“It means no” – Eccleston won’t return for Doctor Who 50th

by on May.03, 2011, under Television

Now, we don’t know if there is a special 50th anniversary episode/special planned for Doctor Who – it isn’t due for two years – but if you ask current show runner Steven Moffat his reactions do seem to indicate he is thinking about it at least. The hope is something akin to a “The Five Doctors” special, with all the available Doctors appearing.

Christopher Eccleston, who helped revitalize the franchise with his broody portrayal of the Doctor’s ninth incarnation, has definitely been thinking about it – and the answer is a pretty definite “no”. In an interview with Graham Norton on Radio 2, he said specifically, “No, never bathe in the same river twice.”

Now, of course, things could change – but Eccleston has seemed pretty adamant that he has done what he wanted, he’s proud of it, but it’s done and he’s moving on.

Sanctuary preview: “Wingman”

by on May.03, 2011, under Television

In the next sneak peek clip of an all-new episode of Sanctuary, Will and Henry are taking their ladies to a romantic dinner. They’re fantasizing about how delicious their meal will be once they drop off a package and get to the restaurant. During the ride the package starts to emit a gas that causes Abby to pass out. They realize she simply needs some fresh air because she’s allergic to the gas. A far greater scare comes over Henry and Will when they realize the gas is changing from its original state, as a winged creature flies from the box where it was held, into the sky and into the sewage system. Will stays calm but realizes they now have a lot of trouble on their hands. Watch the clip and tune in on Monday at 10/9c on Syfy to find out exactly how the team plans to tame the creature.
