A Stellar Cast: David Tennant Leads Doctor Who 50th Anniversary Cast

David Tennant Doctor Who Joanna Page Matt Smith John Hurt Jenna-louise Coleman

David Tennant will lead a stellar cast for the forthcoming Doctor Who 50th Anniversary special. The former Gavin & Stacey star Joanna Page will also join the cast, as will Billie Piper, who was once a Doctor Who star herself. Current stars Matt Smith, John Hurt and Jenna-Louise Colman will all appear in the special episode which is due to start filming this week, according to The Daily Mail.

Joanna Page recently gave birth to her first child and it’s not clear which role she will take, though she attended a recent read-through for the forthcoming special. Back in 2010 when it was rumoured that she may appear in Doctor Who, Joanna commented “I think I’ve got to be the only Welsh actress who has never been in Doctor Who so if someone would like me to be in Doctor Who I would love the part.”

Both the 10th (David Tennant) and 11th (Matt Smith) Time Lords will appear in the show, which will be screened in cinemas in November, according to the report. The show’s producer Steven Moffat is working hard to ensure that the content of the anniversary programme stays under wraps. “One length I've gone to which is a really good security measure - I make sure I don't get a script, because I will lose it. I forbid people to hand me one. It's on my computer under lock and key.” Matt Smith explained “It's about looking back and forward at the same time, a bit like the Doctor does. It's about celebrating everyone that's been involved with it, all the wonderful actors that have taken part before me, and it's also about looking forward.”

British MP Donates “Pretty Big Chunk” of Her Savings After Re-Tweet dependent Pledge Goes Wild

Joanna Page

When Slough MP Fiona MacTaggart sent out the tweet: "I will give £1.00 to Comic relief for every retweet of this message before 9pm" she probably didn’t expect to get 14,268 retweets, especially considering she posted it at 8.25pm.

35 minutes later and, as eagle-eyed readers will have inferred, she will now donate £14,268 to Comic Relief. “I knew it would be a lot but it was more than I expected," Ms MacTaggart said, "I had expected to give around £10,000 but there you go, it was a risk I took". The politician said she wanted to come up with an interesting way to encourage others on Twitter to donate to Comic Relief. "Someone from Australia retweeted it and said she gave 30 Australian dollars so that's rather wonderful". She added: "The thing about Comic Relief is about being quirky about giving. The first time I did any support for Comic Relief I was a teacher and I taught for a day dressed up as a chicken." Of her donation she said: "It is a pretty big chunk from my savings but I can afford it."

Nativity 2: Danger in the Manger! Review


After 2009's inane comedy Nativity, no one was clamouring for a sequel, but at least this one tips the scales into sublime silliness. If you can suspend your disbelief, this might even be a guilty pleasure, complete with stars behaving stupidly, adorable children and a series of hilariously corny pastiche Christmas songs.

Things continue to be rather chaotic at St Bernadette's Primary School in Coventry, mainly because the headmistress (Ferris) is still employing her idiotic nephew Mr Poppy (Wootton) as a classroom assistant. He's just scared off another applicant for the teaching job when the tenacious Mr Peterson (Tennant) arrives with his pregnant wife (Page), determined to stick it out. Somehow Poppy convinces Peterson to take the kids on an illicit cross-country journey to a Song for Christmas competition in Wales, at which the kids will face competition from school rival Mr Shakespeare (Watkins) as well as Peterson's estranged twin brother Roderick (also Tennant), a snooty composer with a professional choir.

The plot is utterly preposterous, and as the wacky events progress, writer-director Isitt never even tries to ground the movie in realism. In fact, there's a point about halfway through where it becomes pure fantasy, so complaints about believability don't really apply. The only way to survive watching it is to sit back and enjoy the inane plot and goofy slapstick. And by doing so, we're surprised that the film is actually rather enjoyably ridiculous.

Nativity 2: Danger In The Manger Trailer

Mr. Poppy, an immature classroom assistant at a St. Bernadette's Primary School, returns with ideas for a new Christmas performance with his class following the success of their Nativity play in 2009's 'Nativity!' He wishes to organise the pupils for the National 'Song for Christmas' Competition where the prize is a massive o10,000. However, being only an assistant, he cannot enter the class until their new teacher arrives. Donald Peterson is that teacher; a restless and stressed out man who struggles to deal with the pregnancy of his wife, the pressure on him to become like his talented composer twin brother and, of course, the unruly Class 7. Mr. Poppy wastes no time in getting Donald to agree to get the competition performance underway but the new teacher soon finds himself out of his depth and struggling to control the behaviour of his teaching assistant who insists on using a real baby and a donkey in the show. However, when Donald discovers that his perfect, daddy's boy brother is also competing alongside the upperclass choir of St Cuthbert's College, he finds himself determined to put on a world-class performance.

'Nativity 2: Danger in the Manger' is the most perfect sequel to its 2009 predecessor. It sees the return of Debbie Isitt as writer and director and most of your favourite characters and is set to be released well in time for the festive season on November 23rd 2012. 

Director: Debbie Isitt

Love Actually Review

I can only presume that the British calendar is so uniquely screwy that it allows for a Christmas movie to open a week after Halloween. Or maybe Love Actually is just in a universe of its own... one in which the prime minister is inaugurated in November and where an adverb can be used to modify a noun.

But a little oddness is forgivable: Directing a movie is a strange place for Richard Curtis, who's written umpteen Brit-friendly movies and TV shows over the years but hasn't directed one, until now.

Love Actually Review


"Love Actually" is terminally precious. Chirpy "classic" pop songs populate every third scene. It has no structure, just a jumble of interconnected stories -- some little dramas, some little comedies -- about love, flirtation, courtship and heartbreak, all of which will pay off just in time for a lovely London Christmas.

It's the kind of pandering, populist movie in which Hugh Grant, playing the prime minister of England, joyously shakes his booty to The Pointer Sisters' "Jump (For My Love)" until he suddenly, to his great embarrassment, realizes he's being watched. It offers no real surprises except in how and when it reveals the inevitable six degrees of separation between each anecdotal yarn -- none of which has enough substance to ever stand on its own (nor would you want them to!).

And yet, you'd have to be a terrible grump to not like "Love Actually" at least a little.

From Hell Review


A vivid yet distinctly fictitious recreation of the crime-plagued gutters of 19th Century London, the Jack the Ripper thriller "From Hell" is quite a homage to the dense graphic novel from which it was spawned.

It's nothing if not atmospheric, what with its opulently dingy, blood-red set dressings, its pinched-cheek and cheap-corset prostitutes, and its opium- and absinthe-addicted hero -- an unorthodox Scotland Yard Inspector named Abberline (Johnny Depp in lambchop sideburns) who discovers dangerous secrets in the Ripper's ritualized killings.

The film's talented directors -- brothers Allen and Albert Hughes ("Menace II Society," "Dead Presidents"), definitively demonstrating there's more to them than ghetto fare -- blend quite a transporting concoction with their viscous visuals, menacing moodiness, puzzling plot and heady performances.
