Some actors can't escape the thin blue line, repeatedly turning up on screen as sergeant this and detective that. For Sherlock and Casualty's Loo Brealey, it's the long white coat (on television at least - in real life Brealey's also a fab playwright and journalist). After playing staff nurse Roxanne Bird in Casualty, the actress went on to play pathologist Molly Hooper in Sherlock, the role for which she's currently best known.
Next for Brealey is the role of a trailblazing Victorian doctor in Ripper Street series three. Brealey told the Radio Times, "I’m playing one of the first women doctors. I’m really excited because I did history at university and I love a bit of research. Elizabeth Garrett Anderson blazed the trail in the 1870s and in the »

So Edgar Wright won’t direct Ant-Man for Marvel after years of developing it with them. Let’s mourn the lost potential and, since he already made a superhero comic book film with Scott Pilgrim, celebrate his freedom to go make something independent of a well-established universe. Since we’re already doing one or the other (or a little bit of both), we might as well amplify the efforts now that Drew Goddard won’t be running the new Daredevil for Netflix. Latino-Review broke the news on the heels of Wright’s exit that the absurdly tall Cabin in the Woods writer/director will slide away from showrunner status to become a consultant for the blind superhero’s new adventures. Taking his place, according to The Hollywood Reporter, is Steven S. DeKnight (Spartacus, Buffy the Vampire Slayer) as Goddard focuses all of his energy on Sony’s Sinister Six. It would be reactionary and not at all »

Broadchurch was the big winner with three awards at UK TV's most glamorous event, and this is how Stuart Heritage saw the action unfold
Anyway, thats that for this evening. Were the winners worthy? Some of them. Do the Baftas change anything? Not really? How weird was it for me to not just look up who won an hour before any of this started? Extremely.
Still, thanks a lot for joining in. You really are the best. If youd like to follow me on Twitter, Im @StuHeritage, but youre not missing out on much if you dont. Thanks everyone.

Okay, so we might not be wearing our gladrags and we might not be sipping champagne, but who says a onesie and a takeaway can't be glamorous?
It's BAFTA night, and while we're not at the Theatre Royal, Drury Lane with all the best and brightest from the last year of television, at least we can join the party from our sofas. Yep, we'll be blogging along with the awards - which start at 8pm on BBC One - so grab your slippers and a cuppa and join in by tweeting @digitalspy and leaving your comments below...
And as a reminder, the awards actually start in "real life" at 7pm - but we'll be doggedly going along with the television broadcast and pretending we're not an hour behind everyone else, so there's no fear of spoilers. If you want things as they happen, we'll be updating our winners' list here. »
"The Mafia? I've shit 'em!"
Brutal. Compelling. Poignant. Prescient. Thrilling. All words synonymous with The Long Good Friday, John Mackenzie's masterpiece that propelled the late, great Bob Hoskins to film stardom in 1980 as the complex gangster Harold Shand. Its power to enthral and shock has not diminished in the intervening years, while its cultural value has soared as it provides a fascinating snapshot of a society in transition.
Charting the demise of Shand's empire as he seeks to turn himself into a legitimate businessman through a property deal with an American client, the film is laden with aesthetic articulations of violence that are horrendous yet gripping. This is epitomised by the gory sequence in which Shand's paranoia compels him to round up potential enemies and hang them upside down on meat hooks in an abattoir, complete with Pov shots from the captives to reinforce the chilling sense of horror. »
Gavin Logan dissects the new Star Wars cast for Episode VII….
It seems like an age ago when Disney announced the acquisition of LucasFilm for a whopping $4 billion and with it the exciting news that we would be getting more Star Wars movies. Since then exactly 2446 actors have been linked with possible roles in the upcoming Episode VII. Okay so that number was completely made up but it certainly feels close to that amount. Only a few days ago J.J. Abrams and company revealed the list of new names that would be joining some old faces and making their mark in the new Star Wars universe. Minutes later the internet broke.
Now that the dust has somewhat settled and we have all managed to regain our breath again I thought it might be a good idea to have a slightly closer look at the new cast and perhaps have a »

Since the announcement, fans have been searching for Ridley's past credits, which include a short indie movie titled Blue Season.
The five-minute sci-fi film was made in under 48 hours for a competition, and can be watched in full below:
Star Wars Episode 7 cast: Where you know them from
Star Wars Episode 7 cast revealed: The internet reacts
Ridley will soon have a role in the upcoming Inbetweeners Movie 2, and the indie horror project Scrawl.
Reports have claimed that the casting for Star Wars Episode VII may not be complete, and that there may be more female characters than just the two announced yesterday. »
With the major cast of Jj Abrams's Star Wars: Episode VII confirmed at long last, the hyperactive rumour mill isn't likely to wind down so much as shift focus - who are these people playing? How many roles are still to be cast? How involved is George Lucas, exactly?
But in the meantime, let's take a look at the seven actors that have been confirmed. While many of them couldn't be described as unknowns, a few of them do fall squarely into the "that guy" category - you've seen them in a handful of movies, but you may not know their name.

Digital Spy takes you through the new recruits' CV highlights below...
Ridley is the only new female cast member and one of only two women included in the entire announcement. She joins Carrie Fisher who will be returning to the Star Wars franchise and reprising her role as Princess Leia. (It’s worth noting that Fisher is credited as playing a ‘Leia Solo’ on IMDb.) However, the film is reportedly still looking to cast another actress to join the film in a “substantial role."
Very little is known about Ridley, a British actress who has only been acting professionally for roughly one year. Her credits, of which there are few, include one-episode guest spots in various English television series, including Casualty, Youngers, Toast of London, and a two episode run in Silent Witness. »
