Jimmy McGovern tackles Australia's dark past

3 April 2014 5:31 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

A seven-part series set during the turbulent period of the establishment of the penal colony in Sydney in 1788 may seem a stretch for Liverpool-born and based writer Jimmy McGovern.

Yet Banished, which starts shooting in Sydney on Monday, deals with themes the writer has often explored in the UK series he's created in a distinguished 30- year career.

.Jimmy.s stories are about the moral complexities which human beings face when they are in difficult situations,. his producing partner Sita Williams tells If. .He asks the audience: .What would you have done in that situation? Would you have done it any differently?..

David Wenham heads the large Australian/British cast as Governor Arthur Phillip, a pragmatic idealist who hopes to turn the penal colony into a land of opportunity for all. Joseph Milson portrays his nemesis Major Ross, who believes the only chance of survival is to rule with an iron fist. »

Jimmy McGovern epic Australian convict drama lands all-star cast

12 March 2014 10:05 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Jimmy McGovern's epic new BBC Two drama series Banished has secured an impressive all-star cast list.

Being Human's Russell Tovey, Ripper Street's MyAnna Buring and Julian Rhind-Tutt (The Hour) will all star in the show, which is starting filming in Sydney, Australia next month.

Banished will follow the "lives, loves, relationships and battle for survival of a group of convicts" in New South Wales, Australia, 1788.

How the first convicts survived is the best story I've come across in over 30 years as a dramatist. When you've got something like that, you don't worry about the narrative; you just concentrate on the characters. That is what we did. Consequently, I don't think I've ever written anything so character-driven.Jimmy McGovern

Other cast members include Top of the Lake's David Wenham, Joseph Millson (Holby City), Ewan Bremner (Accused) and Orla Brady (Strike Back).

Banished will come to BBC Two »

Ripper Street and the value of fan campaigns

27 February 2014 1:21 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Feature Louisa Mellor 28 Feb 2014 - 07:00

Cancelled drama Ripper Street is coming back, but what part did the fan campaign truly play in its return?

“None of this would have been possible without the fans” is a phrase we’re used to hearing at this time of year, usually from actors in sparkly outfits on posh stages accepting this that or another award. Is it, though, ever more than a platitude?

When it was announced in late 2013 that BBC One’s Ripper Street had been cancelled due to lower-than-expected ratings, the fan response was immediate. #SaveRipperStreet sped around Twitter, Facebook pages sprang up, and so did a petition attracting over 10,000 signatures in its first week (and topped out at over 40,000).

This week, news arrived that Ripper Street had beaten the cancellation and was to return for a third series. A deal had been struck between the programme’s makers, »

"Ripper Street" has been renewed for a Season 3 on BBC America. The surprising news comes just a few months after the series had supposedly been canceled.

In addition to the renewal, "Ripper Street" has a digital-streaming deal with Amazon, which acquired the U.K. subscription rights. Season 3 will begin production in May 2014.

Taking place just before the beginning of the 20th century, "Ripper Street" chronicles the lawmen of "H-Division," who struggle to bring order to the dark streets of London's most dangerous streets. Those same streets of London's Whitechapel district had previously played host to the notorious Jack the Ripper.

Starring Matthew Macfadyen, Jerome Flynn, Adam Rothenberg and MyAnna Buring, Season 2 of "Ripper Street" premiered Saturday, Feb. 22 on BBC America.

Ripper Street returns: Fan outcry at axing led to revival, say stars

26 February 2014 6:31 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Prepare to return to Ripper Street. The gothic period thriller was axed by the BBC late last year, prompting an outcry from fans, but will return for an eight-episode third series thanks to a new co-production deal with Amazon Prime Instant Video - formerly LoveFilm.

Series three will debut online and air sometime later on BBC One, though Amazon is yet to decide if it will release the entire series in one batch or in instalments.

The platform may be different, but otherwise it's business as usual for Ripper Street. For starters, all of the main cast will be back, with MyAnna Buring, who plays Long Susan, expressing her delight at "spearheading something new" for UK television.

"This is a first for a British television show," the actress said at a press conference announcing the show's revival. "That's incredibly exciting to be a part of."

'.Downton Abbey' Recap: Lady Mary Says 'No' To Lord Gillingham's Proposal; Anna Scarred From Rape

19 January 2014 9:00 PM, PST | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Downton Abbey returned this week with Anna (Joanne Froggatt) still reeling from the sexual assault she faced at the hands of Green (Nigel Harman), Lord Gillingham’s valet. Oblivious to the actions of his employee, Lord Gillingham (Tom Cullen) continues to fall madly in love with the widowed Lady Mary (Michelle Dockery).

Anna Deals With Sexual Assault

Anna struggles with accepting that she bears no responsibility for what Green did to her. As a result, she’s walking around ravaged by guilt and with a sense that she’s brought the dirtiness upon herself. Bates (Brendan Coyle) knows that something is up with his wife, but seems no closer to the truth. The rest of Downton also notices that something is troubling the normally good-humored Anna, although, like Bates, no one knows the truth besides Mrs. Hughes (Phyllis Logan).

Mrs. Hughes urges Anna to reveal what Green did to her, »

12 January 2014 9:00 PM, PST | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Downton Abbey commenced last night’s episode with honored guests making their arrival for a party at the British estate. Among the guests is Lord Gillingham (Tom Cullen), who brings along his valet Green (Nigel Harman).

Lord Gillingham & Lady Mary

The affable Lord Gillingham, who’s single – unless you count the woman he’s courting – does his best to win over Lady Mary (Michelle Dockery). If his first attempt is any indication, he’s going to need some help. After telling Mary he has no wife or children, he asks, “What about you?” Remembering her husband Matthew Crawley’s (Dan Stevens) death, he adds, “I just wasn’t thinking. Please forgive.”

Things take a positive turn for Gillingham when only he and Mary end up going horseback riding. Mary opens up in the alone time, telling her childhood friend about the many ways in which her late husband changed her. »

'Downton Abbey' Recap: Mary Sheds Her Mourning Clothes; Robert Learns Mary Will Inherit Estate

5 January 2014 9:00 PM, PST | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Downton Abbey returned from last season’s tear fest with Lady Mary (Michelle Dockery) still recovering from Matthew’s (Dan Stevens) fatal celebratory drive after the birth of their firstborn son.

'Downton Abbey' Recap

Upstairs, Isobel (Penelope Wilton), like Mary, grieves for Matthew. Robert (Hugh Bonneville), however, seems almost glad that Mary’s husband and potential future head of the English estate is out of the picture. His wife Cora (Elizabeth McGovern), meanwhile, is preoccupied with finding a new maid in light of O’Brien’s (Siobhan Finneran) departure to India with Lady Flintshire.

In the servants’ area downstairs there’s still trouble brewing in the four-pointed love story involving Alfred (Matt Milne), Ivy (Cara Theobold), Jimmy (Ed Speleers) and Daisy (Sophie McShera). Thomas (Rob James-Collier) has made it his mission to drum up as much drama between the foursome as possible, causing concern for Mrs. Patmore (Lesley Nicol). Meanwhile, »
