111 things we learned about Sherlock from the series 3 DVDs

25 November 2014 3:44 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Discarded plots, quotes from canon, Martin Freeman's hatred of Watson's moustache... Here's a long list of Sherlock series 3 trivia...

Released this month, the collector’s edition Sherlock series 3 DVDs are crammed with nerd succour, from the episodes one and three commentaries by Mark Gatiss, Steven Moffat, Sue Vertue and Una Stubbs, to behind-the-scenes featurettes, falling-over and dancing outtakes, footage from episode read-throughs, a deleted scene in which Lars Mikkelsen licks Benedict Cumberbatch, technical special effects gubbins, clips from the only existing television interview with Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, and - we almost forgot - the series itself.

For Sherlock fans who haven’t yet had the pleasure, we’ve ploughed through all the bonus material on the discs, turning up the odd bit of trivia treasure as we did so. Find out below about Mark Gatiss and Steven Moffat's plans for Sherlock to teach Mary the violin, Benedict Cumberbatch »

New Jekyll & Hyde Drama Planned

24 November 2014 3:03 AM, PST | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

If it seems only a few years since someone created a new televised take on Robert Louis Stevenson’s The Strange Case Of Dr. Jekyll And Mr Hyde, that’s because it was, thanks to Steven Moffat’s Jekyll in 2007. Yet ITV now has Fast Show veteran Charlie Higson plotting his own version for a new series.Higson, who has established himself as a novelist in addition to his TV work, has come up with an idea to follow Robert Jekyll, the grandson of the original doctor, in the 1930s. His grandfather’s experiments have left the family with a curse that Robert has inherited – usually a sensitive, naive man, he slips unwillingly between two personalities when he’s stressed or threatened. Hulk-style, he becomes a superhero with strength, speed and invulnerability that thrives on taking risks and is always getting into trouble. The two sides are eternally wrestling for »

ITV orders Charlie Higson-written Jekyll & Hyde drama

24 November 2014 2:52 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

A new ten-part action adventure series based on R.L. Stevenson's Dr Jekyll And Mr Hyde is coming to ITV...

Here's an exciting addition to our recent overview of new UK supernatural and sci-fi TV due to arrive over the next year: ITV has commissioned a ten-part drama series from writer Charlie Higson based on Robert Louis Stevenson's 1886 novella, The Strange Case Of Dr Jekyll And Mr Hyde. According to ITV, the series will "exude mystery, fantasy, horror and sci-fi", which all sounds right up our street.

Higson's series will move the action up a few decades, setting Stevenson's story of a young doctor's Hulk-like transformations into a creature with superhuman abilities against the backdrop of 1930s London.

That's not the only change to the original either - this Jekyll's condition is one inherited from his grandfather - the original Dr Jekyll - and not brought about his own experimentations. »

How Doctor Who series 8 tapped into horror

9 November 2014 4:05 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The directors of Doctor Who's latest series brought back the scares in a big way. Well, fear is a superpower...

Warning: contains spoilers for every episode of the eighth series of Doctor Who.

We were promised back in August that the Peter Capaldi era of Doctor Who would mark a departure from the adventurous fairy tale approach of Matt Smith's run.

“Darker” and “edgier” are buzz words that have been applied to countless Hollywood sequels, but the eighth series actually lived up to that promise and by September, the tabloid press were dispensing think-pieces about whether or not it had become too scary for children (“scary” here standing in for “complicated” in Smith's era and “heretical” when David Tennant got a lift off a couple of angel robots in Voyage Of The Damned.)

All moral panics aside, this series brought back the scares in a big, bad way. »

New Who Review – “Death in Heaven”

9 November 2014 7:30 AM, PST | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

When there’s no more room in Hell, the dead will walk the Earth.  As Cybermen.  See what he did there?  The Master is back, and has been working on this plot for Quite a long time. Some old friends return for the fight, we say goodbye (for now, anyway) to some others, and oh goodness, were there still surprises.  I don’t know why you’d be reading this recap before you saw the episode, but if you are, don’t.  Because it makes much more sense to know about the…

Death In Heaven

By  Steven Moffat

Directed by Rachel Talalay

As things rather ended in the moment last week, this week’s adventure starts just the same.  Clara, when discovered by the newly minted Cyberman, takes the lessons she’s learned throughout the year and put them to use – she lies through her teeth.  She claims to be The Doctor, »

Sherlock: Doctor Who's Douglas Mackinnon to direct new episode

5 November 2014 3:37 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Doctor Who director Douglas Mackinnon has confirmed that he will be working on Sherlock.

Mackinnon revealed on Twitter that he will be helming an episode of the hit BBC drama starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman.

The next episode of Sherlock will be a one-off special, with filming expected to begin in January. A full fourth series will then shoot later in 2015 for broadcast the following year.

Mackinnon has previously collaborated with Sherlock co-creator Steven Moffat on seven episodes of Doctor Who - including 2013's 'Cold War' written by Mark Gatiss.

He first worked with Moffat on 2007 drama series Jekyll and has also directed five episodes of award-winning crime thriller Line of Duty.

Earlier this year, Moffat claimed that the "devastating" outline for the new Sherlock had "practically reduced [the] cast to tears".

On Set with Acclaimed Indie Sci-fi The Machine

18 March 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Back in August 2012 when the world’s attention was squarely focussed on London, down in Wales, and in point of fact Bridgend, a quiet town just outside Cardiff, in a warehouse in an industrial estate of all places, a brand new science fiction film was being filmed, one that takes place in a world dissimilar enough to where we are. “We haven’t seen much of it [Bridgend] because we’ve been filming in here [The Warehouse], this is an underground bunker, and we’re shooting in a real MoD site in St. Athans, which is just outside Cardiff, so we’re using that as the exterior.” producer John Giwa-Amu tells us as we sit down for an introduction to The Machine in the back of the warehouse, where light breaks into the room just enough to remind some of the cast and crew what the outside world is like.

Doctor Who: 10 Great Writers For Future Series

16 January 2014 2:50 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Let’s be honest- Doctor Who is in a rut. I cannot believe that Steven Moffat, as recently commented, planned everything from the beginning – that he intended everything that happened in Series 5 and 6 to be a direct consequence of what happened in Time of The Doctor.

The show is convoluted, and though even more popular than ever before, it’s nowhere near as engaging as it used to be. As wonderful as Matt Smith’s performance was- truly one of the great Doctors- the writing has under-performed him from the start.

Steven Moffat is one of modern television’s great writers, the man behind such classics as Jekyll, Sherlock, Blink and The Empty Child. The man is a genius- have you seen His Last Vow yet? Simply incredible! So what’s happened to the show he adores under his reign as showrunner?

There’s been many an argument asking this »
