An actor has been chosen to take on the role of Mace Tyrell, father to Margaery Tyrell (Natalie Dormer) and the Knight of Flowers, Ser Loras Tyrell (Finn Jones), and son to the Queen of Thorns, Olenna Tyrell (Diana Rigg), in season four of HBO’s Game of Thrones.
George R.R. Martin, the author of the books the show is based on, announced on his blog recently that Roger Ashton-Griffiths has been cast as Mace.
The latest Doctor Who begins in Victorian Yorkshire, as a mysterious plot is underway by the strangely obsessed Winifried Gillyflower (Diana Rigg) that many be connected to odd deaths that have become known as The Crimson Horror. Madame Vastra (Neve McIntosh), Jenny Flint (Catrin Stewart), and Strax (Dan Starkey) are called upon to investigate the mystery, only to find that the Doctor (Matt Smith) and Clara (Jenna-Louise Coleman) are somehow involved.
During TARDISblend 64, we take a look at what is probably the first "split plot" for Doctor Who, with the first half being Doctor-Lite, and the other not so much. We also discuss the interesting presentation of the flashback sequences in this episode, and begin highlighting some of the references to Classic Doctor Who through this season.
Later, we continue talking some of the strange rumors associated with the 50th Anniversary, including one spoilerific rumor that if it becomes true, Greg says he will continue the TARDISblend after the 50th Anniversary!
We’ve got a couple of hot cover previews for you courtesy of BOOM! Studios.

Steed and Mrs. Peel #10 features John Steed and Emma Peel facing their deadliest adversary, The Cybernauts, as well as a bunch of other British craziness. And probably somebody drinks some tea. Take a look at the covers below and make sure you pick up the issue in June.
Many new faces will be joining the cast of HBO’s hit series, Game of Thrones, for its third season (which makes me quite nervous for the well-being of the familiar faces of the show), including Diana Rigg (The Avengers , The Great Muppet Caper), as Olenna Tyrell, the Queen of Thorns, Mackenzie Crook (Pirates of the Caribbean, The Office) as Orell, and Thomas Brodie-Sangster (Love Actually, Nanny McPhee) as Jojen Reed.
During the panel for Game of Thrones at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, a video was shown to introduce the 14 new actors joining the cast, as well as who from George R.R. Martin‘s books they’ll be playing.
