‘The Little Drummer Girl’: Watch a Dangerous Plan Come Together in AMC Series

Sometimes, the mark of a good spy story is what gets said without any words at all. Such is the case for the new AMC limited series “The Little Drummer Girl.”

From director Park Chan-wook and based on a novel from legendary genre master John le Carré, the six-part series follows a 1970s London actress named Charlie (Florence Pugh) who gets dragged into an international espionage project by a handsome, shadowy figure named “Peter” (Alexander Skarsgård).

In an exclusive clip below, you can catch a glimpse of the danger that both Charlie and Peter face as they carry out their specific mission. It’s the kind of meticulous, ratcheted-up tension, done in a way only Park Chan-wook can. It may not have the technicolor wardrobe that blankets so many of the scenes in the series, but it still has that unmistakable atmosphere that only the ’70s can offer up. Toss

Gem Wheeler Jan 10, 2017

To mark 30 years of Inspector Morse on television, here are 10 of his most complex, macabre and memorable cases...

Warning: contains spoilers.

Beer, Wagner, a red Jaguar, and Barrington Pheloung’s haunting theme. Those images conjure up one of the most memorable characters in British television. Inspector Morse’s final episode aired in the UK over fifteen years ago, yet the impression left by the hugely popular drama remains indelible. Its popular spinoff, Lewis, finished only two years ago after nine successful series, while a prequel, Endeavour, has just started to air its fourth run. The appeal of Morse and his Oxford is clearly as strong as ever.

Ascension: A Tom Hooper Profile (Part 1)

Following his Academy Award nomination for Best Director on The King's Speech, Trevor Hogg profiles the career of British filmmaker Tom Hooper in the first of a two-part feature...

“I fell in love with directing at the age of twelve, at prep school in Highgate,” stated British filmmaker Tom Hooper who as a student came across the book How to Make Film and Television. His career ambitions were fueled further when an uncle gave the London native a cast-off clockwork 16mm Bolex camera which allowed him to make his debut effort, a short film called Runaway Dog. Later, during the year between Westminster and Oxford University, Hooper produced a fifteen minute project about a painting that terrorizes its creator (Philip Rosch). Costing $16,000, Painted Faces (1992) was broadcast on Channel 4’s First Frame and received extra financial support from commercial director Paul Weiland which allowed it to be screened at the 35th London Film Festival.

PBS' 'Masterpiece Mystery': Inspector Lewis returns

If you missed last week's premiere of the new batch of "Inspector Lewis" episodes on PBS' "Masterpiece Mystery," you weren't alone. Pledge drives pre-empted "Counter Culture Blues" in some markets, including Chicago.

But while you still have time to catch that episode online (PBS.org), don't miss Sunday's second episode, "The Dead of Winter" (9 p.m. Eastern, Sept. 5, but check your local listings).

The "Lewis" franchise is an extension of the popular "Inspector Morse" series, after the death of both the character Morse and the actor who played him, John Thaw. Thames Valley (UK) Police Inspector Robert Lewis (Kevin Whately) is out from under the shadow of the legendary Morse and has his own No. 2, the enigmatic Sgt. James Hathaway (Laurence Fox).

In "The Dead of Winter," we learn a little of Hathaway's past when he and Lewis are dispatched to an Oxford country estate that may have been the scene of a murder.
