Jodie Whittaker on Taking Over ‘Doctor Who’ and Why She Knows She’s Getting Equal Pay

Jodie Whittaker on Taking Over ‘Doctor Who’ and Why She Knows She’s Getting Equal Pay
There’s a new “Doctor” in town. That in itself isn’t surprising for fans of the cult franchise “Doctor Who”: Part of the mythology surrounding the series is that the Time Lord can regenerate, and so, over the course of the series’ 55-year, multi-season run, the character has been played by a dozen different actors.

But now, for the first time, a woman will be wielding the famous sonic screwdriver: “Broadchurch” star Jodie Whittaker.

When the new Doctor’s hood slowly dropped and Whittaker was revealed as the Time Lord on July 16, 2017, the world of sci-fi stood still for a moment,

Despite the excessive amount of rubber used on Wednesday’s American Horror Story: Apocalypse, no one in Outpost 3 was safe. Langdon began the hour by literally unseating Venable at the head table, because just like his hair, Langdon’s actions are layered. He explained that he’s deciding who’s worthy of relocating to the “sanctuary,” where the Cooperative means to “populate” the new world. The process of making these difficult decisions is apparently called “cooperating.” (Sorry for all the quotation marks, but everything out of Langdon’s mouth is so damn creepy, I feel like these words deserve a little sparkle.

Spoiler Alert: Do not read if you have not yet watched the second season finale of “The Sinner” on USA.

The second season of “The Sinner” revealed the motives behind young murderer Julian’s (Elisha Henig) crime well ahead of its second season finale, so what became most important about wrapping up the anthology story was unraveling the truth of the secrets behind the inciting incident of his double homicide.

“We have to move into the full feelings around our traumas if we ever want to move past them. Compartmentalizing them is what creates havoc and imbalance,” showrunner Derek Simonds tells Variety.

‘The Sinner’ Boss on the Finale’s Horrifying Daddy Issues, Julian’s Fateful Decision, and Ambrose’s Dark Urges

‘The Sinner’ Boss on the Finale’s Horrifying Daddy Issues, Julian’s Fateful Decision, and Ambrose’s Dark Urges
[Editor’s Note: The following contains spoilers for the Season 2 finale of “The Sinner.”]

This season of “The Sinner” began with a boy murdering two people who appeared to be his parents and then concluded by upending the picture-perfect image of a man who was supposed to be a model father. The challenges of parenting, the hopes a parent has for their offspring, and the ways in which children could be damaged by those who raise them all came to a head in the finale, which exposed a few more secrets while still leaving some lingering questions.

Perhaps the most horrifying revelations, however, involved Marin (Hannah Gross), whom last we saw dead from a gunshot wound on the grounds of the First Nations reservation. It turns out that she had met up with Jack (Tracy Letts), the father of her former best friend and cop Heather (Natalie Paul). An argument and struggle ensued, and her gun went off, accidentally killing her.

The Five Best Christian Slater Movie Roles of the 80s

Christian Slater has definitely been known as a heartthrob in the 80s and even into the 90s, but that’s kind of where his star started to dim a bit since by the late 90s he was seen less and less on the big screen and a lot more in bit parts and on TV movies that never really went anywhere. He’s made an astounding comeback in the last several years if you’ve been watching and has managed to regain his star status, but his time in the 80s was something that was both building to the crescendo that was the
