Derren Brown's "Grown-Up" Magic

You might have noticed a shift in Derren Brown's magic routines over the years. He has moved from sheer astonishing tricks to themed, point-making documentaries. His recent show, Miracles for Sale, is typical of the kind of fraudulent-medium-debunking show that really inspires him these days.

In a recent article, he explained: "Over the years, I've entirely grown out of the urge that got me into magic.I've pulled it into areas that I think are more grown-up and worthwhile, into areas that aren't about me going 'Ta-dah! Aren't I amazing!'
