Who Killed Lucy Beale? Apr23

Who Killed Lucy Beal...

Ian’s “favourite” child met her end last Friday. But who is the murderer? We’re scratching our heads a little here, but seeing as the storyline is set to run for a year, there’s still plenty of time to work it out. At this very early stage in the fallout, here are...

Sky Living HD’s Trying Again: Watch the Trailer Apr17

Sky Living HD’...

Sky Living HD’s new original comedy series Trying Again, written by BAFTA award winner Simon Blackwell and starring Chris Addison (The Thick of It) and Jo Joyner (EastEnders), begins next Thursday 24th April from 9pm. Trying Again features a thirty-something couple, Matt (Addison) and Meg...

Game of Thrones: Why...

Everyone’s talking about it. It’s supposedly some sort of Lord of the Rings style fantasy, except with a lot more sex. Somehow, everyone you know seems to like it or at least have an opinion on it – your cool colleague, the noisy kid next door – even your boss. But why has Game of...

Best of Easter TV

The time to kick back, relax and eat chocolate is here. If there’s any room in your busy double bank holiday schedule for some hard-earned telly viewing, here are some shows we think you’ll love. Soaps Eastenders, Good Friday, BBC1, 8pm It’s finally here. Eastenders is killing...

5 Worst Soap Mysteries Apr10

5 Worst Soap Mysteri...

Good Friday sees Lucy Beale murdered and the beginning of Eastenders’ most publicised whodunnit storyline to date. We’re excited to see what happens, but in the meantime, here’s a rundown of some other soap mysteries that didn’t play out quite as well as their channels might...

5 Weirdest Britain’s...

Britain’s Got Talent 2014 begins this Saturday and to celebrate, we’re presenting a list of some of the weirdest moments in the show’s run. It seriously boggles the mind to wonder what these acts were thinking as they performed for the chance to traumatise the Queen. 1. Joan...

10 British Soap Stars That [Sort-Of] Made It In Hollywood Apr04

10 British Soap Star...

British soap land is a wonderful thing, filled with all the regular joys of life – murder, scandal and infidelity – as well as the many awards gongs that make our bright-eyed stars flock to the US West Coast convinced they can achieve the same amount of exposure over there. While most...

Monkey Planet Review

Dr George McGavin looks like a cross between Richard and David (Attenborough). We’re on first name terms. I can’t help missing the Attenboroughs when I watch a nature programme presented by someone else. But with a white beard and khaki shorts, George had clearly done his very best to...

Nigel Farage: Who Ar...

Britain’s most controversial politician was last night the focus of a Channel 4 documentary that, somewhat surprisingly, did not make him out to be a villain.  The show opens with some really rather excellent Harry Potter esque music (I was expecting Voldemort to make an appearance) and...

Who Will Win The Voi...

That time is here again. After about 2 live shows, the final showdown is this Saturday. Who will get your vote? Here’s a rundown of this year’s finalists, if you’ve been hiding under a rock. Or if you quite understandably forgot The Voice was on. 4. Jamie Johnson – Team...

NoRuz: The Persian Spring Mar31

NoRuz: The Persian S...

Slotted awkwardly in a Sunday daytime line-up between Match of the Day Extra and Formula 1, it might have been easy to miss BBC1’s little gem of international culture and history focusing on the ancient Persian festival of NoRuz, still celebrated around the world today. This thirty-minute...

Joanna Lumley Meets ...

People will probably be cynical about this programme. Will.i.am is an unusual guy and therefore quite easy to pick on. Musician, producer, philanthropist, weird clothes, gentle with an asexual demeanour – he’s a bit like Michael Jackson with a corporate make-over, like when coffee...

Mayday: The Passenge...

This was the incredible survival story of 77 year old John Wildey. A kindly, British sort of Grandad, with coffee coloured teeth, watery eyes that sparkled with jokes gone by and nerves of absolute TITANIUM. It all started fairly nicely for John that evening. He’d decided to go for a jolly...

5 Hilarious American...

We’re all a little wary of the American sense of humour (yes, that’s humour with a ‘u’) this side of the water. It’s just a bit…well, obvious (see my previous humour joke). Sometimes it’s painfully forced or exaggerated. The most mundane, unappealing characters are played by...
