‘Being Human’: Series 3 Episode 6 review

Following last week’s dark and intense instalment, things are a little lighter here. In a nicely written episode with a likeable new character, George faces up to some family issues, while the police begin to circle Mitchell.

‘Monroe’: Episode 1 review

The spectre of one of the great modern fictional TV doctors looms over Monroe like Banquo’s ghost haunting Macbeth, but Monroe isn’t House remade for the UK; it’s Cracker remade in a hospital - and that’s a good thing.

‘Mad Dogs’: Episode 3 review

If last week's episode of Sky1's sunshine-fuelled new drama was about a woman disrupting the lives of men, then this week's was most definitely about how men disrupt one another, despite their "friendship".

‘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?
