What TV’s on at the RTS in October? Including Russell T Davies in conversation and Zomboat!

Every month, TMINE lets you know what TV the RTS will be presenting around the country

Oddly, there doesn’t appear to be much on at the RTS in September, but October is giving us a couple of interesting events. Tickets for the Russell T Davies event are going fast, but a new batch have just been released, so get them while you can.

Plus if you can work out when the Zomboat! screening is actually going to take place, let me know.


Zomboat! premiere screening and Q&A

Date: Thursday 3 October
Timings: Not listed
Venue: IET, Cambridge Street, Birmingham

The premiere of new ITV2 comedy series, Zomboat!, is being held at the IET Birmingham on Thursday 3 October with its four stars in attendance.

The Royal Television Society (Midlands) event at the canalside IET building is set to welcome stars Leah Brotherhead, Hamza Jeetooa, Ryan McKen and Cara Theobold; and they will be joined on the night by Executive Producers Camilla Campbell and Robert Wulff-Cochrane from Noho Films and Writer Adam Miller, for a Q&A straight after the screening.

When the zombie apocalypse is unleashed in Birmingham, sisters Kat and Jo, together with unlikely travel companions Sunny and Amar, must flee for their lives… by canal boat. Jo has just returned from a season as a club rep and has decided to move back in with younger sister Kat, a computer game addict who buys into every conspiracy theory around. Jo struggles to take her sister seriously when Kat claims the zombie apocalypse is real and happening, right now…in Birmingham. Alongside gym bunny Amar, the upbeat and ready to face things head on character and his oldest friend Sunny, a wannabe misanthrope who’d rather sit out the apocalypse from the comfort of his sofa, Kat, Jo, Sunny and Amar find themselves trapped together on board Dorothy, a narrow boat on the Grand Union canal. As they journey along the canal in their tightly packed living quarters, friendships develop, alliances form, arguments occur and romance blossoms. Along the way, they realise there is no escaping the problems of everyday life, even in a zombie apocalypse.

In Conversation With Russell T Davies

This year, his latest drama, Years And Years, received outstanding critical acclaim.

BAFTA events

What TV’s on at BAFTA in September? Including Pili Pala, Motherland, Un Bore Mercher (Keeping Faith) and Rhys Ifans

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

August has been pretty quiet for BAFTA events – although it’s not like I’ve been paying close attention over the holidays – but September is shaping up pretty nicely, particularly for Welsh TV. Here’s what we’ve got so far, as usually we can expect more events as we head into September itself:

  • A preview of S4C’s Pili Pala
  • A preview of series 2 of BBC One’s Motherland
  • A celebration of Un Bore Mercher (Keeping Faith)
  • An audience with Rhys Ifans

False Flag - season 2

TMINE’s August schedule

Hello, gentle reader! TMINE is back from its August break and raring for action. The Daily News has already made its presence felt, like John the Baptist to the rest of TMINE’s Christ-like output, and will be returning to the usual weekday schedule forthwith (except next Monday, cos it’s a bank holiday).

But we’re not quite back to normal, because I’m still playing catch-up with my TV viewing. Plus I seem to have a stupid amount of work to deal with all of a sudden, so I’ve got to find the time to write everything!

So here’s a glimpse of the either action-packed or slightly reduced TMINE schedule for the rest of the month – delete as appropriate according to how much time I find I have.

Hobbs and Shaw
Hobbs and Shaw

This week

This week, though, you can expect the usual Tuesday BAFTA events write-up. WHYBW will be here on Wednesday, but it’ll be primarily for you to talk about what you’ve been watching (hence the title), since I’ve not seen any of the regulars in the viewing queue. However, I have tried the first episodes of a few new shows, including The Boys, Another Life and Crashing, so might pass comment on them. And I hope that next week’s WHYBW will feature all the episodes of the regulars that have aired: Perpetual Grace LTD, Swamp Thing, Legion and Departure, as well as the second season of False Flag.

Orange Thursday should be on this week, since I’m off to see Hobbs and Shaw tonight, but as of yet, I’ve not got a second movie planned. However, next week’s Orange Thursday will cover two Netflix movies: Point Blank and The Red Sea Diving Resort.

And Friday will see the return of What time, TMINE?, to regale you with the latest premiere dates and acquisition news.

I might also crowbar in a BFI write-up for September’s schedule.



Before my holidays, I did promise I’d try to get through a big chunk of boxsets, and surprisingly I have. I didn’t get through any of 4 Blocks or Strange Report, unfortunately, but I managed to watch seasons three and four of Le Bureau Des Légendes.

On top of that, I also watched all of Netflix’s Wu Assassins and am halfway through season two of Mindhunter. I also have every intention of watching season 3 of GLOW at some point.

Exactly when I’ll be reviewing them, though, I haven’t quite worked out. Let’s just roll with it for now.

Righteous Gemstones
The Righteous Gemstones

New shows

There’s been a decent release of new shows over the past month, from Australia’s Les Norton through to the US’s The Righteous Gemstones, with more to come. For the most part, the usual TMINE “If it starts in August, I won’t be reviewing it” rule will apply.

However, I’m going to try to preview Showtime (US)’s On Becoming A God In Central Florida, and since Epix (US)’s Pennyworth came out the day before I went on holiday, I’m going to try to catch up with it at some point.

Amazon’s Carnival Row starts on Friday, but is apparently pretty dull, so I might steer clear of it. Or I might do the first episode in next week WHYBW. Again, let’s see what I can get through – and how much time I have over the bank holiday weekend.

That’s the plan – let’s so how well it stands up to its encounter with the enemy: time itself!
