Following up on Scott’s article at The Stage’s TV Today blog, the Sunday Mail (not be confused with the Mail on Sunday) has an interview with a certain British actor on his involvement in season three of Lost. Brace yourself for massive spoilers, whether you’ve seen all of season two or not.

As discussed earlier this week, Aquaman is a dead pilot. It has ceased to be. Or to WB, which was its original destination. Then The WB network decided to merge with UPN to create The CW (it’s all a bit Reggie Perrin, isn’t it?) and Aquaman got squeezed out.
The question is: was Aquaman unfairly denied airtime? Should it be up in the Brilliant But Cancelled Hall of Fame?
No. It shouldn’t. It’s pants. Or should that be trunks?
The Media Guardian reports that Sir Alan’s in-depth televised quests for new office workers may only stretch to one more series. Turns out Sir Alan wants a greater say in which candidates he gets to pick from – understandable, since he eventually has to employ one of them – while the production company wants candidates that will make great television. Unless that particular conflict is sorted out, Sir Alan is going to have to resort Monster.com in the future.
Nice little article on the future of S4C, everyone’s favourite Welsh-language channel, over at the Western Mail. Interesting to note that the reporter seems shocked that “the number of staff earning more than £60,000 per year rose from 7 to 12 in the past year, with more than 50 earning more than £40,000”. That’s 12 people at an entire channel earning over £60,000. It’s a miracle. How do they keep it so low?
It’s not often, particularly with all the cutbacks major networks are going through, that some new studios are opened. But BBC Wales has just opened a really rather big complex in Upper Boat that’s dedicated to filming Doctor Who and Torchwood. Kudos guys!
