Cold Feet: Where are the cast of ITV's hit series now?

25 August 2015 11:42 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Is ITV really going to bring back Cold Feet?

That's the rumour, with the broadcaster apparently looking to plug the Downton-shaped hole in its schedule with a revival of the popular comedy-drama.

If it's true, they'll have a job bringing the cast back together - some have gone on to be huge telly and film stars, while others have stepped out of the spotlight entirely...

James Nesbitt

Nesbitt's carefree lothario Adam Williams met his match in Helen Baxendale's Rachel - the couple overcame infidelity and infertility but were denied lasting happiness when Rachel was killed in a traffic accident.

Since Cold Feet wrapped, Nesbitt has become one of British television's most in-demand leading men.

He fronted BBC One's gritty cop series Murphy's Law from 2003-07, led Steven Moffat's supernatural thriller Jekyll - also in 2007 - and played the title character in ITV's short-lived medical drama Monroe (2011-12).

Oh. My. Gaaaaawwwwwdddddd. Paul McCartney almost guest starred on Friends. This is not a drill. Paul McCartney. From The Beatles. Almost guest starred. On Friends! This is brand new information! When the iconic sitcom's Emmy-nominated casting director Leslie Litt spoke to the Huffington Post, she revealed that she had tried extremely hard to get The Beatles musician to come on the show for a very specific role. Remember the one with the wedding in London? You know, that disastrous ceremony where Ross (David Schwimmer) said his lobster Rachel's (Jennifer Aniston) name instead of his bride Emily's (Helen Baxendale) name? Yeah, Litt wanted McCartney to play Ross' »

Cuckoo: How it became BBC Three's biggest show

27 May 2015 7:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

In 2012, it became BBC Three's biggest ever sitcom, and in 2015, a third series was announced - but the path to success for Cuckoo has been far from smooth.

After a first series delivered record-breaking ratings, the show lost its star (more on that later) - but it emerged rejuvenated two years on, its second run charming audiences all over again.

Cuckoo - the story of an eccentric bohemian who infiltrates a straight-laced, middle-class family - was devised by writing partnership Robin French and Kieron Quirke as a vehicle for a Us comedian.

When the project materialised, American actor and comic Andy Samberg was cast in the title role, alongside a cast which included Greg Davies as the uptight Ken and Helen Baxendale as his wife Lorna.

BBC Three was on a hot streak at the time, with the Cuckoo series premiere beating a ratings record only set the previous month »

Cuckoo - the story of an eccentric bohemian who infiltrates a straight-laced, middle-class family - was originally devised by writing partnership Robin French and Kieron Quirke as a vehicle for Us comedian Rob Schneider, who was contemplating a move to the UK.

When the project finally materialised, Schneider was no longer attached - with another American actor and comic, Andy Samberg, cast in the title role, alongside a cast which included Greg Davies as the uptight Ken and Helen Baxendale as his wife Lorna.

Cardiac Arrest – box set review: a shocking portrait of hospital life

26 February 2015 8:00 AM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Line of Duty creator, Jed Mercurio, is back with new a medical drama, Critical. Will it measure up to his first in the genre, which astonished viewers with its tales of euthanasia, bullying and incompetence on the wards?

Long before Jed Mercurio was celebrated as the man behind dark police corruption drama Line of Duty, he made his name with another equally brooding show: Cardiac Arrest, which aired on BBC1 in the mid-1990s. Written (under the pseudonym John MacUre) when Mercurio was still working as a junior doctor at Drumchapel hospital in Glasgow, the series follows a group of sleep-deprived, stressed-out junior doctors as they cope with everything from bullying consultants and officious managers to surly nurses and patients too sick to save.

“Prolonging a patient’s death isn’t the same as prolonging his life,” the ice-cool Dr Claire Maitland (a career-best performance from Helen Baxendale) tells the »
