Rose Tyler Returning To Doctor Who In New Series Of Audio Adventures

Billie Piper’s Rose Tyler still has one of the most memorable exits from Doctor Who in the show’s history, with that final scene with her and the Tenth Doctor on a beach being an emotional high point for the series. Since that moment, Piper has popped up for small cameos as well as appearing in Big Finish audio dramas alongside David Tennant. Now, Big Finish have announced that Rose is returning for her own series – Rose Tyler: The Dimension Cannon – and she’s bringing her family with her.

The Dimension Cannon was first mentioned in the 2008 episode “Journey’s End,” in which Rose explained how her parallel universe Torchwood team had created a device allowing her to leap between worlds. But, just as it was finished, the multiverse began collapsing. Very inconvenient, right? Now, Big Finish is aiming to show us what happened during Rose’s journeys through

“Goodbye Christopher Robin” reveals the origins of Winnie the Pooh

There is perhaps no more beloved children’s book or character than Winnie the Pooh. For nearly a century now, kids have been delighted by this bear. As such, there’s an avenue for a biopic about author A.A. Milne and the origins of this story. Opening on Friday, Goodbye Christopher Robin seeks to transform Milne’s tale into something that will touch audiences of all ages. Unfortunately, this is a pretty standard issue biopic, without any thing to really set it apart. Awards prospects are slim, but more on that later. Pooh fans might see it as a curiosity, but this writer mostly just views it as a disappointment. The film is, as mentioned above, a biopic of writer A.A. Milne (Domhnall Gleeson), the man who created Winnie the Pooh. Struggling after seeing the horrors of World War I, A.A., or Alan, finds peace by creating a world with his son C.

‘The Forgotten’ DVD Review

Stars: Clem Tibber, Shaun Dingwall, Elarica Gallacher, Lyndsey Marshal, Isaura Barbé-Brown, James Capel, James Doherty, Carys Lewis | Written by Oliver Frampton, James Hall | Directed by Oliver Frampton

[Nb: With the film now – finally – available to buy in the UK (The Forgotten is out today from Metrodome), here’s a repost of my review of the film from the 2014 London Frightfest]

There has been, over the past few years, a growing trend in British horror for setting movies in abandoned housing estates and tower blocks. Joining the growing ranks is The Forgotten, which sees a father and son forced to squat in an empty London council estate scheduled for demolition, seemingly abandoned by the mother. A dark, creepy and foreboding place, the flat is no place for a family; even less so after 14 year old Tommy starts to hear strange noises coming from the boarded-up flat next door…

Shot on a London council estate scheduled for demolition, that was once used for location shoots on UK police drama The Bill, The Forgotten is, like all good horror films, not just about the physical, and in this case,

PBS Drama: Breathless

  • bestbritishtv
PBS Masterpiece Breathless

On 24 August PBS Masterpiece will debut a new British TV show — Breathless. The 60s era medical drama has been variously described as Britain’s answer to Mad Men or ITV’s response to The Hour. Based purely on ratings, the comparisons were off the mark as the show was cancelled after it’s first season in the UK. Nevertheless, PBS hope the show’s all-star cast will entice a healthy audience. Leading the way is Jack Davenport (Swingtown) who plays Otto Powell, a high flying surgeon who performs illegal abortions when he’s off-the-clock. Shaun Dingwall (Doctor Who) is his work place frenemy Dr Charlie Enderbury. Joanna Page (The Syndicate) plays Dingwall’s love interest. The series has been formatted into three, two-hour long episodes that will wrap up on Sunday 7 September.

Doctor Who: the film careers of Matt Smith and Peter Capaldi

Alex's series looking back at the film careers of actors who've played the Doctor finishes with Matt Smith and Peter Capaldi...

Feature

Read the previous part in this series: the film careers of Christopher Eccleston and David Tennant, here.

By 2009, the new version of Doctor Who had become not only an integral part of Saturday night television and a huge Christmas ratings winner but also an international success all over again. David Tennant, who had played the Time Lord since 2005 and was, arguably, more popular than any Doctor since the mighty Tom Baker hung up his scarf in 1981, had announced his resignation from the part he loved in October 2008. Many wondered how the incoming showrunner, Steven Moffat, would follow Tennant and what kind of show would emerge.

Tennant spent much of 2009 on stage in Hamlet and was only able to devote small amounts of time to Doctor Who. Occasional specials

Curtain: Poirot’s Last Case – Review

Curtain Poirot’s Last Case

All good things must come to an end, even Poirot – well the David Suchet version anyway. Rather fittingly, ITV rolled out the big guns for Suchet’s last dance and the cast were a veritable Who’s Who of British TV. Anne Reid (Last Tango in Halifax), Philip Glenister (Life on Mars), Helen Baxendale (Friends) and Shaun Dingwall (Breathless) were just some of the A-listers who came to pay homage to Britain’s favorite Belgian. Also on hand was Poirot’s old chum, Hastings (Hugh Fraser). The duo have been through plenty of trials and tribulations over the years but as the end drew near for the frail looking Poirot, Hastings was asked to be his “eye and ears” on one last detective quest.

The setting for Poirot’s Last Case was a familiar one, Styles House where the duo first met no less than 30 years ago.
