4/5 100% Mother's Day (2018) What Mother's Day does is provide a way into that story - a touching, human, desperately sad, but ultimately inspiring way in. ‐ Guardian

1/5 No Score Yet The New Wife (2018) Call me a cynic, but it is almost as if conflict is the desired outcome and that it could be less for the sake of the children, more for the sake of television entertainment.‐ Guardian

4/5 100% Killed By My Debt (2018) A meticulous factual drama, with input from Jerome's family and a beautiful, utterly believable, portrayal of Jerome by newcomer Chance Perdomo - it becomes something else: a heart-rending personal family tragedy about a young life wasted.‐ Guardian

88% The Wipers Times (2013) It's an extraordinary true story. Funny, sad, and peculiarly British. And told with an affectionate twinkle. Lovely.‐ Guardian

4/5 91% King Lear (2018) Now 80 himself, the right age, Hopkins is at home in Lear's skin. Shouty, angry, cruel one moment; vulnerable, tender, loving the next - or at the same time. A mesmerising performance.‐ Guardian

4/5 89% Being Blacker (2018) It's a big, beautiful sprawl of a film, that spans continents as well as generations.‐ Guardian

No Score Yet Can You Rebuild My Brain? (2018) Not a neuroscientist herself, then, nor a science journalist, but an expert in another way, in that Lotje Sodderland has experienced coming round in a strange world she didn't recognise.‐ Guardian

67% George Michael: Freedom (2017) So preposterous perhaps, but also honest and brilliant - the film, and the man.‐ Guardian

79% The Child in Time (2018) The TV drama is a simpler thing then, of course it is. But it's still a deeply affecting portrait of loss and what that does to love. It is painful, but not entirely without hope, given time.‐ Guardian

100% King Charles III (2017) The late, brilliant Tim Pigott-Smith is mesmerising as Charles. It's not an impression, thankfully, nor was the actor made up to look like him (that would have been tiresome), but an interpretation of character.‐ Guardian

96% An Adventure in Space and Time (2013) Mark Gatiss's drama, An Adventure in Space and Time, is a lovely way to kick off the (50th Anniversary) celebrations.‐ Guardian

56% Treasure Island (2012) They've changed it, not just unnecessarily but unquestionably for the worse, and that's a travesty. ‐ Guardian
