Arthur & George episode 1 review

17 hours ago | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Martin Clunes plays Sir Arthur Conan Doyle in ITV’s entertaining new 3-part detective mystery based on Julian Barnes’ Arthur & George…

This review contains spoilers.

It’s a great story: internationally celebrated crime writer turns detective to exonerate wrongfully convicted man. That’s the juicy real-life premise of ITV’s new three-part drama, Arthur & George, adapted from Julian Barnes’ 2005 novel of the same name. Imagine if Enid Blyton had run a side line catching smuggling gangs on Cornish islands, or Agatha Christie had spent her weekends accusing real-life aristos of poisoning their wife’s lemon posset. TV would salivate at the prospect and understandably so. Life rarely imitates art so neatly.

Arthur & George’s premise isn’t only neat, but as a period crime detective show (the default settings of modern TV drama) about real-life racism, injustice and spookiness featuring the creator of fiction’s most famous sleuth, it ticks »

Prince William Meets with Chinese President Xi Jinping During Landmark Visit

18 hours ago | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Prince William wasted no time inviting President Xi Jinping to visit Britain, extending the offer on the first morning of his four-day visit to China. During a sit-down with the Chinese leader on Monday, the royal handed Xi an official invitation from his grandmother Queen Elizabeth. Prince William's meeting with the president at the Great Hall of the People in Beijing marks the first high-profile visit to the Chinese mainland by a senior British royal in almost three decades - and the beginning of the Year of Cultural Exchange between the U.K. and China.

Russell Tovey: ‘I was a scared, skinny little rat. Then I hit the gym…’

1 March 2015 12:00 AM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

It took the Essex actor a decade to fully regain his confidence after falling victim to a knife attack at 18. And a decade, too, to be comfortable portraying his own sexuality on stage and screen. Now the former History Boy is going from strength to strength

It’s freezing in London, three-layer weather, but Russell Tovey is wearing only a T-shirt. So what, I say, steering the 33-year-old inside a warm-looking cafe, you don’t feel the cold these days? Now that you’re…

Now that the actor is broader, musclier, or to use a phrase that was popular in his native Essex when he was growing up, a unit. If you’ve kept a mental picture of Russell Tovey from his early-career days as one of the National’s original History Boys, or from his later screen stuff, in Him & Her and Sherlock – well, take that mental picture and stretch it. »

The Weinstein Company and Anchor Bay Home Entertainment have announced a March 31st Blu-ray release for The Imitation Game, which won the Best Adapted Screenplay Oscar at last weekend’s ceremony.

Pre-order The Imitation Game Here

During the winter of 1952, British authorities entered the home of mathematician, cryptanalyst and war hero Alan Turing (Cumberbatch) to investigate a reported burglary. Instead, they arrested Turing on charges of “gross indecency,” an accusation that would lead to his devastating conviction for the criminal offense of homosexuality. Little did officials know, they were actually incriminating the pioneer of modern-day computing. Famously leading a motley group of scholars, linguists, »

Arsher Ali: I auditioned to play Moriarty on Sherlock

27 February 2015 9:00 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Arsher Ali has revealed that he auditioned to play Moriarty on Sherlock.

The actor - who appears in ITV's new drama Arthur & George - told Digital Spy and other press that he got the audition "spectacularly wrong".

"I went up for Moriarty and just got it spectacularly wrong," he said. "I got a callback and I was thinking, 'This is great. It's great that they're thinking Moriarty could be like me - amazing'.

"But I just completely wasn't expecting or didn't cotton on to what Andrew [Scott] eventually did. He's fantastic in it, but that's not how I saw it at all - so I missed that boat."

Ali plays George Edalji in Arthur & George - a real-life figure who was falsely accused of committing a violent crime and found an unexpected champion in Arthur Conan Doyle (Martin Clunes).

The role of good-natured Edalji particularly appealed to him after playing unscrupulous »

Benedict Cumberbatch Writes Touching Letter to Family of ‘Sherlock’ Fan

26 February 2015 3:18 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Break out the tissues — Benedict Cumberbatch wrote a letter to the grieving family of 14-year-old “Sherlock” fan Eve Shepherd after hearing about her death.

In the letter, Cumberbatch apologized for missing her funeral because he was “filming the show she loved.”

