The usual Skins grimness. Matters of life and death in The Big C. Tragedy and trials in Law & Order: UK. If it weren't for a bit of light relief in the form of some misbehaving Geordies, this would be a pitch-black edition of Must-See TV.

Georgia Taylor open to six-month Corrie deal

Georgia Taylor says she would have to be in 'Coronation Street' for at least six months if she was to go back. The 33-year-old actress - who played Toyah Battersby in the ITV soap before leaving in 2003 - is intrigued about returning to Weatherfield to reprise her role but insists she wouldn't accept a one-month deal on the show because it would ''undo'' her six years of hard work on the cobbles. Georgia - who still speaks to her former on-screen sister Jane Danson (Leanne Tilsley) - said: ''I haven't even been asked. Jane always says, 'Do you

'Doctor Who' role will not be female, says Georgia Taylor

Georgia Taylor has doubted that a female will play the lead role in Doctor Who.

The former Coronation Street actress said that fans of the show will probably react negatively to a woman playing the Time Lord in the BBC sci-fi series, after Matt Smith steps down at Christmas.

She also cited Lucy Liu's role of Watson in the Us Sherlock Holmes drama Elementary as an example.

"It's never going to happen," she told The Sun.

"That's not me doing a disservice to womankind, it is just one of those things.

"It's a bit like when they did Elementary. It wasn't even Sherlock, it was his assistant, but the outrage that caused."

On whether she would like to appear in Doctor Who, she said: "I don't think they will ever do it and I think now I am getting too old to even be The Doctor's assistant.

"They are all in their early 20s,

Any news on if Sarah Chalke's new comedy show How to Live with Your Parents (For the Rest of Your Life) will be aired in the UK?

It's not entirely outside the realms of possibility for Chalke's new show - which sees the Scrubs star play a single mother forced to move back in with her parents - to be picked up by a UK broadcaster, but we'd say it's pretty darn unlikely.

Having aired just six episodes in the Us, the show has already been canned by ABC - it'll probably finish out its 13-episode run,
