Scarlett Moffatt’s The British Tribe Next Door: what were the TV execs thinking? 19 Oct 6:00am Scarlett Moffatt’s The British Tribe Next Door: what were the TV execs thinking?
The reality star has had an erratic career. A problematic show in which her family shadow the lives of a Namibian tribe should put an end to it Where on the Scarlett-Moffatt-Is-England’s-Rose-O-Meter™ are we at the moment? I always forget. There was that ascent to fame when she sat horizontal on a sofa and said arch things on Gogglebox: we quite liked her then. After that there was the predictable

Bored of true crime and George Ezra? Why fiction is saving podcasts 19 Oct 5:00am Bored of true crime and George Ezra? Why fiction is saving podcasts
Bored of shows about brutal true crime and celebrities schmoozing?

Streaming: Meryl Streep kicks off a season of starry Netflix offerings 19 Oct 3:00am Streaming: Meryl Streep kicks off a season of starry Netflix offerings
Get comfy on the couch with a new Soderbergh and a bravura turn from Eddie Murphy, the first of the streaming giant’s big autumn films Autumn is upon us, and with it the long, often tedious publicity trail to the Oscars. The late-summer film festivals, from Venice through to London, have had their say, while nomination lists for some of the season’s earliest precursor prizes are being compiled. For Netflix, this now means the rollout of their shiniest awards hopefuls on a near-weekly basis: Martin Scorsese’s mob epic
