    1. According to the TV guide, it’s moving to 8.30pm Wednesdays from next week. To fast-track the show, they would have to play it on a Thursday night, but Thursdays are a little busy at the moment with The Bachelorette and Gogglebox.

      10 played two episodes last week to catch-up with the US as it’s a once-a-week show over there, and we were a week behind.

      1. Thanks for that Zoodle, I had read they were going to move it to Saturday nights, glad they didn’t otherwise it’d be a 10Play show for me. Also glad that we are up to date with the US, avoids any potential spoilers online.
