Jenna-Louise Coleman: Doctor Who and Clara Gate-Crash Ghost Hunters

Jenna-Louise Coleman and Matt Smith

After Doctor Who's last Cold War adventure, the Doctor and his companion are traveling back a decade.

On Saturday's episode, "Hide" (airing 8/7c on BBC America), the time-hopping duo go back to the 1970s to visit a haunted house. Jenna-Louise Coleman, who plays companion Clara, tells TVGuide.com, "It's very eerie and haunted, and I think the Doctor (Matt Smith) and Clara arrive kind of wanting to play a bit. But actually in Doctor Who-style, it's more than what we think."

Political Animals: What Went Wrong with Elaine Barrish

Sigourney Weaver

After I realized Political Animals wasn't a pet-themed reality show and was actually about an empowered female politician, I was beyond thrilled. Any miniseries — forgive me, "television event" — that could lure Oscar-nominee Sigourney Weaver to the small screen has to be great, right? Well, yes and no. Only about 20 minutes into the premiere and I began to realize how misguided I'd been. Political Animals isn't about a strong female in government. It's just another prime-time soap featuring a woman whose power is her sexuality and whose weakness is men (yawn).

Weaver stars as... read more

DVD Tuesday: Blade Runner the Magnificent

Bladerunner courtesy Warner Bros.

I was dazzled by Blade Runner from the first time I saw it on the day it opened in 1982 The cute n cuddly ET killed it at the box office and reviews were mixed everybody agreed that it was visually dazzling but most critics were underwhelmed by the story but over the years Blade Runners reputation has grown from cult classic to widely recognized masterpiece its often called the best science-fiction film ever made and its unquestionably one of the most influential Theres a new version of the film Blade Runner The Final Cut coming to DVD on Dec 18 following a limited theatrical re-release it was shown at the New York Film Festival last weekend But Blade Runner is great in any versionThe first movie based on a novel by sci-fi visionary Philip K Dick Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep Blade Runner is set in a decaying future Los Angeles where humanoid replicants do humanitys dirtiest jobs from fighting wars to staffing bro read more

Will Charlie Sheen's Cad Get Hitched?

Emannuelle Vaugier, Two and a Half Men

Someone's getting married tonight on the season finale of CBS' Two and a Half Men, and it may or may not be Charlie Sheen's man who loves women. (The first clue should have been when Charlie Harper registered himself at Scores.) Emmanuelle Vaugier, who plays fiancée Mia, brings TVGuide.com up to speed on the nuptials that may be nope-tials. TVGuide.com: The good news is that since the last time we spoke, I have seen read more

Can a Saw II Sexpot Tame Charlie Sheen?

Charlie Sheen and Emmanuelle Vaugier, Two and a Half Men

A ballerina dances back into Charlie's life on tonight's Two and a Half Men (9 pm/ET on CBS), when Emmanuelle Vaugier — who is seemingly everywhere these days — reprises her November 2005 role as Mia for several episodes. Will the Saw II siren be the one to finally make Charlie Sheen's player cough up the "commitment" word? TVGuide.com spoke with the actress about that, her run as Lex Luthor's honey and more.

TVGuide.com: What brings Mia back? Didn't Charlie selflessly let her go, out of deference to poor li'l Jake's crush?
Emmanuelle Vaugier:
Yes, I know! It's never really explained, but read more

With the cancellation ax swinging...

With the cancellation ax swinging left and right this week, let's accentuate the positive, shall we?

As in: Prison Break announcing, at the end of its "fall finale" episode Monday night, that it would return sometime in March, not in May as previously rumored. The addicted among us will still chafe at the wait, no matter how long (or short) it might be. But I'm cool with the show waiting out the first rush of mid-season madness in January and sweeps (complicated by Winter Olympics) in February. When it comes back, in whatever time period Fox chooses, we'll be there.

The episode itself was relatively intense, with Michael & Co. hitting a wall — or, rather, a pipe — in their escape effort, while Veronica finds herself back in the crosshairs of that ridiculous psycho-agent, who murdered his partner in the night's biggest nonsurprise, though not before we learned that Lincoln's so-called "victim" is read more
