Moffat Confirms He’s Making a Full, 12-Episode Series 10

docrockerExterminating nasty rumors that have been running rampant among the British tabloids, DOCTOR WHO executive producer and lead writer Steven Moffat confirmed today that the next season of DOCTOR WHO — the 10th since its revival — will consist of a full slate of 12 episodes plus a Christmas special.

And the whole season will star Peter Capaldi!

Moffat said:

“We’re making a full series. I can confirm that. I’m making a full series of 12 episodes, plus a Christmas special. I don’t know when it goes out. That’s up to someone else.

‘Star Wars’ International Trailer Features Lots of New Footage!

The brand-spanking-new international trailer for Star Wars: Episode VII — The Force Awakens has dropped, and it is packed with… many feet of epic new footage!

Does anyone else that “Jakku” is just a publicity codename to cover up the fact that Rey lives on Tatooine? Nobody onscreen has ever called it that, and I’m getting tired of seeing footage of the outer-rim desert world with the double suns and moisture farms and a Dune Sea and the Mos Eisley-looking town. Just admit it, Lucasfilm…

I think J.J. Abrams and pals wanted to avoid all the eye rolls that doubtless would have accompanied the announcement of another return to that dustball. Tatooine may be the place furthest from the bright spot of the galaxy, but it’s inextricably linked to the fate of said galaxy…

This newest trailer looks spectacular — so why not pair it with the full U.S. trailer for a mind-blowing experience…

Can’t wait for this to open on Dec. 18!!!
