The Doctor Who Team

It’s been officially confirmed that Jenna Coleman, who plays Clara Oswald, will leave Doctor Who during the new series which starts tomorrow, Saturday 19 September.

However, it’s not been revealed exactly when Clara leaves and the question many are already asking is how will she part company with the Doctor?

Jenna Coleman made her Doctor Who debut on 1 September, 2012 as Oswin Oswald in Asylum of the Daleks. She returned on Christmas Day of that year, playing Clara and remained with the Eleventh Doctor from the following episode, The Bells of Saint John, onwards. She stayed on board the TARDIS for all of Peter Capaldi’s episodes to date and after filming for the last series finished, Peter commented, ‘Jenna has been absolutely brilliant. I think she’s wonderful in the show, and she’s my favourite companion.’

Watch: James Cooper’s ‘Interview With a Time Traveler’ Sci-Fi Short | FirstShowing.net


Interview With a Time TravelerWatch: James Cooper’s ‘Interview With a Time Traveler’ Sci-Fi Short by Alex Billington September 4, 2014 Source: Vimeo “Why must everything that is broken be fixed?” This might just be a must watch, but I don’t want to get too excited.

While we often feature sci-fi short films that have extravagant CG visuals, this one is all about the dialogue. Titled simply Interview With a Time Traveler, from director James Cooper, it is exactly that — an interview with a time traveler, and it’s very mysterious and compelling.

Finally! #Stargate coming back to life with film trilogy reboot! | Blastr


Finally! Stargate coming back to life with film trilogy reboot!

Trent Moore Thursday, September 5, 2013 – 4:14pm

A whole lot of sci-fi fans have been bummed ever since the most recent Stargate series, Universe, went off the air a few years ago. Well, we have some good news: The franchise is coming back to the big screen.

But it won’t be a continuation of Stargate SG-1, Atlantis or Universe. Heck, it won’t even be connected to the original 1994 film that started it all. Get ready for a reboot.

Director Roland Emmerich has revealed that he is prepping a trilogy of new Stargate films meant to reboot the franchise. Originally Emmerich had envisioned Stargate as the first part of a trilogy — but MGM opted to make Stargate SG-1 instead, which ran for a decade and led to the two additional TV spinoffs.

Now that the franchise has been dormant a few years, Emmerich decided it was time to come back and give it another shot. Though the rebooted trilogy could borrow from some of his original plans, Emmerich was quick to point out that the new films will not be connected to the original Stargate film, noting “the actors look totally different … it would not work.”

The films will almost certainly not connect to the SG-1 universe, either, since Emmerich has never really been a huge fan of the small-screen version of the franchise. To this day, he maintains it is not a “canon” continuation from his film.

Here’s what he told Digital Spy:

“We went to MGM, who has the rights, and proposed to them to do a sequel, but as a reboot… and reboot it as a movie and then do three parts. Pretty soon we’ll have to look for a writer and start.”

Micro Book Review: “No Pandas” by Stephen Dunkley


I found Stephen’s writing style refreshing and akin to one of my personal all time favorite authors. Reading very much like Douglas Adam’s work, No Panda’s has a style of it’s own, wrapped up in a truly unique story line.
Angels, Dragons, Manticore and Dryads… a world within a World. 

Below is an except from the book:

Dodos:

There was a problem with the dodos.

The coelacanth had been great. They were one of the major success stories of the Endangered Creatures Programme. The last school of them in the wild had been captured and shipped to the breeding tanks at the zoo, and after many years of intensive care they were able to be released back into the wild. One by one, very carefully, in areas near deep water so as not to raise any suspicions, so that when the local fishermen might happen to catch the odd one or two and the so-called experts on them were jetted out, then they would be able to take one look at the deep water and proclaim that the species was never really extinct, but merely hiding. Yes, that was it, they were hiding, deep down. Very deep water that, you know. Hiding. Yes. They’d swum down really deep under the sea and stayed there. Because that made far more sense than admitting that someone who claimed to be an expert in an extinct species, who had never seen a real one to study but had had to make educated guesses from fossilized corpses, was wrong.

Now the species, once thought to be extinct, was again making its mark on the planet. Once more, coelacanth were starting to become a regular sight, tangled up in fishermen’s nets, gasping for air and slowly suffocating for the cameras.

The dodos, however, were a problem.

It took much trial and error to breed coelacanth. They weren’t much for ‘getting it on’, as it were. They weren’t much for getting off the tank bed to do anything at all, in fact. All they seemed to want to do all day was lounge around watching the world go by. Not all that unlike some of the humans really. Wake up, slob around for a bit, have breakfast, a bit more slobbing, a spot of lunch, an afternoon nap, some more slobbing, and then supper and sleep. Yes, very much like the humans really.

