TV News: “Underbelly,” “Who,” “IT Crowd”

Underbelly: Razor
The thirteen-episode fourth season of crime drama “Underbelly” kicks off later this year in Australia.

This year the story is ‘Razor’, which is set in Sydney in 1927 when two notorious vice queens, Tilly Devine and Kate Leigh, engaged in a very bloody battle for supremacy over an underworld built on illegal drugs, gambling, extortion and prostitution.

Filming is still underway on location in Sydney and will continue through until August. This week the Nine Network released the first promotional trailer for the show.

Doctor Who
After one hell of a cliffhanger ending in this weekend’s episode, the mid-season finale is set to air next weekend and the first promo trailer has gone online which you can watch below. There’s also a 90-second prequel webisode.

It was back in 2008 that River Song (Alex Kingston) made her first appearance on the show in the Steven Moffat-penned “Silence in the Library” episode. Along with seeing her death, we were also introduced to the question of who she really is. Three years on, it looks like we’ll finally learn that truth.

The truth behind the strange eyepatch lady will also be revealed, however the central mystery and resolution to what happened in the premiere a few weeks ago probably won’t be resolved until the second half of the season which doesn’t begin until sometime around October.

The I.T. Crowd
Graham Linehan, creator of the often hilarious British sitcom “The I.T. Crowd”, says the upcoming fifth season of the show will be its last.

Linehan tells Chortle that “I think one more series to really say goodbye to the characters and the fans. I’m not rushing into it, because I don’t want it to be a zombie serie, where the show is dead but its body is still moving around.”

He will pen the series later this year which means it probably won’t air until sometime in 2012.
