Last week, Netflix announced a whole roster of new shows and films to be released over the years to come, one of which is a true crime series billed as "the next Making a Murderer." .

North Lincolnshire motorcycling star Guy Martin is reported to be in line to star in a new Channel 4 TV show. According to The Sun newspaper, the show will be based on Guy's Wall of Death stunt two years ago. Television viewers saw the star, from Kirmington, claim a new world record by riding at more than 78 mph around a huge barrel in March 2016. The new show would see celebrity contestants don their leathers and attempt to repeat his feat, with Guy reported to be in charge of training the stars for the challenge.

Come Avengers: Infinity War later this year and the Marvel Cinematic Universe will have been rolling forward for exactly 10 years. As these movies have gone on, they’ve also become ever-more interlinked, featuring regular cameos, references, and Easter Eggs to other instalments. For newcomers to superhero movies — perhaps those who have become absorbed in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) following Black Panther — the amount of watching material can be overwhelming. But for those wanting to persevere, there are two watching orders. Really, you should probably watch these movies in release order, starting the journey starting with Iron Man — one of the best MCU instalments to date — moving onto The Incredible Hulk, then Iron Man 2, Thor, Captain America: The First Avenger, finishing Phase One with Avengers. This order works well with post-credit scenes all setting up the next movie and has the intended rhythm formed by producer Kevin Feige. However, … [Read more...] about Marvel Cinematic Universe timeline: How to watch every MCU film and TV show in chronological order
There has been a murder most foul and in the eyes of Agatha Christie’s devoted fans there is only one suspect. No need to gather in the library for a brilliant explanation from a Miss Marple or Hercule Poirot. The victim is Christie’s Ordeal by Innocence slashed to ribbons by TV writer Sarah Phelps. Writers will often tweak established stories but Phelps took a hatchet to the queen of crime’s 1958 work. The Sunday night three- parter was dramatic and tense but Christie fans are accusing her of supreme arrogance for tampering with the original. Perhaps we should carefully examine the evidence by comparing the two plots. In Christie, Rachel was murdered by housemaid Kirsten persuaded by Rachel’s “delinquent” son Jacko, who seduced middle-aged women and fleecing them for cash. Rachel had refused to pay his debts so Jacko convinced besotted Kirsten to steal Rachel’s money and kill her. But Jacko’s plan fell apart when Dr Calgary, his intended … [Read more...] about Seven times TV shows have made up different endings from books
