Stars: Matt Smith, Karen Gillan, Arthur Darvill Writer: Chris Chibnall  Director:  Saul Metzstein  Network: BBC America, airs Saturday nights Original Telecast: September 8, 2012 So after last week’s premiere of DOCTOR WHO, there are a lot of plot elements  left hanging in the air.

But, now that we had a slightly darker and heavier hand in the “Asylum” it’s time to lighten things up a […]Read On »

Lara Pulver in SHERLOCK - Series 2 | ©2012 BBC/PBS

Lara Pulver has just had the pleasure of working with writer and producer Steven Moffat for his new series of SHERLOCK, which will be airing in the U.S. in May.

Here’s what the actress had to say to ASSIGNMENT X … “He may be calling me right now,” she jokes about Moffat calling […]Read On »

Matt Smith in DOCTOR WHO - Series 6 - Episode 12 | ©2011 BBC

Steven Moffat, who was already on the DOCTOR WHO writing staff, took the reins as DOCTOR WHO show runner and producer in 2010. He brought in Matt Smith as the 11th Doctor and created the character of Amy Pond played by Karen Gillan. One of Moffat’s most convoluted contributions to WHO has been the character of River Song (Alex Kingston) who is the daughter of a companion and the future lover of The Doctor himself. As the sixth season continues more is uncovered about Rivers’ past and it all ends with a wedding (or at least the finale’s title implies […]Read On »
