Benedict Cumberbatch: 'Jonny Lee Miller is great as Sherlock'


Benedict Cumberbatch has praised Jonny Lee Miller's performance as Sherlock Holmes in CBS show Elementary.

Like the BBC's Sherlock, the US show sets Arthur Conan Doyle's character in the modern day. It cast Cumberbatch's friend and Frankenstein co-star in its lead role.



"I watched it... it's great. It's watching an actor I really like playing a part I really like and enjoy playing," Cumberbatch told Digital Spy and other journalists.

"And to see him relishing it in similar ways is fantastic. I think he's doing a wonderful job."

Quizzed how he would out-Sherlock his friend, Cumberbatch replied: "There are 78 of us all vying for the position, out-Sherlocking one another. So we're in good company."

After initially admitting to feeling "cynical" about Elementary when it was first announced, Cumberbatch later called the show "fantastic" and urged people to watch.

However, Cumberbatch's Sherlock co-star Martin Freeman admitted that he had not seen Elementary, which stars Lucy Liu as Joan Watson.


"I haven't and that's not a snubbing, it's just because I haven't seen most shows from anywhere," Freeman said.

"I wish them the best of luck, I think she's great, I think Jonny Lee Miller is really good."

Show co-creator Steven Moffat added: "The truth is we haven't seen it... the only thing we can do is maintain absolute separation.

"It's not just one other version of Sherlock Holmes, it's every other version of Sherlock Holmes. There's the Robert Downey Jr films.

"Basil Rathbone and Jeremy Brett live on television most days if you look hard enough! You're never the only version of Sherlock Holmes. "


Of whether he and Mark Gatiss would do episodes that did not spring off a Conan Doyle story, Moffat said: "We sort of have already. There are episodes that are brand-new stories really, with ingredients and elements from the original.

"We don't feel any sort of obligation to start from an original. There are just so many unused, untouched ideas in the original that you want to go for them. The majority of our stories are new."

Gatiss agreed: "They are really. There's obviously enshrined moments and things like that. I put the harpoon from '[The Adventure of] Black Peter into 'Baskerville' because it's a cool moment.

"That story never gets done - there's nothing much to it apart from a man getting speared through a wall. But it's a cool idea. I think there's so much brilliant stuff in Doyle."

Sherlock will return for a third series on January 1, 2014 at 9pm on BBC One.

Martin Freeman almost missed out on Sherlock role due to bad audition

Martin Freeman has revealed that he almost missed out on the role of Dr Watson in Sherlock.

The 42-year-old star of The Hobbit revealed to Radio Times, that his first audition was not successful after being a victim of robbery earlier in the day.



Freeman said that he felt distracted in the audition and meeting with producers, after he was targeted by a thief and had his wallet stolen.

"I'll admit maybe I was a bit stressed," said the actor, who stars alongside his real-life partner Amanda Abbington in the third series of the hit BBC One drama - which returns next week.

"But a week later my agent rang and said, 'Listen, this Sherlock thing, they're sort of under the impression you weren't that into it.' And I said 'Oh... I am really interested. Please call them and let them know that I am interested.' I wasn't being blase about it at all. I just wasn't on my best day."

Freeman then added that it was a chemistry test with co-star Benedict Cumberbatch that ensured he got the role.

"I came in again, read with Benedict and it instantly worked, it seemed to me... I thought he was a fantastic actor and there was something about our rhythms, similarities and differences that meant that it just happened."

Sherlock returns on BBC One, January 1, 9pm.

Doctor Who Christmas special breaks BBC America ratings record

BBC America achieved its highest-ever audience on Christmas Day, as 2.47m tuned in for this year's Doctor Who festive special.

'The Time of The Doctor' broke the US channel's ratings record that had only been set a month previously by Doctor Who's 50th anniversary special, which drew 2.4m viewers.



Matt Smith made his final appearance as the titular Time Lord in Wednesday's episode, bowing out of the role after almost five years.

The Thick Of It's Peter Capaldi made his debut at the end of the show.

A special looking back at Smith's time on Doctor Who also performed well for the channel, with 1.54m tuning in immediately before his last show.


Smith's goodbye and The Doctor's regeneration was the most-watched five-minute segment on British television on Christmas Day, drawing 10.2m viewers on BBC One.

The show was watched by an average of 8.29m, with Mrs Brown's Boys topping the overall UK Christmas Day ratings with an audience of 9.4m.

Alex Kingston on Matt Smith 'Doctor Who' exit: "You have to move on"

Friday, June 7, 2013



Alex Kingston has revealed that she knew of Matt Smith's intention to leave Doctor Who.

It was announced last Saturday (June 1) that Smith would be departing the BBC sci-fi drama at Christmas.


"I wasn't surprised [by the news], because he and I had a chat," Kingston explained during an appearance on BBC One's The One Show last night (June 5).

"At some stage, you have to move on and we did discuss when would be the right time in a young actor's career [to leave] if they were very associated with a particular role."

Kingston added that 30-year-old Smith was wise to depart the series before he became "typecast" as the Doctor.

