Um … what?
“Ghostwriter” producer and writer Kermit Frazier revealed “Ghostwriter’s” true identity in a recent interview with The New York Times’ blog The Local.
“Ghostwriter was a runaway slave during the Civil War,” Frazier said. “He was killed by slave catchers and their dogs as he was teaching other runaway slaves how to read in the woods. His soul was kept in the book and released once Jamal [Sheldon Turnipseed] discovered the book.”
GET THE SALT
That’s the sexiest damn demon I’ve ever seen.
… Anyone else wanna use a Devil’s trap on him? Keep him there all night long. Haha!

Put an assumption in my ask. I’ll confirm or dispute it. I’m not gonna be mean or anything, I’m just very interested.
lol yea sure

This is my favorite sherlock gif of all time. And I keep waiting for someone to write a long tag that says all the things I’m thinking. How it’s both incredibly like and unlike Sherlock’s personality all at the same time…and that head tilt and those eyes…it’s genuine. And I love it.
OH NO. OH NOOOO.
Fuckin Neil Gaiman…son of a bitch.
Holmes and Watson with their good pals, Holmes and Watson.
didn’t JLM and jude law live together at some point
this Watson-switching disturbs me
They lived together. With Ewan McGregor.

2013 is a year where “big” science fiction properties are getting a lot of attention: There’s a new Star Trek movie. A much discussed and anticipated Star Wars movie is under development. And, most importantly, Doctor Who celebrates its 50th birthday. Yes, that’s right; I wrote “most importantly” because, when it comes down to it, Doctor Who is the best pop culture sci-fi around.
Sure, in terms of financial earnings or even just cultural awareness, Wars and Trek have the British time-travel series beat. Despite the show’s impressive growth with American audiences since its 2005 relaunch, most here would choose to fly in either the Millennium Falcon or the Enterprise over the TARDIS any day. But in terms of core concept, Doctor Who is filled with possibility in a way that few other science fictions can truly compare with.”

