'Breaking Bad' co-star Jonathan Banks talks about Mike Ehrmantraut

A scheduling accident led to the role of a lifetime

Jonathan Banks has had a long, varied career, but he's never had a better role. He's done drama. He's done comedy. He's played good guys (most notably as FBI Agent Frank McPike on "Wiseguy") and heavies. But he's never had a role as nuanced, as memorable, as his gig on "Breaking Bad" as cop-turned-fixer Mike Ehrmantraut.

(Spoilers coming up immediately if you haven't seen this week's episode.)

'Doctor Who' to return to BBC America on September 1

Five-episode run to say goodbye to Amy Pond and Rory

"Doctor Who" will return to BBC America on Saturday, September 1 at 9 p.m.

The seventh season of the rebooted "Doctor Who" will be premiering on the same day in Great Britain. Even though this is a holiday weekend in America, BBC America executives apparently felt (rightly so) that they were better off sticking day-and-date with the UK rather than inviting American viewers to illegally download the episodes.

The seventh season will be split into a few chunks, and the first batch will be five episodes that will send off Karen Gillan and Arthur Darvill as the Doctor's most recent companions, Amy Pond and Rory Williams. It's unclear whether the new companion, played by Jenna Louise Coleman, will be introduced in these episodes or further down the line.

If you want a taste of what's to come in the new season, here's a spoiler-y quote from showrunner Steven Moffat:
