“Despite a large black population, British film had seen precious few black female voices break out until Amma Asante arrived on the scene with her debut feature “A Way of Life”. Winning the BAFTA award for Best Debut Feature, Asante has attracted a star cast to her follow-up “Belle”, including Matthew Goode, Miranda Richardson, Tom Wilkinson and Emily Watson. Starring Gugu Mbatha Raw as a mixed race woman raised as an aristocrat in 18th century Britain, it is set to reinvigorate the traditionally stuffy British period genre when it enters production this year.
It shot on the Isle Of Man, London, Oxford, as well as Pinewood Studios and is due to wrap Nov. 9.
Bankside Films is handling worldwide sales, with the Isle Of Man’s CinemaNX on board to distribute in the U.K.”
IS THAT JACKIE TYLER IN THE BACKGROUND!??!!!
also are we just ignoring the fact that all three of them have a pizza to themselves and theyve drank more coke than i have in my whole life
no but seriously is that jackie tyler
Okay, so I showed this picture to Camille Coduri, who plays Jackie Tyler. Based on her exclamation of “Is that Harry Potter?!” I’d say she’s not met Daniel Radcliffe before. She took my phone off me and after inspecting the photo closely, concluded that it wasn’t her because she’s never owned that cardi or that dress, but she thinks it’s a brilliant lookalike, especially because the guy next to her looks like Noel (who played Mickey).
In conclusion, no, it’s not Jackie Tyler. But she thinks it’s brilliant anyway.
I can’t believe no one has noticed the fact that GANDALF was in the Christmas ep of Doctor Who…
He was the SNOW.
He was GANDALF THE WHITE.
'Great Intelligence' also relates to Gandalf as in him being wise and all-knowing.

WELL DONE EVERYBODY!
January is complete! You have all worked so hard and this project has gone far better than I ever could have imagined! The work produced has been inventive, gorgeous and fun.
Above are my Top 5 in order, and I would like to offer prizes for my Top 3.
#1 The Highlanders by fabledquill
This piece really gets what this project was all about - making beautiful illustrations. In a way, illustrating the actual story was secondary to the artwork. I love how this holds back from illustrating things fully, I love how it cuts off Jamie’s face. This feels like a book cover to the story, and book covers often don’t show the whole figure. I particularly like the way you’ve adapted a missing story. Well done!
You win first dibs on illustrating something for the New Series. Send me an ask with your one choice. Thanks! :)
#2 The Tenth Planet by atarial
This is a more literal piece of fan art than my first choice which is why I gave it second place. However, it is still, obviously, phenemonal and you should be commended for managing to fit in the important elements of the story into a really neat composition. I can’t wait to see how you tackle another story!
You win first dibs on illustrating something for the New Series. However, if you and #1 both request the same story, they will get priority. Therefore, please send me an ask with your TWO choices. Thanks! :)
#3 The Romans by romaaana
This entry always stood out for me and it uses an idea I hope to see in future entries. This was one of the very few to really explore and have fun with the time period in which the story was set. The composition is beautiful and the mosaic style is inspired. I’d love to see more like this!
You win first dibs on illustrating something for the New Series.However, if you, #1 and #2 all request the same story, they will get priority. Therefore, please send me an ask with your THREE choices. Thanks! :)
Those are my top three but I did want to talk about two others I loved and just missed out.
The Sensorites by lydiabutz
This is a great piece of work and was only just pushed out by the pieces above. The reason I like this is that it uses one iconic shot as a basis. Too many of the entries weren’t selective enough, they tried to illustrate every part of the story, every character. Taking one particular shot or element that stays with you is a LOT better, I believe. And this just works so well.
The Edge of Destruction by iwamotoyuri
The illustration of Susan in this image is fantastic! The lighting really captures the mood of the story (by actually making it more dramatic). I like the illustration of Susan so much that I really think the inclusion of her grandfather spoils it. Imagine the image which just Susan, surrounded by darkness… it’d give it a lot more important I think. It’s a great entry and I can’t wait to see what you do for a possible second one, but I reminder to everyone that less is almost always more.
Truthfully though, I’ve been very impressed with what I’ve seen so far and can’t wait for Month 2!
