I’ve decided that I deserve to buy 1 or 3 items this year at SDCC. After seeing what BBC America is bringing it looks like I’ll have to bring some extra cash for my Sherlock, Doctor Who and Orphan Black love!! I can get a Red Dalek (heck my name is Cherry) or wear my fandom with a t-shirt! So many great choices! Here are the items that I want to bring home ….

 I must admit to a major weakness for Daleks and Cybermen despite dreaming of being a Doctor or at the least a companion! I wonder if they will have anything with my personal favorite ‘Martha Jones’! Since it’s the final season of Orphan Black am thinking will pick up a Funko of one of the girls!

 

What would you pick up from the booth?

Get excited!

Join BBC.com Culture on Friday, July 22nd at San Diego Comic-Con to view a discussion the long brewing topic of “Are Heroes Born or Made?” The panel will be between those more than qualified to speak on the subject. This includes the writing pair, Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely (Captain America: Civil War, Avengers: Infinity War), Industrial Light & Magic visual effects art director Aaron McBride (The Avengers, Jurassic World), and comic writer Christopher James Priest (Black Panther, Batman). They’ll all dive deep into the root of the subject of who’s the better here? Is it the one who had no choice but to be a hero or the one who chose to be great?

 BBC AMERICA’s Doctor Who spin-off series Class

image003I’m just joking Dr. Who doesn’t have any kids yet (that I know of) but we are getting a new spinoff called ‘Class’. They don’t get their own Blue (Police) Box but instead our at Coal Hill School navigating teen angst and the end of the world! The cast will include

“An Unearthly Child”, Doctor Who (William Hartnell) bulletin board Coal Hill School from

Greg Austin, Fady Elsayed, Sophie Hopkins and Vivian Oparah and Katherine Kelly will be the teacher in charge of the kids and maybe the school? I’m curious as a cat and am excited about this new series. I’d always hoped for more Time Lords … or maybe Time Ladies but it’s always exciting to see new adventures in the universe.  We don’t have all the details but we do know that the four students will be dealing with major issues as they hide out from enemies as well as dealing with being on a new planet and of course homework (eek), friends, parents and hormones! The Coal Hill School has been part of the Doctor Who universe since time immortal but it’s not the safe haven your high school may have been. This school is smack dab in the middle of trouble with a capital ‘T’ from all the time travel the walls have become thin and a bit malleable so the big bad wolf is scratching at the door trying to blow this school house down. The shadow is hell bent on killing everyone and everything and all that’s standing between total annihilation our four kids and their teacher! I hope they are up to the challenge of fighting the Shadow alone .. or will we get a few visits from a special guy with a sonic screwdriver! I’m excited that the YA series will take place in contemporary London and is supposed to be a bit scary and funny. It’s a peak into the Screen Shot 2016-04-04 at 10.48.23 PMWhoniverse that none of us have seen and should be quite the ride since it sounds as if it’s going to appeal to be geared towards teen and adult fans so it won’t be for small kids like the Sarah Jane Adventures (which I did enjoy). I have my fingers Screen Shot 2016-04-04 at 10.51.41 PMcrossed that we might get a K-9 to help out with the adventures! 

Patrick Ness the award-winning YA writer is helming the new series ‘Class’ and said “We searched far and wide for this amazing cast, fantastic actors who understand what we’re aiming for with this show. And how lucky we are to get Katherine Kelly! She’s been stunning in Happy ValleyThe Night Manager and Mr Selfridge, just wait until you see her here.”

 

Steven Moffat, Class and Doctor Who executive producer, says: “There’s nothing more exciting than meeting stars that nobody’s heard of yet. We had the read through of the first few episodes last week, and there was a whole row of them. Coal Hill School has been part of Doctor Who since the very first shoot in 1963, but this new show is anything but history. Class is dark and sexy and right now. I’ve always wondered if there could be a British Buffy – it’s taken the brilliant Patrick Ness to figure out how to make it happen.”

