Yes folks, it’s Tuesday, and that can only mean one thing – it’s time to get down the shops and pick up the all-singing, all-dancing latest edition of TV&Satellite Week. Here’s what’s inside:
• Jack Davenport tells us about his role as the caustic British producer of a Broadway musical about Marilyn Monroe in Sky Atlantic’s snazzy new drama, Smash. With Anjelica Huston and Debra Messing on board, the show promises to be Glee for grown-ups.
• James Cracknell puts his adventurer boots on and embarks on the World’s Toughest Expeditions, from the Amazon to the Zambezi. Bear Grylls, eat your heart out!
• If dead bodies and bad guys are more your thing, there’s a double helping, with Brenda Blethyn as dogged detective Vera, and a brand new Scandinavian crime drama called The Bridge, featuring chalk-and-cheese detectives from Sweden and Denmark.
Plus, Douglas Henshall in a gritty kidnap drama, H from Steps on being On the Road Again, a shocking shooting in Desperate Housewives, the secret life of Queen Victoria, and our weekly round-up of all the best films, sporting events and documentaries.
