Sir Kenneth Branagh and Dame Judi Dench board the Orient Express for Agatha Christie’s whodunnit

As most P1’s of Tellyspotting are well aware, I’m not a huge fan of remakes. I’m all on board with prequels. Remakes, not so much. That said, the forthcoming November release of Kenneth Branagh’s ‘remake’ of Agatha Christie’s Murder on the Orient Express may go a long way to alter my future close-mindedness. Sir Kenneth will not only co-produce and […]

What’s next for Benedict Cumberbatch? Playboy Patrick Melrose in Edward St Aubyn’s “Melrose”, of course.

If you’ve ever really wondered why it takes so much time between Sherlock series, one only has to look at the ever-expanding day planner that charts series star Benedict Cumberbatch’s daily life activities. While both Doctor Strange and The Hollow Crown were technically prior to the Sherlock S4 premiere in January 2017, since that time, he has spent his time filming The Current War where […]

Savor Sunday night as ‘Sherlock’ S5 may be a ways off

Jimmy Fallon’s Mad Lib Theater with Benedict Cumberbatch

It’s official. There is nothing Benedict Cumberbatch cannot do. After seeing the star of Sherlock and Doctor Strange this past week on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, I am convinced that the party word game, Mad Libs, was invented in 1953 by Leonard Stern and Roger Price with Benedict Cumberbatch in mind. Days ahead of his Saturday Night Live hosting gig last night, the Sherlock star […]

Doctor Strange/Sherlock/Smaug/Khan to host SNL on November 5

I can remember a time when Saturday Night Live was so good, you didn’t go out until it ended. Those were the days of Gilda Radner, Jane Curtin, Dan Aykroyd, Chevy Chase, Bill Murray, John Belushi, Laraine Newman and Garrett Morris. Fast forward to the 90s and the days of Mike Myers, Dana Carvey, Chris Farley and […]
