BCTV Daily Dispatch 31 July 2021: Obi-Wan Worry & Domino's Deathmatch

'Cause we're in the stars tonight. So watch us bring the fire and set the night alight. Shining through the city with a little funk and soul. So we'll light it up like…. the BCTV Daily Dispatch! With waves of love and respect to BTS (check out the video at the end of the post), welcome to your daily dose of the best things happening across the television landscape as we take a look at what's been hitting your radar in the past 24 hours. Checking in with Saturday's newbies, we have SNL's Michael Che in hot water over Simone Biles, Steven Moffat spoiling a Doctor Who Series 13 big bad, why Marvel Studios should switch to binge-dropping its series, why Michaela Coel would be a great Doctor (and that's why she won't be), Law & Order pals Christopher Meloni and Mariska Hargitay have some Instagram fun, Domino's taking issue with AEW over product placement, and Obi-Wan Kenobi star Joel Edgerton can imagine one filming concern. From there, we wrap up with "5 More Things"- five articles that almost made the cut but are still worth your time.
