News Louisa Mellor Jan 22, 2013

Spoilers ahoy as synopses and casting details are released for Black Mirror's second series...

Last night saw the BFI premiere of the first episode in Black Mirror’s second series, which means that a Channel Four broadcast date won’t be too far behind.

We’ll bring you a spoiler-free review of the series opener soon, but in the meantime, the following plot and casting details have been revealed for the three fifty-minute episodes.

(We're posting the details as sparingly as possible for those interested, and as ever, have kept the major spoilers out, but with a series as smart and surprising as Black Mirror, why not step away from the screen now and go in completely cold? Given the choice, it’s what we’d do.)

Episode one: Be Right Back

Cast: Domhnall Gleeson, Hayley Atwell and Sinead Matthews

Going Postal | Cable girl

Sky's new adaptation of Terry Pratchett's Discworld novel Going Postal is lovingly detailed and fantastically good fun – bank holiday weekend telly done to a tee

Oh, when I am President of the World this is how every Sunday and bank holiday Monday teatime will be – great slabs of fabulous telly smothered in lashings of Pratchett jam.

Going Postal (Sky1) is a two-part adaptation of Terry Pratchett's Discworld novel of the same name. Richard Coyle plays Moist von Lipwig, a con man who is reprieved at the very last moment from the gallows ("You were hung to within an inch of your life," says Charles Dance, playing city patriarch Lord Vetinari. "The last inch being the crux of the matter") and offered the chance to keep his neck intact by bringing the defunct postal system of Ankh-Morpork back to life. To do this he must bring order to chaos

1234: Film review

Likable Britpoppy tale from a debut director

There's an awful lot of likability and charm in this debut feature from British film-maker Giles Borg: a downbeat, neo-Britpoppy tale from north London about a nerdy guitarist called Stevie (Ian Bonar) yearning for a record deal, but also deeply and hopelessly in love with the bassist Emily (Lyndsey Marshal), who doesn't really want to be in the band at all. It's a bit uncertain here and there, but the scene where Stevie and Emily have a fleeting, uncomfortable kiss is heartbreakingly tremendous.   The feature, shot by Ken Eley, looks great too.

Rating: 3/5

London Film Festival Review: 1234

1234 is perhaps the nicest film I’ve seen for years, a gentle, modest, airy Brit flick centering on a budding musician. Stevie (Ian Bonar) is a bespectacled young guy who spends his days in the durge of a London call centre and his spare time dreaming of success on the indie music scene. Alongside his drummer friend Neil (Mathew Baynton), the duo recruit the more experienced, but slightly gruff guitarist Billy (Kieron Bew) and his arty bassist friend Emily (Lyndsey Marshal) to complete the line-up of their new band, 1234. As they punt out demos to record labels and work their way round the grubby gig circuit, personal and musical challenges arise, and shifts in the band dynamic threaten the whole enterprise.
