So Bro from the Brew got in touch with me and said 'hey sis are you watching Dark Heart?' To which I said no, wrong answer as apparently I should have been watching it as it is really good. Now Bro from the Brew knows a thing or two so I thought I'd better catch up with this amazing programme.
Well I'm glad I did and he was right it is flippin awesome. If you are a bit squeamish and not in favour of a bit of gore then this isn't going to be for you because there are scenes that are a bit yucky. It airs on Wednesday and Thursday evenings and every week has a new story, unfortunately though it concludes this coming week so you have some catching up to do if you haven't seen it. Just have a binge watch when you've got a spare few hours but obviously not when you've just eaten.
It's all about DI Will Wagstaffe who has to investigate a murder or two but meanwhile he is haunted by his past. His parents were brutally murdered when he was a child and the case remains unsolved. He also has a sister he cares about who's boyfriend he doesn't like but he has a nephew he does love to bits and family life gets a bit complicated here. The storylines are fantastic and the writer has really come up with some great twisty cases so don't go thinking it's just another police drama as it really isn't boring at all.
If you watch the first two episodes and think to yourself something has changed about the whole thing by the time you get to the third episode well this is because the first two were released two years ago as a pilot. You may have already seen it and it may ring some bells. In episode three it tends to jump forward slightly and he has a different team around him as well as having a slightly older nephew than in the previous episodes so bear that in mind. Overall blooming fabulous and totally worth a watch, I'm just gutted that it will be coming to an end and I need more!!! You need ITV Wednesday and Thursday at 9pm or catch up on the ITV Hub.
I do love the odd chat show at the moment, my favs are Graham Norton's and Jonathan Ross so do catch up with those from last week if you didn't see them. Graham Norton had Michael Buble, Taron Egerton, Carey Mulligan and Sir Ian McKellen who was so funny, I loved him.
Jonathan Ross had a Spice Girls Special so just in case you have been on a different planet this week the girls are getting back together for a quick tour. They have a chat about that and the fact they will be without Victoria (no loss there in my opinion) and generally just have a bit of a girly squabble about some stuff. I was a bit worried that after this interview it could be all over by the end of next week but I think it's all girl power banter.
I love The Spice Girls and frankly love seeing them back together, they are genuinely friends still anyway and for whatever reason they are touring again it doesn't matter does it? As Mel B says on the show the money will come in handy for her lawyers bills - at least she's honest. I think they are entertaining even without singing but it was interesting to see them get a bit nervous when asked to give an impromptu sing song. Bless maybe they need a bit more practice. Mind you I would probably freak out if someone asked me to randomly sing......hang on though I'm not a Spice Girl, hey I could be though if they need a stand in for Posh Spice......I can pout!
Kylie was on the show too as well as the very funny John Bishop. I got a bit emotional when he spoke about his son 'coming out as gay', he was just lovely how he spoke about him and I thought to my myself 'what a top bloke'. One person I was surprised about was tennis player Novac Djokovic. I haven't really seen him do any interviews so I didn't know a lot about him but he was very interesting a really nice chap. You see that's what I love about a chat show, the fact that you can come away learning something new about someone and usually be pleasantly surprised.
Anyway I'm going on so I'll stop there for this week. I could frankly just go on about the telly all week but we need a change of subject. I won't even get on the subject of the wrong person going off Strictly and I won't say who it was in case you haven't seen it yet......but no sorry wrong choice! Look see I've even turned into a dancing expert - NOT! Just my opinion.
You take care of yourselves and I will be back for Music Monday funnily enough tomorrow which is Monday.
Bye for now.....
