DOCTOR WHO Bringing a 3-Parter in Series 10, and More TV News

Take a breather from whatever you’re doing–it’s TV-Cap time! Today’s roundup of the latest and greatest in television news has information about a three-parter in the next series of Doctor Who, trailers for season three of Fargo, some Captain Planet fun, and more.

Going Long. The Monks appeared in the trailer for series 10 of Doctor Who, premiering on BBC America on April 15, and it turns out they’ll be in a key arc. Show writer Toby Whithouse told Digital Spy they’ll be in a three-parter in the upcoming series, episodes six through eight, to be exact. Whithouse, Steven Moffat, and Peter Harness each wrote one of the three episodes. We don’t have three-parters often in Doctor Who, and it’s interesting that different writers are working on the arc. Get more information on the history of multi-episode arcs from Kyle Anderson here at Nerdist.

Cut Off One Head… Because you can’t keep an evil organization down in a fictional setting, Hydra is coming back to Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (The group is returning in Framework, so it’s a loophole.) We get to see a look at how Hydra has taken over in the context of the virtual world, and we get some rad promotional Hydra propaganda posters because of it. You can see a couple above and a whole gallery of them at Facebook. [CBR, Images: ABC]

Music and Possibilities. Speaking of Marvel, let’s jump over to Netflix and touch on a couple of Iron Fist topics. First of all, thanks to CBR for a the heads-up that the soundtrack for the Netflix series is available for purchase on iTunes. Secondly, can you imagine what Iron Fist would have been like with someone other than Finn Jones in the lead? Specifically, with an Asian American actor in the lead? I’m sure it’s crossed your mind. Lewis Tan was in the running (he played Zhou Cheng in an episode of the series instead), and Vulture has an interview with him about the audition process and more. Read it here.

Meet the Presidents. History is working on a new anthology series that will focus on seeing United States history through the eyes of its presidents. The Commanders would feature the likes of Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt, and more and would bring a different perspective to key events in country’s history. Learn more at Entertainment Weekly.

Introductions and a Hint. FX’s Fargo is coming back with season three on April 19. A few short (as in 15-30 seconds) teasers have been dropping in preparation for the new episodes. Separately, they’re brief glimpses into the world. But put them together and you might find some clues. The latest one, “Missed Call,” is chilling. Watch it above–it’s the first video–then jump forward to watch a cast spotlight introducing the new characters. To get your full Fargo fix, you can visit FX on YouTube to watch all the promos released so far. Let me know in the comments if you have any theories about season three. [/Film]

Digitally Yours. If you’ve been longing to have Captain Planet in your life, Cartoon Network is here to help. They’re making all seasons of Captain Planet and the Planeteers, The New Adventures of Captain Planet, and The All New Adventures of Captain Planet available for digital download, and it’s the first time that’s been an option for the animated show from the ’90s. The series will arrive to iTunes, Amazon Video, Google Play, and other digital retailers on April 10. [Image: Cartoon Network]

Dressing for the Occasion. What happens when Bryan Cranston stops by The Late Show dressed as the Red Ranger? The above interview. My words don’t do it justice. [Nerdist]

Writer Time. Make your ears happy today by listening to the latest episode of The Writers Panel; it features Giana Fattore, Kathleen Robertson, and Courtney Lilly.

Pulling Rank. The Flash and Supergirl met last night in a musical crossover that was nothing short of charming and delightful. They were whammied by the Music Meister and an episode with song and dance ensued. How did the songs of “Duet” do? Sydney Bucksbaum has them ranked for you right this way.

What do you think about having a longer arc in Doctor Who or in any TV series? Tell me your thoughts on the subject in the comments.
