Inspector Morse 30th anniversary: the top 10 episodes

Gem Wheeler Jan 10, 2017

To mark 30 years of Inspector Morse on television, here are 10 of his most complex, macabre and memorable cases...

Beer, Wagner, a red Jaguar, and Barrington Pheloung’s haunting theme. Those images conjure up one of the most memorable characters in British television. Inspector Morse’s final episode aired in the UK over fifteen years ago, yet the impression left by the hugely popular drama remains indelible. Its popular spinoff, Lewis, finished only two years ago after nine successful series, while a prequel, Endeavour, has just started to air its fourth run. The appeal of Morse and his Oxford is clearly as strong as ever.

Movie Review – Scar Tissue (2013)

Scar Tissue, 2013

Written and directed by Scott Michell

Starring Danny Horn, Charity Wakefield, Kenneth Colley, Daniel Fraser, Mark Cameron, Shaun Digwall and Imogen Bain

Synopsis:

A young man is stalked by a serial killer who supposedly died decades ago.

Imagine watching a thriller that is heavily based in reality with a gritty, grounded vibe. It’s a bit odd at times and the acting isn’t very good, but the film is playing itself very seriously. Then imagine that movie takes a right sharp turn from serious to silly in a matter of seconds as its final act twist comes to fruition. A twist that turns this once grounded movie into a bizarre Twilight Zone-esque direction that doesn’t fit with the first two thirds. Hard to imagine, but such a thing exists – and it’s called Scar Tissue.

Luke is your everyday handsome lad who has a pretty

Foyle's War

By Kieran Kinsella

Earlier this year Acorn Media bought the rights to the British detective series Foyle’s War. The cast and crew are currently working on a new series of the war time drama but in the interim Acorn Media have put together a new DVD box set of the Best of Foyle’s War.

The show centers around Detective Chief Inspector Foyle who is doing his best ignore the ravages of war and focus on solving grizzly crimes. Michael Kitchen plays the lead role and he is in the mold of classic British actors and he is well suited to playing the stiff upper lipped Dci Foyle. Kitchen apparently selected the six stories that are featured in the six disc set. The cast involvement in the DVD doesn’t end there. Kitchen’s cast mates Honeysuckle Weeks and Anthony Howell both sat down with Acorn for

Looking back at Terry Gilliam's Jabberwocky

Terry Gilliam turned his surreal talents to directing in his debut solo feature, Jabberwocky. Andrew takes a look back at a flawed yet entertaining black comedy…

Firstly, before you read further, I just want to mention this: if you have any plans of seeing Jabberwocky but have not seen it before, then stop reading this immediately. I know it goes without saying that these articles contain spoilers, but this film is one where there's a significant chance of you not having seen it before. It's not Spider-Man 3, which a great many people have seen it (whether they like it or not).

Jabberwocky is a film which is all the more impressive if you go into it without being spoilered, and it may lose its inability to surprise if you read the rest of this article. However, if you want a cross between Monty Python And The Holy Grail and Brazil,

Quick Shooter: A Clint Eastwood Profile (Part 3)

Trevor Hogg profiles the career of Hollywood icon Clint Eastwood in the third of a five-part feature (read parts one and two)...

“You’ve got to keep stretching out and trying other stuff,” observed actor and director Clint Eastwood. “I could have chosen a lot of scripts that were different than Bronco Billy [1980], that were less of a challenge but it was worth trying.” The native of San Francisco, California explains, “It’s about the American Dream, and Billy’s dream that he fought so hard for. It’s all the context of this outdated Wild West show that has absolutely no chance of being a hit. But it’s sweet. It’s pure.” The subject matter resembles the work of two legendary Hollywood filmmakers. “My first thought was that Frank Capra [It’s a Wonderful Life] or Preston Sturges [Sullivan’s Travels] might have done it in their heyday. It has some values that were interesting to

The 10 best screen faces of Jesus

Mark Kermode chooses the most believable sons of God...

Lothaire Bluteau in Jesus of Montreal (1989)

It's perhaps ironic that the best telling of the Easter story is a solidly secular work, but Denys Arcand's modern parable about a troupe of actors attempting to breathe new life into the Gospels (and annoying the church in the process) is a genuine masterpiece. Bluteau is mesmerising as the performer who starts to take Christ's teachings to heart, thereby radicalising those around him and threatening the authorities. Arcand's intelligent script even contrives a real-life resurrection which offers eyesight to the blind and health to the sick. A real cinematic miracle.

Ted Neeley in Jesus Christ Superstar (1973)

Hey kids! Jesus Rocks! Nowadays, this film of Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber's musical would doubtless be cast via a trashyTV show entitled How Do You Solve a Problem Like the Messiah? Back in 1973, however,

Mel Gibson: Cinema Savior

  • WENN
Mel Gibson: Cinema Savior
Devout Catholic Mel Gibson is desperate to make a movie about the life of Jesus Christ - but only if The Vatican approves. The father of seven is developing a new movie entitled Passion. Last month, Gibson was scouting rocky hillscapes in southern Italy that resemble first-century Palestine. According to the Italian Catholic newspaper Avvenire, he has also consulted with theologians and church officials "at the highest level" to gain an understanding of Christ's final suffering. His interest has led to speculation that the star of Mad Max and Lethal Weapon is ready to take on the role of Jesus, following in the footsteps of such luminaries as Jeffrey Hunter in King Of Kings, Max Von Sydow in The Greatest Story Ever Told, Willem Dafoe in The Last Temptation Of Christ and Kenneth Colley in Monty Python's Life Of Brian. But his spokesman Alan Nierob discourages talk that Mel will join the ranks of Jesus-portrayers, saying only, "I seriously doubt Mel is playing Christ."
