Sherlock, The Hounds Of Baskerville. Television Review.

Originally published by L.S. Media. January 9th 2012.

L.S. Media Rating ****

Cast: Benedict Cumberbatch, Martin Freeman, Russell Tovey, Amelia Bullmore, Clive Mantle, Rupert Graves, Gordon Kennedy, Mark Gatiss, Sasha Behar, Una Stubbs.

The second of three new stories for the world’s greatest consulting detective, Sherlock Holmes, sees Mark Gatiss and Steven Moffat bring the wonderful and tantalising story of The Hound of  the Baskervilles completely up to date and leave the Victorian era behind completely and utterly forever.

Pirates! In An Adventure With Scientists. Film Review.

Originally published by L.S.Media. April 15th 2012.

L.S. Media Rating *****

Cast: Hugh Grant, David Tennant, Imelda Staunton, Salma Hayek, Martin Freeman, Lenny Henry, Brendan Gleeson, Brian Blessed, Russell Tovey, Ashley Jensen, Jeremy Piven.

So the truth is out, Queen Victoria was a lover of fine dining of exotic endangered animals including panda bear. Charles Darwin looked suspiciously related to his manpanzee Mr. Bobo and pirates are just as nice and thoughtful, well-spoken people who plunder their way across the high seas only because there is a shiny trophy at the end of the year. At least this is how it works in the utterly absorbing world of Aardman Animations and the world of stop-motion film.

Walking The Dogs, Sky Arts. Television Review.

Originally published by L.S. Media. June 2nd 2012.

L.S. Media Rating **

Cast: Eddie Marsan, Emma Thompson, Russell Tovey, Bryony Afferton.

The latest in the Sky Arts Playhouse Presents series, Walking The Dogs, tackles the very real life moment when in 1982 Michael Fagan broke into Buckingham Palace.  This event caused a sensation, resulting in a media fury as it was revealed he had gained entry to the Queen’s bedroom and chatted with her about a variety of subjects.
