“Richard Armitage took rakishness to new lubricious heights”, is Moira Petty’s description in her favourable review of Clarissa in The Stage.

Clarissa Part 3, airs on Sunday 28th March at 3pm.

Media page has been updated with excerpts from the  second part of Clarissa and ringtones from The Code Poem and Ted Hughes.

Sky Press Office has put out a press release stating that Strike Back will begin the week of 1-7 May on Sky1 and Sky HD. The six-part series will feature three stand alone narratives. Richard comments, “It’s   an ambitious project for television. We’ve made three feature films on a TV budget and schedule. But the advantage of that is that these three feature films are linked together so you get a really interesting character arc through all episodes. American television is being brave and doing that at the moment, and this is stepping into that area.”  (Thanks RANet)

“Sophia Myles, Laila Rouass join Spooks cast”, in What’s On TV – “As well as Sophia and Laila, Max Brown (Mistresses, The Tudors), Iain Glen (Lara Croft: Tomb Raider) and acclaimed theatre actor Simon Russell Beale will join Spooks as series regulars. But the characters they play and the impact they have on the team dynamic is being kept tightly under wraps.”

And, according to Ian Wylie, “Spooks: Drama Ahead On The Grid”, quoting from the BBC Press release,  “Sarah Brandist, BBC Executive Producer, said: “We are very proud to introduce an extraordinary number of exciting new characters to this new series. The new additions will really ruffle some feathers but, as intrigue and betrayal is at the heart of the new storylines, we don’t want to give too much away at this stage. All will be revealed when the series transmits on BBC One later this year!””

Media page has been updated with Venetia ringtones.
