Sherelle Jacobs Assistant Comment Editor Follow 27 December 2018 • 4:46pm Is modern British television suffering from its worst ever lack of creativity? The question has crossed my mind more than once over the Christmas and New Year break. The holiday’s big hitters, from macabre Watership Down to the stinging Agatha Christie festive special The ABC Murders, are all cleverly disturbing dramas. The trouble is that the endless bombardment of “cleverly disturbing” telly has rendered the whole concept stale and tedious.

A CHINESE biotech company is cloning movie star animals and can grow a replica of your pet for just £43,000. Sinogene specialises in pet cloning, and made headlines last year by successfully cloning a gene-edited Beagle. A month later, it launched its commercial cloning services.

Julie Hinds Detroit Free Press Published 11:00 AM EST Nov 16, 2018 As the new kid on the "NCIS" crime-fighting team, Diona Reasonover has gotten some lovely, if awkward, compliments. "I've had people come up to me in shopping malls and airports and tell me, 'I was worried you were going to ruin my favorite show, but you're doing great!' " says the 26-year-old actress, who's from Detroit. She gets their concern. As a new permanent cast member, she is filling the niche left by the departure of Pauley Perrette, a fan favorite since the 2003 debut of the series. Reasonover plays Kasie Hines, the forensic scientist in charge of the crime lab formerly run by Perrette's beloved goth girl, Abby Scuito. The young, multi-talented performer is winning over the dedicated following for "NCIS," which continues to rock the ratings in season 16.
