Christmas is almost here, and for Call the Midwife fans that means exactly one thing: It’s time for the series’ annual holiday special!

This year’s festive episode takes place in the winter of 1963, during what was popularly dubbed the Big Freeze. This was the coldest winter the nation had seen in 300 years – one which still registers today as one of the coldest on record in the United Kingdom. UK temperatures plunged, bringing the country to a standstill as lakes and rivers froze, and snow fell constantly.

The first trailer for the new BBC and PBS Masterpiece production of Little Women is here, and it’s pretty much everything that any fan of Louisa May Alcott’s classic novel could ask for.

This clip shows us our first look at all four March girls – played by Maya Hawke (Jo), Willa Fitzgerald (Beth), Annes Elwy (Meg) and Kathryn Newton (Amy) – as well as footage of Emily Watson as Marmee and Dame Angela Lansbury as the cantankerous Aunt March.

There are less than two months to go until the premiere of Victoria Season 2 on Masterpiece. This is great news in and of itself, obviously. But it also means that the floodgates of promotion are officially open. (This is a good thing, by the way.)

With only a few short weeks to go until Season 2 begins, prepare yourselves to see all kinds of trailers, promotional clips, behind-the-scenes photos and cast interviews start popping up all over. It’s the most wonderful time of the year, and a real balm to the spirits of US fans who had to watch our UK friends get all the goodies a couple months ago. Get ready to rejoice.

The Return of ‘The Great British Baking Show’ Is Just Around the Corner!

Get ready, America - another season of The Great British Baking Show is almost here. Yes, our favorite gentle, civilized, oh-so-British culinary reality show is back! If you’re anything like me, you too have been missing the bakers’ tent, Mel and Sue’s puns, and mentions of the dreaded “soggy bottom”.

So what do you need to know about season four of The Great British Baking Show?  I’m happy you asked. Below I will attempt to answer your burning (but not overbaked) questions.

Good news: The countdown to a new season of Poldark is officially on!

Bad news: We’re not going to see it until October here. Which, we’re Americans who love British TV, we’re pretty used to waiting. Heck, we’re pretty good at it, at this point. (We’ve even got a long list of things you can watch in the meantime while you’re waiting for more Poldark, should you need suggestions.) But doesn’t mean it’s not rough. The only real bright side is that at least we will probably get double the amount of promotional material to look at while we wait. Like this new trailer for Season 3.
