Stars: Peter Capaldi, Jenna Coleman, Michelle Gomez Writer: Steven Moffat Director: Hettie Macdonald Original Telecast: September 19th & 26th, 2014 Network: BBC America The first season of DOCTOR WHO where a new regeneration of The Doctor is introduced is always a bit of a dicey phase. The Doctor is never really who is he is going to be with his new face, and you kind of have to get around all of the more unstable parts of his personality post regeneration. Having said that I did enjoy Peter Capaldi’s first season as the new 12th Doctor. The writing wasn’t completely …Read On »

THE STRAIN: Actor David Bradley on Season 2 – Exclusive Interview

Actor David Bradley is dancing with the kind of gusto associated with Dickensian revels. His costar on THE STRAIN, Kevin Durand, is immortalizing the action with his cell phone. It’s perfectly appropriate – this is a party thrown by Fox and FX for the Television Critics Association press tour at West Hollywood’s Soho House and there’s music blaring – but whether one is most familiar with Bradley from his STRAIN role as determined and lethal vampire hunter Abraham Setrakian, the vile Walder Frey from GAME OF THRONES, actor William Hartnell aka the First Doctor Who from AN ADVENTURE IN SPACE …Read On »

There seems to be something about Eleanor Tomlinson that makes people think of the past. The English actress has played some contemporary characters, but she’s often cast in period pieces, including her film debut THE ILLUSIONIST, followed by the features ALICE IN WONDERLAND (Victorian England) and JACK THE GIANT SLAYER (unspecified medieval England) and the miniseries DEATH COMES TO PEMBERLEY (Jane Austen’s England) and THE WHITE QUEEN (the War of the Roses). Now Tomlinson is starring in the remake of POLDARK, originally dramatized by the BBC 1975-1977 from Winston Graham’s novels; the new version is adapted by Debbie Horsfield. The …Read On »
