I'm already looking forward to the 2nd episode. Mary Berry presenting a celebration of N.W.A.  

I think she’s already booked up for ‘ an evening with Eminem ‘ . She’s been hanging out with him for years

I made America great again by watching Amazon Prime's take on Jack Ryan starring him out of the US office (not him, the other one), some big black bloke and a nice blonde woman.

There are a lot of times the plot makes you go, "You what? How could not one of the forty people in the room notice something so basic?" but if you ride with that then it's actually pretty decent. Episode 8 doesn't have the tension of the previous seven so feels an oddly flat way of ending the series but it's still pretty satisfying.

I enjoyed it, I can imagine that it will go down the same route as Designated Survivor and become a bit cliche, america saves the day nonsense.

Yup, he's good value on things like The Voice, but when did the Black Eyed Peas last have a hit?  They had a 'good' couple of albums then disappeared?  Or have I missed something?

* Good = hits, sales, etc.  Personal taste might vary.

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!

He's a charismatic, intelligent and entertaining guy, but somehow that's never seemed to transfer into his band's records. Very bland (other opinions are available).

There was a documentary a few years ago where Joanna Lumley went to live with Will.I.Am for a week, it was actually pretty good tv.

Well, the latest episode of Doctor Who was outstandingly good.

If you missed it, it's on BBC iPlayer. Treat yourself...

https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b0bpwm2m/doctor-who-series-11-3-rosa

I'm surprised it's not attracted condemnation of the BBC from the usual right wing suspects for bringing politics into Doctor Who. After all, there were good people on both sides in 1950s Mississippi, weren't there?

"I am the avenging angel; I come with wings unfurled, I come with claws extended from halfway round the world. I am the God Almighty, I am the howling wind. I care not for your family; I care not for your kin. I come in search of terror, though terror is my own; I come in search of vengeance for crimes and crimes unknown. I care not for your children, I care not for your wives, I care not for your country, I care not for your lives." - (c) Jim Boyes - "The Avenging Angel"

It's simply going back to basics in honouring the show's original remit from its creator Sydney Newman in 1963, who wanted it to be a mix of sci-fi and a time travelling history lesson for a family audience.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sydney_Newman#Doctor_Who

The first ever story was set in the stone age and involved the discovery of fire. The fourth story was a lengthy seven episode exposition about the travels of Marco Polo. Not a bug-eyed monster in sight.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marco_Polo_(Doctor_Who)

They've also done purely historical stories on the French Revolution, the Massacre of St Bartholomew's Eve, The Aztecs, The Romans and others.

I see some bloke from Widnes has won £30K in the latest adverts for Postcode Lottery. He had a Widnes shirt on BTW, so does this mean the good times are gonna return to Widnes? #sugardaddy

I was thinking what I would do if I won that $1.6 billion US lottery. Buying a rugby league club should burn that in about 3 years.

Funnily enough I saw a bloke in a Widnes shirt walking around Swindon town centre yesterday so he's probably spent it all on shopping. 

When I say he, I meant his wife has probably spent it all on shopping and he was carrying the many bags. ?

$1.6bn........ enough to bribe enough on Salford City Council planning committee to let us build a new stadium., Then we need to build it.
