'Sherlock' going to Comic-Con, premiere set for 2014

Sherlock.jpg

The panel is afoot! Or will be, anyway. Sherlock is going to San Diego Comic-Con for the first time, bringing PBS’ Masterpiece cult hit to the fan convention later this month.

The panel will include Steven Moffat (co-creator, executive producer and writer), Mark Gatiss (co-creator, executive producer and writer) and Sue Vertue (producer). We’re told the actors will not be attending (not too surprising, since Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman are landing big-screen projects) but there will be “surprises.” A Sherlock-loving EW writer named Hibberd will moderate. The panel’s exact day and time will be released by Comic-Con tomorrow.

We can also confirm that season three of Sherlock will indeed run in the U.S. on PBS in 2014, more details on that here (as usual, those Brits will get Sherlock first for some reason … something about making the show?).

Fans will surely have plenty of questions, and we’ll try to see if producers will give us any hints how the great detective survived his rooftop plummet in last season’s cliffhanger (roofhanger?).

Sherlock has previously gone to NYC Comic-Con, but not the San Diego mothership. We’re actually told this is the first time any PBS series has paneled at the 44-year-old fan convention — could that be true? So start your Downton Abbey 2014 lobbying campaign now. SDCC could use more fans dressed in Edwardian hats.

'Walking Dead': Epic season 4 poster

Walking-Dead-Season-4-Banner.jpg

AMC has just unveiled the first The Walking Dead season 4 teaser poster (link below), which will be displayed as a banner at Comic-Con in San Diego later this month. The image has Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) and Daryl Dixon (Norman Reedus) front and center, while Tyreese (Chad L. Coleman) and Michonne (Danai Gurira) — on a horse! — fight off a sea of walkers. Everybody has their weapon of choice. The full image with all the characters is too epic for a mere blog, so here’s a link to the complete full-size image. The Walking Dead returns to AMC this October.

Comic-Con will feature 'The X-Files' 20th anniversary panel

Mulder and Scully fans, the truth is out there…and it’s at Comic-Con.

TV Guide will host a Comic-Con panel celebrating the 20th anniversary of The X-Files, according to an ad in the magazine. Scheduled to appear at the chat, which will take place July 18, are series creator Chris Carter, as well as writer/producers David Amann, Vince Gilligan, Howard Gordon, Darin Morgan, Glen Morgan, John Shiban, Jim Wong as well as more yet-to-be-announced guests.

The question on everyone’s minds, of course, is if series stars David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson will make an appearance. Although not listed in the ad, EW has confirmed that Gillian Anderson will be in attendance; a rep for David Duchovny did not immediately respond to a request for confirmation. Don’t let us down, Special Agent Mulder!

'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.”

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 Walking Dead': Robert Kirkman talks about tonight's show

The-Walking-Dead

The characters on The Walking Dead spent most of tonight’s show enjoying a nice, quiet day — if the word “nice” can be used to describe (in the case of Rick) searching for the ghost of your recently eaten-by-zombies wife and (in the case of Daryl) reminiscing about being physically abused by your father. But things turned very nasty in the final fifteen minutes as the Governor and his goons sent hirsute convict Axel to the great Lynyrd Skynyrd concert in the sky and unleashed a, literal, van-load of walkers onto our beleaguered heroes.

'Doctor Who': Check out the new trailer for this year's special Christmas show -- VIDEO

Does anything evoke Christmas better than a lizard lady, a sepulchral Richard E. Grant, and the threatened destruction of mankind? Heavens, yes — tons of things, in fact. But the aforementioned items do nevertheless all feature in the new trailer for the special Christmas episode of Doctor Who, which premieres on BBC America Dec. 25 at 9 p.m. Also? New companion Jenna-Louise Coleman, frighteningly-teethed snowmen (which are quite Christmassy, if you ignore the frightening teeth), and much more.

Check out the clip below and tell us what you think.

'Walking Dead': Robert Kirkman talks about tonight's midseason finale and the surprise return of [SPOILER]

While tonight’s midseason finale of AMC’s drama The Walking Dead technically belonged in the zombie genre there were times when it looked more like an old school war movie as Rick and his fellow prison-dwellers made their move on Woodbury. “I was there for the filming of this episode,” says Walking Dead executive producer and Walking Dead comic writer Robert Kirkman. “We filmed what I like to call ‘the machine gun scenes’ from two to four in the morning. We got some complaints.”

'Doctor Who': Jenna-Louise Coleman talks about becoming the Doctor's new companion -- EXCLUSIVE

Even by the standards of a show whose central character travels through time and space in a craft disguised as a ‘50s era British police phone box, 2012 has been an interesting year for Doctor Who, the BBC sci-fi series that stars Matt Smith.

Back in March, executive producer Steven Moffat announced that the Doctor’s new assistant (or “companion”) would be played by Jenna-Louise Coleman and that the British actress was set to make her debut in this year’s special Christmas episode, which BBC America is screening on Dec. 25 at 9 p.m. So Who fans were taken by surprise when, this September, Coleman appeared in “Asylum of the Daleks,” the first episode of the current season of Doctor Who, which also starred the Time Lord’s now (dearly) departed companions Amy (Karen Gillan) and Rory (Arthur Darvill).

More bewildering still, Coleman didn’t seem to be playing the role of the Doctor’s new companion — whose name we now know to be Clara — but rather a character named Oswin Oswald who had been converted into one of the dreaded Daleks and who seemingly died at the end of the show.

In the new issue of ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY, Coleman talks, exclusively, about keeping her role in “Asylum of the Daleks” a secret and when fans might get some answers with regards to the Oswin/Clara conundrum. Below, the actress, whose previous credits include the Julian Fellowes-penned Titanic miniseries, ruminates further on these subjects — as well as discussing the forthcoming Doctor Who Christmas show and revealing where Karen Gillan recommends you should eat next time you’re in, uh, Cardiff.

'Walking Dead' executive producer Robert Kirkman talks about tonight's show, 'When the Dead Come Knocking'

Matters turned grim on tonight’s Walking Dead — which is rather impressive for a show which tends to feature more zombie mayhem before its opening credits than Downton Abbey does in an entire season (come on, you lazy aristocratic bastards!).

'Walking Dead' executive producer Robert Kirkman talks about tonight's show, 'Hounded'

Love was in the air during tonight’s episode of the Walking Dead – and that’s not a sentence you get to write too often. But Andrea and the Governor’s taking of their relationship to the next level wasn’t the only big news as Merle and his goons made the mistake of trying to take down Michonne and we found out just who has been calling Rick.
