  • Doctor Who Dark Water review: Gender reassignment and life after death launch a challenging finale

    Since the 1980s there’s been a call for a female Doctor whenever the part is recast. I would have no problem with that, but woe betide the showrunner who makes that decision. By way of compensation, Steven Moffat delivers the next best thing. He’s had the balls to reassign the gender of the Master. Surely, this puts paid to any whingers who, for reasons that escape me, have labelled Moffat a misogynistic writer. He’s been creating strong women characters ever since Nancy, the 1940s single mum in The Empty Child (2005). Now, surely, he’s outed himself as a feminist and...

The newly found programs—which introduce the character of Alistair Lethbridge-Stewart, better known to audiences...

But now it has been revealed that Jon Pertwee was a real-life secret agent years before he donned the Time Lord’s cape. The actor, who died in 1996 aged 76, was a senior intelligence agent during the Second World War and reported directly to Winston Churchill. He was also recommended for another role by James Bond creator Ian Fleming – and proved to be an expert in using a range of 007-like gadgets, including a smoking pipe that fired bullets and handkerchiefs containing secret maps....

Matt Smith was spotted filming scenes for the festive episode in Bristol late last night (Monday) and it seems that he's gone back in time. Wearing a large top hat and an old-fashioned suit, the actor was transported back to the 1890's along with his co-star Jenna-Louise Coleman.

    This may be just a vanity post, but I'm really kinda pissed off at Russell T. Davies' portrayal of the US Tea Party in the Torchwood Season 4 series.This season, the series takes place in the US, and is about a conspiracy that prevents everyone in the world from dying. As usual, the series makes (IMHO) good comments on what would happen to society if such an event were to occur. RTD picked some really good US actors for the new roles, and their skill pushes the story along. However, the story now "feels" more like an American drama than...

    China has been cracking down on dissent of late, as the recent detainment of artist Ai Weiwei suggests. But the latest guidance on television programming from the State Administration of Radio Film and Television in China borders on the surreal – or, rather, an attack against the surreal. New guidelines issued on March 31 discourage plot lines that contain elements of "fantasy, time-travel, random compilations of mythical stories, bizarre plots, absurd techniques, even propagating feudal superstitions, fatalism and reincarnation, ambiguous moral lessons, and a lack of positive thinking." “The government says … TV dramas shouldn’t have characters that travel back...

    It almost sounds right: A Dr. Who Christmas. Maybe because it sounds a lot like A Dr. Seuss Christmas. Or something. But the Brits have decided to take their beloved-but-still-somewhat-confusing-to-Americans character, Dr. Who, and give him a good old fashioned holiday movie, based on the classic A Christmas Carol , written by Steven Moffat, creator of the recent Masterpiece Mystery hit Sherlock, and set to debut on BBC America on Christmas Day. Moffat described his sci-fi holiday mashup this way: “Oh, we’re going for broke with this one. It’s all your favorite Christmas movies at once, in an hour, with...

    Fright Night was released in 1985, had a few recognizable names as stars, took a decent $25mil (for the time), but only real horror fans recognize it. It wasn’t a great movie, undeserving of the classic status of the other 80’s slasher franchises like Nightmare, Friday, or Halloween. But since those have all been summarily ruined, particularly Nightmare, it’s time that a movie that can be improved upon and changed without offending the delicate sensibilities of too many people get a shot.

Left wing scriptwriters hired by the BBC during the 1980s tried to inspire a 'Tardis revolution' by using Doctor Who as propaganda to undermine Baroness Thatcher. In one series they caricatured the then Prime Minister as a vicious and egotistical alien ruler who banned outward displays of unhappiness among her downtrodden people and used a secret police to oppress dissidents. .........................................................

    When Doctor Who returns this Saturday on BBC America, it's going to be the biggest change in the show since it was re-launched in 2005. Sure, the Doctor has already regenerated once since then (from Christopher Eccleston to David Tennant), but at the time the man behind the show, Russell T. Davies, was still at the helm and companion Billie Piper stuck around, which provided some continuity. With this season's premiere, "The Eleventh Hour," everything is new: from Doctor (Matt Smith) to companion (Karen Gillan as Amy Pond) to executive producer (revered Who writer Steven Moffat).

BBC1's popular sci-fi series sees the debut of new Doctor, Matt Smith and his assistant Karen Gillan, and is likely to follow the success of the previous series which starred David Tennant as the famous Time Lord. The new trailer was screened in Cardiff and promises lots more thrills and spills as well as the return of some of the Doctor's infamous enemies.

Steven Moffat is looking to restore the BBC icon to its classic roots that some are describing as an effort to integrate fans of the original "Doctor Who" series.
