Former Doctor Who star David Tennant has been playing all sorts of roles since he left the TARDIS nearly a decade ago now.

Forster’s classic novel of the same name, Howards End follows two unconventional and independent sisters – Margaret and Helen Schlegel – as they seek love and meaning in an ever-changing world. That’s the vaguest description of this story possible, which also includes love, loss, matchmaking, poor decisions, class issues, financial ruin and more.

(Whether for the first or fifteenth time.) 

But, since we're getting another one whether we like it or not, it's an unspeakable relief to discover that the trailer for this upcoming 2020 update starring Anna Taylor-Joy looks great.

Dated or Delightful? ‘Yes Minister’

In this installment of Dated or Delightful, we travel back to 1980 to see if a sitcom about the British government can still be funny.

Almost forty years ago, the BBC’s Yes Minister debuted in the U.K. Its authenticity was credited to the fact that the writers used real Whitehall moles to give them an insider’s perspective. It was the first program to win the BAFTA for Best Comedy three years in a row. It’s been broadcast in 84 countries across the globe and has landed on “favorite/best sitcom” lists over the decades. But does it hold up over time? Let's find out.
