Aidan Turner has spent a fair amount of time working outside of the normal human realm. Not literally, of course, but the Irish actor played a vampire in the first three seasons of the original BBC BEING HUMAN, a werewolf in the film MORTAL INSTRUMENTS: CITY OF BONES and a dwarf in love with an elf in Peter Jackson’s cinematic THE HOBBIT trilogy. In POLDARK, in its first season in the U.S. on PBS’ Masterpiece Theatre Sunday nights and renewed for a second, Turner is still playing someone who is brooding and romantic, but he’s at least human. His character […]Read On »

Although he plays all sorts of roles, Brian Cox is known for portraying men who are bold, in charge and often devious. In addition to being the original Hannibal Lektor (as it was then spelled) in MANHUNTER, a few of the Scotland-born actor’s more memorable film roles include Robert McKee in ADAPTATION, Col. William Stryker in X-MEN 2, King Agamemnon in TROY and Russian spy Ivan Simonov in the RED films, plus and BBC executive Sydney Newman in the telefilm AN ADVENTURE IN SPACE AND TIME (about the early years of DOCTOR WHO). Now Cox is adding another character to […]Read On »

THE GAME creator Toby Whithouse on new espionage miniseries – Exclusive Interview

THE GAME | ©2014 BBC America

In BBC America’s new miniseries THE GAME, premiering Wednesday, Nov. 5 at 10 PM, it’s the early 1970s. England and the Soviet Union are spying on one another and it’s not clear to us, or perhaps even to him, where the loyalties of MI-6 agent Joe Lambe (Tom Hughes) truly are. Joe’s love has been murdered by the KGB, so he has vengeance on his mind, while some strange office politics play out at headquarters, where Daddy (Brian Cox) rules the department. Then there’s the possibility of nuclear war, due to a particular secret that the KGB is keen to […]Read On »

Stars: Sam Witwer, Meaghan Rath, Sam Huntington, Kristen Hager, Helen Colliander, Sergio DeZio Writer: Anna Fricke, adapted for U.S. television by Jeremy Carver & Anna Fricke, created for U.K. television by Toby Whithouse Director: Stefan Pleczynski Network: Syfy, Mondays @ 9 PM Airdate: April 7, 2014 When the U.S./Syfy Channel version of BEING HUMAN premiered in 2011 with “There Goes the Neighborhood 1 & 2,” it seemed almost a photocopy of its U.K./BBC predecessor – a vampire, a werewolf and a ghost are roommates. Additionally, the U.S. version seemed to have less humor and more self-pity and sulking among its […]Read On »

That’s right: Ramona (Helen Colliander) isn’t really the ghost of a murdered little […]Read On »

It turns out there’s a walled-up room in the roommates’ home. It contains […]Read On »

Stars: Sam Witwer, Meaghan Rath, Sam Huntington, Kristen Hager, Mark Pellegrino, Amy Aquino, Vincent Leclerc, Andreas Apergis Writer: Casey Fisher, adapted for U.S. television by Jeremy Carver & Anna Fricke, created for U.K. television by Toby Whithouse Director: Stefan Pleszcyznski Network: Syfy, Mondays @ 9 PM Airdate: March 10, 2014 Happily, BEING HUMAN doesn’t decide to permanently warp the timeline. Given that we’ve spent three-and-a-half seasons investing in the one already provided, dumping it now would be a cheat of huge proportions. In “Too Far, Fast Forward!” things get set right – though it’s not clear exactly how – and […]Read On »

Stars: Sam Witwer, Meaghan Rath, Sam Huntington, Kristen Hager, Vincent Leclerc, Sarah Allen, Gianpaolo Venuta, Andreas Apergis, Angela Galuppo Writer: Casey Fisher, adapted for U.S. television by Jeremy Carver & Anna Fricke, created for U.K. television by Toby Whithouse Director: Stefan Pleszcyznski Network: Syfy, Mondays @ 9 PM Airdate: March 3, 2014 You’d think with vampires, werewolves and ghosts already essential features of BEING HUMAN, adding BUTTERFLY EFFECT time travel (actually name-checked here by the characters) might be a bit much, but “Rewind, Rewind” makes it work in a way that is holds our attention. What’s interesting is not how […]Read On »
