Happy 90th June Brown! A celebration of Dot Cotton, EastEnders' coiffured queen

16 February 2017 2:23 AM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

She’s been playing Albert Square’s chain-smoking misery guts for the past 32 years. Long may she reign

Gossiping, chain smoking and preaching the word of the Lord: Dot Branning (formerly Cotton) is Albert Square’s self-appointed conscience. And as June Brown turns 90, she remains the backbone of the soap that made her famous 32 years ago. Her character has survived everything EastEnders has thrown at her, including endless shifts in the launderette, the death of her beloved son Nick and kidney cancer. Scandals keep on spinning around her, and while her eyesight is failing her strength, humour and (sometimes unwanted) advice never does.

Avengers: Infinity War first look, The Batman director, The BAFTAs and Danny Dyer as Doctor Who – Weekend News Roundup

12 February 2017 11:00 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Rounding up this weekend’s big news stories…

War Is Coming

With production now in full swing, Marvel decided to kick off the promotion for its hugely-anticipated superhero epic Avengers: Infinity War, releasing a first-look behind-the-scenes featurette from the first day of filming, complete with concept artwork, and on-set comments from Robert Downey Jr. (Iron Man), Tom Holland (Spider-Man) and Chris Pratt (Star-Lord). You can watch the featurette here, and check out Samuel Brace’s ‘Trying to Remember the Virtues of the Marvel Cinematic Universe‘ and Anghus Houvouras’ ‘Why Thanos Will Make or Break Avengers: Infinity War‘.

Batfleck Replaced

Well, in the director’s chair, at least. Yes, just a couple of weeks after Ben Affleck decided to vacate the director’s chair on The Batman, Warner Bros. has enlisted Cloverfield, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and War of the Planet of the Apes helmer Matt Reeves to »

Danny Dyer wants to take over from Peter Capaldi on Doctor Who

12 February 2017 3:00 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With Peter Capaldi announcing that he’s calling time on his role as The Doctor, the bookmakers wasted little time in drawing up a shortlist for his potential successor on the long-running BBC sci-fi Doctor Who.

One name that was perhaps unsurprisingly absent from the initial betting was Danny Dyer, but the EastEnders star has now revealed that he’d be keen to take on the role as the first Cockney Doctor.

“I think I could do it easy,” Dyer told The Daily Star. I’d keep my accent too.”

Dyer’s contract on EastEnders is apparently up later this year, so schedule-wise, he’d be free to take over from Capaldi, who is set to make his exit from Doctor Who in this year’s Christmas Special.

‘No one’s faced it down’: Arinzé Kene on tackling the UK riots in Good Dog

9 February 2017 6:23 AM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

He’s played Sam Cooke, an EastEnders bad boy and a closeted footballer in The Pass. Now, Arinzé Kene has returned to writing plays – and to the violent summer of 2011 – with a searing account of escalating tension in London

Arinzé Kene puts himself into his plays. Not, as some actor-playwrights do, with plum parts and killer lines, but by threading his own life into the shows he stages. “All these plays are part of my story,” he says. “They’re all part of the makeup of me.”

The thing that strikes you about Kene is his gentleness. For a big guy, 6ft and broad-shouldered, there’s something prim about the soft-spoken 29-year-old sipping peppermint tea. His eyes, deep chestnut and long-lashed, are quite disarming.

Roots review: this remake is brutal and harrowing – but it needs to be

8 February 2017 11:20 PM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Unflinching in its portrayal of the horror of the slave trade and with a breakout performance from former EastEnder Malachi Kirby, the story of Kunta Kinte deserves a wider audience

Forty years after the original Us TV adaptation of Alex Haley’s book Roots: The Saga of an American Family, the History channel releases this new version, Roots (BBC4), first shown in the Us last year. I was two when the original became a runaway hit and I’m ashamed to say I haven’t sought out the DVD since. The original isn’t the kind of series broadcasters seem keen to repeat for some reason. But this harrowing tale of human subjugation and suffering has lost none of its power to shock. At a time when many are trying to focus on what unites rather than divides us (for obvious reasons), it’s a shame this remake is »

Official Trailer for Matthew Goode’s The Hatton Garden Job breaks out

27 January 2017 5:58 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Zehra Phelan

Back in 2015, Britain witnessed a robbery that could have been straight out of the movies. It was a throwback crime to the days of the Great Train Robbery of 1963, a crime which made the likes of Buster Edwards and Ronnie Biggs household names. It was only a matter of time before this new story was adapted for the big screen and The Hatton Garden Job is just that film.

The Hatton Garden Job is directed by Tower Block and I Am Soldier writer and director Ronnie Thompson, though looking at the new trailer anyone would think this has a touch of Guy Ritchie about it. The cast is none too shabby either; the gang of aging criminals is lead by Brian Reader who is played by Larry Lamb who may be most recognisable as Gavin’s Dad in Gavin and Stacey. He also had the evil role »
