A selection of British TV news from the past week:
Thanks, Anglotopia: Here’s their list for what’s coming to BritBox in July; coming to Acorn TV in July.
Endeavour season 6 episode 3: recap.
Mindy Kaling has remade Richard Curtis’s classic rom com Four Weddings and a Funeral as a miniseries, and it’s coming to Hulu.
A new reboot of All Creatures Great and Small is planned! I’d be more excited, as I love the books, but honestly, I don’t know how it will be possible to top the original. Robert Hardy AND Peter Davison together? That was some genius casting.
New BBC One drama: Dark Money.
BBC One drama Holby City: adds Jo Martin to the cast.
A follow-up to Penny Dreadful is planned: casting news.
New Welsh (dark) comedy series planned: In My Skin.
I’m no fan of drones, so I’d kind of like to see this new BBC Two documentary about the danger drones can pose to all of us.
Is Doctor Who series 12 going to “tackle environmental issues“? (And speaking of the Doctors, Jodie Whittaker and David Tennant will be singing to support a new BBC album for children’s charity Children in Need.)
A new BBC documentary about trans athletes is getting good reviews.
Lennie James (of the sublime Line of Duty, and many other programs): Profile.
One of my favorite things about the Brits is how much they like Kylie Minogue.
A new movie about Sherlock’s sister will star Henry Cavill and Millie Bobby Brown.
Australian drama Halifax: Retribution casting news: American Anthony LePaglia will join the cast.
Jamie Dornan to star in a new movie with Kristen Wiig.
Hobbs & Shaw: Not a British movie, but starring Brits Jason Statham and Idris Elba. (Although I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: it looks absolutely ridiculous.)
The Good Liar (starring Helen Mirren and Ian McKellen): Trailer.
New short video: On set with Bond 25.
