Temple Series 1 – The DVDfever Review – Mark Strong

Temple stars Mark Strong as surgeon Daniel Milton, whose wife, Beth (Catherine McCormack), has died and this leads him to running an operating room from underneath the Temple Underground station in London, which is a perfectly natural reaction, yes? However, there are some people who can’t wait to be top of the NHS waiting list, […]

1917 – Trailer 1 – Benedict Cumberbatch

1917 has a feel of Saving Private Ryan about it, as the soldiers are tasked with delivering a message to stop a situation which would lead to 1600 men dying… including the brother of one of the soldiers. Directed by Sam Mendes (loved Jarhead and American Beauty; hated Road To Perdition, Skyfall and Spectre), I […]

Good Omens Episode 1 – The DVDfever Review – David Tennant, Michael Sheen

Good Omens poses the opener that you might’ve thought that the universe began 14 billion years ago, and the Earth, 4.6bn years ago, but this series confirms that it all began on Sunday 21st October 4004 BC, at 9am… Sounds plausible. Whatever you believe, God is a woman – voiced by Frances McDormand, and Earth […]

Two For Joy – The DVDfever Cinema Review – Daniel Mays

Two For Joy begins with the last day of school for Vi (Emilia Jones, daughter of Aled Jones and she was brilliant opposite Guy Pearce in Brimstone), but life is far from easy for her.

The Interrogation of Tony Martin – The DVDfever Review – Steve Pemberton

Mother’s Day – The DVDfever Review – Warrington bomb BBC drama

Mother’s Day relives the harrowing day on Saturday, March 20th 1993, the day before Mother’s Day, and the day the IRA bombed Warrington, claiming the lives of young 12-year-old Tim Parry and 3-year-old Johnathan Ball. The bombs didn’t go off at the same time, but as everyone was running away from the first, some would […]

The Limehouse Golem – Trailer 1 – Bill Nighy

The Limehouse Golem is a series of murders which shook its community to the point where people believe that only a legendary creature from dark times – the mythical so-called Golem – must be responsible…. like you do. The film has a good cast, but I wasn’t gripped by the trailer. Perhaps that’s down to […]

Against The Law – The DVDfever Review – Daniel Mays

Against the Law centres around as Peter Wildeblood (Daniel Mays) in a drama based on his autobiography, and as part of BBC’s Gay Britannia season, about how it’s 50 years this year since it was rightly legalised to be homosexual. However, what I did learn from this drama, is that the law could’ve been put […]

Born To Kill Episode 1 – The DVDfever Review

Born To Kill is a four-parter which centres on Sam (Jack Rowan), a young lad who gets a taste for being around dead people, given that mum Jenny (Romola Garai, right with Rowan) works as a nurse at the local hospital, although she’s not aware he’s collecting little trophies from those who have passed away. […]

Guerrilla: The Complete Series – The DVDfever Review – Idris Elba drama

Guerrilla is set in London, 1971, a time of racism and white people against black people, a time I’d like to think we’ve got far away from, although even today, the police are stuck in that horrendous stone age. Dom RobinsonReviewer of movies, videogames and music since 1994. Aortic valve operation survivor from the same […]
