Where have all the programmes gone again, well the decent ones? It’s been a bit flat this week regarding great tv, everything seems to have finished or due to finish. Think we are need of some more exciting new telly programmes.
It was the end of the Agatha Christie’s Ordeal By Innocence this week which I did love. It was strange as there was no detective to sort it all out so us viewers had to try and work it out ourselves. I think I went through everyone and never guessed what was going on there. It was very gripping and a brilliant 'whodunit' as an Agatha Christie classic should be.
The Durrells continues to be very entertaining and so funny. I think Louisa loves Spiro really as she got a bit jealous with him spending so much time with the new family who had arrived. Ohhh come on get it together. I understand he is married though isn’t he? We’ve not seen Mrs Spiro though have we? Mmmm there may be hope if she doesn’t exist.
Another pair we need to see together is is Ruby and Gabriel in The Good Karma Hospital before it ends tonight if possible. Oh and we need Dr Lydia and Greg to get to be a more permanent fixture, I know I just love a wedding so someone is surely going to get hitched. Well we may be in luck as tonight we see Dr Ram and Mala’s wedding....yes!! I’m happy. Great series but it’s gone so quick, going to miss it.
New stuff is on the way so all is not lost. A new drama tonight for the BBC called The Woman in White, Poldark is due for a return soon and Who Wants To Be A Millionaire is set to come back this month. That may not be popular as it is going to be presented by Jeremy Clarkson, ok for me but he does rub some people up the wrong way so I’ll be keeping my eye on that one.
Have a great week, if you like a bit of music then join me tomorrow for Music Monday. Take care for now and thank you so much for reading.
Didn't they do well? Did they? Well it came against some harsh criticism. I am off course talking about the rebirth of The Generation Game with Mel and Sue. Of course people were gonna have a go, some people live to criticise every single little thing in life but really this?
It was never going to be the original, nobody can take the place of Brucie, Larry Grayson or Jim Davidson here but I think Mel and Sue gave it a good go. I remember the days of the 'scores on the doors' and the pure entertainment it brought to our Saturday nights, I did consider this when watching it last Sunday.
It was funny, a bit nostalgic, part of me did think was it necessary to bring it back but hey why not? Some programmes should be left in the archives because of their classic value but I think if you fancy a bit of fun and light entertainment then go for it and have a watch but please don't take it too seriously, I don't think that was the BBC's intention. Chill everyone!!
I cheered with the rest of the country when Ruby got hold of Dr Gabriel and kissed him in The Good Karma Hospital. Thank goodness, how long have I personally been waiting for that? I feel I'm not on my own. Yeah they pretend to dislike the pants of each other but really we all know they have better plans for their pants! TOO MUCH Sue from the Brew - Ok I'll leave it there but I feel we may go through the regrettable feelings for a bit then 'boom' full blown romance. Ruby has a bit more on her mind now so she may be a bit distracted by certain family matters but I think Dr Varma is going to support her because he 'luuuurvs her'. Great series so far, glued to it and can't wait for more tonight at 9pm on ITV.
A total newbie this week and it came in the form of the great Agatha Christie drama Ordeal By Innocence. I enjoyed the first one very much and crikey there are a few famous faces here. Bill Nighy, The A Word's Morven Christie, Eleanor Tomlinson (Demelza from Poldark) and Anna Chancellor (Duckface or Henrietta from Four Weddings and a Funeral), good quality acting caliber which makes good viewing. I can't help feeling that although Christian Cooke is doing a great job in the role of Mickey, taking over from Ed Westwick after his sex abuse allegations it was a role that belonged to Ed. I just have to get that out of my head because you can't dwell on it I suppose. It is brilliant and so worth watching, yes someone has been murdered, by whom though.....oh that's it now, we have to work out who the true killer is in classic Agatha Christie style. Can't wait. This adds to a packed Sunday evening of TV 9pm on BBC1 but hey watch or catch up later.
Two words to finish up this week KEEPING FAITH. If you have not watched this eight part drama then you really need to. It has everything and I have raved about it before, not only the drama but the music as well. It is written well, acted well and is one of the best dramas I have seen for ages. I cannot understand why it is not on prime time BBC but it was aired on BBC Wales and the full series is on the iplayer. The finale was this week and it just ended in a breathtaking cliffhanger, I am understanding that it will be back for a second series. YES!!!! Cannot wait. Congratulations to everyone involved and I'm so glad Eve Myles didn't give up on her acting career, I feel this came at the right time for her and she has done the role proud.
It's already gained a big fan base and the sales of a certain yellow coat are going to rocket I think. I have a similar one in blue but it's not the same......see I'm a fellow 'yellow coat fanatic'.
Right I'm off and looking forward to another great week.....I wish you well and if you fancy a bit more of this crazy world with Sue from the Brew then join me again tomorrow for Music Monday.
Take care for now.
I love The Durrells and I'm glad to see them all back. It looks so idilic where they live and such a relaxed lifestyle but they all have a lot going on. Well Leslie does with his three girlfriends. Mrs Durrell she had to interfere eh? Well she is a mum after all and I like how she does care so much it gets her into so much trouble. I can't wait to see what happens tonight. I think this has come back even funnier, not that it wasn't before but I laughed my socks off at this first episode.
Another great drama to return was The Good Karma Hospital. It was Ruby's turn to go solo on the night shift. She did hit some minor problems but got through. Oh the sexual tension between her and Dr Varma is unbelievable, will they won't they? I think they may do eventually but hey we need a bit of a build up first. Well I do. This continues tonight on ITV at 9pm.
Shetland came to an end this week and I have to say that I think this has been one of the best things on the BBC. It's brilliantly written and the acting is superb. This episode sent me around more houses than I'm sure the Shetland Islands have. Woah so many different ways that it went and I still didn't work it out in the end, that was quite a surprise. It ended with style and I'm so glad that I wasn't confused or disappointed. Well done to everyone involved.....can't wait until the next one.
Oh my goodness did you see Casualty? I won't say too much in case you haven't caught up but I'm just going to say it's lovely and romantic, all fluffy and then 'Boom' tragedy strikes in the last seconds. Now I always have this little worry about these things happening in programmes. What if I don't make it to the next episode for some reason, such as the Grim Reaper decides to pay me a visit. I'll not know what happened to Robyn and Glen so please feel free to pray a lot or see a psychic for me if this should be the case, thank you.
Now I'm sorry to hear that Ant Mcpartlin was in the news this week for all the wrong reasons. I wish him all the best and hope he gets the help he needs to make a full recovery. I know I did comment that I thought Saturday Night Takeaway was becoming a bit tiresome but blimey I didn't want it to finish in this way. I was actually warming to this new series and enjoying it once more so I eat my words. I admire Dec for carrying on with the last two episodes and this will be hard for him as I don't think he's been without Ant. So I wish them both well and I do hope to see them back together very soon.
Have a great week watching the tv, please leave a comment and tell me what you like watching at the moment, I'm interested to know if everyone is out there and watching the kind of things I am or if there is anything else I've not featured and you would like me too.
Thank you for reading, please feel free to join me for Music Monday tomorrow but for now......take care.
Pass the Remote
