Code Of A Killer: tank tops, bad bobs and the dawn of DNA profiling

John Simm and David Threlfall star in ITV’s new crime thriller, which resurrects a grisly 1980s Midlands murder in painstaking detail

It’s well documented that in the Godfather movies, an orange is a symbolic portent of death. Don Corleone even makes some fake teeth out of orange peel to amuse his grandson, foreshadowing his heart attack. I suspect Michael Crompton had this in mind when scripting two-part police thriller Code Of A Killer, which opens with a close-up of a Feu Orange traffic-light air freshener dangling from a rear-view mirror. Its “delightful fragrance” was enough to turn your Ford Fiesta Mk II into a Terry’s Chocolate Orange on wheels. Dare we assume this one belongs to a harbinger of death?

A very specific caption tells us that we’re in Narborough, Leicestershire on 21 November 1983, 7.30pm. It’s the true story of the rape and murder of two teenage girls,

Two Teaser Trailers and Posters for the Rom-Com Love, Rosie Starring Sam Claflin and Lily Collins

  • Collider.com
Two teaser trailers and posters have been released for the rom-com Love, Rosie. Based on author Cecelia Ahern’s novel Where Rainbows End, the film stars Lily Collins (The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones) and Sam Claflin (The Hunger Games: Catching Fire) as best friends since school “who find that life often gets in the way of love but, true love just like true friendship, never dies.” Complications in their relationship ensue, causing the prospect of a romantic life together to be thrown into question. These teasers are cute and funny, although Collins telling Claflin that a girl he has a crush on is "out of his league" is preposterous. Claflin may be a good actor (I liked him in Catching Fire), but no one can convince me he isn't handsome.

Celebrating Jimmy McGovern's Cracker

  • Den of Geek
Feature Jamie Andrew 18 Oct 2013 - 07:00

Jamie salutes the might of Jimmy McGovern's Cracker, starring Robbie Coltrane and now celebrating its twentieth anniversary...

Whenever I'm asked to name the best TV dramas of all time I have no hesitation in trotting out the holy trinity of The Sopranos, The Wire and Breaking Bad. If I'm in a 'Top Ten' situation, the contest for the remaining seven places is usually fought between other Us shows. And then, mid-compilation, a feeling passes through me like I've just forgotten my nephew's birthday, and an angry Robbie Coltrane dive-bombs into my consciousness. 'Cracker...' I gasp. 'How could I have forgotten about Cracker?'

How indeed. Cracker is a beautiful and brutal cocktail of gruesome entertainment, savage social commentary and unflinching truth, brought to life by the angry genius of writer/creator Jimmy McGovern and the succulently human, career-defining performance of Robbie Coltrane
