Fortitude Season 2 Episode 5 – The DVDfever Review

Fortitude Season 2 Episode 5 is where I am this increasingly ridiculous series part ways. I have tried, but while the first series was occasionally “so bad it’s good”, this one has stumbled along like a lame calf being led to the slaughter, desperate to be put down. Dom Robinson Reviewer of movies, videogames and […]

The Riddle of The Sphinx – Inside No.9 Series 3 Episode 3 – The DVDfever Review

The Riddle of The Sphinx proved that The Bill wasn’t just streets ahead of the rest of the series so far, but that it has strong competition. Based around crossword puzzles with Nina (Utopia‘s Alexandra Roach) letting herself into her professor’s study (which is room No.9, naturally), he – Professor Squires (Steve Pemberton) – is […]

The Bill – Inside No.9 Series 3 Episode 2 – The DVDfever Review

The Bill is the second episode of series 3 of Inside No.9, and if that has you wondering where the first episode went, well, that was the Christmas one. As always, the story takes place in a building of some description with the number in place, and this is a restaurant called “number nine”, and […]

SS-GB Episode 1 – The DVDfever Review – Sam Riley drama

SS-GB is set in an alternate past, beginning in November 1941, fourteen months after the Germans won the Battle of Britain… yes, you read that right. Due to extreme austerity, it’s not only a time for sharing bathwater, but also sharing other things, since we first see Detective Douglas Archer (Sam Riley) sleeping with his […]

Fortitude Season 2 Episode 4 – The DVDfever Review

Fortitude Season 2 Episode 4 is the point where I’m still wondering why I’m bothering and I’m going to give this show one more episode after this before I consider calling it a day. Series 1 was similarly (and to coin a term from Dame Denise van Outen) “Mental, mental, chicken oriental”, but at least […]

24: Legacy Episodes 1 and 2 – The DVDfever Review

24: Legacy, where Dr Dre takes over from Jack Bauer, who is reportedly not in this new 12-part series at all… so I expect he’ll turn up at some point. I say Dr Dre, but the main man is Corey Hawkins, who played the rapper as part of NWA in the superb Straight Outta Compton, […]

Fortitude Season 2 Episode 3 – The DVDfever Review

Fortitude Season 2 Episode 3 felt like rather a filler episode where not an awful lot happened, even if what did happen was very weird. After seeing PC Ingrid’s taking Rene Lennox (okay, he’s called Rune, but I’m renaming him Rene after the late, great Gordon Kaye’s character in Allo Allo) into the clink because […]

The Moorside Episode 1 – The DVDfever Review – Shannon Matthews drama

The Moorside tells the tale of Karen Matthews, the idiot who claimed her daughter, Shannon, had been kidnapped when she was hidden under a bed the entire time. Karen thought she could hoodwink the media in the same way Kate and Gerry McCann hoodwinked them into thinking they were great parents by leaving their children […]

The Good Karma Hospital Episode 1 – The DVDfever Review

The Good Karma Hospital is essentially Doc Hollywood meets Casualty, as fish-out-of-water-cum-aspiring-hopeful junior doctor Ruby Walker (Game Of Thrones‘ Amrita Acharia) goes on a passage to India to work in a big fancy hospital that trumps the NHS, not realising you’ve got to slum it for the first year in a run-down hole like this. […]

Fortitude Season 2 Episode 2 – The DVDfever Review

Fortitude Season 2 Episode 2 begins with an unknown drifter talking incoherently while staring at something in the distance… a bear… carrying something… a reindeer calf, but…. he’s got no eyes! How does he smell? TERRIBLE! (or something) Meanwhile, Dan is in hospital with acute alcohol poisoning, possibly antifreeze! Has he been drinking Bart Simpson’s […]
