Criminal Revelations...

It's been a long-kept "secret" that author Sam Bourne is actually award-winning journalist Jonathan Freedland. But he has stepped out from Sam's shadow to pen his own thriller THE THIRD WOMAN (HarperCollins July 2015).
Jonathan Freedland says: 'I've loved writing as Sam Bourne and been hugely grateful for the engagement of Sam Bourne readers with my last five novels. But THE THIRD WOMAN draws on my experience as a journalist in a new way. It feels like the right moment to step forward and say "This is mine."'
I thought the title was a bit familiar and, in fact, it was one used by Mark Mills in December 2010 plus a couple more authors. As yet, there is no cover reveal. You can pre-order from Amazon.


Remember Tom Rob Smith's debut CHILD 44?  Well now you can see it on the big screen starring man of the moment, Tom Hardy as as Leo Demidov. Supported by Gary Oldman, and Noomi Rapace. Directed by Daniel Espinosa. US release date is set for April 2015.

What's all the fuss about BROADCHURCH?  I started watching Season 2 this week and had to switch off. The music was too loud and overpowering, the actors were mumbling and not having seen Season 1, I didn't have a clue what was going on as there were no recaps. Is it me, or am I just getting older and grumpier?
Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman are reprising their roles as Sherlock Holmes and John Watson for a 2015 Christmas special and a fourth series to air next year.
Element-hairy, my dear Watson!
Filming is now underway on the #Sherlock Special, coming to @BBCOne in 2015.

The BBC officially confirmed that filming had commenced today (January 6), and alluded to a member of the cast perhaps sporting a new moustache.
