'Me & Mrs Jones' dropped after one series by BBC One

10 December 2012 3:54 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

BBC One comedy Me & Mrs Jones will not return for a second series. Writer Oriane Messina confirmed the show's axe on Twitter, blaming the cancellation on disappointing audience numbers. "We just didn't get the ratings we needed," Messina wrote. "Tough time slot didn't help but we know lots of you loved it." Me & Mrs Jones starred Sarah Alexander as single mother Gemma Jones, with Neil Morrissey, Nathaniel Parker and Robert Sheehan playing the three men in her life. In a message to the show's fans, Messina added: "Your support has been amazing, making the show trend and being so loyal, thank you. BBC One is a tough nut to crack." The series debuted with 3.13m viewers in October, but (more) »

Rewind TV: Order and Disorder; Me and Mrs Jones; Hebburn; Fresh Meat – review

20 October 2012 4:14 PM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Order and Disorder put a positive spin on the end of the universe, while Fresh Meat was the week's only winning comedy

Order and Disorder (BBC4) | iPlayer

Me and Mrs Jones (BBC1) | iPlayer

Hebburn (BBC2) | iPlayer

Fresh Meat (C4) | 4oD

In a dismal week of scheduling – never mind viewing – one of the few bright stars in the television firmament was Order and Disorder with Jim Al-Khalili. With minimal fuss and the kind of travel budget that wouldn't get Brian Cox past the credit sequence, Professor Al-Khalili turned the establishment of the laws of thermodynamics into a captivating scientific tale.

The first law, as you may recall, holds that energy is not created or destroyed – it just changes form. And the second and infinitely more pessimistic law maintains that energy tends to disperse, from physical unity towards fragmented chaos. Which is to say that the universe is slowly coming apart and »

Red Dwarf: 5 Best Episodes

11 October 2012 12:21 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Tonight sees the continuation of the first full series of Red Dwarf for thirteen years. Harkening back to the character dynamic of Series Six, senile shipboard computer Holly is absent and the main cast consists of the core four: curry loving slob Dave Lister (Craig Charles), cowardly and officious hologram Arnold Rimmer (Chris Barrie), the well dressed but self-absorbed Cat (Danny John-Jules), and insecure robot Kryten (Robert Llewellyn). So in celebration of Red Dwarf X, we count down the programme’s top five episodes…

 

5. Stoke Me A Clipper – Series Seven Episode Two

Series Seven and Eight are sort of the black sheep of Red Dwarf. The majority of fans regard them with a certain amount of disdain and the general consensus is that Series Seven is where everything went downhill thanks to the departure of co-creator Rob Grant, and Rimmer being replaced with a parallel version of Lister’s former love interest Kristine Kochanski. »

Wonderland: I Was Once a Beauty Queen

9pm, BBC2

The Miss Great Britain beauty pageants of the 1970s and 80s may look unspeakable nowadays (or at least "a bit naff"), but in their heyday they pulled in millions. This fine, reflective documentary finds out what happened to the winners, now older and wiser; former beauty queens such as Madeleine Stringer (Miss UK 1977) who in reply to the question "And what are you going to be when you grow up?" told a leering, diminutive host: "I don't know … what are you going to be when you grow up?"
