Leaked ‘Star Wars VII’ Concept Art Will Stun — If You Peek

If, however, you are spoiler-phobic, then get thee to a galaxy far, far away from this post. Seriously, if you don’t want Episode VII ruined — even potentially a little tiny bit, look away!

What’s Going on With ‘Mummy on the Orient Express’?

mummyThis weekend’s new episode of DOCTOR WHO, “Mummy on the Orient Express,” is supposed to be very scary — but it’s also something of a mystery: Is the Doctor (Peter Capaldi) traveling without Clara (Jenna Coleman)? The promotional images for the story notably include no shots of Clara on the train. And we all know she sent him packing at the end of last week’s “Kill the Moon,” so is he off sulking?

Hit the jump for a collection of photos from “Mummy on the Orient Express,” featuring guest turns by comedian Frank Skinner (as the engineer chap) and singer Foxes (as the… er, singer) — and some intriguing descriptions  of the storyline.
