Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett superfans, prepare to be unbelievably excited

Neil Gaiman has given us many good screen adaptations of his booksStardust, Coraline and American Gods are all the progeny of his frankly obscenely rich imagination, but the upcoming Good Omens will be the first adaptation for screen of his and the late Sir Terry Pratchett’s cult hit (although there is a cracking BBC radio version).

David Tennant couldn’t care less about the Doctor Who gender debate

The internet has a lot of feelings about the next Doctor, who just so happens to be a woman. Gasp! 

But, David Tennant has weighed in on all the chatter and, well, he thinks Jodie Whittaker is the perfect choice.

He said the decision to cast Whittaker is “brilliant” and he “can’t think of someone better to join the gang.” How lovely. He added that Whittaker will take the role to a “whole new level.” 

Asked about the online backlash over the new Doctor’s gender, Tennant laughed it off. “Whenever the Doctor changes, there’s always a backlash because that’s a character that people love,” says Tennant. Read more…
