About this issue: Overview

Hull and hot water
After Fleabag and Motherland, Hullraisers is the latest comedy series to put the lives of ordinary women – and the scrapes they get into – centre stage. Sarah Freeman meets its star Leah Brotherhead – who also reveals why Bridgerton was uncharacteristically unglamorous for her.

Pack drill
With more stray dogs by area than anywhere in the world, Kathmandu’s canine population face disease, starvation and the threat of rabies. Jack Walton meets Sam Davies, the British man whose organisation is achieving remarkable results in keeping numbers down and health up.

Vanishing picture
The man who invented the motion picture, contrary to widely held opinion, did not do so in France or the US but in Leeds. And yet the legacy of Louis De Prince disappeared – as did the man himself, writes Paul Fischer.
