John Hurt as a secret incarnation of The Doctor.

I don't know about anyone else but I'm facinated by the possibility of the John Hurt Doctor being a missing secret Doctor regeneration appearing between Paul McGann and Christpher Eccleston. Probably being the actual manifestation who was involved with the Time War and the destruction of the Time Lords who he has suppressed out of guilt. 

Or is there an alternative explanation, Was William Hartnells incarnation really the first, or did John Hurt come before him in the Doctors timeline? What really prompted him to leave the Time Lords anyway?

Doctor Who finale: Let's bash this out - The Name Of The Doctor. John Hurt. Impossible Clara.

Television

Hey folks. Sorry I'm late with this Series 7 finale post, but I'm in the middle of my second viewing right now. Obviously John Hurt spinning round in the final moments of the episode and the caption "Introducing John Hurt as The Doctor" is an explosive revelation by any stretch of the imagination.

I'm just not sure about the rest of the episode. Not yet anyway. I feel like the Great Intelligence and the Whisper Men were hollow cyphers to move The Doctor to a certain place and time. I don't fully understand how the Great Intelligence needed to dive into The Doctor's time stream considering he was chasing down companions in several different time zones already - how was he moving between them with his Whisper Men?

Journey To The Centre Of The TARDIS - Episode discussion

Television

It's that time of the week again, folks. I was out last night, so only caught Journey To The Centre Of The TARDIS this afternoon.

In a nutshell: A space salvage crew snares the TARDIS, Clara gets lost somewhere inside, and The Doctor tricks the salvage guys into helping him find her. Oh, and there are weird scorched space-zombies lurking in the bowels of the time machine...

The Ice Cream Girls- Who’s The Killer?

Television

 

The Ice Cream Girls is a three-part drama on ITV, based on the novel of the same name by Dorothy Koomson. With the final part on Friday, we will soon find out who really killed Marcus.

The book by Dorothy Koomson was released back in 2010 with the same name and now the drama has arrived on our screens on ITV. I have read the book so I have noticed some differences so far in the drama and the ending is meant to be different also so I'm not sure who the killer is.

Doctor Who: Do we really want to know the Doctor's name?

Television

The series 7 finale of Doctor Who is to be called "The Name Of The Doctor". Steven Moffat is already hard at work teasing this episode, which will be the one which leads into the series' 50th anniversary episode.

Obviously Doctor Who has been the question baked right into the show's title since it began 50 years ago. The poster for the episode has a subtitle of "His secret revealed", but this is a Moffat show and we've been thrown red herrings in the past. Will Moffat really remove a key piece of the mystery that surrounds The Doctor?

Continuum season 2: Episode 3 title and synopsis "Second Chances"

Television

Another great time travel show that's recently come back to our screens is Canadian series Continuum. The show stars Rachel Nichols as Kiera Cameron, an enforcer from the future who is blasted back in time along with a group of futuristic terrorists intent on taking down the evil corporations who control the world in that time.

Season 2 continues with episode 3 - "Second Chances". And it looks like Liber8 are pressing hard with their terrorist agenda by recruiting street thugs. This ties in perfectly with what was said in the season premiere about the group infiltrating business, politics and the criminal underworld. Here's the synopsis:

Doctor Who: Hide - episode discussion

Television

Okay, I heard all your feedback on the other Doctor Who thread. But it seems ridiculous to have comments about a current episode on such an old thread, so I decided to create a thread here for Hide.

I've got to be upfront with you all though - I'm hating the current season of Doctor Who. I think the series has become nonsensical and it has strayed away from the heart and heroism of the Ecclestone/Tennant days.

Spartacus: War Of The Damned - Crixus (and Agron) dead, killed by Romans

Television

Just watched the Separate Paths episode of Spartacus: War Of The Damned. If you're like me and you obsessively read the Wikipedia pages about Spartacus' war, you'll already know that Crixus was destined to lead his own batallion against the Romans, splitting away from Spartacus in the process.

And then you'll know that this is what led to Crixus being killed by the Romans.
