Just to prove that I’m capable of saying nice things too

Television

Because it feels like I’ve been on a Holby-bashing binge lately, saying only negative things about the three programmes in the franchise, I only thought it fair to take the time to say some nice things about the most recent episode of Holby City, Eighteen and a Half. Not only did it feature some very impressive photography, proof that the programme’s production values have improved by leaps and bounds in the last eighteen months, it also provided Adrian Edmondson, an actor generally known for his comedy roles (The Young Ones and Bottom probably being the shows for which he is best known), with an opportunity to excel at some serious dramatic acting in the climax of a long-running storyline that has seen his character’s mental health disintegrate entirely as a result of events he witnessed in the Congo. Credit, therefore, to the director, Daikin Marsh, for putting together a visually striking episode with a strong central performance.

Impressive. You got the name of the cinematographer?

Quick gander at closing credits… the cinematographer is Toby Moore. He was the second unit director of photography on V for Vendetta.
