Essentialist Brits Abroad: hot right now

A recent issue of Essentials magazine features a look at a Brits abroad 'hot right now' list, and Tom is included, mentioning Starfish which is released in UK next week. Apparently Tom is shy! And we wont get to see him on the red carpet soon. Apart from next week at the Starfish premiere. Love how they included a photo of Tom at a very recent red carpet event to illustrate their point! 

The Telegraph's battle for top Toms - your vote is needed!

Our Tom has been included in an amusing article in today's Telegraph about the cream of top British Toms. Tom Riley's description did make me giggle: gently-stubbled... Read it in full on The Telegraph website, and VOTE for our Tom! 

Tom Riley

Age: 35

Get ready to see a lot more of this gently-stubbled Tom. He’s currently in Amazon’s The Collection, playing one half of a Parisian fashion house brother-partnership, stars as the lead in next month’s Starfish, a real-life story about a British man who lost his arms and legs to sepsis, and heads up ITV’s upcoming detective drama Dark Heart.

You’ll know him from Da Vinci’s Demons (he played the never not open-shirted Leonardo), Monroe and ITV’s Lost in Austen.

Originally from Maidstone in Kent, the well-spoken actor first trod the boards aged five and poses a double threat, acting and producing.

He once described himself as not “the conventional handsome Hollywood leading man” but with LA teeth and carefully cultivated chest hair, that doesn’t ring quite true.

Doctor Who: series 8 broadcast date & SFX article

The BBC announced the broadcast date for Doctor Who series 8, which means we have an idea when Tom's episode 3 will air in the UK and US. Series 8 episode 1 starts on August 23rd 2014 - with episode 3 hopefully airing on 6th Sptember 2014. It seems that BBC America broadcasts the show on the same day as BBC One in the UK.

An article in the latest SFX magazine (August 2014), now on sale, looks at the new series, and includes a small photo of Tom on set. The SFX website has more details about each episode.

Episode Three Writer:
Mark Gatiss (his seventh story for the show)

Paul Murphy (Wizards Vs Aliens, Brookside, Casualty)

Doctor Who: from Swansea to Cardiff

The buzz online today, following the announcement of Tom's appearance in series 8 of Doctor Who, has been amazing. A long term fan, Tom is clearly excited about being part of the show, and mentioned it (without revealing any details) in a recent interview for Screen Crush. 

But I’m about to do an indie movie, then I’m going to do something for two weeks that I can’t talk about but I’m so excited about my brain wants to pop, and that will just about fit until we go again.

His tweet this morning has been quoted extensively in online articles.
