We visited “Doctor Who” composer Murray Gold in his New York studio to discuss his work on the series since it was relaunched in 2005 under producer Russel T. Davies and Doctor Christopher Eccleston. Gold has since worked on every season of the show, changing the music to fit the personalities of each new Doctor.
The Nightjar launches internationally on iOS
Previously available only in the UK, the multi award winning mobile game The Nightjar has finally become available internationally via iTunes. The sci-fi horror tinged video game sees the player navigating the corridors of a dying spaceship, relying purely on the verbal instructions fed to them by the mysterious Dickie, played by Benedict Cumberbatch. The image above shows Benedict recording his performance for the game in March 2011.
The original release of the game had more than 100,000 downloads, won FWA, Cannes Lions, D&AD, BIMA and Lovie awards, and was nominated for two BAFTA Games awards.
The game is available for purchase worldwide from iTunes for devices running iOS 5 upwards.
There are currently no plans for Android or Windows Phone releases.
Visit the Nightjar website and follow the game Twitter account for updates, especially as we’ve been told an exclusive competition to win Nightjar posters signed by Benedict Cumberbatch is coming soon!
David Tennant is to return to the Royal Shakespeare Company to play Richard II, five years after audiences and critics hailed his performance as Hamlet.
The production headed by the former Doctor Who star leads off a winter season at the RSC that includes the world premiere of the stage adaptations of Hilary Mantel’s Wolf Hall and Bring up the Bodies.
Doran said the part would be a “challenge” for Tennant. “Of course Hamlet was a challenge, it’s the Everest,” he said: “Richard II is written entirely in verse. He has no problem with verse. He breathes it, he makes it sound as if it is completely effortless.”
The artistic director said the principal challenge for Tennant’s Richard II will be “the sense of the man’s volatility, fragility; that psychology is more alien to David’s character”
