Based on Harry Bingham’s crime mystery novel Talking to the Dead, there’s a two-part adaptation by Gwyneth Hughes on the market that you should definitely take a look at. Sophie Rundle stars as DC Fiona Griffiths, who’s got a dark past — and a gift.
David Tennant and Sophie Okonedo star in this BBC One drama penned by David Wolstencroft — the brain behind Spooks/MI-5. This one’s about a junior barrister, Will Burton, who has a knack for getting everyone […]

Oh, CRUMPETS. This is Christmas Smithmas. Lots of Doctor Who trivia, great chemistry between Matt, Chris, and Craig, and crazy discussions about meeting Tiffany in Vegas. Matt said this was his first US late night […]

I’d already watched a few episodes of Spooks, but I never got around to watching any other productions featuring Philip Glenister. Terribly ashamed of myself, I took a good look and found: Demons, first aired in 2009. (Beware: Spoilers ahead! If you haven’t watched it yet, but want to, you might want to come back afterwards.
