Ophelia Lovibond to join cast of ‘Elementary’ for 2014

When it comes to the never-ending comparisons between the BBC/PBS version of Sherlock and its American counterpart, CBS’ Elementary, the old adage of imitation is the sincerest form of flattery rings very true. When Elementary hit the air, Sherlock had already been a staple in people’s homes around the world for two years. The imitation/coindicence […]

Father Brown gets back on his bike for series 3

The hugely successful crime drama Father Brown, based on the stories by GK Chesterton, has begun filming series 3 in the Cotswolds. The BBC One Daytime series, produced in collaboration with BBC Worldwide, will return in 2015 with 15 episodes starring Mark Williams as the crime-solving Roman Catholic priest, Father Brown. Also returning will be […]

Did you catch the ‘Doctor Who’ Easter-egg in ‘Sherlock’ credits?

Periodically, you run across things on the Internets that make you realize there are people who have jobs where they have more fun than the law allows. You are also so thankful for those individuals because of what they create. Such is the case with Sherlock co-creators/writers Mark Gatiss and current Doctor Who show runner, […]

Rupert Graves joins cast for ‘Last Tango in Halifax 3′

In years past, fans of a British comedy or drama series would traditionally be left hanging for months not knowing whether or not their favorite series would be commissioned for another season or be unceremoniously axed for no apparent reason. With few exceptions, the fate of most series are not known when the final episode […]

Behind-the-scenes with ‘Mapp and Lucia’ from BBC

Three E.F. Benson novels about upper-middle-class British people in the 1920s and 1930s, vying for social prestige and “one-upmanship” in an atmosphere of extreme cultural snobbery, known simply as Mapp and Lucia, has begun filming at Lamb House in Rye, East Sussex, the original inspiration for Benson’s fictional seaside town of Tilling. Based on Benson’s […]

“I see into your soul, Doctor” says a familiar voice

We’re a mere 48 days away from the beginning of the Peter Capaldi era at the helm of the TARDIS. Even though we are now well under two months from the 23 August premiere, sadly, it will seem like an eternity, especially with every day going by having a new teaser trailer introduced to suck […]

Just “What” and “Who” is this Endeavour person?

If, for some unexplainable reason, you are just this minute jumping on the Endeavour bandwagon and wondering just “What is Endeavour?” or, you are flipping through the 57 channels coming to the realization that Bruce Springsteen had it right back in 1992 and you stop on PBS and ask yourself, “What is Endeavour?“, have we […]

‘Death Comes to Pemberley’ comes to PBS in October

Another day, another ‘Masterpiece’ on PBS. This time, it’s Death Comes to Pemberley, starring Matthew Rhys (The Americans), Anna Maxwell Martin (Bletchley Circle), Jenna Coleman (Doctor Who) and Matthew Goode (The Good Wife). Based on the book by P.D. James, which is a murder mystery continuation of the events of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice, […]

A first look at “Gracepoint” with an ‘American’ David Tennant

Ok, it’s a bit odd to hear the greatness of David Tennant with an American accent, but it works. Did I feel the same way when I first heard that Martin Freeman had signed on to star in the FX series, Fargo? Definitely, but it worked to perfection too with Martin doing a spot-on Minnesotan […]

Game on! Sherlock returns to 221b Baker Street in 2015!

What a difference a day makes! Seems like it was just 24 hours ago that the old adage of “no news is good news” was applicable to any anticipated return of the world’s most famous consulting detective. Now comes the best new of 2014 so far from the BBC.   “Miss me?” Sherlock Returns Sherlock, […]
