“Green Arrow” character pic online

Remember how the CW were going to transition from their long-running “Smallville” series to a another show featuring a member of the Justice League – Green Arrow?


That’ll be Stephen Amell as Oliver Queen, privileged billionaire turned bow-wielding enemy of crime.  The suit looks pretty faithful and Amell appears to be rocking a goatee – I say ‘appears’ as whoever agreed on the promo picture appears to be under the impression that our first impression of t’Arrow should be murky and difficult to make out properly – won’t somebody pay the electric bill in that photography studio?

No news yet on a full season pick-up – though if the CW have any sense, they’ll get this one on air to grab some of the DC crowd who were so loyal to the adventures of Clark Kent.

Jenna-Louise Coleman gets key to the TARDIS


Oh, that Moffat.

Leave it to him to wrong-foot fans and professional observers alike by casting British actress Jenna-Louise Coleman as Matt Smith’s new TARDIS flatmate and not the much gossiped-about Sophia Myles.

She’s familiar to fans of British soap “Emmerdale”, had a brief gig on “Boston Legal” and showed up again on UK school drama “Waterloo Road”.  She’ll be seen next in the Julian Fellowes-penned “Titanic” TV drama which begins to air in the UK this weekend.


You can see an interview with her at YouTube here and expect to see her first time running down corridors in the company of a lanky gent this Christmas in the annual “Who” special.
