23 hours ago | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

Heroes Reborn has added another member to its team, but it still remains to be seen whether this new addition will be a hero or someone more villainous. Covert Affairs actress Nazneen Contractor is joining NBC’s upcoming revival in a “mysterious” new role. Contractor will be playing Farah, who Deadline describes as a “mysterious character” that is “militant, tough and stoic.” In addition to Covert Affairs, Contractor’s past TV credits include 24 and Revenge and, more recently, Scorpion, Castle, and Stalker. In addition to Contractor, the cast of Heroes Reborn will feature many new faces, such as Chuck‘s Zachary Levi, Judi Shekoni (EastEnders), Henry Zebrowski (A to Z) Robbie Kay (Once Upon a Time), Ryan Guzman (Pretty Little Liars), Kiki Sukezane (The Yokai King), Pruitt Taylor Vince (The Mentalist), Eve Harlow (The 100), Francesca Eastwood, and Toru Uchikado.

BBC iPlayer chief defends service after third monthly drop in a row

29 May 2015 4:50 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

The BBC has defended iPlayer after streams fell for the third month in a row, under continued pressure from rival on demand services including Netflix, Amazon, Channel 4, ITV and Sky.

The catch-up service had 271 million requests for TV and radio programmes in April, which is down from 278m in March, 299m in February and 343m in December, which set an all-time high record.

Peter Kay's Car Share sitcom was the most popular show overall, with 1.5m for its premiere episode and 3.7m for the series in total.

iPlayer chief Dan Taylor-Watt has posted a blog to "correct some misleading headlines", explaining that the service's popularity often fluctuates.

"BBC iPlayer usage changes significantly depending on the season with higher volumes of requests in the autumn and winter months, and lower volumes in the spring and summer," he said.

"Also, as the majority of iPlayer consumption is still catch-up TV, »

An EastEnders baby arrives kicking and screaming, plus the rest of the month in soaps

The Queen Vic’s landlords welcome a new arrival, Laurel’s transformation from mouse to monster is complete in Emmerdale, and Tracy Barlow is still scheming on the Street

“I’m like an extra from that Call The Midwife,” screeched EastEnders’ Sonia. Uh-oh. It’s happened again. Someone’s gone into labour in the Queen Vic. Those poor cleaners have barely had time to mop Kim’s waters off the toilet floor and there’s another baby on the way. So many women have crowned in the Vic that the pub should offer a lunchtime deal to the overdue females of Walford. A ploughman’s, a pint and an induction for a fiver.

This time around, the baby is a Carter, whose arrival was hastened by Linda falling down the stairs in fluffy pink boots. Lovely Linda, who only has to frown to spark the nation’s tears, hasn’t had the easiest of pregnancies, »

EastEnders producer criticises ITV for British Soap Awards editing

22 May 2015 11:40 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

EastEnders producer Dominic Treadwell-Collins has criticised ITV for some of its British Soap Awards coverage on Thursday evening (May 21).

The long-running BBC soap took home the coveted Best Soap prize at this year's ceremony, but Treadwell-Collins was left disappointed by the editing of this week's broadcast.

"Disappointed that our thanks for those behind the scenes was cut from tonight's show," the producer tweeted, before also expressing his disappointment over the broadcaster's scheduling for the night.

"Scheduled against BBC," he added. "Play nicely ITV."

ITV aired an hour-long episode of Emmerdale against EastEnders to lead into its coverage of the two hour event.

#EastEnders disappointed that our thanks for those behind the scenes was cut from tonight's show - scheduled against BBC. Play nicely ITV.

Anita Dobson rules out EastEnders return

21 May 2015 9:28 AM, PDT | Virgin Media - TV | See recent Virgin Media - TV news »

Anita Dobson doesn't think she could return to 'EastEnders' because too much time has passed. The 66-year-old actress became a household name in the 1980s playing Queen Vic landlady Angie Watts, and her volatile marriage with 'Dirty' Den had millions of viewers of the BBC One soap gripped. Anita left in 1988 and despite many characters returning to Albert Square over the years she doesn't think Walford will beckon again for her. When asked if she would ever consider returning as Angie, she said: ''Well I like to watch it, but I think I've been gone for too long now. I don't think »

Strictly Come Dancing 2015 lineup rumours: Which celebrities could take part this year?

20 May 2015 7:10 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Strictly Come Dancing is still months away, but the rumours about which celebrities could be taking part this year are really starting to heat up now - and they've been going since January. So it felt like a good time to start to put together all the speculation we've heard to see if we can figure out who'll be hitting the ballroom in the new series.

Whether these stars actually end up donning Lycra and glitter remains to be seen, but these are the most likely according to the rumours we've heard lately...

Ayda Field

Who? Actress (and Robbie Williams's wife)

The rumour: Ayda is the first person we spotted being linked to this year's Strictly... all the way back in January, less than a month after last year's series finished! Apparently, she was approached for the show last year but had to pull out because she became pregnant. »

First Look At ‘Warcraft’ Orc

18 May 2015 10:43 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Probably best known to UK audiences for his role as Sean Slater in Eastenders, we have just been given our first look at Robert Kazinsky’s character from the upcoming video game adaptation, Warcraft. Unrecognisable as an orc known as Orgrim, Kazinsky finally gets his pretty sizable teeth into a fantasy role after ‘personal reasons’ caused him to leave The Hobbit trilogy. That’s alright though, as he got to star in teh absolutely awesome Pacific Rim.

Duncan Jones directs, hoping to put the curse of the video game adaptation to rest. Warcraft is set in a fantasy world with warring orcs, mages, knights and so forth. As the games are fairly open in terms of story, the film and predicted resulting universe certainly has a lot of freedom to move around.

Speaking of Kazinsky in the role, Jones had this to say:
