Sherlock Holmes would have unravelled the case in a heartbeat. Yet so far there is no explanation as to why the estate of the fictional detective’s creator Sir Arthur Conan Doyle has failed to fight a lawsuit in the US that could leave it out of pocket.

What a woman. You have to hand it to Madonna – she's as fabulously fashionable at 50 as she ever was. In fact, this particular look – she's wearing a sleeveless green organza feather top, leather obi belt and black feather skirt, all from next season's Louis Vuitton collection – establishes her back at the top of the international best dressed list. And then some.

Early in RocknRolla, the latest film from Guy Ritchie, we're informed that London is fast becoming "the financial and cultural capital of the world". Over the last 10 years, Ritchie, with Lock, Stock & Two Smoking Barrels and Snatch, has already constructed his vision of London as a virtually womanless landscape littered with violent and witty gangsters, strangely lacking in any effective law enforcement. In his newest crime-soaked, London-set film, Ritchie may have added a leading lady and borrowed a few of his characters from the headlines, but the result adds little to commend and plenty to lament. Less a cultural capital than a playground for armed sociopaths, Ritchie's London, while admittedly fresh and exciting in his earlier efforts, has regrettably gone stale.

Critics who have called the sport blood thirsty would have been pleased when the first fight was ended far too quickly. Fabricio Werdum took the Californian Brandon Vera to the floor and threw a slurry of punches, few of which hit.

The home I grew up in... was a bog-standard, turn-of-the-century terraced council house, converted into flats. My mother, brother and I lived upstairs, an Irish man lived downstairs, with a Jamaican family to our left and a Greek family to our right.
