The Little Drummer Girl Episode 1 – The DVDfever Review – Michael Shannon

The Little Drummer Girl is a new six-part drama which begins in West Germany, 1979, at the Diplomatic Residential area, Bad Godesbury where, thanks to an unfortunate set of circumstances, a bomb goes off with devastating circumstances. As the synopsis states, there are a number of deadly attacks targeting prominent Jewish figures across Europe over […]

There She Goes Series 1 – The DVDfever Review – David Tennant

There She Goes is a new comedy/drama which is based on a true story, which shines a light on the highs and lows of raising a daughter with a severe learning disability. I was drawn to this from the re-pairing of David Tennant (Bad Samaritan) and Jessica Hynes (W1A, Twenty Twelve) (Hey, Tennant & Hynes […]

Informer Series 1 – The DVDfever Review – Paddy Considine

Informer is a series where, upon seeing the title, I can never think of anything other than the 1992 rap by Snow of the same name, but now I’ve also reminded you of that, on with this new drama. As Emily (Jessica Raine) deals with her lost phone issues in a cafe, a gunman bursts […]

Titans Episode 1 – The DVDfever Review – Netflix

Titans gives us a much darker and adult entry into the superhero world than we normally get, but this is a trend which is increasingly giving us more than we originally expected. Too much of what appears onscreen, these days, is always very 12-certificate-friendly (usually a PG-13 in the US), and I’m getting rather tired […]

The Ghost Monument – Doctor Who Series 11 Episode 2 – The DVDfever Review

The Ghost Monument begins where The Woman Who Fell To Earth left off – apart from this time we have some opening credits, now – with The Doctor (Jodie Whittaker) and the new trio of companions floating about in space and waiting for a Vogon Constructor Fleet to beam them up, but since Arthur Dent […]

Butterfly Episodes 1 and 2 – The DVDfever Review – Anna Friel

Butterfly is based around Max (Callum Booth-Ford), an eleven-year-old boy, who realises he’s not straight, nor gay, but transgender, choosing to dress up as a girl at home. This certainly makes for an interesting and different idea for a mainstream channel drama. One could argue that putting the idea in a child’s head may make […]

The Bisexual Episode 1 – The DVDfever Review – Maxine Peake

The Bisexual centres on couple Sadie (Maxine Peake) and Leila (Desiree Akhavan) who we’re told early on are working together “they get together as women in a male-dominated business”, although unless I blinked and missed it, we weren’t told what the business was. They both want kids and marriage, but New Yorker Leila is about […]

The Woman Who Fell To Earth – Doctor Who Series 11 Episode 1 – The DVDfever Review

The Woman Who Fell To Earth is the first episode of Doctor Who Series 11 (in the ‘new-Who’ era, discounting anything before 2005), and it has not one new broom, but two – Jodie whittaker is the new Doctor, and Chris Chibnall is overseeing everything. A lot of stick-in-the-muds have berated the choice of a […]

The Cry: The Complete Series – The DVDfever Review – Jenna Coleman

The Cry is certainly going to win awards… for being the most confusing drama of the year. This was instantly noticeable when the first episode opened with Jenna Coelman in two different timeframes, both facing the press, and as she leads on to say, “Everyone wants to look at you and judge you… look for […]

The Goodies: The Complete BBC Collection on DVD – The DVDfever Review

The Goodies were a trio I loved watching when growing up with Kitten Kong and the giant Dougal from The Magic Roundabout chasing them round outside being particularly memorable. While I won’t have seen them all back in the day, and without having the capacity to ‘binge’ on a boxset as is the modern want, […]
