Thursday’s “never could get the hang of Thursdays” news


On this particular Thursday, something was moving quietly through the blogosphere…

Doctor Who

  • Michelle Collins has been cast in a/the Chris Chibnall episode. No doubt she’ll be with evil Ian Beale in his extinct undersea volcano base.



British TV


  • Heroes: This season will end on a cliffhanger of sorts.
  • Lost: spoilers aplenty on this weeks’s official vidcast. Make sure you get the one marked “LOST: Season 3, Video Podcast 7”
  • So much pilot casting: Jordana Brewster is to get the Angelina Jolie role in the Mr and Mrs Smith pilot; Jason O’Mara is probably going to play Philip Marlowe in another pilot, while Ted Danson and Glenn Clone are to appear in an FX legal thriller
  • Season three of Airwolf – that’s the sh*t one that’s not quite as sh*t as the one the Canadians made – is coming to DVD in May. Watch as the war helicopter helps disabled kids!

    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.
