Never Say Nevers

The wait on Joss Whedon's new one has been so stretched out that I keep forgetting it's even there -- called The Nevers it's about "a gang of Victorian women who find themselves with unusual abilities, relentless enemies, and a mission that might change the world," so basically a Steampunk Buffy of sorts, is my guess. Dr. Who meets Charlie's Angels! I'm just spitballing. Anyway EW has revealed the majority of the show's cast all of a sudden, so the wait time has snapped back -- read them all here, but the highlights for me are the perfect specimen James Norton as "a pansexual posh boy" (seems about right) and Olivia Williams as whatever the hell she's playing, she's Olivia fucking Williams. Joss already gave her a killer part once with Dollhouse; I'm glad he's bringing her back. Also in the cast of note is Edgar Wright regular Nick Frost, and then there's Tom Riley from Da Vinci's Demons, an actor who's caught my eye before...
