downton abbey christmas 2013

We all know how nasty internet trolls can be, and have seen the effects that they have had on some of our favourite stars over the past few years, so it’s always nice when we hear that one person who has been targeted refuses to let them get to her.

Cilla: Sheridan Smith shines as the legendary entertainer in this lightweight biopic (Spoilers)

Sheridan Smith

Over the last two years, I feel that Sheridan Smith has definitely established herself as one of British TV’s top actresses, with roles in dramas as diverse as Accused, The 7:39 and The Widower, Smith has proved that she can adapt her style over a number of different genres.

But it was her fantastic portrayal in Mrs Biggs that first put Smith on the map and landed her a Best Dramatic Actress Bafta in the process. The man behind Mrs Biggs, writer Jeff Pope, has now cast Smith as the lead in his new biographical drama about the early life of one of the country’s most recognisable icons, Cilla Black.

Gracepoint Spoilers: Anna Gunn reveals ending is “Chilling & shocking!”

Gracepoint

With the excitement building for the second series of the hit UK murder mystery, Broadchurch, it is easy to forget that we have almost as much to look forward to when the US remake, Gracepoint hits our screens too!

At first the prospect of a US version of a whodunit that we had already seen the conclusion to didn’t feel us with much anticipation, after all we already knew the punch line, but then reports started coming in that Gracepoint would feature significant differences to the UK series, including a new ending.

We can think of many words to describe Sherlock, and genius, gorgeous and quaint are but a few, but we don’t think that the word psychotic would have crossed out minds!

But that is precisely the terminology that Benedict Cumberbatch, the actor who plays the iconic detective, has used to describe his character.

The new series of Downton Abbey is less than a fortnight away, and we couldn’t be happier that it’s headed back to our screens…

In the fifth series of the hit ITV period drama, there’s a focus on the election of Britain’s first ever Labour government and the implications that has for the residents of Downton Abbey as the shift in politics runs the risk of not just upsetting the lives of those upstairs, but those downstairs too who of course rely on the aristocratic society for employment.

We can’t help but think that Mrs Hughes and Mr Carson, the head servants in Downton Abbey, would look simply delightful on the dance floor, but would the actors who play them think so?

Ever since the start of the hit ITV period drama Mr Carson (Jim Carter) and Mrs Hughes (Phyllis Logan) have kept the entire house in check, whist developing their own, very unique and tender friendship.
