Doctor Who (Saturday nights, 9pm, BBC America)
By Heather S. Vina

The BBC FINALLY released a real trailer for “The Day of the Doctor!” And not just one but TWO!

The first one is here, and then an extended one was released on Saturday.

There was also a teaser released starring Clara and Eleven. It pretty much tells me nothing, though, LOL!

The show also released four new promotional shots for the special.

And they released the official synopsis:

The Doctors embark on their greatest adventure in this 50th anniversary special. In 2013, something terrible is awakening in London’s National Gallery; in 1562, a murderous plot is afoot in Elizabethan England; and somewhere in space an ancient battle reaches its devastating conclusion. All of reality is at stake as the Doctor’s own dangerous past comes back to haunt him. Written by Steven Moffat, Directed by Nick Hurran.

Don’t forget that the 50th Anniversary special will air on November 23!

BBC America has announced their celebration plans for the show, with a week’s worth of Doctor Who scheduling!

Actor David Bradley gave an interview on playing William Hartnell in An Adventure In Space and Time.

BBC One has up a video of Peter Davison (Five) talking about his experience as the Doctor.

The BBC site has up a collection of videos and interviews from the Doctor Who 50th Anniversary Special.

Neil Gaiman (“The Doctor’s Wife”) is writing a Doctor Who ebook and The Guardian has up an excerpt from it.

Sci-fi Spoilerpalooza
By Heather S. Vina

Spoiler TV has up an article previewing Fox’s new show Almost Human.

TV Guide has an article up about Once Upon A Time: Wonderland‘s latest twist involving the Red Queen and the Knave of Hearts.

For those Sleepy Hollow fans who have been wondering when Ichabod will change his clothes, TV Line has an answer for you! Quite frankly, I love his duds. They totally work for his character. They need to keep them!

Tom Mison (Ichabod Crane) also has an interview up with The TV Addict site, in which he discusses pretty much everything!

For Arrow fans, TV Line has up an interview with Black Canary actress Caity Lotz on her character and the stunts involved with the role.

For those interested in The Tomorrow People, actress Madeline Mantock (Astrid) has an interview with The TV Addict at their site.

TV Guide also has up an article exploring what will happen now that Stephen might have revealed his powers to his human friend.

For fans of The Originals, there are several interviews up regarding the show, including the potential Elijah/Hayley romance, how Klaus will react to that, and what is going on with Rebekah and Marcelle. You can catch one over at E! Online, TV Line and The TV Addict.

The CW is producing a new superhero show called “Hourman.” It’s “a drama based on a DC Comics character who can see flashes of terrible things that will happen an hour in the future.”

Never heard of him.

Supernatural (Tuesday nights, 9pm, CW)
By Paula R. Stiles

Our review of 9.02, “Devil May Care,” will be up later this week (Yes, yes, I know I keep saying that. Bear with me). Tomorrow, Castiel returns in 9.06, “Heaven Can’t Wait.” There’s a CW promo, a synopsis, a sneak peek, and official photos up.

The last-minute CHCH promo for 9.05 came out shortly after press time last week. Expect one for 9.06 later today.

There’s also a new “Demons” promo up from the CW.

The title for 9.14 will be “Nowhere to Go But Down.” Nah, that’s not ominous or anything.

Sheriff Mills returns on November 26 (yep, Thanskgiving Week):

“Rock and a Hard Place” – (9:00-10:00 p.m. ET) (TV-14, DLV) (HDTV)

SAM AND DEAN REUNITE WITH SHERIFF MILLS — Sheriff Mills (guest star Kim Rhodes) calls Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) for help investigating multiple murders in her small town. Discovering all four victims belonged to the same church chastity group, Sam and Dean decide to infiltrate by joining the group themselves. When Dean disappears, Sam and Sheriff Mills realize whatever they are hunting has taken Dean too and team up to rescue him. John MacCarthy directed the episode written by Jenny Klein (908).

Think she’s gonna need an even bigger prayer circle than for the season eight finale to make it through this time. They seem determined to kill her off.

TV Guide has up some spoilers about Bartholomew. Seems he won’t be a nice guy and that his one-dimensional bad guy persona will continue. Yay.

According to EW, Tim Omundson of Psych has been cast as Cain for the episode, “First Born.”

Voting is up for the People’s Choice Awards. Vote early and often for the show.

Ratings dropped a bit for 9.05 to 0.9/2 and 2.15 million. Looks as though the combination of Charlie Sue in the previous week and a weird promo for 9.05 had a bad effect on the ratings for this week.

We’ll be back next week with more news, spoilers and blatantly unabashed self-promotion. Stay tuned and check out our reviews of Game of Thrones, Doctor Who, Torchwood, The Event, Once Upon a Time, Grimm and Supernatural.
