After this 12th part of series three of Twin Peaks, there are only six episodes left, and there’s still a huge amount to tie up – if David Lynch is indeed in the mood to tie things up at all. Who knows what’s going to happen? Will the Dougie Jones/Good Coop issue be resolved –…

Review: Twin Peaks (S3 E10/18), Tuesday 17th July, Sky Atlantic

We’re now into the second half of this series – or 18 hour-long movie as David Lynch would have us approach it – and we’re still none the wiser when it comes to the fate of Dougie Jones/Good Coop. In this 10th episode, there were diversions, some unsettling scenes (in a more subtle way than…

Review: Twin Peaks (S3 E3&4/18), Tuesday 30th May, Sky Atlantic

After last week’s incredible, dark, unpredictable start to the much-anticipated third series of Twin Peaks, there was no telling where things might go in episode three.

Review: Twin Peaks (S3 E1&2/18), Tuesday 23rd May, Sky Atlantic

It has been a long time since 1990 – 27 years, maths fans – and since those heady days, when Twin Peaks took over the world for a short while, we’ve had all kinds of dramas on television that have elevated the medium to new heights. Just think, we’ve had The Wire, The Sopranos, Sex…

If you read our Quite Large Crime Drama Preview For 2017 (here if you haven’t), one of the things that included was the return of Twin Peaks, David Lynch’s era-defining crime show that crossed dimensions and introduced us to myriad much-remembered characters.

Twin Peaks releases first trailer

We’ve documented the rocky road the new series of Twin Peaks has travelled since it was announced that David Lynch’s seminal series was coming 25 years after we saw it last. But now it seems everyone has dotted the is and crossed the ts and production has started without any more hinderance. Which is good…

David Lynch and Kyle MacLachlan confirmed for new Twin Peaks

When the announcement was made that new Twin Peaks would be coming back in 2016, I must admit I was hugely excited. One of THE series from my formative years, it was an extraordinary journey into the dark heart of small-town northwest America; a whodunit wrapped up in layer upon layer of disturbing surrealism. Twin…

Twin Peaks to return for nine new episodes in 2016

Something’s been stirring in the pines for a few months now. A while back, fans of David Lynch’s scary, much-loved procedural-with-a difference, Twin Peaks, were getting in a tizz because there were all sorts of rumours that some new material was going to be forthcoming. At every turn Lynch did his best to dispel the rumours,…

Repeats of Twin Peaks to air on Syfy from September

If you’re going to have a conversation about the best crime drama of all time, Twin Peaks has to be a part of it. Many will dismiss David Lynch’s cryptic, surreal and amorphous opus as self-indulgent nonsense, but beneath all the layers and the wilful strangeness and the diversions (of which there were many), at its…
