The Doctor Who 50th anniversary special The Day of the Doctor was simulcast in over 200 countries today, creating a nice opportunity to air teasers for other fine British productions.  Naturally, there was a 10-second promo for the Doctor Who Christmas special which promised “Silence Will Fall” and a visit to the planet Trenzalore.  There were also slightly longer 30-second promos for Sherlock season 3 and Orphan Black season 2. Given where the previous season left off, the Sherlock clip opens on a tombstone that reads “Sherlock Holmes” before reassuring fans with the hashtag #sherlocklives.  The Orphan Black clip reveals the April 19, 2014 premiere date, then retreats as a distraught Tatiana Maslany stalks toward the camera.

Sherlock returns to PBS January 19.  Peter Capaldi will be fully revealed as the new Doctor on December 25.  Watch the teasers after the jump.

While Benedict Cumberbatch (The Fifth Estate) and Martin Freeman (The World’s End) will be on the big screen together (in some capacity) in Peter Jackson’s upcoming film, The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, this December, the detective duo will return to the small screen for the third season of Sherlock in January.  To tide fans over, the BBC One has released the first official image from the new season, which returns Stateside starting Sunday, January 19th at 10:00pm on PBS.  Hit the jump to view the full image along with more on the upcoming season.

SHERLOCK: Season 3 to Premiere on PBS on January 19th

Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman have been so busy over the past couple years that I almost forgot we haven’t seen a new episode of Sherlock since May 2012 (January 2012 if you watched the BBC airings).  The duo has been so busy that filming on the third season had to be split up in order to accommodate their schedules.  But the “high-functioning sociopath” is about to return, and U.S. audiences can set their calendars for January 19th at 10:00pm to watch season three on PBS’ Masterpiece.  What’s even crazier is that this means Sherlock will run back-to-back with PBS’ other hugely popular British series, Downton Abbey, which premieres on January 5th.  That’s right: PBS of all channels will be a ratings powerhouse on Sunday nights starting in January.  That’s insane.  It’s great, but insane.

From STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS to THE FIFTH ESTATE: How Benedict Cumberbatch Became a Household Name in 2013

In 1976, Benedict Timothy Carlton Cumberbatch was ushered into our world; in 2013, his incredibly British moniker became a household name when he landed a starring role in the global hit, Star Trek Into Darkness.  Cumberbatch is anything but a one-hit wonder, however, having built a fan following with roles in Atonement, War Horse, and of course, playing the title character in Sherlock.  Cumberbatch continues to test his skills by taking on roles across the spectrum, from voice roles in television with The Simpsons and Peter Jackson’s blockbuster trilogy, The Hobbit, to awards-worthy turns in 12 Years a Slave, The Fifth Estate and August: Osage County.  Hit the jump for more on Cumberbatch’s career, including where he’s been, what we’ll see him in this year, and what films are yet to come.

Sherlockians rejoice! The third season is coming and I’ve seen the proof. Earlier today executive producers Steven Moffat, Mark Gatiss, and Sue Vertue presented Sherlock’s Comic-Con debut to a crowd of frenzied fans. Last we saw Sherlock and Watson was a long 18 months ago when Sherlock faked his own death, leaving John to mourn the loss of his best friend. Fans have been eagerly awaiting both intellectual and emotional satisfaction since the season 2 finale, desperate to know how Sherlock pulled off the amazing stunt and how John will respond to seeing his friend alive and well. Naturally, the tight-lipped team did not answer all the questions tossed their way, but they did clear a few things up and give a glimpse at an absolutely delightful scene from the second episode of season three, “The Sign of Three”. Check out the panel recap after the jump.

Comic-Con 2013 Schedule for Wednesday’s Preview Night and Thursday, July 18th Includes SHERLOCK, ENDER’S GAME, DIVERGENT, and More

Comic-Con has released their schedule for Wednesday’s preview night and for Thursday, July 18th.  For those who haven’t attended Comic-Con before, “Preview Night” is when the Exhibitor’s Floor is opened, and collectors fight tooth and nail for exclusives.  Studios also screen pilots for TV shows that are set to premiere in the fall.  Then on Thursday, we have one of the strangest Hall H line-ups I’ve ever seen.  It begins with a line-up of animated shorts followed by the sci-fi indie Europa Report, and I have no problem with that, but Hall H is usually reserved for stuff that will pack the house.  Granted, that will come later in the day, especially with what’s sure to be an amazing panel: Entertainment Weekly’s The Visionaries, which will be an hour-long conversation between Edgar Wright, Marc Webb, and Alfonso Cuaron.  As for Ballroom 20, the powerhouse of the day is Sherlock, although I would have switched that with Dexter, which is finishing out the day in Hall H.

Hit the jump to check out everything from Hall H, Ballroom 20, and other highlights from the Comic-Con 2013 schedule for Wednesday, July 17th and Thursday, July 18th.

