It’s a compelling story, and one that’s brought to vivid reality by an exceptional cast and some brilliant writing. William Hurt is masterful as the determined Feynman, a moral and extremely gifted scientist who’s ravaged by cancer and has a slight hint of The Dude from ‘The Big Lebowski’ about him. Like all dramatisations, it’s likely ‘The Challenger’ takes a few liberties with the truth, but this is nevertheless a gripping and revealing account of the Challenger disaster aftermath.
Rotunda Bar & Restaurant
This King's Cross bar and restaurant has a cracking location when sunshine hits in summer. Sure, it's address says traffic-heavy York Way but Rotunda's real plus comes from its view out back, of the bobbing barges and boats of Regent's Canal. There's usually a cute little garden set up on the terrace, too. The food is focused on British produce, but with influence from across Europe. Expect dishes such as mushroom and truffle arancini, duck fritters with gin and juniper mayonnaise, Josper-grilled steaks and pan-fried sea bass with a saffron, mussel and langoustine risotto and sauce vierge. The drinks list includes seasonal cocktails, beers from Camden Town Brewery, Pressure Drop, Beavertown, Five Points and Brewdog, and a wine list with an old world slant.
Venue says: “King's Cross restaurant and bar serving meat from our own farm. The waterside terrace overlooking Regent's Canal is a great summer spot.”
