The Friday News Roundup: The "I Hate Storms" Edition

Happy Friday, Telly Visions readers! And welcome back to the News Roundup. What a week for us DC folks, huh? Huge storms, record-breaking heat and lots of us stuck with no power for days. Hope all of you reading here in our local area are staying safe and cool in the aftermath of all this mess. (And if you haven’t gotten power back yet, my heart goes out to you. Here’s hoping it gets fixed soon!)

Sadly, my home internet is still a victim of this whole storm situation, so if content is a bit lighter than normal around here this weekend, bear with me for a bit. (And thanks in advance!)

Anyway, onward! Click through for some of the latest bits and bobs from the world of British entertainment, including goodies on Sherlock, Downton Abbey, Primeval, Elementary, Doctor Who, The Inbetweeners, The Hollow Crown, Broadchurch and more!

The Friday News Roundup: Heatwave Edition

Happy Friday Telly Visions readers! Hope that wherever you are as we get the weekend underway, it’s someplace with air conditioning!

For those of you not in the DC local area, just an FYI, the heat has been brutal here the past few days. Sympathies to my fellow East Coasters, I know a lot of y’all have had things just as warm as we have!

Obviously, this means you should take a few minutes, kick back and stay cool by reading all the latest and greatest in this week’s News Roundup! Click through for bits and bobs on Doctor Who, Downton Abbey, Doc Martin, Copper, that upcoming American remake of The Inbetweeners, a new series starring David Tennant called The Politician’s Wife and more!

Friday News Roundup: Hello, Summer Edition

Happy Friday, Telly Visions readers! Welcome to summer – well, only sort of, I suppose, as summer technically, doesn’t officially begin for a couple weeks according to the calendar, but I know most of us in the States tend to track it with the passing of Memorial Day weekend. And I don’t know about your part of the world, but it’s been stunningly lovely in the DC area – a few freak/sudden storms aside. Everyone get outside and enjoy it, before it gets too hot!

Friday also means that it’s News Roundup time around here! Click through for loads of updates from around the world of British entertainment, including Sherlock, Doc Martin, Downton Abbey, Misfits, Bedlam, Red Dwarf, last weekend’s Diamond Jubilee festivities and more!

Friday News Roundup: Diamond Jubilee Edition

Happy Friday, Telly Visions readers! It’s a big weekend for anglophiles, as the UK gears up to officially celebrate Queen Elizabeth’s Diamond Jubilee. Sixty years on the throne! So, if you see a bit more Britishness around the internet this weekend, it’s because we all want to celebrate with her. I know I plan to get up very early on Sunday to watch the Diamond Jubilee Pageant on the Thames and I imagine many of you may be doing something similar. (You can find details how how/where to watch all the pomp and pageantry in today’s roundup. Just FYI.)

So, today’s News Roundup is in honor of Her Majesty, long may she continue to reign. (She’s a bit under four years away from becoming England’s longest reigning monarch!) Click through for the best tidbits from around the world of British entertainment this week, including Sherlock, Downton Abbey, Black Mirror, Doctor Who, the always amazing Eurovision song contest, a sprinkling of early Diamond Jubilee coverage and more!

Happy Friday, folks! Let’s jump right in to this week’s News Roundup – pausing only briefly to express relief that we seem to be actually back on a weekly schedule again, hurrah!

So, click through for this week’s dose of interesting news from the land of British (and British-related) entertainment, including Downton Abbey, Sherlock, Absolutely Fabulous, The Only Way is Essex, Being Human and more!

The Friday News Roundup: We're Back Again Edition

The Friday News Roundup makes a (another) triumphant return! Well, more like slinks backs into your lives after entirely too much excitement with Sherlock, Benedict Cumberbatch and Steven Moffat last week, but the first phrasing just sounds so much better. (There’s a chance this feature may ultimately end up becoming a biweekly one, but maybe not. We’ll see.)

Anyway, all is back to normal again and my life is sadly Cumberbatch-free once more except for my TV on Sunday nights, so let’s get back into what really matters, which is all the interesting bits and bobs from the world of British entertainment in the past couple weeks. Click through for tidbits about Sherlock, Downton Abbey, Parade’s End, Call the Midwife, Doctor Who, Top Gear, Rev and loads more.

Well, triumphant may be a stretch but nevertheless – we’re back with all the news that’s fit to type in the world of British entertainment, culture and/or generally fun things. The list is a bit lengthy this time out, since we took last week off; so there really is something for everyone, I think.
