Benedict Cumberbatch bigs up Sophie Hunter! “Like me, like my fiancee!”

benedict cumberbatch sophie hunter burlesque fairytales 2

There were more than a few hearts broken when Sherlock star Benedict Cumberbatch announced his engagement to Sophie Hunter earlier this month, so it is easy to see why some of his adoring female fans haven’t taken to her, or the news that well.

Cumberbatch used the slightly unusual approach of announcing his engagement earlier this month via a classified ad sent to The Times newspaper by his parents, Wanda Ventham and Timothy Carlton.

Remember Me review: Michael Palin & Jodie Comer shine in new BBC 1 drama (Spoilers)

Michael Palin

It’s fair to say that the genre of supernatural horror isn’t well represented on British TV. The majority of our dramas centre round doctors, policemen and occasionally lawyers. More supernatural offerings are usually confined to single dramas, such as last year’s The Thirteenth Tale and The Tractate Middoth. There are exceptions to the rule; such as ITV’s Marchlands and BBC One’s The Secret of Crickley Hall, but these series are few and far between. The latest British drama to try and tackle the supernatural genre is tonight’s BBC One three-parter Remember Me which includes all the classic horror tropes including unexplained running water, flickering lights and a creepy piano.

There is no denying that Downton Abbey has become a worldwide phenomenon, but it seems that Japanese devotees are going one step further and rather than just watching the show with subtitles, education authorities have reportedly introduced the show into the national school curriculum!

Game Of Thrones spoilers: Movie confirmed? Charles Dance says….

'Game Of Thrones' star Charles Dance will also feature

‘Game Of Thrones’ star Charles Dance will also feature

Oh My Total God! Game Of Thrones could be coming soon to a cinema near you, if Charles Dance is to be believed.

The hit HBO fantasy drama has always been of movie quality and we have always said that many of it’s largest scenes (the Battle of Blackwater for example) would be better appreciated on the big screen, instead of our tiny 42 incher in the corner of a sitting room.

As we have previously reported, next year’s Sherlock Christmas Special will feature Moriarty and we can now reveal that in fact the mystery surrounding the sinister character will be wholly solved during the episode.

Whose bum made Benedict Cumberbatch blush? (VIDEO)

benedict cumberbatch graham norton 4

We all know how very brutally British Benedict Cumberbatch is, but we never thought he was prudish!

The Imitation Game and Sherlock star has seen his fair share of brow-raising sites, most notably that of Lara Pulver stood naked in front of him as Irene Adler in Sherlock, but it would seem he is way shyer than we gave him credit for.

The Missing Episode 4 review: Tcheky Karyo shines as the mystery of Oliver’s disappearance deepens (Spoilers)

Tcheky Karyo

Last week I found it interesting reading the theories that some of you had left regarding the disappearance of Oliver Hughes on The Missing. I’m personally not sure who to trust but what I do know is that writers Jack and Harry Williams have extended the scope of the episode again. With the discovery of Oliver on the videotape last week it appears as if Tony has finally had the breakthrough he’s been hoping for. These modern day scenes took Julien back to the continuation of the Antoine case in 2006 and introduced us to yet another new character who began the episode.

Broadchurch series 2 premiere date & new trailers shed a LOT of light!

Broadchurch_finale__live_blog

As if I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here returning last night wasn’t enough excitement already for us on a Sunday evening, the lovely people over at ITV decided to fill the advert breaks with equal deliciousness too!

No, we don’t mean the Peter Andre Iceland adverts (although he was looking every bit as tasty as that Irish cream profiterole cake), we are referring to the teaser trailers for the new series of Broadchurch, which were broadcast between bushtucker trials and Gemma Collins crying over a broken finger nail.

The Missing renewed for season 2? James Nesbitt spills….

James Nesbitt

The nation has been gripped following The Missing, the new BBC drama which tells the story of a father’s plight to find his abducted child, years after the event, but could it come back for a second series, or more?

One of the biggest risks that dramas like The Missing faces is that they are so unique, and so specific that they run the risk of creating their own shelf life, based on how long interest can be hooked on the same story.

Sherlock’s Benedict Cumberbatch is a VERY loyal friend!

imitation game 2

The Imitation Game made its UK cinema debut yesterday, and if you were lucky enough to be one of the first to see it, you may have noticed that the cast list resembled an extract from leading actor and Sherlock star Benedict Cumberbatch’s address book.

Why is that?
