You, Me and the Apocalypse: Is Sky1's ambitious sitcom a dystopian delight?

30 September 2015 2:00 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

It's the end of the world, but you'd imagine Sky1 is feeling fine, having partnered with NBC for a new big-budget comedy drama.

You, Me and the Apocalypse brings together the best of UK and Us comic talent - from Britain, there's The Wrong Mans star Mathew Baynton and Peep Show's Paterson Joseph, while Parks and Rec legend Rob Lowe and The Office actress Jenna Fischer are among the American stars.

Strong pedigree - but did the end product live up to the hype? Was it a hellish experience, or a dystopian delight?

Digital Spy wants your thoughts on You, Me and the Apocalypse - here to stay, or (like the Earth, potentially) gone tomorrow?

You, Me & The Apocalypse: backstage at the end of the world

30 September 2015 1:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Rhik Samadder heads to ‘Apocalypse’ Slough to meet the cast of Sky1’s new comedy-drama and try to find its star, Rob Lowe

It’s a triple-threat British day: cold, grey and wet. In the car park of a stately mansion in Aldermaston, a rat appears, running from the direction I’m headed. Does it know something I don’t? I’m here to watch filming on unfathomably unlikely Sky TV comedy-drama You, Me And The Apocalypse. Set 34 days before a comet hits Earth, it features an insanely diverse cast that includes Rob Lowe and Pauline Quirke attempting to find their way to a bunker underneath Slough, to see out Armageddon. (When I’m there, the working title is Apocalypse Slough, which is 400% better, if not for an American audience. But screw them.)

Over the next few hours, the show’s principals wander in and talk in a circumspect way about filming. »

You, Me And The Apocalypse: funny, clever, and well worth your time

29 September 2015 7:02 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Rob Lowe and Pauline Quirke, together at last! Sky One's You, Me And The Apocalypse has that and plenty more to recommend it…

The original title of Sky/NBC’s new comedy drama was sacrificed to the gods of transatlantic appeal. Apparently Us audiences aren’t familiar enough with English boroughs just off the M4 for Apocalypse Slough to work (Apocalypse Slu-ff? Slo-oo?), hence the change to something more generic.

Thankfully, that seems to have been the only thing flattened in translation, because title aside,  You, Me And The Apocalypse is a blast. Pun intended.

Mat Baynton (Horrible Histories, The Wrong Mans) is likeable as ever in the role of Slough bank manager Jamie Winton, the routine-loving straight man to his feckless, hedonistic housemate, Dave (Joel Fry). Yes, it’s a bit in debt to Peep Show, but these two soon have much more to worry about than Mark and Jez ever did. »

Paterson Joseph hints at the death of Johnson in Peep Show series 9

29 September 2015 4:40 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

He's the smoothest boss around with the finest pair of driving gloves, but could we see Johnson's demise in Peep Show's final series?

Paterson Joseph has revealed that he has wanted his slick character to kill himself in the past, and writers Sam Bain and Jesse Armstrong may still have a shock up their sleeves.

"We always talked about a Johnson suicide," he told Digital Spy. "And I want him to kill himself in the bath with a picture of Mark. That's how I'd like to end him.

"They've always talked about him dying but they didn't quite know how and we started talking about the suicide thing. They'll go with something much cleverer than that!"

Joseph will return as Johnson in the upcoming final series of the Channel 4 comedy alongside fellow stars David Mitchell and Robert Webb, with the cast tweeting several emotional photos from the final days on set. »

9 TV shows you must watch this week: This Is England '90 finale, Clarkson on Hignfy, last ever CSI

27 September 2015 2:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

From the sequin-tastic return of Strictly Come Dancing to the promising prospect of The West Wing and Birds Of A Feather colliding as Rob Lowe and Pauline Quirke star in You, Me and The Apocalypse - pull up an easy chair for Digital Spy's top TV picks for the next seven days.

1. CSI - Tuesday, 10pm on Channel 5

After 15 years and uncountable grisly murders in Las Vegas, the CSI team will say farewell in a feature-length movie. Rejoice as William Petersen is back as Gil Grissom, alongside a host of former faces to solve one last case.

It's not a complete end, as Ted Danson has moved sideways to spinoff show CSI: Cyber, but it should be a tough act to follow.

2. You, Me and the Apocalypse - Wednesday, 9pm on Sky1

Like a TV supergroup, this needs to be seen purely because of the eye-rubbingly impressive cast. The West Wing »

Neil Fitzmaurice hints at return of old faces in Peep Show series 9: 'Maybe one final kick in the nuts'

11 September 2015 11:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Neil Fitzmaurice has hinted that familiar faces will make some sort of return to Peep Show during its final series later this year.

The Mount Pleasant actor - who plays Mark's longtime foe Jeff in the Channel 4 comedy - told Digital Spy that he would "love to" come back at least one more time.

When asked if he'll return as Jeff in series nine, he said: "I can neither confirm nor deny! Let's just say that I hope so.

"Especially as Jeff has had such a wonderful ability to turn up just as Mark didn't think it could get any worse. There's a distinct possibility, let's say, that when Mark is down on his knees, Jeff may swing his head round the corner to give one final kick in the nuts.

"I would very much love to, but fingers crossed that for the final series some of the old faces will come back. »

Christopher Eccleston's Safe House will be back for a second series

10 September 2015 6:33 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

ITV has confirmed that Safe House has been commissioned for a second series.

The drama starring Christopher Eccleston, Marsha Thomason and Paterson Joseph will be back for four more episodes to air in 2016.

