Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
91% Decline and Fall: Season 1 (TV, 2017) It is a very expensive, beautifully-directed production stuffed with some excellent performances. But I am not sure it works.‐ Radio Times

94% Vanity Fair: Miniseries (TV, 2018) Crucially, Cooke allows us to respond to her character with as much sympathy as contempt in this smart and visually delightful series.‐ Radio Times

98% Insecure: Season 2 (TV, 2017) It was one of many stirring speeches tonight (newspaper editor Maggie, below, also had one, as did David Tennant's DI Hardy) in an episode which moved us to the brink of a resolution.‐ Radio Times

100% Catastrophe: Season 3 (TV, 2017) It is a credit to the writer-performing duo of Rob Delaney and Sharon Horgan that, while the show has becomes a huge hit in the US, they make no concession to the down-at-heel language and wholly convincing rhythms.‐ Radio Times
