Television, stage and film actor best known for her role as Mo Butcher in the BBC's EastEnders

Edna Doré, who has died aged 92, was not only an outstanding character actor, best known for playing the battleaxe Mo Butcher, mother of Mike Reid's character, Frank Butcher, in the BBC's long-running soap EastEnders, but also an outstanding character; she was an authentic south Londoner who never lost her accent, or forthrightness, and delighted everyone she worked with.

She once told a radio interviewer that she was so fed up with being labelled a virgin in her early days at the Croydon Rep in 1937 that she asked the director of the company if he would help her to shed this unwanted burden. He invited her round to his place at 2.30pm the next day: "It lasted about five minutes, and that was that. Job done."

USA Offers Sneak Peek at ‘Rush’

10 April 2014 2:00 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

USA Network is shaking off its long-standing blue-skies approach to programming with a slate of edgier serialized dramas planned for later this year.

During tonight’s finale of “Suits,” viewers will get a sneak peek at “Rush,” slated for a third-quarter bow. “Rush,” from Fox 21, stars Tom Ellis (“EastEnders”) as a hard-partying on-call Hollywood doctor who’ll treat any ailment – as long as his clients can pay his cash-only premium.

The cable net is also planning late 2014 debuts for the event-series “Dig,” from executive producers Tim Kring (“Heroes”) and Gideon Raff (“Homeland”), starring Jason Isaacs and Anne Heche, as well as the provocative “Satisfaction,” from executive producer Sean Jablonski and starring Matt Passmore and Stephanie Szostak as a married couple in crisis.

Soaps need to represent East Asian communities, says Labour MP

10 April 2014 12:53 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Labour MP Gareth Thomas has called for soaps to better represent East Asian communities in Britain.

The MP for Harrow West also urged new Culture Secretary Sajid Javid to make sure the Arts Council and Ofcom do more to promote and monitor the diversity of the shows' employees.

He said that soaps like EastEnders and Coronation Street have "disappointing" records when it comes to casting East Asian characters.

The politician explained: "In nearly 30 years I'm told EastEnders has only ever had one regular East Asian character, a young female DVD seller who lasted just six months.

"Given that the East End of London remains one of our most ethnically diverse areas, it's a little odd that Albert Square hasn't had so much as even the proverbial clichéd Chinese takeaway.

"Coronation Street has a similarly disappointing record, waiting until 2011 before an East Asian character appeared there - again they lasted just four months. »
