Wallander [British]
3x01 An Event in Autumn
2½ years since the last British Wallander, Kenneth Branagh's more-prone-to-tears interpretation of the Swedish detective is back, this time with an adaptation of a short story. There are only so many novels for them to do, so clearly they're branching out before they run out. It's good stuff still though.
(Saying that, according to Branagh in this article, he hopes for another series adapting the two remaining full-length novels and then leave it at that. Hopefully they'll be able to do that much, then.)
(Also, it's coming up to two years since I last watched any of the longest-running Swedish Wallander! God, time flies.)

Game of Thrones reveals new cast members for Season 3!
by Lauren Davis (from io9)

Including a tonne of people reading for British viewers to proclaim, "oh, it's him/her from... oh y'know... that thing..."

Clive Russell, Thomas Brodie-Sangster, Ellie Kendrick, Paul Kaye, Mackenzie Crook, Tara Fitzgerald, Tobias Menzies, Anton Lesser -- if you don't know the name you'll probably know the face. Plus someone who I think was in Hollyoaks, someone who I think played Matilda on stage, some people I don't recognise at all even after Googling their face, and none other than Dame Diana Rigg(!)

Game of Thrones may have a cast bigger than the population of a small country, but at least you'll recognise them.
