TV’s greatest crime drams (in our opinion) Line of Duty is back.  We reviewed the finale of the last series here 2 years ago and we are big fans.  However, there are some glaring problems with it that really need addressing. AC-12, the anti-corruption unit in the police, are all about sniffing out bent coppers […]

It would appear that Simon Cowell now wants to be the Lord of the Dance.  Having seen X Factor lose to Strictly over the years, he has decided that if you can’t beat them, join them.  The Greatest Dancer is the BBC’s latest talent show up against The Voice, but it is produced by Cowell’s […]

Iiiiit’s Chriiiiistmaaaaas (©Noddy Holder 1973).  Which means Christmas telly.  When we reviewed Christmas day telly the other year, we made this comment: This Christmas we’re treated to a stocking full of Christmas specials by the BBC. ITV on the other hand showed a load of Harry Potter films and Paul O’Grady doing something with dogs.  […]

It’s taken me three weeks to write this review because I wanted to give Mortimer and Whitehouse: Gone Fishing a chance to bed in.  Three weeks on, I really, really, really want to like it more.  The premise is simple, comedians and chums Paul Whitehouse and Bob Mortimer going fishing and chewing the fat…but not […]

Car Share is back (HURRAH!!) but it is the finale (BOOO!!!).    If you remember the last series ended with John and Kayleigh not getting together; cue national outpouring of grief. “How could he leave us like this?  We want a happy ending!”  The cynics may say that this ending left it more open for a […]

The Generation Game is living proof that you can’t keep a good TV format down.  The format, originally from Holland, is nearly fifty years old and has already enjoyed four incarnations and three hosts plus a number of one-off specials on the BBC.   Who you most associate with the show will depend on your age […]
