Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
5/5 97% They Shall Not Grow Old (2018) Colourising and enhancing the footage and using lip-readers to decipher soldiers' words, which were dubbed by actors, was done to jaw-dropping effect. ‐ Times (UK)

5/5 89% A Woman Captured (2017) This was standout TV for which Tuza-Ritter will doubtless, and rightly, win awards.‐ Times (UK)

4/5 83% Inside the Manson Cult: The Lost Tapes (2018) Given that they are usually narcissists as well as psychopaths, the publicity only feeds their egos...But Manson: The Lost Tapes had the distinction, to an extent, of keeping Charles Manson...largely out of the picture.‐ Times (UK)

5/5 71% Drinkers Like Me - Adrian Chiles (2018) This was a cracking programme, mainly because Adrian Chiles, our Guinness-thirsty, temptation-weak, likable everyman, didn't duck the truth that habitual drinking creeps up and can kill, but did confront it with humour and humanity. ‐ Times (UK)

4/5 100% Mother's Day (2018) It was as compelling an opener as you could get, yet how wrong "compelling" sounds since we're talking about the murder of children.‐ Times (UK)

5/5 100% Killed By My Debt (2018) It's not often you can say that five stars aren't enough to do justice to a TV drama, but Killed By My Debt presents one of those occasions.‐ Times (UK)

No Score Yet Dunkirk: The Forgotten Heroes (2014) It will make you well up with tears and want to kick a wall in anger at the same time.‐ Times (UK)

5/5 89% King Lear (2018) Flawed parenting, ingrate children and family estrangement will never not be relevant, and the modern-day dress gave it the feel of a production at ease with itself.‐ Times (UK)

3/5 No Score Yet Dave Allen at Peace (2018) It never addressed Allen's death in 2005. [AIden] Gillen's performance, however, made it worthwhile. ‐ Times (UK)

4/5 No Score Yet The Funeral Murders (2018) It's still not known why they took that route, and if the film lacked anything it was that it didn't examine this mystery more thoroughly. But what it did, sensitively and unsensationally, is show what barbarity human beings are capable of.‐ Times (UK)

4/5 89% Being Blacker (2018) This wasn't a perfect documentary, but it managed to raise issues without lecturing. ‐ Times (UK)

4/5 No Score Yet Secret History: Churchill's Secret Affair (2018) Although it lacked a definitive smoking gun it was a juicy documentary...‐ Times (UK)

4/5 81% The Child in Time (2018) A rarity: nuanced, unmawkish, unsentimental. It steered us through this unthinkable limbo... in an intellectual, almost spiritual way, examining too the very meaning of childhood, time and sanity, yet ended with a sense of hope.‐ Times (UK)

3/5 No Score Yet Diana, 7 Days (2017) This will doubtless stand as the definitive documentary on Diana's death and aftermath. It reminded us that her greatest legacy is her sons and that their great strength is their normality.‐ Sunday Times (UK)
