In the new frontier, French and British forces battle for a stronghold in the Hudson Valley. Facing savage dangers and rugged terrain, Elizabeth Shields (Carter) and her husband William have come to Fort Bennington to open a trading post in support of the British force, leaving behind the comfort and security of the old world. When their journey crosses paths with the hostile Iroquois, Elizabeth and William are rescued by Natty “Hawkeye” Bumppo (Horsley), a nonconformist frontiersman and his native friend, Chingachgook (Rodney A. Gant). William is double-crossed by his greedy brother who orchestrates his capture by the French. Elizabeth turns to Hawkeye for assistance in rescuing her husband while learning to survive her new frontier life. As her feelings for Hawkeye develop into more than friendship, Elizabeth must pray for the well-being of her husband, while holding vigil for the man she secretly loves.

Currently captivating audiences with her performance as Elle Argent in Heartstopper, Yasmin is receiving rave reviews across the globe.

Speaking of joining Doctor Who Yasmin says: “If anyone would have told 8 year old Yasmin that one day she’d be part of this iconic show, I would have never in a million years believed them. This show has a place in so many people’s hearts, so to be seen as a trans actress by the legend himself Russell, has not only made my year, it’s made my life. I cannot wait to begin this journey and for you all to see how Rose blossoms. Get Ready.”

Russell T Davies, Showrunner adds: “Life on Doctor Who gets brighter and wilder, how can there be another Rose? You’ll find out in 2023, but it’s an absolute joy to welcome Yasmin to the Doctor Who set.

They’re back… David Tennant and Catherine Tate return to Doctor Who

The big question is, just what brings the Doctor and Donna back together?

One of the most loved pairings in Doctor Who’s history have reunited and are filming scenes that are due to air in 2023 to coincide with the show’s 60th anniversary celebrations.

The Doctor and Donna parted ways when the Doctor had to wipe Donna’s memory, making her forget him, in order to save her life. He left her family with a warning: if ever she remembers, she will die. But with the two coming face to face once more, the big question is, just what brings the Doctor and Donna back together?

Russell T Davies, Showrunner says: “They’re back! And it looks impossible – first, we announce a new Doctor, and then an old Doctor, along with the wonderful Donna, what on earth is happening? Maybe this is a missing story. Or a parallel world. Or a dream, or a trick, or a flashback. The only thing I can confirm is that it’s going to be spectacular, as two of our greatest stars reunite for the battle of a lifetime.”

In his last ever episode, David’s critically acclaimed portrayal of the Doctor famously said “I don’t want to go… ” Well it seems he – and fans across the globe – have got what they wanted as the iconic duo are on their way back…

[via press release from BBC]

The Future is Here – the new Doctor is revealed


The BBC has today announced Ncuti Gatwa is the new Doctor set to take charge of the TARDIS.

There aren’t quite the words to describe how I’m feeling. A mix of deeply honoured, beyond excited and of course a little bit scared. Unlike the Doctor, I may only have one heart, but I am giving it all to this show.” – Ncuti Gatwa

Star of stage and screen Ncuti is best known for his critically acclaimed performance in Sex Education as the iconic Eric Effiong, for which he was awarded Best Actor Award at the Scottish BAFTAs in 2020 as well as numerous nominations, including Best Male Performance in a comedy programme at this year’s BAFTAs.

Speaking of his new role, Ncuti says: “There aren’t quite the words to describe how I’m feeling. A mix of deeply honoured, beyond excited and of course a little bit scared. This role and show means so much to so many around the world, including myself, and each one of my incredibly talented predecessors has handled that unique responsibility and privilege with the utmost care. I will endeavour my utmost to do the same.

“Russell T Davies is almost as iconic as the Doctor himself and being able to work with him is a dream come true. His writing is dynamic, exciting, incredibly intelligent and fizzing with danger. An actor’s metaphorical playground. The entire team has been so welcoming and truly give their hearts to the show. And so as much as it’s daunting, I’m aware I’m joining a really supportive family. Unlike the Doctor, I may only have one heart but I am giving it all to this show.”

Russell T Davies, Showrunner, adds: “The future is here and it’s Ncuti! Sometimes talent walks through the door and it’s so bright and bold and brilliant, I just stand back in awe and thank my lucky stars. Ncuti dazzled us, seized hold of the Doctor and owned those TARDIS keys in seconds. It’s an honour to work with him, and a hoot, I can’t wait to get started. I’m sure you’re dying to know more, but we’re rationing ourselves for now, with the wonderful Jodie’s epic finale yet to come. But I promise you, 2023 will be spectacular!”

Charlotte Moore, Chief Content Officer, says:”Ncuti has an incredible dynamism, he’s a striking and fearless young actor whose talent and energy will set the world alight and take Doctor Who on extraordinary adventures under Russell T Davies’ new era.”

Further details will be announced in due course.

The penultimate season for Tom Baker’s Fourth Doctor, with a full season of Lalla Ward as Romana, is the next release to come to Blu-ray! In 1979, Tom Baker’s Doctor was in full flight. With Douglas Adams (The Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy) as script editor, the series leaned into Baker’s penchant for humor, and paired his Doctor with a regenerated Romana (Lalla Ward) as his traveling companion. Together, they would form one of the most popular Doctor/companion duos of all time. Although the season was crippled behind-the-scenes by strike action (resulting in the season finale being abandoned part-way through production), it remains a beloved slice of Doctor Who history that features the return of Davros and the Daleks, and one of the all-time classic stories: Douglas Adams’ own City Of Death. 7-disc set.
NOTE: this title was previously announced for North American release on April 19th, but has now been delayed three weeks, to May 10th.

