Star Wars: The Fork Awakens

Art Trap Productions - Tue, 12/09/2014 - 4:53am

It’s no secret that I have been a huge fan of Star Wars since it was released in 1977. It could even be argued that I was fan before it was even released (Sorry, Stephen Colbert, you’re not alone or the first), as I was following the production and its impending release in science fiction genre media. It’s without exaggeration that it had a tremendous impact on this then eleven year-old when it was released and it continued on. This post isn’t focusing on that so I won’t go into all the details only to say even though I was deeply into the mythology and themes of the films, it didn’t prevent me from having a life outside of it.

35 Years Ago, The Human Adventure Continued on the Big Screen with Star Trek: The Motion Picture

Art Trap Productions - Sun, 12/07/2014 - 10:34pm

It was 35 years ago today on a chilly night not unlike tonight (well, perhaps not as cold) when Star Trek: The Motion Picture opened in the theaters in the U.S. I remember vividly going to see it for the first time. After watching Star Trek all my life on television, we were finally seeing it on the big screen. Big it was, as it captured the scale and majesty of the refitted Enterprise and more like television never could at that time.

The Doctor and Clara face their Last Christmas

BBC - Doctor Who - Tue, 11/25/2014 - 7:38am

The BBC Media Centre has released details of the BBC’s Christmas Schedule. And there’s some intriguing news in there for Doctor Who fans!

According to the Press Release:

‘In Doctor Who, the Doctor and Clara face their Last Christmas. Trapped on an Arctic base, under attack from terrifying creatures, who are you going to call? Santa Claus!’

Will this really be the Last Christmas for the Doctor and Clara? And what exactly are these terrifying creatures? It’s not the first time the Doctor has visited the Arctic of course. It’s previously been home to an Ice Warrior in Cold War - and the Cybermen! Perhaps there are clues to be found if you watch the teaser for the Christmas episode. You can also catch this exclusive clip for Children in Need.

As Danny Cohen, Director of Television, says: “This year's Christmas line-up on BBC Television is one of our best ever. There's world-class talent, edge of your seat drama, outstanding comedy and fantastic storytelling. Across our channels we will bring families together and provide something for everyone.”

The episode will star Peter Capaldi, Jenna Coleman, Nick Frost, Michael Troughton and Nathan McMullen – along with a host of guest stars. You can read more about the BBC’s Christmas Schedule on the Media Centre website.

A host of familiar Doctor Who names to appear in Atlantis

BBC - Doctor Who - Tue, 11/11/2014 - 5:01am

Sarah Parish as the Empress in The Runaway Bride.

Doctor Who may have finished for a few weeks but don’t despair, a host of familiar faces from Doctor Who will be appearing in the new series of Atlantis which starts this Saturday…. A year has passed and much has changed. With Minos dead, Ariadne is Queen and finds herself at war with her old adversary: Pasiphae.

Expect high-octane action adventure as Jason, Hercules and Pythagoras are thrust into the heart of politics and power in the city. With richly serialized storylines and complex character arcs, this is a darker, more dangerous time for our heroes: A New Dawn.

Sarah Parish (The Runaway Bride) returns as Pasiphae and Ken Bones (The Time of the Doctor and The Day of the Doctor) reappears later in the series as Melas.

You may also recognise newcomer to Atlantis, Amy Mason, from Torchwood. She plays Medea, Pasiphae’s niece.

Look out for other Doctor Who names including Robert Pugh who played Tony Mack in Cold Blood and The Hungry Earth, Peter De Jersey (The Day of the Doctor) and Ronald Pickup who starred in the 1964 episode, The Tyrant of France.

Atlantis returns 20:30 this Saturday, 15 November on BBC One.
