When Tom Baker decided he was tired of wearing a long scarf and eating jelly babies, rumors spread that his replacement might be a woman. Baker fueled those speculations with the following comment:: “Well, you’re making an assumption that it’s going to be a man.” Years later, speculation was fueled when Helen Mirren, after shooting down rumors she would be piloting the Tardis, went on the record with that following bold statement: “I’m not going to be the first female Doctor Who – no, no, no,” she said. “I absolutely wouldn’t contemplate that.” “I do think it’s well over-time to have a female Doctor Who.

DIRK GENTLY’S DETECTIVE AGENCY: 2 trailers f...

With Elija Wood and Samuel Barnett starring, Robert Cooper (STARGATE SG-1 and other SG series) and Max Landis (MR RIGHT) bring Douglas Adams’ DIRK GENTLY’S DETECTIVE AGENCY to BBC America.

Dirk and Todd wend their way through one big, seemingly insane mystery, crossing unlikely paths with a bevy of wild and sometimes dangerous characters, each episode landing them a few random steps closer to uncovering the truth.

LUTHER: Trailer for upcoming special

For some time now, I have been waiting for news of the upcoming LUTHER special. We heard that Idris Elba was returning to the role of John Luther, a haunted London detective whose dark side rivals that of the people he pursues. But few details came. In September, the first still arrived with little news. Now comes the trailer and a premiere date of December 17th.
