Say hello to the new Doctor Who.
Today in a special telecast announcement on the BBC, Pete Capaldi was introduced as the 12th Doctor. Capaldi is best known for his role as foul-mouthed spin-doctor Malcolm Tucker in the BBC series The Thick of It. Brought up in Glasgow, Scotland the 55 year old revealed that he was happy that he final could tell everyone that he was the new Doctor.
“It’s so wonderful not to keep this secret any longer, but it’s been so fantastic,” Capaldi said after the news was revealed on a live BBC One show. The hardest part was keeping the secret from his daughter who was keeping a eye on the internet trying to find out who the next Doctor would be.
So is this the right choice or would you have picked someone else.
I personally will be waiting until the first regular season of Doctor Who starring Peter Capaldi to decide. But honestly it will still the Doctor.
Hey Poppers and welcome back to Movie Monday.

The BBC has announced that the three episode series In The Flesh has been picked up for a second season. The second season will also only three episodes. It seems that zombies are a big hit all over the world.
If you have not seen the series I highly recommend that you find it and give it a watch. Not like you typical zombie story. In The Flesh tells the story of Kieran Walker as a PDS survivor. PDS (Partially Dead Syndrome) is what the partially dead have. A treatment has been created to help the undead rehabilitate back into into the world of the living. This is not your typical zombie show/movie and throw a new twist into the old zombie eating the flesh show. So again spend sometime finding this show it is worth it.
Okay, okay, okay.
I first saw a write up and video on The Mary Sue about how we need a Wonder Woman movie and why we do not have one. I totally agree that we need a Wonder Woman movie and we need it soon before Hollywood decides that super hero movies are no longer a money maker. Well the next day The Mary Sue posted a video by directed by Leo Kei Angeleos, written by George H. Ruiz & Leo Kei Angelos, produced by George H Ruiz and original music by Glen Cheney.
This short film stars Hailey Bright, Chester See and Doug Jones
I love this short and unless you a male chauvinist you can not love this depiction of a strong female charactor. Actress Hailey Bright is AWESOME in the lead and I would to see her in a full length film version.
So watch this and you tell Hollywood to get off their asses and make a good treatment of Wonder Woman.

This one man production created between 1998-2006 was created by Chris Jones. We follow a book worm as he get on a bus on a stormy night and finds himself sitting beside a gold fish. But the gold fish is not ordinary gold fish when the book worm turns on some music.
A cute interesting short film that I hope you find interesting also. The short has over 2.5 million hits on Youtube.
So sit back Poppers and watch this amusing short.
