After appearing as James Bond in seven hit films beginning with 1973's "Live and Let Die" and concluding with 1985's "A View to a Kill," Roger Moore put his acting career on the back burner. For two decades, he has devoted much of his time to being a goodwill ambassador for UNICEF, and was knighted in 2003 for his charity work. But Saturday, he returns in Hallmark Channel's holiday fantasy "A Princess for Christmas. " Moore, 84, plays the fabulously wealthy Edward Duke of Castlebury, who invites his estranged young American niece, nephew and their aunt to his castle in the snowy countryside of a fictional European country (the film was shot in Romania)

"The Day of the Doctor" (BBC America, Saturday), "The Night of the Doctor" and "The Last Day" (online, at your will), "An Adventure in Space and Time" (BBC America, Friday). "Doctor Who," the television show/British national monument about an alien gadabout who travels all of creation, from end to end and first to last, in a living blue police call box, turns 50 Saturday. It will be marked properly, not with a look back (though there have been those as well) but with an actual, brand new, extremely special episode, "The Day of the Doctor," whose particulars are being kept very secret, except for the bits that aren't.

Even for Los Angeles, it's an impressive star-studded cast. Roger Moore owned the Beverly Hills Post Office Spanish hacienda in the '80s and '90s, then Candice Bergen bought it, and now the new owner is Cameron Diaz. The property was quietly shopped around to agents as a pocket listing for $10.25 million, but the sales price has not yet been reported on the L.A. County Tax Assessor's website. Occupying about 3 acres in a gated community, the compound has a 5,000-square-foot main house with three bedrooms and four bathrooms and a 2,000-square-foot guesthouse with three bedrooms and two bathrooms, according to online marketing information.

Some captivities are a good deal more pleasant and endurable than others, but in the end all captivities begin to chafe at least a little. Ever since he launched his long run as television's The Saint, for example, Roger Moore has been the amply rewarded captive of his considerable gift for portraying an adventurous, romantic insouciance. The gift went on to serve him well through seven outings as James Bond.

The man who Oklahoma City bombing conspirator Terry L. Nichols said provided explosives used in the blast denied Wednesday that he had any role, and said the attempt to link him to the plot fit Nichols' demeanor as someone who "hated everybody." Roger Moore, a longtime gun collector who was considered a possible suspect in the early days of the FBI's investigation, said he had never seen or heard of the explosives Nichols claimed Moore provided for the bombing.

It'd be hard to find an isolation as splendid as this one. The mountains are swathed in snow, the trees are flecked with white and the ski lodges are getting ready for high season. Film director Roman Polanski traded prison for a veritable winter wonderland Friday as he began an indefinite period of house arrest up in the Swiss Alps. Instead of a jail cell, Polanski now has free run of his three-story villa here in Gstaad. Instead of fellow inmates, the people around him include his wife and their two children.

"Sidney Sheldon's If Tomorrow Comes." Read by Roger Moore. Two-cassette abridgement. Newman/Dove. The former 007 at his most earnestly mellifluous gives a very listenable account of Sheldon's tale of a daughter's ingenious schemes to avenge her mother. The success leads to a life in jet-set crime in which the victims are less sympathetic than the victors, who run more switchbacks than a Grand Prix course.
