The Watch’s Magical Cast of Cops and Criminals Is Getting Bigger

The BBC’s upcoming series The Watch based on Terry Pratchett’s Discworld books already has a rather robust cast playing a group of elite, though scrappy cops fighting to bring peace to their corrupt town where crime’s been legalised. But the show was clearly still in need of some proper villains to give its heroes adversaries to face off against.

Watchmen Revealed the Big Lie That Changed the World and Destroyed a Man

Watchmen’s cast of masked cops playing at being superheroes were all shaped by different traumas that bowled them over at points in their lives when they were most vulnerable.

Crisis Just Shared a Bunch of New Photos, Including Our First Look at Kevin Conroy’s Live-Action Batman

It’s great that the CW’s Crisis on Infinite Earths is bringing back different actors who played various incarnations of Superman and Lois Lane, and that the event’s digging deep into WB history to give Smallville and Birds of Prey stans the kind of fan service they could scarcely dream of.

BBC War of the Worlds Review: Rafe Spall Frowns for an Hour With Good Reason

OK look, I'm not a TV reviewer. I don't get things weeks in advance on DVD, or a special link to a password-protected iPlayer, or invited to advance screenings with a director/cast Q&A and herby sausage rolls after at the Bafta HQ in London.
