to Doctor Watson, Steven Moffat brings us yet another Sherlock Holmes adaptation, but is it any good?
Robert Weedon | Tuesday 29th June 2010
Tom Hollander's new ecclesiastical sitcom

Review: Number 10 Immortality at Last
Simon Pitt | Friday 11th December 2009
The fifth in a series of reviews of radio plays considering the current state of the Afternoon Play. Like this review, today's play was the last of a five part series. But with no series stacking and no way of hearing the first four parts now that they're gone, how will this episode fair?
Review: Getting to Four Degrees
Simon Pitt | Thursday 10th December 2009

Review: One in a Million
Simon Pitt | Wednesday 9th December 2009
The third in a series of reviews of radio plays considering the current state of the Afternoon Play. One part maths whodunnit, one part tale of brotherly sacrifice and one part blatant documentary. Simon examines a rather mixed bag of a play.
Review: Winter Storm
Simon Pitt | Tuesday 8th December 2009
The second in a series of reviews of radio plays considering the current state of the Afternoon Play. After a dissapointing start yesterday, Simon's faith in the Afternoon Play is restored by this bleak but haunting tale or words and snow.
Review: Zero Degrees of Separation
Simon Pitt | Monday 7th December 2009
The first in a series of reviews of radio plays considering the current state of the Afternoon Play. Simon is unimpressed by the first Afternoon Play of the week; a mismash of three short plays by 'community writing groups' (putting the 'ew!' into 'New Writing').
Robert Weedon | Saturday 14th November 2009
Robert reviews ITV1's latest drama series, and surprisingly, he likes it.
