Top Gear special pulls in 5m viewers despite anger over Clarkson rant

29 December 2011 6:05 AM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Top Gear's India special wins its slot, while Great Expectations loses 600,000 viewers on second night

Public outrage at Jeremy Clarkson's rant about "executing" public sector workers failed to translate into a boycott of his show, with BBC2's Top Gear Christmas special pulling in 5 million viewers.

BBC2 had a strong night with Top Gear's 90-minute India special drawing 4.4 million viewers in the 8pm slot, with a further 600,000 tuning in to watch it simulcast on BBC HD.

Clarkson's recent rant on the BBC One Show, which saw the corporation receive almost 32,000 complaints and media regulator Ofcom launch an investigation, failed to dent the popularity of the Christmas special which managed a 20% share of audience from 8pm.

BBC1's Great Expectations, starring Ray Winstone and Gillian Anderson, lost traction with audiences losing 600,000 viewers on its second outing.

Great Expectations, which had debuted on Tuesday with 6.6 million viewers, lost »

TV review: The Untold Tommy Cooper; Ben Hur

28 December 2011 4:05 PM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

You didn't need to be a Tommy Cooper fan to find this take on his life compelling

The Untold Tommy Cooper (Channel 4) was – if you will forgive descent into seasonal cliche for a moment – a little cracker. Eschewing the usual method of repackaging of just-about-known-but-generally-ignored facts that traditionally make up an "untold story" of a star, it used recently unearthed letters, audiotapes, interview footage and, above all, his agent Miff Ferrie's meticulous records to reconstruct its subject in the round.

The talent – and you don't have to find Cooper funny in order to see it – was beautiful. A lumbering giant of a man with a featherlight touch – for a trick, a fumble or a punchline – seemingly effortlessly snatching victory from the jaws of defeat from the jaws of victory.

The turmoil behind the talent was less so. The film calmly and unflinchingly detailed the story of his alcoholism, which »

BBC One's 'Great Expectations' slays ITV's 'Fast Freddie'

28 December 2011 7:30 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

The BBC's new adaptation of Charles Dickens's Great Expectations premiered with a bumper audience last night (Tuesday). The BBC One mini-series, starring the likes of Ray Winstone and Gillian Anderson, averaged 6.59m (25.6%) in the 9pm hour. Great Expectations was too strong for ITV1's one-off Laurence Fox drama Fast Freddie, The Widow and Me, which appealed to 3.9m (15.6%) and 216k (1.2%) on +1. Serial dramas EastEnders and Holby City, airing before the watershed, paced BBC One's primetime victory. Susan Boyle documentary An Unlikely Superstar (ITV1) and Channel 4's repeat of My Big Fat Gypsy Christmas tied with 1.99m (8.3%) in the 8pm hour. ITV1 +1 added 108k (0.4%) for Boyle, while 314k (1.2%) watched the Gypsy Weddings special on timeshift. Jimmy Carr's annual (more) »

Dickens drama draws 6.6 million viewers against 3.9 million for ITV1's Fast Freddie, The Widow and Me

What the Dickens! High hopes for BBC1's Great Expectations proved entirely justified as the star-studded drama was watched by more than 6 million viewers.

The first of a three-part adaptation starring Ray Winstone and Gillian Anderson pulled in 6.6 million viewers, a 25.6% share, between 9pm and 10pm on Tuesday.

Great Expectations had the better of ITV1's Laurence Fox drama Fast Freddie, The Widow and Me, which drew 3.9 million viewers (15.6%) between 9pm and 10.30pm, rising to 4.1 million with ITV1+1.

In a competitive 9pm slot, Channel 4's annual Big Fat Quiz of the Year hosted by Jimmy Carr drew 3.1 million viewers, a 13.4% share, between 9pm and 11.05pm, rising to 3.5 million with Channel 4+1, putting BBC2's Three Men Go To New England to the sword.

