Welcome to Wrap Party, the podcast that toasts the excellence of the creatives and craftspeople working behind-the-scenes on some of your favourite films and TV shows.



  • Good Omens (TV series); a “big” fantasy show that Claire herself doesn’t fully understand, in which Michael Sheen plays the angel Aziraphale who “looks like he could walk the streets of Soho today” and David Tennant channels Keith Richards as the demon Crowley, in this lively and irreverent adaptation of the 1990 fantasy novel by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett. Watch on Prime Video.

  • The Limehouse Golem (film); a serial killer, dubbed The Limehouse Golem, terrorises Victorian London in this Hammer-horror style period drama (think corsets, hats and lots of feathers! But no bonnets because they’re “difficult to light”), starring Bill Nighy, Douglas Booth and Olivia Cooke. Watch on Prime Video.
