A selection of British TV news from the past week:
The BBC has unveiled its slate of Christmas programming. All I want for Christmas is to live in the UK and watch the BBC.
Drama Mrs. Wilson: Trailer.
The Crown season 3: First look at Josh O’Connor (from The Durrells) as Prince Charles.
The producer of The Great British Bake-Off says the show “would have died” without the move to Channel 4.
A Benidorm movie is planned! (Never seen Benidorm, about British tourists behaving badly in an all-inclusive resort? You can see the first episode here; it can be quite funny, and who doesn’t love Steve Pemberton?)
Ever seen Pocoyo, the kids’ program narrated by Stephen Fry? Even if you don’t have kids you should watch it for the sheer genius of watching Stephen Fry narrate stories about a duck, an elephant, a baby, and all the rest of their friends. It’s coming to Netflix.
Jamie Dornan will star in a new Irish period drama.
Downton Abbey star Lily James will star in a new remake of the thriller Rebecca.
Have a great week, watching (British) TV!
