Backstage podcast: Get Duked, Strike and our Tenet review | Ents & Arts News
Teenagers doing the Duke of Edinburgh Award get a lot more than they bargained for in new Prime Video film Get Duked. While Stevie wonders if rabbit poo really has hallucinogenic properties, Claire’s been chatting to the cast about what it was like running around in the countryside together.
Strike is returning to the BBC with Strike: Lethal White. It’s the latest detective drama based on one of JK Rowling‘s books. The team wonder if the author’s recent comments will put people off watching and Katie isn’t sure lead character Cormoran Strike is a good influence on lazy boyfriends everywhere.
Everyone’s favourite watch of the week is the compelling I’ll Be Gone in the Dark, which is coming to Sky Crime and Now TV. The true crime documentary mixes the hunt for a serial killer and rapist, with the personal story of a woman who became obsessed with solving the case – writing a book that the show is based on. There’s a lot going on but it manages to avoid being confusing or hard to follow.
Katie’s been chatting to Gaz Coombes from Supergrass who are back together, though not playing the series of festival sets they expected to this summer. Find out what she asked that got us wondering how much the band actually like each other.
And after talking about it for months, Claire has finally seen Tenet. She reviews both the film and the cinema-going experience in a post-lockdown world.
