Sherlock, Broadchurch: 14 best shows returning in 2014

31 December 2013 1:00 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

2014 looks set to be a great year for new television drama and comedy in both the UK and Us, but it would be remiss of us not to tip our hats to the huge roster of returning favourites making their way back to our screens in the New Year.

So here's Digital Spy's highlights from the New Year's TV schedules - the 14 best shows coming back in 2014.

Sherlock (BBC One)

At last - at long last - Sherlock is back from the dead. Except a hair-raising reunion between Benedict Cumberbatch's presumed-dead detective and Martin Freeman's John Watson, a mind-blowing explanation as to exactly how Sherlock survived his fall, a malevolent new villain in the form of Lars Mikkelsen's Charles Augustus Magnussen and a ton of fan-baiting scenes just crying out for Tumblr gif-age.

Doctor Who (BBC One)

After 2013's 50th anniversary celebrations and Christmas special, we've got »

Get a Sneak Peek of In the Flesh Series 2 in this BBC America 2014 Promo

28 December 2013 8:00 AM, PST | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

The UK's "In the Flesh" zombie miniseries returns in 2014 with six more episodes, and this new promo for BBC America gives us our first taste of Series 2 along with the other great British shows and ground-breaking American originals that the network has coming up in the new year.

Dominic Mitchell’s "In the Flesh" was first developed by the BBC Drama Production team in Salford and writer Mitchell, who was discovered through "Northern Voices," a BBC Writersroom competition.

Series 2, which will air on BBC Three as well as the aforementioned BBC America, revisits the cauldron of Roarton, where the living and the undead have reached a fragile peace. After the shocking events of Series 1, Kieren (Luke Newberry) is hoping to get on with his second life, but the arrival of new and explosive characters throws those plans into disarray. Battle lines are drawn, and all will be judged.

Orla Brady interview: 'It turns out my mother is a huge Doctor Who fan'

21 December 2013 4:06 PM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

The actress on her starring role in the Christmas Day episode of Doctor Who, working on Mistresses and her forthcoming Eileen Gray film

"It was exhausting to be young," Irish actress Orla Brady, 52, tells me frankly. "There was this critical voice going, 'Hopeless.' And now I like life to be a little bit easier, so I consciously switch it off."

It's hard to believe Brady was once a chubby convent girl with self-esteem issues. In the flesh, she's radiant.

On Christmas Day, she stars in Doctor Who – The Time of the Doctor, playing Tasha Lem, a "galactic nun", an old ally of the Doctor's.

She applauds Steven Moffat for casting actresses over the age of 40. "He's not looking for that babelicious thing you see on TV, where you start to think stories aren't relevant to those of us our age."

Brady has been based in La for the past decade, »

The Top TV episodes of 2013

Odd List Den Of Geek 20 Dec 2013 - 07:00

As nominated by Den of Geek writers, here are our favourite individual TV episodes of 2013…

Contains mild spoilers for some episodes.

A fortnight ago, Den of Geek's writers were asked to channel their inner Rob Gordon and select their top five favourite TV episodes of 2013 so far (anything airing in the second half of December wouldn't be eligible). Now, after much arduous mathematics and tallying up, the results are in. 

So broad was the range of nominations, we've bumped up the top ten to a top fifteen this year, and included a bonus extra list at the end of every programme that appeared on the writers' lists of personal favourites.

Here we are then, the Den of Geek writers' favourite fifteen TV episodes of 2013...

Digital Spy's Best TV Shows of 2013: 15-11

14 December 2013 1:00 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

In 2013, Digital Spy has embraced all that UK and Us television has to offer - from the very best of comedy and drama, to the merely middling, to the absolute stinkers.

But now it's time to celebrate only the finest cuts - it's our top TV shows of the year, continuing now with 15-11.

15. My Mad Fat Diary

No-one quite knew what to expect when My Mad Fat Diary hit our screens at the beginning of the year, but before long we were all in love with Rae and co. From the brilliant, nostalgic '90s soundtrack to the quirky on-screen graphics and tricks; from the romances to the unashamed honesty about teenage life (good God, that period skirt), My Mad Fat Diary was utterly charming.

It had something for everyone, from goofy, adorable Archie to Tumblr-ready Finn, and who doesn't know "a Chloe"? Add to that a delicate, thoughtful »

The best TV of 2013, probably? Top 10 shows I didn't really watch this year

13 December 2013 12:30 PM, PST | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

If you scan the various year-end superlatives from TV critics that have already made it online, there's a running theme to them: There was a Lot of good television on in 2013. So much, in fact, that HitFix's Alan Sepinwall lamented (way back in April!) that it was practically impossible to pay attention to all of it.

