Doctor Who series 6 trailer

T-minus 21 days and counting. Sounds so much closer than if you say three weeks to the day. Here’s the just-released new piece of brilliance from Steven Moffat filled with lots of easter eggs (just in time for Easter). You need to look closely, but they are there, as explained in the Daily Record. Enjoy.

Karen Gillan to play Jean Shrimpton, world’s first supermodel, in BBC4 biopic (sounds like a Variety headline, doesn’t it?)

In her first down-to-earth starring role, Karen Gillan (Amy Pond) will star as Jean Shrimpton, 60’s iconic supermodel, in We’ll Take Manhatten for BBC4 in 2012. Produced by Kudos Film and Television (Life on Mars, Ashes to Ashes, Spooks), filming will begin in May for a, most likely, 2012 premiere.

Torchwood: Miracle Day sets U.S. premiere date and the return of Eve Myles (Gwen)

Extraordinarily welcome news comes that the U.S. television premiere of the fourth season of Torchwood will be 8 July on the Starz network. From the early look of things, this looks like it will be something well worth waiting for. According to series creator Russell T. Davies previously revealed that the mysterious occurrence will lead to “a crisis that wil affect everyone on the planet”. Davies continued to explain that “…not a single person on Earth dies. The old stay old. It’s great news for some people, but globally it’s an instant population boom. Earth relies on people dying. Suddenly you’re affecting everyone on the planet. That’s where the Torchwood team comes in.

In a bit of “you can take the girl out of Torchwood but you can’t take Torchwood out of the girl” news, Eve Myles (Gwen) will return for the fourth series alongside John Barrowman as Captain Jack Harkness.

    the americans will ruin this the same way they do every other british series they touch.

    • @Joe…with sadness, I totally agree. Not much from history will tell me otherwise.

    Well, they didn’t. Of course, that’s because Americans only funded it, while the show was still made by Russel T Davies & the other BBC execs & producers.
