Horrible Histories: The Movie – Rotten Romans on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

Horrible Histories: The Movie – Rotten Romans brings the series to the big screen (for the second time, following 2015’s Shakespeare comedy, Bill), and begins with Claudius (portrayed – as with the 1976 TV series – by Derek Jacobi) being very unwell due to poison, but a quick vomit joke makes him feel a lot […]

Cold Call – The DVDfever Review – Channel 5 drama

Cold Call is a new four-part drama over four nights where the first thing I noticed is that Sally Lindsay‘s house is a damn sight more tidy than mine! Okay, it turned out it wasn’t her’s, as June (Lindsay) was standing over man’s bed before it cut to the opening credits. After that, she was […]

Prevenge on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review – the film Kill Bill should’ve been

Prevenge is what Kill Bill should’ve been. That may sound like a bold statement, but while Quentin Tarantino’s first three films were superb, the Kill Bill double-bill faltered. The Bride told how she went on a “roaring rampage of revenge” and how “I roared. And I rampaged. And I got bloody satisfaction.” Really? She only […]

Little Boy Blue Episode 1 – The DVDfever Review

Little Boy Blue is a four-part drama based around the horrific real life situation of a drive-by shooting from a bike which hit young Rhys Jones, an 11-year-old boy, a Harry Potter fan like most children, a supporter of Everton FC, and out simply enjoying football practice. After the tragedy, which took place on Wednesday […]

Notes On Blindness on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

Notes On Blindness is now out on Blu-ray and you might be thinking… hang on, didn’t that come out last year? Well, yes and no – yes on DVD only, as while it rightly had critical acclaim as a film, no-one at Artificial Eye had the confidence to release the film on Blu-ray, too. Thankfully, […]

Notes On Blindness on DVD – The DVDfever Review

Notes On Blindness is the title of a compendium of C-90 audio cassette tapes recorded by Professor John Hull, portrayed here by Dan Skinner, who’s recently turned 40, so could be considered to be a bit too young for the part, but there are elements of artistic licence in that which you can overlook as […]

High-Rise on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

High-Rise is classed as one of those ‘unfilmable novels’, although I don’t read books, probably having been put off early in life by being given Duncton Wood to read while I was in hospital. It had 736 pages and didn’t grasp me at all. At school, we were forced to read George Orwell’s 1984. I […]

The Kennedys Episode 1: Secret Whisper – The DVDfever Review

The Kennedys is the sitcom from comedienne and author Emma Kennedy, based on her book recounting her childhood experiences in the late 1970s, – The Tent, The Bucket and Me. Emma is also known to a lot of people as “TV’s Emma Kennedy”, so-named during the Richard Herring-headlined radio comedy show, That Was Then, This […]

House of Fools Series 2 trailer – online now

House of Fools Series 2 very nearly didn’t come to light. It was rumoured that Vic & Bob‘s first-ever studio sitcom was about to be cancelled after one series because the ratings had fallen to around 800k by the end of the series, even though it was a huge fan favourite. Set in Bob’s home, […]

House of Fools recommissioned for series 2!
