First shot of the Eleventh Doctor's Costume!

It looks pretty good! Not overwhelmingly unique, but it has a lot of room to grow on you with the characterization. I'm excited now. (I think what Karen-as-Amy is wearing is more telling.)

Sean Bean picks up Game of Thrones along with Peter Dinklage.

Casting: officially too good.

Finally: have you heard the rumor that Tennant is going to be playing Bilbo Baggins?

THAT makes a LOT MORE SENSE than the rumor that the big sci-fi movie he's supposed to be in is the Doctor Who flick. I could never figure out who thought a Doctor Who movie was a good idea, since no one in America watches it. Unfortunately, Peter Jackson said he wasn't going to announce anything big at San Diego Comic-Con, which kind of puts my whole conspiracy theory to bed.

I really hope there's no Who movie, though. It just sounds like a bad, bad idea.

It really does pain me to have to write this, but: dude, the Star Trek book line for 2010 looks really crappy. Except for the new JJ-verse novels. (Is it too late to petition for more Gaila?)

I'm basing this on the fact that the books are the only way to get your 24th Century Trek fix, and I'm not all that happy with what happened in Destiny.

This is a spoiler cut for books. )

Why so relevant: the Typhon Pact books seem fun, Riker v. Gorn. But I also still don't like the fact that Ezri Dax is a Captain. No one knows what to do with that character still, pah. It's technically a DS9 book, but what's the big appeal of Ezri Dax v. Breen?

Meanwhile: holy shit, they're jumping the DS9 timeline up to meet the rest of the 24th Century books. But what happens to the next season's storyline, with the Ascendants, the Gamma Quadrant baddies who want to kill the Prophets? Are they going to drop all of it? WILL WE NEVER FIND OUT WHAT HAPPENS TO ODO?

Goddamn.

Meanwhile: Star Trek Online and the IDW comics seem like they've created a second branch of 24th Century canon which is kind of more appealing, but with way less DS9. I don't know where to go with it.
