Care – The DVDfever Review – Sheridan Smith, Alison Steadman

Care is a new Jimmy McGovern drama which, for me, has come at a depressingly poignant time. We know that strokes can hit someone – mostly in their later years, but sometimes also in a person’s younger years. It does not discriminate. For Mary (Alison Steadman), it’s today, and it’s just about to happen, while […]

Butterfly: The Complete Series – 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 […]

Hold The Sunset Episode 1 – The DVDfever Review – John Cleese

Hold The Sunset is every travesty I expected, and is an easy wicket for its leads, Alison Steadman, John Cleese and Jason Watkins. Steadman plays Edith, a retired widow who finds recycling difficult – just like no-one does… and puts them in plastic bags within the bins, rather than just the items themselves (duh!). Oh… […]

Static – Comedy Playhouse 2017 – The DVDfever Review

Static is the final of three Comedy Playhouse sitcoms and gets off to a bad start as one of the sitcoms where the ‘star’ can’t think of a name for his character, hence comedian Rob Beckett is ‘Rob’. He has quit his job in London. Why would anyone just quit a job? They don’t grow […]

Stormy Monday Special Edition on Blu-ray and DVD combo – The DVDfever Review

Stormy Monday takes place during America Week in Newcastle-upon-Tyne, so events will be carried out over more than the one day that the name might imply. (Yes, it’s title of the 1948 song from T-Bone Walker, which appears in this film courtesy of the late BB King, but allow me that intro) As is admitted […]

Dad’s Army (2016) on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

Dad’s Army – the sheer mention of a movie remake of a once-classic TV series was enough to strike fear into the hearts of the nation. Probably more so than the threat of another World War… I never got into the TV series as it was rather past my time, even though many of an […]

Dad’s Army 2016 – Official Trailer #2 – Toby Jones

Dad’s Army is the classic TV series from the 1960s which, shock horror, just did not do a lot for me as it was before my time, but my parents loved it. Led by Arthur Lowe, who I remember from the Mr Men books narration, as Capt. George Mainwaring, the sitcom ran for nine series, […]

Dad’s Army 2016 – Don’t make it, Pike! – New poster

Dad’s Army is the classic TV series from the 1960s which, shock horror, just did not do a lot for me as it was before my time, but my parents loved it. Led by Arthur Lowe, who I remember from the Mr Men books narration, as Capt. George Mainwaring, the sitcom ran for nine series, […]