To celebrate the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who, BBC Books are reissuing eleven classic Doctor Who novels - one for each Doctor - from across their fiction range. Repackaged with new introductions and bold new covers, they’re not only a collectable set for fans, but a brilliant introduction to the depth and range of the Doctor Who fiction universe.
Titles include classic classic TV novel Remembrance of the Daleks, as well as original novels from Mark Gatiss, Terrance Dicks and Dan Abnett.
All eleven novels are available to buy now from Random House in paperback or ebook.
Ben Aaronovitch, Dan Abnett, Terrance Dicks and Gary Russell will be signing copies of their novels at Forbidden Planet in London, on Saturday 9 March. More details about the signings here (this link takes you to a site beyond our control).
Read the blurbs below, or see a gallery of the beautiful new 50th anniversary covers.
Ten Little Aliens
Deep in the heart of a hollowed-out moon the First Doctor finds a chilling secret: ten alien corpses, frozen in time at the moment of their death. They are the empire’s most wanted terrorists, and their discovery could end a war devastating the galaxy. But is the same force that killed them still lurking in the dark? And what are its plans for the people of Earth?
Dreams of Empire
On a barren asteroid, the once-mighty Haddron Empire is on the brink of collapse, torn apart by civil war. The one man who might have saved it languishes in prison, his enemies planning his death and his friends plotting his escape. The Second Doctor arrives as the last act of this deadly drama is being played out – and with both terrifying killers and cunning traitors to defeat, the future hangs in the balance.
Last of the Gaderene
The aerodrome in Culverton has new owners, and they promise an era of prosperity for the idyllic village. But former Spitfire pilot Alex Whistler is suspicious – when black-shirted troops appear on the streets, he contacts his old friend Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart at UNIT. The Third Doctor is sent to investigate – and soon uncovers a sinister plot to colonise the Earth. The Gaderene are on their way…
Festival of Death
The Beautiful Death is the ultimate theme-park ride: a sightseeing tour of the afterlife. But something has gone wrong, and when the Fourth Doctor arrives in the aftermath of the disaster, he is congratulated for saving the population from destruction – something he hasn’t actually done yet. He has no choice but to travel back in time and discover how he became a hero. And then he finds out. He did it by sacrificing his life.
Fear of the Dark
On a moon of the ruined planet Akoshemon, an age-old terror is about to be reborn. Something that remembers the spiral of war, pestilence and deprivation – and rejoices in it. The Fifth Doctor joins a team of archaeologists searching for evidence of the planet’s infamous past, and uncovers more than just ancient history. Forced to confront his own worst fears, even the Doctor will be pushed to breaking point – and beyond.
Arriving on the sun-baked veldt in the middle of the Boer War, the Sixth Doctor is soon involved in the adventures of struggling politician and war correspondent Winston Churchill. Of course, he knows Churchill is destined for great things, but unseen forces seem to be interfering with Winston’s historic career… The Doctor suspects the hidden hand of the Players, mysterious beings who regard human history as little more than a game. With time running out, can the Doctor find the right moves to defeat them?
Remembrance of the Daleks
With unfinished business to attend to, the Seventh Doctor returns to where it all began: Coal Hill School in London in 1963. Last time he was here, the Doctor left something behind – a powerful Time Lord artefact that could unlock the secrets of time travel. Can the Doctor retrieve it before two rival factions of Daleks track it down? And even if he can, how will the Doctor prevent the whole of London becoming a war zone as the Daleks meet in explosive confrontation?
Anji has just had the worst week of her life. She should be back at her desk, not travelling through time and space in a police box. The Eighth Doctor is supposed to be taking her home, so why are there dinosaurs outside? The Doctor doesn’t seem to know either, or else he surely would have mentioned the homicidal princesses, teen terrorists and mad robots? One thing is certain: Anji is never going to com- plain about Monday mornings in the office again.
Reports of a time disturbance lead the Ninth Doctor to modern-day London, where he discovers a Neanderthal Man, twenty-eight thousand years after his race became extinct. A trip back to the dawn of humanity only deepens the mystery: who are these strange humans from the far future now living in the distant past? The Doctor must learn the truth about the Osterberg experiment before history is changed forever.
Wilfred Mott is very happy: his granddaughter, Donna, is back home, catching up with family and gossiping about her journeys, and he has just discovered a new star and had it named after him. He takes the Tenth Doctor with him to the naming ceremony. But the Doctor soon discovers something else new, and worryingly bright, in the heavens – something that is heading for Earth. It’s an ancient force from the Dark Times. And it is very, very angry…
The Silent Stars Go By
The winter festival is approaching for the hardy colony of Morphans, but no one is in the mood to celebrate. They’re trying to build a new life on a cold new world, but each year gets harder and harder. It’s almost as if some dark force is working against them. Then three mysterious travelers arrive out of the midwinter night, one of them claiming to be a doctor. Are they bringing the gift of salvation or doom? And what else might be lurking out there, about to wake up?
Annddddd…..purchased. Well a few of them. I’ll wait on the rest.
We have someone here at work named Caesar.
And so I sent out an email asking people if he was okay
got the joke
jenna-louise coleman and matt smith at the doctor who series 7.2 screening, 15.3.13
Holy crap she’s adorable….
Wish she was American
I’m sorry but I’d like an American companion for a bit on NewWho.
Don’t hate me
Well I guess Jack kinda counts
I don’t know why
Maybe so I could feel like I’m in the Tardis a tiny bit more
I should’ve put this in the tags shouldnt I?
Eeeeee! But wait, there’s more:
“All I can say at this point is that because Veronica Mars, like Chuck, is a Warner Bros. [production], and because Warner Bros. has now opened that gate, I feel confident in being able to get the same results for a Chuck movie,” Levi tells EW, adding that he could imagine them using avenues other than Kickstarterfor fund-raising. “If Warner Bros. is game, I’ve got great ideas for what the movie would be that I’m very excited about.”
Am I the only Chuck fan that REALLY doesn’t want a Chuck movie? Maybe if Bryce wasn’t dead, dead and only tv dead then yes I’d watch but really….I’m okay with the end we got.

I know Man. It’s not cool. It’s the ides of March. Everyone needs to make jokes or else Caesar died for Nothing.
Favorite People ->Nicholas Hoult.
I didn’t choose the fandom life. The fandom life gripped me tight and rose me from perdition.
I didn’t choose the fandom life. The fandom life grabbed my hand and whispered, “Run”
I didn’t choose the fandom life. The fandom life told me to come to 221B if convenient and if inconvenient come anyway.
The fandom chooses the fan, Harry.
I… actually did choose the fandom life.
Biologists would have you call this thing an Armadillo-Girdled Lizard, Cordylus cataphractus, but I won’t be fooled. This is clearly a baby dragon. They also have this adorable habit of biting their own tails for no discernible reason. Which is adorable until you remember what the ouroboros is, and inevitably conclude that these things are also dark magic.
Magical dragons.It all makes sense.
