Malcolm Gladwell, The New Yorker's eclectically barbered thinker-in-chief, is to turn his hand to a discipline in which he has somewhat fewer than 10,000 hours of experience: television production. The bestselling non-fiction writer (one of whose theories is that a genius requires 10,000 hours of practice to master his or her craft) has teamed up with "Marky" Mark Wahlberg to produce a drama series for HBO set during the Cold War. According to the Deadline Hollywood blog, the unnamed project will be based in Berlin, and "centers on a missionary who becomes involved in the CIA". It's not yet clear how much creative input the pair will have in the show. Wahlberg has past form at HBO, having produced the hipster "dramedies" Entourage and How To Make It In America, as well as the amply funded new Prohibition-era drama, Boardwalk Empire, with Martin Scorsese. Gladwell, on the other hand, has just one IMDb credit to his name so far, as co-writer on a TV movie unpromisingly titled Runaway Virus.

Reviews of Tom Ford's film adaptation of A Single Man suggest that the fashion designer hasn't quite captured the depth of Christopher Isherwood's slight, but angry and affecting 1964 novel.

It's traditional to adopt a knowingly superior attitude to the first English reviewers of Ibsen's Ghosts – The Daily Telegraph's apoplectic response having a place of honour when it comes to furious fulmination. The play, that paper's critic famously wrote, is "an open drain: a loathsome sore unbandaged; a dirty act done publically". He went on to condemn its "almost putrid indecorum". His colleagues weren't a lot kinder, either. "Revoltingly suggestive and blasphemous," wrote one. "As foul and filthy a concoction as has ever been allowed to disgrace the boards of an English theatre," concluded another. And, as I say, our response to these accounts of what has become a play you could safely take a maiden aunt to, is expected to be mocking or pitying. Sitting watching the latest London production at the Duchess Theatre the other night, though, I found myself envying that early audience.
