Wanamaker was paid half as much as Lindsay on My Family

Zoe Wanamaker has revealed the full extent of the gender pay gap on BBC comedy My Family. The actress says she received less than half of co-star Robert Lindsay's wages on the series, which ran for 11 series from 2000 to 2011.

The fourth in this amiably anachronistic series set in ancient Rome begins with the humorously sudden death of a key character, crushed by a stone on the construction site of "Number One, The Forum" - the project of Robert Lindsay's smooth, prattling property developer. Marcus (Tom Rosenthal) makes a lame bid for compensation as Ryan Sampson's Grumio eats his way through his grief. But then Jason (Jonathan Pointing), the builder responsible for the accident, enters their lives.

The John Sullivan sitcom that was ended before it began

Following the end of his first big hit in the 1970s, Citizen Smith, Sullivan was scouting around for another project, and settled on a comedy about a failing football manager, known as Over The Moon. Brian Wilde was cast in the lead role, whilst director Ray Butt was also on board. The BBC was happy, and gave a six series first run the nod, after a successful pilot was made. Barely weeks later, though, the BBC promptly changed its mind.

Robert Lindsay: 'Monster' Weinstein blacklisted me

Actor Robert Lindsay has said he lost out on a role in Oscar-winning 1998 film Shakespeare in Love because Harvey Weinstein removed him after a previous confrontation.

Lindsay said he confronted the producer when he was working on the 1990 film Strike it Rich, but he later "paid a price" when he lost a role in Shakespeare in Love.

Speaking about the allegations of sexual assault, Lindsay told 5 Live's Sarah Brett and Nihal Arthanayake Weinstein was a "monster".

Bounty Hunters review: silly script & a lack of laughs

Rosie Perez can't save this odd-couple comedy-drama, co-starring (and co-written by) the overexposed Jack Whitehall.

Bounty Hunters episode one was promising start

We'll see if Whitehall and Perez's combined forces of personality can sustain the already stretched story over another five episodes.

Bounty Hunters review

Some of the issues are surely down to the establishing work the first episode has to do. So it's a good sign that after it airs you'll want to see what happens in part two. On that score, at least, job done.
