The Brit(ish) List

Lots of bio pics this week. Mr Roth, Mr Radcliffe and Mr Hardy are all playing real people. In glorious unrealiity Mr Cumberbatch is playing a dragon, Mr Freeman is playing a hobbit, Mr Hiddleston is playing a god and Mr Smith and Mr Tennant are playing the same person. Much more my cup of tea, truth be told (more on that at the blog).

Just links this week again, folks (sorry, still being the day job's bitch right now) but there are some pretty cool interviews to amuse and inform. Read on...
