After Alan’s close encounter last week, the investigation turns back to finding the serial killer terrorising Lochnafoy. Dr Marr is in the spotlight once again as a warrant is granted to search his property, but he decides it’s finally time to reveal his secret. Craig Petrie continues to behave suspiciously when visiting Dessie to let him know about a geography field trip. After Petrie is shot at, Annie investigates and heads down a path that leads to a murder weapon.

After requesting answers last week, the fifth episode served them up in spades. »

3.6 The Lord Of No Mercy

I’ve been trying to work out what V.M. Varga is all about. It’s a challenging prospect, for two reasons in particular. Firstly, he’s a decidedly slippery customer, prone to deflection, dissemblance and downright dishonesty. It’s near impossible to draw a bead on him. Secondly, he’s an utter grotesque and it’s not all that pleasant to stare too long at him. Seriously. His staring also into you would be the least of your concerns.

Still, this episode is a good one for which to don the protective »

Set the dramatic drums a-beating and start the soaring strings – Ross Poldark’s off on another heroic mission. In the opening scene, babe-in-arms Clowance mewled at the prospect of her dad’s derring-do but she’ll soon learn. Recklessness and Ross Poldark go together like Prudie and rum, like Caroline Penvenen and glorious hats, like Tholly and the clap.

In non-communicable disease news, like some kind of street urchin little Valentine Warleggan has been diagnosed with rickets, which upset George no end. A Warleggan child must only contract the illnesses of the wealthy – gout, say, or whatever it is that’s wrong with Gwyneth Paltrow. »

How Hamlet spent his days at university in Wittenberg. What Mr Bingley and Jane did on their honeymoon. How St John Rivers got on as a missionary in India. What befell Rosie Cotton while Samwise Gamgee was on his way to Mordor and back.

Stories that don’t need to be told, one and all. Here’s another to add to the list: what Luke was up to while June was going through hell in The Handmaid’s Tale.

Back during our set visit for Fear The Walking Dead’s third season, we had to sign a rather frightening non-disclosure form, which has become a standard process to prevent naughty journalists from spoiling content before they’re supposed to, but it was only after viewing the first few episodes of season three that it became apparent quite how critical secrecy was.

Within a heartbeat we’d had the death of Travis, Maddie spooning a psychotic Troy’s eye and then, of course, the oft-theorised return of Daniel Salazar. The level of security around his return was such that whilst on set, »

Rylan Clark-Neal and pals take on The Crystal Maze for Stand Up To Cancer this week. Here’s how they got on…

Du du du duuuuurr Du-duh.

Du du du Duuuuurr Dur Dur Dur Dur Duh!

The Crystal Maze music alone makes me happy.

It isn’t just nostalgia. Aside from that time Dean Goodall’s mum ironed his shell suit then made him wear it to the year seven summer disco, the early nineties weren’t even that much fun. They were listless days that passed in a scrunchie-fuelled haze. Pogs came and pogs went. We drowned our ennui by drinking melted blue ice poles and doing the Time Warp. Again.

No, the joy of The Crystal Maze is intrinsic. »

"You shouldn't have hit me, Missy"

Thank you for taking the time, in the midst of the internet exploding all around you, to come and read this review. This is being written ahead of the episode’s transmission, and were I putting money on things, I’d suggest the reappearance of Heather from The Pilot is where the battlelines are mainly being drawn right about now.

How about we start there?

For much of The Doctor Falls, it really looked as if Bill – one of the absolute triumphs of the series – was doomed. »

Oh, do piss off, George Warleggan. Pack up your little wig, your grubby social aspirations and your spiteful contempt and just do one. The eighteenth century is perfectly capable of culling the poor all on its own thank you very much. It doesn’t need your help.

Nevertheless, help it George does. The cost of his imagined humiliation this week was the financial ruin of seventy-five mining families.

First look at Hayley Atwell and Matthew Macfadyen in Howards End

7 May 2017 3:50 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The BBC and Starz have released the first official image from the upcoming Howards End limited series, which features Hayley Atwell as Margaret Schlegel and Matthew Macfadyen as Henry Wilcox.

The four-part Howards End series is based on the classic E.M. Forster novel and has been scripted by Oscar-winner Kenneth Lonergan (Manchester By the Sea). Here’s the official synopsis:

Margaret Schlegel is an intelligent, idealistic young woman who is courted by the older Henry Wilcox, a self-made conservative businessman, after his wife Ruth Wilcox (Julia Ormond) dies unexpectedly and he becomes owner of Howards End. Meanwhile Margaret’s passionate and capricious younger sister Helen Schlegel (Philippa Coulthard) takes up the cause of Leonard Bast (Joseph Quinn) a young bank clerk who falls on hard times at work and at home with his partner Jacky (Rosalind Eleazar). In the absence of their late parents, the sisters’ loving but interfering Aunt »

Howard’s End First Look Image Of Hayley Atwell & Matthew Macfadyen

5 May 2017 8:31 AM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

Howard’s End, the limited series based on the E.M. Forster novel that is set to air on BBC and Starz, released a photo so that people finally have something to ground their potential excitement. While a first look release is never quite the sensation some may hope, in this case, it’s good to get something moving on this one just to get past the lingering effect of the good/bad news of Hayley Atwell‘s attachment to the project, which helped killed her fans’ hopes of Agent Carter revival.

The image shows Atwell (Margaret Schlegel) and Matthew Macfadyen (Henry Wilcox) at Simpson’s-in-the-Strand restaurant.

It’s hard to believe just how long it’s been since the now classic Anthony Hopkins/Emma Thompson version of the story, and if getting another take on the story isn’t enough, this one comes as Kenneth Lonergan‘s first television adaptation. »

She traveled back to the 1940s for Agent Carter; now Hayley Atwell is going back even further in time.

Starz has released the first photo from its miniseries adaptation of the classic E.M. Forster novel Howards End, set in circa-1900 England and starring Atwell as headstrong young woman Margaret Schlegel. (Emma Thompson won an Oscar for playing Margaret in the 1992 film version of Howards End.) And just like Agent Carter‘s Peggy, Margaret seems to have a fondness for hats.
