Well what do you know? Heroes is back!

31 July 2008: Heroes is back, but is it too little too late? Seven ignored pleas from fans to air the last two episodes of Season 2 Generations before the writers strike in the US crippled productions of pretty much all scifi shows except those in production in Canada. The intransigence of the network caused fans to take matters into there own hands and they illegally downloaded or wrote to friends in the US for copies on video tape then distributed them to friends around the country. You know the old adage, one person has 10 friends and they've got 10 friends, say no more

The network is promoting eps 210 Truth & Consequences and 211 Powerless as "Premiere Movie Length Episode".Don't laugh, it's true....

For those unfortunate folks who didn't see the final two episodes tune in to Seven at 9.30pm on Wednesday 6 August 2008, except of course if you're into Hollowmen, House or Cold Case.

Mo spills the beans on Heroes S3

29 July 2008: Mo Ryan (AKA The Watcher) over at the Chicago Tribune is on assignment at the 2008 Comic Con, some people get it good eh?

Anyway, she went to the Heroes corner of the Comic Con Extraganza and reports that Tim Kring (creator/producer) sent the nearly 7,000 strong fans into a tizz when he announced that the premiere episode of Season 3 would be aired. Mo continues and there are spoilers ahead.....

"I’m dividing the storylines in the season premiere into a few basic categories. I’ll put the Maya-Suresh storyline into one paragraph, the Sylar storyline into another, etc., even though these plots are intercut with each other during the actual episode.

"The first scene: The first scene is set four years in the future. Peter meets a dark-haired Claire. They talk about the best way to prevent a series of bad events, and in the end, she tries to shoot him but he dodges the bullet, “Matrix” style. The rest of the episode takes place in the “present day.”

"The Maya-Suresh storyline: Might as well get this pile of sludge out of the way first. After explaining that he’s stashed Molly somewhere safe, Suresh babbles about his “father’s research” blah blah blah, and extracts something from Maya’s blood that helps him to understand how the abilities of the heroes work. He’s able to isolate the chemical that gives humans their special properties, and Maya tells him he should get rid of the syringe holding that chemical, because having special powers is a “curse.” To the surprise of no one, Suresh injects himself with the chemical and becomes super-powered Suresh.

A recurrent image of Earth exploding is seen in the episode; in the Sureshstory, the image is on the side of a building. Continue the read here.To comment go to our blog or the Season 3 Heroes Shed over at The Happy Place Forums

Dr Who Magazine #398


To view the covers please go here >>

"Davros himself, actor Julian Bleach, talks exclusively about taking on the role of the Daleks’ creator in the latest Doctor Who Magazine.

"Is the fact that other actors have played the part in the past a help or a hindrance? “That can make it harder to approach it afresh,” considers Julian, “but it’s more of a problem if you’re trying to find a new interpretation of the character. What I was trying to do with Davros was to recreate – and match as closely as possible – a previously established character.” So what’s Julian’s take on Davros? Twisted megalomaniac? Mad scientist? Misguided genius? “All of those things, but I’d say the character was very probably originally inspired by Hitler, and I found that to be quite a useful reference point, particularly in some of his more dogmatic speeches!”

"It’s not just Davros who’s quizzed this issue – DWM has been keeping up with the Joneses (Martha, Francine, Harriet and Ianto), the Smiths (Mickey, Sarah Jane, Luke and Mr Smith, and even the Doctor at one point) and a host of Tylers and Nobles, as well as the odd Mott, Cooper and Harkness. This, then, is one of DWM’s most ambitious projects ever: in issue 398, DWM talks to the entire regular and returning cast of The Stolen Earth and Journey’s End! Find out which former companion had to have an injection to stop her vomiting. Discover whose bottom to hold onto in a crisis, and whose gave Catherine Tate a shock. Learn which actress is happy to “mug away in the background.” And establish who would win in a Dalek Crucible-based wind-breaking competition!

• David Tennant
