The Royal Shakespeare Company production from 2018, starring Christopher Eccleston and Niamh Cusack. It's already available on iPlayer as part of the Culture in Quarantine series, and will also be shown on BBC Four tomorrow (Sunday) night. I posted some thoughts on Letterboxd, and will expand on them further in my next 100 Films TV column.
[Watch it (again) on iPlayer.]

Collection Count

Collection Count tracks my DVD/Blu-ray collection via a number of statistics every week.

For once, this week's updates are exactly what you see -- no upgrades, partial or full; no hidden recounts -- just four new titles, with nine discs between them, containing 11 feature-length films and 15 short films.

But there's a bunch of stuff currently in the post or on order that should make next week's update both fairly big (if they all turn up) and as fiddly as normal.

Number of titles in collection: 2,382 [up 4]
Of which DVDs: 1,101 [no change]
Of which Blu-rays: 1,281 [up 4]
— of which Ultra HD Blu-rays: 62 [up 1]

Number of discs in collection: 6,163 [up 9]
Number of films: 2,674 [up 11]
Number of additional cuts: 172 [no change]
Number of TV episodes: 8,900 [no change]
Number of short films: 749 [up 15]

See you next week, faithful reader.
