No one else should play Inspector Morse, says his creator Colin Dexter

25 March 2014 6:33 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

First there was John Thaw, then there was young Shaun Evans. Now there must never be anyone else to take on the role of the detective, stipulates a clause in the writer's will

Name: Inspector Endeavour Morse.

Age: Deceased.

Appearance: Either old, grey-haired and cerebral or young, blondish and slightly less cerebral.

Nothing in between? Nope. Nothing at all. When Inspector Morse was in his late 20s, he looked a lot like the actor Shaun Evans. Then he vanished for a couple of decades, came back looking a lot like John Thaw and then he died.

What about the missing years? We'll never find out. Creator Colin Dexter has made it as clear as possible that Evans, star of the 60s-set ITV prequel series Endeavour, will be the last actor ever to play Morse.

How has he managed that? By writing a clause in his will forbidding anyone else from playing the detective. »

Volume of men's poetry choices is a real tear-jerker

22 March 2014 6:00 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

A father-and-son editing team has compiled a new anthology in which 100 prominent male figures reveal the lines that make them cry

The cover of a new collection of poetry should probably carry a sticker bearing Shakespeare's warning: "If you have tears, prepare to shed them now."

Poems That Make Grown Men Cry is an anthology of some of the most emotive lines in literature chosen by 100 famous and admired men, ranging from Daniel Radcliffe to Nick Cave, John le Carré and Jonathan Franzen. Published next month and edited by the journalist and biographer Anthony Holden and his film-producer son, Ben, the book is winning praise for introducing male readers to unfamiliar works – and emotions.

Contributor Simon Schama has tweeted enthusing about his choice, Wh Auden's Lullaby, the poem that opens with the words "Lay your sleeping head, my love, Human on my faithless arm." Auden turns out to be the »

Lewis: UK Drama Hasn't Ended, Renewed for Season Eight

19 February 2014 10:33 PM, PST | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

Though it was widely reported that Lewis had ended, ITV maintained that the series would likely continue. They've now renewed the series for an eighth season of six one-hour episodes. Production will begin next month.

There's no word on when they'll start airing. Here in the Us, Lewis is carried by PBS. It should be noted that, few years back, PBS made two seasons out of three of the UK seasons. As a result, these new episodes would be season seven here in the States.

Here's the official press release:

ITV commissions a new series of Lewis starring Kevin Whately and Laurence Fox from ITV Studios

The ‘perfect’ detective team of Lewis and Hathaway are set to return to ITV in six new episodes of Lewis, one of ITV’s best-loved and most enduring dramas. »

Do ad breaks make for better dramas?

30 January 2014 5:30 AM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Viewers who dislike being sold sunshine holidays mid-programme may opt for the new pay channel ITV Encore. But adverts change the structure of TV – and not always in a bad way

The news that ITV is setting up its first pay channel – ITV Encore, which will show original and repeat dramas for subscribers – first appeared on the business pages, which is understandable as it marks a significant break from the commercial channel's advertiser-funded model. But the move is also artistically significant.

One of the most fundamental differences between dramas on ITV and the BBC is structural: a scriptwriter paid from the licence fee writes in a single block of 50-120 minutes, while an author whose cash is coming from ads has to engineer between three and six climaxes or transitions during a narrative of those lengths.

Some writers who have worked for both sides – including Chris Chibnall, whose credits include »

Last Passenger DVD Review

23 January 2014 1:37 PM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Omid Nooshin,

Starring: Dougray Scott, Kara Tointon, Iddo Goldberg, David Schofield, Lindsay Duncan, Joshua Kaynama,     

 Running Time: 97 Minutes

Certificate: 15

Last Passenger hit me from out of nowhere. The little British thriller with big aspirations has a rough-around-the-edges charm that permeates throughout, but can a small British production really hit the highs of Hollywood’s hitters? Well, whatever it lacks in production values it more than makes up for with great performances and nail-biting suspense.

With a dread filled build-up where you just know something isn’t quite right, we are introduced to a seemingly random bunch of characters on the commute home. A doctor with the ability to diagnose by just looking at a patient, Lewis (Scott), is travelling with his son Max (Kaynama). As the train begins to miss certain stops, it appears that the last 6 passengers have had their journey hijacked by an unknown assailant for unknown reasons. »

'Sleepy Hollow's' Tom Mison: 'Ichabod Crane is the hardest part I've played'

6 January 2014 11:00 AM, PST | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

"Ichabod is the hardest part I've played," Tom Mison, star of the freshman fantasy-drama "Sleepy Hollow," airing Mondays on Fox, tells Zap2it. "There's so much that we need to balance with him. To slightly veer in any one direction a little too much, and it will collapse."

"Sleepy Hollow" can be described as a combination of author Washington Irving (in particular, his stories "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow" and "Rip Van Winkle"), the film "National Treasure" and the biblical book of Revelation.

Mison's Ichabod Crane was a spy for Gen. George Washington during the Revolutionary War, when he beheaded the Hessian Horseman and apparently perished. But, he survived and slumbered underground for over two centuries, only to emerge in present-day Sleepy Hollow, N.Y.

Stalked by the now-Headless Horseman and facing a variety of deadly supernatural forces, Ichabod has partnered with local police Lt. Abby Mills (Nicole Beharie »
