London’s ‘Faked Death Brooding Hero' building.
Unless you’ve been living with the Rock (who hates watching science fiction; ‘not in my name,’ he says), you’ll have seen the fiftieth anniversary special of Doctor Who last night.
Some people are angry that Moffat has ‘rewritten’ series 1-7. ‘He’s rewritten the canon!’ they cry. But I, brave heart Thomas, put forward that he hasn’t.
‘The Eiffel Tower was being dismantled for its yearly lamination. The tight plastic wrap is applied every September to prevent would-be climbers from getting a grip, and to facilitate the sliding-down of children from the play area at the top.’
Oh no it’s a white-skinned man. To hell with the BBC for casting a white-skinned actor.
How dare they
perhaps they auditioned hundreds of people and felt that Peter Capaldi was the right choice
but he’s white so DAMN IT

It has been announced that this year’s Alan Partridge film, Alan Partridge: Alpha Papa, will be Steve Coogan’s final appearance as the character.
When Partridge returns in Casino Royalan, a second film slated for release in 2015, he will be played by Daniel Craig.
The portrayal of Alan Partridge by the incumbent Steve Coogan began in 1991, appearing as a hapless sports reporter in radio comedy series On the Hour.
He continued in this vein onscreen with The Day Today in 1994, with Austalian actor George Lazenby taking over for a short-lived stint as the character in the penultimate episode.

The Daily Mail’s front page today criticizes Channel 4’s decision to broadcast a daily Muslim call to prayer throughout the Ramadan season.
Broadcast at 3am, the three minute chant will, they say, ‘interrupt shows’ and could be a ‘cynical’ move by the channel that might ‘inflame community tensions.’
I don’t know about you, but my neighbours and I love that 3am slot and we’re feeling pretty inflamed about all this.
The United Kingdom is adjusting to the news that Kate “Duchess” Middleton, Catherine of Cambridge, has given birth to bearded comedian and television presenter Justin Lee Collins.
The Channel 4 icon is reported to have emerged, fully grown, from the Duchess’ birth canal at approximately 20:34 last night, in one of Buckingham Palace’s many heir production chambers.
The newborn was, as according to royal protocol, carried out onto the Palace’s balcony and exhibited to the gathered crowds. Eyewitness reports suggest that a “warm tidal wave of curiosity, excitement, and fear” surged outwards from the Palace gates as talk of the birth spread. One baffled man is rumoured to have uttered a swear word upon hearing the news.
