  1. What Do the Stars and Original Creator of Doctor Who Have to Say About a Female Doctor?

    Essay

    This past Wednesday, many of us chatted about Steven Moffat's remarks concerning casting a female in the titular role of Doctor Who. It seemed like a good idea to delve into the opinions of other people who have been involved in the program, as well as some of those who've played the Time Lord hero who makes a habit of transforming his body in order to avoid death.

  8. That Time Matt Smith Said He’d Do Who In New Zealand, and Peter Jackson Said “Sure”

    I will make it legal!

    Well, we've already had one Doctor Who related post today, and one Peter Jackson one, so you'll just have to tough it out while we tell you about this one. See, we already knew that Matt Smith, in an interview with New Zealand-based Waikato Times, what anyone would have said when asked whether you'd like to film something in the questioner's home country. He said "No, of course not. I hate New Zealand and its wealth of unparalleled natural beauty." No, of course not, he said: "I think it would be an absolutely wonderful place to film Doctor Who... Let's get Peter Jackson to direct [an episode] and go and make it in New Zealand. I would love to, I will campaign endlessly to come over and film there."

  9. Here, Take a Look at These The Hobbit Pics [Featuring Radagast the Brown!] to Tide You Over ’til Tomorrow’s Trailer

    My Precious!

    The new The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey trailer doesn't hit the Web until tomorrow, but luckily for us Warner Bros. has released some new pics to help tide us over 'til then. Some of them are ones Hobbit-fans (Hobbiteers?) will have seen already, but there's one Middle Earth denizen we're seeing for the first time: The wizard Radagast the Brown, played by Sylvester McCoy (aka Doctor Who's Seven).

  10. Sylvester McCoy to Play Radagast the Brown? Wait… Radagast in The Hobbit?

    The buzz about Sylvester McCoy, veteran of British television (including a stint playing the Doctor), lately has been that he is in talks to play a certain part in The Hobbit, though definitely "not the Bilbo role." (In other interesting facts: he also once played the part of the Fool in King Lear, against, yes, Ian McKellen as the titular monarch.) Bleeding Cool, however, has a "trustworthy source" that has pegged his negotiations as revolving around a much more obscure character: Radagast the Brown. Why do we care about negotiations for a bit part in The Hobbit? Because we're obssesed? Well, yes. Of course. But also because Radagast doesn't actually appear in The Hobbit, but if he does, it gives us a big hint on one of the movies' big spectacles. This is one of those prime examples of how Tolkien was an incredible historian and linguist but perhaps a bad novelist.
