HERE’S a blast from the past. Goodnight Sweetheart will return for a one-off special, and Nicholas Lyndhurst has been confirmed to star once again.
I can report that the time-travelling sitcom is being brought back as part of the BBC’s 60 years of laughter celebration. Creators Laurence Marks and Maurice Gran have penned the new episode, which sees Lyndhurst’s character Gary Sparrow unexpectedly finding himself in the 21st century.
The original run saw Gary travel between his current time, the 1990s, and the ‘40s. The finale ended with Gary trapped in the past as the time portal closed. It aired between 1993 and 1999.
BBC One has confirmed that Poldark will get a third series – before the second has even aired.
Aidan Turner will be back as Ross Poldark in late 2016, once more turning the nation weak at the knees with 10 new episodes.
He’ll then start shooting on the third run – again 10 episodes, to air on BBC One in 2017. Eleanor Tomlinson will also be reprising her role as Ross’s wife Demelza in the third series, adapted by Debbie Horsfield from Winston Graham’s novels.
The third series will be set in 1794, with Ross traversing new battles, new family and new loves(!) as the French revolution casts a shadow over life in Cornwall.
