2015 preview: TV

ITV kicks off the year with the return of Broadchurch. Will we all be as hooked again? We’ll have to wait and see.

Also in the New Year, The Voice returns to BBC1 with Rita Ora replacing Kylie Minogue in the judges chair.

Kylie was such a hit last year, can Rita emulate her success? And can the show ever launch a successful pop star?

There are some great dramas due on our screens in 2015. I’m really excited for the BBC’s adaptation of Hilary Mantel’s Booker Prize-winning Wolf Hall.

It stars Mark Rylance and Damian Lewis as Thomas Cromwell and Henry VIII. The books are fantastic and I’m really intrigued to see if the TV version will be the same.

The BBC are also turning to classic literature for a new adaptation of Tolstoy’s War and Peace.

Paul Dano, Lily James and James Norton will star in the series which will be shown as six one hour episodes. Filming hasn’t started yet so I expect it’ll be on screens towards the end of 2015.

And finally, you’ll have to forgive me for this, but I am already excited about the return of Sherlock!

Filming on the special one-off episode begins on January 6 with three new episodes due to be made later in the year, I suspect getting Martin and Benedict at the same time is probably pretty tough these days.

Anyway as Moriarty would say ‘did you miss me?’ Yes!!

Even more Broadchurch

This week it’s been announced the second series of Broadchurch will begin on ITV on January 5.

I was absolutely hooked by the first series, I thought it was a brilliant drama, even if we did all guess whodunnit!

Well now there’s more good news for fans as a series of digital short stories tied into each episode of the new series are being released.

Each e-book will be released at midnight following the Monday night episode and will include characters featured in that night’s episode, delving deeper into their lives.

I think this is a brilliant idea!
