This blurb will be spoiler-free. The comments will not. Last week, we had a bit of a revelation in the Doctor Who episode “The Name of the Doctor” involving a surprise guest star. Theories abound. Share yours below, confident that your fellow Bureau 42 readers are ready and willing to dissect or support any theory in a highly respectful manner. Those following the series on Region 1/A home video are encouraged to book Tuesday off work, pick it up when the stores open and then get caught up in a marathon.
He’s so fast, Quicksilver, Marvel’s Flash swipe, will appear in both the next X-Men film and the next Avengers– though the latter version will not be able to reference his father, Magneto, or any of the X-Men continuity. Evan Peters will play the X-Men version; no word on who’s in the running for the part in Whedon’s Avengers 2
It’s on Netflix and Amazon Prime, but if you subscribe to neither, you can get every episode of every series from StarTrek.com. For free. The only drawback is that they are Flash-based, so mobile viewing can be tricky.
I might start spending my lunch hours the next few weeks catching up on TAS, just for fun.
The clone wars heat up on Orphan Black.
Of course, we could also discuss this week’s ep of Mad Men, which veered far enough into the Twilight Zone to count as genre.
King’s Landing hosts a wedding, and Tyrion and Sansa spend the night together. Dany meets the Titan’s Bastard. Davos demands proof from Melisandre. Sam and Gilly meet an older gentleman.
Sorry this is so much later than usual. It’s the biggest week we’ve had in a while, and it took time for us to go through all of the releases.
This is the last new “Who” until November 23. It’s going to be a long wait…
