Tuesday’s post-Presidents Day news

Who knew it was so big? Apart from Americans, of course.

Doctor Who

  • Lots of spoilers from David Tennant, including confirmation of series four. He also talks about Recovery. Girls Aloud were going to be in Doctor Who? Hmm…


  • Seriously? We needed a Saw 4?
  • Maggie Grace joins Liam Neeson and Holly Valance for Taken.


  • The Jam to reform without Paul Weller? Sacrilege!

British TV

  • John Simm talks to The Times about Life on Mars. “That Doctor Who Rumour” is mentioned in passing, but nothing is added.
  • ITV has cancelled CD:UK‘s replacement because it couldn’t find a sponsor.


  • An interview with Joss Whedon about directing The Office.
  • Former Lostie Michelle Rodriguez gives her side of the DUI story, if you can decipher it.
  • A long interview with Henry Ian Cusick – Desmond from Lost. He wears high heels and puts on women’s clothing? He’ll be cutting down trees next.


  • 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.
