Mark Gatiss, Peter Fonda, World Cup v Cinema

With Matthew Sweet.

In a new series on The Film Programme, Sherlock co-creator Mark Gatiss reveals his favourite movie detectives, starting with Alastair Sim's lugubrious Inspector Cockrill.

Peter Fonda remembers his Easy Rider co-star Dennis Hopper and recalls their legal dispute about the authorship of the counter-culture classic.

How has the World Cup affected cinema attendances ? Clare Binns of the Picturehouse chain and independent cinema owner Kevin Markwick reveal their figures.

Antonia Quirke argues that social media has killed the movie star and blames James Franco's underpants.
