Carnage: Swallowing The Past – The DVDfever Review – Simon Amstell – BBC iPlayer Exclusive

Carnage: Swallowing The Past is set in 2067, a time when everyone in the world when everyone is vegan.

Diddle Diddle Dumpling – Inside No.9 Series 3 Episode 5 – The DVDfever Review

Diddle Diddle Dumpling goes inside a size 9 shoe, rather than a building relating to the same number, diverting in such a way for the first time ever.

Prime Suspect 1973 Episode 1 – The DVDfever Review

Prime Suspect 1973. It’s 1973, almost dinnertime… I’m ‘avin ‘oops! No, it’s not Gene Hunt in Life On Mars, but it’s the same year for this Prime Suspect prequel and set in Hackney, daan saath, where wet-behind-the-ears cop Jane Tennison (Stefanie Martini) is starting out.

The Replacement Episode 1 – The DVDfever Review – ‘The Hand That Rocks The Office’

The Replacement is a new three-parter which feels very much ‘The Hand That Rocks The Office‘ mixed with other ‘daft shocks’-style ’90s thrillers such as Pacific Heights and Single White Female, with up-and-comer Paula (Line of Duty’s Vicky Mcguire) taking over from Ellen (The A Word‘s Morven Christie), who’s taking time off to drop a […]

Broadchurch Series 3 Episode 1 – The DVDfever Review

Broadchurch returns for a third and, apparently final, series and… I have to say that I’ve never seen this show before. Heard good things about series 1. Bad things about series 2.

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 […]
