11 brilliant TV deleted scenes you might have missed, from Doctor Who to Game of Thrones

9 hours ago | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

How you doin? Last week a deleted scene from Friends went viral, and it was fascinating to watch a rarely-seen moment from a much-loved sitcom.

With hours of footage shot for TV shows, some will never see the light of day. But thanks to DVDs and YouTube, we can see bonus scenes that were cut from broadcast. Here's 11 great clips that may have passed you by...

1. Game of Thrones: Bronn gives Shae some deadly words of advice

In the original episode, viewers just see Tyrion ask Bronn to escort Shae away in order to save her life, only for her to turn on him in dramatic fashion. This scene adds an extra layer of context as to why Shae betrayed her former lover so badly, and how Bronn might have more business smarts than he lets on.

2. Doctor Who: Rory says goodbye to his dad

Downton Abbey could be revived, but you'll have to wait for 40 years

27 August 2015 7:13 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Downton Abbey may be coming to an end at Christmas, but that doesn't mean it won't ever come back.

Executive producer Gareth Neame has spoken of the chances of future generations being able to make a new version in some form in several decades time, in a similar fashion to Poldark or Poirot.

6 spoiler-free teasers for Downton Abbey's series 6 premiere

"It definitely is the end of the television show... It suddenly occurred to me that in 30 years' time somebody could [bring it back]," he said at the Edinburgh International Television Festival.

"There's nothing to stop a whole other generation of people when we've all retired. It'll be whoever owns NBC Universal at that point could say: 'Well, we own this property. We made it 40 years ago and let's set it on another planet or something'."

He added: "It's over, the television show will finish at the end of next season. I know »

At a meeting of the hospital's board, the pair cannot agree on how the hospital should be run going forward, after the Royal Yorkshire County Hospital makes an offer to take it over.

As the countdown to the final series continues, ITV have also released new promotional pictures, including the traditional ensemble shot.

Creator Julian Fellowes recently hinted that there may be more to come from Downton Abbey and its characters following its farewell series.

Jim also joked about the length of time it took his on-screen character to become intimate with the head housekeeper Mrs Hughes, »

Another Period and television's comedy casting carousel

26 August 2015 7:16 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Apart from laughs, the Comedy Central show shares several notable cast members with Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp – an increasingly common situation that is, actors admit, by design

Natasha Leggero and Riki Lindhome, the creators of Comedy Central’s Another Period, were talking last fall with the show’s production staff and writing team about possible replacements for an actor who had dropped out of the project. David Wain, who was working in another suite in the same building on his show Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp, popped his head into the meeting to say hello.

Cold Feet was a classic drama of the 90s – and that's where it should stay

26 August 2015 2:58 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

The thirtysomething comedy drama is rumoured to be returning for a new series. It should follow the example of Friends and stay on ice

Every few years, there are rumours that Cold Feet will return. They are usually denied pretty quickly. But this time around, the claims seem to have a little more substance, with widespread reports that the late-90s comedy-drama will fill the Sunday night void left by Downton Abbey.

Cold Feet, which ran from 1998 to 2003, is very much a product of its era, and that is where it should stay. It was born in a time where Manchester seemed to buzz with sharp-suited women, turn-of-the-millennium optimism and affordable houses in which attractive people would sit drinking red wine out of enormous glasses.

Rayanne of 'My So-Called Life' Is Now the Countess of Devon

26 August 2015 2:25 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Way to go, Rayanne! A.J. Langer, 41, is living out her own "Downton Abbey" fairy tale. The actress best known as Rayanne Graff on "My So-Called Life" is now the Countess of Devon and mistress of a 600-year-old, 4,000-acre British estate. We'd call that a so-called awesome life.

A.J. -- who also starred in "Baywatch," "The Wonder Years" and "Private Practice" -- met her husband, Charles Courtenay, in Las Vegas in 2002 and married him back in 2005. They are only in the news now because his father, the Earl of Devon, just passed away. That means Charles now has that title and A.J. (aka Allison Joy) is the Countess of Devon and their crib is Powderham Castle in Exeter, Devon, England. Not bad for a girl from Columbus, Ohio! Here are photos of the couple and their castle.

