Danny may not be everyone's cup of tea but the fact he has become a popular figure in one of the country's biggest soaps, has shown that his style can crack the mainstream. So, what better way of rewarding his acting renaissance than by handing him THE most iconic role in British TV?
In the third edition of Into It, we're discussing the recent SAG Awards, which saw a staggering number of celebrities using their platforms to speak out amid the current political climate, and debating whether awards ceremonies are really the place for such statements.
For years now, Dinklage has managed to maintain his enviable position of being the single best reason to watch Game of Thrones. The idea of him piloting the TARDIS fills me with nothing but joy, even though I'm a sufficiently die-hard fan to approach any change in my beloved show with a mixture of suspicion and fear.
*I should preface this by saying that a light-year is not actually a measurement of time but actually a measurement of distance. More specifically, h...
Catherine's songs still have that uncanny quality of sounding, on first listen, like something you've already known and loved for some time but - like many songwriters - she's reluctant to describe her process.
Although the Doctor appears to have a remarkable intellect, the Doctor does show a number of very human failings which might actually remind you of a certain sub-species of human. The Doctor can be grumpy, sulky, indecisive, engage in risky behaviours which place both him and his companions in danger as well as having quite an extreme sense of fashion.
The Doctor Who Symphonic Spectacular was a visual and auditory wonder. Live monsters from the show roamed the stage and the aisles as the BBC National Orchestra of Wales and the BBC National Choir of Wales delighted fans with music from this cult TV programme.
We are currently in the midst of the barren lands where a series has finished some months ago and the next instalments will not be coming in to view on the horizon until the Autumn. So how does a Whovian get their fix until then? The answer has arrived in the shape of an award-winning musical...
These days I've become increasingly bored of television formats and much prefer the company of my laptop, the neighbours cat (who wanders through my conservatory in a daily escape bid from captivity) and a mug of beef tea.
For most of this latest series, I was bored, and I know I'm not alone. The acting and directing have been excellent, the writing so far as dialogue and pacing has also been quite good, but the show has felt like it's becoming a bit old hat.
Your Home In Their Hands has the strutting, pouting, preening Celia Sawyer as its host. Hostess might be more to the point as on first appearance, she looks as if she might show you to your table in a Las Vegas strip club.
Up North the Scottish independence referendum is hitting the final straight, with postal voters already casting their decisions. What should in all likelihood have been a 16 percentage point win for the No side looks a lot less certain now.
Doctor Puppet is a series of stop motion animated shorts featuring characters and concepts from the sci-fi series ... "We are working on episode 6 and it will premiere at the end of August. We're actually doing something really different and exciting".
Like all sane people, I try to draw all my life lessons from Doctor Who. In an episode last year, the Eighth Doctor (that'll be Paul McGann) is told ...
I was pretty pleased to finish my shed, manage the house and even work the washing machine efficiently while Mum had a brief stay in hospital. It may seem a bit soulless, but at least she had a clean, tidy, neat and ordered home to return to when the time came. Aspergers has its advantages.
Last week we heard that BBC Director General Tony Hall was expected to axe either BBC3 or BBC4. And now we discover that it's BBC3 that's got the chop.
