Christopher Eccleston Says the Arts Are the “Tip of an Iceberg” When It Comes to Diversity and Inclusion

Diversity and inclusion go beyond race and even gender. Class is an important indicator of the advantages (or lack thereof) a person will have, and this can be compounded by race and gender to make things even worse for someone. In a recent interview, Christopher Eccleston talks about why it's important to think about this when it comes to diversity in the arts, and why the arts should only be a first step.

Russell T. Davies stepped down as showrunner for Doctor Who five years after ushering the series back into the public consciousness in 2005. And hey, someone realized 2015 is the 10th anniversary of that relaunch so why don't we see what he has to say about that...

A New Thor: The Dark World Trailer Has Arrived From Asgard (Okay, From YouTube)

Excelsior!

The new trailer for Thor: The Dark World is packed with action, magical prison cells, Idris Elba, Frigga battling the Dark Elf Malekith, and the expected number of threatening voice overs. Based on descriptions we heard last month it seems to be the same trailer that aired at Comic-Con, but for those of us who weren't there it's certainly worth a watch. The new trailer provides more insight into the battles and major conflict of the movie, while the last trailer focused a bit more on the state of Thor and Jane Foster's relationship, and, of course, Loki's hair. Thor: The Dark World is set to release on November 8th of this year. (via ComingSoon.net) Previously in Thor: The Dark World

In other brief Doctor Who news, Jenna-Louise Coleman has decided to officially change her credited screen name to Jenna Coleman. And my fast-typing hands thank her for it.