A.J. told Breezy Mama back in 2009 that she, Charles and their two children, »

7 reasons Benedict Cumberbatch shouldn't fear the mixed reviews of Hamlet

26 August 2015 12:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Updated: Read the critics' verdicts on Benedict Cumberbatch's radical reinvention of Hamlet, post-press night

As Shakespeare himself might have exclaimed: "Huzzah!" Thanks to the presence of a certain film and TV megastar, the Barbican's latest production of Hamlet has eclipsed everything else in Theatreland ever since it was first announced back in March 2014.

And don't worry: despite a mixed response from the critics on - and before - press night, Digital Spy can confirm it's both extraordinary and unmissable. But more importantly, with Benedict Cumberbatch in it, along with elements linked to Game of Thrones and even The X Factor, it might just be the most DS-ish cultural event this year, seemingly laser-targeted to excite you. And here's why:

1. Benedict Cumberbatch is ace in it

Production Design Emmy: Can 'Downton Abbey' or 'Mad Men' beat 'Boardwalk Empire'?

25 August 2015 4:05 PM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

This year at the Emmys, there will be three Best Production Design trophies handed out for narrative series: one for period programs, one for fantasy/contemporary shows and one for half-hour comedies. Of the period dramas in the hunt, two are Best Drama Series nominees -- "Downton Abbey" and "Mad Men."

Cold Feet: Where are the cast of ITV's hit series now?

25 August 2015 11:42 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Is ITV really going to bring back Cold Feet?

That's the rumour, with the broadcaster apparently looking to plug the Downton-shaped hole in its schedule with a revival of the popular comedy-drama.

If it's true, they'll have a job bringing the cast back together - some have gone on to be huge telly and film stars, while others have stepped out of the spotlight entirely...

James Nesbitt

Nesbitt's carefree lothario Adam Williams met his match in Helen Baxendale's Rachel - the couple overcame infidelity and infertility but were denied lasting happiness when Rachel was killed in a traffic accident.

Since Cold Feet wrapped, Nesbitt has become one of British television's most in-demand leading men.

He fronted BBC One's gritty cop series Murphy's Law from 2003-07, led Steven Moffat's supernatural thriller Jekyll - also in 2007 - and played the title character in ITV's short-lived medical drama Monroe (2011-12).

Downton Abbey's Joanne Froggatt is a serial killer in ITV's Dark Angel

25 August 2015 7:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Joanne Froggatt has begun filming her first project since wrapping up her time in Downton Abbey earlier this month.

The actress will play serial murderer Mary Ann Cotton in ITV's upcoming Victorian drama Dark Angel, which has started shooting in North Yorkshire and County Durham.

Froggatt's character sounds like the complete opposite to Downton's dependable maid Anna Bates, as she has a secret history of adultery, bigamy, fraud and murder.

With each killing, Cotton increases her social and financial standing in Victorian society, while no-one suspects that she could be behind the horrendous crimes. So don't mess with her.

Dark Angel will also star Alun Armstrong, Jonas Armstrong, Laura Morgan, Sam Hoare, Emma Fielding and Penny Layden.

ITV will soon announce the airdates for the two-part series.

Froggatt will return for the final series of Downton Abbey next month, which will conclude with its Christmas special on Christmas Day. »

Cold Feet stars are reportedly in talks for a comeback series on ITV

25 August 2015 1:17 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

It's been more than 10 years since Cold Feet left our screens, but ITV could be about to revive the show for a new series.

The cast of the hit comedy drama, including James Nesbitt, Hermione Norris and John Thomson, are all thought to be in talks with the channel about reprising their roles.

Fay Ripley and Robert Bathurst are also tipped to return should the revival be given the green light, according to The Mirror.

Rumours of a potential reunion series surfaced in July, but it is now looking ever more likely that ITV will bring the series back in its traditional Sunday night slot, filling the void that will be left when Downton Abbey concludes later this year.

However, if the show does return, fans shouldn't expect to see it on screens before autumn 2016.

Cold Feet was a ratings hit for ITV during its four-and-a-half years on air between »
