The story follows a law enforcement team made up of fantasy and supernatural characters.

Per the BBC’s synopsis, “The comedic yet thrilling series pits trolls, werewolves, wizards and other improbable heroes against an evil plot to resurrect a great dragon which would lead to the destruction of life as they know it.” Members of the team include “the captain of The City Watch Sam Vimes (Richard Dormer), the last scion of nobility Lady Sybil Ramkin (Lara Rossi), the naïve but heroic Carrot (Adam Hughill), the mysterious Angua (Marama Corlett) and the ingenious forensics expert Cheery (Jo Eaton-Kent) together with The Watch’s own idiosyncratic depiction of Death.”.

It is estimated that about £3bn of rent owed to commercial property landlords for the six months to September will not have been paid, laying bare the acute pressures faced by landlords and tenants.

In a joint statement, the British Property Federation, British Retail Consortium, UK Hospitality, ukactive and Revo said: “Without urgent action on rents, many otherwise viable businesses are, through not fault of their own, at imminent risk of failure.

“Where both landlord and tenant are able to cover at least 50pc of the rent owed, and are able to demonstrate they are working together as economic partners, government should have the confidence to invest in these businesses’ futures and prevent the needless loss of hundreds of thousands of jobs.”.

Michael Edwards is said to have found his equal in Canaries sporting director Stuart Webber after Liverpool were unable to land a bargain deal for Norwich City defender Jamal Lewis this summer.

A bid of £10 million was submitted for Lewis’ services last week, with that offer immediately rejected.

The feeling at Norwich was that the valuation placed on Lewis by Liverpool was nowhere near a figure they would accept, with Webber wanting to open talks at double that amount.

The Canadian actor Brent Carver, who has died aged 68, played only once in the UK, in London in 1992, but in a performance of such shattering, flamboyant intensity as Molina, a gay window dresser, that it instantly entered the pantheon of fabled musical theatre turns.

The show was John Kander and Fred Ebb’s Kiss of the Spiderwoman at the Shaftesbury theatre in the West End.

When Hal Prince’s production moved to Broadway in 1993, Carver won a Tony award – the show, with a book by Terrence McNally, adapted from Manuel Puig’s 1976 novel, collected seven in all – and, at the age of 40, Carver’s career had come into focus.

Summarize

Avengers: Infinity War may have killed off Carrie Coon's character Proxima Midnight, but that didn't stop directors Joe and Anthony Russo inviting the actress back for Endgame.

An aid to Josh Brolin's Thanos in his pursuit to find the Infinity Stones, Coon's Proxima Midnight was killed in spectacular fashion by Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) as she used her floaty hand magic to launch her into a massive spiky wheel.

Regardless, the actress was called back in by Russo brothers to be part of the fourth and final Avengers instalment, because as she puts it: "No one ever dies [in the MCU].

Relax, Warner Bros Games Is No Longer for Sale

Summarize

And before anyone starts, Spider-Man is a rather special case in the fact Sony have the movie rights which is a massive bargaining chip that they have never had the opportunity to use in the lifespan of PlayStation because Activision had the licence on lockdown?

It was only around 2014 that Sony could actually do a deal with Marvel!

It's taking an advantage of a couple of assets that it has both the movie rights as leverage and the huge PS4 install base would likely offset any potential lost sales by not being multiplatform.
