Farewell Amy Pond (Karen Gillan) and Rory (Arthur Darvill).
Later this year, Jenna-Louise Coleman will become The Doctor’s (Matt Smith) new sweater-wearing companion on Doctor Who. Coleman will replace Karen Gillan, who, in addition to Arthur Darvill, will make a “heartbreaking departure after one final series of roller-coaster voyages.”
Here, Karen and Matt give advice to the new girl.
“It’s not often The Doctor meets someone who can talk even faster than he does, but it’s about to happen Jenna is going to lead him on his merriest dance yet,” executive producer Steven Moffat said of the new character. “Who she’s playing, how The Doctor meets her, and even where he finds her, are all part of one of the biggest mysteries the Time Lord ever encounters. Even by The Doctor’s standards, this isn’t your usual boy meets girl.”
What do you think of the new companion?

Appearances can deceive as is depicted in Fringe’s latest episode, Johari Window. And, of course, it has something to do with past experiments the Dr. Bishop was involved in. The deformed people of a small town have found a way to mask their deformities from the rest of the world, which is quite alright, because it is experiments that were done on them long ago that caused the deformities to begin with. But the masking comes undone if the people leave the town. Will their secret remain safe? Find out HERE.

The previously unseen Fringe episode entitled “Unearthed” aired on Monday night, January 11, 2010. It turns out that the episode does not take place in a parallel universe as had been speculated by many. If you are not a loyal Fringe follower, and maybe even if you are, the episode could be confusing with the presence of now dead Agent Charlie Francis still alive and kicking in “Unearthed.” Read more on the recap of Fringe “Unearthed” HERE.

Lately there has been a buzz about Tim Burton’s re-interpreted fantasy classic of Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland set to hit theaters on March 5, 2010. But did you know that Syfy has a four-hour movie event simply named Alice set to air on Sunday, December 6 & 7, 2009 at 9:00 ET/PT?
Although the lineup for Alice looks great and there are many familiar faces, it is probably not fair to compare it to Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland. Whether Alice falls down a rabbit hole or into a looking-glass, the story is all too familiar to all of us. And while many of us have a very vivid imagination, none can compare to that of Tim Burton. Syfy’s Alice should be a good watch while we wait for the big-screen Alice to make her debut in the spring. Read more about Syfy’s Alice HERE.

It has been a busy week for cancellations – first “Eastwick”, now “Dollhouse.” “Dollhouse” got a lucky second chance by avoiding the ax at the end of their first season run, but just could not bring in the numbers after they were moved to the big-competition Friday night timeslot. At least viewers will get to see the remaining episodes of “Dollhouse”, as sporadic as they may be. Josh Whedon stated on Whedonesque.com, “I’m off to pursue Internet ventures/binge drinking. Possibly that relaxation thing I’ve read so much about. By the time the last episode airs, you’ll know what my next project is.”

It’s no secret that “Fringe” has been struggling since Fox decided to move them into a different timeslot. Tell me, can you name ONE show that has done good by being moved to a different day and time? The fact that the show was preempted by baseball for 2 weeks didn’t help matters either. Boss J.J. Abrams says that although ratings are low, Fox is still committed to the show. Plus, everyone is in agreement that “Fringe” is airing their most creative season yet.
“The mood on set and in the writer’s room is as good as the ratings are bad, which is to say, wonderful,” Abrams tells Ausiello. “Luckily, Fox has been insanely supportive, for which we are deeply grateful.” It looks like “Fringe” is in no immediate danger of getting axed to the TV graveyard.
