Ghosts of Yesteryear

First off, before we enter SPOILER terrority, can I just remind you that a certain Miss Yasmin Paige was on our television screens this fine October evening? She was part of ITV's Murderland, starring alongside Hagrid himself Robbie Coltrane (or Fitz Cracker, if you'd much prefer...) in a murder mystery told through three very different perspectives...

YASMIN PAIGE AS THE MUCH MISSED (?) MARIA JACKSON

You can catch episode one of the three part mini-series on ITVPlayer now.

The 18 year old has also recently been cast in a feature film! It's called Submarine, and it's the directorial debut of Richard Ayoade. According to IMDB it's:

A comedy which follows a 15-year-old boy with two objectives: To lose his virginity before his next birthday, and to stop his mother from leaving his father for her dance teacher.

No idea when/if this'll hit cinema screens.

Now, onto the SPOILERS!

Beware, they are pretty heavy SPOILERS - regarding plot elements from this week's The Mad Woman in the Attic. Sure you want to read on...?

Well, who am I to stop you, hmmm?

Highlight to read:

During part two of The Mad Woman In The Attic, we get treated to a flashback featuring the Third and Fourth Doctors as played by Jon Pertwee and Tom Baker respectively. The clips shown include The Time Warrior, Planet of the Spiders, The Hand of Fear and The Five Doctors. Not only that but we glimpse Sarah Jane's future too with the ominous phrase, "He is returning, he is coming back" and a clip of the TARDIS materialising in the Bannerman Road attic. Towards the end of the episode there's another flash forward (not the 'Next Time' I hasten to add) where we witness The Tenth Doctor, as played by David Tennant. Not enough nostalgia for you? Well, that little robot mutt K9 is back too - this time for good (so they say). And looks like Mr Smith is none too pleased...

Remember!! The Mad Woman in the Attic airs Thursday and Friday on BBC One, from 4:35pm.
