Humpty Dumpty Hits Target

After only two days, Andrew Gower’s and Stephen Walters’ Kickstarter campaign for “Humpty Dumpty”, a documentary about fellow Liverpoolian musician Tommy Quickly, hits its projected target of £ 10,000.

Andrew Gower thanked the fans and his co-stars, who supported the campaign in this video on Twitter, saying he and Stephen Walters were “blown away” by the response.

The Kickstarter page will remain open until 8 July 2017 and more support, financially and by sharing the link on Social Media, is appreciated and will be a “huge help” to Andrew and Stephen and their micro-budget film.

No second season for The White Queen

Lord Strange - The White Queen

Lord Strange – The White Queen

The BBC has confirmed that there will be no second season of The White Queen, stating “it was never actually conceived as a returnable series” (source).

This will come as a blow to Andrew Gower’s fans who had hoped to see more of Lord Strange in a potential second season, following his short but sweet scenes as Lord Stanley’s (Rupert Graves) son in episodes 9 and 10.

What are your thoughts on this? Do you think the BBC would have had a hit on its hands if it had adapted the book ‘The White Princess‘, about Henry Tudor and Elizabeth of York? Or did the historical inaccuracies mean the series was always doomed?

The White Queen to air in May on the BBC?

The Telegraph have today reported that, while there is no confirmed air date, The White Queen is due to air this month on the BBC.

The Programme Highlights have been released up to and including week 20 (11th – 17th May) on the BBC Media Centre website; given that this programme will be fairly high profile we believe that the BBC would have included The White Queen in their highlights, so it is likely that it will air after that. Our guess is that it will take the time slot about to be released by The Village (concluding Sunday 5th May at 9pm), with the BAFTAs taking that slot in week 20.

So, our prediction, to be taken with a massive pinch of salt – Sunday 19th May at 9pm. Let’s see if we’re right!

Murdoch Mysteries episode synopsis

Murdoch Mysteries

Alibi have released an episode synopsis for “A Study in Sherlock”, the Murdoch Mysteries episode that Andrew has a role in.

S6 E4/13. A Study In Sherlock. A botched armoured coach robbery leaves the driver of the getaway carriage dead in the streets.

READ MORE

The episode will air on Alibi in the UK on Monday February 25th and on CBC in Canada on Monday 28th January.

Andrew’s Murdoch Mysteries episode confirmed

According to Andrew’s agent’s website (and as previously guessed), he will be appearing in the Murdoch Mysteries episode “A Study in Sherlock” on the Alibi Channel in the UK on February 25th 2013. This means it is episode 4 as stated on IMDb, and it will air first in Canada on January 28th 2013.

Hopefully we should see some promotional images for the episode in the New Year, and we’ll get them added to the site as soon as possible.

Murdoch Mysteries season 6 UK air date

The UK air date for season 6 of Murdoch Mysteries has now been confirmed as Monday February 4th at 9pm on the Alibi Channel. We do not know which episode Andrew will be appearing in; IMDb has an episode entitled “A Study in Sherlock” listed as episode 4 but we will confirm this when we know more.

OK Tata Bye Bye

Ok Tata Bye Bye

On Friday 16th November 2012, Andrew took part in a rehearsed reading of the play OK Tata Bye Bye at the Royal Court Theatre.

Two film makers from the UK set out to document the lives of rural Indian women who earn their money along the highway, delving into the unchartered territory of sex workers and truck drivers in a village where prostitution is legal.

Misfits 404 reviews

Andrew Gower…felt rather wasted here in the small (even if significant) part of Jake; he was as charismatic as ever, but got little to do

Simon’s Incoherent Blog, 19th November 2012

Andrew Gower is underused here, but happily brings the same memorable creepiness to his character that he did to Being Human’s Cutler

Digital Spy, 19th November 2012

Jake…doesn’t get much to do here, but he still makes an impact.

SFX, 18th November 2012

The excellent Andrew Gower…an underused Andrew Gower

Cultbox, 18th November 2012

Poor Andrew Gower has a crap time in every show he’s in. Shot, resurrected and then bludgeoned to death with a rolling pin. Ouch!

