Informer Series 1 – The DVDfever Review – Paddy Considine

Informer is a series where, upon seeing the title, I can never think of anything other than the 1992 rap by Snow of the same name, but now I’ve also reminded you of that, on with this new drama. As Emily (Jessica Raine) deals with her lost phone issues in a cafe, a gunman bursts […]

Patrick Melrose: The Complete Series – The DVDfever Review – Benedict Cumberbatch

Patrick Melrose is a drama I went into knowing absolutely nothing about it, but it has been previewed for some time, with Benedict Cumberbatch in the titular role. It’s based on the novels by Edward St Aubyn, with which I was unaware since I prefer seeing books in TV or film form. Set in London, […]

The Last Post Episode 1 – The DVDfever Review – BBC drama

The Last Post takes place in 1965 in Aden, Yemen, one of the oldest colonies in the British Empire. It’s a place where East meets West and with an oil refinery, it’s advertisted as a place of prosperity. In addition, the Queen calls it “A perfect example of colonial rule”, and out there, it’s so […]

The Devil of Christmas – Inside No.9 Christmas 2016 – Series 3 Episode 1 – The DVDfever Review

The Devil of Christmas is the first Christmas special for Inside No.9 and delivers a spoof of a 1977 seasonal programme, shot in 4:3, complete with intentional bad acting, there’s a camera coming into shot on purpose, continuity goofs, actors eating at a table who never actually dig in to any of the food, and […]

Fortitude Episode 6 – The DVDfever Review

Fortitude Episode 6 starts with a flashback, jumping a few episodes back to when Frank was having it away with Elena. Jules is seen heading out without a hat on, and is chanced upon by Henry, who insists frostbite can severely knacker your ears and wants her to take his hat because he doesn’t live […]

Fortitude Episode 5 – The DVDfever Review

Fortitude Episode 5 didn’t really help the cause for this overhyped series as it was merely treading water throughout, at a time when the series, as a whole, has been doing little else. It starts off with Ronnie teaching his daughter all about glaciers while they’re surrounded by them, then cuts to Shirley chancing upon […]

Fortitude Episode 4 – The DVDfever Review

Fortitude Episode 4 begins by still treading water which it’s done for the majority of its existence so far, with DCI Morton (Stanley Tucci) going for a nosey around Charlie’s abode, not realising there’s a houseguest already inside – that weird chap who was handed a gun by Dan Anderssen (Richard Dormer) in the second […]

Fortitude Episode 3 – The DVDfever Review

Fortitude Episode 3 begins with DCI Morton (Stanley Tucci) being introduced to Markus Huseklepp (Darren Boyd sporting a dodgy Norwegian accent) and his girlfriend Shirley Allerdyce (Pride‘s Jessica Gunning), with the former declaring, “you cannot die here or be buried here, because anything buried never decays. It’s a forensic treature house”, and immediately, again, Fortitude […]

Fortitude Episodes 1 and 2 – The DVDfever Review

Fortitude‘s overhyped first two episodes have left me feeling – Nordic noir? More like Nordic Meh! This one-off series (which, no doubt if ratings do well will get commissioned for another), is set in a fictional town in Spitsbergen, Svalbard, above the Arctic circle – so, cue a character looking at the Northern Lights in […]
