Homer Who?

Its always exciting when two seemingly distant satellites of pop culture momentarily share the same orbit- making Geekdom feel that little bit more connected. Fans are usually the engine behind this; fan fiction where Optimus Prime unites with M.A.S.K, homemade trailers cobbled together from existing footage promising the forth-coming release of Teen Wolf 3 and…

Wrong Figures, Wrong Answer

The Daily Mail online has reported claims that this year’s series of Doctor Who has lost roughly 1.2 million viewers and only managed an average of 6 million. The article also mentions that David Tennant’s last series in 2008 managed to average 7.2. Bafflingly, the article comments that the 2010 series opener only managed to…

Actually, you probably will: David Tennant. He’s up for the Best Actor/Television prize against Torchwood‘s John Barrowman, and Lost‘s Matthew Fox, among others.  It may prove to be…
