What’s more horrifying than vampires, psychos, or zombies? Family gatherings, as we saw in this week’s Inside No. 9...
This review contains spoilers.
2.5 Nana's Party
This week’s episode of Inside No. 9, the second of this series to be directed by Steve Pemberton and Reece Shearsmith, took as its setting something that’s bound to induce a shiver down most spines – a family birthday party. The kind of enforced fun where only one person, at the most, actually wants to be there, and every hug between family members (hardly) hides years of petty resentments. Pemberton and Shearsmith have picked some incredibly scary places for both series one and two – a housebreak, a creepy old mansion, a locked wardrobe – but Nana’s Party shows that the domestic is what’s really dangerous, and a person’s loved ones can be the cruellest.

★★★☆☆ For his second feature as director - following on from the Emma Thompson-starring The Winter Guest (1997) - Alan Rickman brings audiences the period folly A Little Chaos (2014), a film as mildly diverting and inoffensive as its title suggests. Based on a true story and adapted from ex-Casualty star Alison Deegan's debut screenplay, the film tells of a most ostensibly mundane period of King Louis Xiv's tenure at Versailles, doing so in an entirely lightweight and likable manner that, though befitting a casual ITV costume drama, is saved by a wealth of assured hands both on and off screen. Set in 1682, Academy Award winner Kate Winslet plays widowed, green-fingered landscape designer Sabine De Barra.

Flickering Myth’s Matt Spencer-Skeen interviews stunt performer Lucy Cork about her career and work on the upcoming Mission Impossible – Rogue Nation…
Matt Spencer-Skeen: So Lucy, we’ve known each other from school days and I remember you were always very sporty, how did this develop into you doing stunts?
Lucy Cork: Well I came from a dance and gymnastic background and used to perform on stage in front of live audiences. I loved the buzz of performing and getting instant feedback from the crowd. Through training in gymnastics and then doing martial arts I met some people in the business and they told me I should think about training to be a stuntwoman, so I worked hard at the required disciplines and here I am!
Mss: I looked at your stunt videos on YouTube and the car stuff you do on there is very impressive! How do you »

The world of Doctor Who has changed greatly in the space of just 10 years. The cast and crew have almost completely been replaced since 2005, including a number of new actors to play the errant Time Lord and his companions.
But what has happened to the class of '05? Where are Rose and Mickey now? What is the writer of 'Dalek' up to? And where can you see more work from the director of 'Rose'?
Here it is then, your guide to the main players of Doctor Who series one.
After his three-month on-screen stint as the Doctor, Christopher Eccleston's career continued in much the same vein, taking in theatre, interesting television roles and the odd blockbuster.
Cast your minds back to 2002 - a time when Pop Idols didn't need to have The X Factor, Fifty Shades of Grey were just colours on a paint sampler chart and David Beckham was a mere international superstar rather than global megastar.
Bend It Like Beckham, with a modest estimated budget of £3.7 million, opened that same year and became a critical and commercial success - breaking box office records and scoring BAFTA and Golden Globe nominations, as well as making household names of many of its stars.

This BBC audience reaction report was one of the first nails in Doctor Who's coffin in the late eighties…
“Not for publication” is printed at the top of the 1988 audience reaction report for Doctor Who’s 24th season. It’s there for the purposes of BBC confidentiality, but could equally be a pain-saving instruction to save Sylvester McCoy fans the distress of reading the show’s three-page death sentence.
Because this report is painful stuff. Compiled in February 1988 after the broadcast of McCoy’s first four serials as the Doctor (from Time And The Rani to Dragonfire), it doesn’t mince its words in describing audience apathy and antipathy towards late-eighties Doctor Who. Looking back with the knowledge that the wilderness years were around the corner, each unimpressed audience response and scathing comment feels like another nail being hammered into classic Who’s coffin.
To begin with, the numbers weren’t good. »
The Musketeers picks up the slack and delivers a surprising, eventful and engaging episode in A Marriage Of Inconvenience...
This review contains spoilers.
2.7 A Marriage Of Inconvenience
Last week’s Through A Glass Darkly was a slight blip on what has been a strong season for The Musketeers and it is with some relief that A Marriage Of Inconvenience returns the series, if not to its peak, then at least some way to it.
Directed by Edward Bennett (Waking The Dead, Silent Witness) and written by, Steve Bailie (Casualty, Primeval), A Marriage Of Inconvenience is a surprising episode in that it had me raging for the first half hour, but then as the twist became more clear it forced me to see it in a new light. This was an episode that caught me unawares and I liked it the more for it.
So what was going on? Well, in »
When was the last time you found yourself excited by a medical drama? BBC stalwarts Casualty and Holby City limp round once a week, while Grey’s Anatomy continues to untangle its various romances. The schedules are stuffed with crime dramas – from the cosy to the darkly complex – but it seems the poor hospital drama has fallen from favour. Even medical dramas don’t want to be medical dramas: ABC’s Forever, ostensibly a medical show, is actually about an immortal examiner trying to unravel the mystery of his eternal life.
So where is the programme to give the medical drama the shot of adrenaline it so desperately needs? In the Us, they’re hoping the answer to that question is “right around the »

They’ve been crushed, blown up, drowned, plunged to the bottom of fiery warehouses, fallen from rooftops, collapsed in restaurants, fallen downstairs, and generally been the victims of an uncaring deity determined to wring every ounce of tension and drama from their demise; yes, it’s a hard, albeit short lived life being a guest star on...
