Back Episodes 1 and 2 – The DVDfever Review – Mitchell and Webb

Back is the sort of thing I like in TV and films – when actors/writers, who have brought you something you’ve enjoyed, get back together for something new. You know they can’t retread old ground with their best-known work, so the answer is for the same people to do something new. Okay, so both David […]

The State: Complete Series – The DVDfever Review – Channel 4 Drama

The State is a new drama from Peter Kosminsky (Wolf Hall, 2011’s The Promise) about those wanting to join ISIS, aka the Islamic State. So, straight away, you know this is going to be different from most dramas, and for such an intense one, Channel 4 have done the right thing in airing this nightly […]

In The Dark Series 1 – The DVDfever Review – BBC drama

In The Dark poses a dilemma for DI Helen Weeks (MyAnna Buring – Prey), a cop who’s pregnant, so really shouldn’t be chasing ne’er-do-wells down rainy Manchester streets (and I really felt the punch delivered to Helen’s stomach in the first scene, given her condition), but just as she breaks the news to her partner, […]

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. Given the era, it’s a time when police brutality was […]

The Scandalous Lady W – The DVDfever Review

The Scandalous Lady W apparently told the true story of Lady Seymour Worsley (Game Of Thrones and Hunger Games star Natalie Dormer), set in England, 1782, when a man’s wife was considred his property. Unfortunately, I also consider time a crucial property and I hate for it to be wasted, yet that’s precisely what happened […]

Fortitude Episode 10 – The DVDfever Review

Fortitude Episode 10 begins with Henry enjoying the only thing you can enjoy about this dire series – the snowy hilltops on a clear day, as he listens to his old-fangled Sony Walkman. Lorcan Cranitch from Cracker is trying to get hold of Morton and we learn, as he calls the man’s phone and it […]

La Couchette – Inside No.9 Series 2 Episode 1 – The DVDfever Review

La Couchette, the first episode of series 2 of Inside No.9, wasn’t just looking at who lives at No.9, but more specifically, 9A, 9B and so on up until 9F, since it took place in the 2nd class compartment of a sleeper train going overnight from Paris to Bourg-St-Maurice. Naturally, everyone wants a good night’s […]

Fortitude Episode 9 – The DVDfever Review

Fortitude Episode 9 begins by showing us Ronnie’s brutal murder but not showing who did the deed. Was it Frank? Then we cut to Liam, having spent most of the series in that bloody hyperbaric chamber while actress Jessica Raine has been given nothing beter to do, playing his mother Jules, than sit there and […]

Fortitude Episode 8 – The DVDfever Review

Fortitude Episode 8 begins in the aftermath of Shirley vomiting into her Mum’s stomach, and she’s now outside… in the FREEZING cold, barefoot and bloodstained. Whatever she’s been doing in the interim, it’s happened offscreen, which is rather a swizz given how Sweet Fanny Adams has happened ONscreen for the majority of this dirge! So, […]

Fortitude Episode 7 – The DVDfever Review

Fortitude Episode 7 takes us past the halfway point and I was promised this episode would FINALLY be good! That would make the first one, so far, then. It’s Chrrrrrrrrriiiisssttmaaaaaaassss! As Noddy Holder might say. And the bearded nutter who was holding a rifle, earlier in the series, is drinking aplenty. And he’s drinking with […]
