Just finished watching this over a few nights and I have to say, I haven’t found a piece of television this moving in a long time. Maid tells the story of Alex and her young daughter Maddy, who escape emotional abuse and domestic violence to search for a new life. Along the way, Alex faces […]Read more "Tonight’s Viewing – Maid (2021)"
I just learned that one of my favourite books, and one of the inspirations for The Ardenna Crossing, may be being made into a Limited Series by Fox. The Sparrow, by Mary Doria Russell, was published in 1996 and won numerous awards including the Arthur C Clarke award and the British Science Fiction Association Award.

I felt like I had to mark this with a post. I haven’t written anything proper for ages and I was so impressed by the end of this series that I thought it justified one. I sat down with some trepidation to watch Amazon Prime’s The Man in the High Castle a few weeks ago. […]Read more "The Man in the High Castle – getting the villains spot on"

Area 51 What a fantastic follow up to the opening double header for Season 2. I didn’t think they’d be able to match the standard set in the Roswell episodes but they did it and then some. This episode had it all; drama, thrills, emotion and a great new character in the CIA agent, Daniel […]Read more "Project Blue Book – Season 2: Episode 3 Review"
Merry Christmas everyone, I wanted to mark the holiday by going back into the woods for one more Twin Peaks haiku. I haven’t written anything TP related since the sad passing of Peggy Lipton earlier in the year but I had an urge to go into the dark woods once more and do some backwards […]Read more "What the Haiku – Twin Peaks – New Year Special"
I was lucky enough last weekend to get the chance to see the World premiere of Thor Amli’s third foray into the origin story of one of Twin Peaks’ most tragic residents: Leland Palmer. The film will soon be available to view online but, in advance of its release, I wanted to give a brief […]Read more "The Summer House at Pearl Lakes: Part 3 Review"
So, my fifth Twin Peaks UK Festival has come to an end. I had two regrets when I left, Firstly, I regretted that it was over at all. Secondly, I regretted not taking my decent camera with me this year. I trusted my phone, thinking as it was an upgrade on my last one, the […]Read more "Twin Peaks UK Festival 2019 in pictures"
