As Andrew Lincoln warned us the other day, some stuff is certainly about to hit the fan on The Walking Dead. People (as in Carl’s buddy Patrick) are dying. Pigs (as in Rick’s farm animals) are dying. And crazy women are walking around in the woods attempting to find meals for their zombie head husbands. So much for there being 30 days without an incident. READ FULL STORY

The simulcast of the Doctor Who 50th anniversary special show “Day of the Doctor” is now just over a month away — unless, of course, you’ve popped ahead in your TARDIS to the future (in which case, NO SPOILERS!) Regardless, the BBC has just released the first batch of photos from the show, which feature current Doctor Matt Smith, former Doctor David Tennant, “mystery” Doctor John Hurt, Jenna Coleman, and Jemma Redgrave who plays the Brigadier’s daughter Kate Stewart.
'Walking Dead': Andrew Lincoln warns 'something terrible happens that divides the group irrevocably'
As if being lured by a crazy woman in the woods to be a meal for her zombified husband in the premiere wasn’t bad enough, Andrew Lincoln warned that things are about to turn a lot more ghastly on The Walking Dead. Lincoln stopped by the Entertainment Weekly Radio studios (SiriusXM, channel 105) to discuss the premiere episode of the AMC drama, and he teased that the new illness that has infected both Rick’s pig and Carl’s friend Patrick has no signs of slowing down anytime soon.
“I love this story arc,” said Lincoln. “You wait and see where it heads. It puts far more pressure on the group, and something terrible happens within this story arc that divides the group irrevocably.” Uh-oh. (Maybe if Daryl Dixon would stop licking his fingers and then shaking people’s hands they could at least slow down the spreading of germs. Where’s the Purell?!?) READ FULL STORY
How crazy is the next season of Doctor Who going to be? Earlier this year, it was announced that the 12th Doctor will be played by Peter Capaldi, best known for his foul-language-loving character Malcolm Tucker from the incredible British sitcom The Thick of It. Now Ben Wheatley, the director of such entertaining but extremely violent films as Kill List and Sightseers, has told Screen Daily that he is to oversee the first two adventures of the new season, which will be broadcast next year.

The big news out of the The Walking Dead panel at this weekend’s New York Comic-Con was the announcement of three new cast members: Josh McDermitt, Christian Serratos, and Southland actor Michael Cudlitz, who will play Sgt. Abraham Ford. The latter character is a favorite among fans of the Walking Dead comic, which is written by Robert Kirkman, one of the TV show’s executive producers. So why did he and his fellow zombie overlords think Cudlitz was right for the role of the hyper-capable military man?
Watching the season 4 premiere of The Walking Dead, it was easy to imagine you had fallen into a Rick Grimes-esque coma and missed a few shows. When did Andrew Lincoln’s much-tortured cop become so handy with a hoe? When was David Morrissey‘s depth perception-challenged maniac The Governor going to make an appearance? And, perhaps most bewilderingly, when did it become okay for Carol to call Daryl “Pookie”?

The Walking Dead returned on Sunday. And not only is it the first episode of season 4, but it will also mark the first episode of the Scott M. Gimple era. Gimple, a writer on the past two seasons of the AMC drama, replaces Glen Mazzara as showrunner. Mazzara, of course, himself replaced original showrunner Frank Darbaont. So there has been quite a bit of replacing going on. It’s kind of like a semi-famous Minneapolis punk band or a goofy Keanu Reeves movie.
So what will the new season feel like under Gimple? Well, star Steven Yeun, who plays Glenn, has a word you might not expect to describe it. “This season is very beautiful,” said Yeun when he stopped by the Entertainment Weekly Radio (SiriusXM, channel 105) studio this week. Come again? Beautiful? Yep. Yeun went on to tell Jenna Morasca and me how the emphasis on character development and story will lead to some truly touching moments. Of course, those moments are just designed to crush us that much more when horrible things start happening to the characters we love the most. I know, diabolical.
Yeun also talked about the evolution of Glenn (“He’s seen the horrors of this world more than anybody else”), losing so many of his castmates in last season’s bloodbath, and why “we’ve all been Obamaed.” What does he mean by that? Well, you can listen to the whole thing now on the InsideTV Podcast and find out. Just click on the audio player icon below as Yeun previews what to expect in tonight’s big season premiere.

