  1. John H says:

    The new Ray Donovan is not showing as being broadcast on 4th July, on Sky Atlantic, as you have indicated. Is there a hitch, and now a delayed showing? Anybody know anything?

  2. Sally woods says:

    Any sign of anyone picking up WynonnaEarp Or Hunters yet??

  3. Mark J says:

    Killjoys Season 1? Aug 2016 syfy uk? Shouldn’t that be season 2?

  4. Mary says:

    The Clan renamed now as The Outlaws is airing on Friday 15th June on More4
    Walter Presents announced it on Twitter

  5. Day says:

    With leaving the EU will it really affect the plans and production of British movies and TV series? The papers say that HBO relied a lot on EU grants for Game of Thrones production costs. Will it hurt it’s production for the next series?

    • Andrew Andrew says:

      Nobody knows for sure. People have voted for something without knowing all the consequences of their choice. As for Game of Thrones, it is now so huge that it probably has pockets deep enough to offset the loss of grants. Besides, it’ll be finished by the time we leave.
      As for other future productions, who knows? Frankly this is one of the minor ramifications of the decision taken.

    • Dave Elliott Dave Elliott says:

      The GoT stuff in the papers I don’t think is totally accurate. It *did* get a lot of EU funding for the first couple of seasons, but now most of it’s funding comes from NI Screen and Invest NI, who are saying it’s ‘business as usual’. It had also already been announced that the next 2 seasons would be shorter runs anyway, which should help if the funding does reduce. Plus, as Andrew pointed out, we could very well still be part of the EU by the time the show finishes, as they are predicting it will take up to 2yrs for everything to go through.

      As for the UK film/tv industry as a whole, that’s a little more tricky. It will very much depend on how an independent UK looks to foreign investment once we are actually out. And that’s a huge unknown entity until any new trade deals are in place. But that’s not just an issue for the film/tv industry, that’s a problem for all companies that rely on foreign investment. It’s unfortunate we find ourselves in this position now, but that’s where we are.

      It will have a impact on European co-productions and British independent film companies working in Europe in the short term at least, as there’s so much uncertainty as to what’s going to happen now. All we can do is hope that things turn out okay, as we’re very much in uncharted waters.

      • Andrew Andrew says:

        One thing is for sure- we all thought that Westeros was loosely based on Britain’s history. It turns out that in fact, that the future of the United Kingdom (which already was independent, by the way, but now considerably less united), is more based on Westeros.

        • Dave Elliott Dave Elliott says:

          I only used the term ‘independent’ as it seems less unwieldy wording than ‘non-EU UK’, but yes, I agree. It does start to look more like Westeros by the day.

          Can’t help thinking that the arrival of the Wotsit faced Trump in Scotland, their understandable desire for a new independence vote, and his penchant for building walls can’t be a coincidence… 😉 (Despite the weather up there sometimes, I’m not convinced a wall of ice would be all that practical.)

  6. edward perkins says:

  11. Jez says:

  12. AKK says:

    brief encounters starts 4 july at 9pm on ITV

  13. Jez says:

    Are 5star showing the magicians out of order? Sky listed ep 1 13 last week, ep 1 8 this week 🙁

    • Andrew Andrew says:

      It doesn’t look like it. The EPG shows them in the correct order and besides, episode 13 is the finale so it seems highly unlikely. Perhaps a data error on Sky’s part.

  14. edward perkins says:

  27. Richard O says:

    Is there going to be a new series of Most Haunted on Really? And is there any news yet on Slasher being renewed for a second season?

    • Andrew Andrew says:

      Most Haunted is on Really from 30th June. I think these are new episodes which would make them Series 19.

      There’s no news of a Slasher renewal yet.

      • Richard O says:

        Thanks Andrew. 🙂 I can’t remember which UK TV magazine I read it in, but it said there would be new Series 4 episodes of Most Haunted on UK TV Play (The start date was very soon). The assumption I made was that it’s the fourth series of the show made with channel Really.

  28. Ian Thomson says:

    Is orphan black season 4 coming on bbc at anytime

    • Catya says:

      Orphan black was dropped by UK BBC. It is now a Netflix exclusive. All of season 4 is there. Season5 will presumably be weekly on Netflix when it airs in USA.

  29. Graham Nicholson says:

    I am fan Ncis Los Angeles season 7 when its on Channel 5

  30. DaveB says:

    Just belatedly spotted the info. on your news page (I tend to whizz straight to the airdates – guilty face) that Amazon Prime have picked up two Canal+ series – Baron Noir & The Bureau (Le Bureau des légendes). Excellent news (sort of) as I really want to see these. Though I’m so far behind on Netflix & Walter Presents stuff that it might be a while before I get round to subscribing to Amazon to watch them.

    The article says season 1 of The Bureau (just renewed for a 3rd season in France) is up tomorrow but doesn’t mention the date for Baron Noir. Do you know if that is tomorrow as well?

  31. Claire says:

    Does anyone know what’s happened to The Originals?

    Anyone know which episodes of Chicago Fire/PD/Med + SVU are crossovers please


    • Ian says:

      I hope I’ve got these right (from TVRage listings on
      2 crossovers last season

      Pt 1 Chicago Fire S4 Ep10 “The Beating Heart”
      Pt 2 Chicago Med S1 Ep5 “Malignant”
      Pt 3 Chicago PD S3 Ep 10 “Now I’m God”

      Pt 1 L&O:SVU S17 Ep 14 “Nationwide Manhunt”
      Pt 2 Chicago PD S3 Ep 15 “The Song of Gregory Williams Yates”

      I think the Chicago Med and L&O:SVU have already been shown, the others will come in a few months.
      Hope this helps.

  45. sgt bilko says:

    Any idea what happened to episodes 2 & beyond of that Spanish women prison drama on C4 which aired last month?
    Do you know when it resumes presuming it hasn’t been on?

  46. AKK says:

    hi i wanted to ask, since Nashville probably will be picked up by CMT and Hulu, will it affect the UK airing as Viacom (channel 5 and Comedy Central owner) owns CMT in the states. So will it continue on Sky Living?

    • Andrew Andrew says:

      US shows don’t necessarily (or usually, even) air on the US network’s international channels in international markets (eg the UK). In fact, it’s possible that, in many cases, the network can make more money by selling it to other international channels.

    • Dave Elliott Dave Elliott says:

      I suspect it will stay with Sky (assuming they want it), as CMT are only the US broadcast network. Lionsgate, who make the show, are the international distributor, so the Sky deal is with them, not CMT.
