Star Wars: The Force Awakens

A recentā€”and hilariously over-pricedā€”Amazon marketplace listing for a puzzle featuring Finn has been driving speculation wild, as it describes the Puzzle as portraying... the son of Lando Calrissian. The assumption is that, as it is a product being sold directly by Amazon, the description was legitimate, accidentally revealing Finnā€™s lineage.

However, the product isnā€™t actually sold by Amazon, merely fulfilled by it: the description comes from a third party retailer, who likely added the description in an attempt to push the price up of the item (which usually retails for around $5-10) based on speculation thatā€™s all over the Internet.

Doctor Who

Following recent rumors that the show would not return for a full season next yearā€”most recently including claims that Peter Capaldi has requested the season be cut in half to allow him to work on other projectsā€”both Capaldi and Steven Moffat have vehemently denied this. Hereā€™s Moffat, speaking to the Radio Times:

Weā€™re making a full series. I can confirm that. Iā€™m making a full series of 12 episodes, plus a Christmas special. I donā€™t know when it goes out. Thatā€™s up to someone else. And even if I did know ā€“ which I genuinely donā€™t ā€“ I wouldnā€™t be allowed to say so as I have absolutely no say in it whatsoever. [But] itā€™s not being reduced in size. Weā€™re not making fewer episodes. Thatā€™s all complete bunk. I can confirm that absolutely.

And here is Capaldi refuting in a similar manner to BBC News.

Speaking at the Lucca Comics and Games Convention, Moffat also said that Claraā€™s exit will be a very final one:

Clara is gone and will never return. I will not reveal any forecast about her fate. I can only say that what will happen will shock, terrify and surprise. Strictly in that order.

However, speaking to the BBC, the showrunner did discuss a character he would like to see return to the show: Ingrid Oliverā€™s Osgood:

I love the character. Iā€™d be very surprised if we didnā€™t [get her back on the show], because I think she really works and I think Ingrid is great in the part(s).

Class

Patrick Ness discusses his upcoming Doctor Who spinoff:

The main character is someone brand-new. Thereā€™s lots and lots and lots of brand new. Because thatā€™s what I want to see. I want to see somebody come up with something new.

The way I write books, isā€¦ I know the last line of the book, and I already know the last line in the first season of Class. And I know there are things on the way that Iā€™ve already written, or I canā€™t wait to write. So Iā€™ve got all the episodes plotted out. Iā€™ve got many many things written ā€“ and itā€™s really exciting! I wish I could tell you details, but itā€™s too early for details.
