Contemporary crime drama DCI Banks is returning to ITV for a fifth season!

Stars Stephen Tompkinson and Caroline Catz return in a brand new six-part series, based on the books by acclaimed novelist Peter Robinson.  As in previous seasons, the show will once again feature three self-contained stories told over two episodes each. However, in a new twist, a more serial element will also be added, and woven through all six installments. 

David Suchet to Appear in ‘Doctor Who’ Season 10

If you watch more than one British television show, then you probably know you’ll be seeing at the stars of one of them make an appearance on the other at some point. That joke about there being only ~12 working actors in all of the United Kingdom exists for a reason – seeing familiar faces pop up on other British properties is basically part of the fun of being a fan.

So, everyone should be pretty excited (but not that surprised) to learn that super popular actor David Suchet has booked a guest role in Doctor Who Season 10. Of course, in the grand tradition of Doctor Who, there are virtually no details available about Suchet’s character, other than the fact that he goes by the name of The Landlord and will appear in an episode written by playwright Mike Bartlettwho also penned the award-winning King Charles III.

ITV has released another new clip from its upcoming period drama Victoria. 

The eight episode series stars Doctor Who alum Jenna Coleman as the titular monarch, and it charts her early life, from her ascension to the throne in 1837 to her courtship and marriage to Prince Albert.

The newly released scene features the moment that the young Victoria – or Princess Alexandrina Victoria as she was known then – wakes up to learn that her uncle King William IV has died and she is now queen.

Get Excited: Hugh Laurie Has a New TV Show

Hugh Laurie has exactly been doing nothing since his long-running medical drama House wrapped up back in 2012, recently appearing in such popular series as Veep and The Night Manager. But now he’s got a starring role on television once again – or, rather, on popular streaming service Hulu, which is basically television in this day and age– with new drama Chance.

Yes, Laurie is once again playing a doctor, and starring in a show named after his lead character. But that seems to be where the similarities between House and Chance end, as this appears to be a much darker, more stress-inducing affair.

Exciting news for fans of British theater! PBS’s Great Performances will be broadcasting the recent revival production of classic American musical Gypsy starring Imelda Staunton for US audiences this Fall.

Gypsy tells the story of ambitious show business mother Rose, who treks across America with her daughters Baby June and Louise in search of success with their homespun vaudeville act. The show is loosely based on the 1957 memoirs of famous burlesque entertainer Gypsy Rose Lee, and features lyrics by the great Stephen Sondheim and music by Jule Styne.
