If you were worried about Matt Smith's career after leaving Doctor Who, you can stop now. The 11th Doctor was just officially announced to star in a yet-to-be-named role in the next three Terminator movies.

The movie already has Game of Thrones' Emilia Clarke as Sarah Connor, Jai Courtney as Kyle Reese, Jason Clarke as John Connor, and an appearance by Arnold himself. With the good guys pretty much set, we wonder if Smith will try his hand at villainy?

What do you think of the news?

Get your tissues, The Doctor's wife, River Song is returning to the show this Christmas for Doctor Who's annual holiday special. River Song has a convoluted plotline, but in summary as a fellow time-traveler, River and The Doctor generally meet each other out of order. 

Like that pair of ear buds in your pocket, these two lovebird's timelines are all tangled together. Whovians everywhere are rejoicing, because most naturally assumed that when Matt Smith left to the role in 2013, the River Song character would leave with him (that's what Smith wanted), but it looks like that was wrong. Actress Alex Kingston says:

To be honest, I did not know whether River would ever return to the show, but here she is, back with the Doctor for the Christmas special. Steven Moffat is on glittering form, giving us an episode filled with humour and surprise guest castings. I met Peter for the first time at Monday’s read through, we had a laugh, and I am now excited and ready to start filming with him and the Doctor Who team. Christmas in September? Why not!
Sorry Matt, it looks like River has some other Doctors to flirt with.
