The X Files Revisited: 3.23 Wetwired

The X Files ran for nine seasons and two movies, charting the efforts of Agents Mulder and Scully in their search for the unexplained.

With 202 episodes, there is simply too much to cover every episode; instead we’ll pick the…

TV Review: Doctor Who – Heaven Sent

The penultimate episode of Doctor Who this week wasn’t so much a television programme as a barn-storming showcase of BBC talent. Picking up where last week’s episode left off, after the tragic death of companion Clara Oswald (Jenna Coleman), Heaven Sent saw Peter Capaldi’s Doctor tele-ported to a mysterious prison castle. Pursued by a terrifying yet slow-moving cloaked monster, known as The Veil, The Doctor’s only escape is to confess truths to the beast just before it kills him, although this only really serves to buy him more time to try to solve the mystery of his surroundings. Heartbreakingly, in…

Basic Instinct

It’s a real shame that Hollywood doesn’t have Paul Verhoeven around anymore. He had an unique talent of bringing all the entertainment to big screen while also being being able to push his projects slightly beyond what would be normally acceptable. To give them a bit of an edge and be subversive. That being the excessive violence of RoboCop, the Nazi satire of Starship Troopers or, in fact, even over the top cheesiness of Showgirls. Basic Instinct was one of those irreverent films. While the premise is ridiculous and would normally offer us yet another cheap erotic thriller, the execution…

Doctor Who: 9.11 Heaven Sent

If you’re going to devote an extended episode to just one actor, you had better be sure that the acting is top notch, the direction flawless and the script electric. Fortunately, the penultimate episode of Doctor Who series nine nails all three.To be fair, the ingredients were there; this year Peter Capaldi has gone from strength to strength and I am still mesmerised over his speech in The Zygon Inversion. It was Steven Moffat and returning director Rachel Talalay that had the harder job but Moffat wastes not a single moment with superfluous dialogue while still giving audiences an engaging…
