I'm surprised no one's posted about this yet.

Hopefully it will get picked up for the fall season.

I'm torn. On one hand, John Barrowman will be on my television regularly. On the other hand... another Shonda Rimes drama the world doesn't need.

Ugh, Shonda Rimes. My urge to watch this show is plummeting now.

Good luck to Barrowman though.

Catherine Jenkins from the Christmas Carol episode is on Dancing with the Stars this season. So far, first two weeks, she's the best.

Jenna-Louise Coleman's last episode of Titanic airs tonight at 9pm on ITV. I know the mini-series has more or less sucked but Jenna's been one of the few bright spots in it.

Oh and Mark Gatiss appeared in the Series 4 finale of Being Human, which BBCAmerica aired yesterday. He's brilliant in it.

So my parents like British crime shows. In order to fill the void, they sometimes buy DVD sets sight unseen. Not so long ago, my dad unearthed a set of Campion DVDs, starring Peter Davison. Get a load of the description! Is is just me, or would you call that trying too hard or what?

Look how quirky it is! Bryan Fuller eat your heart out! S2 is no better.

Dad said he could only make it through about ten minutes. Not only was the description trying too hard, the actual show was really boring. Now there's a bitter irony for you. Thank god PD got better shows both before and after.

If they like Davison and they like British crime shows, tell them to look for "The Last Detective." Georgia Moffett appears prominently in one of the later episodes.

I was re-watching the series 'Cracker', which of course had Christopher Eccleston and I just watched the episode 'Best Boys' with John Simm. I had forgotten about the show but it was probably the first thing I had seen either actors in. Or at least John Simm, he looks like a kid in it.
BB doesn't really go through any new territory for the show. It had a couple themes they really already covered in series before it. But John Simm and Liam Cunningham were really great as two of the most sympathetic villains they ever had IMO.

The Pirates!, with David Tennant playing a somewhat conniving and unhappy Charles Darwin, is really fun. Martin Freeman also has a big part, and Hugh Grant has maybe his best role to date.

I just watched part of Womb with Matt Smith. It was...disturbing.

Also watched Never Let Me Go the other night starring Sally Sparrow from Blink, which depressed the hell out of me.

That was a very weird night.

Also saw her in Never Let Me Go felt the same way depressed instead of just doing a good love triangle story they made it over complicated. She got a better ending in Blink. Least at the end she was alive and had a buissness to run and a possible boyfreind.

I can't believe people are forgetting that 'Never Let Me Go' has TWO DW connections. Andrew Garfield who played Frank in 'Daleks of Manhattan' and 'Evolution of the Daleks' is part of that love triangle.

Noel (Mickey Smith) Clarke's new BritFlick, "Fast Girls", is just about to come out.

It features Clarke as the coach of the British Olympic Relay Team trying to manage the tensions between rich daddy's girl, and established team star, Lisa and the rising star from the wrong side of the tracks played by Lenona Crichlow (Annie from Being Human). Support comes from the team's object-of-their-affection physio (Arthur off Merlin, Lisa's overbearing Dad (Rupert Graves - who's appearing in DW S7 and is Lestrade in Sherlock).

Which means that someone out there needs to put a bell in Tennant's hand in the "Barrowman!" gif (based on Tennant's hosting gig on Buzzcocks.)

Noel Clarke's been a busy boy. The trailer for the latest film he's written/directed/starred in is now out. This time it's an SF horror film in a distinctly Alienesque vein, seeing the staff of a storage unit facility trapped with a ramaging, murderous creature after the mysterious crash of a cargo plane near their building.

Lenora Crichlow's been in Doctor Who too - she played Cheen, one of the couple who kidnapped Martha in 'Gridlock.'

Went to see the play The Last Of The Hausmanns at the National Theatre that starred Helen McCrory (Roseanna from 'The Vampires of Venice'). Really good play - McCrory and Julie Walters (how has she never been in Doctor Who?) are both excellent in it.

I've been catching up the series of short BBC films all set in Margate, True Love, on iPlayer that have quite a few Doctor Who alumni in them. David Tennant (Ten of course) plays a married man tempted by an old flame in one, Billie Piper (Rose Tyler) plays a schoolteacher in another, and David Morrissey (Jackson Lake in 'The Next Doctor') plays a divorced taxi driver in yet another. Gemma Chan (Mia in 'The Waters Of Mars') is in one too.
