Andrew Scott in new drama mini-series The Town

The Town is a three-part contemporary drama from Big Talk Productions starring BAFTA winner Andrew Scott alongside an outstanding ensemble cast including Julia McKenzie, Charlotte Riley, Gerard Kearns, Kelly Adams and Martin Clunes.

The first television series by Laurence Olivier award-winning playwright Mike Bartlett, The Town follows a shocking incident within an otherwise normal family. Mark Nicholas (Scott) returns to the town where he grew up to find his grandmother Betty (McKenzie) is now living in his childhood bedroom and he barely knows his teenage sister Jodie (Avigail Tlalim).

Mark is drawn back into the life he left behind. Hardest of all is meeting his first love Alice (Riley), now married with a child. Thrust into the complicated lives of his former neighbours, it’s not surprising there are awkward moments as Mark becomes reacquainted with his past, including his old friends ‘down the pub’ Lucy (Kelly Adams), Carly (Aisling Bea) and Jeff (Sam Troughton).

Running parallel with Mark’s story, we get to know the town Mayor, alcohol-soaked Len (Clunes). With his world falling in around him, Len is stumbling from one PR disaster to another. As we get to know the community, we’re also introduced to the enigmatic Inspector Franks (Douglas Hodge) from the local police force whose links to the family are stronger than it first appears.

Mark struggles to decide whether he should stay permanently to be with his family. But a new life is difficult to build in the place you used to call home and now feels like you barely know it.

The Actor Who Plays Sherlock Holmes's Nemesis Dresses Up In Topman And Tells Us Why It's Sometimes Good To Be Bad

In the crazy world of celebs and showbiz, every so often along comes a sprinkling of actors whose dedication to honing their craft outweighes the obvious allure and trappings of fame. Andrew Scott is definitely one of those kind of actors, that's not to say that Scott has been waiting in the wings for his moment in the spotlight, actually far from it. His recent BAFTA win for his role as BBC's Sherlock Holmes baddie, Jim Moriarty is testament to that, plus his busy schedule (which has seen him work in film, television and where it all originally began, on the stage) is a clear indication that Scott has the kind of talent that keeps him in demand. Having cut his acting teeth in the theatre, ultimately winning a Laurence Olivier Award for his role in A Girl In A Car With A Man, Scott has gone onto work with an impressive roster of talented actors, screenwriters and directors including Mike Bartlett, Sam Mendes and Julianne Moore. GENERATION spoke to the Irish actor, at Topman's VIP Personal Shopping Suite, about why he enjoys playing villians and his new role in ITV1 drama The Town...

Steven Moffat: expect new Sherlock villains

“We need to find new villains, we need to find new ideas, otherwise the show doesn’t keep growing”

Paul Jones

Sherlock co-creator Steven Moffat has suggested that the detective will not be facing his original nemesis Moriarty in future series.

As far as fans know, Moriarty died at the end of series two, having shot himself ahead of Sherlock’s now legendary dive from the top of a hospital building.

But if Sherlock can survive that – and we know that he does – could his arch-enemy also have faked his death?

While Moffat doesn’t answer that question for sure, he has made it clear that Moriarty (Andrew Scott) will not feature heavily in future series of Sherlock and that fans should expect new adversaries for Benedict Cumberbatch's detective.

“Moriarty’s a one-shot deal in the original [books]. I don’t want [Sherlock] to turn into a show that’s about one villain and one hero,” said Moffat.“Moriarty was great because he was a surprise. Every time you bring him back he won’t be as big a surprise.

“We need to find new villains, we need to find new ideas, otherwise the show doesn’t keep growing,” he added, in an interview for a French website.

And Moffat suggested he would be returning to Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s original stories to seek inspiration for Sherlock's future adversaries.

“There are other great villains in [the Conan Doyle books] that we want to visit. We have to keep the show growing otherwise it won’t surprise you. Once you get the measure of it you’ll just get critical - if we keep surprising you and keeping you off balance you won’t.”

A transmission date for the new run of Sherlock is yet to be announced. Following the finale in January, Moffat and co-creator Mark Gatiss took to Twitter to reveal that the third series had been commissioned at the same time as the second.

For those who have been keeping tabs on the comings and goings surrounding Peter Jackson's return to Middle-earth in "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey," there is a unique level of excitement building around the film. The die-hard Jackson fans and "Lord of the Rings" loyalists are eager to see anything helmed by the Oscar-winner, particularly when it involves a faithful adaptation of J. R. R. Tolkien's beloved book, which has a different tone and fanbase from "LOTR."

This excitement level is not just for fans like us, but everyone involved with the production as well. When MTV News caught up with rising star Benedict Cumberbatch recently, who is playing not one but two roles in the film, he was full of praise for Jackson as well as his friend/co-star Martin Freeman.

"I was very lucky [to work] with Pete," Cumberbatch told us at Elton John's Oscar-viewing party. "As far as the experience, what an extraordinary one it was because at the time I was in my work; I was in isolation with him and this incredible tag team. And at the very cool place with that technology doing mo-cap for two characters, Smaug the dragon and another character, which will remain nameless, and it was an awful lot of fun."

Cumberbatch went on to say that he hasn't seen any finished shots from the film since he worked mainly by himself doing voice-over work and movements for the characters.

"It's a sort of wonderful ongoing process," he said. "I spent a lot of time recording voice as well as doing movements. So, it was sort of freeing; it was fun. It was like playing a game. It's going to be an amazing film; it's going to be a real treat. I watched 'The Lord of the Rings' again before I started working, and the way those films grow in depth of craft on every level are extraordinary. Their mark is for that."

The "War Horse" actor admitted that the only trouble he had while on set was keeping a straight face when he saw his friend and "Sherlock" co-star Martin Freeman in costume as lovable Hobbit Bilbo Baggins.

"It was great. I got to hang out with him, and I kept a straight face for a bit and then I started giggling because I know Martin, I don't know Bilbo," Cumberbatch said with a grin. "For Martin to be sitting there playing Bilbo is amazing. He's going to be amazing, he's going to be fantastic in this film."
