Last Ripper Street tonight. Great series. Jerome Flynn's career resurrection gets better and better.
With the best, thats a good bit of PR, though I would say the Bedford team, theres, like, you know, 13 blokes who can get together at the weekend to have a game together, which doesnt point to expansion of the game. Point, yeah go on!

Some great telly on Sunday nights ATM. Call the Midwife, Wonders of Life and Top Gear (not fashionable to say this but I like it). Good old BBC.

Been enjoying a US show that to my knowledge hasn't been aired over here yet called Community. It's a quirky sitcom about a group of mature students at a community college. Clever script with lots of references and foreshadowing that are only noticed on repeat viewings. When I say quirky it's not quite in the Mighty Boosh league but they have had episodes filmed using claymation, one rendered like a video game and the two paintballing episodes were brilliant.

This latest series of Top Gear hasn't exactly been vintage stuff, IMO.

'Dancing on the Edge' finished last night. I wasn't sure about it when it started, but ended up enjoying it quite a lot, mainly due to the excellent cast and music.

Who'd have thought that Mel Smith would turn in a fine and understated performance like he did? Especially if you've ever watched 'Morons from Outer Space'. :D

I saw a trailer for 'The Challenger' on the BBC last night. A dramatisation of the enquiry into the Challenger space shuttle disaster. Looks like it might be good, especially for fans of Richard Feynmann and his books.

William Hurt plays Feynmann, and the cast also includes Bruce Greenwood, Brian Dennehy, Kevin McNally, Joanne Whalley, Eve Best and Henry Goodman.

Well, that was pretty damn good! William Hurt had a good attempt at Feynman, although the character was at least 20% Donald Sutherland. The rest of the cast were very good indeed.

The story was, I suppose necessarily, simplified, but if you want to know more, Feynman's book 'What do you care what other people think?' is a very fine read.

missed it: ######. It got really good reviews and William Hurt doesn't turn poor performance in.

Just started watching 'The Syndicate' a lot of which was filmed in Bradford. Girl has just met a lad who claims to have just signed for the Bulls and has some sort of Bulls t-shirt on. Proper coverage at last!!

Saw it was a Kay Mellor effort so decided to leave it.

Currently working our way thought season 2 blu rays of Game Of Thrones ready for season 3. Superb stuff.

Not exactly a fan of hers either, just watching it to do a bit of scene and extra spotting. There was quite a big scene filmed at Odsal though.

I think I'll give it a look for the Bradford on TV angle. I was in the same year at school with the lass Natalie Gavin, we spoke only occasionally though, she's been in quite a few things now, good on her!

Worth catching on iPlayer, if you are able. If not, get the book. And there is plenty of the real Richard Feynman on YouTube.

Watched the first episode of I, Claudius last night on BBC Four. Typical for the period the whole thing looks very staged, but the writing was spot on and the acting top notch. Even Brian Blessed managed not to shout.

Steady on. It might be all those things (it's certainly a waste of airtime), but surely the Six Nations coverage and the fawning smugness of Inverdale is worse?

Either half of that wasn't Bradford, or there's half of Bradford I haven't seen.
