While we here in the States won't find out what happened when Sherlock Holmes jumped off that roof until January 19, at least we can get a quick glimpse from series three in this official image posted on BBC One's Facebook page.
So what happened when Sherlock Holmes jumped off the roof?
The music icon takes over for Len and performs, too
Cher! Cher! Yay! Cher! As excited as I am that Cher is on "Dancing with the Stars," I'm going to withhold any comments on her actual performance until I'm able to watch a second time on something other than a tiny computer. I think, though I will not commit to this, her singing was off. Possibly way off. But let's not go there. I want to blame my computer as long as I possibly can. And did I mention Cher is 67? Yes, she's a miracle of modern science and possibly more plastic than human at this point, but who cares? She looks great!
Also, during her performance, she doesn't move much, which seems like an odd choice for "Dancing with the Stars." Oh, wait, an obnoxious uber fan has informed me she's having foot surgery soon. She she walked down the stairs. Oh, and she's wiggling a leg. That's a relief. Anyway, let's get on with the actual dancing! As you'd expect, the stars are dancing to Cher's greatest hits. Expect a sales bump tomorrow, Cher!
Will Rothhaar gives a breakout performance
Before Lee Harvey Oswald became an indelible part of one of the darkest days in American history, he was someone whom the FBI not only didn't view as a threat -- but perceived as, well, a joke. At least that's the claim of "Killing Kennedy," the new Nat Geo movie (airs. Sun. Nov. 10 at 8:00 p.m.) about the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.
An airstrip comes perilously close to going underwater
You'd thinking it would be easier to live in Alaska when things warm up. Of course, you'd be wrong. It turns out that all that rapidly melting snow tends to flood necessary things like air landing strips. In this exclusive clip from "Life Below Zero: The Thaw" (airs Tues. Nov. 5 at 10:00 p.m. ET on Nat Geo), meet Sue, who is looking at the death of her business as well as a dearth of supplies for her community in Kavik if flood waters render her landing strip inoperable. Man, if it's not one thing it's another...
We talk with the writer/director about her new movie and more
Well, we finally found a guest whose work so moved Melinda that she started tearing up in the interview. If you haven't seen Kasi Lemmons' "Eve's Bayou," it's one of Melinda's favorite movies of all time. We discussed the 1997 film, but also Lemmons' new movie, "Black Nativity," which is based on Langston Hughes' musical of the same name.
We had a great time talking to Kasi, who walked us through her creative process, the challenges of bringing together a "dream cast," and why it's been so great to work with major talents including Forest Whitaker, Jennifer Hudson, Angela Bassett, Don Cheadle and Chiwetel Ejiofor in her directing career. If you weren't familiar with Kasi's work beyond "Silence of the Lambs" (she started her career as an actress) before this podcast, we suspect you'll be renting some movies (she also directed "Talk to Me" and "The Caveman's Valentine") and checking out "Black Nativity" after you listen. Here's the rundown:
Daniel sees an old flame, but the sparks that fly aren't pretty
That was quick, wasn't it? This week the flickering passion between Patrick and Nolan not only ignited, but furniture was actually destroyed by the raging inferno that ensued. Seriously, when your friend thinks you're dead because of the broken glassware, overturned lamps and general chaos of your lovemaking, you may want to rent a cheap hotel room or a bouncy house next time. Of course, Nolan really should assume anyone who excites him this much isn't long for the Hamptons, and guess what? Ding, ding, ding!
Kenya rips into NeNe, but that's not the big surprise
"The Real Housewives of Atlanta" is back, and amazingly, so is the entire cast. Given that Porsha's husband Kordell seemed to have a game plan in place to dump her long before she became aware of it (heck, she found out they were getting divorced via Twitter), you'd think he would have petitioned long and hard for her not to come back for a second season while he still had a say in the matter. But I wonder if he thought Porsha would just meekly accept being kicked to the curb. Gosh, she'd never air their dirty laundry on national television, would she? Hahahahahaha!
When secrets are revealed, will the Charmings be torn apart?
At long last, Ariel will be joining the "Once Upon A Time" players, and I'm hoping she'll add a lighter element to the unrelentingly dark Neverland we've been largely stuck in. While I know her story will get a twist and happy endings are hard to come by, this season has suffered from a limited amount of fresh blood (and thus, fresh stories). C'mon, mermaid, we're counting on you!
The gooniest prince on the TLC show seeks his perfect girl in Texas
Oh, "Secret Princes," (Fri. at 10:00 p.m. ET on TLC) what are we going to do with you? Prince Lorenzo de' Medici of Italy is determined to find love in the Lonestar State, but he's going about it all wrong, the silly squirrel. Actually, he may find the language barrier plays in his favor, as everyone thinks it's charming when he says he's good at the sexy, and this probably sounds even less smooth in his native tongue. In this exclusive clip, we see the man in action. We won't even comment on his neckerchief.
Watch what happens when a man's stitches blow
While this comes just one day late for Halloween, I'd like to think that this blood-spurting exclusive clip from tonight's episode of "Untold Stories of the ER" (Fri. Nov. 1 at 10:00 p.m. on Discovery Fit & Health) might extend the holiday for you just a little bit. It's not a zombie apocalypse, but it's something!
In this clip, we learn about how one patient's vomiting jag rips apart the carotid patchwork on his throat. The result is one big mess that may not be possible to fix. There's a storm in town, and the small hospital isn't equipped to help this guy, who's too unstable to move. His I.V. has come out, the nurse can't find a vein, and he's going into shock. It's a nail biter, but I'm hopeful, aren't you?
Will you be watching "Untold Stories of the ER"?
