The lazy days of summer are well underway, which means plenty of time to catch up on some of the best viewing. For Australia Day, we celebrate the nation’s finest Hollywood stars with a dedicated pop-up movie channel. An all-time great, The Sopranos turns 20 this month, so be sure to revisit this TV classic. From there, tick off The Wire and Boardwalk Empire before welcoming the return of Victoria, True Detective and fan favourite Call the Midwife, and new compelling real Australian crime with Ron Iddles: The Good Cop. Plus, we take a look ahead at what 2019 has in store. It wouldn’t be summer without cricket, so we also talk to former England Test cricketer Isa Guha, who’s bringing a fresh new voice to the FOX CRICKET commentary team. With a…

SNEAK PEEK (Un)happy CAMPER David Tennant’s must-see new series puts the fun back in dysfunctional For his latest foray into television, former Doctor Who star David Tennant steps out of his comfort zone – in more ways than one. From long-time writing partners Lena Dunham and Jenni Konner (Girls), new eight-part comedy Camping finds the usually charismatic, dapper Scotsman well and truly under the thumb as downtrodden Walt. When his highly uptight, controlling wife Kathryn (Jennifer Garner) organises a camping trip with friends for Walt’s 45th birthday, the fun celebration soon descends into chaos. “I spend a lot of my time playing characters where I have to pretend to be much cooler and more suave than I really am,” Tennant (pictured) says with a laugh. “It’s very nice to just lean back and be a…

how i keep on track

I love competing and having my game in good shape. When you get all that right, it’s the most amazing feeling. But it takes a lot of dedication. You need to find ways to reinvent yourself by setting goals. It’s not always about winning – it can just be a matter of working on your game. When you see improvement, it gives you the desire to do it in matches. I try not to listen to people when they class me as one of the greatest players ever. You have to keep your feet on the ground. A lot of great players came before me: Stephen Hendry, Steve Davis, John Higgins. To be classed as a great player, you have to do it over a sustained period of time. That’s something…

My current TV obsession is… Wentworth. When I watch TV I must have… it recorded on iQ, so I can fast-forward the ads. My dream evening of television viewing would include… Ooh, that’s hard! I would have Wentworth, The Kettering Incident and Secret City – those are such good thrillers. I also must admit that I’m a sucker for The Real Housewives franchise; New York City is my favourite. Bethenny Frankel is a bit of a legend. I’m not really a huge reality TV person, but the thing about The Real Housewives is it’s the furthest thing you can get from sport, so for me it’s like meditation. My dream television-watching companion is… my brother [actor Ian Meadows], because we just take the p*** and have a bit of fun, but I have…
