Doctor Who – Cast list for David Tennant’s last two episodes

Posted by LiveFor on December 3, 2009

The Doctor as David Tennant is coming to the end of his journey. The End of Time is showing in the UK on Christmas day.

Now the cast list for the two parter is out on imdb (so it may not be totally correct) and it makes for some interesting reading. Spoilers ahoy!

John Barrowman (Captain Jack)
Brian Cox (The Elder of the Ood)
Timothy Dalton (The Narrator)
Lachele Carl (Trinity Wells)
Jessica Hynes (Verity Newman)
David Harewood (Joshua Naismith)
Jacqueline King (Sylvia Noble)
Alexandra Moen (Lucy Saxon)
Sylvia Seymour (Miss Trefusis)
Catherine Tate (Donna Noble)
Russell Tovey (Midshipman Frame)
John Simm (The Master)
Jimmy Vee (Monster)
June Whitfield (Minnie Hopper)
Paul Kasey (Ood Sigma)
Silas Carson (Ood voice)

Part Two also has:

Roger Bailey (Time Lord)
Teresa Banham (Governor)
Brid Brennan (Visionary)
Camille Caduri (Jackie Tyler)
Tommy Knight (Luke Smith)
Billie Piper (Rose Tyler)
Elisabeth Sladen (Sarah Jane Smith)
Matt Smith (The Doctor)
Penelope Wilton (Harriet Jones)

What have we learnt from this then? Well lots of familiar faces – Captain Jack, Harriet Jones, Rose & Jackie Tyler, The Master, Donna Noble.

Of particular interest are characters such as Verity Newman (Jessica Hynes). She also played Joan Redfer the character who was engaged to the Doctor when he went human and saw his book The Journal of Impossible Things. Apparantly Verity is a modern day author who has written the very same book – reincarnation maybe?

Now I’m not sure whether the Doctor will be revisiting all these people to right wrongs when he last met them or if it will be flashbacks – as it is Doctor Who it will probably be the former.

We’ll also get out first glimpse of Matt Smith as the new Doctor and a Time Lord!

Any thoughts or ideas as to what we may see in the final moments of Tennant’s Doctor? I for one am going to miss him.

Christopher Eccleston to play John Lennon in Beatles break-up film

Posted by LiveFor on November 30, 2009

We’ve had Beatles Rock Band, the original albums reissued and a film about John Lennon’s early years (Nowhere Boy).

Now Variety report that the turbulent and often tragic life of John Lennon is to be the subject of another British film.

In the latest biopic, commissioned by BBC Four, Christopher Eccleston (Doctor Who, Heroes, Our Friends in the North, G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra) plays the rock star in Naked Lennon.

The film highlights the years from 1967 to 1971 when the Beatle was ending his first marriage to Cynthia as Yoko Ono entered his life, coping with the death of manager Brian Epstein and the group’s own messy and acrimonious disintegration.

Also featured are Naoko Mori, whose credits include “Torchwood” and “Absolutely Fabulous,” who plays Ono, and seasoned British thesp Rory Kinnear as Epstein.

Other cast members include Claudie Blakley, who featured in the BBC period drama “Cranford,” as Cynthia Lennon, and Irish actor Andrew Scott as Paul McCartney.

Could be interesting, but not sure on Eccleston as Lennon? Do you think he will be able to be the Working Class Hero?

Burke and Hare – Promo poster for John Landis’ new film

Posted by LiveFor on November 23, 2009

Simon Pegg (Shaun of the Dead, Star Trek) and David Tennant (Doctor Who) play the titular characters. Now we have the bare bones promo poster and synopsis.

WILLIAM BURKE and WILLIAM HARE are scratching out a living in 1830s Edinburgh. After yet another failed business venture, they return to Hare’s lodging house to find that their tenant has suddenly died on rent day. As the boys decide how to dispose of the body over a drink, they discover that a corpse can fetch a hefty price. Edinburgh is the centre of the medical universe and the city’s doctors are crying out for more cadavers for their educational lectures. First they try the infamous DR. MONRO, but he’s not interested, so they sell the corpse to DR. KNOX, his vain and ambitious rival who urges them to bring any more ‘unfortunates’ they may stumble upon.

Entrepreneurial Hare is quick to realize they’ve hit on a great money making venture and despite the more sensitive Burke’s misgivings, they embark on a series of plans to secure more bodies. They arrange a series of deadly ‘accidents’ for the local unfortunates and to celebrate their success, they go out on the town to celebrate. There, Burke meets GINNY, a beautiful and spirited aspiring actress.

Drive on by the promise of romance, Burke agrees to step up their operation; branching out into “ethical” murder. The professional rivalry between Knox and Munro is creating a very lucrative trade for the boys as Knox needs extra bodies for his groundbreaking photographic map of the human body. In a series of hilarious comic misadventures Burke and Hare begin to secure a steady stream of bodies and the cash starts rolling in.

With the authorities closing in, Hare promises Burke he’s got a new plan; they just need a bit more money and then they can go legit and open a funeral parlour.

The pressure builds when Knox is arrested after dissecting some well known locals and he immediately implicates Burke and Hare as his supplier of fresh corpses.

Burke and Hare sweat it out in the cells as a crowd gathers baying for bloody. In a wild, but romantic gesture, Burke volunteers to take the rap to save his friend and the love of his life, Ginny. As the hangman’s noose goes around his neck, our hero is smiling bravely and when asked for his final words, he pronounces “I did it for love.”
