Panellin’ It Up at Gallifrey One

January 29, 2014 Ben Conventions & Appearances

Last year I was in a panel at Gallifey One, the largest Doctor Who convention in the US. This year, I’m participating in two panels. Given this rate of growth, within a decade I will be participating in five-hundred-and-twelve panels. Which seems reasonable. Gallifrey One runs from February 14th-16th this year at the LAX Marriott Hotel, and […]

Gallifrey One Panel – “The Next Doctor”

February 11, 2013 Ben Conventions & Appearances

If you’re in the LA area for the Doctor Who convention Gallifrey One, I’ll be there all weekend dressed (hopefully) as the Eleventh Doctor. Hooray! I’m also participating on a panel called “The Next Doctor”. From the Gallifrey One website: We all know it’s coming… some day, whether next year or a few down the road, […]

Doctor Who: Flixlash

September 29, 2012 Ben Film & Television

There’s no doubt about it – Doctor Who‘s popularity has soared since its move to BBC America in 2009. The network has been pushing and promoting the show with vigor, giving it the star treatment and prime-time advertising that SyFy never afforded it. They’ve been pushing the show on social networks – the official Doctor […]

Breaking Broadcast: How Social Networking is Killing the TV Viewing Experience

September 4, 2012 Ben Film & Television

BE ADVISED: While the post itself doesn’t contain any spoilers, there are two inline images that contain spoilers for for Game of Thrones season one, and Saturday’s Doctor Who series 7 premiere “Asylum of the Daleks”. You have been warned. It takes a lot, a lot, to get me watching a new TV show these days. It’s not because I’m […]

Comic-Con Round-Up Exclamation Mark

July 15, 2012 Ben Conventions & Appearances

I almost never take photos these days. I don’t photograph my friends, because, y’know, they’re my friends. If I find myself wondering what my friends look like I can pick up a phone and say, “Hey, are you busy today?” If the answer is no, it’s usually less than an hour before we’re in each […]

There has been a lot of talk over the last few years about a potential Doctor Who movie. Rather a lot of people seem to think this is an absolutely terrible idea, and given the track record I don’t particularly blame them. Perhaps even worse is that the potential for a Doctor Who movie to be an […]

Arrested Development, Arrested

June 28, 2012 Ben Film & Television

Next year, Arrested Development returns after having been mercilessly cancelled by Fox back in 2006. Ten brand spanking new episodes are being produced for distribution exclusively via Netflix, which is very exciting news for fans of great comedy. My worry, though, is that the new Arrested Development is going to make the same mistake that other similarly revived shows made […]

No More Two-Parters in Doctor Who? Why I Don’t Think We Can Take Moffat at His Word.

February 21, 2012 Ben Film & Television

WARNING: The following post contains spoilers for Doctor Who’s sixth series. You have been warned. I should also point out that, despite my employers’ connections with the BBC, I have zero foreknowledge of Series 7. Oh no! Doctor Who showrunner Steven Moffat rocked the very foundation of the show by announcing way back in December that there probably won’t […]

Doctor, Doctor, Can’t You See I’m Burnin’, Burnin’

March 31, 2011 Ben Film & Television

There’s a moment in “Rose”, the very first episode of the revived Doctor Who, where the Ninth Doctor briefly addresses his appearance, like so: Common fan theory is that the Doctor arrived in London, picked out his new clothes, realized the Nestine Consciousness was present and up to the business of conquest, and so set […]
