"How do we change him back?"
Such impulsive words, which "Impossible Girl" companion Clara will eventually be forced to swallow as she, and we, learn to adjust to yet another fabulous new Doctor, the 12th in his incredible line. As Doctor Who devotees know, change is inevitable in the world of a Time Lord, and each regeneration brings a new personality and energy to the 50-year-old fantasy franchise.
Those Who Kill
"I'm terrified," says Chloë Sevigny between takes on the Pittsburgh set of her new thriller, Those Who Kill. She's not scared by the scene she's shooting, in which her character, homicide detective Catherine Jensen, chats with a coroner (Kerry O'Malley) over a grotesquely desiccated corpse in the morgue. Sevigny is vocalizing her deepest fear: "What if I get stuck on a crappy cop show?"
It feels as though 2014 is quickly shaping up to be the year of the damaged detective on television.
It's fitting that Those Who Kill, A&E's gripping new drama series starring Chloe Sevigny and James D'Arcy, premieres the same week that HBO's True Detective will wrap up its inaugural season. Both shows follow law-enforcement officials who are haunted by the demons of their work — in Sevigny's case, recently promoted homicide detective Catherine Jensen. But while Catherine will draw inevitable comparisons to other tortured investigators, Sevigny's portrayal — like Matthew McConaughey's excellent outing as Rust Cohle in True Detective — infuses the character with a level of nuance that's rarely seen in standard detective fare.
David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson
The truth is out there, but after 20 years, it's not always so easy to recall all the details. TV Guide Magazine West Coast bureau chief Michael Schneider sparked the memories of The X-Files stars David Duchovny (Fox Mulder) and Gillian Anderson (Dana Scully), along with show creator, Chris Carter, at the July 18 Comic-Con panel celebrating the 20th anniversary of Fox's landmark sci-fi mystery series.
Duchovny and Anderson, who rarely appear at such fan events, kicked off the audience hysteria by entering the darkened stage brandishing their character's familiar flashlights...

Bionic Woman cast courtesy NBC
Maybe he got a better offer from The Six Million Dollar Man. Although no official reason was given, The Ausiello Report has learned that Bionic Woman executive producer Glen Morgan (of X-Files fame) has left the buzzed-about fall series. (Can you say "creative differences"? Good, because we're not supposed to speculate.) Says NBC: "Glen Morgan has helped create a great template for Bionic Woman but has decided to pursue other endeavors now. We wish him the best. The creative team of David Eick and Jason Smilovic continue as executive producers on Bionic Woman, and we are excited about the new series' debut September 26." How about you? Still excited about Woman without her main man? In his absence, will his successors make the show better, stronger, faster than before? Discuss. — Additional reporting by Ben Katner
