Michael Bay Hopes The Repeater is Happy Now

In yet still more human casting news for Transformers 4, El Explode-o himself must have heard The Repeater’s concerns with casting in TF3, and Mr. Bay throws a bone his way with the news that Doctor Who guest star Sophia Myles, who played Madame de Pompadour (and may return again… question mark?), will be in […]

Textbook charming

So “Doctor Who” starts up again in the fall with a series that will take the show into its 50th anniversary year. And to get things going with a bang — literally, ha ha — will be an episode titled “Asylum of the Daleks.” It is being said the story will feature “every Dalek ever” […]

Seven degrees of Doctor Who

The good Doctor gets around, so he’s likely to bump into other franchises here and there. He gets close – by one degree – to the Transformers when he runs into a character that had just visited the inhabitants of Cybertron.

Towerbot’s swear filter caught a few cosplay-related videos that are NSFW, but rather than purge them from memory, we decided to […]

RIP Sarah Jane Smith

Well that’s a headline I didn’t think I’d be writing anytime soon. It was announced today that the actress who played Sarah Jane Smith in Doctor Who has died of cancer. Elisabeth Sladen was 63, and was universally loved as one of the Doctor’s best ever companions. In fact, he several times referred to Sarah […]
