Can’t see anything you like on the television at the moment? Then have no fear as TV Talk looks at the shows that have been recommissioned and ones that we are looking forward to seeing.
The Rob Brydon Show
Rob Brydon’s take on a chat show will be back over the summer on BBC Two, as another six episodes have been commissioned. The programme is a mix of celebrity chat, comedy and music, and Brydon says that some great guests are already lined up.
It is not the only comedy show returning, as Sarah Millican’s Television Show has also been given another series.
The hit US show may have only just finished but Channel 4 have already confirmed that they will be showing the second series. The continuity announcer said that Channel 4 have signed the rights as the credits were rolling on the final episode.
The Golden Globe award winning show starred Britain’s very own Damian Lewis, who impressed Emma with his realistic American accent.
While waiting for the show to come back to UK televisions, you can pre-order the DVD from Amazon.
The BBC still has not confirmed a date for the return of Doctor Who this year, but Digital Spy says the new series will be premiered at the 2012 Edinburgh Television Festival in late August. The same happened with the last series of Doctor Who, which was then aired on television soon after.
It has already been revealed that Amy and Rory will be leaving part way through series seven, and a new companion played by Jenna-Louise Coleman will be introduced in the Christmas special.
Call The Midwife
Talking about Christmas (yes, I know it is only May) The BBC has announced that Call the Midwife will return earlier than expected with a Christmas special. The series has also seen recognition for actress and comedian Miranda Hart, who has been nominated for a Bafta in the supporting actress category.
The Christmas special will see Miranda Hart return alongside Jenny Agutter and Pam Ferris, but full plot details are not yet known. In the meantime you can buy the first series on DVD from Amazon.
