A new BBC America Original Supernatural Series INTRUDERS is premiering this Summer.

INTRUDERS is about a secret society devoted to chasing immortality by seeking refuge in the bodies of others. 

A contemporary, chilling, paranormal tale set in the moody Pacific Northwest, INTRUDERS spins a fascinating and complex web of drama. As strange, apparently unrelated events start happening, multiple story-lines — a missing wife, an assassin covering his crimes, a child on the run — begin to intertwine to reveal a conspiracy that will forever change our understanding of human nature.

Starring John Simm and Mira Sorvino with James Frain & Tory Kittles. From Writer & Executive Producer Glen Morgan (The X-Files) based on Michael Marshall Smith’s novel ‘The Intruders’.

Don’t let them in. Watch the teaser now.

Doctor Who: would Star Trek's William Shatner make a good Master? | Radio Times

"Is The Master coming back? Who knows?" said Matt Smith last night at the launch of the Doctor Who Christmas special. It’s one of many questions surrounding next year’s 50th anniversary.

But if the Doctor’s arch nemesis did return to wish him happy birthday and destroy the world, who would play him?

John Simm is the most recent actor to fill the role of the evil Time Lord but if he was to regenerate who would Smith like to see take his place? 

“We’d love to have William Shatner on Doctor Who I’m sure. He’s a sci-fi God! He’d be great,” Smith told Getty, before adding “John Simm is pretty damn good in the role, though”.

John Simm: “I’d like to take the Master to a very dark place” | Radio Times #UPDATE BELOW!

John Simm would like to reprise his role as the Master in Doctor Who, he’s revealed.
“I’d love the opportunity to play him differently,” he told an audience at Cheltenham Literature Festival last week. “I’d love to have another take on him, to be a bit quieter.”
Simm was the seventh actor to take on the role of the Doctor’s arch-adversary – most recently in the 2009 Christmas special – and was notable for his manic cackling.
"There’s a new writer now" he continued, referring to Davies’ successor Steven Moffat – “and I’m sure his take on him would be different so I’d be interested to have a look at it. I’d like to take the Master to a very, very dark place.”

Update: @john_simm: Hi folks, the master thing is honestly a non story. I was answering a specific question at a Q+A. s’been taken out of context. #sorry

Anglophenia: Doctor Who Rogues Gallery

The Master

Every Holmes needs a Moriarty, ever Scooby Doo needs an embittered janitor. The Doctor has the Master, a rival Time Lord who appears to be slightly more successful at Time Lording than his eccentric fellow Gallifreyan (fully working chameleon circuit on his TARDIS, for starters), apart from one problem: he’s mad. In fact, he’s mad and he’s bad, and most definitely dangerous to know.

Despite the many battles he has fought with the Doctor, there are still a few unanswered questions follow in his wake.

1: Who came first? The Master or the Doctor? And who needs the other more?

2: Unless a whole series of Time Lords called the Cake Shop Owner or the Blacksmith suddenly turn out to have existed all along, he and the Doctor are the two Gallifreyans who’ve picked job title names, and added the definitive article. Why?

3: Did the Doctor pick his healing name in opposition to the chaos and destruction caused by his former classmate? Or did the Master, on observing what a rogue Time Lord can get away with, choose to follow the Doctor and try to beat him, picking his name as a form of oneupmanship?

4: What does he actually hope to gain with all of his nefarious plans? He’s not really equipped to rule, being cruel and despotic and far, far too capricious to do anything other than turn countries, planets, galaxies upside down and then run off, giggling. In short, what does he hope to be the Master of? Despair? Or is he merely trying to spoil the Doctor’s day?

Answer these questions and more over on Anglophenia.

@Mythologicalx: @steven_moffat can you either confirm or deny IMDB’s claim that @John_simn is coming back to Who?
@steven_moffat: @Mythologicalx Yes, I could do either of those things.

btw, in order to clear a bunch of messages out of our ask box…
Please don’t believe everything you read on IMDB. Anybody with an account can edit it. In fact, we’ve submitted our own Series 7 cast change for approval:

WATCH: 25 Celebs Who Have Appeared on ‘Doctor Who’

With the Star Trek movie beaming up Noel Clarke (a.k.a. Mickey Smith), we look at some of the biggest celebs who’ve traveled through the Whoniverse. While the list is far from complete — we’ve left off the obvious recent Doctor Who regulars like Alex Kingston, John Simm, Bernard Cribbins, and Gavin & Stacey‘s James Corden — it provides an overview of the star-studded talent who’ve dazzled us over the series’ nearly 50 years. Also: check out our list of the five best Doctor Who guest stars from the modern era, in our humble opinion.

See all 25 videos at Anglophenia. Anglo’s list includes Simon Pegg, Carey Mulligan, Andrew Garfield, John Cleese, Anthony Stewart Head, and others. Glaring omission?

Merlin’s Colin Morgan

Vote in the Anglo Fan Favorites Tournament: The Men of 2011

Anglophenia has a poll to decide the “favorite British TV and movie stars of 2011” OF ALL TIME! (we may have added that last bit.)

Ten, Eleven, Captain Jack, and The Master are in play but b/c this has been publicized primarily through the tweeter and teh facebooks, some of our boys are losing.

And I’m sorry. I’m so so sorry but some of you will be very upset to learn that someone really important, your favorite companion, the PERFECT HUMAN BEING is missing from the list…

… there’s no Wilfred.

Doctor Who related poll links are here:

+ Matt Smith vs James McAvoy

+ David Tennant vs Damian Lewis

+ John Barrowman vs Ewan McGregor

Benedict Cumberbatch vs John Simm

Which guy is the ultimate Anglophile fan favorite of 2011? Colin Firth or Sean Bean? David Tennant or Damian Lewis? Ricky Gervais or Simon Pegg?

The choice is yours: we’re pitting 32 of Britain’s (and a couple of Ireland’s) most popular male TV and movie stars against each in a battle for supremacy.

And we’re doing it tournament style: each week you’ll vote for winners in a set of matchups, whittling down the field until there is one man standing — the Champion.

Rally the troops, lobby your fanbases — there’s a title on the line! (We’ll cover the Women of 2011 later this year.) Round 1 voting ends Thursday at 11 am ET.
