"How to Catch a Monster" - Title Change ("Lost River") and Cannes Screening

Ryan Gosling's long-awaited directorial debut, "How to Catch a Monster" starring Matt Smith, has had a recent title change.  The film is now called "Lost River" and it is under this new title that it has been entered in the Un Certain Regard section at Cannes Film Festival.

The Un Certain Regard prize was introduced in 1998 to recognise young talent and encourage innovative and daring works.  The section usually presents "original and different" works which seek international recognition.

The Cannes Film Festival runs from 14-25 May 2014.  There is no word yet on whether Matt Smith will be attending the festival.

Ben Miller to Guest Star as new Villain

Ben Miller is to guest star in Season 8 as a villain in the Mark Gatiss episode.  The press release reads:
Ben Miller is set to guest star opposite Peter Capaldi when the new series of Doctor Who returns this autumn. 
Commenting on his role, Ben Miller said: "As a committed Whovian I cannot believe my luck in joining the Twelfth Doctor for one of his inaugural adventures. My only worry is that they'll make me leave the set when I'm not filming."
Miller achieved fame as half of comedy duo Armstrong and Miller before success in dramas, including Primeval and more recently, as DI Richard Poole, the central character in the first two series of the BBC’s Death in Paradise. 
Miller’s partner in comedy, Alexander Armstrong, appeared in Doctor Who’s 2011 Christmas Special, playing Reg Arwell, but it’s Miller’s first time on the show and he’ll be starring in an episode written by Mark Gatiss. 
Steven Moffat, lead writer and executive producer, added: “Mark Gatiss has written us a storming villain for his new episode, and with Capaldi in the TARDIS, we knew we needed somebody special to send everybody behind the sofa. And quite frankly, it's about time Ben Miller was in Doctor Who!” 
Other familiar faces confirmed to join Peter Capaldi and Jenna Coleman in the new series, which will tramsit later this year, include Tom Riley and Keeley Hawes.

Video - Peter Capaldi and Young Fan - Cuteness Overload

It seems that one of the main prerequisites for the casting of the Doctor is that the actor concerned must be good with children.  As we know, Matt Smith is a superb example of how the actor portraying the Doctor should interact with children.  Well, judging by a recent video uploaded by Amber Howell, Peter Capaldi has this certain trait too.  Not only, when asked, did he sign this young chap's shirt...but he also drew a Dalek on it too:

Adorable...just adorable.
