Revolution Renewed for second season!

Monday, April 29, 2013

NBC has renewed "Revolution" for a second season.

 J.J. Abrams' post-apocalyptic drama got off to a good start in September, with the premiere drawing in 11.7 million viewers and a 4.1 rating among adults in the 18-49 demo.

 The ratings remained solid until the show's four-month hiatus -- it was off the air from November 26 to March 25 -- but came back to weaker ratings upon its return, averaging about 6 million viewers.

 Still, the network's decision to renew "Revolution" -- along with "Chicago Fire," "Law & Order: SVU," "Grimm" and "Parenthood" -- comes as no surprise.

Season 2 of the series, which also stars Giancarlo Esposito, Tracy Spiridakos and Elizabeth Mitchell, will be 22 episodes. 

 "Revolution" airs on Mondays at 10 p.m. ET on NBC in the US & Mondays at 10pm on Sky1 and Sky1 HD in the UK.


'Doctor Who' finale will change the show forever, says Steven Moffat

Saturday, April 27, 2013

Doctor Who's Steven Moffat has revealed new details about series finale 'The Name of the Doctor'.

The upcoming episode will introduce a new menace to the BBC sci-fi series, known as The Whispermen.

"Having brought back two of the classics, the Ice Warriors and the Cybermen, this year we wanted a brand new monster to create chills in the finale," Moffat said.

"And the thought of stylish, whispering, almost faceless creatures was an idea that firstly scared me and that I thought would work well in an episode that looks forward and back."

The showrunner also promised that 'The Name of the Doctor' will "change the course of Who forever".

"It's full of surprises and questions that have never been answered in the history of Who, including the Doctor's greatest secret," Moffat claimed.

"We'll also find out what makes his new companion [Clara, played by Jenna-Louise Coleman] so impossible and there's a surprise that no-one has got right so far."

Coleman previously appeared on Doctor Who as space-faring Oswin and Victorian governess Clara, with the Doctor attempting to unravel the mystery of her multiple identities in recent episodes.

Hinting at what to expect from the finale, Coleman teased: "All I can say is that Clara hasn't just met the Doctor three times before."

7. The Doctor and Clara take a leap of faith...

8. "Don't get into a spaceship with a madman!"

9. Some people are an open book - some people are most definitely not.

Broadchurch to return for 2nd Series!

Monday, April 22, 2013

For those of you who have been watching Broadchurch, starring David Tennant and Olivia Colman. You will be happy to know it is to return for a 2nd Series. The show also starred Jodie Whittaker and Doctor Who's Arthur Darvill to name but a few.

ITV released the following press release:

Broadchurch will return for a second series, ITV confirmed tonight (Monday 22 April). The successful series, produced by Kudos Film and Television and Imaginary Friends Productions, written and created by Chris Chibnall, starring a strong ensemble cast lead by David Tennant and Olivia Colman has gripped the nation with viewers intrigued by the circumstances surrounding the death of young Danny Latimer.

 The new series will go into production next year. As with the first series, details of the story, and which characters will return, are currently being kept tightly under wraps. Since launching on 4 March, the drama has never been far from everyday conversation, becoming compelling viewing as the audience have dissected and analysed the cleverly crafted scripts, which implicated many of the locals living in the small picturesque seaside Dorset community of Broadchurch, home to the Latimer family.

The first episode rating of 9.1 million (31% audience share) saw Broadchurch achieve the highest weekday launch of a new drama across all broadcasters since ITV’s Whitechapel in January 2009. More than 9 million viewers have watched the popular drama unfold. Only two other dramas on television launching during weekday have rated higher since 2002, both from ITV, Life Begins and Doc Martin. The compelling series, produced by Kudos Film and Television, which also starred, Jodie Whittaker, Andrew Buchan, Vicky McClure, Arthur Darvill, David Bradley, Pauline Quirke, Jonathan Bailey, Carolyn Pickles and Will Mellor, had bookmakers running odds on who they thought was responsible for Danny’s death.

Commissioned for ITV by Acting Director of Drama Commissioning, Steve November, Broadchurch is executive produced by Chris Chibnall, and Kudos Film and Television’s Jane Featherstone. The series was produced by Richard Stokes and the lead director was James Strong. Euros Lyn also directed three episodes of the series. “We’re delighted to be commissioning a second series of Broadchurch,” said ITV’s Director of Television, Peter Fincham. “From the moment the murder scene was discovered, viewers became gripped by the series, and we’ve been genuinely thrilled by the audience response.

