Both Lying in the Gutters and SF Crowsnest are calling Eleven for Paterson Joseph, who has been considered a leading contender for the role. He is reportedly the favorite of new showrunner Steven Moffat, and would be the series’ first black Doctor.
Joseph did play a bit part in Series 1, but as anyone who remembers Hercules and Xena will tell you, that rarely matters.
In yet another stunning show of lack of originality (including flashbacks to BSG’s revival), ABC is supporting the remake of V. I’m not sure I can get behind it. There was just something about the total 80′s look of the original that would be a shame to lose.
One hopes this is only your standard overblown celebrity news ‘reporting,’ but according to Digitalspy.co.uk, Doctor Who star David Tennant has a stalker who has written a science fiction version of Hamlet co-starring herself, harasses his co-stars (he’s currently working on a more standard version of the play,) and claims to have left her husband for the star.
“She insists that both the Doctor and Hamlet are aliens in a hostile universe, who are terrified of being alone. But she will save him by being his Rose or Ophelia.
“Sadly, the only thing she and Ophelia have in common is their madness. And David is afraid, very afraid.”
It’s creepy as hell when fangirls pull this stuff on the internet, but to cross it over to the real world and the real people… Ugh. (via)
