Reasons the BBC’s upcoming TV movie about one of Hollywood’s most famous couples will be different from Lifetime’s infamous 2012 film based on the very same pair:
1. This one is called Burton and Taylor, not Liz & Dick. (Surnames are classier.)
2. It stars The Wire‘s Dominic West and Academy Award nominee Helena Bonham Carter in the title roles — rather than New Zealand-born actor Grant Bowler and certified train wreck Lindsay Lohan.
