The economic downturn is hard on everyone, it seems.


"X-Files" star Gillian Anderson may make a guest appearance on "Doctor Who."

Sources say programme chiefs want the London-based X-Files star to appear opposite the new DoctorMatt Smith in a one-off adventure next year. It’s understood the American actress could play renegade Time Lady The Rani, a glamorous but evil scientific genius previously played in the series by Kate O’Mara in the Eighties.

“Gillian obviously has a massive sci-fi following and it’s felt it would be a major coup to have her appear in Doctor Who,” says a show insider. “The team behind the show are keen for the next Doctor to have lots of new enemies and Gillian would be a glamorous and impressive addition to the list. The Rani would be a perfect role for her as the character used to be regarded as one of the Doctor’s most deadly opponents.”


Paul McCartney may have earned the Coachella Festival a hefty fine because his set was 54 minutes too long.

Under laws put in place by the area's local authority, promoters Goldenvoice are liable for a £1,000 fine for every minute of music played after midnight.

The exact penalty is expected to be announced in a few weeks.


The archives of music trade mag Billboard are now searchable via Google Books. Doesn't look like every year is available, but lots of fun, nostalgic is to be had.
