Ian Fleming, who famously created James Bond, was in reality a British Naval Intelligence officer during World War II.

Lara Pulver, who made a splash as Irene Adler in SHERLOCK and is on DA VINCI’S DEMONS as Clarice Orsini, plays Ann in FLEMING. She’s present at […]Read On »

The literary figure Irene Adler lives up to her surname – she is the only woman ever to addle Arthur Conan Doyle’s famous detective Sherlock Holmes. With that sort of power, it’s no wonder the character turns up to bedazzle and bedevil Holmes in SHERLOCK, a contemporary take on the sleuth developed by writers/producers Mark Gatiss and Steven Moffat for the BBC. Season Two begins nex Sunday, May 6, on PBS at 9 PM in the U.S. (Season Two previously ran on the BBC starting New Year’s Day).

ASSIGNMENT X: “The 10 L’il Grifters Job” is such a great concept for a LEVERAGE episode … especially with the nod to Timothy Hutton’s dad Jim Hutton who played Ellery Queen [in the 1975 TV series of the same name]. DEAN DEVLIN: Everyone in that episode got to dress up as their favorite detective, so […]Read On »

Stars: Timothy Hutton, Gina Bellman, Aldis Hodge, Christian Kane, Beth Riesgraf, William Russ Writers: Geoffrey Thorne Director: Arvin Brown Network: TNT, Sundays @ 9 PM Airdate: July 3, 2011 The LEVERAGE episode “The 10 Li’l Grifters Job” feels like it wanted to be a telefilm. It certainly has all the elements – an Agatha Christie set-up, schemes within schemes and Nate (Timothy Hutton) having a whole new worry about what his friends think of him. However, in a one-hour time slot (with plenty of commercials), there simply isn’t time to do justice to what’s here. In “Grifters,” Nate and the […]Read On »
