It’s Tax Day at ‘Black Books’

Oh, Geez! It’s ‘Fargo’ time

Oh Geez! Just when you thought it was safe to go back to Fargo…     On the surface, even a remote passing thought of trying to translate Coen brothers big screen perfection to the small screen seems crazy. On paper, however, tonight’s premiere of Fargo on FX has all the makings of ‘Must-See-TV’. Written […]

‘The Escape Artist’ heads to PBS this June

David Tennant (Doctor Who, Broadchurch) is a talented junior barrister, Will Burton, specializing in the ability to get people out of tight legal corners, hence his nickname of the Escape Artist. He’s known for never losing a case which leads him to apply for the title of QC. Unfortunately, he meets Liam Foyle along the […]

Sir David Suchet heads to the West End as….Lady Bracknell?

The Importance of Being Earnest, Oscar Wilde’s classic comedy of false identities and true love has a brilliant history on stage. Over the years, the iconic role of Lady Bracknell has been played by what seems like a who’s who of British greatness as Judi Dench, Maggie Smith and Penelope Keith have all uttered the […]

Post ‘Miranda’, Tom Ellis heading to Los Angeles for USA’s ‘Rush’

Jessica Brown-Findlay recently discovered that Jamaica Inn is not next door to Downton Abbey. Kevin Doyle found out it’s actually more fun to give orders on The Crimson Field than take them from Mr. Carson in Downton Abbey.

The boys from the ‘Small Rouge One’ are back for series XI!

While there hasn’t been confirmation of this as of yet on reddwarf.co.uk, it’s worth putting this out there because news is traveling fast around the Internets…and everything you read on the Internets is true, right? Almost three years to the day since Dave’s announcement that there was to be a Red Dwarf X in our […]

Jessica Brown-Findlay’s Jamaica Inn address is a far cry from Downton Abbey

Just as Kevin Doyle (Mr. Molesley) found that there is life beyond Downton Abbey with his current gig as Colonel Roland Brett in the World War I drama, The Crimson Field, such is also the case also for Jessica Brown Findlay, who played Lady Sybil in Downton. While Doyle has the security of knowing he […]

TARDIS’ discovered on the streets of Glasgow

In 1963, when Doctor Who began, hundreds of blue police phone boxes were scattered all over the UK. They served a very important purpose in the days before the Internet and smartphones (I know, just after the Ice Age). Inside these iconic blue boxes were actual telephones in which passers-by could alert the police if […]

Mr. Molesley finally gets to give orders in ‘The Crimson Field”

The Crimson Field premiered last night on BBC One. For Kevin Doyle, his portrayal of Colonel Roland Brett in the World War I drama is a far cry from his recent demotion to footman at Downton Abbey and his interminable suffering at the hands of Carson. “It’s nice to be giving orders rather than receiving […]
