It's 20 years since David Brent first made the world cringe. We look at the stars of the hit sitcom and ask where are they now?
ITV’s highly-anticipated true-crime drama A Confession premiered Monday night, but some viewers were forced to ‘turn off’ after complaining about the show’s camerawork.
'The Office' star plays a police officer who broke the law to secure a murder confession in the true crime drama.
Benedict Cumberbatch called his Sherlock co-star Martin Freeman “pathetic” for complaining about the attention from fans of the hit TV show. Cumberbatch plays Sherlock Holmes in the BBC drama, while Mr Freeman portrays his assistant, Dr Watson. In an interview with the Daily Telegraph, Cumberbatch disagreed, labelling his colleague's unhappiness "pathetic".
On June 1, 1967, The Beatles released their seminal 8th studio album, Sgt.Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band. As the 50th anniversary approaches, the BBC will celebrate with programmes across TV and radio. BBC Two will present Sgt.Pepper’s Musical Revolution, written and presented by Howard Goodall, the EMMY, BRIT and BAFTA award winning composer, best known to TV fans for his work on The Vicar of Dibley, Red Dwarf and Blackadder.
Firstly, John was shot – with a tranquilizer. Which you would have known if you were paying attention at 6 minutes 36 seconds into the episode, when he advises Mycroft that Eurus shot him, and Sherlock dismisses it as “only with a tranquilizer”.
It’s the series finale of ‘Sherlock’… and it’s time to say goodbye. No doubt you’ve all been on pins after last week’s revelation that ‘Sherlock’ has a secret sister… and it came as no surprise when we found out this week that he didn’t have a clue about her all these years. Is she be a match for Sherlock?
Make no mistakes – ‘Sherlock’ is back… and better than ever. After a lacklustre opening episode, ‘Sherlock’ Series 4 was off to a rocky start. The game is on, folks… and ‘Sherlock’ is putting his thinking cap on.
More than that, though, I was quite disappointed by the death of Mary Watson – it was difficult not to view that as a misstep, albeit one which would clearly have significant repercussions for the rest of the series, again establishing a brand-new status quo for Sherlock moving forward. You can tell it’s a concept Moffat and Gatiss are aware of – there’s a knowing nod to the idea in The Six Thatchers, with Mycroft looking forlornly into a fridge and then closing it shortly after Mary’s (apparent) death.
‘Sherlock’ is back… but things aren’t quite the same. A lot has changed since ‘Sherlock’ first sleuthed his way onto our screens in 2010 with his first case – ‘A Study in Pink’. Instead, Sherlock is involved in another mystery concerning Mary Watson.
Ahead of Sherlock’s return tonight, I thought it’d be appropriate to take a look at his other return – his return from the grave – and why I felt it didn’t quite work. In 2012, Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss presented The Reichenbach Fall, a loose adaptation of Arthur Conan Doyle’s Holmes story The Final Problem. It presented a fairly unambiguous depiction of Sherlock’s suicide, indicating he was quite dead – this, of course, wasn’t the case.
Ahead of Sherlock’s return on New Year’s Day, a new trailer has been released, revealing a few interesting new details. The ending of last year’s The Abominable Bride made it obvious that Sherlock would begin to explore its eponymous character’s drug use and abuse, an idea that series creators Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss had previously made a conscious choice to avoid. There’s no sign of Moriarty here – the focus is very much on Toby Jones’ new villain, one Culverton Smith.
For fans of Sherlock it now seems like an absolute lifetime since the last season was on our screens. Is Moriarty truly gone? Andrew Scott’s Moriarty is unquestionably one of the finest TV villains in recent years.
Actress Amanda Abbington has taken to twitter to slam the mystery person who nicked her handbag at last night’s Emmy Awards, with the star claiming that it was stolen from under her seat when she went up on stage. Amanda joined the rest of her Sherlock castmates to accept the accolade for Outstanding Television Movie for Sherlock: The Abominable Bride, but when she returned to her seat in the Microsoft Theatre in Los Angeles, her belongings had been moved.
At this year’s San Diego Comic Con, a trailer for the fourth season of the acclaimed BBC show Sherlock was released. Sherlock season 4, set to be transmitted in early 2017, boasts a series of exotic locales, an appearance by Toby Jones, and perhaps most excitingly of all, an episode directed by Rachel Talalay. It seems, then, that Benedict Cumberbatch’s time is going to be stretched quite thin – indeed, he began filming Doctor Strange the day after having finished with this year’s Sherlock filming.
’Sherlock’ Series 4 may have added an iconic British thief. According to Digital Spy, British actor Sacha Dhawan has joined ‘Sherlock’ Series 4… But does his character’s name give the game away? “The top-drawer cast for Sherlock series four has hired another familiar face, with Sacha Dhawan signing up,” they revealed.
Martin Freeman and Benedict Cumberbatch are back shooting the fourth (and potentially final) series of hit show Sherlock. The new series picks up exactly where the New Year’s special, The Abominable Bride’ left off. Meanwhile, John Watson (Freeman) is facing an even bigger challenge - first time fatherhood.
Martin Freeman and Amanda Abbington have been together since 2000 but it seems that Freeman might have now let the cat out of the bag on their secret wedding. Speaking to The Times last year, Freeman remained tight-lipped about whether or not the couple had gotten hitched. Martin and Amanda have two children together, Joe, aged nine, and Grace, aged seven, but the 44-year old actor also discussed the difficulties of being away from home while working but confirmed that his priorities were in order.
