Welcome back to Broadchurch, or, to call it by its Chinese translation, Terrible Things Happen in Beautiful Rural Locations. This week, a gorgeous cornfield joined the bucolic, rolling grounds of Axehampton House as a site of human misery. Following new testimony and a fresh lead thanks to Beth’s mentor, it’s looking as though the man who attacked Trish is a serial rapist.

Episode five opened on a distressing interview with Laura Benson, the woman who came forward at the end of last week’s hour. Two years ago, she was attacked by a rapist with a strikingly similar Mo to Trish’s attacker, but chose not »

Well that just got dark. After three weeks of relatively demure scandal and intrigue, episode four of Clique has dimmed the lights, upped the stakes and made a lot of the grimy subtext of Solasta and its treatment of interns into shocking, graphic context.

The episode starts on an unusually sunny note for for our protagonist - new guy, new friends and new life. Everything’s coming up Holly, and Georgia’s absence is making it easier for her to enjoy the various advantages of being one of the elite. But, having seen James Buxton’s body dragged from the river at the end of last week’s episode, »

Take That pop person Gary Barlow says he has a cameo in this year's Star Wars: The Last Jedi...

If you've long thought the Force was strong with Take That, then here's the proof at long last: Gary Barlow reportedly has a cameo in this year's Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

The word comes from the Take That pop person himself, who dropped the news on ITV's the Lorraine show. "I'm not a Stormtrooper," Barlow said, "But I am in it."

This means that Barlow will appear somewhere among such actors as Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac and the legendary Mark Hamill - assuming that revealing his part in The Last Jedi hasn't earned the wrath of Disney-Lucasfilm, that is.

"Now I've said that, I'll probably be out, »

The repercussions of Gibbs’ loss of control during Terry O’Duncie’s arrest are the main focus of this episode; for Jane Tennison, the pressure to fit in with her new colleagues is pushing her to take action that could cast a long shadow over her career. Both Gibbs and Bradfield are telling their superiors that O’Duncie struck the first blow, but Tennison saw the whole thing and knows different. Gibbs is panicking that he’ll be suspended, while Bradfield’s main concern is that the investigation could be derailed permanently by the allegations of police brutality, which are being backed by the only witness: Sarah, known as Flowers (Jodie Tyack), the woman in »

Rain World: opening cinematic shows off its beautiful design

19 hours ago

Ryan Lambie Mar 27, 2017

Yes, it's another indie platformer. But the gorgeous-looking Rain World is well worth checking out...

We'll be the first to admit that we're a sucker for indie platform games with cute-looking graphics. And while Rain World may have distinct echoes of past genre entries like Limbo or Super Meat Boy, it still looks like a stunning, hand-crafted little game.

It's set in a strange hand-painted world that looks almost post-apocalyptic: buildings are in ruins and seemingly in the process of being swallowed up by vines and creepers, while weird, mutated creatures roam in the shadows. You play a pale little critter called a slugcat, who can jump and attack with objects but, otherwise, seems decidedly vulnerable when placed against the huge monsters lurking at every turn. Slugcat's objective is »

Marvel's Iron Fist episode 8 viewing notes: The Blessing Of Many Fractures

20 hours ago

James Hunt Mar 27, 2017

The fighting has really come on in the last few Iron Fist episodes, even if the characterisation lacks depth...

These viewing notes contain spoilers.

Iron Fist, the fourth and final member of the Defenders, has finally made his debut. As with previous Netflix series, we’ll be reviewing an episode a day highlighting the characters, reference points and easter eggs we spotted. Feel free to read along as you watch too, but please don’t spoil future episodes for anyone in the comments!

This episode is made up of two strands: Danny, Colleen, and for some reason Claire head to China to catch Madame Gao and bust up her operation. Elsewhere, Ward and Joy attempt to deal with being forced out of their company. We’re squarely into the meandering portion of the narrative, which is the part of all Netflix series where everyone cares about something »

The Walking Dead season 7 episode 15 review: Something They Need

7.15 Something They Need

Is it a step forward for The Walking Dead when the creative crew don't stretch out a cliffhanger and opt for a simple resolution? When Sasha ran firing into the Saviors compound, I had assumed that it would be a week or longer before we found out what happened to her. Fortunately, that's not the case. Last episode, Sasha ran off; this episode, Sasha wakes up in one of the Savior compound's many windowless closets. Thankfully, it's not as if Negan wastes a lot of time getting to his offer, once he disciplines one of his underlings for threatening Sasha with rape.

It's a strange thing for the show. »

In The Bounce, Girls delivers a quieter episode that's somewhat weak of plot but nevertheless still funny. Spoilers ahead...

6.7 The Bounce

This episode feels a lot smaller than the past few. Nobody’s dying or finding out they’re pregnant or making a movie. And that’s fine. A TV show season should give you a few breathers here and there. I didn’t expect that breather to come in the form of an episode almost entirely about Elijah trying out for a White Men Can’t Jump musical, but okay, sure.

The biggest problem with The Bounce is the one that Girls often has at this point in its seasons: a sudden, unnatural acceleration of plots. We know Elijah was in musical theatre in the past, »
