TV Review: Netflix’s The Stranger – not a good example of a conspiracy thriller, frankly

I really thought this was gonna be a good'un. The trailers made it look great. And for the first few episodes, it was genuinely compelling, with lots of plotlines you expect to come together. Until they don't. The fact that new Netflix show The Stranger was billed as a conspiracy thriller made me assume something… Continue reading TV Review: Netflix’s The Stranger – not a good example of a conspiracy thriller, frankly

SPOILERS AHEAD FOR FEARLESS SEASON 1 Paranoid felt like it was written by a five-year-old with a big book of conspiracy clichés close at hand. Risible characters, panto performances, juvenile—sometimes nonsensical—dialogue, and a plot… Continue reading TV Review – Fearless Season 1 – everything Paranoid wasn’t

Because of its parallels with Million Eyes, my own forthcoming conspiracy thriller with historic British conspiracy theories at… Continue reading Book Review – “The King’s Deception” by Steve Berry