 David and Olivia’s performances and Chris’s cleverly crafted scripts have created a truly compelling drama.” Creator and writer Chris Chibnall said: "The whole Broadchurch team has been delighted and properly gobsmacked by the response from ITV viewers. When I first talked to Peter Fincham and Laura Mackie, ITV’s Director of Drama about Broadchurch, I mentioned that if people liked it, there was another very different story we could tell afterwards. I'm really thrilled we're going to tell that story too." 

 Executive producer, Jane Featherstone for Kudos Film and Television commented: “It’s such a privilege for Kudos to be able to work with Chris and ITV to bring the next chapter of Broadchurch to our screens. And although we’re giving nothing away right now, I can tell you it’s going to keep on delivering surprises and scale.”

Digital Doctors For Doctor Who 50th Anniversary Show?

DOCTOR Who bosses have boldly gone and copied Star Trek in a bid to bring back all the old Time Lords for the show’s 50th anniversary special. 

 Viewers will see Matt Smith, 30, mingle with all the actors from the previous BBC series, including the late William Hartnell and Jon Pertwee.

 TV chiefs came up with the plan, thanks to fellow sci-fi smash Star Trek. In 1996, the cast of spin-off series Deep Space Nine had an adventure with the original Enterprise crew Captain Kirk and Mr Spock (William Shatner, 82, and Leonard Nimoy, 82) as they looked in the 1960s. The show used hi-tech wizardry to digitally insert the young stars from Deep Space Nine into old footage from an episode called The Trouble With Tribbles, which aired in 1967. 

 Now BBC bosses plan to do the same. In November’s TV special to mark 50 years of Doctor Who, fans will see the current Doctor come face to face with all of the former Doctors who include Tom Baker, 79, Colin Baker, 69, and Peter Davison, 62. He will be “placed” into clips from the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s to make it look as though he is really there and interacting with his old Time Lord selves. 

 Ex-Doctor Who star David Tennant, 42, is the only actor who will appear in the flesh in the episode. And former show writer Robert Banks Stewart has let slip that as well as bringing back The Zygons, fans will see a carnival of monsters including Daleks and Cybermen.

What do you think? could this be possible? I mean it is the Daily Star! facts are not the strong point...

Christopher Eccleston to feature in Doctor Who

Thursday, April 18, 2013

Christopher Eccleston will feature in upcoming 'Doctor Who' episode 'Journey to the Centre of the TARDIS', when the Ninth Doctor's voice is heard as a space crew try and break into the TARDIS.

Christopher Eccleston is returning to 'Doctor Who' - as a voice from the past.

The 49-year-old actor was rumoured to be coming back for the sci-fi show's 50th anniversary episode in November but decided not to reprise his role as the Ninth Doctor.

However, he will feature in next week's episode 'Journey to the Centre of the TARDIS', which focuses on a spaceship salvage team which captures the TARDIS.

As they try and break into the time-travelling machine viewers will hear the Ninth Doctor's voice say, "The assembled hordes of Genghis Khan couldn't get through these doors, and believe me they've tried."

It is a line from 'Rose', which was the first episode of the new run of 'Doctor Who' which began in 2005 and starred Billie Piper as the Time Lord's companion Rose Tyler.

It was revealed that Christopher had met with showrunner Steven Moffat to discuss the possibility of returning for the 50th anniversary special alongside Eleventh Doctor Matt Smith and Tenth Doctor David Tennant.

However, he ultimately decided not to come back for the feature-length adventure, which will also feature Billie and current companion Jenna-Louise Coleman.

A spokesperson for the BBC previously said: "Chris met with Steven Moffat a couple of times to talk about Steven's plans for the Doctor Who 50th anniversary episode. After careful thought, Chris decided not to be in the episode. He wishes the team all the best."

'Heroes' to be revived by MSN, Xbox?

Heroes may return as part of a new programming initiative by MSN, a report suggests.

The cult drama could be revived, with MSN looking to launch original programming via its Xbox entertainment studio, according to TVLine.

The revamped Heroes would focus primarily on new characters, with the original cast - which included the likes of Hayden Panettiere and Milo Ventimiglia - potentially making cameo appearances.

Talks regarding the revival are currently said to be in the early stages.

Heroes originally premiered on NBC in September 2006, airing four seasons before drawing to a close in February 2010.

Following the show's cancellation, there were rumours of a possible TV movie or mini-series to wrap up storylines, though no such project ever materialised.

Series creator Tim Kring currently works on the Fox drama series Touch starring Kiefer Sutherland.


'Doctor Who' 50th: Daleks, Cybermen to team with Zygons?

