It’s new Doctor Who day around the world as the 10th series of the modern era kicks off today on the BBC and BBC America here in the states. Today has been about binge watching last season with Peter Capaldi and Jenna Coleman (who left to play young Queen Victoria in the ITV series “Victoria”, which is seen in the states on PBS). Pearl Mackie makes her debut as the new companion. This is Capaldi’s last season so we begin to speculate who will replace him. Let’s enjoy his brilliance while we can.
The surprise TV hit of the summer is a show that looks like it could have been made 30 years ago. Netflix’s Stranger Things is a suspense horror show set in 1983. It takes place in small Indiana town where one night a boy goes missing. There’s a mysterious government lab, a monster and boys riding around town on bikes.

This show has captured the imagination of many. As a child of the 1980’s it takes me back to the era I came of age in. This week we have been watching it and have thoroughly enjoyed it. Can’t wait til season two.
Anton Yelchin who played Pavel Chekov in the Star Trek movies, recently directed and produced by JJ Abrams, passed away overnight from injuries sustained from an auto accident. He was just 27. He was talented and way too young to pass. Boldy go Anton.
The newest Doctor Who trailer is out and its a massive tease. This shows much more action than we saw in last season. There are a few new and familiar faces here too. I can’t wait til September 19th!
