I review the first four episodes of BBC America's paranormal thriller, starring John Simm and Mira Sorvino...
HOMELAND! THE FLASH! CONSTANTINE! GOTHAM! More!
Fluffy time-travel historical romance for girls? THINK AGAIN!
Was this the best episode in a very, very long time...?
Syfy have a new zombie series; but it's not as good as THE WALKING DEAD, of course...
Summer 2014's almost over, but which TV show kept you most entertained?
"[A man] has to know how to grab me. Nothing's sexier than a confident guy who isn't afraid to dive into the physical and who knows what to do with a woman's body."
"I am absolutely over the moon at being chosen to play the Doctor's new companion. I just can't wait to get started. The show is such a massive phenomenon that I can't quite believe I am going to be a part of it. Matt Smith is an incredible actor and it is going to be so much fun to act alongside him."
"When she auditioned alongside Matt we knew we had something special."
"We saw some amazing actresses for this part, but when Karen came through the door the game was up. Funny, and clever, and gorgeous, and sexy. Or Scottish, which is the quick way of saying it. A generation of little girls will want to be her. And a generation of little boys will want them to be her too."
"The outstanding quality of the Doctor Who scripts from Russell T. Davies and the on-screen dynamic that David Tennant brings to the role are a magic combination for our viewers. Russell's spin-off series Torchwood is already our highest rated show on the channel and I know the fans will follow these new specials with equal passion and support. We’re thrilled to bring this iconic show to BBC America, home of the best British sci-fi programming on television."
"If anybody thinks [bringing Summer Glau onto Dollhouse] hasn't occurred to me already then they have not met me. I mentioned it to her before [T:tSCC] was cancelled. I was like, 'You know, we should get you in the 'house.' But first we have to come up with something that works."
"Summer would be perfect to play an active, but she's done that [type of role] a lot. I'd rather see her play someone who talks too much. The most fun I have is when I get somebody who's good and comfortable at doing something, and then I make them do something else. Summer said to me, 'I would like to play a normal girl before I die of extreme old age.'"
"I think the finale can be looked at both as an end and also as a springboard to a new part of the story—that's what I intended, at least. I wanted to bring an end to many of the questions that I'd raised in the episodes previous but it's dramatically unsound to try and create a rogue's gallery of scenes just to check off every narrative box. I knew there was a chance we were being cancelled but I also needed to let the network see where we could take the story if given the chance. So I tried to close one door while opening another. There's obviously different opinions as to how successful I was hitting that target. But I'm very proud of the episode." Continue reading...
"Yeah, we are planning on making a movie. We're talking at the moment. What it is we’re not quite sure. But yes, there are plans afoot to make a film."
"With its combination of fantasy, humour and adventure Merlin has firmly established itself as a Saturday evening family fixture. It's great to be working again with the brilliant Shine team who have put together a thrilling second series."
"We're thrilled to be producing another series of Merlin for the BBC. It's going to be bigger, bolder and more action-packed than ever, with great new villains, white knuckle fight sequences and hilarious comic fun for the whole family to enjoy."
