Danny DeVito. Danny DeVito.
Please let it be Danny DeVito!
W has a new gig?
As a sci fi fan, I have to say the Dr. Who, bites the big one.
It hasn’t been the same since the Tom Baker years.
I really like the guy and last few seasons, it’s going to stink without him. But I’ll still watch, our entire family loves the shows, it’s family night when Dr. Who’s on. Great show.
As a non sci-fi fan, I LOVE the ‘new’ Dr Who of Eccleston and esp. Tennant.
Remember Dr Who is a family sci fi show, not an adult one.
I thought there were only supposed to be seven...this makes what...ten, eleven iterations of the Time Lord?
They wanted Robert Carlyle (Trainspotting, 28 Weeks Later) but he signed on for the new Stargate seres, to the dismay of the BBC.
The post Baker years (81-89) WERE pretty crap, but the Tennant and Eccleston ‘new’ Dr Who years have been great imo.
I like Tennant as well. Hate to see him go.
If its that guy I’m done with the show permanently.
For all you Freepers living in your Mom’s basement.
As an aside, had a friend that was so into Star Trek, even after he was married, that I always questioned whether he made his wife dress up like those green women.
Or whether he made his TV remote control look like a phaser.
Well, John Entwhistle is dead, otherwise I’d have posted his photo as a choice for the role.
After all, it is the Year of the Ox and he was in The Who.
BLAGO! IT GONNA BE BLAGO I JUST KNOW IT!
I have the Star Trek Enterprise Telephone...................
Yvonne Craig would tend to do that to a fella:
Oh please, please, please...
Well, if you’re in an NHS hospital, everyone really cares about “Doctor, WHERE?”
She played the green gal? No wonder I liked her as Batgirl so much.
Yikes, where is that from? I guess it is true that it’s cold in space.
Saving the Earth (if not the entire universe) is dangerous work. The Doctor lived out over eight hundred years on his home planet and used only one body (the first Doctor). Yet in less than fifty years on Earth, he has managed to use up ten of his twelve cat like lives - ouch!
I thought I’d find you here....

The Kenny Everett Video Show and The Kenny Everett Video Cassette
In 1978, London's Thames Television offered him a new venture, which became the very successful and ground-breaking Kenny Everett Video Show. This was a vehicle for Everett's characters and sketches (his fellow writers were Ray Cameron, Barry Cryer and Dick Vosburgh), interspersed with the latest pop hits, either performed by the artists themselves, or as backing tracks to dance routines by Arlene Phillips' contemporaneously risque dance troupe Hot Gossip (which featured Sarah Brightman).
It was so successful that pop and TV stars queued up to make cameo appearances, including Rod Stewart, Billy Connolly, Kate Bush, Cliff Richard, Freddie Mercury, Terry Wogan and Suzi Quatro (see also "Friends" section below) and classical musicians such as Julian Lloyd Webber(clip).
These shows were also unusual in that there was no studio audience or laughter track. The only reaction sounds were those of the writers, staff and crew (given this small audience the shows were recorded at Thames Television House in small studios normally used for current affairs programmes, rather than at Thames's main site at Teddington, Middlesex.
Everett would often ad lib and deviate from the script; his bloopers were sometimes left in the final cut and on several occasions he pulled the camera around the studio revealing the crew not quite sure what was going to happen next. Quite often the crew were victims of his humour - on one occasion Everett encouraged the crew to sing "Happy Birthday" to a cameraman, presenting to him a cake which he duly pushed in the cameraman's face.
There were also the stories of Captain Kremmen, a science fiction hero voiced by Everett and originally developed for his Capital Radio shows, who travelled the galaxy battling fictional alien menaces, along with his assistant Dr Gitfinger and his voluptuous sidekick Carla. In the first three series these segments were animations created by the Cosgrove-Hall partnership (responsible for the successful children's cartoon series Dangermouse, among many others). In the fourth series (Video Cassette) Kremmen was featured as live action, with Anna Dawson playing Carla; the segments were comedy shorts, rather than the erstwhile stories.
Of course not.
This from someone who refers to Frederick's of Hollywood as a Home Entertainment Center.
Only if she can appropriately fill the costume.
Yvonne Craig was spectacular. Do a search for her pictures and don’t forget a bib!
‘Matt Smith has been named as the actor who will take over from David Tennant in Doctor Who - making him the youngest actor to take on the role.
At 26, Smith is three years younger than Peter Davison when he signed up to play the fifth Doctor in 1981.
Smith will first appear on TV screens as the 11th Doctor in 2010.
He was cast over Christmas and will begin filming for the fifth series of Doctor Who in the summer. Tennant is filming four specials in 2009.
Smith was named as Tennant’s replacement in Saturday’s edition of Doctor Who Confidential on BBC One.’
