Broadchurch Series 2 episode 3 review
Broadchurch series 2 is nearing the halfway point and the third episode of the ITV drama continues to provide tension, shock and fantastic entertainment. The episode starts off immediately where last week’s ended. Lee (James D’Arcy) has kidnapped Claire Ripley (Eve Myles) and is being pursued by Alec Hardy (David Tennant). While this is going on, Beth Latimer’s (Jodie Whittaker) waters have broken and it’s up to Ellie Miller (Olivia...

The Gigantic Beard That Was Evil theatre review

The Gigantic Beard That Was Evil theatre review
More than an incredible title? Most broadly described as a modern take on Roald Dahl tales, The Gigantic Beard That Was Evil follows a far-too-normal town’s attempts to deal with the unknown in their midst that takes the form of a gigantic and undoubtedly evil beard. The play starts by establishing a world not too unlike our own before the inevitable arrival of the titular beard and the fallout for these wildly unprepared people now forced...

Broadchurch Series 2 episode 2 review
WARNING: POSSIBLE SPOILERS AHEAD Last week saw the ITV drama Broadchurch return with a fantastic series opener which saw murderer Joe Miller (Matthew Gravelle) deliver a shocking “not guilty” plea at his hearing. The series also introduced another subplot of Alec Hardy (David Tennant) revealing he was protecting Claire Ripley (Eve Myles) from her husband Lee (James D’Arcy), whom he thinks is the killer in the Sandbrook case. The second episode...

“Once upon a time, in a far off kingdom…” Into The Woods Soundtrack Review
As a film, Stephen Sondheim’s Into The Woods has been steeped in mysterious rumour since the early 1990s with numerous big names – Robin Williams, Danny DeVito, Susan Sarandon – attached. And when announced as commissioned by The Walt Disney Studios in 2013, the rumours once more abounded with possible casting choices and questionable script changes causing both outrage and delight for many Sondheim fans. With Into The Woods out in... 

WWE Best PPV Matches 2014 DVD Review

WWE Best PPV Matches 2014 DVD Review
Another year has come and gone, and it’s been a strange one for the company of World Wrestling Entertainment. We saw the rise of a new star in the name of Daniel Bryan, the return and dominance of the Beast, Brock Lesnar, as well as many other fantastic events, but all in all, the year has been unpredictable. If you had told me in 2013 we’d be getting a lot of these matches… well, I’d probably stare at you quizzically and...

Broadchurch Series 2 episode 1 review
WARNING: POSSIBLE SPOILERS AHEAD For eight weeks in 2013, the nation became obsessed with ITV’s crime drama Broadchurch, a show that told the story of a small town and how it dealt with a big tragedy.

Doctor Who Series 8 Christmas Special Review: Last Christmas

Doctor Who Series 8 Christmas Special Review: Last Christmas
Another Christmas means another British TV tradition: The Doctor Who Christmas Special. Whereas some may watch movies like Elf or Miracle on 34th Street or Die Hard, there’s always something for the Whovians – a very special hour of Doctor Who. Usually written by Steven Moffat. This year is no different. The Doctor (Peter Capaldi) is different this December 25th, but it’s still the tenth in the string of Doctor Who Christmas Specials... 

Bayonetta: Bloody Fate DVD review

Bayonetta: Bloody Fate DVD review
Bayonetta: Bloody Fate manages to retain the over-the-top nature of the videogame with a lot of action, crazy lines and fun references (yes, we do see her start up a motorcycle in that way). From Gonzo and director Fuminori Kizaki of Afro Samurai, Bloody Fate is a somewhat loose adaptation of Platinum Games’ videogame, which was released back in 2009, as the Umbran witch Bayonetta awakens after 500 years to retrieve her lost memories. Opening with...
