Doctor Who: Ben Wheatley on Deep Breath and Into The Dalek

At the Rts Doctor Who: Anatomy Of A Hit event, director Ben Wheatley shared his experiences of making series 8’s opening episodes…

Read what Steven Moffat had to say about series 8 at the same event, here.

Since wrapping on Doctor Who episodes Deep Breath and Into The Dalek, director Ben Wheatley has been busy making his latest feature, an adaptation of J.G Ballard’s High Rise. Until now, his filming schedule on High Rise precluded any appearances at the the public events surrounding Deep Breath, so it was a genuine treat to see him talk at this week’s Rts Doctor Who: Anatomy Of A Hit event. Along with Steven Moffat, Millenium FX artist Rob Mayor and Who producers Brian Minchin and Nikki Wilson, Wheatley shared his experiences of making Peter Capaldi’s first full episodes as the Doctor…

Mark Gatiss interview: Doctor Who, Sherlock, Space And Time

We chat to Doctor Who and Sherlock writer and actor Mark Gatiss about his series 8 episode Robot Of Sherwood, 'darkness', and more.

Warning: contains a spoiler for An Adventure In Space And Time.

Mark Gatiss is a busy man but polite to a fault. He agreed to squeeze in a chat with us after a lengthy round of Us phone interviews on the eve of broadcast for his seventh Doctor Who episode, Robot Of Sherwood ("It'll just be nice to talk to someone who doesn't say Rah-ban Hud!"). Half an hour before the scheduled time, he calls to say that he's finished with the Americans but would I mind waiting twenty minutes while he has his tea? Take as long as you like, I say, thinking a) how rare it is for 'the talent' not to communicate their running-late apologies through a PR, b) for 'the talent' to apologise for running late at all,

Doctor Who: 12 Reasons To Love The Twelfth Doctor

BBC

Series 8 is finally upon us, and it heralds the triumphant appearance of a new Doctor. Despite the new face, it’s still obvious that number 12 is the same man we’ve all come to know and love over the last 50 years. One of the highlights of a regeneration episode is to see what the new incarnation is like, what his likes and dislikes are, but at the same time waiting for that one defining moment where is no doubt in mind that the essence of the Doctor hasn’t changed at all. This is crucial when introducing a new Doctor, but when it’s played correctly, the audience comes to love his new self for being the same but also different.

The Twelfth Doctor’s introduction in Deep Breath is a prime example of this principle. He was new; he was muddled; he was undeniably Scottish—but by the end of the episode,

New Series. New Doctor. Deep Breath… A Spoiler-free look at Peter Capaldi’s First Doctor Who Episode

  • HeyUGuys
You felt it when 2,000 Whovians cheered and applauded. You knew when the unstoppable force of Peter Capaldi, Jenna Coleman and Steven Moffat stood for a standing ovation, and when they were pulled left, right and centre outside for autographs and pictures. You knew it when people cheered Capaldi’s name for just coming up on the screens.

The Doctor Who fandom has accepted Peter Capaldi.

HeyUGuys were lucky enough to attend the very first screening of Deep Breath in Cardiff, this episode is the series 8 opener and the full debut of a certain new Doctor. The first point on a whistle stop world tour of the new episode, St. David’s Hall was rammed with hardcore fans dressed as their favourite Doctors, companions, even the Tardis. There were age-old fans and 4-year olds dressed in Fezs and bow ties, wielding their trusty Sonic Screwdrivers. There were 18-24 year olds – seemingly

The HeyUGuys Interview: Stephen Tompkinson Gives Us the Lowdown on Harrigan

  • HeyUGuys
Before British cop drama Harrigan hits our cinema screens on September 20, we had the great pleasure of speaking to the lead role, Detective Harrigan himself, Stephen Tompkinson.

Harrigan – which is director Vince Woods debut feature film, is set in a bleak, 1970s North East, where a close-to-retirement cop Barry Harrigan returns to his hometown with a score to settle. Tompkinson, who has made a name for himself in films such as Brassed Off and TV shows such as In Deep, speaks of his own experience in Britain from the time this film is set, and what attracted him to the role – while he reflects on what has been a triumphant, and certainly expansive career.

So what first attracted you to the role of Harrigan?

Vincent Woods, the film’s director, came to see me the year before we started shooting. I was doing live theatre in Newcastle in a play by my friend Shaun Prendergast,

Entertainment One Developing Stanley Kubrick Scripts Into TV Movie & Mini-Series

More than 13 years have come and gone since legendary auteur Stanley Kubrick passed away, shortly after finishing his preferred cut of Eyes Wide Shut. Entertainment One (eOne) now has plans to take a pair of Kubrick scripts that never made it to production – titled Downslope as well as God Fearing Man – and transform them into the basis for a new TV movie and series, respectively.

There are several eOne-backed series currently on the air, including AMC’s western Hell on Wheels and NBC’s Saving Hope. Kubrick’s own son-in-law, Philip Hobbs, is producing through his Philco Films, alongside Steve Lanning (In Deep). Adam Blumberg and Michael Rosenberg (Skins, Hung) will oversee the dual projects.

Here is a description of the respective Kubrick-penned ventures (via Deadline):

EastEnders' Nick Berry goes back to his old Wicks | Media Monkey

Strike a light cor blimey guv'nor! Simon "Wicksy" Wicks is back in Albert Square! But blink and you might miss the former EastEnders heartthrob who will appear right at the end of the credits of Friday night's show. Assuming they don't shrink the screen to puff some nonsense on BBC3. Wicks, played by Nick Berry – who has spent the last few years being a house husband – returns to say farewell to his mum, Pat. Simon's brother David – played by erstwhile Holby City star Michael French – is also back, having returned to Walford on New Year's Day after 15 years away. Emotional stuff, no doubt. But will his return signal another No 1 hit single? It could be worse – Berry could be returning to In Deep. Or, perish the thought, Harbour LightsHeartbeat without the pulse.

Whatever happened to former EastEnder Nick Berry? | Media Monkey

Time to close that file marked "whatever happened to Nick Berry?" The former EastEnders star is the Daily Mirror's page three, er, fella after he turned up on ITV1's breakfast show Lorraine. New show to promote, Nick? Apparently not. B-rod has retired from acting and has been a stay-at-home dad for the past eight years, reports the paper. "I had a good innings and I just thought, I want to be at home now," said the actor. "I have been doing the school run and I'm a very proud gardener." And if you missed his final BBC1 series, In Deep – let's be honest, who didn't? – you can catch it on DVD now. Perfect daytime viewing, Monkey imagines.

Paul Marcus obituary

Versatile producer and director who made Prime Suspect an enduring success

Paul Marcus, who has died of cancer aged 56, was best known for his award-winning work as producer of the television series Prime Suspect. However, most of his career was devoted to directing, for theatre and cinema, as well as for TV.

The first series of the police drama Prime Suspect, written by Lynda La Plante and following Dci Jane Tennison (played by Helen Mirren) as she led her first major murder investigation, was aired by Granada TV in 1991, to wide acclaim. Marcus was asked by Granada to take over as producer on the second series. He bravely invited an unknown director, John Strickland, to oversee the drama, but his choice proved justified, with Prime Suspect 2 matching the success of the first series and receiving an International Emmy award as well as Bafta recognition.