He's right: The explosion of original programming on newer cable channels and non-traditional outlets -- and the responsive stepping up of the game on the part of some more established players -- has made this year a dizzyingly good and varied one for TV junkies. Zap2it will start its rundown of the best individual episodes of 2013 next week, and yours truly is taking part in the annual HitFix critics' poll, where my Top 10 shows will be listed alongside numerous other reviewers' picks.

That list, of course, is necessarily made up of shows I »

Ripper Street, Being Human: 5 axed UK shows we'll miss in 2014

6 December 2013 4:52 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

2013 was a year of terrific TV debuts - the enthralling Broadchurch, the stunning In The Flesh, the groundbreaking My Mad Fat Diary - but we've also had to bid farewell to a few old favourites…

Some programmes run their natural course, but here's five UK shows axed before their time - a quintet of classics we'll still be missing come 2014…

The Hour (2011-2012)

The final episode of BBC Two's nuanced newsroom drama may have been broadcast in late 2012, but it wasn't until February of this year that we were told a third series wasn't happening.

To rub salt into the wound, the second run ended on a doozy of a cliffhanger - with Ben Whishaw's Freddie barely clinging to life - and Romola Garai (Bel) has recently poured cold water on the rumours that this classy bit of telly might return for a one-off special.

Being Human (2008-2013)

Being Human 2.0, we hardly knew ye. »

Catch Up on The Returned Every Sunday in December

30 November 2013 3:30 AM, PST | ScifiMafia | See recent ScifiMafia news »

We told you back in September that A&E is developing The Returned, based on the French series Les Revenants (The Returned), maybe with some Carlton Cuse involvement. Similar to ABC’s Resurrection which premieres in March, NBC’s in-development Babylon Field, and BBC American’s In the Flesh, sthe original The Returned is about people returning from the dead.

If you’d like to see that original French series, the Sundance Channel has acquired it and has been airing it. No worries if you haven’t caught it yet, because they’re showing marathons every Sunday in December. Here are the details:

BuzzFeed: "Your Next Television Obsession Is French Supernatural Thriller The Returned"

5 November 2013 8:02 AM, PST | Televisionary | See recent Televisionary news »

You won’t just become addicted to Sundance Channel’s French-language drama about people returning from the dead; it will haunt your dreams. "Your Next Television Obsession Is French Supernatural Thriller The Returned" In the opening sequence of extraordinary French thriller The Returned, a yellow butterfly, pinned and placed in a display case, mounted on a wall, unexpectedly flutters back to life and smashes through its glass prison. It’s an enigmatically beautiful moment, and an apt metaphor for the overall premise of The Returned (which premieres Oct. 31 at 9 p.m. on the Sundance Channel), a collision between the worlds of the living and the dead that leaves both shattered. Created by Fabrice Gobert (who shares directing duties with Frédéric Mermoud) and based on a 2004 film of the same name, The Returned (in French, Les Revenants) is unlike anything else on television, on either side of the Atlantic, an atmosphere-laden »

French Zombies Descend on Sundance with “The Returned” and CBS Considers a “Himym” Spin-Off

31 October 2013 5:10 AM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »


According to The Hollywood Reporter, ABC Family is looking to turn The Hand that Rocks the Cradle into a series. While it makes sense the network whose biggest hit is Pretty Little Liars would be looking for antoher campy thriller, I can’t figure out how such a series lasts more than a season.

Peter Facinelli will star in a mini-series for Fox, Street Soldier, about a man who was an enforcer in mobster Whitey Bulger‘s gang.

Earlier in the day, Comedy Central announced that it ordered another season of Brickleberry, tempting me to crack that Comedy Central was now wearing the name ironically. Then it also renewed Key & Peele and Drunk History, and I trust its idea of comedy once more.

Deadline reports that CBS is considering ordering a thematic spin-off of How I Met Your Mother. Nicknamed “How I Met Your Father” the show would follow »

TV Review: ‘The Returned’ (Les Revenants), ‘Zombie Night’ – More Dead People Walking

25 October 2013 7:15 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The dead are walking again, and not just on AMC. Qualitatively speaking, two polar opposites with zombie themes premiere in the next week: “The Returned,” a brainy, bizarre yet strangely hypnotic French drama based on the film “Les Revenants,” being shown with subtitles on Sundance Channel; and “Zombie Night,” a brain-dead exploitation pic from Syfy, more interesting for its auspices (more on that shortly) and cheeky casting than anything onscreen. If there’s one to watch it’s the former, reflecting some of the interesting TV work being done around the globe, and the willingness of programming-hungry niche networks to provide it a showcase.

