Doctor Who: Why Eccleston left + more news and previews
Christopher Eccleston reveals that he left the show because he "didn’t enjoy the environment and the culture that we, the cast and crew, had to work in."

I really feel that, because it kind of broke the mould and it helped to reinvent it. I’m very proud of it." [BBC]. Here are more "Doctor Who" bites:

New season of Torchwood coming to Starz
The BBC has announced a new season of "Torchwood", which will be produced by BBC Wales, BBC Worldwide and US premium cable network Starz. Both John Barrowman and Eve Myles will reprise their roles of Captain Jack Harkness and Gwen, respectively, and series creator Russell T. Davies will oversee production.

We have a long history of working with many U.S. networks but it is incredibly exciting to be working with Starz for the first time, as well as to be reunited with the best of British in Russell, Jane and Julie. Torchwood will burst back onto the screen with a shocking and moving story with global stakes and locations that will make it feel bigger and bolder than ever, said Ben Stephenson, Controller, BBC Drama Commissioning.

In an interview with THR, Davies confirmed the show will be an extension, rather than a new version or reboot, of the UK series (the first episode of the season is actually the same pilot he wrote for Fox):

It’s very much the next step. It’s not a new version, it’s not a reboot. We’re simply moving countries. The show was previously a format show — monster of the week. The breakthrough was "Children of Earth" and that it became one long story. It’s not going to be ‘Lost’ and take 20 years to find out what’s going on. It’s going to have a most remarkable conclusion after 10 episodes.

We’re simply going to tell a good story. I wrote the pilot 7 months ago irregardless of network. BBC1 is a prime-time channel, but a brave channel. I don’t worry about content.

Read the complete interview with Davies and Starz CEO Chris Albrecht at THR. You can also watch a video interview with Davies at EW’s Michael Ausiello further reports that a lot of the show will be shot on location in Los Angeles.

More details on the LOST epilogue
Jorge Garcia (Hurley) has revealed new details about the "LOST" epilogue which will be featured on the season six DVD and Blu-ray (releasing August 24). Speaking from the Monte Carlo Television Festival, Garcia revealed to E! Online a few details about the epilogue, which he says will answer a few lingering questions:

"It will address some of the issues, like the food drops, and it will deal with what happened on the island after Hurley took over and how he handled things… It will give you a taste of what took place after Hurley took over as the new number one. There’s a little epilogue thing going on with the DVD."

Previously it’s been reported that Walt (Malcolm David Kelley) would be featured in the bonus content, but Garcia wouldn’t confirm or deny: "There are other people in it, but I’m not going to tell you who."

SCI-FI RATINGS (Based on final national numbers unless otherwise noted) [@TravisYanan]

"Stargate Universe" closed out its first season with 1.47 million viewers tuning in for "Incursion, Part 2" (6/11/2010). That was an increase of 25% over the previous episode (which hit a series low 1.18 million viewers). The first season averaged 1.68 million viewers, however the second half was considerably weaker than the first half of the season: 1.95 million viewers vs. 1.45M.

The third season premiere of "True Blood" drew an impressive 5.1 million viewers and a 2.9 A18-49 rating last Sunday. That was a jump of nearly 40% from the second season premiere (3.7M). — back to previous position

Episode 5×08 of "Doctor Who", "The Hungry Earth", increased to 6.49 million viewers with the final ratings (6.01M on BBC One and 0.48M on BBC HD). That was an increase of nearly 2 million viewers from the preliminary overnight ratings. That overnight rating was the lowest number since it returned in 2005, but that’s no longer the case (the final figure beats three David Tennant episodes). We also have ratings for episode 5×09 – "Cold Blood": 7.49 million viewers (7.04M on BBC One and 0.45M on BBC HD) and episode 5×10 – "Vincent and the Doctor": 6.76 million viewers (6.29M on BBC One and 0.47M on BBC HD).

