Monty Python’s Terry Jones Diagnosed With Dementia

23 September 2016 1:05 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Director and Monty Python star Terry Jones has been diagnosed with dementia, a statement on the BAFTA Cymru website confirmed.

A representative for Jones, whose most recent film work was as a co-writer on the 2105 picture “Absolutely Anything,” said the actor has primary progressive aphasia, a variant of frontotemporal dementia.

“This illness affects his ability to communicate and he is no longer able to give interviews,” the representative said.

Born in Wales, Jones is one of the five living members of iconic British comedy group Monty Python, whose first big success was the surreal and irreverent TV show “Monty Python’s Flying Circus,” which ran from 1969 to 1974.

The Pythons went on to make several films including “Monty Python and the Holy Grail,” a farcical medieval romp based on the legend of King Arthur and his knights of the round table, and “Monty Python’s The Life of Brian,”a story »

Doomwatch: revisiting a UK 'sci-fact' classic

31 March 2016 3:58 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »




Ground-breaking, intelligent, prescient 1970s drama Doomwatch, now out on DVD, is a British television classic...

Playing on the public's fear that 'this could actually happen', Doomwatch had a veneer of credibility unusual in the escapist television drama landscape of the late 60s/early 70s. This spring sees the most comprehensive haul of Doomwatch episodes released on DVD for the first time. The nickname for the "Department for the Observation and Measurement of Scientific Work", the series first appeared on BBC1 on Monday 9th February 1970 at 9.40pm. It followed half an hour of comedy from Kenneth Williams, which must have surely heightened its dramatic impact.

The series would run in tandem with the early Jon Pertwee era of Doctor Who; the first episode made its debut two days after part two of Doctor Who And The Silurians. The two shows undoubtedly shared a synergy of ideas - not to mention cast and crew. »

Fawlty Towers: Hotel that Inspired John Cleese Series to Be Demolished

18 March 2016 1:14 PM, PDT | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

The Torquay hotel that inspired John Cleese and Connie Booth to create Fawlty Towers is being demolished. The Guardian reports that retirement flats will be built in its place. Cleese and Booth starred in the BBC Two sitcom with Prunella Scales and Andrew Sachs. Fawlty Towers ran for two non-concurrent series (seasons) in 1975 and 1979.

The Monty Python comedy group (aka The Pythons) reportedly stayed at Torquay's Gleneagles Hotel in the early '70s, while shooting Monty Python's Flying Circus. Flabbergasted by the rude behavior of then-owners Donald and Beatrice Sinclair, most of the team moved on. Booth and Cleese, who were married at the time, stayed on to study the couple's behavior. Per The Guardian, Cleese described Mr. Sinclair as "the most wonderfully rude man I have ever met."
