"This isn’t a show exclusively for progressive liberals."

Departing "Doctor Who" showrunner Steven Moffatt doesn't always choose the best words, and this time he probably should have kept them to himself.

Whovians, Here’s What Jodie Whittaker’s 13th Doctor Will Really Look Like

We got a brief glimpse of Jodie Whittaker as the Doctor way back when the news first broke, but she was mostly obscured by a (admittedly awesome) coat/hoodie combo, but her actual look as the 13th Doctor is so much more.

Has Doctor Who‘s Next Companion Been Revealed?

Things We Saw Today: The Lego Batman Theme Song Is “Gaston” for Pop-Punk Gym Rats

Warner Brothers has posted the theme song from The Lego Batman Movie, and it is pleasingly ludicrous, with lines like "Who can chokehold a bear? (BATMAN!)", "Who does the sickest backflips? (BATMAN!)" and "Who always pays their taxes? (BATMAN!)"

It’s Official: The Next Series of Doctor Who Will Be the Last For Peter Capaldi

It's easy to be ambivalent about Doctor Who news these days, as the show seems to happen so infrequently it almost dares you to stop caring. However, when I stop and think about Peter Capaldi's run as a whole, I really, really enjoyed both his take on the Doctor as well as many of his stories.

Breaking Bad Actress Lands Lead In The Broadchurch Remake While The Show Gets Renamed For U.S. Viewers

Good News Everyone!

Not too long ago we learned David Tennant will be reprising his role as Detective Inspector Alec Hardy in Fox's Broadchurch remake (he'll also be playing an American). Now two more have been added to the cast, including Breaking Bad's Anna Gunn. While I'm not kean on Tennant playing an American in this remake, it seems to make sense considering the show's location. And that also means a name change for the series.

BBC Writer Explains How Torchwood Lost It With Miracle Day


Your mileage may vary but I really hated Torchwood: Miracle Day. It took what was once a really unique sci-fi show with interesting characters and turned it into a bland U.S. extension with awful character development.

BBC America Acquires the Rights to Broadchurch, Starring Ten and Rory Williams. I Mean David Tennant and Arthur Darvill. Sorry.

Hello Sweetie

And now we've found out that it's been picked up by BBC America to air in the States as well. Why is that news relevant to our American readers? Only because Doctor Who's David Tennant and Arthur Darvill are both in it. We thought you'd like to know.
