A selection of British TV news from the past week:
The Bletchley Circle: San Francisco—teaser trailer.
New comedy series from Karl Pilkington: Sick of It.
New Ricky Gervais comedy After Life: Casting news.
Men Behaving Badly: Evidently the cast is “keen for a revival“!
BBC orders new kids’ programs School Bus and Giggle Quiz.
Just when I think I’ve seen a lot of British TV, along comes news about long-running series I’ve never heard of. This time it’s the news that ITV is cancelling Benidorm, after a TEN-season run. Anyone here ever seen Benidorm?
Do you recognize Benedict Cumberbatch in this first look at the drama Brexit?
Yup, there’s a spinoff from The Fast and the Furious series planned (titled Hobbs and Shaw), and Idris Elba is in talks to star in it.
Interview with Doug Henshall, star of Shetland (and have you ever seen him in Primeval? Primeval is so awesome).
“British Actors You Should Know”: Andrew Garfield.
Anglotopia’s Jonathan Thomas, interviewed at the BBC about the Prince Harry/Meghan Markle wedding.
Just for fun: “Ten Brilliant British Idioms and Their Meanings.”
Have a great week, watching (British) TV!
