Following the announcement that BBC Three will be given the reboot in 2022, let's take a trip down memory lane at some of their best shows.
The Golden Globe Award nominees have been announced, with BBC’s The Night Manager up for four awards. Tom Hiddleston is nominated for Best Actor in the TV Movie or Mini-Series category for his intense performance as Jonathan Pine, with the sublime Olivia Coleman and Hugh Laurie both named in the Best Supporting Actress and Actor categories for TV Movie or Mini-Series.
Over the course of the past six weeks, the BBC has been airing a lavish adaptation of John le Carré’s novel, The Night Manager; each episode reportedly took £3 million to film and produce, spanning locations such as Cairo, Mallorca and Turkey. The miniseries was fronted by a stellar cast, including Tom Hiddleston, Hugh Laurie and Olivia Coleman, and it’s been met with rave reviews.
Peter Capaldi channeled the spirit of The Thick Of It’s sweary political manipulator at his Letters Live performance – to convey how Tucker would have reacted to abuse if he’d been alive hundreds of years ago. Capaldi also performed a poignant letter from Captain Reginald John Armes to his wife from December 24, 1914, which told of his fears of war. Shami Chakrabarti, Jack Dee and Miriam Margolyes were among the other performers on Monday night.
