Brit Telly Headlines: 27 March 2018.


A selection of British TV news from the past week:

New drama from the BBC, starring Christopher Eccleston: Come Home trailer.

The Outlander team teases season 4.

“The BBC, Simon Cowell team up on The Greatest Dancer.”

Everyone cannot wait for Harry and Meghan’s nuptials, including ITV. (Even Fox is getting in on the act!)

The BBC is set to broadcast a Stewart Lee stand-up special. I do enjoy Stewart Lee.

Jodie Whittaker dishes on the new season of Doctor Who.

Did you know this? Tom Hardy is set to play Al Capone in an upcoming movie. I pride myself on knowing all Tom Hardy news, all the time, but this was news to me! I’m slipping.

There’s a new BBC drama in the works, done by the same people who brought you The Man in the High Castle. Also: The BBC is working on a new spy thiller titled The Capture.

Black Mirror series 5: Filming has begun.

British period drama Jamestown is coming to PBS: but you can only stream it.

Have you heard about the pay gap controversy on the show The Crown? (Spoiler alert: Matt Smith made more for his role as Prince Philip than Claire Foy did for her turn as QEII.) Here’s what Foy herself has to say about the issue.

The awesome Idris Elba on his new semi-autobiographical sitcom In the Long Run. I MUST see this one.

Acorn TV news: Acorn has commissioned its own original crime drama titled London Kills.

On Netflix this week: BBC crime drama Requiem.

Wow…Midsomer Murders has featured a lot of interesting guest stars.

Not TV related, but I’m pleased that Ringo Starr is now Sir Ringo Starr!


Have a great week watching (British) TV!
