Watch: Trailer for Conservationist Romantic Comedy 'Scottish Mussel'

"Scallops. You've got a bath full of scallops." Check out this quirky trailer for a very odd indie comedy called Scottish Mussel, which is an awkward play on words considering this is a romantic comedy and yet it's also about mussels, meaning molluscs. Scottish Mussel is the directorial debut of actress Talulah Riley, who also stars in the film as the conservationist beauty who falls for an an illegal pearl fisher. Martin Compston plays a "Glaswegian chancer" who head to the Scottish Highlands to make money diving for pearls with his two friends. The romance angle is extremely cliched, with the obvious aspect of the two of them hating each other before she convinces him that mussels are worth saving. The cast includes Morgan Watkins, Joe Thomas, Harry Enfield, Rufus Hound, Camille Coduri & Marianna Palka. Dive in. Here's the official trailer (+ UK poster) for Talulah Riley's Scottish Mussel, direct

‘Flim: The Movie’ Review

Stars: Raffaello Degruttola, Steven Waddington, Rebecca Atkinson, Jody Marriott Bar-Lev, Kacey Barnfield, Camille Coduri, Josh Cohen, Shelley Conn, Collette Cooper, Dan Davies, Skye Lucia Degruttola, Simone Lahbib, David Elliot, Sadie Frost, Christopher Fulford, Abhin Galeya | Written and Directed by Raffaello Degruttola

Flim The Movie is a very clever, very funny mockumentary. It was a surprise hit at Raindance Film Festival 2014 and despite a low budget and miniscule marketing spend found itself nominated for a British Independent Film Award alongside big hitters like Calvary and The Imitation Game. The story centres around a hapless, wannabe Bollywood director called Ravi (played by Raffaello Degruttola). He claims to have made at least one short film back in India and has come to the UK to make his first feature film. Capturing this is the Nick Broomfield-cum-Louis Theroux documentarian Scott (played by Steven Waddington).

As well as star in it, Degruttola produced and directed it.

Noel Clarke on The Anomaly: 'I'm reaching for the stars'

Noel Clarke on The Anomaly: 'I'm reaching for the stars'
Four years after his last directorial outing 4321, Noel Clarke steps back into the director's chair for The Anomaly - a high-concept sci-fi thriller that star Ian Somerhalder has dubbed "The Bourne Identity meets Memento".

As if calling the shots wasn't demanding enough, Clarke also takes on the lead role, playing a soldier who only experiences consciousness for 9 minutes and 47 seconds at a time. It's dizzying for his protagonist, and for the audience along for the ride too. Digital Spy sat down with Clarke to discuss making the film, throwing in Doctor Who cameos and why he's still reaching for the stars.

The Anomaly is the first film you've directed that you haven't written the script for - what was it about Simon Lewis's story that hooked you in?

I just really liked the fact that Simon had written something that could be quite high concept, but at the same

Dr Who: films of Peter Davison, Colin Baker, Sylvester McCoy

Feature Alex Westthorp 16 Apr 2014 - 07:00

Alex's trek through the film roles of actors who've played the Doctor reaches Peter Davison, Colin Baker and Sylvester McCoy...

Read the previous part in this series, Doctor Who: the film careers of Patrick Troughton and Tom Baker, here.

In March 1981, as he made his Doctor Who debut, Peter Davison was already one the best known faces on British television. Not only was he the star of both a BBC and an ITV sitcom - Sink Or Swim and Holding The Fort - but as the young and slightly reckless Tristan Farnon in All Creatures Great And Small, about the often humorous cases of Yorkshire vet James Herriot and his colleagues, he had cemented his stardom. The part led, indirectly, to his casting as the venerable Time Lord.

The recently installed Doctor Who producer, John Nathan-Turner, had been the Production Unit Manager on

Edge of Heaven – review

This seaside drama set in an 80s-themed guesthouse is comedy? You're having a laugh

"I'm gagging for it," Camp Gary says to his boyfriend, Bald Gary, from the double bed they share. "Fine," says Bald Gary, undoing his dressing gown and getting in.

And you're expecting them to start doing, you know, it, right? Ah, but you're wrong. Camp Gary's not gagging for that; he – they – are gagging to watch episode six of season five of True Blood, the Us vampire drama. Which they do in bed, with snacks and drinks (Cabernet Sauvignon or Blue Nun, depending on who's on drinks duty).

That's how a lot of the gags – in fact, most of the gags – go in Edge of Heaven (ITV), this new seaside comedy drama. You think it's about this, but actually it's that. Hahahahaha.

Sarah Solemani: what I learned from Him & Her

As BBC3's popular sitcom comes to an end, its lead actor reflects on four series of eating chips in bed

1 Comedy is a delicate art

Like most of the British public, my nights are frequently spent hollering at the telly, "How In God's Good Name Is This Allowed To Exist!?" I've seen good scripts ruined in the process of production. Broadcaster interference is often blamed but, truthfully, anyone can threaten the success of a show. Comedy is such a delicate art; numerous elements have to be mystically blended into one cohesive vision. One dud turn – the wrong set, a bit of odd casting, a director looking for "big" when he should be finding "small", a bad wig – and the whole animal dies a painful, squirming death. Whether it's your cup of tea or not, most people agree that Him & Her is quality stuff. That is down to the united team behind the camera: writer,

Doctor Who Ally Profile: Jackie Tyler

  • SoundOnSight
Jackie Tyler

Portrayed by: Camille Coduri

Doctor: Ninth Doctor, Tenth Doctor

Story: 4 stories, from “The Parting of the Ways” (June, 2005) to “Journey’s End” (July, 2008), though she appears in several other stories as Rose’s mother or Pete’s wife, separate from the adventure of the week.

