Posted in Array with tags , , , , , , , , , on May 13, 2010 by Geek Tv

The BBC has commissioned a new eight-part sci-fi series from Ashes To Ashes producer Kudos Film and Television.

Outcasts follows a diverse group of people who are living in a small town on a fictional planet that has been colonised by humans. These pioneers are helping build a new community far away from their loved ones and are optimistic about their future, but the planet holds many mysteries which threaten to destroy the fragile peace.

The cast includes Hermione Norris (Spooks), Danny Mays (Ashes To Ashes), Eric Mabius (Ugly Betty), Jamie Bamber (Battlestar Galactica) and Ashley Walters (Small Island).

The series is currently being filmed in South Africa for transmission in the Autumn on BBC One.

I say WOOT 😀

Panoramics let you explore the Doctor’s world

You can now explore the forest of the Byzantium as well as the Dalek’s craft!

Panoramics are 2-dimensional environments you can explore online and BBC has added hotspots, meaning you can search for and click on certain elements to unlock information about the image you’ve selected. Or the hotspot could give you a video, wallpaper, photo gallery or even a trailer. The panoramics are complete 360 degrees representations of places the Doctor has visited so you may even discover things that remained tantalizingly out of sight during the episode!

The first panoramic takes you inside the Daleks’ ship as seen in Victory of the Daleks. The hotspots contain exclusive material. The second panoramic let you explore the forest of the Byzantium without even getting your feet muddy! Find the hotspots to unlock behind the scenes videos, images, galleries, information and more!

Future panoramics will let you explore the forest featured in Flesh and Stone and the TARDIS itself. And don’t forget to visit BBC’s new range of jigsaws!
