Mark Ravenhill reviews David Jason: The Show Must Go On!, which follows an amateur dramatic group being mentored by Jason as they prepare to perform a stage play in the West End; and When Romeo Met Juliet, which sees two contrasting schools come together to put on a professional production of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet with the help of actor Adrian Lester.

Skin is a new exhibition at the Wellcome Collection which invites us to re-valuate the largest organ in the human body; our skin. Bidisha reviews.

The Spanish horror sequel [Rec] 2, which has just opened in cinemas, picks up the action 15 minutes after where the original 2007 film left off, with a terrifying virus still running rampant in a quarantined Barcelona apartment block. Adam Smith considers the timelines of sequels and prequels and whether they all add up.

Barney Platts-Mills talks about his 1969 film, Bronco Bullfrog. Set in the East End of London and based around the Suedehead subculture, the cast was made up of local youths, who after this film never acted again. Although now seen as a British classic, the film has never been widely screened.

John Wilson continues his series of reports on the four contenders for UK City of Culture 2013, today he visits Sheffield.

Producer Georgia Mann.
