Spitfire review: Doctor Who – Flux

Spitfire review: Doctor Who – Flux

I didn’t plan on reviewing Doctor Who: Flux. I hadn’t lost complete faith in the show but my enthusiasm had waned under Chibnall’s writing. I no longer consumed every behind the scenes segment and cast interview. I didn’t watch the trailer for Flux until it appeared on my phone on auto play and when Flux …

Spitfire Review: Moments by Courtney Visser

Hello everyone. This Spitfire Review will be breaking from the norm. This is the first time I have interviewed a musician on my website. I am a fan of the buskers on the Southbank of the Thames and through them I attend several music gigs in and around London. I first encountered Courtney busking in …

Spitfire Review: Shakespeare’s Globe

Spitfire Review: Shakespeare’s Globe

I am relentlessly curious about theatres in particular backstage. What is is like back there? Is it as glamorous as the rest of the theatre (that depends on the theatre in question) or it is basic? My only experience of working in the theatre was in my first year of university during my Writing for …

Spitfire Review: Troy: Myth and Reality

Spitfire Review: Troy: Myth and Reality

Despite it’s controversies (click here to hear more about them) I find the British Museum a wonderful and fascinating ¬†building and could wander around its many halls and galleries for days. In particular I love their Ancient Greece exhibition. I find the ancient Greek culture fascinating, their pantheon beautifully flawed and their stories and legends …

Spitfire review: SAS Who Dares Wins

Spitfire review: SAS Who Dares Wins

This Spitfire review is a little different to the others. Instead of reviewing one book I’ll be reviewing five, all of which are military themed. So this is a Spitfire Squadron review…. Despite the fact that my father used in the British Military and I loved playing games such as Call of Duty and Battlefield …

Camden Fringe review 2019

Camden Fringe review 2019

I love the Camden Fringe Festival. It’s cheaper than the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, it’s local (for me) and I always see high calibre shows. This year was no exception. Although I booked myself into nine shows, due to work commitments, I was only able to attend four. So to the five shows I booked but …

Hello everyone. As I’m sure many of you have noticed, Disney are re-releasing many of their old classics as live action films. In this year alone they have released Dumbo, Aladdin and The Lion King with Maleficent 2 coming out later this year. The most recent of these films, and I think the film everyone …

Spitfire review: Robert Falcon Scott’s Terra Nova Expedition

Spitfire review: Robert Falcon Scott’s Terra Nova Expedition

Hello all, I’ve recently returned from my holiday in Gran Canaria in the Canary Islands. While I was topping up my tan between taking swims in the hotel’s pool, I discovered a book that I’d downloaded on my kindle and forgotten about. The journals of Robert Falcon Scott’s Terra Nova Expedition. Scott was a British …
