The Children Act – Trailer 1 – Emma Thompson

The Children Act is a film that looks very well-intentioned, and with some great names in the cast, but it looks extremely dull. As her marriage to Jack (Stanley Tucci) flounders, eminent High Court judge Fiona Maye (Emma Thompson) has a life-changing decision to make at work – should she force a teenage boy, Adam […]

A Very English Scandal: The Complete Series – 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 […]

Hold The Sunset Episode 1 – The DVDfever Review – John Cleese

Hold The Sunset is every travesty I expected, and is an easy wicket for its leads, Alison Steadman, John Cleese and Jason Watkins. Steadman plays Edith, a retired widow who finds recycling difficult – just like no-one does… and puts them in plastic bags within the bins, rather than just the items themselves (duh!). Oh… […]

W1A Series 3 Episode 1 – The DVDfever Review

W1A enters its third series, so is doing brilliantly well, given that it was spawned from the two-series Twenty Twelve, which did for the London Olympics what The Thick Of It did for politics. That said, this is rumoured to be the W1A‘s last. This time, the BBC is heading towards its charter renewal, and […]

Line Of Duty Series 4 Episode 1 – The DVDfever Review

Line Of Duty Series 4 started with a bang and didn’t let up – literally, as Polish waitress Hana (Gaite Jansen) was run over, kidnapped, then trapped in a house rigged to explode in flames… The suspect, Michael Farmer (Scott Reid), is accused of the deadly deed in this heart-stopping opener which began an hour […]

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 […]

Are You Being Served? (2016) – The DVDfever Review

Are You Being Served? is one of the sitcoms being revived for a one-off special by the BBC, and ran for an – unprecedented by today’s standards – ten series from 1972 to 1985, whereas most run for 3 or 4 at most, partly due to there being so much more choice available these days, […]

Friday Night Dinner Series 4 Episode 1 – The DVDfever Review

Friday Night Dinner returns for a fourth series with no sign of slowing down with Robert Popper’s quickfire rate of gags. Around this point, you’d expect the average sitcom to have long spent its best, with long swathes of time passing while the family stand around with nothing to do. Not so with FND. It’s […]

Love, Nina Episode 1 – The DVDfever Review

Love, Nina begins with us first seeing the titular character walking barefoot, which she does constantly… because she’s quirky. However, there’s no way anyone would do that normally, given all the crap on the ground. Nina (Faye Marsay – Shona in Doctor Who: Last Christmas – one of the few good elements of that episode, […]
