1st AMAZING look at Being Human's Aidan Turner as Kili in Peter Jackson's The Hobbit

Finally! The one we've all been waiting for, our very first look of actor Aidan Turner (Being Human's vampire, Mitchell)as Kili in Peter Jackson's The Hobbit, the upcoming sequel/prequel to The Lord of the Rings.

And if you were afraid all that dwarf makeup would hide Turner's total hotness, well you'll be really, really happy to see they've kept his smouldering looks relatively intact.

Take a look below:

1st look at Martin Freeman as Bilbo Baggins: and look! The Dwarves too!

There it is! Our first official look at Martin Freeman as a young Bilbo Baggins in Peter Jackson's upcoming The Hobbit 2-part film.

We're also getting our very first glimpse at the dwarves accompanying Bilbo on his journey (or rather, it's Bilbo who's actually accompanying the dwarves on their journey, thanks to Gandalf), with a direct view at Richard Armitage (Spooks) as Thorin Oakenshield (I wonder where Being Human's Aidan Turner is in there... hmmmm).

I have to say the dwarves are not as colorful as they're described in J.R.R Tolkien's book, but that's more in keeping with the look of Peter Jackson's The Lord of the Rings trilogy.

And Freeman does look wonderful as Bilbo, doesn't he?

Sherlock star Benedict Cumberbatch to join Peter Jackson's The Hobbit!

In what is absolutely AWESOME news, seems that Sherlock himself, actor Benedict Cumberbatch, will be joining the cast of Peter Jackson's The Hobbit!

That’s what Cumberbatch’s co-star, actor Martin Freeman (who plays the younger Bilbo Baggins in Peter Jackson's two-parter prequel to The Lord of the Rings), let slip when the duo picked up the BAFTA award for Best Drama for Sherlock on Sunday.

Goodbye Sarah Jane Smith: Elisabeth Sladen 1948-2011

Yesterday, the Whoniverse got the saddest, most unexpected news about the passing of actress Elisabeth Sladen, who died of cancer.

Sladen played one of the most beloved companions in Doctor Who history, investigative reporter Sarah Jane Smith, and went on to work alongside Doctors number Three (John Pertwee) and Four (Tom Baker), as well as later meeting up with Ten (David Tennant) inWho's series 2 episode School Reunion -- which led to getting her own spinoff series, The Sarah Jane Adventures -- and recently with Eleven (Matt Smith) in Death of the Doctor.

The BBC has released a long and heartfelt tribute to Lis Sladen which you can read here.

All I can say is that it's such a shock, and I'm extremely sad about the passing of this lovely woman, who left us all too soon, all too young.

RIP Elisabeth Sladen. You will be missed.
