Morfydd Clark joins Dan Stevens in 'The Man Who Invented Christmas'

1 February 2017 12:28 AM, PST | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Screen International Star Of Tomorrow Morfydd Clark has joined The Man Who Invented Christmas.

The project, based on Les Standiford’s book, imagines how Charles Dickens created his iconic story A Christmas Carol and stars Dan Stevens as the author.

Clark will play his wife and joins Christopher Plummer (as Scrooge) and Jonathan Pryce (as Dickens’ father) in the cast.

Bharat Nalluri (Miss Pettigrew Lives For A Day) directs from a script by Susan Coyne (Mozart In The Jungle).

The story begins in October 1843 when Charles Dickens was broke. Despite early success, his last three books had failed. Rejected by his publishers, he sets out to write and self-publish a book which he hopes will keep his family afloat. After six fever-pitched weeks, he created A Christmas Carol.

Clark recently appeared in Love And Friendship and Pride And Prejudice And Zombies. She also played Cordelia opposite Glenda Jackson in the »

Taboo Season 1 Episode 4 Review: League of the Damned

31 January 2017 8:25 PM, PST | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

The gauntlet has been thrown down: will Delaney accept? What the hell do you think? 

In the action packed Taboo Season 1 Episode 4, the big challenge of a duel from that uber dick Thorne was the crescendo, but we'll have to wait a week to see if Delaney takes the bait.

I challenge James Delaney to a duel. At dawn. To the death. Do you accept? Do You Accept?

Thorne Permalink: I challenge James Delaney to a duel. At dawn. To the death. Do you accept? Do You Accept? Added: January 29, 2017

I expect he will, and we will have a magnificently shot duel scene at dawn, in a fog shrouded field, in beautiful slow motion. But this isn't a lock by any means.

Given how the Americans have kindly offered to waste Thorne, Delaney might just take them up on it.

Just think about that for a minute. If the Americans do the deed, »

Taboo episode 4 review

27 January 2017 3:48 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Louisa Mellor Jan 28, 2017

At pains to prove that it isn’t your grandma’s period drama, Taboo delivers its most compelling but problematic episode yet…

This review contains spoilers.

So, the rumours were all true. Not only is James Delaney an invincible cannibal warrior, he’s also a legit wizard. After three episodes of dancing around it, Taboo took a two-footed leap into the supernatural realm this week by showing Delaney rape his sleeping sister via the astral plane. Zilpha being shown to have enjoyed James “breaking in” would ordinarily be the point I’d tell a TV show to do one, but as I’m here until the bitter end, let’s get into it.

To take a charitable approach, Taboo could be seen to be travelling a well-worn route in colonial fiction by showing Zilpha’s body to be contested territory. She is Nootka Sound, property over which »

The White King movie review: a boy’s-eye view on dystopia

26 January 2017 2:26 PM, PST | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

MaryAnn’s quick take… This sad mess of a vaguely sci-fi coming-of-age tale seemingly could not be more plugged into current fears, and yet it feels utterly irrelevant. I’m “biast” (pro): I’m a big science fiction fan

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

I have not read the source material

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

I really wanted to like The White King, but oh, what a sad mess of a film! This tale — of a boy living in a dictatorship who sees his father dragged away to prison as a dissident and his mother crumbling under the strain of trying to pretend everything is okay — seemingly could not be more plugged into current fears, and yet it feels utterly irrelevant.

The first mistake first-time screenwriters and directors Alex Helfrecht and Jörg Tittel make is in choosing to move the action of György Dragomán’s acclaimed novel, »

Taboo Season 1 Episode 3 Review: Spy vs. Spy

25 January 2017 11:08 AM, PST | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

We've all heard the old phrase "For all the tea in China." Well, now we know what all the hubbub is about!

We get a hint of Delaney's endgame in Taboo Season 1 Episode 3, and it is an extreme bit of revenge on good ol' East India. 

While it seems like a letdown that Delaney is just after a monopoly of the tea route to China (it couldn't be just about money, right?), it is really a super sized f*ck you to Strange and East India for whatever they did to him back in the day.

Dumbarton: So what do you want?

Delaney: Tea.

Dumbarton: Tea?

Delaney: You tell Carlsbad that I want tea.

Dumbarton: You know, Carlsbad said that Delaney might just be crazy enough to take us all on: The King, the Company, and the free 15. Maybe she was right.

