Julianne Nicholson is playing Ivy in August- Osage County. Not too disappointed that its not Amy Adams as I loved Julianne in Boardwalk Empire. Really hope they keep in the piano scene between Benedict’s character and Ivy.
Benedict has made the National Television Awards (NTA) shortlist for Best Actor (featuring both Sherlock & Parade’s End). Sherlock & Parade’s End are also up for Best Drama series.

Long-delayed video-on-demand service aims replace Freeview as a subscription-free alternative to BSkyB and Virgin Media
Gary Barlow and Benedict Cumberbatch are to feature in YouView’s £10m launch advertising campaign this weekend, as the long-delayed video-on-demand service attempts to convince consumers that it represents the future of TV.
YouView – a joint venture between the BBC, ITV, BT, Channel 4, Channel 5, Arqiva and TalkTalk – aims to replace Freeview as a subscription-free interactive TV service to rival pay-TV giants BSkyB and Virgin Media.
The launch campaign will focus heavily on TV advertising. Spots have been bought during ITV1’s The X Factor on Saturday with ads running simultaneously on Channel 4 and Channel 5, supported by a national newspaper and poster campaign.
YouView’s TV ad features stars and characters from the biggest shows the venture partners air – including The X Factor’s Barlow, Sherlock’s Cumberbatch, Doctor Who’s Daleks, , Dallas’s Larry Hagman and Downton Abbey – seen projected on buildings across the UK.
Look at the fucking 4th row!!!!!
SHERLOCK AT THE EMMY’S
Yep and it’s not even photoshopped (yes I looked to see if it was ahah).
So an aisle seat for reaching the stage quicker?)
Has anyone come across the video of this interview?
Is it on the DVD extras perhaps? Looks like the sort of thing that crops up on Making Of featurettes.
If memory serves, there is a “making of” on the DVD, but Benedict is BARELY in it. This was probably the best screen shot anyone could get.
He’s in the ‘making of’ indeed but not on the region 2 DVD I think! I can upload the clip to youtube later. He’s in it like 2 minutes? That’s enough to get a good screenshot.
Parade’s End finale preview http://wp.me/p2kskB-ba
BBC2, Friday, 21 September 9pm
I’m going to miss Parade’s End. And the debate it’s spawned over whether it’s any good or not.
I’d admit the first episode was uneven, but the rest was among the very best British drama. It’s been closer to the glory of Brideshead Revisited than the flimsiness of Downton Abbey.
I shall miss the restrained grimaces of Christopher Tietjens. His gurning jaw and flitting eyes saying more than even Stoppard’s brilliant script could. I’ll even miss the slightly insipid, longing pouts of Miss Wannop. And most definitely the exciting whiff of scandal that follows Sylvia’s every smile. She got all the best lines.
In the concluding episode, we finally see the end of parade. The end of a senseless and barbaric war that has turned men into monsters. And mad monsters at that. The hypocrisy of this golden era when manners and protocol meant more than life or truth is laid bare, but only behind its curtain.
Also laid bare is Sylvia’s amorality, finally less charming when seen for what it is, though I’d always preferred it to Valentine’s earnestness.
But it is also the end of an era, or so it seems to Ford Madox Ford. Tietjens is the last decent man in England, yet his wife had good reason to find that decency cruel. Tietjens thinks ‘doing the decent thing’ is all over and he alone seems to mourn it. The decent thing is all about other people’s perceptions. It’s almost as sad as the war.
The end of the era heralds a new one, certainly for women. Even then it was clear they were at the beginning of a struggle, not an end. If only there was someone worth voting for.
It’s not only for selfish reasons that I wish Parade’s End had been longer. While Stoppard and director Susanna White do manage to balance poetic dialogue with space and silence that speaks volumes, it can only be for budgetary reasons that we only get five episodes from Ford’s giant tome, while we are ‘treated’ to at least three series of Downton’s froth.
It’s not very often we get such a rich cast, combined with such a crafted script and depth of character. We can only hope the Beeb and HBO go on more dates together.
Grace Dent complained that it was the best Sunday night TV, inexplicably shown on a Friday. Who watches TV when it’s broadcast? Linear TV is dead, remember? The TV schedule is your slave not your master.
It’s from the Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy still photography exhibit in Los Angeles on February 23, 2012.
