That Mitchell and Webb Sound Recording – Series 5 Episode 4

Is it worrying to not know who Little Mix are? I know it’s quite unusual but I wouldn’t say that ‘worrying’ is the appropriate adjective. Well anyway, I was up at the BBC the other night, to go and see David Mitchell and Robert Webb record the fifth series of their Radio Sketch Show –…

The Day of the Doctor Review

So yesterday Doctor Who did it. It hit the big 50! To mark the occasion a special episode was created, something that looks back over Doctor Who’s past but also sets it in a new direction. ‘The Day of the Doctor’ has been anticipated by fans for months, or maybe it was just me. Not…

Dilemma Recording – Series 3 Episode 3

I don’t really watch panel shows. I must admit that when conversations with my fandom-friends drifts to 8 out of 10 Cats, A League of their Own or Was it Something I Said, I don’t really have anything to add. However one of the two panel shows with which I do frequent myself (the other…