Background: Jackie is the single mother of the teenaged Rose when her life is turned upside down by Rose joining the Doctor in the Tardis. She ends up embroiled in several of the Doctor’s adventures. Despite her (comparatively) lengthy association with the series, we know very little about her outside of her relationship with her daughter.

Family/Friends: Jackie married Pete Tyler and the two had a somewhat contentious relationship, despite caring for each other deeply. When Rose was a baby, Pete died after being hit by a car. An adult version of Rose was there at the time and held Pete while he passed,

Creep Out Your Ears by Listening to ‘Hammer Chillers’

Hammer made a nice little comeback last year with The Woman in Black. While I wasn’t the hugest fan of the film, I dug the atmosphere it brought to audiences. It also felt like British Horror, something I admired even more. Hammer has created six audio dramas that vary from 30 to 45 minutes each and will be released in a digipack later this week. If you order the digipack, you will get the audio files immediately. You can also buy the tracks individually if you want to give one of them a listen. Between this and Tales from Beyond the Pale, it’s nice to see horror audio making a comeback. We have included toggles below which include synopses & links below.

Doctor Who: 25 stories that deserve more love

Cameron K McEwan Aug 16, 2016

Cameron sings the praises of 25 classic and modern Doctor Who adventures that went underappreciated. See what made the cut below...

Doctor Who fans can be an odd bunch at times (and by that I mean all the time), what's gold to one is dross to another. And when you think everyone is agreed on a genuine stinker (Timelash, for example), you'll find it has admirers in abundance. But what's here are some of the stories that, for whatever reason, get overlooked, underseen and, perhaps, undervalued - in no particular order.

The Awakening

Two-parters often get forgotten about (in classic Doctor Who at any rate) and this Peter Davison story, whilst perhaps best known to Who fans for a famous blooper featuring a horse, has some tremendous imagery and beautiful location shooting. Best of all is the villain of the piece, The Malus, who put the willies

Using the new Doctor Who Limited Edition Gift Set, your noble author will make his way through as much of the modern series as he can before the Christmas episode,The Snowmen.

If Lars von Trier had thought of it, it would have been one of the Five Obstructions. Make a Doctor Who episode, but don’t use The Doctor. It rather limits the drama, doesn’t it? far from it, it gives you a chance to do a story about friends and mystery, and…

Elton Pope (Not that Elton, and not that Pope) is relating his adventures on his video blog. He’s just met The Doctor, who was fighting an alien in a disused industrial building…as he does.

'Doctor Who' review: 'The Power of Three' shows why Amy Pond and Rory Williams can't say goodbye

We knew going into this episode of "Doctor Who" that we'd be watching the penultimate appearance of Karen Gillan and Arthur Darvill as the Doctor's companions Amy Pond and Rory Williams. And we knew the title -- "The Power of Three" -- promised something special. This would be a hour devoted to Amy, Rory and The Doctor coming together to solve a crisis, right?

Surely we'd see how each of them have an important role to play in a storyline that delivers on the title's implicit promise: Three is better than one, or two. We'd nod our heads and think, "Yes, the Doctor is at his best with these companions." Because they're the companions we're watching right now, we love them dearly, and we're at the emotional high point of our relationship with them. We know they're going to leave, but we don't yet know how it will happen.

Doctor Who Gallifrey One Convention Review

This weekend I made my first trip to the 23rd installment of Gallifrey One – a Doctor Who convention held annually in La – and it was nothing short of Outstanding. The defining characteristic of this event is that it is 100% fan-run. This means every staff member and volunteer is participating out of sheer love and enjoyment of the series, and it shows in every detail of the programming. Chairman Robbie Bourget and his team planned a fantastic convention with an enormous variety of interviews, discussion panels and screenings.

The charm of this convention goes beyond the quality of programming. Just as important to the overall experience is the character of the fans. I am pleased to say I have never been surrounded by so many friendly, enthusiastic, and kind people that I immediately felt a connection with. This inclusive, family-friendly atmosphere was in no way diminished by a record-breaking attendance of 3,183 people.

Doctor Who Gallifrey One La Convention Preview

This is a big weekend for Whovians in the U.S with the Gallifrey One convention (#gally) taking place in La.

In it’s 23rd year this convention is pretty much as official as it gets ‘across the pond’ (no Pond intended) and has seen a huge swell of interest thanks to the intense promotional work and focus on American Who fandom since we first saw The Impossible Astronaut in 2011.

While not an “official” convention like the one to be held in Cardiff in late March, this one is crammed with guests that will interest both classic and current series fans (thought not Matt Smith and Karen Gillan as they are the primary focus of the official convention). Firstly, the day is being billed as a 1996 TV movie reunion with 8th Doctor Paul McGann reunited with Daphne Ashbrook, Yee Jee Tso, Eric Roberts and producer Philip Segal.

'Doctor Who' star Camille Coduri: 'I don't expect return to show'

'Doctor Who' star Camille Coduri: 'I don't expect return to show'
Camille Coduri has suggested that a return to Doctor Who is very unlikely. Coduri played Rose Tyler's (Billie Piper) mom Jackie in the first two series of Doctor Who and later returned for a series of guest appearances. Asked about appearing in Doctor Who again by Gay Times, the actress said that she doesn't think there's a real need for Jackie to be visited by The Doctor again. "I think that's done now. We've been back to say goodbye at least twice. You have to leave it in the past sometime really. And we left five years ago really, so it's quite a long time," Coduri explained. The star added: "People have moved on. If anyone asked me, of course I would, brilliant. It would be a great story to go back, but I think it's done and I (more)
