TV catch-up guide: from Line Of Duty to Check It Out!

Line Of Duty | Looking | Live From Space | Stewart Lee's Comedy Vehicle | Check It Out! With Dr Steve Brule

TV: Line Of Duty

Unbelievable as it might seem, there was a time when doubts were expressed over whether a second series of Line Of Duty could work without the brooding presence of Lennie James. Then Keeley Hawes (pictured, right) rocked up as conflicted Di Lindsay Denton. Clive James thinks Hawes will win "every award going" for her performance, while the Guide's Paul MacInnes reckons Denton "might be the best character to emerge from a British drama in years". Sure, sure, but is she guilty? Find out by catching the second series in full on the iPlayer, where it will remain until Wednesday.

Have you been watching … Stewart Lee's Comedy Vehicle?

21 March 2014 2:41 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

The casting of Chris Morris in the third series has made a brilliant show even better. But do you adore or abhor clever clogs comedian Stewart Lee?

If you have been watching this weekly half hour of droll polemic (now in its third glorious series), you're either a dedicated fan of the standup comedian Stewart Lee or you hate his smug, sing-song delivery and smirking repetition and you just enjoy being angry. There seldom seems to be a middle ground where Lee's concerned.

Like the first two series of Comedy Vehicle, this one takes segments of low-lit standup in front of a club audience and punctuates them with often avant garde VTs exploring an idea that comes from his monologue. In the first series, and to a lesser extent the second, this used to take the form of elaborate sketches featuring usual collaborators such as Kevin Eldon and Simon Munnery. »

Harry Enfield and Paul Whitehouse are to reunite for a one-off TV special.

Characters including Gerald Manley Paxman, John Cleese-Shop-Sketch, Mark Egghead, Germaine Dreary and Russell Somebody will also appear.

Enfield said: "BBC Two gave me my big solo break with Harry Enfield's Television Programme almost 25 years ago. They have been loyal to us over decades. We therefore felt it was only right »

New ‘Cuban Fury’ Clip, Featurettes & Poster

3 February 2014 7:42 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Always a pleasure to see gracing the silver screen, the brilliant and hilarious Nick Frost steps away from pals Simon Pegg and Edgar Wright to dance his way into director James Griffiths’ Latin-fused musical comedy Cuban Fury. The British funny man, best known for his roles in the ace Cornetto trilogy, stars as the under-confident and overweight Bruce Garrett and whose love for hot-stepping salsa dancing now lays dormant. However, when he learns his beautiful new boss (played by Rashida Jones) shares the same passion, he finds that romantic spark reignited… if he can beat off competition from work colleague Chris O’Dowd.

Cuban Fury dances into UK cinemas from the 14th February. Check out this latest clip, featurettes and poster for the film co-starring Olivia Colman, Ian McShane, Alexandra RoachRory Kinnear, Steve OramKevin Eldon and Kayvan Novak.

Nick Frost’s Hot-Stepping To Laughs & Love In New ‘Cuban Fury’ Trailer & Spot

18 January 2014 8:23 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Despite sounding like the sub-title to a sequel of Brian DePalma’s gangster classic Carlito’S Way, Nick Frost’s latest film, Cuban Fury, is in fact an outrageous romantic comedy co-starring Irish funny man Chris O’Dowd. The comedic geniuses are set to fight for the affections of their new boss – played by Rashida Jones – with Frost’s overweight office worker Bruce finding his early teen latin fire reignited when learning she loves to salsa dance!

Check out the second trailer for the film directed by Episodes regular James Griffiths.

1987: Poised to sweep the floor at the UK Junior Salsa Championships, 13-year-old Bruce Garrett has fire in his heels and the world at his feet… Until a freakish bullying incident robs him of his confidence and his life is diverted down a very different path.
