Anna Paquin & Holliday Grainger in First Trailer for 'Tell It to the Bees'

"It's a small town, Jean." Good Deed Entertainment has released the official trailer for an indie romantic drama titled Tell It to the Bees, which premiered at the Toronto Film Festival last year. Based on Fiona Shaw's novel of the same name, the lesbian love story is set in England in the 1950s. A doctor returns to her small town to take over her father's medical practice, and falls for a mother of a lonely young boy whom she befriends. Of course, the local townspeople don't accept them being together, and their romance causes an upheaval in the town. The title refers to the bees that the doctor keeps, and the young boy she befriends who she instructs to tell his secrets to the bees, as she once did. Anna Paquin and Holliday Grainger star, with Emun Elliott, Steven Robertson, Lauren Lyle, Gregor Selkirk, and Katie Dickie. Take a look.

Channel Zero: Season Four Ratings (The Dream Door)

Channel Zero Season 2.5: This Dream Door Is Better Left Unopened

  • TVfanatic
While you weren't looking, the latest chapter of the usually thrilling Syfy series, Channel Zero, has booked its return.

In an unusual move, Dream Door is considered the second half of Channel Zero Season 2 and will be airing all six of its episodes on succeeding days beginning October 26 through October 31.

Since the premiere of Channel Zero: Candle Cove, the series has done much to prove horror can be done well on network television. The key is short, focused seasons and an anthology format.

There needed to be a bump in the road eventually, and Dream Door doesn't live up to the others.

The Dream Door installment of Channel Zero is based upon a creepypasta short story titled "Hidden Door" by Charlotte Bywater.

From what I understand, there are liberties taken with all of the stories, so this review isn't a judgment on the original story that I haven't read. It's

Joseph Baxter Sep 25, 2018

Channel Zero: The Dream Door, the fourth season of Syfy's anthology horror series, will premiere in time for Halloween.

Channel Zero Season 4 was confirmed in 2017 by Syfy, even before Season 3, titled “Butcher’s Block,” had even premiered. In case you weren't aware, this is the horror anthology series that adapts a new creepypasta, with a new story and cast each season.

"Making Channel Zero's Candle Cove and No-End House has been a terrific experience,” said showrunner Nick Antosca. “Universal Cable Productions and Syfy gave us a unique space to adapt weird cult horror stories and showcase some of the most talented independent directors out there. I'm so excited to bring more of these stories to the screen."

Antosca (Hannibal) returns as executive producer, showrunner and writer for Channel Zero Season 4 alongside executive producer Max Landis (Chronicle), with Universal Cable Productions as the studio.

Doctor Who review: 'Under the Lake' is atmospheric but flawed

Three weeks into its latest run and, despite being filleted by critics for having its ratings trampled on by big rugby men, Doctor Who is ably demonstrating its power of enormous variety, jumping from a bonkers premiere to a bleak episode two, to - this week - a throughly traditional outing.

The 'base under siege' plot - our heroes and a motley crew trapped in an enclosed space - has been a Doctor Who staple for decades. One series, back in 1967, even replicated the formula for all but one story.

Since the show's resurgence, we've again seen countless examples of the type - 2005's 'Dalek', 2006's 'The Impossible Planet / The Satan Pit', 2011's 'The Rebel Flesh / The Almost People', and more.

The latest script offering from Being Human creator Toby Whithouse, 'Under the Lake' also borrows the notion of an untranslatable language from 'The Impossible Planet / The Satan Pit', while

Doctor Who series 9: geeky spots in Under The Lake

Toby Whithouse's Under The lake is packed with references, from a 7th Doctor story through to Star Trek. Here's what we spotted...

This article contains lots and lots of spoilers for Under The Lake.

Under The Lake may not be the Dalek-filled continuity fest of the last couple of weeks, but that doesn’t mean it didn’t set our geek senses tingling. Here’s everything we were able to spot, from the obvious references to the slightly tenuous connections, from this week’s episode...

Ghosts From The Past

Under The Lake is a perfect example of what’s commonly referred to as a ‘base under siege’ story. These were a staple of the classic series, particularly during the Patrick Troughton era, not least because they meant the ever-stretched production team could save on the set budget. The first proper base-under-siege tale was William Hartnell’s final story, The Tenth Planet,

See Doctor Who head 'Under the Lake' in chilling new pictures

Expect underwater chills in this week's Doctor Who, as our Time Lord hero comes under siege from spooky spirits.

New pictures from 'Under the Lake' have been unveiled, giving us a closer look at the new episode from writer Toby Whithouse.

A classic 'base under siege' tale, 'Under the Lake' tasks the Doctor (Peter Capaldi) and Clara (Jenna Coleman) with protecting a terrified crew from a seemingly impossible threat.

What's behind these frightening events? And can the creatures haunting our heroes possibly be 100% genuine ghosts?

The Missing actor Arsher Ali, Grantchester's Morven Christie and Steven Robertson - late of Whithouse's Being Human - will all appear in the episode.

Under the Lake airs this Saturday (October 3) at 8.25pm on BBC One.

As is the tradition this year on Doctor Who, It's the first of a two-parter, with part two - 'Before the Flood' - following on October 10.

"I actually wrote a song called 'Looking for Davros' in my first punk band and I sang it like a demented Dalek. I got to present Totp back in the mid '90s and landing this role in Doctor Who completes the dream double.

"Peter is a perfect Doctor and I'm loving every minute of the experience, even the five hours in make-up. What a treat
