Doctor Who

Exclusive Interview: David Bradley on AN ADVENTURE IN SPACE AND TIME and being the first Who – PART 1


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 »

BROADCHURCH made its American debut  this week on BBC America. The eight-part series, airing Wednesday nights, previously riveted audiences in Britain. Created by Chris Chibnall, BROADCHURCH shows how the murder of an eleven-year-old boy devastates the whole community of a small English coastal town. The crime takes a personal toll on its two primary investigators, out-of-town transfer Detective Inspector Alec Hardy, played by David Tennant, and local police detective Ellie Miller, played by Olivia Colman. Olivia is livid when she finds that Alec has been handed the job she was promised, but this is nothing compared to her shock when […]Read On »

Stars: Matt Smith, Karen Gillan, Arthur Darvill Writer: Steven Moffat  Director:  Nick Hurran    Network: BBC America, airs Saturday nights Original Telecast: September 22, 2012 “The Angels Take Manhattan” is a tough episode of DOCTOR WHO –  in fact it might be the toughest since Matt Smith took over as the Eleventh Doctor. This episode is the big farewell to Amy (Karen Gillan) and Rory (Arthur Darvill), and since Amy has been the Doctor’s companion since his first episode in this newer incarnation, this has been a good run for the two of them. There’s also been a lot of change […]Read On »

TV Review: DOCTOR WHO – Series 7 – “The Power of Three” – Review #2

Stars: Matt Smith, Karen Gillan, Arthur Darvill Writer: Chris Chibnall Director:  Douglas Mackinnon   Network: BBC America, airs Saturday nights Original Telecast: September 22, 2012 Not every episode of DOCTOR WHO can be absolute gold. There have to be slow episodes, talking heads episodes, and yes even somewhat dull episodes. “The Power of Three” is not the best episode in the new run, but it’s not the worst since the series restarted in 2005. It’s just kind of a yawn episode with some amusing moments here and there. I really feel that since the Ponds are leaving next episode that this […]Read On »
