What was David Tennant wearing?

Tennant beardSome gossip for you. David Tennant has been forced to defend himself against charges of wearing women’s underwear.

Older news: He was also spotted hanging out with Billie Piper at the Leeds festival.

Gosh. I feel like I’m working for Heat all of a sudden.


More spies? No

British Spies season

As suspected, the British Spies season seems to end on Tuesday 5th with the final episode of Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy. Either that or the very BBC4-sounding Meetings with Remarkable Trees has a very deceptive title.

‘Clive’ from the Beeb’s press office still hasn’t got back to me to confirm this though. This isn’t wholly surprising. If you’ve never dealt with PR people, you probably won’t be aware of this, but “I’ll get back to you with that information” or “I’ll email it through to you” is pretty much code for “You will never see or hear from me again. You will not will be able to find me. I do not exist. I am Jason Bourne. I am a ghost.” Clive probably isn’t even his real name.

Which is ironic for a spies season, isn’t it?

SG-1 will go on, vows producer

Stargate SG-1 may have been cancelled, but producer Robert C Cooper has vowed that it will continue in some form or another. “What we want to emphasize is that the franchise is not dying. SG-1 will go on in some way. We’re just not ready to announce how.”

Possible options include a TV movie, mini-series, direct-to-video movie or an actual movie, since Richard Dean Anderson said he’d return to the Jack O’Neill role if that happened. However, that might conflict with Dean Devlin’s plans for a sequel to the original Stargate movie with the original cast.

Any bets on how it will return?

ITV1 slot possible for new US dramas

Broadcast is reporting that ITV is mulling over ITV1 slots for Raines, The Black Donnellys and Smith, should they become hits. At the moment, they’re scheduled for ITV3 and ITV2 slots, will possible repeats on ITV1.

Raines and The Black Donnellys are both mid-season shows, so we won’t know for a while if they’re a success, but Raines and The Black Donnellys are both pretty good shows, so this has got to be good news, both for ITV as a whole and UK viewers.