The White King Review

23 January 2017 7:32 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Stefan Pape

 

The paramount obstacle for filmmakers to overcome when introducing the viewer to a whole new world with a new set of rules to comprehend, is to have them invest, emotionally, and engage with the hypothetical narrative at hand, to comfortably inhabit this foreign environment and abide by it. In Alex Helfrecht and Jorg Tittel’s The White King that much is a given, as they build this dystopian near-future with a minimum contrivance, and have us compelled.

Based on Gyorgy Dragoman’s novel, we meet the Fitz family, as Hannah (Agyness Deyn) and husband Peter (Ross Partridge) play freely with their young son Djata (Lorenzo Allchurch). But any such liberation is short-lived, as Peter is taken away by the law enforcement, accused of being a traitor to the brutal, unforgiving dictatorship they live within. Imprisoned and with a slim chance of release, Djata and his mother are »

'Taboo' vs. 'Frontier': Who Wins the Battle of TV Tough-Guy Dramas?

21 January 2017 7:55 AM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Television and movie producers have a weird habit of doubling-up on big ideas, delivering two projects with more or less the same basic concept at roughly the same time. For no apparent reason, we'll get hit with a couple of "giant space rock threatens to destroy the Earth" blockbusters in the same summer; or a pair of "behind the scenes at a late-night comedy series" in the same fall TV season. So perhaps it's not that odd that FX and Netflix are about to serve up competing historical adventures, both »

Taboo episode 3 review

The enemies and the taboos keep stacking up for Delaney in the latest episode of the BBC’s lurid period melodrama…

This review contains spoilers.

See related  The Walking Dead: win prizes with Sky! The Walking Dead season 7 episode 8 review: Hearts Still Beating

A tea trading monopoly? That’s what all this trouble is over? James Delaney has been fighting assassins, getting stabbed in the gut and making enemies in Regency society’s upper ranks all because he wants to open the UK’s first branch of Whittard.

Well, at least we know.

Aside from riling up everyone he crosses paths with, Delaney’s motivations have been tricky to discern until now. Realising that he’s essentially a Dragon’s Den contestant trying to play the Americans off the British for the biggest investment in his China-based start-up makes him a more accessible lead.

There’s more to it, »

Taboo Season 1 Episode 2 Review: Rogue's Gallery

17 January 2017 9:17 PM, PST | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

We got some answers in addition to questions, questions, and more questions. Plus a nasty cliffhanger to boot!

In a crackling, suspenseful Taboo Season 1 Episode 2, we start to see a few dents in the mighty armor of James Delaney, and the show is much the better for it. 

I never expected to end the episode with Delaney collapsed on the cobblestones, a pig sticker in his gut, and I was pleasantly surprised, frankly.

Up to this point, he was a one man apocalypse, the unstoppable force.

I said in my Taboo premiere review that it would make the show much more compelling to have him a little vulnerable at times. Well, that's just what we got. 

This episode made me think of Delaney as a 19th century version of Clint Eastwood's "Man With No Name" character from his spaghetti western days, assembling a team of slimy minions to do his bidding, »

How to Identify the Four 'Peak Tom Hardy' Types

17 January 2017 9:46 AM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

He's created a series of performances that have taken advantage of his intensity, his brutish physique and his way around a multi-syllable sentence – and now, Tom Hardy has somehow created a role for himself that feels more Tom Hardy than almost anything else he's done. In Taboo, the new FX series the actor co-created with father Chips Hardy and Peaky Blinders showrunner Steven Knight, he plays gruff protagonist James Delaney, an early 19th-century explorer who returns home to London to find out he's inherited land sought after by the East India Company. »

Taboo review – Tom Hardy brings extra swagger to Regency London

15 January 2017 11:20 PM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

The BBC’s new historical drama is seductive and atmospheric, if completely baffling. Plus: Freddie Flintoff makes for an affable travel companion

Ah yes, we didn’t get to Taboo (BBC1, Sunday) last week because of The Voice and How Do You Solve a Problem Like Gary Barlow (Aka Let It Shine). And because I wasn’t entirely sure what it was all about or what the hell was going on. Accompanied by a spooky soundtrack, James Delaney (Tom Hardy, being menacing with his voice and the bottom half of his face because the top half was invisible in the shade of his top hat) rode into Regency London on a white horse and put the fear of God into people.

Only his half-sister Zilpha (Oona Chaplin) seemed pleased to see him, maybe because she also used to be his girlfriend; I assumed the boy was the son/nephew and »

Do you know something? Stabbed in the gut as he is, I think James Keziah Delaney might just make it. We are, after all, only on episode two of eight. If Tom Hardy’s character bled to death on a cobbled street at this stage in proceedings, everybody else on Taboo would have to pack up and go home.
