Meet the cast of Midsomer Murders series 20

Andrew-Gower-Midsomer-Murders-62cb1ae

Radio Times introduced the cast of the new Midsomer Murders episode “Send in the Clowns” in an article and treated Andrew Gower‘s fans with this new production still from the episode.

They also had the following information about Andrew’s character Harry Ferabbee and about Andrew himself:

Who is Harry Ferabbee? Harry is Joe’s son who works with him at the circus, but is frustrated and worried by their dramatically falling trade. He thinks that their brand needs a major revamp, but his father routinely dismisses his ideas.

What else has Andrew Gower been in? He is probably best known for playing Charles Stuart in the second season of time travel drama Outlander, but has also appeared on BBC One hit Poldark and big-budget Amazon fantasy series Carnival Row.

Andrew is joined in the episode by fellow Being Human alumni Jason Watkins, Outlander‘s “Mrs Fitz” Annette Badland and a few more exciting guest stars. Find more about them here.

“Send in the Clowns” airs next Tuesday, 14 January 2020, at 8:00pm on ITV in the UK!

Andrew Gower LFCC2020

As an early Christmas present for his fans, Showmaster’s London Film & Comic Con announced Andrew Gower today as one of their guests for their summer edition.

Miss Scarlet and The Duke at ATF Singapore

contentasia.tv_20191117132604.png

A&E Networks are also presenting Miss Scarlet and The Duke to the Asian market. According to Content Asia the upcoming period crime drama is part of the network’s catalogue for the Asia TV Market and Forum (ATF), “the region’s leading entertainment content event”.  Similar to MIPCOM, ATF is used by the industry to present new content for international distribution.

In the run-up to this year’s ATF, held from 3 – 6 December 2019 in Singapore, Content Asia included Miss Scarlet and The Duke in their list of “Must See” shows for the coming year.

Another female-led PI story with a fiery mis-matched duo at its core…

Set in the same 1880s London society that gave rise to Jack the Ripper, this six-episode hour-long British detective drama features headstrong heroine, Eliza Scarlet (played by Kate Phillips from “Peaky Blinders”), who takes over her father’s detective agency when he dies.

In a world where women’s options are limited, she ties up with Scotland Yard Detective Inspector William Wellington (aka The Duke, a drinker, gambler, and womaniser), played by Stuart Martin.

Eliza has always been more interested in running her late father’s detective agency than behaving like a proper lady. But nothing has prepared her for the dangers she is about to face as a woman in the murder investigation trade…

Best of luck to show creator Rachael New and her team at ATF, and we hope we can share more news, release dates and promo material with you soon. The first trailer for Miss Scarlet and The Duke was released last week, including two scenes with Andrew Gower as Rupert Parker.

Miss Scarlet and The Duke in Australia

elizadukestill01

Exciting news for our followers “down under”: Australian network Seven have announced the addition of Miss Scarlet and The Duke to their 2020 schedule at its annual 7Upfronts in Sydney today. No exact date has been given yet for the series, which is expected to air on the American PBS network in early 2020, but – as always – we will keep you informed as soon as we find out more!

MISS SCARLET AND THE DUKE
Set in the same 1880s London society that gave rise to Jack the Ripper, this British detective drama features a fearless, independent heroine played by Kate Phillips (Peaky Blinders, The Crown). With her inquisitive mind, Miss Scarlet has always been more interested in running her late father’s detective agency than behaving like a proper lady. But nothing has prepared her for the dangers she is about to face as a woman in the murder investigation trade. From prolific British writer Rachael New comes this fresh crime drama about the first ever female detective in 19th century London. MISS SCARLET AND THE DUKE is produced by Element 8 Entertainment.

Carnival Row Season 2: Filming To Be Halted To Plan Changes

vlcsnap-2019-09-02-22h17m43s765

As previously speculated, a delay in production of season 2 of Carnival Row seems more likely now, after the major shake up that occured earlier this month.

International Business Times states that new showrunner Erik Oleson “may decide on where he wants to take the story.” Screen Rant reports that “the show will take a short break to allow the new showrunner a chance to give his inputs and possibly take the show in a new direction if required”.

This is not the first major behind the scenes change that Carnival Row has gone through.

In January 2015 Amazon Studios signed a development deal for the series with Guillermo del Toro on board as a co-writer, executive producer, and director. Travis Beacham, the writer of the original spec script A Killing on Carnival Row, and TV veteran René Echevarria, were to act as co-creators and executive producers.

In May 2017, production was finally given a series order but at that point del Toro had stepped away from the project due to scheduling conflicts and Paul McGuigan took over from him. However, only 6 months later, McGuigan was replaced by Jon Amiel.

Co-creator Echevarria stayed as showrunner for most of season 1 but this position evenually went to Marc Guggenheim who oversaw the season 1 reshoots.

