The zombie sequel has settled well into a thriller about two people with leadership qualities – Rick (Andrew Lincoln) and Michonne (Danai Gurira) – who are under authority’s thumb but always plotting to break free.

Film choice

The Great Escaper (Oliver Parker, 2023), 7am, 12.45pm, 8pm, Sky Cinema Premiere
This was Glenda Jackson’s swansong – and probably will be for her co-star Michael Caine too – so Oliver Parker’s fact-based drama carries a ton of emotion, even without its D-day commemoration plot. They play Rene and Bernie, a married couple living in a retirement home in Hove. When navy veteran Bernie misses the deadline to attend the 70th-anniversary bash in Normandy, he decides to pop on a ferry and go anyway. What begins as an “old bloke on one final adventure” comedy develops into a tale of love, ageing and death, as Bernie relives the trauma of conflict and Rene recalls their courtship. A deeply moving film, with the two leads playing their life-affirming roles to the hilt. Simon Wardell
