A selection of British TV news from the past week:
Derry Girls season 2: Trailer.
The BBC’s version of the “His Dark Materials” series: First look. (I forgot James McAvoy was in this. I MUST SEE IT. And, speaking of James, did you see that he got his Oscars shirt signed by celebrities, to auction off for charity?)
The co-creators of The Inbetweeners are back with a new show.
Scotland’s “answer to The Wire“: The Grey Area.
New BBC comedy series: based on a stage production of The Play That Goes Wrong (about a troupe putting on disastrous plays).
Jane Austen’s Sanditon: Casting news.
Olivia Colman: Oscar winner! (Can’t get enough Olivia Colman? Here’s a list of everything she’s in that’s currently on Netflix.) Also, can we talk about evening dresses and how they make it impossible for women to walk like regular unencumbered human beings? I like her dress, like the color, it’s something different, but good Lord, it didn’t look easy to move around in.
Joanne Froggatt: Interview.
Brit movies: Rocketman trailer.
Have a great week watching British TV!
