The Driver episode 1 review

24 September 2014 9:06 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

New 3-part BBC crime drama The Driver, starring The Walking Dead's David Morrissey, gets off to a very strong start…

This review contains spoilers.

In BBC One’s The 7:39, which aired earlier this year, David Morrissey played a married father of two in his forties, who was unappreciated at home, pushed around at work, and bored with his predictable lot. The way out of that particular rut came in the form of an affair with a younger woman. In The Driver, a new three-part drama written by Danny Brocklehurst (Exile, Accused, Shameless), Morrissey’s character is in much the same situation but chooses crime as his escape route from monotony.

Male mid-life boredom and frustration thus gets taken for another TV spin, this time as the premise for a crime thriller stylishly directed by Jamie Payne (Doctor Who, Ashes To Ashes). Following in the footsteps of Breaking Bad’s Walter White, »

The Driver; Secrets and Lies review gripping drama that leaves you rigid with unrelieved tension

23 September 2014 10:00 PM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

David Morrissey shines in a bitterly realistic three-parter about a depressed cabbie turning to crime on BBC1. Australian import Secrets and Lies about the fallout of a childs murder is almost as good over on Channel 5

You scored 14, Vinces doctor tells him. You need to score 15 before I can comfortably prescribe medication. So what are you saying? replies Vince flintily. Im one point short of depression?

Last nights opening episode of BBC1s The Driver (the first of three) began with a car chase, but the real thrill lay in this compact little exchange, whose succinct evocation of Vinces mental state, unforgiving intelligence and self-awareness and of a pointlessly bureaucratic, endlessly frustrating world, promised much. The rest of the hour delivered, thanks not only to the lovely, wry, elliptical script from creators Danny Brocklehurst and Jim Poyser but also, of course, to the heavy actorly artillery they wielded.

Gotham, Peaky Blinders, The Flash: 17 autumn TV shows you will love

15 September 2014 8:28 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

The evenings are getting shorter, you've already seen the first festive cards for sale at your local supermarket and The X Factor is back on Saturday nights. To borrow a phrase - winter is coming.

But don't despair, because there is much more to autumn TV in 2014 than Cheryl Cole and Simon Cowell bickering over a bunch of karaoke singers. Don't believe us? Check out our list of 17 must-watch shows, which mean that you might as well cancel your plans until Christmas.

1. Glue - E4

A bloke from Rizzle Kicks, a writer from This Is England and lots of horses. It doesn't sound like an obvious hit, but Glue is most definitely worth getting excited about.

Skins crossed with Midsomer Murders and an added sinister, bleak edge, is probably the best description for this eight-parter, which will have you hooked from its full-on (and full frontal) opening sequence.

2. The Apprentice »
