'Seeing a 50-year-old woman with slightly younger men is still quite surprising' - Susie Blake talks Mrs Brown, Miss Marple and snogging Keith Duffy
Some Agatha Christie classics need no reminder. Death on the Nile and Murder on the Orient Express are works so frequently exhumed that watching a new version is more an act of suspending memory than disbelief. Not so with The Mirror Crack'd however. The Miss Marple mystery is set in St Mary Mead of 1953, and is, as with seemingly all such stories of such vintage, a simmering brew of class war, snobbery, sexual politics, impropriety and intrigue. - Entertainment RSS Feed
A 'quiet novel' where everything is perfectly placed
Why isn't Tessa Hadley more famous? The answer, perhaps, has to do with how hard it is to describe what makes her such a good novelist without falling into the trap of calling her books "quiet". Certainly, the unapologetically domestic titles dare you to do that - The Master Bedroom, Accidents in the Home - but once you are immersed in one of her subtly realised fictional worlds, she shows you how loud that "quiet" can be. - Entertainment RSS Feed
Pick of the week: This Time with Alan Partridge
I think we all know which way Alan Partridge would have voted on Brexit: the erstwhile sports reporter, talk show host and disgraced regional radio jock is a dyed-in-the-wool Little Englander, with a deep suspicion of all things 'foreign' and a puzzling fondness for traditional British cuisine. He must be a happy man at the moment, therefore, as his country lurches towards a hard Brexit and years of international isolation, but will be even happier that, after a gap of several decades, he's finally got back on the telly. - Entertainment RSS Feed
Paul Whitington: Are the Oscars broken?
Are the Oscars broken? While the annual film industry bun fight has averaged between 45 and 50 million TV viewers in the US over the last 30 years or so, figures of late have been dipping, and last year reached an all-time low. Voting with their remotes, just 26.5 million Americans tuned in to follow the event live, with most preferring to get potted versions afterwards, or avoid the festival of backslapping altogether. - Entertainment RSS Feed

Review - Metro Exodus: 'An absorbing journey, just don't expect the crisp gunplay of a modern shooter'
"There is Metro, nothing else," the inhabitants of post-apocalyptic Moscow in this book-to-game series were told repeatedly. Much like a lot of government propaganda, it was a lie. - Entertainment RSS Feed
Kabbalah: Secrecy, Scandal and Soul - new book tries to explain Jewish mysticism that became an unlikely celebrity fad
There was a time, a decade ago, when a certain type of attention-seeking celebrity wouldn't dream of being seen in public without wearing a knotted red string on their left wrist. England footballer David Beckham sported one prominently over his tattoos at the Euros in 2004 (including when he missed a penalty). Kylie Minogue, Demi Moore and Mick Jagger, among others, brandished theirs as a hint that, when away from the cameras, they were in fact deeply spiritual people. - Entertainment RSS Feed

Soap of the week: Coronation Street
Corrie loves a good siege, or someone generally being kidnapped - be it in a basement, or a cottage, or wasteland, or an arbitrary abandoned building. Or The Bistro. They're never short of places for people to be held captive, so, for this week's hostage situation, we're being brought to the "arbitrary abandoned building" to see Clayton scare the bejaysus out of both Shona and David. But how did he get free, especially considering he was at death's door a few weeks ago? - Entertainment RSS Feed

Tough ask, right? - Entertainment RSS Feed
