Robert Lindsay is returning to sitcoms in Gold's new antiques shop comedy Bull

23 July 2015 4:20 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Robert Lindsay is making a comedy comeback in a new show on Gold later this year.

The My Family actor will be joined by Maureen Lipman in Bull, a new three-part sitcom from writers Gareth Gwynn and John-Luke Roberts.

The studio comedy is centred around Rupert Bull (Lindsay), a man who runs a struggling antiques shop alongside his inept staff.

Lipman will play his employee Beverley, while there will also be appearances from Matt Lucas, Kevin Eldon, Toby Williams, Claudia Jessie and Naz Osmanoglu.

UKTV's Simon Lupton said of the show: "What could possibly go wrong in a quintessentially English antiques shop managed by an energetic eccentric and staffed by a bizarre bunch of characters?

The answer is quite a lot – and that is the premise for this fast-paced, contemporary sitcom, written with verve by a new writing partnership. Robert Lindsay is one of our most versatile and funny actors, »

Four years ago, Jackson, who represented the Greater London constituency of Hampstead and Highgate, announced that she would stand down the 2015 general election – which, somewhat controversially, was won by right-wing prime minister David Cameron's Conservative party.[1] The silver lining: following a two-decade-plus break, Glenda Jackson is returning to acting. Now, Jackson isn't – for the time being – returning to acting in front of the camera. The 79-year-old is to be featured in the Radio 4 series Emile Zola: Blood, Sex and Money, described on their website as a “mash-up” adaptation of 20 Emile Zola novels collectively known as "Les Rougon-Macquart."[2] Part 1 of the three-part Radio 4 series will be broadcast daily during an »

8 May 2015 4:41 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Jason is torn between good and evil as Atlantis gears up to its final confrontation...

This review contains spoilers.

2.11 Kin

In this week's episode, a frustrated Pasiphae is awaiting news of the fugitives, still intent on killing Jason, though Medea warns that Jason may be the perfect ally - his heart has been darkened by the truth, and she feels he’s ready to be brought across to their way of thinking and all that may entail.

Meanwhile, Hercules, Pythagoras, Ariadne and Aeson, Jason’s father, are hunting for the lost - both geographically and emotionally - hero. Hercules realises that he’s abandoned his friend when he needed her most and vows to correct this.

Thankfully, Pasiphae has the perfect thing planned to take her mind off events - a gladiatorial spectacle. It's a lesson for Medea, as Pasiphae explains that the event will placate the people and remind »

This week's Atlantis episode, The Gorgon's Gaze, leaves the viewer wanting more thanks to its collection of great performances...

This review contains spoilers.

2.9 The Gorgon's Gaze

Let's start, as ever, with a recap of this week's action. 

With Pasiphae now in a position of power, the Gods have warned that they are angry and have spoken through new Oracle, Cassandra. Unhappy with the condemnation of her actions, Pasiphae is advised that the solution is clear - get Ariadne to pass on the crown and kill the young queen.

There's little joy in the heroes' camp, either, as Jason, Pythagoras and Medusa fight inner turmoil as they realise the insurmountable task they face if they wish to save Ariadne and the fate of Atlantis.

Refusing to break under pressure, Ariadne fears for her life as Pasiphae threatens her body, then her life, with Medea using her knowledge of the dark arts to torture the queen, »

In the name of getting to know one of Britain's most famous men a little better, we headed to BAFTA HQ on Tuesday night (March 17) for the latest in BAFTA's live strand A Life in Television. Host David Walliams certainly extracted a host of fascinating facts about Palin's life (and »
