Downton Abbey : A New Era (2022)

For fans of the show, this film will feel more like home than the first movie. The first one was fanfare, a way to pull the audiences into the cinemas. This one is unapologetically like the show, moving with a balance of its grace, urgency, mystery and flurry.

To say that it is entertaining won’t do justice to it. It is engaging, beautifully written and does justice all characters and their arcs.

To watch them on screen feels like we are privy to a family home video, such is the connection with the Crawley family.

Watch it to mark the end of the old era and welcome the new one!

5/5

Liar (2017)

A British series with Joanne Froggatt and Ioan Gruffudd, it focuses on the subject of rape which cannot be proven.

The tension doesn’t stop there, with a variety of relationships which support the plot, that all have secrets of their own which propel the drama forward.

It is a disturbing and frustrating watch, with some loop holes which don’t tie in with the current awareness and technology.

Good performances and locations.
