In which I look at the recent speculation that Peter Capaldi is leaving Doctor Who.
Peter Capaldi is a Scottish actor, writer and director. He portrays the twelfth incarnation of the Doctor in Doctor Who and Malcolm Tucker the spin doctor in The Thick of It, for which he has received four British Academy Television Award nominations, winning Best Male Comedy Performance in 2010. When he reprised the role of Tucker in the feature film In the Loop, Capaldi was honoured with several film critic award nominations for Best Supporting Actor
This weeks episode of Arrow brings the character of John Constantine to Star City. After his show was unjustly cancelled by NBC last year, the character was left in limbo, with all the mainstream Networks unwilling to pick the series up for another run. Luckily, the Hellblazers (Constantine fans) spoke up and requested he make an appearance in the Arrow/Flash universe, and it actually works pretty well. Like Robert Downey Jr as Tony Stark, Matt Ryan as Constantine is just a perfect piece of casting. I pity the actor who picks up the role in Justice League:Dark.
I’ll admit now, I don’t normally watch Arrow. I struggled to make my way through the first episode of series one. It felt like a badly made American soap opera from the 80’s. But after this episode, my interest has been piqued.
When this broadcast in the US last week, it saw ratings spike with an extra two million people tuning in. Hopefully it will inspire the team behind Arrow and The Flash to bring Constantine into more episodes. I’m sure there’s space for him in Legends of tomorrow. If not then there’s always Supergirl..
Arrow airs on Wednesday’s at 8pm on Sky One.
If you’re on our site, then there’s a pretty good chance that you’ve re-watched the MCU properties multiple times.
Now, reddit user fater_is_better has listed all the properties in chronological order, it seems like a completly new way to enjoy the MCU again.
