TV tonight: a disturbing drama about the rise of rape culture in schools

10pm, Channel 4

Emma Dennis-Edwards has written a queasy drama about sexual abuse and harassment in schools that gets under the skin and is excruciating from beginning to end. Set in a private school, it follows scholarship student Natalie, who doesn’t remember having sex with classroom crush Archie.

Brian and Charles (Jim Archer, 2022), Prime Video
Nominated for an outstanding British film Bafta, Brian and Charles is a gorgeous, joyful gutpunch. David Earl (also co-writer) plays a scientist who, wounded by a long period of isolation, builds a robot companion out of bits of washing machine and a mannequin head. If that sounds like the saddest film of all time, you’re right. But if it also sounds like a high-concept, laugh-out-loud comedy, the sort of ridiculous handmade hodgepodge that looks as if it was flung together in an attempt to be the most stupid thing ever conceived, you’re also right. That Brian and Charles can marry both tones at all is a miracle, but it manages to do so seamlessly. Just a perfect film. Stuart Heritage
