David Tennant To Play Serial Killer Dennis Nilsen In ITV Drama ‘Des’
Good Omens star David Tennant is to play infamous Scottish serial killer Dennis Nilsen in an ITV drama from the makers of Sky and HBO’s Catherine The Great.

New Pictures’ three-part miniseries, Des, is based on the Brian Masters book Killing For Company, in which the author cooperated with Nilsen to get inside the mind of a man who murdered at least 15 men and boys between 1978 and 1983. Nilsen died in jail last year.

Joining Tennant is The Crown star Jason Watkins, who will play Masters, and Line Of Duty actor Daniel Mays, who features as Detective Chief Inspector Peter Jay. The story charts Nilsen’s arrest and trial, through the prism of the three men.

Des was developed by Luke Neal and Lewis Arnold, with Neal writing the first two episodes and Kelly Jones penning the third. Willow Grylls, Kim Varvell, Charlie Pattinson, Elaine Pyke, Neal, Lewis Arnold and Tennant are the executive producers.

Fxx's Every Simpsons Ever Marathon: Day 4 - HitFix Picks

Fxx's Every Simpsons Ever Marathon: Day 4 - HitFix Picks
[As you probably already know, starting on Thursday, August 21, Fxx is running the Every Simpsons Ever Marathon, running through all 552 episodes of "The Simpsons," plus "The Simpsons Movie." To aid in your viewing process, Team HitFix is selecting our favorite episodes from each day, plus an episode or two that you can skip and use as a bathroom or nap break.] Day 4 of Fxx's Every Simpsons Ever Marathon really is where the show hits its peak. It's possible that it can't equal the heights of Day 2 and Day 3, but there's a depth to the episodes between "Round Springfield" and "Grade School Confidential" that no other day can top. How good is this day? I even like the big Abe episode, "Raging Abe Simpson and His Grumbling Grandson in 'The Curse of the Flying Hellfish.'" How good is this day? We didn't even consider "Homer vs. the Eighteenth Amendment" and it includes the immortal line, "To alcohol! The cause of, and solution to, all of life's problems." And we considered, but didn't write up "Homer's Phobia," with John Waters in one of the show's best guest vocal turns. And nobody even mentioned "El Viaje Misterioso de Nuestro Jomer (The Mysterious Voyage of Homer)" even though Homer's Guatemalan insanity pepper hallucination is an aesthetic highlight.

Looking back at The Baker Street Boys

Feature Alex Westthorp 19 Feb 2014 - 07:00

Nostalgia ahoy! With Sherlock Holmes more popular than ever, Alex looks back at eighties children's drama, The Baker Street Boys...

The BBC's contemporary take on Arthur Conan Doyle's short stories has made Sherlock the most popular television drama series in many years. Benedict Cumberbatch has made Sherlock his own, his approach to the role as radical for the current era as the late, great Jeremy Brett's was a generation ago. Martin Freeman has banished our memories of his role as Tim Canterbury in Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant's The Office, with his wonderful re-assessment of Dr John Watson. The corporation is making the most of the Conan Doyle franchise. After from two rather lacklustre yuletide cases, firstly with Richard Roxburgh in 2002 then Rupert Everett in 2004; they finally have a hit on their hands. The benchmark hitherto has always been Granada Television

DVD Review - Shifty (2008)

Shifty, 2008.

Written and Directed by Eran Creevy.

Starring Riz Ahmed, Daniel Mays, Jason Flemyng, Nitin Ganatra, Jay Simpson, Dannielle Brent and Francesca Annis.

Synopsis:

A young British-Asian man firmly embroiled in the suburban North London drug trade falls foul of various heavy handed locals. An old school friend, plagued by his own unpleasant memories of the city, attempts to put him onto a different track...

A world away from the high octane and glamorous ups and downs regularly seen in Hollywood portrayals of the drug world, Shifty is a distinctly British approach to the subject. Following the trials and tribulations of small-time hood Shifty, (a fantastic film-lifting performance from Riz Ahmed; Four Lions, Ill Manors) the film goes someway to describing the mundanity of local weed 'n pills pushing.

Kicked out of the familial home for refusing to settle down to a traditional British Muslim way of life, the twenty-something

The Immortal Jim Halpert … There Can Be Only One!

When it comes appreciating the fine arts, I often find myself drawn to the philosophies espoused by the renowned art critic Homer Jay Simpson. Specifically, he once uttered this classic line while waiting for his wife to peruse the belongings at the “A Little Bit Of Lenny” craft stand: “Less artsy, more fartsy!” Fortunately for myself and society at large, there are others who hold museums in higher regard. Like Reddit user ReigningCatsNotDogs, for example. While on a recent trip to the Statens Museum for Kunst in Copenhagen, wherever that is, he stumbled upon a painting from the 1800s of a fellow he claims looks just like The Office‘s Jim Halpert. How much like Jim Halpert, you say? Well, you be the judge! If you can tell which one of the portraits above is “real” and which one is “fake,” then you should probably stop what you’re doing
