What have you been watching? Including Star Trek: Discovery and The Twilight Zone

It’s “What have you been watching?”, your chance to recommend to fellow TMINE readers anything you’ve been watching this week

This week’s reviews

With everyone celebrating that Jesus dying (and coming back again) for the past few days, it’s been another quiet one for TMINE. But elsewhere, I did review ABC (US)’s Bless This Mess and Orange Wednesday took in Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse, so I’ve not been totally slacking.

The Bad Seed

What’s coming this week

A few new shows are coming up, and fingers crossed, I should finally be able to watch all of TVNZ 1’s The Bad Seed. Plus Orange Wednesday tomorrow will be taking in an Australian double-bill, Mystery Road and Goldstone, as well as a classic from the 80s, The Name of the Rose.

There’ll be other stuff, too.

The regulars

While there may not have been a huge number of new shows, I’ve not been slacking when it comes to the regulars. I’ve now caught up with episodes 2-4 of The Twilight Zone, so I’ll be looking at that, as well as all the other regulars: Au Service De La France, Doom Patrol, Game of Thrones, The Good Fight, Happy!, Il Miracolo (The Miracle), Il Nome della Rosa (The Name of the Rose), The Magicians, Marvel’s Cloak and Dagger, The Orville, Star Trek: Discovery, Warrior, What We Do In the Shadows and Whiskey Cavalier.

Brace yourselves, though, because not only are The Magicians, Il Miracolo and Star Trek: Discovery leaving that list because they’ve just had their season finales, I’m also purging no fewer than five of the others, on the general grounds they’re not much cop any more.

See you in a mo for a veritable TMINE Night of the Long Knives!

Year of the Rabbit
BAFTA events

What (yet more) TV’s on at BAFTA in April and May? Including Killing Eve and Year of the Rabbit

Every Tuesday, TMINE flags up what new TV events BAFTA is holding around the UK

April’s nearly done but BAFTA still has some tricks up its sleeve. It’s also got a big bag of shiny things lined up for May, too.

In particular, there’s an entire day dedicated to this year’s Television Craft and Television Programme Nominees, with speakers that include directors, performers, writers and editors. But frankly, I’m too lazy to copy, paste and style that lot up so it’s best if you go over to the BAFTA web site to find out all about most them.

Killing Eve

TV Preview: Inside the Operating Theatre + Q&A

Thursday, 9 May 2019 – 6:30pm
Everyman Cinema, Princes Square, Glasgow

Inside the Operating Theatre, a brand new 20×60’ series for UKTV’s premium entertainment channel W, offers viewers exclusive access to the busy day surgery unit at Queen Elizabeth Hospital in King’s Lynn, Norfolk.

With cameras rigged across four operating theatres, it provides a unique view of what it’s like for the 75 staff performing around 100 operations a week. They carry out a huge variety of life-changing procedures, from cardiology through to complex orthopaedics.

The team includes everyone from the fastidious cleaner to the most experienced of surgeons – plus a whole host of nursing and surgical staff. Despite the serious moments, there’s plenty of laughter and no one lets a patient go home before they’ve had a nice cup of tea. The series also gives an intimate insight into patients’ lives, meeting them on a day that they’ve been anticipating for months. Their surgery will often revolutionise their quality of life. We meet people hoping to have their sight saved; others desperate for a cure for their chronic pain; and even patients coming to find out if they have cancer.

Inside the Operating Theatre is produced by Brown Bob Productions and builds on UKTV’s popular ‘Inside the…’ franchise, following the successes of Inside The Ambulance and Inside The Vets. 

The first episode will be screened and will be followed by a Q&A with UKTV’s Head of Factual and Factual Entertainment Hilary Rosen, Brown Bob Productions Creative Director and Co-Founder Jacqueline Hewer, and Series Producer Audrey Neil.

Channel 4's Year of the Rabbit
Channel 4’s Year of the Rabbit

TV Preview: Year of the Rabbit

Monday, 20 May 2019 – 6:45pm
Princess Anne Theatre, 195 Piccadilly, London, W1J 9LN

A preview of the new Channel 4 comedy followed by a Q+A with Matt Berry, Freddie Fox, Susan Wokoma, Ben Taylor, Andy Riley and Kevin Cecil.

The series follows Detective Inspector Rabbit (Matt Berry), a hardened booze-hound who’s seen it all, and his new, hapless, by-the-books partner (Freddie Fox). While they’re investigating a local murder, the lewd but insightful adoptive daughter (Susan Wokoma) of the chief of police joins them, becoming the country’s first female officer. Together, the trio must fight crime while rubbing shoulders with street gangs, crooked politicians, Bulgarian princes, spiritualists, music hall stars and the Elephant Man.

Year of the Rabbit is directed by BAFTA-nominated Ben Taylor (Catastrophe) and written by Emmy-winners Andy Riley and Kevin Cecil (Veep).
