A season 1 and 2 box set of Braodchurch is released in France today.

Saison 1
Broadchurch, paisible village anglais de bord de mer, se retrouve soudain sous les projecteurs des médias après la mort d'un petit garçon, Dany Latimer. Deux enquêteurs (pas si) mal assortis, Ellie Miller et Alex Hardy, sont chargés de résoudre cette affaire délicate, tout en essayant de garder la presse à distance et de préserver le tourisme. Face à un tel drame, les habitants commencent à s'épier les uns les autres, faisant remonter à la surface bien des secrets...

Saison 2
Le procès de Joe Miller, désigné coupable du meurtre du petit Danny Latimer va débuter. Tous les habitants de la petite ville de Broadchurch se retrouvent au palais de justice : l'inspecteur Alec Hardy, toujours mal en point, Ellie Miller, anéantie par le crime de son époux, désormais flic à la circulation, la famille Latimer, où l'arrivée prochaine d'un bébé cache mal les tensions, le révérant Paul Coates, qui tente …

The art work for the BBC Radio 4 audio book Dixon Of Dock Green starring David Tennant has been released.

David stars as PC Andy Crawford in the radio adaptation of BBC TV’s classic police series Dixon Of Dock Green, out on audiobook in December. 

Dixon Of Dock Green, the TV series, ran for around 20 years from the 1950s - 70s and starred Jack Warner in the iconic role of PC George Dixon. In 2005 the series was revived for BBC Radio, adapted by Sue Rodwell from the original scripts by Ted Willis and produced by Viv Beeby. David Calder took on the role of George Dixon with David Tennant joining up as his young sidekick Crawford. Charlie Brooks of Eastenders fame played Mary, Dixon's daughter and Andy's love interest. Dixon Of Dock Green ran for two series of six episodes each on BBC Radio 4. However, David Tennant starred in the first series only as his commitment to Doctor Who made it impossible for him to continue and Hamish Clark replaced him as Crawford.

REVIEW: 96 Ways To Say I Love You

Image
Last weekend saw the US premiere of the Daisy Aitkens short, 96 Ways To Say I Love You, at the Downtown Film Festival in LA and the 11 minute film is packed with laughs and was warmly received by the audience at the Regent Theater.

The action centers around Olive and Al, a couple played by Georgia Moffett (who also produces the film) and Joel Fry with perfect comic timing, as they attempt  to say 'I love you' for the first time. As they build up to saying the all important three little words they turn to friends, played by an excellent little supporting cast, for advice. As well as laughs you can feel yourself squirm with embarrassment along with them as they suffer the sometimes awkward moments that happen in relationships. Georgia Moffett is on fine form and you can see that she is perfectly suited to comedy roles. Joel Fry is of course well known for his comedic skills and the ex White Van Man co stars complement each other perfectly as a very believable couple.

NEW ON RADIO: David Tennant Stars In The Antiquary On BBC Radio 4 On 9th August

Image
The second episode of series three of BBC Radio 4's The Great Scott is revealed as The Antiquary, based on the 1816 novel by Sir Walter Scott. David Tennant stars as Scott in the dramatised adaptations of some of the classic Scottish writer's finest works, part of BBC Radio's Drama strand. The new radio adaptation also reunites David with comic actor Richard Wilson in whose award-winning radio sitcom Believe It! he is a regular guest star.

The novel is about an amateur historian and collector of items of dubious antiquity. He also provides the focal point around which the other characters undergo their personal journeys and change, often providing a sardonic commentary. This is Scott's gothic novel, redolent with family secrets, stories of hidden treasure and hopeless love, with a mysterious, handsome, young man, benighted aristocracy and a night-time funeral procession to a ruined abbey. The romance and mystery is counterpoised by some of Scott's more down-to-earth…