"You have to move on, otherwise it becomes very difficult," she said.

Doctor Who will return to BBC One on Saturday, November 23 for its 50th anniversary special, with Matt Smith's final episode following later in the year.

'Doctor Who' Clara was meant to be Victorian governess, says Neil Gaiman

Friday, May 17, 2013


Neil Gaiman has revealed that Doctor Who companion Clara was originally intended to remain a Victorian governess.


Jenna-Louise Coleman played space-faring Oswin Oswald and a Victorian Clara before debuting as the contemporary version of the character who now travels with Matt Smith's Doctor.


 "The original companion was going to be very much the Victorian governess we saw at Christmas," Gaiman - who wrote Saturday's Who episode 'Nightmare in Silver' - told the Radio Times.

 "I wrote about the first ten pages and then they said they'd changed the companion from what I was expecting to something else."


Gaiman explained that he subsequently had to "reshape" his Cybermen tale to reflect the change.

"We decided they can do more weird stuff if it's now the contemporary third incarnation," he said.


Doctor Who's current series concludes this Saturday (May 18) at 7pm on BBC One.

Finale episode 'The Name of the Doctor' - written by showrunner Steven Moffat - promises to resolve the mystery surrounding Clara's multiple identities.

'Doctor Who' finale 'The Name of the Doctor' leaked in US error

Monday, May 13, 2013


Next week's Doctor Who finale 'The Name of the Doctor' has been leaked. The episode is featured on the Series 7 Part 2 Blu-ray release, which was accidentally dispatched early to fans in the US over the weekend


It emerged on May 12th that fans who had pre-ordered the boxset in the US had received the Blu-ray before the final two episodes of the current series had been transmitted.

 Edward Russell, the BBC Brand Manager for Doctor Who, tweeted about the incident and urged those who had received the episodes to not spoil other fans.

 He posted: "Production error in US means DW bluray shipped early. Let's hope no one spoils it for those who want to enjoy it together on Sat. Please RT." The show's official Twitter account has also posted a message concerning the leak.

They too urged fans to consider the enjoyment of others before posting spoilers. They tweeted: "Some US DVDs of this series have gone out early. The #DoctorWho team would be hugely grateful if fans helped keep spoilers off the net."

They continued: "Steven Moffat has promised if fans help keep the finale's secrets, we'll release a special video featuring Matt & David right after the ep!"


 A three-minute prequel for 'The Name of the Doctor' was released by the BBC following the conclusion of last night's episode 'Nightmare in Silver'.

It features the Doctor (Matt Smith) and Clara (Jenna Louise Coleman) admitting how little they know of each other.

 Executive producer Steven Moffat has teased the finale episode, saying that the episode will "change the course of Who forever".

 It is thought that the episode will directly lead in to the 50th anniversary special episode, which is scheduled to air on November 23. 'The Name of the Doctor' airs Saturday May 18 at 7pm on BBC One.

Revolution Renewed for second season!

Monday, April 29, 2013


NBC has renewed "Revolution" for a second season.

 J.J. Abrams' post-apocalyptic drama got off to a good start in September, with the premiere drawing in 11.7 million viewers and a 4.1 rating among adults in the 18-49 demo.

 The ratings remained solid until the show's four-month hiatus -- it was off the air from November 26 to March 25 -- but came back to weaker ratings upon its return, averaging about 6 million viewers.

 Still, the network's decision to renew "Revolution" -- along with "Chicago Fire," "Law & Order: SVU," "Grimm" and "Parenthood" -- comes as no surprise.

Season 2 of the series, which also stars Giancarlo Esposito, Tracy Spiridakos and Elizabeth Mitchell, will be 22 episodes. 

 "Revolution" airs on Mondays at 10 p.m. ET on NBC in the US & Mondays at 10pm on Sky1 and Sky1 HD in the UK.

'Doctor Who' finale will change the show forever, says Steven Moffat

Saturday, April 27, 2013


Doctor Who's Steven Moffat has revealed new details about series finale 'The Name of the Doctor'.

The upcoming episode will introduce a new menace to the BBC sci-fi series, known as The Whispermen.


"Having brought back two of the classics, the Ice Warriors and the Cybermen, this year we wanted a brand new monster to create chills in the finale," Moffat said.

"And the thought of stylish, whispering, almost faceless creatures was an idea that firstly scared me and that I thought would work well in an episode that looks forward and back."

The showrunner also promised that 'The Name of the Doctor' will "change the course of Who forever".

"It's full of surprises and questions that have never been answered in the history of Who, including the Doctor's greatest secret," Moffat claimed.

"We'll also find out what makes his new companion [Clara, played by Jenna-Louise Coleman] so impossible and there's a surprise that no-one has got right so far."


Coleman previously appeared on Doctor Who as space-faring Oswin and Victorian governess Clara, with the Doctor attempting to unravel the mystery of her multiple identities in recent episodes.

Hinting at what to expect from the finale, Coleman teased: "All I can say is that Clara hasn't just met the Doctor three times before."
