We're still not sure exactly how and when the BBC will announce 'Doctor Who''s replacement for the departing Matt Smith, but we can at least officially rule out one choice for the next iteration of the Doctor. Following initial rumors that 'Skyfall' star Rory Kinnear had been the frontrunner to pick up the keys to the TARDIS, the actor has officially denied any involvement with the ongoing cast selection.
Helena Bonham Carter may have proven largely extraneous to both the plot and failures of this past weekend's 'The Lone Ranger,' but that won't stop fans of the chameleon actress from checking out her turn as Elizabeth Taylor in BBC's forthcoming drama adaptation, 'Burton & Taylor.' Lindsay Lohan in 'Liz & Dick' this ain't, and we've got the first look at the production's new trailer!
For as much as 'Doctor Who' fans lament that Matt Smith will end his tenure as the 11th Doctor by Christmas 2013, we've still plenty of fan-satisfying action to be had in the upcoming 50th anniversary special, starring former 'Doctor Who' David Tennant and John Hurt. Hurt's mysterious character had been introduced in the closing moments of 'Doctor Who' season 7 finale "The Name of the Doctor," but now new details have leaked providing much-desired clarification on the forgotten "Doctor."
'Sherlock' fans, the panel is afoot! After a long absence from the air (Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman are a wee bit busy, after all), the BBC's beloved 'Sherlock' has officially set an American premiere for 2014, but also deduced something better: 'Sherlock' will make its first San Diego appearance at Comic-Con 2013!
It's been 50 years since 'Doctor Who' first started, and in that time it's managed to gather loads of fans called Whovians. Now, every Whovian will champion one Doctor over another, always extolling the virtues of their favorite incarnation of the Time Lord. Today, we're featuring the most recent incarnation, the Eleventh Doctor, as the Cosplay of the Day. And what we've found was jaw-dropping.
A few weeks ago, news that 'Doctor Who' star Matt Smith would officially step down from the iconic role sent fans and press into a tizzy, with rumors of an announcement over his replacement flying every which way. The BBC was quick to interject that the search for a new 'Doctor Who' remained ongoing for the foreseeable future, but with Comic-Con 2013 and the 'Doctor Who' 50th anniversary special on the horizon, when can Who-vian fans expect some real news?
Just weeks after learning that 'Doctor Who' star Matt Smith will officially depart the series at the end of 2013, this past weekend saw the internet aflutter with rumors that his replacement had already been chosen, with a supposed announcement forthcoming this week. Choices ran the gamut from Dominic ('Captain America') Cooper to Rory ('Skyfall') Kinnear, but now the BBC has finally stepped in to deliver the truth of 'Doctor Who's future.
Don't blink, keep an eye out for tally marks on your arms, and order up a round of fish fingers and custard, because 'Doctor Who''s Amy Pond has come to call!
Though a built-in end to the role has long been inherent to 'Doctor Who' and its stars, the pain was no less devastating for fans to learn that current series star Matt Smith would depart the role by the end of 2013. Given the 'Doctor Who' shooting schedule, however, and the needed presence of Smith's replacement for the 2013 Christmas special regeneration, the already-underway search may bear fruit as early as next month, says one publication!
Sad news for 'Doctor Who' fans, as the beloved 11th Doctor, Matt Smith, has officially announced his decision to end the series. Smith's departure, of course, means the search has begun for a 12th Doctor to be introduced at the end of the year, but what does series showrunner Steven Moffat have to say about Smith's leave?
