Public Service Announcement 33 of 2018: Press

Mike “Doctor Foster” Bartlett’s latest showPress is pitched as a “West Wing-style” (it should be so lucky) drama about the newspaper business, with rivalry between a left-leaning broadsheet and a splashy tabloid played out against a background of the rise of digital journalism, the prevalence of “fake news” and every other media-related issue you can think of. It all sounds very well-meaning, but whether it’s any good or not is another matter, of course. Since my previously dormant interest in British drama has recently been re-kindled by Bodyguard, Keeping Faith and The Split, though, I think I’ll try an episode or two to find out. BBC1, 9pm tonight (Thursday) or iPlayer shortly thereafter if you want to join me.
