It’s a busy time of year, for lots of different reasons. Not only are we preparing our end of year lists, but things are gearing up for 2017’s new releases.

Now, thanks to our eagle-eyed contributor Charlotte, we know that it has started filming. Continue reading

I did promise two Hans Rosenfeldt-related stories today, except this one took longer to produce because today turned into a busy old day. Earlier there was a story that detailed Rosenfeldt confirming a second series of ITV’s Marcella (read that here), and during the past few days the Swedish showrunner has also been speaking about series four of The Bridge, mere days after broadcaster STV had confirmed a fourth run. What he said makes for interesting reading. Continue reading

So today, while also promoting Marcella again (this time for its DVD release), Rosenfeldt was at it again. Continue reading