Meanwhile, in preliminary figures, episode 5×11 – "The Lodger" drew 4.56 million viewers (4.31M on BBC One and 0.25M on BBC HD). That’s a new low for the season. However, episode 5×12 – "The Pandorica Opens" averaged 5.9 million viewers (5.4M on BBC One and 0.5M on BBC HD) according to preliminary numbers. Over in Canada, meanwhile, the episode "Amy’s Choice" (episode 5×07) drew nearly 400,000 viewers when it aired two Saturday’s ago (6/5/2010), making SPACE the most-watched channel in the country on that day during its timeslot: "This is a big, awesome deal for us – we are thrilled that so many of you are loving the new Doctor." [The Doctor Who News Page, (2), (3), (4), (5) SPACE]

The first four episodes of "Doctor Who" to premiere in May were the most-requested programs of the month on BBC’s iPlayer — led by the nearly 1.4M requests notched by "Amy’s Choice" — according to BBC iStats. [The Doctor Who News Page] — back to previous position

I’ve been dying for the return of Warehouse 13 and Eureka!

I’m so happy to hear that there will be some crossover episodes!

Too bad Smallville has such a weak female lead actress. Ah, well, the Hollywood “casting couch” has inflicted a number of dim-witted, non-talented wannabees on us. Such is life!

Isn’t Big Bang Theroy considered genre/sf? I didn’y see it on the list of Comic Con stuff. And there’s more than what’s on that list but they’re not exactly genre. Glee? lol! GEEZ,it’s gonna be a busy weekend,lol! Have fun y’all!

Oooops….I meant Big Bang THEORY of course! I really don’t like spelling mistakes,lol.

That H2G2/Dalek piece is absolutely brilliant. Only wish Peter Jones could’ve been the narrator.

The Game of Thrones teaser trailer is…well, a teaser. Nothing shown really. I love Sean Bean, but I’m not sure he’s Ned Stark. Still, I’ll def. be watching.

The thought of a Star Wars comedy appalled me, but now I know Seth Green is involved I think I’m kinda looking forward to it!

New Back to the Future and Jurassic Park browser games are coming out in winter ;)

I’d rather have FlashForward back.

Gee. Voltron gets an animated series, and Star Trek does not. They’re never going to keep the young ‘uns interested until it gets its due on Nick or Cartoon Network like all the other major super-hero franchises (and Star Wars).

That’s when ya brainwash ’em!

#2 As opposed to a male lead actress?

Seriously people, what’s the deal with bashig Erica Durance? She’s an excellent Lois Lane. Leave here alone.

Karen Gillan is one hottie!
That said, I’ve got to admit that the latest Doctor Who episodes kinda didn’t live up to my expectations – hard to explain why…

When will a new Trek series come out? I have a good idea for one…

I’m slightly confused. What makes “Spartacus” a “genre/sci-fi” show? Admittedly I haven’t seen it (don’t get Starz) but isn’t it just a sand-and-sandals historical drama?

Yes, # 2’s response was pretty irrelevant to this article; however, she is pretty weak. After six seasons I still don’t care for her.

“You’re the captain now Mr. Kirk!”

No mention of BluRay release of season one of Human Target??? Just watched the season finale last night!!! Best episode of the season! With a surprise genre special guest star!!!!!!

The Doctor Who / Hitchhikers Guide to the Daleks video is fantastic! Animation is great, script is funny, and the voiceover sounds perfect. Very enjoyable!

If only the Star Wars ‘comedy’ could just be set in some ‘Mos Eisley – type cantina bar’ of some sort, kind of like a ‘CHEERS’ sitcom setting…with the weekly ups and downs of the local barflies (giant ones in some cases!) being the set-up…and with it’s own regular ‘Norm’-type denizen cadging free drinks!! Guess that wouldn’t fit for the kiddies though. Pity.

And as a Dalek fan, I bloody hate the multi-colored re-designs on show in the latest series. They should have kept them ALL black and silver! Not at all menacing in primary colors now. :(

Saw the latest Doctor Who episode. One hell of a cliffhanger.

Doctor Who continues to rock!

