Summer Of Rockets is a new Stephen Poliakoff drama set around the beginning of the Cold War, circa 1957/58, and while I’ve not really been able to get into his earlier works, this one did seem quite accessible from the start.

Traitors Episodes 1 and 2 – The DVDfever Review – Keeley Hawes

Traitors is a new World War II drama which looked stylish from the trailers, and I thought was going for an Allied-style approach, as that’s a modern WW2 movie, but is it as entertaining in its own right? Well, it’s sort-of WW2, since it’s 1945 and the war is coming to a close. You’d think […]
