1 Film The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey (3D)

Well, not so very unexpected. Every move has been tracked by fanboys, from the casting of Martin Freeman as Bilbo and Benedict Cumberbatch as the dragon Smaug to the return of the king, Peter Jackson, to take over directing from Guillermo del Toro. But Middle-earth (or, as it's sometimes known, New Zealand) is back for the next three Christmases.

3 Pop Scott Walker

The avant-garde Walker Brother returns with his first album since 2006's The Drift. Not for the faint-hearted, Bish Bosch finds the former romantic hero deep in dystopian territory, at once sonorous and rigorous.

3 Classical H7steria

Secret State: I played the vicar in the TV version of my novel

5 November 2012 4:00 PM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

When Secret State hits our screens, watch out for the vicar: he's played by novelist and former MP Chris Mullin, who wrote the book it's based on, A Very British Coup. Here is his diary from his time in front of the camera

Thursday, 16 February, 2012

To Manchester where I am to have a walk-on part in a new TV version of my first novel, A Very British Coup, about the overthrow of a radical, very left-wing prime minister. Not that this new series bears much resemblance to my book. Even the title has been changed – to Secret State – and the credits say "inspired by" rather than "based on".

Director Ed Fraiman has kindly agreed that I might have a walk-on part, a la Alfred Hitchcock. I thought he might reincarnate me as a backbench MP or even a minister; instead I am to be the vicar conducting a memorial service »

Kristin Scott Thomas to star in Old Times at Harold Pinter theatre

10 October 2012 6:23 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Rufus Sewell will also star in the first of Pinter's plays to be staged at the West End theatre that was renamed in the playwright's honour last year

Harold Pinter's Old Times will be the first of his plays to be produced at the West End theatre that was renamed in his honour last year, when a stellar revival opens in January.

Ian Rickson's production will star Kristin Scott Thomas, who appeared in the final show at what was then called the Comedy theatre, a revival of another Pinter three-hander, Betrayal), also directed by Rickson.

Old Times premiered at the Aldwych theatre in 1971 and shows married couple Kate and Deeley reminiscing about the start of their relationship with Kate's cryptic old friend Anna. Old wounds resurface over the course of an evening underpinned by sexual tension.

Scott Thomas will alternate the roles of Kate and Anna with Lia Williams, »