It’s the question Norman Reedus gets asked more than any other: When is The Walking Dead‘s Daryl Dixon going to fall in love? Or at least get a little action? Most of the romantic talk surrounding Daryl also involves Carol, and not just because their names are so gosh darn similar. Both are somewhat damaged characters who have leaned on each other during tough times. Reedus told EW that Daryl will, in fact, have a love interest in season 4, but it’s not whom you might expect. It’s…well, we’ll let Norman explain.
“I think in season 4, he and the Glenn character, I think they really have a lot of romantic time that they spend together, and alone time,” says Reedus. “And I think, you know, it is a prison and I think that that’s probably where his character is going to go. Maggie? Who’s Maggie? You know what I mean? It’s Glenn and Daryl from here on!”
WHAT?! Okay, we assume he’s kidding, but perhaps you should click on the video player below to see for yourself as Norman expands upon the future of Daryl’s love life. And as if that’s not amazing enough, you also get to see behind-the-scenes video footage of Reedus snuggling a dog, causing approximately half the female population of North America to simultaneously swoon.

We’ve been delivering relentless scoop to you about season 4 of The Walking Dead for the past few months. There have been first look photos, sexy-time GIFs, and videos of the cast telling us what to expect when the premiere rolls around on Oct. 13. But let’s put all that aside for now to share a fun moment from the set. I was chatting with Norman Reedus in his trailer at night while we waited out a rain storm that was holding up shooting for the evening. Reedus was cradling a big — and what I sincerely hope and have to assume was fake — shotgun in his arms while we spoke. Then a knock came on the door, and Reedus immediately pointed the phony firearm in that direction. Well, who should happen to walk in but Andrew Lincoln, also looking to kill…some time. He came in and plopped himself on the floor. Presented now for your enjoyment is a snippet of the conversation that followed. READ FULL STORY
Walking Dead fans were thrown last December when it was announced there was going to be a changing of the guard when it came to showrunner duties for season 4 of the AMC drama (which premieres Oct. 13). The move was especially surprising seeing as how the departing showrunner, Glen Mazzara, had already taken over for original main man Frank Darabont when Darabont was removed form the show halfway through season 2. If there is a silver lining for fans worried about all the upheaval, however, it comes from the fact that the man now assuming the showrunner duties is the same man responsible for writing some of the show’s most acclaimed episodes.
Scott M. Gimple — who wrote season 2’s “Pretty Much Dead Already” (in which poor Sophia finally emerged out of the barn) and last season’s “Clear” (which saw the return of Lennie James’ Morgan) — has certainly proven his chops. It is also clear from my conversations with the cast that they are universally excited with the new more character-driven approach that he plans to take in season 4. Of course, “character-driven” does not mean there won’t be any action. The season premiere features one of the biggest and most intricate action scenes the series has ever filmed. I spoke with the new man-in-charge about taking over the controls and what to expect in season 4 of The Walking Dead. (Note: Read through both pages for the full Q&A.) READ FULL STORY
The Walking Dead returns for season 4 on Oct. 13, but when it does, several of the original cast members will not be returning with it. Season 3 was a bloodbath and many of the victims claimed were folks that were around when the show first started: Sarah Wayne Callies (Lori), IronE Singleton (T-Dog), Laurie Holden (Andrea), and Michael Rooker (Merle) all watched their characters meet an untimely demise.
One person who was certainly not happy to see them go was Norman Reedus, who (still) plays Daryl Dixon on AMC’s zombie apocalypse drama. “I hate it when one of the OGs goes,” Reedus told me while taking a break from filming on the set of season 4. “It really bums me out. It’s taken three seasons for people to get wrapped up in certain characters. I think once you invest in those characters to have those characters go is just like ‘Ah, man.’ I think people are sort of left hanging on a string.” READ FULL STORY
The West Georgia Correctional Facility will look very different when season 4 of The Walking Dead premieres on Oct. 13. That’s not just because there is a garden growing and livestock in the fields — there are also people. A lot more people. And according to star Andrew Lincoln, while there is safety in numbers, more people and can also mean more problems. “There’s around about 50 new characters, and that puts obviously an enormous pressure on the group with the practical necessities,” Lincoln told us in the video clip below while taking a break from his recent Entertainment Weekly cover shoot.
