Torchwood S4 Miracle Day

Torchwood – Miracle Day

Torchwood, the BBC sci-fi show, and Doctor Who spin-off, returns to our screens soon for a fourth series entitled Torchwood: Miracle Day. Having previously been set largely in Cardiff for it’s first three seasons, this new ongoing story sees some significant changes. It moves on to a global stage, with adventures set this time in America and further afield. The core of the show looks set to remain similar, with the three main characters that survived the events of Children Of Earth all returning. And the writing duties being led and overseen by Torchwood‘s original creator, and previous Doctor Who

Doctor Who A Good Man Goes To War

Doctor Who – A Good Man Goes To War (S06E07)

Doctor Who A Good Man Goes To War, the mid-season finale, attracted 5.5 million viewers according to overnight figures. The long-running secret of River Song‘s true identity was finally revealed. Viewers also learnt more about Amy‘s baby, and why she is so important to the Doctor’s enemies. It also saw returns for many of the show’s monsters and allies from recent years. Above all it tells an epic tale that spanned the vastness of space and time. So did Steven Moffat’s story intentions win the war? Or did it fail to translate from script to screen, just like the Tardis

Sarah Michelle Gellar Returns To TV In Ringer

Ringer – Sarah Michelle Gellar’s TV Return

Sarah Michelle Gellar finally makes a return to television later this year in a new drama show called Ringer. And almost as if to make up for the long wait, plays two characters rather than just one. Gellar, in her first tv role since Buffy The Vampire Slayer finished in 2003, will play identical twin sisters Bridget and Siobhan. Twin sisters who have lived very different lives from each other. After a successful pilot episode, Ringer has been picked up for a full series by US network The CW. It will air later this year, after that it will hopefully

Doctor Who The Almost People S06E06

Doctor Who – The Almost People (S06E06)

The Almost People was the second episode of a two part Doctor Who adventure that attracted 5.0 million viewers according to unofficial overnight figures. Not only did it continue and conclude the previous week’s proceedings, but it also finished on what was (and had been hyped up in the press and online) something of a major ‘to be continued’ cliffhanger. This will inevitably change how the rest of the series develops from here on in. Was it a case of double the fun, or did it become one of the many almost rans? I found The Almost People to be

Coronation Street John Stape Colin Fishwick

Coronation Street – End Of The Road For Colin Fishwick

Soap operas have long lived off far-fetched, outlandish plots and storylines. But very few have reached the heights of the John Stape/Colin Fishwick saga, which looks like it’s about to reach it’s conclusion. Some special episodes will air over the coming few days on ITV. Through a long line of bad luck, bad choices, and bad behaviour, the story of John Stape becoming the “accidental serial killer” of the street has turned in to one of the best ever to grace the cobbles. It’s been full of black humour, farce, and surprisingly, a great deal of empathy for the character

All Watched Over By Machines Of Loving Grace

All Watched Over By Machines Of Loving Grace

All Watched Over By Machines Of Loving Grace is a three part documentary that began on BBC Two this week. It’s brought to you by acclaimed filmmaker Adam Curtis. In this first film, Curtis attempted to explore the relationship between humans and the machines they have built. How it has shaped everything we see in the world today. From the beliefs and writings about a prototype for a future society by 50s novelist Ayn Rand and her ‘disciples’, to the similar ideals shared by digital entrepreneurs that created ‘Silicon Valley’ in the 1990s. The two stories were woven together in
