The final episode of the US version of Life On Mars airs tonight, and the producers think sci-fi fans will not be disappointed with the way they tie up the loose ends. The folks at io9 have audiences an interview with the producers you can check out. Meanwhile, BBC America continues to run Ashes to Ashes, the sequel to the original Brit hit production.
April 10th is when Dwarf returns with the Dave TV special; I am ready! And a Video Blogger tip…
A fan favorite for years, K-9 returns in his very own spin-off. The tin dog first appeared in 1977, on BBC’s Doctor Who, and more recently on the Sarah Jane Adventures. Slated for a half hour program for 26 episodes, K-9 gets a whole new look for the new show.
In April we will have the first new Red Dwarf in many years, and Dave TV has now posted the schedule. They are running the three new episodes one each night of Easter weekend, along with a selection of the best classic episodes and a behind-the-scenes special. SFX is in the middle of it, running 50 copies only with a special Red Dwarf cover that will be featured in the show. To find one, you need to hunt the newsstands in the UK. The DVD will be released on DVD on June 15th in England, but I have not found a US release date yet.
Yes, today is Red Nose Day, and people all over the UK are being funny for money. Even 10 Downing Street has its nose on, all for the good cause of raising money to fight poverty and bring relief to those who need it. Also known as Comic Relief (and brought to this country by the likes of Robin Williams and Whoopie Goldberg), this is also the biggest viewership night on BBC1 each year. The event usually includes a Doctor Who segment, this year they are doing a Sarah Jane Special (in case you were wondering why it was mentioned in a SciFi blog). So go get your Digital Red Nose and contribute what you can!
