It's January Friday Favourites with Is This Mutton: a bumper edition of reviews of books, TV and podcasts

Dear friends. I bring you a special edition of my round-up of TV, books and podcasts.  You lucky people! 

There's a wide range of entertainment covered including latest Korean thriller The Silent Sea, much hyped film Don't Look Up, a thrilling podcast drama Last Known Position, and three books making big waves - Mrs March, Snowflake and Sorrow and Bliss. I also give my thoughts on The Responder,  Trigger Point, Hidden Assets - and plenty of others.