To call “The Returned” a zombie story is actually something of a misnomer, since it’s really a tale of grief and loss — and a rumination on life and death — with a creepy undercurrent running through it. The show also tries to do a bit too much, »

21 October 2013 3:00 PM, PDT | ScifiMafia | See recent ScifiMafia news »

And the new sci-fi series just keep on coming! How did we get so lucky? The latest news on the new series front is from BBC America, who has announced it has given the green light to 8 episodes of new original series Intruders. Based on Michael Marshall Smith‘s novel The Intruders, with a script by Glen Morgan (The X-Files, Millennium, The Others, The River), the new series is set to begin production in early spring 2014.

The series is about a “secret society devoted to chasing immortality by seeking refuge in the bodies of others.” Excellent.

Creator/Writer: Dominic Mitchell

Director: Jonny Campbell


In The Flesh, BBC America’s three-part series that Wired called “the thinking person’s Walking Dead,” is a unique take on a zombie apocalypse: what happens when humanity survives the uprising… and so do the zombies? When 18-year-old Kieren Walker (Luke NewberryAnna KareninaQuartet) committed suicide four years ago, his friends and family thought they’d never see him again – that is, until the dead began to rise. After a catastrophic war, imprisonment, and months of rehabilitation and medication, hoards of brain-craving undead have returned to a lucid state. The zombies, now known as Pds (Partially Deceased Syndrome) sufferers, are gradually being introduced back into a society that so recently fought them off for survival. For Kieren, returning home means confronting the community »

Emmett Scanlan talks 'In The Flesh', 'The Fall' and 'Hollyoaks'

18 October 2013 4:01 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

It's now been eight months since he filmed his final scenes as Hollyoaks favourite Brendan Brady, but actor Emmett Scanlan is as busy as ever with a new part on BBC Three zombie drama In The Flesh and a second series of BBC Two's The Fall on the way.

Digital Spy caught up with Emmett this week for an in-depth chat about his new projects, life after soapland and whether he'd ever be tempted to revisit the role of Brendan…

How did you become involved with In The Flesh and what attracted you to the show?

"Doing In The Flesh was a no-brainer for me, no pun intended. I was asked to come in and read for this new character that the show's writer Dominic Mitchell was developing - Simon, one of the disciples of the Undead Prophet. Dominic is a fantastic writer. His spin on the zombie genre is so unique and so layered, »

“White Collar” Returns with More Matt Bomer and “Mythbusters” Takes on Zombies

17 October 2013 3:34 AM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »


The past few years has seen rejected pilots get second chances. In 2007, CBS rejected Babylon Fields, an ahead-of-its-time zombie drama about a town where people rise from the dead and return to their old homes. Now, NBC is giving the series another try according to Deadline. I expect it will have to work to avoid seeming like a copycat of shows that came afterward like In the Flesh and Les Revenants.

It’s official. Ronan Farrow will host a show on MSNBC starting in 2014. Farrow says he wants to create a show that works as “a guide on how people can have agency in the story”. In the meantime, expect to see more of Farrow on MSNBC.

Last night, South Park missed an air date for ths first time in 240 episodes due to a power outage the previous night that made it impossible to get those last-minute touches done. »

BBC Three recently announced that Wunmi Mosaku (Citadel, Dancing On The Edge) will be joining the second-season cast of its zombie re-integration drama, In The Flesh. The first season of In The Flesh, which was released on DVD and video-streaming last week, went like this: In The Flesh is the story of teenager Kieren Walker and his reintegration back into both the local community and the heart of his family. After his death four years ago, his friends and family thought they’d never see Kieren again. But then, shortly after his funeral, thousands of the dead were re-animated in one freak night; and now, after months of re-habilitation and medication, the zombies are gradually »

News Louisa Mellor 16 Oct 2013 - 09:21

Rose Leslie, Ian McDiarmid and more have joined the cast of Dennis Kelly's Utopia for its second series...

Wonderful things are afoot. Not only is BBC Three's In the Flesh currently filming its second series, but Channel 4's Utopia has also set to work on the first block of episodes for series two.

Dennis Kelly's unsettling conspiracy drama is returning next year with six new fifty-minute episodes, including - in Kelly's own words - "a very odd" series opener, "which people are either going to really like or really say ‘what the fuck did you do that for?’ and I’ve got no idea what the reaction’s going to be".

Director Marc Munden, who was responsible for establishing Utopia's impressive style in series one, is back to head up the first three episodes of series two.
