I sincerely hope not - I've been wanting him to do Strictly for ages! :o

I'm sure international sales are a major part of the decision to go ahead with both Jekyll & Hyde and Beowulf - but I don't think scheduling will seal the fate of either show domestically. We have no...

BIB - when was the last one? Sapphire And Steel?

Beowulf is being produced by the same guy who helmed Ripper Street - so it may well have a dark streak to it

BIB - two points

First of all, let's be real about who'll want to do Strictly. A few years back, some FMs were suggesting David Tennant should do it: anyone of his profile doesn't need to. And...

Thanks for that.

I'm still baffled by this as a career move for her unless, like Tom Chambers, she's always wanted a West End career and wants to use SCD as a springboard to that?

If that's the...

But success isn't all about how many weeks an album was on the charts.

So many scripted memories, I rather suspect: those shows are very obviously designed with a pre-decided narrative in mind, and then the talking heads drafted in to back that up.
