IN OTHER NEWS... 04/02/2013

And In Other News... Who's returning to Doctor Who (and no, that's not a question), GI Joe 3 and a podcast round-up!

A couple of new podcasts dropped since we last spoke, so be sure to check them out!
Doctor Who
It's not a late April Fool's joke and yes, the BBC have confirmed it. David Tennant and Billie Piper are set to return for the Doctor Who 50th Anniversary Special.

David Tennant and Billie Piper to return for blockbuster celebrations with John Hurt also confirmed.

The BBC has today revealed some of the all-star cast that will mark the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who. David Tennant and Billie Piper will join current Doctor and companion, Matt Smith and Jenna-Louise Coleman, while John Hurt (Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, Alien, Harry Potter) will also co-star.

Last seen as the Doctor on January 1st 2010, this will be the first time Tennant has reprised his role as the Tenth Doctor. During his reign as the Time Lord, Tennant appeared in three series as well as several specials. He was first revealed as the Doctor in the 2005 series finale, ‘The Parting of the Ways’.

Meanwhile Billie Piper, who played companion Rose Tyler for two series following the reboot in 2005, will appear in the show for the first time since featuring in Tennant’s last episode, ‘The End of Time’ in 2010.
Also confirmed to join the cast is John Hurt who will also co-star in the 3D anniversary special that will form part of blockbuster celebrations, set to take over the BBC. Produced by BBC Cymru Wales for BBC One, the 50th anniversary will be written by Steven Moffat and Directed by Nick Hurran.

Rumors - and we stress at this point that they're still just that - also abound that Christopher Eccleston has also been approached with a view to reprising his role of the Ninth Doctor in the show but as of yet we have no confirmation on that.

GI Joe 3
Paramount, it seems, has fallen in love with GI Joe once more - no doubt due to the $132 million GI Joe: Retaliation garnered in its opening week - and has announced plans for a third movie. No word yet on who'll be returning or who's to helm the as-yet-untitled sequel but it's still very early days...
