Dynamo: Magician Impossible

Series 2 - Episode 1

Radio Times
Review by:

Dynamo knows the secret to a good trick: the reaction. Like his last series (which was nominated for a National Television Award), this is punctuated by gasps, nervous giggles and yelps of disbelief.

Slight and softly spoken, Dynamo is no showman, preferring the street to the stage. On London’s West End pavements he shrinks mobile phones; at a poolside in LA he swallows a necklace then pulls it from his midriff; and in his nana’s favourite pub in Bradford, he predicts the future. These small feats are his bread and butter, but now and then he does something so dazzling the gasps become long howls of wonder. Staunch sceptics will find themselves joining in.
