16 December 2014 1:00 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

2014 was a strong year for television, both at home and abroad, but now is the time to narrow down our favourites to only the choicest cuts.

These are Digital Spy's best TV shows for 2014 - continuing today with 20-16. Check back tomorrow for 15-11.

Digital Spy's best TV shows of the year 2014: 25-21

20. House of Cards

It may not have quite hit the highs of the first season - perhaps lacking a little of the heart provided by Corey Stoll's tragic Peter Russo last year - but House of Cards was still a captivating watch in 2014. Much has been made of the Netflix 'binge-watch' culture, but not every show could hold the viewer's attention across 13 straight episodes - this is one.

Its chief selling point remains Kevin Spacey's turn as the malevolent, magnificent Francis 'Frank' Underwood - by turns »

20 TV Shows to Watch While You Wait for 'Sherlock' to Return

2 December 2014 8:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

"Sherlock" may not return for its fourth season until -- say it ain't so -- 2017, due to the hectic film schedules of in-demand stars Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman. In the meantime, you can rewatch all three seasons and soon you can binge on Cumberbatch in "The Imitation Game" and Freeman in "The Hobbit: The Battle of Five Armies." But what then?

If you're craving more veddy British crime solving, you don't have far to look. Here are some of the best series the BBC (and ITV) has to offer, with private detectives, psychiatrists, cops, spies, and forensic pathologists all cracking cases, catching criminals and drinking lots of tea.

1. "Sherlock Holmes" (1984-1994)

If it's more Sherlock you crave (and not just Mr. Cumberbatch), then you must see Jeremy Brett's intensely intellectual (and equally arrogant) period-appropriate take on the legendary detective. This Watson is also solid, especially in "The House of the Baskervilles. »

First Photo: J.K. Rowling's "Casual Vacancy"

24 November 2014 4:24 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

"Spooks," "Ashes to Ashes" and former Lara Croft voice actress Keeley Hawes along with the most recent onscreen Miss Marple incarnation Julia McKenzie are the focus of the very first image from the upcoming mini-series "The Casual Vacancy".

The BBC & HBO co-production is based on "Harry Potter" author J.K. Rowling's first adult novel. Rowling is serving as an executive producer on the TV adaptation of her social satire set in a small town. Hawes plays a small business owner in a loveless marriage, McKenzie is her mother-in-law, and Gambon is McKenzie's philandering husband.

Set in a suburban West Country town, the story begins with the death of a beloved councillor and the conflict that ensues for his vacant seat. At the same time, children of some of the councillors and potential candidates decide to make some damaging posts on the Parish Council online forum.

New UK sci-fi and fantasy shows to look out for in 2015

20 November 2014 9:54 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Androids, magic, parallel worlds, ghostly crime, and the apocalypse. Here’s a raft of new forthcoming UK sci-fi and fantasy TV…

The superhero genre may be taking up residence in cinemas for the foreseeable, and Game Of Thrones and The Walking Dead are leading Us TV's genre output, but what can fans of UK sci-fi and fantasy look forward to seeing on television over the next year?

There’s Doctor Who of course, which appears to be in rude health and going nowhere, a Christmas Special from Black Mirror, and a hint of new Red Dwarf on its way. (And of course, if there’s anything like justice in the world, the terrific In The Flesh will be recommissioned for a third series.)

If though, you’re thirsting for something new, 2015 is promising to deliver a handful of geek TV gems. We’ve scoured the new UK commission announcements for anything spooky, »

BBC’s Tony Hall keeps Wolf Hall from the door with more free canapés | Media Monkey

20 November 2014 8:31 AM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

His Tonyship, Lord Director General (© W1A) has become something of a fixture at BBC programme launches of late – goodness knows, he’s nothing better to do. Tony Hall could be found dodging between the canapés again on Wednesday night at the corporation’s 2015 drama bash at The Clubhouse in London’s fashionable Mayfair (calm down Daily Mail, the rooms apparently only cost around £125 an hour to hire). Among those in attendence: Peter Capaldi, Michael Palin, Victoria Wood, Julia McKenzie, Mark Rylance and Keeley Hawes. Star-studded? Not ‘alf. In his speech Hall revealed he has been down to see how Wolf Hall is getting on. Not a modishly-named son of the director general’s, but the Beeb’s forthcoming adaptation of Hilary Mantel’s novel about a pragmatic man who tries to serve a British institution amid political manoeuvrings. Monkey wonders if he picked up any tips for charter renewal. »

Doctor Who complete reviews: Time Heist

11 October 2014 5:39 AM, PDT | Shadowlocked | See recent Shadowlocked news »

Did Zygon Sister Lamont and Zygon Caber have a bit of a relationship going on? There's a bit in Terror Of The Zygons Part Three when the dastardly duo pause to look forward to regressing back to their natural form – but Zygon Caber certainly seems to have an eye for a Zygon in nurse's uniform, tenderly leading Zygon Lamont with an arm around the shoulder.

Or how about the relationship between Mr and Mrs Axon? Now with two golden kids in tow, their relationship seems to be on the wane. Not a word is spoken between these two, and to make matters worse, Mrs Axon retreats into the wall with a harrumphing balloon blow-up. Clearly, Mr Axon is destined to be all alone on the plastic sofa this evening. Duping gullible bureaucrats may be a good gambit for taking over the world, but it sure plays havoc with the love life. »

Benedict Cumberbatch Is A Sexy Richard III In The Hollow Crown

3 October 2014 11:30 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

If all you have ever seen of Shakespeare’s Richard III is Laurence Olivier’s limping, leering, badly made-up monstrosity of a king, then you’re going to have to revise your idea of this most fabulous villain. Richard as Shakespeare wrote him may have been bad, and he may have been twisted, but in his newest iteration he’s far from unattractive. Given that he’s being played by Benedict Cumberbatch, that should hardly be surprising.

The actor has taken on the role of Richard in the BBC’s adaptation of the play as part of the final section of their series The Hollow Crown, which covers all of Shakespeare’s “War of the Roses” plays, beginning with Richard II. Cumberbatch is just the latest in a long line of excellent contemporary actors to take on parts in The Hollow Crown: everyone from Tom Hiddleston, Jeremy Irons, and »

2 October 2014 2:19 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

The first picture of Benedict Cumberbatch in BBC Two's The Hollow Crown: The Wars of the Roses has been released.

The actor - who is playing the lead role of Richard III in one of the channel's three new Shakespeare films - is seen on horseback in the first-look image.

BBC Two is working on three films as part of this second Hollow Crown series of Shakespeare's historical plays: Richard III and Henry VI in two parts.

Cumberbatch is joined in Richard III by Dame Judi Dench, after he personally asked the actress to join him on the project.

On Wednesday (October 1), it was announced that Cumberbatch's Sherlock co-star Andrew Scott will play King Louis in Henry VI and Richard III.

Michael Gambon, Sophie Okonedo, Hugh Bonneville, Sally Hawkins, Keeley Hawes and Tom Sturridge are among the other stars who will appear in the upcoming films.
