Netflix’s glossy dramas get all the attention, but there’s much to be said for low-budget TV and film

One small consolation of lockdown is an abundance of glossy, expansively produced TV dramas to stream as and when you want them. I know, I know, that’s a bit like me saying one small consolation of my getting run over by a truck is qualifying for a blue badge that sometimes makes parking my adapted car a bit easier, but in pandemic-land you have to find your crumbs of comfort where you can. Netflix made a huge splash with The Queen’s Gambit,...

Russell T Davies, unafraid to cast his show based on actors’ sexuality

The last time Russell T Davies released a television series, I was enthralled by every episode and at the same time deeply relieved when it was over and I no longer had to think about any of it again.
