Series 3 of Sherlock will hit our screens on New Years Day and will answer the question left dangling at the of the last series. How does Sherlock survice the Reichenbach Fall? At 90 minutes an episode and 3 episodes per series this amounts to 9 hours of quality programming, which is almost as popular (if not more so) as Doctor Who in our house. This is the ideal time to catch up on the events of the first two series before making yourself comfortable for the new series. Highly recommended.

I don’t think this is the complete IT crowd, since the recent ‘final ever episode’ has yet to be released on DVD (although I stand to be corrected on that), however this single boxset does contain all 4 full series of the modern classic geek comedy about basement dwelling IT nerds and their implausibly laughable existence working at Reynholm industries. Penned by Graham Linehan, its not quite as funny consistently funny as Father Ted, but there are plenty of high points which makes this a set well worth the £12.50 price tag.

Panned by the critics on its release at the cinema, and roundly thrashed in its opening weekend by Despicable Me 2, Jonny Depp and Armie Hammer team up to resurrect the classic all American Hero the Lone Ranger (Hammer) ably assisted by his native American sidekick, Tonto (Depp). However despite the movie being a flop at the box office it does seem as though it has new lease of life on DVD. So far the amazon reviews are largely favourable, with a current star rating of 4 out of 5, based on 44 reviews – so its not as bad as you might think, perhaps?

It doesn’t really feel like 7 years ago when they last brought back the most iconic of all Superheroes in Superman Returns, but the luke-warm success of that comeback movie, which was more a sequel to the Christopher Reeve series, probably contributed to the need for a reboot, especially given the success of the the Dark Knight trilogy. Indeed a sequel to MOS is in the works which features a rebooted Dark Knight himself, this time portrayed by Ben Affleck instead of Christian Bale – by all accounts not a very popular choice, but then neither was Heath Ledger when news broke that he had been cast as the Joker and look what happened there. Anyway I digress. The Man of Steel is available to buy on DVD on Monday and is only £10,