TV review: Great Expectations; Fast Freddie, The Widow and Me

27 December 2011 4:05 PM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

From the misty churchyard to forlorn Satis House, this Great Expectations was wonderful

A small boy runs, frightened, from a lonely churchyard, across a flat, marshy landscape. He starts to cross a little wooden bridge over a muddy creek … Suddenly a big hand appears from underneath the bridge, grabs the boy's legs, brings him down. The boy shouts out.

"Come 'ere, shut up," growls the escaped convict, to whom the big hand belongs. "You scream again and I'll cut your throat, d'you understand?" Then he turns to the camera and taps his forehead. "Hold on, the latest live odds are coming up on your screen now." And, sure enough, on to the screen the following words are typed: "Pip to get together with Estella in the end: 2/1."

Guess what, that doesn't really happen. Well, the first part does, but not the betting bit. But it kind of happens in my head, »

Dickens on screen: the highs and the lows

23 December 2011 4:05 PM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

There have been more than 400 film and TV adaptations so far, and counting, some brilliant, some memorably awful

The opening credits of BBC1's new three-part adaptation of Great Expectations (27-29 December) show a chrysalis cracking open to reveal a pair of trembling wings. A few seconds later this delicate emergence is replaced on screen by the escaped convict Magwitch (Ray Winstone) erupting from the stagnant waters of the Essex marshes. Covered in blood and slime, he is at once the monster of nightmares and a huge misshapen baby gasping its first breath.

In a single sequence, the director Brian Kirk gets to the heart of Dickens's novel as a fable of rebirth and renewal. Together with Sarah Phelps, the screenwriter, he has created a world in which characters are forever seeking to transform themselves – or each other. A spookily young Miss Havisham (Gillian Anderson), still cocooned in her tatty wedding dress, »

Shooting galore in Yorkshire's dramatic valley of film

20 December 2011 7:00 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Hang around in Calderdale, and you could well end up in a movie. Our Hebden Bridge outpost, Jill Robinson, reels off some the greats

Last year saw the premiere at the Hebden Bridge Picture House of the film A Calder Valley Christmas, with local people (including this outpost of the Northerner) queuing around the block to be among the first to see it. Directed by local film-maker Nick Wilding, the piece combines archive material, reminiscences about bad winters, carols, poems, scenes of local Mummers and other traditions, and monologues by the incomparable Ian Dewhirst MBE. (He actually lives in Keighley, but he tells such a good tale that he is often invited over the hill.) Like all the best films, there is an accompanying song, Christmas in Hebden Bridge, performed by children from local schools.

However, this is by no means the only film to have used the dramatic natural »

Great Expectations | Three Men Go To New England | Fast Freddie, The Widow And Me | Royal Institution Christmas Lectures 2011 | True Stories: Sarah Palin – You Betcha! | Enlightened

Great Expectations

9pm, BBC1

Following the BBC's gripping Bleak House, it's no surprise that this cracking three-parter has drawn in names. The big draw is Ray Winstone as a terrifying Magwitch. Gillian Anderson plays Miss Havisham not as creepy but as a depressed and manipulative woman of uncertain age: floaty, possibly heavily-medicated. It's Sean Dooley who really nails it, though. As Pip's guardian Joe Gargery (often played as a henpecked simpleton), he brings out a good man of humanity and principle.

Unreservedly recommended: script excellent, acting powerful, direction cheerless. Set the box, or box the set. John Robinson

Phil Hogan's Christmas TV highlights

17 December 2011 4:54 PM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Downton Abbey, Doctor Who and The Gruffalo's Child are among the highlights of 2011's Christmas TV schedule

There's much talk of who will blow whom off the screen over the coming season of peace, love and understanding, but who can honestly summon the enthusiasm for a "battle" between Strictly and Corrie when we have perfectly adequate digital recording or catch-up facilities to watch neither at our own convenience?

No. The only question is, what's worth watching? Actually, lots, as it turns out. I was impatient with the bizarre turns of fortune in Downton Abbey earlier this year, but it seems that whoever's in charge is back off the drugs with a gripping two-hour Christmas night special, which manages to be funny (cue Maggie Smith, baffled in the presence of a nutcracker) without being laughable. The story carries on where it left off, but with the corpses of flu and war »
