“Doctor Who”, “Interview with the Vampire”, and “Maxton Hall” lead this week's Must List

See EW’s top pop culture picks for the week of May 10.

This past weekend I went with some friends to our nearest AMC (proud A-List member despite still yearning for a closer Alamo Drafthouse) to catch a May the Fourth screening of The Phantom Menace. As the disappointingly same-as-the-old-but-somehow-less-magical new Nicole Kidman intro faded out and the words “A long time ago…” appeared, I had to wonder if we’ve just become too nostalgic for nostalgia. We all still cheered during that podracer scene, though. Patrick Gomez, Editor-in-Chief

It’s time for a trip in the TARDIS. Sex Education and Barbie breakout Ncuti Gatwa takes over the iconic British sci-fi show, starring as the latest incarnation of everyone’s favorite time-traveling, two-hearted alien. Gatwa’s Doctor is clever, charming, and an absolute delight. And although the show has aired for more than 60 years, this new season makes for a perfect jumping-on point, whether you’re a total Who newbie or well-versed in Gallifreyan lore. As a bonus, the BBC and Disney+ are partnering to release each episode simultaneously worldwide, making it easier than ever for us Americans to watch. Allons-y! Devan Coggan, Senior Writer

'Late Night with the Devil'

The first great scary movie of 2024 has arrived. Presented in a mockumentary/analog horror (!!!) format, the film (streaming on Shudder) sees a has-been 1970s late-night host make a Faustian gamble when he pushes a guest to perform a seance live to help boost ratings. The slow-burn fallout blends occult conspiracies with human drama (plus creepy kids and '70s sideburns), and I adored every second of it. Allaire Nuss, Associate Editor

Maxton Hall — The World Between Us

James Beaufort (Damian Hardung) is rich and arrogant. Ruby Bell (Harriet Herbig-Matten) is a brilliant scholarship student who waitresses on the side. You know where this is going. Based on Mona Kasten’s novel Save Me, this swoony German-language drama (on Prime Video) follows the YA enemies-to-lovers blueprint to the letter, and that soothing familiarity is its greatest strength. Kristen Baldwin, TV Critic

Sink your teeth into a new season of the best blood-sucking show on TV. And there’s a lot of new — Claudia is now played by Delainey Hayles after Bailey Bass’ exit. Louis (Jacob Anderson) meets new love Armand (Assad Zaman) while being haunted by old flame Lestat (Sam Reid). Book readers may think they know what’s coming, but this show loves going off script in the best way. Sydney Bucksbaum, Staff Writer

With their dance-driven, dialogue-free adaptation of Sufjan Stevens’ 2005 album Illinois, choreographer Justin Peck and playwright Jackie Sibblies Drury have done what once seemed impossible: They’ve added a thrilling new dimension to a beloved classic and redefined what a Broadway musical can be. And now they have four Tony noms to prove it. Jason Lamphier, Senior Editor
