Into every family remains one forgotten member, one who was there at the very beginning and saw some of the early stories, the heartaches and the extreme highs; every family has one and yet some have deserved to be amongst the biggest names.

The Testament of Youth is such that it carries more weight at times than the blinkered, narrow-minded view point of a generation that doesn’t see the damage it has wrought.

The Pride, Theatre Review. Trafalgar Studios, London.

Liverpool Sound and Vision Rating * * * * *

Cast: Hayley Atwell, Harry Hadden-Paton, Mathew Horne, Al Weaver.

Occasionally a play grabs you by the hand and takes you to places that you never thought you would ever see performed on stage, such was the power of Alexi Kaye Campbell’s writing and the absolute conviction of Hayley Atwell, Harry Hadden-Paton, Mathew Horne and Al Weaver’s performances and the nature of the subject made The Pride compelling, forceful and required watching.

Life Of Crime, Television Review. I.T.V.

Liverpool Sound and Vision Rating * * * *

Cast: Hayley Atwell, Richard Coyle, Joel Beckett, Con O’Neill, Amanda Drew, Julian Lewis Jones, Ruth McCabe, Stephen McDade, Ray Pantthaki, Amaranthe Partridge.

Everywhere you go these days Hayley Atwell appears to be. The reason of course that she has been in some very high profile television programmes, films and even audio plays in the last couple of years and that all stems down from the fact that in every part she plays she is so believable and can hold the camera’s and audience’s attention unlike almost any other female actor working today, only Maggie Smith perhaps can have the same plaudits laid at her feet.

Doctor Who, War Against The Laan. Big Finish Audio Play, 2.03. Review.

Liverpool Sound and Vision Rating * * * *

Cast: Tom Baker, Mary Tamm, David Warner, Hayley Atwell, Jane Slavin, Toby Hadoke, Hugh Fraser, Nicholas Biggs, John Dorney, Beth Chalmers.

With The Lann about to destroy Earth as billions of the species mistake the planet as their own personal birthing pool, the second part of the two part story by Nicholas Briggs takes on one of those great sidesteps and gives fans something else to chew over and digest. Rather than the thought of interplanetary war between two species, the subtext offers something different, something not implemented in the Doctor Who world for a long while.

Black Mirror, The Waldo Moment. Television Review.

Liverpool Sound and Vision Rating * * * *

Cast: Daniel Rigby, Chloe Pirrie, Jason Flemyng, Christina Chong, Pip Torrens, David Ajala, Amber Anderson, Kenneth Collard, Ed Gaughan, Tobias Menzies, Abigail Thaw.

Be careful what you wish for, it’s been an underlying theme for Charlie Brooker’s Black Mirror series. Whether it has been Hayley Atwell desiring to have one last moment with her husband who has been killed or the nightmarish and positively dystopian longing of perpetual retribution and televised public backlash for a heinous crime, the future has been a possibility; and decidedly and chillingly achievable.

The Earth is in peril once more and The Doctor and Romana are again caught up between aliens and humanity in what could be the end of all sentient life on the planet. However, the aliens are doing what they need to do to survive, there is a bigger villain at large and it seems they control everything, except for time.
