Rafe Spall & Emilia Fox in Us Trailer for Cancer Drama 'Acres & Acres'

"Kiss the boys two times after I'm gone." Gravitas Ventures has released the first official trailer for an indie drama titled Acres and Acres, the latest from director Niall Johnson. This film originally opened in the UK back in late 2016, and is just now getting a Us release nearly three years later. It was first released under the title Mum's List, which is also the name of the book it's based on. The film is about Singe and Kate, a couple from North Somerset, whose lives were turned upside down when Kate was diagnosed with incurable breast cancer. Over her last few days, she created her list: writing her thoughts and memories down, to help the man she loved create the best life possible for their two sons, after she was gone. Starring Rafe Spall, Emilia Fox, Elaine Cassidy, William Stagg, and Matthew Stagg. Looks like a really heavy tearjerker.

Friday’s best TV: Billy Connolly: Made in Scotland; Delicious

The Big Yin goes home to tell the story of his journey from welder to feted comedian. Plus: Dawn French and Emilia Fox return for the third series of the West Country gastro-drama

Did the Big Yin’s conversational style change the face of British comedy for ever, as this two-part special argues? Either way, the Glaswegian remains one of the funniest men alive and it’s good to see him in such fine form as he goes home to tell the story of his journey from welder to internationally feted comedian. Sentimental but never schlocky, his reflections on childhood, the shipyards of the Clyde and the drinking culture of Glasgow form a mesmerising portrait of both man and city. Mike Bradley

BBC One Aims To Find Jack The Ripper In Emilia Fox-Fronted Science Documentary

The BBC is looking to solve the murders of Jack The Ripper in a new science documentary fronted by The Pianist and Silent Witness star Emilia Fox.

The British public broadcaster has ordered Jack The Ripper (w/t) from BBC Studios to air later this year. The one-hour special will look at how 130 years ago, between August and November 1888, Ripper murdered five women in the East End of London.

Despite a huge manhunt, the murders were never solved. The BBC hopes that using the latest police cold case techniques it will get closer than ever before. It will use original crime scene photographs as well as a virtual reality dissection table to answer the question of who was Jack The Ripper, what motivated him and how did he escape justice. Fox will be joined by Professor David Wilson, Emeritus Professor of Criminology, in the doc.

How I deciphered Silent Witness … using football and a spreadsheet

When the Guardian’s football tactics wizard wanted a way to unwind between assignments, the BBC’s pathology drama seemed like the perfect foil. Then he noticed some giant plot holes and former Southampton striker Neil Shipperley

Last year, I watched my first episode of Silent Witness – largely because I’d run out of Poirots, Marples, Veras, Rebuses, Morses and Endeavours. It had always been there, vaguely in the background for the previous 21 years, but it was never something that had much concerned me. But it was good, just preposterous enough – ideal for a football journalist looking for something to watch over lunch while working from home or to wind down in another featureless hotel room after a game.

I watched season 20 first, then 19, and then went back to the start when, rather than the ensemble based around Dr Nikki Alexander (Emilia Fox), the main character was Dr Sam Ryan

ITV Puts ‘Ant and Dec’s DNA Journey’ on Hold After Ant’s Drunk Driving Charge

  • Variety
A one-off documentary in which popular British hosting duo Ant and Dec use DNA to trace their family histories has been put on hold following charges of drunk driving against Ant McPartlin. McPartlin has stepped down from TV commitments since being involved in a March 18 car crash in suburban London that injured several people, including a child who had to be taken to the hospital.

The 90-minute genealogy show for ITV, “Ant and Dec’s DNA Journey,” was billed as a modern biography, using DNA to help the pair trace their respective roots. The show has not been canceled but is currently on hold.

The documentary was in production, and filming had not been completed nor an air date announced. The program is being produced by U.K. indie Voltage TV, which has pulled information about the show from its website.

McPartlin is reportedly in rehab.

Interview: Elizabeth Healey

Elizabeth Healey has an outstanding career in both TV and film and more recently a role in the blockbuster Doctor Strange (2016). It was a pleasure to speak to her about her career so far, including the romantic drama Across The River, which she also co-wrote.

What first attracted you to the role of Emma in Across the River?

Well the unique thing about Across The River is that it was completely improvised – I had done some improvisation before but nothing on this scale so that was definitely a draw. It is very rare you get this kind of opportunity and it was one I couldn’t let slip by. And I found I really loved working this way – it was a totally collaborative process from beginning to end and was a fabulously creative project to be involved in.

As a character I think Emma reminds me of many women today – she works very hard,

Delicious renewed for series 2

Rob Leane Apr 28, 2017

Sky is cooking up Delicious series 2! Dawn French and Emilia Fox will return...

Prepare for some more TV that's saucy in multiple ways! Sky 1 has officially ordered Delicious series 2, with creator Dan Sefton and stars Dawn French and Emilia Fox set to return for more food-adjacent romantic drama later this year.

The renewal news doesn't exactly come as a surprise. As CultBox tells us, series 1 of the show - which saw French's Gina and Fox's Sam battling for the affections of Iain Glen's sexy chef Leo - was Sky's most-viewed UK drama series last year. Of course the big cheeses behind the scenes want some seconds.

CultBox also has lots of quotes from people involved in the show, like this one from Dawn French...

"I am utterly delighted that there will be more of Delicious. It is that rare thing where everything from every department comes together well,

Our Ten Favourite Film Experiences Of 2016

2016 hasn’t been the greatest year for film, but for me personally it has been a cinematic journey that I will never forget. I have been lucky enough to have taken in around 270 of them this year, and have been fortunate enough to have ventured to the Berlin, Cannes, London and Toronto film festivals to sit on front of films that I perhaps would not have had the opportunity to otherwise, something that I am hugely grateful for.

With 2016 drawing to a close, and in one of my final posts of the year, I thought I would whack together one final list made up of ten films that really grabbed me during the year, some of which have made it into cinemas, but some which have not.

Not limited by any release spectrum, here are my top ten film experiences of 2016.

Mum’s List review – life lessons from the grave

Rafe Spall impresses as a widower in this tear-stained adaptation of St John Greene’s memoir

Only a Scrooge would snub Mum’s List, a heart-wringing, grief-stricken British weepy, adapted from the bestselling memoir by St John Greene. Rafe Spall does sterling work as a West Country widower, left to pick up the pieces. Emilia Fox is his late wife, Kate, who lives on as a guardian angel in the form of her texts and Post-it notes. Director Niall Johnson takes her scattered life lessons and makes them into a collage or possibly a soufflé. It’s warm to the touch, slightly soft in the middle.
