    Saltburn is a shitton of fun, and no amount of hemming and hawing will ever take away how much fun this film is. The lighting is cool, the characters are silly, and there’s some marvellous unusual beats. It’s hard film to rate because it’s so dang fun.

    That foreign movie your uncle saw once, a decided he didn’t like foreign movies? Yeah, this is it. Well, one of them, anyway. Not bad, mind – there’s are smatterings of brilliance here: the Mongolian countryside is photographed beautifully, and the two central performances, particularly the child lead, are exceptional – but the film is deathly dull on almost every other front.

Discontent has swirled around each successive era of the show since the Tenth Doctor blubbered his way into oblivion – “Too bubbly!” "Too grumpy!” “Too woke!” “Bring back RTD and Tennant!”  ‘Russell, better than he even understands Who, understands television’ my thinking went. ‘He’s too intelligent, too savvy,’ to kowtow to the…
