The Guardian interviews the screenwriter Sally Wainwright (author of Sparkhouse in 2002 and the 2006 BBC Radio 4 Cold in the Earth and Fifteen Wild Decembers) concerning the second series of Last Tango in Halifax and she reveals what could be a very exciting new project:
Then there's a new biopic about the Brontë sisters, again for the BBC.

(Caroline Rees)ActuaLitté (France) reviews Itinèraire d'un poète apache by Guillaume Staelens:
C'est à cette conviction ténue que se raccroche désespérément le personnage, l'image de Cronos mangeant ses propres enfants, de la chute de la maison Usher, d'un cataclysme final à la Emily Brontë ou à la Stephen King. (Julien Pessot).A corgi compared to Jane Eyre? In Tuscaloosa News:
I find it harder to pigeonhole her little sister and littermate, Lola. The newest addition to our corgi family, Lola is a little like Elizabeth Bennett in “Pride and Prejudice” and a little like Jane Eyre, to say nothing of Harriet Welsch in “Harriet the Spy.” (Ben Windham)DVD Talk reviews Byzantium by Neil Jordan:
