Kayti Burt Feb 6, 2019

Goldberg was up for playing the iconic lead of Doctor Who in an American adaptation of the series.

There are so many reasons why it's a great time to be a Doctor Who fan. First, we, in The Year of Our Time Lord 2019, get to watch the first female Doctor on our TV screens. Second, former Doctor David Tennant just started a new podcast in which Doctor Who seems to come up all of the time.

In the second episode of David Tennant Does a Podcast with…, Tennant chatted with Whoopi Goldberg, who revealed that she once pitched an American adaptation of Doctor Who in which she would have starred as the Doctor. While American versions of the iconic British TV series don't exactly have the best record, it would have been pretty cool to see what Goldberg's reimagining would have looked like, especially as it means

Wgtc’s Michigan Comic Con 2018 Recap And Gallery

It wasn’t very long ago that I expressed my gratitude to the folks behind Michigan Comic Con for allowing geeks in my home state to partake in yet another sizable event geared toward those of our persuasion. And after being one among thousands to file into Cobo Arena this past weekend, I can say that, perhaps like those of you reading this, I’d made memories to last a lifetime.

Aside from running into many friends I’ve made over the years frequenting the convention scene, I, of course, made a few new ones along the way. Not only that, but the late addition of Kevin Conroy to the guest list was something that was much appreciated, for I’ve yet to see him at a show in this area. Needless to say, the man whom many regard as being the definitive voice of Batman was easily among the

‘Grey’s Anatomy’ doc Chandra Wilson revisits ‘General Hospital’: Could she win Emmy that eluded her at Seattle Grace?
TV Insider reports that “Grey’s Anatomy” star Chandra Wilson will be visiting a different hospital soon. On August 6 she taped a guest appearance on the daytime soap opera “General Hospital.” Could she potentially win an Emmy in daytime after it eluded her in primetime? The Emmys honor guest stars now, so there could be a chance.

Wilson previously guested on “Gh” in 2014 as Tina Estrada, a patient of psychiatrist Kevin Collins (Jon Lindstrom). But this time she’ll play a brand new role: Dr. Linda Massey, who will counsel Stella (Vernee Watson), Jordan (Vinessa Antoine) and Curtis (Donnell Turner). Counseling will be a change of pace from her “Grey’s” role as Seattle Grace Hospital chief of surgery Miranda Bailey, whom the actress has played since that show premiered in 2005.
