Walking Dead/Breaking Bad link Confirmed

There’s been a long-standing theory that AMC’s two biggest shows; The Walking Dead and Breaking Bad, are set in the same multi-verse, with Breaking Bad set in the years preceding Walking Dead’s zombie apocalypse. There’s some (but not much) evidence to support this, including: Walt’s blue meth appears in a bag of Merle’s drugs The…

Peter Kay’s Car Share, Episode 1 Review

Usually if a TV show is bad, I just turn it off and watch something else, but for Peter Kay’s latest sitcom; Car Share, I had to make an exception. I could hardly write a long and ranty blog post about it without watching it, could I? The program focusses on John (Kay) who, due…

Paddington Review

Four years ago it was announced that David Heyman, producer of the Harry Potter series, would be turning the much loved character of Paddington Bear into a blockbuster movie. I was of course, enthralled and and have been following production of the film ever since. Casting announcements, filming rumours, trailers, the exit of Colin Firth…

Not Going Out Recording – Series 7 Episode 8

After a year and a half of regularity attending BBC Radio Recordings, I decided to try something different, the recording of a TV show. The show in question was the BBC 1 sitcom ‘Not Going Out’. The show focuses around Lee (played by comedian Lee Mack) who spends his life doing nothing and getting on…

The Animals of Farthing Wood

I don’t know what it is about children’s television these days, it’s just so different. Gone are the hand drawn cartoons and grainy animations I used to watch, replaced with cutting-edge, technology enriched spectacles with much higher budget then anything I saw. Perhaps it is because I’m older now that I don’t warm to these…

For fans of Finnemore

For those of you who spend countless hours systematically swooning over pictures of John Finnemore’s face, I have a present. However  for those of you who do not indulge in this particular pass-time, you mean nothing to me.

Blandings – Throwing Eggs Review

So it’s around that time of year when scores of last year’s comedy successes begin to return to our screens. Not only does that mean the return of Pramface and the elusive Jonathan Creek but means we see Blandings return, a series based on the works of the great PG Woodehouse. Blandings is a delightfully…

Sherlock Series 3 Review

It was two years ago that we saw Sherlock Holmes fall to his death and somehow survive. Two years of constant waiting, constant theories and fanficiton. Hours have been spent anticipating the return of Sherlock Holmes. And now another Series is over. There were three episodes in the third series of Sherlock, all of which…

The Time of the Doctor Review

So it’s the end of an era, the end of an age, the end of a Doctor. On Christmas Day Matt Smith put on his final performance in the role of our favorite Time Lord the Doctor, before hanging up his fez and handing the job over to Peter Capaldi. But what did I think…

Ending on a Low

This year two of E4’s most loved and praised dramas drew to a close, both ending in very different styles. For Skins, which ended earlier this year, their tactic was to finish with three final episodes, each focussing on an old character from the show’s seven year run. However Misfits, the fifth series of which…
