Fifteen-year-old Mary (Adelaide Kane), Queen of Scots, is here to wait for her arranged marriage to the French crown Prince, Francis II (Toby Regbo). Francis’ mother Queen Catherine (Megan Follows) is averse to the match, largely because court prophet Nostradamus (Rossif Sutherland) has warned that Mary will be the cause of Francis’ death. There’s also the matter of Mary’s increasing romantic interest in Francis’ half-brother, Sebastian, better known as Bash, played by Torrance Coombs, who was born to the king’s mistress. The difference between Francis […]Read On »

Yvonne Strahovski is no stranger to playing characters involved in spycraft – witness her five years as the redoubtable Sarah Walker on CHUCK. While her seductive serial killer Hannah McKay on the final two years of DEXTER wasn’t employed by a government agency, she certainly did her share of stealthy acts, too. Now Australian actress Strahovski – who can currently be seen on the big screen in I, FRANKENSTEIN – is headed to London to play a CIA agent stalking Kiefer Sutherland’s Jack Bauer in Fox’s 24: LIVE ANOTHER DAY. The twelve-hour miniseries is scheduled for this summer. Strahovski is […]Read On »

  SHERLOCK is back on the case in his third season on PBS, Sunday at 10 PM, albeit too briefly for most fans – this Sunday’s episode, the third of the current series, is also the season finale. With Benedict Cumberbatch as the famous detective who faked his own death at the end of last season and Martin Freeman as the often irate but loyal and smart Dr. John Watson, series creators Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss’ present-day take on Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s London sleuth has its viewers begging for more.

Margo Martindale very rightly won a Supporting Actress Emmy for her indelible portrayal of backwoods crime queen Mags Bennett on JUSTIFIED in that series’ second season. Since then, the prolific Texas-born actress appeared on two short-lived TV shows, CHAOS and A GIFTED MAN, before playing opposite Meryl Streep and Chris Cooper in the feature film AUGUST: OSAGE COUNTY. In 2013, Martindale took on two television roles that are still ongoing. One is KGB spymaster Claudia, aka Granny, on FX’s THE AMERICANS, which begins its second season Feb. 26. The other is Carol Miller on CBS’s half-hour comedy THE MILLERS, Thursdays […]Read On »

Ian Fleming, who famously created James Bond, was in reality a British Naval Intelligence officer during World War II. BBC America is presenting a miniseries, FLEMING: THE MAN WHO WOULD BE BOND, beginning Wednesday January 29, starring Dominic Cooper as the journalist-turned-spy-turned-author. Fleming’s love life was almost as scandalous as that of his fictional hero. He notably fell in love with Ann O’Neill, who was married to a British nobleman when they met. 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 »

In TRUE DETECTIVE, HBO Sundays at 9 PM, Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey play two very different Louisiana police detectives who worked a seemingly occult serial killer case back in 1995 that seems to be resonating in the present. The closed-ended eight-episode series, created by Nick Pizzolatto, moves back and forth across decades and continually surprises the audience. Michelle Monaghan plays Maggie Hart, the increasingly fed-up wife of Harrelson’s Martin Hart who becomes intrigued by McConaughey’s haunted Rust Cohle. The Iowa-born actress primarily works in feature films, with credits including KISS KISS BANG BANG, MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE III (as the new […]Read On »

SHERLOCK is back for its third season on PBS, Sundays at 10 PM, and not a moment too soon. The series, created by Mark Gatiss & Steven Moffat from Arthur Conan Doyle’s detail-oriented British detective character, has been much missed by its fans during the long gap since the end of Season 2, which saw Benedict Cumberbatch’s Sherlock apparently falling to his death from a rooftop, much to the grief of his friend and detecting partner Dr. John Watson (Martin Freeman). Now Sherlock is back – with an explanation of how and why he disappeared for two years and fooled […]Read On »
