Here is our first full glimpse at Jodie Whittaker’s Doctor.
This trailer is a bit strange, but that’s to be expected from a new Doctor who trailer featuring a brand new Doctor. It’s too soon for those over at Who to let us know what kind of Doctor Whittaker is going to be. So we get a trailer essentially presenting the new companions. Seems like Whittaker is taking a liking to three individuals in particular, and offers a small gift to each.
The first one is the most unclear, but it seems the man knows someone is there and realizes the change or slow down of time. He’s just enjoying what looks like a plate of baked beans when the reality before him is nearly halted. With this interesting shapes or cracks of light appearing before him. This is suggesting something very interesting indeed. Viewers of CW’s The Flash might find this effect very familiar, and ultimately seems to be hinting at The Doctor moving through time/space unencumbered by the Tardis.
Now the second individual The Doctor meets is a woman who just missed out on the last slice of pizza. So Whittaker takes it upon herself to refill the empty pizza box leaving the woman absolutely puzzled (but delighted, I’m sure.) The third is a little more poetic. Take a seemingly normal looking older gentlemen and swap his boring newspaper with a fun comic book titled “The Beano: Summer Special 1981”.

We’re off to the races with Amazon’s annual Prime Day deals hitting consumers all across the nation. Anticipation was at an all-time high at 3 PM Eastern time, and now many people are being treated to “server down” screens and pictures of cute puppies. This reporter was hoping for a chance to purchase a Nintendo switch at a discounted rate went to my chagrin, I was met with a flurry of errors. Now while it is still early on Amazon prime day one has to wonder how worth it it actually is.
Now while there are a very good amount of deals in the bunch they are few and far between. If you’re looking for deals on movies, music, and gaming you might be mildly successful. Now the full range of deals aren’t yet available, so keep your eye out and your F5 finger at the ready. Let’s see what ambles out of the Amazon forest on this error-ridden, uncertain beginning of Prime Day.
It’s being reported that Overlord, the WWII film being produced by Bad Robot and Paramount is not only done filming, but is actually the next installment in the Cloverfield anthology. It seems like the Cloverfield rumor mill has gone from zero to a hundred in the matter of only a couple days. With the announcement of Cloverfield 3 aka God Particle hopefully keeping the new release day of April 20, 2018, it seems like fans are in for a Clover-filled year. Not only is the news of two new releases in the series enough to stir up some excitement, but it’s also being reported that Netflix is looking to pick up the kaiju/sci-fi anthology franchise.
There is also some ARG buzz beginning to pick up as well. This is the Reddit thread I solely rely on, and it’s updated very frequently.
Here’s my video discussing the updates:
Dolores O’Riordan, lead singer of The Cranberries has died at the age of 46 in London. Rolling Stone has a statement from O’Riordan’s publicist stating, “Irish and international singer Dolores O’Riordan has died suddenly in London today. She was 46 years old. The lead singer with the Irish band The Cranberries was in London for a short recording session. No further details are available at this time. Family members are devastated to hear the breaking news and have requested privacy at this very difficult time.”
The cause of death has not yet been reported.