The recent changes had Guggenheim step down as showrunner to focus on other projects (but he will remain a consultant on the show) and the original creator Travis Beacham leave the project completely due to “creative differences” (he will be still credited as executive producer but in title only).

We can only hope that all these changes will have a solely positive effect on Carnival Row, and that the release of season 2 (expected for summer 2021) will not be delayed too much.

You can catch season 1 of Carnival Row on Amazon Prime (it’s included in your Prime membership or you can sign up for a free trial month) and enjoy Andrew Gower‘s portrayal of Ezra Spurnrose (who is confirmed to reprise his role in season 2).

Carnival Row Season 2 – What we know so far

carnival_row_chair

Pre-production for season 2 of Carnival Row is well underway but what – and when! – can we expect to find out what’s in store for our favourite characters.

Showrunners Travis Beacham and Marc Guggenheim have recently teased a few details in an interview with Tyler Aquilina (Entertainment Weekly).

We advise you to not continue reading if you haven’t finished watching season 1 on Amazon Prime yet or want to remeain spoiler free for season 2!


spoilerspace.png

After the explosive season 1 finale, what will happen to Philo and Vignette?

[Philo] is a man without a country. […] he’s not human enough for the humans, but he’s not fae enough for the fae. He kind of exists in this sort of status Twilight Zone. Not to mention the fact that, because of this decision, he has relinquished his badge. So this cloak of authority that he used to have is no longer there. […]

When we see Vignette again at the start of season 2, she’s the same character, in very, very, very different circumstances than we left her in. […] don’t forget that Vignette joined the Black Raven in season 1. So without spoiling too much, it’s very safe to say the Black Raven story line is very much Vignette’s story line.

And what’s next for our other star-crossed lovers Imogen and Agreus?

[A]s we’re putting some characters behind the wall, it felt necessary to look outwards with other stories. With Imogen and Agreus, we’re definitely looking outwards, and just from a purely visual standpoint, they’re going to find themselves in some very different environments in season 2. And they’re going to end up in some places that we’ve heard of and are probably curious about.

Will there be more politics?

[T]here’s going to be some sort of geopolitical tensions that are growing, that are sort of unrelated to what’s going on in the ghetto, but will dovetail into Imogen and Agreus’s story, and into what’s going on in Balefire Hall. And just in general in season 2, things get a bit more complex, and we start having a bit more fun with everything.

Read the complete interview here!


So when can we expect to see season 2?

There hasn’t been an official anouncement from Amazon or the showrunners yet but judging by the production schedule season 1 went through a release date for the new episode some time in the first half of 2021 seems plausible.

(Season 1 began filming in September 2017 and was originally supposed to come out in early 2019, even before extensive re-shoots caused the delay.)

Carnival Row: Getting Ready for Season 2

All the signs are all pointing in the right direction: season 2 of Carnival Row is coming, and, as they did during the production of season 1, the cast and crew are keeping us updated with Behind the Scenes photos via their social media accounts.

After scouting for some new locations that will be featured in the new season, the cast are starting to arrive at the Barrandov Studios in Prague (Czech Republic), where most of season 1 was filmed.

Andrew Gower‘s involvement in season 2 isn’t confirmed yet but we are rather confident that we haven’t seen the last of his character Ezra Spurnrose.

CarterMatt: Poldark season 5 spoilers: Is an Outlander actor coming on board?

poldark-logo

CarterMatt has picked up on Andrew Gower‘s recent Instagram post in which he revealed his part in the upcoming final season of period drama Poldark. (see our post about it here)

Our favourite part of their article?

If you haven’t watching Outlanderthen there is a reasonably good chance you’re familiar with [Andrew] Gower from some of his other work. After all, he has appeared in such other series including AD: The Bible Continues, Being Human, The White Queenand more. This is someone who’s got a rather-impressive resume of TV work behind him and while he’s not going to have a chance to continue whatever he does on Poldark, there is still an opportunity for more good stuff down the line.

Capital Ep 01

CA01x32

Capital Episode 1

To the outside world, the residents of Pepys Road have it all. House prices have rocketed, creating a street of multi-million pound homes… However, life’s other problems don’t go away just because you’ve won the property lottery.

Petunia (Gemma Jones) is growing increasingly worried that her dizzy spells don’t seem to be going away, but doesn’t want to turn to her daughter Mary (Lesley Sharp) for help. Meanwhile, Roger (Toby Jones), banker and supposed family man, is hoping that this year’s bonus might bring him and his wife Arabella (Rachael Stirling) happiness – or at least be able to cover the cost of Bogdan (Radoslaw Kaim) and all the renovations he’s been doing on the house. Mark (Andrew Gower), Roger’s young and ambitious assistant at the bank, takes matters into his own hands when his ideas aren’t met with approval.

