Luther to return (and Sherlock too)

I've not found much detail but apparently the BBC's Luther will return in 2011 for "two hour-long specials". One would hope that Ruth Wilson will be returning as Alice Morgan. Note the use of the word "specials" as they can't very well call it a series with just two episodes.

Still, it's welcome news even if it's only two episodes.

Sherlock will also be returning for three more episodes.

Sherlock is also out on DVD. I'm tempted to buy it as it includes an un-broadcast pilot episode that according to the IMDb Zoe telford is in, whereas in the broadcast series she was introduced in the second episode and only makes a fleeting appearance in the third.

Imogen Poots in Centurion

It's been a while since I updated the blog thing so I'll try to do some updates.

I rented Centurion a week or two ago on DVD. While not an amazing movie I thought it was not bad at all and I can see myself eventually buying it in the future. The movie tells the story of a handful of Roman soldiers who survived a massacre at the hands of Picts led by Olga Kurylenko (of Quantum of solace).

Imogen Poots popped up in the second half of the movie as an outcast Pict lady who helps the Romans. I was quite impressed by her and will be watching out for her future projects.

As an interesting aside the main Roman character was played by Michael Fassbender who is playing Rochester in the upcoming movie of Jane Eyre. Imogen Poots is playing Blanche Ingram in the same movie.

Imogen also appeared in 28 Weeks Later and the new TV remake of A Bouquet of Barbed Wire. She's also being connected to the new Spider-Man movie.

Here's an article from the Daily Mail website about her:

That nice Zoe Telford

So I was watching episode 2 of Sherlock last Sunday, the first episode of which I had enjoyed very much.

The second episode is ok, I thought, but it's no episode 1. However the nice lady doctor that Tim from The Office trys to get off with, played by Zoe Telford, did catch my eye.

I had to go and do the ususal hunt on the IMDB after the episode to see what else she has been in. It's a wonder I've don't remember seeing her in anything because she's been in Ashes to Ashes, Foyle's War, Collision, Law and Order UK, Afterlife, Teachers, The Palace and Criminal Justice to name just a few of her TV credits.

She was also in a thing called The Last Train that was on back in 1999. I remember watching that but I'm not sure I remember her character.

Oh, and she played Eva Braun opposite Robert Carlyle's Hitler!
