A prequel to Doctor Who return episode, “The Bells of Saint John”, plus a free video explaining Strax
Wow, lots of videos lately – but with just 5 days left to the return of Doctor Who with the episode “The Bells of Saint John”, Steven Moffat produced a prequel short for the episode where the Doctor has a talk with a little girl on a swingset, about how he’s lost a friend twice and doesn’t know how to find her again…you’ll never guess who the girl is…well, maybe you will…
In addition, today both on iTunes and [asin=B00C0YQTQI]Amazon[/asin] there is a free video short, which shows just what happened to the Sontaran Strax after the events that took place on Demons Run – where it appeared he had perished. Yet, in “The Snowmen”, he’s alive and well – except he is in Victorian London with Madame Vastra and Jenny…
A couple more cool videos for you from Defiance – first, meet the Romeo and Juliet of the town of Defiance, Alak and Christie – via the actors Jesse Rath and Nicole Muñoz. Then Julie Benz, who plays mayor Amanda Rosewater, gives her thoughts on Defiance:
Revolution returns to NBC tonight at 10/9c, but you can watch the first 8 minutes right here! Also check out the interviews with the stars!

Catch up on what’s happening in the galactic LEGO Empire with these tidbits about Lego Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Out with a fun catch-up on its predecessor, The Padawan Menace.
WHAT TO LOOK OUT FOR IN THE EMPIRE STRIKES OUT
On top of all the old Star Wars characters making their debuts as LEGO characters, you will also see more references to the franchise films than ever before, so keep your eyes peeled Star Wars fans.
Here is another video for the upcoming Defiance, this time about the sisters Amanda and Kenya – the former (played by Julie Benz), the new mayor of Defiance, and the latter (played by Mia Kirshner), the owner of the Need/Want, the town’s bar/brothel.
On Monday’s Lost Girl, the gang goes undercover to catch a killer Fae preying on at-risk youths. Tune in at 10/9c – and don’t forget to catch the special guest star, Linda Hamilton!
Oh my…Hulu has made available every episode of all the live-action Star Trek series for free! They are available for a “limited time”, which I’ve heard is the end of the month, so get watching!
And I checked – they appear to be the original uncut episodes of the original series, although with the remastered effects, at least with my spot-check of “The Trouble With Tribbles”, which has the vodka/scotch scene intact.
Our latest message from Aidan:
Looks like I have a lot for you today. First, check out the sneak peek into Monday evening. If you continue to tweet #BeingHumanSyfy, like or share posts on Facebook, maybe you can unlock the first four minutes of the episode before Monday.
I also have a bunch of interviews for you with folks who look a lot like Josh, Sally & me.
So check out the preview for “If I Only Had Raw Brain”, which airs Monday at 9/8c on Syfy, and those interviews, and don’t forget to get the word out! And a special bonus – BLOOPERS from Episode 10!
This UK trailer for Star Trek: Into Darkness is sure to generate some heat…interesting that Cumberbatch’s “I’m better…at everything” lines could apply to either Khan or Mitchell… 🙂
The new Entertainment Weekly features two different covers for Doctor Who (see them here, courtesy of Blogtor Who), but the more interesting bit came from the article inside, in which producer Steven Moffat was quoted as saying about the upcoming 50th Anniversary, “We can’t make this all about looking backwards. It’s actually got to be the start of a new story.”
This appears to be in relation to the desire among fans to have something like “The Eleven Doctors” special, featuring all living Doctors and somehow accommodating the deceased ones as well. But that’s a tall order to try and squeeze into an episode – even a super-sized one. But reading in to it more, I’m wondering about “…a new story.” Would a 50th Anniversary episode be used to kick off something new? Like, perhaps, a rumored new Doctor?!?
