Begin the countdown to Christmas week with some uplifting news:
- The Guardian interviews Billie Piper. Apparently, she calls David Tennant ‘David Ten-inch’. That’s presumably a reference to the size of his action figure.
- The Sun is sticking to its story about The Rani appearing next series, despite official BBC denials.
- There’s a blow by blow account of the series three trailer, complete with pictures, over at FreemaAgyeman.com.
- What does Russell T Davies… sorry Garth Marenghi have on his Amazon wish list?
- Mitchell and Webb discuss their future plans, including the next series of Peep Show
- The Times talks about spin-offs, including Torchwood, Rogue Spooks and Ashes to Ashes
- ABC is giving Big Day Help Me, Help You’s slot, now that it’s been cancelled. That’s two doses of not very exciting wedding per Tuesday evening now.
- Day Break’s been cancelled. Its final episodes will air on ABC.com.
- The mom from Happy Days will play Sally Fields’ mom in Brothers and Sisters
- Nathan Fillion from Firefly is to star in Tim Minear’s forthcoming show, Drive. He’ll play a ‘rogue landscaper’. Don’t ask what one of those is.
- A couple of Dexter interviews: David Zayas and Jennifer Carpenter.
