20:00 - Doctor Who - Season 9 - MyFanbase Interview with Jenna Coleman & Peter Capaldi
We left Season 8 with quite a bit of change for all the characters; how do Clara and the Doctor move into Season 9 emotionally and in relation to each other?
JC: They're diving into it.
PC: I think they're diving into it. They're sort of like a little gang. The Doctor has sort of realised, that even at 2.000 years of age life is short and he's very blessed to not only have access to this amazing toy-box that the TARDIS is, but he has this wonderful friend in Clara and I think he's just embracing the whole idea of the pair of them ranging through time and space having a good time. Which means being very adventurous and throwing themselves into the path of danger rather recklessly. They become adrenaline junkies somehow.
JC: Yeah, they become more similar, I think. Whereas last season the Doctor was the more reckless one and Clara was the kind of responsible one bringing him back from teetering over the edge. Whereas now, she's kind of egging him on, joining him, to jump off the cliff with him. So when you got two characters like that, the risks become more heightened. There's more of a sense of freedom, they found their footing together, Clara just wants to be space-bound now, the ties to earth have gone and her perspective has changed. She just wants to seize the moment and live TARDIS-life to the max.
20:00 - Nashville - Season 4 - Interview with TVLine on the new Season
Thanks to Brazil for the heads up.
TVLINE | What’s up with Gunnar and Scarlett? She was about to move in with Dr. Caleb, but she also almost kissed Gunnar at the end of the episode.
That’s a tricky one too. They’ve embarked on this duo that they’re committed to now. It was a little bit of a Pandora’s box up there on the roof, given the givens… Where we left [them], they were going to go on tour. It’s a real problem in terms of whether or not that box gets closed or whether it’s going to ruin a good thing.
TVLINE | On a related note, will Will’s coming out be as rough as he feared on his career?
It’s a real journey. [The press conference] was the first gigantic step, and now there’s 999 more to get where he needs to go… It’s safe to say that he meant everything he said in that moment, and then, of course, then afterwards you’re going, “Oh gosh, should I have done that?” When we come back, he’s been hibernating a little bit. The question is: When he comes out of hibernation, where does he fit in?
TVLINE | Talk to me about Layla. Will she be more center stage, now that Aubrey Peeples is a series regular?
[As] we come into the season, she and Jeff have a new understanding… Their unique love, is on the table, and they are poised to kind of try to see how that works as a couple. But the manager/client relationship is a tricky one, and one of the things we’re really focusing on, in terms of our general storytelling this season, is public perception versus what’s really happening, and how different those things can be.
