The Doctor Who 50th anniversary special will air at 8pm on Saturday the 23rd of November on BBC One...
Write this down, or, you know, make a mental note: The Day Of The Doctor is to air on BBC One (and simultaneously around the world and in selected cinemas) at 8pm on Saturday the 23rd of November.
As predicted by many, the primetime Saturday night 8pm slot has been given over to the fiftieth anniversary episode, meaning more than a few bedtimes are going to require an extension that night (especially in light of the episode's seventy-six minute run-time). Well, if you can't stay up late on Doctor Who's golden jubilee, then when can you?
If you missed it yesterday, here's the BBC's official synopsis for the episode, which features Doctors three, Matt Smith, David Tennant, and John Hurt, alongside Billie Piper, Joanne Page,
The fearsome Daleks are among the foes who will return for the 50th anniversary special of Doctor Who.
The creatures celebrate their own half-century this year and will appear in a BBC1 show to mark the milestone which will unite Matt Smith with his predecessor in the role of the Doctor, David Tennant.
Viewers learned at the climax of the last series that veteran actor John Hurt will also play another regeneration of the Doctor, who has previously been unseen, in the special on 23 November.
The episode will also see the return of Billie Piper, who played Rose Tyler, and Jenna Coleman, who has been seen by viewers during the most recent series as Clara Oswald. Gavin and Stacey star Joanne Page will also have a role in the show.
Price: DVD $24.95, Blu-ray $29.95

Robert Stack plays to the crowd in Bullfighter and The Lady.
The 1951 film drama-romance Bullfighter and The Lady was the breakthrough movie for filmmaker Budd Boetticher (Seven Men From Now).
Robert Stack (TV’s The Untouchables) stars as Chuck Regan, a brash American skeet shooting champion whose visit to Mexico introduces him to two irresistible forces: the exotic Anita de la Vega (Joy Page) and the lure of the way of the matador. Unflinching in his confidence, Regan sets out to conquer both, learning bullfighting from an icon of the Mexican corrida, Manolo Estrada (Gilbert Roland). But Regan’s headstrong assertiveness and desire to impress Anita gets the best of him when he debuts in the ring and knows there’s only one way and one place he can redeem himself.
Written by James Edward Grant from a story by Boetticher,

The show is produced by Rollem Productions and its six million plus viewers were enough to convince BBC1 Controller Ben Stephenson to order another season of the show.
Harry Potter star Timothy Spall will resume his role as the store manager while Gavin and Stacey’s Joanne Page will also be back for the news series. 2012 has been a good year for the Beeb with 8 new episodes of its other smash
This is the fourth and final installment in my examination of the classic Warner Bros. film, Casablanca.

TCM (Turner Classic Movies) has put together their version of a tribute video which you can watch below, and it gave me the same feelings I just mentioned (I wasn’t aware they do one every year). It’s a beautiful video and very classy. They did miss a couple of people which I mention below.
I would suggest you watch the video before moving on to the list of names below it. It includes actors, directors, composers, screenwriters, animators, etc.
