'Revenge', 'Primeval', 'Skins': Tube Talk Q&A

By and Morgan Jeffery
It's Thursday, so that means another batch of your TV-based questions get answered via the Tube Talk Q&A! This week, there's more Skins scoop, the latest on a UK broadcast for the hit US drama Revenge and news on the future of Primeval - and even more telly related goodness!

Just read that Primeval is getting a spinoff, but are we getting a sixth series?

The prospects of a sixth series of the original Primeval aren't looking good, I'm afraid. The fourth series didn't exactly set the world alight, ratings-wise, when it aired in early 2011, and while digital channel Watch has aired series five, ITV has yet to broadcast the latest episodes. All of which doesn't bode well for renewal...

But on the plus side, Primeval: New World is coming soon - again on Watch in the UK - and is said to feature a small amount of crossover with its parent series. So, fingers crossed, we might not have seen the last of our favourite Primeval characters yet!

Is Alo going to find out about Mini's pregnancy on Skins?
Skins Series 6: Alo


Well, as you've probably noticed, it's Alo's episode next week! But will he find out? Well, if Franky has her way Mini and Alo are going to be doing some serious talking. But first they'll have to stop arguing, and Alo getting a new love interest probably won't help (not just because of the standard jealousy, either).

But we spoke to a certain Mr Will Merrick just the other day and he told us that he thinks the episode could be a controversial one. "People have just got to take it that it's a TV show," he hinted. He even told us: "I hope for many meetings in the street with people who tell me that I'm an awful human being, that's what I'm really hoping for." What could Alo have done? Place your bets now... and check back on Monday for our full preview chat with Will!

Revenge? Any channel picked it up yet?
Revenge (ABC)
Sadly not - for those of you not in the know, Revenge airs on ABC in the US and stars Emily VanCamp as Emily Thorne, a young woman who's intent on getting even with those who wronged her and her father, who was framed for a crime he didn't commit. Unfortunately, there's still no UK broadcaster attached to the series.

However, there is a glimmer of hope if you're based in Ireland - RTE has picked up Revenge to air in the Emerald Isle! No air date confirmed as of yet, so watch this space.

I've heard about a new show, White Heat... What can you tell me? When is it on?

Now this is one you'll want to tune in for. White Heat starts next Thursday (March 8) and has a fab cast, from Claire Foy and Sam Claflin (above) to legends like Juliet Stevenson and Lindsay Duncan. Basically, it focuses on a group of seven students sharing a house in London... and then what happens to them over the following decades!

As you'd expect, this allows for a lot of drama - we're talking romantic entanglements (and unrequited longing), sexual awakenings, racism, politics and lots of humour too. The show looks fabulous (those sets! the clothes!) and has a really lovely feel about it. Oh, and there's the small hint of a mystery to keep you intrigued. We've seen the first two episodes and had a good time - recommended.

DC Bailey from Scott & Bailey
I've heard Scott & Bailey got a second series - when is it back?
As a matter of fact, it's back very soon indeed - on March 12 on ITV1! Not long to wait, really, is it? It's back with a belter, too - a two-part story about some rather grim murders. If you enjoyed the first series, you'll like this - there's family drama with Rachel's brother showing up, and Janet's mum is causing some problems for her and Adrian. Oh, and look out for a funny guest appearance from Green Wing's Pippa Haywood and an almost unrecognisable (but fab) Lisa Riley.

Excited that Adam is back on Being Human - what can you tease about his episode?

Yes, the horny vampire - played by Submarine star Craig Roberts - is indeed back for an encore this Sunday night, and you can check out our traditional ten teasers for his episode 'Hold The Front Page' right now - but what's that? You want more? Oh, alright then...

As you'd expect with Adam around, this week's instalment is pretty darn funny, but there's also some real emotion in there too. Plus, look out for a shocking death and some grisly goings-on in the woods. And keep an eye on vampire villain Cutler (Andrew Gower) - his true intentions are becoming clear...
