Doctor Who's Arthur Darvill: I Hope Rory Stops Dying

Dr. Who

The constant threat of death may be part of a Doctor Who companion's job description, but for Rory Williams, it's not just a threat. He's died, or at least appeared to die, so many times in the series, he's been compared to South Park's Kenny.

"I think it's gotten a bit much for him, all the dying," Arthur Darvill, who plays Rory, told reporters on a call to promote Saturday's Doctor Who episode, airing at 9/8c on BBC America. "I kept seeing it as a running joke. A lot of times it happens because he puts himself in the way of danger for other people. He's a hero, he's a bumbling hero. I have no idea if it's going to keep happening. I personally hope that Rory just stops dying."

Doctor Who

Only in the world of Doctor Who can the time traveler you've seen as a maternal figure end up being your future, grown-up daughter.

That's the rather absurd reality that Amy Pond (Karen Gillan) faced about the mysterious River Song (Alex Kingston) in the June midseason finale and will continue to cope with when the show returns with the episode "Let's Kill Hitler" on Saturday at 9/8c on BBC America. "After that big revelation... read more

From Nixon to the Moon Landing, Doctor Who Takes On America

Doctor Who

A Yuletide Visit From the Doctor

Dr. Who

It's Christmas in Who-ville! Charles Dickens pretty much invented our modern concept of Christmas and now his fellow Brits are messing with it. Doctor Who: A Christmas Carol, the latest in a series of crazy-popular holiday specials, will find the kindly, time-traveling doc, played by Matt Smith, working some Ghost of Christmas Past-style magic. The plot: Harry Potter favorite Sir Michael Gambon guests as a Scrooge-like nasty, Kazran Sardick, who does his evil best to destroy the spirit of Christmas in an interplanetary city called Sardicktown. In the ultimate humbug, a space liner carrying newlyweds Amy and Rory (series regulars Karen Gillan and Arthur Darvill) is about to crash there, and the all-powerful Sardick will do nothing to help them. To the rescue — and down the chimney — comes the Doctor to set the jerk straight... read more

Matt's Picks: December 20-23

Million Dollar Money Drop

Million Dollar Money Drop (Monday, 8/7c, Fox)
This is how game-show sensations are born — and Fox certainly hopes this will be their version of Who Wants To Be a Millionaire. Airing Monday-Thursday this week (Tuesday and Wednesday's installments air at 9/8c, with a two-hour finale on Thursday), this game, hosted by comedian Kevin Pollak, is pretty simple. Contestants are asked multiple-choice questions with a million dollars in cash on the line. They put the cash on the answers they think are correct — one must always be left blank — and if they're wrong, the cash they've distributed on the wrong answer disappears down a chute. Panic sets in pretty quickly. The two-hour premiere goes head-to-head with the finale of NBC's holiday hit The Sing-Off.

Men of a Certain Age (Monday, 10/9c, TNT)
Yes, Virginia, there are some new episodes of non-reality series airing this week. You just have to know where to look for them. On Men... read more
