Oh I don't like it when someone calls time on a series. I'm really not ready to stop watching Car Share yet, it is one of the funniest programmes on tv, one I look forward to when it comes around. I wonder if there's a helpline to enable fans to cope bit like the time when Take That split up.
I can understand from Peter Kay's point of view that there is always a danger you bring it back and it loses it's impact so let it go while it's on a high. Maybe he is just too busy to write and film anymore of this programme, I can imagine that he would come back with something else equally funny. I can't help thinking there is unfinished business though. I think we all wanted the happy ending, the ride away into the sunset moment, then I got to thinking that sometimes the girl doesn't always get her guy in real life. I would just like a Christmas special if it's not too much trouble, just to wean us out gently. How fabulous that a programme became so successful from such a simple idea. It's just two people on their journey to and from work, similar to Gogglebox which is just us watching people sitting watching tv, another big success. Just goes to show the simple things in life are what matters.
I'm binge watching Line of Duty so don't tell me what happens. Wow, can't think why I didn't watch it before, it's really good. Everyone kept saying it was so I just wondered if I was really missing out and yes I definitely was. I'm just coming to the end of Series 2, so glad they seem to have go rid of the shaky camera work on Series 1 as it was giving me a headache. it's probably some new fan-dangle way of filming but I was beginning to think I could of held the camera more steady after having a few vodkas. It is brilliant and very weird to watch Keely Hawes in this and then turn over to watch The Durrells, completely different roles but loving the Durrell family so much, very funny.
Loving the new series of Doctor Who, yes I'm a big Doctor Who fan and think the writing in this series is brilliant, going back to what it should be like. I was drifting off and getting a bit fed up with some older episodes. This last programme in the series about the spooky house was proper 'hide behind the settee' type stuff. It was close but then if went behind my sofa I would be right next to a wall and would have feared being sucked into my house, not good so I hid behind a cushion instead. Long may the great writers carry on. Can't believe we are going to be experiencing another regeneration. Kind of getting excited but then it's always sad, I cried when Matt Smith went, they make the whole process really emotional. Another helpline needed, regeneration helpline.
Tonight I saw the drama about Barbara Windsors life 'Babs'. Just the title made me giggle as this is my nickname. Finally my name on the tv.....but no it does belong the legend and great talent of Barbara Windsor. I was just given the name because someone referred to my humour as at one time being very cheeky like Babs herself. I've always had a 'Carry On' type sense of humour and never used to miss an innuendo if I could pop it in somewhere (see!). The lady herself has had a very varied and at sometimes troubled life but my goodness she shone through. I love her laugh and the sparkle she gives off, she really is one of life's treasures. It was filmed in a different way, not the usual drama going through her life but by herself actually looking back on on her life, commenting on certain situations, played by some great actress's. I loved the real Babs singing at the end, that was a nice touch. It's a lovely little biography to watch if didn't catch it.
So that's it for this week and onto another one, can't quite believe where time is going. You all take care now and please come back tomorrow for Music Monday. Thanks for reading........
