Steve Coogan has returned to the character that made him a household name, publishing Alan Partridge's autobiography. He discusses the way Partridge has evolved over the years and whether he's ever considered killing him off.

The Comic Strip returns to Channel 4 this week with The Hunt for Tony Blair, in which the former Prime Minister is a 1950s fugitive, on the run for mass murder. Political commentators Quentin Letts and Andrew Rawnsley review.

The new Australian film Sleeping Beauty - the debut from writer and director Julia Leigh - tells the story of a university student who signs up for a series of sessions in which her unconscious body is used by men for their erotic fantasies. Author and critic Kate Saunders gives her verdict.
