I have been watching early episodes of Death in Paradise, strange to see S2 Ep6 as Ralf Little as the bad guy, then turn up as the Inspector in a later series. Maybe Guadaloupe has a very liberal stance on rehabilitation.?

Early on it was pretty strong and I liked Ben Miller . But boy it’s a dead horse being truly flogged lately . And it must be the most formulaic show in history . There’s a whole island but only one of four people who could have done it every week , who coincidentally they already have pictures of they can stick on the board .

I agree. Recently it has been dreadful, they need to go beyond a UK based inspector, who hates the heat, while being furloughed for some invisible misdemeanor. 

Maybe, as it is a French Province, introduce Inspector Clousou. No, that would be worse than Ardal O'Hanlan.

It needs an new injection.

Kill Don Warrington?

Kill Catherine?

Link two or three shows to one Murder?

I have been to Jamaica,  after 3 days you get used to the heat & humidity,  why are these idiots still wiping themselves down, like plantation owners, after 3 series?

Give half retired ex-Eastenders actors a holiday? It has lost its charm, it needs beefing up, it maybe needs a half-way CSI type moosh

Belated thanks to @John Drake as have just signed up to britbox to watch the old Dr Who’s  

It's made lockdown bearable for me. 

I already own them all on DVD, but it's so much easier streaming them. I gave up on the mission of watching them all in order, as some of those early Hartnell ones are a bit dull tbh. I swear that time actually does go into reverse anytime I attempt to watch The Web Planet or The Sensorites (even though the latter has Peter 'Crackerjack!' Glaze in it) but I'll never grow tired of watching Tom Baker at his best in the mid-70s golden era.

I've also watched Hetty Wainthropp Investigates on there, but that's another story. ?

Ah a fellow Whovian. I love classic Who, not too keen on NuWho but have watched them all......once, and only once it will stay.

Recently watched a story from each  Doctor. Started with Space Museum, then , Invasion, The Daemons, Seeds Of Doom, Arc Of Infinity,  Trial of a Time Lord ( 9-14), Ghostlight., then enjoyed it so much went through the process again with, Tenth Planet, The Web Of Fear, Monster Of Peladon, Invasion of Time,  Earthshock, Timelash, and Remembrance Of The Daleks.

Good start to the Eurovision night

Ooh ahh, just a little bit of Gina G

The Beeb went a bit Eurovision mad last night. 

Not that I'm complaining! ?

For the record, the votes of the Bradford jury would have been going to Iceland (quirky and contemporary), Italy (top notch power ballad), Ireland (Katy Perry inspired Europop), Russia (mad as a box of frogs) and Ukraine (mesmerisingly strange). Shame we didn't get to hear more of them on the main show, there were plenty of good entries this year, but YouTube has them all preserved for posterity.

I’ve skipped 1&2 and started with Jon Pertwee. Taking a while to get used to the slower pace but so far so good

Pertwee picks up speed after the first season. Those early seven parters are hard work.

I'm currently watching his final season. Not that well regarded by many fans, but it's one of my favourites as it's the time I became absolutely hooked on Doctor Who as a kid, and the opening titles that year are still the best ever, IMO.

Box of frogs? They all are. I missed the total madness that should've been last night.

Pretty much every working british actor has been though its doors.  I can see why they like a couple of weeks on the island while being paid!


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!

Treat yourself to this instead. The EBU/BBC have uploaded the 1974 ESC, hosted in Brighton, in full on YouTube for one week only.

Featuring ABBA, Olivia Newton-John, Katie Boyle, a beardy bloke from Netherlands with a fake hurdy-gurdy, a song that started a revolution, another song that influenced a referendum (allegedly), an incomprehensible scoring system and lots and lots of polyester.

What's not to like?

We've been re watching Spooks since lockdown started. I only picked it up in 2007, after I met my now wife, so early series were new to me. Series 10 was completed on Saturday evening, so just the film left. 

It surprised me how little it felt to have aged given it started in 2002, with the only things that really dated it to me were the cars, mobile phones and a fixation with boot cut jeans for the lead characters.
