Christopher Eccleston in 'The Fuse': First Look - picture

10 November 2011 1:01 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

A photograph of Christopher Eccleston filming his new BBC One drama The Fuse has been released. The drama, penned by Lark Rise to Candleford writer Bill Gallagher, stars Eccleston as a council official who has become increasingly disillusioned over the years. After an alcohol-fuelled night, Eccleston's character Daniel realises that he may be responsible for a murder, just as an act of redemption raises his public profile and lands him in the race for Mayor. The release of the photograph comes as it emerged that Dervla Kirwan has joined the cast as Daniel's wife Alex, while Ewen Bremner will play council official Jerry. Lyndsey Marshal will star as Daniel's sister Lucy, Andrew Scott will play (more) »

The Inbetweeners become Chickens

29 August 2011 2:27 AM, PDT | ScreenTerrier | See recent ScreenTerrier news »

The Inbetweeners' Joe Thomas and Simon Bird go back in time for a new comedy - where they chicken out of World War One.

They have teamed up with Thomas's long-term writing partner Jonny Sweet for a new show, Chickens, about three young men who avoid joining the army during the First World War. 

Chickens is a Channel 4 comedy, made by Big Talk Productions, which is about three youngsters who avoid combat in the First World War: George (played by Thomas) is a conscientious objector, Cecil (Bird) would love to be fighting for queen and country but his flat feet mean the army won't have him - and then there's Bert (Sweet), a "philandering scaredy-cat" on the run.

The comedy is based around how the three can win over the women of the village.

The young ladies of Rittle-On-Sea are played by a talented roster of actresses: comedienne Sarah Daykin, »

Another Teasing Cowboys & Aliens Clip Hints At Aliens

14 July 2011 10:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Putting clear water between its release date and that of the other big hitters of the summer may prove to be Cowboys and Aliens’ master stroke.

As Thor, Fast & Furious 5, X-Men, Green Lantern, Transformers and even Harry Potter eventually fade, C&A will have the cinemas to itself. Of course, this could utterly backfire, with audiences gorged and bloated on sci-fi and action spectacle and deciding to stay at home to watch repeats of Lark Rise to Candleford.

What is certain for the time being is that Jon Favreau and the marketing team at Universal/Dreamworks are doing a sterling job of teasing out the publicity material and not giving us too much too soon. It’s refreshing, though I will no doubt eat my words when, to my dismay, in a few days time we get one of those “see the first five minutes of C&A!” clips.

Just for a moment, I wanted a burkini too | Barbara Ellen

23 April 2011 4:06 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Nigella Lawson has been a victim of ludicrous beach protocol

My first thought on seeing Nigella Lawson in the burkini on Australia's Bondi Beach, was: "Do I want one?" Lifelong sun-phobic, beach-hating, bikini-loathing, miserable Victor Meldrew of the Sands sociopath that I am, would a burkini prove to be the answer to my non-Muslim prayers? Nope, I concluded, not when it made even the beautiful Nigella resemble a goth Oompa Loompa.

However, for a second there – just a second – I seriously considered whether I wanted a burkini and I bet quite a few other women out there fleetingly (ludicrously) considered it too. "Wrapping myself in a giant, sun-protective, sharia-friendly romper suit, with only my face showing, an outfit I'd never remotely consider for any other area of my life… could this [yearning gasp] be my new 'Beach Look'?" Well, no, probably not. The fact that it might be considered, even briefly, has »

Coming Home Again: An Advance Review of Upstairs Downstairs on PBS' Masterpiece

8 April 2011 9:47 AM, PDT | Televisionary | See recent Televisionary news »

"Home is not where you live, but where they understand you." - Christian Morganstern My, how time flies: It's been more than three decades since Rose Buck (Jean Marsh) walked out of the front door of 165 Eaton Place and into the future. For those of us who grew up on Upstairs, Downstairs (created by Marsh and Dame Eileen Atkins) watching the repeats on PBS or on DVD later, the show--which depicted the lives of the wealthy Bellamy clan and their servants below stairs--defined the period drama, transforming the stuffy recreations of aristos into a soap opera teeming with the hopes and dreams (and failures and foibles) of both the masters and the servants of a great London house. While there have been countless adaptations of period-set literature over the years (Austen and Dickens remain always in style), recently viewers have seen a resurgence in open-ended, serialized period dramas.

the oh-yes! DVD of the week: ‘Lark Rise to Candleford: Season Four’

4 April 2011 3:05 AM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

I caught some of the latest (and, sadly, it seems, the last) series of the BBC’s Lark Rise to Candleford when I arrived in London in January. My interest was piqued when I heard my 70something aunt and her grandchildren (my cousins), nine- and 13-year-old girls, gossiping about the characters as if they knew the Victorian villagers who populate the show. I figured any series that excites kids and grannies alike has got to be worth a look. And it was. Now I’m hooked, and have four years’ worth of the show to go back to. Gentle in a way that is rarely seen on British or American TV these day -- when both are dominated by gritty crime dramas and meanspirited comedies and reality shows -- it tells the simple, funny, bittersweet tales of the people of Lark Rise, a 19th-century Oxfordshire village, and Candleford, the slightly more sophisticated town nearby. »

Let's stop this Top of the Pops revival in its tracks

30 March 2011 8:08 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Though great in its day, the world does not need the return of a weekly half-hour ghetto for pop music

BBC Four is hosting a Top of the Pops night this Friday. From then on, the classic Thursday night slot will see episodes screened weekly, from that equivalent week, starting from 1976. Which, of course, is great: everyone loves a good Pan's People montage and the chance to see vintage Madonna clips. Except, of course, that's not where it will end. Next thing you know, it will have inspired another Facebook group, another Twitter hashtag and another guileless attempt to bring the thing back. Not in my name.

Top of the Pops was great and necessary in its day, but the world has changed. Think about what this campaign actually suggests: the return of a weekly half-hour ghetto for pop music, based around the singles chart, predicated on the idea that »

Dwayne Johnson, the impassive, former wrestling star known as the Rock, plays a getaway driver for a team of bank robbers whose loot was hijacked by another gang and nearly all of whom were murdered in cold blood. Miraculously, he survives with a metal plate in his head and is released after a decade in jail, to wreak revenge on the killers. But why is he being followed by a British hitman whose face is familiar from Lark Rise to Candleford? Is there any reason for him to make no attempt to disguise his identity while stalking around the California town of Bakersfield? Who is the unseen Mr Big who masterminded the massacre? The answers to these questions prove to be not particularly interesting, and the religiose conclusion appears to be a bid for support from the Bible Belt.
