@Variety Is it called 'Small Beer'?
Three special episodes of the cult BBC Two comedy will be broadcast in autumn 2017.
Hello Daaave! Fans of the BBC’s disturbing cult phenomenon ‘The League of Gentlemen’ were thrilled today to learn that the pitch-black comedy series will be returning for three special episodes later this year.
The BBC announced on Wednesday (August 23rd) that the show’s creators, Mark Gatiss, Steve Pemberton, Reece Shearsmith and Jeremy Dyson are teaming up to resurrect the bizarre world of Royston Vasey and its creepy but compelling inhabitants.
The three special episodes for BBC Two have been commissioned to mark the 20th anniversary of the first broadcast of ‘The League of Gentlemen’ on radio way back in 1997.
We just can't wait until winter for 'Twice Upon A Time'.
The trailer for the forthcoming 'Doctor Who' Christmas special has arrived, and it's times like this that make us yearn for December. We already know that we'll get to meet Jodie Whittaker for the first time, but what final adventure is in store for Peter Capaldi's Doctor?
Continuing on from season 10 episode 12, 'The Doctor Falls', we see the Doctor on an adventure with the first ever incarnation of himself in 'Twice Upon A Time'. Obviously, William Hartnell is no longer around to be in any more series, but David Bradley has turned out to be quite a convincing replacement.

The show may not be making a return in the near future.
Hitting the TV back in 2010, BBC series 'Sherlock' has been incredibly successful on the channel, picking up legions of loyal fans across four seasons, totalling just 13 episodes. It's hard to believe the show has been around for so long when you look at the small amount of screen time the characters have actually had, but feature-length episodes more than made up for the series' absence on screen the majority of the time.

With Benedict Cumberbatch leading the way in the titular role, the show also stars Martin Freeman and series co-creator, Mark Gatiss. Now, Gatiss has been talking about why he thinks the end of his version of 'Sherlock' may already have happened.

Though he's not joining the series as heavily rumoured in the past, he doesn't mind talking about the sci-fi show.
As one of the most popular television properties in the world, the expectation for 'Doctor Who' continues to rise with each and every season that comes to the small screen. Currently headed by showrunner Steven Moffat and actor Peter Capaldi, the show is enjoyed a tenth series, which will also serve to be both Moffat and Capaldi's last. Following its conclusion, 'Broadchurch' creator Chris Chibnall will take over from Moffat, whilst the next Doctor is still to be announced.
Mark Gatiss thinks working on 'Doctor Who' would be very tough
Before Chibnall was revealed to be the new showrunner however, there were plenty of rumours as to who would succeed Moffat. One of the people mentioned most frequently was Mark Gatiss, but now the writer has been opening up about the show and how badly it can affect those who get in deep.

The actor wasn’t deemed sexy enough by show bosses.
Speaking to The Sunday People, Gatiss said Cumberbatch was originally thought of as “a sort of ginger weird person” and not sexy enough for the role.

The first 'Sherlock' episode to be set in Victorian London.
By now, fans are used to being drip fed episodes of 'Sherlock' - what more can you expect with two award-winning Hollywood actors in the lead roles? - but ever since Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss revealed the Victorian theme of the next Christmas special, fans have been gasping with thirst.
Now, the official title has been announced! Alongside a launch date (alas, AFTER Christmas). And yet, we're still rather in the dark about what to expect. Here's what we know so far:

The upcoming re-boot is set to hit theatres in February 2016.
If you weren't getting giddy with excitement for the big screen adaptation of 'Dad's Army' next year, you certainly will be now. The new trailer has arrived and we challenge you to keep the smile off your face. Euphemisms, slapstick humour and ridiculous costumes galore, this upcoming movie truly is the best of British comedy.
Catherine Zeta-Jones is the epitome of World War II beauty
Based on Jimmy Perry's enormously popular war comedy series of the same name which ran from 1968 to 1977 and starred Arthur Lowe, Ian Lavender and Arnold Ridley among others, the movie features re-imaginings of all your favourite characters, plus a few new personalities. The likes of bumbling Captain Mainwaring (Toby Jones), mild-mannered Private Godfrey (Michael Gambon) and simple-minded Private Pike (Blake Harrison) will be joined by a stunning and charming journalist named Rose Winters (Catherine Zeta-Jones), and the poshest officer the military has to offer Colonel Theakes (Mark Gatiss).
Everybody's favourite British regiment is back in the new version of Dad's Army. Director Oliver Parker has recruited the much loved classic British TV Show with the help of some of the UK's best known actors. Like the TV show, the movie is set in 1944 and World War II is almost at its peak. The Home Guard is patrolling the streets of Walmington-on-Sea and their spirits are rather dampened by the thought of the imminent invasion. Their only light relief comes from a visit from a beautiful journalist going by the name of Rose Winters. Rose soon has all the men on their best behaviour and all the ladies of the town attempting to up their game. However it's soon 'back to work' for the men when they find out there's a spy living amidst the residents in their small seaside town.

When he was offered the lead role in the runaway hit series 'Sherlock', the actor was initially minded to say no.
It’s the role that turned him into an international phenomenon, but Benedict Cumberbatch has revealed that he initially came close to turning down ‘Sherlock’.
The English actor, who is currently juggling new fatherhood with playing the lead in ‘Hamlet’, admitted in an interview with CNN’s ‘Talk Asia’ news program on Friday (September 4th) that he had quite a few reservations about accepting the role of the ingenious detective because of the massive fame he thought the “populist role” would bring. He certainly turned out to be correct in that assumption!

Igor Strausman is the less thought about assistant of the insane but brilliant Victor Frankenstein. He's as genius as the passionate medical student he aids in experiments, but more rational when it comes to ethics. He does, however, share Frankenstein's obsession with eternal life and becomes equally as excited when they manage to bring a dead animal back to life. This in itself marks a unique scientific advancement, but Frankenstein's morbid curiosity fails to stop there. He wants to be able to create human life, but doing this involves sourcing body parts from mortuaries - and any other place they can find. Igor's timid nature, though deeply involved passion for the project, keeps him from doing his best to dissuade Frankenstein from completing their 'monster', until it's too late. Now they have a rogue beast on their hands, not to mention the police who are out for blood.
