Love In The Vine­yard Three, 1pm Not reviewed.

Fan­tas­tic Beasts And Where To Find Them Sky Pre­miere, 8.30pm Star­ring Ed­die Red­mayne, Colin Far­rell. If you thought a re­turn to the world of Harry Pot­ter sounded like a won­der­ful idea, you’d be right. Di­rec­tor David Yates weaves his magic in this tale of the wiz­ard­ing world of 1926 New York. Fun, charm­ing but still ut­terly silly, it breathes new life into the Pot­ter fran­chise, thanks to a star turn from Ed­die Red­mayne as au­thor Newt Sca­man­der, who be­comes caught up in the wand wars when some of the beasts in his care are ac­ci­den­tally re­leased. A vis­ual treat, it could have been a cyn­i­cal cash grab, cap­i­tal­is­ing on the Pot­ter fame, but thank­fully it is so much more. ★★★
