Doctor Who Season 11 Trailer Released

BBC America has posted the first trailer for the “series 11” of sci-fi staple Doctor Who, after premiering it at San Diego Comic Con on Thursday.

The upcoming season will be the first time in the show’s 55-year history where the main protagonist, “The Doctor,” will be played by a woman. — the always excellent Jodie Whittaker (Broadchurch).

The Doctor is the last of an immortal race of Time Lords. She protects the galaxy from all manner of alien threats, but has a peculiar affinity for the denizens of a backwater planet called “Earth.” When a Time Lord dies she (or he) “regenerates” into a new physical appearance with a slightly different personality. At the end of the last season, the Doctor regenerated into a woman for the very first time.

Doctor Who Series 11 will be shown on BBC America in the fall of 2018.

First Trailer for Pride and Prejudice and Zombies

Let’s be honest: We’re all a little tired of zombies right now. Even I am pretty close to being “all zombied out.” But just when you think there is nothing left to say in the world of the recently dead, a project like Pride and Prejudice and Zombies comes along.

A delightful blend of Jane Austen prose and George Romero blood and gore, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies was a literary sensation when the book was released in 2009, and the movie version seems like it has managed to capture both the period romance aesthetic and some great butt-kicking zombie annihilation.

The movie stars Lily James, Lena Headey and my personal favorite Doctor, Matt Smith, and is set to open on February 5, 2016.
