The final scene of the final episode is great and we wouldn't want to continue. We'll go out big and leave it at that. I really do want to make Luther into a film. I think that's where the ultimate Luther story will unfold—the big silver screen. Personally, I think it's great to that Luther will be moving to the big screen, as the series is already very cinematic.
A part of me feels sad Cross won't be making more gritty UK shows in the foreseeable future. To wit, I still don't understand how vampires could successfully take over the world—because, unlike Syfy's US remake, Being Human's vampires don't even have super-strength. They're just bloodthirsty people with fangs and unfortunate weaknesses unable to enter residences uninvited, are susceptible to explosions and wooden stakes. It's hard to see how Being Human's bloodsuckers could ever enslave humanity, so I've all along found it hard to care about such a silly, illogical element of the show this year.
The vampiric "Old Ones" featured heavily in this finale; or, more accurately, their ashen leader Mr Snow Mark Gatiss received a sizable amount of screentime. Gatiss's chilly performance was fun to watch, even if the character was a clunking stereotype, and he clearly relished wrapping his tongue around the script's melodramatic lines and literary quotes "by the pricking of my thumbs, something wicked this way comes".
Snow was such a pantomime villain I'm surprised there were no sing-songs between his scenes—some of which felt amalgamated from movies like Schindler's List and Inglourious Basterds motivation for the scene a red-coated Zoe fled from Snow, her father's killer? Still, for every eye-rolling moment, there was some first-class material with Snow—particularly his dialogue to erstwhile companion Hal Damien Molony about his half-century of abstinence from blood: The biggest disappointment with "The War Child" was how Cutler's Andrew Gower Machiavellian plot to earn the adoration of his vampire masters, by ushering in an age where werewolf-fearing humans seek out vampire protection to their great costsimply crumbled into irrelevance.
The conclusion of the prophecy wasn't too bad, although I daren't pick it apart too much. The twist that baby Eve's survival is what ensures the vampires are victorious was fun, mainly because the story consequently showed real courage by having Annie kill herself and Eve by detonating Tom's Michael Socha explosives—thus also incinerating the Old Ones and ensuring the future dystopia never comes to pass. Plus this moment finally saw Annie make her literal exit through a flaming door to the afterlife, which has been long-overdue for Being Human's most problematic and wearisome character.
The suggestion that feisty Scottish lassie Alex Kate Bracken will be Annie's replacement fills me with delight, although the writers still have to contend with the same issues of making an ethereal character interesting. Hal and Tom kind of got lost in the episode, because there wasn't really much for them to do, but their final moment together gave series 4 a sense of completion; with Tom helping the relapsed Hal because "you're me best mate".
A large part of series 4 have been about getting "odd couple" Hal and Tom together as best-friends, like their predecessors Mitchell and George, so it appears to be mission accomplished in preparation for next year.
So, looking ahead, series 5 will seemingly involve mysterious civil servant "Mr Rook" Steven Robertsonwho appears to be a Man In Black-style fixer who ensures the general public never learn about supernatural creatures. Plus there's the aforementioned likelihood Alex will replacing Annie, and I certainly hope geeky Allison returns as Tom's werewolf girlfriend.
Considering how this series had to deal with the loss of so many original characters, ending its own run with an entirely new lineup, I can't deny Toby Whithouse did an impressive job under difficult circumstances. I've just been less enthusiastic about the ongoing mythology this year, which felt too half-baked to me, and never came together brilliantly enough to make me reconsider that opinion.
Asides I'm sorry, but why did Alex giggle over "she took me into her corridor"? That's not even a good euphemism and perhaps so inappropriate it just felt strange to include it. It's about time ghosts realised they're unstoppable, really, during the scene where Annie and Alex assaulted the Old Ones' hideout and batted away vampires like flies. Shame Annie didn't realise this in the premiere, where it would have been helpful if she'd rescued baby Eve without sitting back and letting George march off to his doom with Tom.
As a very early teaser, the BBC also released this image that suggests the awakening or return of a villain. Doctor Who, series 7 teaser Today is not only my 33rd birthday, but it's the seven-year anniversary of the day Doctor Who returned to our screens with "Rose". As a birthday present to me um, right? I'm sure you've seen this already today, but what do you think?
The teaser is almost exclusively created using footage from the Wild West episode the BBC have shot in Spain, but it's a nice way to wet out appetites. Isn't it slightly too early to be trailing Doctor Who, though?
'George Clooney is helping me make a little bit of history' - Daily Record
The show probably won't return until late-autumn, so we have many months to wait. Oh well, I guess it keeps the show in the public consciousness, which the BBC has always been the masters at. Any thoughts on the trailer? Continues nightly until Friday. Continues nightly until Thursday. Stars Kayvan Novak as a variety of comic characters. Presented by Pips Taylor.
Presented by Len Goodman. Both had reason to draw a huge amount of interest.
The Voice was developed off the back of the success the US version had last summer where ratings bested what X Factor USA achieved in the autumnand has freshness on its side because it's a brand new show. There are judges nay coaches we haven't met yet, too, in the impressive line-up of Will. But, more importantly, it has a signature gimmick that does away with the X Factor's nastier side Auditions are done with the coaches blind to who's performing, as their chairs are turned away from the stage.
So "it's all about the voice", as the slogan says.Gulf Lotus X12 - MEMTS 2012 Full HD!!!
This means there should be fewer people getting through on physical attractiveness alone. It also means there's practically no chance of X Factor-style "novelties" like Jedward or Wagner getting beyond a first appearance, especially as the BBC are against allowing "crazies" onto the show, because they've chosen to avoid auditioning the kind of person you'd avoid eye contact with on public transport.
Naturally, X Factor is still able to find major world stars this is the week where third-place One Direction had a No1 album in the USbut overall the X Factor has become a place for viewers to point and laugh at deranged people. There was a time last year where the UK was more interested in Kelly Rowland and Tulisa's off-screen tiff than any of the actual contestants on the show; while the antics of Frankie Cocozza off-stage snorting drugs, bedding girls overshadowed whatever song he was attempting to sing every week.
The Voice doesn't seem to have any patience for that kind of tabloid-courting nonsense. There was a more pleasing, upbeat vibe to it. The coaches get along and had good-natured banter, rather than petty squabbles. Only occasionally did their ego's overshadow the contestants; most notably when Tom Jones couldn't resist a suspicious Elvis anecdote he didn't have a guitar in the house?
It also helps that the coaches on The Voice are talented performers themselves. They even sang together as a "super-group" to kick-off the show, although it's debatable if this unlikely collaboration worked. Still, individually, you can't argue with their credentials and success.
