Jason Isaacs: 'I like being anonymous'

20 June 2011 4:02 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

The star of the BBC's Case Histories on being a reluctant sex symbol, his need to help people – and how he hopes Mel Gibson will find some peace

'I am not a sex symbol," says Jason Isaacs, fixing me with those dreamy blue eyes. Well, that's not what everybody else is saying. The Observer's Euan Ferguson wrote that Isaacs has "won his promotion to officially approved national lust object". He's apparently right up there with Colin Firth and Daniel Craig, thanks to his performance as soulful, damaged and yet stirringly buff private detective Jackson Brodie in BBC1's Case Histories, which concludes tonight.

Think of that moment in last night's episode when Brodie woke up in his hospital bed scarred, amnesiac and yet pleasingly barrel-chested after trying to drag a collapsed old lady out of her car that had crashed on to the Aberdeen-Edinburgh main line. You can stop now. »

Angela Scoular obituary

Wuthering Heights star, Bond girl and Leslie Phillips's wife

Angela Scoular, who has died aged 65 after reportedly taking her own life, was known as the wife of the actor Leslie Phillips, but she also had several acting roles of her own that brought her public attention.

She twice played a "Bond girl". First, she took the part of Buttercup, sharing a bath with David Niven as James Bond, in the spoof, "unofficial" release Casino Royale (1966). Then she was the flirtatious farmer's daughter Ruby, bedded by once-only-007 George Lazenby, in On Her Majesty's Secret Service (1969), which also featured the former Avenger Diana Rigg and the future New Avenger Joanna Lumley.

Scoular later had a regular role as Lady Agatha Shawcross in You Rang, M'Lord? the "upstairs, downstairs" sitcom set in the 1920s, from the Dad's Army creators Jimmy Perry and David Croft. As the mistress of Lord Meldrum (Donald Hewlett »

Comic Relief's mix of mirth and misery done to a turn

18 March 2011 5:28 PM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

BBC show features appearances from Andy Murray, Kim Cattrall and Simon Callow - plus Ronnie Corbett hiding in the bushes

Who knows how many favours the Comic Relief powers-that-be had to call in, but they managed to open with a clip of The King's Speech – intercut with scenes of Lenny Henry pointing agonisedly to his watch as Colin Firth stutters in the sports ground and telling him they've only got seven hours to get everything in. And then – boom! – we're into the studio and everything that is Comic Relief's 2011 outing.

The hosts are always some of the safest hands in the business, but the early shift naturally goes to the safest of them all – this year, Claudia Winkleman and Michael McIntyre.

In a moment typical of the background thoughtfulness and intelligence that marks out Comic Relief from the herd, Winkleman lifts us gently over the hurdle of how we can »
