Doll & Em; Death in Paradise; The Necessary War; The Pity of War – review

1 March 2014 4:06 PM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Dolly Wells and Emily Mortimer are a treat in their understated La sitcom Doll & Em. And what is it with Death in Paradise?

Doll & Em (Sky Living) | Sky Go

Death in Paradise (BBC1) | iPlayer

The Necessary War (BBC2) | iPlayer

The Pity of War (BBC2) | iPlayer

In an effort to boost its drama output and get the talent onside, Sky has produced more than its share of vanity projects in recent years. You know, the kind of half-hour whimsies that actors have always wanted to write or direct or appear in to show that they are serious artists but which, by any reasonable commissioning criteria, would be kicked unopened into the slush pile.

So it was with a certain trepidation born of toe-warped experience that I approached Doll & Em, a six-part comedy on Sky Living co-written by and co-starring the actors Emily Mortimer and Dolly Wells and produced by Mortimer's husband, »

Death in Paradise; The Naked Rambler – TV review

22 January 2014 1:42 AM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Death in Paradise is a police drama that's untroubled by forensics, profiling or CCTV. It's Miss Marple with coconuts

Sainte-Marie, the Caribbean island home of Death in Paradise (BBC1), appears to be suddenly overrun with zombies. And here's a Lara Croft-style lady with bad-ass muscles, boobs, attitude etc taking them on. "You ugly sons of bitches wanna fight?" she says to a zombie, kicking him impressively in the face. "You got one." She's got quite a job on, there are a lot of them, and just one of her. Still it should liven things up a bit around here – Living Death in Paradise maybe, I like it …

"Cut!" says a man. Oh, it's just a film set, a zombie movie being shot on the island. Shame. It won't be long before a real death though, you'll see. Here we go, the stand-in, collapsed and gasping on set – plain old dying dead this time. »

Death in Paradise star Gary Carr "shocked" by Ben Miller exit

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

Warning: This article contains spoilers that some readers may prefer to avoid.

Death in Paradise star Gary Carr has admitted that he was "shocked" to learn the fate of Ben Miller's character.

Richard Poole (Miller) will be stabbed to death with an ice-pick in the BBC One drama's third series opener, it was revealed last month.

"I thought, that's a bit cold!" Carr - who plays Fidel Best - told Digital Spy. "But at the same time, I understand it, because it would be out-of-character for Richard Poole to leave the island.

"It's definitely sad, but for him to just get up and leave and go back to the UK would've been odd and I don't think an audience would accept that."

Carr added that new lead Kris Marshall, who plays Humphrey Goodman, brings a "new dynamic and new energy" to the series.
