Sanctuary – Series 3 exclusively on Watch
2011 July 22
The second half of series three of Sci-fi hit Sanctuary roars back exclusively onto Watch each Tuesday at 9pm (from June 7th) with more monsters and explosive action.
You can find Watch on Sky 109 and Virgin Media 124.
Featuring Stargate's Amanda Tapping as 158-year-old Dr Helen Magnus, head of a secret group of some of the 19th century's most experimental minds (including Nikola Tesla and Dr James Watson) who has crossed the boundaries of time to patrol the streets, she offers help and sanctuary to monsters and beasts that are found on the streets and in dark corners, and aren't accepted by human society.
Along with her own century-and-a-half's worth of experience, Magnus has gathered around her an expert team of 'abnormal' hunters - there's reluctant protégé Will, her reckless daughter Ashley, geeky Henry and a taciturn Neanderthal-like abnormal they call Big Guy.
Sanctuary season 3 US DVD and blu-ray release: September 13.
Sanctuary season 3 UK DVD release: September 26.

The rumors of nekkid volturi in a bath house scene were false - sorry if anyone got their hopes up ;-)
The most you can see of Chris is in Kingdom Hospital, where he's wearing only a loincloth.
Or if you prefer the other side, in his episode of Saved, he runs around the ER dressed only in a hospital gown ...

2009-03-03 - Chris in Stargate magazine: ”Creepy? Moi?”There's an interview with Chris in the latest issue of
The Official Stargate magazine, issue #27:
As the Athosian Halling, actor Christopher Heyerdahl never gave any hint of the creepy within – and then Todd came along. In the latest issue, the man behind everyone’s favorite Wraith talks about his multi-dimensional character: “I’ve always said that Todd feels a brother in Sheppard. And Sheppard is the kind of guy that won’t acknowledge it publicly. He said things when they spent time together in that little cell that he would only say in private. In public, Sheppard’s always saying, “I don’t like that guy, I don’t trust that guy.” He protests too much – he’s Lady Macbeth, right?” US issue for sale February 24.

2009-01-10:And so Stargate Atlantis ends :-(
But while not as long a run as Stargate SG-1, 5 years is still more than most shows get.
Chris Heyerdahl was in the first episode and the last, and lots in between - 22 in total which amounts to a full season). He played Halling in the premiere episode, and he played Todd in the finale, and during the five seasons, he repeated both characters, plus played a bunch of anonymous wraiths.
And while Halling was a human, it was as the wraith Todd he spawned multiple fan sites and groups and lists. br> Gotta love an interesting bad guy!
Updated the resume and added a bunch of wraith links.

The guests will be there, work permitting.
