11 sentimental and nerdy details hidden in TV show sets

Did you spot the photo of Amy Poehler in Liz Lemon’s 30 Rock office? Or the Han Solo model in Firefly?

Surrounding your workspace with more clutter than a mid-noughties Myspace page is one way to assert individualism inside a bland corporate identity. It tells the world, ‘I’m not a number, I’m a free man! A free man overly fond of Pikachu!’ It can also be an act of mild rebellion, akin to leaving out the short and skinny bit of your school tie instead of the long, fat bit of your school tie that the man wants to see.

And then there’s sentimental desk décor, the talismans from loved ones from which you draw daily strength, reminding you why you shackled yourself to the capitalist cart horse in the first place. These are the photos, drawings and poorly made pottery items that prove you exist outside of work,

Channel 4 drops sitcom London Irish: "No plans for a second series"

Channel 4 has dropped sitcom London Irish.

The channel told Broadcast that it has no plans to move forward with the series, which ran for six episodes in autumn 2013.

A spokeswoman said: "There are currently no plans for a second series."

The series - which starred Ardal O'Hanlon - debuted to 1.2 million viewers, but only averaged 704,000 over the course of its six episodes.

Peter Campion, Sinead Keenan, Kerr Logan, Kat Reagan and Tracey Lynch also starred in the sitcom.

Earlier this month, Channel 4 ordered a new sitcom pilot from Mighty Boosh star Rich Fulcher. The proposed series is based in a family-run porn shop.

Survivors – Series One Review

Villordsutch reviews Big Finish Audio Productions’ Survivors – Series One…

Written By Matt Fitton, Jonathan Morris, Andrew Smith, John Dorney.

Directed by Ken Bentley.

Sound Design by Neil Gardner.

Music by Nicholas Briggs.

Starring Lucy Fleming (Jenny Richards), Ian McCulloch (Greg Preston), John Banks (Daniel Connor), Louise Jameson (Jackie Burchall), Sinead Keenan (Susie Edwards), Caroline Langrishe (Helen Wiseman), Adrian Lukis (James Gillison), Chase Masterson (Maddie Price), Terry Molloy (John Redgrave), Camilla Power (Fiona Bell), Phil Mulryne (Phil Bailey), San Shella (Sayed) and Carolyn Seymour (Abby Grant).

I’m rather a big fan of Survivors, another classic Terry Nation original, though I hadn’t hit the age of four by the time it had finished its original run; I’d caught up with it some twenty or so years later and found it to be quite fantastic – granted it wavered in the final series, but it was still a fantastic show as a whole.

London Irish, the sick-com that's too try-hard to genuinely shock

Being Human writer Lisa McGee's latest, A Clockwork Orange in the style of Two Pints Of Lager And A Packet Of Crisps, feels spectacularly misjudged

At first glance, London Irish (Tuesday, 10pm, C4), which follows four living, loving, self-medicating Northern Irish friends in London, seems like just another staggeringly charmless comedy drama. It soon becomes clear, however, that this is more of a mindless, grinning sick-com: A Clockwork Orange in the style of Two Pints Of Lager And A Packet Of Crisps. Instead of violent fantasies and hallucinogen-spiked milk, the characters are fuelled by alcohol and stupid, morbid apathy.

A clip from the show released by Channel 4 earlier this year was received with slightly more abject horror than the standard sitcom teaser, mainly in response to a scene in which one of the characters wakes up in bed next to a small child. "We didn't, did we?" she asks him,

Being Human: UK TV Show Cancelled, No Series Six

It's the end of the road for the original Being Human TV show. BBC Three has announced that the fifth (current) season of the show will be the end.

Being Human began in 2008 and initially revolved around a ghost (Lenora Crichlow), a werewolf (Russell Tovey) and a vampire (Aidan Turner) who live together and try to live as normal a life as possible. Later castmembers have included Sinead Keenan, Michael Socha, and Damien Molony.

Regarding the cancellation, executive producer Rob Pursey wrote:

"Working on Being Human has been a truly great experience. From the first one-hour pilot, all the way through to this climactic series, we've been given real creative freedom and encouragement.

It's a credit to BBC Three that such an unusual idea has been allowed to flourish and evolve in its own unique way. I'd

BBC To End ‘Being Human’

Joe Utichi contributes to Deadline’s UK coverage. The current series of BBC Three hit Being Human, about a trio of supernatural roommates, will be its last. The characters will face the Devil himself in the program’s “apocalyptic end”, the BBC said. The show, which started airing its fifth series February 3, was created by Toby Whithouse and began life as a stand-alone pilot starring Andrea Riseborough, Russell Tovey and Guy Flanagan. Only Tovey carried over to the series, which has featured revolving main players like Lenora Crichlow, Aidan Turner and Sinead Keenan. Season 5′s cast of Michael Socha, Damien Molony, Kate Bracken and Steven Robertson will see the show out. A U.S. adaptation is currently airing an all-new third season on Syfy; the original has been a hit on BBC America since debuting in 2009.

Being Human: Season Five Renewal for BBC TV Series

BBC's Being Human has gone through some big casting changes with two of the three of the stars departing. Star John Mitchell left after season three and star Russell Tovey became a recurring guest until he was written out in season four. In addition, Sinead Keenan quit her role as werewolf Nina.

In year four, Lenora Crichlow's ghostly Annie has been joined by vampire Hal Yorke (Damien Molony) and previously-recurring werewolf Tom McNair (Michael Socha). Of the cast changes, Being Human creator and executive producer Toby Whithouse tells EW, "It's always very sad when we lose characters... But it's never terminal. To use our own mythology: As one door closes, another door opens."

February's season four premiere drew 1.2 million viewers -- four times the number that watched the debut of True Blood that same night. Still, that was the weakest season premiere for

TV Review: Fourth Season of BBC America’s Great ‘Being Human’ Hits the Reset Button

Chicago – Rarely has a show blown itself up more than the great BBC America supernatural program “Being Human” does in its first two episodes of its fourth season. Imagine if Paul Wesley and Ian Somerhalder just up and left “The Vampire Diaries.” And then imagine that the program survived such a loss but arguably got More interesting. Such is the stunning case of “Being Human“‘s fourth season, a show that appears to have hit reboot on its own program and survived the crash.

TV Rating: 4.5/5.0

The first two episodes of the fourth season of “Being Human” are incredibly transitional, saying goodbye to beloved characters and introducing new ones. I’m going to tread very lightly but it’s impossible to talk too much about the fourth season of “Being Human” without spoiling a bit of it. So, if you want to remain completely ignorant of the Major changes to come,

Being Human: will fresh blood bring new bite to Honolulu Heights?

Hal, Annie and Tom tell Dan Martin that they're ready to vamp it up as BBC3's supernatural comedy drama returns for a fourth series

It's all change at Barry Island's Honolulu Heights as Being Human returns for its fourth series on Sunday. Aidan Turner's Mitchell is slain, we know Russell Tovey won't be around for long, and Sinead Keenan has not even filmed an exit. So where next for our favourite supernatural flatshare? We spoke to the revamped cast to find out.

Hal (Damien Molony)

As vampire Hal, newcomer Damien Molony perhaps has the most difficult job. Not only is he the new boy, but Aidan Turner's smouldering Mitchell cast an ever bigger shadow over what was always supposed to be an ensemble cast. That wasn't lost on the Irishman. But, he says: "As soon I talked to Toby and read the scripts, I realised I'm not replacing Mitchell.
