I Am Nicola – The DVDfever Review – Vicky McClure

I Am Nicola centres around Nicola (Vicky McClure – Line of Duty), who’s very unsatisfied with her lot in life because, as a hairdresser, everyone else’s life sounds far more interesting than her’s, such as when she asks them what they’re doing for the weekend, while she has no plans whatsoever, other than to spend […]

Film Stars Don’t Die in Liverpool on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

Film Stars Don’t Die In Liverpool is set in the Scouse city in 1981, and it wasn’t until after I saw this that I discovered it was based on a true story. I hadn’t heard of her before and so that’s how I approached watching this which, at the start, finds actress Gloria Grahame (Annette […]

Babs – BBC Barbara Windsor drama – The DVDfever Review

Babs is a very hit and miss one-off drama about the life of British national treasure Barbara Windsor, who’s played by not one, not two, but a total of four actresses, plus the lady herself. Her youngest self is played by Florence Keen, giving great support for the titular lady when she started as a […]

The Good Karma Hospital Episode 1 – The DVDfever Review

The Good Karma Hospital is essentially Doc Hollywood meets Casualty, as fish-out-of-water-cum-aspiring-hopeful junior doctor Ruby Walker (Game Of Thrones‘ Amrita Acharia) goes on a passage to India to work in a big fancy hospital that trumps the NHS, not realising you’ve got to slum it for the first year in a run-down hole like this. […]

Shut Up And Dance – Black Mirror Series 3 Episode 3 – The DVDfever Review

Shut Up and Dance is the third episode in this third series of Black Mirror, and the best of the new run so far. After a mysterious car park scene, the bulk of the story centres around young burger joint employee Kenny (Alex Lawther). Thanks to his sister letting his laptop attract some malware, and […]

Cold Feet Series 6 Episode 1 (2016) – The DVDfever Review

Cold Feet returning… The more I heard about this – with the cast repeatedly telling us, here and there, that there is no way that Helen Baxendale would return as a ghost – made me think all the more that there is EVERY way that Helen Baxendale would return as a ghost! But, no, she […]

Undercover Episode 1 – The DVDfever Review

Undercover begins centred around Maya (Sophie Okonedo), a laywer who’s spent the last 20 years campaigning for Rudy Jones (Dennis Haysbert), a man imprisoned for a murder he did not commit. However, he’s jailed in Louisiana where such a crime attracts the death penalty. Given that Haysbert played an assassinated President in 24, and now […]

Line Of Duty Series 3 Episode 1 – The DVDfever Review

Line Of Duty Series 3 begins with Operation Damson, and a dawn raid on a man who is expected to be armed and extremely dangerous, possibly on his way to carry out a gangland execution. The suspect took off in a fast car, was cornered by the police armed-response van but then escaped on foot, […]

From Darkness Episode 1 – The DVDfever Review

From Darkness should’ve begun with former cop Claire Church (Anne-Marie Duff) re-enacting Al Pacino from The Godfather Part III bemoaning, “Just when I think I’m *out*, they pull me back *in*!” She quit the police force 16 years ago, but the continuity announcer attempted to instil some fear before it started with “her past is […]
