In a world where the undead are waiting around every corner to tear you limb from limb, naturally you have worries more pressing than trying to penetrate the brooding aloofness of Mr Darcy. And yet, Elizabeth Bennet's dexterity in destroying zombies leaves her able to ponder the trivial moments of her life; not that potential marriage is regarded as such within the Bennet household. Elizabeth's parents are determined to wed their daughters to some wealthy newcomers, and while she isn't the prettiest of her sisters, her down-to-earth and bookish nature is enough to catch Mr Darcy's eye. But this isn't a straight-forward relationship; this couple have a lot of feelings to unlock while defending each other against flesh-eating fiends. Let's just hope death doesn't get in the way of what could truly be a match made in heaven.
The Doctor Who star David Tennant was among the celebrities to be auctioned off for Centrepoint's annual charity quiz. For the 'showbiz' round of the quiz, the teams - made up of London business workers - could bid for a choice of David Tennant, Jorgie Porter, Hugh Grant and JONATHAN to help them to victory. The money raised from the quiz was all donated to the Centrepoint charity, who support the needs of homeless young people in London.
According to the Press Association, the quiz was presided over by the TV host Fern Britton and in the past, the "light-hearted" quiz has raised £50,000 for the charity. A spokesperson from Centrepoint said "It was our best Ultimate Pub Quiz yet and the first in the Centre Point Tower, it couldn't have gone much better." The eventual winners were Herbert Smith LLP, an international law firm.
Earlier this week, DAVID TENNAT was named Best Actor at the BBC Audio Drama Awards. He was awarded the title for his performance in the Radio 3 drama Kafka: The Musical. Tennant is set to appear in The Decoy Bride, a romantic comedy in which he stars alongside Kelly MacDonald and Alice Eve. The screenplay is written by Sally Phillips, the comedian known for her appearances in sitcoms and sketch shows such as Miranda, Smack the Pony and Green Wing.

British actress Sally Phillips has spoken of her "total joy" as she raises a son with Down's syndrome.
The Bridget Jones's Diary star is mum to sons Oliver, six, and three-year-old Luke.
Oliver was born with Down's syndrome and was also diagnosed with autism at a young age, but Phillips insists she feels blessed to be his mother.
She tells The Lady magazine, "I was haunted by a friend who wrote two books when her Down's syndrome daughter was born about the horror, the pain, the trauma and then her daughter grew up and read the books.

Executive Producer Guy Ritchie's influence is more than slightly evident in first time feature director Barry Skolnick's style. You get the requisite mini music videos, a camera which refuses to sit still, shots that don't appear on screen for more than a few seconds (what ever became of the art of composition?), and an abundance of stylized violence tossed in for good measure. Many of Ritchie's regular actors are along for the ride too, such as Jones (who's actually asked to do more than just wear his patented steely glare), Blackwood, Jason Flemyng, and most notably Jason Statham, as martial arts savvy psychopath Monk.

Well, throw enough money at something and it's bound to change people's minds. In fact, that seems to be the operating assumption for the entirety of this sequel, Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason, a lackluster follow-up to the mildly enchanting original.

Whether the feature film version of "Bridget Jones's Diary" -- that exalted, best-selling ode to 30-something single gals -- properly captures the oversized pajamas-and-Haagen Dazs essence of "singleton" romantic vexation, I cannot say.
I am male and I haven't read the book, and either one of these facts excludes me from being a bona fide member of the cult following that has built up around this lovelorn English Everywoman. Everything I know about Bridget's struggles with smoking, men and her weight I have gleaned from friends' enthusiastic reviews of the two Helen Fielding novels, which I'm told are written as diary entries in the heroine's first-person short-hand. (I hear both books are v., v. good.)
But I do consider myself something of an expert on (and an unabashed fan of) winsome romantic comedies, and on that front, I'd have to say this movie is a winner.

In "Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason," the "singleton" Everygal neuroses of its titular British sweetheart have gone from endearing to downright insufferable.
Although still played warmly and winningly by the perfectly plus-sized Renee Zellweger, upon the advent of her still-fresh relationship with dashing, adoring, and a tad bit stiff barrister boyfriend Mark Darcy (Colin Firth), Bridget has become an embarrassing bundle of infuriating stock insecurities.
Jealous, suspicious, clingy, marriage-obsessed and irrational, in effect she's the antagonist in this romantic-comedy sequel. The hero is Mark -- whom she landed at the end of 2001's "Bridget Jones's Diary" -- for putting up with the torrent of rampant, relentless sitcom antics that stream unflatteringly and unchecked from the girl's vacillating self-confidence.
