The season 3 poster for Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has been revealed and it looks very different that the previous years. The cast has grown, Skye is now Daisy Johnson / Quake, Phil Coulson is out of his normal suit and going with the one-glove look since his hand got severed. Also Mac, Bobbi, Hunter and Luke make the poster this year. And we have the tag line: “Are you Inhuman?”
And Grant Ward is still in the poster… seems like a team divided.
Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD returns on September 29th to ABC.
After Doctor Who‘s return in 2005, it became tradition for at least one “Doctor Who actor quits series” rumor to circulate in the ramp-up to the premiere of the new season.
Which isn’t the craziest rumor to follow as constant cast turnaround is a featureof Doctor Who.
This year’s rumor concerns co-starJenna Coleman, again, and comes courtesy of The Daily Mirror, who reports the actress has landed a role as Queen Victoria in a new show on ITV and has, therefore, quit the series.
“She is thought to have already filmed her final scenes for the hit BBC1 show, and will bow out before the Christmas special,” they write.
I know more than a few fans, my Tread Who Perilously co-host Justin Robinson among them, who will be thrilled to be done with Coleman and her companion character, Clara Oswald. And, honestly, once the mystery of the impossible girl was solved, Clara did seem to be sort of aimless. Despite last year’s romance plot with Samuel Anderson‘s Danny Pink, her storyline lacked.
Of course, change is part of the series and companions usually last no more than two seasons on the revived program. Arriving in the second half of Matt Smith‘s final year, Clara will be longest running companion of the new series upon completion of the upcoming season, just edging out Amy Pond, played by Karen Gillan.
Whether or not she stays is something only time can tell, as it always does
It’s under 3 week until the return of the Flash… and the network wants you to know. In the trailer below we get to see a mix of behind-the-scenes and clips for the new season. We get an idea of just how they are filming the scenes with Atom Smasher (Adam Copeland). Plus we have some still shots the network released for the season premiere including a good look at Atom Smasher’s mask and Joe West (Jesse L. Martin) gets a big gun.
The Flash returns on October 6th to the CW.
When Doctor Who returns for its ninth series next week, it will see the return of two-part episodes; a format missing from the show between 2011 and last season’s finale. BBC America released this video of co-star Jenna Coleman and executive producer Steven Moffat discussing the format’s return:
Previously, perhaps in Doctor Who Magazine, Moffat suggested the two-part episodes would not be as connected as they had been in the past. Coleman’s comments make me wonder if, perhaps, he was being overly mysterious.
The cliffhanger is such an essential piece of Doctor Who storytelling that I find it strange one would act like it’s not a big part of the new year. Unless, maybe, they don’t do as well ratings-wise? In any event, we’ll see what form the two-parters will take when Doctor Whoreturns on Saturday, Sepetember 19th.
The BBC released a short prologue to next week’s Series 9 premiere of Doctor Who,The Magician’s Apprentice. In the clip, the Doctor, played by Peter Capaldi, returns once more to Karn with Clare Higgins reprising her role as Ohila, the High Priestess from Night of the Doctor.
Oooh, mysterious! Who is the “creature” requesting to meet with the Doctor? Why will meeting him destroy the Doctor? Why does the Doctor’s blue coat look better when he wears a hoodie?
These and other questions may be answered — you never know the Doctor Who — next Saturday when the program returns on September 19th.
he BBC have finally confirmed the time when the new series of Doctor Who will have its world premiere television broadcast, with The Magician’s Apprentice showing on BBC One on Saturday 19th September at 7:40pm. The episode has a scheduled length of 50 minutes. The evening lineup has yet to be finalised, but it is expected that the episode will be preceded by an edition of Pointless Celebrities and then followed by The National Lottery: In It To Win It. Details of whether Doctor Who will precede or follow BBC One’s annual Autumn dance extravaganza Strictly Come Dancing – which kicks off the following weekend – should be confirmed next week.
In New Zealand, PRIME have also confirmed the broadcast time for The Magician’s Apprentice, which will be shown prime-time Sunday evening at 7:30pm. This means that those in the islands will get to see the episode narrowly ahead of those in ‘nearby’ Australia, who see it around two hours later (though the latter’s broadcaster ABC will make it available online via their iView service earlier in the morning!). This is the first time since the series returned in 2005 that New Zealand viewers will be able to watch a regular series episode of Doctor Who within a day of its UK premiere.

The CW has released two new images of David Ramsey as John Diggle in his new uniform / suit. The character of Diggle has been the voice of reason since season one of Arrow when he was hired to be Oliver Queen’s bodyguard. His character has evolved to being a husband, father and hero but he never got the outfit like the rest of Team Arrow. With the new season that changes as you can see him below… so what will his codename be? That has yet to be revealed. If I were to venture a guess I’d say Guardian… but we will see.
Arrow returns October 7th to the CW.
