Doctor Who: Closing Time Tonight

In the last few days of his life, the Doctor pays a farewell visit to his old friend Craig, and encounters a mystery, as the time-travelling drama continues.
People are going missing, a silver rat scuttles in the shadows of a department store, and somewhere close by the Cybermen are waiting…
The Doctor is played by Matt Smith, Craig by James Corden, Amy by Karen Gillan and Rory by Arthur Darvill.

Cybermen are my favourite monsters (I even prefer them to The Daleks) so I cannot wait for this episode. Be there at 7:10 on BBC1 or BBC HD.

Like The Lodger, It’s a more of a fun episode with some very funny lines. But there are also couple of good scares
The Cybermen aren’t in it for that long really, but it’s longer than they were in A Good Man Goes to War
Karen Gillan and Arthur Darvill are still in the opening credits. Just saying
The Cybermen are peeping toms!
The Doctor is in love with Craig and he really wants him to know it
“I am through saving them.”
The Doctor – Here to help
Craig is a pervert
Meet Stormageddon, the Doctor’s new best friend
“…A beam me up… Star Trek teleport”
“Come along bitey”
For the girl who’s tired of waiting
The Doctor can speak the ancient language of baby
A familiar plot solution saves the day
The last few scenes are very, very exciting and another big question is finally answered

David Tennant's 'This Is Jinsy' Tonight

A episode of kooky new comedy This Is Jinsy featuring David Tennant (The Tenth Doctor) will air tonight on Sky Atlantic. Tennant will play Mr Slightlyman the flamboyant host of the wedding lottery with a penchant for plastic surgery.

Speaking about what drew him to the show he said "My very good friend is the second assistant director and I had a call from her saying she was working on something very exciting and that I should get involved. They were approaching people to do guest spots and I think my name had been mentioned.I read the script and it's so unusual - it's difficult to get your head round because you're constantly trying to figure out what it is! Until you get on set, you have no idea how extraordinary this world is, the way that Justin and Chris (who play main characters Sporall and Arbiter Maven) have created it, the way Matt has directed it, and how it all comes together." 

I watched the pilot for this show on BBC Three a year or so ago and enjoyed it immensely so I'll be tuning in. Be there at 10:10pm on Sky Atlantic for a double helping of Jinsy and next weeks episode features Donna Noble actress Catherine Tate.
