Peter Davison, Colin Baker and Sylvester McCoy — who played the Fifth, Sixth and Seventh Doctors on Doctor Who, of course — were spotted loitering in front of the BBC, protesting the fact that none of the Doctors prior to 2005 will be included in the 50th Anniversary special. ”No Classics? No 50th!” read one of their signs. ”Have a heart, Classic Doctors want a part!” read another. No word on whether this is for real, or just a stunt to build anticipation. (Photo: Twitter)

Well, this might be exciting: A thrilling 10-part, fresh and contemporary take on the classic characters from Alexander Dumas’ novel The Three Musketeers. Luke Pasqualiano (top, left) from Skins and The Borgias will play D’Artagnan and Santiago Cabrera (right) from Merlin and Heroes will play Aramis in the new series, which commenced shooting last month. From Deadline London: “The Musketeers is about a group of highly trained soldiers and bodyguards assigned to protect King and country. It’s set on the streets of 17th century Paris, where law and order is more an idea than reality, and will feature a fresh story each week, kicking off when skilled fighter D’Artagnan meets Musketeers Athos, Aramis and Porthos while on a mission to avenge his father’s death.” And even though none of them seem especially dreamy in the bottom picture, I’m sure I’ll find plenty of squeal-worthy looks to blog about, so count me in.
Your Matt Smith jones is almost over, Whovians! From the LA Times: “The Doctor and his recently recruited companion Clara Oswin Oswald will face off against some new nemeses and reconnect with familiar friends when Doctor Who returns March 30 after a three-month hiatus. BBC released details about the mid-season premiere episode ‘The Bells of St. John’ as well as a new poster for the second half of Season 7. The poster features the 11th Doctor (Matt Smith) clad in a purple smoking jacket and a gold bow tie, astride a motorcycle, with Clara (newcomer Jenna-Louise Coleman) hanging onto his waist. Surrounding images reveal glimpses of the season’s upcoming aliens, including Cybermen, Ice Warriors and a face that appears to be a Sycorax. The motorcycle appears to be racing down the side of the Shard, a 95-floor London skyscraper that was completed last year and opened to the public in February. ‘The Bells of St. John’ will be a modern, urban thriller about ‘something sinister lurking in the Wi-Fi,’ according to BBC. In the episode, penned by Doctor Who lead writer and executive producer Steven Moffat, the Doctor meets a new nemesis, the Spoonheads.”
Downton Abbey is on the hunt for a black actor to play musician Jack Ross for a storyline on race relations in the 1920s. The casting calls for an attractive real man (not a boy), who has a wow factor. If they are looking for a good-looking brotha, they must be up to some antics and I can’t wait to see who they pair him with. Lady Edith perhaps? (Photo: Pacific Coast News)
In memory of beloved British actor Richard Briers, who died yesterday at 89, Yoko Ono (who turned 80 yesterday) sings the theme song from his BBC sitcom The Good Life. And if anything can bring on a good cry, it’s Yoko at the mike.
