The Movie Doctors
The surgery is now open...Simon Mayo and Mark Kermode, the nation's 'go to' experts on all things film, are branching out. In THE MOVIE DOCTORS - a brand new stage show and book - Simon and Mark will bring a unique blend of deep movie knowledge, schoolboy humour and old married couple-style bickering in their new guise as doctors armed and ready to prescribe movie cures for their patients' cinema dilemmas and diagnose movie ailments. Offering a new platform for Mark and Simon to talk (ok, bicker) about all aspects of the world of film, THE MOVIE DOCTORS will be the ideal present for any movie fan.
