Everyone’s favorite Judge and embodiment of The Law is back. Currently in the middle of what looks to be a revival of Dredd comics, probably thanks in part to the cult-hit of a movie, here we have a telling of his first adventures, his Year One. Find out if it’s any good with your Major Spoilers review!
The BBC has released the first official publicity image of The Doctor and his new companion, played by Jenna-Louise Coleman.
What happens when a kid writes a Doctor Who script in a BBC contest? Let’s just say the Doctor and Amy won’t be blinking much in this three minute short.
For those who are dying to see what Matt Smith, the 11th Doctor Who, looks like in costume, you might want to take the jump.
Yup, it’s time for another smattering of television rumors and tid-bits with an order of steak fries and a tub of mayonnaise on the side.Â And by steak fries, I mean Megan Fox, and by mayonnaise, I mean get your mind out of the gutter.
With all the hoopla surrounding the young Matt Smith as the new Doctor in the next season of Doctor Who, the BBC finally unveiled who his assistant will be – and she’s even younger than he is.Â Karen Gillian, a 21-year-old actress, will tag along with the Doctor on his next round of adventures that will air next year on the BBC.
Writer and executive producer Steven Moffat said they saw some “amazing actresses” but Gillan “walked through the door the game was up”.
He described her as “funny, and clever, and gorgeous, and sexy. Or Scottish, which is the quick way of saying it”.
“A generation of little girls will want to be her. And a generation of little boys will want them to be her too,” he added.
Even though she has appeared in a few shows, this is her first high profile project.
Matt Smith, the newly named Doctor Who, is getting quite a different deal than his predecessor David Tennant, signing a three year contract for Â£600,000.Â The contract also gives Smith the option of signing on for an additional two years.Â The new Doctor’s fee is significantly less than Tennant’s Â£1,000,000 a year deal, which is probably due to the slow down in the economy and little to do with the popularity of Doctor Who.
Smith, who will become the eleventh Time Lord, is the youngest ever actor to play the 903-year-old doctor. Some critics branded him ‘the toddler in the Tardis’ and it’s been rumoured that he wasn’t everyone’s top choice for the part. James Nesbitt had been a favourite, having worked with new showrunner Steven Moffat previously.
Smith begins his role as the Doctor sometime next year.
The BBC today announced that Matt Smith has been cast in the role of the Doctor in the iconic BBC series Doctor Who. Smith will be the eleventh Time Lord and will take over from David Tennant who leaves the show at the end of 2009. He will be seen in the forthcoming fifth series that will be broadcast in 2010.
The fifth series will also have a new lead writer and Executive Producer in the form of the BAFTA award winning writer Steven Moffat who is taking over from Russell T Davies. Moffat will be joined by Piers Wenger who will be the new Executive Producer for BBC Wales making the show.
