'Doctor Who' Season 6'Doctor Who' fans have just about a month to wait before new episodes from the hotly anticipated second half of Season 6 air in the US.

To whet their appetite, the BBC and BBC America have released two new trailers, in which we are told "Something is happening to Time." Uh oh.

Why does the Doctor say his time is running out? Who is Winston Churchill pointing a gun at? Er, did Adolf Hitler just thank the Doctor, Amy and Rory for saving his life? And just why, exactly, is the Doctor trying to make out with Craig Owens (James Corden)?

Watch both trailers after the jump and see what you make of them.

Editor's Pick: The Brits Invade Comedy Network With 'Little Britain, USA'

by Chris Jancelewicz, posted Jan 26th 2010 12:40PM

The Brits have taken over The Comedy Network with the outrageous sketch comedy 'Little Britain, USA'. Award-winning comedians Matt Lucas and David Walliams took the United Kingdom and Australia by storm with their hit comedy 'Little Britain,' and they hope to repeat the success in Canada with the Americanized version.

This 30-minute, six-episode series features 'Little Britain' faves in all-new sketches, as well as a host of new characters, all performed by Lucas and Walliams. In typical sketch-com style, Lucas and Walliams suit up to play returning favorites including: Dafydd Thomas, the self-proclaimed "only gay in the village", Lou and his wheelchair-bound best friend Andy, Marjorie Dawes, the insensitive leader of a chapter of the weight-loss support group Fatfighters, and Vicky Pollard, a teenage delinquent with a bad attitude.

Guest star cameos include Rosie O'Donnell, Sting, and many more.

The show airs on Wednesdays at 10 pm ET on The Comedy Network.

For some strange reason, I was initially compelled to start this installment of Sketch Comedy Saturday with "Never fear, Little Britain is here!" I suppose there was a need for a campy intro. Then, I realized that there are actually plenty of things to fear in Little Britain: Matt Lucas wearing really tight shorts, old women violently projectile vomiting on everything in sight, more Matt Lucas wearing really, really tight shorts ... Really, the horrifying list goes on.

Quick Chat with the Little Britain USA guys

Little BritainIf you love British comedy, people who make jabs at America or men dressed in drag for that matter (we won't judge), then Little Britain USA (premiering Sunday, Sept. 28 at 10:30 PM EST on HBO) should be right up your alley.

David Walliams and Matt Lucas, who created and starred in the hit BBC series Little Britain, are bringing their irreverent humor and a bunch of their best characters -- like Phyllis, who believes her dog talks to her; Carol Beer, the meanest hospital receptionist you'll ever meet; and Bubbles Devere, a wildly inappropriate and totally uninhibited British socialite -- to America.

We talked to David and Matt about their dream of dressing George Clooney up as a lady, why following in Sacha Baron Cohen and Ricky Gervias' footsteps is just fine with them and how Brits and Americans really differ. (Hint: Men don't shave their bikini lines over there.)

Little Britain star to swim English Channel

by Annie Wu, posted Jun 2nd 2006 5:24PM
David WalliamsDavid Walliams, one of the stars of Little Britain, is going to attempt to swim the 21 miles of the English Channel. This feat is all in the name of a charity called Sport Relief, where half of the proceeds are spent in the UK to help families in disadvantaged communities and the other half is for children and young people in the world's poorest countries. You can go on the Sport Relief website and sponsor David before he takes on this tremendous task (less than 10% of people actually make it across the other side).

I can't help but wonder if he would get more money if he agreed to swim in costume.
