War comes to Middle Earth as Benedict and Martin square off

With a release date of mid-December in both the U.S. and the UK, the recently released at Comic-Con trailer for the final chapter in Peter Jackson’s trilogy, The Hobbit: The Battle of Five Armies, is about as close you can get to trailer gold. It’s WWE at it’s finest as Middle Earth’s favorite dragon, Smaug […]

Final chapter of Hercule Poirot begins July 27 on PBS’ Masterpiece Mystery

Not wanting to put the cart before the horse given that PBS Masterpiece Mystery fans still have the final episode of series 2 of “Endeavour” starring Shaun Evans to look forward to tonight, but this warrants more than a week’s notice. Next Sunday on PBS marks the beginning of the final chapter in David Suchet’s […]

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 […]

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, […]

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 […]

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 […]
