Reviewed and Rated

The Hobbit comes up slightly short on the big screen, while Looper , Holy Motors , Dredd and V/H/S impress on DVD. In books there’s Hugh Howey’s debut Wool , the recent 2000 AD Trifecta gets the thumbs up in comics, and we declare the final episode of The Walking Dead game one of the finest of the year.


In Red Alert we get the first word on Marchlands follow-up Lightfields ; chat to Jonathan "brother of Christopher" Nolan about Person Of Interest s recent sci-fi turn; there’s five things you need to know about Syfy’s huge new TV show/videogame event Defiance ; we talk Primeval: New World with star Miranda Frigon; ponder the end of time with the heir to The Wheel Of Time Brandon Sanderson; and hang out with Blake’s 7 as the cast are reunited for an audio drama. And don't get us started on all your usual columnists, letters, View Screen features and more…