Billie Doux

Clip of Andrew in Misfits ep 404

E4 have released a clip of Andrew’s character Jake and Curtis Donovan (Nathan Stewart-Jarrett) in Misfits season 4 episode 4. It gives us an idea of the part Jake will play in the ongoing story between Lola (Lucy Gaskell) and Curtis.

You can watch the clip below. The episode airs this Sunday, 18th November, at 10pm on E4.

Monroe axed

Monroe season two

ITV have dropped Monroe after two series, according to Broadcast Now.

An ITV spokeswoman said: “We can confirm that Monroe will not be returning. It has been a fantastic series, which we have been proud to have on the channel, but continuing to refresh our slate is an important part of the creative process for ITV Drama.”

We wish Andrew all the best with his future roles, along with the whole wonderful cast.

Sign the petition to get Monroe renewed for a third season!

Murdoch Mysteries season 6 air date

CBC.ca have confirmed that season 6 of Murdoch Mysteries will screen in Canada from January 7th 2013.

MURDOCH MYSTERIES – Mondays at 9 p.m. (9:30 NT) beginning January 7
New to CBC this year is the one-hour, period, crime drama MURDOCH MYSTERIES, now with new never-seen episodes in its sixth season on Monday, January 7 at 9 p.m. (9:30 NT) on CBC Television. Set in the late 1890’s and early 1900’s, critically acclaimed series MURDOCH MYSTERIES stars Yannick Bisson as William Murdoch, a handsome young detective using radical forensic techniques for the time, to solve some of the city’s most gruesome murders. (Source)

We know from Andrew’s Spotlight CV that he has filmed the part of David Kingsley / Sherlock Holmes, and IMDb has an episode entitled A Study in Sherlock listed as episode 4 of season 6. Therefore, we can assume from this that Andrew’s episode will screen in Canada on January 28th 2013; however we will confirm this as soon as we can.

Murdoch Mysteries screens on the Alibi Channel in the UK, there is no confirmed date for season 6 as yet but again, we will confirm as soon as possible.

First image of Andrew as ‘Jake’ in Misfits

Huge thanks to Charles at Channel 4 press for providing us with this image of Andrew as ‘Jake’ in Misfits 404.

Only 11 days to go until the episode airs!

Andrew to play another supernatural?!

Could this be the role Andrew wil play in Misfits next weekend? Channel 4 Press have posted the episode guide to Misfits 404 where Andrew plays a character called Jake:

When Curtis’s new girlfriend Lola disappears, Curtis discovers that she was never the person she claimed to be. As he investigates further, he is forced to use his power to bring someone back from the dead, with disastrous results. Meanwhile, Rudy and Finn have a disagreement about their shared living arrangements at the community centre, and Jess finally gets closer to mysterious barman Alex.

Hopefully there will be some indication at the end of this week’s episode – we’ll screencap if there is and get them uploaded. The episode will screen on E4 on Sunday 18th November.

Tom Hiddleston, Monica Dolan, Jimmy Akingbola, Christine Bottomley, Riz Ahmed, Asheq Akhtar and Noma Dumezweni are also involved in the film.

There are very few details available about the film at present as it is still in post-production, but you can follow the Twitter account for updates, and we will of course update here when any more news is released.

Misfits returns Sunday 28th October

Channel 4‘s press page has been updated with information for week 44, listing the return of Misfits to E4 on Sunday 28th October at 10pm.

This means that Andrew’s appearance (in episode 4) as Jake will be on Sunday 18th November.

The episode 1 overview is as follows:

Misfits is back for the fourth series and new gang members Finn and Jess are zipping up those iconic orange jumpsuits for their first day of community service and meeting their probation worker… or is it their new probation worker? Things become stranger still when a man stumbles into the community centre with a briefcase and a power that infects them all. The truth unravels in a series of tense flashbacks and it’s soon clear to Finn and Jess that there’s more to community service than scrubbing off graffiti and picking up litter…

We will add any images of Andrew in his role as soon as they become available.

Edited Thursday 18th October – E4’s Misfits Twitter account has now also confirmed Sunday 28th October as the transmission date for episode 1. You can get a GetGlue sticker for Misfits here.

Channel 4’s press site have the press shots for season 4 available in their week 44 gallery, indicating that the series will begin week commencing 27th October, and Andrew’s episode will be week commencing 17th November.

