Just a programming reminder: Being Human returns to Powerful Mondays on Syfy tonight with the second season premiere at 9/8c, followed by the U.S. premiere of Lost Girl at 10/9c. For more information about Lost Girl, see our preview article from October.

Over on Fox, the two-hour premiere of Alcatraz, from J.J. Abrams and about an investigator who finds evidence at a crime scene that leads to a suspect, who supposedly died in Alcatraz prison 30 years previously, and uncovers an even deeper mystery, airs at 8/7c. Alcatraz stars Sarah Jones (Sons of Anarchy), Sam Neill (Jurrasic Park) and Jorge Garcia (Lost).

Madame de Pompadour to return to Doctor Who – as a companion?

by on Jan.16, 2012, under Television

Steven Moffat LOVES to tease. Especially on Twitter. He recently tweeted:

Right EVERYBODY who follows me, go and follow @SophiaMyles – spin that fireplace. NOW. I’ll explain later. Or not.

Of course @SophiaMyles = Madame De Pompadour from Who, and IS Lady Penelope from Thunderbirds.

He didn’t elaborate. But this has led to wild speculation on the ‘net. And although I do believe we could be seeing Madame De Pompadour in the upcoming season, a lot of it is focusing on the possibility that Sophie Myles could be the next companion for Matt Smith. Myles played Madame de Pompadour in the second season episode “The Girl In The Fireplace”, which Moffat wrote, although it was during David Tennant’s tenure as the Doctor and Russell T. Davies was in charge. But We know he is going to need a new companion, and M. de Pompadour appears to have been a popular character.
