Peter Capaldi remembers the car that came to his London home last August to drive him to the live TV special that revealed him to be Doctor Who's newest star. Because it only took him to a parking lot. "Like in a cheap British spy movie, I was dropped off and told to wait for another car to pick me up," says the actor, whose first full episode in the title role is the Season 8 premiere, airing August 23. "Then I was put in the backseat, covered in a blanket, and taken away to become the Doctor. This is a true story."

Matt Ryan wasn't a Comic-Con newbie this year, but the star of NBC's upcoming series Constantine took the experience to a different level last month in San Diego. The Welsh actor, who describes his experience as "just wow," attended the geek heaven convention last year for the video game Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag, for which he'd done the motion capture for the character of Edward Kenway. But this year, as the star of the highly anticipated adaptation of the cult comic book hit Hellblazer, he was under a much brighter spotlight.

Question: With the passing of the legendary TV talents Robin Williams and James Garner, don't you think it would be remiss if the upcoming Emmys didn't do a clips tribute to both of them? Awards shows have an unfortunate habit of dedicating chunks of time to a theme or subject that either makes no sense or ends up really boring. But these two gentlemen, who broke character boundaries and were excellent actors outside their niche personas, deserve special recognition. I just hope the producers of that upcoming show have the smarts to do something special, outside of the "In Memoriam" roll call. Your thoughts? — Karen
