Sport has changed, in many ways it has become sterile, predictable and staid, the problem can be placed at the door of many reasons, some will point the finger at the amount of money flowing into the game of football, motor racing, tennis and all those mass spectator sports in between, the amount of airtime afforded, especially in Europe to football, others will perhaps suggest that the problem lays at the door of personality and rivalry. So little of either, so few names that are willing to go beyond the rehearsed answers, so few that are not ruled by emotion rather than the P.R exercise, sport in many ways was so much more thrilling and dramatic before wall to wall coverage on television.

Every profession has the pop stars of their day, the showmen and women, the extroverts and the gregarious who live for the acclaim, the prestige and the privilege it brings. The artist, the poet, the actor, the musician and the surgeon, all have their theatres, all have one person who plays to the crowd and relishes the sense of power it brings.

There is always a deep meaning to art that might not be first gleaned upon by the layman or the average discerning follower of artistic fashion, just as there is always a hidden motive and significance to murder. Both schools of interpretation look deeply and find sense where they must, both offer value and worth to human understanding and yet murder never imitates art but art is playful in its appreciation of the blackest of all deeds.

Liverpool Sound and Vision Rating 9/10

Cast: Peter Capaldi, Jenna Coleman, Samuel Anderson, Frank Skinner, David Bamber, John Sessions, Daisy Beaumont, Janet Henfrey, Christopher Villiers, Foxes, Jamie Hill.

Death stalks the Orient Express, an unseen killer picking of the passengers one by one and with the bodies starting to stack up, it can only be time for the stiff upper lip and slightly lunatic outlook of a madman in a blue box and the mysterious beautiful companion to address the situation and tie up the loose ends.
