Warning: This episode contains spoilers for Episode Three of the Fifth Season of Grantchester. After a particularly cinematic episode of Grantchester, we head behind the camera for a conversation with episode director Christiana Ebohon-Green. With hints of classic film noir and Hollywood's golden age sprinkled throughout a classic picture house crime scene, Ebohon-Green reveals where she and the creative team turned for inspiration.
Warning: This episode contains spoilers for Episode 2 of the Fifth Season of Grantchester. The quiet charm of Leonard Finch and Daniel Marlowe's blossoming romance has been an unexpected highlight of the last few seasons of Grantchester.

Warning: This episode contains spoilers for Episode 1 of the Fifth Season of Grantchester. It's the fifth season of Grantchester, and series lead Tom Brittney is firmly in control in his role as Rev.

In the international cast of World On Fire, Nancy Campbell and her nephew, Webster O’Connor, are two Americans facing the perils of a looming war. Actor Brian J. Smith found something of himself in the romantic character he plays on the series, and he shared stories from set in a new interview.
Warning: This episode contains spoilers for Episode Five of the First Season of World On Fire*.* During World War II, Julia Brown's grandmother was a jazz singer, which gave the World On Fire star a broad starting point for her fiercely independent character, Lois Bennett. But in Brown's hands, Lois is a strong and sharply independent young woman looking for adventures of her own.
Warning: This episode contains spoilers for Episode Three of the First Season of World On Fire.

Warning: This episode contains spoilers for Episode Two of the First Season of World On Fire. From a summer romance in beautiful prewar Warsaw to a rebel resistance in the rubble of her struggling city at war, young Polish waitress Kasia Tomaszeski has seen a life's worth of trauma in a few brief episodes. Actor Zofia Wichłacz was prepared for the dark role, but warns in a new interview — there's still more pain to come for Kasia.
Warning: This episode contains spoilers for Episode One of the First Season of World On Fire. If World On Fire's Nancy Campbell seems familiar, it's more than just the fact that she is played by Academy Award-winning actor Helen Hunt.

The entire historical costume drama is now available for binge viewing on PBS Passport, and Chadha previews the story for MASTERPIECE viewers in a new podcast conversation.
Warning: This episode contains spoilers for Episode Eight of the First Season of *Sanditon * Actor Anne Reid is quick to remind anyone listening that her Sanditon character, Lady Denham, is a terrible, grouchy miser. But the actor herself is anything but, and her interview here is a charming farewell to the first season of the series.
Warning: This episode contains spoilers for Episode Seven of the First Season of Sanditon. Screenwriter Andrew Davies has already adapted Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice, Sense and Sensibility, Northanger Abbey, and *Emma *for television *— *but his new iteration of the author's tragically unfinished final novel, Sanditon is a creation distinctly his own. Davies reveals how he found the plot in Austen's 24,000-word fragment, and what he embellished on his own in creating the new series.
Warning: This episode contains spoilers for Episode Six of the First Season of Sanditon. For the first time since her journey from Willingden, Charlotte Haywood leaves the town of Sanditon, heading to London in pursuit of her kidnapped friend, Miss Georgiana Lambe. Series stars Theo James, Rose Williams and Crystal Clarke join Sanditon creator Andrew Davies in a special podcast episode exploring the misty streets of Regency-era London, and offering previews of the final two episodes on the way.
Warning: This episode contains spoilers for Episode Five of the First Season of Sanditon. Esther Denham has few friends in Sanditon, and even her wolfish step-brother, Sir Edward, seems to prefer the company of others more than he does his sharp-tounged step-sister. So it's a charming surprise to speak with actor Charlotte Spencer, who truly is everything that Esther is not.
Warning: This episode contains spoilers for Episode Four of the First Season of Sanditon. In a special bonus episode of MASTERPIECE Studio, Sanditon stars Rose Williams and Crystal Clarke reunite in the studio to answer a few of your viewer questions about the series, their friendship and the difficulties of wearing Regency-era corsets.
