From Daily Variety:
As I'm sure you know, BBC Radio 4, available to us here in America on the iPlayer free of charge (for the time being, at least), is a dependable source of terrific programming, particularly radio plays with great acting. Lots of the program(me)s have actors who have appeared in WHO. This week:
"Alone in Berlin," the story of German resistance in Berlin during WWII. It stars Ron Cook, who was Mr. Magpie in "The Idiot's Lantern."
Cook is a personal favorite of mine. Look for him in the brilliant Mike Leigh film "Topsy-Turvy," as well as Paul McGann's "Hornblower" and "Filth: The Mary Whitehouse Story," which we discussed in our review of "The Deadly Assassin" a few months ago.
BTW, found this cool site when I was looking for an image. Great behind-the-scenes shots from the ep:
BBC Radio 4 continues to deliver aural gifts to us, license fee be damned!
"Playing the Dane" is a reflection on different interpretations of Hamlet narrated by the amazing Michael Sheen (fleetingly quoting Richard Griffiths' "I shall never play the Dane!," much to my unending delight!), with comments from actors as diverse as David Tennant, Derek Jacobi and John Simm. And people who were never Timelords, like Kenneth Branagh and Jonathan Pryce.
Speak the speech I pray you!
Interesting that this was picked up by Deadline Hollywood, a pretty hardcore Industry blog:
We have become mainstream! Tara, if anyone can find out where they're shooting, it's you. YOU GO, GIRL!
Martha's little sister's got her own show - and you MUST support it!
The Gallifreyan Irregulars love Gugu, and have seen her not only on stage,
but in our Favorite Show About Archaeology:
American TV needs this show. I mean, it's J.J. Abrams. It's gotta be good!
Not only do you get to hear McGann reading extracts from Shackleton's diary, but you get to see a Silent Film. It will be good for you and you will thank me later. And here's an image from a cool new website called, well, Eff Yeah Paul McGann. You're geeky; you'll find it if you want to.
...playing the Roddy McDowell role????
Not sure if you've seen it, but this is kind of crazy and out of control. Idris Elba is phenomenal, as we know, but McGann's character is fantastic too and it's the best he's been in years. Definitely worth your time:
This is why I want to have a pied a terre in London. Anyone need a red-headed house sitter? :)
Um... ahh... not sure this is for me, but I wanted to share:
