Doctor Who: Toby Whithouse responds to showrunner rumours

12 August 2015 1:13 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Could Toby Whithouse be the next Doctor Who showrunner? “No-one has asked me, no-one has approached me,” he has said…

There’s no indication that Steven Moffat will be leaving Doctor Who any time soon. He’s signed in at least until the end of series 10, and recently it’s been suggested that series 10 might not land until 2017. Naturally, though, these facts haven’t slowed down speculation of who the next showrunner should be.

On a lot of people’s wishlists would be Toby Whithouse, the Being Human, No Angels and The Game creator who has had a decent road-testing in Who writing over the last few years. He wrote Sarah Jane’s comeback adventure School Reunion for David Tennant’s Doctor, and The Vampires Of Venice, The God Complex and A Town Called Mercy for Matt Smith’s incarnation. This year, he has penned a two-parter for Peter Capaldi’s Time Lord, »

Watch drops Being Human USA and Saving Hope - but it's not all bad news

28 July 2015 3:15 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Being Human USA will not return to Watch, as the channel firms up its acquisition schedule for the coming months.

Watch has also declined to pick up further episodes of Saving Hope, a spokesperson confirmed to Digital Spy.

The supernatural medical drama starring Erica Durance aired its first two seasons on the channel between 2013 and 2014.

But it's not all bad news. Watch previously announced it would be airing ABC's Secrets and Lies from September and has now confirmed to DS that it also has the rights to the recently-announced second season.

Grimm will also return to the channel for its fifth season later this year, along with season two of vampiric thriller The Strain.

24 July 2015 7:50 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Frequent British TV director Toby Haynes ("Sherlock," "Doctor Who," "Being Human") is reportedly in talks to direct a new film adaptation of Lionel Bart's classic musical "Oliver!" for Working Title and Sony Pictures.

The project, which will be greenlit in a matter of weeks once rights deals are completed, aims to start shooting on location in and around London early next year for a late 2016 release. The tone is said to be grittier than the original.

Cameron Mackintosh will produce. Haynes, coming off the success of the acclaimed "Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell" mini-series adaptation which he both directed and executive produced, and his casting director Lucinda Syson have started to scout for the young British actors who'll play the title character.

Famed choreographer-director Matthew Bourne previously indicated he was linked to the project but that's not certain anymore.

Lionel Bart’s celebrated Dickens adaptation to go before cameras again, with Jonathan Strange director Toby Haynes making his feature film debut

A new film version of the popular family musical Oliver! is set to go into production, with Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell director Toby Haynes in charge of the cameras, it has been reported.

According to the Daily Mail’s showbiz reporter Baz Bamigboye, theatre producer Cameron Mackintosh has teamed up with powerhouse UK film outfit Working Title to get a long-mulled over film production off the ground. (The same team partnered for the blockbusting 2012 adaptation of stage musical Les Miserables.) The original suggestion was that Billy Elliot director Stephen Daldry may have taken the director’s chair, but that is apparently not the case. Aside from Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell, Haynes has also directed episodes of Sherlock, Doctor Who and Being Human. This would be his feature film debut. »

10 largely forgotten UK sci-fi sitcoms

23 July 2015 3:57 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Remember Kinvig, Clone, Not With A Bang? These are the UK sci-fi sitcoms you’re unlikely to see on comedy best-of lists…

With E4 sci-fi comedy commissions, Tripped and Aliens, and in-development Channel 4 projects, Space Ark and Graham Linehan/Adam Buxton collaboration The Cloud, in the works, a new crop of sci-fi sitcom could be making its way to UK TV.

Making funny sci-fi on a small-screen budget is tough enough without the additional pressure of having to attract viewers more traditionally down-to-earth in their sitcom tastes. Sci-fi sets and effects can be seen as prohibitively expensive by comedy commissioners (which is perhaps why the best UK sci-fi sitcoms of recent years has been on BBC Radio), and the genre’s niche status doesn’t scream mainstream hit. Over the years, one or two stand-outs have managed to straddle the sci-fi and comedy TV worlds, but plenty more have stumbled in the attempt. »

Daredevil, Empire and more: The 13 best TV shows of 2015 so far

26 June 2015 4:01 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Believe it or not, 2015 is half done already - and the past six months have delivered some top-notch television, much of it brand new drama, comedy and documentaries.

Picking the finest from a particularly fine crop was no easy task, but these were our rules: it had to launch in 2015, it must have aired one series / season in its entirety and it had to be a continuing series.

So no-one off pieces - e.g. Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell - and nothing that got the chop - sorry, Banished.

Here - in original broadcast order - are the DS Staff Picks from the year so far.

Marvel's Agent Carter - Morgan Jeffery, TV Editor

Hopes were high for Marvel's Agent Carter - not least because fans had been clamouring for a series featuring Hayley Atwell's heroine ever since her 2013 One-Shot short film.

Happily, this 8-part first season met and »

Salman Khan provides television sets to Kashmiris

25 June 2015 4:22 AM, PDT | BollywoodHungama | See recent BollywoodHungama news »

We all are aware about the generous side of Salman Khan. If his Being Human Foundation is a sign of his kind nature and his love for charity, the actor went a step further to ensure that all Kashmiris get their share of entertainment during his Bajrangi Bhaijaan shoot. While Salman had given employment to a few during the shoot schedule in Kashmir, he even helped the locals in other ways too. When the cast and crew were shooting at Pahalgam, Salman Khan interacted with the locals and he realized that some of them don't even own a television sets. Hence, the superstar decided to lend a helping hand and got his team to work on the matter. The actor ensured that everyone got a TV set of their own. Salman Khan's team is currently working according to his orders and most of the houses have already received their television connection. »

TV Review: ‘Poldark’

18 June 2015 7:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Poldark” made a considerable splash with “Masterpiece” viewers in the mid-1970s, and those who remember — along with their more discriminating children — should find much to like in this sumptuous remake. Aidan Turner (of “Being Human” and “The Hobbit”) takes over the title role in this sweeping period drama, whose picturesque landscapes and glorious soundtrack will make many linger to book passage to Cornwall. Much in the vein of “Wuthering Heights,” the series mixes class distinctions and romance, offering the kind of classy soap that should help keep Anglophiles’ cockles happily warmed between now and more “Downton Abbey.”

Based on the books by Winston Graham, the eight-part series (half of which was previewed) introduces Turner’s Captain Ross Poldark in the wilds of Virginia in 1781, sporting a red coat and battling the Americans. Flash forward two years, and he’s back in his native Cornwall, sporting a wicked scar that »
