The Den of Geek Christmas 2017 UK TV and radio guide

Louisa Mellor Dec 13, 2017

We’ve taken a highlighter to this year’s Christmas and New Year TV schedules and circled what we’ll be watching this festive season…

Amid the cosy repeats and cranberry-stuffed cookery shows on TV over the next few weeks are a few gems. There’s no Sherlock or Charlie Brooker’s TV Wipe this year, but there are plenty of treats, not least the return of The League Of Gentlemen for a three-part anniversary series and Peter Capaldi’s last hurrah in the Tardis in the Doctor Who Christmas episode.

Snapchat Show Earns First Emmy Nomination, For NBC’s ‘The Voice’

Snapchat Show Earns First Emmy Nomination, For NBC’s ‘The Voice’

The Crystal Maze 2017 episode 4 review

Louisa Mellor Jul 13, 2017

The Crystal Maze reaches the end of its celebrity run with a couple of Loose Women, an EastEnder, a Northerner and a class clown…

In the genus of UK gameshow hosts, Richard Ayoade defies sub-categorisation. He’s not a Blood-Drinking Reptilian Overlord (Chris Tarrant, Noel Edmonds, Eamonn Holmes), nor is he Someone Who Would Be Driving A Foxtons Mini If They Weren’t On TV (Patrick Mulhern, Davina McCall, Paddy McGuinness, Vernon Kay). He’s not a Barrymore, a Bowen or a Les Dennis, and neither is he a Grandad Who 100% Killed Someone In The War (William G. Stewart, Des Lynam, Bruce Forsyth).

Louisa Mellor Jun 30, 2017

The revived Crystal Maze is a winner, as its second Stand Up To Cancer celebrity special proves…

“I love The Crystal Maze!” said Joey Essex, once he’d worked out what one was and that he was in it. “Haven’t we revitalised the format?!” agreed Richard Ayoade enthusiastically, sadly putting Joey right back in the lap of confusion.

Ayoade and Essex, two very different kinds of men. Watching them try to converse can’t be unlike watching an owl try to mate with a suitcase. Having seen it now though, I just want more. Quick, someone commission a show in which the pair of them team up to fight crime or catch cowboy roofers or conduct a public vote for the nation’s best Center Parcs. Whatever it is, I know I wouldn’t be able to look away.

The Crystal Maze is back with a new Maze Master, a new Futuristic Zone, and all the fun of the original...

You can question TV’s current Rosebud-like obsession with stuff that used to make us happy as kids all you like; the truth is that watching Richard Ayoade being wry to people dressed like ghostbusters is just good medicine. Watching Richard Ayoade in salmon pink corduroy being wry to minor celebrities dressed like ghostbusters is excellent medicine.

Jessica St. Clair Found Humor in Cancer's Difficult Moments — Which Inspired the New Season of Playing House

Jessica St. Clair says she was an emotional wreck when she was diagnosed with breast cancer in September 2015 at age 38.

“I was sobbing like a baby bird,” the actress says in the current issue of People.

Learning she had stage 2B estrogen positive cancer was tough — especially because her husband, playwright Dan O’Brien, was out of town at the time — but St. Clair was able to lean on her friend and Playing House costar Lennon Parham.

“She held me as I was crying, Everyone at the doctor’s office thought we were a couple! When my husband showed up everyone was very confused,
