Those familiar with David Morrissey solely as a heavy on “The Walking Dead” have missed out on a fascinating actor, which explains in part why Acorn TV — the streaming service of British drama — was eager to bring a showcase for him, “The Driver,” to the States. Yet this three-part, three-hour miniseries is a low-octane vehicle, casting Morrissey against type as a downtrodden cab driver who, unhappy and quietly desperate, agrees to work as the ersatz chauffeur of a crime boss. Despite the compelling central performance, “The Driver” follows a pretty standard roadmap in delivering a thrill-deficient thriller.
With so many overseas productions receiving distribution in the U.S., Acorn’s mandate is to expose those that don’t get siphoned off elsewhere. Thus far, the service has been enterprising about finding lower-profile projects with marketable and recognizable stars.
Enter “The Driver,” which, as constructed, feels either like an overinflated movie »

We’ve touched on why The Writer’s Tale, the 2008 (expanded in 2010) compendium of correspondence between Doctor Who showrunner Russell T Davies and journalist Benjamin Cook, deserves a space on your bookshelf here.
In short, The Writer’s Tale is both a screenwriting masterclass and an unparalleled look behind the scenes of new Doctor Who. As well as following the production triumphs and emergencies as the show lurches “from one crisis to another”, it lets you witness story ideas being created in the wild. See pivotal Doctor Who moments tottering unsurely out of Davies’ mind like new-born giraffes and watch them transform into sleek, galloping beasts of majesty! Think of it like a classy David Attenborough doc on storytelling, with bonus David Tennant photos and chat about Tony from Skins. »

If you were to turn to the dictionary entry for “dead tired,” the illustration accompanying the definition would probably look a lot like the survivors on The Walking Dead did this week. They were exhausted, hungry, dehydrated and, worst of all, demoralized. But then, something happened that promised to change everything. Wanna know what that something was? Keep reading…

The Emmy-nominated actress (Orange Is the New Black) has landed a role in the CBS drama pilot Doubt, where she’ll play the “fierce, funny” Cameron Wirth, “a transgender Ivy League-educated attorney who’s as competitive as she is compassionate.” Because Cox’s character has “experienced injustice first hand,” she’ll be inclined to “fight all the harder for her clients.”

Might Extant‘s Humanichs program have some not-quite-above-board competition?
That’s one conclusion you can draw from the CBS series’ latest casting: Kiersey Clemons (Transparent) will recur in Season 2 as a lifelike robot who’s “a bit morally ambiguous,” TVLine has learned exclusively.
Lucy is attractive and fun but also “an unpredictable wildcard” — per the official character description — whose loose sense of right and wrong is a result of her creators’ skipping important stages in her development. (See? All of those hours Humanichs founder John spent telling his »
David Morrissey is an actor with a whole lot of geek credibility, having won over legions of Doctor Who fans as the eponymous red herring in one of David Tennant’s final few adventures, The Next Doctor, before taking on the popular role of The Governor in The Walking Dead.
Now, he’s signed up for some science fiction fare once more, by joining Halle Berry in CBS’ astronaut drama Extant. Unfortunately, he isn’t given another enigmatic name beginning with ‘the’ this time around. Instead, he will play General Tobias Shepherd, head of the global security commission. If you like, you can call him The General. We think we will.
The General is described as “a celebrated general [naturally], charming, political, known and respected for making the tough calls of wartime, and standing by »

Morrissey, who played the sadistic, eyepatch-sporting Governor on the gory AMC drama, will recur as Extant‘s General Tobias Shepherd.
Shepherd leads the Global Security Commission, is rather personable and has a history with Halle Berry’s Molly — a connection that makes his job tougher in light of a new, deadly threat.
The Walking Dead season 5 returned to the UK last night. What might be in store for Rick and co. over the next episodes? Spoilers...
Warning: contains spoilers for The Walking Dead seasons one to five and very mild comics spoilers.
Last night saw the UK return of The Walking Dead season five, meaning that the next seven Monday nights are going to be fraught with bleakness, grief, tension, truly disgusting body horror and… remind me why we love The Walking Dead again?
Oh yeah, that’s right. We love The Walking Dead for its characters, stunning special effects, visceral violence and the reassuring sense that whatever is going wrong with our own lives, it’ll never be as bad as whatever it is that Rick, Carol, Michonne and the gang are having to deal with.
The first episode back, What Happened And What’s Going On, played a characteristic game with audience expectations. »
