About that Selfie trailer: geez, Karen just can't seem to get away from guys with bow ties, can she?

If they did a compilation of the first doctor running they wouldn't have enough to fill a three minute song.

Maybe the same person who thought remaking Broadchurch with David Tennant in the US. I couldn't resist looking at the trailer for Gracpoint. Oh the humanity! The accent is so ludicrous I am cringing with embarrasment for poor David. The internet has already spoken and golly I hope the poor man doesn't read Twitter today. Please FOX, just quietly kill this or maybe get someone to lipsynch for the poor lamb, for the sake of David's dignity.

What the hell were FOX thinking in ordering a full series sight unseen and not screen testing David for his accent? And he andtherest of the cast and crew have had to spend months away from their family for something that should never been greenlighted.

Maybe the announcement of his casting in Broadchurch 2 was designed to draw attention away from the awful reveal today.

So, there goes any chance now of David emulating Karen or Matt in having a US career.....

Who on Earth saw the 10th Doctor running and thought 'I bet everybody would like to see 50 minutes of that!'?

Good to see Karen's doing so well for herself after DW :)

I like the poster on top. It reminds me of the very Star Wars-y artwork for the DVD-releases of Classic serials.

"Selfie" looks and sounds unbelievably terrible.

So happy to see Karen's career is running smoothly. It's great to see Who-stars still doing well after they leave! :D

Pretty neat videos this week, loved the re-edited saving Gallifrey.  BBC needs to hire that fellow for a job!  The prequel however kind of irked me, the guy tried WAY to hard to be like Matt Smith and his doctor.  If it's supposed to be a prequel he should of been more similar to the first doctor, not to mention the whole starting with a regeneration doesn't make sense because of his regeneration limit.  If anything he should of dressed up in the 1st doctor's costume and acted like a younger version of him.  Can't blame him for trying though.

Selfie just seems like it's gonna be a lacklustre type of comedy that doesn't age well, despite having Karen and Sulu, I mean Harold, I mean John Cho (;P) whom I both love as main characters. I know it's ABC but... I'm starting to worry about this. :/ I'm still gonna watch it though out of devotion for one of its actors. Just like I'm gonna watch How I Met Your Dad. 


Speaking of American television, will anyone be watching Gotham?! It seems amazing!

Nice to see Karen Gillan doing well for herself after Doctor Who. She's a great actress and seems like a genuinely nice and down to earth person. I wish her all the success in the world. I look forward to seeing her in Selfie, A Touch of Cloth and Guardians of the Galaxy later this year :)

Fantastic as usual, these always bring a smile to my face!

Although my inner nerd is is looking at that one Dalek with switched gun and plunger with a raised eyebrow.

They should've included the bit of that clip with Jack in 9's cameo shot! It would've put Jack into the 50th and made that scene that much more exciting.

The 10th doctor did a awful lot of running..

And love the artwork and that re-edit

Huh, I guess the creator of the Doctors save Gallifrey video doesn't like the War Doctor.

@KarenBee  Of course David can have a US career. Just so long as he does roles that don't require him to change his accent -- or maybe only as much as Sean Connery does his.

Well, it's based on My Fair Lady. So it could be good. Maybe.

@Timhogan  I think it was a prequel to a fan film called 'Doctor Who', not a prequel to the series itself. I did wonder that at first, it's an easy mistake to make.

It kinda would've made it a bit too obvious that it was archive footage and ruined the scene because he is talking about the extrapolator which was a major plot point of Boom Town.

A surprising amount of people replace him with number 8 in re-edits of that scene...
