Criminal podcast, review: These skilfully shaded crime cases are such a guilty pleasure

Not long ago a friend told me she'd found the answer to the Serial-shaped hole in her life. It had arrived in the form of Criminal, a monthly US podcast that actually existed before Serial, and which now appears to fulfil the same requirement with its nuanced depictions of real-life crime.

A Place Called Winter by Patrick Gale, book review: A powerful tale of intolerance

Patrick Gale's eagerly awaited new novel is a departure in many senses. His first for Tinder Press, his first truly historical novel, it begins in Edwardian England before setting sail for the western prairies of Canada. The opening scene is striking in its brutality. A man called Harry is escorted from his room by two sinister male attendants and forcibly plunged into a bath full of water. A quotation from 1896 informs us that Turkish baths were used in the treatment of mental disorders.

Gracepoint, TV review: With a coat of American gloss, the authenticity of Broadchurch is lost

After 41 minutes of Gracepoint, all spent with an uneasy sense of whatever the more extreme version of déjà vu is called, I watched as a whale's tail disappeared into dark sea water and the credits rolled. A whale! In Dorset! Except that it wasn't Dorset, it was Northern California – filmed in British Columbia – and it was a reminder that despite this first episode being almost a shot-by-shot US remake of ITV's slow-burning, enthralling whodunit, Gracepoint is no Broadchurch. Exciting sealife aside, it's a watered-down imitation that should have been left alone.

Ryan Reynolds interview: The actor is branching out with Nazi art-theft drama Woman in Gold

Watching an actor evolve can make for fascinating viewing – sometimes proving more entertaining than their output. Take Ryan Reynolds. As he puts it, candidly, "I'd worked both successfully and very unsuccessfully in the movie-star business for a while." The highs include The Proposal, the 2009 romantic comedy co-starring Sandra Bullock that took $317m worldwide. And the lows? Green Lantern, one of the lamest superhero movies of the modern era, springs to mind.

Peter Ackroyd on Alfred Hitchcock: How London shaped the director's art and obsessions

Peter Ackroyd is London's most devoted acolyte – the cartographer of her unseen tracks, the auditor of her secret harmonies, the cardiologist of what Wordsworth called her mighty heart. He has devoted his prodigious writing career to celebrating the city in fiction, writing its "biography" as if it were a person, and inspecting the lives of its most vividly imaginative citizens. "London," he told Kirsty Young on Desert Island Discs in 2012, "has been the landscape of whatever imagination I have, all my life."

April Fools' Day 2015: From chocolate Benedict Cumberbatch to Downton Abbey's 70s spinoff - the best true stories that could have been jokes

Every year, April Fools' Day makes gullible goons of us all and today has been no different. But within the flood of fake news stories (Jeremy Clarkson becoming a 'special adviser on transport' and the public loving Katie Hopkins being two of ours), we were surprised to discover that not all the 'that has got to be a joke' articles were frauds.

Chic's Nile Rodgers took doctor's call diagnosing 'aggressive' prostate cancer then 'walked out the door to do a show'

Nile Rodgers, the legendary co-founder of Chic and who has worked with everyone from Daft Punk to David Bowie, has spoken of the moment he discovered he was suffering from “aggressive” prostate cancer, and how he dealt with it.

Norwich controlled airspace downsized after CAA review

Following a recent review of Norwich International Airport's (NIA) controlled airspace (CAS), the UK Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) has announced a reduction in the size of the Class D airspace. Although acknowledging that the Control Zone (CTR) and Control Area (CTA) around Norwich were working well following their implementation in 2012, the CAA has reduced the upper level of both from FL50 (approx 5,000ft) to 4,000ft. As a result, the transition altitude above the CTR and CTA will therefore b

Periodic weight checks for microlights to be scrapped

The requirement for microlights to be re-weighed every five years is to be removed, the UK Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) has confirmed. The decision forms part of the CAA's GA Change Programme and follows a joint proposal from the British Microlight Aircraft Association (BMAA) and the Light Aircraft Association (LAA). The periodic re-weighing of microlights was introduced in the mid 1990s following mutual agreement with the then Popular Flying Association and the BMAA. The CAA has recently s

CAA outlines future plans for its Medical Dept

Following a public consultation , the UK Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) has confirmed it is committed to exploring options for the way it currently provides medical services to the aviation industry. One of the options could see the outsourcing of its AeroMedical Centre to a suitable private sector provider. No timetable has yet been set for any changes, however. In the consultation the CAA h
