‘Silk’: Episode 1 review

Reuniting Kavanagh QC writer Peter Moffat and one of the stars of his BAFTA-winning series Criminal Justice, Maxine Peake, BBC One’s sleek new legal drama is clearly aiming high as the latest in the channel’s production line of quality courtroom action.

‘Glee’: The Music Volume 4 CD review

Featuring an impressive 18 tracks from the first few episodes of Glee’s second season, currently airing on E4, the main thing that stands out about Volume 4 in relation to the show’s previous albums is just how much variety has been included, in terms of both style and of which characters’ songs have been chosen.

‘Marchlands’: Episode 4 review

Whilst the previous instalment of ITV1's supernatural drama Marchlands stoked up the scares and chills, Episode 4 holds back on the jumps but fires up the mystery behind the titular house.

‘Being Human’: Series 3 Episode 5 review

After the exciting climax of last week’s episode, ‘The Longest Day’ sees things very much stripped back with a superb bottle episode. Nobody has to use their supernatural powers, but that doesn’t mean that nobody bares their fang.

‘Spooks’: Series 9 DVD review

Since 2002, spy drama Spooks has consistently ranked among the best the BBC has to offer, blending high-octane action with unnervingly topical storylines - but can it keep up the pace?

‘Title Design with Momoco’ BAFTA event

On Wednesday, BAFTA hosted a ‘masterclass’ talk by UK design duo Momoco, creators of title sequences for the likes of Misfits, Luther and Eleventh Hour, as well as the films Hard Candy and Alien vs Predator.

‘South Riding’: Episode 1 review

BBC One’s new Sunday evening period drama is no gentle, quiet or quaint look back at an innocent, idyllic age. South Riding has bite, blackness and resonances that ring true even 75 years on from the era in which it is set.

‘Psych’: Season 3 DVD review

Light-hearted US crime procedural series Psych follows Shawn Spencer, played by James Roday, who is used the Santa Barbara Police Department to solve crimes.

‘Skins’: Series 5 Episode 4 review

The character of Liv had been a bit of a mystery up until last week, when we saw a glimpse of this promiscuous easy going girl who would claim to have morals but was alien to the concept of self control.
