COLIN MORGAN JOINS 
 RUPERT EVERETT'S 'THE HAPPY PRINCE' OSCAR WILDE BIOPIC
Our beloved British TV star Colin Morgan, whom we just watched this year in The Living And the Dead period set series and Humans sf series, has joined Rupert Everett's Oscar Wilde biopic THE HAPPY PRINCE which stars not only Everett as well, who is also writing and directing, but Colin Firth as well!
THE HAPPY PRINCE, which has the story set in the last days of legendary writer Wilde as he lies on his death bed and the past floods back to him, transporting him to other times and places, will also have other acting legends in the cast including Emily Watson, Tom Wilkinson and Miranda Richardson!

NEW 'TABOO' TEASER 
 FOR TOM HARDY EPIC TV SERIES
Speaking of period set projects, you can also check out the new teaser for Tom Hardy epic series TABOO which will air at BBC and FX soon. Written by Hardy himself, it follows a traveller long thought dead who returns to 1814 London after ten years in Africa, burdened with his father's mysterious legacy. His obscure family history comes to the fore when he clashes with the all-powerful East India Company over control of his family's shipping business. The 8 episode series also stars Jonathan Pryce and Jessie Buckley

  2. Colin Morgan was amazing in Merlin. Good for him still getting work. Taboo seems right up Tom's alley.

    1. I think you will like him in THE LIVING AND THE DEAD too if you ever get a chance to see that series. He wasn't good in acting in it, but he certainly was utterly gorgeous since they let his hair grow a bit more.

  3. Taboo looks promising! I don't have many new shows on my radar, so this will probably fill a slot.

    1. it still does not have a release date! I'm just turning to my British series myself, started THE COLLECTION this week, and then next week POLDARK. I'm already following VICTORIA and EMPIRE and Z NATION because every boy needs a zombie show from time to time :)

    2. I saw on Facebook you were watching Victoria. I'll definitely have to catch up on that one now that my shows are drying up.

    3. I think you will rather like it, it is very feminine and doesn't have politics at all, it is mostly about her love and girly things :) the cast is quite lovely, I've always liked Rufus Sewell, but his acting is really mesmerizing in this one, very expressive and delightful and even Jenna Coleman is nice eventhough I despise that Victoria enslaver.
