BREAKING NEWS: CW’s The Flash to crossover with CBS’ Supergirl!

Supergirl The Flash greg berlanti grant gustin melissa benoist cbs cw crossover

Executive producers Greg Berlanti and Andrew Kreisberg have recently confirmed what many fans have been hoping for for quite some time now: Grant Gustin’s Barry Allen will be appearing on Supergirl in the latter half of the program’s debut season.

An official statement reads ““We are so incredibly excited to announce something that we have dreamed of happening since we starting making Supergirl —The Flash and Supergirl are teaming up!”

The episode will air on March 28th on CBS in the US; with the return of Supergirl having been pushed back until April 1st in the UK, it’ll be quite some time before we’re able to see Grant Gustin teaming up with Melissa Benoist’s Kara Danvers on the small screen.

My article on this great news, which is over on the Yahoo TV website.

This mostly just pissed off people in the comments, because they – fairly, admittedly – felt that this was not, under any reasonable definition of the term, “breaking news”. But I was still working out how to do news articles, you know (arguably I still am) and this was the start of the idea, I guess.

BREAKING NEWS: Steven Moffat leaving Doctor Who; Broadchurch showrunner Chris Chibnall to be his replacement

It’s been reported by the Radio Times that Steven Moffat, showrunner of Doctor Who since 2010, will be stepping down after the conclusion of the tenth season of Doctor Who,to be replaced by Chris Chibnall.

Chibnall, of course, was showrunner for the wonderful Broadchurch – incidentally starring former Doctor Who star David Tennant – which has been met with much acclaim over the course of its run on ITV. Chibnall also has previous experience with Doctor Who, having written for both the Tenth and Eleventh Doctors, as well as being the primary writer for Torchwood in its first two seasons.

It has been confirmed that Doctor Who series ten will broadcast in 2017, as Moffat’s final season; 2016 will see only a Christmas special in December. Chris Chibnall’s first season as showrunner will begin in 2018 – there’s no word at present as to whether or not Peter Capaldi will remain in the starring role under Chris Chibnall.

My article about Moffat being replaced by Chibnall, posted on the Yahoo TV website. There’s a bit of a reaction there too, and some speculation about the series 10 companion which did end up bearing out correctly, which is neat.
