❉ We’re asking, they’re answering. This week: Radio and TV presenter, film buff and all-round top bloke Paul Ross.
❉ A book about growing up in the dark side of the 70s with the darkest, most inappropriate pop culture ever.
❉ This is Marvel-by-numbers, a bit like watching a student attempting tai chi without really understanding the art.
❉ One of the best comics of the ’90s, James Robinson and Tony Harris’ Starman continues to stand the test of time.
❉ Our verdict on the recent Netflix series: Don’t look away, it’s a joy to watch, from start to finish.
❉ It’s fantasy casting time again, and yes, The Doctor could be a woman or a person of colour – get over it!
❉ Could the Beeb have kept BBC Three going and return it to its former glory? We offer an alternative hypothesis…
❉ We look at ‘Black Mirror’ and its antecedents in speculative fiction, from Frankenstein to Doomwatch…
❉ It’s time to get really depressed again. Thank God for Charlie Brooker.
❉ We Are Cult revives the spirit of BBC2’s fondly remembered Sunday night film series ‘Moviedrome’. This week, the “gleefully profane” ‘In Bruges’.
