The Living And The Dead episode 1 review

Episode one of handsome new BBC supernatural period drama The Living And The Dead feat. Colin Morgan ends on a gripping hook…

This review contains episode 1 spoilers.

Ashley Pharoah, the creator of The Living And The Dead, made his name writing genre TV with a twist. He and Matthew Graham added a time travel mystery to the police procedural in Life On Mars and Ashes To Ashes, then spliced the supernatural with court drama in Eternal Law.

Pharoah’s new series The Living And The Dead plays the same game. It’s a traditional Victorian ghost story with Something Else Going On. Two events in the first episode alert viewers to this fact – the vapour trail of a modern airplane in the 1894 Somerset sky and the closing sight of a twenty-first century woman, iPad in hand, walking around the nineteenth-century farmhouse in which the story is set. »

The British TV Show Invasion: 7 Reasons You Should Watch 'Doctor Who' Now

27 May 2016 12:19 PM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

"Doctor Who" is one of the longest-running franchises in all of space and time -- it's been on TV, radio, and bookshelves for more than 50 years, so there's a lot to dig into. With such a long history, you can join in on the fun anywhere, anytime. Here are the best reasons to join the Doctor in his time machine/spaceship, the Tardis, for adventures throughout the space-time continuum.

1. You Can Start Anywhere

Every fan has an opinion about the best place to start watching "Doctor Who." Some argue for beginning with the 1964 black-and-white series, and others advocate for jumping in with the more modern 2005 version of the franchise -- affectionately known as "Nu Who." Although "Doctor Who" is full of canonical rules, backstories, and in-jokes, most episodes are intended as standalone stories about the Doctor and his companions running into adventures throughout space and time.

‘The Good Wife’ Spinoff to Star Christine Baranski, Cush Jumbo in Negotiations at CBS All Access

12 May 2016 2:30 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Sources say CBS is in final negotiations to set up a spinoff of “The Good Wife” focusing on Christine Baranski’s Diane Lockhart character that would air on CBS All Access.

Actress Cush Jumbo, who joined the “Good Wife” cast in the show’s seventh and final season, is also expected to star in the spinoff. Sources cautioned that the deal is still in negotiations for a straight-to-series order and may not come to fruition. “Good Wife” co-creators/exec producers Robert and Michelle King would likely co-write the project with another “Good Wife” alum. They pair would be exec producers but not serve as showrunners.

Word that CBS is serious talks for a spinoff surfaced less than a week after “Good Wife” wrapped its Emmy-winning run on May 8. The series closer generated much discussion about the fate of its central characters and the denouement between Baranski’s Lockhart and Julianna Margulies’ Alicia Florrick. »

Saluting geek TV's "Zeppo" episodes

Buffy, Doctor Who, Star Trek and more have all devoted episodes to members of their supporting cast...

Over an extended run, some television shows give off the impression that all life in their universe revolves around a small number of characters, but if they run long enough, writers and producers will invariably have to look elsewhere every once in a whle. Maybe on another day to every other episode, when the forces of evil rally and all seems lost, the good guys are... otherwise occupied, leaving someone else to pick up the slack.

As a dramatic convention in pop culture, foregrounding minor characters dates at least as far back as Tom Stoppard's 1966 play Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead, which takes place “in the wings” of Shakespeare's Hamlet as the two minor characters have little comprehension of the tragic events going on concurrently. But over the years, geek »

We chat to Skulduggery Pleasant author about the movie adaptation, new trilogy Demon Road, horror influences, Feminism and Doctor Who

Derek Landy is excited. Next week, he's going to see two of his favourite 80s films on the big screen for the first time.

Doctor Who: Brian Blessed wants to be the next Doctor

50 years after rejecting the part, Brian Blessed has his eyes on the lead role in Doctor Who

Brian Blessed has been talking to Calibre magazine about Doctor Who, and how he’d like to take over in the Tardis – 50 years after refusing the same role - once Peter Capaldi is finished playing the Doctor. 

Back in 1966, Blessed recalls being in “in talks with the producers, who said, ‘We’re very keen for you to be the Doctor, to follow William Hartnell, and we’d like you to play him very young. You’ve got a very vivid imagination, Brian. You can be quite normal and then also very, very eccentric’”.

The mighty Mr Blessed turned down the role due to other commitments, and the job of following in Hartnell’s footsteps eventually went to Patrick Troughton. In 1986, Blessed appeared in the Colin Baker era episode Mindwarp, as King Yrcanos. »