From Writer Patrick Ness, Director Ed Bazalgette (PoldarkDoctor Who), Producer Derek Ritchie, and Executive Producers Patrick Ness, Steven Moffat and Brian Minchin, the BBC Cymru Wales production, co-produced with BBC AMERICA and BBC Worldwide, starts filming today. The series will air on BBC Three in the UK.

It’s Barnes and Nobles Free Fridays with ebook, app AND videos!  Thanks B&N for this special October 10th treat with extra videos and DC Comics Fall TV series in honor of New York Comic Con! I have to say that The Flash first episode was well done just the right amount of backstory (for newbies) and action for fans of the genre.  I’m finding Gotham to be a bit boring! It might be that you never get a chance to miss Batman (I just can’t escape the character from animated series to movies he’s freaking everywhere on 24 hours!). Arrow looks like it’s returning to the heart stopping great action from the first season after veering off into a love story (blech). Constantine is still a mystery for me even after interviewing the cast (youtube) at SDCC don’t know much about the series.

Free Fridays: The Cutting Edge, Rio 2 Sky Soccer, The Paradise

FREE FRIDAY BOOK

October 10, 2014: Today’s Free Fridays book selection is THE CUTTING EDGE — a suspenseful, thrilling novel filled with hope, and featuring an unforgettable heroine.

But before she can step into the spotlight, Leslie is assaulted by a drug gang and disfigured with a broken scotch bottle. Without her perfect face, she is lost — and no amount of surgery can ever make her what she once was.

Now trying to hide her face from the world, Leslie encounters more trouble as she seeks to rebuild her life: unrequited love, thoughts of suicide, and her assailant out to finish the job. Little does she know that a young girl named Angel will turn it all around, showing Leslie the joy and potential in life and the fact that love truly is blind.

Free Fridays: Beneath a Navajo Moon + The Shoemaker and the Elves + Intruders

FREE FRIDAY BOOK

September 5, 2014: Today’s Free Fridays book selection is BENEATH A NAVAJO MOON— a compelling novel of love, crime and tradition set against the iconic Navajo landscape.

Overview

What happens when danger and love collide under a Navajo moon? The search for a woman who disappeared in 1906 has lead cultural anthropologist Erin Dawson to Cedar Canyon, where the iconic terrain of red rock walls and mesas keep Navajo traditions — and maybe criminal evidence — well hidden.

When Erin’s search leads her to cross paths with tribal policeman Adam Silverhorn, it’s hardly love at first sight. But everywhere she turns, Adam is already there. Fighting their feelings for each other, the two are suddenly thrust into a battle far more dangerous — a common quest to rout an insidious drug cartel that has spawned the recent rise in gang violence on the reservation. Adam’s position of authority gives Erin a rare glimpse into Navajo life few outsiders like her ever see — and into a crime ring that no one dares to imagine.

As danger mounts, Adam and Erin begin to wonder if they will live to tell how they really feel.

FREE FRIDAY APP

September 5,  2014: Today’s Free Fridays app selection is  – the magical children’s tale brought to life with 20 pages full of interactive elements, original illustrations, narration, sound effects, and music!

Based on Michael Marshall Smith’s 2007 novel and written by Glen Morgan,INTRUDERS is a paranormal thriller about a secret society devoted to chasing immortality by seeking refuge in the bodies of others. Ex-cop Jack Whalen has escaped a dark, violent past for a seemingly quiet life with his wife, Amy. When she goes missing, Jack starts an investigation that forces him to confront his past.

FREE FRIDAYS AUTHOR RECOMMENDATION

Lisa Carter, the author of this week’s Free Fridays book selection, recommends ANGEL FALLSby Connie Mann:

“Connie Mann renders a vivid portrayal of the plight of street kids in exotic Brazil in a captivating adventure chock full of romantic tension, physical survival and emotional conflict. As the director of a Brazilian orphanage and an ex-Army Ranger team to save the life of one small child, they struggle to overcome their dark and broken pasts. The characters are riveting and complex. The non-stop, action-packed, page-turning suspense will grip readers until the heart-pounding conclusion.”
