Ben Stephenson, the outgoing controller of drama commissioning at the BBC, has said the licence fee needs to be increased, or the broadcaster will be forced to slash its drama output. In his farewell interview with the Radio Times, Stephenson, who helped bring shows such as ‘Sherlock’ and ‘Doctor Who’ to British screens, described the BBC as being at a "tipping point” thanks to the licence fee cap.

Currently the licence fee paid by British television owners is capped at 2010's price of £145.50 until 31 March 2017, but thanks to inflation Stephenson says the cap is effectively a cut to the BBC's budget.

Doctor Who Peter Capaldi

'Doctor Who' fans everywhere can sleep easy in the knowledge that the sci-fi series could go on 'indefinitely', according to former star Peter Davison - and we have to say, we're rather inclined to agree, especially since it has seen a complete overhaul once already.

The show's producer Steven Moffat revealed earlier this year that the series would definitely continue for five more years, but it seems other people are much more confident than that. After BBC drama boss Ben Stephenson suggested it could go on another 50 years, former Doctor Peter Davison took it one step further insisting to BANG Showbiz that he thinks 'it will go on fairly indefinitely' as long as the fans stay devoted and the producers stay committed.

Kaye will play a character named Prentis and although plot details are being kept under wraps, the actor told Den of Geek: "As a kid of the 1970s, the two shows you always watched were Top of the Pops and Doctor Who, they were unmissable. I actually wrote a song called 'Looking for Davros' in my first punk band and I sang it like a demented Dalek.

Paddington Review


Excellent

It's difficult not to go into a movie like this with a sense of dread, as the beloved children's book becomes a live-action movie with a digitally animated, eerily realistic-looking bear. Thankfully, the task of filmmaking was given to the inventive Paul King (of Mighty Boosh fame), who made the charmingly surreal 2009 comedy Bunny and the Bull and brings a refreshingly unexpected comical sensibility to liven up this film's family-friendly formula.

It starts in darkest Peru, where a young bear (voiced by Ben Whishaw) has been raised by his aunt and uncle (Imelda Staunton and Michael Gambon), who learned about London from a British explorer. Now in need of a new home, the youngster heads across the sea and takes the name of Paddington Station when he meets the Brown family: over-cautious dad (Hugh Bonneville), over-curious mum (Sally Hawkins), sulking teen Judy (Madeleine Harris), inventive pre-teen Jonathan (Samuel Joslin) and feisty relative Mrs Bird (Julie Walters). As they help him find the explorer, he has a series of adventures, unaware that the taxidermist Millicent (Nicole Kidman) is on his trail, determined to add him to the species on exhibition at the Natural History Museum.

This Cruella De Vil-style subplot would be seriously annoying if King ever let it take over the movie, but it always remains secondary to Paddington's mayhem-causing behaviour and his bonding with the Browns. It also provides some genuine tension in a climactic action sequence in the museum. But most of the film is dedicated to Paddington's comically ridiculous antics, and Whishaw voices him with just the right mixture of curiosity and hapless mischief to make him irresistible.
