It’s more or less as you were this week, with one notable exception – the first of three-part first series of the BBC’s adaptation of Robert Galbraith’s (JK Rowling) Strike novels. It stars Tom Burke and Holliday Grainger and it starts next Sunday (with an episode on the Monday and then the following Sunday). Enjoy! Continue reading
There are new episodes of Top Of The Lake: China Girl, Twin Peaks and I Know Who You Are this week, as well as the finale of Dicte (sadly, I just haven’t had time to watch it this time around). There’s also a new four-part series starting on BBC One starring new Doctor Who, Jodie Whittaker, playing, well, a doctor. Look out for new radio series, A Smalltown Murder, too. And just a quick note, I’ve been on a short break for the past several days, so apologies for the lack of posts. Continue reading
We’ve seen Jodie Whittaker before in the crime drama genre thanks to her brilliant performance in Boradchurch, but now she pops up in this four-part thriller on BBC One (where she’ll also be appearing on next year as some time traveller or other). In Trust Me, she plays Cath Hardacre, a caring and hard-working A&E nurse. However, when she raises her concerns about the standards slipping at the hospital her world takes a turn for the worse.

Elsewhere, Top Of The Lake: China Girl, Dicte and I Know Who You Are continue. Enjoy! Continue reading
One of the more anticipated dramas of the year is series two of Stranger Things. The horror/crime mash-up was a word-of-mouth megahit last year and the PR wheels have been turning for a month or so now. This weekend saw Comic-Con in San Diego produce all kinds of bits and pieces, but one of the things people were raving about was a full, proper trailer. You can see it after the jump… Continue reading
Two things of note this week: the start (eagerly awaited in this house) of Jane Campion’s fantastic Top Of The Lake: China Girl. I’ve seen the first two episodes and believe me… wow. Also starting this week is Against The Law, a one-off starring Daniel Mays and part of the BBC’s Queer season. Elsewhere, we say a fond farewell to Ripper Street. Enjoy! Continue reading
