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, […]

No Sherlock until 2016…unless Christmas comes early in 2015

While it is certainly something that most all of us probably already knew, it just makes it all the more difficult to grasp when you hear it directly from one of the co-creators. There is no joy in Mudville today as it’s looking more and more likely that the world’s greatest consulting detective, Sherlock Holmes, […]

It’s…Monty Python’s The Ministry of Silly Walks game app

Depending on when you read this, the world is approximately 24-36 hours away from the return of Monty Python’s Flying Circus at London’s O2 Arena. On Tuesday, 1 July, as the troupe gets the band back together for one last gig, those that were lucky enough to secure tickets before the :45 sellout, will attempt […]

At last! The first video glimpse of Downton Abbey 5…sort of.

Sometimes, I feel like Downton Abbey is more like Moriarty than we think….stay with me here.   Miss Me? For Downton Abbey fans in the U.S., it is now day 125 since we last visited the Crawley family and were left wondering if Mr. Gregson would be found, who might Lady Mary end up with […]

Mr. Bates leaves prison for organized crime in ‘Spotless’

One of the greatest things about British television AND one of the most maddening for viewers is the fact that the number of episodes in a series is limited. Unlike their American television counterparts, most British drama and/or comedy series are anywhere between 6-10 episodes max. In some cases like Sherlock or DCI Banks there are only three episodes each season. Three brilliant films but still only three. On the upside, this allows viewers to see their favorite actors in other roles, many times crossing over from drama to comedy or vice versa.

First look at ‘The Imitation Game’ with Benedict Cumberbatch and Keira Knightley

The work of Codebreakers living in Bletchley Park huts and blocks that were built to last only a few years have routinely been credited with shortening World War II by at least two years. What started out in 1938 as a relatively innocent in appearance gathering of members of MI6 and the Government Code and […]

Sequel to the Five (ish) Doctors Special in the works

Almost completely overlooked amidst all the Doctor Who 50th anniversary hoopla was a brilliant little feature called The Five (ish) Doctors Reboot. The special, which originally aired around the 50th celebration last November, followed Fifth, Sixth and Seventh Doctors Peter Davison, Colin Baker and Sylvester McCoy as they attempted to land a role in the […]

Sherlock actress moving from Baker Street to Ripper Street…temporarily.

In keeping with the tradition of the entire cast of Sherlock actors making maximum use of their downtime during the maddening but understandable hiatus between series, Louise Brealey will soon be following in the footsteps of series stars Benedict Cumberbatch, Martin Freeman, Andrew Scott, Mark Gatiss, Una Stubbs and Rupert Graves by taking on other […]
