DOCTOR WHO: Steven Moffat Teases Maisie Williams’ Role

GAME OF THRONES’ Maisie Williams will have a high-profile guest spot between seasons: she’ll pop up on DOCTOR WHO.

“I think, once you see what she’s up to in the show, you’ll appreciate what a clever idea of [executive producer] Brian Minchin’s…who thought of Maisie for this part,” Steven Moffat told reporters during the DOCTOR WHO panel at the Television Critics Association tour. “And I think it’s a significant role. We are not throwing her away. You know, we are not just getting the star value and doing nothing with it. It’s a great part, and she’s terrific in it. But I would say it will develop in unexpected ways.”

And with that, Moffat also sought out to correct one misconception about Williams’ character: that she’s playing a character that has already been introduced.

“One thing I think is worth saying because it keeps coming up as an issue: she is not playing a returning character,” he said. “She is a brand new character. She’s not someone from the Doctor’s past — unless I’m lying.”

Who do you think Williams is playing?

Comments Off on LATE NIGHT: Seth Meyers Brings GAME OF THRONES’ Jon Snow to a Dinner Party

When someone’s life has essentially been one tragedy after another, perhaps they’re not the best person to tell stories at a dinner party. Seth Meyers learned that lesson the hard way when he brought GAME OF THRONES’ Jon Snow (played by GOT star Kit Harrington) to a “dinner party” on Monday night’s episode of LATE NIGHT WITH SETH MEYERS. And it was amazing.

Comments Off on Marisa’s Top 14 Shows of 2014

It was another great year for television, and to celebrate that, I made my list of the top shows in 2014.

As per usual, my annual disclaimer: I literally can’t watch every show, and so some shows that probably should be here (like TRANSPARENT) didn’t make the cut because I couldn’t catch up in time. (But on the bright side, I caught up on every show I name-checked last year as not being caught up on.)

So, these are my top shows of the year…