Wednesday, April 17, 2013

Doctor Who writer Robert Banks Stewart has hinted that fans should expect a multitude of monsters in the 50th special. Stewart created shape-shifting aliens the Zygons, who have been confirmed to return in the anniversary episode.
"The Zygons are in there with all the others - particularly the Daleks and the Cybermen," Banks Stewart - who was promoting his new crime thriller novel The Hurricane's Tail - told Digital Spy.

"[But] nobody yet knows what the plot of the 50th will be - Steven Moffat and his team in Cardiff, they are quite rightly keeping it all secret."

Banks Stewart previously penned classic Who stories 'Terror of the Zygons' (1975) and 'The Seeds of Doom' (1976).

However, the writer explained that while he agreed to let the BBC use his creations, he feels the current Doctor Who episodes are "too adult".

"My own personal opinion is that the modern Doctor Who should be aimed more at children," he said.

"People very fondly remembered being scared by Doctor Who - now the plots seem to me a little too adult."

The Hurricane's Tail is available now, priced £9.99 in paperback and £5.99 as a Kindle ebook. For more information visit www.kaleidoscopepublishing.co.uk.

'Broadchurch' Chris Chibnall to write for 'Doctor Who' series eight?

Tuesday, April 16, 2013

Broadchurch creator Chris Chibnall has confirmed that he has been approached to write a new Doctor Who episode.

Chibnall has previously written five episodes for the BBC sci-fi drama, with 2012's 'The Power of Three' his most recent.
"I hope to [return for series eight], and Steven [Moffat's] been good enough to ask," the writer told CultBox.

"So we'll just see if all the schedules figure out and stuff like that. But it's always lovely to be on the list."

Chibnall added that it remains "a privilege and an honour" to write for Doctor Who.

"It's... a delight to go in and write a Doctor Who [episode]," he said. "Steven is a great showrunner to work for, and you always do a Doctor Who if there's time, because you can tell stories you can't tell anywhere else."

A full eighth series of Doctor Who is expected to follow the show's 50th anniversary special - airing in November - and Christmas special - airing in late December.

New SyFy Channel Show 'Defiance' Kicks Off!

Monday, April 15, 2013

So the channel that brought you Lost Girl and Warehouse 13, are releasing as new show called Defiance. Some of you may already know about it. It kicks off in America, at 9pm Eastern and 8pm Central tonight and Canada on Showcase at 10pm tonight , the UK and Ireland tomorrow at 9pm, Brazil tomorrow at 8pm, Germany tomorrow at 8.15pm, France at 10.15pm and Spain at 10.25pm tomorrow. It starts in Australia on their SF Channel at 9.30pm April 18th and Portugal have to wait until May 5th at 10pm for it to air on their channel TVSeries.

The also features Warehouse 13's Jaime Murray.

So here is the background on the show:

The series is set in the near future, where aliens known collectively as Votans have come to Earth seeking a new home after their star system was destroyed in a stellar collision. The Votans had thought Earth was uninhabited, but upon their arrival in 2013 discover that humans are living on the planet, who respond to them with hostility and suspicion.

A limited number of Votans are allowed to settle in a colony in Brazil, and eventually two other colonies, but millions of Votans remained in hypersleep aboard their ships in orbit as negotiations dragged on with Earth governments for full-scale settlement.

Tensions rose for ten years, but the Votan and human governments were on the verge of negotiating a peaceful settlement, when in 2023 the Votan ambassador to the United Nations was assassinated by a disgruntled human supremacist on live television outside of the United Nations Headquarters in New York City. This sparked a disastrous global conflict between humans and the aliens known as the "Pale Wars". The wars tore apart the planet for seven years, until their culmination in 2030 in the apocalyptic "Arkfall" event, when the Ark fleet in orbit mysteriously exploded. The aliens think a rogue human commander was responsible, while humans suspect it was an alien weapons experiment gone awry. Millions of Votans died in hypersleep. During the Arkfall, destroyed Arks rained down on Earth and accidentally released terraformer technology.

While the Votans had intended to use their terraforming technology in a carefully planned manner, the Arkfall haphazardly unleashed chaotic and radical changes to the biosphere and even the geology of Earth, making the planet dangerous to both humans and the aliens. The earth was scorched, chasms opened in the ground, new mountain ranges were raised, and the surface of the planet was covered with dust and debris. Animal and plant species from the Votan star system were introduced to Earth, and both native and alien animal species were horribly mutated by the uncontrolled terraformer technology, creating bizarre and dangerous hybrids and new species.

