Top TV picks for 2018

With 2018 almost over, I take a look back at a whole year’s worth of top TV.

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom

It’s a gripping, white-knuckle stampede of a movie as the Mesozoic comes crashing through the modern day.

Alienist vs. predator: ‘The Alienist’

Much like that time Jeremy Kyle did a US special, everything is so much worse in America if you’re poor.

Where the Wilde things are: ‘The Happy Prince’

The Happy Prince, the role Rupert Everett was born to play could well be his magnum opus.

London Symphony: cinema and the city

Ultimately, it is a beautifully shot and cleverly composed ode to the city I call home.

A female Doctor? It’s about time.

It is a crying shame that there are far too few original female leads being created out there on the telesphere. A female Doctor could be the beginning of something truly wonderful.

GLOWing review

Sorry Netflix, but this time, your ‘next big thing’ is on the ropes.

The Mummy promo poster

Mummy Issues

It is utter trash, but I loved it. I was very sceptical of this remake. But I was won over as soon as I saw the trailer. I love its look, its style and aesthetic.

Finders Keepers

The Keepers explores the case of Sister Cathy Cesnik, a young nun and school teacher who went missing in 1969 in Baltimore. Her body was found two months later dumped on remote scrubland, yet to this day her murder remains unsolved.

Redwater flows far from Albert Square

The opening credits are a work of art: a haunting score of sorrowful Celtic strings accompany scenes of the Irish coast, taking us to a place far away from Albert Square.
