A selection of British TV news from the past week:
THIS JUST IN: Bond 25 will be titled No Time to Die.
What can we expect from series 10 of The Great British Baking Show?
Oh my God, Russell Brand might be in a new Agatha Christie adaptation (of Death on the Nile)? My head is going to explode from happiness.
Martin Freeman on his new movie, Ode to Joy.
Andrew Scott will join the cast of HBO’s His Dark Materials. (Related: I am annoyed that all news articles now refer to Scott as “Fleabag‘s Hot Priest.” To me he will always be “Sherlock‘s unsettling and horrifying villain Moriarty.“)
Will we be seeing more of Ewan McGregor as Obi-Wan Kenobi?
New “comedy drama horror” program for Channel 4: Generation Z.
More ITV casting news, for their drama The Bay.
Evidently there was some kind of con on the Brit version of Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? And ITV is going to offer a drama based on that con. We’ll have to ask Jackie. (And Helen McCrory and Michael Sheen will star in it!)
