The Veil of Time: Thoughts on “Outlander”.

OK... I do realise I'm a little late to the party (like, two years late, but that's what not blogging for two years does to you, eh?), but can we just overlook this fact and talk about "Outlander", please? As an avid fan of the book series by Diana Gabaldon, I have to admit I... Continue Reading →

Broadchurch: Thoughts on Series 2

Series 2 of ITV's crime drama Broadchurch has ust finished airing and here's what I thought about it.

Broadchurch: Final Verdict

So 'Broadchurch' has been over for a little while now... And though I do believe in the saying "If you've got nothing nice to say, just don't say anything at all" (or somesuch), I think I need to voice my reasons for being thoroughly disappointed with the way it ended. Because I'm sad to say... Continue Reading →
