Theatre Review: Hangmen, Royal Court

By one of those quirks that you either love or deem irrelevant, I've just seen two shows in a row with a noose onstage. First there was Sam Simmons’ dark Foster’s Award-winning Soho Theatre show.

TV Preview: Inside No. 9 – The Twelve Days Of Christine, BBC2

The co-star of this week’s Inside No. 9, Tom Riley, recently tweeted that it was “maybe the greatest half hour of TV I’ve ever been lucky enough to be in”.
