  1. If there are limited BGT episodes, I am not sure why they are rushing through or is it just a filler until the launch of Farmer wants a wife? And are they waiting for Doctor Doctor to finish on their competitors network? or another reason?

  2. I really want to support our drama practitioners, but when something as idiotic and insulting as The Secrets She Keeps is hailed as ‘riveting’ etc. etc. I feel nothing but dismay. It’s very lazy, simplistic and goes for shock value over good quality. And some of the performances are just awful.

  3. Well yesterday I noticed that Line of Duty season 5 is now available on Stan. That first episode was amazing and we binge watched the first 3 episodes last night. Compelling tv drama at its very best.