Monroe season 2 starts tonight (Monday 1st October) on ITV at 9pm. There have been lots of previews in the press today and everything we’ve seen has been hugely positive.

The Telegraph says that Monroe returns with renewed vigour and trolley-loads of whip-sharp dialogue while the Metro calls it a slick and enjoyable drama. GQ pushes aside the House comparisons, saying that when it started last year, [it] drew understandable comparisons to the recently-departed House…Thankfully, Monroe has developed into a compelling drama – primarily thanks to James Nesbitt’s confidence in the lead role.

Journalist Ian Wylie has today posted a transcript of the recent press launch for Monroe on his website, you can read it here.

James Nesbitt, Tracy Ann-Oberman, Sarah Parish and Neil Pearson appeared on Daybreak this morning to talk about the new series, you can watch it again on ITV Player; it’s around 1 hour 37 minutes in. Sarah Parish also appeared on This Morning around 11.45am, which you can watch again here.

Murdoch Mysteries Season 6 preview

A preview of season six of Murdoch Mysteries has been added to the MIP ITV website, with a short video and an overview of the season.

In series six of the one-hour drama, Detective Murdoch tries to clear the name of a young Winston Churchill after his visit to Canada goes awry; a dangerous madman threatens to unleash a deadly toxic gas attack; and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle makes an appearance when his supposedly fictional creation, Detective Sherlock Holmes, becomes entangled in a violent robbery.

We know from Andrew’s Spotlight CV and his agent’s website that he has filmed the part of Sherlock Holmes – fingers crossed it won’t be too long before we see some video of the part.

You can see the preview video and read more here.

Andrew visits Innocent Drinks

Andrew posted on his Twitter account last week about a visit he made to Innocent Drinks HQ, where he spent the day making smoothies. We have been given permission to share this picture of Andrew and Innocent’s Tim enjoying their smoothies!

New Monroe cast photo – TV & Satellite Week

Thanks to Tom-Riley.com for the image, please head over there to read the article too.

Andrew featured in Omnia

Being Human

The lovely ladies at Omnia, a free online zine, have included an article about Andrew in their latest edition.

He’s very unassuming, small and skinny andrather awkward, but he’s an excellent actor, very emotive and funny, and absolutely deserving of everything good that comes his way.

You said it Daisy and Nancy! You can read it here.

Monroe season 2 confirmed for 1st October

ITV have now confirmed on their press centre page that the new season of Monroe will start on Monday 1st October at 9pm. The page has a fairly long synopsis of episode one.

Monroe season 2 press pack

ITV have made their press pack available for the new season of Monroe, which is likely to air on Monday 1st October at 9pm.

There is a small quote from Andrew, who plays Dr Mullery, which is reproduced below, and also an episode synopsis for each scene which is absolutely full of spoilers so read it at your peril!

Andrew Gower on playing Mullery
“Mullery on the surface does not strike you as your typical surgeon…far from! But this second series allows you to see how throughout the hospital he’s actually becoming that little bit more ‘sought after’… And has the respect of his peers!
“With his new mentor and new specialty he’s more likely to speak his mind! And with that I think we discover he’s a surgeon who wears his heart on his sleeve!
“Peter Bowker writes beautiful tragic male characters and Mullery definitely falls into that bracket. Which makes him a pleasure to play!”

Dr Mullery’s role at St Matthew’s has changed since we last saw him:

Once Bremner’s cardio trainee, Mullery is now Gillespie’s registrar, specialising in general and vascular surgery. He seems slightly lost in the competitive world of surgery, but his sudden flashes of brilliance suggest that he might one day be an incredible surgeon.

It also has the cast list for each episode and we were pleased to see Karla Crome appearing in two episodes; Andrew will be appearing in the new series of Misfits with Karla (read more), whose roles in Hit and Miss and Murder: Joint Enterprise were some of our standout performances of this year.

Monroe season 2 air date?

We are still waiting for the ITV announcement (it is expected today) of the air date for season 2 of Monroe, however several avenues have stated Monday October 1st at 9pm is when we will see Dr Andrew Mullery return to our screens.

