BBC AMERICA: Generosity or Inevitability?

This morning BBC America released last night’s Doctor Who premiere episode of Series 35, (yes, I refuse to call it series 9) “The Magician’s Apprentice” for free to stream on YouTube. We’ve never really seen this type of move from cable TV’s pay-to-view sister of BBC Worldwide. Was this generosity or have they begun to realise that fans are going to stream it regardless? (some even before it graces American screens) Of course fans from places outside the UK applauded BBC America and I myself will give them this; it’s really quite good strategy on their part as they might as well get the glory, be the hero, and maybe hook themselves some future cable subscribers…

Regardless here it is: The Magician’s Apprentice. Enjoy!


Just a Quickie!

TV News I am totally chuffed about!!


Finding Carter, MTV’s new Drama features one of my ALL TIME favourite actresses, Kathryn Prescott of Skins 2nd Generation “Naomily” fame, in which she plays a 16 year old (rather convincingly being that she’s 22 years old now) who after being arrested for a teen prank discovers that she was abducted from her front yard in Virginia 13 years earlier and the cool young mom she’s besties with is actually her abductor. Naturally she is shipped off immediately to live with her birth parents. It’s really a great show. Once I got past a few small issues like Carter worrying too much about boys and such. I mean I’d be absolutely gutted if I was ripped away from someone who was my mom 13 years and given the info she was. But now that I see how much pain, confusion, etc Carter was swallowing and keeping inside it is more realistic now. Kat’s acting is superb and she is joined by Soap veteran Cynthia Watros (Crazy Annie Dutton on Guiding Light! Loved that soap!!) and Alex Denisof (Yep! Wesley of Buffy the Vampire Slayer Fame and RL Hubby of Alison Hannigan!) Anyway, I said “a quickie“, didn’t I?? So tune into FINDING CARTER on MTV Tuesday nights 10pm eastern / 9pm central!! Here’s a clip:



Uhm no! And apparently ITV agrees because Ms Kingston (or as I prefer to call her MRS. DOCTOR WHO) will be teaming up with Noel Clarke (Yes that would be the same lad who played Micky/Ricky Smith on Doctor Who) to star in the new four part drama Chasing Shadows, which is set to premiere on Thursday September 4th at 9pm. Here’s a clip:


¬†That’s all for now…… ūüôā


Ever Wonder?

It may sound strange but I often wonder how celebrities feel about having their likeness on an action figure? You may be wondering “does this geeky girl have too much time on her hands??” Hmm maybe so okay, probably!

A few months ago I got the idea from someone on tumblr to gather pictures taken of actors with their own action figures and I actually found quite a few!

Today I happened to stumble upon a video of an actor talking about how they felt (yep, you guessed it!) about having their own action figure so now I’m on a mission to find more videos of actors showing off their own action figures so hopefully here’s the first to more to come:

Anyone else curious either how they feel or how it would feel to have your own?

New Figure!!

My newest action figure appears to be causing some stress and¬†confusion¬†among the ‘ranks’…



Come on Character Options!!!!!

Series 7 of Doctor Who ((RANT))

This is Series 7 (Yanklation: Season 7) of Doctor Who:

We are currently on:


It’s the same series, folks. That’s why we’re celebrating 50 years NOT 7!!!

For Christ Sake, get it right!!!!


A “Little” Problem

I could write a long rant about how cheap ¬†Character Options has become but I think this photo relates just how much I feel shafted by their discontinuing their 5″ range of Doctor Who figures for a smaller 3.75″ range:
