  1. Shame about Doctor Who on 290,000, as last year same episode number was 422,000 (granted that was in May) and it’s only picking up around 48,000 more in timeshifted. Hope it’s doing good numbers on iView, though I still think a repeat at 7:30pm on ABC Me sometime during the week would be good, like on a Tuesday or Wednesday.

  2. Liked the Bridget Jones movies…had not seen last nights….argh…it was a shocker…so stoopid…somehow the kooky 20 something did not transfer to a kooky 40 something…even with Colin Firth…and Mc Dreamy….I had to to turn off..
