Cumberbatch. Benedict Cumberbatch.

Seems like there isn’t a day that goes by that Sherlock star, Benedict Cumberbatch, isn’t linked to some upcoming role on the big screen. Most play out over time such as Star Trek Into Darkness, The Hobbit, Tinker Tailor, etc. Others seem to endlessly remain a rumor (insert upcoming new JJ Abrams’ Star Wars mega-blockbuster […]

Sir Harry Pearce back on the grid for ‘Spooks: The Greater Good’

For those that have been off the grid since Spooks (MI5 in America) came to an end there is light at the end of the tunnel. Filming has begun on Spooks: The Greater Good, the feature film which picks up where the TV series left off. You might remember that Sir Harry had decided to […]

‘Mapp and Lucia’ to get re-boot in 2015

2014-2015 looks to be quite an ambitious drama slate for BBC One. Death in Paradise and Call the Midwife will each return for their fourth series in 2015. New commissions will feature two new Agatha Christie adaptations, And Then There Were None and Partners in Crime. Aidan Turner (Being Human, The Hobbit), Eleanor Tomlinson (Death […]

Bits and Bobs from the set of Doctor Who 8!

As most of us are painfully aware, we’re still in the neighborhood of four months away from the season 8 premiere of Doctor Who, the first that will star Peter Capaldi as the Twelfth Doctor.

Sherlock, Mycroft and ‘the other one’. Could there be another Holmes brother?

As Planet Earth anxiously awaits the next series of Sherlock, could it be that there might be another Holmes in the family that we don’t know about?

Bill Nighy returning in the Worricker trilogy on PBS this Fall

While there will be the inevitable comparison to the Cornetto Trilogy, the Worricker Trilogy may just have a minor leg up given the greatness of Bill Nighy and Christopher Walken. As we reported earlier this month, The Worricker Trilogy, which began with Page Eight, is set to continue with Bill Nighy reprising his role as […]

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. Now, you have Tom Ellis, who is finding that his new role in the upcoming USA Network […]