Within a few months, the Pale Wars wound down as both sides had fought to the point of mutual exhaustion, and a ceasefire was declared. Few organized governments remained for either the humans or the aliens, and both sides factionalized as their members began looking out for themselves. In several areas, local human and Votan militias began to band together when they realized that they had to co-operate if they hoped to survive on this new, almost alien planet.

The debris from the destroyed Ark fleet now forms an artificial "Ark belt" in Earth orbit, which periodically rains down in small-scale "Arkfalls", which present a hazard for survivors on the surface, but also provide valuable opportunities to salvage advanced technology aboard the Arks (which even the aliens can no longer easily reproduce on their own).

New Posters for Star Trek: Into Darkness

The Return of Blakes 7

Cult classic sci-fi series Blake's 7 is to be remade for the Syfy network, it has been announced.

FremantleMedia International said 13 hour-long episodes will be written by Heroes writer Joe Pokaski.

It added, in a statement, that Casino Royale and Goldeneye director Martin Campbell was also on board.

The original series, which ran on the BBC between 1978 and 1981, followed the exploits of a group of renegades and convicted criminals.

Roj Blake, played by Welsh actor Gareth Thomas, was a political dissident arrested, tried and convicted on false charges by a brutal totalitarian government, and then deported from Earth to a prison planet.

Stealing a spaceship, Blake and his team conducted a campaign against the ruling Terran Federation.

Peak audience

Comparing Blake's 7 with the hit US sci-fi series Star Trek, The Independent said in 1998: "No 'boldly going' here: instead, we got the boot stamping on a human face which George Orwell offered as a vision of humanity's future in Nineteen Eighty-Four."

At its peak, the series was watched by 10 million viewers and was sold to 40 countries. A range of Blake's 7 merchandise including books, magazines, annuals and toys were also released.

A radio adaptation, featuring This Life's Daniela Nardini as villain Servalan, was made in 2006.

According to FremantleMedia, the new series will be set in 2136 and will "tell the story of seven criminals - six guilty and one innocent - on their way to life on a prison colony in space, who together wrestle freedom from imprisonment".

It continued: "They acquire an alien ship which gives them a second chance at life and become the most unlikely heroes of their time".

Chief executive officer David Ellender said: "Blake's 7 was such a forward-thinking concept that the show continues to have resonance with audiences today."

The latest announcement is not the first time a remake of Blake's 7 has been attempted.

In 2003, a miniseries was shelved after actor Paul Darrow - who played Kerr Avon in the original show - left the project.

Later in 2008, Sky One announced it had commissioned two 60-minute scripts for a potential series but two years later said it had decided not to proceed.

Doctor Who's 8th Doctor Paul McGann: 'Anniversary role could come at last minute'

Friday, April 12, 2013

Paul McGann has said that he will not rule out any involvement in Doctor Who's 50th anniversary special.

Matt Smith and Jenna-Louise Coleman will be joined by returning stars David Tennant and Billie Piper for the special, but a BBC source recently told Digital Spy that Christopher Eccleston has chosen not to take part.

McGann - who played the Eighth Doctor - offered his own opinions on the anniversary to ZBTV by suggesting that Eccleston's decision not to appear could mean changes to showrunner Steven Moffat's plans.

"I think Chris Eccleston is probably a big factor in it. I don't want to speak for him... he's probably reluctant to get involved in anything that's ongoing," McGann said.

He continued: "So that's something that they have to somehow get over and deal with. I'm guessing they've got time to do it. It's not quite the anniversary yet. The anniversary doesn't start until November.

"Whatever it is that they're planning and they are making, they've got time to do it. It's my feeling [and] this is just a personal thing, once they resolve Chris Eccleston's participation or non-participation either way, then they're free to [figure it out]... Being actors anyway, they'll call us on the Friday and say, 'You're starting on a Monday'."

McGann then added: "We're not going to know until the 11th hour. Half past 11... I can't count the times as an actor, when [you're] offered something and you start next week!"

Past Doctors Colin Baker and Sylvester McCoy have both recently suggested that they are unlikely to return for the anniversary, with John Barrowman and Freema Agyeman making similar comments.

Doctor Who's 50th anniversary will include several nods to the show's heritage, including bringing back Jemma Redgrave as UNIT's Kate Stewart and a revival for villains the Zygons.

John Hurt has also been cast in an unspecified role in the celebratory episode, which is being filmed now in the UK.

The series continues on Saturday on BBC One in the UK and BBC America in the Mark Gatiss-penned episode 'Cold War'.

Watch Paul McGann discuss the 50th anniversary below:
