Famous people in The Bill

Once upon a time, every British actor had been in The Bill. These days, watching old episodes, famous people pop up looking young. For example, this is (the current) Barnaby from Midsummer Murders: I knew he was in the episode and worked out who he was based on him being the only male guest character…. Continue reading

The Bill

I’ve been watching a lot of The Bill from 1990/1991 recently. UKTV Play had a load of it up there, and then the series I was watching suddenly said it was going at the end of May. The next series will go at the end of June. Each ‘series’ has about 100 episodes, which I… Continue reading

Crime drama again

It’s really all gone crime around here. After reading one Daisy Dalrymple book I somehow ended up taking another off the shelf when I put that one back. I still like the time before they get married the best. And as much as I like Sakari, I miss Lucy. I’m still watching Line of Duty… Continue reading

Watching telly

I am terrible at watching telly. I tape a lot, think I’ll get round to it, but somehow the evening’s gone and I haven’t got to the telly-watching bit. And then a few months ago I started a sleep CBT and one of the things I had to do was to relax for an hour… Continue reading

The Persuaders!

A small mention in a post sort of comparing it to The Avengers and the next thing I know I’ve watched all the episodes (at one a day – there’s only 24) and have bought the DVD. It did seem like The Avengers at the beginning with the Judge in… Continue reading

The OC

Back when I finished watching all of Whose Line Is it Anyway? and considering what to watch, I came across the OC, thought, “I can’t remember how it started”, watched the first episode and then all the rest. All 92 (42 minutes) episodes. I would describe it as being about a teenager from the poor… Continue reading

Whose Line is it Anyway?

Back in December, when I was ill, I started watching Whose Line is it Anyway? on All4. Earlier this year I got into a pattern of watching it at lunchtimes when I worked from home. This week I finished all 136 episodes. I did enjoy it, but sometimes it got samey. Watching a lot in… Continue reading

Yes, Minister

I’ve been thinking about Yes, Minster recently. Yesterday I read a headline that said one-sixth of British people wouldn’t take the Covid vaccine when we have one. At first I thought this is just clickbait, but it was The Guardian and I was curious, so I read it. And it was all about how people… Continue reading
