Liverpool Sound and Vision Rating * * * * *

Cast: Jaygann Ayeh, Reece Shearsmith, Rory Kinnear, Bill Paterson, Marcia Warren, Steve Pemberton, Hattie Morahan, Helen Monks, Tanya Franks, Kevin Eldon.

It is almost impossible to get anything 100 percent right in a half hour comedy, it needs so much to go according to plan, to hit every note possible and still have the conductor enough room to prise out just a little more from the lead and the passionate soprano on the edge of the stage.

Beauty And The Beast. Film Review.

Liverpool Sound and Vision Rating 7/10

Cast: Emma Watson, Dan Stevens, Luke Evans, Kevin Kline, Josh Gad, Hattie Morahan, Haydn Gwynne, Gerard Horan, Ray Fearon, Ewan McGregor, Ian Mckellen, Emma Thompson, Nathan Mack, Audra McDonald, Stanley Cadenza, Clive Rowe, Adrian Schiller.


Heralded as one of the great Disney classics of all time, Beauty and the Beast is a scintillating tale of compassion over anger, of love over objectivity and quite rightly has become engrained in the heart of those who have taken its message of purity and simplicity against force and prejudice to its true place in the psyche; love conquers all they say and yet sometimes love is not quite enough to warrant taking a much loved animated film and turning into a live action feature, sometimes love just isn’t enough.

Doctor Who: Doom Coalition 1, The Satanic Mill. Audio Drama Review. Big Finish.

Liverpool Sound and Vision Rating 7.5/10

Cast: Paul McGann, Nicola Walker, Hattie Morahan, Mark Bonnar, Matthew Cottle, Ewan Bailey.

And did those feet in ancient times…take on all the evil and trickery thrown at humanity and try to save the people of Earth or did they run? The Doctor never runs unless he has to, unless there is a specific reason and as he enters the end game against the terrifying Timelord known as The Eleven, the thought of running would not have been held against him or his two companions Liv Chenka and Helen Sinclair; for in the darkness of The Satanic Mill no light truly shines in hope.

The trouble with time travel for the novice is that it can lead to the most peculiar syndrome of just aimlessly walking about and staring at things as if they had come from another planet, let alone another period in time.

Doctor Who: Doom Coalition, The Red Lady. Audio Drama Review.

Liverpool Sound and Vision Rating 8.5/10

Cast: Paul McGann, Nicola Walker, Hattie Morahan, Caroline Langrishe, David Yelland, John Voce.

Sometimes all a Timelord needs in life is a little mystery, a little horror to stir their blood. It is what makes life that little more spark filled, a little more intriguing and whilst it is only a handful of Timelords hold fast to this ethos, for the everyday, for the ordinary person, it is a staple of life that makes the heart race and pump faster, it is the human factor that makes life so sweet.

Mr. Holmes, Film Review. Picturehouse@F.A.C.T., Liverpool.

There is perhaps a question of whether age diminishes the achievements that have been made in youth or whether to be seen as fallible, to be seen as mortal actually enhances the great strides made when life was to be moulded, when Time was not feared and the weakness that must come to us all as frailty and memory forsake the owner.

Some writer’s lives are even more colourful and incident packed than those they create, some have the lives thrust upon them and some, a select few, such as Arthur Conan Doyle have lives that make reading a sheer work of art.

With Anna Maxwell Martin’s character having departed the confines of London to go abroad with her husband, the team is one woman short but where better to look for a replacement than the colleague the women of The Bletchley Circle saved from hanging in the previous two part story.
