Holly birthday, Happyoaks! Sorry, let's try that again. Happy birthday, Hollyoaks! That's better.
It's often written off as the runt of the soap litter, but we're rather affectionate towards Hollyoaks. Surprisingly, it's not only survived but is set to celebrate its 20th anniversary this autumn. It now boasts 50 regulars and a faster pace than any other soap, but can you believe that Hollyoaks once focused on the adventures of only seven main characters?
Launching on Channel 4 in October 1995 with just one episode per week, Hollyoaks gradually earned a place in viewers' hearts as it followed the tangled lives and torrid loves of Kurt, Jambo, Louise, Maddie, Natasha, Dawn and Tony. So where are Chester's magnificent seven now?

To clarify, this article and the ones similar to it are not reviews of this fall/midseason’s pilots (because pilots can change a lot between now and when they broadcast). These are just my first impressions of the not-for-air network pilots that I have been able to screen. I last wrote about The CW’s Containment. Next up: Fox’s Lucifer, which premieres at midseason. The Premise: Based on the DC/Vertigo comic. Bored and unhappy as the Lord of Hell, Lucifer Morningstar has abandoned his throne and retired to L.A., where he owns Lux, an upscale nightclub, and begins assisting a skeptical detective on an investigation after a friend of his is murdered. The Cast: Tom Ellis (Merlin) as Lucifer Morningstar, Lauren German (Chicago Fire) as Detective Chloe Dancer, Db Woodside (24) as Amenadiel, Rachael Harris (Suits, New Girl) as Kim Martin, Scarlett Estevez (The Massively Mixed-Up Middle School Mystery) as Trixie, »

Morgan will play Nathan Appleby - a young man faced with dangerous supernatural phenomena - with Spencer cast as his wife Charlotte.
"The Living and the Dead is one of those scripts that you read and are instantly compelled and engaged by," Morgan said. "It's intelligent, chilling and engrossing, it's going to be very special and I can't wait to start working on it with the wonderful creative team."
Spencer added: "It's always been a dream »
Following the runaway success of Poldark the BBC has commissioned another period drama set in the West Country, this time a supernatural mystery called The Living and the Dead.
The BBC1 drama, set in Somerset in 1894, centres on a young couple who inherit a farm in an “isolated corner of England” and become subject to “unsettling and dangerous supernatural phenomena”.

Doctor Who is the persistent subject of rumours - from the credible to the outright absurd - and it can be difficult to separate what's fact from what's fiction.
Lucky for you, dear reader, that Digital Spy is on hand to cut a swathe through the nonsense - these are the facts, 100% confirmed, about series 9 of the world's greatest science-fiction series.
Filming began on the 9th series of Doctor Who - its 35th run overall - on January 5, 2015 for a planned transmission in the autumn. Steven Moffat will serve as lead writer and executive producer for the fifth time.
Coleman was widely expected to be leaving the series in the 2014 Christmas special - and indeed had planned to exit - »
Read More: Watch: 'Northmen: A Viking Saga' Gets an Epic and Bloody Trailer Those missing "Game of Thrones" may be in luck, as Claudio Fäh's upcoming "Northmen: A Viking Saga" looks to be chock full of medieval sword fights and intense violence.

Plans for a two-part movie based on the classic horror novel are moving ahead with Mama director Andres Muschietti potentially taking over.
New Line's partnership with Andres will likely involve his sister Barbara Muschietti coming aboard in a producer role, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
It had been scheduled to go into production this summer prior to Fukunaga's departure in May, after working on the project for three years.
Changes to the movie's direction mean that The Maze Runner's Will Poulter is no longer necessarily still attached to play the demonic clown Pennywise, but he could come back aboard at some later stage.
There is no word yet on when production will begin with Andres Muschietti at the helm.

At Comic-Con, I recently joined the press room for A&E's The Omen sequel series, Damien, where, along with a handful of journalists, I caught up with writer/executive producer Glen Mazzara and cast members Bradley James, Barbara Hershey, and Scott Wilson, who discussed the upcoming adult Antichrist series.
Glen Mazzara on the tone of the show:
"It is realistic, we're using the original 1976 film as the source not only of the story but of the style of filmmaking. That film was very grounded, it felt like it was taking place in the world and so we're trying to follow that, you know? I think that's what makes the horror play. If you feel that it's real. Once something becomes very involved, very dependent on special effects, I tend to feel not as frightened, to tell you the truth. So we're trying to stay as realistic feeling as possible.

Disney and Pixar’s “Brave” is getting the “Once Upon a Time” treatment in season five, with Scottish princess Merida joining the ABC fantasy drama.
At the show’s Saturday morning Comic-Con panel, executive producers Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz unveiled a teaser featuring Merida’s iconic archery skills, showing a hooded character hitting the bullseye of a target before splitting that arrow with a second and pulling back her hood to reveal curly red hair. Merida will be played by Scottish actress Amy Mason.
The cast and executive producers were on hand at Comic-Con to tease season five, with Ginnifer Goodwin, Jennifer Morrison, Robert Carlyle, Lana Parrilla, Josh Dallas, Emilie de Ravin, Colin O’Donoghue, Sean Maguire and Rebecca Mader in attendance.

A&E have debuted the first trailer for "Damien," the new TV series follow-up to the original 1976 "The Omen" with former "Merlin" star Bradley James taking on the role of the Antichrist-to-be Damien Thorne. In the new take, he's now a thirty-year-old war photographer who has forgotten everything about his past.
Glen Mazzara ("The Walking Dead," "The Shield") produces the series which he calls "grounded" and realistic. There'll be some special effects dealing with Damien's powers, but for the most part they're subtle.
Speaking at Comic Con earlier today, James says this version's Damien is aware that "there are strange things going on, and his life is not what other people’s lives seem to be." The first season will essentially deal with his struggle between his regular-guy humanity and the destiny that Lucifer planned for him after he learns the truth.
One of the factors will be his »

Ron Moody as Fagin in 'Oliver!' based on Charles Dickens' 'Oliver Twist.' Ron Moody as Fagin in Dickens musical 'Oliver!': Box office and critical hit (See previous post: "Ron Moody: 'Oliver!' Actor, Academy Award Nominee Dead at 91.") Although British made, Oliver! turned out to be an elephantine release along the lines of – exclamation point or no – Gypsy, Star!, Hello Dolly!, and other Hollywood mega-musicals from the mid'-50s to the early '70s. But however bloated and conventional the final result, and a cast whose best-known name was that of director Carol Reed's nephew, Oliver Reed, Oliver! found countless fans. The mostly British production became a huge financial and critical success in the U.S. at a time when star-studded mega-musicals had become perilous – at times downright disastrous – ventures. Upon the American release of Oliver! in Dec. 1968, frequently acerbic The »

This review contains spoilers.
Forget Barb meters drily totting up television ratings, the true measure of a TV episode should be judged by the volume of a viewer’s involuntary wail when the end credits appear. By that system, Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell registers off the scale. When the screen turned black at the close of tonight’s instalment, my neighbour knocked on the party wall to check I hadn’t done myself an injury.
As an adult, watching this series is the closest I’ve come to the childhood experience of being read a new and spell-binding bedtime book. In the joy of the anticipation, in the telling, and in the frustration of realising a chapter’s end has snuck up on you mid-tale; that’s just how it feels. »
