Yeah, I loved the 'Girl in the fireplace' episode and thought the clockwork baddies looked familiar. My confusion was the sexy lizard lesbian lady and the sontaron (who last time I looked were an enemy of the Doc) who were strolling around Victorian London without anyone turning a head. 

 

Ah yes. I don't think they have ever adequately explained why they just walk around willy nilly (if they have I've forgotten). Presumably Madame Vestra bought her veil at the same disguises shop where they sold Clark Kent his glasses.

Anyway, I have found an actual current TV programme although, as is traditional, I am so far behind the curve as to be untrue.

 

Cuckoo, now apparently in its 2nd series, is making me laugh rather a lot.

The first series was quite a bit different as you may be aware - the lead was Andy Samberg (the father of this new Cuckoo) - and also the daughter has been recast and as such it feels like a different show now. Personally I don't think it's as good, and it isn't as focused as before but there are enough laughs in there to keep watching. Greg Davies turns in very funny performances in most things he does.

Yes, I picked up that they'd made some (many) changes.  It does seem a bit scattergun but the performances are strong and there are many decent laughs.

Don't think its quite as good as the first series but there are some genuine laugh out loud moments. Greg Davies is the star though.

Tonight on Dave, from 7pm, the complete series of 'Blackadder goes forth'. Just thought you'd like to know.

I watched Big School (David Walliams) on Friday. While it was a sort of mix between LB and Catherine Tate characters, I thought it was actually not bad.

In the club is on tonight. A pox on it.

if women were stereotyped in the same way that men are stereotyped on this bag o sh yte there would quite rightly be hell on. It happens a lot in adverts as well


Also, you would have thought that the actors would at least try to attempt a proper Yorkshire accent. There is too much of the clich├ęd t'ward, t'nurse and t'shop.

Just switched over and watched the second half of 'Doctor Who' for the first time in quite a whilw. Nice to see a good fun adventure instead of the usual "ooh, is the Doctor good really and who is he really and what is the meaning of everything really and that" navelgazing. Swashes buckled, thighs slapped and, almost certainly, mead quaffed.

What does it mean
This tearjerking scene
Beamed into my home
That it moves me so much
Why all the fuss

Just finished watching The Honourable Woman. Eight episodes, first three were okay, last five were woeful but I held on in the hope of it turning itself around.

I won't get that time back.

Watching Hemlock Grove on Netflix. Very strange Steven King type weirdness and I still haven't got a clue what's going on after 10 episodes. Strangely compelling though.

Also I'm late to this but the Kevin Spacey version of House of Cards is excellent.

Thanks for that.  I have them all saved on iplayer and was half dreading watching them.

Me to. A great story, surprised it's not been done before.
