The BBC series Call the Midwife, which airs in the U.S. on PBS, has quietly become one of the best British imports on TV. On Monday, word came down the pipeline that Call the Midwife has been renewed for a fifth season.
There's a lot to talk about with this week's Doctor Who. If you've been waiting for the episode to convince you that the show isn't totally lost, your day has come!
Doctor Who is entering the home stretch of Season 8, which is obviously a perfect time to slow down and talk about trees.
If you thought last week's Doctor Who didn't have enough going on, then this week's caper should fix that. Come for the recap, stay for our longest list of episode notes this season.
Netflix's goal in 2014 (or one of them, at least) is bringing audiences exclusive TV series from around the world, instead of just dropping a bunch of time and money on an Americanized remake that never matches the potential of its source material. The latest series scooped up by the streaming giant is the highly acclaimed BBC dramatic thriller Happy Valley,
Scripts for Peter Capaldi’s brand new Doctor Who season have leaked online. The BBC officially announced the news on Monday, noting that five scripts from the upcoming Season 8 have officially reached the masses on the Internet.
Following word that Sherlock fans would have to wait until Christmas 2015 to see the series back on television with a new episode -- or special, as it were -- comes a more official update that the BBC mystery drama will be back for a special and then three new episodes.
Of course BBC America and BBC Worldwide would want to make the introduction of the new Doctor a big affair, which is why they're launching a global world tour to officially introduce Peter Capaldi as the new Doctor. Peter Capaldi, who's playing the Twelfth Doctor in the beloved sci-fi series Doctor Who, will be joined by Jenna Coleman...
Following news last Spring that HBO and BBC were teaming up to bring J.K. Rowling's The Casual Vacancy story to the small screen with a miniseries adaptation comes some exciting casting news for the project, which includes word that Albus Dumbledore himself -- Michael Gambon -- will be among the cast. Also among the stars of the miniseries are Rory Kinnear, Monica Dolan, Julia McKenzie and Keeley Forsyth.
HBO and the BBC have teamed up with Rowling to turn her 2012 novel into a three-hour miniseries to be aired at an undisclosed date. There’s a joke to be made about a vacancy on HBO’s schedule being casually taken by this miniseries, but it’s not up to Rowling’s standards.
It’s been a very busy few days for the folks over at BBC America. The network has made announcements regarding two of its biggest properties in the past 24 hours. Namely, that a new clone of Tatiana Maslany was set to arrive to Orphan Black, and the addition of a new baddie to wibble-wobble through time and space on Doctor Who alongside new Doctor Peter Capaldi.
Exciting news, Whovians! Turns out the TARDIS will be built for three in its upcoming eighth season, as actor Samuel Anderson (he of The History Boys and Gavin & Stacey fame) has been tapped to join the cast of Doctor Who. Is this a new companion for the Doctor? A potential love interest for Clara Oswald? So many questions!
Ugh. Ugh, ugh, ugh Steven Moffat, how you toy with the emotions of the fans that love you and Sherlock. Despite previous rumblings, the showrunner revealed it might just take another 2 years for the esteemed Mr. Holmes and his good buddy Watson to appear on screen together again. You're tearing us apart, Moffat!
When there’s a mystery afoot, who better to solve it than the real-life counterpart of Sherlock Holmes himself, Benedict Cumberbatch, eh? That’s exactly what happened when Sesame Street put the Sherlock star on the case of Murray (oh, sorry, Murray-arty)’s apples and oranges. And with a little help from Count Von Count, The Sign of Four has turned into the most adorable video of the day.
Tonight’s third season ender for Sherlock was everything you loved about the series amped up by a billion. A nonstop, twisty-turny, action-packed, and clever as hell little jaunt, "His Last Vow" took us out the insular world of Watson and Holmes and into the reality of the situation. It exposed — at last — not only our big baddie, but a new character we’re dying to see more of (Bill Wiggins), a side of Mary Morstan we’d previously not seen, and a heck of a lot of slapping. Being trapped in a bunch of mind palaces never felt so good.
