Feud: Bette and Joan is an eight part drama, focusing on the lives of Hollywood stars and bitter rivals Joan Crawford and Bette Davis. When Joan Crawford realises that Hollywood doesn’t offer any good acting roles for a woman her age, she starts to push for an adaptation of the novel What Ever Happened To Baby Jane? – looking for the part that will help her hang on to her stardom. 

For the project to succeed and get financial backing, though, she needs to convince her long-term rival and star in her own right Bette Davis to join the adaptation. The series covers their collaboration and disputes, as well as the challenges of working in 1960s Hollywood.

Here’s my article on Feud: Bette and Joan, starting soon on BBC Two. In the end, I never quite got around to watching Feud, which is a shame, since it looked quite good. Fun fact, though: Alfred Molina is the cousin of one of my old economics teachers! Isn’t that a fun fact? Said economics teacher was something of an actor himself, actually. He was in Age of UltronFlorence Foster Jenkins, Rogue One, Now You See Me, and Wonder Woman. And quite a few more actually, he was pretty prolific.

It’s set to be dark, strange and very funny too. Here’s everything you need to know about the return of cult comedy hit The League of Gentlemen.

Here’s a post on The League of Gentlemen, with everything you need to know about the show’s return. I didn’t watch it, despite a fondness for Mark Gatiss, because the only thing I know about it is that it’s pretty transphobic, and I am just not about that life.
