Monarch of the Glen (2000) - News Poster



Whatever Happened to the Cast of “Monarch of the Glen?”

If you want the long and short of what Monarch of the Glen was all about it was really the story of a man that was called back home to Scotland in order to take over his father’s estate and restore it to its former glory. However the task is daunting enough that he has to make a hard choice between returning to London where he’s been making his own way or stay on the estate and try to sort out its many debts and therefore keep it in the family and keep it up as much as possible.

American Gods cast interview: Ian McShane, Ricky Whittle, Emily Browning

Louisa Mellor May 3, 2017

We chatted to the stars of American Gods, Ricky Whittle, Emily Browning and Ian McShane...

As a crowded room (cameras, lights, at least half a dozen PRs) is being set up for the next interview at February’s American Gods press junket, Ricky Whittle is being berated by co-star Emily Browning. His crime? Not having watched The Wire in its entirety.

“What is wrong with you?” demands Browning.

“I only made it through three seasons,” Whittle shrugs, “I just got bored.”

“How could you stop watching?” she persists, outraged.

“I just got bored…” he repeats, his answer interrupted by the unmistakable voice of Ian McShane crossing the room. McShane takes his seat and nods towards Whittle. “He hasn’t even seen Deadwood”.

“I will watch Deadwood!” insists Whittle, hanging his head and laughing.

Top 20 New Year TV episodes

Wesley Mead Jan 2, 2017

As the New Year arrives, we salute a few favourite TV episodes depicting this momentous time of year...

New Year is a time for reflection on the past and resolution for the future, an opportunity to consider what you’ve achieved and what you’re yet to work on. It’s also a time to stay up well past midnight, partying the night away with friends and family, potentially embarrassing yourself in the process. That dichotomy ensures that the New Year is fertile ground for television, and the finest comedies and dramatic series use the moment to allow for contemplation amidst the alcoholic excesses. Here are twenty New Year episodes that offer an entertaining take on the aeons-old celebration - from emotional character pieces to geeky genre takes and old-fashioned barrages of seasonal comedy.

E L James' husband, Niall Leonard, to pen Fifty Shades Darker

Niall Leonard will be writing the screenplay to Fifty Shades Of Grey follow-up, Fifty Shades Darker...

With over a half a billion dollars banked from this year's Fifty Shades Of Grey movie, it's surprising that it's taken Universal Pictures so long to get moving on the second book of E L James' trilogy, Fifty Shades Darker. But, as you probably know, things haven't really been too straightforward.

Director Sam Taylor-Johnson, who was signed up to direct the entire trilogy of Fifty Shades films, quit the sequel. It had been little secret that she and E L James didn't exactly see eye to eye, and given that James has creative sign-off over the movies, it was a fight that ultimately only one person could win.

Also not returning is screenwriter Kelly Marcel. And the report had been that James herself was to have a go at penning the script for Fifty Shades Darker.

"Fifty Shades" Sequel Gets Hubbie Scribe

"Fifty Shades of Grey" author E.L. James has enlisted her husband Niall Leonard to pen the script for "Fifty Shades Darker," the upcoming film adaptation of the second book in her 'Fifty Shades' novel trilogy.

Leonard is an author who has also worked on numerous British TV productions including acclaimed shows like "Wire in the Blood," "Monarch of the Glen" and "Hornblower".

Leonard worked on the script for the first 'Fifty Shades' film but was not credited. In a statement, producer Michael De Luca says: "Niall is an outstanding writer in his own right, with multiple established credits, and we are lucky to have him join Team Fifty."

Neither the first film's director Sam Taylor-Johnson or screenwriter Kelly Marcel are returning for the sequel. Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan are attached to reprise their roles in the film which has yet to set a production start date.

Fifty Shades Darker Finds Its Screenwriter

Fifty Shades Darker Finds Its Screenwriter
While the search continues for a new author-approved director to replace the recently-exited Sam Taylor-Johnson, Fifty Shades Darker now at least has a screenwriter. The sequel to Fifty Shades Of Grey will be adapted from E.L. James's novel by Niall Leonard.This will have gone down well with James, because Leonard is her husband. It should mean, if you will, that screenwriter and author stay on the same page, avoiding the 'creative differences' that dogged the first movie.Leonard doesn't yet have any other big screen or Hollywood credits to his name, but does have a long background in British TV. He wrote episodes of Wire In The Blood, Wild At Heart, Monarch Of The Glen and Hornblower, among many others (there's a smutty Hornblower / Fifty Shades joke here somewhere, but we'll leave you to make it yourselves). He also directed episodes of The Bill.It's further evidence of

El James turns to her husband Niall Leonard to write the 50 Shades of Grey sequel

El James turns to her husband Niall Leonard to write the 50 Shades of Grey sequel
El James has turned to her husband Niall Leonard to write the Fifty Shades of Grey screenplay sequel.

Leonard replacing Fifty Shades of Grey screenwriter Kelly Marcel for the project is another major shake-up for the mega franchise, as director Sam Taylor-Johnson won't be back either.

Leonard is an established television writer, having worked on the acclaimed series Monarch of the Glen, Wire in the Blood and Wild at Heart.

