Atlantis cancelled by the BBC

26 January 2015 1:13 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Get your sinking puns at the ready, Atlantis will not be returning after the end of series two…

We’re sad to report that BBC One’s fantasy drama Atlantis has gone the way of Wizards Vs. Aliens and In The Flesh and joined the pile of much-loved high-concept BBC content to be binned in 2015.

While Wizards Vs. Aliens may return eventually though, it seems that Atlantis is well and truly cancelled. A BBC spokesperson told Digital Spy that “the final seven episodes of Atlantis will transmit on BBC One in spring.”

“We would like to thank Urban Myth Films and all the cast and crew but the series will not be re-commissioned,” they added. The show was devised by Johnny Capps and Julian Murphy (who used to helm Merlin), alongside Misfits’ creator Howard Overman. These chaps must be feeling particularly unlucky at the moment, but we look forward to »

Will Richard Wilson be starring in a BBC sitcom?

25 January 2015 5:00 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Richard Wilson has told Digital Spy that the BBC have talked to him about starring in a sitcom.

The actor, who is most famous for roles in Merlin and One Foot in the Grave, said that he wasn't sure whether the project would go ahead.

Wilson told DS: "I wouldn't mind considering another sitcom. The BBC have talked about me coming back to do something, but I don't know whether that will happen.

"The trouble with One Foot in the Grave was it was so well-written by David Renwick, it's very hard to find something as good as that."

Wilson is currently fronting ITV's Richard Wilson's On the Road, in which he tours the UK in his vintage car using Shell Guides that were first published in the 1930s.

Asked if he planned to present more factual television, Wilson replied: "No, no. I can still consider myself an active actor, »

Richard Wilson says he doesn't miss Merlin: 'It was too hectic'

24 January 2015 12:47 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Richard Wilson has said that he doesn't miss starring in Merlin.

The 78-year-old actor played Gaius in the BBC One fantasy drama alongside Colin Morgan and Bradley James.

Asked by Digital Spy whether he missed the show, Wilson replied: "No, no. It was too hectic.

"Merlin was made in France and Wales, and I was an associate director [of New Sheffield Theatres] in Sheffield and I live in London, so I was running between Sheffield, London, France and Cardiff which was a wee bit hectic.

"We did five years of it and it was good fun at the time. But no, I wasn't sad to leave Merlin – well I didn't leave Merlin, it finished!"

Richard Wilson is directing Sarah Kane's Blasted at Sheffield Theatres, which opens on February 10. »

Atlantis will not return for third series on BBC One

23 January 2015 2:00 PM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Atlantis will not return for a third series.

The fantasy drama will not be re-commissioned once the current run has finished airing, Digital Spy has learned.

Speaking exclusively to DS, a BBC spokesperson said: "The final seven episodes of Atlantis will transmit on BBC One in spring. We would like to thank Urban Myth Films and all the cast and crew but the series will not be re-commissioned.

"We are very proud of both series but to keep increasing the range of BBC One drama we have to make difficult decisions to bring new shows through."

The second series of Atlantis is comprised of 13 episodes - the first six aired late last year before the show went on hiatus, while an exact date for the final seven is yet to be confirmed.

The series, inspired by ancient Greek myths, starred Jack Donnelly as Jason, Mark Addy as Hercules and Robert Emms as Pythagoras. »

As If: 10 year retrospective of the cult Channel 4 teen drama - part 1

22 January 2015 1:00 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Back in 2001, the landscape of British teen dramas didn't continue much further than Byker Grove, Grange Hill and a relatively new soap called Hollyoaks.

Since then, we've had plenty of shows that focus on the lives of a group of youths, from Skins to Misfits to Made in Chelsea. But there was one show that arguably kickstarted the modern teen drama without getting the kudos it deserves, and that show was As If.

Last year marked the 10th anniversary since the series came to an end, and so Digital Spy decided to look back on the show and find out what happened to some of its main cast members.

As If launched on January 22, 2001 on Channel 4 in the midweek early evening slot, and was later repeated on Sunday afternoons on T4. From series two onwards, it stayed as a T4 staple, but maintained its young adult themes, running for »

The Musketeers series 2 episode 3 review: The Good Traitor

15 January 2015 5:30 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The Musketeers' winning streak continues this week, but is the supporting cast starting to eclipse the Musketeers themselves?

This review contains spoilers.

2.3 The Good Traitor

Last week’s An Ordinary Man brought excitement and danger through some strong writing and performances, and could certainly be considered up there with the best the series has had to offer. It was a good example of how a Musketeers’ story can be told that reflects the excitement and adventure of the source material but in a manner that modern audiences would enjoy – exactly what we’ve been wanting from this adaptation. The question was of course – is this a one-off? Have they peaked early ? Well, in The Good Traitor the cast and writers have done an excellent job of picking up where An Ordinary Man left off – certainly being the equal in writing, performance and direction.

On the surface, there is a »

Thunderbirds Are Go! First pic of CGI Tracy Brothers

15 January 2015 3:28 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Here's what the Thunderbirds' Tracy Brothers look like in their new CGI incarnation for ITV series Thunderbirds Are Go!

We've seen Tracy Island, we've heard a teaser distress call, but here is our first proper look at the CGI-rendered Tracy Brothers from forthcoming ITV series, Thunderbirds Are Go!

Scott, John, Virgil, Gordon and Alan have had a One Direction-style makeover for the new twenty-six part series, which is due to arrive on ITV this spring. 

Thunderbirds Are Go! features the voice talents of Rosamund Pike as Lady Penelope, original voice cast member David Graham as Parker, Kayan Novak as Brains, and Thomas Brodie-Sangster, David Menkin and Rasmus Hardiker as the Tracy Brothers. Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy's Sandra Dickinson will be providing the voice of Grandma Tracy, alongside Merlin's Angel Coulby and Doctor Who's Adjoa Andoh as newcomer Kayo and Colonel Casey respectively.

So, er, what do we think? »
