Lost Girl Season 3 DVD boxset (DVD review).

The first season was mediocre, the second was good and the third season which we review here is really good! That said, ‘Lost Girl’, the Canadian supernatural drama, just seems to get better and better. For those of you who do not know what ‘Lost Girl’ is all about, it’s centred around a succubus by […]

Doctor Who: The Trial Of A Time Lord (DVD boxset review).

‘The Trial Of A Time Lord’ is very difficult to assess in anything than a boxset and I doubt if anyone would really want to make the mistake of buying each of the 4 DVDs separately. regular guest stars: Michael Jayston and Lynda Bellingham The Mysterious Planet by John Holmes cast: Colin Baker, Nicola Bryant, […]

Serenity: Leaves On The Wind  book # 1 by Zach Whedon and Georges Jeanty (comic-book review).

  ‘Serenity: Leaves On The Wind’ is the latest in the on-going series of comics devoted to the story of Malcolm Reynolds and the crew of the Serenity. For those unfamiliar with the world of Firefly (gasp!), these comics are all that remain of a beloved TV show ‘Firefly’ that died too quick a death […]

Ultraviolet: The Complete Series: Collector’s Edition (DVD review).

I reviewed the Channel 4 1998 TV series ‘Ultraviolet’ DVD volume several years back and bemoaned that I wish there were more extras. This edition has them! I’ll only briefly recap the story this time. Code V or 5 is the name for vampires or leeches in modern day. It’s a shame that this edition […]

Spyder’s Web: The Complete Series (DVD review).

Back in 1972, I came across this rather quaint espionage series called ‘Spyder’s Web’ on television. As this was a while before we have a colour television set, seeing this series again in black and white, mostly because all but two of the colour versions are lost didn’t really bother me. Back then, I didn’t […]

The Tomorrow People 2013 Pilot: an assessment by: GF Willmetts  (TV review).

Watching this second remake of ‘The Tomorrow People’, the last being in 1992, this version owes more to the films ‘Jumper’ (2008), ‘Scanners’ (1981), ‘Push’ (2009) and ‘X-Men’ than its source material which really only gets lip service. If anything, I thought the original 1970s series was better and when you consider how kitchen sink […]

What Is Canon? an article of what is and isn’t by: GF Willmetts (article).

What is canon? I’m not referring to a religious rank, a piece of artillery or even a rotund 70s TV detective. It is the difference between the source material and franchise material or spin-offs. What we regard as being officially recognised part of the continuity or more commonly called canon. Rarely do the twain mix, […]
