The Office 11 years on: What Ricky Gervais, Martin Freeman and co did next

6 August 2014 8:44 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Ricky Gervais has confirmed that The Office's David Brent will be heading to the big screen with his own movie, Life on the Road.

So as we anticipate what Brent has been up to since the end of the BBC hit comedy, here's what the cast have done since:

Ricky Gervais

Ricky Gervais played the lead role as David Brent - the embarrassing, toe-curling and cringeworthy boss of company Wernham Hogg, devoid of self-awareness but poised with an unwavering love for the paper merchants he manages.

Gervais went on to create comedy Extras with Stephen Merchant, which was co-produced by the BBC and HBO and aired between 2005 and 2007. Gervais played ambitious actor Andy Millman, afflicted with a useless agent played by Merchant. Guest stars have included Patrick Stewart, Samuel L Jackson, Ben Stiller and Kate Winslet.

In 2009, Gervais starred in, wrote and directed his feature comedy debut The Invention of Lying. »

Jimmy McGovern epic Australian convict drama lands all-star cast

12 March 2014 10:05 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Jimmy McGovern's epic new BBC Two drama series Banished has secured an impressive all-star cast list.

Being Human's Russell Tovey, Ripper Street's MyAnna Buring and Julian Rhind-Tutt (The Hour) will all star in the show, which is starting filming in Sydney, Australia next month.

Banished will follow the "lives, loves, relationships and battle for survival of a group of convicts" in New South Wales, Australia, 1788.

How the first convicts survived is the best story I've come across in over 30 years as a dramatist. When you've got something like that, you don't worry about the narrative; you just concentrate on the characters. That is what we did. Consequently, I don't think I've ever written anything so character-driven.Jimmy McGovern

Other cast members include Top of the Lake's David Wenham, Joseph Millson (Holby City), Ewan Bremner (Accused) and Orla Brady (Strike Back).

Banished will come to BBC Two »

Emergency! Call the camera crew. How saving lives became prime-time gold

3 March 2014 6:40 AM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

From the antiseptic routine of the wards to the thrill of a roadside rescue, we can't seem to get enough of medical documentaries – as new series An Hour to Save Your Life attests

A 31-year-old male has been "bulls-eyed" by a car and we're in the air ambulance, flying out from the Royal London hospital to a suburban street, where the man lies in a twisted, bloodied heap with his feet pointing in what even a layman would identify as the wrong direction. Known in the advanced trauma trade as a "Ped V Car" (pedestrian versus car), it's not looking good.

Take a deep breath, for this is TV's latest, in-your-face medical documentary format, An Hour To Save Your Life. We're are in the air and on the ground with unflappable, orange-clad paramedics as they attend patients "at the very edge of life" during the first "golden hour". Each 60-minute »
