We All Missed This Huge Detail About Jodie Whittaker’s Doctor Who Outfit

Love it or hate it (and some people really do hate it), it’s hard to forget the newly-unveiled costume that Jodie Whittaker will be wearing in Doctor Who season 11. There’s the rainbow-striped shirt, the Tardis-blue culottes, the bright yellow braces, the cream-coloured coat… Actually, scratch that last one.

Yes, your eyes have been deceiving you. According to an insider on the show, the Thirteenth Doctor’s coat isn’t cream-coloured or grey or beige at all but is actually a very light blue. Doctor Who‘s Brand Manager Edward Russell has specified that it’s only due to some unhelpful lightning in the promo image that it appears to be a different hue. In the flesh, it’s actually “a cross between sky blue and lilac.”

You heard right maybe a cross between sky blue and lilac

Luke Newberry interview: In The Flesh, Home Front

Louisa Mellor Apr 21, 2017

We chatted to actor Luke Newberry about his BBC Radio 4 Home Front role, In The Flesh, getting his start in acting and more…

“I’m still umm-ing, how annoying for you!” he says, but interviewing Luke Newberry isn’t annoying in the least. He’s at pains to give proper answers to questions, literally so judging by some of the noises he makes in our half-hour chat. His frustrated ‘aaghs’ and ‘ooohs’ and ‘umms’ are the sound of someone who doesn’t have a ready-made patter and who doesn’t want to just say any old thing.

‘Tales from the Crypt,’ David Chase Miniseries, ‘MTV Unplugged’ and More: A Status Check on Shows in TV Purgatory

  • Indiewire
Television is a fast-paced business, where a show can be written, developed, ordered, cast, produced, and aired all within the course of a year. But sometimes, executives get ahead of themselves and shows are announced prematurely, or circumstances change, forcing delay.

IndieWire combed through some high-profile TV announcements from the past few years that haven’t yet seen the light of day, and asked their status. Some are still in the works; some are still “in development,” which could be code for “we don’t want to admit yet that this show is dead”; and some have quietly faded away.

Salem Season 3 Episode 7 Review: The Man Who Was Thursday

  • TVfanatic
Did that just happen?!

We need to take a moment to breathe and process the development.

They actually did it...

On Salem Season 3 Episode 7, the dark lord was quite literally ripped apart at the seams in one of the best moments of the series. Their biggest enemy is perhaps dead. It was amazing!

Kudos to the special effects team and writers on Salem; this was a surprising curve ball in the final four episodes. I did not expect this twist yet. Did you?

Everything featured had the makings of a great climax. The location of the woods paired with the dark and dreary vibe added to the tension. And once the vines started grabbing him and ripping him apart, it worked perfectly. The prosthetics almost looked realistic.

Dark Lord: You think a few rotten vines can hold me?

Essex Elder: Once, you were the source of Mary's power. Not anymore!

Crazyhead episode 1 review

Louisa Mellor Oct 19, 2016

Does E4 comedy horror Crazyhead, from the creator of Misfits, deserve the title of the British Buffy?

This review contains spoilers.

See related Revisiting Star Trek Tng: The Mind's Eye Revisiting Star Trek Tng: The Host Revisiting Star Trek Tng: Half A Life

Two new youth-skewed fantasy series are arriving on UK TV this week, both billed as 'the British Buffy'. One is Howard Overman’s horror comedy Crazyhead, the other is Patrick NessDoctor Who spin-off Class.

Glossing over the fact that Cbbc has been quietly airing a British Buffy since 2012 in the form of the terrific Wolfblood, on the surface, comparisons to the Joss Whedon series make sense. Class is set in a high school that’s a hub for all things alien and strange while Crazyhead is about a young woman who discovers she’s not a slayer but a “seer”, someone able

The Living And The Dead episode 1 review

Episode one of handsome new BBC supernatural period drama The Living And The Dead feat. Colin Morgan ends on a gripping hook…

This review contains episode 1 spoilers.

