TV Review: Killing Eve Season 3 (So Far)

TV Editor James Nash takes a look at the first few episodes of Season 3 of Killing Eve “Poor Kenny”. Ah, Konstantin — truer words were never spoken. Killing Eve has never been a show to play by the rules; if there’s one constant it’s that it knows how to shock. Killing off a loveable […]Read More

TV Review: ‘Quiz’ is the Dose of Cultural Nostalgia We

ITV’s Quiz takes us back to a yet another time in British history where coughing caused a scandal… There’s a delicious sense of tacky, zeitgeisty Britishness running throughout Quiz, a three-part limited series that aired on ITV last week.

TV Review: Game of Thrones S8E6 – ‘The Iron Throne’

‘Do not be sad that it is over.

Tall, rotund, mousy haired, ape-like, inept, racist, ridiculous, and on the ragged edge of being acceptable. These are but a few descriptions that have befallen the figure of Jeremy Clarkson –  the famed 56-year-old broadcaster, originally from Doncaster, who is now a popular household name – whether spoken with humorous smiles, or with hateful exasperation.
