Question: Recently, Amy Sherman-Palladino gathered some of the cast to film a goodbye dance to the much-beloved ABC Family series Bunheads. I admit it, watching it made me a little misty. I wish more creators respected their fans and casts enough to provide such closure. Do you think such series codas will, or should, become more common? Also, do you think they are a good or bad thing for fans and show runners? Meaning: Does it just prolong the fans' agony of letting a favorite show go by keeping them hoping for one more taste and, on the creative side, label creators as undesirable to work with if they're unable to let their failed ideas go, potentially preventing them from getting future projects produced because no one just wants a copy of something that didn't work elsewhere?
Question: What are your thoughts on the selection of Scottish actor Peter Capaldi as Doctor Who's Twelfth Doctor? I have to admit that I had no idea who he was — I assume he's more of a household name in the U.K. I don't want to prematurely bash the selection and I'm willing to see how things work out, but it seems to be a traditional choice and even more so since the modern Doctor Who series has featured younger actors. During the special that announced the selection, the show runner ...

Dark Archer, John Barrowman
The Dark Archer will pay Starling City a visit on this week's Arrow, and considering John Barrowman's "well-dressed man" was revealed to be Malcolm Merlyn, the father of Tommy (Colin Donnell), it seems only likely that the DC Comics' famed dark archer — aka Merlyn — is one and the same as the new villain plaguing Oliver (Stephen Amell). So is Malcolm the famed Merlyn or is it his son? TVGuide.com turned to Barrowman to get the scoop:
Now that the Green Arrow is coming to The CW this fall, the entire DC Comics canon is at the fingertips of the Arrow producers — and they're definitely game to bring on plenty of famous DC faces.
The CW's new superhero drama will follow the exploits of Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell), a wealthy playboy who survives a boating accident that leaves him stranded on a deserted island for five years where he hones his archery skills to survive, birthing his alter ego, Arrow.
