A Christmas Carol, The Disaster Artist, An Unremarkable Body, Rose Wylie, Crown Court

A Christmas Carol at London's Old Vic, The Disaster Artist film, An Unremarkable Body by Elisa Lodato, Rose Wylie at Serpentine Galleries, and Crown Court TV series returns.

A Christmas Carol is London's Old Vic Theatre's Christmas offering this year. It's a new version by Jack Thorne (who wrote Harry Potter and The Cursed Child) directed by Matthew Warchus and starring Rhys Ifans as Ebenezer Scrooge
The Disaster Artist is a tribute to one of the worst films ever - Tommy Wisseau's The Room. If the original was such a stinker, can a film about it be funny about the ineptitude or just cruel?
Elisa Lodato's novel An Unremarkable Body tells the story of a middle-aged daughter coming to terms with the death of her mother.
There's an exhibition of work by Rose Wylie at London's Serpentine Galleries
Crown Court was a daytime TV series which ran for 12 years from 1972. It's being resurrected with Judge Rinder as the gavel-banging star; Judge Judy meets 12 Angry men?
Tom Sutcliffe's guests are Patrick Gale, Briony Hanson and John Mullan
The producer is Oliver Jones.
