WATCH IT

There’s good news for Trekkies as the sec­ond se­ries of Star Trek:

Dis­cov­ery beams down from 18 Jan­uary. Avail­able on Net­flix, all the cast of the Dis­cov­ery are set to re­turn, with In­hu­mans star An­son Mount ap­pear­ing as Pike, cap­tain of the USS En­ter­prise. Re­becca Romijn plays his side­kick, Num­ber One. It’s sure to be clas­sic view­ing so get ready to boldly go and watch it!

WHY WE LOVED… BE­WITCHED

Be­witched ran from 1964 to 1972 – but it’s been re­peated so many times since then that it feels like there were a lot more than eight se­ries! It starred El­iz­a­beth Mont­gomery as Saman­tha, a witch who’s mar­ried to a mor­tal man and do­ing her best to be an or­di­nary house­wife. The only trou­ble is, her fam­ily love caus­ing mis­chief and may­hem – and she has to use magic to cover it up. Fa­mously, Saman­tha twitches her nose ev­ery time she casts a spell! Decades on, it’s still the per­fect show to watch on a du­vet day.

READ IT! Circe by Made­line Miller

One of the best new book re­leases in 2018, this book follows the witch Circe, fa­mous in Greek leg­end for be­witch­ing the hero Odysseus and forc­ing him to re­main on her de­serted is­land as her hus­band un­til his even­tual es­cape a year later. This book retells her story, cast­ing her in a much more sym­pa­thetic light as a woman at the mercy of cruel gods. A must-read for any­one who loves witch­craft.

JAN­UARY MOVIE GLASS

If you en­joyed the M. Night Shya­malan film Un­break­able back in, ooh, 2000, then you’ll be thrilled to hear that, a mere 18 years later, he’s fi­nally fi­nally got round to writ­ing and di­rect­ing a se­quel! Sa­muel L. Jack­son reprises his role as Eli­jah Glass, who suf­fers from brit­tle bone dis­ease, along with his heroic op­po­site David Dunn (Bruce Wil­lis) who can’t be bro­ken at all. They’re un­likely al­lies but will they team up to de­stroy the deadly threat that is The Beast?
