Richard Adams’ beloved novel—and the infamously traumatizing 1978 animated adaptation—about a group of rabbits in search of a new home is getting an all-star re-imagining from Netflix and the BBC. In? Better roles for female characters. Out? Apparently, some of the novel’s shocking moments of brutality.
We’ve known for a little while that The Doctor’s next companion has been cast. Now, the BBC has officially revealed who it is: Pearl Mackie.

Since Class was announced last year, we’ve heard barely anything about the young adult series set in the universe of Doctor Who; today, the BBC revealed the main cast of the school-based series, as well as a few hints that make it sound a bit weirder and Doctor Who-ish that previously thought.
Daleks. Giant killer wasps. Sentient fat babies. The Tenth Doctor and Donna Noble teamed up against some pretty awful bad guys during their time on Doctor Who, but a new novel will see them fight their most horrible foes yet: assholes on the internet.
Speaking to a Brazilian website, Doctor Who star Peter Capaldi noted that the BBC has cast a new companion for the Doctor, and we should know very soon who that is.

There’s a lot of “whoa, what?” moments in this fast-paced Orphan Black trailer, and honestly, it’s a little confusing at times. But I’ll be damned if it’s not trippy as hell.
Ever since it was announced that season 10 of Doctor Who will be showrunner Steven Moffat’s last, doubts have been cast over the longevity of Peter Capaldi’s tenure as the titular Time Lord. Hell, those rumors have actually been swirling around for even longer than that. But apparently the BBC wants Capaldi around for…
It’s probably not a huge shock, but Maisie Williams killed dead the rumors that she would not become the Doctor’s latest companion, meaning we’ve seen the last of her series 9 character Ashildr—at least for now.
Ten years ago, the success of Doctor Who gave birth to the spinoff series Torchwood.

Good news, US Doctor Who fans—Amazon has announced it will stream the first eight seasons of the show, following their pulling from Netflix and Hulu this month. In a year with very little new Doctor Who, losing streaming options was a blow to fans, but now the show will have a home on Prime Video from March.

Sure, BattleBots was cool, but let’s not forget the real father of Robot TV deathmatches broadcast for our pleasure: the classic BBC series Robot Wars. Fans of violent robotic combat rejoice then, because the BBC are bringing back the series with more robots, and some mandatory science bits to distract you from the…
We all love Tom Hiddleston, and this spring, you’ll get to see him on your TV once a week—as a spy no less. Some new details have been revealed about his new project The Night Manager, a six-part miniseries that will air in April on the BBC and AMC.
