Doctor Who fans are certainly used to a bit of turnover amongst the cast, the latest of which will see Jenna Coleman’s Clara exiting the series before Season 9’s end. That departure will presumably arrive in the next few weeks (if not immediately sooner) while Steven Moffat claims the search for Peter Capaldi’s next companion hasn’t made much progress.

Paramount among questions Sherlock fans have of upcoming Victorian special The Abominable Bride, we don’t yet know if the episode will simply shake up the time and place, or restart the relationship between Sherlock Holmes and his beloved Dr. Watson. Now, a new trailer hits some familiar beats as we learn a bit more about the plot.
Idris Elba’s name has flown about every corner of the internet with James Bond and Star Trek speculation, but December will see the Luther star returning to one of his most popular roles. The BBC has officially scheduled a one-night event for the next Luther special, also revealing our first photos and details.
Tepid performance of 2007’s The Golden Compass feature all-but-assured that the adaptation of Philip Pullman’s fantasy trilogy His Dark Materials had cooled, though The BBC looks to take another stab at it. The network will adapt the fantasy franchise as an new series with New Line Cinema, its first major foray into television.
Doctor Who fans are notoriously good at sniffing out potential exits of its many stars over the years, as we most recently saw with Jenna Coleman’s Clara, but there’s no need to raise alarms over Peter Capaldi just yet. Despite a few rumors, Steven Moffat confirms that Peter Capaldi will continue to wield the sonic screwdriver (er … shades) through Doctor Who for the foreseeable future.
At long last, the weekend saw Sherlock confirming that Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman would hit the Victoria era in early January, but there’s even better news than a new trailer. The BBC has confirmed that Sherlock will follow Doctor Who by heading into theaters, so when can we check out Sherlock: The Abominable Bride?
Up until now, Sherlock creator Steven Moffat has been reluctant to label the impending Victorian episode as a “Christmas Special,” and we now know why. Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman will return in January of 2016, as confirmed by a new trailer and photos from Sherlock: The Abominable Bride.
Before Broad City captured the hearts of America’s #millennials with its down-to-earth depiction of two galpals’ riotous (and frequently drug-fueled) misadventures in New York, the BBC’s Absolutely Fabulous blazed a trail with a different, slightly more reprehensible pair of besties. Known by true fans as Ab Fab, the sitcom dared to submit a pair of pill-popping, nip-slugging, freely vindictive and unrestrainedly malicious adult women as comic heroines. The crazy part was that it worked: the show amassed a considerable cult following during its original run in the early ‘90s, returned for a six-episode stint in 2001 and then eight more in 2003, a handful of specials, and a four-episode revival series in 2012. Undeniably evidencing the enduring need for deliciously bitchy one-liners, Ab Fab has been resurrected for one more go, this time on the silver screen.
Yesterday, we caught wind that Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman’s upcoming Sherlock special would finally deliver a full trailer, and deliver it has. Sherlock and Watson at last return to the Victorian era, but when can we expect them to return to TV screens? The mystery deepens …
The ever-crowded schedules of Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman make it all-but-impossible to determine when Sherlock Season 4 will finally deduce a start date, but the series’ upcoming Victorian special at least steps further into the light. Check out a new teaser, with the promise of more to come later this week!
