A ‘CBeebies Bedtime Story’ with David Tennant

Even though I will forever be of the mindset that Benedict Cumberbatch has the insane ability to do anything, I now think he has company. David Tennant just may be challenging him for the top spot with his most endearing role of reading a bedtime story on CBeebies. Imagine the ability to ‘drift off’ to […]

Matt Smith goes from Time Lord to Terminator for reboot

What could possibly be better training for Matt Smith in his upcoming role in the new Terminator feature than being a Time Lord? Nothing, actually. Think about it. Both sci-fi franchises are built around the premise of man vs. robot. Admittedly, the Terminator versions are just a bit scarier but I might be willing to […]

Get ready for ‘Doctor Who 8′ with a brilliant “previously on…” trailer

Ok, stay with me here. Doctor Who is like reading a Robert Ludlum book. Averaging about 900 pages per book, I always found his writing brilliant, but incredibly complex where it was quite easy to miss something. I would often have to re-read chapters if I had put the book down for awhile in order […]

Does Julian Fellowes have a point re: Downton Abbey 5?

Historically, from a Doctor Who broadcast standpoint, the concept of same day transmission has long been the subject of what has sometimes been a rather heated debate over the years. While this wasn’t even in the wheelhouse in the pre-Internet days, with today’s over the top social media fascination with the likes of Facebook, Twitter […]

‘Doctor Who’ parody gold from The Hillywood Show

The genius that is The Hillywood Show has struck again with a brilliant parody of Doctor Who. The comedy sister duo of Hilly & Hannah Hindi specialize in Hollywood movies and pop culture parodies. It would be hard to top their Twilight parody, but they just might have done it with this incredible send up […]

David Tennant returns for Broadchurch 2 as Gracepoint premieres this Fall on Fox

It will be all David Tennant on both sides of the pond beginning this fall when Gracepoint, Fox’s American remake of Broadchurch, premieres.

Former Doctor Who companion to head ABC comedy this Fall

If anyone still questions whether or not British situation comedy is better than its’ American counterpart, one only has to look to the list of pilot comedies coming from American broadcast networks this Fall for verification. In a pitch that must have sounded like it came directly from the lips of Buck Henry in The […]

Peter Capaldi on course to be ‘one of the best ever’…

With recent word out of London that the BBC is “thrilled” and “delighted” with their initial looks at the early completed episodes with Peter Capaldi as the Twelfth Doctor, let’s all put the Downton Abbey countdown calendar on the back burner for the moment, resign ourselves to the fact that Sherlock probably isn’t happening in […]

Mark Gatiss goes from Mycroft to Tycho Nestoris in this weeks Game of Thrones

Full disclosure up front. I’ve never seen an episode of HBO’s Game of Thrones. Unfortunately, this goes in the stack of DVD boxed sets of series television gold such as Mad Men, Breaking Bad and West Wing that I have never seen in their entirety. Before you get up and leave the room, I have […]

Remember, don’t blink if you see a Weeping Angel

Sometimes, the Internets is a reminder that too many people have way too much time on their hands. Every once in awhile, however, it is the home to video greatness. Such is the case for a couple of video pieces that come from the mind palace of John Smith. You might remember a pretty amazing […]
