The new episodes of the Marple series will air in the US on PBS. The first episode – ‘Sleeping Murder’ will air on Sunday, June 4 at 9.00 pm.
A little later the DVDs will become available in the UK: on July 17. You’ll be able to either buy a box with all 4 episodes (the 4th is airing this Sunday on ITV1, by the way) or a single DVD with just one episode. The ‘Sleeping Murder’ DVD features the following extra features: Behind the Scenes, On Location and an Interview With Geraldine McEwan.
I’ve added the links to the official television sites and to Amazon on the ‘Sleeping Murder’ page.
2 newly added filmarticles:
• Art School Rejects
• Doctor Who Press Release
I’ve added the first still of Sophia as Madame du Pompadour:
001 Doctor Who: Girl in the Fireplace – Stills
And yet another update. This is for the British visitors: With April 15 being confirmed to be the beginning date for the transmission of Series 2 of the new Doctor Who series Saturday, May 6, will be the day Episode 4 will air. It’s all on BBC1 at 7.00 pm. ‘The Girl in the Fireplace’ – as this episode is called – will take place in 18th-century France and guest starring as the French noblewoman Madame Pompadour is Sophia Myles. Stay tuned for more information. Gallifreyone is full of news/updates/rumours etc on the series.
Something for our visitors from the States: The first part of ‘The Hades Factor’ is airing on CBS on Sunday April 9, 9PM ET/PT and is continued on Sunday April 16, 9PM ET/PT. I guess Sophia’s character will only be in the first part. Visit CBS for pictures. Please check your TV Guides for any pictures of Sophia Myles. I haven’t been able to find any online.
The Miss Marple mystery ‘Sleeping Murder’ aired on Canadian television CBC – as announced – on Sunday 15th. If you’ve watched it, any comments about it are welcome! I checked ITV1’s listings for this week: but ‘Sleeping Murder’ isn’t listed for Saturday. So I did some digging on the net and the new information that I found on Custard TV says that it will air in the UK on ITV 1 on Sunday, February 5. Listing on ITV.Com
The mini-series made for US TV CBS ‘The Hades Factor’ is now listed on IMDb. And it is slated to air in May 2006. On the website for co-author of the novel Gayle Lynds I found a picture of Sophia Myles on the set. As I still haven’t received permission from the website to put it on my site I post the link to it: Go here to see it.
Don’t forget: Today is the day. After having returned to London from the ‘Tristan & Isolde’ promotion and some meetings in L.A., Sophia Myles is back in the States at the Sundance Film Festival. Today she attends the premiere screening of ‘Art School Confidential’ and meets the press.
Even before ‘Sleeping Murder’ airs on ITV in the UK on January 28, the Miss Marple episode will – according to this report – air on CBC Television this Sunday, January 15, at 8 p.m. If you see it, can you please tell us about it?
Sleeping Murder, filmed in Devon, tells the story of a young woman, Gwenda (Sophia Myles), who is instinctively drawn to the perfect home in the picturesque seaside village of Dillmouth, while searching for a house. But the house has a terrible past, a past she is forced to confront as she suffers a disturbing case of deja vu. It also stars Dawn French (French & Saunders), Martin Kemp (The EastEnders), Paul McGann (Hornblower) and Geraldine Chaplin (Dr. Zhivago), among many others.