A creative change of some kind was expected for the upcoming sequel, given that James acknowledged clashing with director Taylor-Johnson in an interview with Digital Spy.

"It was hard in places," the author-producer told us.

"But any creative process they're going to have disagreements between all sorts of people but we got there in the end and I think the fans will be really pleased."

An adaptation of James's erotic novel Fifty Shades Darker is set for a 2016 release.

Thank God: BBC's Series Will Remain on Netflix

Well this is a huge relief: the BBC and Netflix have hugged it out and the British series threatening to leave the streaming service at the end of the month (among them: "Top Gear," "Luther," the original "House of Cards" and, critically, "Doctor Who" and its spin-off "Torchwood") are secure. As The Best of Netflix points out, "these types of last minute deals are often very common." The site theorizes that the shows will be around at least for "the next several months," although points out that most of these contract re-ups last for a year or more.

We have actually just started making our way through the vast and complicated "Doctor Who"-niverse and are somewhere in the David Tennant years, so we would have to do a lot of cramming in order to make it through before Netflix pulled the plug. And we haven't even gotten into "Torchwood" yet!

Bryan Fuller Talks ‘American Gods’; Expects Series to Air in 2016

Starz has a new hit TV series on its hands, with the fantasy novel series adaptation Outlander; the network aims to replicate that success when it brings the world of Neil Gaiman’s American Gods from the page to small screen. Gaiman’s work of modern Americana fantasy is a best-seller that’s won multiple prestigious awards (including the Hugo and Nebula); it also has a sequel novel in development by the author and shares characters in common with Gaiman’s Anansi Boys novel and the novella “Monarch of the Glen” (which revolves around the protagonist of American Gods, Shadow).

That is to say, there’s a reasonable amount of source material – and critically-acclaimed source material at that – for American Gods ...

No Blarney: Here Are Ten Of Our Favorite Irish Hunks

A few years back we posted a list of some of our favorite Irish actors for St. Patrick’s Day, and it contained pretty much who you’d expect – Liam, Pierce, Colin F., Cillian, Daniel D.L. , Jonathan R.M., an Aidan (Quinn), but enough time has has passed that we have a whole new bumper crop to celebrate. Including another Aidan!

Here are ten more actors we can share our Shamrock Shakes with, and can smile those Irish eyes at us anytime.

Jamie Dornan

31-year-old Jamie grew up in the suburbs of Belfast, Northern Ireland, and is the second cousin (twice removed) of Greer Garson. Along with a very successful modeling career, he’s flourishing on the big and small screen, with roles on Once Upon A Time, The Fall and he’s currently filming one of the most hotly anticipated spectacles of next year, Fifty Shades Of Grey.

Borgen recap: season three, episodes three and four

Both the newsroom and the New Democrats deal with image management, before the second episode takes us on a piggy detour

Spoiler Alert: This is for people watching Borgen at BBC4 pace. Don't read on if you haven't seen episodes three and four of the third season – and if you've seen further ahead, please do not post spoilers.

Catch up with Vicky Frost's episodes one and two blog

The Right Shade of Brown; Their Loss …

There are occasions when even the most ardent Borgen fan might wonder at their viewing choices. And I admit that during this week's rather undeveloped exploration of Danish pig farming, I began to question the extent of Birgitte Nyborg's charm. (And indeed whether somebody at Dr wasn't having a bit of a giggle: "What is the most stereotypical thing we could build this hour of internationally loved Danish drama around?" "Ah yes, bacon.")

Exclusive: UK Quad Poster for Day of the Flowers

  • HeyUGuys
BAFTA-winning director John Roberts (Paulie, Say Good-bye) returns behind the camera for his first feature in over a decade with Day of the Flowers, a comedy-drama telling the tale of two strong-willed Scottish sisters.

The film is heading into cinemas at the end of the month on our shores, and we’ve got the new UK quad poster to exclusively share with you before it touches down.

Two young, strong-willed Scottish sisters, one a left-wing activist, the other a born-to-shop fashionista, take their late father’s ashes to Cuba, the site of many intriguing family legends. Arriving in Havana, the two women promptly lose the ashes and go through a series of misadventures – both romantic and dangerous – to try to retrieve them, making some surprising discoveries along the way about the family ties that hold them together. Drenched in sunlight and with a fabulous Cuban soundtrack, Day Of The Flowers

Why Britain loves Borgen: powerful women and politics with a human face

The hit Danish drama returns to British TV and Birgitte Nyborg is out to prove she is still a political force

She now wears killer heels, designer suits, has a sexy British lover, and so much money from making speeches to business conferences and sitting on global company boards that home has become a massive apartment on Copenhagen's waterfront.

The third series of Borgen – the political drama that has been fascinating audiences in 70 countries, including the UK, and is credited by a Copenhagen Business School study with stimulating debate and combating Danish voter apathy – starts on Saturday.

It features a very different Birgitte Nyborg (Sidse Babett Knudsen). Think Tony Blair. She is enjoying all the trappings due a successful, celebrated ex- prime minister after losing a general election two and a half years previously at the end of Borgen 2.

But it does not take her long to decide that the
