We all heard the news that Christopher Eccleston may be starring in the forthcoming remake of The Prisoner. Now The Independents Pandora reports that CE may have had a bust-up with the producers and Sky are getting cold feet.
“Christopher did contact Granada earlier this year, when talks about the project began,” they say. “But since the casting process has only just begun, we are also looking elsewhere.”
Quelle surprise. Odd that he should have initiated contact with the producers, as he did with Doctor Who, and then mess everything up himself (assuming Pandora's right). But it seems that if there's a way to sabotage his own career, Eccleston will find it every time. Let's hope he can pull himself together again and get back into the game.

NBC were going to give The West Wing a great big send-off this Sunday, just before the show's last ever episode. But just as the network cancelled the series because of falling ratings and high costs, they've cancelled the interviews-and-clips special for the same reasons. Sad that, isn't it?

Having trouble getting to sleep on a Saturday night? Well happy happy joy joy, this Saturday coming sees not only a repeat of the stupefyingly dull remake of A for Andromeda, there's now the glorious chance to watch the only remaining episode of the original series, The Face of the Tiger, at the reassuringly late time of 10.40pm. Now, remember that the oh-so-dull remake clocked in at only 90 minutes. This is episode six and runs at 40 minutes. Oh my. Can't wait.
