I’m sure you’ve heard the news that Matt Smith has made the decision to leave his role as the eleventh Doctor in this year’s Christmas special. After an astounding tenure on the show, he’s moving onto fresh new projects where he can show off his phenomenal talent and...
X-Men is one of the great nostalgic franchises of our generation. It’s been going since the sixties, but most of us carry a torch for those rascally mutants from the classic cartoon of the early 90’s and the blockbuster Singer films from the 2000’s. For some, this was our first...
Zack Snyder’s Sucker Punch was a polarising film, to say the least. Was it feminist? Was it anti-feminist? Did it just rip off Inception and add pretty girls? MovieBob at The Escapist takes an analytical look at this controversial flick.

Fandom is in uproar. Everyone has woken up to the news that Disney has purchased Lucasfilm, with varying degrees of panic.

Which member of the Serenity crew can you simply not get enough of? Who is – definitively – the best Firefly character?
It’s not gonna be easy, but you can only pick one…

Yeah, I said it. There are no good superhero movies featuring a female lead. Not one single one. Try and think about for a minute. Think about the last superheroine movie you saw and compare it to the last superhero movie you watched. For me, those are 2004’s Catwoman and The Dark Knight Rises – and that’s when I start to get a bit cross.
As a young woman who loves superheroes in any medium, I’ve noticed it more and more as I’ve gotten older. The classic films of my childhood that inspired my love of the genre (1978’s Superman and 1989’s Batman) feature strong female secondary characters whose primary purpose is to...
Mark Kermode’s just uploaded his views – and those of his fans – of the best and worst of the summer blockbusters (not just for this year, but in recent years!) Sci-Fi makes some frequent appearances. Not entirely sure why he’s shot in the corner of an alleyway, but...
It’s time to settle this one, once and for all.
Kirk vs Luke? Khan vs Darth Vader? Wesley vs Angsty Anakin!?

I was watching clips of Deep Space Nine the other day, and it struck me what a brilliant array of supporting characters the show had accompanying strong leads.
So I figured I’d ask the world who their favourite character was! Personally, I have a hell of a lot of time for Weyoun. Jeffrey Combs performances were simply brilliant. It’s between him and Garak. I guess I have a thing for Machiavellian characters…
What is your favourite Deep Space Nine character?
