Warning: Contains some spoilers for the end of season 3. The BBC released some promo pics for the upcoming season of "Being Human." If you've been watching the series, you know that Mitchell is gone and Aiden Turner has left the show. Now a new vampire named Hal is moving in, played by Damien Molony.

"I'm actually playing an English vampire," said Molony. "Very, very posh. Very upper class. A stiff-upper-lipped Brit, which is a bit of a push for me accent, but it makes it a lot more fun. I promise you, no! No, no, no—Hal's not Mitchell 2. There's a lot of backstory to play with, and I assure you he's very, very different."

Do you think he'll be enough to replace Mitchell? "Being Human" returns in the U.K. later this month.

Mary Tamm passed away today at the age of 62 after an 18-month battle with cancer. Tamm played the Doctor's companion Romana, alongside Tom Baker. A phenomenal actress, she also had roles on Wire in the Blood, Eastenders, and many great live theatre productions, including Private Lives and Abigail's Party.

"On set and offstage, her earthy northern humour and self-deprecating wit brightened every occasion. She was a consummate actress, and immensely popular in the profession," said her husband, Marcus Ringrose. "We will all miss her."

Producer Rick McCallum talks about the challenges involved in making a "Star Wars" live action TV show. There's some good details revealed here. They have over 50 scripts completed, each an hour long. The show will take place between episodes three and four. The working title they have right now is "Star Wars: Underworld." Hopefully by the time they're able to actually produce the show, they'll have come up with something less generic.

Are you looking forward to this being on television in the next couple years? Or do you think this will turn out like the prequels?

Recaption

Fox has decided not to renew "Terra Nova" for a second season. While the series had some problems, it was definitely showing signs of improvement, and had an amazing series finale. Unfortunately, it didn't have the ratings to justify the expense of each episode.

This does not necessarily mean the series is over. 20th Century Fox TV, which produces the series, is shopping the show to other networks. Maybe it would do better in the hands of Syfy or AMC.

What do you think? Are you sad to see "Terra Nova" go? Would you continue to watch if it gets picked up somewhere else?
