When Luther returns for a new two-part special, he'll be without his faithful sidekick Justin Ripley for the first time.
Ripley was killed off in the BBC thriller's previous series - aired in 2013 - but Warren Brown, the actor who played him, has insisted he's happy to watch the new episodes as a fan.
"Of course, I'd love to still be involved, but I was very happy leaving at that time and with such a great storyline that made such an impact, that Luther fans still talk about.
"Now I can watch this new series as a viewer, knowing nothing about it. I could've had access to the scripts, but I purposely wanted to watch it as a viewer. »
1. Ray Donovan - David Moynihan, Editor
Airs on Sky Atlantic, Wednesdays at 9pm
We're now into the third run of the Liev Schreiber-fronted drama, and the season hasn't dipped one iota since the shocking, deadly twists of its predecessors.
Donovan is a wolfish 'problem fixer' for big-money Hollywood, but beneath the brutish exterior - all guns and grunts - it's his constant struggles with his own family's failings that form the tender heart of the show. Viewers are voyeurs in the ugly reality that lies behind the glitzy mask of La, where money is the driving force for corrupt officials, hollow celebrities and violent gangsters.
Schreiber's muscular and intoxicating performance - along with magnificent scene stealing by Jon Voigt as the larger-than-life rogue grandfather Micky - powers the gripping storylines.

Being a part of the modern television landscape comes with a number of challenges, with different groups facing different obstacles, both in doing their job and in surviving in the industry at large. Over the past few years, The Hollywood Reporter has taken the Emmy nominations as a way to gather luminaries from different fields to talk about their experiences and challenges in their own words.
2015 is no exception in that regard, and with the Emmy awards approaching, the first of these roundtables has been released. The first conversation involves some of the 2015 nominees from both Lead Actress in a Dramatic Role and Lead Actress in a Limited Series or Movie, bringing together Taraji P. Henson (nominated for Empire), Viola Davis (nominated for How To Get Away With Murder), Jessica Lange (nominated for American Horror Story), and Maggie Gyllenhaal (nominated for The Honorable Woman) along with Lizzy Caplan and Ruth Wilson. »

Based on the bestselling novel written in secret by Irène Némirovsky in 1941, but only discovered fully 50 years later after being kept by her daughter, Suite Francaise is a moving tale of the struggles people faced during the German occupation in France and the huge risks some took in the name of others survival.
What’s particularly unique about this story is the authenticity of literally being written during World War II. This compelling re-telling on the small screen really brings forward the heart of the people within it. Nemirovsky’s words were originally believed to be an every day journal but what they actually reveal is a genuine insight into the domestic lives of regular people at the »

Winston Churchill famously said, “Democracy is the worst form of government except all the others that have been tried.” And the Emmys might very well be the worst TV awards ever devised, except perhaps for the rest of them.
Nominations for the 67th annual Emmy Awards surely had something to offend everyone. The outrages ranged from legitimately puzzling oversights (CW’s “Jane the Virgin” and “The Affair’s” Ruth Wilson among them) to those where the righteous fury probably had as much to do with pumping up Web traffic (“Empire” snubbed! “Scandal” slighted!) as anything else.
But honestly, what would those critics prefer? The Golden Globes, an organization with a small and shadowy body of voters, and a colorfully speckled history? Granted, the Emmys have inherent biases against genre shows, but the Globes have their own unique quirks, including an inordinate penchant for European talent and stars with high Q scores. »

Fans of fictional characters often get in an uproar when a specific aspect of that character's personality is changed be it their gender, race, age, sexuality, beliefs or other traits. In some cases it can often be a valid justification as the aspect changed is a key part of that character and how it works in the narrative. Thus by changing it, the original intent of the story is ruined.
In other cases there's a bit more flexibility. In the case of "Doctor Who," you have a unique position - here's a character called The Doctor where the key thing about him is that he regularly regenerates, and when he does he changes drastically both physically and psychologically. In fact the more change the better as it provides a more interesting contrast to what came before, and that frequent changing has been the key to the show's longevity over the years. »

Give the Emmys credit for at least trying to keep up with the current explosion of quality television.
This year, the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences expanded the Best Comedy and Drama Series categories to seven slots each, and they made other minor changes (online voting!) meant to bring the awards into the 21st century. Still, there's more good TV now than even the Academy can keep up with, so the outrage and shock over the snubs and surprises in this morning's Emmy nominations is inevitable. Here are some of the most astonishing omissions and inclusions.

The biggest shocker here is the snub of "Empire," the season's breakout hit. Was it too soapy or guilty-pleasure-ish for the Academy to take seriously? Fellow newbie/Twitter sensation "How to Get Away With Murder" was also snubbed. Golden Globe fave "The Affair" got no love, here or in other major categories. »

This year's Emmy Award nominations have been announced and "Game of Thrones" topped the list with a whopping 24 nominations, followed by "American Horror Story: Freak Show" with 19 noms and "Olive Kitteridge" with 13.
HBO was by far the network to be with 124 nominations in total across the prime time and technical categories. They were followed by ABC (42), CBS & NBC (41), FX (38), Fox (35), Netflix (34), PBS (29), Comedy Central (25) and AMC (24).
With a new online voting system, the list of nominees are a bit fresher than usual with a lot of first-time nominees in acting categories, and some notable absentees like network comedy stalwarts "The Big Bang Theory" and Melissa McCarthy in favour of fresher faces such as "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt". There was some excellent and overdue casting nominations such as Tatiana Maslany for "Orphan Black" and Taraji P. Henson for "Empire," along with the new 'Limited Series' element and more suitable classifications for some »
