Jimmy Savile: A British Horror Story

I think I got a bit confused here, as there’s been loads of media rhetoric about the Steve Coogan-led dramatisation of the Savile story: and that’s what I was interested in.  It’s probably no...

The Stranger 0

The Stranger

For some reason our TV was suddenly inundated with Harlan Coben stories, so we picked this one on the strength of the casting – it seemed quite a decent mystery piece whose episodes left...

Killing Eve – Season 3

Hmm, seems I forgot to write anything about the first 2 seasons of this, also. Conflicted on this one – season 3 felt like it had some really confused/stationary moments… but at the same...

The Boys
