“Likewise, “Orphan Black,” though obviously female-centric, does not make bank on the “revelation” that women can be good and bad, timid and violent, strong and susceptible Just Like Men. Instead, it plays with the nature of family with the same dexterity it brings to the definition of identity. What is a mother, a child, a sister, a friend, and what is expected of and owed to each?”—'Orphan Black,' Emmy snubs and questions of identity - LA Times (via orphanblack)
We understand there is leaked Doctor Who material on Tumblr. This is part of BBC Worldwide’s ongoing security investigation into leaked unfinished Doctor Who materials. This content is currently being removed and originates from the same Miami server disabled last week, it is not a new issue.
We’d like to thank the amazing Doctor Who fans who are continuing to keep fansites and social media spoiler-free.

Very pleased to announce this new drama series for BBC America.
“I don’t know if this has really been done before—we would go to cities, and we had writers that would make jokes for where we currently were and talk about how our characters would feel about this and what we wanted out of it. Then we’d get a print-out on the way to the shooting location and it was a list of jokes of what we could do if we could fit them in. Sometimes we would fit in quite a lot of the jokes, and sometimes none at all. I’d say, like, 80 to 90 percent of it was improvised. We always knew that we could fall back on these jokes. The parts that I think make for the best TV are when you can tell it’s all improvised, because you never know how it’s going to go, or what the reactions are going to be like.”—Amy Hoggart (Poppy Carlton) in Interview Magazine
