Tuesday’s news, you lucky people

State of Play

It’s all just so exciting. And Spartan.

Doctor Who

  • John Simm might be appearing as… Go, on, spoil yourself, remembering it’s The Sun. There’s also a potential spoiler about Derek Jacobi’s character, the Professor.
  • A brief, slightly spoilery interview with Freema Agyeman.


British TV

  • Miss the Celebrity Big Brother evictions? You can watch the final three at YouTube: Dirk, Jermaine and Shilpa. Isn’t it nice the final three were all non-Brits?
  • Channel 4 is to have a season/year of environmental programming.



  • Rob Buckley

    I’m Rob Buckley, a journalist who writes for UK media magazines that most people have never heard of although you might have heard me on the podcast Lockdown Land or Radio 5 Live’s Saturday Edition or Afternoon Edition. I’ve edited Dreamwatch, Sprocket and Cambridge Film Festival Daily; been technical editor for TV producers magazine Televisual; reviewed films for the short-lived newspaper Cambridge Insider; written features for the even shorter-lived newspaper Soho Independent; and was regularly sarcastic about television on the blink-and-you-missed-it “web site for urban hedonists” The Tribe. Since going freelance, I've contributed to the likes of Broadcast, Total Content + Media, Action TV, Off The Telly, Action Network, TV Scoop and The Custard TV.
