Doctor Who The 12th Doctor (Peter Capaldi)

When it comes to engaging viewers the Twelfth Doctor (Peter Capaldi) rises above the cable competition. It seems that more viewers who tuned into the the premiere episode of Doctor Who Season 8 stuck around to watch the entire episode than any other show airing on cable that week. The Doctor Who premiere also had a higher stickiness index, according to Rentrak, Inc. than the stickiest shows on broadcast TV during the same period.

The Season 8 premiere episode of Doctor Who may have been the most engaging show of the the, however, it didn’t garner the most attention on social media. That honor went to the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards show. Interestingly the MTV awards show, which aired the day after the Doctor Who premiere ranked fifth on the Stickiness Index for Cable shows indicating that fewer viewers who did tune in to the broadcast kept watching until the end credits rolled.

Rentrak is the leader in measuring movies and TV everywhere. Social media and viewer engagement results are for the week ending August 24, 2014.


Paul Hyett has a date with werewolves on a train in Howl!

Looks more than interesting although I’m a little concerned that I may never want to take the train again. It’s been a while since we had a compelling and well-made werewolf movie. Hopefully Howl will be it!

This is going to be glorious.

There’s exactly two reasons why the horror world should be paying attention to Howl. The first one is obvious: It’s about werewolves. And the second? Well, that goes to Mr. Paul Hyett. You may not be familiar with the name but you’ve no doubt seen his work in dozens of films. Hyett is the terrifying mind behind the SFX on films like The Descent, Attack the Block, Doomsday and so much more. And that doesn’t even scratch the surface. He recently took his talents behind the camera of his feature film debut with a little film called The Seasoning House, which is a vicious in-your-face tale of revenge, proving that Hyett has a voice in the genre worth listening to.
