"Boardwalk Empire? No, never heard of it," says Frank Vincent
Closer research reveals this is the 2010 film Chicago Overcoat, repackaged for its UK DVD release in 2013. It's almost as if they were trying to capitalise on Boardwalk Empire's popularity over here. (Though it isn't especially popular over here, so nice job all round.)

I should like to draw your attention to the fact that a 29-year-old Yorkshireman called Marc Pickering is currently playing a young Nucky Thompson in Boardwalk Empire's flashback scenes, and giving the best Steve Buscemi impersonation you're likely to see.

The nine most sensitive responses to the Eastenders rape episode
I admit to not being a fountain of good ideas when it comes to this website. Which is why the opportunity to embed a load of people's tweets about a controversial episode of Eastenders is a ruddy godsend.

This is going to be great. I always loved how darkly surreal it was, and the guy who was like a reverse midget in a dream or something. Even just listening to the theme tune again brings back memories.

Five Peaky Blinders anagrams that make better titles
Peaky Blinders, while being fairly good and having the advantage of a second-season role for Tom Hardy, which will factually be brilliant, is saddled with a rubbish title.

Sorry, but all I see is Rick doing a poo in the woods. I wish I was better than this. Please don't go. I can change.

Gotham: season one, episode 1
Since the dawn of time, man has struggled with the eternal question. Should Batman be camper than a chicken, or dark and embittered, brooding in the shadows and all miffed, like? Well, here's FOX's solution: how about a bit of both? (Spoiler-free.)

This is Jere Burns. You might remember him from such TV shows as Breaking Bad, Justified and Bates Motel. And now he's inside my phone and will not leave.

Gemma Atkinson leaving Casualty, was in Casualty in first place
Former Hollyoaks sort Gemma Atkinson is to leave Casualty for the third time, sparking mild surprise among TV viewers that she was ever in it. "Oh, her out of Hollyoaks?" commented one human. "She was in Casualty, then? Wait, is that the one with the upstairs or the downstairs bit of the hospital? Which is the one that Finn off Hollyoaks was in? And Charlie, I know Charlie.
