Review of the Year
Which shows did you most enjoy in 2002? We remind you of some of the best TV series this year and wonder what the future will bring…
Writer and show-runner Tim Minear drops by to explain that despite all the behind the scenes reshuffling, the new season of the LA vampire's adventures is better than ever!
Executive producer and co-creator Brandon Camp gives us the chance to meet John Doe: a mysterious man who knows every fact in the world… as long as it's not about himself.
We look back over nine years of scares, conspiracies, freakish monsters, offbeat comedy and, of course, Mulder and Scully and try to pinpoint why the show was such a massive success.
He's been poisoned countless times, blown up, stabbed, but for all this hassle he's still managed to land himself a lovely wife in the form of Charmed One Piper Halliwell, with whom he's now expecting a baby daughter. He's Leo, the witches' guardian angel, and the actor who plays him talks about his role in Season Five.
He may be a recent addition to the team, but Jeph Loeb certainly has the credentials to write for Clark Kent, as he's been doing so in comics form for several years. He and fellow writer/producer Alfred Gough talk to Cult Times about the Superman-to-be's latest growth spurt.
There's nothing quite like three gorgeous girls fighting for a country's freedom. But throw in the fact that they're ex-cons, not especially good at spying and enjoy talking to the camera during episodes and you've got a quirky new comedy-drama. Natashia Williams introduces Shane, Cassie and DD: the She Spies.
Birds of Prey
It may have been quickly dismissed from the TV schedules, but we got hold of top bird Dina Meyer, aka Barbara Gordon, aka computer genius Oracle, for a chat about her role in and out of a batsuit.
Reasonably well-known show creator/writer/producer/director Joss Whedon explains what he wants to achieve with his brand new show Firefly, and how it's very different to both of his previous creations, Buffy and Angel.
The Twilight Zone
The return of an old favourite, as Forest Whitaker takes on the mantle of host for more stories of the unusual and Pen Densham reveals his masterplan for reviving one of the best-loved genre shows of all time.
Scripts for 18 episodes in only four years? Joseph Mallozzi and Paul Mullie explain how their ideas make it from script to screen and hw they manage to keep up with the pace. It's something to do with miniature pool, apparently…
