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? Our first introduction to there being another member of Sherlock’s family came when older brother, Mycroft Holmes (played by series co-creator and writer, Mark Gatiss), kidnaps John and […]

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 […]

‘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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Post-Fargo, Martin Freeman heads to West End to play Richard III

Shakespeare’s Richard III. Seems like a logical next step after Fargo, right? Not sure Martin Freeman will be pulling much from his performance as Lester Nygaard but he will be following in the footsteps of fellow Sherlock co-star, Benedict Cumberbatch, and head to the Trafalgar Studios in London’s West End beginning this summer to tackle […]

‘Sherlock’ tops Captain America’s “to-do” list in the UK

This is beyond cool. After missing nearly 70 years of pop culture due to being frozen in ice, Captain America has a lot of catching up to do. With so much to do and so little time to do it in, the iconic Marvel superhero was going to need a lot of help. We all […]

BBC 2′s Line of Duty commissioned for third series

As if I needed yet another reason to solidify my belief that the UK invented good telly. Put aside Hustle, MI5, Life on Mars, Endeavour and Call the Midwife for a minute and take a look at Line of Duty. The police procedural from BBC2 premiered in 2012 and quickly became the BBC2′s best-performing drama […]

First pics from the set of ‘Downton Abbey 5′ begin to trickle in

Aside from the fact that new seasons of both Call the Midwife and Mr. Selfridge premiered last night on PBS, most telly drama lovers will readily admit to liking this time of the year as behind-the-scenes bits from the set of Downton Abbey start to trickle in. The great Richard E. Grant (Girls, Gosford Park, […]
