David Tennant And Billie Piper To Reunite On 'Doctor Who' Audio Episodes


David Tennant Billie Piper Doctor Who

More than ten years after they played a crucial part in bringing ‘Doctor Who’ back to the small screen and mainstream popularity, David Tennant and Billie Piper are set to reunite in a series of audio episodes.

Tennant and Piper portrayed the Timelord and his companion Rose Tyler in ‘Doctor Who’ between 2005 and 2006, and were one of the most fondly remembered combinations as the sci-fi series made its comeback in the noughties. Now, they’ll be getting back together for three audio-only episodes of ‘Doctor Who: The Tenth Doctor Adventures – Volume 2’, which will be released in November this year.

City Of Tiny Lights Review

Good

After the latest incarnation of Dredd, director Pete Travis shifts gears drastically for this complex noir mystery set in multiracial London. It's a stylishly made film, anchored by another superbly involving performance by Riz Ahmed. But its low budget shows in the way it strains to obscure secrets in blurry flashbacks, using intriguing characters to create a lot of atmosphere while neglecting to properly tell the story.

It's set in London's northwest inner-suburbs, where Tommy (Ahmed) grew up. He lives with his feisty but ill father (Roshan Seth) and works as a private detective. His latest client is the high-class hooker Melody (Cush Jumbo), who is concerned because one of her colleagues has gone missing. As he looks for her, Tommy discovers the dead body of a prominent businessman who has a link to his childhood friend Haafiz (James Floyd), now a high-flying property developer. And things are getting increasingly messy, with American spies prowling around and a local Muslim brotherhood entangled in the case. Tommy hires a sparky neighbour (Damson Idris) to help him, and then he runs into his childhood sweetheart Shelley (Billie Piper), who brings up emotions he thought he'd left behind.

All of this is intercut with blurred flashbacks of Tommy, Haafiz and Shelley when they were 17 years old. This stirs in some intriguing emotions, even if the scenes feel like a distraction since they take so long to reveal their secrets and never quite connect with the central mystery. Travis keeps the tone warm and dense, with dark colours, emotive faces and Tommy's probing voiceover, all of which creates a vivid sense of atmosphere. On the other hand, the plot merely gets more knotted as it goes along, bringing in more people and themes. So even if the story never quite ties up all of its lose ends, at least it's a fascinating portrayal of the ethnic mix in most London neighbourhoods.

A City Of Tiny Lights Trailer


Tommy Akhtar (Riz Ahmed) is an experienced private detective living in London, whose past comes rushing back with the return of his long-lost girlfriend Shelley (Billie Piper). But that's the least of his troubles. He's called in by an escort named Melody (Cush Jumbo) following the disappearance of her Russian flatmate after the latter had left for an appointment with a client. She's willing to pay whatever cost Tommy has in mind to get her friend back, a friend who was last seen in CCTV footage arriving at a hotel in Paddington. So where better to start looking? He also enlists the help of an unlikely friend to go undercover. However, it soon becomes clear that this is a lot bigger than he first thought; he's being threatened by suits as he gets closer to uncovering the dark underworld of London's social politics. There's a disturbing religious undertone to this case, which leads Tommy unwittingly into a world of violence and terrorism.

Chris Evans Says Marriage "Doesn't Work", Finds It "Weird"


Chris Evans Billie Piper Carol McGiffin

British TV presenter Chris Evans has declared that the concept of marriage “doesn’t work” and is outdated.

The 49 year old star and future presenter of ‘Top Gear’ visited a marriage counsellor and a sex therapist for the purposes of researching his new book ‘Call the Midlife’, and confessed that after having done so, it caused him to look at his own life and predict any marital issues that might lie ahead.

Evans has been married three times, and is currently happily wed to 35 year old Natasha Shishmanian, but reckons that the institution itself doesn’t apply to the 21st century and is a betrayal of human instincts.

Showtime's "Penny Dreadful" Isn't That Dreadful At All


Eva Green Josh Hartnett Billie Piper Timothy Dalton

Whenever a show or movie tries to make a show out of a mix of gothic literary characters, it usually ends up, rather aptly, a Frankenstein monster of a story – hammy at best, clumsy and unwatchable at worst. But Showtime has been on the ball with it’s sex-and-violence dramas of late, and they’re setting up a pretty compelling story with their new show, Penny Dreadful.

Eva Green
Eva Green is creepily brilliant as a paranormal expert in the first episode.

So far several familiar faces have made direct or indirect appearances – Victor Frankenstein, Dorian Gray, Mina Harker (nee Murray, of Dracula fame), Jack the Ripper and so on. Then there are the new faces, like Eva Greene’s endlessly enjoyable (and possibly sociopathic) Vanessa Ives, who appears to be the partner of Timothy Dalton’s Sir Malcolm Murray. And she’s about as awesomely creepy as it gets.
