Doctor Who fans have been waiting for today for quite some time! Yes the new season of Doctor Who will be simulcast around the world today. The new Doctor is Jodie Whittaker. She will officially step into the shoes of the famous Doctor from “Doctor Who,” the star of the 55-year-old British sci-fi series, on Sunday on BBC America . She’s also making history as the first woman ever to take on the iconic role. We’ve rounded up some episodes of “Who,” plus an entry on Whittaker’s resume that will help you get ready for her big debut.
Jodie and the cast were so happy at Comic Con in July and loved seeing all the amazing fans who were there to see them. I have been a fan of the show since I was young and will be tuning in today to see the new season!
Imagine my glee when I opened up the new TV Guide at the grocery store and it opened up to a full page scan of Alexander Skarsgard in his upcoming role in The Little Drummer Girl. The spy thriller is set to air on Monday November 19th on AMC. It is shown as an “Editor’s Pick” in the Fall Preview TV Guide. The scans on this post are from my copy. Enjoy!
AMC is going to own three nights in November with The Little Drummer Girl, its upcoming limited series based on the spy novel by John le Carré. The network announced Tuesday that the six-part series will air on consecutive nights from Nov. 19 to 21.
Based on a 1983 by acclaimed spy novelist John le Carré, The Little Drummer Girl — a co-production by AMC and the BBC — is helmed by Oldboy and Snowpiercer director Park Chan-wook and stars Big Little Lies and True Blood‘s Alexander Skarsgård, Boardwalk Empire madman Michael Shannon and Lady Macbeth’s Florence Pugh as Charlie, an actress who turns double agent spy when she gets involved with Skarsgård’s dashing mystery man Becker. Shannon plays spy mastermind Kurtz. It’s his second high-profile limited series of the year after the Paramount Network’s Waco. Please enjoy this amazing photo of him.
