  1. I really like Lego Master. Hamish makes it all hum, the contestants and creations are interesting and BrickMan wears his heart on his sleeve and you can see how much he does not enjoy eliminations. I think MC will pick up after Lego, but then The Voice starts again.

  2. MasterChef was great but the real gem of the evening was the Dawn French special (which David wrote about last week). Such a powerful, funny, confronting and brilliant performance which reminded me of Hannah Gadsby’s Nanette. My partner and I were in tears of empathy and laughter.

  3. I watched a bit of Lego but found myself getting bored so over I went to House Rules. Love the banter between the judges this season (maybe not quite so many love love loves would be nice though lol) Joh would have to be one of my fav presenters on TV.

  4. Any word on the new Line of Duty FTA, David? I’m not sure about this year’s Masterchef yet – too many opportunities for catch up for me to commit to watching religiously.

  5. It’s a shame to see Masterchef low it’s great as always they need to start it at 7 so the competition doesn’t get the jump on it but by ten standards it’s rating pretty good
