T-Meter Title | Year
3/5 50% The Kemps: All True (2020) There are some cheeky cameos, with Danny Mays and Christopher Eccleston among those pushing through the barricades of bad taste, but it's hard to escape the feeling that this is a diamond idea for a sketch stretched almost to breaking point. - Metro (UK) EDIT

4/5 98% Hamilton (2020) As a musical it's packed with energy but probably one or two show-stopping tunes short of a classic. As a production it's deftly and cleverly constructed - a history lesson that never feels like a lecture. - Metro (UK) EDIT

4/5 63% Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga (2020) Eurovision fans will have a ball spotting the galaxy of Euro-stars who pop up in a Songathon sequence - Pitch Perfect goes multi-national - with former winners Loreen, Conchita Wurst and many more in a mega-hits medley. - Metro (UK) EDIT

2/5 55% Back Roads (2018) Ultimately, though, Back Roads is unrewarding - like getting an Easter basket filled with lead eggs. - Metro (UK) EDIT

3/5 92% Togo (2019) While this true story of a husky tested to his limits in 1925 Alaska does push some of the same emotional buttons, it never quite packs the same punch. - Metro (UK) EDIT

3/5 70% Stargirl (2020) The fortune cookie philosophy - be yourself - is pure Disney. - Metro (UK) EDIT

2/5 No Score Yet Taking Control: The Dominic Cummings Story (2020) It was a missed opportunity; Taking Control told us a lot about what Dom's done to shape the state of the nation, but not why he did it. - Metro (UK) EDIT

3/5 71% The King (2019) It's Chalamet who saves the day. An odd but ultimately inspired choice to play a royal English hero, it's his understated pulling power that might just drag you through to The King's battle-weary, bloody end. - Metro (UK) EDIT

88% Frankenstein's Monster's Monster, Frankenstein (2019) It's like a particularly camp episode of Who Do You Think You Are? complete with dramatic reconstructions. - Metro (UK) EDIT

4/5 100% Care (2018) Even in hard-to-watch scenes where she struggled to speak, lashed out violently and wandered the streets as her dementia developed, we glimpsed the humanity of the woman behind the breakdown. - Metro (UK) EDIT

5/5 80% Brexit (2019) As a TV drama, it has flaws. More background on Cummings would not have gone amiss. But as a lesson in the new politics this is both chilling and compelling. - Metro (UK) EDIT

4/5 79% The Child in Time (2018) Stephen Campbell Moore brought man-boy Charles to life, maximising minimal screen time to take us back to a state of childlike innocence. - Metro (UK) EDIT

86% Endeavor (2012) Endeavour was a spot-on portrayal of a young Inspector Morse and it would be a crime if the trials of the stoic detective were not turned into a series. - Metro (UK) EDIT
