Yes two great programmes back for another series. Our Girl is back and ready for action again after her sad loss and our sad loss of Elvis in the last series. Ohhh it's sad that he's not here but she feels ready to get back to work again and my goodness what a start. What will happen to her now as she seems to have been taken hostage on this new Nigeria mission? Oh it keeps me on the edge of my seat this one, well I guess we will find out on Tuesday at 9pm.
Ackley Bridge also returned this week for it's second series. I loved the first one and it's got off to a great start. I thought I would have lost track too much and not remember what happened before but it all came flooding back. It's a good school drama, some say it's much the same as Waterloo Road but I think it's stands well on it's own. It's full of drama and a few funny bits too so a great all rounder.
A Very English Scandal finished this week and I enjoyed this. It told the Jeremy Thorpe story really well and Hugh Grant was brilliant in the role of Jeremy himself. I feel a few awards coming on for him surely? The original case has been dug up again and it may look as if it may be investigated again, although Jeremy Thorpe is no longer with us now, apparently Norman Scott is still wanting justice. A great drama, if you missed it go and catch up as it is worth a watch.
I made the mistake of watching Secrets of the Chocolate Factory: Inside Cadbury. Well I say mistake it wasn't really as it was so interesting learning about a little company that originally sold cocoa drinking chocolate and now 200 years later is one of the most famous chocolate producers in the world. It just made me want to eat loads of chocolate. Oh it showed you the original Flake adverts (love Flakes), the Milk Tray Man (love Milk Tray) and also the lady who has the one of the best jobs ever and that's chocolate taster for Cadbury.....if she ever resigns I will take her place!!
It is a really interesting programme so if you didn't see it then go watch it. If on a diet you may need to hide behind a cushion, there is major obscene scenes of chocolate. Dairy Milk is my sons favourite and I actually cannot believe I shouted up to him to see if he wanted to watch it......his name is Charlie so you can guess how that sounded. We have a battle in our house as he loves Dairy Milk and I actually (don't tell Cadbury's) prefer Galaxy chocolate. Yikes! But to be honest it isn't a big issue if there is just Dairy Milk in the house......I'm not that loyal to Galaxy.
Well guess who's back tonight........only Poldark!! Cannot wait!! Enjoy if you too are a Poldark fan and have a great week.
Join me tomorrow for Music Monday but until then take care.
I haven't actually watched a lot of tv this week I must admit. I've been too busy but I did catch a good chunk of The Chelsea Flower Show. It is one of my favourite times of the year and although I've never been to Chelsea I am kind of happy to skip the crowds and watch it on the telly.
As a florist myself I was pleased to see Mary Berry there picking up tips from Royal Wedding florist Philippa Craddock. I also liked the information she gave out on different flowers for wedding anniversaries. It was a great show, the Queen managed to hot foot it from the wedding to appear there and there were some very beautiful and inspirational gardens. I now look at mine and feel ashamed....happens every year. One year I feel I may have to go to Chelsea and then kidnap a great gardener to come and turn mine into something amazing.
My other great watch this week was A Very English Scandal. This is a drama starring Hugh Grant and Ben Whishaw and follows the Jeremy Thorpe scandal in which the MP was tried and acquitted for conspiring to murder his former lover Norman Scott. Poor Norman is not going to be silenced is he? He will not go quietly and that's a huge problem for Mr Thorpe. This is written by Russell T Davies who is also responsible for Doctor Who and Torchwood amongst many others and this has started off as a great drama. I'm looking forward to following the story further tonight at 9pm on BBC 1.
The Split continues to be one of the best dramas around at the moment. If you haven't watched it then go and play catch up on the BBC iplayer as it is brilliant. Nicola Walker is amazing and manages to put her talents to so many successful tv dramas and all with very different characters. Stephen Mangan is naughty liar in this and every relationship here is going through the mill but then it is a drama about family lawyers so what do we expect? Oh Hannah you may have to just fall into the arms of your dutch colleague......will she won't she? We'll have to wait and see.
Well that's it this week......I am catching up with Innocent on iplayer so I will review that next week. Be good to yourselves and have a great week. feel free to join me tomorrow for Music Monday.
