The Barometer: The Devil's Whore; Keith Allen; Howling Bells

What's hot...

Cromwell rewired

He had us hooked as McNulty in The Wire, and now Dominic West is starring as Oliver Cromwell in Channel 4's new drama The Devil's Whore.

Yo ho ho

Good reviews all round for Keith Allen's Long John Silver in Treasure Island. Could the actor finally be upstaging his daughter Lily?

The Bells, the Bells

Indie rock band Howling Bells are back with a new single, "Into the Chaos"; it's free to download from www.howlingbells.net.

... and what's not

Sarah who?

Saturday Night Live sketches and The Daily Show were racking up the hits on YouTube, but with the US presidential election over, no one cares any more.

Not even bringing in Seth Rogan could revive Zack and Miri Make a Porno, the latest disastrous offering from Kevin Smiths.

Come on Arlene

John Sergeant may have gone of his own volition, but the public still isn't listening to Strictly Come Dancing judge Arlene Phillips.
