A Very English Scandal Episode 1 – The DVDfever Review – Hugh Grant

A Very English Scandal centres around the late Jeremy Thorpe (Hugh Grant), an MP who became the leader of the Liberal Party, but – starting in 1965 and with the story going back to 1961 – it was a time when being gay was very much frowned upon back then. Thankfully, times these days are […]

Bulletproof Episodes 1 and 2 – The DVDfever Review – Ashley Walters, Noel Clarke

Bulletproof is like a British Bad Boys for TV, as Ashley Walters and Noel Clarke play Ashley Walters and Noel Clarke, aka two cops who wisecrack but still take the bad guys. Don’t expect anything intellectually deep for this hour, but as it began I thought – hopefully, it’ll be a lot of fun. It […]

Patrick Melrose Episodes 1 and 2 – The DVDfever Review – Benedict Cumberbatch

Patrick Melrose is a drama I went into knowing absolutely nothing about it, but it has been previewed for some time, with Benedict Cumberbatch in the titular role. It’s based on the novels by Edward St Aubyn, with which I was unaware since I prefer seeing books in TV or film form. Set in London, […]

Romper Stomper Episode 1 – The DVDfever Review

Romper Stomper, the 1992 movie led by Russell Crowe as Hando, the Neo Nazi skinhead who hates everyone who has a skin with a different colour to him, was an incredible work of art as a movie. So, while it’s good that there’s a spin-off from that, it makes you wonder why it’s taken so […]

The Bridge Season 4 Episode 1 – The DVDfever Review

The Bridge Season 4: It’s back! Yes, for me, this is the pinnacle of Nordic Noir drama. Well, this and Braquo, but that came to an end after four seasons, and this will be doing so, too. I guess there’s only so far you can go with the characters before things start repeating themselves too […]

Innocent: The Complete Series – The DVDfever Review – ITV drama

Innocent centres around David Collins (Lee Ingleby – The A Word), who is released from jail after 7 years because the jury can’t agree on this and that about the forensic evidence over whether he actually killed his wife, Tara, or not. Full of frustration, the plan over he next four episodes is to find […]

The Rain Season 1 – The DVDfever Review – Netflix

The Rain is an eight-part Danish series and within a few minutes we’re in disaster movie territory after a motorway pile-up could have serious consequences for everyone if they don’t shift their butts and get to safety. That’s because the rain contains a killer virus, and only the Dad of the family can save the […]

Who Wants To Be A Millionaire with Jeremy Clarkson – The DVDfever Review

Who Wants To Be A Millionaire is a quiz show which ran for years and years under the hosting of Chris Tarrant, and spawned countless versions abroad as well as being the cornerstone of Danny Boyle’s Slumdog Millionaire. Interestingly, Tarrant wasn’t even asked whether he wanted to be part of the show’s return, so, while […]

High And Dry Episode 1 – The DVDfever Review – Marc Wootton

High And Dry is a sitcom set on a desert island, written and created by Marc Wootton, and who would normally push me away from a show, but this one works well. Following a devastating plane crash, just him, as camp steward Brett, and one passenger, Douglas (Harry Peacock), have survived. Will anyone save them? […]

The Split Episode 1 – The DVDfever Review – BBC drama

The Split centres around Defoe’s, a lawyer run by a family who, while they deal with a lot of divorces, they have enough of their own problems to fill a soap opera… and so this is another soap opera in prime time. Dom RobinsonReviewer of movies, videogames and music since 1994. Aortic valve operation survivor […]
