I have visited Greece twice, the first time in 1980 I was pregnant with Angus and was uncomfortable in the August heat, the plumbing. But from the hotel window I could see the Acropolis, and I watched Spanish dancing and singing in the ancient stadium. After my travel-mate returned to Philadelphia from Athens, I traveled to Olympia, and was there exactly when the Olympic Games were held in Moscow. Wow. Olive trees. I remember olive trees and shady groves and a small Olympic Stadium that captured the imagination of so many in the world.

The second time was in Oct 2001, I was in Athens for an HIV/AIDS conference because right after 9/11, so many were afraid of flying, and I was very happy to fly anywhere.

The Defenders: why Netflix's ninja-bashing supersquad is supremely daft TV

With its ancient kung fu death cult, Scrappy Doo crime-fighters and petrified magic dragon buried under New York, the latest Marvel superhero show is supersilly. Couldn’t Netflix have come up with something more special?

Spoiler warning: this blog discusses all eight episodes of The Defenders on Netflix.

With so many caped crusaders crowding our screens, what used to be uncanny has become commonplace. You need something special to stand out. So season one of The Defenders – following Netflix’s various street-level Marvel heroes as they coalesced into an Avengers-style supergroup – deserves credit for achieving something many viewers believed impossible. Namely, making us feel sorry for petulant billionaire Danny Rand (Finn Jones).

Antares: astronomers capture best ever image of a star’s surface and atmosphere

Pictures of red supergiant Antares, 550 light years from Earth, are the most detailed images even taken of a star other than the sun

Astronomers have produced the most detailed ever images of a star other than the sun.

The red supergiant, called Antares, is known as the heart of the Scorpius constellation because of its rosy hue, discernible to the naked eye, and location in the body of the astronomical beast. The new images, produced using the European Southern Observatory’s Very Large Telescope in Chile, are the most detailed yet of the surface and atmosphere of a star beyond our solar system.

Stage fright: the Hollywood stars who bombed on Broadway

As Denzel Washington reveals a return to the stage, which actors are less likely to make a comeback after poor reviews and an underwhelming box office?

Earlier this week, producers announced that Denzel Washington would return to Broadway in Eugene O’Neill’s barroom heartbreaker The Iceman Cometh next March, in a revival directed by George C Wolfe. Though Washington’s first Broadway outing, as Brutus in Julius Caesar, generated tepid reviews, he has since become a heavy hitter, winning a Tony for Fences in 2010 and warm notices for A Raisin in the Sun in 2014.
