Climate Change: The Facts – The DVDfever Review – David Attenborough

Climate Change: The Facts contains at least two facts: (a) the 2019 date of production at the end, and (b) it’s presented by David Attenborough. David Attenborough makes a lot of capital out of how mankind is destroying the environment by doing unnecessary things like flying around the world. He points this out every time […]

Ghosts Episodes 1 and 2 – The DVDfever Review – Horrible Histories cast

Ghosts basically shows us that Horrible Histories has finally made it to prime-time television, albeit with a bit more adult content at times, even if the language rarely steps above a U-certificate. The last known descendant of the Button House family is about to die, and when she shuffles off her mortal coil, the group […]

Naked Beach Episode 1 – The DVDfever Review – Channel 4 series

Naked Beach is full of people stripping off because they don’t like their own bodies, and so they’re forcing themselves on us, instead. Now, if this had been shown after the watershed, at 9pm, I think we’d have seen them in the ALLtogether, and when Naked Attraction is broadcast, it’s at 10pm, for at 8pm, […]

Don’t Forget The Driver Episodes 1 and 2 – The DVDfever Review – Toby Jones

Don’t Forget The Driver has blazed the trail for just one thing – you don’t often get a 30-minute comedy in a cinemascope 2.35:1-style ratio. And that’s all that surprised me in this incredibly limp new ‘comedy’ starring the prolific Toby Jones. As Peter Green (and, occasionally, his Australian brother Barry, via webcam), he just […]

Lizzie on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review – Chloë Sevigny, Kristen Stewart

Lizzie… Lizzie Borden. The woman who bludgeoned her parents to death with an axe. She makes some of the women I’ve met through online dating seem positively sane. The film begins on August 4th, 1892, the day of the attack, and the bodies are discovered by housekeeper Bridget Sullivan (Kristen Stewart), but Lizzie (Chloë Sevigny) […]

The Widow Episodes 1 and 2 – The DVDfever Review – Kate Beckinsale

The Widow is very timely as the first episode is set just after the clocks have gone forward. Okay, so on the day the episode is broadcast – April 8th, it’s over a week after this happened, but I actually saw this episode the day the clocks changed. Spooky! Anyhoo, Georgia Wells has lived a […]

Line Of Duty Series 5 Episodes 1-3 – The DVDfever Review

Line Of Duty Series 5 brings AC12 back to our screens for the first time since 2017, and for the first time in my years of TV reviews, the first episode of Line Of Duty has NOT been made available for previews. Usually, this means that a show stinks, so given the series’ pedigree to […]

Hanna Season 1 – The DVDfever Review – Amazon Prime

Hanna reboots the 2011 Saoirse Ronan thriller – which propelled her to the fore as the 16-year-old teenage assassin, and was a pretty decent movie – in an 8-part Amazon Prime TV series, with Esme Creed-Miles in the lead role. As a baby, she’s taken away by her new ‘Mum and Dad’, Erik (Joel Kinnaman […]

The Bay Episodes 1-5 – The DVDfever Review – Morven Christie

The Bay in this new drama is Morecambe Bay, the setting for a new police drama where Holly and Dylan Meredith – two 15-year-old twins who – didn’t come home from a trip to a youth club, and have gone missing. Assigned to the task is DS Lisa Armstrong (Morven Christie), and while I’m obviously […]

Cheat: The Complete Series – The DVDfever Review – Katherine Kelly

Cheat begins with University lecturer Dr Leah Dale (Katherine Kelly – Doctor Who spin-off Class) and final year student Rose (Molly Windsor – Three Girls) on opposite sites of a prison cell window, before we go back to the start of this four-parter, stripped across all of this week, as we find out how things […]
