‘Line of Duty’ review: Season 3 concludes with a terrific finale

Personally speaking, Line of Duty 3‘s finale went on longer than it really should have. But that’s because I watched it twice, back-to-back. Gobbled it up and then immediately went back for seconds, and found it even better the second time. Honestly? I’ll probably go back in a couple of days and watch it again,...

‘The A Word’ finale review: Autism drama has been heart-warming and engaging

Without Joe’s singing at the start, there was an unsettling change of tone to start this season finale. Post-argument with Alison, dad Paul spent the night on the floor of his new restaurant gastropub prior to its soft launch. Pulling together, with future family discussions parked, it was all hands to the pumps, and Maurice finding...

‘Marcella’ Episode 4 review: Who is Grace’s killer?

Four episodes in and we’re still not in a position to comment on Marcella’s abilities as a detective – her reputation so far rests solely on the praise of boss Laura. Unquestionably, though, she has a talent for the criminal.  She smoothly adlibs her way out of last week’s discovery that she had been reviewing...

‘The Durrells’ Episode 4 review: ITV’s new family drama continues to charm

We’re over halfway through the six-part first season and ITV’s The Durrells feels like it’s been part of Sunday nights forever. Such is the quality of the production and Simon Nye’s writing that this series continues to charm and make this reviewer grin very broadly! Leslie continues to spiral out of control this week as...

‘The A Word’ review: Episode 5 stirred plenty of strong emotions

Peter Bowker’s compelling family drama continues to have us engrossed, this week revealing seismic fault lines in one relationship and a secret hidden in plain sight. Joe’s familiar morning routine was interrupted again this week, as his brewery van pickup was queried by a local bobby. Returned home in a police car, with bizarrely few...

‘Fear the Walking Dead’ review: ‘We All Fall Down’ lands on firmer ground

Instead of picking up the pace after last week’s cliffhanger, Fear the Walking Dead delivered another contemplative character piece this week, but with a thankfully higher level of success than the mediocre season premiere. ‘We All Fall Down’ is still recognisably cut from the same cloth as last week’s episode and this is far from...