But after intensive research and note-taking, the keepers were eventually able to get them to breed in captivity. The coelacanth that is, not the humans. That was still against the rules.

The dodos were, in fact, a major problem.

“We’ve had a new arrival for the manticore, bringing us back up to twenty-three in London now.”

Jerry hated these weekly reports, but what with one thing and another, the Programme was now too large for hands-on management by anything less than a dedicated team of thirty or so senior keepers. The section heads were arranged in his office, finishing off their by now lukewarm drinks and not wanting to be the one to take the last biscuit. The meetings were one of those necessities that had to be dealt with. The Programme now had over two hundred staff from more than ten different species, caring for a further forty species. Then there were the outreach projects, the veterinary projects, and the whole area of marketing and publicity to deal with. Not to promote the Programme; quite the opposite in fact. It all added up to too much to do on the old ad-hoc basis of mentioning things in passing. The meetings had to be formal, but surely they didn’t have to be such a chore?

“Which brings us once more to the dodos,” the head of avians continued.

“Christ, how many are there now?”

“Nineteen thousand, four hundred and eighty-six.”

The problem was, the dodos wouldn’t stop breeding.

Assault or Attrition | By Blake Northcott


Follow-Up to Kickstarter’s Most-Funded Fiction Book of 2013 Bolstered by Marvel, DC and Image Artists

TORONTO / October 18, 2013 / Canadian author Blake Northcott launched her second Kickstarter campaign for the novel Assault or Attrition – a sci-fi superhero tale set in a dystopian future, featuring art and character designs by Marvel, DC and Image artists.

Northcott’s previous novel Arena Mode – which followed the same novel/art book format – is the most-funded project in Kickstarter’s ‘Publishing: Fiction’ category this year (as of October, 2013).

“I wanted to blur the line a little between novels and graphic novels,” says Northcott. “The concept of flipping to the back and seeing character illustrations is something that really excited me. I’d seen similar concepts in children’s and young adult books, but never anything targeting a more mature audience.”

Assault or Attrition contributors to date include:

Steve McNiven (Guardians of the Galaxy, Civil War, Uncanny Avengers – Nov. 2013)
Dave Johnson (Superman: Red Son, Deadpool, Punisher, 100 Bullets)
Dan Panosian (Spawn, X-Men, John Tiffany)
Mark McKenna (Star Wars: Old Republic, Justice League, Combat Jacks)
John ‘Roc’ Upchurch (Rat Queens, Vescell)
Derek Laufman (World of Warcraft: Pearl of Pandaria, Marvel vs. Capcom)

As well as special guest artists Comic Book Girl 19 (YouTube’s Comic Book Girl 19 Show), Natasha Allergi (Adventure Time) and John Broglia (Denali, Unmasked, Atomic Robo Real Science Adventures).

“Arena Mode” currently tops Kickstarter’s Publishing: Fiction category in 2013, with $35,353 in pledges, and 948 backers.

The Toronto-based writer has been self-publishing since 2011, and has received personal endorsements from Mark Millar (Kick-Ass, Wanted) as well as Stan Lee Comikaze CEO and Founder, Regina Carpinelli. Blake is also a regular contributor to CBS Man Cave Daily, writing about comic books and pop culture.

Blake’s debut novel – Vs. Reality – was originally written in 2009 as a script for a four-issue comic book series. After a year-long delay the funding fell through, so she converted her script into a full-length book, publishing it herself for the Amazon Kindle and other digital readers in July of 2011.

By October of 2011 Vs. Reality had reached #1 on Amazon U.K. in two different categories (‘Graphic Novels/Science Fiction’, and ‘Graphic Novels/Superheroes’), and she had amassed a fan following of more than 20,000 Twitter followers in less than a year.

In June of 2012 she released the sequel to Vs. Reality – Relapse – which appeared at #1 in the US, the UK and France in several Amazon Kindle categories. It was also the #1 Amazon Hot New Release in the same month.

Marvel’s ‘Agents of SHIELD’

1. Let’s get this out of the way – Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD is fantastic. Like The Avengers, it’s a near-perfect blend of Marvel action and Whedon wit.

2. The SHIELD pilot wraps up some loose ends from one of Marvel’s big-screen blockbusters.

3. Coulson (Clark Gregg) loves dark corners…

4. One veteran from the Whedonverse – Firefly‘s Ron Glass – pops up in a guest role.

5. Coulson lives – but how? Maria Hill (Cobie Smulders) might be holding all the cards.

6. That mysterious character played by J August Richards? Not Luke Cage!

7. Shannon Lucio – recently cast on Supernatural – plays a young woman who has a big impact on the life of Richards’s character.
