    Jeffery Epstein & Friends

    In the BBC interview, Emily Maitlis asks the prince about Ms Giuffre's claims that in 2001, she had dined with him, danced with him at a nightclub, and went on to have sex with him at the house of a friend of the prince in Belgravia, central London. The prince replied: "I have no recollection of ever meeting this lady, none whatsoever." Just checking - is there anyone else who would have a problem forgetting that they had slept with a 17 year old?

    Hail Satan? Great documentary about The Satanic Temple and modern satanists - no, it's not at all like Rosemary's Baby; most don't believe in Satan and spend their time challenging violations of religious freedom by campaigning for a statue of Baphomet being erected on the same site as 10 commandment monuments (which were originally promotions for the Cecil B Demille film). Parts of this are hilarious - same sex couples kissing over graves to turn the dead gay (it was a wind up). 8/10

    Ad Astra - pretentious, scientifically inaccurate tripe with a few bolted on action sequences that have little to do with the plot. I can imagine someone looking at the script, realising it was tedious, and suggesting adding random stuff like pirates, flying monkeys, sharks with lasers, etc. It did look great, and I appreciate Pitt's performance, but overall 3/10.

    Lib Dems

    Swinson made climate change a central theme to her leadership campaign yet she has accepted donations from fracking companies. Where's the integrity?

    John Wick 3 Not as good as one and two, though the first 20 mins are amazing. The fights at the end became repetitive and the desert bit was just dumb. 7/10
