 weeks to go until the 50th anniversary, DS is embarking on a new quest... to list the top 10 Who stories of all time.

We kick off with a William Hartnell classic - a sublime character drama set in 15th century Mexico that saw Doctor Who confront the dangers of time-travel and changing history for the first time...

10. The Aztecs (1964) - Four episodes - written by John Lucarotti

Narrowing down Doctor Who's (as-of-writing) 239 stories to the 10 best was an incredibly difficult task, but one serial that was always guaranteed to make it into this writer's own personal 'Best Of' list is John Lucarotti's fantastic jaunt into history, 'The Aztecs'.

William Hartnell's first Doctor struck gold early on - his sixth story is his very best, with a multi-layered and powerful script,

Doctor Who 50th anniversary: Who will be part of the celebrations? (video)

As the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who gets closer, there are plenty of rumours about which stars from the past might be returning to what has become the world's longest running sci-fi series.

One man fans would love to see enter the Tardis again for the 2013 celebrations is William Russell, one of the original stars of the programme.

Russell played science teacher Ian Chesterton (below) who, alongside his colleague Barbara Wright (Jacqueline Hill), was whisked off into time and space with the initially untrustworthy Doctor (William Hartnell) and his granddaughter Susan (Carole Ann Ford).

During his two years with the show, Russell would travel back in time and encounter cavemen, Aztecs, Richard the Lionheart, Emperor Nero and Marco Polo, as well as battling monsters in the future, including Sensorites, Voord, Zarbi and the ever-popular Daleks.

Fifty years on, Russell explained described the show's longevity as "amazing" and that he thinks

The Moffat-Yates Saga: Will there be Two Doctors?

A while back, it had been announced that David Yates – the man who directed some of the best of the Harry Potter films – was planning on making a big screen version of Doctor Who. The problem being that Yates’ vision was of a completely different Doctor, absolutely separate from the established canon of the series. Many Whovians (myself included) called foul, and questioned how someone could even imagine such a thing. After all, it was attempted in the sixties, with Dr. Who and the Daleks, and Daleks’ Invasion Earth: 2150 A.D. Both films starred Hammer Studios veteran Peter Cushing as Dr. Who, an eccentric human inventor who created Tardis, which only resembled the ship on the outside, the inside looking like an indoor lab. The two films took Terry Nation’s first two Dalek stories from the original series and transposed them for the films, which little resemble the much better program.

Watch: Video featurette for Dawn of the Dragon Slayer ahead of DVD/Blu-ray launch on February 13

Having breathed enough mythological fire to secure the Best Fantasy Film prize at BleedFest in Los Angeles, Anne K. Black's Dawn of the Dragon Slayer is heading to UK stores on DVD and Blu-ray on February 13, 2012.

The film is the first fantasy dragon feature to be directed by a woman and Anne presented the world premiere of the movie at BleedFest last September.

The festival is held in Los Angeles every month and celebrates "the women who love writing, producing, directing, and watching badass genre movies: action, thriller, sci-fi, horror, fantasy, western, exploitation (of men or audience only), B-movie, and erotica."

It was the first directing role for Anne, who also co-wrote the special effects extravaganza and previously co-scripted the 2003 modern-day update of Pride & Prejudice. After the praise for Dawn of The Dragon Slayer, she is now finishing work on another sword-and-sorcery film titled The Virgin And The Warrior.

Felicia Day Interview For SyFy’s Red

Unfortunately, SyFy‘s Red: Werewolf Hunter hit in the midst of holiday and sporting options that took over the collective mindset, and the media push for the show was not quite what it might have been. An entertaining bit of fantasy fun somewhere in the “tradition” of SyFy’s other fable spins (Tin Man and Alice), Red: Werewolf Hunter stars new media sensation Felicia Day as a descendant of Little Red Riding Hood… sort of… or something.

The show will air again sometime in December, and Twitter clued me in earlier today that there are hopes it will be available online before that, so you will have a chance at it again, but the interview with Felicia Day was too interesting to let lie.

It was an especially interesting call, and necessarily edited though it may be, I tried to leave much of it as it happened. Well, plus, I
