Mark Kermode’s Secrets of Cinema Episode 1 – The DVDfever Review

Mark Kermode’s Secrets of Cinema is a new five-part BBC4 series about the movie critic’s first love, which starts with romantic comedies, and it doesn’t take long before Mr Kermode breaks films down a bit more than the rest of us would, for example, in terms of showing how Splash perfectly fits the three-act structure […]

Picnic At Hanging Rock Episode 1 – The DVDfever Review – Natalie Dormer

Picnic At Hanging Rock has made the transition from a novel and movie to a six-part series, co-funded by Amazon Studios, with Game Of Thrones and The Hunger Games‘ Natalie Dormer as the overly strict Mrs Appleyard, who buys a large mansion out in the Australian bush and labels it Appleyard College, where many young […]

Sharp Objects Episode 1 – The DVDfever Review – Amy Adams

Sharp Objects is a new HBO mini-series, broadcasting in the UK on Sky Atlantic, which is based on the novel by Gillian Flynn, and published in 2006, and follows newspaper journalist Camille Preaker (Amy Adams – Batman Vs Superman: Dawn of Justice), who’s pulled away from her reportings in her dilapidated living area of St […]

Keeping Faith Episodes 1-3 – The DVDfever Review – Eve Myles

Keeping Faith is a new 8-part drama starring Torchwood‘s Eve Myles in the lead role, which starts next Thursday, July 12th, but which has already aired on BBC Wales. Aside from the cheesy title, lawyer Faith finds herself in rather a quandry as her husband and business partner, Evan (Bradley Freegard), goes AWOL one morning […]

The Bridge Season 4 on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

The Bridge Season 4 – The finale is here, and note that this review assumes you’ve seen seasons 1-3! 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 has done so, too. I guess there’s only so far […]

Stath Lets Flats Episodes 1-3 – The DVDfever Review

Stath Lets Flats centres around Stath (Jamie Demetriou), the son of a Greek estate agent proprietor, who lets out flats… and houses, but let’s not let facts get in the way of a snappy title. Demetriou plays up as a bit of an idiotic estate agent who’s quite crap at his job, as well as […]

Richard Osman’s House Of Games – The DVDfever Review

Richard Osman’s House Of Games is an early evening gameshow which Osman says is something he’s been wanting to get on the box for some years, but as he constantly reminds us, he only ever thought of himself as a TV producer, and never a presenter. However, it’s the success of BBC1’s Pointless which has […]

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 […]

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: The Complete Series – 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, […]
