The ‘Sherlock’ Stars Get Silly in This Series 3 Blooper Clip

Well, Sherlock fandom, occasionally wishes do come true – the first official blooper clip from the show has made its way online – with the promise of more to come!

Go Behind the Scenes with ‘Downton Abbey’s’ Hugh Bonneville on ‘Top Gear’

Just in case you were wondering where Hugh Bonneville got off to during that episode of Downton Abbey where Robert was off-screen – well, it looks like he went straight to the Top Gear track.

The Downton star – best known for his role as uber-posh Earl of Grantham Robert Crawley – recently appeared on mega-popular driving series as the Star in a Reasonably-Priced Car and did a lap of the Top Gear race track in a 1.6 Tech Line Vauxhall Astra.

Seems a bit of a comedown from the vehicles Lord Robert might have expected, but it’s likely that even a reasonably-priced car from today goes a great deal more quickly than their Edwardian era counterparts.

Here’s a look at a fun behind-the-scenes segment documenting Bonneville’s track experience, which is incredibly fun to watch. Bonneville is possibly even more charming than you might have otherwise expected, and his glee at just getting to drive a car really fast is palpable.

He also manages to drive the car off the course quite a lot.

Saying Goodbye to Eleven: Go Behind the Scenes of Matt Smith’s Emotional Final Moments in ‘Doctor Who’

It’s been a bit over a week since Doctor Who Christmas special The Time of the Doctor aired – the episode in which we bid a fond farewell to Matt Smith’s Eleventh Doctor, said hello to Peter Capaldi’s Twelve, and were basically left flailing in anticipation for Series 8, which is a tremendously long eight months away, at best. Yikes.

While opinions about Smith’s swan song are decidedly mixed – for me, The Time of the Doctor hit several really nice emotional beats, almost all of which were derailed in various places by a draggy plot that was alternately dull and confusing – most everyone can agree that the actor did some truly wonderful work in the episode. And it’s going to be weird having a new face driving the TARDIS after all this time, no matter how accomplished an actor is picking up the sonic screwdriver. So it’s okay if you’re still in a little bit of mourning at the moment.

WATCH: The ‘Sherlock’ Cast and Crew Dish What’s Ahead in Series 3

As you may have heard, new behind-the-scenes documentary Unlocking Sherlock is streaming online in full prior to its on-air debut January 12, and it takes a look at how popular mystery series Sherlock came to be. This is, of course, all completely well and good and fascinating – the film is a totally worthwhile way to spend an hour or so of your time.

However, if you’re a Sherlock fan, what you probably really want to know about after a two-year hiatus is as much scoop as humanly possible on the new episodes, and what Series 3 will look like. Luckily, you can have the best of both worlds.

Get a Behind the Scenes Look at ‘Doctor Who’ Drama ‘An Adventure in Space and Time’

As part of the Doctor Who 50th anniversary celebrations, origin drama An Adventure in Space and Time told the story behind the iconic sci-fi series’ beginnings and the people who made the show possible.

The drama was written by Sherlock co-creator (and frequent Who scribe) Mark Gatiss and starred David Bradley as First Doctor William Hartnell, alongside Jessica Raine as original producer Verity Lambert, Sacha Dhawan as director Warris Hussein and Brian Cox as BBC Head of Drama Sydney Newman.

(If you haven’t seen it yet, do try and find an Adventure in Space in Time repeat or locate it on your on-demand service. It’s quite simply wonderful and if you are in any degree a fan of Doctor Who, you will love it.)

The BBC has released a special ten-minute behind-the-scenes clip about the making of this special anniversary film, which you can watch below.

Get a Behind the Scenes Look at Mr. Selfridge!

We're getting close to the premiere of new Masterpiece drama Mr. Selfridge. This period drama stars Jeremy Piven as visionary American entrepreneur Harry Gordon Selfridge and chronicles the founding of the famous Oxford Street department store that still bears his name today. I mean, of course it'll still be packed with loads of secondary characters and drama and intrigue and fabulous outfits, but that's the basic central theme of the thing.

Selfridge was particularly successful at restructuring the public's attitude toward shopping in the early 1900s, and turned it into a fun and desirable social activity for high society ladies. It seems like it ought to be pretty fun.

Get a look behind the scenes of this new series - including new footage and some backstage dish from the cast and producers, as they talk about the history of the period, including Selfridge's many accomplishments and rather dramatic personal life. Give it a look below.

Hit British Drama Call the Midwife Premieres This Sunday!

The BBC’s highest rated new drama series is coming to America this weekend – Call the Midwife premieres on Sunday, September 30!

Call the Midwife is set in the East End of London in the 1950s and tells the story of young Jenny Lee (played by Jessica Raine), a newly qualified midwife who begins work at a nursing convent, Nonnatus House. The plot follows the stories of Jenny and her fellow midwives as they care for expectant mothers in the economically-deprived neighborhoods of London’s East End. It’s a very sweet and moving story about class and poverty and love and community and I think that almost everyone is really going to enjoy it. To be fair, the series can occasionally get a bit saccharine given the subject matter, but is generally excellent and a wonderful way to spend an hour on Sundays for the next six weeks.

Click through to preview this new drama for yourself, watch a couple of clips and take a look behind-the-scenes to see how much detail has gone into in recreating the atmosphere of 1950s London.
