BBC'S AGATHA CHRISTIE 'WITNESS FOR THE PROSECUTION' TV SERIES TRAILER WITH KIM CATTRALL, TOBY JONES IS HERE! 'STAR TREK: DISCOVERY' TV SERIES BOARDS KLINGONS

 'STAR TREK: DISCOVERY' 
BOARDS THE KLINGON CREW
CBS is boarding first Klingons to join Michelle Yeoh (Starfleet captain Georgiou), Doug Jones (Lt. Saru, a Starfleet Science Officer), Anthony Rapp (Lt. Stamets, an astromy cologist, Starfleet Science Officer) in the cast for new STAR TREK: DISCOVERY series which will follow one of the first Starfleet ships to venture boldly into the space (next May) with a female commander as the lead character (TWD's Sonequa Martin Green is rumoured for the role).
New actors to play Klingons are: Chris Obi as T'Kuvma, the Klingon leader seeking to unite the Klingon houses; Shazad Latif (in the photo) as Kol, the Commanding Officer of the Klingons and protégé of T’Kuvma; and Mary Chieffo as L'Rell, the Battle Deck Commander of the Klingon ship.

 BBC'S TRAILER FOR 
AGATHA CHRISTIE'S 'THE WITNESS FOR THE PROSECUTION'
Just two weeks ahead of the premiere, BBC has released the trailer for their new Agatha Christie two part series THE WITNESS FOR THE PROSECUTION airing on the 26th and 27th December! It tells the story of heiress Emily French (Kim Cattrall) who is found battered in a pool of blood in her luxurious home after seducing war veteran Leonard Vole (Billy Howle). Penniless solicitor John Mayhew (Toby Jones) and Vole’s common law wife Romaine Heilger (Andrea Riseborough) find themselves entangled in the mess.

Hello, stranger. Long time no blog (for me). Sorry, but Marlene Dietrich and Tyrone Power will always define "Witness." Good luck, Cattrall.

DEZMOND said...

yes, unlike last year's And Then There Were None, which was truly brilliant, this one does not look overly promising

Looking forward to some Trek!

DEZMOND said...

hope the Starfleet does not disappoint us. I have an unpleasant feeling it will be a very old fashioned series

Blue Grumpster said...

Why is that, Dezzz?

DEZMOND said...

because it will be set before all other series, the cast seems boring, character descriptions too. I wanted it to be set far far away into the future, and they're constantly bringing it deeper in the Starfleet past. It will flop like Enterprise most probably

Who is lying in the trailer? The defendant or the witness. Guess we'll see. This new Star Trek stopped hitting my hype button when Michelle Y. was shown not to be the real star. Who else should I be excited to see starring in this? Guess we'll see but Star Trek Discovery might just discover only one to two seasons. Possibly.

Lynda R Young as Elle Cardy said...

I'm looking forward to STAR TREK: DISCOVERY
Really hope they get Charismatic actors.

Hmmm, The Witness looks hit or miss. Nothing really grabbing my attention here. The kitty is still pretty darn cute though :)

DEZMOND said...

The witness methinks, but I haven't read the novel :) A black lady, I hear, will be the lead star of Star Trek, since putting white people in lead roles seems to be offensive these days :) For some time I actually thought they'd gonna put some transgender alien in the lead role for the sake of utter diversity lol

DEZMOND said...

me too, but so far we haven't got any of those, seems they will repeat their formulaic casting again

DEZMOND said...

OMG the kitty could be the killer!

Debra She Who Seeks said...

Ooooo, love that shot of the cat tracking blood across the carpet! Very creepy.

DEZMOND said...

I tell you, the cat could be the killer...

Theresa Mahoney said...

Maybe. Sometimes I think cats were sent up from Hell. My in-laws had some really mean cats over the years. It wouldn't surprise me if they were murdering bastards by night.

DEZMOND said...

most of my cats were/are murdering bastards, I've caught them a number of times butchering a pigeon or a dove, even a pheasant. Nyatza's late brother Arsenie once caught, killed and ate a white dove, I nearly fainted when I saw it. And Nyatza's lil' bastard daughter Simonida killed one of our turtle doves and ate it when she was just three months old. They're ebil, ebil I say

Debra She Who Seeks said...

I don't doubt it for a minute.

DEZMOND said...

mice for the prosecution! :)

Theresa Mahoney said...

That's a lot of bird killing going on at your place! The cats here are usually after the squirrels, so thankfully, no dead birds to be had. I do find a few mice laying in my yard from time to time. I think the neighbors cat is leaving me little gifts. We did have a hawk butcher a poor little bunny on our deck once. I went to let the dogs out and saw a mutilated bunny all over the place. What a mess! I had to wake Jason up to come clean the mess up before the girls woke up.

DEZMOND said...

Good thing the hawk didn't focus on one of your dogs, hawks and owls certainly won't shy away from hunting down a cat or a dog too, like they tried a few times with my kittens. Thankfully we don't have any mice around my house, so my cats can't bring me gifts. We just have our hedgehog Jozo who comes incognito from time to time for a nocturnal steal of my cats' food. He is huge as a soccer ball.