COMING ON 4/5:
* The Little Rascals – The ClassicFlix Restorations, Volume 5 (ClassicFlix)
$39.99 SRP Blu-ray

—–Remastered, uncut and beautifully restored, now you can see The Little Rascals like never before! With restorations so glorious, it will be like watching these iconic shorts for the first time! With the departure of Wally Albright from “Our Gang” after the filming of Washee Ironee in late 1934, producer Hal Roach temporarily shifted the focus of the series back to George “Spanky” McFarland, as he had done a year before when Dickie Moore left the “Lot of Fun”. That all changed with the talent show-themed short Beginner’s Luck (1935), where one competitor wouldn’t win first prize…but he would soon win fame as one of the most popular “Little Rascals” performers in the franchise’s history. The youngster making his Our Gang debut in Luck was none other than seven-year-old Carl “Alfalfa” Switzer, whose comical countenance – including a lard-assisted cowlick, a face smothered in freckles and a singing voice that was the dictionary definition of “off-key” – was put to use for maximum mirthmaking in such classics as Teacher’s Beau (1935), The Lucky Corner (1936), and The Pinch Singer (1936). Alfalfa’s unpleasant warbling was also a highlight of Our Gang Follies of 1936 (1935), the short that spoofed 1930s musical comedies and solidified the core of Our Gang for the next five years with the introduction of Darla Hood. The Little Rascals – The ClassicFlix Restorations, Volume 5 contains the next 12 Our Gang sound shorts produced by the Hal Roach Studios: Anniversary Trouble (1935) to Arbor Day (1936)…with each short newly scanned and restored from the original Hal Roach 35mm film elements. A must-have for any true Our Gang fan, Volume 5 features the talents of George “Spanky” McFarland, Scotty Beckett, Billie “Buckwheat” Thomas, Matthew “Stymie” Beard, Carl “Alfalfa” Switzer, Darla Hood and Eugene “Porky” Lee. SHORTS (1935): Anniversary Trouble; Beginner’s Luck; Teacher’s Beau; Sprucin’ Up; Little Papa; Little Sinner; Our Gang Follies of 1936. SHORTS (1936): The Pinch Singer; Divot Diggers; The Lucky Corner; Second Childhood; Arbor Day.

* Benjamin Franklin – A Film By Ken Burns (PBS)
$29.99 SRP DVD; $39.99 SRP Blu-ray

—–Benjamin Franklin explores the revolutionary life of one of the 18th century’s most consequential and compelling personalities, whose work and words unlocked the mystery of electricity and helped create the United States. Franklin’s 84 years (1706-1790) spanned an epoch of momentous change in science, technology, literature, politics, and government—fields he himself advanced through lifelong commitments to societal and self-improvement. But Franklin’s life was full of contradictions, and his success as a writer, printer, scientist, and statesman came at a cost to the people closest to him. His influence was unmatched in his time, and his impact remains with us today. “If you would not be forgotten, as soon as you are dead and rotten,” he said in Poor Richard’s Almanac, “either write things worth reading, or do things worth the writing.” Benjamin Franklin did both. Actors: Mandy Patinkin, Carolyn McCormick, Josh Lucas, Liam Neeson, David Quay, Craig Mellish, Paul Giamatti, Joe Morton, Adam Arkin, Tony Beck. Narrator: Peter Coyote. 2-disc set in either format.

Build up your Doctor Who archive with this collectors’ set that includes these stories: DESTINY OF THE DALEKS, CITY OF DEATH, THE CREATURE FROM THE PIT, NIGHTMARE OF EDEN, THE HORNS OF NIMON, and SHADA, with all episodes newly remastered from the best available sources. The penultimate season for Tom Baker’s Fourth Doctor, with a full season of Lalla Ward as Romana, is the next release to come to Blu-ray! In 1979, Tom Baker’s Doctor was in full flight. With Douglas Adams (The Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy) as script editor, the series leaned into Baker’s penchant for humor, and paired his Doctor with a regenerated Romana (Lalla Ward) as his traveling companion. Together, they would form one of the most popular Doctor/companion duos of all time. Although the season was crippled behind-the-scenes by strike action (resulting in the season finale being abandoned part-way through production), it remains a beloved slice of Doctor Who history that features the return of Davros and the Daleks, and one of the all-time classic stories: Douglas Adams’ own City Of Death. 7-disc set.

Produced by Canada’s Skyvision Entertainment, RoboCop: The Series starred Richard Eden in the title role. An 89-minute pilot aired in two parts in March, followed by 21 one-hour episodes. Aimed at a younger audience, the series dialed back the graphic violence of the first two movies, and displayed a tone similar in feel to RoboCop 3. Many of the events and plotlines seen in the films were discarded, with RoboCop: The Series acting as a reset for the once human, now cyborg police officer. The series’ theme song, “A Future to This Life,” was performed by rock legends Joe Walsh and Lita Ford. Additionally, the series included songs by the Band, Dave Edmunds, Nicky Hopkins, Iron Butterfly, KC and the Sunshine Band, and Todd Rundgren, among others. Both the Blu-ray and DVD box sets feature the pilot film, all 21 original episodes, and bonus features.
