We're now past the one-month mark in the countdown to the return of BBC America's Orphan Black. Some artsy new posters for Season 2 have made their way online and they show off Tatiana Maslany in her various characters. The one above is Sarah, and the one below reveals the (partial) face of new character Rachel:
Orphan Black returns for its second season on BBC America in about a month. We've already seen quite a few promotional videos for the second season, and the latest serves as a look back on the first season...
It’s been a very busy few days for the folks over at BBC America. The network has made announcements regarding two of its biggest properties in the past 24 hours. Namely, that a new clone of Tatiana Maslany was set to arrive to Orphan Black, and the addition of a new baddie to wibble-wobble through time and space on Doctor Who alongside new Doctor Peter Capaldi.
The BBC America series Orphan Black is about to return, and from the looks of things, the show should be better than ever. The breakout series has been heavily promoted by BBC America over the last several months, and with Season 2 looming just over the horizon, we’ve finally gotten a full trailer.
Exciting news, Whovians! Turns out the TARDIS will be built for three in its upcoming eighth season, as actor Samuel Anderson (he of The History Boys and Gavin & Stacey fame) has been tapped to join the cast of Doctor Who. Is this a new companion for the Doctor? A potential love interest for Clara Oswald? So many questions!
Hold onto your TARDIS, Whovians, because the era of Twelve not only has a face, but a brand new get-up to usher in the latest iteration of the man behind BBC’s iconic sci-fi series, Doctor Who. The upcoming eighth season of the series will be fronted by Peter Capaldi in a grown-up, no frills punk-esque fashion, if the new image of his costume has any say on the matter. There's a lot more going on outside of those stern eyes and ill-colored kidneys.
For fans of the breakout BBC America series Orphan Black, the wait for a new season has felt particularly painful, given the world’s recent realization that the show is amazing and Tatiana Maslany is the shit. And though the network has given us some visual hints and clues into the machinations of next season, today we were given some verbal insight into season two, and it comes by the way of Sir Francis Bacon.
It’s so hard to let go of the past, especially when it’s happening in the present (oh that timey-wimey business). Fortunately, Doctor Who fans needn’t look too far to soothe their raw souls at the exit of Eleventh Doctor Matt Smith, as a deleted scene from "The Time of The Doctor" has been released. It’s a Christmas miracle on Boxing Day! Prepare yourselves accordingly with a couple extra Jammy Dodgers for the eating of feelings.
What a bittersweet Christmas. The holiday send-off for Matt Smith was both a reflection on his time — the fondest of farewells for one of the most beloved Doctors — and a rule-breaking send-off into a whole new world of Doctor Who. With a new face and a few ill-colored kidneys, Peter Capaldi capped off an episode that said goodbye to the old Who the way we all come into the world: naked and screaming. We're going to miss you Matt, but wow — what a road set out ahead of us.
When it comes to television, no show is more obsessed with rules and order than BBC’s iconic space-and-time traveling series, Doctor Who. The humanoid Timelord alien cheats death every so often thanks to a process called regeneration. But like all things that outlive the rules that govern them, sometimes things have to change, and for Doctor Who, we are upon its hour of justification: because there’s a new Doctor coming to town during the Christmas Special, “The Time of The Doctor,” but that shouldn’t be possible.
There’s a new teaser out for the second season of BBC America’s breakout hit, Orphan Black, though one would be hard-pressed to suss out any sort of clues from it. The Tatiana Maslany-fronted series about a set of human clones has had a rapid ascension up the Buzz Ladder since it premiered last spring, making it one of the most anticipated returning sophomore series of the year.
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?
If you’re a fan of BBC America’s original series, the sci-fi-ish Orphan Black, the wait for season two has felt like a particularly torturous one. Perhaps it’s because of the wonderful way the series tells the story of genetic clones (all played in by the so-good-it’s-stupid Tatiana Maslany) through discussions of the many issues and struggles of our modern world: autonomy, control, nature versus nurture, evolution, and family. One thing is certain: we're buzzing with anticipation.
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.
If you were watching the Doctor Who 50th Anniversary Special The Day of the Doctor this past weekend, there’s a good chance you saw BBC America’s announcement of the second season premiere of Orphan Black. If not, go ahead and watch it above in all its teasy glory. While the video shows us no actual footage from the new season of the sci-fi series, it does offer a date. Orphan Black will be back for Season 2 on Saturday, April 19 at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT.
