For those who don't get a kick out of the live valuation of a George III mahogany pedestal desk on Antiques Roadshow, the gradual demise of a woman with bipolar disorder in Homeland, or the psychological mauling of a sub-standard pub singer on The X Factor, then Sunday nights have probably been pretty bereft of joy in recent years. Not for much longer, however: Yonderland, created by the cast of the award-winning children's sketch show Horrible Histories, is a new family comedy about a 33-year-old mum who enters a fantasy world through her kitchen cupboard. The show fuses the adventure and magic of Jim Henson's 1980s series The StoryTeller and his film The Dark Crystal with the surreal, sketch-based British humour of The Mighty Boosh and Monty Python's Flying Circus.

Brendan McCarthy has revealed concept art for a Wind in the Willows film.
The movie based on Kenneth Grahame's childhood classics was put in development in the mid-'90s before it was abandoned.
"These have been gathering dust, unseen, for twenty years... it's good to give an airing to what could have been a decent British film, from that 'handmade' era," the artist wrote on Facebook (via Robot 6).
"Sadly I have lost most of my film visuals material. I never thought it very important... I always considered my comics work to be the real deal...
"I noticed directors like to be able to show stuff to producers and investors before things are shot... It keeps them calm!"
