The DTV Digest - Episode 045 - White Witch Of Devils End, Shin Godzilla

With a packed out weekend (we were also recording our end of year show), only two films to review this week - Rich takes a gander at the Doctor Who spin-off film, White Witch of Devil's End, which relates to characters from the Jon Pertwee era story, The Daemons.

On top of that is the Coming Soon section, a Beginners Guide to French cop thrillers and a tiny bit of washing...


Episode 081 - Wonder

With Josh still in denial that it's Wintertime, Mike and Steve are left holding the baby once more. And what a week - a real test to their integrity as film reviewers, as thanks to the schedule left by Josh they were faced with what sounded like a really mawkish, saccharine saturated feelgood/tearjerker (it could have gone either way from the promos). And yes, they did watch it, and you can hear exactly what we thought of the film on the podcast! Not only that but there is the usual News...


The DTV Digest - Episode 044 - Through The Shadows, Special Operations, Stronger Than The World

As the DTV world continues to slow for the Christmas period, Mike and Rich look to warmer climes for their picks this week, specifically Brazil. First there is the period-set supernatural film, Through the Shadow, followed by two films currently available on Netflix. There's the police procedural, Special Operations, and the sports biopic Stronger Than The World. Once again there is no chart nor even a washing up section this week but we do bring you some very nift trailers in the Coming...

Episode 079 - Justice League (Non-Spoiler + Spoiler)

After ages and ages of waiting, bringing with it a whole load of baggage in its wake, it's finally here at last. Episode 79 of The Smoking Lamb. By which I mean of course Justice League has finally reached the cinemas, dragging behind it a weight of expectations and a whole tea shop's worth of gossip and rumours.

The DTV Digest - Episode 042 - Goldstone, Bon Cop Bad Cop 2, Warrior Savitri, The Villainess

The DTV Digest - Episode 040 - The Spacewalker
