Jodie Whittaker talks about Doctor Who’s filming schedule

In an excerpt released by The Two shot podcast, Jodie Whittaker talks about the challenges of the Doctor Who filming schedule.

It’s rewardingly hard because every night you go home and the next day is your big day as well. That’s the bit I’m not used to. I’m used to going in and it being like Monday and Tuesday are pretty light. I’m not in Wednesday or Thursday and Friday is a big day. And this, every day’s the big day and for nine months. I’ve never done that. I’m sure it’s happened to lots of people, it’s just never happened to me. I think that was overwhelming, was I gonna always be on top of my lines? It’s the lines that are the hardest part.

The full interview will be released on Thursday morning. The podcast can be found here.

New Doctor Who trailer

SDCC is in full swing and BBC America have treated us to a brand new Doctor Who trailer. Spoilers. It’s awesome.

Jodie Whittaker to appear at SDCC

It’s been confirmed the new cast of Doctor Who, will be appearing at this year’s San Diego Comic con in July.

The Doctor Who panel will feature Jodie Whittaker with two of her three companions Tosin Cole, and Mandip Gill.

They will also be joined by the new Showrunner Chris Chibnall and Executive Producer Matt Strevens.

The panel will be hosted by Chris Hardwick, of Nerdist fame.

There’s been speculation recently, that the series 11 trailer will debut during England’s fist game in the 2018 World Cup, however I would put money on it debuting during the Doctor Who panel at SDCC.

Attack the Block DVD review

In 2001 Joe Cornish was mugged, outside his house. He wondered what would have happened if an alien invasion had taken place, during the mugging. The kids he feared at that moment would have become useful. Their savagery would have become an asset. Ten years later, Attack The Block hit cinemas.

Joe, replaced himself with a female called, Sam (Jodie Whittaker). Sam is a well-spoken, recently graduated nurse. Who has just moved in to the Brixton tower block and one day, on her way home from work, she’s mugged by a gang of youths, then chased by aliens.
The leader of the gang, is fifteen-year-old, Moses (John Boyega), who decides to “tool up” and defend the block. The movie is incredibly fast-paced. We’re not really given a second to settle down, and think about what’s happening. The kids do start out, as the caricatures, the daily mail, write about. But they soon win us over you genuinely care about them by the end of the film. Joe Cornish has written and directed a nice little, gem of a movie.  This is a fun film it’s not a perfect film, the aliens are like something out of 80’s Doctor Who and the final scene, doesn’t quite have the ‘punch the air’ moment, it thinks it does. Maybe it’s because of my British cynicism, I wasn’t moved by the sight, of Moses, heroically swinging from a union flag. I imagine that’ll work better, in the inevitable US remake, where the 30-year-old, playing the teenager swoops in and saves the day, on the good old stars and stripes. This really is a fun, enjoyable movie. If Cornish’s next film, is as good as his debut, then I guarantee you, in ten years time, Joe Cornish will be a power-house in Hollywood.
