This week in BEST OF LAST WEEK, we’re fangirling with “Doctor Who,” getting to know Crazy Eyes, tweeting from the Iron Throne and Canadians chatting up Bob Odenkirk. And NBC is bringing us a day in the life of The Beatles…well, 8 days, to be exact.
– “Doctor Who” Goes On the Road
Calling all Whovians! The 12th Doctor, Peter Capaldi, and his faithful companion Clara (Jenna Coleman), are going around the world for an upcoming 7-city promotional tour. Showrunner Steven Moffat will join the time traveling duo, but only for part of the tour, which includes Cardiff (of course), London, Seoul, Sydney, New York, Mexico City, and Rio. You’ll still have to wait a little while for the new season, though. It airs sometime in August.
– Crazy Eyes Plays All the Roles on “Orange Is the New Black”
Like you, we binged on the entire second season of “Orange Is the New Black”…and now we’re going through some major withdrawal. To help you out, we present Crazy Eyes (aka Uzo Aduba) playing the roles she wasn’t cast for. Not gonna lie, it’s amazing and kinda scary at the same time.
– Your Weekly “Game of Thrones” News
Don’t worry – no spoilers here. “Game of Thrones” author George R.R. Martin has finally landed in the 21st century and opened a Twitter account. We’re not sure he knows exactly how to use it yet…here’s his first tweet:
I don’t tweet all that much, please check out my live journal page. ;) #myfirstTweet

We can’t put it any better than Stephen Colbert:
George R.R. Martin has joined twitter! He will introduce 140 characters, and then kill off your favorite ones. — Stephen Colbert (@StephenAtHome) June 11, 2014
Go ahead, tweet at him: @GRRMspeaking
– Reporter Interviews Bob Odenkirk…But Doesn’t Realize It
This poor reporter was just trying to do a “man on the street” interview and got a bit more than he bargained for…not realizing that he was interviewing “The” Bob Odenkirk. It keeps getting funnier every time you watch it!
– The Beatles Are Back in the U.S.A.!
NBC is planning an event series (an 8-parter) based on The Beatles that will be developed by the creators of “The Tudors.” We could not be more excited for the Fab Four to return to American TV, 50 years after their debut on “The Ed Sullivan Show.” We love every little thing about this!
And we know this doesn’t quite count as “Best of Last Week,” but the finale of “Game of Thrones” airs tonight at 9pm (or much earlier if you’ve got HBO Go). We don’t think we need to tell you not to miss it.
