Doctor Who Christopher Eccleston

On Tuesday, August 13, 2013, BBC Home Entertainment will release Doctor Who: The Green Death (Story 69) Special Edition, which is a 2-disc DVD containing the digitally remastered version of the 6-part Doctor Who series The Green Death, along with bonus features, including some that are new to this edition.

One of the new bonus features is “The Unquiet Dead,” a 23-minute featurette that concludes the 5-part “Doctor Forever” documentary, which takes a look at the “wilderness years” of Doctor Who during its off-air years (1989-2005). The Who fan site Blogtor Who picked out an interesting tidbit in this bonus feature regarding Christopher Eccleston, who played the ninth doctor when the series relaunched in 2005: the actor’s voice almost didn’t make it onto the Canadian broadcasts!

Thor: The Dark World Header

Amid all the reported behind the scenes problems and reshoots, Thor: The Dark World looks mildly impressive, expanding the Marvel Cinematic World by exploring new realms. A second trailer has been released for the sequel, which you can watch here below.

Like every Marvel hero, there is some force that puts the world or their love interest in some sort of danger, and only he has the power to stop it. There are epic worlds, amazing set pieces, and let’s not for get the action sequences. All those epic battles and threats of multi-realm destruction, and still we do not know what Maliketh (Christopher Eccleston) has planned for Thor in this new movie. We briefly see him make a threat to someone very close to Thor in the first trailer, but other than that, we don’t quite know what his motivation is. Which is fine. I think it worked wonderfully for Iron Man 3.

Doctor Who: Series 3, Vol. 2Doctor Who, Vol. 2
Eye Of Ashaya
Written by Andy Diggle, Richard Dinnick, Joshua Hale Fialkov
Art by Josh Adams, Marc Deering, Horatio Domingues, Ruben Gonzalez, Charlie Kirchoff, Andres Ponce, Adrian Salmon
Cover by Mark Buckingham and Charlie Kirchoff
IDW Publishing
Release Date: July 3, 2013
Cover Price: $17.99

The second collection of comics featuring the Matt Smith incarnation of the Doctor follows through a few adventures that will sure to be a delight to fans of the modern Doctor Who series, with a few references to the classic series as well. Set after the Battle of Demon’s Run, but still with the Ponds as the Doctor’s travelling companions, this compilation of short adventures will be a must-read for Whovians.

The first story, The Eye of Ashaya, features the return of Lady Christina from the excellent Planet of the Dead episode from the David Tennant era. The story reunites the Doctor with the professional thief, though in the most unlikely of places – in another galaxy someplace. The tale brings into question how Christina got there in the first place, and also her motives.

Marvel Hammers Us With New ‘Thor: The Dark World’ Stills and Plot Details

Thor: The Dark World

Even in the Marvel Universe, when you’re an ageless Norse god of thunder who can ride the lightning like no one’s business and call a living heavy metal album cover home, you can still tick off your girlfriend.

“Thor still has lot of explaining to do, and a lot of making up,” said Chris Hemsworth, the star of Thor: The Dark World, the next movie in Marvel Studios’ Phase Two line-up following next month’s Iron Man 3. “Even demigods end up in the doghouse, mate. So none of us is safe.”

Speaking to Bryan Alexander of USA Today, Hemsworth and Marvel’s president of production Kevin Feige discussed some modest details of the plot of the Alan Taylor-directed sequel – mostly regarding the relationship between the mighty Thor and his earthbound sweetheart Jane Foster (Natalie Portman), whom he was forced to abandon at the end of the first movie.

As you see in the still below, Portman’s character gets to spend a little time with Thor in Asgard when events on her home planet insist.

Countdown To Doctor Who: 10 Episodes For New Fans To Check Out

10 Episodes For New Fans To Check Out

Series 7 of Doctor Who is only days away, but as the fame of the show increases here in the United States (and elsewhere in the world, too!), I’m increasingly coming across new fans who have either just discovered the show, or are curious in checking it out.

Doctor Who might have originated in 1963, but for a while it was absent from the television screen. In 2005, Russell T. Davies spearheaded the return of Doctor Who, with Christopher Eccleston playing the Ninth Doctor.

Although there is some continuity, the coolest thing about Doctor Who is that you don’t necessarily have to cling to it and follow it from first episode to last. I’m paraphrasing Neil Gaiman here, but you can pretty much take a seat to watch any episode and enjoy it as a standalone adventure – essentially, it’s the story of a time traveler, who spins through space and time in a big blue box.

He materializes in places where something is screwy and wicked, but manages to fix everything and save the universe in the most eccentric and/or ridiculous, yet clever, manner imaginable.

So, are you new to Who? If so, check out a few of our recommended episodes below.

Alice Krige To Have Mysterious Role In ‘Thor: The Dark World’

Alice Krige Plays A Mysterious Role In Thor: The Dark World

To think that we are getting two movies from Marvel Studios again next year, and maybe three the year after, gives me the slight tingles. Iron Man 3 is on its way to completing its production, while Thor: The Dark World is scheduled to shoot sometime next month. The film has already cast Christopher Eccleston as Malekith The Accursed, the film’s primary villain. Now it’s time for director Alan Taylor to turn his attention to the supporting cast, and he is starting off in a pretty big way.

In what is sure to excite some Star Trek fans, Alice Krige has signed on for a mysterious role in Thor: The Dark World. The actress confirmed that she has a role in the film at the Star Trek convention this weekend in Las Vegas, but stopped short of saying who she would be playing. However, she did mention that her role would be relatively small and that she’d be wearing a fair amount of makeup that would make her unrecognizable to some. So it’s probably safe to say that she won’t be playing a human or any of the deities in Asgard.

Christopher Eccleston Gets A Villainous Gig In ‘Thor: The Dark World’

Christopher Eccleston To Play As Malekith The Accursed

Due to his commitment to the NBC drama Hannibal, Mads Mikkelsen is unable to play the role of the villain in Thor: The Dark World. Luckily another actor has stepped in to fill his shoes.

Christopher Eccleston will play the role of Malekith The Accursed in the upcoming film. The Hollywood Reporter confirmed the casting along with the identity of the villain. Like Captain America: The Winter Soldier, the answer as to who the villain was lied in the film’s subtitle, The Dark World.

Eccleston is best known for his roles in Danny Boyle’s Shallow Grave and 28 Days Later and is known for being the ninth Doctor on the hit show Doctor Who.

Doctor Who Cubeecraft

There’s been a cool little crafty fan movement online for some while now, especially from the folks over at Cubeecraft, for people to put together their own cuby geek goodies using paper craft. Now, thanks to some dedicated time and modifications by Chris aka ~CyberDrone over at Deviantart.com, you can now construct your own TARDIS from Doctor Who.

And it’s not just one TARDIS we’re talking here… there are several variations including the Bad Wolf TARDIS from the David Tennant and Christopher Eccleston periods, a classic black and white TARDIS from the early William Hartnell and Patrick Troughton days, and even the rare pink TARDIS from one of Sylvester McCoy‘s episodes. Yes, you read that correctly: a PINK TARDIS!