Seriously Harry. What’s your damage? Did you meet Ms. Durance at a convention and she asked you to shave before signing your copy of Superman’s Girlfriend, Lois Lane #14?

Smallville was barely mentioned in the article but you had to throw in some bashing? Give it a rest. We are all PAINFULLY aware of your opinion on Erica Durance.

Move along.

Weren’t the Star Wars prequels computer-generated comedies?



I’m really looking forward to Eureka and Warehouse 13 returning to SyFy . It’ll be nice to have something I can actually enjoy. Most of their shows like Stargate:Universe, I could not watch if they were paying me to do so.

Wasn’t the bar in DS9 a homage to cheers, morn=norm

# 21 – I’m sorry, but I am a fan on the prequels, as well as the new animated series now on Cartoon Network. I know a lot of people hated the prequels, and thats their opinion. Still, I thought they were great!

#23 Yes.
I’m very impressed with what the new Who team has been doing.
What a relief!
Am I actually liking him better than Tennant?

Gosh whiz, the entire cast of Smallville sure are swell! What talented actors! They all put Laurence Olivier to shame, making him come off looking like a rank amateur! Ms. Durance could teach Meryl Streep a few things! This cast should do a production of Hamlet!! Wow!!!

There! Happy now?

You’re so cool, Harry Ballz.


#26 Sarcasm really doesn’t become you. I am not for a second suggesting that the cast of Smallville are the finest actors ever but they ALL know their characters very well and do a very good job.

Might I suggest that you don’t constantly criticise it in such a strong way because there are people on this site who really like that show and its cast and really don’t appreciate the hard nosed criticism. I would respect your opinions on the shows I don’t like, please extend me the same courtesy.


you’ve got a deal! I will not be pointing out Erica Durance’s deficiencies in the future. They really are self-evident. Let the poor performances by that sad excuse for an actress speak for itself.

The only reason I commented to begin with is because I have the silly notion that anyone hired to perform in front of the camera should have at least a hint of talent in the first place. From day one her voice has quaked from nervousness, and you can see the wheels turning in her head that she is making an attempt at “acting”. Sad.

The only thing left to ask is who she ____ to get the part!

‘Nuff said!

You’re really not being fair. Harry. Seriously, what is your problem? I really dislike your tone. I, for one am a huge fan of Smallville and think that she’s an excellent Lois Lane.

Here’s a thought. If you don’t like her then don’t watch it and don’t go criticising it so blatently. Who on tv do you consider to be a good actress out of interest?

Anyone else agree that he’s being petty and unfair?

Let me clarify something: I like the show Smallville, just not Durance. Why should I stop watching a show I like just because one part stinks?

A good actress on TV?

Allison Mack is very good on Smallville and I’ll tell you who I think is a friggin’ amazing actress is Anna Torv on Fringe! Actually, Torv should be in the movies, she’s too good for TV.

As for TV actors, John Glover is a very good actor and I was sorry to see him written out of Smallville.

A really bad actor is Joshua Jackson on Fringe. Torv must secretly cringe when she has to do scenes with him! That’s what she must whisper to her friends, “I cringe when I do Fringe!”

too much bloody vampire bollocks on the box!
Nice to see that Cmdr decker is still working though!

“Beeeelaaaaaayyyy thaaaat oooordeeeeerrr!!!”

If you were disappointed with the “Lost:” finale check out Choke on Funny’s review on YouTube.

He expresses your frustration. I just hope Damon Lindelof doesn’t suggest that the alternate universe is a world that the crew made together so they find each other. And Jim Kirk if you meet your dead dad in a church, “You’re dead, Jim.”

Harry, I think there’s less and less of a distinction between quality acting on TV and in film nowadays. There’s better storytelling now, and people have better opportunities to grow into better characters.


Maybe, but I know what I like and I can’t stand Erica Durance as an actor…she stinks to high heaven!

There are so many GOOD actors around, why cast a really bad one?

Wow. Great list of Classic Horror Movie. I havent seen all of the movies on the list but it looks interesting.
