The British miniseries The Night Manager, likely to be nominated for everything, worked like one long movie—beautifully shot, subtly acted (especially for a spy/action thriller) and well-directed.

There are a number of reasons the latest James Bond movie has been buzzed about: the return of director Sam Mendes, the speculation whether Daniel Craig will continue to portray Bond, the death of Judy Dench’s M in Skyfall, and the further establishment of Naomie Harris as Moneypenny and Ben Wishaw as Q.

A letter from James Bond creator Ian Fleming is due to be auctioned off in the coming weeks. It reveals that while yes, Pussy Galore was a lesbian, she just needed a proper man to come along and fuck it out of her.

There is so much going on with Idris Elba lately, and that's a very good thing, because now we finally have an excuse to post this photo and stare at it for awhile.
Time Lord #5 has recently given an interview saying the Doctor should never be a woman, which is a bit confusing. Prior to Peter Capaldi being named the 12th Doctor, there was a huge, raging, nasty debate about whether or not 12 should mark a change in the 50-year run of white dudes playing the time- and…
