  • "These BBC Efforts Never Disappoint!"

    Overall

    Look for this title to pop up on sale and grab it at discount! The cast does credit to small-town British evils, with even pacing and careful plot development. A murder occurs in wintry conditions, and possible culprits abound!

    A blizzard has hit England. In the tiny village of Sittaford, on the fringes of Dartmoor, a party of six is gathered in Sittaford House, home of Captain Trevelyan. He has rented the house out for the winter and is staying in a nearby village. As evening draws in, a seance is proposed. But it reveals more than they had anticipated - TREVELYAN DEAD, spells out the board. Slowly the table begins to rock again, spelling out the word M-U-R-D-E-R. Is it true? And who would kill a man who doesn’t have an enemy in the world?

    Overall

    These low-key BBC productions are always high value, as Father Baldi, soul-searching philosopher, takes us through slices of contemporary society, solving not only crimes but his own frailties. Very reminiscent of Chesterton's Father Brown.

  • "Poirot 'Deals' With A Host's Murder"

    Overall

    This BBC production is well worth its price, especially when on sale! A detective-host invites detectives and killers to dinner and and an evening of bridge, and meets with death at someone's hand. Poirot outs not only the detective's killer, but the crimes of other invitees. The story features friends of Hercule who have aided him in the past.

Erin's greatest hits:
  • Doctor Who: The Feast Of The Drowned

    "Not a bad story."

    Overall

    I've heard that the Doctor Who books can be cheesy, but this wasn't so bad. David Tennant does an excellent job with voicing the characters, but I felt his narration was a bit over-excited at times. I still liked it a lot, though! Lots of fun :)

  • "Funny and warm--a period gem!"

    2 of 2 helpful votes

    A lovely small play by Priestley, who is well known for his plays puncturing the pretensions of the British upper classes and those aspiring to such status, such as The Inspector Calls. This is a comedy with the same general theme, but it has affection rather than hatred for its subjects. A tale of upper middle class couples from the North of England who suddenly find out they were never married as they thought, 25 years earlier. The play is gentle but funny, and gives a stellar cast of actors a chance to show off the beauty of ensemble acting. The standout is Alan Bennett as "erbert," but Belinda Blethyn and Nicola Paget are also notable. Enjoy!

    Samson Agonistes, the 'dramatic poem' by John Milton, was published in 1671, three years before the poet's death. Written in the form of a Greek tragedy, with the Chorus commenting on the action, it follows the biblical story of the blind Samson as he wreaks his revenge on the Philistines who have imprisoned him. A powerful subject, with a personal resonance for the blind Milton, it is a perfect work for the medium of audiobook where poetry and drama can be balanced equally.

But with the arrival of the internet, have the critics finally fallen under the axe? With movie posters now just as likely to be adorned by Twitter quotes as fusty reviewer recommendations, has the rise of enthusiastic amateurism sounded the death knell of a profession?
