Things We Saw Today: David Bradley as William Hartnell As The Doctor


The 50th Anniversary excitement continues. This image was officially released after Paris Comic Con last week, and features David Bradley, who you may know a Argus Filch and Walder Frey, in the role of William Hartnell for the film about Doctor Who‘s beginnings, An Adventure in Space and Time. That is some convincing makeup. (via Doctor Who TV)

  • The NFL may soon get its first permanent female referee in the form of training program finalist Sarah Thomas. (via The Frisky)
  • Maria of Middle Earth News is kicking off a series where she will analyze women and the roles of the few women in the Lord of the Rings, The Silmarillion, and The Hobbit.  She’ll be starting with Éowyn. “I am no man!”

You can get these pewter Doctor Who Monopoly tokens from Donald James on Etsy. Check out the shop for other nerdy pewter charms too, from AT-AT’s to Zelda. Now to exterminate all opponents to my real-estate empire. (via Nerd Approved)

  • Siskoid’s Blog of Geekery has cast all the Doctors with muppets. You know 10 has to be the muppet with the best hair.
  • Artist George Pérez has signed exclusively with BOOM! Studios. The respected illustrator talked to  Comic Book Resources about the shift.
  • Take a peek at Studio Ghibli’s new film from Isao TakahataKaguya-hime no Monogatari. The film is based on the well-know japanese folk The Tale of the Bamboo Cutter, but Takahata seems to be mixing it up with the animation, despite the traditional story. (via Bleeding Cool)

This fascinating plastic cutaway model of the USS Enterprise shows you all the rooms on the ship, even those never shown in Star Trek. Check out close ups at Nerd Approved.

    Er…what?

    Is it possible to analyze the women of The Hobbit? I mean, literally, were there ANY women at all in that book? I mean, I know they put a few into the movies, but I just read it out loud a year or two ago and I genuinely don’t remember doing a single female voice the whole time.

    I know I don’t remember any women from ANY race being in The Hobbit, to the best of my recollection. I think it’s why Peter Jackson put that one female Elf into The Hobbit movie earlier.

    David Bradley also plays Walder Frey in Game of Thrones. Not the most popular character in the series at the moment (but deliciously awesome!)…
    He does seem to channel no 1 pretty well so I’ll try to scrub my brain clean when I watch the special. :)

    Wait, is that a longwise striped scarf? Because I’m still working on my traditional 4th doctor scarf, but I got this one covered. http://ravel.me/electrasteph/mrs2

    It is going to be hard to scrub Frey and Filch from my brain (and the two merge a bit, since they’re both so petty and nasty), but that makeup is really impressive, so I’m hopeful. :-)

    The spiders, I believe they were indicated to be female.

    With actual plot time, no, but Bilbo’s mom, Belladonna Took, gets mentioned quite a bit at the beginning. I’ve always liked the theory that Gandalf came looking for HER to go on the quest, and then had to settle for his friend’s less adventurous (at first) son.