The Radio Times has popped up this morning with the 1st October air date. There is also an interview with James Nesbitt in today’s Metro newspaper that states Monroe will return on 1st October. Luke Allen-Gale, who plays Daniel Springer, has also announced it on his Twitter account.

So – looks like it’s time to put Monday 1st October at 9pm in those diaries!

ITV website updated for Monroe season two

The ITV Drama website has been updated with several cast videos and more details about the new series. There are several interviews with Andrew in the different videos alongside interviews with the rest of the cast.

There is still no screening date but it’s widely assumed that the date will be released this week.

Take a look here. We’ll update as soon as we know the screening date, which will be sometime in October.

New Monroe season 2 trailer

MIPTV have added a new trailer, brief synopsis and promo shot for season 2 of Monroe to their site. It features a couple of scenes with Andrew in, including one that looks very exciting…

Damien Molony interviewed by Spotlight

Andrew Gower as Cutler and Damien Molony as Hal in Being Human

Damien Molony has been interviewed by Spotlight about his nomination for the prize in 2011 and his career since then. There are a couple of questions about Andrew and their work together on Being Human:

Did Andrew Gower [2010 Spotlight Prize winner] try to give you any tips?

We didn’t actually shoot anything together until episode seven so we didn’t really talk about it that much. He used to give me encouragement and I would try and do the same because I think he is absolutely amazing, a brilliant actor. He goes into so much depth with his preparation. I learnt a lot from just watching him rather than him teaching me.

Read the full interview here.

Frankenstein’s Wedding beaten at BAFTAs

Mark Gatiss interview

Mark Gatiss has been interviewed by EW.com about the finale of Being Human season 4, War Child. It’s a great little interview, made all the better by the question about the trailer:

Can you explain why he’s rubbing Cutler’s face in the preview?
Because I wanted to. I said to Andrew [Gower], “I just got an idea. I should run my hand down your face and stick my finger into your mouth. Is that alright?” And he said, “Yeah, whatever you like.” So I did it. What I like about it is it’s so invasive. First of all, he has those filthy fingernails. I thought, he regards this man as less than the dirt on his shoes and he should just show it. It’s also slightly pervy. I enjoyed that.

You can watch said scene here:

Hmmmmm….

Toby Whithouse talks Cutler

EW.com have published an interview with Being Human executive producer Toby Whithouse about Being Human season 4, episode 7, Making History, a very Cutler-oriented episode.

Does Cutler have any humanity left in him?
From the moment that he sees his wife killed, that’s it. It’s been interesting to look at the reactions to him on online. I’m very pleased to see that Cutler has a lot of fans. There are also quite a lot of people who are hoping that there is a bit of decency left in him and that he will redeem himself. That’s something Andrew [Gower] imbued in the character, because it wasn’t on the page. That people are having questions about him is a testament to his performance, because in my mind, the best way of telling if Cutler is lying is if his lips are moving.

Read the full interview here.

There’s also a lovely, spoilery review of the episode on the Independent website, full of gushing praise for Andrew. And another gushing review on Cultfix, this time spoiler free.

Entertainment Weekly interview

Entertainment Weekly have posted an interview with Andrew about episode 6 of Being Human season 4 (Puppy Love). The interview covers Cutler’s backstory, his last vestiges of humanity and how he based some of Cutler’s mannerisms on Ian Curtis of Joy Division.

Cutler likes other people to do the work for him—and manipulation is one of the things he’s very good at.

Read the full interview here.

Q&A with Toby Whithouse

The BBC’s Being Human blog has posted the results of a fan Q&A with Toby Whithouse. Several of the questions involved Cutler’s character and his subsequent demise, for example:

 

 

 

 

However, it’s the revelation that we won’t see Cutler again that is the most shocking…


 

 
We  live in hope that…

Cutler…Nick Cutler

Another new clip from the BBC, where Cutler turns up late to meet the old ones.

Behind the scenes S04E07

Another YouTube clip from the BBC, this time looking behind the scenes at the Nightclub in episode 7. Bizarrely, considering this is such a big Cutler moment, we only see Andrew right at the very end, but it’s still worth a watch to see how the scene was put together.

The War Child preview

Cultfix.com have uploaded the end credits preview to episode 8, The War Child, containing an amazing Mr. Snow/Cutler scene that has to be seen to be believed…

It’s going to be good…