"With Ed Whitmore and Tracey Malone writing the scripts, and [executive producers Jill Green and Paula Cuddy] producing, we know the new series will be in safe hands."

Cuddy added: "From the outset, the ambition was for Safe House to become a returnable series.

7 August 2015 8:43 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Here's the first trailer for Sky1 and NBC's apocalyptic new series.

Comedy-drama You, Me and the Apocalypse - which you may know by its former name Apocalypse Slough - stars Rob Lowe, Megan Mullally and Paterson Joseph.

The series will follow a group of seemingly unconnected characters, who are brought together when it is reported that a large comet is set to collide with Earth.

Lowe stars as Father Jude, a rebellious priest at the Vatican who finds his faith shaken by the impending apocalypse.

The Parks and Recreation actor previously revealed that he joined the cast after being 'blown away' by the script.

Jenna Fischer, Pauline Quirke, Mathew Baynton and Joel Fry will also star in the series.

You, Me and the Apocalypse is coming soon to Sky1 and NBC. »

10 largely forgotten UK sci-fi sitcoms

23 July 2015 3:57 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Remember Kinvig, Clone, Not With A Bang? These are the UK sci-fi sitcoms you’re unlikely to see on comedy best-of lists…

With E4 sci-fi comedy commissions, Tripped and Aliens, and in-development Channel 4 projects, Space Ark and Graham Linehan/Adam Buxton collaboration The Cloud, in the works, a new crop of sci-fi sitcom could be making its way to UK TV.

Making funny sci-fi on a small-screen budget is tough enough without the additional pressure of having to attract viewers more traditionally down-to-earth in their sitcom tastes. Sci-fi sets and effects can be seen as prohibitively expensive by comedy commissioners (which is perhaps why the best UK sci-fi sitcoms of recent years has been on BBC Radio), and the genre’s niche status doesn’t scream mainstream hit. Over the years, one or two stand-outs have managed to straddle the sci-fi and comedy TV worlds, but plenty more have stumbled in the attempt. »

As it closes in on its second consecutive season-long victory in the key adult 18-49 demographic, NBC unveils a new 2015-16 primetime schedule that combines popular returning series, edge-of-your-seat new dramas, inventive new comedies and season nine of the Emmy Award-winning musical competition series The Voice.

Safe House episode 3 review

4 May 2015 2:42 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Underneath Safe House's over-reliance on flashback and cheap tricks lies a beautifully directed, strongly performed drama...

This review contains spoilers.

We’ve reached the halfway point in this new ITV drama starring former Doctor Who, Christopher Eccleston, and the dramatic moments of the previous instalment hang heavy throughout Safe House episode three.

During part two’s denouement, we were introduced to new character Gemma Underwood. And then we were quickly unintroduced to her as she was murdered by the villain of the piece, Michael Collersdale (played very devilishly by Peter Ferdinando). Her link to the ongoing events with the Blackwood family (who have been stashed away in the lake district in the titular safe house along with Eccleston’s Robert after an attack by Collersdale) is revealed - she’s the sister of mother Ali (Holby City’s Nicola Stephenson).

As we discover over the course of the proceedings, »

Safe House episode 2 review

Ignore the annoying contrivances, and Safe House continues to be an engrossing crime drama...

This review contains spoilers.

The weather has changed for the worse in the idyllic surroundings of the Lake District as twists are unveiled and forgotten memories return in Safe House

This second instalment of this engrossing new drama is bookended with surprises for the audience. The Blackwell family, safely ensconced in the titular safe house, run by former policeman Robert and his wife Katy, discover their son has been attacked.

Initially, we are led to believe that Sam Blackwell, the eldest son, has been involved in a drugs revenge attack by Michael Collersdale - the same man who tried to abduct Joe Blackwell (the youngest of the family), and ended up almost battering father David to death (and actually killing a helpful passer-by in the process). The focus on David as the reason for the crime »

Safe House review – nobody broods better than Christopher Eccleston

20 April 2015 11:00 PM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

This thriller is full of guilt, redemption and suspense, with a superb cast gathered around Eccleston, who remains a consummate master of the small screen

Spring is here! Trees are coming into verdant leaf, plants are in full bud, begging to be let bloom, all is fresh, green, vibrant, full of hope and promise … For all those temperamentally disinclined to all this uplifting nonsense, however, there is ITV’s new drama Safe House, starring Christopher Eccleston as former police protection officer Robert, who is haunted by a past case and now trying to make a new start with his wife, Katy (Marsha Thomason), in the gloomiest, most forbidding house in the gloomiest, most forbidding part of Cumbria. Here, he swims daily in the freezing waters of Lake Torment and gives Scafell Pike a run for its money in the silently brooding stakes. Robert and Katy intend to run the house as a B&B. »

Safe House episode 1 review

20 April 2015 9:20 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Misdirection is a hand played throughout Safe House, which is elevated by a fascinating cast and strong direction...

This review contains spoilers.

From ITV comes yet another Monday night drama to add to their roster of impressive output in recent times.

Safe House, from writer Michael Crompton (who recently penned ITV’s excellent Code of A Killer), sees Christopher Eccleston play ex-policeman Robert who has left the force behind him with his wife Katy, played by Marsha Thomason, for a quiet life in the beauty and tranquility, not to mention solitude, of the Lake District.

We quickly discover Robert left the police due to the the execution of a witness he was protecting, an event which continues to haunt him. He’s visited by his former colleague and friend Dci Mark Maxwell, Paterson Joseph, with a proposition for the couple.

Keen to “rehabilitate” his friend Robert, Mark suggests that the »