Ashley Pharoah, the creator of The Living And The Dead, made his name writing genre TV with a twist. He and Matthew Graham added a time travel mystery to the police procedural in Life On Mars and Ashes To Ashes, then spliced the supernatural with court drama in Eternal Law.

Pharoah’s new series The Living And The Dead plays the same game. It’s a traditional Victorian ghost story with Something Else Going On. Two events in the first episode alert viewers to this fact – the vapour trail of a modern airplane in the 1894 Somerset sky and the closing sight of a twenty-first century woman, iPad in hand, walking around the nineteenth-century farmhouse in which the story is set.

The Aliens: E4’s furiously fun new sci-fi comedy

The Aliens, from the producers of Misfits, is raucous fun with a social message. Here’s what to expect from E4’s new sci-fi comedy…

Whenever humans imagine being invaded by an alien race, it’s pretty much always a big deal. Flying saucers land and what follows are mind-blowing technological developments, intergalactic war, the White House being evaporated, or Sarah Jessica Parker’s head winding up on a Chihuahua’s body. Rarely is first contact no biggie.

Except in E4’s The Aliens, a new comedy sci-fi written by Fintan Ryan (Rev, In The Flesh, Never Better) set forty years after an extra-terrestrial craft crash-lands in the North Sea. Out of it came a few hundred humanoid aliens who travelled ashore on rafts and were, for a short time, integrated into British society before political resentment and intolerance eventually forced them into a ghetto.

The Fades: celebrating BBC Three originals

With great writing, a strong cast and a gripping story, Jack Thorne’s 2011 supernatural drama The Fades was one of the best…

According to former BBC Three controller Zai Bennett, fans of The Fades have themselves to blame for Jack Thorne’s superb fantasy drama not being recommissioned. We were too few and too old.

The BBC Three remit aimed to attract 16-34 year olds, Bennett explained at the 2012 Edinburgh International Television Festival. Because The Fades found more love among those with mortgages and middle-age spread than it did with fresh-faced teens and twenty-somethings, it didn’t fulfil that remit.

However much critical acclaim (plaudits from The Guardian, The Telegraph, some website called Den Of Geek) or however many awards (a Bafta for Best Drama, nominations for Best Writer, wins for Best Music and Digital Effects) The Fades received, the kids weren’t down so it had to go.

Being Human: celebrating BBC Three originals

Next on our list of salutes to BBC Three geek favourites: Toby Whithouse's much-missed Being Human...

It started off as a joke, a silly fantasy twist on a generic sitcom premise, but Being Human somehow, against more odds than we remember years later, ended up becoming one of the defining British genre shows of the decade. It was both of its time back in the vampire-saturated late noughties and classic in the way few shows manage to be. It was lightning in a bottle, and much of its power came from just how unexpected it was.

Back in 2009, BBC Three wasn't known for quality genre drama. The BBC arm aimed at tempting the eyeballs of the notoriously difficult to engage 16-34 age bracket, the channel had been going through an identity crisis since its inception and needed something to define it as an entity in and of itself.

Cheer on local talent with these potentially great UK films from 2016, including drama, comedy, action, horror, fantasy & more…

While Batman Vs Superman, Captain America: Civil War, X-Men Apocalypse and other mega franchises are expected to dominate cinemas in 2016, let’s hear it for the films below. None are sequels, few have titanic budgets, all of them are British and each of them has the potential to be great.

2016 looks to be a particularly strong year for UK crime drama, with Ben Wheatley’s Free Fire, Adam Smith’s Trespass Against Us and Michael Apted’s Unlocked on their way. Military thrillers are also well represented this year, with Gavin Hood’s Eye In The Sky, Fernando Coimbra’s Sand Castle, and Simon West’s Stratton incoming. There’s also comedy, fantasy, drama, horror and even a musical waiting for you below.

As fans of In the Flesh know, BBC Three cancelled the supernatural TV series after two seasons due to budget cuts. (The show aired on BBC America here in the United States.)
