I might be alone in this, but I really dislike the Cybermen and don’t find them interesting or threatening at all. That said, if anyone is going to take another stab at them, I’m glad it’s Gaiman.

Doctor Who: New 2012 Season 7 Teaser Trailer
Those BBC America billboards I posted yesterday (via BuzzFeed) somehow grew to over 12,000 notes. What’s fun though are the camps that have formed in response to the image. On the one hand you have the politically correct who are shocked that the BBC could poke fun at British colonialism which took the lives of many and wreaked havoc across the globe for many years, while on the other you have Anglophile Americans (and others) who reblog Sherlock GIFs and find the ads humorous. And then you have the eye-rollers who are mocking the politically correct people for overreacting.
And this has been PCB’s anthropological Tumblr study.
Also there’s another Doctor Who one that reads, “If you were a Time Lord you would have been home by now. Or 700 years ago.”
My Other Commute Is In A TARDIS.

Seriously though if you had a Tardis there’s no chance in hell you’d ever subject yourself to the horrors of the LIRR. Even if a swarm of Daleks were threatening the Earth and basing themselves out of Jamaica.
Underrated in 2011 - The Hour continued to prove that British television wipes the floor with almost everything that America puts on the air. If you didn’t watch it, it’s an easily digestible 6 hour series and will entangle you as well as any so-called American drama.
Programming Note: The Hour premieres tonight on BBC America at 10 pm
It’s been described as Mad Men meets Broadcast News meets James Bond and should be quite good.
I want you all to die from squees, but do it after the episode airs.
Too fuckin’ late. I cannot describe how happy I am that I get this, the Wait, Wait year in review, the Best of the Christmas Specials Doctor Who thing, a DW Marathon AND the new Christmas special, all in 3 days. BBC America really is better than Santa. The only problem? No BBC America at my parent’s house.
BBC AMERICA’S THE NERDIST
Here is a sneak peak at our end of the year special. With Wil Wheaton and Nathan Fillion!
It will take place in 1957 and abandon the espionage aspect that made up a good deal of the first season/series.
Most of the original cast - including Romola Garai, Dominic West and Ben Whishaw - will return to the story of a ’50s BBC newsmagazine show, and the ensemble is getting one hell of an addition in Peter Capaldi as the new Head of News.
