Based on the Emmy Award-winning series treasured by a generation of viewers, Disney XD's animated comedy-adventure series DuckTales chronicles the high-flying adventures of Duckburg's most famous trillionaire Scrooge McDuck (voiced by David Tennant), his mischief-making triplet grandnephews, Huey, Dewey and Louie (Danny Pudi, Ben Schwartz and Bobby Moynihan), temperamental nephew Donald Duck (Tony Anselmo) and the trusted McDuck Manor team: big-hearted, fearless chauffeur and pilot Launchpad McQuack (Beck Bennett), no-nonsense housekeeper Mrs. Beakley (Toks Olagundoye) and Mrs. Beakley's granddaughter, Webby Vanderqu…

Russell T Davies Reveals "Gridlock" Is His Favourite David Tennant Era Doctor Who Episode

Image
Whilst taking part in a podcast to promote his new book, Now We Are Six Hundred, former Doctor Who showrunner Russell T Davies was asked by a fan what his favourite Doctor Who episode to write and make was, he replied:

“That’s the tricky one because, of course, they are all my children and you can’t have favourite children – yes, you can!

The one I have a particularly sentimental fondness for is an episode called Gridlock. Simply because it’s the first script I wrote entirely in Cardiff. I used to shuttle to and fro between Manchester and Cardiff and that one I was entirely in Cardiff when I finished and love it for that reason.

Making it was mad and brilliant and very, very difficult for the team.

It’s about a 23 year old traffic jam, only Doctor Who could do that – you wouldn’t get that on Star Trek! It’s a purely Doctor Who idea.”

The episode, which premiered in 2007, saw The Doctor take Martha to New Earth, where he must battle a powerful old enemy and have a fateful meeting with…

Mary Queen Of Scots With David Tennant To Be Released November 2018

Image
Focus Features have confirmed that their feature film Mary Queen Of Scots will receive a limited release in the UK on 2nd November 2018. 

The film, directed by Josie Rourke, follows the early life of Mary Stuart, played by Saoirse Ronan, and her relationship with Elizabeth I (Margot Robbie), her rival in power and love. Both were female regents in a male world; Mary, who became Queen of Scotland when six days old and Queen of France aged 16, was seen as a threat to Elizabeth's sovereignty when she mounted a claim to the English throne. 

David Tennant has a supporting role as Anthony Babington, an English nobleman convicted of plotting the assassination of Elizabeth I of England and conspiring with the imprisoned Mary, Queen of Scots. The "Babington Plot" and Mary's involvement in it were the basis of the treason charges against her which led to her execution.

Other cast include Jack Lowden, Joe Alwyn, Gemma Chan, Martin Compston, Ismael Cordova, Brendan Coyle, Ian Hart,…

VIDEO: Preview Clip Of Next Week's W1A

Image
The BBC have released a preview clip of episode three of the third series of their award winning sitcom W1A.

W1A is the creation of writer and director John Morton and is set in the BBC, although it is said to be a satire on all labyrinthine management structures. The series follows on from Twenty Twelve, which wryly mocked the organisation around the London Olympic Games, and tracks the next career steps of former Olympic Deliverance Committee lead Ian Fletcher (Hugh Bonneville) and inept PA Siobhan Sharp (Jessica Hynes) as they take on new roles in the BBC. W1A utilises the same spoof fly-on-the-wall documentary approach as Twenty Twelve, complemented by David Tennant’s dry
narration.



Neil Reid struggles to see the benefit of the Syntipatico upgrade.

Episode 3

The search for new ways of saving money at the BBC continues - particularly important in the light of charter renewal.

As head of better Anna Rampton says, 'The fact is this is about finding more ways of doing less of what…