“It was absolutely unbelievable,” her father, Mark Shepherd, told People. “We know that Eve would have been jumping for joy.”

Eve Shepherd was born premature and underwent more than 200 operations after needing a tracheostomy when she was three months old, her family told the Warrington Guardian. According to her father, Cumberbatch had previously sent Eve a signed picture, “wishing her well and saying that he want to meet her.”

The letter to Shepherd’s family was read at her funeral service on Monday, and said the following:

“I send my deepest sympathies to Eve’s family. To lose someone so young who fought for her health all her life must be beyond endurance. »

New Spectre Images Offer Up First Look At Léa Seydoux And Dave Bautista In Character

26 February 2015 8:04 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

We always knew Empire’s Spectre special would bring us much more information about Sam Mendes’ highly-anticipated spy sequel, and we’re now beginning to see the fruits of this hot off the presses coverage.

Following up on yesterday’s on-set video of Bond’s Aston Martin, the outlet has served up a pair of images that showcase Léa Seydoux and Guardians of the Galaxy star Dave Bautista in character as Dr. Madeleine Swann and ominous henchman Mr. Hinx, respectively. Hot on the heels of his well-received turn in Marvel’s space oddity, the former WWE wrestler spoke about the nature of his “badass” character, who doesn’t appear to be a million miles away from Drax the Destroyer.

When I came over to meet Sam [Mendes], I only asked two questions. I asked him if Mr. Hinx was a badass. He said, ‘Yes, he’s a badass.’ I said, ‘Well, »

10 Most Creative Fan Tributes To Doctor Who

26 February 2015 2:30 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

BBC/How It Should Have Ended

Admittedly, the Doctor Who universe is vast and eternal, so much so that it probably won’t ever stop expanding. It’s achieved many things that other shows could not have done, purely because of how odd they would look if they did. The concept of regeneration, for example, changing the lead actor and maintaining the idea that it’s still the same man, is incredibly unique to Doctor Who. The only other franchise that has come a tad close to replicating it is James Bond, but, generally speaking, Doctor Who is convincingly original.

Through its 50 plus years of invading our TV screens, it has granted us with extraordinary visions of a fan’s imagination brought to life, as both Russell T Davies and Steven Moffat managed to fulfill their ultimate dream of bringing their lifelong ideas to the show, along with reviving it »

19 Times Benedict Cumberbatch Charmed the Pants Off of Everyone

25 February 2015 6:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Benedict Cumberbatch is nothing short of a phenomenon. The Internet is obsessed with him, women (and men) go gaga every time they see him, and BBC series "Sherlock" has birthed more fangirls and fanboys than any series in recent memory.

So why is the world so enamored by Benedict Cumberbatch? In a word: charm. The Brit sports charisma, a self-deprecating style, and a wit unmatched by anyone... except for maybe Tom Hiddleston. Or Robert Downey Jr. Or... I digress.

Here, then, are 19 times Cumberbatch cast his spell on everyone. »

Oscars 2015: The alternative winners, from best accessory to creepiest attendee

Best accessory: Benedict Cumberbatch's hipflask

Forget Cate Blanchett's statement Tiffany turquoise necklace; with the ceremony's running time of more than four hours, surely the finest accessory of the evening was the Best Actor nominee's hipflask which he flashed to the camera during Neal Patrick Harris's opening skit. You can't blame him for wanting to be drunk; after all, the evening included a performance from Adam Levine. Great shout, Sherlock. »

A screenwriter turns novelist, looking for less interference and fewer turkeys

21 February 2015 3:00 AM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

The Thick of It’s Will Smith has left the shelter of Armando Iannucci’s writing squad to try his hand at novels – and wants to draw his reader in as they would be by a box set

I could never claim that I was driven to switch from television screenwriting to writing novels by the limitations of the TV storytelling palette. After all, we live in the era of the trinity of Davids – Chase, Simon and Milch – and their titanic achievements (The Sopranos, The Wire, Deadwood). That said, although this level of excellence is attainable, few apart from the Us cable showrunners are allowed to reach for it. This wasn’t always the case, but I sadly doubt a contemporary Edge of Darkness would feature an extended dialogue-free scene where a father slowly explores the contents of his murdered daughter’s room, finds a Geiger counter and a gun, »
