    I have to admit this is a supreme moment of dread for me as the UK’s most high profile co-production is released – Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. I have tried a number of times to watch the previous Potter films on television, but I’ve struggled to get beyond 20 minutes or so before indifference sets in and my hand reaches for the TV doofer. I see this franchise as strictly for fans only. Magical shenanigans at a retro public school, even with its widening participation remit, does not appeal. Now if he came to do Wand Studies or Potion Science or some such course at a post-1992 university, then that might work – but probably not.
