The new Sky Entertainment Highlights advert shows a couple of new snippets from the upcoming Mad Dogs 2-part finale... including one of Quinn throwing a chair.
Watch the short clip below.
The final instalments of Mad Dogs will air Saturday 28th and Sunday 29th December, 9pm Sky 1 / HD.
The Sky Press Office has today confirmed that the two part finale of Mad Dogs will air on consecutive nights; Sunday 29th December and Monday 30th December 2013. Both shows will start at 9pm on Sky 1 and Sky 1 HD.
The programme information given in the press release is available under the button below (WARNING: contains spoilers)
Series Four will see the conclusion of our story and the completion of our journey.
Woody (Beesley), Quinn (Glenister), Baxter (Simm) and Rick (Warren) have made their way back to Blighty, although being home is anything but sweet. Picking up where they left off is not an option and, depressed and directionless, the boys feel out of place, no more so than at Baxter’s daughter’s wedding – where one of TV’s best scuffles breaks out. Rick, however, has a solution that could pocket them 2million euros apiece and turn everything around. Of course, nothing ever goes according to plan for this lot in a fitting send-off that comes full circle, neatly nodding to the most memorable moments from series past (why, hello, dead goat floating in my swimming pool) while providing closure for a set of characters it’s sad to say goodbye to.
The press office have also released the following new promotional photo from the series:
We'll keep you up to date with any further news/photos as soon as we get them from Sky, so keep an eye out!
Sony Entertainment Television have today announced that they will be repeating Life on Mars.
The show, in which DCI Sam Tyler (John Simm) is knocked down by a car and wakes up in 1973, was a massive hit when it first aired on BBC One back in 2006 and is considered by some to be Philip's "big break". He plays Sam's boss, Gene Hunt; a politically incorrect, brutal, misogynistic Detective Chief Inspector.
Watch the trailer below!
The series will begin on Wednesday 27th November at 10pm on Sony Entertainment Television (Sky ch 157, Virgin ch 193) and will air on the +1 channel (Sky ch 181) an hour later.
We have continued to add new photos to our site from the collection sent to us a few days ago. Here are the albums that have been added or updated in this second batch.
On Sunday 28th July 2013, Philip Glenister and his wife Beth Goddard attended the Audi International Polo at Guards Polo Club, Egham. Philip (who at some point had to put a tie on!) and Beth, who looked absolutely stunning, were all smiles as they watched the match and partook of the refreshments provided.
The Audi International Polo is one of the world's greatest spectator polo days. Sponsored by Audi for the first time in 2012 and part of its three-match England test match series, this great day of polo is organised by Guards Polo Club and the Hurlingham Polo Association. This year, it also included a match between England and the USA for the Westchester Cup, a trophy that has not been played for on British soil in 16 years. England won that last match back in 1997 - captained by Howard Hipwood - and were keen to replicate that performance today. And they did. England were victorious with a 12-11 win; a golden goal the only thing separating the two teams.
Also in attendance was Philip's Life on Mars co-star, John Simm and his wife Kate McGowan, Laurence Fox, Billie Piper, Matt Dawson and HRH the Prince of Wales (who presented the trophies).
You can view more photos in our dedicated Audi International Polo gallery.
We are delighted to be able to bring you two new videos from the upcoming series of Mad Dogs.
The first is a second trailer which, be warned, contains more spoilers than the first one. The second is a preview clip from series 3, episode 4 in which tensions run high between the four-some as they discuss what could have been and whose fault it was that they have ended up where they are.
Both videos can be seen on our dedicated Mad Dogs Videos page. (Scroll down to series 3.)
Philip and the rest of the cast of Mad Dogs appeared on Sky News Sunrise this morning, in an interview with Anna Jones after the press screening yesterday. We were only informed of this a few minutes before it happened so there wasn't chance to let you guys know. We can, however, bring you a photograph and a transcript of the interview.
AJ: Now the first series captivated viewers, earned critical plaudits and a BAFTA nomination. Well now it’s entering its third series and Mad Dogs is back. And they’re a great crowd, the cast of Mad Dogs; I met them yesterday, they’re four great actors, I met them in a fantastic cinema in London, caught up with them yesterday and this is what they said…
***cut to filmed interview***
AJ: So series 3 of Mad Dogs. Philip (who looked quite surprised to be called on first!) what do you think the secret of the longevity of this series is; what’s the appeal?
PG: Well… storytelling really; good writing, good acting. (With a cheeky smile) Can’t vouch for the others but…
AJ: You were friends already; you worked together in different combinations. Do you think that’s helped being convincing characters; that it comes across as more genuine?
JS: Well, we’re playing four friends so yeah, it’s definitely helped with the chemistry; you sort of get a lot for nothing from the off really if you know each other. I think it helps; there’s a lot that we don’t have to act. Erm, we’re playing four not particularly nice characters, so y’know that’s the only difference.
AJ: Well it’s interesting you should say that because my next question was going to be, 'do you identify with the characters?' Max? You are quite flawed characters? Do you find sympathies with them?
JS: Very flawed yes.
MB: Yeah we are flawed. I think out of the four, I think Woody’s characters the most… the nicest wouldn’t you say? (Everyone agrees) We started from a level of respect for each other and a little bit of love and by the end of this journey that we’ve all been on we’re…
PG: We’re all divorced.
MB: We really have become very, very, very close which is a rarity in the business which is great.
AJ: Is it because it’s quite an intense experience, the filming experience, working altogether?
MB: I think it’s more eating together.
PG: It’s actually very enjoyable. I think we’re all of an age, some older than others
MB: I’m the youngest.
PG: That y’know we’ve been through all the party animal stuff so it’s actually rather nice to…
MB: (laughing and looking at the others) You speak for yourself, kid
PG: (joins in with laughter) to just go out and have a nice meal.
MW: When this all started that was one of the main premises, what it’s like being a man turning forty, y’know? And we’re all… well three of us are in our forties
MW: One of us has progressed. But yeah, so that was the premise of the whole thing really and just the choices you make.
AJ: And didn’t the original ide come from something you came up with yourself?
MW: I had a meeting and I went in and I wrote a piece about four guys in a band and that kind of got shot out of the water really (everyone laughs) but the only two things I mentioned in it was that they were all turning 40, it’s like at the crossroads, which road do you take if you’re making choices and I also mentioned Majorca as I’d holidayed in Majorca and I really liked Majorca and I just thought it would be nice to film there and that was basically the only things they kept; the four of us and the Majorca idea.
AJ: What can we expect, John, from the next series, because you ended series 2 in a bit of a pickle?
JS: Yes. The first episode of series 3 goes in a completely different direction. It sort of knocks the first two series’ out of the water really. We end up in Cape Town and that’s what happened, we went from Majorca to Cape Town
PG: As you do
JS: (nods) As you do. Yes I think the end of series 2 we’d arrived in Morocco and…
MW: Yeah, we were in Ibiza weren’t we?
MB: Two is more of a road movie. One was quite concentrated I think that’s why it worked. It was quite smothering in a way, all the drama focused on the four of us with of course, Ben Chaplin, who was excellent in it. Then two becomes more of a road movie and then three I think we’ve got back to that again, the nucleus of the four chaps and their dilemmas. And it’s very exciting.
(Note: At this point, Phil is clearly distracted by something off camera… he’s looking away and looks quite pensive.)
AJ: And give me an idea of the filming, do you all live in the same house, cook for each other and go out together?
JS: No, we’d drive each other mad if we did that.
MW: We have different apartments.
JS: We live next door to each other.
MW: Max cooks for us. Max is the cook.
(Note: Phil seems to remember where he is and what he’s meant to be doing and refocuses his attention on the interview)
MB: I like cooking for the boys. It’s a great expression of love without going too far obviously (sniggers from the others).
MW: Without being weird.
MB: No we stayed in a beautiful Marina opposite the ‘One and Only’ and we’d very often… That’s the great thing and a reflection of how close we all were… on our days off where, normally on a job you’d just want to have your own inner sanctum and read and get away from everybody, we’d miss each other . Phil and I one day decided we were going to go to a winery, and it was probably one of the best days.
MW: You sort of fell in love really, didn’t you?
MB: We kind of fell in love at that point yeah and we’ve been together ever since. (Phil reaches over and takes Max’s hand)
JS: That was day one wasn’t it really?
MB: (holding Phil’s hand) Yeah, day one.
AJ: On that very beautiful note, we will leave it there but thank you all very much.
PG, JS, MW, MB: (Phil and Max still holding hands) Thank you.
***back to studio***
AJ: They were great. You don’t really think of Mad Dogs as being a romantic.
Other presenter: Not at all, not at all but when you’ve got a cast like that you can turn it into absolutely anything. I'm quite looking forward to this.
AJ: Yeah that’s right; they’re all class acts aren’t they? Fantastic stuff.
