Look out for next week. It’s when some big, new series start. None more so than the Williams brothers’ new four-part whodunit, One Of Us. The brothers are one of the hottest properties in TV at the moment thanks to last year’s The Missing, and with a new series of that starting this autumn, it’s going to be busy for them. One Of Us tells the story of two families, who are rocked when they learn that their children – who have recently married – have been murdered. When the murderer turns up on their doorstep on the same day as the murder, they have to ask themselves what they should do next. There’s an interview with Harry and Jack we managed to get hold of after the jump… (we’ll be posting up an interview a day in between now and next Tuesday).
According to showrunner Hans Rosenfeldt a fourth instalment of The Bridge is a done deal, and has been quite vocal about that fact for the past few months. He’s even gone so far to say that the first scenes will be the most harrowing yet in the show’s history. And that’s saying something. Despite Rosenfeldt’s proclamations, there hasn’t been any official word from SVT, The Bridge’s home broadcaster, in terms of a proper confirmation. Until now.
A little while ago, I put up a news story saying that Sky Atlantic’s latest HBO series – The Night Of, based on the BBC’s Criminal Justice – would be coming soon to the British digital TV network. Well, that has now been confirmed and that it would be premiering online first, in a Netflix-style boxset binge opportunity. Which sounds like a gameshow from the 1980s.
Peter Robinson’s DCI Banks books are hugely popular, and the TV series has been a really solid presence on our screen for a long time now. It’s good, solid fare with likeable characters and likeable actors. Now it’s back for a fifth series, and ITV has confirmed the transmission date.
