BBC PREPARING 'DICKENSIAN' EPIC TV SERIES SET IN A STREET WITH ALL DICKENS' CHARACTERS WITH CAROLINE QUENTIN, TOM WESTON JONES, PAULINE COLLINS! CHANNING TATUM TO PRODUCE 'TWO KISSES FOR MADDY' TOUCHING DRAMA!

CHANNING TATUM HAS
'TWO KISSES FOR MADDY'!
Now, it isn't yet known if he will star in it too, but Hollywood hunk Channing Tatum will produce the big screen adaptation of popular best selling novel TWO KISSES FOR MADDY from Matthew Logelin for Sony Pictures. The heart breaking story of the emotional book revolves around a father who must raise his newborn daughter alone after his wife tragically dies 27 hours after childbirth. As Maddy grows older, her father gives her two kisses each night, one from himself and one from her mother.

'DICKENSIAN' BBC EPIC DRAMA
WITH ALL DICKENS' CHARACTERS
Meanwhile, in TV news, something rather interesting coming from BBC! They are preparing a 20 half hour episode series DICKEN- SIAN which will bring together some of the writer's most iconic characters as their lives intertwine in unique and surprising ways in 19th Century London.
The stellar cast will include Caroline Quentin (as 'Oliver Twists' Mrs Bumble), Peter Firth, Stephen Rea (as tenacious Inspector Bucket from 'Bleak House'), Pauline Collins (as gin-tippling Mrs Gamp from 'Martin Chuzzlewit'), Tuppence Middleton, Sophie Rundle, Omid Djalili, Anton Lesser, Ned Dennehy, Adrian Rawlins and Tom Weston-Jones. The 90-metre, cobbled 19th century street which has already been built by the studio for Dickens' characters to inhabit will also welcome Scrooge, Fagin and Miss Havisham among other literary faces!

  1. Now Dicken-sian sounds marvelous. What a great idea to see all those characters "bumping" into one another.

    Oh, I began watching The Mill last night. It's a good one and I'm completely hooked on the characters.

    1. And so many great actors in it... I love Pauline Collins! I love that generation of British actresses from 55 to 75 :) Imelda Staunton, Pauline,Celia Imrie, Judi Dench, Maggie, Brenda Blethyn....

      See, I told ya so :) I positively adored Kerrie Heyes as Esther in it! Now, when you finish that go on to CRIMSON FIELD. And then to THE VILLAGE from BBC. I'm currently in the phase of watching BRITISH BAKE OFF :) But the videos at YouTube are terrible :(

    2. I just checked YouTube and I can't get Crimson Field or The Village yet. I haven't watched the British Bake of for ages. I can get them on YouTube, but a year late. That's the perfect show for you darling.

      Have you ever tried to find The Graham Norton show? It's a talk show on BBC and it's so funny. Graham is Irish, he's gay and everybody just adores him. He's all our favourite Brit actors and actresses on. He'll ask them anything and they act so relaxed with him. Judi has been on loads of times and he has Gerard Butler round as well. Mary Berry comes on too and all the young men just love her.

    3. CRIMSON will air next month at PBS in USA. Dahlink, you must come over to the dark side and start torrenting like the rest of us :)

      I watch old seasons of Bake Off... season fourth right now... but the videos are terrible at YouTube for some reason they make them really small. BBC Feckers....

      I haven't seen Graham, will have to check him out somewhere :) I like Mary Berry but I can't stand Paul Hollywood.. he is so full of himself....

    4. The Spawn torrents, but she has wound up with some bad viruses as a result, so I stay away from it.

      They do those small screens with some of my favourite shows as well. There's this cute detective show called "New Tricks" about coppers in my age group and I adore that show. This last season they put the videos within a tiny box and I can barely see it. They've recently done the same with 8 out of 10 Cats and it pisses me off.

      Ya, Paul is full of himself. You can tell he's had work done and that he lays in a tanning bed. Trying too hard to look younger than he is. He's got that "creepy guy" thing about him.

    5. Dahlink, you cannot get viruses if you have an antivirus programme. I told the both of you to download Avast from their website... the free version. It stops all threats and updates itself daily. I've been safe and torrenting for many years now....

      I don't get that with the small screen.. I mean those are all old seasons... WTF?

      Yep, tanned and sorta evil :) But what I love about the show is that my fave hunk always wins :) It was that cute redhead in the first season and gorgeous John in the third :) And now in the fourth they have this adorable Indian boy....

  2. Somehow I don't see Channing Tatum as the daddy type. I prefer him as an action hero :)

    2. He looks like a statue. Not real.

    1. agreed. I read five or six... didn't like them much... but certainly knows how to draw a character

  5. It's almost summer - time for plenty of Dick characters.

    1. this one probably won't air in the summer :) but next year :)

  6. I would like to see Channing in Two Kisses For Maddie. I like it when he shows his sweet side. I'm sure he could really draw from his real life experience as a father.

    1. should be really nice, he can have such warm look in his eyes when he is not acting macho :) Unlike Ben Affleck who was horrid as a single father in JERSEY GIRL or what was that film? I hear Garner is divorcing him... I've always said he should marry Matt Damon and they can be arrogant together :)

      Delete
    2. I agree. Ben seems like a real douche. I really like Jennifer Garner, so was hoping maybe he wasn't a real ass behind the scenes for her sake. Guess not. His womanizing and gambling probably tore that relationship to shreds.

    3. and him getting all those muscles for Batman probably made him even more egoistic and arrogant :) I truly don't know why he left J.Lo, those two were a much better suited couple :)

      Delete
    4. Both their egos probably battled each other on a daily basis, and neither probably liked the competition!

      Delete
    5. but I can imagine they had great sex together :)

  7. I have a feeling Channing Tatum knows it'll do much better if he is in it! Although Reese Witherspoon has been buying up books to produce and not starring in them...

    1. Reese is probably better of screen, Channing on screen :)

  8. Trust the BBC to do something new with Dickens! Sounds like it has possibilities . . . . .

  9. The Dickens things sounds interesting. Should be good.

  10. Um... I don't know Dezz....How's that Dickens thing fun unless you know the original books? And why would it be fun to put those characters in the same space?

    1. everybody in UK knows all Dickens' characters, Blue....

    2. Ah... of course. And knowing characters makes it fun to see them inhabit the same space. I get it.

    3. I wonder what would Dicky say about it :)

      Delete
    4. He'd say, Pray, suck my name!

    5. now, wouldn't that be a delight!

GIVE SOME LOVE TO YOUR DEZZY :)