BBC’s SHERLOCK Coming to San Diego Comic-Con

by     Posted 290 days ago

sherlock-benedict-cumberbatch-martin-freeman-slice

This year’s Comic-Con is looking to have a pretty strong line-up of material, and that line-up just got stronger.  EW is reporting that BBC’s Sherlock will make its first appearance at the San Diego Comic-Con ahead of the highly-anticipate third season, which will play on PBS in 2014 after it premieres on BBC.  This is the first time PBS (which airs Sherlock in the U.S.) has ever brought anything to SDCC, although the series did show up at New York Comic-Con.  Showrunners Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss will be on hand for the panel alongside producer Sue Vertue.  Sadly, stars Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman won’t be there since they’re off being big movie stars.  However, EW says “there will be surprises”.  Some enticing footage perhaps, or would that inherently spoil the cliffhanger from the end of season two?

We’ll find out tomorrow when and where the panel will be held.  Since Comic-Con always lines-up their announcements with the convention day (i.e. panels for Friday are announced on the Friday a couple weeks prior), my guess is that Sherlock will have its panel on Thursday, July 18th.  The real question is will Sherlock make it to the massive Hall H, where it belongs and could pack the house, or the slightly smaller Ballroom 20, which is where most of the big-name TV panels are held.

Steven Moffat Talks DOCTOR WHO, His Favorite Upcoming Episodes, Writing the Doctor and Sherlock Holmes, the 50th Anniversary, and More

When Doctor Who returns to BBC America on March 30th, the Doctor (Matt Smith) kicks off this new run of adventures through space and time by searching for his companion Clara (Jenna-Louise Coleman), a mysterious girl that he’s already lost twice.  Together they find themselves battling monsters on distant alien planets, trapped in a Russian submarine with a deadly passenger, chasing terrifying ghosts, delving into the heart of the TARDIS, facing the Crimson Horror in Victorian Yorkshire, and coming face-to-face with an army of upgraded Cybermen.  The action grows and the Doctor’s oldest secret threatens to be revealed, as the world’s longest running science fiction series builds toward its highly anticipated 50th anniversary in November.

During this recent interview to promote the upcoming episodes, executive producer/lead writer Steven Moffat talked about what Jenna-Louise Coleman brings to the series, what made Clara the right companion for the Doctor, his favorite upcoming episodes, which monsters were the most fun to write, the impetus for bringing the Ice Warriors back, his approach to writing characters as iconic as the Doctor and Sherlock Holmes (he’s co-creator on Sherlock with Mark Gatiss), the biggest challenges and surprises in this set of upcoming episodes, what makes Doctor Who so universal, and the fact that he’s pretty confident that they’ll be able to deliver something great for the 50th anniversary.  Check out what he had to say after the jump.

Anticipation is high for the upcoming third season of the excellent BBC series Sherlock, and production on the three-episode season recently got underway in the UK.  Though the episodes won’t begin to air until this coming winter, executive producer Mark Gatiss has taken to Twitter to reveal the title of the first episode and, subsequently, plot details have also surfaced by way of the Arthur Conan Doyle source material for the story.  Since I know not everyone is completely caught up with season two of Sherlock (you should really get on that), I’ll leave the spoilerish material until after the jump.

If you haven’t yet seen season two of Sherlock, be warned that you will be very much spoiled if you keep reading.

Two of Britain’s best recent miniseries are finally gearing up for new seasons: on the heels of Idris Elba‘s psychological crime drama Luther‘s third season announcement, there has now finally been confirmation of a new series of the BBC One hit Sherlock as well.  Though Sherlock was more of a “when, not if” scenario (with writing taking place, reportedly, near the end of last year), its stars have been busy with other projects – Benedict Cumberbatch has been in Germany filming the Wikileaks movie The Fifth Estate, while Martin Freeman has been filming The Hobbit trilogy.

But somehow it’s all finally coming together (Amen!) and initial read-throughs will start next Monday.  This is a few months after its original shooting date, but better late than never.  Hit the jump for more about upcoming directors for the three new episodes.

As part of the PBS portion of the TCA Press Tour, President and CEO Paula Kerger took some time to discuss the hugely popular drama series Downton Abbey.  During the interview, she spoke about why she thinks both Downton and Sherlock have experienced such tremendous success, whether the casting changes for Season 4 of Downton might affect the show’s popularity, the chances of synching up the timing of the U.S. run of Downton to the show’s run in Britain to avoid spoilers, and that they’re already at work on Season 4.  Check out what she had to say after the jump.

2013 Producers Guild Awards Nominees Include LINCOLN, DJANGO UNCHAINED, LES MISERABLES, and SKYFALL

by     Posted 1 year, 107 days ago

The nominations for the 2013 Producers Guild Awards have been announced.  The PGA’s are a fairly reliable predictor of the Academy Awards, as last year all but two eventual Best Picture nominees (The Tree of Life and Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close) were PGA nominees.  This year’s contenders include expected fare like Argo, Les Miserables, and Lincoln, indies such as Beasts of the Southern Wild and Moonrise Kingdom, and critical favorite Zero Dark Thirty.  The PGA’s are also fond of singling out one “popular” choice, and in this year’s case that film looks to be the excellent Skyfall

In addition to the feature films, the PGAs also announced the nominees in television.  Drama series nominees include the usual suspects like Homeland, Mad Men, Breaking Bad, and Game of Thrones, while the comedy category is filled out by 30 Rock, Louie, Modern Family, and for some reason The Big Bang Theory.  Notably absent is HBO’s Girls and NBC’s brilliant Parks and Recreation.  Hit the jump to check out the full list of film and television nominees.  The 24th Annual PGA Awards will be held on January 26th.
