US viewers, celebrate Leap Day and don’t forget to watch Kindred Part 2 tonight on Sci Fi! After last week’s 10-second cliff-hanger, Carson should figure prominently in Part 2. We hope our questions will be answered: who or what is this Carson, what has he been through, and what does his future hold? For a rather spoilery preview, watch the Sci Fi trailer here.
Perhaps in honor of this week’s airing of Kindred Part 1 in the US (and please everyone, tune in for Part 2 on 29 Feb!), there were a couple of interviews featuring Paul in the last few days:
- TrekMovie.com — on Paul’s response to this campaign, and his role in the new Star Trek movie!
- Niagara Falls Review — on his roles on Stargate and Star Trek
And keep an eye out for the interviews to be published in The Sun in the UK by journalist Craig McGill. He included fans’ questions and promises to publish Paul’s answers very soon at his website.
After many months of waiting admidst much speculation, this Friday marks the US premiere of the 2-part episode featuring the “resurrection” of Dr. Carson Beckett in Season 4. The Kindred Part 1 will air at 10 pm (9 pm Central) on Sci Fi Channel on Friday, February 22, and Part 2 will air on February 29. Continue reading “Finally! Watch "The Kindred" This Week”
Paul McGillion has taken a moment to respond to the news of his return in the role of Carson Beckett, with this message to the campaign:
I am really excited to reprise my role as “Dr Carson Beckett,” and I would like to thank all the people who have been so great to me, with all your support especially the SCB campaign (You Guys Rock!) What can I say? “Beckett’s Back!” and I owe it to the Fans! Thank You! Thank You! Thank You!
Lots of Luv
P.S. Im ready to Kick some ASS! SCOTTISH STYLE!!!
As usual, Paul is a class act! It was our pleasure, Paul. We just wish we could have brought you back full-time!
Sci Fi Channel has finally made a press release, which you can read HERE. Carson Beckett will return in Season 5 for five epsiodes.
Joe Mallozzi has promised that Sci Fi will finally put out an official press release about Atlantis Season 5 on Monday Feb. 4. Joe’s many hints about Carson point to his return as a recurring character, but of course that can mean anything from 2 epsiodes to 20! Let’s hope it’s closer to the latter, and we’ll have a better idea on Monday.
