Season two of Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency continues its pattern of everything being connected – to the point that one of those connections is the magical world of Wendimoor.
That’s right, Dirk, Todd and Farah are about to make connections that lead them to face off with an evil wizard – but only if Todd and Farah can rescue Dirk from Blackwing (now under new/incompetent management).
Season two of Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency returns to BBC America on Saturday, October 14th (9/8C).
BBC America will co-produce Queers, a series of eight short films in which eight established writers respond to the 50th Anniversary of The Sexual Offences Act – which partially decriminalized homosexual acts between men in the UK.
Curated and directed by Mark Gatiss (Sherlock), the films star award winners Alan Cumming, Ben Whishaw, Rebecca Front, Russell Tovey, Gemma Whelan, Ian Gelder, Kadiff Kirwan and Fionn Whitehead. The series will premiere on October 14th at 10/9c.
While the BBC was making history by naming the first female Doctor, the current showrunner was heading a trip to San Diego Comic-Con 2017 – where he presented the first teaser for the 2017 Doctor Who Christmas Special, Twice Upon a Time.
The teaser reunites the Doctor with Bill Potts and features a unique event with the first and twelfth Doctors teaming up.
Doctor Who: Twice Upon a Time will premiere on December 25th, of course.
Jodie Whittaker is the new Doctor as new Doctor Who showrunner Chris Chibnall follows former showrunner Steven Moffat’s introduction of a female Master with an even bigger genderbender – and it’s about time (I hear many of you say)!
Whittaker might be best known on this side of the pond for her roles in Broadchurch and the Emmy Award-winning Black Mirror.
Check out mysterious introduction video; reactions from relevant Whovians and a brief interview with Whittaker.
Let’s let series creator Neil Cross put it out there: ‘Now what? It’s a question Idris and I get asked a lot. What happened to John Luther after we last saw him striding unbowed through the streets of his city, his blood red London? It can’t be over, can it? There’s so much we don’t know. So much unfinished business…
It’s been three years since the last time we visited Broadchurch. Both Detective Inspector Alec Hardy and Detective Sergeant Ellie Miller are back on the team at Broadchruch CID after some hopefully recuperative time away when a local woman is sexually assaulted.
Evidence suggests this was not an opportunistic attack; it was planned.
DI Hardy and DS Miller must catch the person responsible or there could well be more such attacks.
