BBC - Doctor Who - Tue, 04/08/2014 - 3:57am
Ben Miller is set to guest star opposite Peter Capaldi when the new series of Doctor Who returns this autumn.
Commenting on his role, Ben Miller said: ‘As a committed Whovian I cannot believe my luck in joining the Twelfth Doctor for one of his inaugural adventures. My only worry is that they'll make me leave the set when I'm not filming.’
Miller achieved fame as half of comedy duo Armstrong and Miller before success in dramas, including Primeval and more recently, as DI Richard Poole, the central character in the first two series of the BBC’s Death in Paradise.
Miller’s partner in comedy, Alexander Armstrong, appeared in Doctor Who’s 2011 Christmas Special, playing Reg Arwell, but it’s Miller’s first time on the show and he’ll be starring in an episode written by Mark Gatiss.
Steven Moffat, lead writer and executive producer, added: ‘Mark Gatiss has written us a storming villain for his new episode, and with Capaldi in the TARDIS, we knew we needed somebody special to send everybody behind the sofa. And quite frankly, it's about time Ben Miller was in Doctor Who!’
Other familiar faces confirmed to join Peter Capaldi and Jenna Coleman in the new series, which will TX on BBC One later this year, include Tom Riley and Keeley Hawes.

Neill Gorton has created many of the memorable monsters who have featured in Doctor Who since its return in 2005 and on Saturday, 29 March he’ll be giving a free masterclass about his work!
Neill is a prosthetics designer and the director of Millennium FX, the BAFTA award winning make-up and special effects company responsible for the look of countless aliens who have crossed the Doctor’s path, as well as characters featured in BBC shows such as The Sarah Jane Adventures, Wizards vs. Aliens and Being Human.
The masterclass is part of BBC Radio 4’s Character Invasion, a fascinating project which combines an on-air celebration of how the characters we love have been created and bought to life, along with a day of free events across the country.
Neill’s masterclass will take place at Cardiff’s Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama and begins at 1.30pm on Saturday, 29 March. It will offer an amazing insight into how some of some of television’s most striking monsters and aliens are created using cutting edge prosthetics, animatronics and special make-up FX.
You can apply for a maximum of four tickets per household and can register for tickets at any time until Thursday, 13 March at 4pm. For more details, including how to apply for tickets, visit the event information page or find out more about BBC Radio 4’s Character Invasion.
Please note, those attending Neill’s event must be 8 years-old or over and under 16s must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

BBC - Doctor Who - Fri, 03/07/2014 - 11:29am
The man who put the Doctor aboard a cursed pirate ship and took us to parts of the TARDIS we’d never seen before has been confirmed as a writer on the forthcoming 8th series of Doctor Who.
Steve Thompson will write the as-yet-unnamed fifth episode of the series to be shown later this year.
Steve Thompson has also provided scripts for BBC1’s Sherlock such as The Blind Banker, series two finale The Reichenbach Fall and The Sign of Three which was broadcast in January.
Filming is underway on Peter Capaldi’s first series as The Doctor. He’ll be joined by Jenna Coleman as Clara and a new recurring character, Danny Pink played by Samuel Anderson.
The new series, to be screened on BBC1, will also feature episodes by lead writer and series producer Steven Moffat.

TECHNICAL SPECS: First aired Oct.23 2009. IN THIS ONE... Our friends help Eve to her Ship, K9's back as regular, and Rani's bad future comes to pass and is undone. REVIEW: On the one hand, I appreciate the fact they've attempted a story without any villains.TARDIS MusingsIn which the Doctor makes a mysterious rendezvous with a massive spacecraft. He leaves Leela in the TARDIS with K9, and disables the scanner to prevent her from seeing what he is up to. On his return, he refuses to tell her what he is up to, and sets the co-ordinates for Gallifrey.Siskoid's Blog of Geekery: Doctor Who #831: The Wedding of Sarah Jane Smith Part 1"Nobody over 22 should be doing that in public actually at all."

The Black Eyed Peas are at number one now with "Meet Me Halfway," with Cheryl Cole, Ke$ha, and Britney Spears also charting.Siskoid's Blog of Geekery: Doctor Who #832: The Wedding of Sarah Jane Smith Part 2"The Trickster doesn't want us helping Sarah, so he's separated us, trapped us in two different seconds." TECHNICAL SPECS: First aired Oct.30 2009. IN THIS ONE... The kids help the Doctor stop the Trickster and Sarah Jane must give up her love.An Adventure in Space and Time Soundtrack ReviewIn preparation for this review, I had the pleasure of re-watching An Adventure in Space and Time a couple of weeks back. As an emotional, often hilarious depiction of the team of wonderful and unlikely people who started Doctor Who, it remains my favourite BBC movie of all time - and thus entirely warrants a score to fit that demanding bill.Siskoid's Blog of Geekery: Doctor Who #833: The Eternity Trap Part 1"I bet he made a mean balloon giraffe at kids' parties." TECHNICAL SPECS: First aired Nov.5 2009. IN THIS ONE...

The team's final battle with Erasmus Darkening to hopefully free the ghosts.Philip Sandifer: Writer: Time Can Be Rewritten Final: The Day of the DoctorWhich makes it all the stranger that he doesn't.

Davies deliberately inserts a gap between The Waters of Mars and The End of Time, even opting to develop the running Queen Elizabeth I joke within it.Siskoid's Blog of Geekery: Doctor Who #835: Mona Lisa's Revenge Part 1"Everything comes down to maths." "See, not art. Art is in the soul. You don't think it, you feel it." TECHNICAL SPECS: First aired Nov.12 2009. IN THIS ONE... The Mona Lisa walks out of her painting and she's a gun-totting alien with a Northern accent. (Other planets really do have a North.)Philip Sandifer: Writer: Outside The Government: The GiftLast War in Albion will be up tomorrow. It's November 19 th, 2009. The charts haven't changed. STS-129, the third-from-last flight of the Space Shuttle Atlantis, launches. Barack Obama makes an international trip to China. The Original of Laura, an unfinished novel by Nabokov, is published over his wish that it be burnt upon his death.Siskoid's Blog of Geekery: Doctor Who #836: Mona Lisa's Revenge Part 2"I know art is subjective, but I think she looks as pretty as a picture." TECHNICAL SPECS: First aired Nov.13 2009. IN THIS ONE... The kids fight paintings come to life to get Sarah Jane back.
