First look at the BBC's His Dark Materials

We have our first look at the BBC's Dark Materials! Phillip Pullman's His Dark Materials is an amazing series of Urban Fantasy. In 2007 we received our first screen adaptation in the American movie The Golden Compass. Like many, I rushed to the cinemas only to come away disappointed.

Now, it's the BBC's turn.

Hold me; I'm giddy.

This week, the BBC gave us our first sneak peak of what we're in store for, and while it doesn't show us much, it's promising.

No season of Doctor Who in 2019

The BBC has announced there won't be a 2019 season of Doctor Who, but we will get a New Year's special on 1 Jan (instead of the more traditional Christmas Special) and the series will return in 2020.

This news, while disappointing, isn't a surprise. There had been talk the new writing team didn't feel they could do the show justice while still churning out a full season each year, and even rumors they (and Jodie Whittaker, could depart).

I think this year's season has been excellent; episode one was a little shaky for me, but since then it seems to have gone from strength to strength, and I love Whittaker in the role of Doctor. It's going to be a long wait, but I'm confident the 2020 season will be worth it.

Update: we’ve also been gifted with a trailer for the New Year’s special.
