Years And Years: The Complete Series – The DVDfever Review – Russell T Davies

Years And Years is a new drama from Russell T Davies, whose work has had a chequered past with me, in that I really enjoyed some, but didn’t like others. This starts off as a seemingly normal family drama, to the point where I wondered if anything was going to happen at all. I knew […]

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 […]

Hang Ups Series 1 – The DVDfever Review – Stephen Mangan

Hang Ups is, effectively, another of those ‘one room’ comedies, this one the house of Richard Pitt (Stephen Mangan), a therapist whose business collapsed, so today is Day One of working from home (so, a whole house rather than just a room, but it’s mostly what we see through the ‘eye’ of his laptop camera), […]

Paddington 2 on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

Paddington 2: This Time It’s Personal… no, that was Jaws IV: The Revenge, but both feature individuals who are little alien in their respective environments because they’re getting hassled by ‘the man’. There’s a complex plot about how Aunt Lucy’s 100th birthday is coming up, and the little bear cub decides he should get her […]

W1A Series 3 Episode 1 – The DVDfever Review

W1A enters its third series, so is doing brilliantly well, given that it was spawned from the two-series Twenty Twelve, which did for the London Olympics what The Thick Of It did for politics. That said, this is rumoured to be the W1A‘s last. This time, the BBC is heading towards its charter renewal, and […]

Bridget Jones’ Baby – Even men will like it! – The DVDfever Cinema Review

Bridget Jones’ Baby – let’s get this right from the start. For me, that’s the title, NOT “Bridget Jones’s Baby”. Who puts the extra, redundant ‘s’ in these things? Probably the same people who say ‘forward slash’ in a web address, when it’s just ‘slash’. You’d only have a ‘back slash’ if you had an […]

Cider With Rosie (2015) – The DVDfever Review

Cider With Rosie is based on the late Laurie Lee‘s novel, partly autobiographical, telling the story of his growing up coming-of-age story set in the Cotswolds, in Gloucestershire, staring off during World War I and continuing afterwards. However, the actual scene featuring the drinking of cider with Rosie only featured in one scene. Is this […]
