The Daleks are coming to season 7 of Doctor Who

Production continues on the seventh season of Doctor Who since its revival back in 2005 (which is the best free tv ever when you watch it streamed on netflix), and a few more details about the new series run have popped up this week.

Firstly, we now know that it’s the first episode of the series, the one being penned by Steven Moffat, that will feature the Daleks. Lots of Daleks, in fact, from every era of the show. It sounds like a fine way to kick of what’s going to be the 50th birthday season on free TV and their other parts of the Who franchise, and we’re promised explosions, too. Always welcome.

The first half of the series has also fallen into shape. A lot of this is known, but one or two gaps have been filled in. Episodes two and four, then, are the ones penned by Chris Chibnall. The first of the two, the one that includes Mark Williams, Rupert Graves and David Bradley in its cast, was apparently filmed partly at Bad Wolf Bay, so make of that what you will. It’s already well known that episode three has been penned by Toby Whithouse, and will take the Doctor to the wild west (albeit filmed in Spain).

Episode five, meanwhile, is one where we see the return of the Weeping Angels. Steven Moffat has written this one, and it’ll be the farewell episode for Rory and Amy. It’s been revealed at the recent Doctor Who Convention that some of the filming for this one will be taking place in New York (although the episode is currently shooting in Cardiff).

The Christmas special will be episode six, which is where new companion Jenna-Louise Colemen will come in.

Blogtor Who also reports that River Song is set to make an appearance in the series somewhere along the line.

There are still lots of gaps to fill in, as you might expect, but as we find out more, we’ll let you know…

Sneak peek of the first scene from “Spartacus: Vengeance”

Starz has just released the first scene from the follow-up series to “Spartacus: Blood and Sand,” entitled “Spartacus: Vengeance,” and let’s just say things kick off with a bang

IGN has the exclusive first look at the opening scene of this show which debuts next month. The premise continues the story of Spartacus and the other slaves from the House of Batiatus breaking free at the end of the last season (spoiler alert? Too late now). The video also features a special introduction from new Spartacus star Liam McIntyre, as he explains what you are about to see.

Just a quick warning, if you don’t like blood (CG or otherwise), this is probably not the vid for you. But, if you have never seen the show before, this should start your bloodlust for more episodes!

Winter is coming, and so is season two of “Game of Thrones” – new trailer

Tonight on HBO, the channel unveiled a new teaser trailer with snippets of behind-the-scenes footage from their television adaptation of George R.R. Martin’s “Game of Thrones.”

The second season picks up where the first one left off, following GRRM’s sequel book entitled “Clash of Kings.” This is a spoiler-free zone, so I won’t tell you what happened next in the book, nor what happened in season one for those who have missed it, but it’s a good time to start catching up on the many events of the series. If you thought the first season was crazy, you have no idea what to expect from the next one! All of your favorites (that survived the first season) are about to get neck-deep in a whole new world, so prepare for some serious shocks.

The second season of “Game of Thrones” will debut in April, 2012, only on HBO.
