The ‘Game Of Thrones’ star will play Robert Catesby, who devised the 1605 plot.
‘Game Of Thrones‘ star Kit Harington has been cast in a new three-part historical drama from the BBC titled ‘Gunpowder’.
The actor will also serve as executive producer for the mini-series, which aims to tell the real story about the infamous 1605 Gunpowder Plot.

Sherrinford, Eurus, Moriarty - Sherlock and Watson have their work cut out.
The question all along, it seems, was not ''who' is Sherrinford?', but rather ''what' is Sherrinford?'. The season four finale of 'Sherlock' entitled 'The Final Problem' was rife with plot twists and a story much darker than any previous episode. Plus, the return of Jim Moriarty - sort of. Warning: Spoilers ahead.
As it's revealed that Watson (Martin Freeman) was not, in fact, shot in the head with a bullet but with a tranquiliser at the end of 'The Lying Detective', Sherlock (Benedict Cumberbatch) and Dr. Watson confront Mycroft (Mark Gatiss) about the so-called Holmes sister Eurus (Sian Brooke), who Sherlock has no memory of. Mycroft eventually explains how she was their psychotic younger sibling whose genius far exceeded each of theirs. She was sent away at a young age after apparently killing Sherlock's dog Redbeard and is now held at a high security institution in the middle of the ocean called Sherrinford.
Gatiss, who co-created the series with Steven Moffat and plays Sherlock's brother Mycroft, responded to Ralph Jones' scathing review of 'The Six Thatchers' in The Guardian.
‘Sherlock’ co-creator and star Mark Gatiss has responded in style to a newspaper critic who had accused the show of turning Benedict Cumberbatch’s character into ‘Sherlock Bond’, penning a short verse defending the direction they had chosen.
The updated version of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s detective stories returned to BBC One for its first proper series in three years on New Year’s Day, with the first of three episodes that was entitled ‘The Six Thatchers’.

'Sherlock' series four begins on New Year's Day - but co-creators Mark Gatiss and Steven Moffat aren't sure whether there will be any more.
‘Sherlock’ returns for a full series for the first time in nearly three years on New Year’s Day – but the growing Hollywood success of its chief stars Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman means that the new fourth series could be the last.
That is, at least, according to the BBC One drama’s co-creator Mark Gatiss, who told reporters at a recent screening that while everybody involved was enthusiastic to make more episodes, the increasing difficulty of getting them in the same place at the same time was placing the future of ‘Sherlock’ in jeopardy.

The actor wasn’t deemed sexy enough by show bosses.
Speaking to The Sunday People, Gatiss said Cumberbatch was originally thought of as “a sort of ginger weird person” and not sexy enough for the role.

An old trailer with the confirmation we've all been waiting for.
A trailer for the fourth season of 'Sherlock' has been re-released, this time featuring the air date of the first episode 'The Six Thatchers'. There's no new footage available, but creators were more than generous with what they released earlier this year. Fan theories are rife.
Benedict Cumberbatch returns as genius sleuth in 'Sherlock' season 4
The 'new trailer' that everyone's going on about is exactly the same as the initial teaser we saw from San Diego Comic-Con, only this time we get to see the release date. It confirms the heavy amount of speculation that it will air on New Year's Day, just like the 2016 special 'The Abominable Bride'.

John le Carre's novel is adapted with plenty of inventive style into a remarkably personal thriller, packed with thrills that find suspense in the characters and their predicament rather than pushy movie cliches. It's so sleek and involving that it's easy to ignore the nagging plot holes. We're too busy imagining what we might do in the same situations.
It opens in Marrakech, where poetry professor Perry (Ewan McGregor) and his lawyer wife Gail (Naomie Harris) have gone in an attempt to save their troubled marriage. One evening in a bar, Perry meets the boisterous Dima (Stellan Skarsgard), a Russian who openly admits that he launders money for the mafia. And he asks for Perry's help in delivering information to British intelligence in exchange for his family's safety. Back in London, Perry meets MI6 agent Hector (Damian Lewis), who sees this data as vital to bring down corrupt British politicians. But he has to go rogue to continue on the case, drafting Perry and Gail in to help. Soon they're travelling to France and Switzerland in a dangerous game that puts them in the crosshairs of both a Russian mafia boss (Grigoriy Dobrigyn) and a shifty British MP (Jeremy Northam).
The key point here is that Perry and Gail get involved because they are trying to help Dima's family. This makes everything that happens unusually down-to-earth, with a plot that hinges on the safety of a wife and children rather than the fate of the world. Actually, it's the state of the world that's the villain here, as corrupt Western politicians accept huge money to sidestep the rule of law. Screenwriter Hossein Amini is terrific at keeping the film's focus on the people rather than the plot machinery. And director Susanna White fills the screen with classy touches that are gorgeously shot and edited. The action sequences are unusually clever, avoiding cliches for something more deeply involving (a big shootout is particularly imaginative).

The first 'Sherlock' episode to be set in Victorian London.
By now, fans are used to being drip fed episodes of 'Sherlock' - what more can you expect with two award-winning Hollywood actors in the lead roles? - but ever since Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss revealed the Victorian theme of the next Christmas special, fans have been gasping with thirst.
Now, the official title has been announced! Alongside a launch date (alas, AFTER Christmas). And yet, we're still rather in the dark about what to expect. Here's what we know so far:

The upcoming re-boot is set to hit theatres in February 2016.
If you weren't getting giddy with excitement for the big screen adaptation of 'Dad's Army' next year, you certainly will be now. The new trailer has arrived and we challenge you to keep the smile off your face. Euphemisms, slapstick humour and ridiculous costumes galore, this upcoming movie truly is the best of British comedy.
Catherine Zeta-Jones is the epitome of World War II beauty
Based on Jimmy Perry's enormously popular war comedy series of the same name which ran from 1968 to 1977 and starred Arthur Lowe, Ian Lavender and Arnold Ridley among others, the movie features re-imaginings of all your favourite characters, plus a few new personalities. The likes of bumbling Captain Mainwaring (Toby Jones), mild-mannered Private Godfrey (Michael Gambon) and simple-minded Private Pike (Blake Harrison) will be joined by a stunning and charming journalist named Rose Winters (Catherine Zeta-Jones), and the poshest officer the military has to offer Colonel Theakes (Mark Gatiss).
Everybody's favourite British regiment is back in the new version of Dad's Army. Director Oliver Parker has recruited the much loved classic British TV Show with the help of some of the UK's best known actors. Like the TV show, the movie is set in 1944 and World War II is almost at its peak. The Home Guard is patrolling the streets of Walmington-on-Sea and their spirits are rather dampened by the thought of the imminent invasion. Their only light relief comes from a visit from a beautiful journalist going by the name of Rose Winters. Rose soon has all the men on their best behaviour and all the ladies of the town attempting to up their game. However it's soon 'back to work' for the men when they find out there's a spy living amidst the residents in their small seaside town.
