The film has Jones playing Ternan from the age of eighteen, when she meets Charles Dickens, played by director Fiennes, through her thirties. The bulk of the movie is about how the eventually intimate relationship unfolds between young Nelly and the much older, famous and married author in 1800sEngland. Jones, originally […]Read On »

Director Terry McDonough is the lucky man who was given the somewhat unenviable task of bringing the world of 1960’s BBC and the world of the first incarnation of DOCTOR WHO to life for the new TV movie AN ADVENTURE IN SPACE AND TIME. McDonough is a WHO fan himself, and he took a few minutes to give ASSIGNMENT X a taste of what went into creating that time period and that specific world for today’s audiences. ASSIGNMENT X: Can you talk about the process you went through to re-create the TARDIS and the Daleks on a limited budget? TERRY […]Read On »

British actor David Bradley has just hit a fandom trifecta (there isn’t a the fandom trifecta – there will never be just three): he was the unhappily non-magical custodian Filch in the HARRY POTTER films, he continues as the indelible Walder Frey, host of the Red Wedding, on HBO’s GAME OF THRONES, and now he’s part of the DOCTOR WHO universe. Once upon a time, hard as it may be to recall and longer ago than many Whovians have been alive, DOCTOR WHO quite simply did not exist. It was brought into being in 1963 by a team including producer […]Read On »
