The Legacy Season 3 on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

The Legacy Season 3 is a series I was in, initially, two minds about watching. I loved the first one, but found the second treaded water far too much, as if they’d run out of story and it was left coasting like a car with no breaks and a stalled engine, getting by on the […]

The Handmaid’s Tale Episode 1 – The DVDfever Review – The Amish version of Prison Break!

The Handmaid’s Tale is the TV adaptation of Margaret Atwood‘s novel, which I remember seeing on the big screen in the 1990 movie, starring Natasha Richardson and Faye Dunaway while I was at Keele University. I remember not particularly liking it because it wasn’t quite the sort of thing I’d be into when I was […]

The Pyramid At The End Of The World – Doctor Who Series 10 Episode 7 – The DVDfever Review

The Pyramid At The End Of The World picks up where Extremis left off, with the baddie monks with no nose… so how do they smell? Oh… I made that joke last week. Well, if Doctor Who can recycle old ideas… Bill is taken away with the army to find the Doctor as the President, […]

Paula Episode 1 – The DVDfever Review – BBC Drama – Fatal Attraction meets F.E.A.R.

Paula is a chemistry teacher who’s not having much luck in the men dept. Her best hope of late is having an affair with PE teacher Phiip, who’s married, then she discovers a rat infestation downstairs… in the basement, that is – it’s not a euphemism. Dom Robinson Reviewer of movies, videogames and music since […]

White Gold Episode 1 – Salesmen Are Like Vampires – The DVDfever Review

White Gold is so ’80s that it even starts with the BBC2 ident from that era. The year is 1983 – my favourite year for music as that’s when I started buying singles, so one of my favourite parts about this show was the plethora of songs from back then, blasting off with Laura Branigan‘s […]

Extremis – Doctor Who Series 10 Episode 6 – The DVDfever Review

Extremis – or, rather, In extremis – is Latin for “in the farthest reaches” or “at the point of death”. How about a load of confusing rubbish that shows Steven Moffat at his most self-indulgent? It really must be his WORST episode since the Xmas one, The Return of Doctor Mysterio – which was Moffat’s […]

Three Girls Episode 1 – The DVDfever Review

Three Girls takes place over three nights on BBC1 and is based on a true story. The story began with schoolgirl Holly (Molly Windsor) being assaulted in the local ‘Top Curry’ takeaway, her father, Jim (Paul Kaye), not believing her story and insisting they get out of the police station ASAP so they can let […]

Oxygen – Doctor Who Series 10 Episode 5 – The DVDfever Review

Oxygen is the one thing lacking when The Doctor, Bill and Nardole arrive on a spaceship… despite the fact they can walk about due to artificial gravity PLUS they can breathe due to an air seal thing from the TARDIS. The premise is: 4 survivors, one distress call, but originally there were 40 crew members, […]

King Charles III – The DVDfever Review – A perfect epitaph to Tim Pigott-Smith

King Charles III – the title made me think “What? Another labourious period drama? …Oh, hang on, we’ve never had a third King Charles”. And then the penny dropped. Mike Bartlett has adapted his own play for the screen with the late Tim Pigott-Smith in the titular role. It’s a time in the near future […]

Loaded Episode 1 – The DVDfever Review

Loaded is a new sitcom/drama (it’s not just a sitcom because it lasts longer than 30 mins) which centres on four friends – Josh (Jim Howick – Broadchurch, Stag), Leon (Samuel Anderson – Danny Pink in Doctor Who), Ewan (Jonny Sweet – Him & Her) and Watto (Nick Helm – Uncle) – who’ve each made […]
