A City Of Tiny Lights Trailer


Tommy Akhtar (Riz Ahmed) is an experienced private detective living in London, whose past comes rushing back with the return of his long-lost girlfriend Shelley (Billie Piper). But that's the least of his troubles. He's called in by an escort named Melody (Cush Jumbo) following the disappearance of her Russian flatmate after the latter had left for an appointment with a client. She's willing to pay whatever cost Tommy has in mind to get her friend back, a friend who was last seen in CCTV footage arriving at a hotel in Paddington. So where better to start looking? He also enlists the help of an unlikely friend to go undercover. However, it soon becomes clear that this is a lot bigger than he first thought; he's being threatened by suits as he gets closer to uncovering the dark underworld of London's social politics. There's a disturbing religious undertone to this case, which leads Tommy unwittingly into a world of violence and terrorism.

Chris Evans Says Marriage "Doesn't Work", Finds It "Weird"


Chris Evans Billie Piper Carol McGiffin

British TV presenter Chris Evans has declared that the concept of marriage “doesn’t work” and is outdated.

The 49 year old star and future presenter of ‘Top Gear’ visited a marriage counsellor and a sex therapist for the purposes of researching his new book ‘Call the Midlife’, and confessed that after having done so, it caused him to look at his own life and predict any marital issues that might lie ahead.

Evans has been married three times, and is currently happily wed to 35 year old Natasha Shishmanian, but reckons that the institution itself doesn’t apply to the 21st century and is a betrayal of human instincts.

Showtime's "Penny Dreadful" Isn't That Dreadful At All


Eva Green Josh Hartnett Billie Piper Timothy Dalton

Whenever a show or movie tries to make a show out of a mix of gothic literary characters, it usually ends up, rather aptly, a Frankenstein monster of a story – hammy at best, clumsy and unwatchable at worst. But Showtime has been on the ball with it’s sex-and-violence dramas of late, and they’re setting up a pretty compelling story with their new show, Penny Dreadful.

Eva Green
Eva Green is creepily brilliant as a paranormal expert in the first episode.

So far several familiar faces have made direct or indirect appearances – Victor Frankenstein, Dorian Gray, Mina Harker (nee Murray, of Dracula fame), Jack the Ripper and so on. Then there are the new faces, like Eva Greene’s endlessly enjoyable (and possibly sociopathic) Vanessa Ives, who appears to be the partner of Timothy Dalton’s Sir Malcolm Murray. And she’s about as awesomely creepy as it gets.
