Doctor Who Christmas Special Trailer Tells The Fairytale Of Regeneration
The time has come, the walrus said — to talk of many things. Of shoes and ships and sealing-wax — of regenerations and things. Alright so maybe that last part is a rewrite, but still: "The Time of The Doctor" is upon us this Christmas, and 2013's holiday special of the BBC icon Doctor Who promises to usher in the latest iteration of the timey-wimey traveling lord of time with a... folklore-ish children's poem?

Doctor Who Christmas Special Gets A Title, Sherlock Series 3 UK Premiere Date Coming Soon
People love Doctor Who. That may seem obvious to anyone who’s ever been to Comic-Con or some other event in which it’s appropriate to dress up as any of the various Doctors, but it was made even more evident this weekend when the 50th Anniversary Special aired on both sides of the pond, raking in high ratings and box office dollars in the process. While fans continue to celebrate the greatness of the special, they’re left to wonder what’s next for Doctor Who.

New Sherlock Image is Giving Major Edward Hopper Vibes
The first official image from BBC drama Sherlock is here at last and — stop your panting and hyperventilating, fan girls — it paints a reservedly emotional picture of what to expect from the upcoming third season. Giving us some major dejá vu of the Edward Hopper variety, Benedict Cumberbatch's Sherlock Holmes and Martin Freeman's John Watson both look poised for a major emotional upheaval. They’re in a glass case of emotion (only Watson’s allowed snacks), and hoo boy are we excited for what’s to come.

We’re already anticipating the fourth season of Downton Abbey, which is set to premiere after the new year, and today comes word that PBS Masterpiece is also going to be airing the third season of Sherlock in January, pairing the mystery-thriller with the period drama for what is sure to be hours of must-watch television...
Matt Smith Makes A Thank You Video For Doctor Who Cast, Crew And Fans
If you’ve been living under a rock, you may have somehow managed to miss the sad but inevitable news that Matt Smith is leaving the BBC program, Doctor Who, which airs on BBC America in the States. On Friday, the network released a nice video from the show’s main man, which pulls a Love Actually and offers a sincere written thank you to the cast, crew, and fans that have been involved with the show since Smith began appearing as the Eleventh Doctor in 2010.
Skyfall's Rory Kinnear May Be The BBC's Next Doctor Who Star
The race to sign on a brand new doctor for BBC’s series Doctor Who is well underway. Matt Smith, who is the eleventh doctor and who has portrayed the character since 2010, is bowing out after this November’s 50th Anniversary episode. Now, it seems frequent theater actor (and bit player in the James Bond franchise) Rory Kinnear might replace Smith.
Everybody Loves Raymond Remake The Smiths Pilot In Development For BBC
It won't be the first time another country has remade Everybody Loves Raymond, but the latest attempt to take on Philip Rosenthal's CBS comedy may be the most buzzed about since the Russian remake gained attention stateside thanks to Exporting Raymond. The documentary chronicled the Russian attempt to adapt the comedy. British comedian and actor Lee Mack is tackling the U.K. adaptation of the series, which is in the works for BBC One.
BBC Three Zombie Drama In The Flesh Gets Its First Trailer
With The Walking Dead getting massive ratings at AMC, it was only a matter of time before other networks would create their own zombie series and BBC Three has just released the first trailer for the three-part drama called In The Flesh. Looking like a perfect mix of 28 Days Later and Warm Bodies, the mini-series follows a dead teenager's reintegration back into his former community and his still living family. Watch the new spot and "Enter Kieren's world"...
J.K. Rowling's Casual Vacancy Set For A TV Series
The Casual Vacancy is unrelated to the Potter universe and targeted at adults, rather than children and young adults. The greatly anticipated novel received mixed reviews, but given Rowling's success and popularity, not to mention the success and popularity of her fantasy series, it shouldn't come as much of a surprise that her new novel will be adapted. Only, instead of a feature film, The Casual Vacancy will be made into a TV series.
William Hurt To Star In Challenger Space Shuttle Docu-Drama
The Science Channel is moving into the big leagues with the latest bit of casting news for a yet untitled docu-drama they are planning surrounding the investigation into the ill-fated 1986 launch of the Challenger space shuttle. Oscar winner William Hurt has been tapped to star in the true story, which is being produced in partnership with the BBC.
Steven Moffat And Mark Gatiss Hint At Sherlock Series 3 With Three Key Words
BBC’s Sherlock, from co-creators Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss, is without question the preeminent adaptation of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s most famous character currently on any medium. Benedict Cumberbatch’s Holmes and Martin Freeman’s Dr. John Watson have even better chemistry than Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law and, even though it’s a bit unfair calling it sight unseen, I can’t imagine CBS’ rival show will come close in quality to the soon to be nine 90 minutes episodes of the BBC series.
