Film Stars Don’t Die in Liverpool on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

Film Stars Don’t Die In Liverpool is set in the Scouse city in 1981, and it wasn’t until after I saw this that I discovered it was based on a true story. I hadn’t heard of her before and so that’s how I approached watching this which, at the start, finds actress Gloria Grahame (Annette […]

Babs – BBC Barbara Windsor drama – The DVDfever Review

Babs is a very hit and miss one-off drama about the life of British national treasure Barbara Windsor, who’s played by not one, not two, but a total of four actresses, plus the lady herself. Her youngest self is played by Florence Keen, giving great support for the titular lady when she started as a […]

The Good Karma Hospital Episode 1 – The DVDfever Review

The Good Karma Hospital is essentially Doc Hollywood meets Casualty, as fish-out-of-water-cum-aspiring-hopeful junior doctor Ruby Walker (Game Of Thrones‘ Amrita Acharia) goes on a passage to India to work in a big fancy hospital that trumps the NHS, not realising you’ve got to slum it for the first year in a run-down hole like this. […]

Shut Up And Dance – Black Mirror Series 3 Episode 3 – The DVDfever Review

Undercover begins centred around Maya (Sophie Okonedo), a laywer who’s spent the last 20 years campaigning for Rudy Jones (Dennis Haysbert), a man imprisoned for a murder he did not commit. However, he’s jailed in Louisiana where such a crime attracts the death penalty. Given that Haysbert played an assassinated President in 24, and now […]

Line Of Duty Series 3 Episode 1 – The DVDfever Review

Line Of Duty Series 3 begins with Operation Damson, and a dawn raid on a man who is expected to be armed and extremely dangerous, possibly on his way to carry out a gangland execution. The suspect took off in a fast car, was cornered by the police armed-response van but then escaped on foot, […]

From Darkness Episode 1 – The DVDfever Review

From Darkness should’ve begun with former cop Claire Church (Anne-Marie Duff) re-enacting Al Pacino from The Godfather Part III bemoaning, “Just when I think I’m *out*, they pull me back *in*!” She quit the police force 16 years ago, but the continuity announcer attempted to instil some fear before it started with “her past is […]
