Omg, is she tearing up at the end? That’s it, I’M DEAD. Hard enough getting through today without Jenna crying, too.
10 in a fez, you guys! It’s 10! In a FEZ! SO ADORABLE. And only eight days to go until we see the whole episode!
Chills. Chills, I tell you. Saturday the 23rd is, of course, the global simulcast of Doctor Who’s 50th Anniversary special, Doctor Who: The Day of the Doctor (2:50PM EST, USA), but there’s Doctor Who marathons and specials and tributes the entire week leading up to the big premiere, and interviews with the stars on various chat shows after that, so it’s just going to be exhausting. But fabulous. But exhausting. Check out the entire BBC America schedule here.
“I’ve been running all my lives, through time and space; every second of every minute of every day for over 900 years. I fought for peace in a universe at war. Now the time has come to face the choices I have made in the name of the Doctor. Our future depends on one single moment of one impossible day, the day I’ve been running from all my life. The day of the Doctor.” CHILLS!
Former Doctor Who hunk Matt Smith is replacing his sonic screwdriver with a butcher knife for the upcoming London stage musical American Psycho, according to the New York Times. “The musical, adapted from the controversial Bret Easton Ellis novel about a mentally unbalanced young professional, will be presented at Almeida Theater from Dec. 3 through Jan. 25. It features a score by Duncan Sheik, the Tony Award-winning composer of Spring Awakening, and a book by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, who has also written for Glee and contributed to the Broadway musical Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark.” DYING.
It’s the last hurrah for Matt Smith fans, and probably the last time I SWEAR TO GOD that I will ever watch the show. On November 23, the 11th Doctor goes out with a bang, with number 10 (David Tennant) inexplicably along for the ride. And look, there’s John Hurt lumbering in front of an exploding TARDIS. Hurt, you will recall, was introduced as the Doctor in May’s season finale. Fans are speculating whether Hurt’s character is a previous iteration, a future iteration, or an alternate-timeline version of the time traveler, or else another character altogether. Where’s the new guy, though? That old codger they got to replace my Matty? Ugh. I can’t even look at this without wanting to cry. (via thelatimes)
Let’s see, let’s see. Who was at the GQ Men of the Year Awards at the Royal Opera House in London? I spy with my brown eye Douglas Booth, who I’ve always praised to high heaven and yet… and yet… now when I look at him, well, he seems slightly brain damaged, doesn’t he? Like he’s NOT QUITE THERE. Are his eyes going in different directions? Is that drool in his beard? I don’t know, dude. Somethin’ ain’t right. Who else? Supermodel David Gandy, always the picture of elegance. So dapper. So chic. Then there’s humpy Eddie Redmayne wearing his summer tweeds? To a black tie event? FOR SHAME, YOUNG MASTER REDMAYNE! Have you gone soft in the head, too? You don’t wear casual daytime clothes to something like this, no matter how nicely the Prince of Wales check goes with your eyes. YOU… JUST… CAN’T… DO IT! Ten demerit points for you! Next up, boxer/sex god – MY GOD, HE’S A HOT SLAB OF BEEF – Amir Khan with gal pal Faryal Makhdoom. Sigh. What I wouldn’t do to him. Then there’s Matt Smith with some hoochie-mama, I can’t even. Frankly, I’ve already moved on from Matt. I don’t even know if I’ll watch his last season as the Doctor. I’ll CERTAINLY never watch the new Doctor, you can be DAMN SURE OF THAT. You’ve hurt me, Matt. There’s no coming back from it. And finally, there’s Pharrell. Hmmm. I’ve never noticed how tiny he is. Just a wee bit of a thing. Not quite sure how to process that. What do YOU think? Is tiny Pharrell not quite as hot as the hulking Pharrell of your dreams? Leave a comment. (Photos: Pacific Coast News)
What a day. What a day. I’m still reeling from last night’s GoT. Pia Zadora was arrested. Amanda Bynes has been evicted. And now THIS. Matt Smith, the 11th actor to play the titular Doctor on the long-running sci-fi series, has announced that he’s leaving the show after the 50th anniversery episode later this year. During the annual Christmas special, the doctor will regenerate yet again and a new actor, possibly John Hurt, will step into the role. “Doctor Who has been the most brilliant experience for me as an actor and a bloke,” Smith said in a news release. “It’s been an honor to play this part, to follow the legacy of brilliant actors, and helm the TARDIS for a spell with ‘the ginger, the nose, and the impossible one.’” And while, yeah, John Hurt is a fine actor I SUPPOSE, might I suggest the recently unemployed Richard Madden, or (as Tumblr is united in suggesting) Rupert Grint to bring in a whole new generation?
