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.
