TV festival of the week: Totally Serialized, Institut Francais, London SW7
Saturday 12 January 2013
Viewers who prefer their HBO box-sets and iPLayer to the cinema might be tempted off the couch for Totally Serialized, which showcases the best in Euro-telly on the big screen.
Five days of previews include the undead drama Rebound; detective drama Jo, with Jean Reno; and murder mystery Flight of the Storks. Nathalie Baye plays power games in Spin, while grieving fans of the late Merlin will welcome Katie McGrath's return in Labyrinth.
Guests include Hugh Bonneville and Being Human boss Toby Whithouse, who will host a trio of cracking episodes from a show that thinks outside the box, Doctor Who.
You can also re-visit the Doctor at the NFT, where the show's 50th birthday celebrations include a screening of the Time Lord's first story, with a Tardis-load of guests that includes veteran co-travellers Carole Ann Ford (Susan) and William Russell (Ian).
