What to Watch: Tonight's TV Picks - Bake Off, Our Zoo, Silicon Valley

3 September 2014 7:22 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

The Great British Bake Off: BBC One, 8pm

Following the national meltdown (sorry) over the Baked Alaska 'bingate' drama last week, Bake Off returns without Iain, or Diana, who dropped out of filming for health reasons.

Emotions are running understandably high as the remaining bakers prepare a selection of pies and tarts, and try their hardest to avoid Mary Berry's least favourite feature: a soggy bottom.

Our Zoo: BBC One, 9pm

Straight after Bake Off comes a heart-warming new period drama on BBC One, which tells the story of the family who founded Chester Zoo.

Appalled at the treatment of the animals at a local circus, ex-soldier George Mottershead (Lee Ingleby) relocates a monkey and a parrot to his parents back yard - much to their distaste. Liz White, Ralf Little, Anne Reid, Sophia Myles and Stephen Campbell Moore (pictured) also star.

TV Review: ‘Last Tango in Halifax,’ Season Two

26 June 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Derek Jacobi continues his march toward adorable PBS mascot status, with the one-two punch of returning drama “Last Tango in Halifax” and the premiere of “Vicious,” a new sitcom co-starring Ian McKellen. “Tango” was such a wonderful, wispy delight in season one, it perhaps inevitably loses some luster in this second go-round, while remaining extremely pleasant company, especially when focusing on its tale of rekindled love. Extending the romance, however, does introduce some familiar elements, with the show taking on the air of a multigenerational soap that at times resembles an accented version of “Parenthood,” albeit with an only-on-pbs focus on septuagenarians.

For those who missed season one (and at a mere six episodes, that’s an oversight worth correcting), “Halifax” stars Jacobi and Anne Reid as Alan and Celia, a couple with a brief teenage crush on each other before she moved away, only to be reunited 60 years later. »

DVD Review: 'Le Week-End'

24 February 2014 6:21 AM, PST | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★★☆☆ Upholding the current vogue of films both targeted at an older tier of cinemagoers and depicting the romantic ups and downs of characters in their autumn years, Le Week-End (2013) sees director Roger Michell teaming up once more with screenwriter Hanif Kureishi for another witty and jaggedly charming gander at identity and the processes of maturing somewhat gracefully. Two of their previous collaborations have focused on older characters reaching something of an impasse - from Anne Reid's impassioned grandmother in The Mother (2003) to the late Peter O'Toole's twinkly-eyed pensioner in Venus (2006).

Inside No. 9 episode 1 review: Sardines

6 February 2014 12:31 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Review Ryan Lambie 6 Feb 2014 - 08:31

Looking for a refreshingly different bit of British telly? Look no further than the new comedy drama series Inside No. 9, Ryan writes...

In a modern world where media, news stories, tweets and animated gifs of cats whistle past our eyes with increasing speed, Inside No. 9 emerges as a bold and refreshingly different bit of British telly.

Written by Reece Shearsmith and Steve Pemberton - two members of The League Of Gentleman and the warped imaginations behind the wonderful Psychoville - it harks back to an earlier age of carefully-wrought, austere TV drama, where great acting and screenwriting take centre stage.  

Although set in a rambling country mansion, Inside No. 9's opening episode takes place entirely in one room. In the midst of a terribly posh engagement party, bride-to-be Rebecca (The It Crowd's Katherine Parkinson) is playing a game of Sardines. »

The Restaurant Man

8pm, BBC2

Russell Norman, the Restaurant Man, really is very cool. He's organic. Where others steam in with a meat cleaver, Russell dispenses wisdom like a waiter unhurriedly uncorking a vintage bottle of Dom Pérignon, all the while fixing you in the eyes with a look that says, "I know how to handle meat." Tonight, he dishes up advice to Dave and Debbie, who have invested all their moolah in a run-down Gloucestershire village inn they want to turn into a gastropub. Can Russell help with their staffing and serving issues? Ali Catterall

Royal Cousins At War

9pm, BBC2

When Europe went to war in 1914, Germany, Russia and the United Kingdom had heads of state who were also cousins. »

Great British Bake Off's Mary Berry named Oldie of the year

4 February 2014 4:47 PM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Anne Reid, Nicholas Parsons and Sir John Major also among winners of Oldie magazine's annual awards

One of the stars of the Great British Bake Off was honoured as the Oldie of the year at the Oldie magazine's annual awards ceremony on Tuesday.

Mary Berry, the cookery writer and judge from the hit BBC series, was celebrated at the lunch recognising the contribution of mature familiar faces.

The actor Anne Reid – who played Celia alongside Derek Jacobi's Derek in BBC1's Last Tango in Halifax – was awarded the pinup of the year prize at the event.

The 90-year-old broadcaster Nicholas Parsons – who is still hosting his BBC Radio 4 series Just A Minute after 46 years – collected the Dorian Gray award, which the organisers and judges often tailor towards those they feel are worthy of recognition.

The former Conservative party prime minister Sir John Major was rewarded with the campaigner of the year prize, »

Reece Shearsmith and Steve Pemberton's Inside No. 9 to start in February

23 January 2014 9:44 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

From the talented minds of Reece Shearsmith and Steve Pemberton, the duo behind the excellent Psychoville and The League of Gentlemen (with Mark Gatiss and Jeremy Dyson) comes a brand new series entitled Inside No. 9.

Over the next six weeks we will be served six different macabre tales where what appears to be ordinary suddenly turns a little less than ordinary.  The stories range from a country house where a game of Sardines reveals some chilling revelations, a blood-soaked actor’s dressing room, or a one-bedroomed flat of a happy primary school teacher (well apparently happy).  If you're fans of the duo’s work you will know there will be dark comedy woven through these instalments, twists that throw you and horrific turns; for those of us remember Tales of the Unexpected with Roald Dahl this may ring many bells with you.

Our first episode Sardines starts with the »

21 January 2014 7:27 AM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »
