COPPER Season 1 Recap: A Look Back at 1864 (by BBCAmericaTV)
Relive all the Five Points action of 1864 in a look back at the explosive first season of BBC America’s original series Copper:
COPPER, an American saga set in 1865 New York City, returns for a second season on the brink of Lincoln’s assassination — with shifts in politics and society altering the landscape for Irish immigrants and African-Americans.
At the center, Detective Kevin Corcoran (TOM WESTON-JONES, MI-5) struggles to tame the wartime metropolis while wrestling with personal demons, including the betrayal of his wife and best friend.
And when Tammany Hall’s outspoken General Brendan Donovan (DONAL LOGUE, Sons of Anarchy, Terriers), returns from the Civil War to restore law and order in the Sixth Ward, loyalties will be bought and sold both uptown and in the slums of the Five Points as Corcoran, and those around him, fight to find their places in an unforgiving city.
Returning cast members include FRANKA POTENTE (American Horror Story), ATO ESSANDOH (Django Unchained), KYLE SCHMID (Arrow), ANASTASIA GRIFFITH (Once Upon a Time), KEVIN RYAN (Tripping Tommy), DYLAN TAYLOR (Covert Affairs), KIARA GLASCO (Haven) and TESSA THOMPSON (For Colored Girls).
Additionally, ALFRE WOODWARD (Steel Magnolias, Twelve Years a Slave, True Blood), EAMONN WALKER (Chicago Fire, OZ), LEE TERGESEN (Army Wives, OZ) and ANDREW HOWARD (Hatfields and McCoys, Burn Notice) will guest-star this season.

Need to catch up on the current season of Doctor Who?
It’s all leading up to the 8pm Series 7.2 finale, The Name of The Doctor.
(via Entertainment Weekly)
Last year, in the preview for Season Seven, Doctor Who‘s producers announced that each of the episodes would pack the punch of a blockbuster movie. And in keeping with that aim, a dramatic, movie-style poster would be released for each installment. The campaign proved extremely popular, with fans enthusiastically collecting and dissecting each image for details and references. We spoke with Lee Binding, Doctor Who‘s talented graphic designer who helped bring these visions to life, about his sweet gig, the collaborative process with producers and the team behind the posters, and the single image that took three months to create.
What’s your history with Doctor Who as a fan?
Lee: I remember my mother calling me downstairs when I was six, yelling “Doctor Who‘s on! You like that!” and me thinking “Do I…?” but going downstairs anyway. She was right, you know.
Were you the kid who sits in the back of the class doodling in notebooks?
Lee: Yeah, actually I was. I was obsessed with the shape of the Police Box. When I first started, it was like little Amelia Pond’s rough oblong models, but you keep trying and eventually you get all the detail in there — the roof and the door flanges and stuff like that. I love that Police Box. It’s a beautiful shape, and I love what it represents: the start of the adventure. I’ve seen some fan artwork where they’ve put the TARDIS on a planet, and the door’s open with the light spilling out. That for me is just the most exciting image ever. Anything can happen!

Doctor Who Series 7 (2012-2013)
If you want to know what Brits were watching this past spring, the answer wasBroadchurch, the critically acclaimed drama that made the fictional killer of a young boy in a sleepy seaside town the topic of national conversation. The cast, led by David Tennant and double BAFTA winner Olivia Colman as detectives investigating the murder, had to keep the series’ central secret under wraps until the explosive finale, which garnered huge ratings for British network ITV and became the most tweeted-about drama episode of the year.
Broadchurch will soon be coming to BBC AMERICA, and our Alan Moloneycaught stars Andrew Buchan and Jodie Whittaker on the rain-drenched red carpet of the BAFTA TV awards in London yesterday (May 12) to chat about what viewers here can expect from the first season. “A lot of tears,” says Whittaker.
