Most of the hype surrounding 'Doctor Who' season 8 centers on its newfound leading man Peter Capaldi in the title role, but it seems the eighth cycle of the long-running sci-fi drama has even more new blood on its hands. Meet 'The History Boys' star Samuel Anderson, who will play a vital recurring role in 'Doctor Who' season 8 when it debuts later on this year!
Whether you caught the full series of 'Sherlock' season 3 upon its U.K. airing weeks ago, or the PBS airing of finale installment "His Last Vow" last night, there can be no denying that the Benedict Cumberbatch-Martin Freeman drama left us on one of its most shocking cliffhangers to date. Apart from our collective "whuh-huh?" reactions, find out what series boss Steven Moffat had to say about the surprise character return, and what it means for 'Sherlock' season 4 (and 5)!
Earlier this week 'Doctor Who' afforded us our best look yet at the newest Time Lord incarnation played by Matt Smith's replacement Peter Capaldi, though we'd be hard pressed to deny a bit of sadness when season 8 finally premieres, Smith now firmly in the past. There may be hope yet after all, as a new rumor suggests Smith recorded one last bit of content for his 'Doctor Who' exit that will pop up in the series 8 premiere!
As tends to be the case with 'Doctor Who' regenerations, the 2013 Christmas special "The Time of the Doctor" only afforded us the briefest of glimpses at Peter Capaldi's 12th incarnation before crashing into its usual cliffhanger. At the time, Capaldi still wore the 11th Doctor Matt Smith's duds, but the BBC has seen fit to grace us with a first look at the new "rebel" 'Doctor Who''s costume!
So soon already, 'Sherlock' season 3 will be at an end with this coming Sunday's finale installment "His Last Vow," pitting Sherlock Holmes and a newly- John Watson up against the threat of Charles Augustus Magnussen (Lars Mikkelsen, brother to ‘Hannibal”s Mads), the "Napoleon of Blackmail." The full set of photos from the finale have arrived so what can we deduce about the latest cliffhanger closer for our beloved BBC series?
This coming Sunday will see Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman's beloved 'Sherlock' bringing its latest season to a close yet again (at least in the UK), but for all of series creator Steven Moffat's talk about future season likelihood, has the BBC officially ordered the next run, leaving Moffat and co-writer/star Mark Gatiss to plan a fifth season?
The 2013 'Doctor Who' Christmas special, "The Time of the Doctor," only gave us the briefest of moments with new series star Peter Capaldi, following Matt Smith's exit from the title role, but what of the eighth season premiering later in 2014? The first new photo of the season has arrived, giving one of the leads a majorly old-school makeover!
Yes, already! 'Sherlock''s third season opener, "The Empty Hearse," won't hit PBS stateside until January 19, but already across the pond UK fans are preparing for the great detective's third finale, hopefully for a bit less biting cliffhanger this time around. The first trailer for "His Last Vow" has arrived, turning our stomachs with the introduction of Charles Augustus Magnussen!
After two long years, our international 'Sherlock' nightmare has finally come to an end, as the great detective has officially returned with at least one apparent explanation for his monumental "Reichenbach Fall." And while the explanation may only satisfy some, the game will go on with our first trailer for follow-up episode "The Sign of Three!"
We're just days away from the New Years' premiere of 'Sherlock' season 3, "The Empty Hearse," but even with the relatively short wait until the subsequent premieres, why wait for an early look at the second and third installments of the new series, "The Sign of Three" and "His Last Vow"? Some new photos of the season have emerged, but be warned of major spoilers for Watson and Sherlock's relationship, and the new villain to plague their lives!
