Why anyone would want to be friends with a novelist or any form of writer who sees the muse in almost anything is one of those rare questions that never truly gets answered; to be a friend of a writer is to open yourself up to the knowledge that some part of your personality might be the basis of a character’s reason for existing somewhere down the line.

Liverpool Sound and Vision Rating 5/10

Cast: Natalie Dormer, Aneurin Barnard, Shaun Evans, David Calder, Craig Parkinson, Oliver Chris, Peter Sullivan, Jessica Gunning, Elizabeth Rider, Richard McCabe, Will Keen, Tom Edden, Alex Beckett, Thomas Coombes.

There are moments in British history that are so worth preserving that to make a film or an epic television programme about them seems the most natural thing in the world to attempt to do; some though should only be attempted if the right cast is put in place to make History real and not just to pull in viewers.

The Musketeers: Trial And Punishment. Television Review.

Liverpool Sound and Vision Rating 9/10

Cast: Tom Burke, Santiago Cabrera, Howard Charles, Luke Pasqualino, Alexandra Dowling, Ryan Gage, Tamla Kari, Hugo Speer, Maimie McCoy, Marc Warren, Phil Rowson, Peter Sullivan, Alex Giannini, Charlotte Salt.

When the world turns on a single fateful decision to topple a King, the fall out is never going to be pretty, the lives that become embroiled in the plot, whether they know about it or not, are going to change, perhaps even ruined and the ultimate measure in Trial and Punishment is set, the pawns and the people placed in it all will feel the wrath of the King.

Ripper Street: Threads Of Silk And Gold. Television Review.

Liverpool Sound and Vision Rating * * * *

Cast: Matthew Macfadyen, Jerome Flynn, Adam Rothenberg, MyAnna Buring, David Wilmot, Damien Molony, Leanne Best, David Dawson, Frank Harper, Peter Sullivan, Frank McCafferty, Jassa Ahluwalia, Dale Leadon Bolger, Gillian Saker, Stephen Jones, Kirsty Oswald, Alexander Cobb, David Crowley, Scott Handy, Alfie Stewart, Bella Stewart-Wilson, Andrew Tieman, David Walsh.

The way that Ripper Street has incorporated the life of Detective Inspector Reid and his surroundings of Whitechapel, London and given the audience that watch this ever increasing popular programme a lesson in some of the more historical emergences of the time is never anything but gratifying.
