Guerrilla: The Complete Series – The DVDfever Review – Idris Elba drama

Guerrilla is set in London, 1971, a time of racism and white people against black people, a time I’d like to think we’ve got far away from, although even today, the police are stuck in that horrendous stone age. Dom Robinson Reviewer of movies, videogames and music since 1994. Aortic valve operation survivor from the […]

Marcella Episode 1 – The DVDfever Review

Marcella opens with a shot of the lead character, played by Anna Friel, in the bath, bruised and bloodied, the bathroom looking slightly cleaner than that in The Young Ones. However, this is no dream sequence, it’s real and we then flash back to 12 days earlier… She took a career break several years ago […]

Midwinter of the Spirit Episode 1 – The DVDfever Review

Midwinter of the Spirit did something that I don’t think I’ve ever seen in any other TV drama ever made – they finally gave a leading role to the brilliant Anna Maxwell Martin! The supernatural tone was set early on, beginning with a man being chased through forest to be sacrificed, while a priest babbles […]

Fortitude Episode 12 – The DVDfever Review

Fortitude Episode 12 signals the end of ‘Eldorado In The Arctic‘ – bad acting, random accents and disjointed storylines. Yes, it’s the 1992 soap all over again! Vincent’s still trapped inside with Dr Allerdyce and she’s looking none too clever. Being a doctor won’t help her now. Worst still, those flies aren’t flies – they’re […]

Fortitude Episode 11 – The DVDfever Review

Fortitude Episode 11 means we’re at the penultimate episode of one of the biggest disappointments in television history, so that’s something to be thankful for, at least. Well, Dan did have a change of heart after all, even though it could drop him right in the shit, and he heads out to see Morton, but […]

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 […]

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 […]

Fortitude Episode 6 – The DVDfever Review

Fortitude Episode 6 starts with a flashback, jumping a few episodes back to when Frank was having it away with Elena. Jules is seen heading out without a hat on, and is chanced upon by Henry, who insists frostbite can severely knacker your ears and wants her to take his hat because he doesn’t live […]
