The Guardian
Exhibition in city where photographer learned his trade focuses on past and present Almost 50 years after he was nearly kicked out of Manchester’s polytechnic for failing his photo theory course, the documentary photographer Martin Parr has trained his lens on the city once more. In Return to Manchester, a major commission for Manchester Art Gallery, Parr creates a portrait of a rapidly changing urban landscape which this year had more cranes on the skyline than any other European city, according to the council’s chief executive.

15 Nov 10:30am Three days, 110,000 books sold: how does David Walliams do it?
The Guardian
With his latest book the fastest-selling title since Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, the celebrity author is getting something right I was incredibly fearful as a child: I hid my copy of The Witches at the top of a cupboard so it couldn’t “get” me; and I made my mum read the Gollum bits of The Hobbit out loud for me, as I was too scared to do it myself. So I was ready to deal with any literary terrors my children might bring to me sensitively and kindly. No go: as yet, my eight-year-old has been unafraid of everything from Gollum to Voldemort, and my kind and understanding face has been unrequired. Except on one occasion – for which I can blame David Walliams. As Walliams’s latest children’s book racks up yet more incredible sales – the Bookseller

15 Nov 1:00am Exhausted hero Tavner valiantly tries to rescue his brother and get his failing mission back on track
The Guardian
John Tavner’s hero is back and is valiantly trying get his failing mission back on track but a missing bag of money and the Iranians look to scupper his plans To sum up: the first season of Patriot (Amazon Prime) is impossible to sum up. And the extensive montage that kicks off season two doesn’t help much. Partly this is due to the two-year gap between them – nobody’s memory is that good – and partly because the plot was impossible to follow in the first place and didn’t really matter anyway. You might have come for the promise of a standard spy thriller involving John Tavner, an intelligence officer with PTSD and a dad higher up in the espionage biz who recruits him for one last job. It’s an opaque non-official cover role, meaning there is backup from the big guys. While posing as manager John Lakeman at an industrial piping firm in Milwaukee, our hero sets out to derail Iran’s nuclear plans. Those who stuck with it stayed for the oddballery that ran through it like an industrial pipe through Milwaukee.
