Chewing Gum Season 2 (2017) – TV Review

Following on from the great reception to Season 1, with a show that felt so unique and fresh, meant Michaela Coel had a big challenge on her hands, but she took it in her stride and ran with. This second season is better than the first, even if only slightly, and it feels even more […]

Chewing Gum (2015) – TV Review

Michaela Coel recently set the world alight with her remarkable drama ‘I May Destroy You’ (my review of that coming tomorrow morning) but before that, she became hugely popular due to writing and starring in this Channel 4 comedy. This is a very different show as it doesn’t tackle some of the darker issues ‘I […]

Crashing (2016) – TV Review

In 2020, Phoebe Waller-Bridge is one of the hottest names in town, with her incredible talent recognised by wide ranging audiences and awards bodies alike, but back in 2016 she was a mostly unknown talent. However, in the space of around 6 months, both ‘Crashing’ and ‘Fleabag’ launched and changer her career forever. ‘Crashing’ is […]

Derry Girls Season 2 (2019) – TV Review

In 2018, ‘Derry Girls’ came racing onto our TV screens with a fresh and totally u wide angle to look at the teenage coming of age comedy, with a look at a group of (mostly) girls, and also having them growing up during ‘The Troubles’ in Derry. In that first season, the show was not […]

Britain’s Corona Virus Catastrophe: Did the Government Get It Wrong? Dispatches (2020) – TV Review

There will be numerous documentaries and films about this crisis in years to come, when we hopefully have defeated the virus and have the benefit of hindsight. However, it’s also necessary for documentaries to be made about the present day, and that is what happens here. This unbias but absolutely unflinching documentary lays clear the […]

Deadwater Fell (2020) – TV Review

Following his roles over the last decades in things like; Doctor Who, Broadchurch, and Good Omens, David Tennant is firmly established as one of the finest actors in Britain, so anything he is in is sure to attract attention. This is the main reason I watched Deadwater Fell, and by the end of the show, […]

Friday Night Dinner Season 6 (2020) – TV Review

This is one of those shows that you either like or you don’t. It has a very particular style of humour, a family related farce. I personally really enjoy it. While this season was certainly up and down, probably more so than any of the previous seasons, it was nice to be able to switch […]
