For some reason, I gave up on drama years ago. However I've recently become interested again. I've watched Homeland since the start of the second season - totally missed the first. That last episode was a bit of a surprise.

I prefer American drama to most of the ###### that we serve up.

It would appear there's a new Vic and Bob sitcom that's going to hit the airwaves in the New Year. The trailer suggests it's an absolutely pathetic attempt at turning the clock back to their comedy of years gone by. Sadly, it wasn't funny the first time!

The annual Jools Holland Hootenanny last night was actually very good.

I should like this show in theory but I find it too backslapping and chummy. Possibly just me on this one but that's what I think.

I think it gets weaker each year and the 'live' pretence is getting a little tiresome!

Normally, I'd agree, it's been dire for years but last night's was very enjoyable. Maybe it's me getting older ;)

It's still the best NYE show by a long, long way. I'm old enough to remember the likes of Andy Stewart's hogmanay. Oh dear, oh dear now that was dross.

PQ17 An Arctic Convoy Disaster on BBC2 at 9 should make for interesting viewing.

Like Red Dwarf and also Open All Hour's and Bird's of The Feather.

Let's hope they keep Blackadder in the vault's.

You were not wrong. Very good work from Clarkson and the BBC.

Clarkson did well

It was historically important to hear the voices of survivors who have subsequently died

Clarkson had to simplify the telling of the story and omit a lot of stuff but still gave an excellent account.

He is good at this sort of thing

On Christmas morning, I walked through the area where I grew up, including Varteg Cemetery, where my grandfather is buried. The chapel is now demolished and the graveyard is in an absolutely decrepit overgrown state. However, there was one brand new black marble grave with some poppy memorabilia on it. It was for Gunner Abraham Evans, who had fought at, and survived,  Rorkes Drift. I presume the new gravestone has been paid for by the local branch of the British Legion.

Watched Death comes to Pemberley.

 

I had great fun spotting the  areas it was filmed in/

 

Lyme Park and house is obvious but I think I spotted Hardcastle Crags and Fountains Abbey in there as well.

I watched 'The Thirteenth Tale' the other day. Not great, but again, good for locations, including Duncombe Park (Helmsley) and Burton Agnes (Driffield). One coincidence is that the current occupant of the latter has a sister who was educated at the former, back when it was a school.
