Christopher Eccleston Says It's Time For Doctor Who To Stop Being Such A 'Boys' Club'
Former Doctor Who star Christopher Eccleston has called for change behind the scenes of the hit sci-fi series, which he has branded a “bit of a boys’ club”.Christopher played the Ninth Doctor when the long-running show was rebooted in 2005, with David Tennant, Matt Smith, Peter Capaldi and Jodie Whittaker taking over as the Time Lord in subsequent series.In a new interview with Doctor Who’s companion magazine, the actor said that while he welcomed the arrival of the first female Doctor, he thinks it’s important to “take that further in the way we look at history” and “look at it through a female lens”.After suggesting a storyline in which the Doctor meets suffragettes, Christopher said (via Digital Spy): “It’s great that we now have a female Doctor, and I think we should take that further in the way we look at history. Look at it through a female lens.“Russell T Davies writes the Doctor as one Doctor; Steven Moffat writes him as another; Rob Shearman writes him, he’s another. Bit of a boys’ club, though. We need to address that.” He continued: “We need female writers. It needs to be addressed, particularly as the Doctor has such a pronounced, for want of a better phrase, feminine side, and such an enthusiastic engagement with the female.”In the same interview, Christopher also expressed his opinion that Doctor Who should introduce a Cyberwoman character in a future episode.After stepping down from Doctor Who, Christopher turned down the opportunity to reprise his role in a 2013 anniversary special, which saw his successors David Tennant and Matt Smith coming face to face on screen.He later claimed he was “blacklisted” by the BBC over his decision to quit the show, and vowed never to work with Russell T Davies again.Christopher has since said that he took legal action against the BBC following his exit, after they put out a statement announcing his departure which he hadn’t signed off on.Last year, Christopher surprised many fans when it was revealed he’d be reprising his role as the Ninth Doctor for the first time, in a new audio series.Jodie Whittaker has played the Doctor since 2017, but it’s been widely rumoured she’ll be leaving the show after the forthcoming 13th series, though neither she nor the BBC has yet confirmed whether this is the case.READ MORE:The BBC Does Little To Quash Those Rumours Jodie Whittaker Is Leaving Doctor WhoChristopher Eccleston Returns To The Doctor Who Franchise For The First Time In 15 YearsBig New Star Joins Doctor Who In A Casting That Not Even The Doctor Saw Coming

Army of the Dead review – Zack Snyder’s zombie splatterfest is a wit-free zone
A muscle-bound crew of mercenaries infiltrate a Las Vegas full of zombies in Snyder’s uninspired Netflix horror-thrillerZombies. They grunt. They lurch inelegantly through dystopian ruined streets, sometimes breaking into an athletic sprint. They stare sightlessly ahead, often with irises that glitter in the post-apocalyptic sunset with some nameless infection. Sometimes they shriek through hideously distorted mouths from which the flesh has already been half-eaten away, as they are blasted with a shotgun. They provide metaphors for consumerism and conformism, and they also furnish a low-budget horror launching pad for ambitious young directors. But zombies are often just boring: yucky and indistinguishable horror-vermin whose gruesome killing, in each case, is a dramatically uninteresting non-moment, and all too often humourless (although an honourable exception is Edgar Wright’s Shaun of the Dead).And so it proves in this very long, very violent, video-game type horror-thriller from Zack Snyder. The premise is that, in a future-world in which a zombie outbreak has been contained by herding the shambling undead into a wrecked Las Vegas and walling them in, a tough Dirty Dozen-type crew is hired by a shadowy Vegas hotel owner (Hiroyuki Sanada) to bust into the city and retrieve the billions of dollars languishing in his hotel safe. The zombie slayers are led by man-mountain Scott (Dave Bautista), who is quaintly yearning for a non-mercenary retirement selling lobster rolls in his food truck, and include Vanderohe (Omari Hardwick), Cruz (Ana De La Reguera), Lily (Nora Arnezeder) and Scott’s sensitive daughter Kate (Ella Purnell), who is still hurting from a tough decision that Scott had to make when Kate’s mum was bitten by a zombie.

Rising food costs are causing global hunger while the rich are getting richer | Arwa Mahdawi
The rich are now nearly 40% richer than before the coronavirus crisis. Meanwhile, food prices rise, and more and more people go hungryIs food made out of gold now? Because it’s starting to seem that way. Every time I go to my (extremely not fancy) local New York supermarket I am shocked at how expensive groceries have become. Prices seem to jump every month – in fact, food prices are up 3.5% compared with last spring, according to the US Department of Agriculture. While that might not sound extreme, it adds up. And it’s going to keep going. “People will have to get used to paying more for food,” a food distribution expert told Bloomberg recently. “It’s only going to get worse.”The US, of course, isn’t the only place where filling your belly is starting to cost an arm and a leg. Food prices are rocketing globally, driving millions into hunger. In Nigeria, food inflation rose to 22.95% in March. In Indonesia, tofu is now 30% more expensive than it was last year. In Lebanon, where nearly half the population lives in poverty, food is about five times as expensive as it was in 2019. In Russia, food prices rose 7.7% over the last year. In the UK, the pandemic has increased food insecurity; as many as 10% of people now use food banks. Continue reading...

Johnson the civil libertarian wants to have his voter ID card and eat it | Marina Hyde
The solution to the virtually nonexistent problem of voter fraud just happens to be one that favours the Tories“If I am ever asked,” Boris Johnson once wrote of ID cards, “on the streets of London, or in any other venue, public or private, to produce my ID card as evidence that I am who I say I am, when I have done nothing wrong and am simply ambling along and breathing God’s fresh air like any other freeborn Englishman, then I will take that card out of my wallet and physically eat it in the presence of whatever emanation of the state has demanded I produce it.” Righto. Well, in a plot twist worthy of Dial-A-Plot-Twist, the emanation of the state turns out to be Boris Johnson himself. Yes, despite the warnings and objections of civil liberties campaigners and race equality campaigners – indeed, despite in-person voter fraud being effectively nonexistent in the UK - Johnson’s government is pushing ahead with legislation to introduce mandatory voter ID at elections. We know these plans are illiberal because the traditional hero of a Boris Johnson column – namely, Boris Johnson – has already opposed them. Continue reading...
