Who will live and who will die? That was the question on the lips of fans before last night’s episode of the Walking Dead. Of course, given the nature of AMC’s undead saga, that tends to be the question on the lips of fans before every episode. But this week the query had a particular urgency given the (correct) assumption that the season finale would finally feature the showdown between the Rick-lead prison-ites and the Governor-ruled Woodburians.

But perhaps you still have questions.

If so, we heartily recommend you check out the exclusive video below, filmed during our cover shoot, in which the Doctor Who stars ruminate on these issues and more. READ FULL STORY
How to start watching 'Doctor Who': Star Matt Smith and exec producer Steven Moffat suggest some TARDIS entry points
Are you a Doctor Who virgin who wants to start watching the Time Lord’s adventures, but is daunted by the fact that the British science-fiction show’s half-century history now encompasses literally dozens of seasons, not to mention 11 small screen Doctors, two ’60s-era films, one TV movie, and numerous specials?
Good news! You don’t have to watch every episode of Doctor Who to know what’s going on. In fact, that’s impossible “thanks” to the BBC’s habit during the ’60s and ’70s of wiping the show’s tapes. READ FULL STORY
Peter Jackson says he is still interested in directing an episode of 'Doctor Who' (and names his fee) -- EXCLUSIVE
Peter Jackson has exclusively confirmed that he is still interested in directing an episode of Doctor Who. The Lord of the Rings filmmaker has also named his fee: a Dalek. The offer came in the course of Jackson’s appreciation of the British science fiction show that appears in the new issue of Entertainment Weekly.
Jackson is a diehard Who fan who has been watching the 50-year-old series almost since it began broadcasting and who first expressed his willingness to direct an episode last year. In the EW article, he reveals that he met current Who executive producer Steven Moffat over Christmas and assured him he wasn’t joking. “They don’t even have to pay me,” Jackson writes.

'The Secret Life of the American Teenager': Creator Brenda Hampton reflects on five wonderful seasons
After four seasons of drama, ABC Family’s The Secret Life of the American Teenager launches its final season tonight at 8 p.m. ET. What began as the story of high-schooler Amy Juergens (Shailene Woodley) becoming pregnant by Ricky Underwood (Daren Kagasoff) tonight finds Amy buying a wedding dress and — yes — a guest appearance by Chaz Bono as himself. At this momentous point in the show’s history, creator Brenda Hampton takes a little time to reflect on the highs and highers of working on the drama through the years and reveals a handful of “secrets” behind the production.
We had such a good time doing Secret Life, we hated to see production come to an end last fall. We were hoping to keep going until the baby grew up and graduated from college. We put together a wonderful cast and crew; it was a really great group of people, and we shot at the Warner’s Bros. Ranch, best lot in town. When Steve Schirripa (Leo) left the set for the last time, in thanking everyone, he repeatedly said it was the “best job I ever had in my life.” That made me feel really good because I strive to create an environment where everyone can enjoy the work and do their best, knowing that that’s really an impossible goal. I can get a show done on time and under budget; that’s always possible when you work with Lin Parsons (our line producer/unit production manager/director), but making a production a good experience where everyone still has time for a life… that’s a rare experience in Hollywood. And this was one of those rare experiences. I owe most of the credit to Lin and to Bill Asman (our jovial director of photography). I loved going to work every day, and though the job presented a lot of challenges, I’d have to say that The Secret Life of the American Teenager was also the best job of my life. READ FULL STORY
We always knew that when Rick Grimes and the Governor finally met the result would be war. But who could have imagined it would be a war of words?
'Walking Dead' exec producer Robert Kirkman talks about tonight's show and the long-awaited return of Morgan
Tonight’s episode of AMC‘s undead saga the Walking Dead offered more evidence that reunions between acquaintances in the zombie apocalypse are rarely happy events. In real life, such occasions are all about “You look well” and “My son got into college.” But the long-awaited reunion of Andrew Lincoln’s Rick and Lennie James’ Morgan was more “You look insane” and “My son got turned into a zombie by his undead mom, who I then killed.”
What’s a “Mitchie”? Apparently, that’s what fans of Pretty Little Liars star Shay Mitchell are called, a fact we discovered at our cover shoot for the ABC Family teen drama. EW posed the show’s four stars with several questions, including: “What has been your craziest fan encounter?” Mitchell’s three co-stars — Lucy Hale, Ashley Benson, and Troian Bellisario — almost immediately turned to her. “People get your face tattooed on them!” exclaimed Hale, before the foursome went on to explain what the “Mitchies” are.
Mitchell herself offered this: “There’s no face! But I’ve met a few fans from across the world who’ve had my name tattooed on them.” Then the whole Q&A basically devolves into a further lovefest for Mitchell and her insane fans.

You know how sometimes you lose track of a friend? And they start shacking up with a deranged post-apocalyptic dictator who tortures a couple of your other pals, and wants you dead, and dumps a van full of human flesh-hungry zombies on your doorstep? And then your friend comes round to visit and things get a little, well, aw-kward? Then you will have been unsurprised by the most recent episode of AMC’s undead show the Walking Dead.
The answer to that question is yes, if you consider the clip below. EW has snatched about a minute from Tuesday’s forthcoming hour of ABC Family’s soapy teen mystery Pretty Little Liars – EW’s cover subject this week — that finds Spencer (Troian Bellisario) forcefully warning Emily (Shay Mitchell) that she may be the next one to feel Mona and the “A” team’s wrath.
Holding an ominous funeral sash, Spencer — who has recently been getting it from Mona and the “A” team — points out that the only two letters in the words “deepest sympathy” that aren’t shiny are the E and the M. As in the first two letters of Emily. Remember: We saw one of the “A” minions laying the sash across flowers in the show-ending tag at the end of this week’s episode. “Mona is trying to tell us in her cryptic way,” Spencer warns, “that she’s targeting you next.” Emily brushes it off, but Spencer won’t give up. “She made it seem like something bad was going to happen to you tonight. Look, I’m gonna stay with you for the rest of the day. Do not ignore this!”
Should Emily ignore the supposed warning? Watch the clip and you decide. (And click here to buy this week’s PLL issue!)
