Lewis: ITV/PBS Drama Ends with Season Nine; No Season Ten

3 November 2015 4:03 PM, PST | | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

Lewis, ITV's long-running Morse spin-off, is effectively cancelled after UK series nine. Kevin Whately was first cast as Robbie Lewis opposite the late John Thaw's Morse, on the forerunning British drama of the same name. Reportedly, Whately and Lewis co-star Laurence Fox, who plays Detective Sergeant James Hathaway, have decided to retire from their roles, after 33 episodes, so as not to outdo Thaw's Morse, which also ran for 33 episodes. ITV will air part one of the two-part series finale, "What Lies Tangled," today, November 3, 2015. Lewis will conclude its UK run on November 10.

Goodnight Mister Tom to return to the West End

11 September 2015 4:39 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Goodnight Mister Tom is all set to return to the West End for ten weeks, starting in December. Following a hugely successful West End season in 2012/13, the critically acclaimed Chichester Festival Theatre adaptation of Michelle Magorian’s classic novel will play this Christmas at the Duke of York’s Theatre, previewing from December 11th.

Now a modern classic, Michelle Magorian’s wonderfully uplifting tale is brought gloriously to life in this magical stage adaptation by David Wood. Set during the dangerous build up to the Second World War, Goodnight Mister Tom follows young William Beech, who is evacuated to the idyllic English countryside and forges a remarkable and heart-warming friendship with the elderly recluse, Tom Oakley, played by David Troughton.  All is perfect until William is suddenly summoned by his mother back to London.

Winner of the Guardian Children’s Fiction Prize and commended for the Carnegie Medal, Goodnight Mister »
