Doctor Who: World Enough And Time. Television Review.

Liverpool Sound and Vision Rating * * * * *

Cast: Peter Capaldi, Pearl Mackie, Matt Lucas, Michelle Gomez, John Simm, Oliver Lansley, Paul Brightwell, Alison Lintott, Nicholas Briggs.

To the coy Mistress, all will come to pass when she meets her former self, till then “Had we but world enough, and time” then perhaps the puzzle and the death of a friend might be more easily dealt with but then nothing is that simple in the world of the two part finale and especially not in the realm of Time and the Doctor.

The streets of Oxford will be poorer for the fact that Lewis, one of the true greats of British Crime Drama, has been allowed to finish before its time. Robbie Lewis, a man taught by the best that the dreaming spires of Oxford could wish to have investigating its murders and foul deeds, a man to whom honour was all and a man who came back after riding into the sunset, this was a man with a past so knotted in the streets of Oxford that to lose him, the audiences might find themselves bereft and asking What Lies Tangled?

Most weddings end up feeling like murder so why not have Sherlock Holmes somewhere in the room to bring out the best in the proceedings?

Les Enfants Terribles To Bring Award Winning Show To The Unity Theatre.

For over 10 years, Les Enfants Terribles have been dedicated to creating innovative, inspirational and exciting theatre that continually challenges and transports audiences to weird and wonderful worlds. On Wednesday 10th April the company comes to the Unity Theatre, Liverpool with their award-winning Edinburgh Fringe sell-out show The Trench.

The Trench, which is written and stars award-winning Oliver Lansley (Kenny Everett in B.B.C.4’s The Best Possible Taste) blends live music, puppetry and physical performance as not everything in the darkness of the trench is what it seems when a strange world is discovered beneath the mud and death. Inspired by the true story of a miner who became entombed in a tunnel during World War One, this is an epic journey of salvation as the boundaries between reality and fantasy blur, as he questions what’s real, what’s not and whether it even matters?

The lives of those that make us laugh are often beset by some inner lingering sadness or conflicting turmoil. So it seems is the absolute truth to the life of Kenny Everett, a man who had his fingers on the pulse of a nation before they realised he had whipped out his musical comedy stethoscope and asked them to giggle.
