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 →
Series 2 of ITV's crime drama Broadchurch has ust finished airing and here's what I thought about it.
The Twelfth Doctor is..... Peter Capaldi!! Personally, I love this choice. I liked him in all his roles so far and I don't mind that he already had parts in Doctor Who and Torchwood.

Because I'm sad to say... Continue Reading →

I have to admit that I only learned about this show a few hours before it started airing but it had David Tennant in it, it was... Continue Reading →
When I first started watching British television a few years ago I had a look at 'Life on Mars' and dismissed it after the first episode. Back then I was after shiny London-based plots with good-looking heroes like Adam Carter from 'Spooks'. There's a lot to be said about 'Life on Mars' but shiny and... Continue Reading →
