Tired and under stress – but is that all? (Picture: BBC)

In tonights Holby City we discovered what Ric Griffin (Hugh Quarshie) believes to be his problem. Hes worried that he might have dementia. Like Duffy in Casualty, he was looking up the symptoms on the internet, and because Duffys fears turned out to be real, it makes me think that Ric probably doesnt have dementia at all. But theres no doubt that theres something wrong with him. Hes been making mistakes, confusing peoples names, forgetting the password to his computer and flying into rages at fairly minor things – and Lofty (Lee Mead), who is not a minor thing at all.

Its true hes under stress – Serena is away and so is Hanssen and also apparently anyone who could make the decision to redeploy one of the many doctors who lurk up on Darwin every week. He was under very specific pressure this week as his patient o the week was Mi Hi Tan (Hayley Lam), one of the conjoined twins he helped to separate in ground-breaking surgery in some memorable Holby episodes in 2008. Ric feels a moral responsibility for all his cases, but theres a special place in his heart for the Tan family, who revere him so much they have a picture of him on their wall at home. It was also his 65th birthday, so there was a lot going on.

I hope whatever it is thats wrong with Ric, one day hell be able to look back and see how much help and support hes been getting from Zav (Marcus Griffiths), who knows somethings wrong and, until he can get Ric to admit it, has been watching out for him and particularly for his patients.

While Zav was watching out for Ric, Fletch (Alex Walkinshaw) was looking out for Chloe (Amy Lennox) and Ange (Dawn Steele) – though it seemed for a very worrying while that hed been taken in by Evil Evan (Jack Ryder)s wheedling ways. When Evan showed up at Holby, Fletch told Chloe hed sent him packing, but then we saw Fletch and Evan enjoying a cosy drink and a bitch about the Godard women in Albies. What was Fletch playing at? Surely the King of Nurses couldnt so easily be taken in? Well no, of course, he couldnt. After accidentally spilling a drink over Evan he took the opportunity (while Evan was away cleaning himself up) to have a look on his phone. Nobody on Holby ever bothers password-protecting their phone, so he very soon found the camera app and was able to see Chloe at home doing a bit of yoga. Thank heavens thats all she was doing.

A swift phone call to Ange sent her to Chloes flat, where they found the camera. Ange and Chloe turned up at Albies so Chloe could call Evan a pathetic creep, then the police arrived. Hopefully, this is the end of Evil Evans reign of terror, and Ange thanked Fletch for his excellent efforts with a kiss – so Chloe is safe and Flange are back on again.

Retirement is going well for Bond then (Picture: MEGA)

Daniel Craig has been left bruised and bloodied on the set of Bond 25, No Time To Die.

Yep, despite retiring to Jamaica at the end of the last film, Spectre, hes definitely no longer living the quiet life.

The James Bond star is currently filming in Matera, a rocky outcrop in southern Italy and has been pictured in the middle of a brutal battle with an opponent that leaves him without a jacket and more than just a little banged up.

Production is steamrolling ahead in the country for the 25th offering of the titular character, this time directed by Cary Fukunaga.

Set pictures from earlier in September showed Craig in the same outfit, and alongside his body double so Bond fans seem to be in store for one heck of an action sequence.

Lea Seydoux has also been pictured on set, with recent pictures showing Craig and Seydoux getting to grips with one another in an intimate scene shot.

Colin Firth stars in the new trailer of The Secret Garden

The Secret Garden is being made into another film adaptation but this time its more magical and stars Colin Firth.

What more do you need?

As with any reboot, there will be a new spin on the story and just from the trailer, it seems the garden is ridiculously large.

Frances Hodgson Burnett released the classic book in 1911 and there have been a few adaptations along the way.

The last time the book was adapted for the screen was in 1993 and there was a steampunk update in 2017 but we dont think anyone wants to talk about that.

Maggie Smith and Kate Maberley starred in the 1993 adaptation and did a phenomenal job at keeping to the original book.

The young actress will also be in the Game of Thrones prequel (Picture: STUDIOCANAL
METROGRAB)
Julie Walters

However, it seems the new film might be more loosely adapted from the book, as the existence of CGI will be able to make it more exciting for fans, and it has been brought forward to 1947 England, on the eve of Partition in India, and in the aftermath of WW2 in Britain.

The new childrens movie will be introducing a lot of bright young stars who are on the rise.

Dixie Egerickx stars as Mary and she will be joined by Amir Wilson as Dickon and Edan Hayhurst as Colin.

These stars are already doing wonders with acting as Dixie will be appearing in the Game of Thrones sequel and Amir will be seen in the His Dark Material series.

Colin Firth

We cant have a ridiculous film being made without some ridiculously celebrated British actors as part of the mix.

Colin Firth (Archibald Crane) and Julie Walters (Mrs Medlock) will be playing the key adult roles, so not to worry, folks, this film will be great.

The Secret Garden hits UK cinemas on 17 April, 2020.

EXCLUSIVE: After winning an MTV Video Music Award for bringing his vision and humor to the video for Lil Nas Xs remix of “Old Town Road” with Billy Ray Cyrus, director Calmatic is looking to celebrate with a party…a House Party to be specific. The music video director will make his feature directorial debut with the forthcoming reimagining of the comedy classic House Party at New Line Cinema.

The remake from SpringHill Entertainment will be cut from the same cloth as the original 1990 comedy directed by Reginald Hudlin and starring Christopher “Kid” Reid and Christopher “Play” Martin of the rap duo Kid N Play (it was also a dance shown in the pic). The movie, which told the story of a house party to end all house parties, was drenched in 90s hip hop flair and featured Martin Lawrence and Tisha Campbell-Martin before they went on to star in the hit Fox TV series Martin.

The movie became a huge success and spawned two sequels: House Party 2 in 1991 and a third installment in 1994. The movie continued to party on with a direct-to-video sequels House Party 4: Down to the Last Minute in 2001, which did not include any of the original cast. The fifth installment House Party: Tonights the Night was released in 2012 and saw the return of Kid N Play to the franchise.
