'Doctor Who': Steven Moffat on New Companion Jenna-Louise Coleman and Landing Neil Cross

March 30th, 2013 12:30pm EDT
Doctor Who
Whovians rejoice! It's time for more Doctor Who, and as fans eagerly await fresh adventures for the Eleventh Doctor and new companion Clara Oswald, BFTV stole a few minutes with series boss Steven Moffat to ask him about the ever-changing phenomenon that is Who - and how he got Luther creator Neil Cross to join the party.

This year is also the 50th anniversary of the franchise, and Moffat explained why he thinks the show has lasted for so long. "You can start watching Doctor Who at any point in its history. You don't have to catch up with the rest of it," he said. "It's a very simple myth....

Jack Davenport Takes Center Stage

January 30th, 2012 2:20pm EST
Smash
NBC's Smash is full of stars, but the one you don't know - that you should know - is British actor Jack Davenport.

In the ambitious new series (starting February 6 at 10), he plays Derek Wills, director of the Marilyn Monroe musical and not the kind of man who'll be winning a congeniality award anytime soon. Derek is complimentary one minute and cringeworthy the next. He's the kind of boss we'd all hate to have but whose results can't be dismissed either. It's a role where many actors could focus on the negative and make him a tyrannical, unlikeable mess. Davenport, however, brings ...

TV on DVD: 'Doctor Who' & 'The Game' Reviewed

December 8th, 2011 1:00pm EST
Doctor Who
This week in TV on DVD, we look at new seasons for two cult favorites: the BBC's Doctor Who: The Complete Sixth Series and CBS DVD's The Game: The Fourth Season.

Doctor Who: The Complete Sixth Series (BBC Home Entertainment)

The Show: Matt Smith's edition of Doctor Who has endeared itself to fans and critics alike. Smith's second full series in the TARDIS is full of energy - and incredibly complicated, as we learn the truth of River Song's (Alex Kingston) true identity and wonder about The Doctor's final fate.

When Who is good, it's really good. The opening two-parter ("The Impossi...

Doctor Who - Season 6 Episode 9 - Night Terrors

Doctor Who-0013-20110516-41.jpg
After last week’s River Song/Melody Pond reveal, the Powers That Be have allowed us all a breath. Thank Heavens! The roller coaster ride of the “Let’s Kill Hitler” episode nearly did me in! I’m glad to say that this week’s episode is much less all encompassing. Although if you were afraid of puppets before, you won’t be attending any Punch and Judy fairs in the near future!

In a dark, but nevertheless, rather ordinary, row of council apartments, a bunch of very ordinary tenants prepare for the evening. In one apartment, however, a young boy named George balks at going to sleep. He’s fright...

Doctor Who Season 6 Episode 8 – ‘Let’s Kill Hitler’

September 6th, 2011 6:55pm EDT
Doctor_Who
After a summer off, while the producers of Doctor Who apparently awaited the growing of corn, the Doctor has returned. And what a return it is! Finally, we learn how Melody Pond became River Song … and it’s a heck of a story!

“Let’s see, you’ve got a time machine, I’ve got a gun. What the hell, let’s kill Hitler.”

We begin with Rory and Amy barreling through a lush corn field, with Amy shouting coordinates. With a flourish, they pull into a clearing, and before you can say, “Doctor Who?” the blue box has appeared. A petulant Doctor demands to know why they have been signaling him with cro...

TV on DVD: 'Doctor Who: Series Six, Part 1'

July 30th, 2011 6:00pm EDT
Doctor Who
If you're still missing Doctor Who, and BBC Books' dozen recently-released novels aren't enough, BBC Home Entertainment has sent home Doctor Who: Series Six, Part 1 on Blu-Ray and DVD. Here's my review of the DVD version.

The Show

This is the second series of Doctor Who under the stewardship of Steven Moffat, and I have to say that I've enjoyed it. To be fair, I've liked Moffat's work since Coupling, but I don't see what's apparently got some Whovians up in arms about this series. That doesn't mean that they're wrong, but I didn't feel as major a sea change as others did when Moffat t...
