Every week day, I let you know what’s happening in the world of television from around the world
On this particular Thursday, something was moving quietly through the blogosphere…
- Michelle Collins has been cast in a/the Chris Chibnall episode. No doubt she’ll be with evil Ian Beale in his extinct undersea volcano base.
- Ricky Gervais might be thinking of doing a one-off Extras special with Mel Gibson.
- The Beeb’s iPlayer has been approved by the governors. Yes, you’ll be able to watch Doctor Who with it. And thankfully, the board of governors have decreed the Beeb has to make sure the iPlayer works with non-Microsoft systems [registration required].
- Heroes: This season will end on a cliffhanger of sorts.
- Lost: spoilers aplenty on this weeks’s official vidcast. Make sure you get the one marked “LOST: Season 3, Video Podcast 7”
- So much pilot casting: Jordana Brewster is to get the Angelina Jolie role in the Mr and Mrs Smith pilot; Jason O’Mara is probably going to play Philip Marlowe in another pilot, while Ted Danson and Glenn Clone are to appear in an FX legal thriller
- Season three of Airwolf – that’s the sh*t one that’s not quite as sh*t as the one the Canadians made – is coming to DVD in May. Watch as the war helicopter helps disabled kids!