Elsewhere, local shopkeeper Ahmed (Adeel Akhtar) is hoping that his brothers Shahid (Danny Ashok) and Usman (Hamza Jeetooa) might finally start to take some responsibility and make something of their lives. While Quentina (Wunmi Mosaku), traffic warden and asylum seeker, is just looking to keep her head down – while being abused by the Pepys Road residents she is ticketing. All of this is watched by the successful but secretive Smitty (Robert Emms), an artist who shares his own personal connection to Pepys Road.

Normal life on a normal street. At least, that is, until a mysterious note bearing the words ‘we want what you have’ is dropped through every letterbox. Who has sent the message? And are they still watching the residents? Before long, the ripples caused by the note will have touched every corner of the community – and the residents of Pepys Road will see their lives transformed. *

A.D. – The Bible will not continue

A.D. The Bible Continues- Season 1

According to Variety, NBC has cancelled A.D. – The Bible Continues after only one season.  The overall viewing numbers of the biblical drama, which picked up the story of the 2013 miniseries The Bible, were too low for NBC to renew it for another season.

Producers Mark Burnett and Roma Downey are planning to return to the story on their own digital channel, set to be launched in late 2016 or early 2017. However it is unlikely that another season of A.D. will also mean a return of Roman emperor Caligula, the character portrayed by Andrew Gower.

A.D. Ep 9 Saul’s Return

AD09x073

A.D. – The Bible Continues Ep. 9 “Saul’s Return”

Following his ascent to the Roman throne, Caligula (Andrew Gower) starts a reign of terror over those in his immediate vicinity. Feeling that he isn’t given the appropriate respect and love from his subjects, he demands that statues of him are erected all over the Roman empire, including one with the Temple of Jerusalem.

Pilate (Vincent Regan) and the High Priest Caiaphas (Richard Coyle) know that such a desecration will cause a riot among the Jewish population, and that they need to work together to avoid bloodshed. However, there are also some among the former political leaders of Jerusalem that see a chance to restore the old order of things after the looming rebellion.

Saul (Emmett J Scanlan) returns to Jerusalem a changed man but is met with suspicion among the disciples who used to be his enemies. He needs to convince them of his miraculously changed intentions as well as leave hiding and start preaching Jesus’ words. While he and Peter (Adam Levy) come to an understanding, the disciples learn from Mary Magdalene (Chipo Chung) about the arrival of Caligula’s statue.

A.D. Ep 8 The Road to Damascus

AD08x032.png

A.D. – The Bible Continues Ep. 8 “The Road to Damascus”

In Pilate’s Palace in Jerusalem the presence of Caligula (Andrew Gower) and his Jewish friend Agrippa (Michael Peluso) causes unrest for all members of the household, servants and masters alike. After another insult, Pilate (Vincent Regan) decides to confront Caligula about his behaviour but hesitates in the last minute to execute his plan.

Jesus’ disciples are still hiding in Jerusalem fearing for their lives, when they receive word that Philip (Joe Dixon) needs their help in Samaria. Saul Saul (Emmett J. Scanlan) is on his way to Damascus when he is faced with a life altering vision of Jesus Christ. Blinded and a changed man, he is later visited by the Christian Ananias (Nicholas Sidi), who heals and baptizes him.

Back in the palace, Pilate and his wife Claudia (Joanne Whalley) are looking forward to their new life in Rome, which is promised to them by Emperor Tiberius (Kenneth Cranham), when news reaches them that Tiberius has passed away “peacefully in his sleep”. His successor Caligula returns to Jerusalem to demonstrate his newly gained power.

A.D. Ep 7 The Visit

AD07x013-X2.png

A.D. – The Bible Continues Ep. 7 “The Visit”

Biblical drama A.D. – The Bible Continues is a sequel to the NBC hit TV show The Bible by producers Roma Downey and Mark Burnett. It picks up immediately after the Crucifixion of Jesus Christ and shows the impact his death had on his disciples as well as the religious and political leaders of the time.

Jewish persecutor Saul (Emmett J. Scanlan) is targeting Peter (Adam Levy), a former fisherman from Bethsaida and one of the followers of the recently executed Jesus. Fearing for his life, Philip (Joe Dixon) has fled Jerusalem. After watching “Simon the Sorcerer” (Stephen Walters) perform a “miracle” in a market, he decides to show the people of Samaria the true power of God.

The imminent visit of Roman Emperor Tiberius (Kenneth Cranham) threatens Pilate’s (Vincent Regan) position as Governor of Jerusalem. Tiberius is accompanied by his “debauched and dangerous” nephew Caligula (Andrew Gower), who on a nightly stroll through the city reveals his quick temper and violent nature.

Andrew featured in Omnia

BH406x105.png

The lovely ladies at Omnia, a free online zine, have included an article about Andrew Gower in their latest edition.

He’s very unassuming, small and skinny and rather awkward, but he’s an excellent actor, very emotive and funny, and absolutely deserving of everything good that comes his way.

You said it Daisy and Nancy!
